But the dates above/below individual blog-posts [eg where the title and tags/categories are] are correct because they are inserted automatically by WordPress…

Dive into the B&H Mega Deal Zone to see what you want or need or what sings to you A Song of Wallet and Tears…

UPDATE: on Monday in the German time zone, it’s a very busy day at the Amazon Germany Gold Box and among the offers:

+ Sony cameras and lenses with A-series full frame E-system cameras, RX-series, and a mix of primes and zooms of the E-system including some Zeiss Zeiss Baby. There’s also a battery grip (VG-C3EM for 249 euro) and a camcorder. A total of 21 options, too many to list here individually..

While at Amazon GErmany there’s also another Amazon Basics sale with cables galore along with this AB Camera Shoulder Bag down to 15.50 euro (up to three per customer; averages 4.1 out of 5 based on 38 customer ratings at Amazon Chermany, while at the Amazon Mothership it averages 4.1 out of 5 based on 260+ ratings)…

PS: note that Amazon has been experimenting with showing the average for “ratings”, not always “reviews”. Ratings are everyone who rates a product, whether they write a review or not. In theory the review score is better but judging by the many 1-word/1-sentence reviews (or the nonsensical text of the review), mayhaps the difference between review and rating average is not by much…
