Many of my friends and family said it couldn’t be done. They would say things like, “The grilling industry is dominated by only a few major brands. What can you provide that they can’t?” At face value, this was true, but I knew that these major brands had grown fat and lazy. Over the years, shareholders had demanded more and more profits, and they responded by manufacturing lower quality products in mass quantities and cutting back on customer support. I had a hunch that Cave Tools could fill the void that these big brands left behind. WE COULD create high quality barbecue and cooking tools that lasted for years. WE COULD offer boutique-style service from real people. WE COULD provide more value than our competitors by going above and beyond for our customers. We combined our vision with some good old fashioned American hard work and Cave Tools started to grow. Customers starting writing in to us expressing how satisfied they were with their products and how surprised they were that our service actually follows up on every order to make sure the transaction went smoothly. Crazy Right? As our customer base grew, we decided to give more back. We developed our own barbecue recipe book with step by step instructions and tutorial videos. We created an internal meat temperature guide and built the Cave Tools member’s area to be an educational resource for all things grilling. Instead of charging, we decided to offer all of this great information for free to our customers as our way of saying thank you. What started out as a small company with a BIG vision has grown to touch the lives of thousands of people throughout the United States and abroad. No matter how large we get, we will always stay true to our Entrepreneurial Roots because hard work and perseverance is in our blood. When you purchase from Cave Tools, you get much more than just a cooking product. You become part of the Cave Tools community where we treat you like family. Thank You For Being Amazing, Michael “Medium Rare” O’Donnell

$29.99 USD

Rubberized Grip Easy to grip and can be removed easily for washing. Makes it a lot easier to use with different styles, sizes and shapes carafes. Versatile Use Fits almost all brand carafes, including but not limited to; Osaka®, Chemex®, Hario®, Bodum® and more. Titanium Coated, Laser-Cut Stainless Steel Made from 18/18 Stainless Steel and coated with a gold titanium layer it is highly durable, and can withstand high heats. It does not absorb any essential oils like a paper filter does, and results in a richer better-tasting coffee. The double filter consists of tiny laser-cut holes and a stainless steel mesh on top. The Osaka Gold Cone results in clearer coffee than any of the leading brands. The cone can produce up to 12 (5 oz) cups of coffee. The cone is also dishwasher safe. How to use the Osaka Gold Cone Dripper Place in any carafe and fill with your desired amount of coffee grounds. (medium grind will work best) Fill a kettle with hot water (preferably at around 195-200 Fahrenheit) and slowly pour in a circular motion. Be careful not to pour too much water at once, rather let it drip through before adding more. It should take about three minutes for a 6 once cup of coffee to finish dripping. Now just remove the filter and pour to enjoy your coffee! INTRODUCING OSAKA JAPANESE PERFECTION IN EVERY CUP OF COFFEE. Osaka is a large city on the Japanese island of Honshu which is known for its modern architecture, boisterous nightlife and delicious coffee shops. Inspired by its rich aromas and unique brewing techniques, Osaka Coffee was born. We carefully design each of our products to give you the ultimate coffee experience. Every one of our products are sleek and attractive to display, and will perform better than anything else. If you are not yet in love with the process of coffee-making, be prepared to be infatuated. With Osaka it is always so much more than design, it is about finding the perfect balance between aesthetics and performance. Since 2013, our product line has been continuously expanding to what we currently carry. But our coffee enthusiastic designers are developing, tasting and testing many more products and designs that we look forward to delivering to the coffee consumer in the coming year. We are excited to continue to bring beautiful, quality coffee brewers. Our Brand Mission We at Osaka are strong devotees of what is called the “third wave of coffee”. It is essentially the belief that coffee is not just a drink or a commodity, it is a specialty. Much like wine the flavors are nuanced and vary greatly. We believe that in order to fully enjoy coffee it is not just the source of the beans or the method of roasting. If you brew it incorrectly the results will not be satisfactory. With our brewers, guides and tips, you too can learn to really enjoy a cup of coffee brewed perfectly. In the box we have included a guide with detailed instructions and tips, to help you brew the best cup of coffee you ever had.

The user-friendly design of our safety pins allows them to be easily handled while maintaining effective security. This safety pin has a pin diameter of 1/4". CURT safety pins can also be purchased with a 12" chain attachment to mount onto your trailer coupler and prevent the safety pin from being misplaced.

A Fine Imitation: A Novel by Amber Brock

“Money. Sex. Intrigue. Amber Brock's debut has all the trappings of a page-turning work of historical fiction.” -- InStyle "Brock’s introspective characters, satisfying sub-plots, and unexpected—but justified—twists elevate the novel from a period romance to a suspenseful peek inside high society’s gilded cage." -- Historical Novels Review "If you love The Great Gatsby, this is your read.” -- theSkimm “There’s never a dull moment in this debut novel centered on an intriguing and tightly woven story line. Vera’s struggles are highly relatable, and the anguish she feels will resonate with countless readers. This surefire hit is certain to be beloved by fans of Beatriz Williams’s Along the Infinite Sea and Anton DiSclafani’s The After Party.” -- Library Journal, starred "An absorbing tale of art, deception, romance, and forbidden desire." -- Publishers Weekly "Told from the inside of the gilded cage, A Fine Imitation explores one Manhattan socialite's growing realization that who she's been brought up to be is increasingly at odds with who she is. Although set in a rarified corner of the early twentieth century, this lush, incisive debut novel explores the universal choice between doing what is right versus what is expected." -- Miranda Beverly-Whittemore, New York Times bestselling author of Bittersweet "In A Fine Imitation, Amber Brock gives us a portrait of a woman and her times that shines with authenticity and charm. Women especially must read it--here we are, ladies, each and every one of us." -- Anne Rivers Siddons, New York Times bestselling author of Low Country "Rich in color and drama, A Fine Imitation is a sharp and absorbing period piece that skillfully portrays the tensions of social class and love. Fans of Amor Towles and Laura Moriarty will adore Amber Brock—a spellbinding new voice in historical fiction.” -- Erika Robuck, national bestselling author of Hemingway's Girl About the Author AMBER BROCK teaches British literature at an all girls' school in Atlanta. She holds an MA from the University of Georgia and lives in Smyrna with her husband, also an English teacher, and their three rescue dogs.

$11.80 USD

From the Back Cover A vision. You as a leader may have it, but has your organization caught it? If a leader's vision is all about what could be and what should be, why are you buried under what is? Noted author and pastor Andy Stanley points out that if followers don't get the vision, it's because the leaders haven't delivered it. He reveals the three reasons vision doesn't stick. And then he delivers three ways to make vision stick, to make you a leader worth following: 1. Cast vision strategically: defining your vision. 2. Celebrate vision systematically: regularly rejoicing in the successes 3. Live your vision continuously: putting your vision into practice in your own life With Making Vision Stick, you'll learn how to propel you and your organization forward on the vision God has granted you. About the Author Communicator, author, and pastor Andy Stanley founded Atlanta-based North Point Ministries in 1995.

The Gene: An Intimate History An Amazon Best Book of May 2016: In 2010, Siddhartha Mukherjee was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his book The Emperor of All
2

An Amazon Best Book of May 2016: In 2010, Siddhartha Mukherjee was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his book The Emperor of All Maladies, a “biography” of cancer. Here, he follows up with a biography of the gene—and The Gene is just as informative, wise, and well-written as that first book. Mukherjee opens with a survey of how the gene first came to be conceptualized and understood, taking us through the thoughts of Aristotle, Darwin, Mendel, Thomas Morgan, and others; he finishes the section with a look at the case of Carrie Buck (to whom the book is dedicated), who eventually was sterilized in 1927 in a famous American eugenics case. Carrie Buck’s sterilization comes as a warning that informs the rest of the book. This is what can happen when we start tinkering with this most personal science and misunderstand the ethical implications of those tinkerings. Through the rest of The Gene, Mukherjee clearly and skillfully illustrates how the science has grown so much more advanced and complicated since the 1920s—we are developing the capacity to directly manipulate the human genome—and how the ethical questions have also grown much more complicated. We could ask for no wiser, more fascinating and talented writer to guide us into the future of our human heredity than Siddhartha Mukherjee. --Chris Schluep "This is perhaps the greatest detective story ever told—a millennia-long search, led by a thousand explorers, from Aristotle to Mendel to Francis Collins, for the question marks at the center of every living cell. Like The Emperor of All Maladies, The Gene is prodigious, sweeping, and ultimately transcendent. If you’re interested in what it means to be human, today and in the tomorrows to come, you must read this book." (Anthony Doerr, author of All the Light We Cannot See) "The Gene is a magnificent synthesis of the science of life, and forces all to confront the essence of that science as well as the ethical and philosophical challenges to our conception of what constitutes being human." (Paul Berg, winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry) "Compelling... Highly recommended." (Booklist, starred review) “Sobering, humbling, and extraordinarily rich reading from a wise and gifted writer who sees how far we have come—but how much farther far we have to go to understand our human nature and destiny.” (Kirkus, starred review) "Mukherjee deftly relates the basic scientific facts about the way genes are believed to function, while making clear the aspects of genetics that remain unknown. He offers insight into both the scientific process and the sociology of science... By relating familial information, Mukherjee grounds the abstract in the personal to add power and poignancy to his excellent narrative." (Publishers Weekly, starred review) “A magisterial account of how human minds have laboriously, ingeniously picked apart what makes us tick. . . . [The Gene] will confirm [Mukherjee] as our era’s preeminent popular historian of medicine. The Gene boats an even more ambitious sweep of human endeavor than its predecessor. . . . Mukherjee punctuates his encyclopedic investigations of collective and individual heritability, and our closing in on the genetic technologies that will transform how we will shape our own genome, with evocative personal anecdotes, deft literary allusions, wonderfully apt metaphors, and an irrepressible intellectual brio.” (Ben Dickinson, Elle) “Magnificent…. The story [of the gene] has been told, piecemeal, in different ways, but never before with the scope and grandeur that Siddhartha Mukherjee brings to his new history… he views his subject panoptically, from a great and clarifying height, yet also intimately.” (James Gleick, New York Times Book Review) “Many of the same qualities that made The Emperor of All Maladies so pleasurable are in full bloom in The Gene. The book is compassionate, tautly synthesized, packed with unfamiliar details about familiar people.” (Jennifer Senior, The New York Times) “Mukherjee’s visceral and thought-provoking descriptions... clearly show what he is capable of, both as a writer and as a thinker.” (Matthew Cobb, Nature) “His topic is compelling. . . . And it couldn’t have come at a better time.” (Courtney Humphries, Boston Globe)
