I have a question do you have an answer


Here I am on another cold but fine day be it a bit on the windy side, and you know what I have done today.............a load of washing that's what and no I didn't use the clothes dryer I pegged it out on the line and got frozen while doing it..............lol

Tonight we have Leo here while Jessica goes out to poker at the club and because well we have in one night a week as everyone knows. This is the second week of the school holidays and have to say it will be over before we know it and school will be back and I will be having to drive Leo to and from school again good thing I don't mind doing it............

Anyway enough about nothing I have a question for all my blog friends out there in blogland.

In September Tim and I are going to Hawaii for a holiday only going to be gone a week can't afford any longer but I was wondering what type of power cord I will need for my computer will the one I use here work in Hawaii or do I need some kind of adapter, if any of my Aussie pals have been to the states and knows the answer could you please tell me. I looked it up on line but got confused, I did find info about tipping and printed it up and showed Tim and he was shocked he didn't realise that tipping is done for everything, since we don't tip here in Australia. I also told him that in the states the price of goods is usually without tax so that has to be taken into account when buying stuff but I am not sure how much tax is, is there a flat rate or a different rate for different things, here in we the price on the shelve is the price you pay as the GST is already added.

  2. I've never been to Hawaii so I can't answer about the power cord. Favorite Young Man visited friends there. I'm sorry to tell you that he said everything is incredibly expensive. Yes, Americans tip for everything, or at least we're supposed to if we want decent service.

    Love,
    Janie

  3. I can't help you because I never go anywhere--LOL! But I do know they tip and Hawaii is very expensive--but it is supposed to be worth all the cost because it's so gorgeous there. :)

  4. I've never been to Hawaii but I've heard it is expensive there, partly due to being an island. But totally beautiful. Taxes are not calculated into the price of things and taxes vary by state. In my state they're around 7% - that's bad that I don't even know. I just pay it. Can't help you the power cord either. Oh well, I'm not much help. You'll find your answers. Have fun in Hawaii and I can't wait to hear about your trip.
