perhaps you are like me, you have no money and still miss buying gadgets and a new computer.
well you might want to do what i did, my first major purchase in about 6 months was a 38 piece set of rubbermaid plastic food containers, like this set but a few less pieces in mine, after all i am not donald trump.

now perhaps you think i must have lost my mind.. that box of plastic containers has been in my kitchen for 4 weeks or so now, and i still haven't used even half of the containers.  each day i find something new to store it brings me joy to go into that box and find the perfect sized container for it...

some people prefer to climb mountains, i prefer this.

I get it...it's a cry for help!  :D
I`m a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class, especially since I rule.

@Carol: nice one!!  :D

@mouser: Interesting choice... :)

Regarding stuff to buy: let me quote from the great Fight Club movie:

The things you own end up owning you.  It's only after you lose everything that you're free to do anything.

Sad as this may seem, that actually makes sense to me ...


Now for the bonfire ...

:Thmbsup:

It's not so sad when you think about it for a while... many US folks now own so much stuff that they can't store it at home anymore. So they have to rent a place somewhere just to put it in there... that's a multi-billion business already! That is sad in my opinion...  :(

Depends which country you are in ... Northern England is great ... wide open spaces, people who don't rob you ...

Northern Scotland is great too ... no one up there except for the deer

Northern Canada - need I say more?

The west isn't bad too ... Wales, the Rockies, the Andes ...

It's just South that hasn't got a lot to offer .... (unless you are in Australia, but they stand on their heads so don't count as their bood is all in the wrong places ... even noticed how red Australian's faces get?)

That comes from standing in the sun.  (That's the big bright light in the sky that "northerners" rarely experience) ;-)
