The great thing is that it's never too warm or too cold and it feels like lying on a cloud.
We have one of those and really like it.

Mine doesn't.
Sterling might like the other model called the Fire HDX. It also has 4G available and can make phone calls. The HDX

Thank you for caring. I am feeling much better today. Once I fell into a good solid sleep, I heard nothing going on around me. Even Teddy didn't bark. When I don't get a good sleep, I am useless until I do.

Addie, what exactly is "hamburger"? Here "a hamburger" is the whole burger sandwich but it seems to be something more than that in the US. Is "hamburger" in the sense that you've used it in your post just the ground or chopped meat or does it have something else in it?(Wikipaedia has an article but it isn't very useful).

I just remembered that if you have a smartphone, you can probably set up a WiFi hotspot and use your new tablet that way. Stirling doesn't have a smart phone. I do. When we are somewhere with no WiFi and Stirling wants to use his tablet for web stuff, I make my phone do a WiFi hotspot. I have lots more data on my plan than he does.

It's ground beef - mince.

That's exactly what I do when traveling, sometimes on long trips I'll set up my tablet as a 9" GPS having it getting Wi-Fi of the phone.

When we went to Niagara falls the hotel wanted $20a day for what was likely terrible Wi-Fi, since our room faced the falls, I still picked up US signals so we all used that instead.

Paying bills, grateful that we have the funds to pay bills. Actually, I'm stalling at paying bills by playing here at DC. I did take care of the one for the major credit card since it would ding us with interest and service charges if I was late. I did balance the "checking" account earlier, but I'll wait until all the bills are paid before I reward myself with a glass of wine.

Could get odd if you didn't wait.
