Ordering something from Amazon and paying the cheapest/longest delivery-time courier cost - only to have the package turn up just outside the timing of the most expensive/quickest option. smile



That often happens. I bought a partial replacement cover for a Harmony One and was given a choice between expensive new and pristine, less expensive slightly used, and very cheap battered and bruised. I chose the latter. It arrived new and pristine.


 



Yeah ordering from China and getting the item in 1 week feels so amazing

Especially when it's normally 4 weeks

Lock him up!

About half the time things from China arrive faster than things from Auckland.

I have had stuff delivered this year from China, HK, Singapore, MANY States of the USA, and Australia ALL faster than items I have had shipped from inside NZ.

Many things make us smile throughout the day. Just one? The smell of coffee. I would say that I have an addiction.

I saw a vehicle - I think it was a Camry - where they'd removed/rearranged the letters so it simply read "Toyota Car".

A young one in my family got two Marigold plants from a nursery and two bowls. Nice.  She tells me they arent doing well, so I visit and have a look. She took the plants out of the tray and put them in the bowls which are bigger. So there is a half inch gap around the sides.... I had a silent chuckle. They are wilting (for some reason....)  So I packed them up with potting mix, gave them a few small waters to spread the moisture and two hours later they are normal! She's happy. Small things like that are very small, but very cute too.

The way long-time-member-but-infrequent-posters crawl out of the woodwork here when freitasm sends out a 'Geekzone giveaway ' email.  Everyone loves a freebie.

That my niece who already completed a nursing degree and had a good paying secure career as a neonatal nurse, gave up that security to do a Bachelor of Midwifery which she completed today. Not a particularly small thing, but it really made me smile. From ear to ear, for her!

Bit of a waste of unused letters - could have been My Toyota Car.

 

Could also have considered:

 

Racy Atom Toy

 

or

 

Tarmac Toy

Congrats on catching my spelling mistake. There are male Midwives for your information.

The way that my youngest daughter says 'Good morning' to me every morning. Sweet, sing-songy tone, lovely.
