"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February
Hi, all of you here in the forum are invited to take part in a discussion about Amazon.
Have you ever orderd anything from it? What benefits to we have? What does it mean for our envionment and how can reteailers cope with it?
Recently I watched a docu about the 'fast rising of Amazonˋ, some scientis spoke and drivers who do the delievery as well, and some others too. I can remember, a few years ago, I was in a bookstore searching for a special book, but it was out of stock and the sales assistant told me to try it by Amazon. Yes, those were the first steps of Amazon, selling books. The stocks were very cheap at that time.
