I noticed that Amazon has been amazing with shipping things ahead of schedule this Christmas season (so far). It looks like they rented a bunch of vans from Enterprise to keep up with the demand, as I've seen a lot of mysterious white vans delivering my packages lately :)

I had a package from Home Depot that was originally scheduled for delivery on Tuesday (12/7) then it changed to Friday (12/3) then FedEx said "delayed" and showed it still in Olive Branch, MS. Then, back to "scheduled delivery, on Wednesday (12/8). Delivered this morning by FedEx.
New generator was originally scheduled for delivery on Wednesday (12/8) was notified that it's on the truck for delivery tomorrow. (we'll see...)

What did you end up getting?
my daughter works for a mattress company and is highly regarded there, she got a great discount on a Queen beauty rest hybrid mattress and an adjustable base. She paid for the balance of the order & had it delivered to me. red carpet delivery service, they set up the new bed & hauled away my old stuff

$1.25 for a peanut? :eek:
$1.25 for a 16 oz bottle.

Unsalted of course. I have no need for trace cornstarch and maltodextrin present in the salty nuts, although a couple bottles of salty nuts were purchased merely for taste testing.

It’s great since I can make super cheap peanut butter in a blender.

Had a pellet stove installed today. Took 2 months to get it once we ordered it, but it's finally here and installed. Installed price was around $5200, but it SHOULD make the house a bit more comfortable while cutting our electric heat bill considerably.

Got my 3rd jab yesterday. Sore arm and just a bit tired. A+. Previous two took me down for a couple of days.

Long story >> Short story ... had a problem on a website trying to order during a web-only sale. CS sent me a coupon for 25% off my total order by email to use in store. I go, get my stuff, check out. Out in the car I'm looking at the receipt and it doesn't seem right somehow Turns out they knocked off something like 75%. Umm, OK. Cool.

Stopped to grab a burrito at a local place for lunch and the girl working there told me it was on the house today, pretty nice surprise.

Ohio State (somehow) won the Rose Bowl.

With how they looked in the 1st half, I really expected them to lose. Their D was really, really, really bad.

I'm not saying it was a good thing but the games today compared to yesterday...it was a good day.
