5.0 out of 5 stars This wonderful little book gives the background on Magesterial missteps, December 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Magisterial Authority (Paperback)
This wonderful little book gives the background on Magesterial missteps, and tells what to do, and how to deport oneself, if a member of the Magesterium says or does something which seems contrary to the Faith. This applies from bishops, up to and including the Pope. A splendid guide to self-conduct, in a time when Magesterial blunders appear to proliferate. Father Ripperger is well equipped to write such a book; his knowledge of and adherence to Church dogma is unquestionable.

These knobs are very beautiful, but very, very fragile. If you decide to buy them, you will not be disappointed. They are more beautiful than the photos depict. Just don't over-tighten them, or the beautiful, oval top will pop off in your hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Didn't expect it to be this good! Thanks, again, Amazon!, March 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When I first thought about getting a digital kitchen scale, I researched them online, looking at features and price, and eventually decided to purchase from Amazon. I buy a lot through Amazon, and always get fast delivery and a fair price, but I check around, too. In any event, I narrowed the field down to three or four, and did some further research, eventually deciding to take a chance on this one form Ozeri, as it seemed to have the features I wanted. I also ordered 50 gm. and 100 gm. weights from Amazon, as a check on initial accuracy of the scale, and to calibrate it, going forward. When the scale arrived, I unpacked it, and was pleased with what I saw. For all the world, it looks a little like an iPad, with an attractive, black glass surface, and metal back. It ends there, though, as the scale four "feet", which are its weight sensors. Place the scale on a flat surface, touch it to turn it on, and it is exactly as it was advertised to be. It was perfectly calibrated, at both 50 and 100 gm. weights, and functions exactly as prescribed. I particularly like the "Tare" feature, which allows one to weigh a loaded vessel, and then the empty vessel, with the scale showing the net, or "tare", weight. One may do it in reverse, also, weighing first the empty vessel, then the loaded one, with the scale calculating the net weight of the material being weighed. Equally handy is the quick-to-change system of measurements, in U.S. and metric scale, in ounces and grams, pounds and kilograms, from 0.1 oz., to 11 pounds.

One caution to the user: the scale is very touch-sensative, so be careful, in putting it away, that you don't activate it. However, if you should happen to, it will turn itself off after one minute of non-use.

I would buy this scale again, and would not hesitate to recommend it. Accurate, attractive, easy to use. No negatives, as far as I can tell.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Electric Shaver Accessory, February 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you use an electric shaver, this product is very helpful in keeping it lubed up and ready to go. The shaver will run more smoothly, and seems to glide across the skin better. The cutters never get hot, and the whole process is more even and pleasant. I use the lubricant on each of my shavers, either after or before each use, and highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Tool If You Cut Your Own, October 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After my barber retired, I started used a Remington Shortcut, and have for two or three years. I wore one of them out, and just got a new one in June. A few weeks ago, this instrument came up on my Amazon account page, so I clicked on it, just to have a look. I liked what I saw, and after reading up on it, ordered one. I had been cutting my hair as close as the Remington Shortcut could get it, which is about 1/16th", and the Headgroomer made that easier, and got it closer, just a bare stubble. I cut it with the close trimmer for about a week, maybe two, and liked it much better than the Shortcut: easier to use, and not as likely to scrape my scalp, and faster, to boot. Then, I started looking at the "balding" attachment.

Now, I had thought about taking my hair all the way down a time or two, but never wanted to get involved with one of those razor blades some guys use, because my scalp is a little uneven, having had a number of precancerous lesions removed over the years. That leaves scar tissue, and an uneven surface, but not really noticable at a glance. But the balding device looked like an electric shaver head, only bigger, with somewhat larger holes in the foil. I've used a Panasonic electric shaver for years, which looks and works a little like a smaller, more precision version of the balding attachment.

In amy event, I decided one day to give it a go. What the heck, it would grow back out in a few days if I didn't like it. So I cut it all the way down, and it was a piece of cake. No scrapes, no razor burn, no irritation of any kind, and it was quick - my kind of deal. Fast, easy, no irritation, no real downside. And the thing is, it's addictive. Once you do it, if you like the look and feel, and I do, you get hooked up on it. You can't get it too close now. It becomes worth the small effort it takes to keep it looking that way.

The Headgroomer is a terrific instrument, however short you like to cut your hair. The head unit can be turned 180 degrees, making it easy to get the cutter positioned to cut sides and back, top, front, all around, without craning your neck, or contorting to see in the mirror. By the way, the unit comes with a hand-held mirror, about 5" in diameter, with an elastic strap on the back to slide your hand under, to make holding easy, while holding the instrument in the other hand. The unit also has a hair length "zoom" adjustment, for fine-tuning cutting height. The instrument comes with three attachments, one for precision, shorter cuts, one for longer cuts, plus the "balding" attachment. It has high-tech lithium ion batteries, and charges in an hour. A charge will last four or five days, or more, if you cut your hair every day. It'll last a week or more with less frequent use.

The insturment has a battery charge indicator in the plug-in surround. The surround flashes orange when the battery is low, and turns blue when plugged in to the charging unit. When fully charged, the surround light goes out. The charging transformer is slim and narrow, using only one outlet and not covering adjacent ones.

If you cut your hair short, this device is worth looking into. I'm sold on it. I hope this has helped you understand it a little better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, reflective, inspiring!, June 2, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For the lay retreatant, this is the best guide book ever. I have made over twenty closed, Ignatian retreats, and have never used any book during or after a retreat which even comes close to this one for guiding the retreatant into and through the retreat. If one has trouble with reflective prayer, which many do, this book will guide the silent, willing mind into it, through reflective reading. One will become immersed in the Spiritual Exercises, and find reflecting on the conferences much easier. The Examination of Conscience readily prepares one for a General Confession. Everything about the book is designed to assist the average layman to make a wonderful retreat. Written by Father James Monaghan, S.J., in the 1930's, the book is solidly traditional and dogmatic in its approach to the Faith and to the retreat process. Father Monaghan was founder of White House, the St. Louis Jesuit retreat house in South St. Louis County. He was director of White House for many years, giving hundreds of lay retreats, and was well qualified to author such a book. Unfortunately, the book is out of print, as far as I know, and examples are rare and expensive. One would do well to obtain a copy, if the traditional approach to the retreat is what one seeks. I cannot recommend the book highly enough.
