charge a flat rate per shipment for shipping and handling for all orders
under 5 pounds. If the shipment exceeds 5 pounds, then we add on
additional shipping charges, based on the UPS rate, to the minimum.

heard about the "gun" thermometers--do they really work and do I
really work! The problem is--if you do not understand how they can
tell you the wrong answer in certain circumstances, you will almost
