    Got a new extension cord. This is going to come in real handy

    I can't tell you how many times I've tried to use an extension cord and it's just too darn short.

    Or when the only one available is 100' long and I know need 10' of it.

    Finally got one of the new wireless extension cords. Can't wait for it to get here and give it a try.

    Be sure you are wearing your foil hat when using those.

    You could be right. Good thing Amazon is pretty good about returns.

    New Hampshire just changed our electrical services to the European standard and all the new plugs and sockets are back ordered. If you can't use those I'll take them. I'll even toss in another few pounds or shillings for shipping.

    I recently got a new cordless phone for the house that includes a spring-loaded tether. Mounted it on the wall in the kitchen. No more losing the phone!
