Are you using this vac mainly on carpet? Does it do as good of a job as a stand up vacuum you manually push and pull over the carpet?

Doc, I have 2 - a Roomba and an Eufy, set up in opposite ends of the house. They do a decent job of picking up the surface dirt, so your carpets always look clean, but they aren't powerful enough to do a deep vacuuming. Periodically you still need to run the big vac to get the sand and grit out of the fibers.

I only use it on tile and wood. I wouldn't buy it to use on carpet. It does as good a job as a stand up vac on tile and wood, and it's soooo much easier.

Thanks SS and Cooksie. SS that is exactly what I was wondering. I'm considering one as a gift for my wife. I could not imagine something so small and quiet doing as well as a dyson. Still it sure sounds handy I think my wife would like one.

If you don't have to have the latest, greatest, and quick shipping, Amazon has their 3rd generation Echo Dot on sale for half price, $18.99. Delivery is mid January :(, but I still bought one.

Thanks Cooksie. :thumb:
I saw a recipe I liked so I sprung for Steve Docey's cookbook. It's a best seller now and reviews are outstanding. He had one for leftover thanksgiving stuff all put on a pie crust ...turkey then potatoes then dressing then gravy over all that. Baked at 400 degrees for 40 mns. Looksed outstanding. Like a thanksgiving pizza. LOL Then there was one with hashbrowns that sealed the deal. I had told my wife I was thinking of getting it for her. She said thanks but no thanks. Then she saw the hash brown crust quich with ham, cheese eggs and onions. Looked good.
The Cookbook is called 'Happy In a Hurry Cookbook'. Quick easy recipes. regularly 29.95 on Amazon for 15.65. Also for sale in Walmart, Target and a few other stores that I cannot remember.

I liked just about everything I saw in there. The General Tso's cauliflower was different and looked great too. Thanks!

I haven't owned a rain coat/slicker/pancho in eons. I've always been an umbrella person. The rains seems to be pretty much over here now, but we did have some massive downpours and I had to go out and try to use an umbrella a couple of times. It's pretty tough to try to use an umbrella with the wind blowing and push a big trash can down the driveway.

Ordered this from Amazon: MCR Safety 200CL Classic PVC-Coated Raincoat, Large, Yellow, one Size
It was under $8.

I was pleasantly surprised. I thought it was going to be cheap and very light weight. It's not. I really like it. That's Max checking it out :).
