    A Wi-Fi range extender, and some nylon garage door rollers to quiet down the garage doors when they open and close.

    Outside under tarps I retrieved some slide trays of family pictures. I put them in the house to dry, they weren't directly in the rain, but were damp from being outside. They turn out better than I expected.

    To be able to see these slides I ordered a Slide Viewer from EBAY, It was delivered today. Now I am anxious to try it.

    My dad was big on 8mm home movies. They were lost in a fire.

    That's sad, I'm going to try and recover as much as I can, The problem Is have I have no idea what was tossed and what is under the tarps.

    Stainless reusable k-cups (for use with regular ground coffee). I had the old-style plastic ones but they never seemed to work well. These are relatively inexpensive so we'll see if those 10k reviews are valid.

    My little 5 cup coffee maker that was delayed for a week due to the storms finally arrived on Wednesday, and it is the perfect size for me to have my large mug, and a little refill. Because it is small, the paper filters do not work well (they crumple over), so I ordered one of the permanent filter baskets to fit the small size.
    Now, I am browsing the mushroom coffees and trying to decide whether I should spend the money to get one of them to try, or just use regular coffee and add the mushroom powders like I have been doing.
    I am looking forward to seeing our new PCP and having some lab work done so I can find out if the mushrooms are helping my kidneys or not.

    What is a lemon ginger chew, @Jacob Petersheim , is it a cookie or something else ?

    Since I have an obscene number of cookbooks, I had sworn to not buy another. Somehow one always comes along to test my resolve. :rolleyes: I ordered this one called "Hope's Table--Everyday Recipes From a Mennonite Kitchen." It has great reviews so we'll see. It's supposed to arrive today.

    Whatever you do avoid those disposable kinds. They must be made for Chinese women, or dolls, or something.

    Maybe not an online item but what will your next appliance be?
    The Renters destroyed their washing machine. So I went in search of another.
    Now, I do not want a new one with all the bells and whistles that is smart. I want a refurbished one. I can't change out a mother board but I might be able to wriggle a belt out. There are a few places that refurbish them if I can't get one on craigslist. And in this weather, no one wants to deliver and my trailer is in bed for the winter.
    I ended up having to settle for a Maytag which is not the great machine it used to be advertised as. I had wanted a Whirlpool.
    Do you guys have a brand preference on your next appliance?

    I have had LG washer and dryer for about 10 years with no issues. Also have an LG refrigerator that is a couple of years old with no issues so far. I look at features/price and decide; I don't have "brand loyalty" any longer. (I used to always buy Kenmore stuff but since Sears went belly-up that's not an option.)

    Like @Tony Nathanson I purchased soap …

    I was sent one of these in a forum swap ( crafty forum ) and it’s so nice a soft on my skin I went looking to find the soap to buy some ….pretty reasonable actually …$17.00 for 3 soaps that includes postage …and postage is very expensive in Aussie land
