7.5 Inch Edible Cake Toppers – Avengers Infinity War: Thanos Themed Birthday Party Collection of Edible Cake Decorations
I was worried it would be thin and tear easily, but it was thick and laid down on top of the cake nicely. I'll have to cut holes with a knife to poke candles in it, but that's fine. It doesn't taste horrible; it just doesn't really taste like anything, so probably guests will just peel it off before they eat it. It says 7.5 inches but I had to use a 9 inch cake pan because the edges were hanging off when I compared it to the 8 inch pan I had planned to use, so keep that in mind.
Panther's Claw
Panther's Claw
A series of blackmail letters have been sent to a group of people by someone calling himself THE PANTHER. Police commissioner, Thatcher Colt (Sidney Blackmer) deduces the connection between the victims, having to do w/ a certain opera company. Colt has a prime suspect, but is he THE PANTHER? Directed by schlock-meister, William Beaudine (THE APE MAN, JESSE JAMES MEETS FRANKENSTEIN'S DAUGHTER), THE PANTHER'S CLAW is a long, drawn-out tale of extortion and homicide. At less than an hour and a half in length, it feels more like a day and a half! Much of the film is static, w/ little in the way of any real action or interesting dialogue to help move the "plot" along. Dreadfully dull, even for a Beaudine picture, this one could have benefited from better pacing. By the time the first murder victim is discovered, I was praying for death myself! Truly rancid...

Color is great but the fit and material was like a very thin layering tee. Would have required a couple layers which is not what I expected. for a dress Felt cheap but was not a cheap price at all given I have bought other dresses from this same brand for less on Amazon that were not as thin of material.

Third people selling on here are wicked. This product was too small for the price period. In this fearful and trying time people seems to be always looking to take advantage period.

安定して面白いです。
ワノ国は桃太郎ベースかな。
仲間を集め鬼退治と比較的シンプルな物語になってます。
光月おでんの過去が掘り下げられるのは確定的なので後々、物語に深みが出てくることでしょう。
個人的にワクワクしたのはルフィとゾロ、初期の二人が合流して暴れ回ってるとこですかね。
そしてその二人に振り回される苦労人のロー。
超新星の再登場も楽しみです。

Ode to Kirihito, Part 1
Ode to Kirihito, Part 1
Once i finished part 1 of ode to kirihito I promptly ordered the second part. Its hard for me to describe ode to kirihito but its dark, bizarre and a bit of an emotional roller coaster for the protagonist Kirihito. But I have to say the illustrations kinda have a bit of a lighter tone to it. Its a bit cartoony so this dark tale doesn't feel too bleak. So all in all it works very nicely and I have to say that it really kept me guessing.

I could describe the story but I think its best you just tuck into a good read!

I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in comics or manga but like I said it is a bit bizarre but very much edge on seat read. And there are sex scenes in it but they in my opinion have been done quite tastefully.
Medusa: A Kurt Austin Adventure
Medusa: A Kurt Austin Adventure
Kurt Austin and the gang team up for another adventure on and under the sea when a bathysphere dive they're conducting for NUMA is sabotaged, and both Kurt and his partner, Joe Zavala, are nearly killed. At the same time, a top-secret government undersea lab is hijacked and goes missing with its crew and a team of scientists on board. The target in the bathysphere attack seems to be Dr. Max Kane, a scientist making breakthroughs in immunology. The government whisks him away, but when Kurt sends plucky and beautiful Gamay Trout to Bonefish Key, the last known site of Dr. Kane's research, she and a Chinese scientist, Dr. Song Lee, are attacked and nearly killed. Dr. Lee puts Gamay and her husband Paul on the trail of an old whaling legend that holds the key to the mystery of the missing undersea habitat. Meanwhile, Kurt and Joe unearth information about the Pyramid Triad, now poised to overthrow the Chinese government and unleash an unstoppable plague upon the world. It will take the combined efforts of Kurt's whole team, with some help from the US Navy, to stop the masterminds and save the world from tyranny.

The action is fairly constant and all my favorite characters had a role, but it still felt as if there was something missing. The story just wasn't' as gripping as a Kurt Austin adventure should be. Everything felt somewhat forced and uninspired, as if the author followed an outline but just wasn't feeling it. I also had cause to wonder if the book is deliberately aimed at a much older audience, as celebrity references were a bit outmoded. Readers younger than I am might be completely clueless. The efforts toward fleshing out Zavala's character were also a bit clichéd, and his penchant for "salsa" music is a bit generic; how about some reggaeton or rancheras?

Complaints aside, I happen to know from unfortunate experience that there are much worse adventure books out there. This one was very readable, and had plenty of swashbuckling action.
Montana Dog Soldier (Brotherhood Protectors Book 6)
Montana Dog Soldier (Brotherhood Protectors Book 6)
Montana Dog Soldier is a good story with strong female and male leads. Joe aka Kujo is the male hero along with his German Shepherd Six, they are both retired military but being Delta Force makes him never fully retired. Kujo and Six are the newest members of Brotherhood Protectors.
Molly is an FBI agent out in the Crazy Mountains of Montana to find a terrorist training camp, when she is left for dead, Kujo and Six will save her life. Kujo and Molly have a love hate relationship at first as their trying to figure the other out. Once that trust develops, it's on like Donkey Kong. Kujo is one sexy alpha but he is also sweet and caring. Molly is strong, independent but knows when she is over her head and needs help.
if you read any other books in this series than you will see all previous Brotherhood members such as Hank, Taz, Bear, Duke and my favorite Swede. This is actually the first book of the series where all previous books characters had a little role and I loved it. I like when an author writes a series and includes all her characters in the books. I hate reading a series, only to never read about the previous characters. So I am excited James included the men and their woman in Montana Dog Soldier.
Happy Reading! !

Bleach 49: Der verlorene Agent
Ich kann anderen Manga Liebhabern Bleach nur empfehlen:

- Es ist spannend
- ungewöhnlich: Schüler (Ichigo) kann Geister sehen, wird zum Shinigami (Todesgott) kämpft gegen böse Geister, deckt Verschwörungen auf
- Es gibt ungewöhnliche Wendungen
- und hat lustige Einlagen und auch viele verschiedene Charaktere. Jeder ist für sich einzigartig
- Hauptcharakter wird mir von in jedem Kapitel immer sympathischer.

Harry Styles
Harry Styles
Anyone who has followed One Direction, and specifically Harry Styles, won't be too surprised by the direction of his solo album. He has always been known in the band as "the old soul" and his influences are Fleetwood Mac, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Paul Simon, and alternative rock rather than R&B, urban, pop, and electronic than his other band members have taken. This album represents him very well.

I think so many people associate One Direction with " What Makes You Beautiful " and immediately dismiss them as boy band fluff. The first two albums are NOT my favorites as I'm a 40-year old mom of boys. I wasn't dragged to their concerts, but found them after their appearance on The Late Late Show. Harry caught my attention immediately, not his looks but his low, raspy voice. Color me curious, I used Prime to listen and was surprised to discover they had some excellent songs (Harry-specific compositions include Walking in the Wind, If I Could Fly, Olivia, Stockholm Syndrome, Where Do Broken, Something Great, Happily, also see Through the Dark, 18, Fool's Gold, Once in a Lifetime, Fireproof, and What A Feeling for a small sampling of adult-friendly songs). The singles (and their management) may have pandered to their youngest fans, but they are enjoyable for older fans too...you just have to give them the chance.

Needless to say, I was really excited to see what Harry would do away from the constraints of his band and label. And he has truly flourished and quite literally blossomed as a solo artist. He's always been the quirky one and a solo album gives him the opportunity to shine. "The Pink Album" finds him (somewhat) exposed and vulnerable with his lyrics. As opposed to some fans, I don't dissect the lyrics looking for hidden meanings, but just listen for the enjoyment of some good music. And there are many standouts. In fact, the only one I tend to skip is "Sign of the Times" simply because I've heard it so much. There are plenty to chill to (Meet Me in the Hallway, Woman, From the Dining Table - WOW!), some sweet ones (Sweet Creature), and the rollicking ones (Carolina - current fave, Only Angel, Kiwi). The only complaint I have is on Ever Since New York, whose live version on Saturday Night Live, had some muscle behind it - the studio version is much more laid back, I kept waiting for the gritty vocals and his higher notes but they never came.

He's certainly not the first gender-bending artist but the aesthetic of the album suits him (he's already quite iconic and he's only 23). I truly think he's got "It" and has a lot of potential for someone so young. Don't dismiss him, give him a chance, he's quite the charmer and "Harry Styles" proves he's got the vocals and songwriting skills to go along with his hair, dimples, and high fashion!

Galaxy S8 Case, IMAGITOUCH 2-Piece Style Slim Fit Armor Case with Dual Layer Protective Cover Air Cushion Design Harry Potter Always for Samsung Galaxy S8 Harry Potter Dumbledore Always Hybrid
R2D2 is one of my favorite Star Wars characters. The image is very well done. This case really fits and holds my Galaxy S8 well. It's one piece, so installation is very easy. I'm not sure how sturdy it is because *knock on wood* I haven't dropped my phone yet since I put the case on. The different parts on it are textured so it's not smooth. The top and bottom of the case sticks out just enough to protect the phone's screen, so if you set your phone down with R2 facing up, your screen will not touch. The only negative for me with this case is where the power, volume, and Bixby buttons are. They are still very usable, but it's taking me some time to get used to them because they are flush with the case. I had an Otter Box on my phone before and those buttons were raised.
Brian Helsing: The World's Unlikeliest Vampire Hunter: Mission #1: Just Try Not To Die
Brian Helsing: The World's Unlikeliest Vampire Hunter: Mission #1: Just Try Not To Die
I was excited to start this book. In the forward, the author cites the works of Terry Pratchett, stating that the Discworld books were the ones that truly sparked his teenage imagination. And from that inspiration came the desire to write about "a hero who was relatable." OK. So far, so good. And then we find the f-bomb as the second word in the first chapter. Well. Not so good. Apparently, the author was attempting to instantly weed out any reader outside his target demographic. Hmm. Heavy-handed, if you ask me. But, whatever. It's his book. And then a few sentences later, he tosses "c**t" at us, a word that is mostly employed for its shock-value alone. It must have been thrown in for reinforcement, in case the f-word didn't work.

It takes a lot to make me appalled (I taught high school for many years), so I continued with the book. Given that the bad language mostly then disappeared, the initial vulgarities brought to mind a couple of seventh-grade boys, not yet grown into their adult voices or bodies, strolling down the sidewalk smoking cigarettes and loudly using every cuss word they can think of, appropriate to the situation or not, just to show the world what big men they are.

I gave up on the book at about the 66% mark. The pure sparkling wit of Discworld is not to be found anywhere in this book, or at least in the part that I read. Part of the problem is, I think, that there are a lot of British humor and cultural references offered up without a shard of explanation for us who live outside the UK. (For example, I have no idea why "L plates" on a moped might be funny. Or even if it's supposed to be funny.) There is also, apparently, a lot of gamer humor to be found within. I think. Maybe. Whatever. I'm not a gamer either.

I was, however, inspired to pick up my old copy of The Color of Magic.

Two and a half stars.
Rinnai V65EP Tankless Water Heater, Large, V65eP-Propane/6.5 GPM
Rinnai V65EP Tankless Water Heater, Large, V65eP-Propane/6.5 GPM
This is a review of the V53DeN. This is my second Rinnai tankless. The first was for the main house, this second for a master bedroom addition. I've had the first for more than 5 years and it's been wonderful. We didn't need 5.3gpm for a shower and a sink, but I trust Rinnai so I went with them again for the second heater. So far the unit has been great. My complaints have to do with the installation. I could have done it myself, but I hired a professional to help to make sure everything was to code. Neither of us could figure out the electrical from the enclosed instructions. We chased the wires in the diagram enclosed in the heater itself and figured out how to wire it, but no one should have to go through that effort to connect 3 wires. Also, the fitting for the electrical conduit on the bottom of the unit is machine thread not pipe thread. There must be a pipe-to-machine thread adapter that was missing from my unit. I will call Rinnai to find out. Again, the electrical shouldn't be this hard. It wasn't with our first unit. Finally, the box says "Wifi Enabled" but there's nothing in the instructions about how to connect. I don't care because I'm not connecting anyway, but it's just another way Rinnai really flubbed the documentation.
Edit: I finally finished the electrical connections 2 months later, no thanks to Rinnai customer help, who eventually stopped responding to my emails. The connection at the unit looks like 3/4" compression to me. I've attached pics in case they help anyone. It's a tight fit and getting at the cleanouts for yearly descaling is going to be tough. I'd skip this model and look for a different from Rinnai.
Power Rangers Mighty Morphin Movie - Rita Repulsa Figure
Power Rangers Mighty Morphin Movie - Rita Repulsa Figure
I’ve always had a soft spot for villainous femme fatales, and while I have mixed feelings about the 2017 Power Rangers reboot, when an opportunity to pick up the super rare Rita Repulsa action figure for a good price presented itself I couldn’t say no.

However, this is a case of bigger not always necessarily being better. Standing about 6.5 inches in height she is obviously much taller than her standard 5-inch counterpart, and yet she seems much less detailed. The sculpt is actually pretty cool, with a passing resemblance to Elizabeth Banks and lots of little details and textures etched into the layers of her armor. But unfortunately, unlike the smaller figure which offers some glimpses of flesh through the holes and tears of her costume, she’s basically painted all one solid shade of green so the effect is mostly lost. She is also extremely inarticulate and frozen in a somewhat awkward pose, with legs splayed wide and her scepter-wielding right arm sticking straight ahead. (On the plus side, she has no problem standing up by herself.) This is fine enough for my own display purposes, I guess, but would prove limiting if given to a child for play.

So while I see what they were going for here, as a “deluxe” figure it still strikes me as a bit of a lazy effort in comparison to the 5-inch version, but for what I paid I’m not going to complain too much. Plus, in a time when female characters in movies such as this are often overlooked when it comes to toys and marketing, I can certainly appreciate we got anything at all. Ideally I’d rate it about 3.5 stars, but will round up giving it the benefit of the doubt.

Loved this tree skirt for my country Christmas tree. Nice quality and fit my space perfectly. I’ve purchased this tree skirt in both 48”
& 36” as available tree space changed after building a few piece of furniture. Liked the 48” enough to buy the same in 36” the following year. When purchasing just make sure to buy according to your tree size & you’ll be very happy with your purchase.

LEGO Harry Potter Calendario de Adviento 75981, juguetes coleccionables de The Hogwarts Yule Ball, Harry Potter y la cáliz de fuego y más, gran regalo de Navidad o cumpleaños calendario nuevo 2020 (335 piezas)
While most people wrote glowing reviews of the 2019 advent calendar, I posted a critical one, emphasizing that it overlapped significantly with the items in the Great Hall set. Given that the 2020 advent calendar overlaps with the Clock Tower/Yule Ball set, you’d think I’d be upset about that—but I’m not. In fact, I’m really excited about the new advent calendar. Here’s why.

If you don’t have the Clock Tower set, this is an inexpensive way to get key highlights from the Yule Ball. But even if you own the Clock Tower, as I do, there are still plenty of reasons to want this advent calendar. First and foremost are the three new figures—I’m thrilled to get Lego versions of the Patil twins, and it is nice to have Cho in her Yule dress. While we are also getting repeats of three figures from the Clock Tower, two of those are so delightful—Hermione in her gown and Ron is his hilarious hand-me down—that I’m glad to have extras. As for the duplicate Harry, I’m switching his head to turn him into Roger Davies-- Fleur’s Yule date. That completes all of the Triwizard contestants in their Yule garb and with their dates.

I’m also pleased with the other parts of the new advent calendar. The wrapped broom and Yule invitation look great. And most of the other pieces don’t feel redundant with the Clock Tower set. Instead, I think they will become useful additions to that set.

Despite my initial misgivings about the 2019 advent calendar, my daughter and I ultimately had a great time opening it. We are now even more excited about the 2020 version.

I wish I could give this zero stars. I preserved specifically for my Epson WF7710 and it is not for my printer. I did not notice it was wrong until I went to place the cartridge into my printer. I trusted the description and myself not being a printer wiz I thought what I received was correct. The color sequence does not match the printer. I did not find this out until the ink was already loaded so now I can’t return because the ink was put in and not I’m out $60 for the ink I put into it. If you have a epson wf7110 this will not work for you. You can see my printer color sequence and the cartridge they sent color sequence. Does not match at all and unable to move them around. I am so pissed I lost over $100 buy this

Starwest Botanicals Orgánica Raíz de regaliz corte suelto y tamizada, 1 libra bolsa a granel
UPDATE 03-2020 (TURKEY SOURCED - 0 STARS): I purchased this same exact product again, but this time from Swanson. This variety's latest sourcing is from TURKEY. I thought the South Africa variety was bad; just wait until the TURKEY variety hits the Amazon inventory. Unfortunately, the quality is REALLY BAD and EVEN WORSE than the previous bad sourcing from SOUTH AFRICA. The root is stale and dark with too much bark and grey fleshy areas. Tastes like bitter dry sticks. NOT SWEET AT ALL And it's also cut much courser compared to the EGYPT variety which was cut flaky and light. I had some of the Egypt variety left from a 4-5 years ago and the taste and smell of the Turkey variety is TERRIBLE in comparison. I made my usual morning tea with 2 tea spoons of this Turkey-sourced garbage which provides NO SWEETNESS in my tea - PURE BITTERNESS. Worsening quality at an ever-increasing price!! I returned the 2 bags I ordered from Swanson and reordered thinking I got some bad bags. Well the replacements are just as NASTY. I paid $12.30 per 1lb bag during Swanson's 40% OFF sale and it's still overpriced by $12.30 plus aggravation. (If interested, Swanson has a 40% OFF sale every few weeks.) I wrote a product review on Starwest's website and it was never published. As a matter of fact, the newest review for this product on their website is from 2016. Apparently Starwest DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING in terms of this product.

I'm desperately looking for a better brand. I add this to my tea daily to help with my adrenal condition. If you know of any, please comment. Thanks so much.

UPDATE 12-2018 (SOUTH AFRICA SOURCED - 1 STAR): I just received a new batch of this product and the quality is now TERRIBLE. It WAS a great product from Egypt as described in my original review. Now this product is sourced from SOUTH AFRICA. The quality, texture and taste is really bad. The texture is huge and inconsistent and the taste is stale and/or flavorless. Even the scent of the product is totally off and smells like petroleum and nothing like the beautiful Egypt-sourced licorice scent. In my original review, I said, "Starwest, please don't change the source of this stuff (Egypt) or change anything. It's perfect". Well, they messed-up.

ORIGINAL REVIEW 10-2015 (EGYPT SOURCED - 5 STARS): I'm very happy with the product. I've been buying the Frontier Licorice root for for the last few years but was never really satisfied with the quality. It always tasted stale and had a dark unusual color. This Starwest brand is more natural in color and tastes amazing, and the grind texture is flaky and airy to the perfect size which would make a perfect tea. And the bags are resealable. The best licorice root I ever tasted... I've tried a lot of brands both online and in Asian stores.. I'm sorry I didn't switch to Starwest sooner. Starwest, please don't change the source of this stuff (Egypt) or change anything. It's perfect.
