Is there a Canadian program similar to Illy USA's "Illy A Casa" where good quality espresso-grind coffee can be automatically delivered to my home every 4-6 weeks?

Friends are moving from London to San Francisco today. I want to send something to their hotel room for when they arrive. They're kosher. Can anyone recommend somewhere that'll deliver something (a) delicious (b) kosher (c) suitable for two jetlagged people with a baby to an address in central SF, ideally with a website? [more inside]

I just took delivery of a large TV, ordered with "white glove" service (an extra $100+ on top of the $250+ standard delivery charge) to have the deliverymen carry the set into the house and set it up wherever I want, and dispose of the packaing... [more inside]

My online store made a sale on April 24th for around $40, and shipped out the order USPS Priority Mail. Delivery confirmation (no insurance, no signature involved) indicates it was delivered on April 26th. Today, I get an e-mail from the customer asking where it was. A correspondence later, the situations seems that she never received it. [more inside]

I can't always make it to my local farmers' market, and I'd love to arrange regular weekly deliveries of organic fruits and vegetables. I'm in London (NW3). Google turns up a ton of possibilities
but I'd prefer personal recommendations. Any suggestions? If anybody has suggestions for delivery of organic meat, eggs, or dairy products, in addition to fruit and veg, I'd be interested in those, too.

Can I claim compensation for a hotel room from UPS?
We have been forced to stay an extra night (at full cost) because UPS has not delivered a very important document.

I have a campus job delivering newspapers, and must keep track of how many were left over from last week as well. The problem has two facets: one, I sometimes forget how many I just picked up less than 5 seconds after picking it up. I normally do not have a problem with this, except with names. Two, I lose the sheets where I record the numbers about one out of every two weeks. [more inside]

When I send mail internationally (say, from the US to Italy) who pays for it? I pay the USPS but at some point the mail presumably gets handed off to the Italians who have not been paid by me to deliver the mail. Does the USPS pay Italy for their end of the delivery? Is there some sort of reciprocal treaty?

I know speaking about AOL is not eCool, but ....it seems that AOL e-mails are delivered more frequently if I'm actually, actively doing something with AOL (e.g., sending e-mails, or using their web browser--which I don't do, but). Am I imagining this, and if not, is there any way to defeat what seems to be AOL's way of managing resources?

One of my dearest friends is having a little girl later this month, and as her massage therapist, I get the honor of being present for the birth. If any other MTs, doulas, midwives or experienced moms and dads have suggestions for things to have on hand, techniqes for soothing the mom-to-be or general wisdom about the blessed event, I’d sure be grateful.

I've got a friend from Chicago unexpectedly laid up at George Washington University Hospital in D.C. I'd like to get her something besides flowers, and have it delivered. Any suggestions? While I'll entertain suggestions about interesting gifts, what I'm really wondering about is the delivery aspect. Is there a Kozmo-like service still running in DC? Is there a, I don't know, bookstore that makes house calls? etc. I know I could try to use a taxi/courier service, but that seems like more trouble than it's worth to do remotely.
