Unfortunately, I am boycotting Amazon, over a dispute I am having with them, and a nasty email they sent to me.
Yikes, I'm shocked. What did they say to you? :eek:
Wow. What happened.

A vendor asked me to give a review of a product. I simply stated that I could not review the product, as I did not receive it, because Amazon lost it. The vendor must have said something to Amazon, because a few days later, Amazon sent a nasty email to me, stating that telling the vendor they lost my package was harassment. :lol:

I was going to renew my Prime Membership this month, but now I am not. I told Amazon this, and their response was they did not care whether I renewed it or not.

That is really weird. I've always had great customer service from Amazon. And their stupid Amazon Delivery Service has lost a couple of packages of mine and they never accused me of harassment when I reported it. Was it the same person who accused you of harassment and said they didn't care if you renewed your Prime?

Yeah, I had a run-in with a wacky-doodle vendor a few years ago and I had no trouble with them.

You should report him. I think Amazon would rather have you than him.

Definitely report this person. I've never gotten a response like that from anyone at Amazon. I agree with RJ, they'd rather have you than this person. This person could lose them customers.

:yes:
Not just the necklace, she made the earrings too, and she demonstrated how she blows the glass for the small beads and makes neckaces and earrings. She works at whole foods too, she moved out here when our store was opened, she used to work at the Encinitas store where I went when I was camping at South Carlsbad. When she moved here she had to move her kiln and her studio, so I told her about teh Coachella Val;ley Art Center, run by Bill Shinsky, whom I met when we were both videod for the listen to a veteran project, Bill is the calmest vietnam veteran I know, and now has two Open Studio days,I went to the first one and it was as great as I expected, got to meet about a dozen artists and see how they work, I have talked to a bunch of people I think would like this and amny of themn will come to t he second day, March 17rh. Glass work is a specialty and there is also a welder, who. works with old horse shoes, and several painters. I also met a woman who belongs to a rock group I'm gonna join, she recognized the rock on a bracelet I was wearing and we started to talk about gem and mineral shows.

I knew tgis necklace would match my Eileen Fisher cherise tee shirt and now I got a Clinique lipstick that also matches.

And we had an unexpected guest arrive.

He eventually wandered off, hopefully making it home. And people wonder why I dream about animals. :lol:

The Wife and I dance at a studio called Rigby's Jig. I couldn't resist taking a pic of their sign in the lobby.

Love the snow pictures and bunny pictures, Lupine. :yes: How often do you see snow there?

You should have honked your horn at the peacock, Lupine. :lol: Okay, that is probably just funny to me. :D Peacocks, at least the India Blues that we had, will respond vocally to a horn.
