Stocking Stuffer Ideas:

Did you see something that was supposed to be a car at one time and now looks like the frankenstein monster? If so take some pics of that fugly thing and post them here. This also goes for any other "rice" you may find littering the streets or shows.

Very good idea and the glowing fuse's are a really neat idea. I might have to get some of those.

Glowing fuses and colored electrical tape-what will they think of next? I have most of those tools in one form or another and they (just like Rabbits) are always multiplying! I just had a harbor frieght open about 15 min from home and I could spend hours their. Good list of the basics any Cabby owner needs Brian.
