Yes it is true. Amazon Prime which gives us two day free shipping and a host of other goodies is ten years old. As a Prime member I love the two day free shipping and I love the ability to watch Downton Abbey (seasons 1-4) whenever I want. There are also other perks that are listed on a birthday page. I will provide a link to the Amazon Home page after that you have to click on the birthday page. Thank you Charles for recommending Amazon to all lizards.

On Sundays I usually watch NJTV because they have cooking shows. This morning when I punched “23” in to my DTV converter box it tuned into “22.3.” I have tried to punch in “23” again but it did not work. There is nothing mentioned on njtvonline.org so I thought that at least I should put this into an LGF page.
I found a listing that mentions the 22.3 station. stationindex.com

Today I went to King of Prussia PA. I was going to stay at Wegman’s until the afternoon. There were several people, like myself, who were trying to get onto the internet. Wegman’s told anyone who asked at the information desk that their internet was down. Hearing that news I decided to go to the mall and go looking for a few items. I had a very small list. One was a polo shirt which I got at LLBean. The other item was an insulated holder for ice cream. Only two stores in the mall had the item I wanted, Bloomingdale’s and JCPenney. I looked up the item and noticed the price ranged from $12 to $19 on Amazon. I figured that any price I see in the mall that falls in that range would be a good deal. I tried JCPenney first since it was the closest to the public transit entrance of the mall. I found the item but it had only a bar code and no price. I took out my iPhone and snapped a picture of the bar code. For some reason it came back with a toddler sized sundress. So I took the item to the cashier. I asked for a price look-up. The cashier told me $30. I thanked her and walked out of JCPenney. In Bloomingdale’s I found the same item with a price sticker that read $15.99. I pulled out a $20 bill from my wallet and walked over to a very polite salesman who was very happy to ring up my purchase. After this experience I can see why JCPenney is in financial trouble. They have very few salespeople and prices that are not good deals.
