As it turned out my computer needed a new power cord as the little converter box had stopped working. We went to two places in our local town to get a price to replace the cord. One didn't deal with them and the other one, Radio Rentals wanted $160 for one.
Hubby thought he would check out eBay to see what was available. In the end we paid $20.69 including postage. So as much as I would love to say I shop locally, why would I? Can you believe that price difference? I have received the power supply cord and it is working fine so no complaints from me, of course time will tell if it is going to last. It has a 12 month Warranty.
I watched a two part documentary called Slumming It on ABC iview. I found this very interesting as was quite surprised at how these people live. It is filmed in Mumbai, India and the slums of Dharavi. If you didn't get to see it and would like to, you can take a look here. There is a link to the program via iview on this webpage. It will be well worth it. Seeing how some other people live certainly brings home the simple things in life for me.
Have a great weekend,
