Samarkand Mugs by Dunoon

The ancient city of Samarkand seems to have been a crucible of cultures and religions. An archaeological reserve in the north-east of Samarkand, known as Afrasiab, the site of the ancient city, contains numerous indications of a diverse medieval society. Excavations have revealed brilliant murals, whose fragments seem to illustrate a number of exotic scenes: a wedding procession, ambassadors bearing gifts, a diplomatic ceremony, and scenes from the royal hunt. Another shows a Chinese princess being conveyed across a river in a boat.

My pc is showing its age

There comes a time when stuff just wears out!  … and that’s about to happen to my computer equipment.  DUH!  I’ve had most of the bits and pieces I used to run my business for several years now and just about everything is showing signs of terminal decline 🙁   … pun intended, LOL.
..




The last time I bought a pc, I used Novatech.  Their service and delivery was fantastic and the prices were really good.  I’m about to send some more money their way but I’m hoping that the computer will last into the New Year because we are about to have some dusty renovations done and I don’t want to subject new equipment to builder’s dust.

I’m really happy to recommend Novatech, though, and if you chose to buy something through my link, I’ll receive a little commission to help towards the costs of the renovations.  :O

 

Are there any bargains to be had when you’re buying ink for your printer?  I feel as if I’m paying for liquid gold sometimes – so I’m going to try out these people!
