Funny you should say that, router and table is the only tool I'm actually competent with. 😅

Old table saw and the other power tools get no attention except occasional suspicious looks

Went for a massage treatment the other day. It was a new place. I was a bit hesitant to go in, as on the door it said "The Rapist." I was just about to leave when another client pointed out to me it really said "therapist". Whew!

It's snowing. I mean, I don't even have to be anywhere today but if I did I'd have to decide between the AWD Subaru with heated everything or the 4WD Nissan with the good tires.

Life must be hard when you're fighting with your neighbor over mooring you $500,000 boat at a communal dock.

There's a espresso machine on the ship I'm working on and now I don't like the French press we use at home ☹️

just buy a espresso m/c when you get home cuz if you don't now you will just be another year older when you do, i have a Breville Roma which cheap @ < 200 but a very good M/C IME, or the Rancillio Sylvia if you wana be more baller

People are leaving the big city ( like i i been suggesting for 10years ) so the price of housing is going crazy up here and so the price of rent follows.

Good advice here. When I moved out of Vancouver I got one of these

Now I spend as much on service every year as some people spend on a new machine....but ohhhhhhh, the coffee. 

But if you don't go that route, I second the ranchilio Silvia, it gets great reviews and will probably last years.

But if not that, get yourself the aeropress and a burr grinder that was suggested before that. Also a great cup of coffee.

I have a porlex grinder/aeropress that can make a cup of coffee as good or better than anything you can get in the city

I havent had any breakdowns on the Sylvia or the Roma or the 2 capresso grinders

The RE is so crazy people are buying houses without seeing them and my assessment went up 50K

Not much sympathy for someone who spends $160,000 on a car.

The guy wouldn't sell it because he was worried about endangering the next owner. He parked 160k rather than pass on the problem as mercedes suggested. He actually sounds decent.
