What a beautiful day for a drive .... and good thing too as we had to drive to Port Huron to pick up a replacement cell phone. Ed called Verizon to see if they would ship us a telephone but no, they couldn't do that. Something about regulations.

We are eligible for a discount on the new phone, but to get the discount you have to apply for a rebate. OK that's no problem. The catch is they cannot send the rebate card to Canada. Good thing we have friends in the US that we can send the card to.

I really wish the Canadian phone companies would come up with a comparable plan to Verizon's plan.
