I gave up trying to use Macy’s website as I am in Thailand right now and they don’t want traffic outside of the US because they are apparently doing so much business they don’t need any websites to help them out (insert sarcasm here).

A semi-retired workaholic in Thailand is a challenge. It is too hot to keep building adobe and earthbag buildings so a new project was needed. I became interested in bed frames after purchasing a bamboo bed frame from a local supplier here and I learned there is little information about them on the Internet. So now I spend my days researching, testing, and reporting my findings to help others while having an occasional beer and istening to 60s and 70s B side rock, blues, and much more.
