Could a steering repair to a Civic damage an XM antenna?

I gave my '07 Honda Civic to a mechanic who said it needed a replacement of the steering rack and/or pump, which he did. Problem: aftermarket XM radio was working perfectly before it went in, antenna had intermittent short which prevented radio from getting signal at least 50% of the time when I got it back.

Please fix this bear's coat. Thank you.

The leather-thing holding it on snapped and one of the toggles has come off my duffle-coat. I have the toggle itself, and I have acquired some spare leather-things, but I'm not sure of the best way to re-attach. I don't have a sewing machine, and I don't think I know anyone who does. I have discovered that a thing called 'Fabric glue' exists, but is it any better than superglue? Will superglue work on wool/leather? I could put a few hand-stitches, but the thickness of both bits of material make me think that I might not be able to do a very good job. [more inside]

How to remove horizontal blinds before toddler does!

Rented apartment, flimsy aluminium blinds savaged by toddler. I cannot figure out their quick release mechanism. I've tried rocking (suggested here,) prying, and cursing. There are no accessible latches, tabs, or clips. All but one sit flush to window frames, so they cannot slide sideways. They have a Faber sticker, they are less than two years old, and likely from a Canadian supplier. I can't find a relevant Faber installation guide. I popped the end cap off the one that isn't tight against a window frame (pic,) and I took a picture of the plate attached to the wall (pic.) I'm sure there is some dead simple manoeuvre that I've missed!

I vacuumed a part of my printer.

I may have accidentally vacuumed up part of my printer... I was cleaning up around my computer with the vacuum cleaner and I started to vacuum around the printer. My cat likes to sit on top of it so lots of hair tends to get inside. Anyways I stuck the nozzle inside and it sucked up the foam pad that the printer head gets cleaned on. So here's the two part question: 1. Is it possible to get a replacement foam pad? If not, is it worth cutting up the vacuum bag and retrieving it? 2. How can keep my cat from hanging out on my printer? My printer is a Canon Pixma 9000 pro mk II.
