I've purchased the Walmart made in store pizza, (Not frozen) found in the Deli Dept.
Take it home and slap in on the Rock.
Very good.
Much better than Papa Murphy's and other Chain Pizza's and many Mom & Pop Pizza's.

Another truly excellent product I have recently found at WallyWorld is "Sam's Choice Thin Crust Pizza".  Truly, it is the best frozen pizza ever and is often on special for $3.50!  Pre-heat a pizza stone, throw it on, wait a short bit & enjoy!

I put more than $3.50 worth of fresh mozzarella cheese on my homemade pizzas. I can only imagine what a Sam's Choice Pizza might taste like. I suspect my taste buds are a bit more discerning.

Lexus:  reliable, comfortable, quiet, safe, & powerful.

And, due to their high resale, they are relatively inexpensive to lease, i.e., a $50,000 Lexus product leases for about the same as a $30,000 'domestic'.

I remember reading that the best way to decide on a car is to look at lease rates. I hear ads talk about "projected resale value", but they put their money where their mouth is when they set a residual value for a lease. Even if you plan to buy, rather than lease, the car with the best lease rates is a better bet on resale value. I read a devastating review on the new Chrysler 200 today. I wonder how it's lease rate will compare to a Camry??


The figure to ask for is the residual percentage.  ("Lease rates", a.k.a. the 'money factor' are akin to interest rates on a purchase loan). 
 
That % deducted from the MSRP of the vehicle is how much the leasing company expects it to depreciate during the course of the lease.  That depreciation + the interest expense on the leasing company's acquiring the vehicle are what you are paying for in a lease.

Apples & oranges. 
Peter Luger Double Porterhouse vs. a Texas Roadhouse Sirloin.
 
For me, the Sam's Choice Thin Crust "product" is a very convenient solution for those times when "I'm tired & hungry after working late, Mrs. Metro has already eaten, O'Reilly is on, and I need something quick, easy, crunchy, filling, & tasty." 
 
Is it as good as one of Mrs. Metro's home-made pies?  Hell, no! 
But, it fulfills the need described above quite well; that is why it is a product I really like.

Great bidet story to tell you!
 
The master bathroom in our house is huge and includes a bidet.  Twelve years ago, when granddaughter was 4 years old and grandson was 2, they wandered into master bathroom and discovered the bidet and decided to turn it on to see what it was.  Unfortunately, there must have been a malfunction because when they turned it on, the water shot 4 feet up in the air!  They were delighted with this and  jumped under it and got gloriously wet...........screaming in delight, until Greymo, hearing all the joyous screams and laughter, ran in to investigate!  I could not believe my eyes! 
 
For the first and last time, my son swore at his children.  He asked  "How in heck can we keep this from happening again?"  I suggested turning off the water supply.  To my knowledge it has not been turned on since.

Ahem. 
 
Permittez-moi.
 
After trying several English-French dictionaries - including Larousse, unabrigded - I was unable to discover un mot en Francaise for 'dingleberry'.  This does not surprise me. 
 
Further, the etymology of that term is 20th. Century U.S. English.  As well, this does not surprise me.

Yes, that was one of his NEVERS.  Until I started cooking roasted cauliflower, broccoli in cheese sauce, green beans with garlic and olive oil, Brussels sprouts (claims he always liked those) sautéed fresh spinach with garlic and hot pepper flakes, fresh peas, zucchini, summer squash..........etc., etc.  But he still won't have a slice of tomato or a piece of lettuce on a burger.  Yet, he will eat salad (" />) and tons of tomato salad (" />) in the summer.  Go figure.

Our family loves vegetables and we have them  (one yellow and one green) every single night.  Out of the six in our family, only one puts lettuce and tomato on our hamburgers.  That would be my daughter in law. None of the rest of us ever dress a hamburger with lettuce and tomato.

Parchment paper!
 
My latest 'app' is for bacon. 
 
Mrs. Metro brings back three lean, thick slices from the butcher (with packaged bacon so expensive these days, it's hardly more expensive and I get exactly what I like); I then lay them on parchment paper, on a baking pan, in a 400 oven.  Tong flip once after 6 minutes, wait another four to six.  Perfect. 
 
No mess, no splatter, no fuss: with lean bacon, the fat does not run over the edge of the parchment paper so clean-up is a snap.

Egyptian crayfish (!??!!)
I've had fresh crayfish in NOLA. This stuff does not compare to that, but the NOLA looking package of frozen crawfish that they are selling at WalMart is darn good. They are as big as small lobsters (there is meat in the claws), and cook up quick. They are actually pre cooked, you just heat and eat.

BILTMORE (r) frozen "Italian Mascarpone Torta".  At $8.50 for a pre sliced 8 pc cake, it is a deal for what you get. It is of "bought in" restaurant quality, and good enough to serve to your friends.

The Shark Rocket vacuum cleaner.
 
I saw the infomercial ...  yeah, yeah, yeah ... WAY too good to be true.
 
Then I saw that Sam's Club was starting to stock it and was offering a $30 discount, to boot.
 
As it would be a 'no hassle return' (if necessary) I bought one for, net, just a little over half of the infomercial price.
 
Freaking fantastic!!!.  Rather than rave in detail, I'll simply ask you just to check the infomercial; it's all true!

Years ago a buddy who owned an after-market car business (stereos, alarms, tinting, striping, detailing, etc.) turned me on to this stuff; it is, bar none, the best all-purpose cleaner I've ever encountered!  Typically, you can find it at auto parts stores.

RE: Products that I really like 2014/07/07 11:02:00
HDMI cables.
 
Check the backs of your electronics and see if they have HDMI slots.
 
If they do, go buy HDMI cables to replace your present  (outdated VGA, RCA, Co-AX, etc.) connectors.
 
A few weeks ago I replaced my old Dell/Windows XP PC with a new, 'low end', Dell/ Win 8.1.  I noticed that even this inexpensive rig ($303!) had an HDMI output.
 
A few years ago I had purchased a 23" Samsung display that never looked as good at home as it had at COSTCO.  When I was hooking up the VGA cable to the new Dell I noticed - for the first time - that it had an HDMI input.  So, a few days later I bought an HDMI for a shockingly cheap $10.
 
I replaced the hookup.  WOW !!! 
 
Half of you are laughing at me and half are scratching their heads. 
"Head scratchers", check the backs of your electronics.

Aside from an HDMI output, another little gizmo that my new el cheapo Dell/Win 8.1 PC has is a built-in wireless interface.
 
We've had wireless internet ever since the Princess acquired the first of her 'Apple Collection', an iPad2, four or so years ago; but, as the cable/internet node is in my office I got along just fine with wires. 
 
Now, however, I am (save for the HDMI to the display) wireless.  This has been a huge improvement and I'm finally enjoying the speed I pay for - (and which Apple Girl has enjoyed for years) - on my el cheapo desktop.
 
I want to thank ChrisOC for mentioning Blu-ray.  As I had to go to Sam's anyway, I checked their players online and while there I picked up this for just a little more than I paid for a carton of smokes.  I fired up the WiFi and WOW!!!  All the crap I had read about - and freaking more - is now mine!
 
Yes, I know video discs are a dying technology.  But, I have a large DVD collection and the Blu-ray gives me noticeably better definition for them.  (At least this upgrade cost only a carton of smokes + a cherry pie; the Rotel single disc CD player in my dust-covered audio system cost me $900 in 1993)!
 
The 'deal' here is to connect my still-wonderful Sony 60" to the internet for $88 instead of parting with $1,800 for their present 'SmartTV' equivalent.  So, the upgraded player function is just a bonus.
 
And here's the real payoff:  all my financial, data, and Word files are now safely stored on and easily retrievable from my old Dell/Win XP, now happily disconnected from the alarmingly and increasingly intrusive World-Wide-Web!

I love I Heart Radio.  Totally free and you don't even have to "sign up"; simply click the site and enter the call letters of any station in the U.S. to which you wish to listen at your computer.  Add WiFi headphones and you are free to roam about your premises.
 
E.g. : my primary app is for a syndicated show that is not available in Dallas.  I listen to it via WRVA in Richmond, VA or WSC in Charleston, SC.
