I bought 3 of these nifty "Luci" solar lanterns. They are inflatable & weigh only 4 oz. The website is www.mpowerd.com Here's a picture of my son fine dining in the light of the lantern! It's going in my suitcase for nighttime fishing in the Keys later this winter :-). They cost about $15 each. Really slick!

Although not done today, this summer I made my wife a kitchen shelf - she has been giving me earache to do so for years!!

Took an angle grinder to an Apple Power Mac G5 computer to obtain a nice piece of curved aluminium, purchased a length of particle board and brackets from a local hardware store and produced a shelf for tea/coffee/sugar canisters, etc.

I'm seriously tempted to start a Hall of Fame thread for these kinds of things - that repurposed Apple case would have to go in there!! Love it! There are hundreds of these kinds of creative solutions everybody does - like those birch rounds converted to corner shelves - aww forget it - the whole dang thread is HoF! :-)

Picked up a nifty set of silicon collapsible bowls, cups, and storage containers, priced right at $55. With space at a premium, I like the ability to have a full set of containers that easily store and clean up simply. The three large bowls are like salad servers (really big, one is a collander); the two square ones have sealing lids, and the odd shaped one is a funnel. Not really sure what I'd use that one for. Other two small ones are cups. They come with a mesh bag, and fold down to about 5 inches stacked. Perfect for salads, mixing bowls, and storing left overs.

Use funnel to pour bleach into fresh water tank? Use for motor oil? Or to pour water into batteries?

During our trip to SE Asia, we stopped by the Mekong quilt shop in Hanoi, Vietnam today and ordered hand made quilts for our twin beds in the new trailer to be built in January. We also ordered large round pillow covers in complementary colors to lean against when reading in bed.
