Never tell someone they've used everything but the kitchen sink. In my experience, they will find a way use it. "Dh said one day that I had everything but the kitchen sink, so I had to get one. $35, on an old aquarium stand, $3. Dh decided we needed a pump, $50, so the overflow from our well comes out through the pump, into the sink, and down the drain into the little stream." Sounds like Mr. Magpie has finally thrown down the towel and joined in the fun.
