First things first, get yourself a UK iTunes Card....
Virtual hug to you, man.  This worked for me.  It was nice to get a recommendation on a site to buy the cards - there are so many, but this one seems to be really good.

I think my attempts at buying before have snarled when Apple asked for a UK address - but bypassing the payment section altogether made the difference.

Thanks,
Curt

I did get my codes, but now my problem is how do I bypass the payment section.  I tried to enter none and it asks for a shipping address and a billing address.  Furthermore it asks for a district and a postal code.  Any thoughts?  Thank you in advance for your help.

This site will generate random names and addresses anywhere in the world.  I have it set to UK addresses at the moment, but you can change that at your leisure.  The addresses are real, the names and such are not.  The "credit card" information conforms to the standards of those cards, but the numbers do not work.

Have any of you done any fussing around with Amazon's Echo Buttons? They're currently on sale for 4/$30, and I'm wondering if they have any non-Echo potential.

For those (like me), who at least think this qualifies as a game show,  I found an end-cap display at my local Target store, devoted entirely to "American Ninja Warrior."  For about $50, there was a 37-piece set of props and stuff to play this athletic competition in your own backyard.  I'm presenting two links, the first is for this set, the second is for ALL other ANJ merchandise available exclusively at Target.

I feel like I could find a use for that timer.

I recently picked up a complete set of game cards from the final edition of the Aussie $ale home game, which I believe came out in 2001. In the vein of Endless Games' laziness and corner-cutting, I couldn't believe Crown & Andrews never bothered updating the prize cards throughout their multiple editions (until Temptation came along; then they updated the cards, but none of the rules.) Here's a game from the turn of the century offering $1,000 VCRs and the same Volvo and Jaguar pictured in my 1986 stateside edition. And yes, I realize the cards aren't real prizes, they're just score markers, but the prizes are part of the fun of the show and the game. You think they'd get a refresh in 15-20 years.

They are die-cut and glossy though, not perforated, so there is that.
