Nordic Track exercise bike. I hope I use it!
Put in a Star Trek episode and peddle away. It's a great way to spend about 45-50 minutes of time and you get some exercise too. And - you often lose track of time while watching. I've been doing it for years in addition to my regular workout. Enjoy.

Last purchase - a Saskatoon berry pie that'll be eaten for breakfast this morning.

Trying to work my way up, I've been doing thirty minutes at a time. Reading Star Trek: Seekers #1 while I'm peddling.

Just some food. Nothing interesting.

Good work and good for you! You may not believe it yet, but it will become addictive, and at some point, if you miss your ride one day, your body will know something is amiss. Keep it up, you can do it.

Last purchase - supper at the Toronto airport.

A serious Costco run:

- Gas for my car

- milk, frozen pizza, Advil, two bottles of margaritas, and Cinnamon Toast Crunch (collectively known as a Single Guy's Care Package) for me.

Now if Costco would only start selling Redd's Apple Ale, I'd never shop anywhere else.

A front lawn, the wife was tired of our yard looking like crap so we put in a sprinkler system and bought a new Bermuda lawn to be put in over the next couple of days.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Did you do the sprinkler system yourself or have someone install it for you? All our other houses have had sprinkler systems but this one doesn't. So we're thinking about doing it.

We had someone install it, it's a 10 zone system and cost $2300 total. I think it was a good price for the size of my yard, just under 1 acre.
