1.0 out of 5 stars Easily broken, June 12, 2012
I cut onions at least four days a week and thought the chopper would be great. The first one I bought was the Vidalia Chop Wizard. Thought it was great for two months until one of the "ears" broke off. There's a lot of stress/torque at the hinge as you push down hard enough to cut through the onion and the plastic is just too brittle.
Months later I bought the Progressive chopper thinking they made better products. How wrong could I be! The first onion I put in was large so I quartered it. The first chop shattered the ear and sent plastic tray shrapnel shooting across the kitchen. I won't be fooled again.
There's no reason to buy one of these until they make the tray and ears metal.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fact Checker's Day Off, September 12, 2011
A friend sent me this book when I was researching a music project about Wilma Burgess. The book is laughably written and there are so many factual errors I couldn't finish it. For instance, on pages 62 and 63 they spend two pages on an Elvis Concert that never happened!
The supposed concert was March 19, 1955 at "G. Rolle White Coliseum". They misspell Rollie, They misspell Little Jimmy Dickens and not only get the name of his song, "May The Bird of Paradise...," wrong, the song wouldn't be released for another ten years. They mention, correctly, that Elvis was doing a well-documented show in Houston, Texas later that night, but then say "College Station lay northeast of Houston about one hour's drive for normal people. Elvis, Scotty, and Bill could do it in thirty-five minutes after the farmer's relinquished the two-lane roads to the speed-aholics for the evening." The distance in 1955,(pre-freeway) was just over 100 miles. Wow! 100 miles in half an hour!
Worst of all, and why my friend sent me the book, is a poster advertising the March 19, 1955 show that lists Wilma Burgess as one of the seven acts. In 1955, Wilma Burgess was 15 years old and had never been near a stage or recording studio. The poster is fake, and is actually an altered/forged poster for an 11 years later, March 19, 1966, G.Rollie White show which had six of the listed artists but "Nat Stuckey" instead of Elvis. I guess Nat Stuckey posters aren't worth as much on the collector's circuit. For the record, Elvis didn't play Texas A&M until Oct. 3, 1955.
There are a few photos I'd never seen but the print quality is not very good.
All in all, a useless book.
