Three years ago this month I made my very first purchase from Amazon.com. They sent me a coupon for a $10 discount on any purchase over $50 to celebrate my Amazoniversary.

I added a few new items to my collection of personal disturbing search requests. I guess I can understand why Yahoo! or Google! would send searchers to davidgagne.net for dave gagne custom ice.
