Ideas?


Are they big and red/black? They are probably carpenter ants. Trim your tree.

Trimmed it. Need to move the lights.
Do they get into your house/wood like termites? Do I need someone to really look in the house (not this last company)

We had carpenter ants suddenly show up inside the house about a year ago. Called Terminix. They sent a guy out and we haven't had a problem since.

Yes, they can do damage like termites. Keep your trees and shrubbery trim and don't let them touch the side of the house. If any branches or leaves touch the house, the ants have a route to get inside. Also keep your weep holes around your foundation free of debris to keep bugs from nesting there.

Reacher Grabber by VIVE - Suction Cup Grip - 32" Heavy Duty Mobility Aid.

Part of my weekend routine is picking up trash along the road out here, and last weekend I got a handful of thorns for the last damn time. I couldn't find a hoe handle or anything else to drive a nail through, so I bought this thing.

Bonus: I'll have it around the house to pick up the remote after I get really old and frail.

$15 plus shipping.

I am driving nearly to damn San Angelo to cover a game this weekend. That is deer country and I want no part of it.

I've had two close calls with the things at 70 mph in the past few years, and then a buck drilled the side of my SUV in broad daylight last year.

Asked a couple of people who travel quite a bit what they knew about deer whistles, and they hadn't even heard of them. Decided to buy one for the Hoobmobile, then I read tonight that they don't work at all. Oops.

Shit I bought but probably don't need. By Hoob.

A new co-worker was telling us about an air fryer that she bought, how she could cook food for the family in no time with little or no oil. I bought one today. $70. Looking at the cooking times, I don't see that it's any quicker.

I just want something to cook fish without frying it and not having to deal with baking it. I'll check it out in the next couple of days.


Let me know how it works out. I've got a couple of coworkers that have been talking it up but I haven't pulled the trigger.

By that same token, I bought an Instant Pot pressure cooker a while back and get a heckuva lot of use out of it.


I bought an air fryer and a pressure cooker on Black Friday. Haven’t used the p-cooker yet but the a-fryer is on its third go. It is pretty cool.

Lately I have been cooking zucchini in my air fryer. Dip the slices in egg, then bread crumb mix, then 15 minutes in the fryer at 400 degrees while the rest of the meal is cooking on the stove. I really dig it.

Mrs Tit won an air fryer at work a couple weeks ago. We dig it. We're gonna make some coconut shrimps in it one night this week.

I still haven't pulled the trigger on an air fryer. I'm afraid it will just be another kitchen gadget stored on the shelf.

How's the cleanup on those things? How about use? Are they easier to use over a normal oven?

Finding a place for it to drip dry in my little kitchen can be a chore, but cleaning it is very easy.

I had issues finding the right time and temp for stuff and finally settled on 15 minutes at 400 for almost everything. Once I got around that, it became really easy to use.

On the shelf, it takes up a lot of space. Mine is large. *Unzips pants*

First thing I made was shrimp fajitas. Do you know what I thought of? A couple of weeks when Ben McAdoo memes were popular this gem about fajitas stuck with me:

Anydanghoo, I just went by a recipe I found. I was nervous too. Shrimp is kind of an expensive first foray into air frying but they came out perfect.

We had a dehumidifier once. It was a waste.

Last week my Appliance of the Week Award went to the air fryer and yes, it is a Philips. :bigtime: Kudos go out to it for its masterful roasting of brussel sprouts & cauliflower, which really put it over the top. It also has a very pleasant hum as it cooks. This week, however, has been a whole other story as the pressure cooker (Cuisinart, btw :bigtime: :bigtime:) is in the lead. That’s why we cook the meals folks. Do you wanna know how come it’s winning? Earlier this week you shoulda seen it dominate a pot of beets, cooking them in a fraction of the time it takes to boil those rascals. Even more impressive is the number it did yesterday on some bulk bin pintos. That’s right, dry pinto beans—typically a crock pot meal as they take all day to cook. Last night they were done in about an hour. They were deeelicious.
