I truly enjoyed lore from this set. It has inhaled me to strike start a social media foundation for a occupation I deficiency to erect in the prospective as well as focus more on my hypostatic LinkedIn computation. Jason really drove home the matter of social media in now’s digital the. He has convinced someone that once believed that one could win without festive media into a total believer of the power of companionable media supplies. I believe that the adroitness of social media marketing is what the skill of worn Microsoft discharge was some repetition past. What once was discretionary will suit an idiopathic part of supplies and a fatality for any office large or slender. Businesses will have to learn how to market on social media thoroughly to hinder germane and augment.
Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different: A Biography
Steve Jobs: The Man Who Thought Different: A Biography
I liked this unauthorised biography of Steve Jobs. I liked the unauthorised biography of Susan Boyle by Alice Montgomery too. I also read Susan Boyle's autobiography, which I enjoyed as well. Somehow these two unauthorised biographies held more allure for me. The Steve Jobs book was an interesting read. I thought at the beginning the author was anti Steve Jobs, but that impression went away as I progressed through the book. I have a lot of sympathy for the late Jobs, and understand that to lead is often not easy. He could see what was required and went for it. I admire the man. You can't please all the people all of the time? Many who worked for him recognised the need for this sometimes aggressive approach, but wouldn't have had it any other way in retrospect. The cover picture was an attractive feature, enticing me to buy. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Steve Jobs, or if you're just curious. In my opinion it's worth the read.

Experiments in Honesty: Meditations on Love, Fear and the Honest to God Naked Truth
Listen. I know this review says Nick wrote it. He didn't. It's Gwenn here.

I am not gonna try to sell you on something that I don’t think you need. I value our friendship and your money not being wasted too much for that. And even with all of that said I can, without hesitation, recommend you buy this book. I grew up in the Christian tradition. I was fully bought into that lifestyle. And then I lived outside of America. And now I don’t know what to think. I honestly don’t. There’s a part of me that just wants to throw up my hands and walk away, but there’s also something that won’t let me completely sever ties with my faith. I know a lot of people who are in the same spot. Friends—this book is for us. It really is a fresh look at issues of faith (and Jesus) formatted into storytelling chapters. My friend, Steve, the author, is a (relatable) mystic, a talented artist, and an award-winning storyteller. This book is an excellent collection of his stories. Some come from the Bible— some come from his life. All of them are very readable and make you think. You’ll want to read it once for the entertainment factor and the next time to let each episode ruminate. You need to buy it.
Songs of Bob Dylan
Songs of Bob Dylan
I am a Dylan devotee from way back when, so I was just a bit negative about Joan Osborne making an album of Dylan songs. All I knew from Joan was the one fantastic hit in which she asked, "What if God was one of us?" Now that I have heard this album, I am very pleasantly surprised. As far as Joan's voice is concerned, I find it to be deeper, just a little raspier, than I expected, and I like it. And she keeps things simple, very little showy emoting. The arrangements for the tracks are smooth country-rock, with some reminding me of the tracks on Dylan's award-winning "Time Out Of Mind". They are mellow without being dull or sleep-inducing, and there is excellent guitar throughout the album.

My favorite tracks are probably the most serious tracks. "Rainy Day Women" and "Highway 61 Revisited" were, on the surface, fun songs in Dylan's hands. In Joan's hands they are slow and bluesy. "Rainy Day Women" sounds particularly sinister by virtue of the backup vocals that frame the song. "Highway 61" opens with, "God said to Abraham, kill me a son/Abe said, man, you must be puttin' me on". With those words, the dramatic arrangement and Joan's ominous vocal, right away you know you are in serious territory. "High Water" is bluesy rock, with Joan expressing urgency due to the misfortunes described in the lyrics. "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome" is slow and folky, and the quiet cello arrangement helps to soften the sorrow in the song. "Masters Of War", one of Dylan's most famous "finger-pointing songs", is also folky, but darker. The mood is angry, and Joan's voice has an appropriately accusing edge.

Some material is more upbeat. "Tangled Up In Blue" is smooth country-rock and so is Joan's vocal. "Buckets Of Rain" is light in mood but calmer than the duet Dylan sang with Bette Midler on her album, "Songs For The New Depression". "Quinn The Eskimo" sounds pretty joyous (the lyrics actually say, "Everybody's gonna jump for joy!"), and "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" is an unqualified country-folk delight. The remaining tracks are perfectly fine vocal interpretations by Joan. She is a much more accomplished vocalist than I gave her credit for. Even "Ring Them Bells" is tolerable. 25 years ago, Heart included that song on an album, and I just did not like the song at all, nothing to do with the singers. But Joan's version sounds a little better.

The Bootleg Series Vol. 6: Live 1964, Concert at Philharmonic Hall
First off even thou I am a HUGE Dylan fan I have always been lukewarm about his folk records. Don't get me wrong "freewheeling" and "another side of..." are excellent records and the others of this ilk are good records and should be checked out even by a passive fan. I am also not a Joan Baez fan either. But this is a great summation of his out put to this point of hi career.
Now the SACD. It is 5.0 so you do get an audio landscape around you but (like the CD) the audio is a little too bright for me (thin sounding with lots of high end but not much bass) but it sounds good considering the source tapes involved. This was mastered by Columbia records but never release hence it coming out on an indie label (Audio Fidelity - who by the way just put out Santana's Lotus live album. Again lacking bass but if you turn your sub up it sounds great). I held off buying this album mainly due to price $92 was a little too steep for me. But even thou I am not a huge fan of this album I knew if I didn't pick it up down the road I would regret it.
Over all I am happy with the purchase but I was hoping for more. But seriously what was I expecting, a man singing with his guitar is not exactly the kind of thing you would think would come to life with a multi channel release. It does give you the sensation of sitting in the audience but the rears are reverb only.
If you are an idiot completist ( like me) you should like it. If you want to check the album out but don't want to spend $60 pick up the CD version (it does sound good).
Subterranean Homesick Blues: A Tribute To Bob Dylan's 'Bringi
Subterranean Homesick Blues: A Tribute To Bob Dylan's 'Bringi
Subterranean Homesick Blues is an astounding record. After having listened to the decent "Infidels" it is very nice to listen to Dylan at his best. Subterranean Homesick Blues (the title is just a tad long?) is a brilliant record. It even has a short poem/story written by Dylan himself. I can not say that I totally understand what he is writing about. The book-let itself is a sorry story. Poorly shot photos that look like they have been done by friends. No lyrics in the book-let and general feeling that it was done with less then a professional touch. Which is a shame since the music is grand. Songs such as Subterranean Homesick Blues, On the Road Again makes this truly a classic!

Hi folks,
I got this camera a week ago since my old laptop's internal camera was like 0.3 megapixels and the video image it was recording was just terrible. So I decided to come here and get some nice camera for a good value. Reviews were different, good and bad... And guess what? I've got it, hook it up to my desktop computer (just on the top of the monitor), the good thing is a plug and play out of the box for windows 10 and I was surprised about the picture quality. It's just awesome! I really love it. So clean and crisp.
I'm using this web camera on a daily basis for my work (remotely now lol). It works with all apps I've tried it, Webex, Microsoft Teams, Zoom, GoToMeeting, you name it, works with all apps just fine. All people on the other end of the call immediately mentioned that the quality of my video calls greatly improved. It also has a built-in microphone, so you don't have to worry about getting an additional one. The USB cord of the camera is pretty long. It helped me a lot since my desktop computer's case sits next to my desk on the floor. The camera has a pretty good engineered holder, so you can attach it to practically any possible monitor, but even in case if not, it comes with a mini tripod, which you can attach to the camera's holder. Oh, another very important future that the camera comes with a mechanical privacy shutter, which you can close when the camera is not in use.
Overall great value and quality for the price. Absolutely recommend if you are having daily video calls, meetings or just web chats.
Nike Boys' Air Force 1 Trainers
Nike Boys' Air Force 1 Trainers
I wear a women's 7, and have learned to take size charts with a grain of salt. I ordered these Nikes in Boys size 6 and am glad to report that the length not too gaping whilst the toebox width is at least sufficient.

I have arch problems in general and find these Nikes to be surprisingly supportive - After 3 weeks of wearing almost every day, I find the shoes to still prevent me from over pronating. It's notable to point out that they are still arch supportive as I wear them most frequently with the laces ultra loose and the velcro no strapped at all.

I have very high instep (the bump on top of foot) and thus I have to wear all shoes with loose laces and straps.
"glow in the dark"
"glow in the dark"
Wow! Does it put off a glow! I bought this to cut little pieces to put on light switch plates to find in the dark. Also put a strip around my flashlight handle, strip on the back of my cell phone, and a dozen other places. Make sure when you put it on you don't stretch or try to angle it. It will just pull to its original shape and create a bubble. If you put it on straight and without pulling, it adheres fine. It also does not work over a surface that is not smoothe and flat (around the smoothe handle of a round flaslight is fine). It will blister up. Very satisfied.
Saving Lincoln
Saving Lincoln
This is not a Hollywood blockbuster-budget film; it was funded by Kickstarter, and for a film of such humble origins, I believe they did a fine job. The cinematography is clever, with action superimposed against a background of actual history photos, a feature over which some reviewers who are expecting Cecil B DeMille have griped. Although they claim to have made great efforts to preserve historical accuracy, there are some points where great liberties were taken (Lamond's views toward slavery, for example). Where the film excels, however, is in its depiction of Abraham Lincoln. There is a tendency to portray Lincoln as a stoic, grim-faced and unflappable man; contemporary accounts, however, reveal him to have had a keen sense of humor and at times to have acted almost clownish. Tom Amandes, as Lincoln, gives a superb performance that does a lot to humanize our most revered president. It was suitably delightful for me to see Mr. Lincoln brought to life so skilfully that I was willing to accept some artistic license taken for the benefit of the narrative.

If you are looking for HD special effects, don't watch it. If you are looking for a perfectly accurate historical documentary, don't watch it. If you are looking to step back in time and meet Abraham Lincoln as he was, then you should definitely watch it.
Captain America by Ta-Nehisi Coates Vol. 1: Winter in America (Captain America by Ta-Nehisi Coates (1))
Captain America by Ta-Nehisi Coates Vol. 1: Winter in America (Captain America by Ta-Nehisi Coates (1))
Having completed his run with Black Panther, Ta-Nehisi Coates, takes his crack at a less obvious choice for his talents, Captain America. If I found this volume a little too heavy on narrative and a little low on action, I enjoyed it a lot overall. The art is serviceable, but not amazing. Where Coates shines as a writer is (a) his development and consideration of personal relations, which is first rate and (b) his focus on Captain America's place within comicbook history and the increasing self-doubt of American society. Coates elides many of the social issues he focuses on in his "adult" work, but nonetheless, allows us to consider, with Cap, the ways the hope and self-confidence of "the Greatest Generation" has been sapped. He highlights the growth of populism along with that self doubt, even while thinking seriously about the cultural and economic dislocation that lies behind it.

This is not to say that the book is sociology; it is a comic book and has its fair share of both goofy premises and butt kicking. But Coates is clearly aiming to give heft to this work. So far, he's succeeded in finding the balance. Here's hoping that he'll keep it going through the run.

I have purchased a few of these 12 inch action figures and am impressed by all of them but this one. The shield doesn’t stay in his arm (which cause my 2.5 year old to get extra frustrated...first world problems around here). This one seems cheaper overall than the others I have purchased. The coloring/paint is sloppy and the shield situation caused me to review. I wouldn’t purchase again.

Henry David Thoreau: A Life
Henry David Thoreau: A Life
What a splendid life-affirming biography of Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)! Dr. Laura Dassow Walls, who is an English professor at the University of Notre Dame has written an elegant paen to the sage of Walden Pond fame!
Thoreau was born to parents with a Hugenot heritage in Concord Massachusetts. His family became prosperous due to their advances in graphite pencil technology. The family owned a pencil factory that brought them a measure of prosperity. Henry was a genius who loved to explore his native town of Concord and the fields, swamps, woods and mountains of his native region. Thoreau traveled widely through Maine, Canada, distant Minnesota and his native state. He graduated high in his Harvard class. Following graduation he worked in the penci factory, became a professional surveyor, handyman, carpenter, ditch digger and was known for his lecturing, poetry, magazine essays and his famous book Walden. This great classic details his life living in a self made cabin near Walden Pond in 1845-1846. Throreau lived with the family of Ralph Waldo Emerson for a few years becoming a transcendentalist philosopher. He spoke several languages poring over the sacred scriptures found in many Eastern cultures. He never married and his sexuality has been much debated with no firm conclusions drawn. Thoreau was an eccentric man who could be cold and aloof but also warm and loving. He loved children, birds, animals, the fields and woods of Concord. He is known today as a pioneer of ecology and an important advocate of simple living at one with nature. He was also a fervid abolitonist befriending John Brown and his family. He spent a night in jail rather than pay taxes to support a government which fought a war against Mexico and enlsaved African-Americans. He was a friend of such llterary luminaries as Emerson, Walt Whitman, Margaret Fuller, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ellery Channing and many others. He live a rich and full life.
Thoreau was a gentle genius whose philosophy of peace and harmony with humanity and nature is worthy of emulation. It is obvious the author Walls is a fan of Thoreau and so am I! Read this great biography and spend time in the wilderness and cabin with a great American author and human being. Highly recommended!
A Will and a Way
A Will and a Way
This book was originally released in 1986 and has recently been released as an e-book. It passed the test of time for one of Roberts' early M&B type romances. This is not my normal fare but after an operation I had a need for an interlude from heavy thrillers. This filled the bill - while it does follow Roberts' early romance formulas it is sufficiently different to make it a good read for the genre.

Uncle Jolley was an eccentric but very wealthy old man who disliked and distrusted most of his family but was very close to and doted on his niece Pandora McVie and distant relative Michael Donahue (his mother had been Uncle Jolley's niece by Jolley's son's second marriage). The only problem was that Pandora and Michael had never been good friends.

Uncle Jolley had the last laugh on his close family members when he died. He left his collection of magic tricks to his son, and a nephew who kept the first dollar he had made was left the last dollar Jolley made, appropriately framed. Grand nephew Biff was left his collection of matches in the hope that at last he would set the world on fire.

When it came to the main bequest Jolley left most of his considerable wealth and his huge house (Jolley's Folly) to Pandora and Michael "because they understood and cared". The bequest came with a kicker - they had to move into Jolley's Folly and live there together for six months (with only 2 days away) for the estate to revert to them in equal shares.

Jolley sets up Pandora and Michael to live closely together and really get to know one another. He also stirs up his family to find ways to make sure that Pandora and Michael can't fulfil the requirements of the will.

It was an entertaining and interesting romantic setup, against a background of dirty business by the family. I needed the break and it was especially rewarding as the Kindle book had been discounted to pocket change.

Nora Roberts , never fails to astound me.... and she has done it once again.

I'D GIVE HER 10 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 STARS IF THEY WOULD LET ME. Happy Reading !!!
Alexander Pushkin: Complete Prose Fiction
Alexander Pushkin: Complete Prose Fiction
What makes this book so beautiful is that word "Complete". In one handy reference you can enjoy all of Pushkin's prose. Mr. Debreczeny's translation of Pushkin's work is hearty. I believe it's nearly as close as we can come to feeling the work outside of really knowing Russian.
That would be amazing for me: to know Russian and read Pushkin in the language that he raised high in the face of the patrician encroachment of French that had relegated Russian to servant status. Each language must have a unique and valuable propriety in it's innermost meanings, and in reading this work (plus knowing something of Russian culture), I believe you can feel that unique Russian "thing" even through this translation.
You have about fifteen pieces plus Pushkin's own pre-work/research and some fragments. Mr. Debreczeny has arranged them such that you walk through the development of Pushkin as a prose writer. Early on, he did have quite a disdain for prose in comparison to poetry. To paraphrase Debreczeny, Pushkin's first serious writing treated prose as a necessary evil, writing with technical correctness but approaching parody of itself with strict adherence to the concept of prose as a sterile, low medium for expression.
I the later works, you will see the layering of complex themes and characters into prose that for me felt like driving a standard shift with power-assisted steering -- You get just enough resistance to feel the road and keep you engaged and thinking. Also, you just plain enjoy the ride.
Mr. Debreczeny is an excellent guide in his commentary and in his translation.
Evgenii Onegin: A New Translation by Mary Hobson
Evgenii Onegin: A New Translation by Mary Hobson
This audiobook (4 CDs) - titled "Evgenii Onegin" rather than "Eugene Onegin" -- is based on a relatively new translation, published in Moscow in 2011, by Mary Hobson.

I have read half a dozen different English translations so far: rhymed verse versions as well as unrhymed prose versions. Some rhymed verse versions are highly regarded. But, rhyming tends to distort the original meaning and I think those versions become translators' own re-creation to some extent.

The current audiobook is an prose version. It sounds modern and straight-forward, and uses contemporary vocabulary and idioms. Although it occasionally rhymes, lacking in rhythm, it sound like story-telling. This may not be to every listener's taste. Also, it does not appear to be totally faithful to the original, being a "free" translation.

Having said all that, the main advantage of the recording is that we can sit back and appreciate the novel. The reading by Neville Jason is very good, showing a hint of the world-weariness of the narrator (who is a friend of Onegin's).
No Traveller Returns (Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures): A Novel
No Traveller Returns (Louis L'Amour's Lost Treasures): A Novel
I rather enjoyed this book finished by L'Amour's son. There is a glimpse of the hard world of the Merchant Marine Service and their lives ashore as well as on their ships. The descriptions of lost souls who seek to find themselves in normal pursuits when their seafaring lives are over. The actions and thoughts that drove or lead them to the sea are entirely believable, as are their actions and thoughts as they go about their daily lives as seamen. Whether it was excape from bad acts or life itself, or a longing to see the unknown and experience the adventure of travel, the reasons for fleeing to the sea are well documented. There are some aspects of the life of the hobo in the book and the ring true. My father in law "rode the rods" beneath freight cars and tankers from Oklahoma to Califonia and back when he was barely a young man and the stories he told me of the experience were reflected in "No Traveller Returns". I am also familiar with the area of Oklahoma wherein he lived those few years so that is an added benefit for me to read of it. Prepare to be well entertained by the words in the book. I certainly was.
Buddha, Vol. 3: Devadatta
Buddha, Vol. 3: Devadatta
In spite of the title, Buddha, Tezuka departs, at nearly every turn, from the historical account of the life of Siddhartha, and he wanders far afield from the way of the Buddha, at least as passed down to us. In this work, Tezuka not only so thoroughly distorts and corrupts Buddhist philosophy but also so frequently perverts and even abuses the person of the Buddha that it would be no wonder if the reader begins to mistrust the author’s motivation for creating the series, as it unfolds.

Behind the seemingly invulnerable aegis of “artistic license” and with his characteristically magical artistry, Tezuka conjures caricatures of both Siddhartha and Buddha, in this series, that are imposters at best. At worst, he transmogrifies them into idols of a falsified spiritual legacy. In place of the historical Siddhartha and the magnificent Buddha, Tezuka fabricates an alternative retelling of the events of Siddhartha’s life and experience of awakening; the result is a chimeric mash-up of Hindu concepts and syncretized Shinto beliefs that in no way reflect those present in Buddhism. While both of those alternative spiritual traditions are certainly worthy of consideration and respect in their own right, wholly substituting them for Buddhist ones in a series ostensibly about the Buddha—even if fictionally—is not only disingenuous but also does a disservice to both the Buddhist faithful and those curious about Buddhism. For any reader who is well-acquainted with Buddhist legend and philosophy, the recasting so flagrantly—even brazenly—deviates from the inherited spiritual tradition that the reader rather naturally begins to suspect that Tezuka’s gratuitous indulgences and overtly irreverent assaults were willful.

To the reader who is unfamiliar with the Buddha’s teaching, at least as preserved in scripture and thanks to the various and venerable monastic communities worldwide, beware! Beyond the alluring imagery wrought by Tezuka’s fantastic artistic talent, there is almost nothing Buddhist about the Buddha in this series, other than the name and appearance. In contrast to tradition, the Siddhartha of this series is weak and infirm, lazy, emotionally callous, mean—even cruel on one occasion—and, generally, unsympathetic. The Buddha of this series is confused, helpless, hopelessly dependent upon Brahma, emotionally unstable, frequently agitated, grief-stricken, befuddled, and pitiable, a truly pathetic and uninspiring figure. Apart from the occasional vignette that is genuinely touching and the infrequent depiction of the Buddha in an honorable and inspiring pose, the Tezuka’s Buddha is a mirage that bears no resemblance to the one venerated by Buddhists nor even popular conceptions of him. Although it surely is the prerogative of artists to take some license to tell a captivating tale, when it comes to representing historical personas, especially those spiritual or religious ones who have immeasurably influenced humanity, there ought to be some responsibility to represent at least the essence of their teachings with an appreciable degree of fidelity. For example, the Noble Eightfold Path, which is a fundamental component of the Buddha’s teaching, is only ever stated in print by the Buddha once, maybe twice, and late in the series, and even on those occasions, the representation is botched, being inaccurate in contrast to any formulation of the Path. After so many pages, there’s little justification to charitably forgive such an error of commission, other than to attribute it to rank negligence on Tezuka’s part, if not willful counterfeiting.

To the reader who might identify as “Buddhist”, or merely appreciates Buddhist philosophy, and who is intrigued by the prospect of a graphical representation of the Buddha’s life and teachings that might convey a similitude of authenticity, Tezuka’s portrayal of the Buddha will be disappointing, perhaps even concerning. If such a reader has a keen eye for the Triple Gem, then he will recognize in Tezuka’s Buddha—just as Johnny Depp’s Donnie Brasco does with the fake diamond ring—that … “It’s a fugazi.”
CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY and CHARLIE AND THE GREAT GLASS ELEVATOR [Hardcover]
CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY and CHARLIE AND THE GREAT GLASS ELEVATOR [Hardcover]
I like reading this children's book one chapter at a time to my grandson which is all one four-year old can take. Although the illustrations are very well suited to children, there could have been more as children are very visual and love to see pictures as you read to them. Like all of Roald Dahl's books, the narrative and dialog are very clear and crisp and meant to be read aloud. As for the book condition which I bought as used, it was better than described. Very pleased with seller and item purchased. Recommend to anyone who loves reading to young people.
The Young Forester
The Young Forester
The book was given to him when he was a boy so the act made it a extra special book for me. Known mainly for writing westerns, Zane Grey's The Young Forester is often lost in the shuffle. While it's often considered a children's book, The Young Forester follows a young man, Kenneth, in his quest to become a forest ranger.

After gaining his father's permission to go west to work with a childhood friend, Ken stumbles on a lumbering operation that's stripping the trees and leaving nothing behind. Throughout the book, Ken struggles against the loggers to save Penetier Forest and the future of the industry.

Written in a time when the United States' government was beginning to understand conservatism in dealing with the natural world, the story revolves around the same issues many people experienced. Between the underlying story, the strong characters, and beautifully detailed surroundings this book made me want to be a forest ranger. I've only read it once in the last twenty-five years and it drew me in just like it did the first day I was handed my copy.
The Baby-Sitters Club #50: Dawn's Big Date (Baby-sitters Club (1986-1999))
The Baby-Sitters Club #50: Dawn's Big Date (Baby-sitters Club (1986-1999))
As a homeschool parent, I was always on the lookout for the next book or book series that would really get one of my kids reading. Of course, interests vary, so book choices need to be tailored to each individual child.

When my older daughter discovered The Baby-Sitters Club books, I knew I was onto something. I must have bought 100 of these books, all of which she devoured. She also reread many of them. At that age, anything that gets them reading and keeps them reading is a win. From that perspective, I can highly recommend these books.

My daughter loved them so much that she was never willing to part with them. She now teaches fourth grade … and took the books to her classroom!

One of the characters has Type I Diabetes. While I applaud inclusion of any character with a disability in children’s books, mistakes were made. We know this because my younger daughter has Type I Diabetes. But even that proved educational because we discussed the diabetes situations as they arose.

The Simple Truth
The Simple Truth
I've read every Balldacci novel and short. I have only had iffy feelings over one other.

Every one the I've read took a day and a half. This took three weeks I kept it down and reading something else. The story was so loaded with character I confused two with one another and Dellasandro was not well enough expanded in the beginning to retain who exactly he was.

Secondly I heartilly dilike John Fiske I was actually swimming to believe he's killed his brother.

Then tonight I finally had 183 pages and picked up.

The v ending quarter was beyond much he's writhen the b last couple b of b guests I daughters up until just now to finish it. Too bad the last three pages were added, they weren't needed and I just couldn't buyt the making peace

So in short the b book is v week eyetooth if you Ike many charters I usually don't mind them if the author can keep I then straight. The end is Baldacci at his best.

While he's still one b of my favorite withers and I'm pick up his next. This one is one of two I won't reread.

Sorry, David, if you're reading this, I was disappointed.
The Mighty Johns: 1 Novella & 13 Superstar Short Stories from the Finest in Mystery & Suspense
The Mighty Johns: 1 Novella & 13 Superstar Short Stories from the Finest in Mystery & Suspense
Please let me make it clear that I'm reviewing the New Millennium Audio version of The Mighty Johns which also contains The End of Innocence by Anne Perry and The Empire Strikes Back by Meltzer . . . as performed by Scott Brick.

Whatever editorial flaws the book version of this material has, those flaws are seemingly overcome in this audio version.

All three stories require you to suspend your disbelief to enjoy the tales. Otherwise, you'll find these stories to be two-star efforts.

Although these stories each have a game as part of their action, the attitude is definitely anti-sport . . . so if you're a died-in-the-wool fan who doesn't want to hear anything different, I suggest you skip this audio.

In The Mighty Johns, you find yourself waiting for the football in the end zone while having a bizarre discussion about the stadium's scientific symbolism. From there, Tor North, blocker extraordinaire, explores the implications of his curiosity and the possible relevance of obscure phenomena in physics. He soon turns amateur sleuth and trails an old spoor in an unexpected direction . . . thanks to a mysterious custodian. In between there are lots of references to what female fans and players like to do together in the library. The off-beat humor alternates with hoary clichés. I found the story engaging enough to hold my interest . . . but it's hardly a great story.

The End of Innocence could have equally well been the title for all of these stories. I found that story, however, to be the best of the three. Just a few hours before shipping off to France during the opening of World War I, young English men and women find themselves faced with unexpected challenges in their rural homes. A final rugby match provides a turning point for some of these lives . . . and raises chilling ethical challenges that presage the battles to come.

The Empire Strikes Back is inspired by the real life pranks (or "hacks" as MIT students like to call them) that frolicsome students have pulled off over the years at the Harvard-Yale game. Having been at the 1982 game when a weather balloon suddenly inflated from its berth below ground on the field at the 45 yard line, I had high hopes for this story. Unfortunately, those high hopes were dashed by a rather ridiculous . . . and ironic plot. You could skip this story and you won't have missed anything. Fortunately, it's short . . . or I would have graded the audio down to two stars.
Wanderung: Aufzeichnungen
Wanderung: Aufzeichnungen
Hesse in seinem „Paradies“ Tessin. Er genoss es, gemächlich durch die Region zu wandern, sich hier und dort niederzulassen, um zu schreiben und zu zeichnen. Hesse liebte die Landschaft am Luganer See mit all ihren Hügeln und Schneebergen, von Pinien gesäumten Wegen, Palmen, bunten Wiesen und Wäldern.
In diesem schön gestalteten Band der Insel-Bücherei (Nr.1403) führt uns der Wahl-Schweizer durch sein Tessin, lässt uns „seine Gegend“ mit erleben und mit erträumen. Jede seiner Aufzeichnungen wird dabei von einem seiner Aquarelle begleitet.
Gedruckt wurde das alles auf sehr gutem holzfreiem und alterungsbeständigem Wertdruckpapier. Ein gelungener Insel-Band!
Fleabag Season 1
Fleabag Season 1
I didn't really want to like this show, but I thought, "Well, there's nothing better on." And then I was charmed by the lead character, who never really has a name in the series. She's bright, funny, pretty, and covering up a mountain of pain that her family and those around her do nothing to alleviate with a sarcastic whit and humor that is both funny and at times slightly terrifying by parts.

The thing is this show is probably more honest about those "perfect" families that look so good to outsiders. Something a guy she's dating even comments on at one point and she, much like me, just gives him a look like, "Yeah? If you only knew how totally fracked these people all are you'd be running away screaming." Or at least that's what I'd was thinking, and she probably was too.

I won't go into it any further or any spoilers except to say what starts out as a bright, funny lark of a show turns dark and then darker still as the cracks begin to show. You are by turns infuriated and laughing at her and with her, and by the end you just hope she'll simply disappear into the London fog leaving her absolutely terrible damaged beyond all belief family and friends and just get out of there, find someplace to breath, and repair her life.

I'm hoping for more and I'd like to see her find a good place for herself, but since this isn't a show that pretends in Hollywood endings we may not get that. Instead what we will get is probably the sort of raw honesty and the light and dark that life really is made up of in the form of some amazingly talented people telling the story that people all around us live every single day of their lives.

And I think we need more of that, so I'm going to pray for a Season 2 and now find anything that Phoebe Waller-Bridge has ever starred in or done, because I am a complete and total fan of hers now. Something that just doesn't happen too often.
Rubie's Deluxe Harry Potter Child's Costume Robe with Gryffindor Emblem, Large, Black
Rubie's Deluxe Harry Potter Child's Costume Robe with Gryffindor Emblem, Large, Black
Patch looks good and is sewn on, not a sticker. Material is fleece and seems durable, although lint and hair is sticking. As reviewers mentioned, it IS NOT fully lined with burgundy, but has thin strips the sides. I will be tacking the strips down, because they want to fold out and look awkward. I'm sure I can improve it. The clip for closure is garbage, not attached, difficult to open and no doubt won't last the school day. I'm considering buying 2 solid buttons and elastic to DIY a more secure, permanent and functioning one. **Update I purchased a frog closure (google it) sewed it on and it looks great, better yet it looks authentic from movie. Based on REVIEWS, I bought the child size large for a 5 foot, 120 pound upper body heavy tween. It fits but I would have preferred an XL for more "bagginess" through the tummy and shoulders and room to grow, unfortunately no time to return, and it will do. Length is just between mid calf and ankle on her, hopefully allowing her to wear it to school all day without getting tripped up. My thinner proportioned 18 year old, 5'3" & 140 pounds, the Child Large fits perfectly in the shoulders and stomach, just a bit short hitting mid calf area in length. Low rating because the price is in my opinion high for the product quality. With a little ingenuity it can be improved to be a permanent reusable addition to our costume/Halloween box.
Harry Potter Slytherin Crest Mens Black T-Shirt
Harry Potter Slytherin Crest Mens Black T-Shirt
This shirt is not only stylish for any fellow Slytherin, but the fit is exactly as expected. I ordered this a size larger than I actually wear since I prefer baggier shirts, and I must say that the fit was perfect for my taste. The fabric feels very nice on the skin and is very durable. A problem I see in most graphic tees is that the stability of the fabric is flimsy and often rips, but that is far from the case with this shirt! It has been a year since I've purchased this product, and I've worn it so many times without the print coming off or cracking and without any rips, holes, or tears. This is a must buy for any potter-head, especially for fellow Slytherins.
Harry Potter Slytherin Canvas Slip On Shoes
Harry Potter Slytherin Canvas Slip On Shoes
I'm in love with these! I'm a slytherin for life! I was wary of getting these in size L. I've seen the reviewers saying a medium is big enough for them as a size 8-10, others say a medium is too small. Do I think I should've gotten a medium instead of a large? Eh. Putting them on for the first time ( and surely for all the times there after), the space at the back isn't too much that my feet slip out of them when I walk, so I wouldn't say that a large is too big for my feet, which i normally wear a size 10. So I wouldn't say these are too big for my feet. If you wear 9 1/2 I'd say get a medium and that the size for the large would stop at 10 1/2. My feet sometimes are also a double wide, and these aren't narrow at all. The material is good, the bottom of the show is good as well. though it picks up dirt fast. I hope future buyers enjoy these as much as I do!

This product was an awesome buy. The colors of the balloons were absolutely gorgeous once put together. The champagne bottle balloon was very easy to blow up and turned out to be much bigger than I was expecting which was great. The balloons are already various sizes so no need to worry about trying to figure out how much air to put in each one to get the look you want.

So I purchased this figure for my son since hes been collecting it and i must say these legacy collection figures are great...BUT with this figure the only issue I had was how the figure is positioned within the package, when removing the figure out the box both legs are bent sideways and is not able to stand up on its own without it looking funny... not sure how to correct it to make them straight.

Fusion5 14.1inch A90B+ Pro 64GB Windows 10 Laptop - 4GB RAM, 64GB Storage, Full HD IPS, Bluetooth, 2MP Webcam, Dual Band WiFi Laptop
I was looking for a computer to work alongside my 17 inch widescreen desktop replacement laptop to take out and about and things.

It seems to fit the bill perfectly.

The screen is very nice and sharp and the keyboard is full sized as I touch-type so this is important.

The price is also excellent for what one gets and I bought a micro-SD card to offer more memory (the main thing given up or compromised in such a design here is the onboard memory but this machine is designed to allow you to take this into account with micro-SD up to a good size (costing about £20) and what I hope will prove to be an easy to use/install SSD hard disk.

I have also found the company responsive when I have contacted them by email - generally within a few hours - with queries prior to purchase.
Minwax 13613000 Wood Putty, 3.75 Ounce, Mahogany
Minwax 13613000 Wood Putty, 3.75 Ounce, Mahogany
I purchased this putty to patch a small hole, no bigger than 1" in diameter from when I removed the old doorbell.

I couldn't find anything I liked about this product, despite conducting lots of research prior and selecting this one because of the price and positive reviews. I regret my decision.

I'm not an expert at all when it comes applying putty, joint compound, spackle, etc. But, I watched a couple of Youtube videos and it seems pretty straightforward if you have the right tools. I purchased a 4" flex putty knife and followed the instructions on the label. As you can see, after cleaning the surface and drying, I applied the putty with the flex putty knife. I even used a scraper beforehand to wipe out any lingering remnants pieces of wood. As you can see from my pictures, no matter how many times I spread the putty, it would not even a smooth surface. You can see the result in the 2nd picture. After spending 20 minutes or so, I gave up and just left it the way it is knowing that it's not going to get better.

Such a shame because I did so much research before getting this putty. I should have just used wood filler. Wish I can return this, but since it's just a couple of bucks, I'll just have to eat the loss.

Gear S Charger, Samsung Gear S Charging Cradle Dock, SM-R750 AnoKe Replacement Portable Charging Docking Station Cradle Dock + USB Cable Cord for (Samsung R750 Dock)
Someone had given me a Samsung Gear S as it is an older model and they had gotten a newer one. Everything was fine for awhile until the clips on the charger broke and I was having to rig it with rubberbands! I looked up replacement chargers and came across this one, I figured for the price it was worth a shot. That was almost 3 months ago and I've had no issues whatsoever with it, although after learning how delicate they are I'm very gentle with it. Charges like it's supposed to and has held up. Also I recieved it faster than expected which was a bonus because my rigged rubberband charger was barely hanging on and I was afraid I wouldn't be able to charge my Gear!

C2G/Cables to Go 98045 Dual Band Infrared (IR) Receiver with 3.5mm Plug (10 Feet)
I already have the Impact Acoustics 40430 IR repeater in two locations in our house--- love them to death. What I wanted to find out was could I and then how to add a second IR receiver (NOT transmitter/ emitter) and unbelievably the World Wide Web as it is know did not have an answer for me. I had another brand that I tried and it should have been compatible-- but it was a no go. So I finally decided to buy a second of the same IR receiver and I use a Monster splitter---- my prayers were answered--- it works beautifully. What I have is a TV in one room and another TV with all of the equipment hidden in an entertainment center in another. Of course the TV is no problem, but I had to open the door to use the receiver, DVD, and cable box. After adding this I can now use it without having to open the door. I absolutely recommend this product and the 40430 repeater as well.

My daugher (age 6) was bought something similar for her birthday and spent ages designing outfits and colouring them in. Basically what you have are some faint outlines of models and templates of clothes etc that you use to dress the models and then colour in.

It's ideal to pop in the suitcase for holiday with a pack of pens either for those rainy days or even something to do by the pool in the sunshine.

I have subsequently bought this for my daughter's friends as birthday presents.

I can't remember how much I paid as they were reduced. I think £6.50 is what I paid and for the amount of fun and time my daughter got out of it, would say that it is worth the money.

From an educational point of view I would say that it's good for improving their colouring in ability, but it's more about the fun in my opinion.

With regards to durability its pretty good as long as they are careful when pulling out the templates and putting them back in.

I think the age range for this would be 5 - 11ish.

OH. MY. GOD! I normally let several products build up & then write a bunch of reviews together but I've just spent my first night with these babys & I think they've saved my marriage. My husband works really hard & starts really early in the morning so goes to sleep really early too but he snores like a combine harvester & by the time I'm ready to sleep he's in full baritone, window rattling flow. We've tried all the over the counter options & surgery is the only thing left. Well my phone must have been listening in at me moaning about my ear buds stabbing into my ears when I turn on my side & strangling me with wires at 4am because an advert on Facebook suggested some sleep headphones & for once I'm so glad it did. They were from some American site which is something I hate about facebook as I'm not interested in the long wait or extra import costs so I thought I'd look on Amazon & boom! There they are!
I went for these slightly more expensive ones because I do find cheap earphones die pretty quickly & the extra few quid saves on the cost of replacing all the time. Now, it's only been the first night but I'm hopelessly in love, I've been singing their praises on all my podcast facebook groups & subreddits, they're so comfy & to be able to wander to the fridge or the loo without disturbance is wonderful
I'm only 24hrs in but I do believe they've saved my marriage. I haven't tested them working out because I do Yoga & like to hear the instructor so thats not what I bought them for. The only thing I would like is a little velcro patch to tighten them slightly but as others have done I'll just put a little stitch in them. So far they're my favourite purchase of 2020!

VIVO Universal Adapter VESA Mount Kit for 20 to 32 inch Flat and Curved Monitor Screens, 100x100mm Mounting Bracket, Black, MOUNT-UVM01
This is the 3rd product I have purchased to create a non-vesa monitor adaptable to the monitor desk mount. This was definitely better than the 2nd one. If it were not for the video I would have had a tough time putting it together properly. Whoever made the video nice job. One recommendation - I had a hard time determining which screws to use and it was only through trial and error determined which ones to use. could have saved time not just showing screws but labelling them prior to using them on the video.

It took me longer than most people I am not mechanically incline so putting together items without great direction is almost impossible for me. It is sturdy and looks to be holding the monitor very tight to the arm. It is built for up to a 32 inch monitor. Which is the reason I purchased it.

I wanted something that would handle the slightly big monitor and sturdy enough to support it without a doubt about my monitor falling and breaking. There is some misalignment on the support brace.

When putting it together put some tape on the metal piece facing the monitor because it can scratch ti will trying to measure it and make sure it clears all the inputs or screen buttons.

Overall the value is good and the adapter provides a great support for a non-vesa adapter.

This is one of those cases where I have to wonder if the 5 star reviews on here are all fake or in some way purchased by the manufacturer / seller. This product is definitely not worth the money and I can't believe anyone would think that it could be. These are not action figures, they are cheaply made plastic "statues". They were sufficient for decorations but not for my kids to actually play with. This is one of those buyer beware cases where you definitely cannot trust the reviews! I highly recommend NOT purchasing this product. You can get much higher quality buying the individual action figures from a reputable seller at near the same total cost.
