Wow, long link, hope it works. Our recycling commission buys them in bulk and we can buy them for the discounted rate. I think mine was $35 US and it was retail for 100 back then. The town pays a tipping fee for trash and per pound for recycling, so anything to keep stuff out of the waste to energy plant saves us money.

Thanks for the link. We have a worm farm that produces 'worm wee'. The worms eat kitchen vegetable and fruit refuse, but there are certain things you can't put in, I think onions are a no no, and citrus.  It stinks, but is very good for the soil.  Grin

It's certainly not getting rich money, but having any promos at Apple is a big step in the right direction.

That's good to hear. Too often lately the news of promos has been so-so.

Compost - we have an Earth machine. Things don't really decompose here Nov-March if not for a longer stretch. It gets almost full in the winter, then we bury the stuff in the spring when we turn the garden soil. We get very few things seeding, probably because it is so deep, though I do know that phenomena. Maybe we will try something different this year, my garden is not doing great because of the water situation, and I went out there and weeded a little bit, but my heart isn't in it. The earth machine keeps the rodents down, which keeps it from attracting coyotes.

I probably should just put the compost under a thin layer of soil in the spring and just see what happens. I'm just throwing money away on veggie flats and now, berry bushes.

Never heard of an earth machine  :confused:. I just scatter the composted soil in the garden, or dig it in when I plant something new, or top up pot plants. I've just put some on the lawn to even up a few low spots, so it should be interesting to see what comes up as I'll have to pull out whatever appears, or mow it down. :icon_rolleyes:

It really is. I am now seeing substantial sell-through on the novels that were in my Historical Fiction promo.

So, yesterday, I received an email from D2D inviting me to submit a book for consideration in the Apple 2020 Recent Bestsellers Promotion. Today, I received another email from D2D inviting me to submit a book for consideration in the Apple 2020 Science Fiction and Fantasy Promotion. I applied for both, seeing as how it costs nothing but a few moments of my time, but it's encouraging to see Apple stepping up like this.

That joke was originated with the Cabbage Patch dolls craze.

"In 1983, a Wisconsin radio announcer joked that a B-29 bomber would drop 2,000 Cabbage Patch Kids into Milwaukee County Stadium. People should bring catcher’s mitts, and whoever grabbed a doll needed to hold up their credit card to be photographed.

At least a dozen people actually showed up."
