Warren Buffett's Ground Rules: Words of Wisdom from the Partnership Letters of the World's Greatest Investor
Warren Buffett's Ground Rules: Words of Wisdom from the Partnership Letters of the World's Greatest Investor
The 1st 5 chapters were almost worthless but the rest of the book more than made up for it.

The discussion of Generals, Workouts & Controls offers a nice introduction to value investing.

The author walks you through how Buffett took what he learned under Ben Graham & put his own stamp on it.

You'll learn how he ran the Buffett Partnership & subsequently made the transition to more qualitative investments which formed the Berkshire Hathaway.of today.

I'd recommend reading Graham's "Intelligent Investor" & Phillip Fushers "Common Stocks & Uncommon Profits" 1st & although there's no heavy math, you should probably understand how to read a balance sheet & income/cash flow statements.

After "Ground Rules" I recommend reading the full prtnership letters & "Berkshire Letters to Shareholders" for a more fully formed view of what WEB has done, followed by Graham & Dodd "Security Analysis" after which you should be analytically & temperamentally able of trying your hand at creating your own Berkshire.

Disclaimer: the wit & wisdom WEB has exhibited throughout his carreer are replicable by many but the temperament needed to execute is IMHO the most important factor in obtaining above average results. If you ain't disciplined & patient, your results will vary...
To Pixar and Beyond: My Unlikely Journey with Steve Jobs to Make Entertainment History
To Pixar and Beyond: My Unlikely Journey with Steve Jobs to Make Entertainment History
An awesome business book written by the brilliant Lawrence Levy, who served as CFO of Pixar, giving an inside peek into the transformative journey of Pixar from a confused state and an uncertain future with $50 million in negative; into an outstanding storytelling creative studio making multi-billion dollars via sales of movie tickets, merchandising, DVD sales etc.

Steve Jobs spotted Lawrence in a magazine and kept him in records. A few years later he calls Lawrence and invites him to visit Pixar and consider joining Pixar to help hone the strategy, run the business and make it public. And that's where the story begins and progresses on how Steve Jobs, Ed Catmull, John Lasseter, Lawrence Levy and team and associates of Pixar made the necessary strategic and creative choices in the background of several challenges and survival pressures.

This is a must read for those who have loved the work of Pixar, the various movies and characters they built, the toys, fish, monsters, cars superheroes. And for those who have not watched Pixar movies, they will love the book too as the author takes us through a vivid journey of his various interactions with Steve Jobs and team that led to one of Hollywood's greatest success story.

Entrepreneurs and Professionals will cherish this book for the multiple snippets and insights it offers in wide areas such as

+ Effective Collaboration
+ Smart Negotiation and Leveraging Strengths
+ Fighting for injustice done to team and giving them due respect and credit
+ Dealing with a Tough Boss like Steve Jobs
+ Reflecting on Life's Purpose to plan the future direction

+ Attracting and Retaining Talent
+ Creativity Before Business, Betting on the Creative Talent in spite of the risks
+ Dealing with Investment Bankers
+ Business Models of the Entertainment Industry
+ Leadership

I loved the book and plan to read it again, and I bet you will like this well chronicled journey of Pixar's struggles and success. Thank you Lawrence Levy for sharing this fascinating story.
George Washington's Socks (Time Travel Adventure)
George Washington's Socks (Time Travel Adventure)
This was a Christmas present for my 7-year-old who loves reading about history. He loves the Magic Tree House and I Survived series. I chose this one because he enjoys reading about the Revolutionary War. He decided that instead of reading it by himself (He's a really good reader for a second grader!), he wanted me to read a chapter or two aloud each night. That was fine with me because I love reading to him and his 5-year-old brother. The story started off really well--some boys starting an adventure club. Both boys enjoyed it. There is obviously a time-travel component, and the chapters dealing with how the kids traveled back in time via an old rowboat kind of frightened both boys. Once we got past that part, they really got into the story. The boys (and one's little sister) end up with George Washington crossing the Delaware River. Through several events, the kids get separated, meet interesting people, wonder how they'll get back home, etc. We have only read about 3/4 of the book, and we are all enjoying the adventure. However, I will caution you that there are some words in this book that I don't feel are appropriate for a children's book. In fact, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw them as I was reading ahead. Honestly, that kind of ruined the book for me. Luckily, since I'm reading it aloud, I can skip over or change certain words instead of saying them. Also, this is a book about war, and some of the descriptions of injuries, wounds, and illnesses are a bit more graphic than I would have liked. It's a really interesting story that keeps your attention, but I don't think I would want my children reading it independently, even if they were a little older. Also, as a former elementary school teacher, I wouldn't recommend it as a read-aloud selection unless you want to read it ahead of time and edit out inappropriate material. As much as the boys and I like the story itself, I must be honest: I probably would not have purchased the book if I had known it contained profanity--even a little. Maybe I'm naive, but I didn't expect books written for children (even somewhat older children) to contain "bad" words. They grow up so fast as it is. We'll finish the book because we do like the story and want to see how it turns out. I just wish I had gotten a "heads up" before we got interested in it.

ILOVETOOL 2.0mm Diamond Jewelry Drill Bits Carving Bur Tools for Stone Pack of 30Pcs
I drill holes in shells to make wind chimes and I love making them! I used to only buy the Drimmel brand bits. I could only do 40 shells or so before the Drimmel bits would give out. I got these for their price and am happily surprised! These bits are good and pointy, and they go though the shell nicely at first. After 10 shells the tip would break but I could keep going for a while after that with the now less pointy bit. When it starts struggling you get a nice sharp new one. All in all cheaper than brand name. These bits are a good value for my needs. If you’re reading this and plan to drill shells, make sure to use water. Put a sponge in a shallow pie dish filled with crushed ice and water. Drill the shell on the sponge and as you drill stick the bit in the sponge to keep it cool. You can even use a bit of water on the drill site. It’s fun to drill the holes too. Happy shell crafting!

Captain America Shield (Blue/Maroon)
I got this as part of an early birthday gift for my boyfriend and he really loved it. Like usual Blender Bottle products, it’s sturdy and made well, just a little pricey due to the Marvel design. I like that the handle loop thing is removable. I want one of these for myself but I would prefer if the top was more of a press-down/snap style rather than twist off for convenience (I foresee myself dropping it and spilling on myself in the car lol).
Marvel Legends Series 6-inch Deadpool 2
Marvel Legends Series 6-inch Deadpool 2
Let's be honest -- if you collect Marvel Legends, you pretty much know what you're getting here. I wasn't expecting the lateral arm movement (the backpack piece hid that) and the Madcap head is a great inclusion (now I need to find a body for that), but everything else is pretty standard stuff from the line. That said, while I was mainly interested in the Sauron tail, I was surprised to find that I actually like this Deadpool a lot! It's just a fun figure, and it doesn't look like another retread/update of the standard costume. And if you don't like it and aren't jazzed about using the Madcap head on this body, the figure's also a nice base for an easy Morph custom.

XOFOAO Doctor Strange Necklace Eye of Agamotto Costume Prop Stone Pendant with Sling Ring
This product is one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen. The actual eye is about the size of the top of a spoon. The rope the connected it broke apart almost immediately after I opened it up. I couldn’t even get it around my head. It looked like it could fit a baby. The only good thing about this product is the sling ring. It actually fit and looked pretty decent. I would not recommend this to anyone.
Tate's Bake Shop Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, 7 oz
Tate's Bake Shop Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies, 7 oz
I like chocolate chip cookies. My usual problem with any cookie is that they are too sweet. And the soft cookies are just terrible because besides being too sweet they taste like chemicals.

These cookies are good ... not too sweet and they don't load you down with too many chocolate chips. Don't get me wrong... I love chocolate. however, I also love the taste of buttery cookies.

My only complaint is the soy. Therefore I don't eat very many. Unless fermented (like in miso soup or soy sauce) soy is a health hazard. It causes breast cancer, stunted growth in children, men to develop breasts, etc. Google 'soyalert' and read the articles by the Weston A. Price Foundation. Unfortunately, soy is in practically everything. Trying to find food without it is like trying to purchase something not made in China!

So, unless I have time to make cookies these are my first choice. The best I've found so far!
Irish Rose (Irish Hearts Book 2)
Irish Rose (Irish Hearts Book 2)
This was the second part of a trilogy, and written back in the 80's I believe, which explains some of the actions of the characters. Even though the H could be an unbelievable ass at times, I enjoyed the story very much. The author writes very well as everyone knows and the combination of an Irish h and a stubborn, alpha H was irresistible.
Westward the Tide: A Novel
Westward the Tide: A Novel
I read a lot of books and have always liked the style of louis l'amour,he can paint a picture in words that make you feel that you are actualy back in the wild west, his characters are true to life and very believable, also he portrays people with real emotions and fear's, not all his characters are fearless as in some western novels, he doe's not fall into the trap of gun fights all the time like some western Authors, he portrays characteristics and mannerisms that build a picture of the person he is writing about, and I would recommend his work to anybody who wants to try a western novel as i feel that there is nobody better. only Zane Grey comes a close 2nd in my mind but that is a personal thing, so go on try any of his western books you might be surprised?. 5 STARS

Der Gandolfo-Anschlag: Roman (German Edition)
....das ist das was mir einfällt um dieses buch mit einem wort zu beschreiben.
alle, auch wenn sie total durchgeknallt sind, sind sympathisch.
der verrückte army general, dem von seiner regierung böse mitgespielt wird, ist es. auch das weichei von rechtsanwalt, der vom verrückten general quasi zwangsverpflichtet wird bei einer komplett irren entführungsaktion mitzuwirken, ist es. am aller sympathischsten ist aber der "dicke mann" (mehr kann ich nicht schreiben). vor lauter sympathie weiss man nicht mehr zu wem man helfen soll....
darüber hinaus geht das buch aber leider nicht. es hat mich weder gefesselt noch kam spannung auf, auch der humorfaktor hat sich bei mir auf eine handvoll lacher bzw. schmunzler beschränkt.
alles in allem ein sympathischen, leicht zu lesendes buch mit einer sympathischen story und sympathischen protagonisten.
Wildfire
Wildfire
I rarely rate a book five stars, but this classic of the west earned my highest rating. Not only that, Wildfire is one of the very best books I have ever read. Zane Grey's description of this wonderful part of the country along with his character development was 'spot on'. He made it easy to transfer the written word to the mind's eye with his detailed portrayal of all aspects of the landscape, the characters and - of course - the horses. Speaking of which I certainly can relate to the indomitable spirit of Wildfire having spent a fair amount of time around both show horses and feral horses. A spirited horse would most certainly try with all its spirit and lifeblood to escape capture and domestication. In this case, even though Wildfire was caught and trained (somewhat) he never really abandoned his wild, majestic inner core. It was as though he tolerated his captors after having been hounded for hundreds of miles and was finally subdued - but never conquered - by them.
This book is really about Wildfire first and foremost, and secondly about the people, good and bad, who came in contact with him. That part of the book is almost a subplot, but is still very complete and well defined.
I highly recommend this wholesome book for any person, young or old, man or woman, boy or girl interested in how spirit manifests itself and how a feral creature can teach us all about courage and persistence.
The Border Legion
The Border Legion
After having recently finished "30,000 on the Hoof," this one was a little bit of a disappointment. Still 3 stars because it is Zane Grey, and the writing is terrific (for the period.)

Here we have the "damsel-in-distress" who is taken in by a bandit. But he's not so bad. Or is he? Oh, he's really bad, and I'm scared. Yes, but today he seems pretty clean; he didn't take advantage of me, like he wanted to. But the other guy over there is REALLY bad. My captor? Not so much. All right, today he's mean and I want to escape. Oh look! Here's my hometown sweetheart! It is he whom I followed in the first place; and this brilliant idea got me into this mess. All right, I'll hide out for a while, then we'll get married and we can escape. Except the bad guys are really kind of nice in a way and my sweetheart is in with them, so we have to be careful....

One does not get gratuitous blood and violence with Zane Grey. Although the later scenes are a little intense, I think this is one of those books where he could have skimped a little on the hostage theme and ended it with a bit more hot lead and cordite. But it does not take away from the fact that this was a very good story, well told, and a decent read.

Just not my favorite.

Sullo sfondo dei rapporti politico/economici tra Usa e Giappone negli anni 80/90, una bella storia thriller che coinvolge l'alta società.
Non ci sono smartphone e ci sono ancora le videocassette.
Difficile indagare per un poliziotto quando è in gioco il suo futuro e la sua sicurezza.
In questa storia l'omicidio è uno strumento per ricattare un politico.
E la storia è sempre attuale perché il ricatto è sempre esistito in politica

Pippi Longstocking, Pippi Goes On Board, Pippi in the South Seas
Pippi Longstocking, Pippi Goes On Board, Pippi in the South Seas
Pippi Longstocking is one of the more famous characters of the children's author Astrid Lindgren. She is an independent, tomboy-type-gal who lost her mother at a very young age and was separated from her father - a captain who became lost at sea. Fortunately, thanks to her time with him, she has travelled far and wide and acquired an incredible strength. She moves into a typical Swedish village and together with her new friends Tommy and Annika, gives that world a touch of childlike magic.

She is very fond of telling absurd stories of her travels, spontaneous activities, feats of strength, especially righting wrongs and the rest. This is all tempered with a healthy disdain for authority and a lack of "etiquette" - when she decides to start school, she tells her teacher she wants to be a pirate AND a lady when she grows up.

Eventually, she visits her father on an island where he has turned out to have become the king, and treats Tommy, Annika and the whole class to a great host of adventures.

Not as amusing as some other Lindgren characters, Pippi is still a good role-model in terms of being the rough girl with the heart of gold. The stories are still very playful and fun. A good read for children from a young age (like most Lindgren books).

The Story of the Stone, or The Dream of the Red Chamber, Vol. 5: The Dreamer Wakes
The Story of the Stone, or The Dream of the Red Chamber, Vol. 5: The Dreamer Wakes
The Story of the Stone is one of the "Four Classic Chinese Novels." The value to the Western reader is that it provides great insight into the daily lives and culture of the Chinese Nobility in the 18th Century. Religion, which had been present but not prominent in the first four volumes of the Story of the Stone, becomes the driving force in the narrative in the second half of Volume 5.

The problem for the Western reader is trying to figure out what to mark the Story of the Stone against. The first three volumes seem to be a Proustian tribute to a golden age of poetry experienced by the Wang-Jias a prominent clan of nobles who all live together in a huge compound. Volume four is Hubris as the family cut off from the world commit steadily more wicked and cruel actions leaving the floor strewn with the corpses of bullied servants, beaten concubines and innocent commoners. Volume Five starts out as Nemesis. Justice strikes. The bureaucracy discovers that two members of the family are guilty of fraud and lone-sharking. The police raid the Wang-Jia compound and confiscate most of the valuables they can find. Edicts then strip them of their estates.

The Wang-Jias try to rally. They take stock and discover they are almost broke. They have been living beyond their means. Their stewards have been embezzling from them and their house servants have been constantly pilfering. Unfortunately, once they realize what their situation is, they are unable to take effective action. The women in the family were masters at bullying the maids and concubines but are totally incapable of dealing with their true problems. The extravagance continues.

The men are simply witless. The two male members of the family implicated in the corruption are banished to Mongolia while the honest ones who stay behind simply wring their hands. Their influence is gone. At the end of Volume 4, they had had enough influence to prevent one of their family members who had murdered an innocent bartender in a drunken rage from being sentenced. In Volume 5, the case is re-opened. A concubine had been murdered in Volume 4. The police decide to investigate in Volume 5.

Bao-Yu the hero who had been born with a magic jade talisman in his mouth and of whom great things had been expected proves to be a complete dolt. He moons over woman that he was not allowed to marry and refuses to consummate his marriage with the bride that his family had selected for him.

The Wang-Jias seem to be at the nadir of their fortunes like Job when a mysterious monk arrives with the Bao-Yu's missing Jade Talisman. Bao-Yu leaves with the monk to visit the land of the dead. He returns without his talisman but has a sense of purpose. He consummates his marriage and then starts studying for the civil service examinations.

Bao-Yu performs brilliantly on the exams. The emperor reads his composition which prompts him to re-consider the judgements against the family. The murderer is pardoned. The two fraudsters are allowed to return from exile and the family's estates are restored to them.

Bao-Yu then disappears. A family member meets another phantom-monk who explains that Bao-Yu had been the reincarnation of a Buddha immortal who had wanted to experience human tribulation. Having restored the family fortunes through his remarkable performance on the exam and having fathered a male heir for the Wang-Jias, he no longer had anything to do with the living and so his family would never seen him until again until the afterlife. The phantom-monk then warns the Wang-Jias that they lost everything through wickedness and that they would never fully recover what they had lost unless they practiced virtue. Finally the phantom-monk explains to them that the physical world is not real. Only the spirit world is real.

Thus the interminably long Story of the Stone finishes with a flourish. I will know look for some Chinese friends to explain to me what I missed which is presumably quite considerable.

Do your homework before launching into this massive work.
Mystery Classics V.8: Sherlock Holmes
Mystery Classics V.8: Sherlock Holmes
Whilst watching any of the films of this era remember, movie film production was still in its infancy. Most films of this ilk were meant to be billed as Second or even Third features. Transatlantic quota agreements between Britain and The States were rigorously enforced and so a lot of films that wouldn't necessarily entertain some people got an undeserved airing in Theatres across both sides of "The Pond." "Mystery Classics" include some such worthless film stock but they also have little gems of entertainment that for all their age, time has not eaten away their worth to the industry or to the thrill of entertainment value to us oh so sophisticated beings of the "New Millennium." Take them in context, age and at face value and you shall be pleasantly entertained as our Fathers and Forefathers were in times gone by. Peter Pan KPES.

August Noir: Dallas 1940 (Dallas Noir Book 1)
AS A BETA READER, I RECEIVED A FREE ADVANCE COPY OF THE BOOK IN EXCHANGE FOR AN UNBIASED REVIEW.
This is a simple, fun read - one of those books you pickup when you want to escape for a hour or two.
The book is not polished but one that makes you ask the question as you move through it - what next...
The characters are developed but not too deeply - reminds me of one of those books in a series - where the first book is simple and as each successive book is released the characters become deep and involved.
There is a lot of room for expansion of this book into a fun series with the two main characters...
I hope the author creates a series.

I recommend the book for those who want a fun quick read when life is so full of stuff that you just want to escape into a simpler world of mystery.
LEGO Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Expecto Patronum 75945 Building Kit (121 Pieces)
LEGO Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Expecto Patronum 75945 Building Kit (121 Pieces)
This lego set recreates the iconic Expecto Patronum scene from The Prisoner of Azkaban. Most of the builds are two trees from the forbidden forest. These trees look like props from a theater production because from the front they look great but from the back, they don’t. They look very two dimensional and I would have liked for them to have a cylindrical shape so they wouldn’t look too flat. The trees also look short when compared to the stag Patronus. One of the trees has a stud shooter that can shoot out a glittering dish piece that is supposed to represent the Expecto Patronum spell. In the movie, the spell looked much bigger and impressive but the play feature still gets the point across. There’s also a build of a shore and rocks that Sirius Black can rest on. I would have liked it if there was more land area but there is still enough for figures to stand on. Overall this set is a very minimized version of the scene and it would have been great if more pieces were included to give the builds more detail but I’m sure the lego designers were trying to keep the set within a certain budget.
The Minifigure selection is great, even if there are no exclusive Minifigures, and fit the scene that is recreated. Sirius Black has an open collar that shows his tattoos. The tattoos aren’t proportional to those seen in the movie, but I think that was done so they could be more noticeable. Lego has a problem with printing skin tones opaque enough and this figure is no exception. The set includes a bland new stag piece that looks magnificent. The piece is molded in hard translucent plastic with silver glitter except for the antlers which are soft plastic and have no glitter. If you are a fan of this scene or want the stag Patronus I would recommend the set but if not I think you can skip this set since there are other ways to get the figures.

The Noble Collection 27363 Harry Potter Collectible, Multi Coloured
Granddaughter recently got into Harry Potter and is collecting everything connected with it. This was a top favourite so I ordered as a treat. She was blown away with it. It’s beautifully packaged & I’m glad I forked out the extra for the one in the presentation box as it’s a great place to safely store it. It has a tiny stand but I think that’s asking for trouble as she’s only 9 and not exactly careful with most things. It’s fairly expensive for what it is but it’s really well designed & made & it was worth it to see her so joyful 😁

Superluxe Clothing Hogwarts Castle Mens Womens Kids Unisex Funny Wizarding World T-Shirt
This shirt is awesome. When it arrived it had a strong smell from the color die so I washed it right away (with a color catching cloth) and the smell came right out in the wash. It’s extremely soft and held up great during our 12 sweaty hours in a theme park in the middle of summer. I was half expecting it to bleed a little onto my skin since it smelled so strongly of die when it first got there and since it was such a hot day but it didn’t. It says it’s for men but I figured it was unisex and ordered it anyway and it was surprisingly quite flattering for a T-shirt.

エリーのアトリエから途中いくつかできなかったタイトルもありましたがずっと長年好きなシリーズの最新作。
そもそもトリダモノ先生のイラストが好きすぎて壁紙にしていたくらいだったので今回の起用は本当に嬉しかったです。

今作のレビューはひとことで言うなら「みんなが楽しめる名作」です。

いたるところに今までのシリーズになかった改善点があり、かと言って改善し過ぎてゲーム体験を損なうことがないようにとの配慮も絶妙でした。
例えば移動。最初こそ地道に歩かなければならず面倒ですがMAP把握するころにはワープポイントが活用できるようになりさらに物語を進めると…。しかも従来の作品だと特定のアイテムを作らなければ解禁されないことが多いシステムだったのにイベント進行で解禁されるようになったのは非常によかったと思います。ゲームのメインである調合システムに関しても同様で、一通り慣れてきたころに新システムが追加されて、また慣れてきたと思ったら追加されて、と終盤までワクワクを持続させてくれました。戦闘に関しても自分はノーマルで遊びましたがアイテムをしっかり作れば楽に敵を倒せる難易度に調整されていて戦闘システム自体ポコポコ敵を殴って技をぶっぱなす!という感じなので動かすのが楽しくだれることはありませんでした。戦闘系のクエストがそれを支えてくれた気がします。また仲間が多すぎないのも、固定メンバーなのもみんなを把握できていい。もっと厳しい戦闘が欲しい人向けのハードモードもあるしクリア後限定の難易度追加もあり。強くてニューゲームもクリア後やりこみもあるので、自分は進行に合わせてじっくり採取や調合を楽しみましたがサクッとクリアしてからがライザのアトリエと考えてもいいのかもしれませんね。

ストーリーもあくまで主人公の等身大の視点と心情を大事にした展開で、主人公自身が考えて行動する様は個人的には非常に好みのものでした。

惜しむらくは仕事から帰ったら寝る間も惜しんで毎日のめり込んでプレイしてしまったのでクリア後も「まだまだ遊んでいたかった…」と思ってしまったことです。やりこみ要素や強くてニューゲームとかじゃなくてもっとストーリーをやっていたかったというか。まぁそこはDLCに期待したいですね。

結果として初めてアトリエシリーズをやる人も、今までやってきた人も楽しめる作品になっていたと思います。

ぜひとも未プレイの人は買って遊んでみてください!

Tom Clancy's Duty and Honour
Tom Clancy's Duty and Honour
As an avid reader of every Jack Ryan, John Clark book and film over the years I was very disappointed with this book.
In this episode of the genre, Blackwood has dropped the baton passed on by Tom Clancy.
I tend to stick to Non Fiction nowadays but whenever a book in this series pops up I devour it readily.
This book was short on substance and felt a bit like the author was phoning it in.
Suddenly Jack Junior has been transformed into a second class Jason Bourne type character and through most of the book I kept hoping he would contact other members of the Campus so that we could have some character depth in the book.
Initially someone has an attempt on Jacks life and not knowing why he decides not to contact his team but just to go solo.
I hope the book didn’t take long to write or it begs the question why didn’t he take the time to write a better book?
If this was a normal commodity i would have taken it back to the shop for a refund.

Harry Potter Letter Shaped Pencil Case, Multi, AS Described
The pencil case has been made from a plastic which holds creases, so since it came flat packed in the post, it now has two big creases down the front and back which can't be removed. This wasn't cheap for the simple style of pencil case that it is and it is a gift so I'm really disappointed. I would have expected more with it being an official Harry potter product. I wouldn't buy it again.

Mixed Coffee Set of 3 cloths (one of each design) Swedish Dishcloths | ECO Friendly Absorbent Cleaning Cloth | Reusable Cleaning Wipes
I was actually shopping under "kitchen towels" trying to find a coffee themed design and came across these. They were highly rated so I bought them. They were way smaller than expected, and not even close to what I really wanted. I kept them anyways. They are three small, thin squares of dried cloth. They are super absorbent, durable for scrubbing any surface and good as a paper tower replacement, as previous reviews said. They dry back into their small square form, unlike regular kitchen towels. And they do not dry flat - if that matters to you. Although not what I had wanted when I started my shopping trip, they are an nicely unexpected cleaning product.

Build quality is very flimsy. I was planning to buy more of these but then I ended up buying 5 USd floor lamps from walmart. You have to be very careful while building balloon columns as the pieces keep coming off. Also once done, you can't move it from one place to another as the piece might come off and you end up spending more time putting it together

IDAODAN Balloon Arch Kit,Balloon Stand With Water Base,Adjustable 9FT Tall & 10Ft Wide,50Pcs Balloon Clips,Manual Pump Balloon Knotter-For Wedding Birthday Party Supplies Decorations
Bought it for my daughter's birthday decorations. Due to the pandemic, no parties will happen so I thought of decorating the front yard. It comes with all I needed to make the arch. I had done arch in the past but this set has better tools to make a perfect arch. the pipes are sturdy and the balloon clips helps to make a flower of five balloons. I was used to of making four balloon flower but five is definitely better than 4. The knotting tool helps to eliminate the fatigue of knotting balloons. I didn't use this pump instead I used tire inflator , it was much easy. I was able to make the arch stand in the grass as the base uses water stand instead of digging it in the ground. Water base was sturdy enough to keep the arch stand even in the wind. Little pricey but worth the look and feel it gave to my decorations.

They are not overly comfortable, but they get the job done and are not terrible.

My first pair lasted...period. Only got a new one when I did because my employer pays $75 towards a new pair every year so...why wouldn't I?

I am a truck driver who both drives and spends quite a bit of time unloading and the toes in these boots certainly have saved me quite a bit of pain and actually become useful for kicking things like pallets around, saving my back a bit.

Point: These are well made, durable, sturdy boots. A good buy for less than $100. The only two things I do not like about them that make these boots lose a star are:

1- The strings kind of suck. They broke fast and are overly stretchy for my liking. This is a minor issue, as nice strings are quite inexpensive (couple of dollars).
2- The boots could be more comfortable and the padding inside wears down within the first few months.

Overall, a solid inexpensive pair of boots that could last up to two years, but I would advise, for comfort sake, replacing at least yearly.

This is a really well-written, thoughtful, incisive and funny analysis of what being Jewish means to this particular author, focusing on the key foundations of society.

As per my headline, I consider this to be an equivalent to the also fantastic "Why I no longer talk to white people about race" in the sense that the author observes seemingly small subtle points about a historical event through his own lens and shows that point to have far more resonance than I had ever noticed (for example I found the pages on the UK media's portrayal of Ed Miliband fascinating).

Whilst the author's focus is on his Jewish experience (for obvious reasons), I would imagine that many readers will connect with his experience of constantly navigating the space between being 'assimilated' into society and yet being perceived (and, in some ways, wanting to be perceived) as an "other".

This is clearly is one person's experience of being Jewish and his view point on the other aspects that are associated with that (for example, Israel). There will be parts that resonate. There will be parts that won't. There will be viewpoints you agree with. There will be viewpoints you won't agree with. But, whether you agree with them or not, it is written in an engaging manner that forces you to, at the very least, interact with that viewpoint. To be honest, It is rather depressing, and a sign of the times, to read reviews on here which are solely focused on those viewpoints that the reader does not agree with.

All in all, I found this to be a really thought provoking and really funny read. Parts made me laugh out loud. I'd recommend it to anyone that is interested in the Jewish experience or has an interest in wider race relations.

Understanding art meet all my expectations. A wonderful book with interesting, easy to read information. The clear, beautiful photos make studing even more enjoyable. It was worth every penny which was substantial. The book was delivered in great condition a couple of days before the Christmas holiday. What a wonderful present.

I absolutely love both (other isn’t pictured) of my phone cases. I also ordered the light green case, which I’m in love with! Purple is my favorite color and I was worried it would look more like a light pink, but when it arrived I fell in love with how classy and elegant it looks. My husband was even impressed with the appearance and how sturdy it feels. Thank you for a great product!

This licorice does not appear to be available on Amazon, but I ate a fair amount of it while living in France from 2009-2010. If you like a very strong licorice flavor (it says this is Aniseed flavored but I believe it is made with licorice root extract) you'll enjoy it. If you like mild flavors don't even try this one! ZAN also produces a round tin (40 grams) of small pieces of licorice that are made with 50% licorice extract. This thin flat pack tastes the same. It is not at all like Twizzlers or any other licorice product made in the U.S.A., although years ago Y&S made a very hard and strong licorice stick that has similar flavor.

Love licorice... I'm Dutch (yes - cliche) and love licorice. I did not know I could get it here on Amazon and I have been in the USA for the past 8 years. As far as licorice goes, Venco Honingdrop is about as good as it gets.

Al principio un poco decepcionada porque esperaba encontrar tronquitos enteros, como en la foto. Me gusta tanto el regaliz que lo quería para chupar, en plan caramelos. A mi padre se lo mandaba el médico, porque padecia gastritis y úlceras estomacales. Lo que pasa es que él compraba raíces frescas, y todavía recuerdo aquel jugoso y dulce sabor..!
Claro, ésto ni comparación. Al final me he ido animando a añadirlo en las infusiones, y parece que el calor le saca algo más de sabor. También sube la tensión, por cierto, no es apto para hipertensos.
Siempre lo infusiono acompañado con estevia natural, que le potencia el sabor y el dulzor. Utilizo una tetera de émbolo, y me gusta añadir hierbas variadas, según el momento.
El envase es bonito, aunque nada ecológico (de plástico ). Lleva un zip para cerrarse hermético y puede mantenerse de pié, con su base plana.
Es un producto aceptable y 100%natural. Pero las cinco estrellas sólo se las daría a las raíces frescas...😋

We bought this for our then 3 year old as she had begun to chew other non food items, such as furniture, money, toys, stones, etc, and whilst looking at the available chewing devices, we found a huge choice and had no idea which would be suitable. We showed our daughter some of the options and she immediately chose this one, which she has now had for two months and used every day. The flavour is still intact and it's definitely durable, showing no signs of use at all. The large size meani it would be suitable for all ages.
The only problem with it is that the baby likes it too.
