I just did some online shopping at Staples.ca: a " Google Nexus 7 by ASUS, Android 4.2, 32GB, 4G Cellular" for Stirling, a " NeatCo NeatReceipts PC Mobile
Scanner" for me (I have one that is tied to MS Office, I'll try to sell that one), some portfolios that I give to my clients with their tax stuff, and some LightScribe DVDs that I use for my clients. I had $40 worth of coupons off the price. It is all supposed to arrive on Tuesday. Free shipping on $20 worth, so I qualified.

I've been having issues printing the labels with the LightScribe software, so I downloaded some shareware. I'm doing the 10 day free trial on the first one. The other one has a 15 day free trial, which I will try out next. The first one is pretty good, but not perfect. I'll see how it goes.

I'll also just signed up for the 10 day free trial of e-courier.ca. It allows me to send and receive stuff encrypted. This is very useful in dealing with my clients. It has all its servers in Canada, so I don't have to worry about the Patriot Act.

AU = Gold

Goldens, there were two retrievers in the car. Clever, I like figuring out license plates.

Thanks. It might have been easier if I had seen the doggies, but only might.

Heh. Got the gold part, then was stuck trying to figure out the element EN.

We're still carrying a Motorola W755 that we purchased in June 2009. We felt compelled to buy one because pay phones have gone the way of the dinosaur. Over the course of the past 3.75 years, our annualized cost has amounted to less than $150. Since we only carry it for emergencies and our carrier wanted us to supply a social security number for most all of their plans, I opted for the prepaid option and currently have a credit balance of over $350. I do not look forward to having to buy a new battery. Thinking about those with Obamaphones is enough to give me knots in my shorts.
