Thanks, Kylie...no online retailers and no one selling them within 50 miles. Hmmm...I'll have my parents check Denver, CO.

Well Steve and I are going grocery shopping now.

We are also going to buy a couple of nice steaks to cook tonight

Catch you all later this afternoon :)

It was way to hot to cook tonight. Just got back home. We went out for a salad bar & a sandwich. Good to be home relaxing.

I'm playing with my new toy - an electric stapler. I was giving myself a repetitive stress injury with all the stapling I do, so I got an electric one. Woohoo! New office toy!

Taxy, you need a dog. They're a lot more fun than a stapler. You can walk them, give them treats, and they're really happy to see you when you get home from work.

Although, I guess you can do that with your stapler. Might get some strange looks from the neighbors, though.

I would think about getting a dog if I didn't have a 16 year old cat.

Yes, I know they are really happy to see you when you get home. Bounce, bounce, bounce, "I'm so happy to see you!" "I took out the garbage. It took two minutes." I find their enthusiasm a bit overwhelming. I like dogs, but I'm really more of a cat person.

Taxy, your electric stapler sounds great, loads of fun times to be had

We have returned from the shopping and we ended up buying 6 porterhouse steaks, some from the butchers and some from the supermarkets, we are testing to see which is the better steak

Thanks, Kylie, Dawg, Addie, and PF, for the input on the robot cleaners. I had pretty much given up the idea, thinking that using it would just be another chore for a busy, full-time working couple to deal with. Now I'm back on track. Thanks again!

Your are very welcome Lizzie

They really are brilliant, it allows you to be doing other things whether it be more housework or going to work and it does such a good job too

Are you thinking of getting the Roomba?
