Thomas Lipton began travelling the world for new items to stock in this store, one such item was tea, since sales had doubled from £40 million from the late 1870s to £80 million by the mid-1880s. However, he believed the price was far too high, so in 1890, he purchased his own tea gardens in Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, and packaged and sold the first Lipton tea. Staying true to this vision, he arranged packaging and shipping at low costs and sold his tea in packets by the pound, half pound, and quarter pound, with the advertising slogan: "Direct from the tea gardens to the teapot." Lipton tea bags were an immediate success in the United States.
Okay so I'm a little giddy, like giddy like Matt Damon's Run's House performance. Both of the guns I ordered are coming in tomorrow afternoon. For those of you keeping score, Bud's Gun shop shipped my Sig SP2022 within 3 days of receiving payment; Palmetto State was wicked fucking slow, taking sixteen fucking days from the time they charged my credit card until the time they physically shipped my new VZ2008. So if you're facing an OMG-there's-a-fucking-hurricane-bearing-down-on-me-and-I-want-something-to-defend-my-home-with hurry, PSA is not the way to go. Both of these awesome deals came via Slickguns, by the way! And if you don't get the Run's House reference.

Hi Ernie, Love your site and been checking it since the old stick figure days (Hope that's enough ass kissing). Not sure if you watch True Detective with Woody Harrelson, but they worked in a Kingpin reference. I thought I had heard it before when he says "you don't mow another guy's lawn". My wife though I was insane when I started laughing so hard. But it's straight out of Kingpin.Keep up the good work, Mike
The Tycoon series of games -- that is to say Railroad Tycoon, Roller Coaster Tycoon, Transportation Tycoon, etc -- I hunted for a box that's predominantly blue sky and white clouds, but I still can't figure out exactly which Tycoon game this is.
