Firewood and St. Patty’s Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — urbandumpsterdiver @ 9:34 pm

My hubby was so tired from work we didn’t do any diving last night. We’ve been spending time at home more watching DVD’s, documentaries and movies. I find mainstream TV is lame, puts me to sleep and doesn’t tell all sides of the story across the planet. It’s all about spend spend spend and waste waste waste.

We’ve been cooking at home 99% of the time. One night a week during the week we have date night. It’s less expensive to eat out during the week and less crowded. I do notice that even on the weekends when we go food shopping, there is a marked decrease in traffic and customers.

So today being a techno geek I’ve finally learned how to link my laptop to our TV so I can watch documentaries I have on my hard drive on our Hi Def TV. What a delight that is.

So we left the house to dive this afternoon. Found 5 boxes of precut firewood, a manicure kit, a child’s toy, 1 children’s book with DVD, St. Patty’s day stickers, soda can holders (cozies), eye liner, 2 new frames intact. One older cookbook on crockpot cooking and one book for home repair.

We also found a HP deskjet CD to install the software for a particular laser printer. I’m saving it. Someone on down the road will buy that type of printer, maybe used with no software to load it. I’ll then have it.

On another note, if you have manuals for certains products and you no longer have the products, SAVE THE MANUALS. There is a man in the east coast who is now selling manuals. People are buying used products from garage sales and cannot find the manuals. He’s selling these manuals and making some extra money.



  1. We like your twitterfeed.
    Product manuals+instruction books are treasures.
    We enjoy your diving lists. Would it be possible to caption the fotos?
    Great work. Ta.

  3. You could see those manuals on ebay…maybe even amazon, which is cheaper.
