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

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

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

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

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

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

Disclaimer: the wit & wisdom WEB has exhibited throughout his carreer are replicable by many but the temperament needed to execute is IMHO the most important factor in obtaining above average results. If you ain't disciplined & patient, your results will vary...

Learning what make these people successful and how they continue to maintain that success left me awed. These 10 billionaires not only climbed to the top of their industries but also became some of the richest people in the world. I feel so inspired on how this book covers about how these people earned the money that they have right now. Some ideas I’ve learned that through determination, grit, and a bit of luck anyone can overcome their circumstances and achieve extraordinary success.
Merchants of Truth: The Business of News and the Fight for Facts
Merchants of Truth: The Business of News and the Fight for Facts
What a breath of fresh air this book is.

In an age increasingly characterized by narrow-minded fanatics, here’s someone capable of writing good things and bad things about the same people and organizations.

At a time when more and more writing is either totally in favour of its subject or totally against it, Jill Abramson has provided fair and balanced coverage of four news organizations—the York Times, the Washington Post, Buzzfeed and Vice.

This is really four books in one. The reporting is so thorough that each story could stand on its own as a separate volume.
Abramson has done a tonne of interviews—more than 100 at Vice alone—and the result is a detailed look inside each organization with a steady stream of great anecdotes.

Mostly, it’s a great read. The only exception is the description of the technologies Buzzfeed uses to manipulate readers. This is pretty tedious going—it’s about dull people doing dull things, after all—but it’s an important part of the story.
In this 534-page book there are a few sentences that weren’t directly attributed to their sources, but given that the book has 70 pages of source notes, surely those were honest errors of omission.

When Abramson was executive editor of the Times, a glance at the online headlines each morning was a guaranteed adrenaline rush, the stories were that interesting. I’ve never experienced that before or since—in any publication.

As for the the subject of her book—the future of news—my takeaway is there is no secret to the news media’s survival.

While all four media groups are endangered, the New York Times, according to Abramson, is furthest along the road to survival, thanks largely to four million paid subscribers. Abramson credits a gutsy decision by the then publisher. Although the experts said it would never work, the Times began charging for online subscriptions, and the ensuing financial turnaround is now history.

It's ironic that the new media (Buzzfeed and Vice) have embraced the failed business model of old media—heavy reliance on advertising revenue. (Paper newspapers traditionally got the lion's share of their revenue from advertising; subscription revenue was secondary.)

Meanwhile, the Times, got nearly two-thirds of its 2017 revenue from circulation. Ad revenue is now a secondary stream.
While journalism is more than a business, the key to its financial success is no different than in any other business—give customers a product or service they want or need, at a price they’re able and willing to pay.
The Power of Adversity: A Guide To Finding Your Greatest Gift In Life (Similar to Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Bass)
The Power of Adversity: A Guide To Finding Your Greatest Gift In Life (Similar to Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Bass)
The word that comes to mind after reading Tiffany Mason's book, The Power of Adversity, is resilience. Trauma can cripple people to the point of not wanting to be on this earth. Yet, as we see here, trauma eventually leads to a life of meaning and adventure and peace. No easy task no matter what you're history is. One of the worst crimes of childhood and young adults is not being taken seriously. Tiffany Mason had the courage to tell the truth about her skating coach's husband. No one helped her or even tried to understand the dynamics of a sexual predator. Her resilience led her to write this beautiful book to be shared with the world. Never give up. Never stop trying. Speak your truth! There is so much inside us that lays dormant. Tiffany Mason reminds us life is to be lived and explored with gusto.
Henry Ford's Lean Vision: Enduring Principles from the First Ford Motor Plant
Henry Ford's Lean Vision: Enduring Principles from the First Ford Motor Plant
I spend my days managing an industrial operation where Lean is the backbone of our shop floor and office processes. As with most lean practitioners, I read a great deal of the current lean literature. As a student of industrial history, I have read hundreds of books relating to the early 20th century manufacturers.

As a result, I was hopeful this book would offer a concise place to see early lean lessons. Most folks have some view of Ford.Those early lean lessons are often more acceptable for use in the US lean training. Over use of Japanese examples and terms can get in the way of learing lean.

I was disappointed in the book. The information presented is valid. It also is aligned with my own experiences and reading. However, the presentation and writing style made this a difficult book to read. The author seemed to want to add in the lessons of Chinese and Japanese thoughs. Those lessons seemed forced and broke up the rhythm of reading the book.

It is more of a personal preference, but the layout and style of the pages did not enhance the reading experience.

There is a great deal of underlying value in the material presented. If you choose to read this book, be prepared for a slog. It is a valid premise--poorly presented.
John Wesley Harding
John Wesley Harding
John Wesley Harding sneaks up on you. I bet a lot of people ignore it because the most anthologized track, "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" is not particularly representative of the rest of the album (for example, it's the only track with any "country" touches like pedal steel). The rest of it is an enigmatic series of dream-like encounters, some of which take on the qualities of tall tales, others metaphysical dialogues, others seem like pivotal, shattering experiences.
There is an intimacy to this record that is somewhat akin to the more celebrated Blood on the Tracks, but on this album, Dylan is being completely allusive, leading you at times into thickets of imagery that stretch your mind toward revelations that come slowly if at all. In context with the other music he was producing at the time (i.e. The Basement Tapes), it's clear to see that his isolation and recovery provided strong creative inspiration, leading him to develop a kind of backwoods sense of humor, and a backwoods sense of mystery.
What caps this album off for me as Dylan's best and maybe my favorite album of all time, is his performance. His singing is flawless--I love especially "Drifter's Escape" but the whole album's great. The musicianship is of the highest order, not something you can always count on with a Dylan record; the bassist and the drummer give Dylan solid but subtle support, and Dylan's harmonica playing is liquid. It is recorded guilelessly--he is literally singing in your ear.
Look, I also do love Blood on the Tracks, Blonde on Blonde, Bringing it All Back Home, Love and Theft, Desire; but whereas all those albums feature Dylan defiantly at center stage, demanding to be heard, John Wesley Harding (and the Basement Tapes) give you a Dylan who is in deep, private contemplation of the mysteries about which, elsewhere, he is so sure about what he has to say. This is a more attractive Dylan to me--no less brilliant, but someone who's taking us along for the ride.
Real Bob Dylan
Real Bob Dylan
This covers Dylan's music from his first album (released in 1962) to the late nineteen eighties. There are tracks from all the studio albums and it is roughly chronological.

It is a good representation of Dylan's career up to the album Oh Mercy although he has produced much great work since. There are some obvious omissions such as Blowin' in the Wind and Subteranean Homesick Blues but Dylan has produced so many great songs no Dylan fan will be happy with any compilation and those new Dylan's music can rest assured there are many more great songs to discover.

My main criticism is that there are no sleeve notes and the re is nothing to tell you which album the songs come from so it is a bit confusing. But for those wanting to discover Bob Dylan this is a good choice.

These days, with everything being done remotely to protect from Coronavirus, having a nice webcam is a must. This camera truly is very nice and is a big upgrade over most built-in webcams on tablets and laptops. It has a nice clean design that looks good in your office and seems very well made. It couldn't be any easier to use; all you have to do is plug it in and you're ready to go. I did notice that if using from a device with a built-in webcam, you have to select "HD Webcam" as the video source rather than the default "built-in webcam". On that note, this camera performed significantly better than the built-in cameras on all of my devices (an older Macbook Pro, a Google Pixelbook, and an HP Laptop). Colors were more vivid and the image was sharper in all of my tests when using this Wansview camera versus the built-in one. Audio quality was quite good using the camera's mics as well. I did notice a little bit of latency, but it was very minimal compared to other cameras in this price range. I tested this camera with Skype, Microsoft Teams, Chrome Camera, and Zoom and it worked flawlessly with all of them. For those asking, this will work on Chromebooks (Chrome OS). I tested mine using a USB-C OTG adapter dongle and it worked great. For those concerned with privacy, I liked that this camera has a red LED to let you know when it's recording. The mounting clamp works great, but it's a little tricky on super thin laptop screens. Finally, a really cool feature on this camera is that the lens can be focused manually by turning the lens housing left or right until the picture is in focus. This works great and I was able to fine tune the image on mine until it looked perfect.

Overall, if you're in in the market for a good webcam, you should seriously consider the Wansview Full HD Webcam. It packs a lot of nice and thoughtful features into a compact and nice-looking device for a really fair price.
Nike Lebron XVI Low Unisex Shoes
Nike Lebron XVI Low Unisex Shoes
These are my first Jordans, ive ever put on my feet ( i know, i know). I only bought Vans, since childhood, spent nearly a thousand on pairs over the decades guesstimate.
I started crossing over to the Nike side after buying a $40 pair at an outlet and was freakin surprised that it was lighter than my $90 pair of vans..ewww
So after a couple months of me wearing those nikes over my vans, ive grown accustomed to the lightweight feature
And since i like having the best of the best, i looked for good Nike's and came across this very colourful pair.
Blacklight UV approved, if you have a blacklight these shoes will pop way way more than in the sunlight, still cant imagine myself at a rave tho. Aint my scene

Most importantly these are True Fit.
I ordered an 11.5 and these fit perfectly

808Dude Certified Organic Deodorant for Teen Boys. Eliminate Kids Stinky Pits. Aluminum Free. Native and All Natural Cruelty Free and Vegan Ingredients for the Ultimate Kidz Armpit Detox 50ml
It arrived looking grubby and feeling sticky. There was no seal on it. It did not look clean on outside and felt sticky as if it had leaked a bit so I did not give it to my child. It does not let me return the item which I understand considering it is deodorant however a clean deodorant with a seal should have been sent. Disappointed!
Muji Gel Ink Ball Point Pen, Black, 0.38mm, Pack of 3 (Japan Import)
Muji Gel Ink Ball Point Pen, Black, 0.38mm, Pack of 3 (Japan Import)
Bottom line: Very fine tipped pen, writes well and consistently, need to watch out for smearing (e.g. this is a very touch pen for left handers to use if their hands rub the section of the paper they just wrote on!). I haven't tested this in space, but if you're anywhere on earth (on land, not underwater), you will enjoy the fine art of penmanship with this writing instrument!

Feel
This pen has a solid plastic casing. It is not overly large or heavy (in fact, it is very light). It is a stiff plastic casing, and you don't have all the bells and whistles with fancy grips. You do not miss nor need them for this pen!

Pros
Overall, I love this pen. It is my go-to pen.
* Pen tip is very fine; as a result, the pen is very accurate when writing
* It writes incredibly well and is very smooth
* I have not yet had an ink blot or a dry spot while writing
* The ink is dark and consistent in color, look, width, etc.
* No leakage during storage, no matter which direction I store the pen (upside down, right side up, sideways, etc.)
* Consistently writes, no matter which direction the pen has been stored in
* I haven't stored this in extreme temperature conditions for a long period of time (e.g. in the car), but for the short times I've had it in my car or outside, I have no reason to doubt this pen wouldn't perform.

Cons
There aren't very many cons to this pen, I would say it's the best pen I own and my favorite one to write with.
* You have to give the ink a little time to dry - it's not much time, but if you don't, it will smear
* It's more than your cheap, bulk pens, but with this pen, you get MORE than what you pay for!
* Your friends and coworkers will always try to steal your pen, it is a magnificent writing instrument

I have a comparison of different pens, a single stroke (the top, straight line) and a back-and-forth scribble. The pens from left to right:
* Muji Gel Ink Ball Point Pen (far left)
* Pilot G-2 07
* Sharpie Fine Point
* Sharpie Ultra Fine Point
* High end hotel pen
* Free city pen
* Westin hotel pen
* Disneyland pen (far right)

The House of Thunder
This effort on Koontz's part is just not up to his usual level of entertainment. One of the reasons that he's so good is that you attach to the main characters and progress through the book like a tail hooked on a cat. You feel what the character feels and empathize as if you are the object of the story. This, however, enticed me only as an observer into the life of a character I really didn't care that much about. The book had the possibility of being one of Koontz's better novels but these prospects were never realized. We have a lady hospitalized after a car accident, a fraternity hazing, a sinister corporation, a hospital with secret doors, people who aren't who they say they are - wow - what a set up! Unfortunately, it just didn't come together. Love Dean - I'll patently wait for his next installment of the Frankenstein series. bg

Une belle histoire, des personnages attachants, une écriture fluide et un soin pour le détail spécifique à cet auteur. Les deux tomes suivants de cette saga sur les Clifton sont disponibles en format de poche seulement en anglais, comme j'ai pu le constater sur amazon.com et amazon.uk. Les titres différents de ces trois tomes peuvent tromper le lecteur, en le faisant croire que le premier volume n'a pas de suite et qu'il a été bouclé trop facilement. Achetez donc après «Seul l'avenir le dira» les deux autres titres inclus dans cette «Chronique des Clifton»: «Les fautes de nos pères» et «Best Kept Secret» (pour l'instant disponible seulement en anglais).

Le Shōnen manga par excellence, précurseur du genre, rempli d'humour(assez grivoise), beaucoup imité, jamais égalé !!

Culte pour toute une génération, si vous ne connaissaient pas faites vous votre propre avis, foncé et vous ne
saurez surement pas déçus!!

Les aventures du jeune Sangoku sont finies(depuis le tome 13), l'histoire fait place depuis à un Sangoku devenu adulte et
ayant crée une famille. Les combats font rage contre des adversaires toujours plus fort les uns que les autres.
Comme beaucoup je regrette énormément que l'humour des Tomes précédent qui faisait tout le charme de Dragon Ball
disparaissent définitivement à partir du Tome 16.
Malgré cela l'auteur continue(ou essaie pour certains) de nous réjouir avec une histoire prenante et des combats palpitant.

Dans le même genre je peux vous je peux vous conseiller Hunter X Hunter, One Piece, Naruto,Bleach, Fairy Tail, Death Note autres shōnen à succès et plus récemment My Hero Academia.

Bonne lecture à tous
Phoenix, Vol. 1: Dawn
Phoenix, Vol. 1: Dawn
This is a very special manga and a piece of literature. First of all, for those who have never read a Tezuka manga, you'd be distracted by the inferiority of the artwork by today's standard. By if you can ignore that, you'll find the storyline is one of the greatest achievements in literary history.

The entire series is shifting between past and future. And the interval between time will become smaller and smaller. For example, the story started from pre-historical Japan, then shift to circa 3000 AD in the future, but the jump between time will become shorter as it goes.

The series is incomplete, due to Tezuka's untimely death, though in other sense, it's completed because I think Tezuka probably knew he probably didn't have time to finish it, so the last published chapter already nailed the point that you can't really miss.

Each episodic story is clearly told, but once you began try to link the point of each story, you'd realize it's actually a collage of pictures with a repeating theme that tries to tell you about this vicious cycle of life. Every story is essentially the same, about how human being overwhelmed by their own greed and do stupid things over and over, disregard the passage of time.

So what's the main conflict? There are some side stories, but all the core stories are united with this Phoenix figure, which essentialy the god figure of the story. The Phoenix is immortal. According to the legend, anyone who drinks her blood, will become immortal as well. That's our conflict. People will do stupid things and kill each other just to become immortal (or become god-like).

Anyways, the original title of the series is called "Hi no Tori", which literally means Bird of Fire in Japanese. The Bird of Fire symbolizes sun in East Asian culture and sun is the source of life. It's highly ironical that the source of life is also the source of death. The translated title "Phoenix" isn't too far off, because there are chapters in the stories that will refer to the immortal bird as the Phoenix when the story is set in China (as that's the Chinese name for such bird).

The story transcends time. One of the chapters is about human cloning (not yet translated into English at the time of this review). Now that's something everyone should read about before one go gaga over this cloning issue that's hotly debated right now. It's about how a Reality TV show ran out of ideas, so he started this new show about clone hunting. Now, I'll let you guys read the story. Keep in mind this story is decades old. That's how ingenius this series is and no wonder Tezuka is called the God of Manga.

Major Spoiler now:

You may at some point feeling lost why Tezuka kept the stories going even though they just repeat itself despite of cosmetic changes (rather similar to life, as I see it). Well, just keep on reading to the end of the last published chapter, things become much clearer (as shift of time become narrower and therefore, more focused). The Phoenix will reveal she is sick and tired of being immortal as she will have to oversee human repeat their stupidity, doing a greedy but pointless quest. If you can see it from this way and draw a parallel to our own existence, you'd be enlightened. It's essentially the same enlightenment Buddha is trying to tell us, but Tezuka was smart enough to make another story that's easier to digest than Buddha's teaching. (btw, Tezuka also have a manga called Buddha, but that's a historical fiction about Buddha's life)

It's a masterpiece no one who is interested in humanity should miss. BTW, EmDee stands for MD. It's an in-joke made by Tezuka, because Tezuka was a medical doctor before he abandoned it to become a manga artist.
Das Buschgespenst: Roman, Band 64 der Gesammelten Werke (Karl Mays Gesammelte Werke) (German Edition)
Das Buschgespenst: Roman, Band 64 der Gesammelten Werke (Karl Mays Gesammelte Werke) (German Edition)
Dieser Text ist angesiedelt in dem Zeit- und Mentalitätsumbruch zwischen der vergehenden Romantik und der einsetzenden Industrialisierung, erzählt am Beispiel eines Dorfes im Erzgebirge. Die romantische Sphäre wird gefüttert durch eine am Rand des Scheiterns stehenden, aber selbstverständlich glücklich endenden Liebesbeziehung, bedroht durch die die dörfliche Gemeinschaft dominierende bzw tyrannisierende Familie, in der der Widerling in Gestalt des Sohnes einen sexistischen Blick auf die junge Braut geworfen hat und damit das unmoralische Spiel seines Vaters an einem anderen Mädchen viele Jahre zuvor wieder aufleben lässt. Diese Andere, verhärmt und früh verstorben, der Sohn ins Waisenhaus gesteckt und durch ein kinderloses, vermögendes Paar in Pflege genommen und später adoptiert, lebt im Helden der Geschichte, einem Privatdetektiv, weiter und wird am Ende der Geschichte gerächt. Unser Detektiv, der Sohn der Verstorbenen, wird auf Umwegen zum Erlöser der Menschen der Dorfgemeinschaft (siehe das Schlußkapitel "Bessere Menschen, bessere Zeiten").

Die treibende Erzählung ist dabei nicht selten langatmig und wirkt konstruiert, wie immer bei unserem Autor. In seinen besten Sachen (beispielsweise die Bände "Durch die Wüste" ff oder die deutsch-französische Geschichte über drei Generationen der Greifenklaus) wirkt dieses Durchkonstruierte meisterhaft, man weiß um den melodramatischen Firlefanz und hält beim Lesen dennoch den Atem an- hier beim "Buschgespenst" ertappe ich mich immer wieder beim Weiterblättern auf der Suche nach einem neuen, aufregenden Handlungsschub.

Die wahre Stärke des Textes ist ihr anderer Aspekt, die einsetzende Industrialisierung und die damit verbundene Umwälzung der Lebensverhältnisse der Menschen, geschildert am -dem Autor hochvertrauten- Milieu eines Dorfes seiner Heimatregion (siehe das Kapitel "Das arme Weberdorf").

Dieser Subtext macht allerdings "Das Buschgespenst" zu einem Gewinn, das Wissen, dass unser Autor in anderen Werken deutlich Lebendigeres geschaffen hat, versöhnt insgesamt, 3 Sterne dafür!
ROSE HARBOR IN BLOOM
ROSE HARBOR IN BLOOM
I really love Debbie Macomber's books they are each special in their own right, Rose Harbor In Bloom is no different. This book is the sequel to 'The Inn at Rose Harbour' which I will be review very soon as well. Rose Harbour In Bloom tells the story of the owner and the guests that stay in Rose Harbour, this story follows the lives of three women that each need to get closure on a part of their life and find out what is next for them.

The story starts with Jo Marie and her lovely inn at Rose Harbour, along with her sweet dog, Rover she has taken to life at the habour quite well but she is still hurting from the sudden death of her husband, Paul. There is also Mary who is very ill and she has returned to Rose Harbour to finally get closure for a mistake she made nearly twenty years ago.

Jo Maire and Mark who is the gardener and landscaper have a very unique friendship and over the course of the story, you can find them arguing on several occasions. In the last book The Inn at Rose Harbour Jo Maire purchased the inn as part of rebuilding her life after her husband tragically dead, this story picks back up with the upcoming season and the inn full bookings.

Annie is one of the many guest that are going to be staying in the inn, she is there along with the rest of her family as part of her grandparents wedding anniversary. Though Annie is glad for the escape as she has recently broken up with her Fiance who had lied to her on several occasions, so she decides to arrive early and escape her life back home.

Rose Harbour in Bloom is an amazing story, perfect for a summer read and also for anyone who just loves Debbie Macomber's books. This story is full of close friends, second chances and a lots of surprises that are in store for the guests at the inn.

If I had to sum this book in three words, they would have to be Amazing, Heartwarming and Joyful. I loved this book and would read it again and again as it is totally brilliant. I would recommend this book to everyone as it has everything friendship, family ties and much more.

These are beautifully made and are standing up well to use. The engraving is deep and sharp. It will last a long time with good care practices.

This means, however, that keeping them clean and sanitary requires a stiff brush, and they must at least be well rinsed immediately after use. For safety, neither bamboo nor wood cooking tools should be allowed to soak, so don't let sauces dry on these utensils.
How To Draw Harry Potter Step By Step Drawings!: Harry Potter Drawing and Coloring Book
How To Draw Harry Potter Step By Step Drawings!: Harry Potter Drawing and Coloring Book
I bought this as a Christmas Present for my 8 year old niece who is currently obsessed with Harry Potter lol
She's got the artist genes like her Aunt! (Me hehe) and wants to learn how to draw chibi/anime/manga style art which is my specialty.
I unfortunately don't live close enough to give her lessons and she was having difficulty learning via video chat.
I ended up looking on Amazon for some how to draw harry potter chibi style books and this one came up. Out of the ones I browsed, this looked to be the best option for my 8 year old niece.
Before I wrapped it, I of course checked it out and it was great! The book came in excellent condition, the drawings were not too difficult for someone in her age group to follow. I also loved that each character got their own how to draw steps, along with a completed drawing of each character.
All of the lining was done thick and black which not only made it very easy to see but could also serve as a template for her to trace over to help her get a feel for this style of art.
All in all, the drawings themselves might not have been the most detailed or well drawn depiction of the harry potter characters done in chibi style of art hence why I took off 1 star.
However, they are good practice for beginner level kids who love drawing and are trying to learn how to draw chibi anime style... and of course who love harry potter lol

PROS:
• Durable hard plastic
• Small and portable for travel needs
• Expands 1 outlet into 3, ideal for places with only a single outlet (like my bathroom)

• Power plugs stay secure in the tap outlets

CONS:
• No swivel design, not ideal for placement in tight environments, like against 2 objects

Pedi este producto tan pronto me entere que existia porque soy un gran fanatico del WRC.

Para empezar, lo pedi a las 11am y llego el dia siguiente como a las 5pm. Excelente trabajo Amazon.

Eso a un lado, hablo del producto:
Llega en una caja de carton, de tamaño como de las cajas de galletitas de animalitos, pero mas profunda.

La caja se abre por la cara mas grande... como las cajas de galletitas de animalitos, pero son Legos no se confundan. Se levanta la tapa y dentro tenemos 4 bolsas conteniendo las piezas. Estan en bolsas segun su tamaño. Piezas grandes, peques, MUY pequeñas y detalles. Que detalles? Las calcomanias y 2 sets de rines!

Armarlo es MUY divertido, las instrucciones muy claras, lo unico dificil es poner las calcomanias centradas. Toma aproximademente 3 horas armarlo.

Una vez armado el carrito me llama tanto la atencion. Da gusto verlo la neta me da esa emocion de ver carros WRC.

Ademas, el vehiculo se puede hasta cierto punto "personalizar". Como mencione, incluye dos sets de rines y dos frentes diferentes: Uno incluye la barra de luces LED para cuando corren de noche, y el otro no.

Lo recomiendo muchisimo como regalo para alguien fan al WRC.

I ordered this scrub top because it is the uniform at my school and the only accepted top. I hate it. It’s huge and boxy and I feel like I’m wearing a garbage bag. I didn’t think it was very soft, I washed in hot water and dried not much shrinkage a little softer, but now has lint all over it even though I washed it alone. It will not work well for me with a cat in the house. There shouldn’t even be a unisex top, men and women are shaped differently! V slit in front way too deep I’ll need to wear a cami underneath. Hate there are no slits on the side, no waist pockets. We have to wear the Grape color and it is pretty and vibrant. Wish they offered this horrible shirt in petite. I’m 5’2 there’s no way I can tuck it in and not look pregnant with all the bulk. Very disappointed.

I have to admit that in reality the votes are not all in. My granddaughter has not yet worn them. BUT that being said I had purchased her a multi-pieced Caters set to wear at my house. She came recently to my house bringing her own pjs. She changed into the my Carters set because mine were more "comfortable" She ended up taking the Carter set home where my daughter says she loves them. This set looks to be of the same quality. The fabric is not a cheap light weight knit but it is not so heavy that it cannot be worn in the summer. I love the versatility of the pieces all really "go" with all the other pieces. The graphics should appeal to the little girl in the little girl. Really cute. The sticker price is higher than I wanted to pay but it well worth it considering what you get!!!

I love this book! I read it just a few days ago and was able to organize my YouTube channel. My 7 minute intro video is very straight to the point with my watchers.

They know exactly what I have to offer and how it can help them. I no longer have a blog because I'm too ADHD to sit and write out posts. :-P
I do everything by video so I can speak my mind and people see my emotions.

This book will also help you set up your very own blog. I'm not sure what I have, is it a vlog? Perhaps. Chapter one is the meat, and potatoes of your blogging journey. There are some very provocative questions for you to answer.

I suggest you write down your answers for clarity. As I said before, I took the questions and answered them right on my intro video. Get this book and read chapter 1 immediately. If you get stuck on a question, don't skip it. Simply put it to the side until you think a little more, but make sure you answer that question. Best wishes to you all!

The bag definitely is long enough for the screen I have but is not wide enough in the center of the bag where the screen's carrying handle is. The material used in the bag's construction is very thin and lightweight, so I don't expect it to stand up to a lot of use. There are no reinforced areas at all. The straps and handles are very thin and low-grade. The zipper is a very poor quality and I expect it to burst at the center where the bag is stretched tight over the screen. I am not impressed with this bag at all and will shop around more next time.

Very misleading. Not worth the money at all. It's like someone went and printed "king size" over what should say "fun size". The 15 packs each have only 5 twizzlers, that are about 3" long; half the length of the ones you can buy in the stores.
Mr. Unavailable and the Fallback Girl: The Definitive Guide to Understanding Emotionally Unavailable Men and the Women that Love Them
Mr. Unavailable and the Fallback Girl: The Definitive Guide to Understanding Emotionally Unavailable Men and the Women that Love Them
Overall I found this book quite helpful while going through yet another break up with yet another emotionally unavailable man. It was eye-opening and comforting to realize that I’m not the only one who seems to be repeating the same patterns over and over again. I appreciated the journal exercises (especially writing out boundaries), though I thought the values section did not seem to have as clear instructions as the others. Also, the book made a number of references to things that supposedly could be found on the baggage reclaim website, that I either couldn’t find or required me paying for something else. That was kind of frustrating.

While I wasn’t expecting this book to reference scientific studies, I think readers could benefit from exploring adult attachment theories as a more grounded explanation for why Mr. Unavailables and Fallback Girls act the way they do. The author of this book kind of floundered back and forth on whether Mr. Unavailables are simply jerks, or if we’re two sides of the same coin and both products of our life experiences. Since finishing this book, I’ve started reading Attached by Amir Levine and Rachel Heller. I’m finding their description of avoidant attachment personality perfectly fits Mr. Unavailables, and anxious attachment fits Fallback Girls. Mr. Unavailable & the Fallback Girl definitely served a purpose in my depressed and angry post-break-up state, and helped me realize there are behaviors I need to recognize and firmly not accept. I would recommend it, but also suggest looking into attachment theories to provide a more consistent and grounded explanation.
