George,
As a regular ebayer, coffee roaster, coffee lover and beyond, you items have
me drooling with envy. Don't feel alone, I'm having withdrawls as we speak.
Were starting up a new business so $ has to be judiciously funneled in the
right direction.

  Despite being the Information Technology Officer for the
Marine Headquarters in Iraq...  I CANT GET TO EBAY!!  Too much latency
- times out.
I was almost able to get to it one night...got to the log in screen
and it timed out past that...crappy developers!  I have purchased some
great coffee stuff there...but mostly I shop for my motorcycle and
such.
Oh well...

"a double parking meter"
That would have saved me a few bucks when I was a student at DU and we had one 10 speed, an XKE and a Corvair between us. My honey was an RN and rode up to the hospital! I had the stack of books.
"...original suggested $200 price tag still on bottom."
You can get any sticker you want- what MSRP would you like? It's the original if there is no other. You could stick it anywhere on the item...
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!
