Happy Holidays

Happy Liberation/Independence Days
Is it just me, or does patriotism diminish with age? My 13 year old came back from school in this:
demanding that flags should be on display this month. I personally think it's a bit tacky and in bad taste. But my mother obliged (as she always does with her grandkids) and we now have a huge flag hanging from the 2nd floor balcony all the way down to the 7osh, blocking the sun from my plants on the 1st floor. Patriotic acts destroying nature again.

There's a small stand selling KU cups, pens, shirts, and office sets in Shuwaikh's Students Bookshop. Not a bad idea and about time. Unfortunately they're not good quality. Here's my key chain and pens:

Thinking of switching from Aramex to DHL. Any input on that?

Happy Liberation/Independence day Hanan :) Stay away from the foamers! They can get over aggressive can't they. And I guess flag tackiness goes with the territory this time of the year.

I would switch to UshopUship instead of DHL. They are cheaper and have much better service. The packages get here quickly, and you can pay online with your credit card. I use Ushop and Aramex (am old customers of both) and Ushop is now my courier of choice.

Patriotism doesn't really diminish, but how do we express it? Besides flags, we can't really do anything besides have foam parties in the streets. Nen7ash a7san;p
