eSCAPE: The 4 Stages of Becoming A Successful Entrepreneur
I read Rich Dad Poor Dad books and that of course educated me a lot, but I think that after you read those books you still have to have a more detailed constrictive book that should guide you through all the obstacles of an entrepreneur, you need someone to push you through the hard times every entrepreneur goes through -not just you..- (and that's not gonna be your boss) so when no one holds you accountable you can hit the snooze button but your business will fail, Anik really goes through the steps of taking away the obstacles so you can succeed, just one example that helped me with a business idea from this book, to stop focusing on many ideas (even it feels more cool..) and only focus on one idea and master it, so that's what I did, and I'm deeply involved in putting up this one business, I would never hold this far if I would be busy with other ideas at the same time. it may sound simple but all those small distractions or things mentioned in this book delays your success and eventually make you failing. so I would definitely recommend this book if you have an urge to become an entrepreneur but don't seem to succeed as you would want to.

Introducing Jazz Masters: Verve Jazz Masters Vol. 20
Introducing Jazz Masters: Verve Jazz Masters Vol. 20
If you want to listen to a huge variety of jazz icons all together in one CD, then you're in for a delight with this outstanding compilation CD. Most of the famous jazz giants are represented here - from the majestic royalties Count Basie and Duke Ellington to the original divas Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Dinah Washington, Nina Simone and Billie Holiday, and not to mention Louis Armstrong, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Stan Getz, Chick Corea, Erroll Garner, Dizzy Gillespie and Wes Montgomery.

Louis Armstrong opens up with Cole Porter's "Just One of Those Things" and invites you for a "trip to the moon on gossamer wings." Sarah Vaughan presents her tantalizing vocals in "Lullaby of Birdland" and shows off her versatility in scat singing. Stan Getz performs a Bossa Nova staple "The Girl From Ipanema" with vocals from the husband-and-wife team of João and Astrud Gilberto.

Bill Evans contributes his delicate touch on the ivories as he plays "Here's That Rainy Day." Every tune that Mr. Evans plays becomes a beautiful masterpiece. Erroll Garner plays his signature composition "Misty" with an enchanting arrangement making it one of the best tracks. Count Basie wraps up this presentation with a beautiful tune that takes you back to the fifties, "April In Paris," a composition by Vernon Duke and Yip Harburg.

The First Lady of Song Ella Fitzgerald does a swinging Rodgers & Hart song, "Everything I've Got" while Dinah Washington sings another beautiful version of Maria Grover and Stanley Adams' "What A Diff'rence A Day Made" (the other fabulous version is found in Diana Ross' charming album, Blue).

"What a diff'rence a day made
Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain

My yesterday was blue, dear
Today, I'm a part of you, dear
My lonely nights are thru, dear
Since you said you were mine

What a diff'rence a day makes
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
Since that moment of bliss

That thrilling kiss
It's heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a diff'rence a day made
And the diff'rence is...you"

With this CD, there is something wonderful to unfold if you're a fan of any of these jazz greats. If you're a fan of all of them, then so much the better. It's very rare to find an incredible collection such as this. It's a rare find...so check this out and enjoy!

Wholeheartedly recommended.

🔫Note: This review will be updated numerous times as the phone ages. And be jealous of my green laser gun.

Service Provider: STRAIGHT TALK
Apple only user (7 years)

BACKGROUND: My iPhone 5s went to poo 💩(For the second time in 7 years I lost an iPhone). Each time the "geniuses" told me my phone was not repairable and I had to buy a new phone. AND both times it was the charge connector that just went completely crap one day. Great. Looking back I guess I was part of the many brainwashed sheep with the one track mind thinking Apple leads all. But in reality, they are stuck in neutral. Since they lost Steve Jobs, no one has stepped up to be that Willy Wonka of cutting edge ideas and showmanship. And its blatantly obvious to me now. Oh and guess what? They now make the headphones use the same failure prone adapter on all new iPhones (meaning you cannot wire charge and listen to headphones), so I finally decided to stop eating rotten Apples. And I decided to Hitchhike a Ride on a Galaxy S9. Now I know you'll say a 5s is older and its comparing apples and oranges (that pun was unintentional🤮...my apoligies), but my friend has an iPhone X and let me try it. It wasn't that much different of an Apple experience. And it was 400 more than this phone. (I apologize for my overt digressions, but phones are a huge investment and I try to make my reviews thorough and whatever the perfect opposite of boring is...I hope.)

Day 1: I'm really $%@!$& nervous. Did I make the right decision? I'm a textbook overthinker. I went without a phone for 9 days trying to decide. And here I am. Waiting on a refurbished Galaxy S9. Finally Delivered. First box is the typical smaller Amazon box. Second inside is a small white box. Very simple worry-free packaging. Inside that box was the phone, A/C adaptor, charge cord, and a paper with quickstart and APN help. Also a card from Amazon saying contact the seller first with a problem blah blah Charlie Brown teacher voice blah blah blah. So I have made a few certified refurbished electronic purchases in the past and they worked out great, so I was not as apprehensive as maybe a refurb greenhorn might be. But listen. Phone is in hand now. And this phone is stunning. Immaculate. I went over it and it looks COMPLETELY brand new. The screen is perfect. Don't be afraid. Jump in the water. Buy refurbished. Ok...so here is my first negative, but its petty really. I bought the "lilac" colored phone because I love light colored purples like lilac and lavender. Only this isn't really either. I'd call this more of a pinker color with a hint of purple, but its still sleek and nice and can be covered up with a case if needed. Ok so physical condition out of the box I'd give a solid grade A+ Now for the SIM card. Again I am a Straight Talk user (looooove them...4 years strong now). My iPhone has been tanked and off for about 9 days. I popped out the SIM card from the rotten phone, popped out the Samsung SIM tray and dropped in the SIM, pushing the tray back flush. Powered the phone on. Without going through every single step, the setup was so easy and seamless. It automatically found my service provider, so I would say this is pretty much as close to plug and play as you can get. So awesome. I am falling hard like Pete for Ariana for this phone...

Well...I've been playing with the phone for a few hours now. I cannot put it down. So many things are infinitely better than Apple. I'm going to list a few and stop the review for Day 1. And if you made it this far, peace and love neighbor. Happy phone hunting. You're beautiful🌞🌜⛱🌚🌟
1. Customization: THEMES! I can't stop trying these out. They change the sounds and wallpapers and App icons and probably other cool stuff I don't realize all at once. They are so cool. Text messages look different. And the wallpapers can be animated. Lock screens can be videos. I am admittedly geeking a little. Android systems let you change soooooooo much. And I am a customization freak. Not only can you choose from hundreds of free and paid themes on the Google Play store, but you can choose from so many different fonts as well (and you can choose from tons for free and money the same way). You can set the order of so many things, it's just the coolest. Oh and here is a great one. For the OCD users like me, who hated when you couldn't delete an apple app, you still have those on Android you cannot delete as well. BUT YOU CAN HIDE THEM!

2. The button clicks are addictive. It feels like you are pushing a button when its the bare screen. I have a screen protector on AND and phone case and it's still extremely responsive.

3. The swiping motions aren't that different from Apple. I'm navigating like a pro. I'm sure there are how-to videos I need to watch to learn all of the shortcuts, but I'm doing just fine.

Ok. Enough for now. I'm jonesing to play with the phone waaaaaay more. Ask any questions you want. I will answer all I can. I will update this review as I see the need.
Peace and Love,
The Muffin Man

Like a charm, find the missing wedding ring for $1,000. The value of so paying. In thick St. Augustine, tall St. Augustine, knowing the general area, I tried all the tricks at night, cutting the grass very low, using a fine rake but no luck. After wasting a lot of time and decided to buy a metal detector (it happened before, even if I rented a detector, it was lost for more than a year before the dog found it and put it with her outside toy), she was A stalking dog, so it makes sense, so much so that she can smell my scent on it. Please go online and learn how to use it, because I was going to give up until I continued to learn YouTube and took some "courses" in less than 5 minutes after "learning the appropriate technology". Looking forward to a treasure hunt now.
Napoleon Dynamite
Napoleon Dynamite
All the schools I attended had somebody like Napoleon: nerdy for certain, often weirdly hostile, but pretty nice if you managed to get to know them. If you ever wondered what it'd be like to be that guy (or girl), Napoleon Dynamite will show you. It will also make you wince, laugh, clap, and maybe even dance for happiness.

Napoleon's home life is odd: he and his 32-year-old brother Kip live in the Middle of Nowhere, Idaho, with their grandmother and her llama, Tina. Kip stays home "chatting online with babes all day" while Napoleon starts another grueling school year, teased by jocks and bullies, and bossed around by Grandma. But this time he makes two new friends, glamor shot photographer Deb and Mexican transplant Pedro Sanchez. At last, his life starts to change for the better--even after Grandma gets in an accident and creepy Uncle Rico comes to stay while she recovers.

Most people will either love or hate this movie. The dialogue is stilted (for effect, it seems), the humor is subtle, and Napoleon's actions are often puzzling. As with his real-life counterparts, he can be hard to figure out. Yet he's always true to himself, sometimes with bad results. But more often they're good, and by the end of the movie, you understand what he's all about.

The best part of the storytelling, for me anyway, was how the events of the movie just unfold, without judgment or explanation. The director, in other words, doesn't try to tell us what to think--and that's what makes Napoleon Dynamite refreshingly, wonderfully different from pretty much any other teen movie you've ever seen. The neutral perspective may be what caused many critics, including the late Roger Ebert, to pan the film. I guess that's understandable for people who are more used to codified teen films like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, where Ferris's perspective dominates so much that he even tells the audience when to go home.

But if you have even a little weirdo in your personality--and unless you're Summer Wheatley, you do--you might like Napoleon. I sure did. Here's hoping that this style of storytelling will continue to grow in popularity and produce more classic movies.
What We Do in the Shadows
What We Do in the Shadows
I ordered the What We Do in the Shadows Blu Ray which claimed to have "over 2 hours of Fang-Tastic features" on May 7th and received it promptly a couple of days later. I was pleased to read the slip-case which promised on a bold yellow banner that it did, indeed, contain those "over 2 hours of Fang-Tastic features!" What slipped my eye at first, however, was the lack of a legitimate Blu Ray logo on the cover. Instead, where the logo appears on the front cover in the photos on Amazon, the disc I received had no logo and simply the words, "Blu-Ray Disc" printed there. When I sat down to watch one of the funniest movies I had ever seen, I was disappointed again when the menu offered only three options: Feature, Trailer and Audio Set-Up. Where did all the Fang-Tastic features go? Like a vampire exposed to sunlight, the features appear to have evaporated into the ether. This is a blatant bait-and-switch. I hope everybody else got the legitimate Blu-Ray they ordered and paid for, because I did not. I have started the return process and have had to settle for ordering the Canadian version from Amazing (fulfilled through Amazon) which is an improvement over this travesty but still lacks some of the main bonus material that is included on various over-seas versions (and which were promised here). Please, if you order this, and receive the version without the Blu Ray logo, don't hesitate to return it immediately.

On the upside, the movie is still great and worth the price. I'm giving this a one-star review because the product received is not the product promised.

Can't wait for Amazon to offer the real Blu Ray again and I'm looking forward to a decent disc release of the current TV series, too. Bat!
Classic With A Twist
Classic With A Twist
This is my favorite monopoly so far. Probably ever!
If I could rate this 20 stars I would ! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

There is a spot in the board called (low blow) when you land here, you now have the chance to steal a deed card (property) from one player, its a cool spot to land on if you need to complete a set and someone else has the deed card you need, or just useful if you’re trying to keep someone from completing a set. But whatch out though, its not so funny once someone else lands there and steals your deed cards lol

There is also an other spot on the board called (cheap shot) when you land here, the player with the least amount of money has to pay you $100! You can see how this is useful right? Well, if you’re going broke here’s $100 for you ☺️

These two spots in the board make the game super fun and not to mention when you collect the money once you land on free parking, players will have to “pay the pool” if landed on that space, money that has been paid to the pool will be placed at the center of the board and collected by the player who lands on free parking.

Such fun twist to the game. If you’re not a fan of monopoly because of the long hours it takes to play, this game will make time fly!

The longest game we have played with this board was 8 hours and i’m telling you we didnt even notice it felt like 30 minutes to us 😂

Home Stone Round Pizza Pan, Non-Stick Coating, Stone, Charcoal, 28 cm
La prima è arrivata con una lievissima infossatura al centro (ma non compromette la funzionalità), poi ne ho acquistate altre 2.

Come sempre per questa tipologia di teglie, prima di utilizzarla per la prima volta, va lavata ed unta con un po' di olio.

Questa misura è perfetta per chi usa il fornetto, (con il mio posso utilizzare solo teglie fino a circa 31 cm. di diametro esterno) e va bene anche per le pizze surgelate. Se può esserti utile, il diametro esterno di questo stampo è 30 cm.

E' realmente antiaderente (l'olio non serve, non si attacca niente) e si lava velocemente.

My toddler enjoys Oreos and these cookie socks are perfect! They’re decently thick and the design/colors are great. We ordered them a little big so she’d have some room to grow into the socks (currently wears a size 6 or 7 in toddler shoes).
Oddkins: A Fable for All Ages
Oddkins: A Fable for All Ages
The Oddkins, which I just discovered, and devoured in less than two days, was published back in 1988. I've read other books by Koontz, but I hadn't realized that he wrote children's stories. Also, I, like many other readers, identify Koontz with horror fiction, but this is a falsehood since Koontz has written many different genres. Nevertheless, Koontz likes to get a bit dark, and the Oddkins is no exception.

We don't really need to speak to the quality of the writing. The Oddkins is very well written, and to say the least, it holds one's attention. You can't help it; you'll keep turning the pages. It's the characters and the fantasy that Koontz created that fascinates. There's Gibbon, who has all the information about the toymaker and the Oddkins history. Then there's Amos, the teddy bear and leader of the group, the alpha, the omega. There's the cavalier cat, Patch, the elephant named, Burl and others. You'll be invested and worried about them right from the start. Along the way, Koontz does not fail to offer some well-meaning morals;

"And if you're always dreaming about being something you're not, then you'll never have time to appreciate the joy and wonder of what you are."
[Butterscotch the dog].

The story is about Isaac Bodkin, a toymaker that imparted magic into his toys. He built in love, thus created life. At his death, his creations must undertake a quest to contact the new toymaker, Colleen Shannon, chosen by Isaac to take his place. Amos, and his fellow Oddkins must travel to the city to find her. Now you begin to worry. How will a bunch of stuffed animals travel to the city? How will they find Colleen?

Here's where the dark comes in - there is another set of toys, led by an evil marionette name Rex. They have been packed away in the sub-cellar of Isaac's toy store, and it isn't until Isaac has died, and Isaac's goodness is weak enough, that they come alive. They, the evil toys, have a goal too. Like the Oddkins they must connect with their new toymaker, a toymaker chosen by the dark one, his name is Nick Jagg. These bad toys want to make children's lives a misery. Rex and his miserable cronies have weapons, and their goal is to destroy the Oddkins before they can reach Colleen.

There is a bit of ripping, tearing and some stuffing leakage, but this is Koontz, remember. The story is a race of good against evil. Isaac can be viewed as God and there is a Satan (the Dark One), who remains in the background and drives the evil characters on.

I don't want to be a spoiler so I won't tell you how the story ends. I will tell you that this is a super fantasy, and I highly recommend it. If you are concerned about children being frightened by the content, I recommend that you read it first - you'll enjoy it.
Summer Pleasures: A 2-in-1 Romance from Nora Roberts
Summer Pleasures: A 2-in-1 Romance from Nora Roberts
Another two in one fron the Queen, Nora Roberts. Second Nature, and its sequel in a sense, One Summer, are classic Roberts. I personally prefered Second Nature, but One Summer is a good story nonetheless. Second Nature revolves around reporter Lee and her quest to get an interview from Hunter Brown. He agrees to the interview as long as she agrees to on a camping expedition with him. The trip turns out to be very funny. Lee is not at all an outdoors person, having come from the New York City if I remember correctly. She struggles to make it, and has a few funny moments, but she does grow as a character as she discovers a new side of herself. Hunter is a good Roberts Hero, and is a good match for Lee. But, she doesn't see it. Naturally there is some conflict, but it does work out. A great story all in all.
One Summer features Bryan and Shade, two photographers going on a quest across America one summer. They have to take pictures that involve America, from its fun loving and happy side, to the seaminess that invades some parts of it. Along the way, the both learn about each other, and fall in love. This was the first story that I had ever read that used Bryan as a girls name, and it took me awhile to get used to it. I did like this story though. Both of these stories are great, and I like how they are repackaged as one, a great benefit to any Nora Roberts fan.

Killoe: A Novel
Killoe: A Novel
I usually don't rate or review Louis L'Amour Books. Not because I don't like them -- to the contrary. I have never read one that I didn't enjoy. For me, they are entertaining, escapist fiction, with a little history, romance, and Americana thrown in. It's just that, for me it's hard to differentiate them. They are all fun to read, I know what I'm getting, and I look forward to a new (for me) one, as I haven't yet read them all. But, sooner or later I will.

So, in that context I usually give them 5 stars, because they are what they are. So why 4 stars for this one? Well it was good, readable, etc., except I think it ended about 20 pages too soon. The romantic thread wasn't resolved and the "eye on the glorious future" language missing. Still a good, fun, read. Just not as satisfying an ending as usual.
Witch & Wizard: The Manga, Vol. 3 (Witch & Wizard: The Manga (3))
Witch & Wizard: The Manga, Vol. 3 (Witch & Wizard: The Manga (3))
The final manga(if you can call it that) is quite simply: Closure. there are some pages that will grab your attention more than others;especially the first 7 or so, but if you've read other mangas like this than you know the song and dance.

Artwork: decent to above average...not saying this is bad.the artist illustrating the book keeps things on a good level of overall quality including backgrounds,sizing of side effects and text bubbles and facial/character designs.one noteworthy thing i would like to say is that for an American(?)/western artist, it handles the feeling of showing motion a bit better than most works.

Story: taken from a book and put into a manga-like format the story took(most likely) the major points of the plot then ignored the rest; at the cost of most of the book's possible originality. the book along with the other 2 beforehand, follow standard formula with 'magic is actually real' plots: a finds out secret from loved ones, loved ones are taken/disappear, villain tries to take over the world,yata yata. the story as it is good,but they really should have allowed more bits and pieces from the book(reading book) carry over to the manga,even if it took the artist a bit longer to finish and the price to go up a little bit. as it is though, its good but not fantastic.

Aside from a slight amount of melancholy, the manga is enjoyable,and a decent way to spend some quiet time alone. it is visually sound and while not completely original,does have it charm..though a bit corny. with my personal praise for the artist and my overall enjoy both with this particular book and the series as a whole: I recommend.
Roald Dahl's Even More Revolting Recipes
Roald Dahl's Even More Revolting Recipes
I own this book along with the orignial Revolting Recipes. While the premise of the book is lots of fun and may encourage kids to get into the kitchen, the recipes themselves are quite disapointing. None that I've made have turned out well. Magic Green Crystal: into the garbage. The Whipple-Scrumptios Fudgemallow Delight was a pain to make and it tasted awful. Many of the recipes have missing or vauge directions, such as Pishlets' "Spoon into the baking pan and spread evenly", but they don't say what size baking pan nor how thin to spread the mixture. Do I use an 8x8 pan? A 10x17 pan? There's also a lot of recipes that I'm just unwilling to try because I'm suspicious of the ingredient combinations, such as Plushnuggets (puff pastry with bananas, maple syrup and OLIVE OIL). Other recipes just seem impractical for their ingredients (amber sugar crystals??) or portions (Bean's Cider: 4 apples, pureed and strained to make 1 mug cider). It's fun to read through though, which is why it does get 3 stars, and may very well entice a reader to go pick up one of Dahl's other books from which the recipes are based.

The U.P. Trail: a Novel
The U.P. Trail: a Novel
What can one say about the greatest undertaking ever devised by man--the construction of the transcontinental railroad in the 1860's--and its exposition in story form by the greatest writer of the American West, Zane Grey. Historically accurate from beginning to end, descriptively unmatched by any other writer, and filled with characters enough to fill a mini-series. Of course, there is love found and love lost and then found again; it wouldn't be Zane Grey without that! But beyond the romance, the reader will find the heroism, the strength, the men and women with the kind of fortitude and vision that it took to make this country what it is today. And yes, there is a tragic side to the book. The passing of a life-style; the passing of a people--the Indian; for the progress of the railroad with its technology and its ability to bring huge numbers of people into the country meant the destruction of the Indian. I would recommend this book whole-heartedly for anyone--historian, or pleasure reader. Also available in hardback is the unexpurgated version, Union Pacific, by Five Star Western which came out in 2009 telling the story the way Zane Grey "really" wrote it.
The Two
The Two
I first read this book approximately twenty-five years ago, when it was first published. I remember that I had very much enjoyed the glimpse that it offered into the fascinating lives of nineteenth century conjoined twins, Chang and Eng, the original "Siamese Twins". Having recently read the novel, "Chang and Eng", by Darin Strauss, my interest in these twins was piqued, and I decided to re-read this book.

Time has not diminished the capacity of this biography to captivate and hold the interest of the reader. Truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction. The authors provide the reader with a well-researched look at the interesting and unusual lives led by conjoined twins, Chang and Eng. Born in Siam, which is now known as Thailand, on a houseboat on the Mekong River in 1811, Chang and Eng were conjoined at the chest by a band of fleshy cartilage. It was this small band of flesh that would bind them in life, making the two as one.

Being forced to be together by their conjoinment, even in those most intimate of moments, did not prevent Chang and Eng from living full lives. Leaving Siam as eighteen year old adolescents, Chang and Eng were to travel to America under the care and guidance of a Captain Coffin, who saw the commercial possibilities inherent in Chang and Eng's conjoinment and fully intended to exploit them. In America, people clamored to view Chang and Eng, as they were considered curiosities. They would also travel abroad to Europe, where they were to cause a sensation. Chang and Eng were the international celebrities of their day.

When they reached majority, Chang and Eng disassociated themselves from Captain Coffin and his business partners and became their own men. They took charge of their own destinies and later became American citizens, adopted the surname of Bunker, married two sisters, Adelaide and Sarah Yates, collectively had twenty-one children, and settled down in North Carolina, where they became slave-owning, gentleman farmers. Still, they did not wholly give up touring and exhibiting themselves for profit. In later, leaner years, they would do so with some of their children in tow as part of the exhibit.

As they grew older, their togetherness seemed to cast a pall over their lives, as Chang was a more phlegmatic sort of personality, while Eng was much more contemplative in nature. Moreover, Chang took to heavy drinking, and though Eng abhorred it, there was little he could do about it. He was forced, therefore, to suffer the consequential effects and indignities of Chang's drinking. These personal differences would cause them both to mull over the possibility of separation. There was, however, little medical support for such, except in the event of life or death, as surgical procedures were still quite primitive in those days.

Chang and Eng would die in their early sixties. Chang died first, while Eng, who was otherwise healthy, would die within hours, possibly from fright and shock at being tethered to the lifeless body of his brother. As they were together in life, so were they together in death. They left behind two grieving widows, a multitude of children and grandchildren, and an unending, world-wide interest in their lives. Never before and never since, has a set of conjoined twins so captured the imagination of the general public more than Chang and Eng, the original Siamese twins.

This is a very well-written, well-researched biographical treatment of the lives of Chang and Eng. Their lives were, indeed, fascinating, and those who enjoy biographies will find much to like about this book. It is also an intriguing look at nineteenth century life in the context of the lives of Chang and Eng. The book also has sixteen pages of wonderful black and white photographs and illustrations, which will add to the reader's enjoyment of this book.

Naruto, Vol. 63: World of Dreams
I received the book on the release date and was done with it about a day later! This book reveals HUGE amounts of information about the mysterious man behind the mask claiming to be Madara #2 (even though he's not). After his identity is uncovered the manga spirals into straight insanity...a good type of insanity. It then stats to talk about what happened to the man behind the mask and why he's doing the things he's doing, shows the aftermath of the gokage vs madara, and then continues on with Naruto's battle against the masked man...who is then joined by an EXTREMELY powerful ally!!! Then it ends....I've been anxious to read what happens next, and luckily the next volume comes out tomorrow!!!!!!

Case Closed, Vol. 20
Case Closed, Vol. 20
This is the second appearance of Kaitou Kid (known as Phantom Thief Kid in the English version), and this case takes on a darker tone.

Serena is invited to a gathering of an online magic group, which takes place high in a snow covered mountain. She brings Rachel along with her as she sets out to meet her 'dream' man for the first time, but trouble soon follows as the group gets snowed in with a murder bent on revenge.

This case not only has many of the great moments that make up a good Case Closed file (interesting characters, unique methods of murder and discovery), but it also takes a deeper look into the man behind the mask of Kaitou Kid, and his relationship with Conan.

In addition, you get the added bonus of the second case, with another great returning character, Yoko Okino.

The only thing I would comment on is that this product (as I sent it back) was because of subtitles. These are in japaneese and think it would be far more clearer to indicate this on the front page of the items description and not in the small print. Also it is fair to say that when the item arrives, The packaging it is not as photographed as in the picture advertised. It is not in english.and unless you speak the language you would never read it. didnt keep the product so cant comment on the actual items quality.
Celtic Empire (Dirk Pitt Adventure Book 25)
Celtic Empire (Dirk Pitt Adventure Book 25)
As per usual Dirk Pitt adventures, I am enjoy the going back to earlier times to set the stage for the adventure. And while the book by and large was good reading, it was also lacking. I don't think this is the first time that young Dirk got hooked up with a female who ended up feeding their whereabouts to the villains. And the action, while good, I don't know how to explain this well, it was also, missing something. My only beef was when the submersible painter was torn off the mini sub and Pitt picked it up before getting back in. Would love it if someone would tell me what the hell it is, as google search turned up zilch. And I have to get this other thing in, most of the time your research is pretty damn good, believable whether it is true or not. Years ago, in the first book that Clive Cussler and his son Dirk wrote together, a reference was made to a 24 yr old MSGT at Kunsan AB, Korea (I am familiar with the base btw, I spent 5 years there), nothing wrong EXCEPT a person, even if it is possible now, would have one hell of a time trying to make E7 in 6 years or less in the Air Force. All criticism aside, will more than likely be back for book 26, if I am still kicking.

I bought this when it was on offer at £25 and it felt like great value for money. Each of the towers had unique features to it, which kept the build interesting and adds playability for those that want to interact with the finished model.

I felt the quiditch hoops section took up more space than it really needed to, but appreciate it could be quite fun for those that play with the set. However the design was flexible enough that I could simply unclip the towers and arranged them how I wanted alongside the Great Hall.

At full price it may be a tad steep for what you get, but that's kinda what to expect when buying branded Lego items.

Thought I was getting a great deal, but it doesn’t even work. If you want a real magic wand then look elsewhere. I called customer support and they pretended like real magic wands don’t exist. That’s all I can really say right now due to pending legal matters. What I can say is I won’t be buying any more of this company’s false wands. Fool me once...fake wand for me...fool me twice...that’s two fake wands for me.

It was great for taking graduation pictures though. Looks good. Great weight and balance.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (in Simplified Chinese)
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (in Simplified Chinese)
I got this for christmas 2004 from my parents. I had read all the Harry Potter Books already, having got into them just after the release of 'Goblet of Fire'. I was lucky enough, therefore, to read the first four books back to back, and like many others, had an agonising wait for the 'Order of the Phoenix'. The first two films helped to quench the Harry Potter thirst a little but I am now counting the days until the release of 'The Half-Blood Prince'. The Stephen Fry readings of the first five books have been invaluable. They have allowed me to relive the magic again but in a whole new way. He really is a genius, the way he brings JKR's characters to life. It took me until late May to hear all the CDs, having started the marathon just after Christmas Day. How many of your Christmas presents were still giving you joy that late into 2005. Once again I feel bereft. I have to content myself with hugging and stroking the tin and looking at the empty CD pockets where I intend to stash the 17 CDs from the 6th audio book, to be released in August 2005 (there are about 20 spare pockets). Still, the hole will soon be filled with the release of Book 6 and with the new film due out in November, I am sure I will survive.
The Bowery: The Strange History of New York's Oldest Street
The Bowery: The Strange History of New York's Oldest Street
Author Stephen DeVillo has written quite a history of the famous (infamous)? Bowery located on the lower east side of Manhattan Island. The author goes back to the days of peg-leg Peter Stuyvesant up to the present-day with a renovation of sorts that has taken place. The Bowery was known as the street of forgotten souls where individuals who has lost their way in life ended up as derelicts. Author DeVillo gives history between the wars between the Dead Rabbits and the Plug Uglies, the days of Monk Eastman and the Five Point thugs, and other drug infested individuals that found a home on the Bowery.

The author gives interesting anecdotes regarding the origination of expressions such as "flea market" which mentions that it originated in Paris with the sale of used mattresses with the word "mattress" being changed to "market." Also of interest is the chapter on tattoos and why they got them. Sailors got them as a sign of manliness to demonstrate their ability to withstand the pain of having a tattoo imprinted on their body. Some got a tattoo of Jesus on their back in hopes they wouldn't be subject to a flogging. It didn't work and neither did the belief that a tattoo would cure syphilis.

The Bowery also became the site for freak shows of one kind or another to take place. Emphasis is also given to the history of Bowery dives such as McGurk's Suicide Hall and its infamous past. Laws now cannot deny city parks to the homeless and many who once lived in the Bowery now have found other places of residence. Famous individuals such as noted songwriter Stephan Foster spent their final days in the Bowery unable to adjust to the problems that life has thrown at them. Others such as singers Irving Berlin, Eddie Cantor, and Jimmy Durante got their start as singing waiters in the Bowery.

The book contains two sections of eight photos each. I rate my four star rating on my interest level. However, I feel the author did his homework well enough to rate five stars.
Astounding Analog Reader Vol. 2
Astounding Analog Reader Vol. 2
The two volumes of this collection constitute one of my favorite science fiction anthologies; a real shame that it's out of print now. It's not that this is a perfect selection of stories (what anthology can boast that?)----rather, it gives a real sense of what it must have been like to be an sf fan back in the late thirties, and grow up reading Astounding, the leading magazine in the field for quite a while. (I realize that nostalgia for a time before I was born could be considered a form of sickness, but let's leave that alone right now.) It starts when John W. Campbell, jr. assumed the editorship, and follows the development of the magazine through the war and up into the early sixties, when Campbell changed its name to Analog. The stories are presented chronologically, 1937-46 in volume one, and 1947-65 in volume two. The intoductory notes steep you in the feel of those days. And aside from the historical and fan/anthropology aspects this is just a damn good anthology. Sure, we've got "Nightfall," "City," "First Contact," "The Little Black Bag," "The Cold Equations," and "Call Me Joe" which have all been anthologized ad infinitum, but there are some rarer gems here as well. "Farewell To the Master" by Harry Bates, which was the basis of the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still. "By His Bootstraps" the wickedly clever time-paradox story by Heinlein (under the MacDonald pen name) which is perhaps so hard to find because it doesn't happen to fall within his Future History series. Theodore L. Thomas's masterful "The Weather Man," perhaps the quintessential early-sixties Analog story. I wish that they'd chosen "Basic Right" by Eric Frank Russell rather than "The Waitabits" but you can't have everything. This should be in every science fiction reader's library, whether or not they consider themselves an Astounding/Analog reader.

Mobile Pixels Trio Max Portable Monitor for Laptops, 14'' Full HD IPS Screen, USB C/USB A Dual or Triple Displays,Windows/OS/Android/Nintendo Switch
Looked around quite a bit before I made this purchase. Need to work from home from time to time. Using 2 monitors is key. I use windows.

Received it and set it up. Despite using the USB C it’s not consistently connecting automatically. Have to disconnect and connect cable multiple times. It keeps saying ‘please wait’ on a black screen.

Easy to extend screen to other display using instructions, making it useful for my work. Chose this model because it was largest available (14in) but still wish it were larger.

Magnets aren’t strong. Must use the plastic bar on top of laptop to hold screen up. Screen casing feels very fragile so need to be careful when putting it back in. Concerning for longevity.

If can get it to connect successfully each time this product will be ideal for what I need. Suspect for others as well who are looking to use this in same manner.

***If seller sees this please advise if there’s some step right after connecting monitor to laptop that would support immediate display without my having to plug and unplug several times. Would update stars if this weren’t an issue right now.

As soon as I saw this little sticky pad I knew I had to buy it for my mum.

Her memory isn't what it use to be and she is always writing things down so she doesn't forget to do things like buy milk, go to the post office ect.

This little sticky pad brings a bit of fun to the writing down process and it was very well recieved.

It's the same size as your average sticky note pad. I have taken a photo of it next to a pen to give you a realistic image of the true size.

It isn't the most 'sticky' pad so I would be mindful that if you are planning to stick these on walls around the house that they might not stay up for long.

I sprayed this liberally on my pillow last night before bed and by the time I had brushed my teeth and removed my makeup the smell had gone. Tried spraying even more tonight, the smell lasted slightly longer but my pillow was quite wet and now it has dried the smell has gone. Ordering a slightly more expensive one to see if any better.

VIVO Freestanding Dual Computer Monitor Mount, Fully Adjustable VESA Stand with Base for Two (2) Ultra Wide Screens up to 38" (STAND-V102AF)
I purchased this for my work from home office. I have two 32' displays that I mounted. First, let me say I used two HDMI televisions with PC support they weigh about as much if not less than a standard 32' monitor. So I'll list about my pro and cons here:

PROS
If you're looking to mount two monitors and whatever you do doesn't really require real changes in your viewing this would work, it's sturdy enough

The desk clamp is large and easily fit the thickness of my desk's tabletop. Once, it's tightened it stays in place

CONS
1.I've used quit a few monitor mounts and have one in my office at work. Typically you simply have to attach the mounting plates to the standard screws on the back of the monitor and the monitor snaps on the mount in some way. NOT so with this mount the plates attach to the monitor but then you have slide them onto the mounting arm which is then secured with a small cap screw. One of which crumpled and broke off applying very light pressure. THe monitors immediately droop over and the tenstion screw is hidden by plastic caps, not a very good design

2.The stand is only capable of horizontal and lateral adjustments. If you want to adjust the height, you have to completely remove the support bolts for the arms, lower or raise the height, then reinsert the bolts. If you're trying to do that by yourself, good luck, you most likely will have to unmount the monitors to make that adjustment...A HUGE PAIN!!!! If you're looking for that sweet spot to get your monitors at that perfect position so that you're not looking up or staring down....DO NOT BUY THIS MOUNT.

3.I've got two different monitors, one curved and the other a flat 32' inch. As you can see from the picture. The mounting panel for the curved monitor is lower at the base of the monitor while the flat is more toward the center. Because the mounting arms do not adjust independently vertically, the misaligned by a wide amount. Not a big deal but it drives me crazy

4.Lastly, if you mounting these in a place where your space is a little limited, these are again a pain and poorly designed. The mounting arms are jointed to allow them to assumably support and proper spacing adjustments for two wide screen monitors. The problem again is if you want to say push these monitors together to get a seamless workspace AND your table needs to be flush against the wall, with your monitors pushed together, the arms form a sort of "M" shape which means only the points of the M are flush, if you need to adjust them any further, you'd have to move the entire desk forward, which I personally don't want to do.

So all in all, not saying this monitor does do what it says, but the poor design has me hunting for something a bit more adjustable.

In der Erwartung hier einen hochwertigen Tee zu erhalten, bin ich mega enttäuscht. Das Aussehen des Tees nach Öffnen des Beutels sah zunächst vielversprechend aus. Aber mit dem Aufguss und der anschließenden Trinkprobe war ich ziemlich schnell angewidert von dem Geschmack: Von den angegebenen Früchten ist Null-Komma-Nichts zu schmecken, nur ein scheußlicher Geschmack, der leicht an Plastik erinnert. Ganz ehrlich: Dagegen schmeckt daselbst der Tee von ALDI tausendfach besser.
