5.0 out of 5 stars Don't mess with Bob!, August 30, 2015
This review is from: The Equalizer (DVD)
Bob is a good guy who works at the biggest home improvement store you have ever seen. He is well mannered, intelligent, a hard worker and a good friend to everyone. Everyone wonders what Bob did before he came to work at the store but he never talks about it. Bob has a secret about his past. He has skills no one should know about but if you make him mad or hurt someone he likes you may find out what Bob's skills are, and you won't like them.....

This movie starts slowly but it gets really good. The action is continuous and violent. Denzel Washington plays Bob and he does a great job in the role. Bob is a bada** and Denzel just brings the right kind of attitude to the role and it portrays the balance of a well rounded man with the ability, if required, to back up his actions.

We liked the film and it is worth seeing. I rated it 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars A mini flashlight with a mighty beam of light!, August 29, 2015
Length:: 9:23 Mins

This is a nicely designed Nitecore miniature flashlight. It is only 4.2 inches long and weighs in at 2.96 ounces. It is extremely bright for its size when you use the included 14500 lithium ion rechargeable battery. You can use AA batteries but the light beam is not nearly as bright. The flashlight has some amazing features that I really like. It is suitable for use in your home or office, as a tactical flashlight outdoors while camping and in a self-defense mode.

This is a smart flashlight as it will even tell you the voltage charge level on the battery. When you press the tail switch button and the two side buttons simultaneously the red LED will blink. When it flashes 4 times, pauses one second, and flashes 2 times it means that the battery is fully charged at 4.2 VDC. This is a fast and easy way to see what condition the battery is in and if it needs a charge. The flashlight can use a AA battery. I don't recommend using them as they are fairly expensive and you have to properly dispose of them when they are discharged, they have a shorter overall life when compared to the 14500 battery and they are not rechargeable. You can also use a rechargeable AA battery if you desire but the best lighting performance comes from using the lithium ion 14500 battery style. Using the 14500 battery will take the place of a 500 of the AA batteries over the life span of the rechargeable 14500 battery and save you a lot of money!

The flashlight has multiple modes of operation. There are two buttons on the side of the flashlight and one is the light mode up and the other is a light mode down switch. A quick press of the tail switch power button will turn on or off the flashlight. If the flashlight is off a 1 second press of both mode buttons and the tail switch button simultaneously puts the flashlight into a voltage measuring mode. The flashlight will then enter the standby mode in three seconds and the red LED will blink once every 3 seconds. This makes the flashlight easy to find in the dark. The 14500 battery will last over 30 days in this mode. You also have direct access to the very low red LED mode of the light and the Turbo mode.

These are the various lighting modes and the brightness and running times using a fully charged 14500 lithium ion battery that has a capacity of 650 mAh:

* Turbo 920 lumens for 30 minutes. Note: After 3 minutes in the turbo mode the flashlight will lower its light output to prevent overheating and ensure the battery's runtime.
* High 500 lumens for 45 minutes
* Mid 180 lumens for 1 hour and 45 minutes
* Low 70 lumens for 5 hours
* Lowest (Very Dim) 1 lumen for 100 hours - long life for emergencies.
* Next comes a red LED mode
* Below that is a red flashing beacon (pulse) LED mode
* In addition the flashlight has a strobe mode for self-defense to blind an attacker
* SOS mode
* Pulse location mode which is a bright burst of light every 2 seconds so rescue worker could find you.
* The light is very bright when on the higher modes. Do not shine it into someone's eyes as you can damage their vision. It will also get warm.

This flashlight has excellent specifications for being used outdoors. It has a drop resistance of 1.5 meters or 4.92 feet. It is also waterproof and submersible to IPX-8 which means to a depth of 2 meters. Just make sure that you properly reinsert base cap and tighten it down properly. I show that in my video. In addition maintain your flashlight by cleaning the threads with a soft rag and applying a light coating of silicon grease to the threads every 6 months. To insure proper operation also make sure that the front of the flashlight is screwed down tightly.

The silicone grease does three important things:
1. It helps maintain the waterproof rating of the flashlight
2. It protects the threads and prevents the aluminum from galling and cold welding itself together. This could make it impossible to disassemble the flashlight should this occur.
3. This flashlight uses O-ring gaskets and the silicon grease protects the O-rings and keeps them from rolling and tearing.

The crystal lens is an ultra-clear mineral glass to provide good optics for the flashlight. The reflector is a deep well orange peel mirror surface that will throw the turbo beam up to 170 meters or 558 feet.

The flashlight weighs in at 2.96 ounces with the battery installed. The body of the flashlight is made of high quality aircraft aluminum and it is professionally black anodized to a HAIII military grade to resist corrosion. The side of the flashlight is knurled which makes it easy to hold and provide a good gripping surface for your hand. The base of the flashlight is flat so the light can stand up in the candlestick mode which is great for camping or emergencies. You can sit it on a table and light up an entire room.

What's in the box?
* The flashlight
* An instruction user manual
* Spare O-rings
* A spare tail cap switch cover.
* A wrist lanyard with a sliding tightener to secure it to your wrist. This is a nice feature to help keep you from dropping the flashlight into a lake or river for example. It also helps you to carry the flashlight with gloves on to make sure that you don't drop it.
* A ballistic nylon belt loop flashlight holster that also has a plastic ring on it that you can hook a carabiner to so you can clip It to a backpack for example.
* A plastic 14500 battery storage box that will hold two spare 14500 batteries (Extra batteries not supplied).
* The unit comes with one 14500 battery that is rated at 650mAh. It is a protected battery that is rechargeable over 500 times and it can take the place of over 500 AA batteries. The flashlight can operate on the supplied 650 mAh battery or you can use one AA battery or a rechargeable AA battery. The AA batteries are not supplied. I highly recommend that you use the 14500 battery as you will save a lot of money and get better performance out of the flashlight. I recommend that you purchase a good quality 14500 battery charger as it will pay for itself many times over.
* The flashlight also comes with a 5 year 60 month repair warranty.

I rated this flashlight as a 5 star item.

I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation. A review was not promised to the supplier in exchange for the sample but I stated that if I provided a review that it would be fair and honest.

Nitecore is well known for their high quality flashlights and torches. They are quality products and they come with very good product warranties. This unit is no exception and it has some amazing features that I really like. It is suitable for use in your home or office, as a tactical flashlight outdoors while camping and in a self-defense mode.

This is a smart flashlight as it will even tell you the voltage charge level on the battery. When you press the tail switch button and the two side buttons simultaneously the red LED will blink. When it flashes 4 times, pauses one second, and flashes 2 times it means that the battery is fully charged at 4.2 VDC. This is a fast and easy way to see what condition the battery is in and if it needs a charge. The flashlight can use CR123 batteries and it will take two of them. I don't recommend using them as they are expensive, have a shorter life when compared to the 18650 battery and they are not rechargeable. Using the 18650 batteries will take the place of a thousand of the CR123 batteries over the life span of the rechargeable 18650 battery and save you a lot of money!

The flashlight has multiple modes of operation. There are two buttons on the side of the flashlight and one is the light mode up and the other is a light mode down switch.

* High 210 lumens for 4 hours and 45 minutes
* Mid 100 lumens for 12 hours
* Low 20 lumens for 60 hours and 45 minutes
* Lowest (Very Dim) 1 lumen for 480 hours - long life for emergencies.
* Next comes a red LED mode
* Below that is a red flashing beacon (pulse) LED mode
* In addition the flashlight has a Strobe mode for self-defense to blind an attacker
* SOS mode

* In addition the flashlight has a Strobe mode for self-defense to blind an attacker
* SOS mode
* Pulse location mode which is a bright burst of light every 2 seconds so rescue worker could find you.
* The light is very bright when on the higher modes. Do not shine it into someone's eyes as you can damage their vision. It will also get warm.

This flashlight has excellent specifications for being used outdoors. It has a drop resistance of 1.5 meters or 4.92 feet. It is also waterproof and submersible to IPX-8 which means to a depth of 2 meters. Just make sure that you properly reinsert base cap and tighten it down properly. I show that in my video. In addition maintain your flashlight by cleaning the threads with a soft rag and applying a light coating of silicon grease to the threads every 6 months. To insure proper operation also make sure that the front of the flashlight is screwed down tightly.

The silicone grease does three important things:
1. It helps maintain the waterproof rating of the flashlight
2. It protects the threads and prevents the aluminum from galling and cold welding itself together. This could make it impossible to disassemble the flashlight should this occur.
3. This flashlight uses O-ring gaskets and the silicon grease protects the O-rings and keeps them from rolling and tearing.

The crystal lens is an ultra-clear mineral glass to provide good optics for the flashlight. The reflector is a deep well smooth mirror surface that will throw the turbo beam up to 180 meters or 590 feet.

The flashlight weighs in at 4.27 ounces with the battery installed. The body of the flashlight is made of high quality aircraft aluminum and it is professional black anodized to a HAIII military grade to resist corrosion. The side of the flashlight is knurled which makes it easy to hold and provide a good gripping surface for your hand. The base of the flashlight is flat so the light can stand up in the candlestick mode which is great for camping or emergencies. You can sit it on a table and light up an entire room.

What's in the box?
* The flashlight
* An instruction user manual
* Spare O-rings
* A spare tail cap switch cover.
* A wrist lanyard with a sliding tightener to secure it to your wrist. This is a nice feature to help keep you from dropping the flashlight into a lake or river for example. It also helps you to carry the flashlight with gloves on to make sure that you don't drop it.
* A ballistic nylon belt loop flashlight holster that also has a plastic ring on it that you can hook a carabiner to so you can clip It to a backpack for example.
* A plastic 18650 battery storage box that will hold two spare 18650 batteries (Batteries not supplied).
* The unit comes with one 18650 battery that is rated at 3400mAh. It is a protected battery that is rechargeable over 500 times and it can take the place of over 1000 CR123. The flashlight can operate on the supplied 3400 mAh battery or you can use two CR123 batteries that are not supplied. I highly recommend that you use the 18650 battery as you will save a lot of money and get better performance out of the flashlight. I recommend that you purchase a good quality 18650 battery charger as it will pay for itself many times over.
* The flashlight also comes with a 5 year 60 month repair warranty.

I rated this flashlight as a 5 star item.

I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation. A review was not promised to the supplier in exchange for the sample but I stated that if I provided a review that it would be fair and honest.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have flashlight if you work in explosive environments!, August 27, 2015
Length:: 9:51 Mins

This is a unique flashlight that carries an approval for use in explosive environments. I spent decades designing and teaching companies and customers how to use devices in these dangerous environments. This flashlight uses combinations of technologies to achieve an explosion proof rating. What that means in simple language is that if certain highly explosive gases gain entry into the flashlight and they are ignited then the flashlight contains the explosion and the flame paths that may exist have been tested to be adequate to cool the explosive vapors as to not allow an explosion in the surrounding working environment.

That is extremely important in hazardous locations and can save lives. The flashlight uses thick 3 mm aircraft aluminum to contain any explosion. The tail cap has 6 ½ threads for a cooling flame path, it uses a thick 10mm epoxy resin explosion suppressive optical lens and the switches are designed to be used within the hazardous environment. The unit is designed to be safely used in the land and marine petroleum exploration areas, chemical production industry, and petrochemical industries.

Do not service the flashlight yourself or ever loosen or remove the tail cap in the explosive area. Make sure that you are located in a safe area when changing the batteries. Make sure the tail cap is always tightly screwed onto the flashlight.

The agencies I am familiar with are Factory Mutual, UL, CSA, PTB and EU. This flashlight carries an approval from the Chinese agency PCEC which is a new one for me but they are highly rated and even work with PTB (German) and the Russian approval agencies.

EX d IIC T5 GB
EX = explosion protected
d = type of protection Class1 Zone1
IIC = Gas Group acetylene
T5 = temperature class 100°C
Gb = equipment protection level for gas atmospheres with high level of protection. (Not for use in mines.)

The flashlight uses a supplied 18650 battery rated at 3400mAh. It is a protected battery design. It is important to note that the battery is rechargeable over 500 times but a charger is not supplied. Chargers for 18650 batteries are available from multiple sources. The light can output up to 830 lumens for 1 hour and 45 minutes, 320 lumens for 3 hours or 4 lumens for 150 hours. The flashlight is temperature protected to prevent overheating and damage to the flashlight.

This flashlight has excellent specifications for being used outdoors. It has a drop resistance of 1.5 meters or 4.92 feet. It is also waterproof and submersible to IPX-7 which means to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes. Just make sure that you properly reinsert base cap and tighten it down properly. I show that in my video. In addition maintain your flashlight by cleaning the threads with a soft rag and applying a light coating of silicon grease to the threads every 6 months.

The flashlight weighs in at 10.55 ounces because of the thickness of the metal. It comes with a 3400 mAh battery, a belt holster, a lanyard, two spare O-rings, an instruction manual and a plastic storage box for any other batteries you may purchase. Remember that when you buy the 18650 batteries to get good ones that are protected with a built in protection circuit board. I also recommend batteries with a capacity of 3400 mAh and they last longer on a charge. I tried an unprotected battery in the flashlight and it was too short to make contact with the connections and it did not work. The protected batteries are longer as they have the button on the positive end.

This is an excellent product and I rated it at 5 stars.

I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation. A review was not promised to the supplier in exchange for the sample but I stated that if I provided a review that it would be fair and honest.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good movie about the horrors of war!, August 25, 2015
This review is from: Fury (DVD)
A spectacular war film that depicts the horrors of war. It tells the story of war in a graphic and violent manner where what happens sometimes makes no sense. A tank crew lead by an experience war veteran Sargent holds a crossroads against hundreds of experienced Nazi SS troops.....

The film mixes experienced soldiers with new recruits shoved into battle. It portrays bravery and courage and fear of the men in battle. The acting was excellent and the storyline was very good. I enjoyed the film and rated it at 4 stars. It contains graphic violence and horrific fighting. The reality will make you relate to the men fighting for their lives.

If you like war films then this one is a must see movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jazz up your meals with a little McCormick seasoning!, August 24, 2015
Our new grill does a great job of roasting meats with infrared heat. We like to baste the meat with different types of marinade and we add in this McCormick Brown Sugar Bourbon with olive oil and water and dissolve the seasoning and we baste it onto the meat. Sometimes we even use a little balsamic vinegar to the mix to help tenderize the meat. Afterwards we also sprinkle a little onto the meat as we grill it.
We also mix this into Panko bread crumbs and we flour chicken fingers, dip them into egg and then into the Panko bread crumbs and seasoning mix to spice them up a little. Everyone seems to like them a lot. You can even substitute crushed Cheese-It crackers as a crust to make a new flavor.

This is a good product and we like to experiment with different seasonings. This is one of our favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars We have used this for as long as I can remember and it helps make the meat we grill tenderer!, August 24, 2015
We use this a lot when grilling out. We moisten the surfaces of our chickens, steaks or pork and apply it to all surfaces of the meat. We poke the meat with a fork or a knife and allow it to set for about 15 or 20 minutes and then we grill or roast or cook the meat. It really helps to make the meat tenderer.

This product contains a lot of salt and as a result we never use additional salt when cooking meat and using this product. It does not contain MSG so that is good. We rate this product at 5 stars and we have used it for many years.
