A Canadian-made zero gravity lawn chair for my husband. He's recuperating from a fall (with skin lacerations and subsequent infections), which brought us home 2 weeks early from a 5-week USA road trip.

After 4 different hospital visits, he needs a comfortable way to recuperate on the porch, and enjoy summer days.

(Then, when he fully mends, maybe we'll be able to get on the road again...?)

I'm hoping this will help his swollen foot.......and his spirits.

The Fermented Black Garlic arrived, and WOW, I could eat it like candy!
It's soft like roasted garlic, the taste is hard to describe - not quite like roasted garlic and definitely not like raw garlic. I could definitely become addicted to this stuff. And, it's supposed to be good for you.

a grill for the pontoon boat and some meds from petmeds..

I remember the early days of online business. I was obsessed with saltwater aquariums and had to order all the equipment online... it was a catalog type small business, but you had to call in the order because online credit cards and payment processes didn't exist yet...spent a ton of money with them.

A motion detector nightlight for my bedroom. I had been putting off getting this because all my sockets were behind furniture. This morning I rearranged a couple of furniture items, so it seemed like a good time to order the nightlight.

Chili, I took a local class (3 day) that also doubled as my driving test. If these are available, they are a great intro. Motorcycle Safety Foundation is who I think sponsored my class. Your SO might like learning in a small group on a small bike. I've not ridden again, but needed the license for a rally we did in 2012.

Sarah, In Mass we also have the "MSF", two days of classes and riding and she got her license. She took and passed the class, but still likes to read and watch. I led her on her first "long ride yesterday (60 miles). She did great.

If you want to see some excellent handling of a big bike, search for Jerry Palladino on YouTube.

Interesting "naked" oil filter. All the cars I have owned including a VW 30 years ago use an oil filter with a casing.

Most Euro car filters are drop in since the housing is at the top of the engine for ease of access. Most Euro shops pull oil from the crankcase with a vacuum pump rather than removing the drain plug. That's how I do my oil changes.

Less waste being naked. I remember some old equipment '30-'40s had naked filters. Hadn't seen new engines with one.

I had not heard of fermented garlic either. It's pricey too!

A replacement motor for my 30 year old bathroom vent. The replacement is a perfect fit and I only had to remove one screw. The replacement has a regular AC plug.

Also bought a Dell print cartridge to make up $35 for free shipping.

Tasty snack is my usage, would be good in a vinaigrette. Supposed to be good for you, as any real food is. (ingredient; Garlic)

You can cheaply make it yourself. (thrift store rice cooker) I might try as garlic is cheap, it is the time involved that makes it $$.

In the little turbo subie I use an aftermarket spin on billet aluminum filter body that takes a replaceable filter element. Fine filtration and great flow.
