What did Santa bring you?
For some strange reason, Santa was extra nice to me this year. He left me 2 REALLY useful (and greatly wanted) items and one item that is simply cool, fun, childs play :D
In no particular order:

A new Extech IR thermometer - measures from -58 F to 1832 F, 30:1 distance to spot ratio. (this replaces the Extech that I partialy melted and was held together with electrical tape)

Fein Multimaster "Top" kit - Any tool nuts know what this tool does, I have wanted one for several years, just couldn't justify the high price - Apparantly, Santa could. :)

Last but not least, the childs play - A remote control (RC) Apache helicopter. My dogs will love trying to catch it in the back yard.

Some attachments for my Thunderbird 20 QT mixer. He got the timing a bit ahead of the game because they arrived the day before Christmas.

One thing I didn't know was that Santa uses DHL. Must be something to do with costs/schedule. I am not complaining though because that was what I really wanted.

Thank you Santa!!

I too noticed Santas latest antics, we had several parcels arrive via USPS, UPS. and FedEx. he really seams to be taking the outsourcing seriosly.

I got zip.....nothing at all but a pile of work!!!! (on the day).
HOWEVER, I emailed him (or maybe it got only to one of his helpers) and they have promised to post my present when Australia Post comes back on line, first thing next Tuesday.
So obviously, he does make mistakes but corrects them and uses many modes of delivery system.

I got cookbooks!

Mary Karlin's "Wood-Fired Cooking" "Techniques and Recipes for the Grill, Backyard Oven, Fireplace, and Campfire."


"The King Arthur Flour 200th Anniversary Cookbook"


"The King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion"

Also Santa brought a Garmin GPS for the van, which should prove useful... we recently picked up a 13 ft GRP travel trailer (used ex U-Haul, like a Scamp) and are planning a trip to Yellowstone National Park in spring, before school lets out.

Hope everyone had a joyous Holiday!

Well Wiley you must have been VERY good to get so much stuff that's all I can say!!

Neill... I have it from a reliable source (Santa's Senior Helper) that your Christmas wish will be coming true. I assume that you have been good though - as of course this is part of the rigourous evaluation process to determine your worthiness as recipient of any gifts.

Apple butter, a candle and body wash.

Oh, and a dog fight and a congested cat...

2 1/2 trip one way - and a repeat trip home...

Actually, it was a very nice Christmas. :)

The only thing I got for the oven this year was a cast iron skillet. It says it is seasoned and ready to use - I want to believe them.


The one that scores at Xmas these days is my dog. She got a butt load of cool toys this year - this mongo bone was from her brother (my son)

Re: What did Santa bring you?
Just oil down the thing and heat it - the more seasoning the better, anyway
