If they can be had cheaper like that I need to look more then. But I remember thus summer I had to put the readers on the outside of my sunglasses to read, as that worked best. Thats where the nerdfest comment came from.

Some years ago I bought similar sunglasses by Protekt and really liked them, but I can't find them now, so perhaps they are not being made any more.



PROTEKT - Reviews & Brand Information - 20/20 Marketing Ltd. Maple Ridge, B.C. V2X 0T4 , - Serial Number: 75006891

That is where I am heading Mead, but I am not there yet. I am one of those types that have to have those things at the very tip of my nose as I see very well past arms length. I cant see out of them when not reading. Now I know why as a youth I wondered why some people wouldn't wear their glasses "correctly".

I get my sunglasses from Zenni Optical. I have three pair. Two are Bifocal Polarized, and one is bifocal non-polarized. If I remember the the Polarized are pricey, about $85 delivered, but they are the best. The regular are about $35. If you go with single focal length, no polarize, i.e just reading, you can get them down to about $15!

Last thing I orderd was dog food. Generally cheaper with no tax and delivered to back door. Hard to beat.

I just ordered a hard to find book, used. It cost me $40 (retails for $250 new), and I was able to use some discover points to get it.

Now, here's a necessity of life... Oh well, might as well buy utter cr*p if I can afford it, and if the cr*p makes me happy I guess.



I'll buy more once the US version of the cards is available, and they will be much cheaper than the imported ones like these.

Yes, but the Amazon basics brand is far more economical. LBYM and all that...

W2R, it really is! DW is the real coffee hound in our house, and she mixes this 50/50 with regular Decaf for the morning coffee.

I'm sure there are many more positive reviews but I guess they haven't made it back yet...

Ordered a replacement thermal glass (inside piece) for the oven. It was cracked by one of the kiddos who obviously needs more practice in the kitchen.

A non-slip pad that goes under a 4 X 6 rug.

Amazon Prime is pretty amazing.
