  • Altair Voyager - Large beamed, please!

    I am a huge ship. Imagine having an entire book devoted toward actively avoiding you and your kind. I have always been bigger than other ships - and yes, I have endured years of being moared in the distance, never being able to enter the shallower bays, requiring tugs to guide me in - but now THIS! Mr. Trimmer, you sir, should be ashamed! Please do not be swayed by his drivel. I ask that you judge me not by the size of my cargo hatch but rather the content of my wheelhouse.

  • Leland - The PERFECT Inkjet Printer

    This printer is awesome. All ink jet printers should be like this Epson EcoTank with refillable ink tanks. Easy to fill and easy to maintain. Fast, clear, and reliable printing. I've had many different printers and this one is the best inkject printer I've ever owned.

  • Babargreen - This stuff is expensive . . . . .

    I am still using this product. I've had it about two weeks. I'm trying to use more natural products for hair and skin care. What I've noticed is that my hair is fuller as it's not "slicked down" with product that unbeknownst to me was sticking to my hair. Never realized it. My hair feels clean and soft, but a different kind of soft.When I shampoo with it now my hair sometimes "squeaks" -- now that's clean.

  • yygsgsdrassil - Simply A Massive Masterpiece...

    ...and they thought they were just doing cool, dancible electronica. Anybody who can be inspired by the likes of Wally Badarou, John Lennon, Mahler and William DeVaughn no way can be bad in my book. We here in the Crossroads near the quad are looking forward to their new product "100 Windows" out later this month. Bristol must be a jammin' joint. We know London is one. Big ups to innovator Neneh Cherry (Neneh, come back....!) who helped out on "Hymn of the Big Wheel". You will simply love these mixes of samples of songs, snatches and scratches of tasty synthesizers, keyboards and strings, electrobeats, smoothed out vocals (perfection from Nelson, Andy and Bryan), palatable raps and sound bites from God knows where. Note: There's no profanity. "Blue Lines" is a great production of ear pleasings unobtructed by the typical hype and over hype many of these musicians get. Get all of the Massive Attack CDs and enjoy their truly fresh and innovative style.

  • T. Mar - Good Product!

    I am very happy with my purchase. it's a little bit of work to apply but the company charges over $300 so I was willing to do it. This stuff works!! It is important to wear a face mask because the powder is very fine. It is guaranteed for a year after you apply it.

  • Ingrid - Makes Sense

    I really like this book. I especially like that Mr. Cruise, as the saying goes, says what he means and means what he says, without going on and on for 400+ pages, and then (the best part in my opinion) gives you examples of what he means! That is extremely helpful!!!! Anyone getting caught up in labels is missing the point. There are substitutions everywhere - but it is helpful to have the specific items to look for too. I happen to like a bread that I get from Trader Joe's, for example, and reading the nutrition label, works totally with this "program"!
