Packing up my daughter's 2 week old Tristar Power Pot to return..

First week, perfect..

Second week, not holding pressure as its supposed to.. Did a turkey breast and it came out only OK.. Daughter called the mfg. and was told to take it back..

Back it goes and its up to daughter what she replaces it with..

Personally, when I move into my own apartment, I will choose an Instant Pot.. Not so much that other brands aren't good but, because I have noticed that most online conversations, blogs and recipes are about Instant Pot..

It's auction week in Scottsdale. I was at the Worldwide Auctioneers auction today. I got to video a piece of history... infamous history. It is a 1939 Mercedes-Benz that was Adolf Hitler's parade car.

It didn't reach the reserve price, so it didn't sell -- yet. They will quite possibly sell it after the auction. That is not unusual.

The picture below is a video frame capture, so it is going to look kind of rough.

Tomorrow I'm going to Barrett-Jackson and RM-Sothby's.

Or, if you prefer to buy American, here is a nice, low milage Dodge you might be interested in... and it is a convertible. Perfect for weekends on Cape Cod. Oh, I hope you can drive a stick.

All my kids learned on standard. And for years they bought standard. It cost less. Now standard cost more and the automatic is the standard price. Pirate and Spike still will drive only standard.

I, unabashedly, am envious...

I would love to go to a B-J or Mecum Auction, on the first or second day, with enough money to purchase one of the affordable 30's thru 50's restored American classics..

A $100,000.00 windfall in my checking account would be nice..

First car was a stick! When I bought my VW Superbeetle, the "automatic stick" was a $129 option. The AM/FM radio was a $129 option. I didn't want to spend too much (the Superbeetle was something like $250 more than a basic Beetle but came with a sunroof!!! ), so I had to pick just one. Hmm, I could learn to drive a stick quicker than I could learn how to install the radio (and the speakers, and run the wires...). When Dad took me up to pick my car up, a guy friend of mine came along so he could drive the car home. After dinner, he took me out to the shopping center parking lot to learn. A couple spins around the parking lot...and I said "let's go visit my friend!". No problems on the 4.5 mile drive to her house...then forgot to shift into neutral before taking my foot off the clutch. Stall! Oops! Still didn't deter me from taking my new car to work in downtown Cleveland the next day - with no stalls or hiccups.

Himself and I always had at least one standard shift car between us over the next 25 years. Traded his stick for the first van when our kids were just turning 16. They were both ticked that they wouldn't be driving sticks. The each ended up learning on friends' cars.

BTW, mostly tourists and two-housers (one in city, cottage on cape) go to the Cape in the nice weather. We never go to the Cape.
