You don't even have to put ice in there. Nobody checks that.
Oh sure, shortly after getting that email, I got another one telling me that my payment info had been successfully processed.
Oh well. I guess the reason I pre-ordered the collector's edition was because I was happy to give them my money.
But it's still a weird duo of emails to send out.
Either something has gone terribly wrong with the pigments in this old paint, or Saint Corona might have been from Orion.
I like to imagine prayers arriving in heaven as emails.
According to Snopes, "Saint Corona" is a mostly forgotten saint from the 100s who, until this month, was only invoked for "Superstitions about treasure-hunting".
Just imagine her sitting up on a cloud and checking her email and suddenly there's about a million unread prayers.
It must be completely overwhelming.
That businessman on the top card is R.W. Sears. CEO of Sears Roebuck.
It's the first card of a set of cards showing the inside of the Sears mail-order facility.
This was a pretty common set of cards. It's not particularly exciting, but I assume it was cheap since it's basically advertising.

Turns out not all magnetic build surfaces are the same. I've been using and loving "Easy Peelzy", but I finally damaged it by crashing the hot end into it.
So I got a different brand. I thought it would be the same, except it looks cooler, all red with a grid printed on it.
Nope. The magnetic film wasn't nearly as strong and my whole build surface slid right off the printer mid print!
Had to go to the post office today. The streets are strangely empty of people, but there are still plenty of parked cars.
A restaurant near me has a signboard saying "We sell loaves of bread!!"
I think they always did that, but I'll bet it's suddenly become a big part of their business, since all the stores are not just out of bread and pasta, they're also out of flour.
There are a FEW good plague movies on Archive :
Things To Come (1935)- This early talky is a landmark science fiction film. Worth watching.
Panic In The Streets (1950) - A Noir-style drama about health department agents trying to track down patient zero.
Last Man On Earth (1964) - Vincent Price stars in a film based on 'I Am Legend'. He plays it very differently than Will Smith did.
