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.

      You, Davy, are a pizza snob! Me too!

                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 100% and multiplied by the MSRP of the vehicle is how much the leasing company expects it to depreciate during the course of the 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.

                                I have one in my Rancho Mirage condo.  Over the years my brother has gotten everyone with their curiosity.

                                  Nothing beats a good hot shower for cleaning the "front" and "rear"
                                  At up wards of over $500.00 or more a bidet is a waste of money!

                                      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.

                                        Greymo,
                                        Finally someone found a good use for one.........an indoor sprinkler!  Smart kids.

                                                I lived in Europe too long.  You couldn't pay me enough money to have one in my house! 


                                                Can't blame you.
                                                Americans have big feet. 
                                                My size 13's do not fit.
                                                 
                                                This petite (yet, obviously American) female's barely do:
                                                   
                                                   

                                                Search Google Images for 'bidet uses'; this is about the only one I dare post.

                                                  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.

                                                    I have one in my Rancho Mirage condo.  Over the years my brother has gotten everyone with their curiosity.

                                                    He does the same thing with Horseradish, only different. 


                                                    That must burn!

                                                      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.

                                                       
                                                      I used to date a gal whose parents raised show dogs.......their bidet was the water-bowl deluxe!

                                                            I don't think so.

                                                            It is a simple fact that the bidet is a product that both Mrs. Metro and I like.
