    I just bought the Micro Touch Trimmer. I feel so ashamed.

    I am subject to their allure, especially when they are on shelves at CVS, but so far I have managed to resist their loving charms.

    I bought a "V Slicer" over twenty years ago---I finally replaced it last year. Some of the shit works.

    Did you ever go into the As Sold on TV store? You would be in awe.

    They have one of those Kiosks in the mall with all those As Sold on Tv stuff. I avoid it like the plague. I know I would buy something from it.

    A moment of silence for Billy Mays. Just as he was about to hit it big he passed. I liked that show too.

    i got some of that spray on sealing stuff (it looks like tar and they use it to put a screen door on a boat) and it worked really well for sealing around a roof vent that had a tiny leak
