  2. I don't know how well it makes drinks, but no discussion on blenders would be complete without They use their blenders to pulverize pretty much everything. The videos are great.
  3. The Kindle does show pictures, they're obviously black & white since it's not a color device. You can also make notes on a page. As for the "where" something is, it may not be exactly what you're looking for but there is a scale at the bottom of the page so you always have a feel for "where" in the book you are. One oddity is there is no concept of page numbers, which makes sense when you realize that you can change the font size which changes pagination. If you know someone who has one, check it out.

  4. I love physical books and thought that would keep me from enjoying the Kindle, but after using my wife's for a short time I had to have one. It's perfect for travelling. We used to pack an extra suitcase full of books for our trip to Jamaica, now we save the extra baggage cost and bring our Kindle instead. It's also perfect for one handed reading since you just press a button to change the page. Give me my Kindle, a cigar and a beverage on the deck and I'm happy.

I had an hour plus wait at the baggage claim in Sydney and then the upgrade to business class that was 'revoked' 10 minutes after I was seated on the way home when they realized they gave it to the wrong person.

  8. A lot of good suggestions so far. I'll add another vote for the Por Larranaga PC and the El Principe. You might also try the Hoyo Petit Robusto.
  9. Welcome from yet another KC resident. Now if only there was still someplace you could smoke in this town so we could get together.
