The Brown Man, whom my dog despises, just delivered The Power of Zero (David McKnight) and The Circle (Dave Eggers). My boss insisted recommended I read The Circle.

Do your hate your grandson's parents giving him a box of 1,000 stickers to put on everything? Or is this just payback...

Well, this purchase goes in the disappointed category.

Let me mention again this purchase wasn't from Amazon, but directly from the manufacturer in the UK.

So, the item finally arrived today and I was excited, only to open the box (a very thin cardboard box) do discover the metal ring dented and not usable. The mesh still is useable.

I realized that the purchase was done via PayPal which has a buy resolution process. So, I opened a resolution case requesting a refund. To be continued...

But, I was looking forward to some halogen fried fish

I'm thinking about buying a golf umbrella. The price of the one I have my eye on is double on Amazon.ca (the Canadian site) versus Amazon.com (the U.S. Site). So I checked on a Canadian vendor, Golftown, and the price online or instore is the lower one.

It's always a good idea to shop around!

I ordered some canine probiotics, some work type gloves (to carry bales of hay and such), false eyelashes and a tinted moisturizer with SPF 30.

I just got a heating pad for my sore back (too much yard work for me). It's great, turns on very quickly and covers the entire back and has a nice controller:

Most recent purchase - medication for our elderly cats - Revavast and PetTinic - recommended by our long term vet - and has done wonders for her. She has beginnings of kidney problems from age which also results in some iron, etc. deficiency if not addressed.

Excited to get my new Trail Hitch today and hopefully Swagman XC Cross-Country 2-Bike Hitch Mount Rack later today. Watching the bikes bounce on the car mounted bike rack was enough to age me.. time I upgraded to a hitch mount and thus be able to take the bike on long trips with us. It included the locks and stabilization, hope it lives up to the reviews. Last time we stayed in a motel they got mad we wanted to bring our bikes inside...i'm like seriously, your parking lot is not that safe and it doesn't bother anyone else..they were not dirty so not sure what the issue was.
