Royal Mail

I bought this Royal Digital Rate Scale (RC40) years ago at CostCo.

I remember having some difficulty setting things up with the cable provided. (I had to buy a converter cable in order to connect it to my computer to download rates.) Once I figured the trick out, it worked like a charm! (I was an active eBay seller those days, so this scale came in very handy for estimating S/H without having to go to the post office.)

Then, one day, the scale inherited a glitch where the only thing it could do was turn on and display the weight in the standard unit (ounces) - not too convenient when weighing packages that weighed several pounds! It wouldn't even turn off with the ON/OFF button; it would just eventually turn off on its own. I kept the scale, despite its glitch, because it was still useful, albeit in a limited way.

Fast forward to tonight: I was weighing an envelope which seemed just a little too heavy to be 1oz. Out of old habit, I pressed the OFF button ... and it worked! Hooray! My scale has recovered from its malady and is fully functional!

It's time for me to update the shipping rates! Now, where did I put the cables ...

Hello Kitty

I took my cats to the vet yesterday for their booster shots.

Poor Yoshi! He's such a scaredy cat! He would not get out of the kennel, not even when I flipped it over to one side so that he could "fall out" ! He'd put his little legs out to the sides of the kennel to hold on! I was left with no other choice but to pop the top!

His entire examination was done with him huddled up in the corner of the kennel!

I just learned here that cats aren't getting the medical attention that they should on a regular basis! I'm glad I did my part in watching out for mine :)

Green Thumb

My grandmother gave me this plant, a Alocasia Amazonica, also known as Elephant's Ear, or, as she called it in Spanish, cara de caballo (horse's face).

On closer inspection, the leaves have been chewed up! :(

A caterpillar? No! My cats!

Outside, I planted a carambola, or star fruit, tree (Averrhoa carambola) that I was given at work. Right now, it basically looks like a big twig!

"Tomorrow, Tomorrow ..."

"... I love you, Tomorrow,
You're only a day away!"

Tomorrow is the grand opening of the first Best Buy store in Puerto Rico!

Lucky for me, I have a brother who works at one. Unfortunately, he's in Texas! I have asked him to consider relocating ...

Going Postal ... again

I just discovered this:


Hooray! ^_^ Time to bring out the stamps!

Flower Power

I knew Addis Ababa translated to "new flower," but I didn't know which word meant what. Thanks to an English-Amharic dictionary, now I know!

Addis = አዲስ = new

Ababa = አበባ = flower

All this was spurred by Fred Flare asking What's Your Fave Flower?. I wanted to answer that it was me, but, alas, "Addis" does not mean flower.
