    Went through my EDC pile to recommend good stuff for my mother, since she's a manager, she wants to give her people (about 100) some gifts, so I said get them a small AA flashlight (They work for a big steel factory, so a Thrunite T10S is good looking to them :p ) and a MT (Vic, or Leatherman) or a Laguiole type of knife :D. Free stuff is the best way to convert the masses :rofl: (And it's a way better gift than these cheap tablets of digital cameras that they get sometimes... IMO, electronic stuff is not a great gift, doesn't last that long)

    Used the Olight S10 Baton, with it's magnetic base to change the headlight bulb in my daughter's Honda Element, so she would have 2 vs. 1 headlights on the way home. The magnetic base was great, as it allowed me to use both hands.

    Made sure sights were "on" on G27 and tested same with new Pearce magazine extensions. Also tested 9mm Lone Wolf conversion barrel in G27, using G19 magazines with XGrip on the G19 mags, allowing the G27 (.40 caliber) to be 2 guns (9mm, as well).

    Where do you keep it? I fear for mine too much to leave it anywhere, but I'm tired of checking constantly it's still there.

    Fisher bullet pen and Field Notes book to take notes in a recertification course last night. Bottle opener on Leatherman sidekick to open a lady's soda bottle at class. Mini Tuff Light to open up a package containing lots of biology lab specimens. Smartphone for communications and for podcasts while driving.

    Noodlers Konrad FP and Field Notes to take notes off and on for 3 hours of our churches annual business meeting and election last night.

    New Ti D25A to check the trash bin at church, and load trash in the truck. Also to light the parking lot/walkway/ and door locks to let myself in, and get the lights turned on.

    The new Barkie to cut up priority mail boxes into mailer cards to tape stuff to when packaging my secret santa stuff to go out.

    Money clip to pay for a snack at the gas station, and to pay to main the package-- worked much better than the wallet i was trying to use last week!

    Watch to keep track of the time, to kill the right amount of time before church, and also to make sure I wouldn't be late.

    The pliers on my Swisstool. The plastic top of the dipstick on my wife's ageing Mk IV VW Golf broke off and I urgently needed to add oil.

    I used my Olight i3s and Nitecore MT2A to help my parents winterize the greenhouse in preparation for all the snow we're supposed to get on Tuesday. My widgy bar was used to remove the hatch for the crawlspace so I could go under and get a plugin worklight that was down there. I also used the Nitecore for a walk around the neighborhood. It was surprisingly nice and warm tonight considering we're supposed to have a major snowstorm in a couple days.

    Used my Farmer to poke a hole in my coffee cup lid at church. That's about it.

    ... It was a highly productive day. Lol

    Used the Leatherman "By the Numbers" tool (thanks Brtsmpsn!) to separate two rolls of duct tape that had spent too much time side-by-side. Used the Fisher Bullet pen to take attendance at a church youth event. Mini Tuff Light to open a package. Fenix E15 to light up a storage closet while retrieving a ladder. And then the scissors on my alox Classic to trim a few stray beard hairs...

    Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

    A little learning is a dangerous thing;
    drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:
    there shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,
    and drinking largely sobers us again.
