Just received a new Ingersoll Rand 1/2" drive air impact wrench. Last time I tried to use my old one it wouldn't even loosen the lug nuts on the wheel. This one should do the trick.

Nice. I carry along a used cordless Milwaukee impact wrench in my trunk just in case my car has a flat and needs stubborn lug nuts removed. Some cordless impact wrenches don't have enough torque, but oh, the Milwaukee does .

I'm a big fan of the cross-style lug wrenches to replace the totally inadequate L-style wrench most cars come with. They even make folding ones that fit in a small space. That, and a length of "cheater" pipe to give a bit more leverage, seem to do the trick (along with some grunting and swearing).

I was so intrigued by "musubi" as mentioned in the recent Spam thread, I just had to try this. Never heard of musubi before, but it sounds great.

So, if I order something from Amazon Prime and the delivery hasn't arrived with the stated time (15 minutes from now), can I invoke the "Domino's Pizza Rule"? If not delivered on time, I get it free .

Some people have way too much time on their hands.

Wifi-connected smart plug that lets you control things like lights/lamps, heaters, and other electronics via smart phone app. Will be kinda cool to turn some lights on inside the house as I'm pulling into my driveway at night. Caught it on sale yesterday at Amazon for $20.

Some books --
3 RV books for a friend and them delivered and gift-wrapped to them
3 running books, "Born to Run" among them and a couple of Ultra-Marathon training books. (That will be my big adventure for 2017)

Recently ordred Topricin and muscle pain cream that has been really working.

And some various running socks. I am obsessed with running socks.

Blade Nano CP palm-size helicopter arrived today. An R/C helicopter that fits in the palm of your hand:

Also today I ordered some extra batteries and a better charger.

I just bought my blood sugar testing supplies for my diabetes. It's amazing how expensive they are in stores compared to on line. Even if I bought it in the insurance-approved pharmacy using my health insurance, it's still a bad deal because of my deductible per monthly purchase.
