Rap that is so wonderful! It really hits home looking at all the kids' signatures.

Con, congrats!

This was yesterday, but... packages! :D I had placed a few orders over the weekend and was really surprised that they all arrived in one day.

Thanks everyone!

I don't really know where to post this...

I did not get the position that I applied for at work. :(
I really feel I have proved myself. They said they had some really strong candidates from outside the company and they went with them instead.
I'm pretty upset, but I prayed that God would do what was best for me, so I have to believe that this is it, or that something else may come along.

In the post today my copy of Every Which Way But Dead, I've decided to get three early ones I did not have, but the 4th one Fist Full of Charms is proving to be more elusive as I want only the American editions and that one I can find but it's pricey with the postage from the States on top of the 60$asked for it.

Weather permitting. I'm waiting for a new filter (for my new lens) which should arrive on Tuesday. It cost £168 having been reduced from £281, so I got a bit of a bargain. :D

Indeed. :)

They put up a pic of the building, though I got it wrong, it's not quite done yet.

Chris and Penfold, congratulations on your bargains. That always feels good! Glad you've got some time off to Penfold, that feels even better!

Rap, even though it's not yet complete, I'm glad they've sent your group a picture of the progress. People don't often get to see the direct results of their donations.
