We bought one this year also. It was more of a family gift. I have a 13 year old who has been pretty busy with it. We also will use it for Netflix. I have been on rabbit ears for 20 years.My wife and I usually buy each other bottles of liquor to add to the cabinet. They pretty much last all year because we rarely drink liquor. I'm a beer and wine guy and my wife rarely drinks anything at all. My wife bought me a ratchet set because she is tired of having to listent to the cursing every time I try to use my old one.

Santa was very good to me this year. A Cusinart 12 - cup food processor and a pair of de buyer carbon steel mineral fry pans.

I really excited about the new pans but have never used this type before. Anyone use these?

a new crock pot with insulated travel bag, a droid phone with bluetooth device, a sound machine for sleeping, a stocking full of toblerone, and the joy of seeing my family's delight at opening their gifts.

I got a nice check for $75. I set it aside for gifts and write to her telling her what I bought and how much I like them. So far, I bought 3 pairs of sweat pants in turquoise, maroon and green, plus a kangaroo hoodie in black. Each of the sweat pants matches at least two tops I already have, so my wardrobe is filling in nicely, plus I've still got another $20 left.
