  • K. Berglund - My Second Favorite Floyd album (after "The Wall")While "Dark Side" and "Wish You Were Here" were the more popular albums, I always preferred "Animals." Very rarely will you ever hear these songs on the radio, and when I play the song "Dogs" on my car stereo, my wife looks aghast that there's a song that runs seventeen minutes long. These aren't 3 minute pop songs. These are lengthy, aggressive, deep and emotional prog-rock masterpieces built around the bookends "Pigs on the Wing (parts 1 & 2)"

    "Dogs" is my second favorite Pink Floyd song of all time (after "Comfortably Numb") and features some of the greatest guitar playing I have ever heard from David Gilmour. The lyrics are biting, with Roger focusing on the backstabbing nature of corporate greed.

    "Pigs (Three Different Ones)" attacks the rich and powerful who Roger sees as a danger to society, and particularly, Mary Whitehouse, a british campaigner for morality and decency who had once attacked Pink Floyd's music.

    "Sheep" seems to be an attack on those who mindlessly follow their leaders with blind faith.

    This album is one of Floyd's defining moments, both lyrically and musically. This is essential Pink Floyd.
  • Menthol Rum - Faster & cheaper than a visit to the doctor - with great results!I bought this elsewhere on an impulse, but thought I'd add my review here in hopes that it might be of some use to others.

    I have (had!) two moles that are on my face just at my beard line. One I often nicked while shaving and when I did, it would bleed terribly. I wanted it gone, but never did anything about it. Until recently. I do have my skin checked yearly and I know that I need to check my moles for asymmetry, border, color and diameter in between doctor visits.

    I know these two moles are safe to remove and I used Dermatend successfully on both of them.

    I followed the directions to the letter and then some. Maybe I was a little extreme, but I wanted to have the best outcome I could. I washed the area with warm water, used the emery board on the moles (one was raised and the other was flat) and then covered the area around with vaseline. The reason for the vaseline is to protect the good skin from the Dermatend, so be as accurate as you can be. I was as exact as I could have been, using a cotton swab to apply the vaseline and then the Dermatend. It stung a bit as it was supposed to and I put bandages on each of them. I changed the bandages 3 times a day and applied a bit of Neosporin each time I did. After the scab formed (about 24 hours) I cleaned the area with hydrogen peroxide and then applied the Neosporin every time. It took 5 days for one scab to fall off and 6 for the other. The moles were gone.

    Now, I still cleaned with hydrogen peroxide and used Neosporin for several days. The area was pink and I had a minor 'divot' in my skin that healed in quite well. I have to say that at times, I was worried, but all went well in the end. When the scab forms and the skin doesn't look it's best, it is easy to worry, but for me, keeping the area clean with hydrogen peroxide, covered with a bandage and using Neosporin everything turned out great. I understand that the moles could grow back, but so far so good. If they do, I'll repeat the process.

    Deramtend contains Bloodroot (Sanguinaria Canadensis), which will kill tissue. That is why it works and why you need to protect the area immediately around the treated area.

    For me, this product worked better than I had expected and it deserves its 5 star rating.

    July 2012 Edit: Over two years later, the moles are still gone, like they were never there. If I get any more, I'll repeat my process and expect the same results.
