keep in mind, the mail

1) use up your stamps before Jan 9, 2006 — the price of stamps will increase by $0.02. the post office says it’s to cover $3.1 B cover pension expenses. hmmmm….

2) “…the biggest mailing day will be Dec. 19, when about 280 million cards and letters will be canceled. For mail carriers, Dec. 23 will be the biggest

    Emily Post claims that USPS policy forbids carriers taking gifts over $20, but the USPS website has a publication claiming they can be accepted, but should be accepted with others in the carrier’s office. Whether or not anyone – carrier or customer – follows that is not an answer I have.
