Warren Buffett Accounting Book: Reading Financial Statements for Value Investing (Warren Buffett's 3 Favorite Books Book 2)
Warren Buffett Accounting Book: Reading Financial Statements for Value Investing (Warren Buffett's 3 Favorite Books Book 2)
The “Warren Buffett's Three Favorite Books“ series (this being book 2) certainly has provided a great foundation for new investors. If you want to get a good grasp without getting too heavy, submerge yourself and use the tools, links and videos provided every step of the way. If are unfamiliar with certain words just look them up. Before I struggle with Discount Cash Flow, and what exactly is Free Cash Flow. My cohort at University couldn’t explain it but could work out the problems. Now I know and can explain in simple terms. Couple that with actual investing and your investment advisor should be impressed. Mine was. In fact the relationship has evolved to us just discussing the markets and even now it seems I am more in tuned than the advisor. So much so they think I should invest in US markets, I am from Jamaica. Now I am looking to implement generational wealth and go through the actual 3 book’s referenced in the series. I would and have recommended this book to friends.

Note though: I take investing as serious as my 9-5, if not more seriously as I look to build generational wealth for my family.
The Best of Bob Dylan Chord Songbook
The Best of Bob Dylan Chord Songbook
This is an excellent book in every respect: the chords are appropriate to each song - not something that you always get, all the verses are shown and you can therefore choose to play/sing them all or not. I admit to a tendency to use Byrd's variants at times e.g. Chimes of Freedom, All I Really Want to Do, Mr Tambourine Man. But then it can be fun to actually bash the whole song out as with one of my favourites Positively 4th Street, which needs all the verses to get Bob's full sarcasm and disdain towards the person concerned.

Some songs e.g. All Along The Watchtower have deceptively few chords but need a bit of practice with strumming - something that is not helped with here but is down to personal choice. I say that because Bob himself performs different versions of his own songs form one gig to another, by all accounts.

The capo positions are helpful and so are the slight tuning changes. At first the book, being the size it is does not easily stay open at a page but persevere and keep practising and the book will stay open. The fact that some songs are over more than 2 pages just adds to the incentive to learn the verses!

And you can appreciate again the amazing storytelling and. I heartily recommend this book as a never ending source of enjoyment and insight into Bob's songs. It is also amazing value for money.
Sams Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days Eighth Edition
Sams Teach Yourself Java in 21 Days Eighth Edition
I thought that after five editions and some really nice comments I was in for a pretty good book. No way. In addition to the problems mentioned by PMD1973 there's a lot of code in examples that are not explained and the language is often unclear and apparently contradictory.

"A variable or method declared without an access control modifier is available to any other class in the same package. The Java Class Library is organized into packages such as javax.swing, which is windowing classes for use primarily in graphical user interface programming, and java.util, a useful group of utility classes.

Any variable declared without a modifier can be read or changed by any other class in the same package. Any method declared the same way can be called by any other class in the same package. No other classes can access these elements in any way."

Perhaps using a Kindle instead of an emulator would solve technical problems then one would only have to deal with the language problems that might be solved with significant editing.

Wolverine Men's W04727 Wolverine Boot
Wolverine Men's W04727 Wolverine Boot
After being a loyal customer for Timberland boots for many years, after not finding their new products meeting their old quality standards, I went looking for alternatives. I came across these Wolverines on Amazon. While the leather is imported, this particular boot is made in the U.S. The soles are sewn on, not just glued. The rubber tread gives good traction and is comfortable to walk around in or work in. I normally get standard cowhide leather boots but took a chance with these in Nubuck. These boots fit like they were made for me. I normally buy shoes and boots in 10 1/2 wide or 11 wide depending on the brand. These are regular size 11 and they fit just fine. I used silicone spray to waterproof the boots because we have a lot of rain and humidity in the area I live in. The boots I purchased arrived in perfect condition and does not have any issues of loose stitching or material defects. It was really nice to put on a new pair of boots that fit so well that I knew I would not have to work to break these in. They were ready to go out of the box. When I do wear the soles of these boots out, at least I will have the option to take them in to get resoled. Hopefully you too will get a pair of these boots that fit like mine so you can enjoy the pleasure I had in trying them on for the first time. Made my feet happy and has made me a solid Wolverine fan.
Use of Force: A Thriller (The Scot Harvath Series Book 16)
Use of Force: A Thriller (The Scot Harvath Series Book 16)
Use of Force brings back Brad Thor’s counterterrorism expert Scot Harvath, with non-stop action from page one to the very end. It’s highly advised that you set aside a good weekend to punch through this thriller because it’s very difficult to put down once you’re in for the ride. From the very beginning, Scot is surrounded by his team of warriors, ranging from Mike Haney & Matt Morrison, two bad ass former Force Recon Marines. Tim Barton, a Navy Seal. Tyler Staelin, A Delta Force Operative. And, Jack Gage, a Green Beret.

As a former Marine, myself, I can appreciate their dialogue between each other, both in battle and off. When you become so close to a small group of people and you literally go through hell and back with them. Certain things, such as joking and throwing “the bird” to each other becomes a part of your regular vocabulary. Brad Thor did not disappoint in that aspect at all. It’s part of serving that builds brotherhood and camaraderie. Very few authors, such as Joshua Hood, who I am using as an example since he’s been there and done that, capture this with such a perfect balance of real and “no way” that’s out of line. It’s clear Brad Thor does his research and puts in work to be as accurate as possible in every detail possible.

Along with those characters, we have some new ones. A very capable and attractive CIA Specialized Skills Officer Deborah Lovett. Paolo Argento, the leader of an elite special unit in Italy tasked with taking down organized crime and terrorists’ networks. You quickly realize, Argento is as motivated as Harvath in taking down terrorists and making his country safe.

Some returning characters include, “the old Man” or Reed Carlton. Which I have very mixed feelings about in regard to his future. I will keep it spoiler free, but once you’ve read it, I look forward to your thoughts. Along with him, is Lydia Ryan & Bob McGee. Both are very competent and provide the right amount of support our counterterrorism expert needs to complete his mission. Finally, my favorite, Nicholas, aka “The Troll.” He is as formidable and bad ass as ever in his craft. Always surrounded by his two loyal companions and no task is too difficult when it comes to cyber espionage.

In conclusion, Use of Force is a MUST READ. If it’s not on your summer must read list, put it on and get it to the top asap. You will not be disappointed. I give this book a very solid five stars, if I could give more I would. It’s THAT good and Brad Thor once again delivers with non-stop, heart pounding action from beginning to end.

One Piece, Vol. 1: Romance Dawn
One Piece, Vol. 1: Romance Dawn
A crazy and fun adventure based manga with strong characterization.

This is currently my favourite manga series for many good reasons !

First of all it's visual style is very strange and unique .... it's very borderline cartoonish , which some people may find a turn off. But if looks turn you off that easily, well I guess you're a shallow one then.

This drawing style simply oozes fun and freedom , which is what this title is all about ! The characters are very expressive and you can sense the unrestrained joy in the characters' chesire cat grins.

Unlike a lot of generic and restrictive styles of anime/manga , this title is full of outlandishly varied character designs .....some are very caricaturist , but you'd be surprised even alot of the weirdo looking characters play important parts !

Secondly this Manga series has really great characterization , probably the best I've seen from a long running title.
All the main characters have a strong background story which explains the way they act and is revealed at the right time.
This gives great development and depth to the characters and make them rather more likable than your typical manga/anime stereotypes.

Another good thing about this manga is that it doesn't take it self too seriously !
It's full of weird and wacky humor which is a refreshing change, from a lot of the over-melodramatic anime/mangas that take themselves too seriously.

There are really funny times throughout this series, a lot of them come from the immature bickering from the main characters, as none of them really get along .... hehe .... which is comedy chemistry gold. Also a lot of great physical comedy and laughable expressions can be found in this title also. Especially considering the strange body morphing powers of some of the characters.

The fight scenes are very imaginative also. A lot of your typical anime/manga battles tend to consist of who can hit/cut the hardest for the longest amount of time or who has the stronger energy blasts ..... but these battles are very imaginative , as the characters have more varied powers with proper weaknesses. The main hero is a rubber man for example and the artist can do all sorts of crazy things with this character visually.

Anyway this is only the first book of many great stories and will set up the background of two of the central characters.
Upon reading the first book , you'll get the idea of the free spirit of this series and you'll most probably like it.
The House Next Door: Thrillers
The House Next Door: Thrillers
What a disappointment! Three mediocre stories in one book with one title. None of the stories were especially good. Patterson should stick to what he does best and not attempt romance. I didn't even finish the third story. I ordered this book too long ago to return it unfortunately. Advertised as "pulse-pounding." I must have a very different definition of that description...

I think Patterson has gotten to the point now where he's just cranking out stuff for the sake of cranking out stuff. Someone should tell Mr. Patterson that his once loyal fans would rather he slow down and put time and effort into his characters and plot lines like he once did rather than cranking out another book every other week...With all his co-writers, one has to wonder how much of the work is really his anymore anyway.

Don't bother to waste your money on this book.

The Berenstain Bears Play a Good Game (Berenstain Bears/Living Lights: A Faith Story)
Ever since the son took over authoring these books, they have really gone downhill in quality. The new method of illustrating looks rough and unfinished and the writing is not the same caliber style as when the parents wrote it. With that being said, these new 'Little Lights' books are the first ones I've liked in the series in almost a decade. I am an adult collector of the First Time Book series, which I consider 'Little Lights' a part of, and I bought 3 of the 'Little Lights' books to sample and really have enjoyed them and plan on buying more. I'm looking forward to the Thanksgivng one due to be released soon and hope they continue with the series. I also hope they consider bringing back the Big Chapter books. I think they were better than the First Time Books and they explore the other minor characters more like Too-Tall and Queenie.
The West Point Story
The West Point Story
“The West Point Story” is the weakest of the early Warner Brothers musicals featuring Doris Day. This is not to say it’s bad or that fans shouldn’t see it, but that it’s simply not on par with the others. It lacks the charm of “Tea for Two” and “Romance On the High Seas” and even the humor of a relative lightweight like “It’s a Great Feeling”. And this is despite a great cast of top studio players like James Cagney and Virginia Mayo and up and comers like Gordon MacRae, Gene Nelson and Day herself (who gets only third-billing here). The cast is the reason to see this film, for they all do their best with weak material.

I can’t figure why Warner Brothers seemed to not care too much about this film after committing some of its top talent for the project including director Roy Del Ruth who had done major musicals like “Broadway Melody of 1936” and “The Desert Song”. First of all, why is it in black and white? Of course there were many great black and white musicals but this was no longer the ‘30s or ‘40s. By 1950 musicals and lighter fare were expected to be in color while black and white was used for darker and more serious films. It looks like an attempt to save money, but why? In a similar vein, the West Point location is not well-used and it’s clear from the unconvincing rear screen projection that the cast was never there. This could have been a very colorful romp in a unique setting.

Then there’s the plot, silly, improbable and absurd even for a musical. One never holds up high standards of reality with movie musicals, but the possibility of any of the events and character choices ever being remotely real doesn’t exist. The dialogue is okay, but the rest doesn’t hold water. Cagney, playing Broadway director Bix Bixby, is a fish out-of-water at West Point, but this potential source of comedy is only briefly alluded to. Doris Day is practically a guest star who doesn’t appear until almost halfway in and then seems to just occasionally drop by.

The songs, by Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn are slight and forgettable. Styne tended to save his best work for his Broadway musicals (“Gypsy”, “Bells Are Ringing”, “Funny Girl”). The songs here he could have dashed off in half an hour. He wrote “It’s Magic” for Day in “Romance On the High Seas” but here her most memorable tune is “10,432 Sheep”. Gene Nelson, who jumped on top of pianos and danced up bannisters in other musicals with Day is given some basic dance steps with a cane and little else. Gordon MacRae’s love song, “You Love Me” is nice while it lasts but that isn’t very long.

Cagney makes out best here, but Cagney was Cagney, taking command of any scene with a blink of an eye. He’s the principal character, on screen most of the time and is perfect as a conniving and irascible director given to sudden bouts of temper. Because of his perfection in gangster roles, some people forget he could dance up a storm. The studios liked to keep their actors in one type of role, and even Bogart and Gable were originally cast only in thug roles until the public responded more to them than to the blandly handsome actors the studio heads preferred as leading men. At least he had “Shanghai Lil” in “Footlight Parade” and his Oscar-winning performance in “Yankee Doodle Dandy”. I wish he had had these roles more often.

He is assisted by the beautiful Virginia Mayo and she gives one of her best performances here in a wise-cracking, comic role as Cagney’s sweetheart. It’s funny to see them as a romantic couple when their previous film had been the classic “White Heat” in which Mayo played the dissolute girlfriend to Cagney’s terrifyingly psychotic gangster, Cody Jarrett. Mayo could be really lively as she was here and in “Working Her Way Through College” but often, because of her looks, was given only decorative roles. There’s also a very early appearance by Alan Hale Jr. (later “The Skipper” in “Gilligan’s Island”) in a fairly substantial secondary role as a cadet.

All in all, it’s an okay film but with this cast it should have been so much better. Fans of Cagney and Day should see it but there are many better films with them for anyone interested in seeing either one. We can be most thankful to this film because it was from working with Day that Cagney recommended her to MGM to play Ruth Etting in the studio’s upcoming film, “Love Me or Leave Me”. Not only is this the only other film with the two stars together, but a powerful musical drama that is not to be missed.
Perilous and Fair: Women in the Works and Life of J. R. R. Tolkien
Perilous and Fair: Women in the Works and Life of J. R. R. Tolkien
In J.R.R. Tolkien's books women play an important, though limited, role. There are no female characters at all in The Hobbit (actually causing Peter Jackson to create one for his movie version), and while there are a number of important women in The Lord of the Rings, the characters who are present in every chapter are all male. This has led some critics to label Tolkien misogynistic or merely schoolboyish. This collection of essays does much to demonstrate that women's roles in Middle-earth, as well as Tolkien's own attitudes towards females, are much more varied and complex than popular belief would have it.

The 14 essays are divided into five groups: Historical Perspectives, Power of Gender, Specific Characters, Earlier Literary Contexts, and Women Readers. As a former history teacher myself I most enjoyed two of the essays in the first section: John D. Rateliff's "The Missing Women," which challenges the conception that Tolkien spent his life in masculine society by detailing the women with whom he had family, social, and professional connections and by emphasizing his strong, and at the time unusual, support for women's higher education; and also Sharin Schroeder's "She Who Must Not Be Ignored," which examines gender and genre in both The Lord of the Rings and in such Victorian "boy's books" as H.R. Haggard's "She," which Tolkien is known to have read and enjoyed. I also liked "Power in Arda," by Edith L.Crowe and "The Fall and Repentence of Galadriel" by Romuald I. Lakowski in the second and third sections for their insights into Tolkien's ever changing conceptions about his sub-creation. And again because of my background in history I really liked Melissa A. Smith's "At Home And Abroad," on Eowyn as a war bride! The fourth section's "The Valkyrie Reflex" by Leslie A. Donovan makes some fascinating analyses of Galadriel, Eowyn, Arwen, and (!) Shelob while Maureen Dunn's "Hidden in Plain View" makes some fascinating comparisons between Shakespeare and Tolkien's female characters. The fifth section has one essay, Una McCormack's "Finding Ourselves in the "(Un)Mapped Lands," which describes some intriguing fanfictions on some of Tolkien's lesser known female characters like Ioreth and Lothiriel (as well as some Middle-earth women created by the fanfiction writers themselves).

As with any good collection of critical essays readers will find much with which to agree and disagree, but every selection is well worth reading. Most importantly, readers' appreciation for J.R.R. Tolkien's work will be enhanced by the insights and conclusions to be found within Perilous And Fair.

Il mondo di Beatrix Potter
Il mondo di Beatrix Potter
Ho acquistato questo libro perché è l'intera raccolta dei racconti per l'infanzia di Beatrix Potter, illustrato dai disegni originali dell'Autrice.
La Potter è nata nel 1866 a Londra e in quegli anni le donne borghesi non avevano molte opportunità per rendersi economicamente indipendenti, ma ella aveva uno spirito libero e riuscì, con le sue storie per l'infanzia amabilmente illustrate, a pubblicare librini e a venderne in grande quantità tanto che la sua fama è arrivata fino ai giorni nostri. Considero perciò questa raccolta un documento letterario e storico di grande importanza, oltre che un volume di eccellente fattura, rilegato con una copertina rigida e una bellissima sovracopertina illustrata, il titolo scritto con lettere in argento impreziosisce ulteriormente il suo aspetto.
Le storie sono assai gradevoli e i protagonisti sono animaletti del bosco, topolini, gattini, coniglietti e bambini che agiscono nel mondo fantastico di Beatrix Potter.

Der Roman in Englisch ist doch um einiges besser. Manche Übersetzungen sind eher dilettantisch, z. Bsp. denn Begriff "Popeye" von einem der Figuren mit Glotzauge, oder "tough breed" mit harten Männer zu übersetzen ist sicherlich nicht was Wilbur damit ausdrücken wollte.

LEGO Fantastic Beasts Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures 75952 Building Kit (694 Pieces) (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
I LOVE this set! It is so much fun to build and play with. I bought it for myself because it looked so fun (my kids have a ton of sets, but this is the first one I bought for myself!) and I’m so glad I did!

I love that it comes with the 4 main characters! Jacob has his helmet for when he encounters the erumpant, which is hilarious. Tina, Queenie, and Newt are so cute and detailed as well. The niffler is tiny and adorable. So fun.

The creatures are great. They’re a bit on the simple side to build compared with the rest of the set, and they can fall apart a little easier than the rest. But they’re still great! I love the little egg and nest for the Occamy egg.

My favorite part of this whole set is that it turns into Newt’s suitcase! It has a keyhole sticker, as well as a “Muggle-worthy” sticker! It holds together super well - you can carry it by the suitcase handle and it won’t break. It’s sturdy and such an amazing design. I am so happy with this purchase! The little details are so fun! Any fan of Harry Potter/Fantastic Beasts will love this set - even if they aren’t a huge fan of legos. Totally recommend :)

I usually buy these EP's cause they are inexpensive but often have a very accurate showing of what you can expected from the full album. Basically it's the all-star version because they want you to be so impressed you buy the album too. Well, i would never buy the full album cause i can't tell what kind of band they want to be. There are several different genre's on here: blues "Cousin Randy" or R&B/Soul "Gunpower". Neither do they do extremely well. I love a good horn section but sadly they can't give you much here that makes me feel it's worth buying another album.
Getting Naked with Harry Crews: Interviews
Getting Naked with Harry Crews: Interviews
I think that even someone who has not read any of Harry Crews could be fascinated by this collection of interviews. Crews, a self proclaimed redneck from rural Georgia, has over a thiry five year career published some of the finest fiction to come of out the south. But unlike the more typical genteel southern writers (Faulkner, Ransom, Tate, Lytle, Foote, Percy or Price for example)whose books, even when they deal with poverty and hard times, tend to a 'literary' language and an oblique view of the subject matter, Crews, in contrast, is confrontational, colloquial, profane, angry, violent, shocking, grotesque and really, really funny. His is a unique voice and perhaps an acquired taste, but no question that it is the real stuff.
This book of interviews captures the writer (typically having just finished a project) at various stages in his publishing career from 1972 to 1997. To read all of these in one setting, as I did yesterday, is a bit much, because over the years some of the same questions (and answers) recur reqularly, so that it begins to seem a lot like a candidate's standard stump speech. One does see Crews presenting the same stock answers to questions about his use of 'freaks' in his stories, his favorite authors, the impact of drinking (and drugs) on his writing, and his specific writing habits. Still, each interview has at least one moment of unique insight and many are delightfully entertaining. Moments of pure Harry such as informing a female interviewer that despite being on the wagon his sexual powers have not deminished or, in another interview after speaking at length about being sober for a year, he downs several carafes of white wine because he doesn't really think it counts.
Those who have read and enjoyed Crews should really get a lot of pleasure from the perspective that these interviews give us of his work. Those who haven't read him can get a real flavor for his attitute and language. What you can't get from this book is the flavor of that genius for character and story that is uniquely his

UGI Magnetic Charging Cable 3 in 1 Cable Nylon Braided LED Lighting Cord Compatible with Android Micro USB Type C/USB C,Phone,Smartphone Tablet Devices (6.6ft L-Shape+3.3ft/6.6ft Straight,3 Pack)
I bought this for my tablet as my daughter swiped my charger to replace her phone charger. I liked the idea of the L-shaped option as I'm sick of my charging usb chords breaking right near the end that connects to the tablet. I also liked the idea of the materials the cord is made of.
However...
I THOUGHT this was a 3-pack of the same cable that could be used with all of the different sizes and styles of the magnetic tips included.
Nope. Each cord works with 2 of the 6 interchangeable tips. Problem is, not only are there 3 styles of cords and matching tips, but the sets of 2 tips are different sizes from the other styles of tips. For me this doesn't work well because I needed 3 of the same thing to have a few replacements when my tablet or my daughter's phone charger gets another broken cord.
I don't have enough electronics to get use out of the other cord/magnetic tip styles and/or sizes. You might find these useful if you have a ton of different size connection needs.
Power supply is dismal. The tablet kept scolding me, with pop-ups saying low power charger, please use the charging cable that was included with the tablet. ugh. I have been charging it for about 6 hours now and it was at 62% when I plugged it in. The charging cord and ac adapter provided with the tablet charges the battery in about 25 minutes with me using it.
know your needs and the specs for the accessories you buy! oi!
The unilateral deal breaker is how weak the magnetic connection is with this cord and the end you leave in the charging port. Barely move and the cord falls off. I had purchased another brand that I knew would fit my Samsung Galaxy Tab (I use it more than the other one), and I went magnetic with it too. It has a sturdy magnetic pull and stays attached to the end when I have to move the tablet around and when I put it down. It's got a strong enough magnet to grab the tweezers off my nightstand when I was putting it aside after charging... and they just hung off the end of it.. not falling off. It was funny, as I wasn't expecting it.

Android 10.0 Car Radio 7 inch Double Din Touch Screen DVD Player for GMC Chevy Silverado 1500 2012 in Dash Navigation Quad Core in Dash Touchscreen FM/AM Radio Head Unit
Didn't know exactly what to expect but I was surprised as this radio performed just as advertised. Delivered on time and was packaged well. Good documentation made it easy to install and the connectors fit the factory connectors. I expected to have to splice some wires but NO. Everything just functioned as if it was factory. I added the ODB2 and it paired and worked perfect. I did have a couple small issues with a couple features but the prompt and great support, it turned up to be a connector or two that were not seated good during my install. The only real issue, if you want to call it a Issue, was that with all the option connectors, it was a little tight getting everything tucked up behind the radio. Factory backup camera just worked and the steering wheel controls were good. The fit was perfect as you can see and overall I'm pleased with this purchase..

Just received it and used it for regular white rice. Fast forward 20 min later, the best rice I've had for years came out. Moving from $15 walmart rice cooker to this one is a huge jump and I can definitely tell the difference in the quality. the only bad part is low-carb diet just got so much harder with this little piece of magic!

the cleaning is extremely easy. The inner pot does not stick at all. and most parts are removable so they can be cleaned easily. The rice cooker even came with steam cleaning option but I heard from some friends that it only does a mediocre job.

IH technology + pressure cooking did the charm cooking rice fast and evenly. The main reason I bought this Cuckoo rice cooker is that my 5 yr old $20 rice cooker started sticking and takes forever to cook. Cleaning was hard as it almost always requires presoaking, and 2 cups of brown rice takes over an hour to cook. It had gotten really annoying coming home at 6pm knowing everything would be cooked in 20 min but rice won't be ready.

So if you are currently using a cheap rice cooker and hesitant about the price, click buy. there is no going back once you tried the good rice.

Addition 6/20/2020
I tried to cook mixed brown and white rice under turbo mode and it worked like magic. I was used to my brown rice being dry and hard so that I don’t eat much, but with this one, I could hardly tell it was brown rice and ended up finishing my entire bowl. So much for low carb lol

Okay, first of all... this is some good stuff. IF you like the black licorice that is traditionally sold in the U.S. you might not like this. This is the, I guess I should say, European salty fish. When I say Swedish salty, I am comparing it to the salty licorice you often find in Sweden. I couldn't find it here so I tried this kind. Mmmmmm nom nom!
Not all salts are created equal mind you. So this is a particular type flavor salt. To me it's delicious. to others might not be. I've seen reviews on some of the "salty" licorice products and some are eew to salty what is this... but, this is like I said a particular flavor profile, and it's spot on.
