A foreclosure can be reported on your credit report for seven years from the date the foreclosure was filed in the court, according to Gerri Detweiler, author of "Reduce Debt, Reduce Stress." The book is $14.95, and an ebook is available at www.ReduceDebtReduceStress.com.
I recently purchased a motorcycle with an MP3 player, and I've been trying unsuccessfully to transfer my music to the player. I used a flash memory device to copy music from my PC's Windows Media Player software, but the MP3 player couldn't read it.
I have a co-worker who leaves early every day and is frequently away from his desk during the course of the day. We get along very well; however, I'm getting angry about covering for him.

I am on the road a lot. My employer gave me a cell phone to carry on the job and after hours. But once I leave for the day, I turn the thing off so the company can't track me down. Now my employer has informed me the cell has to be on 24/7. I work a 9-to-5 job, and I don't want to be bothered at all hours of the day. What are my rights?
