I find that as I get older, and my free time less and income more, 
that ordering "known quantities" from the catalog is more productive 
at getting the job done.  But there still is that "thrill of the 
hunt" when you are browsing through the surplus place or hamfest and 
finding that real good deal. Too bad I have a garage full of "good 
deals" that I haven't got the time to use.
