The Third Secret: A Novel of Suspense
The Third Secret: A Novel of Suspense
This book is about the last Marian apparitions and the governance of the Roman Church.
The catholic clergy has never taken a clear stand as far as supernatural appearances by the Virgin Marye are concerned. This uncertainty gives room to create a marvellous novel based on some historical facts enriched with the creativity, precision and skilfulness of Steve Barry.

Barry is very good at creating a storyline in which the good ones (the German Pope, his Irish secretary and a African cardinal) want to help the Church restoring the truth and the bad ones (the secretary of state and other Italian cardinals) want to help the church restoring the original faith . In this struggle, knowing the secret behind Fatima is crucial and who will succeed will be in the position to forge the future of the Church.

What I did like the most in this book? First, I could not put it done. The book comprises of a series of events that are quite unpredictable. This author does not annoy the reader with lengthy and tedious descriptions of places and feelings: the focus is always on the unfolding of the events
Second, it was able to stimulate my interest in history and specifically in the history of Church.
Barry is a declared history-lover and and his passion is able to affect the reader.

The thrilling plot and the historical base are probably two features of all Barry’s books, but I regard this even better than the one I read before, “The Romanov Prophecy”, which was already 5 stars

At end of the book Berry states accurately which facts are historically true and which are his own creations. This is methodologically very correct and shows great respect towards the importance of History.

Enjoyable read. Makes you reflect and refocus. Very applicable. I enjoyed your personal anecdotes and insights. A valuable resource. It goes conform with my experience in real estate sales. A solid mental framework for entrepreneurial success I'd say. Highly recommendable especially for those just starting out in business or seeking 'the edge' to achieve lasting success. I like it. Looking forward to your next works. Well done. Keep up the good work.

Black Panther Luxury PU Leather Front Car Seat Cover Protector with Bling Bling Crystal Rhinestones for Women Girls, Universal Fit 95% of Cars, Black
Love ♥️ these seat covers!! These come in 2 Styles, Leather and Mesh. I first ordered the Leather ones, some of the crystals were missing and there were severe creases in the leather where they were folded for shipping which didn’t look good at all. I returned the leather and ordered the mesh. I’m so glad I did... I absolutely love the mesh ones better!!! Unfortunately this set had crystals missing as well so I returned them and ordered another set. After ordering 3 different sets, I finally got a set with all of the crystals in tact. Even though there were still creases from folding, it was no where as severe as the creases in the leather ones. They definitely sparkle when the light hits them!! The pictures don’t do them justice. They are so much prettier in person. I’ve received so many compliments already that I’m contemplating getting another set for my back seats!! My suggestion would be for the seller to package them flat so that they don’t have the creases in it. Everyone that has seen them thought that the price was too expensive for what you are getting but I’m a firm believer that you get what you pay for so I’m okay with the price! I love them!!!
Amazing Spider-Man Epic Collection: Ghosts Of The Past (Amazing Spider-Man (1963-1998))
Amazing Spider-Man Epic Collection: Ghosts Of The Past (Amazing Spider-Man (1963-1998))
I've got a lot of Spider-Man reprints. I've got a bunch of the Essentials releases... I have a bunch of the hardcover Masterworks. I passed on the Omnibus collections, since those were way too pricy.
This is the first time I'm really, really happy with the release.
The big stuff. This starts off with ASM 259. This is the last comic that was in my old trade paperback of the Alien Costume saga. It's an issue that spends a lot of time in conversation between Peter and Mary Jane, while simultaneously setting up an arc with the Hobgoblin. From there, we jump into ASM annual 18, which has Scorpion messing with J. Jonah Jameson as Jameson is planning to get married.

This is a big deal to me. I love having the annual stories reprinted, since they haven't gotten much love in most of the other reprints.
This extends a little, reprinting Web of Spider-Man 1 and 6. The first one ties up some loose ends involving the alien costume, and #6 ties into a Secret Wars II storyline that Spider-Man had, involving a building being transformed into gold.

There are some really notable issues in this. I love the gold building storyline. There are a few issues dealing with Spider-Man fighting Firelord, which has come to be appreciated. Spider-Kid... Hobgoblin, the Rose... a very fun issue where Spider-Man tracks a criminal to the suburbs.

All of this is presented chronologically. The paper is good, the color is good. The binding is good.

Then there are a few little touches that I really like. First, there's a volume number. This is volume 15. This means that they have planned these releases out. I like the promise that this implies. Second, there's a table of contents, which includes the issue, the title of the story, and the month and year. I know this sounds trivial, but when I would read the Essentials volumes, sometimes I would want to look up some of the current events, and most of the time, there wouldn't be a year anywhere.
Even though I have several of these issues reprinted elsewhere, I'm very happy that there are these releases, and the comprehensive approach is very appreciated. I might actually pick up a few volumes of other characters that I don't like as much, just because the experience is so ideal.

Premium Professional Pizza Cutter Wheel By VestaHomeStore - With Sharp Angled Stainless Steel Blade, Ergonomic Anti-Slip Handle & Durable Blade Cover - Ideal For Pizza, Pies, Waffles and Dough Cookies
This is a great pizza cutter. It doesn't have some CD-size blade for looks-over-function. The blade is very sharp (for a pizza cutter), heavy gauge, and comes with a plastic blade guard for storage. The guard protects not just the blade of the pizza cutter from being dulled, but can also protect against cuts should careless people (like children) start rummaging around in the drawer where it's stored. If you're tired of grocery store pizza cutters with thin, flexible, dull blades and dollar-store quality handles, you will really appreciate this.

Kraft Dinner Spicy Cheddar Macaroni & Cheese, 156g (Pack of 12), Imported from Canada}
Nice little kick to it.
It’s an actual elbow Macaroni then the traditional KD.
The box contents are about 100g less then a traditional box which works for me to make a quick late night meal for myself without the leftovers. So 1 box makes a good size plate of pasta.
The subscription option is my favourite to purchase this rather then the store so a pantry stable.

A Culinary tip of mine would be to top with some pickle jalapeños. Sooo Goood!
Adult Cat in The Hat Costume Accessory Kit
Adult Cat in The Hat Costume Accessory Kit
The quality of things you buy for the purpose of costuming is often a crap shoot. That's why I spend more time reading the reviews of costume products than I do of computers costing over a thousand dollars. You always have a recourse if the computer doesn't work right. If you are stuck with a shoddy costume item costing three dollars, no body cares.

With this set, you get your money's worth. I was only interested in the hat, and I found that fit my relatively small head rather well. But, if you have a larger than 6 1/2 head, it may be a bit tight. Next to fitting is the ability of the hat to stand up straight, with only the slightest hint of a bend, here and there. This succeeds quite well, although I will not attest to whether it will hold that shape if you scrunch it down to store in a bag for any period. It needs "space" like on the top shelf of a tall closet, or perhaps on a peg on a clothes tree.
Resonance
Resonance
When the alien monster robot attacks the space colony on the outer moon of, oh wait, different author's book. I don't like to give away spoilers, so I won't say many specifics about the story, except to say you should purchase the book for your KIndle or Nook e-book reader, or get the paperback and enjoy yourself.
When you begin reading any book by A.J. Scudiere you already know certain things: the book will be well-written, with excellent editing and proper proofing. You will know the story will be well thought out, well constructed, fast-paced and filled with enough twists and turns to feel like a ride down San Francisco's Lombard Street.
In her books, you will find the characters to be complex, realistic and solid enough that you actually care what happens to them after the next unexpected event befalls them. An important thing for me when I read a book is that I am never forced to suspend disbelief, as happens in so many e-books on the market today. Another thing with A.J.'s books is you will never know which genre the book will belong to, since she will surprise you at some point and throw a genre at you that you are not expecting; whether it is a standard crime fiction (with a twist), something with a little supernatural bent on the side or simply a current day science fiction novel based on scientific fact.
Resonance is no different. When most people think of science fiction, they think of a story that takes place in Earth's dystopian future, on another planet or deep in outer space, involves, monsters, aliens and robots or the effects of thermo-nuclear war. There is another type of sci-fi, though; a story set on Earth at the current time; a book that which involves actual scientific theories, yet is fictional; but it is a storyline that could very well occur tomorrow. A.J. Scudiere is a master of this type of story.
As with "Shadow Constant," when I began reading "Resonance" I thought the story was going in one direction. Not much further into the book, the storyline went somewhere else, for a far more interesting and realistic read. A.J.Scudiere's books are like a roller coaster ride. They are fast-paced, full of unexpected twists, turns and flips, and whenyou are done, you want to jump on the next one right away.
Alexander Pushkin: Complete Prose Fiction
Alexander Pushkin: Complete Prose Fiction
What makes this book so beautiful is that word "Complete". In one handy reference you can enjoy all of Pushkin's prose. Mr. Debreczeny's translation of Pushkin's work is hearty. I believe it's nearly as close as we can come to feeling the work outside of really knowing Russian.
That would be amazing for me: to know Russian and read Pushkin in the language that he raised high in the face of the patrician encroachment of French that had relegated Russian to servant status. Each language must have a unique and valuable propriety in it's innermost meanings, and in reading this work (plus knowing something of Russian culture), I believe you can feel that unique Russian "thing" even through this translation.
You have about fifteen pieces plus Pushkin's own pre-work/research and some fragments. Mr. Debreczeny has arranged them such that you walk through the development of Pushkin as a prose writer. Early on, he did have quite a disdain for prose in comparison to poetry. To paraphrase Debreczeny, Pushkin's first serious writing treated prose as a necessary evil, writing with technical correctness but approaching parody of itself with strict adherence to the concept of prose as a sterile, low medium for expression.
I the later works, you will see the layering of complex themes and characters into prose that for me felt like driving a standard shift with power-assisted steering -- You get just enough resistance to feel the road and keep you engaged and thinking. Also, you just plain enjoy the ride.
Mr. Debreczeny is an excellent guide in his commentary and in his translation.
Tales of Belkin (The Art of the Novella)
Tales of Belkin (The Art of the Novella)
Alexander Pushkin is considered one of Russia’s great authors of short stories and Tales of Belkin are considered among his earlier and better-known collections. The only uniting thread to the five stories is as we are told in the somewhat comic introduction supposedly in Pushkin’s own voice is that all of these stories were collected by a third person, the landowner nice guy but mostly bland Belkin. We are to believe that these are all true stories but passed directly or indirectly to the real author/editor Belkin, now deceased. We are to believe these are all true stories but all links to their sources are broken.

Among the more common themes is Russian fiction is a duel. And it is with a duel that the collection begin. Called The Shot, it starts as another view into life among under employed Army officers but ends continues with the more unusual concept of an incomplete duel.

Given Russian weather it is also common to have a short story about or called The Blizzard. Something of a serio-comic romance misadventure.

The Undertaker is not surprising, a Ghost Story. But Pushkin starts with the typical and takes it into hisown direction.

The Station Master is perhaps the most complex of these stories. It begins with a discussion of Russian Civil Service and the lowly role of one of its most junior professions, the station master. Our story teller relates the story of what he experienced as well as heard from one that is worth telling. Thinking again on the collection, Pushkin would have it understood that P is publishing the stories as told to Belkin and in this case involving both first hand and second hand points of origin.

The Squire’s Daughter continues this process of stories told to, and told by the person who heard it from. The plot to this one can be told without an spoiler by noting that in the Russian the Title is The “Noblewoman-Peasant” This is a romantic love story.

Overall, the short collection 108 pages in the always elegant Melville Art of the Novella editions are a pleasant few hours of reading. These are not great tales. None of them are memorable, but given Russian literature’s reputation for heavy, dark and long reads, The Tales of Belkin make for easy reads and a fine introduction to the great Russians.

Black Jack, Volume 11
Black Jack, Volume 11
I've been a huge fan of the series thus far, making sure to collect every volume as it is released. With the latest volume hitting the shelves of my bookstore earlier this week, I knew that I'd be taking it home as soon as payday hit.

This volume collects more stories from the series, with the stories ranging from a man who wants to implant his dead girlfriend's voice into his dog (with mixed results) to a crazed dictator whom Black Jack has been ordered to keep alive. Each story in this volume is just filled with good quality stories that'll keep you reading to the end of the volume.

As always, the artwork is top notch classic Tezuka & despite it's cartoonish appearance, it manages to impart a wealth of emotions to the reader. The artwork may be off-putting to some, but I really implore potential readers to give this manga a chance. There's a good reason that this is considered to be one of the true classics of manga.

Also as always, this is a standalone volume & new readers can pick it up without missing too much of the previous storyline- although I still insist that you should start from the first few volumes. Even though you can read this without missing much of the previous stories (all of which are also self contained), this volume sort of glosses over some of the previously stated information.

I have to admit, this might be turning into my top favorite volumes in the series. This is one that fans of the series really can't miss out on getting! It's starting to get into the home stretch, with only about 6-7 more volumes to go! (If Vertical is going by the original Japanese publications, then there's about an extra volume's worth of manga besides the 17 established volumes in the series- I'm not sure if they'll be publishing it or not.)

Planes and Rockets and Things That Fly
Planes and Rockets and Things That Fly
This book is a collection of airplane-related stories from other Richard Scarry books and includes some nice kid-friendly explanations of how planes work. Just the thing for young pilots!

While Scarry's books are filled with whimsy and cute animals it's obvious he put a lot of attention into detail. Many of the planes are based on real world aircraft from WWI onwards and his story about traveling to the moon is based on how the real Apollo rockets worked. Granted the Apollo astronauts didn't have any talking worms but that's besides the point :) There's also diagrams of airports and aircraft if you're looking to prepare kids for a trip.

This was an instant hit with our toddlers and I can see it will be popular for some time.

One caution, this was a UK book and our copy shipped from overseas so expect some delays in delivery.

I love this book because my little nephew does. The pages are filled with tiny intricate drawings and lots of things are happening. It's the kind of book an adult can read to a kid and get into lots of discussions about what is actually happening on the page and how characters feel and act. As in life, mistakes are rife and so lead to more discussions.
The Gray Ghost (A Sam and Remi Fargo Adventure Book 10)
The Gray Ghost (A Sam and Remi Fargo Adventure Book 10)
"Clive Cussler writes formulaic stories..."
"Cussler is over the top..."
Yeah, I've read all the criticisms of Cussler and his adventure novels and, while some of those critiques are probably valid, I really don't care.
The fact is that Cussler, while no threat to win a Nobel Prize for Literature, knows how to create engaging characters and tell a great adventure story.
"The Gray Ghost," featuring two of my favorite Cussler heroes, is an example of what I'm talking about.
The story revolves around the long-ago theft of an early Rolls-Royce prototype and a famous train robbery. Flash forward to the present day when Sam Fargo finds out he is a distant cousin to a British noble family that is in dire financial straits. Skeptical as to the Brit family's motives, he and his wife Remi agree to go to England to at least look into the situation. Predictably, adventure follows leading to a chase through Italy and France in search of that legendary motorcar and a hidden treasure.
Full of dramatic action sequences, colorful characters, and exotic locales "The Gray Ghost" is a fun read; a perfect backpack companion for a day at the beach or a lazy summer afternoon in the park.
Becoming Astrid
Becoming Astrid
To understand the movie, it helps to know a few things.

This was in the 1920s and the Social Democrats and the
Communists were still in the process of subverting the
iron-grip of the State-Church (Swedish-Lutheran).
The message from the pulpits was: Work hard and obey
your masters. They are wiser than you; that is why God
set things up as He did. You will get your reward for all
eternity in Heaven after you die.

Needless to point out, this was a happy tune to the
owner (capitalist) class and also to the large land-owner
class. The greatest part of the population lived in a
serf or tenant-farmer society still. Class mobility was
a new idea.

The labor unions had not yet established many
work-related reforms, but there were working
on these things.

There was no free medical care, although there was
universal education for those whose parents could spare
them the time to be in school.

Women were paid only a small amount for jobs
for which men were paid much more.

Astrid's family were partly employed through the Church
and the land and the house they lived on was owned by the
Church. This put them even more under the thumb of
holy tyranny, compared to only having to keep up
appearances for the neighbors (which was still extreme
at that time).

So, these are some of the factors which caused the story
to go as it did.

Edición mediocre, buena ortografía, sin páginas a color a pesar que en la versión japonesas las hay, tapas muy blandas, porte de las hojas menor al normal, hay cortes de 1 cm por lado que no aparecen en esta versión, las hojas y su calidad son discutibles, parece papel reciclado. Si no saben inglés es la única versión para ustedes, en caso de que se manejen en otro idioma les recomiendo la versión de viz media, ojo que si van por viz media compren la edición normal por tomos, que la 3-1 trae unas hojas muy delgadas y no vale la pena.

Complete Vampire Chronicles (Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, The Queen of the Damned, The Tale of the body Thief)
Complete Vampire Chronicles (Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, The Queen of the Damned, The Tale of the body Thief)
Lately, I have been getting a little sick of this vampire pandemic that we are in at this moment, but after watching Interview With the Vampire for the first time--yes, I know that I'm a little late at getting to this movie, but I've been busy--I bought the box set. I was a little skeptical at first, knowing that I really wasn't into vampires, but thesebooks are actually more than that. These books tell the story about a man that struggles with creature that he has become because he is a naturally good person, while the thing that he has become is naturally the opposite.

And the gloriously evil Lestat is quite the character,as well. First in Interview With the Vampire, he is a fiend, to say the least, and loves being as evil as he can, as if he only does it just to grate on every last nerve that Louis has left. Then, in The Vampire Lestat, you get to understand why he is so evil and wicked. Lastly, in the Queen of the Damned, you get to realize that he is, in his own delirious way, compassionate with the Queen. I really enjoyed how this series portrayed Lestat and how a man that is definitely evil, can also be capable of having true feelings for the things that are closest to him.

I still don't like vampires, as I am more of a werewolf man, I can still say that I appreciate this obvious classic for the descriptiveness and well-developed plot. I reccomend this box set to every single person that enjoys a challenging read. Please enjoy!
Shout at the Devil
Shout at the Devil
My first Wilbur Smith novel and I was pleasantly surprised. More depth, more action, more violence, and better characterization than I'd expected out of an action book written in the 1960s. "Shout at the Devil" is set in east Africa in and near the Rufiji delta just around the start of World War I. The bold, selfish, hot-tempered American O'Flynn organizes the massacre of a large elephant herd in order to collect the ivory tusks. Problem is, the herd belongs to the Germans and so the raid precipitates a deadly conflict between the two sides.

The events of the second half of the novel are actually based loosely on the story of the German light cruiser Königsberg, eventually sunk by the British in 1915. It is evident particulary during this part of the book that Smith researched details of how the Königsberg survived in the delta for as long as it did.

A great action novel to read while on vacation. The pages turn quickly and the story is informative and well-written. Also, nothing in the book is so outlandishly fictional as to not be believable.
Harry Crews: Survival is Triumph Enough
Harry Crews: Survival is Triumph Enough
I had wanted to know more about Harry Crews ever since I read his great 1978 novel "A Childhood". This documentary is full of interesting and weird stuff about Crews, all of which is told by him through on-camera interviews. Turkle does a good job of editing, using just the right amount of what Crews has to say about his experiences to provide some humor along with the pain and suffering. Many of those experiences were unknown to me, and I was very moved by the scene where Crews speaks about the accidental drowning of his first born son. Yes, drugs and alcohol are a big part of Crews's tale but there's much more to his life than that. Also, the Terry Allen music ( "Give Me The Flowers") that accompanies the film is spot on.
Harry Potter: A Spirit Conspiracy?
Harry Potter: A Spirit Conspiracy?
what Harry Potter teaches is that it's ok to say spells and read magic books and believe that one can be a wizard or witch ... There is no such thing as a good witch or good wizard... To get into witchcraft you make a deal with satan , if you read books of the occult you will realize this... You gotta be a god forsaken blind lustful rascal to deny that Harry Potter is not satanic...

This is to you blind grown people who have children or planning to have children , satan isn't after you , you already believe there is no God , you already believe that satan isn't real... Guess what you'll be doing , teaching your ignorance to your children , and thanks to that , satan has already half the job done... Satan is after your children... You people will cry blood when you see your children outside the age of accountability go to hell , along with you...

Spider's Trap (Elemental Assassin Series Book 13)
Spider's Trap (Elemental Assassin Series Book 13)
SPIDER’S TRAP is the first installment in phase 3 of the ELEMENTAL ASSASSIN series. One was Mab Monroe. Two was M. M. Monroe. Three is, well, the ending of this book, and Jennifer Estep’s version is gads more awesome than my recap could ever be, so yeah, you should be one-clicking this title right about now. Anyway, moving on, there’s also politicking, bombs, blasts from the past, plus tons of good ol’ fashioned The Spider bravado.

This story had a bit of a different vibe to it with Gin having to act as mediator to the kingpins of the underworld instead of stabbing first, and asking questions later. I enjoyed Blanco’s not-so-tactful approach to their grievances, and her dialogue was exceptionally strong in this novel from the violent one-liners, to the big-stupid-grin inducing snarky retorts. The fights were aces too, but the character growth was definitely the star.

The author certainly tugged on my heartstrings with this installment; I can’t remember the last time that I was this drained after reading an EA title! Fletcher flashbacks are always bitter sweet, and something pretty significant happens to one of the secondaries. Again, I’m being Vague McVaguerson here because it’s better for your sanity if you don’t see this one coming. I’ve found that the band-aid approach is best in these types of situations.

I’ve brought this up on oh close to thirteen occasions now, but Estep’s villains are guaranteed crowd pleasers, and this latest enemy was right on the money. He/she wielded a not-so-new elemental power; however their approach and mastery made it feel like it was the first time I’d laid eyes on it. The final powwow was inventive, and written in such a way that I could smell the flowers in Ashland’s Botanical Gardens, and I think that I may have gotten blood on my shoes.

Thirteen was NOT unlucky for Jennifer Estep. SPIDER’S TRAP—go get it!
Power Rangers Hand Gear Mega Mode Hand Gear Fire
Power Rangers Hand Gear Mega Mode Hand Gear Fire
Got these gloves for part of my nephews birthday gift (he had power rangers themed party). I guess I should have measured the gloves from the info listed first, but the description says suggested for ages “4-17”... I think that’s a pretty wide gap. I don’t know how something would comfortably fit a small child AND a grown teenager...

I would suggest checking the hand size of your child before purchasing. They are wayyyyy too big for my 4 yr old nephew. He still loves them, but it’s hard for him to do anything in them or play because he has to constantly adjust the top of the gloves :(

How to Be a Power Connector: The 5+50+100 Rule for Turning Your Business Network into Profits
My book arrived from Amazon the day before I left to go SCUBA diving in Bonaire with friends, so I brought it with me to read on the plane. Before I returned, I had read it cover-to-cover, very slowly, twice, meticulously underlining hundreds of need-to-remember passages.

This is the most important personal and professional book I've read in decades. For me it’s a true game-changer. It has caused me to rethink how I approach my business and work as a writer.

An exceedingly well-structured and well-written book, it skillfully blends the idea of strategic, purposeful networking with the central imperative to generously add value, giving over and over without expecting anything in return.

More than that, Robinett gives a wealth of specific how-to recommendations:
• How to use social media to nurture your network.
• How to put practical limits on your networking activities: the 5+50+100 rule.
• How to evaluate who you’re connected to.
• How to organize a system to keep track of existing relationships.
• How to “ask” for what you need.
• How to follow up after making contact.
• How to “work a room” at a public gathering.
• How to identify people you don’t want in your network.
• How to assess your own value as a network resource.
• How to approach a new contract.

And a lot more. I especially liked her insights about the differences between male and female networkers.

There is so much how-to “meat” about this vital subject that for me, it’s more than a how-to book. It’s a reference book. Before I adopt a tracking system, before I attend another conference, before I approach another high-profile influencer, I will reread the relevant chapters.

I honestly feel that people who are trying to succeed in business and who haven’t read the book are at a serious disadvantage. My advice: get your hands on a copy and read it at your earliest convenience.

The shopping bags are good quality and big and don't look like they'll get too dirty too quickly. They'll hold up under a thousand washes.
I shop once a month so they have to be able to hold up all the goodies that I bring back.
I worry because of their good quality that they might get lifted out of the shopping cart however I will strap them in along with my purse as if it were a child going for a ride in the top of the cart. If somebody yanks to grab one from the cart before it is filled, they're going to break their arm because between the seatbelt on the cart and the strength of these bags, nothing will give.

GREAT MOVIE-BIOPIC OF CAPTAIN G.R.GOPINATH, Founder of Air Deccan. The movie is completely based on collection of true events and greatly narrated for cinema audience. SURYA, nailed it. Each of his frame is delightful to watch, especially his eye expression in all emotional scenes, maintained different body (physique) for younger, middle age, rugged versions. A lot of weigh on his shoulder and he did carried with ease in acting with immense of hard work. SUDHA KONGARA, well directed. Another big hit, Kudos. APARNA BALAMURALI, No one could say her first Tamil movie. Very well acted and great dialogue delivery in Madurai slang. I could see Sudha in her acting, very well connected. Overall - A great motivational movie of a true entrepreneur with a strong message "DONT GIVE UP YOUR DREAMS UNTIL YOU SUCCEED". Mainly Kudos to four soorar's - SURYA, SUDHA KONGARA, G.V PRAKASH, APARNA BALAMURALI and other cast/crew's. Best wishes.

These balloons were perfect. They are exactly as advertised. If you are looking for big, elegant, yet playful balloons this is it. It was perfect for my sister-in-law's housewarming party. 16 balloons were enough to decorate the party space because of the size of the balloons. They were durable and unlike some other balloons I've tried, did not deflate hours later. This ensured that even though I decorated the day before the party, they looked perfect the day of the event. The packaging said to rub the inflated balloons against the carpet to make it more static-y and this worked well to distribute the confetti on the inside. The shipping on this was also super fast. Overall I'm very satisfied and will for sure return for all my future party balloon needs.

Honestly I didn't expect much. Yet, I was extremely surprised. Ultra surprised. The kind of surprised that I would almost start a Youtube channel just to post a video about the computer surprised. Lets start step by step. It came on time, 2 day Amazon Prime shipping, check. The packaging? I'd actually be kind of amazed if something would of happened to the computer, extremely protective packaging, a big box, then lots of protective paper on the inside sorrounding another box, and inside that box, this air chamber panel buffer case sorrounding the computer, computer safe, check.

Extra: mouse and keyboard, already had my own but it's really nice of them to spend a spare just in case.

Included: Power plug.

Included: Operating system. Really? Yup. Windows 10 with upgrade.

Performance: Outstanding. Might not have the newst specs, a wi fi card, a massive shard drive storage, killer graphics video card, etc. But you'd be extremely surprised how well this computer performs. Which is no big deal, ethernet card is great, and the 256 storage is more than enough especially living in a world where most things are on the cloud anyways. Their is nothing bad I can say about this computer in any sense. Even comparing it to more updated models.

Awesome extra: I hadn't connected the speakers yet, but when Windows turned on I heard a chime kind of sound. Would you beleive it, the computer actually came with a built in speaker, okay okay, it's not great by any means, but it's a speaker, and to me that was really kind of cool.

Finishing up with this, this company I bought from, is great. I mean really great, makes me want to scour through all their inventory of compuers and laptops even though I don't need one right now, and tell my friends about it kind of great.

The screens will not stay on very well from the edges. The install itself was well done thanks to the guide it comes with. The issue is that the edges will not stick and keep rising. When removing the first screen (2 pack) it cracked and gave me a small cut on my finger. Had to throw it out. The second install was the same issue. I am very disappointed. I will be returning the last screen to them as that one did not crack when removing it. My phone is still unprotected. This isn’t my first tempered glass install. It should be pretty smooth sailing but it wasn’t.

!!!Reparatur Update_7_02_2017!!!
Leider hat die Treue aufgehört Milch auf zu wärmen. 6737 Bezüge hat sie ohne Beanstandung geschafft.
Problem: Ich höre wie der Dampf produziert wird, er kommt aber vorne nicht wie gewohnt heraus. Es klingt als wäre innen irgendetwas verstopft. Werkzeug holen, Internet an und los gehts.....

Mit etwas Geschick zerlegt, Keramikventil ausgebaut, zerlegt und gereinigt und einfach mal alle Schläuche durchgespült mit einer Wasser gefüllten Spritze. Tatsächlich ist ein Schlauch (der rote) komplett zu! Jedoch habe ich dann bemerkt es ist nicht der Schlauch selbst, sondern die Düse die im höhenverstellbaren Teil vorne an der Stelle verstopft ist.

Das ganze Gehäuse kann nach vorne abgezogen werden (kleiner Clip von unten zu sehen), da befindet sich eine Kunststoffdüse mit einem ca. 1mm großem Loch. Die war zu! Ein Tag in Essig gelegt, eingebaut und alles geht wieder, juhu.

Wer dazu Hilfe benötigt darf gerne Fragen stellen.

+++ Update_20_11_2015 +++
Nach nun 5.000 Bezügen bin ich immer noch voll zufrieden mit der unproblematischen Maschine.
Sie hat bei einem Reinigungsvorgang mal abgebrochen und in rot einen Fehler angezeigt, der aber nach aus- und wieder einschalten behoben war.

...geschrieben.
Nur kurz: Das die Maschine sich bei jedem ausschalten "REINIGT" ist für mich nicht negativ, sondern positiv.
Lieber öfter mal Wasser nachfüllen als Schimmelkaffee.
Alles positive in den anderen Rezensionen kann ich bestätigen.
Damit die Abtropfschale nicht immer gleich voll ist benutze ich ein extra Gefäß das ich darunter stelle vor dem ausschalten.
Das hat den vorteil das es nicht so spritzt wenn das Wasser in die Tropfschale fließt.
Und noch einer: Wenn ich "Warme Milch" zubereite nehme ich eine Tasse mit Milch und stecke den Schlauch direkt in die Tasse,
nicht in den Milchbehälter. Die Menge ganz rauf auf 220 ml, das hat zur folge das die Milch im Kreis zirkuliert und somit wirklich warm wird.

Jedem der sich für diese Maschine entscheidet wünschen wir viel Spaß!
Wir sin sehr zufrieden.

[Update below] I haven't a basis of comparison, haven't purchased a blend like this before, but I hoped for a pronounced buttery taste. I could just barely detect a butter flavor. I wanted to use it in place of butter on oatmeal and grits, in particular. Didn't work for me, when I added enough to be able to taste they were too oily. I like ghee, it's lighter and more flavorful- I think the proportion of ghee in this must be relatively small.

Update: I added a star because I found I DO like it in dishes for which a little oil is customary, like pork-fried rice and stir-frys (and unlike porridge, rice and veggies don't absorb this blend, so you CAN taste the ghee, and a little goes a long way). I'm on a new low-fat vegetarian diet (experimenting) and made a version with brown rice, Soy TVP chunks (Barry Farms, so good) and a few peas. I didn't actually fry it, I added a tiny amount of this on the plate (not even a teaspoonful). I sprinkled with chives and a little onion salt, and it was very close to our family recipe, a favorite. So I've revised my opinion- I'm sure there will be other good uses too- (on popcorn?). I also like the packaging, it doesn't leak, and the fact that no refrigeration is required is nice for camping.

TRENDnet 4-Port Broadband Router,TW100-S4W1CA, 4 x 10/100 Mbps Half/Full Duplex Switch Ports, Instant Recognizing, Remote Management,
Hardware:
Arris BGW210-700 with IP Passthrough using DHCP-fixed config, WiFi and firewall disabled (basically all the unneeded stuff were disabled), and connected to this TWG-431BR router which in turn is connected to a TP-Link TL-SG1016DE switch
A Dell Latitude e6320 with a built-in Intel 82579LM network card running Ubuntu 20.10 was used for the tests and connected to the TP-Link switch
All firmware are up to date

Config:
The TWG-431BR was configured manually as there was no config wizard to use. WARNING: make sure you enable your IP Filter rules as a bare minimum was set which left DNS open and the majority as closed (see GRC ShieldsUp! comment below)
UPnP is not supported by this router, and make sure you download and read the User Guide especially if you aren't familiar with setting up firewalls for business devices
Actually the star rating should've been 3 due to the default security state of the firewall which was "meh", but I gave it a 4 since Trendnet's tech support answered my questions promptly via emails when I was configuring the firewall

Tests:
GRC ShieldsUp! confirmed everything was secured as closed if the default firewall security was left as it was (WARNING: DNS port was open, and the rest were closed)
GRC ShieldsUp! confirmed everything was secured as stealth if the IP Filter rules were set to deny any incoming requests (HOWEVER, it didn't reply when probed BUT it ran counter probes which I haven't figured out how to disable yet)
DSLReports speed tests gave a C on Bufferbloat, but I couldn't fix it even though it has a bandwidth control QOS which messed up DNS resolution when enabled (download speed was 300-500Mbps, upload speed was around 933Mbps)
AT&T speedtest which used Ookla's gave 15-18ms ping, 0-2ms jitter, download 830-950Mbps, and upload 800-920Mbps

Toor daal is one of the most staple daals being made at my place since I was a kid. So there is a sense of attraction to the taste and flavor as it reminds me of my childhood.
Vedaka has lived up to those expectations as the quality and flavor of the daal was up to the mark. The color and presentation after cooking was rich and as expected.
Amazon regularly hosts sales due to which the groceries are either discounted or offer cashback on every purchase. Buying online has become easy and cheap with this. It sure has made my life easy!
Do try this daal for a nostalgic experience.
