Programming the Microsoft Bot Framework: A Multiplatform Approach to Building Chatbots (Developer Reference)
Programming the Microsoft Bot Framework: A Multiplatform Approach to Building Chatbots (Developer Reference)
Excellent book! I heartily recommend the book to anyone who wants to delve into this innovative technology from Microsoft, starting from the basics and reaching advanced topics such as the creation of personalized control channels or the integration with voice, mail, SMS and web services, as well as with Microsoft Cognitive Services, which empower modern applications based on Artificial Intelligence.

Unfortunately, two of the APIs on which the code examples included in the book are based, Wine.com and Groove, were retired by their respective creators after the book was sent to print. But this fact, in my humble opinion, does not impact at all the understanding of the underlying concepts, which are presented in a clear and didactic manner. Anyways, the author has rewritten all that sample source code using dummy data and the Spotify API (which is the Groove replacement, at the end of the day) and made it available from his blog.
Making Things Talk: Using Sensors, Networks, and Arduino to See, Hear, and Feel Your World
Making Things Talk: Using Sensors, Networks, and Arduino to See, Hear, and Feel Your World
Recently updated to a third edition, "Making Things Talk" is *not* about creating objects that make vocal sounds or music. This well-written and heavily illustrated how-to book is focused on making interactive devices that can connect and send data to--or receive data from--servers and transform data into useful actions or reactions. It shows how to use an inexpensive Arduino microcontroller and some senors and networks to "see, hear, and feel your world."

Take, for example, the problem of leaving a cat at home alone all day while you are at work. A connected cat mat can send you an email each time your cat steps onto that mat. And the homemade, network-connected mat also can cause a photo to be sent from your computer's camera, so you can see what the cat is doing. Other projects in the book include a digital compass, an ultrasonic distance ranger, a toxic vapor sensor (with unique alert), doing barcode recognition using a webcam, plus more. Importantly, the author, Tom Igoe, also devotes a lot of text and illustrations to explaining "the concepts that underlie networked objects," and he provides "recipes to illustrate each set of concepts. Each chapter contains instructions for building working projects that make use of the new ideas introduced in that chapter."

The author does not have a cavalier attitude about "the network of things" and the constant collection of consumer data now becoming more pervasive. Indeed, "[T]he Internet has become a less innocent place....", he cautions. And he emphasizes that we need to know more about "who the custodians of [our] data are, what they are collecting, and what the terms of our relationship with those custodians include. Unfortunately, that level of transparency has not yet been realized in the devices and services we're enthusiastically inviting into our lives."

Igoe also contends that it is "now necessary that anyone using the internet must have a basic understanding of the security tools that make it a safer place to conduct our activities." He adds: "I want you to know how these devices [in "Making Things Talk" and beyond] convert your actions into data, how they transmit that data to servers, and where they send those readings. For that reason, I haven't used many of the cloud-based data services for connected devices in this book. The internet and Worldwide Web are built on a number of open and collaboratively derived standards like the Internet Protocol (IP) and the Hypertext Transport Protocol (HTTP), and there is value in knowing those standards before you start using cloud-based services that rely on them."

The projects in the book require a number of tools, devices and electronics parts. But none of them individually are expensive. You also will use "a number of different software tools and programming languages," including Processing (based on Java), and JavaScript.

If you want to work with microcontroller electronics, digital sensors and networking devices, you can find plenty to like and plenty to learn from in "Making Things Talk, 3rd Edition."

(My thanks to O'Reilly Media for sending an advance reading copy for review.)
Steve Jobs: Thinking Differently (A Real-Life Story)
Steve Jobs: Thinking Differently (A Real-Life Story)
Patricia Lakin did an amazing job writing this book. It starts at when he was born to after he died. I learned things that I never knew before. At first when I learned that I needed to read a non fiction book for school from a list we got, I was really bummed out. So I got this book and started reading it. When I finished reading for the day, I was already half way done with it! That's how good it was. It made a kid like me who didn't want to read over the summer read the entire book in a few days!
Professional Idiot: A Memoir
Professional Idiot: A Memoir
I'm not much of a "reader". I enjoy quick articles in magazines and have the kind of ADD that won't allow me to stick to a story day after day. It usually takes me a month or two to get through a novel and I quickly lose interest.

This book, however, I finished in 2 days. I read it every chance I could. It was such an easy read, it was true and honest but not boasting, and Steve-O is right to the point with his stories with just the right amount of details.

I learned so much about Steve-O that confirmed that this guy is a genuine good guy.

Great book and I would highly recommend this to ANYONE, not just Jackass fans. Kids who have attention problems, kids with a insanely rich dad that is not around all the time, kids with an alcoholic in the family, kids who are constantly moving from place to place, people who can't seem to find others who understand them, people dealing with a dying family member, alcohol and drug addicts could all relate to this book (I could easily go on and on about who could relate to the problems Steve-O was challenged with throughout his whole life).

Steve-O's book has a theme of survival in so many situations, but mainly the message that someone could get out of this is the value of perseverance. Believing in yourself when nobody else does. Never giving up on yourself even though things don't work out the first, second, or tenth time.

Get this book.

John D. Rockefeller: The Original Titan - Insight and Analysis into the Life of the Richest Man in American History: Business Biographies and Memoirs - Titans of Industry, Book 3
I bought this book partly because I wanted to read a biography of John Rockefeller that wasn’t completely biased against him. This biography is quite readable, and seems to be written at a middle school level. But don’t let the reading level fool you: this is a very informative biography that doesn’t ignore some of the underhanded methods Rockefeller used to achieve success, despite the author’s sympathetic view of the oil tycoon. Other biographies delve into Rockefeller’s life in much greater detail, but this book remains a very good introduction to John Rockefeller’s life and career.

The Blackout Experiments
The Blackout Experiments
What a poorly-made thing. I'm still not sure if it was a faux-doc or a real piece, but it doesn't really matter. Nothing that happens in the "Blackout" experience seems particularly terrifying, just annoying, as are most of the subjects we're asked to care about. If you want something similar, go watch the Dark Tourist episode where he visits McKamey Manor, and then fall down the rabbit hole of McKamey's YouTube channel. His homemade "warning" videos are WAY more convincing and terrifying than anything here.

That said, I have seen no other mention of the fact that one of the film's volunteers is ALLISON THE INHALANT ADDICT "WALKING ON SUNSHINE" GIRL FROM INTERVENTION. This was pretty much the only interesting point for me, and she doesn't get nearly enough screen time.
Doctor Strange: Damnation The Complete Collection
Doctor Strange: Damnation The Complete Collection
This is my introduction to Dr. Strange, I wasn't sure where to start with Dr. Strange but seeing Donny Cates attached to this collection as I loved what he has done for Venom and seeing a complete miniseries collection sold me on this and seemed like a fun place to jump in, and it definitely is.

This complete collection collects Damnation #1-4, Dr. Strange #386-#389, Damnation: Johnny Blaze - Ghost Rider #1, Iron Fist #78-80 and Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #15-17 and is in that order. I have seen that many reviews are unhappy with the layout and in my opinion it was a no win situation as someone will want it in reading order but one may only want to read Damnation or Dr. Strange, regardless there will be page flipping regardless. As for the reading order, the comic itself includes a chart to show the correct reading order however it differs from what I have seen online but I'm not sure if it's the correct reading order or if it's the order they released I'll be including a picture of the chart included.

I should mention that despite not reading anything prior to this I didn't feel thrown in, the only thing it would've done is explain why Las Vegas is in ruins. It perhaps is worth a read as the series is quite good but if you're like me and just want this collection no worries.

The story begins with some heroes mourning the destruction of Las Vegas only for Strange to arrive and use magic powers to bring back all of Vegas from Hell, only problem is that a part of Hell came back with Vegas. Enter Hotel Inferno, operated by none other than Mephisto. The residents of Vegas are now turned into demons and suffer from even the tiniest of sin. Wong gathers a new band of already damned souls dubbed the Midnight Son's to save Vegas from Mephisto and his band of sinned super heroes turned into Ghost Riders.

The story and artwork were fantastic, and I'm glad the cast wasn't overly large despite not having equal panel time, despite me being inexperienced with most of these characters like Blade and Moon Knight, and Man-Thing's blatant rip off of DC's Swamp Thing it was an appropriate cast. I feel the weakest point of this collection for me was Iron Fist, perhaps it's because I'm not familiar with the story or lore and perhaps old fans may love it but for me it didn't feel like it fit in as well as the other stories just because it had demons. Each characters issues felt like it added an element and different perspective throughout this event and I liked them all except Iron Fist but that's personal preference. Regardless if you're considering this collection regardless of how you plan on reading it I think you'll enjoy it and it's easily worth a purchase regardless of your experience with Dr. Strange, don't miss out.

Hopefully you found this review helpful and happy reading.

This one was by far the coolest and best one out of all the other Artfx Premier statues I have bought thus far. I have almost all of them now. The rocks that light up with a usb cord sets it apart from all the others. Paint job and likeness is unbelievable. Highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed.

Breville BOV450PP11 11" Non-Stick Pizza Pan, Black
Really like this pizza pan for using with a toaster oven. There is no mess dripping into the oven while using this pan, it's easy to clean. Beware when you remove from oven it's slippery - but that's what helps make cleaning easy. Also instead of adding time to pizza baking instructions, I've found I need to subtract about 25 degrees in temperature and 2 or more minutes to keep it from getting overdone!

Santa's Twin
Santa's Twin
Dean Koontz is my favorite writer, so despite my daughter only being 2, I had to get this for her. It has gorgeous illustrations and rhyming text. Santa's twin brother decides to tie Santa up and ruin Xmas. He's tired of being outshined by his brother, Santa and decides to make everyone hate him instead. He lands in a house and leaves horrible presents and ruins their house but his plans are foiled by the two sisters who live there. They overhear what he's done and decide they are the only ones who can save Santa. They rescue Santa and scold his evil twin. Why what would your mother think, they ask him and he realizes the err of his ways. This book is fun reading with wacky descriptions and imaginable ryhmes. The last page asks you if you noticed all the snowmen hiding on each page. They watch over us and report back to Santa. How else would Santa know who's been naughty or nice. My sister and mother in law had a blast trying to find the snowmen. This is a wonderful Xmas tale thet kids will delight in. It isn't scary at all, it's more comical.

Love Nora Roberts and her stories under , J D Robb. Enjoying the stories in First Snow very much. Thing only thing I did not like was the voice the reader Christina Traister used for Michael. Had a hard time listening to it.

My favorite reader is Susan Ericksen . She did a fantastic job on the J D Robb ,,, In Death, series. The way she brought out each and every character is just great.
Dragon Ball Z, Vol. 19: Death of a Warrior
Dragon Ball Z, Vol. 19: Death of a Warrior
Yaaaaaay, the stupid Cell storyline is over!!

In the fight for the fate of the world, Cell goes to full power but he’s no match for Son Gohan who’s on some kind of mega-super-hyper-steroids Saiyan level. So Cell, being a sore loser, does something desperate and not one but two main characters die as a result. The world is saved though!

I took a week off of Dragon Ball Z thinking that maybe I was overdoing it and that’s why I wasn’t enjoying the series as much as I usually do, but, after this book, I think it’s just the whole Cell/androids storyline that’s been boring me.

The tension and excitement with Gohan and Cell’s final battle just wasn’t there. Gohan’s so impossibly powerful that there’s no challenge even though Cell keeps coming back at him. It becomes tedious to read as you know Gohan’s gonna beat him, Akira Toriyama’s just drawing it out to fill up a book. And the way Gohan beats Cell once and for all was totally uninspired.

Then – the deaths. First off, the little intro paragraph by Toriyama that prefaces each book? It contains a major spoiler so you know the character that’s going to die about 100 pages before it actually happens – nice one, Toriyama (though the cover is kind of a giveaway too)!

But though it’s a major character, death in Dragon Ball is even more of a joke than in superhero comics from Marvel/DC. The instant that character dies, they appear in the afterlife, totally intact, with a halo above their heads. Death is more of a minor inconvenience that any kind of finality!

There’s also the coda where Trunks goes back to the future to defeat the androids and Cell, which only further underlines the mess Toriyama made with the whole time-travel trope. If Cell died in the past, what would he be doing in the future? Because there are multiple timelines co-existing at the same time, blah blah, blah, and I can’t even be bothered explaining it again – that part of the story was simply complete and utter NONSENSE!

So the big fight is dull and unexciting, the deaths are ineffective in eliciting any sense of sadness because nobody really dies in this series, and the only thing I felt when the book was over was relief that this arc was over and done with!

Volume 19 is Toriyama on autopilot, tying up loose ends and setting things up one last time for the final arc: Buu. I’m praying to Shenlong that the series ends on a high and the next six books are much better than the last six have been!

TheraBreath Fresh Breath, Oral Rinse, Mild Mint, 16 fl oz (473 ml)
I'm not going to say this is a waste of money, doesn't work, etc. because not everyone has the same results with this sort of product.Personally, this rinse did nothing for me. It tastes fine, doesn't burn, and might freshen the breath of someone who doesn't have bad breath in the first place. I, however, have suffered with terrible halitosis, dry mouth, and lingering bad taste in my mouth for years. When brushing after every meal, flossing, tongue scrapers, mouthwashes, gum, mints,and anything else I tried didn't help, I just gave up. Recently, I started rinsing with hydrogen peroxide a few times a week, and problem solved.The moral of the story: if you're looking at this as a cure for nasty breath, don't bother.
Butterfly Dreams [Japanese Edition] (Volume # 2)
Butterfly Dreams [Japanese Edition] (Volume # 2)
伊之助が松本良順の要請を受けて長崎に行き、良順の手伝いを天才的な働きでこなすところから始まるが、当時の社会的、道徳的な行動ができず、オランダの軍医ポンぺや留学生にも嫌われ、長崎を出て平戸に行くところまでを描いている。また、松本良順の献身的な医学活動への情熱やそれを理解してくれた周りの人々との関係も描かれており、とても面白く読めた。伊之助に感情移入しているせいもあるが、社会的な順応ができない人への憐憫の情が起こってくる。私の周りにも伊之助ほどではないにしても、非凡な能力を持つものが社会への順応ができないというケースも散見され、時代を超えて共通しているのを感じる。
We All Fall Down
We All Fall Down
I wish to thank NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for this ARC in return for an honest review. I was not aware of any current medical mysteries, a category I used to enjoy. The author, Daniel Kalla , is an emergency room doctor, who puts his medical and scientific knowledge, as well as research into the epidemiology of the Black Death into a convincing narrative.

The book was well written with believable and interesting characters. I sometimes felt a lack of connection with the protagonists, and an emotional detachment from the well-described events when I should have been feeling suspense and dread.

Dr. Alana Vaughn, an infectious disease expert working for NATO, has been summoned to Genoa by a former lover and co-worker in dangerous and disease-ridden trouble-spots overseas. She has been requested to observe and help diagnose a female patient at the hospital where he is presently working. They are horrified to discover that the woman has a deadly form of pneumatic plague, a disease not prevalent for centuries. The woman worked at the demolition site of an 800-year-old monastery. Soon other patients have been admitted with the lethal illness and are succumbing to it

There is a scramble to produce a vaccine, but any prevention or cure will come too late for the earliest victims. If the source of the infection is not found soon and contained, the results will be catastrophic. Millions could die. Alana is joined in the investigation by another disease expert, Byron Menke, from WHO, the agency where Alana previously worked. Alana suspects that the disease had its origin in bioterrorism. Byron has his doubts and plans to search for Patient Zero before the plague spreads and causes Europe-wide death unseen since the Black Death.

A patient in Rome has contacted the sickness, and soon people are been admitted to a hospital in Naples. Some are presenting symptoms of pneumatic or in bubonic plague. The investigation is drawn back to the remains of the ancient monastery. There Alana uncovers a medieval manuscript which may provide clues to the new potential epidemic. A doctor in the 1300s kept a journal of his observations and experiences at the time the Black Death was raging across Europe and decimating the monastery and surrounding area. His writings had been preserved in the monastery library.

The chapters alternate between the events and thoughts of the doctor in this centuries-old document and the frantic rush of the present day investigators to find the cause of the plagues’ reappearance, and the hurry by medical researchers to invent an effective preventive serum and cure. Terrified crowds during the Black Death scapegoated Jews, blaming them for poisoning water sources. In the present day, some people start reacting to rumours that Moslem terrorists have unleashed the disease in an act of terrorism.

Alana and Byron are horrified to learn that the plague is being carried towards Asia, which would result in worldwide death of cataclysmic proportions. Is it possible to stop it in time?

This was a fascinating and informative story of how epidemiologists and scientists in medical labs react to previously unknown new disease outbreaks, and to diseases which have been dormant for centuries. This should keep readers informed and riveted to the book. Recommended to anyone who enjoys a gripping medical mystery.
Biggest Word Book Ever
Biggest Word Book Ever
When my children were little, they're now 29 and 31 years old, they would read this book time and time again. They absolutely loved it. In fact, we still have that original copy with the frayed edges and 'loved' pages. When thinking of a gift for my friend's toddler (18 months) I was delighted to find that this book still exists. It arrived in perfect shape if later than expected as the original package had to be returned before delivery due to damage. Seeing it brought back such beautiful memories. It's such an impressive gift due to the size and colour, it's taller than the recipient! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it and can't wait to be able to purchase a copy for my own grandchildren ;)
Edward's Twilight: edward's version of twilight
Edward's Twilight: edward's version of twilight
If the Twilight series has been so popular with readers it’s because they allow them to escape into a purely fantasy world where Vampires are good and beautiful. Though completely impossible, these romantic novels satisfy a deep need as does much art. Veillon’s crudely written book does everything possible to destroy the dream- like “ therapeutic” function of Meyer’s novels. I found it hard to continue reading after the first chapter. I’m not surprised that Veillon published the work himself as probably no editor would accept it!
The Final Deduction: Nero Wolfe Mystery
The Final Deduction: Nero Wolfe Mystery
Nero Wolfe, oversized gourmet detective, genius par excellence, is one of the most unique characters ever created by a mystery novel author. And Rex Stout wrote a lot of outstanding mystery novels featuring Nero Wolfe, his invaluable assistant and story-teller Archie Goodwin, and his chef, Fritz Brenner, whose recipes many times appear in the books. Not many readers can deduce who the culprit is before the classic revelation scene in which Wolfe eloquently proves who is the guilty party........ and that is what makes for a great whodunnit. The style is clear and eloquent in vocabulary, the plot construction is pure literary architecture, the length is never excessive, and, with such memorable characters, enjoyment is assured.
"The Final Deduction" is a prime example of the art of Rex Stout and lucky are those who acquire the book and read it.
An acid test of how fulfilling a mystery novel can be is whether, after a first reading, one reads it more than once again after a time. Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe mystery novels pass this test frequently with flying colors and "The Final Deduction" is no exception.

Harry Potter Poster Collection: The Definitive Movie Posters (Insights Poster Collections)
This large poster book is a worthwhile purchase for any Harry Potter fan. It contains many of the memorable posters that marked each film release and will inevitably provoke feelings of nostalgia as you rediscover your favourite images. The book boasts a spectacular 40 removable posters although it is worth noting that they are printed on 20 double-sided pages which is unfortunate for framing purposes. The pictures themselves are good quality and printed on durable, thick cardboard - there are 32 English language posters and 8 in additional languages. There is an interesting variety of images however I was a little disappointed that two of my favourite Hogwarts posters were missing from the collection; The Sorcerers Stone 'The Magic Begins' poster where we see Hogwarts for the first time and The Deathly Hallows 'It All Ends Here' poster of Hogwarts burning in the finale. Overall this is still a superb collection of posters for a bargain price that any fan will enjoy, it's just a shame that two memorable posters were not included in this definitive collection.

I blindly bought this product for my five year old's Halloween costume, he is obsessed with HP. I didn't read reviews, I probably should have seeing this is quite obviously not a toy for children....thankfully my son is very gentle. I don't see much issue with the quality of the item it is made of foam..my husband thinks it's creepy. I personally think he's kinda cute. At any rate, if you have a rough child...this is NOT for you. The shipping speed was unbelievable though. I ordered this item in the morning on September 11, 2014 the item was received the following morning. Crazy fast!
Children's Book of Magic
Children's Book of Magic
Lots of great tricks you can do at home and make with simple household objects. My daughter got this when she was 5 and loves the magic tricks in here. It discusses different magical effects (vanishing, prediction, levitation, production, teleportation, transformation, restoration and escapology) and techniques like misdirection and the principles of sleight of hand. It also has a page about Houdini and pages about street magic and stage magic. This book is probably meant for kids 8-12 but my 5 year old loves reading it with me.
There is a small section on magic history, about 12 pages or so, and then it moves on to technique and tricks.There is a page titled "witchcraft and the occult" in the short history section. It says occult means "knowledge of the supernatural" and has little factoids about Macbeth and the Salem Witch Trials and even wicca. It is brief, non-detailed, and fits into the history section comfortably and in a non scary way. It fits with the history section about magic in ancient times, sorcery and wizards (like shamans), alchemy, and mysticism.

The socks were a gift for my daughter-in-law who loves her cup of coffee in the morning. I thought she would feel cozy wearing these socks while enjoying her beverage. I have not given them to her yet, so do not know how she'd feel, but I think they will be favorable. The socks seem comfortable at 51% cotton. The aren't too thin and are at about typical thickness and warmth. The socks are labeled for shoe size 4- 10, so should fit just right. I especially like the clear and distinct words, "cafe, espresso, java, latte, and brew" on the socks as well as the various shaped cups and pots. The natural light beige background color enhances the darker browns of the cups and pots. I think this will be a good gift.

 My kids wanted to spice up their room with some LED color lights. After days of begging, pleading, a few attempted bribes, and all around shenanigans, I decided to cave.

I started the search for multi color LEDs.

I ended up purchasing these lights. Glad I did.

The cords are very sturdy. Thick and tough. Definitely made for outdoor use. They come with the bulbs boxed separately.

The bulbs a fairly bright, albeit a bit small compare to other models. The remote offers an array of controls. You can choose from a variety of colors (red, green, blue, orange, yellow, purple, violet, light blue). The function buttons are (can be seen in successive order in the video).
1. Strobe
2. Fade
3. Twinkle
4. Breath
5. Chaser
6. Random
7. RGB Flash
8. Voice Activated (a fave of the kids).

The mic on control box is pretty sensitive. They were flashing repeatedly while we were having a conversation outside the room. NOTE: Does not come with batteries for the remote. You will need four AAA (two for each remote).

The only cons i can think of are a lack of replacement bulbs, and the inability to connect multiple strands together (the instructions state the unit will not function if you attempt this). The string is light enough to mount almost anywhere using command hooks.

If you're looking for indoor or outdoor party lights, these will do it.

We bought Jura coffee machine after long consideration and research. We are extremely pleased with this product, starting with the coffee quality and ending with the lower noise level (compared to a Bosch automated expresso machine we had before). I can hardly wait for my coffee every morning!

I've had no clue what to look for in the kneeling chair at the time of my purchase. So in this review, I'll try to help solve this issue for people who find themselves in a similar situation.
I know that some of you are impatient and are looking for a quick answer to a simple question: "To buy or not to buy?"
My answer to this question is: "Do NOT buy if this is your first kneeling chair. Instead, look for a chair with the seat positioned at the less steep of an angle. You can find some less than half the price of this one. Or go for a rocking kneeling chair, which is a bit more expensive."
After my first few days in this chair, I found it not as comfortable as I'd hoped it would be. My initial thought was that I was doing something wrong. So I did some research online and then tried different kneeling chairs in my local Staples and furniture stores.
I don't want to go into the pros and cons of all kneeling chairs in this review. But you need to know what to expect in general. So here is an excerpt from Wikipedia:
"A proper kneeling chair creates the open body angle by lowering the angle of the lower body, keeping the spine in alignment, and the sitter properly positioned to task. The benefit of this position is that if one leans inward, the body angle remains 90° or wider. It is a type of chair for sitting in a position with the thighs dropped to an angle of about 60° to 70° from vertical (as opposed to 90° when sitting in a normal chair). A misconception regarding kneeling chairs is that the body's weight bears on the knees, and thus users with poor knees cannot use the chair. In a proper kneeling chair, most of the weight remains on the buttocks, and some of the weight bears on the shins, not the knees. The primary function of the shin rests (knee rests) is to keep one from falling forward out of the chair."
Now back to this particular chair. It's all about angles. The angle of the seat is quite steep. More so than in other chairs I've tried. It forces me to slide forward and place more weight on my shins or knees. I'm 5'10, and the knee pad is a little too far for me to rest my shins on it.
As a result of all this I end up sitting on the edge of the seat with half of my weight rested on my knees. This is wrong.
This chair does have three different positions for a kneeling pad, and height adjustment knob. None of those adjustments solve the problem. Higher seat positions make the angle of the seat even steeper.
As I've said, I've tried a few other chairs after this one. I think rocking kneeling chairs are hands down the best. But another much cheaper and simple looking chair from my local store was also much more comfortable than this one.
I hope it helps.

GOOD & PLENTY Candy, Classic Black Licorice Flavor, 6 Ounce (Pack of 12)
As a child, I never got into sweets. Candy bars, lemon drops, peppermint canes all did not appeal to me.

One Saturday matinee, my friend offered me some Good 'n Plenty and that moment changed everything. If I went to a movie, I bought this candy. If I went to a ball game, I had this candy. Get the picture?

And then suddenly, it disappeared off of the shelves, everywhere. It was like there was a Good 'n Plenty shortage where people were hoarding it because of some strange pandemic or something.

As I grew older, I forgot about this little treat and thanks to the internet, my childhood memories came rushing back. I even recalled walking up the stairs to the balcony [remember those?] as two kids ran by us down the stairs laughing. The manager grabbed my friend and I by the collars and tossed us out of the movie, but my candy was still in hand! It appears that the kids who ran by had squirted him in the face with a squirt gun and that did not sit well with him [go figure].

Anyway, I have been rationing this delight ever since its receipt trying to make it last and of course not putting pounds on places I wish they weren't. There were many other moments of gasps while watching intense movie scenes and popping in another piece or two into my wide-open mouth, but that's another story.

If you miss this candy, I encourage you to get some, sit back in a quiet chair, close your eyes, and recall what that flavor was associated with meant in your earlier years. Enjoy!

First, these are the original Twizzlers, NOT the chewy, gum-like, weird-tasting individually wrapped ones.

Yes, there are a lot, all stuck together in a big tub. This is how you keep them fresh since most people aren't going to eat them all in a week: Get three to five Ziploc gallon-size bags (how quickly you eat them determines this number; I use three) and separate the Twizzlers into the bags. Roll the bags from the bottom to compress, half seal the bag, finish rolling the Twizzlers inside the bag toward the top, finish sealing the Ziploc bag, removing most of the air. Place all but one bag back into the plastic tub, replace the lid, store in a cool place. Viola! Now you have lots of Twizzlers staying fresh to eat at your leisure. Enjoy!

Arrived in good time, I have never had these before.I thought these would be like the ones I grew up with that are solid all the way through and give your jaw a good work out. These are quite thin and hollow in the middle so they taste ' interesting' slightly herbal, maybe root beer. , but not the texture experience I was expecting. Its my fault for buying something new but incase anyone else thinks they are solid, they are not.
