    This is not really a new topic but is related to the shipping. Surely it is not exhausted by these few posts.

    I am new to this forum and its culture of how things are done, so please forgive me for asking a few questions. Why did this topic get 'closed'?
    How does a topic get closed? It did not sound terribly inflammatory to me -- just a bit frustrating for some posters. But please understand -- not everyone understands all the issues that were or have been raised and points of clarification are appropriate.

    The question I have is about "peanuts"! I have no idea what they are! Is this a term used in the US because it not a familiar term in Canada.
    Or at least to me. If they are the little styrofoam pieces I think they are called "chips" here. If they are not then I would like to know the difference.

    Secondly, I did raise this point in the last post but nobody responded to it -- Has anyone ever used or even heard of the new little air pillows?

    I would be interested in expereinces or critique of the use of the pillows.

    Thanks
    Dianne

    the peanuts are the little styrofoam things that you can never get off of you because of the static
