3.0 out of 5 stars La Crosse digital thermometer, May 5, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
La Crosse makes a very nice weather station, my son has one he got through LL Bean. This one is definitely a let-down. First checked it with a lab grade mercury thermometer on several occasions. Read 3 to 3 1/2 degrees high. A little disappointed, but OK, close enough (wish products like this would leave out the decimal point). The convenience of waking up and seeing the temperature is nice. It works fine in the AM and at night. During the afternoon, it reads about ten degrees high! The sensor sits under the eave on the shady side of the house, about fifteen feet from the sensor for my son's unit. No external influence, it's not over a drier vent, can't see any reason for it. I originally wanted a dial unit to replace the one outside my window, couldn't find one with the type of bracket I wanted, too lazy to make one up in the dead of winter, thought I'd try this one. Would I buy one again? I might, knowing the pros and cons. One pro is that it's very easy to see with large, bold numbers. Morning and night temperatures are the most important to me, use them to gauge how I run my wood furnace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome sun glasses, May 5, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Tried on my first pair about 8 years ago, working for a blasting company. Totally impressed for two reasons: 1 they are comfortable, sit away from your face a bit, don't fog up as easily as the "cool" glasses all the younger guys liked, 2 they provide exceptional eye protection on sides and don't interfere with peripheral vision. I have them in clear, yellow, and the dark smoke, they're all I wear for sunglasses. Wear them shooting, driving, mowing, etc. Bought a "designer" pair before I had these, afraid to drive with them as they blocked peripheral vision.

Kelsey Grammer turns in a really good performance here. It's a very light movie, fun-filled, just the ticket to chase away the blues.

One of the funniest movies I've ever seen! My main interests in movies are action, sci-fi action, and comedy. This one tops the list.

Sports lovers will thoroughly enjoy this movie. It's low key, but a very moving story. The fact that it's based on true events brings it right to the heart. Sean Astin gives a solid performance, as does everyone. I loved him in Rudy. I gave my copy to a friend at work, and bought another one for myself.

Couldn't tell from the pictures, looked like just a big set of Legos (not a bad thing). Turned out to be a great addition to my grand daughter's Lego collection, some really unique parts. She loves to build stuff with her dad, perfect gift. Legos are great for getting the imagination going.

This review is from: Sorry Spin (Toy)
I read a couple of reviews on Amazon, had mixed feelings. Got it anyway for my grand daughter. As one review stated, it took awhile to assemble. First time we all played it, my daughter in law thought the idea was lame at first, but once we got into it, it was really fun. They introduced an entirely new way to play, it was great! Would highly recommend it.
