5.0 out of 5 stars Warning-Great Rod, but is NOT 6'2"--it is 5'6", July 12, 2011
This is a great rod, but Amazon has the wrong length listed. This is an SP11562L model as stated in the product details... "Item model number: SP11562Lwhich means it is a spinning rod (SP) 5'6" length (56) 2 piece (2) light action (L). Great rod and a light reel such as the Zebco Omega Z02 Spincast Reel loaded with some 6 lb. Berkley Trilene Professional Grade Fluorocarbon 110 Yd Pony Spool makes a great panfish combo.

5.0 out of 5 stars 11" Suede Case, March 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This case is a sturdy, well made and good looking model. It's perfect for my 4" barrel revolver. Be aware that the measurement (11" in this case) appears to be taken on the inside along the non-zippered side so a 6" barrel revolver would need a 13" case to fit properly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Catholic Buyers Beware! These are NOT Catholic tabs, November 18, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Even thought this tab set was listed as a Catholic tab set when I searched Amazon, they are not. They do not have tabs for the Books of Judith, Tobit, 1 & 2 Maccabees, Wisdom, Sirach and Baruch. Research of other "Majestic" brand Bible tabs indicates that none of them, despite claims to the contrary, are true Catholic tab sets.

I also agree with another reviewer who wrote "The glue-end of the tabs are very difficult to get on to the Bible pages. The name-end of the tabs are flimsey---they move back and forth too easily, catch on clothing..."

I will be returning this item.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wacky!, December 12, 2009
I found this book at a library book sale and paid 10 cents for it. I got ripped off! :)
This book is one of the silliest, wackiest things I've ever read. It would be absolutely hilarious if it wasn't for the fact that it appears that the author actually believes this stuff. Amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Catholic Study Bible Series, December 11, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is one volume of a very good, affordable 10-volume study bible series. It is accessible as well as scholarly (I know Dr. Hahn is a well educated religious writer and Protestant convert to Catholicism with Ph.D. in systematic theology). The notes are very orthodox theologically. The questions in the review sections are thoughtful. The size of these volumes are perfect for me and since the New Testament is broken into 10 volumes it is much easier to carry an individual volume for current study, though those who like to write in their study Bibles will find little room for their notes. I usually just read library versions of the theology works rather than buy them, as I have the Navarre Study Bible (another excellent, but more expensive series). But I found this series is very worthwhile and though a single volume covering the New Testament is rumored for next year, I prefer the individual books. I've recently purchased this volume as well as the Gospels of Matthew, Luke and John and the volume that covers the First, Second, and Third Letters of St. John, and the Revelation to John. I intend to use these for personal study as well as for the RCIA and adult religious continuing education classes I assist in teaching and intend to eventually purchase all 10 volumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Buy, November 15, 2009
This is an excellent portable stool. Highly durable, light weight, portable, strong, though a bit pricey, worth every penny. I've seen nothing that matches this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Avery Product, February 10, 2009
This is a great product. Many of the previous reviews refer to the older product. The current 8873 works great, is textured on both sides and with a good printer, prints on both sides. For the best results DO NOT use MSWord. As usual, Word has bugs (which are the cause of most of the formating problems other reviewers mentioned), and some of them show up when using the Avery templates (mail merge is one of them). Instead, download Avery's free software, DesignPro (unfortunately this does NOT work with Vista 64 bit, but does with other Vista versions), from Avery...

You'll find templates for all of their products, plus a custom design mode that allows you to build projects from the ground up if you can't find a template you like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Help for the baking impaired, January 11, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm a pretty darned good cook, but never could find the time to bake bread (there's nothing like a fresh baked loaf) and when I did try, I just never could seem to get it right. Then I read Jeff & Zoe's article "5 Minutes a Day for Fresh-Baked Bread" in the Dec 2008 Mother Earth News. Tried out their basic recipe from the article and after 2 false starts (my fault, not wet enough, then too wet) got it right with excellent results. Bought the book immediately and now I'm baking amazingly delicious and nutritious breads. This is a great book, especially for today's busy person. It requires no special skills in baking and comes with lots of simple modifications to the basic recipe that will have you baking great bread in, well, 5 minutes or so of actual work. You do have to wait for the dough to get ready but there's always other stuff to do in the kitchen while you're waiting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sheer Tripe, November 2, 2008
Thompson was a student of Frost who came to hate him, and his writings about the great poet reflect that hatred. For a balanced view of Frost the man, read Jay Parini's "Robert Frost: a Life". Frost had many demons, family tragedies and depressions, as many great artists have. But that does not change the fact that his poetry is as magnificent and timeless as it is both deep and simple. Van Gogh's mental illnesses do not make his paintings any less masterful. Frost was no saint, but neither was he the monster that Thompson has tried to paint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fine book by Prof. Maurer, October 31, 2008
This is another fine book about the world of crim and the language it uses. Maurer did extensive interviews and research in the 1920's and 30's, for all of his books. A professor of lingistics at Univ. of Louisville, his works are fun to read and informative. This one, along with his opus, "The Big Con" (which is the basis for the Oscar winning movie "The Sting") along with "Kentucky Moonshine" and "Whiz Mob" (about pickpockets) are excellent works.
