Installation was accomplished by my husband in under 15 minutes. Have not yet used them as I am still needing to get my kayak carrying adapter, but love the way they look!
This is a strong anthology of essays that I enjoyed overall. All the essays were short enough to be read in one sitting, which is my preferred way for reading essays. There are a few trusty big name crowd-pleasers in the mix -- Malcolm Gladwell with his cogent, well-argued piece on social status and immigration; Zadie Smith's drifting, whimsical meditation on Manhattan; David Sedaris' self-deprecating tale of enslavement to Fitbit. My personal favorite goes to Solonit's "Arrival Gates," a lyrical essay penned at the Japanese shrime Fushimi Inari-taisha. I am not a stranger to Solonit's prolific writings, many of which lyrical and travel-related, but this essay struck a particular chord with me, its peaceful reverence and acceptance had a lulling, entrancing draw, creating Solonit's own trance, lost in the the presence of time. There are others, who despite their longstanding fame, are new voices to me -- Roger Angell's hugely entertaining essay "This Old Man" has one of the most enduring, memorable opening voice that I can recall. My only complaint, which is also voiced by other readers, is that this collection is heavy on the topic of aging and mortality. This perhaps reflect the corpus of work in 2015, with the aging of the boomer population, and the noteworthy works of writers like Hitchens and Didion circling the imminent passing of life. But as a celebration of the best essays of our time, I wished for a little optimism, a little more color and diversity
I always am ready for a great read from Griffin and this does not disappoint at all. The problem that I have is that when I pick a new book like this I have a hard time putting it down,and this proved to be no exception, rats! Now have to wait to see what happens next. Another cliff hanger,
I love this menthol rub. I've used it since I was young and it works every time I'm starting to feel sick in the chest.
The EVO 850 1TB SSD works great and fast. Installing, especially cloning Windows 10 is a different story.
