Got another pack of these 'El Gordo' Chemical Guys microfiber cloths. Trust me, if you get these you will never use a regular microfiber cloth again. These are extra plush and worth every penny.

Also got a wheel woolie to clean my wheel wells for 10 bucks on amazon.

I got tired of the stainless steel look so today I had new Fisher&Paykel BLACK stainless dishdrawers and refrigerator delivered. I feel like they're way better suited for this old house... and a little different than every other house around here.

Thanks! I love the mochamaster too, and the silver SS doesn't bother me for now Maybe I'll go black with that someday too

Thumbs up

One of my several Pre Black Friday purchases. Will be a welcome addition to my Home Theater...



*edit* I forgot about the best part, the price: $90!

I have one as well, and really like it.
Important, do get the rubber blocks with the grooves for the pinch welds.

Why do you say that? I would assume you can just the supplied rubber blocks and lift on the jack points on the f80?

My Patagonia Nano Puff hoodie is my go-to everyday jacket, but i needed something warmer now that I'm traveling up to Maine and New Hampshire regularly. I picked up Patagonia's new Macro Puff hoodie that is two steps warmer in their jacket lineup. I considered something more stylish like a pea coat, but I am so drawn to the packability and technical features I went with another Patagonia jacket (this makes five). In black of course.

I donít know about the F80, but the tracks for my 7000 were to short for the lift points on my 750Li, my 650i, and the X5 to reach both. Using the pinch weld rubber blocks mitigates the issue.

Get your right combination of the blocks and lifting will be a breeze on any vehicle. These units work well for the low sitting cars. I am very happy I got it. Remember, always guarantee your safety by placing jackstands strategically. The hydraulic pressure as well as the mechanical lock would have to fail simultaneously on one track in order for the catastrophe. Jackstands eliminate any doubt.

Not exactly (bought) more like borrowed...
Lufthansa coffee cup, great on a rainy day with butter cookies

flight attendant: MR Miller can I clear off your table? we are preparing to land, ME: no thanks I'm still finishing 🤥

notes, I don't normally steal anything, often I return to a store if something was mistakenly not scanned/charged but this 4" coffee cup was more of a memory (great trip)

Wife calls me an airline whore, I have something from most trips I've taken (hundreds) favorite is Turkish airlines salt n pepper shakers (those disposable and given btw) they have little magnets on them not to move off the tray

Don't judge Me
