I shopped for groceries at Sobeys (SBY-TSX) and toiletries at Shopper's Drug Mart (SC-TSX), both of which are already in my portfolio. Does that count?

I haven't bought since July. At the time I topped up my REITs (good timing there) and bought into the 20yr TIPS auction.

We're a recalcitrant group; if you title your thread, "Hey, gals, what do you think of this," of course, the guys will jump right in. You know you have a good thread going when it veers off into several directions and someone yells, "bacon."

I resisted buying a book today. Went to a book signing, waited in line to talk to the author. In his interview he said that even though he's got three good-selling books, he couldn't make a living at writing. Said the solution is "printing on demand" where the author gets a large enough cut. I wanted to know what kind of deal he got with his Kindle sales. Not good, they're Robber Barons like the hard-cover publishers. Said to go with printing on demand or buy from him right now. Good sales guy, I still feel guilty I didn't buy it right there.

I was in Uwajimaya today and was tempted to buy some hog bung, but I resisted. It wasn't on sale.

I bought a chicken BBQ bun, not the veggie one; the lattes had a shorter wait so I spent twice as much as I would have on the drip; but, oh my, I'm still flying on that morning espresso.

I really, REALLY do not want to know.

I bought gasoline, propane, flowers, wrapping paper, some ribbon and a couple of bridge tolls today.

I bought POM-Potomac Electric Holdings for the 7% dividend. Also I had sold it last spring for $22 and bought it back for <$15.

Let's see...I bought 2 strawberry/banana/twist choc & vanilla ice cream sundaes today on a road trip in my 'Stang. I did some power shifting from zero to 80 MPH that even bugged out dh2b's eyes a bit.
I'm gonna miss driving her this winter.
As far as the market goes, DCA is still going to VWAHX (a little bit) and VHDYX (5x a little bit) on a monthly basis.

You sure this isn't some sort of duck? Either that, or the world's largest pigeon.

On the other hand, hog bung really is hog bung. THere are guys in the slaughterhouse who are known as bungers. Guess what they do?

You know I had to google that.
Would this come in handy, perhaps? 1200 per hour is not trivial.

Invested in some three-twig lighted branches at Costco as Christmas gifts - we have a set up in the livingroom and they are great - 90 little bulbs/set and it looks like pussy willow branches - uses about 11 watts and gives just the right amount of gentle light. $20/set. Actually designed to be used outdoors. Heck of a buy.

Ha,

Forget the hog bung.

Instead, try the equally overpriced geoduck.

The check engine light came on--a miracle of science for us car idiots. Getting new injectors as we speak. Whatever they are.

Common for that to be a mileage generated warning light - Did you just turn 50k or 100k or some even number? The check engine light is normally advisory. GM: we want you to open your wallet at 50k intervals - we're putting a light on the dash to encourage that.

When mine last went on, tightening the fuel cap and waiting a week didn't help. But when I took it to Autozone, they diagnosed it (with a computer) for free and told me what the problem was. Then I took it to the Toyota dealer and they told me the same thing (so I knew they weren't trying to get one over on me) and I got the EGR valve replaced. All this stuff is done by computer these days, I guess.

Yeah, in the diesel. Almost a 100,000 miles now.
