I ordered DD a furby from Amazon as her one I got for xmas didn't work, and it seemed every shop in Perth was sold out.

according to the tracker, it's been sitting in Ohio since the 3rd of January - 6 days!

Please tell me that these trackers somehow aren't accurate? unsure.gif

She's been waiting since xmas and has been waiting by the window for the postie everyday!

My item was supposedly on the tarmack in HK when it arrived on my doorstep.

Sometimes they don't get updated until it reaches the next destination point, so it could be in transit but the tracking may not reflect that..

I was checking a shipment of hand crafted furniture we had sent from the gallery where I used to work to NY City.  It was sitting at the docks apparently.

2 hours later I got a phonecall from the buyer who was excitedly swooning, telling me how the deliverymen had struggled up the stairs and how great it looked in her apartment!

The samsung galaxy that is currently in my hands is apparently still in Sydney.

I am waiting on a parcel from Amazon due before christmas ... the delivery company says they haven't received the package from Amazon.  Amazon says its sitting in Aust Customs somewhere - go figure!

My Strawberry Net package was apparently awaiting clearance at customs when it turned up at my front door.

No, I bought some stuff from Pumpkin Patch online, so sent from NZ. The tracking seemed to be great when it was in NZ I knew exactly were it was from place to place until the minute it arrived in Sydney, then it seemed to sit there for days, until it turned up on my doorstep, the tracking still said it was sitting at the depot in Sydney (we are in Victoria on the outskirts of Melbourne).

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
