    Well. I still have not gotten this calendar. Seems a shame seeing as my bike is on the January page. January is well on its way to being over and I don't have the calendar.

    I received no confirmation of my order but like Gator mentioned, it is possible that they did not send this to me. So I went on line using the link at the top of this thread. There is no record of my order being received. But there is a record in my credit card statement that Lulu had received my money, $34.96 CDN to cover the S&H as well, on December 21, 2015. So that order had to have been received by Lulu or I don't see how those specific funds could be transferred to Lulu.

    I sent them an inquiry setting out what has happened, more accurately what has not happened. I asked them to look into it ASAP and suggested that all things considered, they should be sending me one through overnight express.

    I will keep you appraised.

    This could be the last year I participate in this if we continue to use Lulu. I kinda remember a couple others in past years having difficulty with them as well.

    FYI, I ordered mine on 12/22 and it just showed up yesterday. I did receive an order receipt from "noreply@lulu.com" on the day of order.

    I am still waiting for you to tell me my worth. Unless you meant apprised instead. Not sure, but either way is good information.

    I have been tracking my order on FedEx, watching it cross the country, then they handed it off to the post office for delivery! How F***ing dumb, now I have to drive over and pick it up.

    One dollar Canadian. That's 70 cents USD.

    Knight. Your appraisal has gone down. Still 1 buck Canadian but only 79 cents American!

    Lulu just got back to me. Seems the Canadian side of their outfit has had some sort of printing problems yadda yadda yadda. But they are sending me a calendar from their USA location, expedited delivery.

    I will keep everyone apprised. Except Knight. I will keep appraising him until this is all done. By that time, he may be worth 2 bits. Who knows. Hey my friends. You can get two or three of you guys together and you can buy some real estate up here. Cheap. It is called Parliament Hill.

    Even at these low values, your appraisal is much higher than I get locally...

    Well. I got the calendar Thank ye Jesus. This one from my inquiry with Lulu. I have no idea what happened to the original order and they did not offer up what may have happened. So their response to the complaint was extremely quick and efficient. My calendar with my sweet baby is on the wall next to me as I type. Life is good.

    Yes. I have to say it was quite good. What happened to the original order is a mystery. It was likely something I did, or most likely did not do. But somehow, the funds went through so there is some little glitch there. Will watch that much closer next year.

    Oh. And Knight. I am feeling so much better now. Your appraisal has returned to market value. Hard work and perseverance and you may become a more valuable component.:biggrin-new:

    So. Today I got my second calendar and now have two. I don't know if I will order a new one from Lulu. I am sure Michael used to get another firm to do these calendars that was more dependable. Cafe Press did a couple of them back in the day. Same quality product.

    Randy I had really good service and quality from Shutterfly this Christmas. I made books not calendars. The prices were high but they constantly have a 40 and 50% off.

    I don't know how Michael decides who he gets to do the calendar or even if he makes the decision totally on his own. Its his site so he can do as he wishes. I just hope that his efforts helps him out enough to cover the costs of running this site. Have no idea what that may be either.

    Randy - since you missed a lot of January and you have 2 calendars, on one of them you can just keep ripping off the bottom sheet instead of flipping it up. A good year ahead....
