Nov 14, 2003

Hello folks!

Pecan pie, mashed potatoes & roast turkey with a fine Bawls reduction sauce. Ahhh...the season is upon us. And, just like Mario to King Bowser Koopa, we shall rise and greet!

Unique Green-Red Laser Pointer

Many people have a red laser pointer, and some even niftier people have the green laser variety. But very few people have them both built into a single unit! So be sure to grab *the first* laser pointer that projects a brilliant GREEN beam from one end and a high-power RED beam from the other end. The GREEN beam is just as bright as other green pointers, range up to 2 miles in darkness, wavelength 532 nm. The green laser beam (not just the dot) is visible at night. The RED beam is the most powerful red laser allowed by the FDA, range 4000 ft in darkness. Get illuminated here:
