Re: Registered to vote ? Then you can buy from Johnny Appleseed.

I have bought stuff from Johnny Appleseed and have not had to do anything like this. But it was a while ago now. Maybe info requests have changed. Ring them and find out.

Re: Mystery Gnome Found!!!!

Maybe he is just one of the stolen generation of gnomes who ended up with a raw deal instead of an interesting trip.... You know the ones that people used to steal and take travelling BEFORE the GNOME GAME .

Do GPS revievers need altering after the earthquake?

This article suggests that Japan has moved 2.4m according to GPS readings. I am wondering will this require a new set of datum for them and possibly other rim of fire nations??
