Thanks for the hugs, Carol and Suzanne. It's what I get for reading this forum so irregularly; I missed Grace's all-important purchasing tip! Oh well, I'll try it next time.

My commiserations Bob ! In answer to your question, bloody fast! :D the fastest person managed to complete checkout in 13 seconds! :shock: The trick is to have everything in your cart before 6pm- see my tip below on hunting LBE's :wink:

Oook!

I had my cart ready at 6* - while I was at work. Fortunately I work at a place where they don't block non-work-related web-sites, but it is an open-space area, so I was nervous that my supervisor might decide to walk past me JUST THEN.

Oh, yeah, and there was a slight chance of a missile alert, since our neighbors think Israeli residential areas make good targets.

Ironically, when I was at home in the evening I totally missed out! Taking the time to write a comment was definitely a mistake :roll:

* 8 a.m. my time
What ape? Oook! :book:

You missed at least two - of our dozen two only had commons in, at least from what I can see...

:D:D:D bagged me a birthday cover prize ticket among other niceties. Being a novice in such things, I gather I have to mail it to the shop along with an address (?)
