Desperate to find out what should be coming to ITV 2 at some low-point in your not-too-distant future?

I bet you are:

On “The Salt ‘N Pepa Show,” VH1 will follow the ladies as they attempt to reunite on and off the stage in this funny, often touching reality series. They soon discover however, that achieving this is easier said than done since most of their past issues are still unresolved. Salt is angry about being unappreciated when they were together and Pepa blames Salt for breaking up the group. Their lifestyles are also polar opposites: Salt has indeed found God and is living a quiet life in Long Island with her husband while Pepa is still the party girl and up for anything. Can they overcome their differences long enough to heal their friendship and perform again?

To my eternal shame, I have yet to tune in to find out.

But not only am I bringing you what you’d wish for in your Christmas TV schedule, it wouldn’t be a Tinbasher Christmas if I didn’t tell you what to buy for that sheet metal worker or DIY enthusiast in your life. Ladies and gentlefolk, I give you the nut bolt and screw salt and pepper shakers:

Nuts and Bolts Salt and Pepper Shakers

These Salt and Pepper shakers are definitely something different. Pick them up, turn them whatever way and shake them, and….. nothing…. Bend then shake them however, and the Salt or Pepper will be sprinkled from the gaps that will have appeared between the coils. Once you are finished the shaker will return to it’s original form.

Designed to look like a hex-head-bolt and a countersunk head bolt these innovative devices bring a new dimension to your salt and pepper.


* Innovatively designed Salt and Pepper Shakers
* ‘S’ or ‘P’ to identify contents of the shaker
* Available in Stainless Steel or Black

Aye, I know; there are some of you thinking what a great thing these are to get your husband, and the husband half thinking they’ll only get lost in your toolbox.

Me? I’m off to push it good.
