    I'll be glad when eclipse is over

    Hell I'm only 42 and forgot about it until someone told me it was happening. I went outside and said "Yup looks darker than it should be." Went in and went back to work. My wife says i need to be more personable to others.....

    Congratulations on your engagement! You can find a nice balance between adulting and still having fun. Enjoy your new apartment for the time you have it all to yourself. Even though I love my SO to pieces, there are times when I miss having my own place.

    Ok, I wasn't going to share this but it's too funny not to! This happened a few years ago. The squirrels were causing so much damage I had taken all I could take so I went and bought a couple of live traps. My theory was that I would relocate them to an area that has tons of trees and we would be good. Every day for about 2 weeks I would catch at least one and put it in the back of my truck, drive over to the park and set it loose. After the tally reached in the low 30s a friend said they were probably just coming back. The next one I caught I spray painted the tip of his tail white, relocated him, done deal. The next evening when I got home from work I noticed another squirrel in a trap. Sure enough, he had a white tipped tail!

    I have only been 4 days no smoking. But, you have to start somewhere. I'm 58. BUT, I have my 78 year old mom now just starting to get used to vaping on my ipic mini. She likes the juice I made, so here's hoping. Shes been smoking since she was 15!

    UPDATE- GOOD TIMES!!! So I revisited the build- cut my wicks just under top of tank level- shorter length probably wick easier to coil- more cotton thru the actual coil and less in channels. Also put an extra loop on my coils as it could easy handle it space wise and changed juice. Not sure what it was- probably mixture of juice (seemed to have no flavour on the dripper too but was tasty as hell few days ago) and cotton clogging up channels but good times ahead!

    Defending vaping over smoking

    Yup, folks who do not vape have no interest and have only seen the shock headlines from the coke-a-cola salesmen. Seems like all of the media today use the tactics of the old Enquirer. "Man with three heads found in space ship on Iowa farm!" Something you just have to get used to. Congratulations on your 113 days!!!! One old fart gave me the "Thems bad fer ya!" line. I told him, "I know! To late now. First week of vaping my balls fell off". He went away.

    All of the members on the forum could throw recommendations at you, but the only one who can tell you what you like is you. Not that I'm trying to give you a hard time or anything but flavor is so subjective. What one person thinks is perfect, it will taste like dirty socks to the next person. It will all depend on what tastes good to you. One eliquid vendor I liked a lot when I first started out is EC Blends. They have little 5 ml samples for under three dollars (usually something like $1.99 or so). You can customize the juices as much as you like. My all day vape for several years now is an almond joy flavor. I would never have guessed I'd like it this much. Ever. You might surprise yourself with what you find tasty. If you want more throat hit, you'll want a little more PG in your eliquid. This is the flavor carrier, thins the liquid and gives better throat hit. If more vapor, smoother throat hit, a little sweeter, is your thing, then go a little more on the VG. For the set up you have I would recommend going with a 50 PG/50 VG to start. You don't want to go with anything thinner with that tank. Also, at the beginning, go up a little on the nicotine. 3 mg isn't enough for someone trying to get off cigarettes. I'd go at least a 6 mg or 8 mg. If you vape too much and get too much nicotine, yes, you'll develop a headache. Just stop vaping for a little while and it should go away on its own. Make sure to drink lots of water. Vaping dehydrates you so increased water intake is a must -- not soda, not coffee or tea, or anything other than plain water. If the juice tastes a little "bad" when you increase the nicotine, then just have the vendor increase the flavor a little to mask it. Hang in there, we've all been through it. The first few weeks are especially trying because your body is detoxing from all the carcinogens that you took in with cigarettes. If you can hang in there, this will pass.

    Pretty productive night for me tonight- 1 x 100ml & 2 x 30mls of Apple Pie Gelato, another 100ml of my ADV Mother's Milk Clone (I know, I know, old news but I love this stuff), 100ml of my Hawaii 5-0 (Peach, Mango, Watermelon, Kiwi & Lime with a splash of mint & koolada), 30ml of my second attempt at a Heisenberg, 30ml of Watermelon, Kiwi and koolada (Lady Lumps) and 30ml of Banana Ice-Cream. Sell a few 30s to the guys at work and my cousin and the rest should get me by for a little bit...

    I got a 160w Kanger Dripbox shortly after they came out, the RDA that comes with it leaves much to be desired, but the mod itself is a great dual 18650 mod. It came with a extra bottle too.

    Adulting....

    Congrats! Yes, living alone is very expensive, but also can be very enjoyable. Don't be lured by the cost of fast-food... eating out for one can be cheaper than cooking for one, but cooking is healthier (and fun), and leftovers are a good thing Congrats on getting engaged, too! Once June rolls around you'll find you'll be moving into the best time of your life Just don't stress over wedding plans or over-extend your budget... you can be married for free or $100K wedding... but the end result is the same... you're still married... so put that into perspective and save some $ for the two of you AFTER the wedding, rather than a big show for family and guests.

    We have Moma Ground Hog. Pretty much stays to herself and lives under the shed. She has become a pretty big girl over the years. I love watching her train her little ones. Right now the apple trees are starting to drop a few apples so she is having a feast.

    We have a family of rabbits that took up residence under our garden shed. I'm sure they were quite disappointed there was no garden this year! They loved to nibble at the green beans! A couple of the small ones hollowed themselves a nest in my phlox bed. So now I have a bare spot there. One of the bigger ones sits in the yard next to the garage to greet me when I come home from work. When my headlights shine on "him", he takes off.

    Ahh, yes, we have several where we live in the woods... and they are quite the little thieves too, lol... I just put out new solar sidewalk / driveway lights and noticed the "heads" started going missing. The other day I watched one climb down from the tree, run over to the driveway, pull the head from the stake, and run back into the tree with it! Now there are several of my solar lights about 40' up in the big Hickory tree at the bottom of my yard They also clean out my bird-feeders regularly, and are quite vocal when it's empty... I've not put anything in the feeders since mid-summer, so I think stealing my lights is their way of retaliation?

    So cute! Does he ever scratch at your door to get your attention? There was a tree outside of our old apartment. If I ever forgot to put the nuts (walnuts and almonds) out, Mr. Squirrel would climb the tree so she could see inside my kitchen window and bark at me until I put nuts out for her. My SO named her Mr. Squirrel. It wasn't until much later that we found out that he was a she. Gotta love the little critters. Now, I have a Great Horned Owl hanging out on our roof who is rather vocal. All. Night. Long. Mix that with the pack of coyotes that live in the culvert in the next lot over and we have quite a chorus at night.

    It was rough for me to get started into it. There was like a threshold I had to get over and then it started rolling. A place you may want to look at is www.e-liquid-recipes.com. They post a lot of mixes that you can open up and see what flavors they used to make them. They also have a forum but join at your own risk. There are a few regulars there that are really rude, spiteful, guttural, and vulgar. I'll leave it at that. I discontinued my membership simply because I did not want the affiliation. There are also a few folks here that do dyi. If you have a liquid you would like to make or clone, you could try asking. It's really great once you start getting the hang of it.

    I purchased this stealthy BLACK Petri Lite mechanical mod at www.dotmod.com for $120US. I'm in no way affiliated with the company. This product was purchased by me 100% and not sent to me for review from any vendor. The matte GOLD Petri RDA (pictured) is not included, it was purchased by me separately. Yes, it's yet another Dotmod product review from me, this time a mechanical mod. Before I begin, I just want to stress that the use of this product is for those seasoned & experienced vapers who are already well educated in battery safety, have good knowledge in ohm's law, and have had experience with these types of products in the past. This review isn't education in any of those fields. If this product interests you or you feel like you would like to know more about the use of mechanical mods, I highly encourage you to watch beginner videos on YouTube, search right here in this forum for help, or maybe even ask a member for guidance. Mechanical mods are nothing to be afraid of and you definitely shouldn't be the slightest bit discouraged. A few of my favorite reasons for using these types of devices is not being "limited" by a chipset and having the easiest, most reliable vaping experience there is, period. This device will work no matter what; no check atomizer warning, no glitches due to system failures/settings, and no error codes. Just push a button and it fires, simple as that. When used maturely and properly, mechanical mods are a wonderful way to vape. To find out what I think about Dotmod's Petri Lite, let's begin now.. .: PACKAGING :. One (1) limited-edition 24K gold-plated brass drip tip Two (2) springs: 1 original Petri spring (light throw), 1 super heavy silver-plated beryllium copper spring One (1) mini Allen key for button assembly One (1) certificate of authenticity .: FEATURES :. Hard-hitting, innovative naval brass/anodized aluminum composite button design Precision anodized aluminum tube and body 24K gold-plated threading and accents 24K gold-plated copper contacts Hybrid connection Fully masked internals (no cleaning, ever) Precision micro-engravings Beautiful color finishes Individually serialized (inside of the contact, apologize for the focus) .: THOUGHTS :. Using this mod for some time now and knowing the ins-and-outs, it feels just as great in the hands as both my Dotbox's and gives me a satisfying vape every time I hit that 24K Gold button. The soft texture of the tube feels sweet in my hands, it's hard to describe. Hard, agile, sturdy but soft and lovely to touch, Dotmod bearing that "high end" effect once again, on the eyes and to the hands. The overall maintenance is very good. It's very little to maintain compared to my other silver, copper, and brass mechanicals due to the oxidation of those metals and constantly having to clean the contacts for superior conductivity to achieve the best vape experience possible. Having the 24K Gold on the contacts ensures great conductivity, great hits, less time maintaining; more time enjoying your delicious juices and blowing milky clouds. .: VERDICT - woo-hoo or boo-hoo? :. Pleased with the consistent solid performance, how the fit and finish has held up till now, it's a definite WOO-HOO from me. I highly recommend this mod to anyone just getting into mechanicals, it's beginner friendly and also great for the seasoned veteran vaper **Again, as long as you're using it safely and you don't push your batteries too hard. Always use atomizers with PROTRUDING 510 pins, definitely NO SUB OHM TANKS with this product**. I have no doubt vapers will be pleased using this device and adding it to their own collection.

    Watch what you vape

    Alcohol is frequently found in flavorings, so it is not uncommon to find eliquids that have alcohol listed as an ingredient. Alcohol doesn't dry out your lungs... it burns-off quickly and doesn't hurt anything. I frequently soak a coil in Everclear (pure-grain 150-proof) alcohol to get the flavor of a bad juice out of a new-ish coil so I can use another flavor. If the alcohol hadn't completely dried (evaporated) by the time I use it, it will give the new juice a "flat" flavor for the first few puffs, but hasn't given any ill effects. PG is Hygroscopic (absorbs/attracts water), and is therefore a humectant (used to keep things moist). PG will readily absorb moisture in your body (lungs) and gives you a dry mouth/throat feeling. This is why vapers should drink plenty of WATER to combat PG robbing you of moisture as you exhale. Alcohol in eliquid (which is usually very small amounts, like 1%) does not cause this problem, compared to the much higher concentrations of PG (ranging from 10-80% of the total volume of the liquid).

    .: FΛDED REVIEWS :. DOTMOD'S DOTBOX

    Appreciate you taking the time to do the review. Very nicely presented! Questions I would like to see referenced in a review if possible include: 1. What's the menu system like? Easy to navigate? Logically presented? Not too many crazy button combinations to remember? 2. Battery life? That's always rough to address, I know, maybe compared to some popular mod with the same number of cells? 3. Temperature control. I'm a huge fan. How does it compare to the smoothness of say YiHi or DNA? 4. Any quirky stuff? e.g. battery doors that flop open after a couple of months use, juice finding it's way into the inside of the mod, battery compartments that chew away at the battery wraps, jumps out of TC on occasion for no known reason. I know it has to be very difficult to answer everybody's questions and or anticipate them. I really like the fact that you emphasize feel in the hand. A lot of reviewers glaze over the feel and that is a make or break for me at the end of the day regarding if I will pick it up or no.

    Gettin the hang of this

    Throat hit is a product of PG, as well as some flavorings and high % Nicotine, too. PG is the primary though. If your mixes are 50/50 PG/VG or higher VG content, get your Nicotine mixed in VG. If you like thinner juices with more throat-hit... higher PG mixes, then get your Nicotine in PG or 50/50 mix. If you're mixing a juice that is 20% flavoring, and you use Nicotine mixed in pure PG, then you'll NEVER get your mixture higher than 30/70 PG/VG mix with 10mg Nicotine strength... it just won't be possible because the flavorings and Nicotine are PG based. If you go higher than 10mg Nicotine strength (using a 100mg/ml PG base), you'll lessen the VG % because you'll use more PG-based Nicotine. The MAX VG % you'll get (using zero Nicotine) is 80%. NOW... here's a kicker... All of the above is assuming you're using 100mg/ml (10%) Nicotine base. If you're using a weaker base, then you'll require more of the Nicotine base to reach your desired level of Nicotine strength. For example, 20% flavoring, and using a 6% Nicotine base (60mg/ml) in PG... your max VG % would be 63%. Make sense? Using a 36mg/ml stength Nicotine base... your max VG % would be 52.5% (with the final juice being only 10mg strength). If you're happy with 50/50 mixes, or even 40/60 mixes (max 20mg/ml Nicotine strength, using 10% Nicotine base), then you can use PG-based Nicotine, otherwise, obtain VG based Nicotine. Another thing to consider is the shelf-life... PG has a shelf-life of something like 10 years (although DOW chemicals says only 2 years, but they are in the business of SELLING IT)... VG has a shelf-life of about 5 years. Nicotine has a shelf-life of 2-years... all of these are non-refrigerated, dark containers. If you freeze or at least refrigerate your PG/VG/Nicotine, they will last MUCH longer. 10% Nicotine in PG base will have a shelf-life of between 6 and 8 years. The same in VG will last 3-4 years (again, non-refrigerated). So, if you want to buy Nicotine in bulk... PG will last longer than VG base, but if you freeze them in air-tight dark-colored containers, which are full to the rim (zero air in the bottle)... they will both last pretty much forever.

    Just a tip! TC loves airflow. Too little airflow action makes coil ceiling out at max temp and shuts it down. That's just my experience and my advice on getting most out of TC. YMMV.
