These coils are awesome. You won't be disappointed. The fit is tight with no leaking, beautiful draw that encourages a little more restriction in the intake for a cool vape with clouds of flavorful exhale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superior grind and brew system., October 1, 2015
I am a practical coffee fanatic. In short, this system brews great coffee from beans but requires rinsing every morning. The residue of roasted beans, the oils, will turn rancid if left in the system's humid compartments. I imagine most poor ratings result when people misaligning the partsnor handling the various parts roughly. Handled properly, rinsed at the start of the day, and cleaned as directed and scheduled this is a superior single cup grind and brew system. I was in the Navy for twenty-five years. If you like coffee - you learn to brew it well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Orwell was prescient, November 8, 2007
Orwell was prescient; just ahead of himself by 20 + years... and he had it backwards. Big Brother isn't listening, not to you, not unless you have a reason to be paranoid... Otherwise Big Brother is TALKING and evidently most of America is buying it, hook, line, and sinker.

Read this un-redacted book for starters and then follow the citations to truth and enlightenment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Period film, April 19, 2007
This review is from: Two Lane Blacktop (DVD)
I'm younger than James Taylor but in 1971 my friends (T.C. Williams HS ala "Remember the Titans") assumed that the Driver and the Mechanic were maybe barely 20 - in contrast to G.T.O. G.T.O. is more than a generational foil. Warren Oats turns in what is easily the most poignant portrayal of mid-life crisis ever filmed (as it could only occur in 1969-70).

I look at this movie as a masterpiece period film. Forget about Last Picture Show, Diner, Tin Men - maybe American Graffiti: those are great period films (never liked American Graffiti). Two-Lane Blacktop a masterpiece. It is sui generis among American film classics and within its road movie niche. This movie is in the top five of my 10 best films list... (Includes: Blade Runner; The Last Detail; Kill Bill and In Harms Way.)

I think this is the quintessential portrayal of youthful disillusionment and isolation in the late 1960s, very early 1970s. By 1972 the youth culture portrayed in Two-Lane Blacktop had been overcome by events. The so-called "movement" was long over and all that remained were plastic echoes expressed in glib commercialized fashion statements.

Male youth of the era are portrayed accurately as having little to say and even less to accomplish. I would submit that the influence of Two-Lane Blacktop still pops up occasionally in films such as River's Edge, Stand By Me, even elements of Down in the Valley.

Just as that uniquely original youth period has passed so passed the America portrayed in the film's many segues. Likewise passes any opportunity to make as genuine and true a period piece as Two-Lane Blacktop. The film is too pure and simple for our "interesting times."

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannot Confirm or Deny, August 20, 2004
I can neither validate, nor deny the voracity of this monitor in good faith. I can tell you as a Mason that I use Duncan's Ritual and I highly recommend Duncan's Ritual. Moreover, when I meet someone who shows an interest in or proclivity for The Craft I always leave them with Duncan's Ritual.

I can also tell any non-Mason in good faith that Duncan's Ritual does not misrepresent Freemasonry.

The only thing that Duncan's monitor fails to do is inculcate the deeper meaning and ultimately the value of Masonry, to the individual and society. That can only come from participating in the search for "light," and through the ministration of Brotherly Love.
