New CDC Smoking Ads

Proverbs 31:10

A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.  And that describes my wife.  She has been by my side every day but one as I go through this ordeal, comforting me, doing her best to manage household finances.

Eagle, Idaho Post Office Incompetence

My wife shipped the Windows 8 ASuS laptop back to the seller September 3 at the Eagle Post Office.  No refund showed up on my Discover card.  Where was it?  According to, the tracking history showed tat Eagle PO had accepted it, but there was no other tracking history.  If it left Eagle PO it never made it to another PO.  Worse the clerk at Egle PO was completely incurious as to why.
