Had to nip into town on an errand, so l thought l’d do it on my bicycle for the first time in far too long.

Passing our friendly local bike shop l remembered that my bike computer was dying, so l called in. Long story short, they sold me a £39.99 Cateye Velo Wireless+ for £20 as it was old stock!

A few miles on the legs and £20 in the bank: bonus ball!

Bought a used 27 inch monitor, costing 750 NOK, about £ 62.50, Dell Ultrasharp 2713HM.
A very expensive top model back in the old days of 2012/2013. Now it was sold for a tenth of original retail price.
It replaced a slightly older HP Compaq LA2206x, 22 inch monitor.

22 US tons of light gray gravel, with specks of black and white. Really. It was for the front yard (no grass) here in Arizona. The old gravel was 3 different kinds and colors, mostly mint green, which was awful. A lot of the old gravel disappeared over the previous 40 years - there may be a UFO connection - and we had lots of dirt showing. (BTW: how and to where does gravel go?) My neighbors think I am insane, which is exactly where I want them :)

Also, a friend mailed me 50 grams of a rare blue pigment, which I am THRILLED to recieve! I will turn it into oil paint. Right now its on my desk where I can fondly gaze upon it when typing stuff to Forteanaland. THRILLED.

I believe there is a super communicator that links via bluetooth to alexa. But this is just a cheap and cheerful novelty.

no not really and iv seen it going for 1k used and thats the 2010 Release on ebay
Well, if it's a must-have, it's a must-have, but surely if you've seen it going for twice as much used, then this comparatively paltry £500 would be a bargain?
