I got it when i was scared of the mess/effort with having grinders etc etc.
I quite like it but i hopefully i move to a "real" coffee machine soon enough.
Gee you are a sceptic. There is no need to be rude, you just need to ask for elaboration.
I once worked as a grunt in the legal industry. It is quite common for teams of lawyers to work on a deal for obscene hours right until dawn to enable deal closing to take place by a certain date or time. For several days. Sometimes over weekends.
At about 3 am in the morning, all the secretaries and paralegals are long gone, and all coffee joints are closed, and everyone is too tired to refresh the percolators. This was a long time ago when decent coffee machines are unaffordable even to blue chip corporations. You are tired and grumpy, and other than drugs, coffee is the only thing keeping you up. But the coffee is god-awful, usually dregs from the percolator. Which is where salt comes in.
I wont hold my breath for an apology.
It also basically implies we (people who buy low value goods from vendors in other countries) all deal in drugs, guns and prohibited agricultural products and don't pay (other) taxes.
So yeah, the usual make-up-whatever-crap-you-want to justify the desired conclusion.
Just received my Epic shoe trees from Endless. Normal shipping, actually pretty fast.
1. My trees are medium, and they are already slightly too big for my Meermin size UK 8.5 Hiro lasts. They fit Loake UK 8 though, so go figure that out.
2. Stated on the box Made in the USA? Weird, the website said they are made in China. Same diff I suppose.
3. Virtually same quality with the Herring trees, except for the expandable toe area.
I am happy and all set where trees are concerned.
In the market for trees myself and by chance I have just bought a pair of Loake UK8 F-fitting.
Do you think the small is the way to go then as they would fit both the Loake and the Meermin
Shopping on foreign websites - if it saves money - also leaves people with more money in their pocket to spend on Australian services or goods. Online shopping creates jobs, just not in Gerry's stores. It creates jobs for couriers, pickup depots, Australia Post and so on. I'm not clear why a job selling imported Chinese fridges in HN is superior and more authentically Australian than a courier job delivering parcels or a job in Australia Post.
Every time HN sells a fridge or dishwasher or microwave hes making money from all the small suburban mum and dad white goods stores he displaced. Every TV he sells is dancing on the grave of Pye, Rank Arena, Kriesler, AWA, Thorn, Philips Australian manufacturing plants that no longer exist.
The GST LV threshold of $1,000 is NOT a TAX LOOPHOLE. Its is the law in Australia. Parking in a free 2 hour parking spot in the city is not a loophole from parking in a $36 multi story park.
DJs profit slump of an extraordinary 40% is NOT due to a 10% difference in prices on something less than 3% of goods purchased online from overseas in Australia.
Not only is this writing sloppy it borders on deliberate and willful lies and misrepresentation.
I loved this bit:
Mr Harvey yesterday said smugglers could be exploiting the cyber-shopping phenomenon to post drugs to Australia.
"What's coming in, in all these parcels?" he said.
"Have they got guns? Drugs? Prohibited things for agriculture? They're not being checked. If I wanted to bring something illegal into Australia that's the best way of doing it."
