Now comes the time for getting acquainted with our new products. Assembly instructions. Operating manuals. Warranties. Oh my. It’s not just the digital camera, the cell phone, the hand steamer, the bagless vacuum with three different filters, it’s also the computer which had to be replaced in an ill-timed holiday rush....more
Ahh... the holidays are upon us... Images of sugar plums dancing in our heads while dreaming if Santa Claus will be providing us with treats (or a big fat lump of coal) under our Christmas trees. Who am I kidding?! That is what I want.. those images on the books I read to my son at bedtime.
I'm an eBay junkie and bidding is the cure
I've become an eBay junkie. I know, seriously, where have I been?
