I can't think of anything better than this to blow dough on. Enjoy!

Smooth move there with the new truck:) The '13 was nice then, but so much has happened technology and feature wise. All the safety and convenience updates that rolled out in the later teens plus the latest and greatest. Enjoy your new ride.

The hollow gold rope chain that I bought at the gold bazaar in Istanbul in 2007 finally broke.
I just ordered a solid rope chain instead for over $700. I figure my funds are up so why not?;D

Yeah, I'm a show off - :)

Seriously, this fish is better than what you get at the sushi bar. And no covid to worry about!

That looks great!!
I wouldn't know how to eat that with those sticks thou. You would think with that expensive of Tune cut, you could afford some silverware thou. Lol

skyking1 02-12-2021 09:29 PM

^ I would get slivers from the sticks too. The fish does look fabulous.

DH was skeptical at first, but I showed him that there was a huge slab of meat on top of each bone.

My husband’s recent Dino bones.

My husband smoked the Dino bones in his Traeger.

That’s the smoker I have and I enjoy it so much! DH is still raving about my recent homemade bacon attempt.

Two e-bikes arrived via Fedex a few days ago. It took about 3 hours to do final assembly and adjust the disk brakes. These are Ride1UP series 500 bikes. Priced at about $1200 each, they have components and build quality of much higher priced e-bikes. The company is based in LaJolla, and the bikes are built in Sparks, NV. Beginning today, there is no such thing as a headwind or hill in my riding vocabulary.

And, they come with anti-gravity settings. I am impressed.

The best I can do is BOGO at Publix.

Ralph's had them for $2.50 each. I had bought 5 of them a few days ago for $12.50, and was issued a coupon for $2.50 off my next purchase (could have been anything). I bought my 5 and used the coupon making it $12.50 - $2.50 = $10. I was issued another coupon, and without leaving the store went back and bought 5 more. I got a third coupon but couldn't repeat it a third time as my freezer had no room. I saved the third coupon for a purchase down the road.

Finally, you made me break down and place a $300 order myself ;D

Sadly, they were all out of uni - I guess it's not urchin season...
