Since we have a blacklist that I believe i have moved to avoid prying eyes here is a gold list.

If you find something good enough to recommend personally and you want to keep the vicious wheel of consumerism going put it here.

Diapers from Amazon.

Costco. I love Costco. Just not on the weekends.


I'm not sure if I have a love or hate relationship with all of my ASUS networking products.

I have found the Mother of all semi-portable Blue tooth speakers (at least I think so). I've heard the Klipsch-3 is the king of portables but I didn't want that. I like to cook and when I am cooking I like to jam out. And I like power to spare. Every blue tooth speaker I've encountered so far doesn't have enough from a 40 Watt Panasonic NE-1 to a "60 Watt" Auvio.

Fantasy ladies and Old men the buck stops here. It is my pleasure to present to you the Marshall Woburn!

Yes Its expensive.....like buy a mid grade receiver expensive however I am in awe of the sound and the power and I can finally say my quest for a decent bluetooth speaker is over.

I saw it at Best Buy and nearly bought it on a whim. I might treat myself...

It was a tossup between this and the Peachtree Deepblue2.....something about the Marshall just resonated with me though. Peachtree is a also $100 less.

The Luxe Bidet 320 Hot/Cold

For $60 I don't think there is a more life altering piece of equipment you can buy. I can go on an on about how much I love these things. I've now installed 3 of them and they all work fine. People can look at me strange all they want.....these are f'n awesome.

I just wish someone had told me about these 20 years ago.

Never break a fucking glass french press again. Costco.ca used to sell this thing for half the price when I bought it.

72" level. Amazing when building decks and finishing basements. Can be found on sale for under $30 for our Canadian friends.

Quicken Loans is f'n awesome. These guys don't mind if you talk trash to them and they seldom bullshit. Just an all around great experience every single time. I have my mortgages with them.

If you are in the Denver Area. Highly recommend this tree service. Removed a bunch of trashy aspens and ground out the stumps for under 1k....awesomeness!

Aiwa Exos-9 Bluetooth Speaker

Another excellent bluetooth speaker with bonus benefits like portability, a battery, and the ability to pair with another like speaker for $299.

Good luck finding one right now...

Amazon has those Exos-9 speakers in stock. I have one and I can say that I enjoy the sound more than my Woburn. Its also $200 less than the Woburn and portable/rechargable.

My only complaint is that it needs a source level adjustment.....I don't find it loud enough from my tablet and the speaker has plenty more to give at max volume.

This is my go to recommendation for a bluetooth speaker right now.

Aiwa just released an 18 hour extended life battery to go with the Exos.

https://aiwa.co/extended-battery-aiwa-exos-9/

I turned on the EQ and that took care of my source level adjustment.

I still think the Woburn is louder and sounds better but when you consider that you can get 2 of these for the same price as the Woburn (and you can pair them together)...its a no brainer.

Been buying all my beer making and kegging gear from these guys for a while now and they have been fantastic. Great selection, ships next day, ships cheap, reward point, and the rare time you try and order something out of stock it tells you before you reach checkout. Not sure if they would have anything anyone in here can use but if you know anyone who makes beer or has a kegerator send them here.

Unfortunately I can no longer recommend this for Consumer Gold. Right on queue (8 months in) it has developed blue tooth issues pairing and sometimes will not connect at all requiring it to be unplugged for a day. That's not acceptable for something in this price range.

Better off going with 2 Aiwa Exos speakers and pairing them for the same price.

Well, I guess it ain't rock-n-roll proper unless it's unreliable.

I bought a higher end Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5-Inch Tablet for $500 back in 2015......I love that thing. Still use it everyday in the gym and at home has AC wireless.

My wife has the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 (32GB, Black) same 1.9 Processor just bigger. She loves that as well.

For some reason they have shrunk their screen size on the S2 to 9.7 inches. Its $500 too. The Sony Xperia is worth checking out as well.

I've had cheap tablets before. Steer clear.

I want a Surface Pro 4, but it's really pricey.

If anyone is interested in Gas Masks.....Amazon has a sweet deal on Israeli Civilian ones for $30.

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00 ... UTF8&psc=1

Most comfy gas mask I have ever worn.

Get yours before the Wars with Korea, Russia and China start!
