Last weekend we saw an USPS truck going around on Sunday

It was a mystery that unraveled Monday and since FedEx, UPS do not deliver on that day, the gorilla that is Amazon grows again.

The USPS may be saved and yes, there was a business deal.

I don't care for it

Even more I think it's horrible the stores which keep encroaching on Thanksgiving Day with their Christmas Sales, such as Black Friday and Black Thursday Night or Midnight Madness. Give the employees a break, people can wait to shop a day. Maybe if labor groups, local governments, and supportive retail establishments would work get some holiday laws installed, similar to the old Blue Laws, retail workers might have a few rights to actually enjoy their holidays a bit more. I never go out on Black Friday anymore, not in years. I wish everyone would boycott those late Thursday and Midnight sales, but in today's world I think selfishness wins out over regard for the retail worker. Yeah, I know some benefit by double pay working on holidays, but their family time still suffers and not all of them are doing it by choice.

I'm seeing "Black November" so they've extended it for entire month. I was a bit irked this past week getting spam email about Veteran's Day sales. Really, folks...when was the last time you passed by a store that had a sign saying everything was at full retail price today? Wink

Was pushing Veterans Day as a big ploy for car sales. i know other stores make a big deal about Veterans Day, too but if you're buying a car because of that well, that does make a huge sale possible. If veretans wait for such a day and seeing what other deals are offered along the course of the yr. there's really no big difference other than pushing for a certain group of people. Pssssstt...why not have day that we need your money sale, sure we'll give you the best price because you're a "customer". dang!!! salesspeople -----Willy Happy

When I need furniture, I usually search something interesting in web. Now, the internet shoppings are very common and available for all. In web, I can compare different prices product and choose the most cheap.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
