My song of the day (January 8, 2014): My past Song of The Day's
I didn't have song of the day for about 11 months. Finally, I started to play my new guitars (4 of them). I hope to learn this guitar solo. It's "One Way Out" by Allman Brothers Band.

It's July already. Christmas is coming to Costco in 4-5 weeks.
There is a tower fan on the bottom of the cart.
I am looking forward to 4th of July weekend. I can use a nap.

I am not shopping at Costco as much lately. Also, I don't see much exciting "Big Ticket Items" at Costco anymore. I think, maybe, it's because I did a lot of shopping over the years.
I don't have any clothes to buy, I don't want any more electronic gadgets, I bought 4 guitars last year, I have a big screen TV, I have a nice bed... I just focus on keeping myself healthy... and... I think I'm all set. I'm just waiting to die. Haha~!!
Anyway, if I have money, I would like to spend on home improvement and save for my next car.
I hope Costco will stock some exciting stuff. But, I cannot think of anything I want to buy at this mement. So, my slow and boring Costco shopping continues. Oh, don't get me wrong, I love Costco shopping. I enjoy it a lot. I just don't have much to buy lately.

This note is for my regular visitors. Just in case you guys are wondering...
I am doing good. I'm just busy and lazy.
I haven't been to Costco lately. I have a mountain of work to do.
Maybe I'll go to Costco after work today, but I will pick up boring stuff (eggs, chicken, vitamin...). Maybe they will have something exciting at Costco. I will keep my eyes open for them.
Anyway, boring, boring... and busy at work.
Talk to you later.
PS. I started to exercise again. I am now wearing 30" waist jeans. I feel young again. I feel 39. I've been using Windows XP all this time. I finally switched to Windows 7 (pro). I am a computer guy, so the process was painless and fun.

160+ Comments and counting...
*People are not happy with Costco's new toilet papers (I still think they are the best deal). Read comments.
There has been big changes on Costco (Kirkland Signature) toilet papers.
- Old Costco toilet papers came in packages of 36 rolls. The new package contains 30 rolls.
- Old Costco toilet papers were individually wrapped. The new Costco toilet papers are packaged as 6 pack.
- New Costco toilet papers are supposed to be softer and thicker. I do believe they are slightly softer and thicker. I am beginning to wonder if they are not as strong, which can be a problem.
- Old Costco toilet papers were $17.99 for 36 rolls - this comes out to be $.50 each roll ($0.499722222) - this is a very good price.
- New Costco toilet papers are $14.99 for 30 rolls - this comes out to be $.50 each roll ($0.499666666). So, per roll price was not changed.
- New rolls of toilet papers are too large (fat) for toilet paper holder.
People are not happy about the changes. If there are better toilet papers (better deal) I would like to know, so please leave me a note.

New Costco toilet papers in 6 pack in the middle.
Older, single packages also shown.
Newer Costco toilet paper is visibly larger and darker in color.
Older Costco toilet paper is on the right. (smaller and brighter)
I wanted to shoot a demonstration video by using peanut butter as sample prop. Then I decided not to do that due to the fact that a lot of people may find it distasteful.

I try to eat good (better).
Several months ago, I stopped adding salt on my cooking altogether. I don't add salt when I eat anything. After several months of avoiding salt, if I eat salty food I can feel my tongue burning from too much sodium. But, I still miss taste of salt... I want some kind of seasoning.
I bought a bottle of "No Salt Seasoning" by Kirkland Signature. I guess I'm not the only one asking for such product.
I bought a bottle of balsamic vinaigrette so I would enjoy salad without adding fatty dressing. I try to come up with my own low-fat dressing.
All the other items I bought pretty much show I am thinking about eating better. (Oatmeal, fat free milk, fish, pumpkin flax plus granola).
Let's see how long I will keep it up.
Brie cheese is a treat. :)
