Who said Lego building sets are for kids? This Lego Technic crane set is great to build and looks fantastic on a shelf or desktop. Even, better, its motorized functions work pretty well too.
I don’t know how we survived all these years without a true fillet knife. My wife and I really like Sockeye salmon, and we have started buying frozen wild Sockeye in between fresh fish seasons, which typically only last a few months in the summer.

If you have to buy stamps, why not buy some good-looking ones? The ones my wife brought home from the post office kiosk were absolutely dreadful! These muscle car forever stamps feature the 1966 Pontiac GTO, 1967 Shelby GT-500, 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, , 1970 Chevelle SS, and 1970 Plymouth Hemi ‘Cuda. They’re priced the same as […]
