Rolling the dice on Microsoft, thinking that the outcome of the Apple/Samsung court case, combined with the upcoming releases of Windows 8 and Surface might have potential to all give Microsoft a chance to make some headway. Its share price has been stagnant for a decade plus, but the dividend has been pretty solid throughout, so figure its worth a long-term punt.

A medium pepperoni Hot-N-Ready from Little Caesar's. Couldn't resist. Those have got to be the greasiest pizzas in existence.

Do you work there or something? :P

My favourite. Luckily there is not one in town, or I'd likely be dead by now.

Oh, no. I've never worked at a Little Caesars. I just love their Hot-N-Ready pepperoni pizzas.

^ Trader Joe's makes some excellent pizzas (frozen, obviously). Their personal size Olympiad pizzas are terrific (pic1, pic2). They also have a few large ones with different toppings--all very nicely done and reasonably priced.

One of the best fresh not frozen pizzas I've ever eaten came from Aldi! It tasted almost as good as my local pizza joint. Almost!

Best frozen pizza I've eaten: Buffalo chicken style from Costco.

Picked these up at Charming Charlie yesterday:




The ring is a watch- you lift the baby turtle's shell up to read it.

I also ordered a set of mini Avengers figures, even though I already have two of them.

Four of these:


I'm not sure it was legal to sell them to me as they're clearly marked "Flensburger" and therefore must be deposit-bottles from the brewery.

ETA: What are such bottles called in English? -around here they're called something like Patent-cork bottles.

There's a few breweries that have used this bottle design. Grolsch is one of them that comes to mind that still does. I've seen it called "flip top", and "EZ cap", but it looks to me like "swing top" is more commonly used.

I highly doubt you have anything to worry about legally. Micro breweries that use a bottle deposit system have the bottle cost in the price, which is credit back towards you next purchase when you return it.

'Swing top' makes sense to me and is easy to remember! -thanks.

I didn't think I was in any trouble, but stealing bottles from breweries in other countries and then selling them for more than the deposit just seems wrong to me

And here is what I bought them for
