Think you have a picture of what’s going on
Got this for free from work. Was destined for the trash compactor.
I was wandering around Bunnings (like Home Depot for US peeps) yesterday morning and I saw a weather station. $349......Hmmmm...what a bargain, why not, so I grabbed it and rushed off home so I could unpack it and check it out.
All looked good, so I grabbed the receipt to keep for warranty, and notoced the price!
$449! WTF, I thought I was losing my marbles, surely I couldn't get it that wrong, I checked on-line and it was $449.
That's it, I've got Old Timers, time for the nursing home.
Anyway, it was bugging me so I went back to the store this morning and BINGO!
Exactly the same one I bought, plain as day!
So I took my receipt to the service desk, and after talking (calmly) to three people, they agreed that there was an error in price labelling and I could have it for the advertised price.
An old num 5 plane, let’s see if I can rescue it. Don’t want to waste a dollar, US made looking for a brand but first de rust.
kitchen shelf pin sleeves... lol. 24 of them.
I always browse the "Clearance" section whenever I'm in Home Depot. You never know what you're going to find in there, marked down for either no apparent reason or sometimes accidentally.
Why is it retired people always get interested in the weather.
Maybe create a thread to show us how this turns out
Oh the excitement of it all
Parts for the imac, full disclosure bought months ago. But hey installation today, so it counts.
Ummm whats that thing. Never seen one before.
Looks like a CD player mate. Awfully tiny speaker though.
In fact it's not a media device at all.
It's a thing used in the Northen Hemisphere where they don't have Hills Hoists.
The lady takes the washed clothes, puts them in the magic box, goes for a cuppa, and bingo. All the clothes are dried!
No need to even hang them on the line.
Put off getting one for years but when it is raining day after day only option is a condenser dryer.
I bought a Rimowa Cabin trolleybag. I've always had issues with old hand-me-down luggage bags and have never had the confidence that my things were safe - whether I was taking weekend trips away with family/friends or going abroad for up to a week. I generally carry a MacBook, tablet, high quality wall plugs and charging cables, maybe a second watch, personal documents and of course - various clothes/toiletries. Needless to say theres a fair few quids worth of stuff in my luggage whenever I am going to be way from home for longer than a day or two.
I've had cheap trolleybags stretch and break on me, I've had zips fall apart, I've had wheels and retractable handles break. I'm not rough with my luggage but I never had a properly made suitcase from new. It was always umpteen years old.
As I've got two trips early next year within the UK (where I live) and two trips (potentially three) abroad to Europe and the Middle East - I wanted to completely remove that worry from my mind and get what is widely considered to be one of the top 3-5 options for luggage.
Rimowa became part of the LVMH group in 2016 which caused their products to immediately become "luxury products" - and they got new "luxury" prices to match. Is it a lot of money for carry-on luggage? Yes, but I also gave Omega £5,000 to tell me the roughly correct time and date.
It has some nifty features and is made of some fine materials in comparison to other luggage you can pick up from department stores so I hope it lives up to its reputation. For the moment, I eagerly await delivery and shiver at the thought of how much I paid for it...
More coffee gear.
Simple design. No need to fuss with filters.
Brought it home and made the first cup. Pretty tasty.
Wife’s birthday present
I bought a hibki 17, 21 special edition, Yamazaki 18.
By special edition, they spent an extra $50 on bottle and box and everyone is willing to pay an extra $500.
