Safe? What does that mean John.
I don't like AI. I don't like it for much at all. Pretty good for conducting

many other choices out there for me. Just my personal couple of pennies.

PS.I would roast green coffee over a camp fire in a cast iron skillet before
I would use Al for anything. In fact I have done it.
