First 'The Fonts' computer gives up the ghost, then the microwave, then the kettle. Angus orders a new kettle. It's delivered within three days. The nice young lady at the mail order company suggests a number of other 'must have' household gadgets to add to the shipment. Angus says yes to all of them .
