Couldn't resist it (wanted a machine in the kitchen and for leisure travel).

13" MacBook Pro. It's a little honey! The shell is a single block of carved aluminum. It weighs next to nowt.

Che bella, bella machina!!

I'm sorry to hear that. Do you have charity account set up so that we can donate to get you a real computer?

My poor deluded friend. You obviously live in a different universe to me ... a horrid, Bill Gatesian monochromatic are-you-sure/please-wait pee-cee version of the real thing, to be even able to think of posting that.

God uses a Mac. You have to know this, surely. Doesn't everyone know this? :D

I love it. The recent acquisition is right behind the Mac ... Kitchen Aid Artisan food processor. This is shaping up to be the best (and by far the most expensive) December I've had for years. Just watching it all come together and giving it a nudge when needed to keep it all on track, has been a real eyeopener for me, very mind expanding and exciting in its own way.

I'm intending to do a lot of work in this place, as cooking is a major interest of mine. It's somehow managed to come out both good looking and very functional. I'm quite surprised to be truthful. It's a bit over budget, but I'm only gonna do this once, in this house at least, so I've decided to put in the extra to make sure I get it right first time.

That'll be gas, groceries, beer and wine, for quite a while. I need to let my finances regenerate. All the major work is completed, I finally got family Christmas presents sorted out and had a dinner party tonight so I'll be taking a break from spending on new stuff. I'm planning a lot of work on the rest of the house next year, so I'll start building up a fund-base.

I gotta tell ya, it's been major fun spending this much money in this short a period of time. Other than a couple of major vehicle purchases, it's not something I've done that often. I could definitely get used to it; it's quite a buzz :D

Looking good. Spending money on your house is not only a lot of fun but a great investment. I am thinking about selling my house and doing a complete restoration on another one. It was a 2 year project.

Nah you always end up selling the axles and tires to pay bills. I traded two of mine for a troy built tiller.
You just put more blocks underneath to support the area thats what I did when I built the concrete box for the stove insert.

I remember years ago a group of guys that went around buying axles, do they still do that?
