How can I give this reclusive billionaire the $300 I owe him?

Last year I ordered some items on a Canadian website and had to pay with PayPal as they would not accept a US zip code in their CC authorization info. I was charged twice for this transaction, but have subsequently been refunded three times. The monies due to the vendor are in a credit balance in my PayPal account, but the vendor believes they have been paid and refuses to acknowledge their accounts are wrong. How can I fix this?

Where to buy spark arrestor or screen for a chiminea

We have a chiminea, but we haven't used it because we don't have a screen or spark arrestor for it. I haven't found any good options locally, and only one store online, where the quality looks like something I should be able to make myself. Except I'm not sure what kind of screen to buy to keep sparks and embers in. [more inside]

Radio is a sound salvation. But sometimes, you just need the news.

I give up. I need a radio. A plain old tabletop radio that plugs into the wall. Not a tuner, not an internet appliance, but a radio. We lost power for three and a half days, and when the electricity goes out, the internet soon follows (even if the home network stays up, it goes out upstream); and cell coverage is, um, spotty and unreliable until it, too, goes out.

Noob car buying questions

I'm almost 50 and just got my driver's license. I'm considering buying a van or SUV or VW Bus so I can take road trips with my dog. Do you have any advice for someone buying their first used vehicle? Also, I'm in Canada and have considered buying a used car in the US and then driving it back (and road tripping a bit on the way), but I cannot make head-nor-tail of how hard it is to drive a car back -- what fees are involved and such. Would hate to buy a car and be told at the border that I can't import it or the costs are crazy prohibitive. Any help appreciated.

Looking for slow-warming CFL bulb

I have a bedside lamp hooked up to a timer. I had an older CFL bulb that took about 20 minutes to become fully bright.

Tree of Life poster

I'm searching for a good large Tree of Life poster that I can get custom framed for a wall or laminated for a curious child to examine up close so she can visually grasp the theory of evolution. So far I've only found A3 size and graphic-designed to be pretty not accurate. I can get a digital file printed A0 size if needed. [more inside]

Independent, non-Amazon online sources for board games?

I'm going to be buying some new board games and RPG stuff in the coming months, and would like to support an independent, pref. worker-owned shop in doing it. We have a good one here in DC, but it's on the other side of town from me and I'm rarely able to get over there - what are some good online options? Bonus points for any that are MeFite-affiliated!

Help me dress my toddler

I love shopping for my one-year-old at Tea Collection. The clothes are stylish yet practical, durable, and fairly-priced for the quality. I also really like that the designs are inspired by cultures around the world - it keeps things fresh and interesting. Where else can I find similar kids' clothes? I prefer to shop online but all suggestions are welcome!

Where to buy polyhedral dice near Slabtown, Portland, OR?

I'm DMing a game tonight, and I forgot my dice at home. I'm carless and pretty busy in Portland's Slabtown district (deepish NW). Does anybody know the closest place I could buy a set of polyhedral dice? I know I could go to Powell's, but that'd take about an hour. Ideas?
