We just got back from our nearest Costco, about 45 minutes away, and my wallet is considerably lighter. Along with all the "necessities", I am now the proud owner of a Keurig Platinum coffee maker. (Thank you DC.). It came with 60 free coffee/ tea cups, which should last us several years, along with the cup where you put whatever you want in it. I'm having fun playing with it, I was going through appliance purchase withdrawals. The price we paid actually undercut Amazon and Walmart.

That's the deal we got too. Best price around. Did you notice the price of K-Cups?

We won't have to worry about that for awhile. 60 K-cups should last us for a loooong time!

Yes. Yes, it is.

It was all I could stand, after reading the reviews. And I hadn't bought a new appliance in like, 2 months. It had to be done.

Assembled my new B&D Workmate 425 (made in China). I still have a 30 year old version of the workmate. The new one has some pluses and minuses compared to my old one. A lot of the parts on the old one, that were cast aluminum, have been replaced by plastic moldings or sheet metal stampings. The work surface on the new one has an insert which increases the work surface by 9" and the front portion of the table can be tilted to a vertical position.
Printed a dimensioned top and side view of the angle iron (1.25 x .125 aluminum and 1.5 x .125 iron) brackets required to mount my 6 quart fuel tank on my 33"-cut, walk-behind mower. Seem to have recovered from my 4 day bout with loss of appetite, blurred vision, shortness of breath, and wandering aches and pains.
To do-
... Cut, assemble and mount 6 quart fuel tank and sediment bowl with bracket.
... Clean and re-glue the end sections of our dough / pastry board.
... Construct 1" Schedule 40 PVC garden enclosure.
... Install a new garage door sill.
... Replace garage door springs and cables.
... Diagnose and repair flush-mount under cabinet kitchen sink fluorescent light fixture problem.
... Fabricate an outdoor back yard discharge conduit for our clothes washing machine.
... Wire brush and refinish our iron front porch roof support stanchions.
... Buy a new Subaru Forester for the Mrs. .
... Figure out where to invest new cash.
... Calm my wife's concerns about our local masked prowlers.

I'm totally exhausted just reading your post, Bill!

my wife buys the big boxes at bj's at about 45 cents per k-cup.

you can always use that manual k-cup thing that comes with most models and fill them yourself with whatever coffee you like. but 45 or 50 cents per cup is pretty cheap, imo.


dawg, 60 cups would last my wife about 2 weeks.
