(Might complain if I was in US and had to wait 2 weeks! )

I don't know for sure, but when I mail something to the UK or France or Belgium (I run a small mail order business, so I have a lot of exprience with shipping times), on Monday, the package arrives in Europe that same week, sometimes as quicky as Wed!!

I have a feeling Canada Post and USPS don't ship regular first class "air mail" by air, I think for the 63 cents stamp to Canada and the 93 cent stamp to the US from Canada, they figure "air mail" means air the mail out before you load it on the truck.

Neduro just sent me his most awesome dvd, postmarked July 31 in Colorado, delivered Aug. 14 to me!

But to be fair, shipments to the east coast of the US are much quicker to arrive than shipments to the west coast. They must be using much slower "planes".
