For example. Postage. Ninety cents is the cheapest stamp you can get...equivalent to the 41 cent first class domestic stamp in the US. Mail to neighboring countries such as Finland and Norway goes by the international rate which is about $1.80 for the first unit. Paul and Kira sent out our Nordic Newsletter to all the GN readers in Sweden in October. It would have been cheaper to send it from the USA, however, we want to maintain a local rather strictly American identity here. We do sent 500 Good News magazines to Scandinavia from the US. It is definitely cheaper an d more efficient than sending them from here. We still do the Baltic and Russian-speaking area mailing from Estonia because of the targeting and content of the mailings.
In the afternoon Paul, Kira and I went into Lindkoping to buy a computer. Theirs is on the brink of expiration and we wanted to get a wireless router for a network. We went to PC City in Lindkoping which was like a Best Buy in the US and bought a laptop that was deeply discounted after the holiday period.
The rest of the day we just spent together, setting up and installing the computer with software. .
It's been great to just be with the Spenser's and spend these three days together. Tomorrow, we go on to Gothenburg.
We had planned to go to Denmark, but our contact there was not able to work out getting together on this trip, so we will plan to see her on another visit.
I barely got an email that came through from Turgeon about next Sabbath in Lafayette which will feature a potluck organized by the men. Don will be responsible for organizing it and be responsible period. Beverly asked me what to prepare. Can anyone please help me with this? Can I bring in some KFC? Should I make a roast? Decisions and responsibilities! We are getting into the home stretch mode and look forward to being home next Thursday night. .
