I think that blue tint may be coming from the portapotty...

I know you don't need any more knives, but this just came down today. Amazon is running a 50% off or more (from original list) on Swiss Army Knives:


Supposed to be on until March 17. The only knife I have on the list is the Farmer Silver Alox which is $19 now and I paid about $26 a year ago.

Good suggestions! That "When Technology Fails..." book looked good until you mentioned the homeopathy stuff. crazy

Gardening books are always fun, though I already have a big shelf full. Sue, have you seen 'Gardening when it counts"? Any thoughts on it if you have?

Matt, your suggestion of entertainment sent me over to see what new "Munchkin" updates are out, but we already have an entire room filled with games/fiction/amusing toys which do get pulled out often enough. I'm happy with what we have there.

However, while surfing through Amazon looking at y'alls suggestions I discovered I can order stuff from The Sportsman's Guide!

I'll never run out of things to buy ever again. Woo hoo!! grin


p.s. I think I'll spend the card on this .

In the end I took some advice ClarkTX gave me and bought Eneloop Rechangable Batteries. The thing which sets these apart from regular rechargable batteries is the Eneloops have a very low self-discharge rate. Normal rechargable batteries will self-drain in just a few weeks even without usage. The Eneloops retain over 80% of their charge even after one year in storage.

I've been running those for a couple years now. I get way better run time in my gear with them when compared to alkaline batteries and close to lithium run time. And thats after they have sat for 6 months.
