Holmes HACP9B-U Oscillating 2-Speed Clip-On Fan

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak, doesn't blow much air, June 8, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this to replace a 15 year-old clip-on of the same size. For $25, I expected something better. This fan has two speeds, but the "high" setting only blows about as much air as the "low" setting on my old fan. Since the high setting on my old fan was just right for me, this new one is underpowered and seems weak by comparison. The only "advantage" this one has over my old one is that this one oscillates, but I've never found that function useful. A much better feature would be a third, even higher-speed setting so this fan would be as powerful as my old one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Never a dull moment, June 8, 2009
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This book of confessions is exciting all the way through--you may have trouble putting it down. Others have mentioned the leaps back and forth in time as both positive and negative; I weigh in on the negative side. I find them disorienting and distracting and prefer a linear progression from past to present. However they aren't enough to detract significantly from the fascination of the events laid out here. Definitely worth reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good plot, characters and pacing--an excellent book, June 8, 2009
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
When I was partway through reading The Demon's Lexicon, there were a few plot elements I thought were errors which I chalked up to it being Sarah Rees Brennan's first novel. I couldn't have been happier to be wrong! Everything became clear, all the loose ends were tied up, and earlier events took on deeper meanings as new plot twists opened up.

The characters are clearly drawn and it's easy to like them. The bad guys are depicted as humans with good qualities as well as bad, and the good guys aren't 100% good, either--just like in real life. It's a refreshing change from many fantasy stories in which the characters are cartoonishly depicted as either pure good or pure evil.

The pacing is good, as well. You won't have to read through pages and pages of useless drivel in between the good parts. The book is almost entirely good parts.

In short, this is an excellent story, masterfully told. I eagerly await Ms. Brennan's next book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not good, April 18, 2009

Unlike the reddish color in the photo, this product was a very unappetizing gray when I received it. It didn't smell stale, but it didn't smell good either. I threw it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good mask, April 18, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found this one pretty comfortable and leak-free when adjusted properly. The Velcro on the strap doesn't last very long, though--mine started coming loose after four or five months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved 'em! But they're still pretty salty., April 14, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These things are incredible-tasting, something like super-concentrated real butter flavor. I could eat these until I exploded, except for the salt. They claim to be lower salt, but they are saltier-tasting than any other snack I've ever had!! Normally, I like lots of salt--I even put salt on macaroni and cheese--but these are just overloaded with it. Even so, I have to order a case of these now and then because the aroma and flavor is so amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious!, March 27, 2009
Fiscalini Cheese's web site says about San Joaquin Gold: "At the 16 month age, this cheese won a gold medal in London, at the World Cheese Awards in 2004, and repeated with another gold medal in 2005 and a silver medal in 2006."

I believe it. This truly is a world-class cheese. I recently bought 15 different exotic cheeses for a cheese tasting party, and nearly everyone liked this one best.

1.0 out of 5 stars What this book actually is, March 27, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you like manga art, this book is actually something you'll probably enjoy. This book is more of a collection of manga artwork "inspired by" the Monkey King than a graphic retelling of the Monkey King story ("Journey to the West"), because doesn't really follow the story. Monkey has changed from a funny, mischievous demigod into a humorless, vicious, bloodthirsty demon. There's barely any dialogue at all, it's mostly just drawings of demonic fighting, innocent girls getting beheaded and other murders, a few naked breasts, etc. It looks good, if you're into that sort of thing; but if you're looking for a graphic novel based on the story Journey to the West that even tries to follow the story, this isn't it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would be better if 100% plastic, March 12, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These work very well for cleaning between teeth, especially after means when toothpicks just don't get the job done. The only problem I have with them is that the central "stem" is made of metal, which comes into contact with the teeth at times. Rubbing metal on the teeth isn't good, because it can wear away the enamel and lead to increased risk of cavities and tooth pain. I would rate these much higher if the whole thing was plastic instead of just the bristles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific!, March 12, 2009

I love fresh-ground black pepper, but this pure oil is MUCH better and fresher-tasting. I use it in an oil mister to spray it on various foods.
