5.0 out of 5 stars Very Satisfied with this Oven, August 11, 2013
Took two people to safely lift but otherwise very easy to install if you know anything about 220 volt connections. I'm not sure why other people who've reviewed this seem to have problems but I think some people may assume they know how it works and don't bother to read the user manual. Replaced a 20+ year old Whirlpool electric wall oven with this one and the difference is amazing. Old one had just 2 dials (temperature and time) while this one is all touch controls with more options than I'll ever use. The rapid preheat is amazing (preheats to 400 in about 2 minutes - old oven took about 20 minutes to preheat and then burned everything). Temperature is dead-on. Love the Keep Warm feature. Haven't used the temperature probe yet but I'm betting I'll love that, too. Beats reaching into a hot oven to poke a thermometer into the meat. Best feature has got to be the ball bearing racks. Probably will never use the self-clean feature since I just clean it manually right away if anything drips or spatters. Get this oven now while it's still made in America, before Electrolux moves their manufacturing to Mexico.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Read, January 21, 2011
I just finished reading this book cover to cover. Despite its 900+ page length, the book is written for the layman and is an easy, fascinating read that holds your attention and leaves you wanting to read more every day - took me a couple of weeks to get through it, reading for 1 - 5 hours every day or so. And I'm a pretty fast reader.

If you thought the theory of evolution was cut and dried, with all those cute pictures of hairy ancestors with hominid bodies and ape-like faces and that nifty "family tree" with all the branches, then you've been swallowing what popular media has been feeding you hook, line and sinker. I was amazed to find that, behind the scenes, there is an incredible amount of desention among respected paleoarcheologists about what all these fossils and artifacts mean, how to date them, and what they say about the history of the human race. It'st unfortunate that only one of the many theories - evolution - has been pushed to the public.

The authors don't just throw facts at you. They back everything up with an extensive bibliography that points to litterally thousands of reports from scientific journals that have been either ignored or forgotten over time. I can't imagine the amount of work and time that must have gone into finding, cross-referencing, and organizing all of these documents. But the authors did it and have pulled everything together in a easy to read and understand chronology of discovery.

Again, I found it an amazing, eye-opening book. Those who don't like it must either don't like to read or hold to very conservative views that don't permit an open-minded view of new ideas. And the ideas presented in this book aren't new. Interestingly enough, even the famous Louis, Mary and Richard Leaky, along with other pre-eminate paleoarcheologists, believe that the evolutionary tree so often taught to us is a lot of complete nonsense.

Read the book, cover to cover with an open mind, and decide for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty darn good!, March 2, 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Super realistic and not a piece of cake. Even at the recruit level it's challenging. Just wish I didn't have to work so I could play it more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, well-written book., March 2, 2008
For anyone curious about Taoism or even for the person who has followed the way for many years, this is an excellent, well-written book that clearly illustrates the important philosophies of Taoism. There's nothing preachy or pretentious about The Tao of Daily Life. It's more like talking with an old friend - simply the best modern Taoist book I've read and is a more-than-worthy supplement to the original Tao Te Ching.
