It's a machine (computer) that weighs your package and tells you how much postage to put on it. You can pay with your credit card or debit card. Easy as pie.

Be warned whoever is after me that Canada Post is notorious for taking a looooong time to deliver things. Did I mention a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time?

The ones here keep the post office doors open 24/7. Granted there isn't anyone on staff after like 4:30pm, but the doors are open 24/7 to access the APC.

That's okay, Alix - maybe you and Ken can combine your "holding time" for the apron :) After all, he IS a member!

Count me in. It sounds like great fun. It might be kind of hard to take a picture of myself in the apron, but I will figure something out.

I'd love to participate in this game but I think I should be disqualified because I will want to keep the thing! Who gets the apron in the end? I don't have one. I need one. And I want one!

Of course, Kathy will. She is doing all the work - came up with the idea, etc. Maybe we could come up with another idea also that would give us all something tangible from our experience at DC. My thinking hat isn't working this morning, but perhaps someone else's will be better.

A chef's hat, or a blank recipe book with different meal catagories, that everyone can write their favorite recipe in........
