It was raining on and off today, so apart from a quick run to Argos and the hardware store, I stayed home, and wrote a blog post for Cloudmark, which should appear in a few days. Paula did another shopping trip while I was working. There is not real equivalent to Argos in America. There’s a tiny storefront with a huge warehouse behind it. You order the goods from a catalog, write down the numbers, hand in your slip at the counter, pay for the goods and they are fetched from the warehouse for you. It’s a cross between shopping on Amazon and going to a real store where you can poke at the goods beforehand, except Argos was around long before Amazon.
