CDR Virtual Vacations presents On this day 2020: Lots more scenery today as we drove from Queenstown to Te Anau. Queenstown is on the longest lake in NZ (50 miles!) and Te Anau is the biggest lake by water volume on the South Island. We also saw a very co-operative New Zealand Swamp Harrier sat on top of a bush.

One state representative in Texas was asked if FEMA disaster relief money. Could be used by people to pay off the multi thousand dollar electric bills they received for the 5 days they didn't have power. He said yes it could. BS the electric company needs to eat those bills!🤬
I don't want my tax dollars used that way.
You are so right.
I completely agree.
Also normally what FEMA gets away with saying ..
is it was an “act of God” ....
and we don’t cover acts of God.
It says so in ALL insurance coverages .
It’s just too small print to read so people don’t see it BEFORE they sign ... 🥲
Same goes for your car insurance too!
Everything is always money and politics...
😭😭😭

I’ve just done a stocktake. I have some of most designs, but more fabric is now on order! I have raised over £2500 for my rescue now 😊🦔

Oh wow! That's a big thing here as well. My favorite is my NASCAR checkered flag, and this one...Can we order from you? Cost with shipping? I'm interested. As my collection of 13 masks was recently stolen for my car...

As long as you have PayPal to pay, yes you can. Just message me with what you want and I’ll sort out the details :)

I write Homemade Face Masks on the CN22 customs form. To my knowledge nobody has had to pay US import duty on them so far as the value is low. Noel (@AZtortMom ) would be able to confirm. 😊

Postage £4 to USA for up to 8 masks, masks £3 each, payment by PayPal.
What is that in American money? 😟

Yes, just to clarify I feel horrible what is happening to the people of Texas. If FEMA money is used for relief on the electric bills. Then so be it but the power company's neglected to upgrade their systems when warned in 2011. It is not justifiable for them to price gouge their customers.

Good afternoon everyone, no sleep last night but it wasn't because of pain. I think I got to much sleep when I came home from my procedure. Fell asleep around 7am and just woke up. I think my circadian rhythm will be out of whack for a few days. Minimal pain today!😁

According to Google I am charging US$4.23 per mask and US$5.64 for postage at current exchange rates.

However, you pay me through PayPal in GB£ and PayPal does the currency conversion to take money from your bank/card in US$ so I get the right amount 😊

If it’s just your body clock that’s gone wry then that’s great 😊

We had showers yesterday if you live in Broomfield, CO--parts from a United 777 engine rained down. Flight went back to DIA successfully. No one hurt on the ground, but some property damage. The sun was shining brightly.
Yipes! I've heard of raining cats and dogs, and that's scary enough, but raining airplane parts? I repeat - YIPES!!
