    1. A new white orchid for my collection (just gorgeous)
    2. Clothes. New jeans, two T-shirts, Nike sneakers (for my morning run)
    3. Ladies' stuff. Moschino Hippy Fizz perfume (I just love it!), Aveda shampoo (found the recommendation on mystraightener)
    4. Books. The First Law by Joe Abercrombie (already finished it on an e-reader but want to have it on my shelf)
    5. Also bought a new glass table. Suits perfect for my room

    I grew tired of constantly fixing my old John Deere 828d. Plus some of the parts were impossible to find since the machine was from the 80’s.

    This new machine is a beast. 306cc engine, 28” clearing width, and up to a 55 foot throw distance. It laughs in the face of the plow wash at the end of the driveway.
    I have a very busy head. I have inside voices that I have learned to contain.

    Looks similar to mine only mine is from the mid 00s.

    Wife and I are thinking of buying some land and building and I would say good bye to my snow blower... and say hello to a plow guy as my driveway would be 300 feet long.

    I'm going to have one always docked for TV play, and one always ready for portable use.

    In other words - sorry, Jen already claimed the second one.

    Just snagged this beaut from the latest Mondo Drop. Was supposed to release during SxSW, but that got canceled like everything else did.

    24x36 (inches)

    A pretty standard poster size, so I'll be able to find a decent frame for it without breaking the bank.

    I believe the last thing I bought was some movies at Half-Price books.

    I was just going to buy Stihl everything, but then went back and researched again. The above Ryobi is extremely well reviewed, and my initial impressions are good. We’ve got a screen porch attached to the garage that was full of leaves and a bitch to sweep because of the thin layer of carpet. Cleaned it right up in just a few minutes.

    I prefer engines. Just have a separate gas can for your 50:1 oil blend, and make sure to use the high octane gas, too. I’ve gone through sooo many batteries with my work drill that I try to steer clear of rechargeable stuff around the house.

    The Stihl I contemplated getting is temperamental to start. The Ryobi was easy. Prime it, choke it, couple pulls, and you’re in business.

    I have a friend who uses a backpack blower, but he has a few acres.

    I wrap black Gorilla tape around the gas cans that are dedicated 50:1 fuel blends.





    And spend the extra 20 on Sure Can, the convenience is worth it, considering the cheaper ones can be a pain in the ass with all the flame arrest requirements these days.

    Yeh I have a smaller tank for the mixed and a large one for just pure gas. Was trying to avoid gas stuff all-together but we are probably still a ways out from the performance.

    Performance has definitely improved for battery, but battery life and replacement cost is something you need to look at too.
