A Curious Boy Named Jeff: Based on Jeff Bezos's Life (Little Kids' Big Lessons Book 1)
I love that this story is based on a modern day success/role model. All kids these days know Amazon so would probably be very interested in learning about Jeff Bezos. This adorable book is beautifully illustrated and wonderfully written with short, easy to read and understand sentences that will capture and hold a young child’s attention. Parents and teachers will appreciate this story because it encourages kids to be curious and observant, to spend time with family and to always read and learn new things! This story promotes important life lessons that our little ones need to be exposed to at a young age. Kudos to the author!

Se trata de un libro corto, de fácil lectura y que sintetiza todo lo explicado en la biografía escrita por este mismo autor. Las conclusiones a las que llega el autor y las reflexiones a las que invita son interesantes.

Hay que decir que el precio me parece ligeramente elevado teniendo en cuenta las características del libro, en mi opinión se podría disminuir el precio 1-2€.
Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits - Complete: P/V/G Folio
Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits - Complete: P/V/G Folio
"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits: Complete" (year 1997) is an excellent and outstanding book. It contains forty-five Bob Dylan songs all arranged in alphabetical order. The greatest hits of Bob Dylan's musical output from "Blowin' in the Wind" in the year 1962 to "Under The Red Sky" in the year 1990 are represented. All of the lyrics of the songs are here along with the guitar chord patterns, melody lines, and piano parts. I give "Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits: Complete" (year 1997) my highest recommendation. I am so happy to own this book, to be able to play Bob Dylan's songs on my B-flat clarinet, and to be able to sing the lyrics.
Go Power! Heavy Duty Modified Sine Wave Inverter (3000-watts)
Go Power! Heavy Duty Modified Sine Wave Inverter (3000-watts)
After testing a friends that had this one but a older model I went ahead and bought it to run a 1/3 horse swamp cooler motor which the older did run just fine...The new Model Might say HD but it is just a chinese built peace of junk like the Harbour freight ones...I've found out that the difference for HEAVY duty is that the Inverters are either high frequency or low frequency...most manufacturers have gone the cheap High frequency route but it will not do if you are looking at high inductive loads I can run my swamp cooler with a borrowed old 1000 watt inverter that weights about 12 pounds but cannot with a new go power that weights like 7-9 pounds...explanation below................................................................INVERSION METHODS EXPLAINED
High Frequency Inverters (HF)
The large majority of inverters available in the retail market are high frequency. They are typically less expensive, have smaller footprints, and have a lower tolerance for industrial loads. HF inverters have over twice the number of components and use multiple, smaller transformers. Their application is appropriate for a wide variety of uses like tool battery chargers, small appliances, A/V and computers, but have a decreased capacity for long term exposure to high surge loads like pumps, motors, and some high-torque tools.

Low Frequency Inverters (LF)
Our UL-listed, low frequency inverters and inverter/chargers are the pinnacle of electrical durability. The massive iron core transformer is aptly capable of absorbing surge loads because of the “Flywheel Effect” inherent in the physical amount of a transformer’s iron. LF inverters have larger and more robust Field Effect Transistors (FET’s) that can operate cooler, in part due to the slower frequency of switching required to produce AC power. These inverters are feature rich to include the optional ability to hardwire additional external GFCI outlets, input of multiple DC voltages, provide regulated dual output voltages (120/240VAC), and integrate chemistry appropriate battery chargers and transfer relays for shore power.

HIGH FREQUENCY
Pros

Smaller footprint
Less expensive
Cons

Doesn’t operate well with high-surge loads like pumps and high-torque tools
LOW FREQUENCY
Pros
Runs well with high-surge loads
Operates cooler
Cons

Heavier
More expensive

I am really enjoying using this to study for my class. I can read the book, take quizzes on the reading ( additional practice section), and the things you can practice in the Practice Atlas are great and should come in handy during my lab practicals. Buying here saved me a ton of money compared to buying at my campus bookstore. I also saved money because I didn’t have to buy a hard copy of the book since it is included here.
Creating Worlds, Constructing Meaning: The Scottish Storyline Method (Teacher to Teacher)
Creating Worlds, Constructing Meaning: The Scottish Storyline Method (Teacher to Teacher)
As a former elementary principal and now, as an educational consultant, I worry about the loss of creativity, spontaneity and engagement in the classroom as we focus intensely on reform and test scores. Jeff Cresswell's book describes a well tested approach which I believe, can lead to very high achievement while preserving the essence of childhood--curiosity, enchantment with ideas, creative thinking and the production of products which make sense to the child. If I had an elementary staff, I'd purchase the book for all of them. Mr. Creswell includes in the title the words "teacher to teacher." This is a critical element in the success of the work. All the practical questions are answered--What does a day with Storyline look like? Do you still teach regular math and reading? What does your plan book look like? What are the roles of the teacher and student? What are some sample Storyline study projects which have been successful? This book answers all these questions in a reader friendly, very visible way. Teachers need the exhilaration and joy of exploring and teaching this way as much as the children do. Storyline preserves the wonder of the journey we call learning. It makes every child want to achieve!

Zahn Ultra Soft Toothbrush for Sensitive Gums, BPA Free Micro Fine Nano Bristles Tooth Brush (Black)
I'm trying to find a toothbrush that is soft enough not to harm my gums if I brush hard. This one is okay, but I think the bristles are too dense or something. Also oh boy does it trigger some sensory issues. I hadn't expected that since it is so soft, but it feels weeeird on my teeth.. especially my crown where it not only feels weird but squeaks 😬😬 It might not trigger other people in the same way it triggers me, but I'm going to have to keep looking for other toothbrushes.

I'm well within the specifications.

That said the velcro along the back did not want to stay done, especially when I leaned forward, you need to be very thin to use this. That ended up being okay for the night because the cape hide it.

At 5'10, when I sat down with this the feet covers were at mid shin.

The padding was so maybe 10x more full in one bicep than the other, and they don't line up well with your arms muscles making it look weird.

If you're extremely thin and under 5'9 this might work for you anyways

Marvel Legends Series Fantastic Four 6" Collectible Action Figure Marvel’s Invisible Woman Toy, 1 Accessory, 1 Build-A-Figure Part
I've been keen on adding an Invisible Woman to my collection for a while, and this FF set is the first BAF set I've completed!!! I managed to snag her for a good price, and she looks great, and is good quality, however, there's two drawbacks.
1. her ankle joints don't bent how they should, especially compared to others in the set. I notice this a lot in the Marvel Legends figures that are women characters, the ankles are often very fragile feeling and often don't bend in ways you'd think they would, which makes displaying them a little awkward, as they can't be posed as easily as male figures, which sucks.
2. Her force field accessory, while awesome, is a total pain. It's difficult to see what you're doing when slotting her hand into it, and it falls out super easily. I've had to throw it in my spare parts box because it kept falling off her hand and knocking stuff over.

Overall I'm still happy with my purchase, any fans of Marvel's First Family will want to grab these while they can :)
Maison Ikkoku, Vol. 3
Maison Ikkoku, Vol. 3
The trials and tribulations of Yusaku Godai continue in the third "Maison Ikkoku" volume. Not quite a drama, not quite a romance, and not quite a comedy, Rumiko Takahashi's charming series is still a charming mess of romantic problems.
The hapless college student Yusaku Godai is still trying to win the heart of the widowed manager Kyoko -- and a hunky, wealthy, charming rival called Shun Mitaka doesn't help his case, since Mitaka is as enamored of Kyoko as Godai is. Nor does the kitten he catsits, which happens to be called "Kyoko Baby," or the comical sports injuries he gets.
But things take a nasty turn when Kyoko's parents begin nosing in her personal life -- her mom wants her to quit her job and remarry, and doesn't care that Kyoko likes her job and is still mourning her husband. Her dad doesn't want her to remarry at all. And when Kyoko encounters Godai and his sort-of-girlfriend, her jealousy begins to spin out of control.
"Maison Ikkoku" is the only one of Takahashi's long-running series to not include a fantasy/SF element, so it's more like a witty sitcom. The slapstick tone of the first stories has been toned down a little, and the more dramatic, intense stories start to shine through, like Kyoko saying that she wants to stay a part of Soichiro's family a little longer.
Takahashi's artwork has become more polished by this point; it's not as polished as it now is, but the "Maison Ikkoku" style had settled firmly into its groove. She relies a little more on intentional comedy (a drunken Godai hugging Kyoko) than on slapstick, although she doesn't shy away from stuff like having Kyoko Baby wet Godai's bed.
Godai's one of those young guys who are a little bit hapless and pathetic. He's nice and generous and loving, but a mildly wimpy type. He dreams of Kyoko, but isn't yet mature enough for her. Kyoko herself has experienced a lot more -- true love, loss, and now she's starting to love again. Previously-introduced characters like the pleasant rivals-for-love Mitaka and Kozue return, and there are a few new ones like Kyoko's pushy, obnoxious parents.
"Maison Ikkoku" starts to really blossom in the third volume, with more dramatic character tension and quite a few surprise twists. Highly recommended.

E-mail giftcards have actually made me a better person. From a history of forgetting to buy gifts until the actual day of the event, I can now purchase a set of giftcards to be delivered on specific dates while not expending any effort. This CPK card found home with my parents, much to their delight. I'm impressed that they were able to download the card and print it without my help, so it must be a very easy process.
Cracker Barrel Sharp White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese Dinner (14 oz Box)
Cracker Barrel Sharp White Cheddar Macaroni and Cheese Dinner (14 oz Box)
When you need a side dish to go with your meal this makes a simple and easy choice. It will serve four people adequately.
The directions are simple, add the macaroni to salted boiling water, cook 7 minutes, drain and add the packet of cheese sauce. Voila! It's done!
We don't have a Cracker Barrel restaurant so I can't compare it to the actual restaurant dish. But Growing up I ate a lot of Kraft dinner (mac and cheese) and velveeta. This version tastes even better. When I eat Kraft dinner today,I find it not cheesy at all. This new version is very cheesy.
Kids will love this mac and cheese. I highly recommend it for time saving and taste.

King Will Magic 7mm Tungsten Carbide Wedding Band Sapphire Blue Lord of Ring Comfort Fit Highly Polished
I first bought this ring for my youngest son. He had some cheap “gum machine” ring that he loved, but lost. He was upset because that ring was symbolic to his young “love” and hope for a “stable future”. So his mother and I found this ring to replace the lost one, and he loved it! However, one day he was walking to the car from the pool and he tripped and the first ring shattered, which his hope did as well... again.
I contacted the seller about this issue, and although they couldn’t issue a refund, they did provide me with a promo code to purchase a new one, for which I was grateful!
If I took anything away from this ordeal it would be that “love and hope” ,for some, can be quite fragile.
Besides the one issue, the ring is quality, especially for the price. King Will’s customer service is superb as well... awesome buying experience!
Kona Winds (The Americana Series Book 11)
Kona Winds (The Americana Series Book 11)
Kona Winds is set on the island of Oahu. The title was a bit misleading. By the title, I expected the story to take place on the Big Island of Hawaii. The author gives a very picturesque account of the islands, using graphic descriptions of sites and native language to prove her point. She made an error in the word plumeria, referring to it as plusneria. She also made an error in describing plumeria as antheriums. The other error or misunderstanding in the story came when she was describing the relation of the brother and sister, who were half siblings. I couldn't quite understand who the mother and father were to each and how they related to the aunt. The story was good. I did not like how combative the male lead character was. As a woman, I would not have put up with his demanding and somewhat abusive behavior. That was a little unrealistic to me. Overall, I enjoyed this read. It was simple and fast paced.
Phoenix, Vol. 9: Strange Beings/Life
Phoenix, Vol. 9: Strange Beings/Life
Phoenix Volume 9 is as good as the other volumes he wrote/drew. I am a big fan of his and have read every single book he's made. I really love his artwork and the storylines are excellent.

As stated in the description, there are 2 stories in this volume. One is about cloning which was real intersting and a fun read! The second story is about a healer who heals people to atone for the murder of her father. These two stories are slow moving allowing you to savor the story as you read it.

I liked both stories equally and the two stories are well told. It's amazing how he comes up with stories that you don't read anywhere else. Very unique stories that makes you want more! I read this book in one day. (if you have the time) Be sure to read his other volumes and his Buddha series. They're all excellent. I can't say which books were better. The only thing I didn't care for of his was the Astro Boy manga series.

Well worth the price!
The 6th Target (Women's Murder Club)
The 6th Target (Women's Murder Club)
What a mind Mr Patterson has. central to his story is four crime busting women whose affection for one another is only superseded by the desire to bring the guilty to justice. I love the way his books are interconnected, one carefully leading into the next. He carefully back fills the present with the past like a long playing film. He personalises the characters in such a way that you feel part of the story. The tendrils that spread out from the core see us becoming familiar with their wider circle officer Pat Noonan, SCU good guy Charlie Clapper, Officers Cappy Mc Neil and Paul Chi . Great interaction from them all. In this one there is a ferry shooting, everyone sees the guy do it, he does not deny it, surely he'll go down. Don't count on it Patterson has a way of turning the tables on your thought processes, Poor Yuki finds herself in her new role as a prosecutor up against a previous allay. Could the sixth target finally bring justice for the victims. There's a kidnap to solve and a rogue killer on the loose at Cindy's new apartment block . Its safe to say Lindsay and Conklin are getting close maybe too close. Lindsay tries to connect with Joe following a surprise career blip and comes away devastated. I see trouble ahead and as much as I'm in love with Inspector Hottie myself I want it to work out for Lindsay and Joe. So enjoy the web of crime things have a way of coming together allowing Lindsay and her ace team to entice the criminals into making mistakes from which there is no escape.

Roald Dahl/Charlie Boxed Set (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator)
I felt the need to read the books because I had seen the movies (both versions) but I'd always wondered what I'd missed from the source. This boxed set is perfect for new readers that want to submerge into the world of Willy Wonka and loving fans (myself included) who want to collect them. The books are beautiful and have a gorgeous jacket cover. I've never been the biggest fan of Blake's illustrative style but it's very well balanced throughout the pages. I don't think the story needs a review because this is a timeless classic.
The Prize
The Prize
Thank you Amazon for helping a resurgence of the novels of Irving Wallace, through Kindle and the books. He was so good and it really was heartbreaking because it seemed for so long he was being forgotten. I've re-read THE SEVEN MINUTES, THE PLOT, THE SEVENTH SECRET, THE PIGEON PROJECT and THE PRIZE and it has been an absolute joy.

These reviews explain and criticize and praise the books more than I am able. But, I can say, they are just so much fun to read. Wallace loved words and he had such a generosity of heart and mind, as shown by how he believed would be the result for the world with THE WORD. His books for the most part are long and so compelling. He was a writer who wrote big bestsellers and they were for real. I don't believe money deals were part of it then or chicanery.

He wrote such gigantic themes so huge, it is amazing. And simply good writing. He could conjure imagination and make them fact. THE PRIZE just towers by the words of a master. THE SEVEN MINUTES is still, I think, an excellent book on censorship and freedom of speech. The dialogue, the characters, are so intelligent. Sometimes, I will read bestsellers that try to fit in his domain, and I really felt stupid reading them.

It seems that he is very little dated, and that surprises me, but it should not. He wrote about sex, from Chapman to Freeburg, turning one book upside down for another. He seemed just immensely happy writing and I hope so. And fine non-fiction like THE SUNDAY GENTLEMAN, his early articles. Always entertaining and he taught with amazement.

He wrote about politics and an underground world where Hitler lived for decades afterwards we thought he had died, and Eva Braun living on. He did write predictive fiction. I think THE R DOCUMENT being published again because of the patriot act and the parallel started it..

He taught us so much about Alfred Nobel, the prize, medicine, science, history of books, trials, the newspaper business, how to make false papyrus, and he had the audacity to write the book of James himself, facts and dates and incidents, always putting human level and a man of immense knowledge and literate. He wrote books concerning world shattering. He dreamed gigantic.

I am just saying that is for me that's all and thank you for the wonderful books returning. Once, on the Tonight Show, Irving Wallace, with that trademark pipe, and a great smile and laugh, talked to Johnny about a party that Wallace had had for writers. He said, he was talking with Rod Serling, and Rod pointed at William Goldman and said "that is a real writer."

What a fantastic thing, such a huge compliment from one of the the best writers there has ever been, to another great writer, about another fantastic writer. And those were just three of the writers there.

Holy cow!

Jacques Sauniere, der Chefkurator des Louvre, wird im Louvre ermordet. Der Harvard Professor Robert Langdon, der sich aus beruflichen Gründen in Paris befindet, wird telefonisch über den Tod Saunieres informiert. Kurze Zeit später steht ein Beamter des DCPJ vor seiner Tür im Hotel Ritz. Dieser bringt Langdon in den Louvre in die Grande Galerie wo der Leichnam Saunieres liegt. Dabei bietet sich Langdon ein bizarre Szene, die durch UV-Licht sichtbar gemacht wird: Saunière liegt nackt auf dem Boden und hat die Gliedmaßen von sich gestreckt. Er hat sich mit seinem eigenen Blut ein Pentagramm auf den Bauch gemalt und eine rätselhafte Botschaft neben sich geschrieben.

O DRACONIAN DEVIL!

OH LAME SAINT!

Der Pariser Polizeichef Bezu Fache befragt Langdon zu dessen Beziehung zu Jacques Sauniere. Währenddessen kommt die Kryptologin Sophie Neveu dazu. Sie informiert Robert Langdon darüber das die amerikanische Botschaft eine Nachricht für ihn habe und bietet ihn eine bestimmte Nummer anzurufen. Und einen Code anzugeben. Doch Langdon landet nicht bei de Botschaft sondern an Neveaus Anrufbeantworter, wo diese ihn darüber informiert, das er der Hauptverdächtige bei dem Mordfall gilt. Fache hat vor Langdons erscheinen eine weitere Nachricht weggewischt.

"The Da Vinci Code" wie der Bestseller von Dan Brown im englischen Original heißt ist wohl eines der umstrittensten Bücher der letzten Jahre. Die Thesen & Behauptungen die der Autor in dem Buch aufstellt haben die katholische Kirche aufs schärfste erzürnt. Vielleicht einer der genialsten Schachzüge von Dan Brown. Denn so war gewährleistet das das Buch die größte Aufmerksamkeit bekommt. Die Verkaufszahlen geben ihm recht. "The Da Vinci Code - Sakrileg" hat sich weltweit schon über 50 Millionen mal verkauft. Verkaufszahlen an die nicht viele Bücher herankommen.
Mit Robert Langdon greift Dan Brown schon zum zweiten mal zu seine heute wohl populärste von ihm erschaffene Figur. Und das mit Erfolg. Denn der Einzelgänger und etwas mysteriös wirkende Harvard Professor passt perfekt in die Geschichte rund um eine Verschwörung hoch in die höchsten kirchlichen Kreise. Die Diskussion um Browns Theorien bezüglich des heiligen Grals, des Leben von Jesus Christus, die Rolle von Maria Magdalena in diesem & möglichen Nachfahren habe ich nie wirklich verstanden. Denn zu Beginn war auch von Seiten Browns nie die Rede von irgendwelchen Wahrheiten diesbezüglich. Hochgepuscht wurden soche Theorien von kirchlicher Seite. Das Dan Brown die Chance erkannte, sein Buch offensiver zu vermarkten und diese so auch nutzte kann man ihm nicht verdenken. Die Chance hätte ich auch genutzt. Wieso auch nicht.

Zum Inhalt werde ich hier keine weiteren Aussagen machen, da man das Buch einfach selber lesen muss.
Und versprochen man wird es nicht bereuen!
Auch sollte man auf keinen Fall den Film zuerst sehen. Der ist zwar gut, kommt an das Buch doch bei weitem nicht heran.

Mary Anne and the Haunted Bookstore (The Baby-Sitters Club Mystery #34)
This is a creepy, enthralling BSC mystery - probably my favorite out of all of them. Mary Anne goes to work at a new bookstore opening up in town, Poe & Co., as a babysitter for the kids while the dad does work. She soon discovers that strange things are happening - all with a Poe (Edgar Allen Poe) connection.

Very creepy, great for a stormy day. I read this on dark, stormy days in front of the fireplace and it gives me the willies. I love it!

In the end, with the help of the BSC, Mary Anne discovers the mystery of the bookstore.

I would recommend d this book to anyone who loves a good scare! I would give it ten stars if I could!!!

Astrid Lindgren: Lotta aus der Krachmacherstraße - TV-Serie
Der Film ist toll. Wer die Bücher von Lotta mag, wird die DVD lieben. Wir haben die DVD "Lotta - TV Serie" und "Lotta zieht um" gekauft und gern hätte ich in den Rezensionen den Hinweis gelesen, dass beide DVDs nahezu identisch sind.

Die DVD "Lotta zieht um" beinhaltet folgende Folgen der DVD "Lotta - TV Serie" in dieser Reihenfolge als kompletten Film :
- Umzug auf den Dachboden
- Beim Zahnarzt
- Ein Weihnachtsbaum muss her
- Schokoladenweihnachtsmänner zu Ostern

Bis auf einzelne zusätzliche Bildsequenzen (insgesamt ca. 2-3 Minuten), die keinen Mehrwert liefern, sind die beiden DVDs in den Geschichten identisch.

Wer also mehr "Lotta" möchte, dem empfehle ich die DVD "Lotta - TV Serie", denn hier erhält man zusätzlich noch die Geschichten:
- Ein richtiges Fahrrad
- Jonas fällt ins Wasser
- Bahn fahren ist lustig
Diese DVD ist sogar etwas günstiger und man kann "Lotta" für die Kinder in geeigneter Länge portionieren.
The Twilight Gospel: The Spiritual Roots of Stephenie Meyer's Vampire Saga
The Twilight Gospel: The Spiritual Roots of Stephenie Meyer's Vampire Saga
One of the most successful writing franchises in recent history is the `Twilight' series by Stephenie Meyer. And one of the most controversial writing franchises in recent history is the `Twilight' series by Stephenie Meyer... Many parents have kept their children from reading these books because of their supernatural content.

`The Twilight Gospel: The Spiritual Roots of Stephenie Meyer's Vampire Saga,' by Dave Roberts, takes a look at the spiritual implications of these books.

According to the back cover of the book:

With these powerful novels getting even more popular as the movies hit the cinemas, the call for a Christian response is strong. What values and ideas do Meyer's novels promote? What is good about them, and what deserves closer inspection?

The spirituality and worldview of the Twilight Saga are fascinating, but they do not sit easily with orthodox Christianity. This book carefully and graciously assesses what is praiseworthy and what is less so...

The central point of the book is to help teens (and their adults) discern what is excellent from what is unhealthy, helping to create robust, shrewd, and literate young adults.

I must admit that I have neither read any of the books nor seen any of the movies in this series. I am aware of the Team Edward versus Team Jacob debate (I would argue for the Team Edward side!), and I know there are vampires and werewolves involved. I also know that a lot of mothers are equally (or more) fanatical about these books and movies than their teens and preteens, but that's the extent of my knowledge. So I am a perfect candidate to read a book about this series; I am looking for additional information as to whether or not to pursue this entertainment.

Mr. Roberts describes the books this way:

They reflect on material aspiration, prejudice and stereotyping, family breakdown, self-control and human dignity. They invoke the Bible and one of the characters speaks of the perspective of the Creator. They explore ancient myths and mystical practices that are entering the mainstream culture of the West. (p. 13)

He proceeds to summarize each book in the series - `Twilight,' `New Moon,' `Eclipse,' `Breaking Dawn,' and `Midnight Sun' (currently unpublished).

Our author explains that he is not operating from a perspective of fear of popular culture, but instead from this place:

I want to write from a place of wisdom - not my own, but rather the wisdom I find throughout the Hebrew/Christian scriptures. In critiquing other worldviews, I desire to help people understand and respond and make good choices. I don't want to tell them what to believe about contemporary vampire culture! I do want to hold up the ideas in the Twilight Saga to scrutiny, and to help the reader to ask good, penetrating questions about those ideas. (p. 22)

Sounds logical and reasonable to me!

Mr. Roberts explores the history of the vampire in folklore, history, and entertainment; it was fascinating! He explains:

Creatures who escape from the grave and attack the living in order to satisfy their need for blood can be traced to the folklore of nations on all five continents. (p. 26)

With regard to the subject of sex in this series, Roberts states:

As you would expect from a Mormon writer, who made it clear in several interviews that sex scenes with explicit descriptions would not be part of the Twilight project, the books frown on the promotion of sexual activity outside the boundaries of a genuine relationship. (p. 91)

One of the most controversial aspects of the `Twilight Saga' is the occult element. I found that chapter (Chapter 6 - The Occult Sting in the Tale) to be fairly weak in not strongly stating the danger of dabbling in the occult as warned about in scripture.

In terms of a Christian worldview, Roberts states:

The books explore ideas of forgiveness, moral restraint and the personal goodness of several characters, while ignoring any idea that Jesus' life, death and resurrection might have a bearing on our relationship with God.... The God that we see in the Twilight Saga feels like the God of the Deists, who created the world, gave us moral frameworks and now leave us largely in peace to work out how we must live until he intervenes in history again. (p. 122)

Roberts summarizes the series this way:

Yet the Twilight Saga has much to admire. Apart from anything else, the books are an excellent read, and there is much in them that is wholesome and good. But the flaws are serious, and the series should be read with caution and thought.... Enjoy, but do not believe. (p. 155)

My verdict? I think I would read the books and watch the movies; I have enough spiritual discernment to separate the wheat from the chaff. God has given us a brain; we should use it! However, I would make sure to instruct young people to read and watch with care and caution, and watch the movies and read the books with them. I think far too many Christians run away from popular culture in fear instead of assessing it using Godly wisdom. They forbid their children from the content. Guess what happens when they finally get the freedom or opportunity to read or see them? They will consume them - perhaps with an uncritical, ungodly eye/viewpoint. I think this book is a valuable tool to help people consume these media critically, and I commend it to anyone who wants to assess this series with a Christian mindset.

(ゴシックロマン風の雰囲気や金髪の自分勝手なイケメン吸血鬼と黒髪緑目の主人公の因縁など)
ジョジョは実は剽窃が多くオリジナリティに欠けるところがあるし
夜明けのヴァンパイアが関係無いにしても既存作品とかぶっていて新しさは無かったということです
ジョナサンとディオは原作では宿敵にも関わらずユリイカ誌の作者インタビューではそれ以上の関係を匂わせたのも夜明けのヴァンパイア元ネタ疑惑を深めます

犬の扱いは一応は悪党ディオがやった悪いことで主人公のジョナサンが怒る展開になってはいますが
3部も結局は犬死んでるし動物の扱いがシリーズ通して悪く動物が苦手なのだろうと感じます
そこからはどうしても冷たい印象を受け、善や愛や正義などの部分は理屈で「ジャンプだから必要だ」と判断して書いていて
本心では愛だの正義だの興味ないのではないかと思ってしまう
熱さが嘘くさいのはジャンプの漫画としてはなんかスカッとしないものがあります

ホラーが好きで西洋のファッションや音楽や芸能人に憧れているのはガチなのかもしれませんし
絵は北斗の拳や男塾みたいな劇画の影響を受けているけどそれらとは違う耽美的な雰囲気もあるので(ディオなど)
同じ趣味なら面白いところもあるかも

パクリ指摘サイトでもイラスト構図の盗用や他の漫画や映画からのエピソード盗用など剽窃が指摘されてるというのに
なぜか大目に見られて続いているのはまるでディオのように悪運が強いとしか言いようがない
The Crime of Our Lives
The Crime of Our Lives
At age 77, Lawrence Block continues to churn out top-notch new novels (there will be a new one published next month from Hard Case Crime, in fact). He belongs to a small elite group of older writers whose legacy and popularity will almost certainly outlive him. Perhaps this is why over the last few years he has also busied himself republishing old pseudonymous works and collecting previously forgotten pieces—early short stories, essays, magazine articles, etc.—into new books. Or maybe he just wants to earn more money. Either way, this is good thing for his fans, because this stuff is very interesting.

Here Block gives us an easy-to-read collection of book introductions, freelance articles, and his “Murders on Memory Lane” column from Mystery Scene magazine. All of these pieces are centered on famous crime authors and their novels. Block is always imminently readable, his style sort of reminds me of a rambling conversation with an eccentric uncle.

He is profusely gracious and complimentary toward living writers, but he dishes the dirt on dead ones. For example, he tells an anecdote of Robert Ludlum throwing a tantrum when Robin Cook got a bigger advance than he did. There is a story of Evan Hunter a.k.a. Ed McBain writing sex novels under a pseudonym in order to keep a mistress on the side. There is even a funny anecdote concerning Lucille Ball’s rather demanding sexual proclivities.

The highlight was probably the essay on Scott Meredith, the now-infamous literary editor/agent who ran mail-order scams and collected unethical commissions on every story he bought. The analysis of the works of Robert Parker and Mickey Spillane were insightful and perhaps brutally honest. Charles Wileford sounds like the literary world’s most good-hearted psychopath.

As you might expect in a collection of this format, some observations show up more than once. There is also some overlap with stories already told in Block’s monthly Writer’s Digest columns, which were previously collected in a quartet of books-- Telling Lies for Fun & Profit, Spider Spin Me a Web, Liar’s Bible, and Liar’s Companion.

Still, this is rare, fun stuff if you are a fan of the genre. Some of my favorite quotes are listed below:

Fredric Brown: “When I read Murder Can Be Fun, I had a bottle of bourbon on the table and every time Brown’s hero took a drink, I had a snort myself. This is a hazardous undertaking when in the company of Brown’s characters… By the time the book was finished, so was I.”
Ross Macdonald: “It is one of the singular properties of his fiction that ten minutes after you have turned the last page, every detail of the plot vanishes forever from your mind.”

Jim Thompson: “He is surely an important writer and very much worth reading, but it helps to keep it in mind that the stuff ain’t Shakespeare.”

Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe: “Throughout, he alienates powerful people with his trademark wisecracks for no apparent reason, turns down fees whenever they’re offered to him, and goes through abrupt mood swings that make you wonder if he shouldn’t be on lithium.”

Donald E. Westlake’s Memory: “Don’s manuscript arrived, and we had dinner and put the kid to bed, and I started reading. And my wife went to bed, and I stayed up reading, and after a while I forgot I was having a heart attack, and just kept reading until I finished the book around dawn. And somewhere along the way I became aware that my friend Don… had just produced a great novel.”

Dashiel Hammett: “[He] took murder out of the Venetian vase and dropped it into the alley; he gave murder back to the kind of people who commit it for a reason…. He wrote scenes that seemed never to have been written before.”

On himself: “I don’t know that I had all that much interest in making a lot of money, not in my idealistic youth. I was more interested, I seem to recall, in making my parents proud of me, and in impressing girls and maybe, God willing, actually getting laid. But I certainly wanted to be able to support myself by writing, if only to avoid having to do anything else.”

It’s lovely to see a new Mr Men book. As all the others, this one is bright, colourful and fun. However, it seems to be short of the mark, compared to some of the earlier and more traditional Mr Men books. There is a lot going on in this one. Little Miss Somersault is on holiday in the mountains and she decides to hold a skiing competition. The Mr Men are not as good at skiing as Little Miss Somersault, and Mr Clumsy is possibly the worst. What will happen? Who will win?

In this sense, the story could be fun. But I feel it’s a bit bogged down in the descriptions, sentence structures and amount of words used. Sometimes, less is more, and it can get quite confusing trying to decipher who did what when, and how, and what happened next. Some of the sentences are rather long, not enough commas, and too long explanations of what's happening in each event that could lose the young reader. I think the text should have been pared back a bit, and the pictures tell the story. As ever, the pictures are lovely but the story itself lets the book down.
Demian (Spanish Edition)
Demian (Spanish Edition)
Hesse é um autor alemão ganhador do prêmio Nobel de literatura, cujo teor místico e esotérico de seus escritos foi bastante cultuado na contracultura dos anos sessenta, mas que está muito além de meros rótulos new age de autoajuda. De fato, ler seus livros em geral pode trazer (eu sei o que me trouxe) um senso de desorientação e desesperança, típico de quem se vê confrontado com questões essenciais que possa ter evitado a vida inteira ou que esteja prevendo ter que suportar pelo resto da vida – essa obra não foge à regra e é especialmente biográfica, nos mostrando desde a tenra idade as agruras do narrador, Sinclair, que tem sua vida mudada quando cruza com a misteriosa figura do colega de escola mais velho, Demian. Hesse em irá partir de um pressuposto humanista e romântico da humanidade e que por vezes se torna desesperado devido aos rumos da humanidade, às portas da Segunda Guerra Mundial, e este é o tema constante com o qual ele trabalha, a possibilidade da humanidade e o dilema da luta para crescer. Por outro lado ele dirá que alguns homens na verdade ainda são peixes, isto é, ainda não evoluíram. De certa forma, Hesse é o que alguns chamariam de humanista evolutivo, que acredita que a humanidade pode e deve melhorar. Mas isso são suposições. O que eu sei com certeza é que esta obra, que se lê em uma semana, com tranquilidade, é uma pérola, uma refinada obra de arte que você não vai querer perder. Se você já gostou dos livros mais famosos dele, como O lobo das Estepes, ou Sidarta, vai querer ler esse. Se não os leu, essa é uma ótima obra introdutória. De qualquer maneira, leia esse livro.
Eu gostei da edição digital desse livro, está bastante boa e tem algumas notas introdutórias.
The Red Hawk (The Moon Series Book 3)
The Red Hawk (The Moon Series Book 3)
While I don't think it is as bad as some reviewers have stated, it's not great. The descendants of human civilization have fought the invaders in a war of attrition for several hundred years. The humans now live like the Apaches or Sioux, mobile warrior tribes attacking the crumbling civilization of the invaders. The humans finally win and push in invaders into the sea. Not great but OK.

USAOPOLY Harry Potter: Hogwarts Battle - The Charms and Potions Expansion/Second Expansion to Harry Potter Deckbuilding Game/Featuring New Abilities & Cards/Officially Licensed Harry Potter Game
NOTE: This is an expansion - you need the base game. It is optional whether or not you also have the prior expansion.

We pre-ordered this back in July, got it yesterday and immediately played. The base game was one of our favorites and we loved the Monster Box of Monsters expansion. For our first game, we played Box 1 of this set, combined with all 7 years of the base game and all 4 boxes of the Monsters expansion. I don't know if we got lucky or are "just that good", but we crushed it - in a 3 player game, we made it through with zero stuns and without losing the first location. (In fact, at the instant we won, we had no marks on the location and were all at 10 health, so I guess that's as decisive a win as possible.) That said, it was still a lot of fun and it didn't feel too easy, though I am hoping that the challenge picks up a bit with Box 2. The Box 1 addition of "charms" is a nice touch, particularly making the specific charm dependent on the character's health level. After winning, we opened Box 2 and that looks like a neat game mechanic to add.

I will echo another reviewer's comment - the production is a little off in that the cards from this set are ever so slightly shorter than the cards from the other sets. It's noticeable when you shuffle and have the draw piles. I wouldn't gamble for money with cards this mismatched, but honestly, unless you're trying to study a draw pile AND have an opinion about the relative preference for a new card vs an old size card, it doesn't really matter, so I didn't ding them a star for it.

Here's hoping that we'll get yet another expansion in the future and, in the meantime, that boxes 2-4 are as much fun to play.
Anthills of the Savannah
Anthills of the Savannah
Chinua Achebe has ample own experience on the topic writing about - namely how do dictatorships develop - and does a spectacular job of describing the subtle dynamics that will inexorably draw people together and subsequently apart in such a scenario. Set in a fictional African state of Kangan and told through various narrators - all of whom used to belong to a tightly knit group of friends before one of them became His Excellency - it presents a wonderful take on power, delusion and the mechanics of third world autocratic governments.

The story revolves around Chris (commissioner for information), Ikem (editor of the most prominent newspaper in the country), Beatrice (Chris' girlfriend and an employee at the ministry of finance) and finally Sam (His Excellency) - all UK educated, all friends at some point in time - and their deteriorating relationship. The inexorable changes result from Sam slowly but surely losing his grip on reality and spiralling into self delusion. At the same time the country is rapidly approaching truly disruptive change in a development that is as terrible, as it is inexorable.

Modelled on oil boom Nigeria, it is probably one of the more prominent of Achebe's works. Written much later than his early fiction (1987), it loses none of the vitality of works such as 
LEGO Harry Potter The Burrows 4840
LEGO Harry Potter The Burrows 4840
This had so much detail in all the features, a key by each door, a swivel pot. But the most exciting thing my grandson liked was the light brick. He said it was the rarest piece, not in any of his many kits. The only two reasons I didn't rate this five stars was the two parts to each section kept coming apart and had to be rebuilt. There was only one small part holding them together and it wasn't enough. We finally put a spare brick across them to stabilize it until it had more pieces installed. The second reason was that Fang was not included. It had two owls and three small spiders that we would swap for Fang. All in all, this is a great kit and we have enjoyed putting it together.

With the adventures of Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling singlehandedly saved the publishing industry. It is impossible to overstate the impact these books had on both child and adult readers. The anticipation for the next sequel! The midnight release parties! While you missed all that excitement, you now have the joys of being able to read all the books at once.

Please do read the books; don’t just watch the movies.

PARENTS BEWARE: As Harry Potter ages, the subject matter grows more mature. J.K. Rowling was quite clear that she was not writing for young children. These books grow increasingly more intense. Exercise caution.

Math Workbook Grade 1 Grade 2 Ages 6-8 Addition and Subtraction (Math Step-By-step)
I loved the visual representation of the Lego bricks to help my daughter grasp the concept of adding more concretely. The step by step strategies are easy and useful to understand how to solve subtraction problems. Once she realized the format, she wanted to do this all on her own! Just what I needed!

She also needed a workbook for practicing CogAT tests - they can be difficult to find, and this works perfectly! The pages are engaging and fun to work through.

Super easy to use and the format with coloring and word search is amazing!!

LEGO(R) Classic Creative Supplement Bright (10694)
Bright colours and lots of interesting shapes. This box of Lego is cheap for the number of hours you can spend being creative with the plain blocks. This box was more appealing than others due to the unusual colours included, alongside see-through bricks. It comes with a little booklet of ideas for things to make - would be quite useful for younger Lego users as inspiration for designs. Would recommend to anyone wanting a basic pack of Lego bricks that have a slight edge compared to regular bricks.

UniBond Speed Seal Sealant, Fast Drying White Silicone Sealant, Water- & Mould-Resistant Bathroom Sealant, Bath Sealant for Hygienic Seals, 1x291g Cartridge
I got this product to re-seal a leaky joint on a cistern pipe. This means the cistern needs to be drained to get it done. I didn't want the toilet out of action for 24 h, the time needed for regular silicon sealant to set. Instead, I thought I'd pay more to get a product that would do the job in one hour.
Nowhere in the description does it tell you, but this product actually takes 24h to set. It's on the tube itself. The "one hour" thing is for "indirect water contact" only. I've never heard a shower called THAT. This suggests that it's not even dry enough for an actual shower, just the splashes that occurs whilst showering? Even if I was just sealing a shower, I certainly wouldn't risk anything near the finish until fully dry. Why take the chance? So I spent nearly 4 times as much as for regular silicon for the same actual drying time. Round of applause, Unibond, no thanks.

 This UV sterilizer is something I'll always have on hand. It ssnitizes and does so in roughly five minutes or so. There's also a spot to add essential oils in order to use the aromatherapy function.
There's absolutely nothing to using this. You simply insert whatever it is you want to sanitize, I did my rings today and they're sparkly and beautiful again. The light has a countdown function which lets you know when you're 25, 50, 75, and 100 percent complete. The aromatherapy function can be used as you wish. The size will fit almost all (if not all) smart phones. There is no noise either except when it starts. I'd buy this again!

This is a great addition for anyone who does meetings, live streaming and online gaming on the computer. The mic can get really close to you, without getting in the way or taking up valuable desktop space where it counts. It mounds to your desk with a very sturdy clamp that you can tighten, so it fits just about any normal sized desk. The whole frame is metal, with the arms able to swivel and bend to get the mic towards you at the perfect angle. I really appreciate the quality and craftsmanship of the frame, as this is something that I move around a lot, depending on what I'm doing that day. I like that the connection points are metal, and that the base for the microphone is suspended by some thick elastic. This is so any sudden jarring of the microphone would not cause too much of a sudden movement and introduce unwanted noise/effects. The mic itself is solid and built with the same quality. I chose this model because its not too expensive, but also because the microphone has a level knob, so you can control the sound input level. There is also a headphone jack that I use to monitor what I'm saying to ensure it comes out exactly how it was intended. There is also a mute switch thats lit to indicate mute or not mute. This is important as I don't always want others to hear everything from my side. The wind blocker is a great addition, but if its too much, the mic also has a foam cover that you can slip over it. So far, I'm pretty happy with this. Everyone that I've chatted with online have been able to hear me crystal clear, with no distortion. If anyone says I'm a little low, I just crank up the level input knob. Its so easy to use and connects via USB connection. It also looks great, and gives me "gamer" street cred :)
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.

There was a really good deal going on today, and the first thing this morning I asked Rosseta if life time meant everything was lifetime, or did that only count for the updates. I was told by other people that have bought this lifetime guarantee before, and after 12 months there subscription was void unless you purchased another. I asked if they would give me details and they refuse to answer my questions,which tells me that it does expire in 12 months. I'm now going to buy Babbel to learn Spanish.

KaiMeng Office High Back Leather Computer Ergonomic Height Adjustable Racing Game Desk Executive Conference Task Chair, 19.5" x 20.1" x 44.2", Red
Decent chair overall. Easy to assemble except that one of the screw wells was slightly too small for the included screws, so it could only go in about 30% of the way. Will have to see how that affects durability over time. The angle of the back is also kind of awkward; it's not terribly uncomfortable but it's too close to a 90% angle with the seat. I would prefer something reclined another 10 to 15 degrees. You can lean back though, so it's not a terrible issue. Other than that it's comfortable. The seat and back are not that soft; I find some office chairs have way too much give for me and this one doesn't have that problem. If the screws all fit perfectly and the back was angled better this would be an amazing value for the price (I paid around $70); as it is it's still decent. Not sure how durable it is yet; will add information on that later if it breaks unexpectedly.

Bought instant pot last month but thought that I needed to buy accessories for cooking on it. Came across this product and decided to give it a try.

Pros:
It includes numerous of accessories that you can really use on the instant pot, im amaze that it includes the time chart for each recipe/meat etc.
The color is nice, the quality is okay.
They included rubber micromitt which makes it a lot helpful whenever I use my IP.
It is actually a whole package in 1.
I like all the egg accessories included here.

Con:
I thought the accessories are big, but a little frustrated that the spring from pan is a little small, (well, just fits right on my 6-qt I.P)

Conclusion:
I still recommend this product inspite on my con reason, just make sure to take time in reading the dimensions well to avoid disappointments. it’s still worth the money compared to other products of the same purpose. Hope they make more colors in the future.
I can use them everyday and will be able to provide my family delicious meals made with love.
