A short while back, Roland, one of our favourite UK readers, sent me an e-mail asking if I could do him a favour.
Roland: Hey Mike D. I want to buy a camera, and the camera costs WAY more in the UK than it does on Amazon. Can I buy the camera, mail it to you, and then have you forward it to me?
Mike D: You betcha.
So that’s what happened. But CLEARLY I had to include a few bonus items for Roland. So I decided to prepare: THE ULTIMATE CARE PACKAGE.
Yesterday Roland received the Ultimate Care Package.
