I actually found an interesting app for the iPhone that I’d use. The USPS has its own app that, among other things, allows you to know which ZIP code you’re in. This is very useful to someone who needs to know which ZIP code their bill is on before entering it on WG. The app also lets you track packages and know where the nearest Post Office is, both things that I could see using.

Yesterday, I went to a place in Florida called Sanibel Island. When I got back, I found that I had two hits related to Sanibel. One was actually hit there. The second simply refers to it in the user note. I did spend 11 bills there, but neither hit is from any of the bills that I spent there. Odd that it should take so long for one bill to make it over there and end up there on the same day that I did.

I also got a hit on a bill that was apparently intended to help Haiti. Yes, it looks like it was deposited, but it was just one bill. I’m assuming that the actual donation was much larger.

That’s all for now.
