The Book of Investing Wisdom
The Book of Investing Wisdom
This book is quite mediocre, consisting of a bunch of second-rate excerpts from the work of famous investors. It's like an art museum that, instead of the BEST works by famous painters, has the WORST work by each famous painter. I can't imagine why editor Krass did this, except maybe to save on the expenses of securing permission to reprint.

For example, in the case of Benjamin Graham, instead of choosing something sublime from, say "The Intelligent Investor", Krass chose an obscure piece from "The Magazine of Wall Street" in 1920, which talks about hedging techniques that Graham himself said were useless, later in his career.

The biographical sketches before each piece are full of errors, for example misspelling "Niagara" as "Niagra" and stating that J.S. Bach died in 1760 when even the most amateur student of music history knows that he died in 1750.

The underlying cause of all this nonsense becomes clear when you go to the dust jacket and see that Krass has written a whole series of these books, such as "Book of Financial Wisdom," "Book of Leadership Wisdom," etc. Clearly Krass is a hack who knows nothing about investing, and is just assembling quotations at random to make a few bucks. Save your money and buy a good book on investing. This is not it.

Until Today!: Devotions for Spiritual Growth and Peace of Mind
Until Today!: Devotions for Spiritual Growth and Peace of Mind
This book has helped me through the toughest of times. I really love how it's not all "you're wonderful and perfect" it forces you to look at how your actions, environment and entire being contributes to your situation. Sometimes the moments in are lives are beyond our control but we have control over how we react to it. And this book really forces us to do that. I'm a massive fan and what's even better is that you can go back and revise the devotions dependent on what you are going through at that very moment. I like to pray/meditate after reading and actually use the words to improve everything I do. This book really forces you to live in the now and be mindful. It's not a religious book yet it is you can apply it to whatever faith system you follow if you are religious/atheist/agnostic/spiritual. I can't recommend it enough for people who are going through a tough time or maybe just want to self improve and feel more present in their lives!

Blue Wild Angel: Jimi Hendrix Live at the Isle of Wight
Blue Wild Angel: Jimi Hendrix Live at the Isle of Wight
Although not the complete available compilation of this concert, this CD is a must for any serious Hendrix collector, or for someone considering getting into his music and your'e not sure you want to put out the money for the 2 disk set. I think this has the best of the concert on it.
Eddie Kramer does a magnificent job of removing the sound quality problems from the original Polydor recording.
To get the full affect of this concert you have to see the DVD!!
Although Hendrix is not at his sharpest (it's 3:30AM), and he knew he was'nt having the greatest night, it is clear that he was heading into a magnificent new dimension of his music. Nothing else he ever recorded sound anything like it... That's what makes this concert so special. It's too bad that we never got to hear and see more of just where he was going with it. However, Jimi still gives it his all making it one of my favorites, and will be yours too...

BESTEK 400W Car Power Inverter DC 12V to AC 110V Car Adapter with 5A 4 USB Charging Ports
I purchased this to use in conjunction with my 100w solar panel and 90AH marine battery. I use it to charge all the electronic devices in the house. Phones, Kindles,Ipads, DSLR batteries,Rechargeable AA's, 18650 batteries (for lights), Chromebook, Portable battery banks

I've been using it daily since I purchased it, 2 days short of a month. It has been a good experience, and I am happy with it, especially for the price.
Here are some things to note:
It is MODIFIED sine wave. I knew this when I bought it, I just want to specify for anyone that needs that clarification.
It is not quiet. The fan is always on if the unit is on, whether it needs to be or not. (To be clear it isn't loud either...it sounds like a fan is running.)
It took me a while to figure this out, but I am happy I did...the USB ports DO NOT require the unit to be switched on in order to charge. This is important for two reasons. 1: Inverters use excess energy to convert DC to AC. Not turning the inverter on for USB charging saves energy. 2: Having usb stuff charge while the inverter is off will still drain your battery. This is not a big deal for me (I've never come close to 50% drain on my battery), but if you are carefully monitoring your supply battery's discharge, be aware that it will continue to drain the battery if you are charging off the usb. ports.

EDIT: Been using this daily for 5 months now. Probably about 2 hours a day of inverting, and much much more USB charging. The fan developed a slight buzz after the 2nd month, but it hasn't worsened since then. Still very happy with it.
Deadpool
Deadpool
Deadpool is the hilarious 2016 superhero film starring Ryan Reynolds as the titular anti-hero. It is clearly an adult film with several sex scenes and plenty of jokes that will go over the heads of the younger audience it isn't intended for. The plot is somewhat secondary to the excellent characterisation and the unusually realistic romance. The DVD version has no real extras to speak of, just a gag reel which includes some Ryan Reynolds riffing on set and some awesome ad libs by TJ Miller. The other extra is basically a set of trailers which aren't as funny as the film itself.

The film takes a while to get going and in truth it does not start out particularly funny. The jokes warm up through the film as many of them are referential or in-jokes which play on the expectations of a Marvel film. The film starts almost literally with a bang and there are a few action sequences to follow. These are generally among the least interesting parts of Deadpool. He's an intriguing combatant but it is not particularly tight choreography. What works best during the action sequences is Deadpool mouthing off to his opponents.

Deadpool casually insults those around him and mocks people amusingly. He is not correct in any way and that makes it a not-too-guilty pleasure. Somehow Reynolds imbues Deadpool with such charm that he's never really offensive, just funny. The scenes with barman friend Weasel played by TJ Miller are among the best. The two banter like real people. Weasel even bets his good friend will get killed. The banter feels realistic and is sharp-witted. Weasel's reaction to Deadpool's physical transformation is the kind of honesty only a good friend would offer but it is still hilarious.

Perhaps the best of Deadpool's relationships though is with his love interest Vanessa. Played by the beautiful Morena Baccarin she has a proper adult relationship with the hero. Unlike too many Hollywood romances there is a vibrancy to the relationship and it is fairly explicitly adult. The pair share a number of sex scenes in different locations. A montage sequence featuring the pair really speaks to a physicality in their relationship that Hollywood usually glosses over. The realism of the pairing comes from Vanessa's introduction "your crazy matches my crazy". It makes sense that the two are together. Of course it helps that both Baccarin and Reynolds are attractive people but there's a realism beyond the good looking superficial appearance.

As this is the Deadpool show, the main villain does not have so much to work with. Ed Skrein plays the role of Ajax pretty much straight. There isn't any of the cheeky charm Skrein is capable of, presumably because the humour is designed to be through Deadpool's wit rather than his viillain. A bit of a missed opportunity really as it could have been fun to see Reynolds and Skrein trading barbs. Skrein's accent of course makes him a natural bad guy but he does seem to be having a bit of fun with the malice of his character's torment as Deadpool becomes his super self.

A couple of minor Marvel characters make an appearance but they basically seem to exist for Deadpool to make jokes. The line about turning up at the Professor X's school and only ever seeing the two of them is a funny way of pointing out the difference in concept between Deadpool and other X-Men productions. The visualisation of Colossus is much more akin to the original comic concept and the voice is reminiscent of appearances in the animated series. The disapproval Colossus has for Deadpool's lifestyle is an easy target for banter. The appearance of the ridiculously-named Negasonic Teenage Warhead is probably just there for the name but the sullen teenager routine opens itself up to excellent lines from Deadpool.

The costume design and colouring is good enough for this kind of film but clearly not the same as a bigger budget adventure. Reynolds looks a bit silly in the Deadpool suit but that's part of the charm. The others are not particularly interesting to look at except Vanessa who is beautifully attired.

The film's music is a bit of an odd choice. The DVD theme song is X Gon' Give It to Ya which is neither new enough to be cool nor old enough to be retro. A perfectly fine song but it doesn't seem to suit Deadpool at all. Musically this is not a particularly memorable film.

Visually Deadpool is fine, making use of frequent freeze-frame techniques during action to showcase Deadpool's abilities while bullets are flying around. It slows the action down quite often which means it loses some intensity but it is fun to see Deadpool's antics and that's what the film is ultimately about.

Deadpool at its heart is a funny and light-hearted take on a classic comic book character. It breaks the fourth wall knowingly, it uses in-jokes and banter between its characters to fire off barbs and make each scene worth smiling at or laughing with. There are not too many films like this one.
Deadpool Classic, Vol. 3
Deadpool Classic, Vol. 3
Covering issues #9-17 of Joe Kelly's famous Deadpool run and a throwback to the classic Amazing Spider-Man #47 for referencing purposes, this third installment of the Classic series jumps right in on the action. Wade has a run-in with the oddball team "The Lightning Rods" but not before defeated the just-as-odd Deathtrap at his own game! Then, after a wonderfully-wrong teleporter malfunction, Deadpool and Blind Al are tossed into a 60s Spider-Man comic and, without completely $*@^ing up the timeline, Deadpool must pretend to be the nerdy Peter Parker and get back to the present with his Aunt May look-alike before anyone finds out! Then, back in present-day, he has a showdown with T-Ray that leaves him broken, physically and mentally and Typhoid Mary and the severe lack of Siryn make it all worse! Finally, Deadpool finds he's the chosen one and is taken to a secret lair within LL&L to fulfill his destiny!

These issues all make for some really good reading and Joe Kelly's writing shines here with some quirky crap that only Deadpool's pie-hole can spew. McGuinness and Denton start off the book with their art that we all know and love and Pete Woods continuing and the genius behind the Romita-clone Spider-Man issue! McDaniel also contributes in a more realistic tone that works well for the later issues. There's also the original Spider-Man issue thrown in to catch newer readers up on the issue 11 references. Issue 11 in particular was done very well as to copy the look Romita had to make it look like Deadpool really was in the 60s fighting Kraven! Overall, this was a nice collection of issues and the Spider-Man issue made it all that much better! Definitely one to get!
In the Heart of the Fire (Nameless Book 1)
In the Heart of the Fire (Nameless Book 1)
Dean Koontz has a new partnership with Amazon.com. He has released six stories today, the Nameless series, available only from Amazon in e-book format. The stories are priced at $1.99 each unless you are a Prime subscriber in which case they are free. They are longer than most short stories but shorter than a novella. Quite similar to the story he released through Amazon last year, Ricochet Joe. These stories will be followed by five full length novels, available only through Amazon, beginning next spring. As a book collector, I am not thrilled with this trend, but the handwriting has been on the wall for a while. I have been a supporter of e-books for a long time. I like the ability to always have a huge amount of reading material on-hand in a very small and light weight format, perfect for travelling. I also appreciate the ease of reading on a high quality e-reader (I have a Kindle Oasis). I am completely spoiled with the instant access to definitions and detailed Wikipedia material. I do still cherish the feel and smell of a book in my hands and the ease of access provided by a bookshelf full of volumes. I guess this will open up an opportunity for specialty publishers to design hardcover versions of e-books, assuming there are enough dinosaurs like me who are willing to shell out money for print versions of books.

The first story in the Nameless series, In the Heart of the Fire, did not disappoint. The main character had some past trauma that has resulted in complete amnesia. He can recall none of his life before two years ago, including his name. He receives digital communications from someone called the Ace of Diamonds who he has never met and does not remember how he first came into contact. Together they form a kind of vigilante squad that seeks out the worst evil in the world and take whatever action necessary to eradicate it. Since the story is so short, there is not much character development. Nameless is a very compelling character, though, and I am hoping we will learn much more about him in the coming stories. In this one, Nameless has been sent to a rural Texas town to take on a sheriff and deputy who are pedophiles and murderers, preying on unsuspecting victims who live in their county or who are just travelling through. The story has many of the hallmarks you come to expect from Koontz. The good and evil are black and white, with the evil being inhumanly terrifying. So far there is just hint of the otherworld as Nameless has flashes of visions, not only of the future, but also of past events where he was not present. And there is a dog: this time a German Shepard. The plot moves at a fast pace and tension build quickly. I read it in on sitting in less than hour. I can imagine that it would be easy to convert these stories to one hour TV shows. It is excellent entertainment. I am looking forward to the next one.
Bliss to You: Trixie's Guide to a Happy Life
Bliss to You: Trixie's Guide to a Happy Life
I am totally and completely a "Trixie Fan." I swear that if she had a Fan Club - I would want to be President of it. Or at least in charge of the membership drive! LOL

I believe that our pets do wait for us. And I feel sorry for the cynics that choose not to believe this. That said, I have never anticipated a book more than BLISS TO YOU. Frankly...it was worth the wait.

BLISS TO YOU is funny, sweet, informative and PROFOUND. It is the perfect gift to give every dog lover in your life. Also perfect for everyone whom you care about in your life who maybe is feeling depressed or doesn't seem to know what their purpose is in life.

I gave this book to my next-door neighbor who has experienced two very tragic losses recently with the sudden death of her son-in-law last year and 19-yr. old grandson a few months ago. She told me that the book "magically" opened to Step 7 about Loss. After reading it, she was so moved that she immediately called her daughter (the mother of her grandson) and READ this chapter to her. They were both comforted so much.

The novels by Dean Koontz reveal him to be an amazing author; Bliss to You proves that he is an amazing human being as well.

And remember! ALL of the proceeds from BLISS TO YOU go to support Trixie's favorite charity: Canine Companions for Independence! (CCI) This is SUCH a worthwhile organization and it helps so many individuals and soldiers who are incapacitated or in wheelchairs or deaf.

The book itself is beautiful and absolutely great for displaying on your coffee table. But what is INSIDE this book is even MORE beautiful: Lessons about life from our favorite TOTOS. (Trixie On The Other Side.)

Last of the Duanes
I selected this book because I first read Gray’s novels in public school and was facilitated with the characters, the action, and his descriptions of the western landscapes. This book grabbed my attention because it is newly published in Gray’s original format. I was not disappointed in my former interests. I will admit that it takes a certain “suspense of disbelief” to accept that the hero could live all these years without a real job and no monetary income. However, the detailed psychological description of the gunfighter’s mental reasoning was intriguing. Another reviewer mentioned that Gray was too wordy and verbose and white I understand that criticism, i will accept this fault(?) or perhaps flaw to get the action, romance, and old west’s values and culture. GREAT BOOK!!

最初に言っておきますと、右脚のヒザ装甲パーツG19の内側に写真のような突起がありました。
おそらく押し出しピンがへこんでいて、そこに樹脂が流れ込んでしまったものと思われますが、
このように突起がありますと取り付けは不可能で、これに気が付くまで小一時間ほど苦しみましたw
このような珍しい個体に遭遇するなんてむしろ逆に運が良かったりするのではと自分を納得させております
さて、キットの内容ですが、さすがνガン、ZZと並び平成を代表するキットと称される事だけあって
他の人がレビューされている通り、そのまま組んで眺めるだけで大満足な仕上がりです。
一点だけ参考になればいいですが、ファンネルの砲身パーツ、R1-①(R2-①)のゲート跡は
多少エグるような気持ちで完全に取り除いた方がいいです。ほんの少し厚みがあるだけで
ファンネルの展開が非常に硬くなりますので。
では、これから地獄のデカール貼りに入りたいと思いますw

J'ai découvert cette série l'année dernière, j'en suis tombée amoureuse et j'ai dévoré les 4 livres! L'histoire n'est certes pas forcément très originale mais la façon dont elle est écrite est magique! On se sent proche de Bella qui est une fille comme une autre et l'histoire d'amour est particulièrement bien racontée! De plus, l'intrigue nous tient en haleine et on a du mal à se séparer du livre!!
Et ce n'est pas destiné à un publique de jeunes filles uniquement: ma mère qui approche la cinquantaine l'a lu elle aussi et a beaucoup aimé!
Pour ce qui est de cette édition, elle est magnifique! J'avais les 4 livres en anglais mais je voulais me les racheter en français. Cette édition et son coffret sont superbes et j'ose à peine les toucher!

I bought this for my brother who is a huge Harry Potter fan. The print is just that: a print. It came rolled in a tube covered with plastic. I had my wife frame it to protect it. *It does not come with a frame as it is just the printed image*

The print is beautiful and did not smudge in the small amount of handling that we did with it. I was a bit skeptical of the quality for the price, but the print blew me away. The size was just as expected and fit into a 13x19 frame with matting.

Mastering Sudoku Week by Week: 52 Steps to Becoming a Sudoku Wizard
Mastering Sudoku Week by Week: 52 Steps to Becoming a Sudoku Wizard
When I bought this book, I was looking to increase my knowledge of advanced strategies, and the book definitely helped me, although there are a number of advanced strategies that are not covered.

The title suggests that 52 strategies are covered, but that is not the case. It turns out that 52 practice puzzles are provided.

The book starts with what I consider to be intermediate strategies, and never really explains the solving process to a complete newbie.

The book provides succinct descriptions of the covered strategies. The diagrams are mostly effective, the downside being that they are hard read at times due to the usage of fonts and highlighting in different shades of light green to describe the patterns, which while attractive caused me a bit of eyestrain. Don’t try reading these diagrams in dim light.

There is one area of strategy where the book is noticeably weak, and that is the X-Wing. While the basic X-Wing pattern is covered, there are many variations that are not described, or even mentioned. This is probably due to the publication date of 2007, which may have been before some of those variations were discovered.

Now that I have completed my research and written my own Sudoku book, which is available in the Kindle store, I can appreciate the effort that went into this book. I awarded the book 4 stars because it really did help me understand a couple key concepts, and it does a decent job describing the strategies that are covered. However, it must be understood that for beginners the book may be a bit hard to grasp, and people looking for the latest advanced strategies, the book is out of date.

I cannot say who ABSOLUTELY SUCKS more: Straight Talk or Blu.

I have basically been in bed since Feb - broken vertebrae in my back. It hurts to BREATHE. Can't feel my feet. NOT GOOD.

I am a Straight-talk customer, on VZW-CDMA network. I LovED this phone. Received, inserted my SIM, setup stuff and it worked. I thought.
I LOVED it!
A few days later I left home for first time and found I had no DATA service. Call StraightTalk. HOURS & HOURS later phone was basically bricked and my OLD phone was also hosed. ST NOW tells me I have to buy a new SIM. 3 hours of jackhammering my back to WM, $60 for a SIM. STILL can't fix it.
Order a NEW-New phone. It won't work either. And NOW ST tells me I need a NEW-New SIM for the NEW-New phone. ANOTHER 3 hours of pounding and still it won't work.

**NOW** they tell me I need a second PHONE - so they can talk to me while we do the same MADDENING CRAP OVER AND FRICKING OVER.

Three houts of HELL later and I am the proud owner of the cheapest phone and service I could find.

In the end, ST FINALLY said they give up.

I decided to go to the closest VZW STORE and try ONE MORE TIME.

Call Blu - I want to know if a "factory reset" REALLY makes it as it wasbwhen I got it. There are patches added to use VZW-CDMA.

I got *THE* most obnoxious, condescending just-plain-RUDE WITCH on the phone. After her GRILLING me for 20 minutes, I tell her For the eleventy-eigth time that I need an answer to my question. I DO NOT wish to continue the
"shut down phone.
Remove SIM.
REPLACE SIM.
Turn it on."
...circle-jerk for the Eleventy-NINTH time. She tells me "we have to go through troubleshooting...blah...blah."
NO.
WE DON'T.

OVER 60+ HOURS with S-T Tech support.
Around EIGHT hours with BLU.
~430.00 for 2 phones.
9+ hours of road-trips.
$180+ for 3 S-T SIM kits.
$60 for a "Burner" and service to enhance the circle-jerk.
And a partridge in a mother-humping PEAR TREE.

Amazon will refund my money for the phones, S-T REFUSES. THEIR stuff, bought on THEY ORDERED ME TO, OVER A HUNDRED HOURS all-told to no avail, and they will not even DISCUSS a refund.

Blu gets a poor rating because of a WITCH who should have been HELPING ME gives me WITCHITUDE. I've had ENOUGH.
Grey's Anatomy Season 17
Grey's Anatomy Season 17
I usually excitedly await the next episode. So far this season I find one disappointment after another. There’s a lack of creativity this season. I liked how the show keeps up with the Corona Virus. Each episode so far feels very long and full of continued flashbacks where we learn nothing new. The characters have become so stereotypical. They will always make the wrong choice. Please surprise us from time to time.

The constant forced injection of political propaganda is unnecessary, overdone and comes across as forced into the episodes rather than naturally, creatively learned. The media is saturated with this stuff. Consumers watch shows to escape and not be berated by more of the incessant chatter.

Darrell Lea, Regaliz blando, 7 oz (paquete de 8 unidades)
This is the second time I've ordered the case of Darrell Lea Mango Soft Eating Liquorice. I was VERY pleased with my first purchase so bought the packages again when I had enjoyed all I had originally purchased.The taste is wonderful. However, upon opening the first package, I found the product had changed in two meaningful ways--the liquorice "sticks" are now much shorter than the candy in my original order. Also, the liquorice is much softer and more "squishy" than previously. The sticks can't be pulled apart ! I've resorted to taking the single lump of candy out of the package and taking a bite from it and then putting what's left back in the package. I hope I find out that this was a "fluke" as I'd like to purchase the original type of liquorice again.
