I pay an annual fee for Prime.
The demo guys just left (plumbing), the shower is gone. The carpenter is here tomorrow then the plumbers are back on Thursday to move the plumbing and set the tub then the carpenter finishes rocking the walls, I tile everything and the shower trim gets installed.
I have to get started on the vanity but no real super hurry there.
As it turns out I get free postage and next day delivery for the next month because even though I cancelled prime I still get a months free trial. So I took advantage of it and ordered some Christmas presents.
We pay one annual fee for Prime and order enough stuff through Amazon that the free shipping more than pays for that annual fee. And Hombre and I each use the account and order under our own names. Not quite so good a deal for a single guy but if you pay more in shipping every year than the one annual fee, it's worth it.
Not to mention perks like Prime Video, free music, free books, unlimited cloud storage and now free grocery delivery. Well not really free as we're paying for it with the annual fee but the cost savings, depending on which and how much of the "free" perks we use can be dramatic.
By the way, just a heads up, Microsoft will be rolling out Edge Chromium next January eventually replacing the current Edge that you use. Chromium is the open source version of Chrome, it'll be better, faster, more secure and a more usable modern browser. Thought ya might want to know, maybe try out Chromium so that at least you have an idea of what's coming and you're familiar with it when it does transition.
Went to a Veterans day Celebration last Saturday at the Pro Football hall of fame. Did a meet and greet with 6 Medal of Honor winners... Awesome people...
Just yesterday, I read a page on highly decorated Veterans. It just makes me feel good to know we have had and still have such wonderful men as those who make a difference in the safety of their fellow American soldiers and defy evil around the globe. And some of them excel in finding out what happened to a soldier's remains and returns them to their families, ahem, Mr. SFC OLLIE!!!
So proud to have been here when you first told us about how you do that when something is up in your area. (as freedombecki, of course)
Oh and all active duty, National Guard, retirees and vets get 40% off Prime annual fee between Nov 6th thru Nov 11th this year.
Mr. P took me to the eye doc today.
Good news my eyes have not changed much at all in the last 5 years.
My small cataracts have not gotten any bigger in the last 10yrs from the 1st diagnosis of them.
Now I get new glasses to replace the broken ones.
The drops they use makes it so that I can't see to well.
Everything looks all wavy like I'm underwater.
I'm just now able to see better this evening.
We got light rain this morning and was in the 60's.
Very nice out today.
