Yep, it was on the news that by next Christmas, prepare to pay $5
postage for every Christmas card you send. They also said that we should
be prepared for a delivery fee for all mail. Something like $2 for every
item put in our mailboxes, that would include advertising too. If we
dont pay, they will stop delivery. If they stop delivery, there will be
a charge of around $75 to reinstate delivery, each time it occurs.

Parcels are also going to rise dramatically, expect the fee to rise
about 7 times what it is now. That will likely mean the end of online
shopping, because the items that now cost $3 shipping, will cost around
$20 shipping. If this is not enough, those who live in rural areas will
be charged a mileage fee, depending on how far you live from the post
office. That could be as much as $2.50 per mile, and will apply each and
every time you receive mail.

Perhaps this is just a ploy to get us to go buy more Forever stamps
before they DROP the price!

They would if they could!

The one at the Los Angeles zoo a couple of decades ago was green -- he
had algae growing on his fur. He didn't seem all that unhappy. I
wonder why they don't migrate south. Too many hunters? Not enough
seals? No snow to dig a cave in for hibernation?

It's not true that Lucas, in 1947, tried to get Parliament
to repeal Ohm's Law. They withdrew their efforts when they
met too much resistance.

Maybe it was the bars on his cage.
