Well, I just initiated a chat and asked for the discount, and I guess they're being inundated, and unfortunately, it was a no go for me. CS did say I could cancel my prime, then buy again in a few hours, but Amazon has been good to me, so I'm not going to game the system. Of course, I may try a phone chat mid-day… » 1/24/15 12:28am Saturday 12:28am

I remember watching this vaguely, mainly b/c Gilligan was on it and because we LOVED all the Sid & Marty Kroft shows. I also remember being disappointed when it was canceled. Anyone remember what year this aired? Besides the obvious Pufenstuf, I also remember loving Sigmund and the Sea Monsters. » 1/19/15 6:39pm 1/19/15 6:39pm

I get SO tired of hearing parents say "Ain't no one got time for that!" You know what? If you don't have time for your children, don't have them! If you choose to be a parent, then make time for it. And DON"T expect preschool to be able to undo all the negative example setting you do at home. (Full disclosure: I ran a… » 1/12/15 8:31pm 1/12/15 8:31pm

I happen to be the ONLY one in my current association that refuses to upgrade beyond what comes with… » 1/12/15 7:59pm 1/12/15 7:59pm

This is a place where the differences in male-female communication patterns are worth a mention. Men tend to reply to someone talking about issues with advice, where women tend to reply with sympathy. (Yes, I am WAY over-simplifying here.) Women are often frustrated by men's responses when they're trying to "talk it… » 1/09/15 2:06pm 1/09/15 2:06pm

+1 for the Viva. An added bonus is they're a LOT softer than bounty, and are therefore a better sub for Kleenex than TP. They're also better to wipe one's mouth with b/c of their softness. But even on sale, they cost more than similar sq footage of Bounty does on sale, so probably why they do not qualify as "best bang… » 12/30/14 3:37pm 12/30/14 3:37pm

I bought 4 of them. (Yes, I check the Kindle deal of the day page, and am undeterred by the fact they list these as a "kids deal;" we all KNOW C&H are for adults!) Just a reminder, it's a good way to use up the expiring soon "no rush shipping" credits if you haven't already. » 12/30/14 4:57pm 12/30/14 4:57pm
