In fact, there’s so much cool stuff in Toast 10, even if you never burn a single disc you’re still going to want to pick it up!

    My mom would give us fabric that she claimed she was going to make a shirt or something out of. She rarely ever did. She probably still has a trunk full of old 70’s stretch fabric.

    Sadly I don’t think it would have burned…
    Year back we got belt buckles which were sculpted into our various names. And they weren’t small…

    The last thing you want is to have folks going “hey……” with that blank look of non-recognition then looking at your belt line and figuring out who you are.
