Still looking to complete your LEGO LOTR collection on the cheap? I know I am. Amazon currently has 9474 The Battle of Helm’s Deep discounted by 22%, down to $101.14. And of course, there’s no tax to most states and free shipping, so you’ll be saving even more.

It’s been a while since I’ve given an update so this is going to seem like it’s coming out of left field, but in case anyone was wondering, I am no longer unemployed. About a month and a half ago, I started working full-time for a (semi-)local hospital in SoCal helping manage their intranet. And the only reason I bring that up now is because ever since I started working full time again in an office, I appreciate more and more the time, energy, and money saved by ordering stuff online. I was telecommuting at my previous job and it was easy to just pick up and go do a Target run or whatever. Not so much anymore these days. Amazon is pretty much my go-to site to order stuff and with Amazon Prime, getting things quickly is soooo convenient.

And since I’m giving way long overdue updates I might as well give this one. My wife and I are expecting our second baby in mid-October. We’re having a boy and no his name is not going to be Luke. Time is such a commodity these days, if you don’t have kids, you have no idea. Anyways, enough about me….

Update: 9473 The Mines of Moria is discounted 23%, down to $61.91. That Uruk-Hai army set is still at MSRP. Expansion plans will have to wait…
