How to Retire on Dividends: Earn a Safe 8%, Leave Your Principal Intact
How to Retire on Dividends: Earn a Safe 8%, Leave Your Principal Intact
I have been a fan of Brett Owens for some time now and after reading hundreds of articles written by him for his Contrarian Outlook and I decided to join his Contrarian Income Report newsletter. I started investing in several of the Closed- end Funds he recommends and for the past year I have been pleased with the dividends and how the stocks are doing in general. He has recommended that we sell a few of the stocks for various reasons and I have followed what he has recommended. In one case the stock price was headed down and we got out before that happened. In another recommendation he said sell and take the profit. I did and made $800.00. When I ran across this book he and Tom Jacobs have written I wanted it. It explains a great deal about the market and how stocks react to good news and bad. It explains how to retire on dividends and leave your principal intact and I am all about that. I retired in 2006 and I have multiple investments. I started with laddered CD's and as they matured the interest rates had dropped to levels I could not accept so I bought a mutual fund which has paid me every month since 2013 but the value of the mutual fund has gone down almost as much as I have been paid. To sell it today I would still be money ahead but I would not get all my principal back so I am holding it and collecting the monthly dividend. I also bought several Annuities one has matured and I bought another one with a different company. I also have a bond fund that provides monthly income. I was invested in the stock market also and just doing fair. I was making money but it was taking for ever using drip plans for several of the better known companies. As interest rates were going down I needed a way to make more income by making my money work harder for me and I found Brett Owens. He has pointed the way to Closed-end Funds and following his advice I am making more money following his Contrarian Income Report advice than I was on my own. I highly recommend you get this book and if you like his advice join his Contrarian Income Report and he recommends certain stocks and tells you what price to pay and if he sees something going wrong he will recommend you sell NOW. On the recommendation he made to sell now I did loose 2% of my investment but for the others I have been averaging a little better that 8%. If you are not like me and have to have the hard copy you can get this book online cheaper and read it then decide if you to want to join his Contrarian Income Report newsletter. He will give you monthly updates and if he sees bad news you will be the first to know it and get out while you still have 98% of your capital intact. I give his book 5 stars. Of the 19 stocks he is currently recommending I own 10 of them. All of them are making me money.
Wheels for the World: Henry Ford, His Company, and a Century of Progress
Wheels for the World: Henry Ford, His Company, and a Century of Progress
The first 2/3 of the book goes on about Henry Ford-the man- NOT the company. There is no true in-depth insight about the cars themselves. Then, the worst part of the book is in it's lightly skimmimg the waters of the postwar years. With the dramatic ideas of the Crestliner, the Victoria, the OHV V-8, the Lincoln Capri, the Skyliner glass-top, the Crown Victoria, the Skyliner Retractable hardtop, Lincoln Continental Mk. !!, the Edsel, the Falcon, the Mustang and Shelby Cobra; all are covered through very quickly, if at all, without the great details of the first 2/3rds of the book. At one point he succumbs to cutesy car songs, which completely let me down (he doesn't know his music any better than he does the '50s cars). The book was fairly good, but I was expecting SO MUCH better, especially on the postwar years.
Undefended Love
Undefended Love
The material in this book is very good. Reading it underscored my awareness of my own personal behavior well. It also taught me many new things. It does so in a good conversational style without becoming over-the-top verbose or too chatty. I find that many books about self-help go into extensive, lengthy, and arduous detail of the story underlining the one line sentence at the end of the chapter which they are attempting to convey to you. This book does not do that.

It goes into more detail than I would prefer and that I felt would be necessary to get the jist of things, but it doesn't do so by such a wide margin as to feel unuseful.

My partner and I also took the author's course of the same title. Know that if and when you go to that course, you will not be working together with your partner. It is not a "couples course". It's a course on personal self exploration using a step-by-step procedure to open your eyes to how you personally invite the difficulties you complain about into your own life. I would recommend it, though I had to wait a couple of years for it to be offered. There was also a waiting list.

The author has incredible insight and awareness. This was clearly evidenced in the course, which I took in 2016, many years after she wrote this book. The book has all of the seeds of this awareness, though IMO not quite the depth of spiritual understanding and intuition which she exhibits today. By the way, by "the author" I mean Jett Psaris. I have not met Marlena Lyons.

So if you're looking to expand your own personal self awareness, and are not afraid to look within for the cause of the difficulties in your life, then this book can help you. I have read many books on self-help and personal awareness, and this is one of the top 15-20% of those.
Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, Vol. 3
Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, Vol. 3
All the songs are great, but only a few of them are hits. And in his usual eccentric fashion, Bob Dylan skipped over some actual hit singles to make room for more obscure items which the casual fan (me, for example) might have missed. The record covers the years from 1973-1994, an era which began with one of Dylan's most beloved albums ("Blood and the Tracks") followed by some very weird stuff.

The hit singles would be "Tangled Up in Blue," "Hurricane," and "Gotta Serve Somebody." Also, this album has the original versions of two tunes which were massive hit singles as cover versions: "Forever Young" (covered by Rod Stewart), and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" (covered by Guns N Roses.)

Dylan could easily have found 9 better-known songs to fill put the album, even without going back before 1973 and/or mining the several live albums he put out in the 1970s and 1980s. But could he have found 9 better songs? Probably not--- but possibly. In any case, the 9 songs he did choose are all extremely interesting.
Starting Out with Java: From Control Structures through Objects (6th Edition)
Starting Out with Java: From Control Structures through Objects (6th Edition)
oh boy here we go >_>

So I'm a college student at k-state. Why review this book then? well I actually am enjoying this book. As a person who hates text books because they are fairly difficult to understand (and I have aspergers), this book is the first text book I'm enjoying.
This book goes over a lot of stuff. From simple basics to some advance. I'm not sure who "Software Engineer" is but this book DOES go over the basics and moves towards some advanced stuff.

is it worth the money?
That depends on the person buying it. I'd say rent it first then buy it, take note you will be paying more in the end if you do that. I did do that and I have no regrets as a person who seriously enjoys programming.

What does it come with?
The book IF PURCHASED NEW, will have a code you can use to get access to some goodies like videos and files that have the code (i reccommend coding it down yourself for a better learning experience).

Do you reccomend the book?
Oh yes certainly. Again if your not a huge fan and just checking it out or simply taking the class to earn credits, just rent it. If your getting it for k-state and are just getting into the programming class, Start on chapter 2, that's where the coding begins so you'll get a better start for the semester.

Why 4/5 and not 5/5?
two things, it doesn't go over MVC (model-view-controller) which my prof does go over. and this book is paper back, whish it was hardback so that it would last me longer.
Programming: 4 Manuscripts in 1 book : Python For Beginners - Python 3 Guide - Learn Java - Excel 2016
Programming: 4 Manuscripts in 1 book : Python For Beginners - Python 3 Guide - Learn Java - Excel 2016
I have no idea if the physical version is any different, but the Kindle edition of this set is a mess. There are constant spelling and grammar errors that are highly distracting and detract from the credibility of the author and add a very amateurish feel overall. Some quick examples just from the first few chapters include the author not being able to decide whether "Python" should be capitalized or not (he constantly switches back and forth), Windows being spelled as "widows", and using "Window's" as the possessive form of "Windows". The most obnoxious thing about this book, however, is that there is literally a full-page advertisement for the Audible version after EVERY CHAPTER.

As for the actual subject matter - it's not much better. I am a complete beginner to Python and the author frequently uses terms that a beginner would not know, and will gloss completely over things that would be confusing to a beginner without further explanation. At one point near the beginning, he completely glosses over multiple topics in the span of a few pages and then declares that I "should be able to complete several projects at this point".

I have owned various Kindle devices for over a decade now, and this is by FAR the most amateurish work that I've ever seen masquerading as some kind of professional production. I picked it up for free, and I still feel like I was ripped off. Save your time and skip this one, and definitely don't spend any kind of money for it.
Marvel Avengers Bend and Flex Iron Patriot vs Thanos
Marvel Avengers Bend and Flex Iron Patriot vs Thanos
Il s’agit d’un jouet Marvel Avengers.
Iron patriot VS Thanos.
Recommandé à partir de 4 ans.
Il contient donc une figurine Ironman et une figurine Thanos qui peuvent se poser sur un socle ( voir photos ).
Ce même socle peut se mettre sur les mains façon « attaque ».
Les 2 figurines mesurent environ 15 cm.
Elles sont solides, les finitions et la qualité sont bonnes .
Esthétiquement elles ont du style !
Le plus, c’est qu’elles sont flexibles : au niveau des bras des jambes et des hanches.
Attention par contre elles ne sont pas extensibles.
Bien positionnées elles tiennent debout sans le socle .
Mon fils peut recréer des batailles et ainsi faire travailler son imagination.
Le prix reste un peu élevé au vu de la dimension des figurines.
C’est tout de même une bonne idée de cadeau pour tous les fans des Avengers.
J’espère que ce commentaire vous sera utile, si vous avez des questions n’hésitez pas.

Game of Thrones Season 3
Game of Thrones Season 3
If you’re looking at reviews of season three then it is inevitable that you’re already captivated by this epic masterpiece of TV fantasy. We re-watched seasons one and two as a bit of essential preparative revision and have, as with previous seasons, watched this one twice back-to-back. A second viewing is essential, especially as we have a whole raft of new characters, to really get to enjoy the fiendish complexity of the interwoven narrative threads. Some very minor spoilers follow in the next paragraph…

The seven kingdoms of Wersteros become ever more disparate as the civil war continues with Rob Stark leading the men of the North against the unspeakable King Joffrey while nobody is paying any attention to events north of the wall with Jon Snow as the Wildlings head south against the inexorable approach of winter and concomitant White Walkers. At the same time, Daenerys with attendant splendid dragons is trying to raise an army to help restore the Targaryen throne while Stannis licks his metaphorical wounds and falls further under the thrall of the red witch. That just covers the main story arcs. Add into that mix Arya’s journey and the Brotherhood Without Banners, Jamie Lannister & Brienne and Bran’s very separate quests, the ascendancy Margaery Tyrell and, as ever, the irrepressibly brilliant Tyrion and the improbably likeable Varys hold King’s Landing together as things are not all sweetness and light in the house of Lannister.

There is just so much going on in so many places that it is impossible to grasp all of the subtleties even after a second viewing. Just for a change, there is a really useful Blu-ray special feature – the ‘in episode guide’ allows you to see who is doing what where; really handy on the first viewing with so many new characters to keep track of.

With a lot of getting from A to B and a lack of set piece scenes, this season gives the feeling of getting all of the chess pieces in the right place ready for a tumultuous fourth season. That’s not to say, however, that there aren’t more than a few surprises along the way. Well done, again, HBO – splendid stuff.
Doctor Mordrid: REMASTERED
Doctor Mordrid: REMASTERED
BOTTOM LINE: As unrefined as it was, I was still glad to get a chance to discover DR. MORDRID. Jeffrey Combs' fine performance and some fun magic stuff kept me entertained. The film is an interesting "what if?" look at what a Dr. Strange movie could have looked like on the big screen back in the day. It's an entertaining movie (despite the crass language and short runtime) even without the brand recognition. Too bad there were no further adventures for the Master of The Unknown. 4 STARS

THE STORY: A centuries-old battle between two otherworldly sorcerers is set for a final showdown here on our mortal plane. In the no spells-barred confrontation between Good and Evil... who will win?

BACKGROUND: This is a very thinly-veiled re-write of Marvel Comics' Dr. Strange. Back in the 90's, before Marvel was the powerhouse it is today, they were licensing out any characters they could in order to generate money. It may sound hard to believe, but Marvel was close to bankruptcy at that time. Full Moon & Charles Band purchased the rights to Marvel's Sorcerer Supreme and were all set to bring him to the big screen. Band & company wanted to make it as big and splashy as their limited funds would allow, but in the end Full Moon lost the rights to Strange shortly before they were able to begin filming. Not wanting to waste the considerable time & money invested in the movie's preparation, Band simply re-tooled the script (with a few needed changes to keep Marvel's lawyers off his back), and thus Dr. Strange morphed into DR. MORDRID: MASTER OF THE UNKNOWN.

THOUGHTS (contains spoilers): A young, refined-looking Jeffrey Combs gives another excellent performance, as the titular physician. (Not sure just exactly what field he holds a doctorate in, though.) Combs plays the part very straight and restrained, thus his Mordrid is a thoroughly believable character, despite all of the hocus-pocus. Regrettably however, pug-faced lunkhead Brian Thompson churns out yet another in his long career of scenery-chewing offerings as Kabal (the evil Yin to Mordrid's morally-just Yang); sneering at everyone and bellowing like a buffalo. The production design is pretty impressive for a Full Moon picture. Mordrid's "sanctum sanctorum" apartment looks especially cool; lots of busy detail & eye candy to take in. The stop-motion effects from vet animator David Allen are sweet. The museum backdrop at the film's climax allows him & his team to bring skeletons of a T-Rex and a Mastodon(?) to life in bony battle, (representing the magics of Kabal and Mordrid, respectively). The optical effects used for Mordrid's & Kabal's magical powers were nicely realized. The floating castle, apparently some sort of otherworldly magical prison for evildoers, was a cool concept. I also liked Mordrid's friend Gunner, the beefy, brutish castle guardian.

All told, I really only have two gripes with DR. MORDRID. First is how criminally short the film is; barely clocking in at 74 minutes even WITH the credits! The truncated running time hurts the development of the characters, and the big battle between Kabal & Mordrid feels rushed and ends much too soon, which I found very disappointing. I thought their confrontation was a sort of test with the two foes "feeling each other out" for strengths and weaknesses, in order to properly prepare for what I expected would be a much more fully-involved final showdown later. But nope... that's all folks. My other complaint is in regards to the poor decision on the part of the filmmakers to needlessly throw in several instances of rude, abrasive language. These just feel wildly inappropriate, added solely for the shock factor and to justify an R-rating, thus in keeping with the majority of Full Moon's other horror product. (There's also a totally unnecessary female full-frontal nude scene which should have been dropped.) If the swearing & nudity had been eliminated, DR. MORDRID would have been a fine family-friendly fantasy film. As it is, even mature comicbook fans may flinch at the crass F-bombs liberally sprinkled throughout the film's second half. Younger kids should definitely be kept away.

THE BLU-RAY: This Blu-ray release for DR. MORDRID looks good, though none of Full Moon/Empire Pictures' stuff was ever particularly clean or professional-looking even when first released. The transfer is fair but not as stunning as many, much older films that have been adapted for high-def. Video is clean, with no artifacting or pixelation that I could detect. Audio portion is strong, with a well-balanced soundmix. There are several bonus feature supplements that up the value of this release for fans and collectors.
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
This is an extended version of Return of the King. The movie is spread across 2 discs and has extra scenes that were cut from the original. The last 2 discs are full of extras. Each part of the trilogy had a theme. The first was about the costs the Fellowship of the Ring would suffer on their quest to destroy the Ring. The second was about not giving up hope. This the third was whether the Fellowship could overcome the power of the Ring and complete their task.

The start of the film lays out the highs and the lows the Fellowship had and would face. First, there’s the tale of how Smeagol found the Ring and turned into Golem. He killed his friend to gain possession of it and then went through a terrible transformation. That was a warning about what the Ring could do to Frodo the Ring Bearer. Then Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli, and King Theoden come across the defeated wizard redoubt of Isengard. That actually leads to one of the deleted scenes which is quite good about what happened to Saruman. That was Sauron’s first loss.

The movie has two main parts. On the one hand, Frodo, Sam and Golem are heading towards Mount Doom to destroy the Ring. On the other, Aragorn, Gandalf, Legolas, Gimli, and company have to defend against the armies of Sauron, first in Gondor and then in Mordor. Frodo’s story is about personal sacrifice, while Aragorn and the others deal with the large battles.

Out of the three extended versions of the Lord of the Ring trilogy this is by far the best one. The cut scenes really fill out the story and have some great images to them. In the other two movies the additions were nice and interesting but not essential. This one is actually better than the original release.
Horton Hatches the Egg
Horton Hatches the Egg
I didn't realize until "Horton Hears a Who" how cruel Dr. Seuss books can be at times. I don't love how the monkeys capture, whip, beat, and tease Horton in that book. So it didn't come as a complete surprise to encounter the scene in "Horton Hatches the Egg" when hunters point rifles at Horton to kill him. That made for some awkward explaining / avoidance with our 2 year old. But she does enjoy this book.

It's also worth noting the illustrations in this book look much more sketched -- at times they even seem unfinished -- compared to other Dr. Seuss books.
Belarusian Waltz
Belarusian Waltz
As someone who came from Belarus this guy starts off nice and all but as you hear from his family he is just a horrible human who follows extreme nationalism, one interview especially highlighting it. When he comes to see his former lover and who has a daughter by him.
She highlights his behaviour towards her and her daughter which is best described as A#43le. Examples she highlights - being pregnant with his child (they already broke up) and meeting him and his new girlfriend at movie theater, he helped his girlfriend with her bag - a bit heavy and ignored her - heavy with his child!
when little girl was 6 she made a home-style art gallery of her pictures, he was invited and refused by saying: "I leave you alone why are you bothering me?"
Ending with him getting married to his wife and calling her and asking her for her blessing - imagine the nerve! She said it kind of shocked her that he called for her blessing and didn't even apologize or anything.

His answer - well you are Russian, if you were a Belrussian girl I would have taken care of you and apologized and all, but you are Russian, why are you here and not in Russia go back to Russia.
(FYI: She move to Belarus possibly to go to school/work etc over 27 yrs ago when it was still USSR)

Imagine if someone from Georgia moved to Wisconsin and had the same treatment or even French who work in Britain or vice versa.
This guy is not a hero or opposition member to Lukoshenko, he makes Lukoshenko seem like a nice guy. I shudder to think what he would be if he was a President - new Nazi party?
Manuscrito Encontrado en Accra (Spanish Edition)
Manuscrito Encontrado en Accra (Spanish Edition)
El Manuscrito encontrado en Accra, es un deleite espiritual para estos tiempos que están llenos de crisis y estrés, leerlo te da un sentido liviano en el alma y te da además buenos tópicos para conversar con los amigos y pareja.

El formato de esta nueva edición de Coelho tiene mucho parecido con el libro de Kalil Gibran el Profeta, el cual me fascino. Al leer el Manuscrito encontrado en Accra me recuerdó todos esos sabios diálogos del Profeta con los oyentes.

Si tienes la edición vintage español, tal vez encuentres como yo que los fragmentos más intensos están desde la página 69, donde se empieza a hablar sobre, la dirección a seguir, pasas por, el amor jamás quiso conversar conmigo, ya no puedo mirar atrás y recuperar los momentos perdidos, háblanos del sexo y culminando con qué deben decirles los sobrevivientes a sus hijos. Esos son intensos y nos dejan reflexiones que te calan.

La soledad no es la ausencia del amor sino su complemento.

Benditos aquellos que no temen la soledad. Que no se asustan con la propia compañía.
En la soledad sabrán decidir si vale la pena pedirle que regrese, o si debe permitir que ambos sigan un nuevo camino.

Algunas personas dicen: <no soy capaz de despertar el amor de los demás.> Pero en el amor no correspondido siempre existe la esperanza de que algún día será aceptado.

Una Vida nunca es inútil. Cada alma venida a la Tierra tiene una razón para estar aquí. Las personas que realmente hacen bien a los demás no intentan ser útiles, sino llevar una vida interesante. Casi nunca dan consejos, sino que sirven de ejemplo.

El amor es un acto de fe, no un intercambio.

Estas son algunas de las frases que más me han gustado en lo que voy del libro.

"...Porque el Amor es libre y su voz no está gobernada por nuestra voluntad ni por nuestro esfuerzo. Todos los amantes saben eso, por no se conforman. Creen que pueden seducirlo con sumisión, poder, belleza, riqueza, lágrimas y sonrisas."
Totalmente de acuerdo, el amor es libre, es por eso que nosotros tenemos que decir, "decreto que soy dueña de mi libertad y nadie tiene el derecho de intentar sosegarla y dominarla."

Sólo es amado y respetado quien se ama y se respeta a sí mismo. Jamás procures agradar a todo el mundo o perderás el respeto de todos. Página 106. Una de mis más favoritas. Si las personas no somos capaces de querernos a nosotros mismos no podremos en verdad amar a alguien más.

La amistad es un acto de fe en otra persona, y no un acto de renuncia. Pág. 106. Lo mismo creo para el amor, en sí la amistad es amor. La fe en las personas con las que queremos compartir nos hace ser sus amigos.

No importa cómo te estés sintiendo, todas las mañanas levántate y prepárate para emitir tu luz. Pág. 109. Todo ser humano en la faz de la tierra cada día que se levanta debería vivir bajo este mismo lema, emitir luz propia, llena de amor, tolerancia y comprensión hacia los demás.

Para algunos de los lectores de Coelho como a mí les habrá sorprendido leer sobre un tema tan simplista, pero complicado y actual como lo es "la elegancia", lo digo así por ser un tema en que las personas se han sumergido en la sociedad que contamos hoy. La elegancia se ha disfrazado y se a arrancado su verdadero tributo, se le ha tratado de demonizar, pero los más sabios saben que la elegancia es una virtud de Dios. "La elegancia se alcanza cuando todo lo superfluo es descartado y descubrimos la simplicidad y la concentración: mientras más simple y más sobria la postura, más bella será." Pág. 114.
Complete Four Just Men (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)
Complete Four Just Men (Tales of Mystery & the Supernatural)
A good mixture of long stories and, in my opinion better still, short stories about the Just Men. The writing is a little mechanical at times, not surprising considering the prodigeous output of Edgar Wallace, but the stories are very ingenious
Kiss the Girls
Kiss the Girls
Today’s book review is going to James Patterson’s Kiss the Girls. Don’t really have anything to say right up front, so let’s get going.

Synopsis: In Los Angeles, a reporter investigating a series of murders is killed. In Chapel Hill, North Carolina, a beautiful medical intern suddenly disappears. Washington D.C. USA Alex Cross is back to solve the most baffling and terrifying murder case ever. Two clever pattern killers are collaborating, cooperating, competing--and they are working coast to coast.

James Patterson followed the same formula that bothered me in the first book. Whenever Alex Cross was being concentrated on it was in first person, but the rest of the book was done in third person. Now, if Alex was talking in flashback form I could understand the different point of views, but not if it’s part of the story. I’m a firm believer that you should stick to one point of view, with exception to the flashback thing I spoke of.

The writing is still as good as ever. Patterson does have a way for captivating the reader. With simple writing, short paragraphs and chapters, and quick action the book flows easily. Patterson started off with the murderers just starting off, and it goes from there.

Alex Cross wasn’t originally supposed to be involved in the case. That was until his niece went missing. He more or less bullied his way into the investigation. The FBI didn’t like him being involved. Nor did the local police. The FBI eventually warmed to Cross and his partner, but the locals didn’t.

The main action came with something that happened to one of the killers that never happened before. Someone escaped from his fortress. Once she did, Alex knew he was going to be able to solve the case.

The only other problem I have with the book is another problem I had with the first book. Cross was acting too repressed. There is no way that a man that smart would be so dumb when it came to racism. Just my opinion on that.

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. Sets the stage for what is to come for Cross.

Rating: 4 out of 5
The Berenstain Bears and the Bully
The Berenstain Bears and the Bully
I love the Berenstain Bears books but this one was horrible. There was no good lesson on how to deal with a bully. First, sister smarts off and gets an attitude with the bully for something that may have been an accident so of course the bully gets offended and beats her up. This is just a minor issue. The big problem I have is that the book spends WAY too much time detailing how sister trained (in one weekend) how to fight back. While she doesn’t seek out the bully she doesn’t fight in self defense, she stands up for a bird instead of trying to talk to the bully or tell a teacher. The story just breezes over a suggestion that the bully might have troubles at home and the book mentions that talking is better than fighting but gives absolutely no detail as to why except for the fact that sister ALMOST got in trouble for fighting too. No other appropriate alternatives were given and even though there is one sentence that clearly states talking is better than fighting back, the story dwells way too much on self-defense and no doubt ultimately sends the wrong message to kids. I will be sneaking this book out of the kids’ library collection as soon as possible.
Roald Dahl's The BFG
Roald Dahl's The BFG
This is The BFG made in 1992, produced & directed by Brian Cosgrove, not Disney's version in 2016. The movie was very warm, creative & imaginative; it felt good to stay away some of the sensation overload and went back to touches that were more gentle and intimate. According to Cosgrove, this was one of the only adaptations, based on one of Roald Dahl's novels, that Dahl himself actually liked.

Naruto - Tome 5 (Shonen Kana) (French Edition)
Je suis déçu il y a un problème avec ce tome. Il Manque les pages 97 à 128. En faite quand j'arrive à la page 97 sa reprend à la page 65 jusqu'à 96 et ensuite ça reprend la suite normalement à partir de 129 jusqu'à la fin. Sinon il était en très bonne état. Mais étant pressé de l'avoir dans ma collection et de lire la suite sans qu'il m'en manque 1 morceau je l'ai racheté en magasin.
Unter Geiern (Hörspiel nach Karl May)
Unter Geiern (Hörspiel nach Karl May)
Das Hörspiel lohnt sich und da es nicht aus den 60er oder 70er ist, sondern aus dem Jahre 2016 hat es mich um so mehr erstaunt, dass man sich hier doch stark an das Original gehalten hat. Auch die wenigen künstlerischen Freiheiten, wie z.B. die einleitende Szene mit den Leano Geiern und deren Opfer, sind sehr gut gelungen. Es ist auch erst die zweite Hörspielumsetzung des Stoffes in dem Bloody Fox eine junge Stimme hat, es gab bisher nur das zweiteilige Hörspiel von der Firma Maritim, bei der Bloody Fox eine junge Stimme hat, bei allen anderen Umsetzungen war die Stimme viel zu alt (Leider auch bei den Umsetzungen von Old Surehand). Trotz allem hatte ich gorße Bedenken wie denn Bob umgesetzt worden ist, denn nach unserer deutschen politischen Korrektheit habe ich befürchtet, das man Bob ein hervorragendes Deutsch sprechen lässt, was wiederum die Spannung aus dem Thema genommen hätte, insbesondere in der Szene wenn Bob auf Tobias Preisegott Burton alis Weller trifft, man hätte die in Bob aufkommende Aufregung und Wut nicht so deutlich spüren können. Ich bin sehr froh, dass man sich entschieden hat Bob der original Vorlage gleich zu lassen, ebenfalls hätte man die Traurigkeit von Sana auch nicht so herzergreifend spüren können, hätte man nicht die Sprachform des Originals verwendet. Sehr gut gelungen ist die musikalische Umsetzung des Textes von Sana, das der Szene von der Mutter die sich nach ihrem Sohn Bob sehnt, der vor langer Zeit an andere Farmbesitzer als Sklave verkauft und somit von der Mutter getrennt wurde, eineentsprechende Dramatik verleiht. Ohrenkneifer will zwar keine Serien produzieren schön wäre aber noch eine Umsetzung von Old Surehand, der direkt an den "Geist des Leano Estercado" anschließt und des selten oder bisher garnicht Vertonten Stoff von "Winnetou und die Felsenburg" Es empfielt sich auch die 17 minütige Featurerette am Ende des Hörspiels anzuhören.

My 7 yo wanted some grey sweater boots that resembled a pair I have. These were the closest I could find to the style she wanted. I am not sure I even read the reviews; b/c once she saw them on the screen, she just had to have them. I wish I would have read the reviews very carefully. These boots hardly lasted through one season. Granted she loved them and wore them often, the soles, which are very soft the begin with, literally separated completely from the shoe when she wore them to school recently. Order a size or two up b/c they're made very small! I probably should have sent them back in the first place; but she loved them so much I let her keep them. They have now made their way to the trash can and we are on the hunt for another pair of grey sweater boots.

Avevo già letto, in realtà provato a leggere, il libro anni fa, durante le scuole superiori, assegnato da un insegnate. Sarà stato proprio per l'obbligo di lettura, il libro non mi era piaciuto.
Avevo poi visto il film. E mi era piaciuto molto.
In una serata di pioggia di fine estate, anni dopo, ho rivisto il film, e ho deciso di rileggere il libro.
Sono passati molti anni dalla prima lettura giovanile e, oggi, devo dire che il libro mi è piaciuto molto.
Anche se, devo ammettere che se non avessi visto il film, avrei avuto difficoltà a seguire la trama, pur per quanto questa differisca dalla trasposizione cinematografica in molti punti.
D'altro canto, alcune scene, le ho trovate addirittura più terrorizzanti ed emozionanti nel libro.
Il finale, soprattutto, completamente diverso da quello del film, è stato veramente bello e sorprendente.
Purtroppo in ritardo, vista la prematura scomparsa di Crichton, ho scoperto un autore notevole, dalla prosa scorrevole e dalle ricerche accurate.
Sicuramente non mi farò mancare gli altri libri di questo scrittore.
Consigliato, senza dubbio, innanzitutto agli amanti dei dinosauri e, naturalmente, agli amanti della buona lettura.

Triangle (Thrillers t. 7465) (French Edition)
FOLLET me surprend depuis des années par ses facettes. Des sagas, des romans classiques, de l'espionnage, et même semble-t-il, des livres pour les tout jeunes...
Triangle est un livre solide, le récit regorge de surprise et use sans le dire de l'analyse psychologique des personnages au travers de leurs actions. C'est aussi fin que spectaculaire.
Un excellent écrit du genre.
Three Courageous Words (Mission: Six Book 1798)
Three Courageous Words (Mission: Six Book 1798)
I've read books by Elle in the past and is the reason I purchased this series. I'm beginning to wonder if she even wrote these books.

Spelling and grammar errors abound.

Buck comes across a woman he went to medical school with but had to drop out and leave her due to a troubled past that had caught up with him. If course he didn't say anything to her when he left. Due to reason he had to leave, not saying something to her didn't make sense. His past could have easily still gone after her.

While on a mission in Africa (I think these SEALs are stationed in AFrica!), his team is looking for a warlord when a group of women begin protesting. Buck doesn't like what's happening and dons local garb and goes out to the street. Recognizes the lead woman and grabs her. Of course all hell breaks and the SEALs have to make a run for it.

When the team leaves to go back to base, Buck stays behind to "protect" Angela. Of course she fights him every step of the way. They are looking for where the war lord is located so he can send coordinates to his team. Angela wasn't the greatest heroine. She's a doctor with Doctors Without Borders and takes too many risks. Buck should have thrown her over his shoulder and had them go back with his team.

This book goes through their adventures. A sticking point for me (causing me not to feel any chemistry between them) is: when she first sees him she calls him Graham. Makes sense, it's how she always knew him. The rest of the book, she calls him Buck. That should NOT have been natural for her. It would have helped show their old chemistry if she'd refer to him as Graham.

This book ended very similar to the last two. The heroine gets kidnapped and the team has to go get her.

I just didn't feel it with this book. These SEALs seem to fall apart after they have sex with a woman. SEALs are trained much better than that. Not realistic.
Englishman in Blackpool, Englishwoman Short Story
Englishman in Blackpool, Englishwoman Short Story
Jenny O’Brien has a certain writing style that means you can’t help but be sucked into the character’s lives straight away and I love that about her writing. My heart strings get tugged in all kinds of ways, and although this was only a short story, you definitely get a feel for the character and the backstory.

If you looking for a simple, heart lifting, sweet romance, then this is a great read. I won’t give any of the plot away as it’s quite short but definitely worth it – you won’t be disappointed.
Clifford's School Story Box
Clifford's School Story Box
These stories are very cute, a little bit more informative than they are just storytelling as opposed to the Bedtime box. The Clifford's bedtime story box also contains 'Clifford goes to dog school' so if you buy both sets you'll have a double of that one. The price is unbeatable to buy these in sets though, highly recommended.
Little Miss Whoops (Mr. Men and Little Miss Book 33)
Little Miss Whoops (Mr. Men and Little Miss Book 33)
Did you know that Little Miss Whoops is the sister of Mr. Bump? In this book we spend the first few pages reading about Little Miss Whoops' accidents but then she takes a train trip to visit Mr. Bump. Sadly whilst the train was in a station, Little Miss Whoops fell off the train, somehow tripped into the back of a truck, then ended up on a boat to another country! Of course she then had to find her way back! By the time she arrived at Mr. Bump's there wasn't much time before she had to go home.

I have to admit that this is not one of our favorite Little Miss books as there is just not much detail to the story. A little insipid!
Age of Heroes
Age of Heroes
Wasn't expecting too much from this film, but I was pleasantly surprised by watching.
Where to start? A reasonable cast supporting the excellent Sean Bean, who does a re-run of 'Sharp' but with a better accent, and Danny Dyer doing his Cockney barrow-boy routine, supported by mostly unknown actors. Everyone turns in a plausible performance though you get the impression some of the cast are 'under-used' at times.
The story: starts well with Dyer in France (in 1940) for an extended background exposition segment that ends up with Dyer ending up in 'Jankers'on a false charge of cowardice and a genuine charge of insubordination. We get to see that he cares for his men, is a calculating soldier, and a brave chap. From Gaol he get's recruited into the commandos and after a short training 'montage' sequence - in which we meet the rest of the team and learn about the mission - the team is sent to Norway to sabotage/steal Nazi Radar technology.
[Spoiler warning]
Of course things go wrong right from the start, with the predictable 'misdrop' and the complications attendant with that, and an (unexpected) unit of SS troops who hunt for our heroes.
The writing is competant, if uninspiring, and the story motors along happily, with interruptions for a shoot out here and there, but it falls down a bit at the end. The film peaks with the commoando attack on the Nazi RDF facility, but the subsequent 'escape' is rather 'rushed' and a bit 'glossed over', with a 'deus ex-machina' when things look a bit dicey.
Certain characters are devloped, but don't really get to go anywhere as the story concentrates on the action rather than the subplots.
The action sequences are handled well, and you can see the 'Band of Brothers' influence on some of them. The SS are suitably villainous, but don't slip into cartoon villainy (too much).
The 'pacing' of the story and plot are handled well, but things do tend to get 'speeded up' to the detriment of the characters, but maybe that's not too mcuh of an issue.
There are opportuities that are not really explored, but that's not a huge problem.
As a film it's an entertaining 'romp' through a commando raid, but could have been done better. It compares well with war films of the 40s and 50s, like 'Ill Met by Moonlight', which shows how it could have been done.
Meghan and Harry: A Revolutionary Romance
Meghan and Harry: A Revolutionary Romance
Really Very Good! I love British programs & have for decades however usually not this sort. First, the narrator was perfect. I have loved Penelope Wilton since long before Downton Abbey. I sort of tuned the romance out after giving Harry, one of my 3 favorite royals (Diana & Fergie), "kudos for being Harry". For the time allotted it was balanced and just plain refreshing. I don't think it was simply fluff as these kind of programs so often are. The "negatives" were discussed but not dwelled on which was good. I loved seeing what kinds of things they hold dear and did not realize just how involved they both are. They seem truly connected and I wish them well. I highly recommend, especially if you avoid this kind of program. I think it is a pleasant surprise.
Harry Potter 02 e la camera dei segreti
Harry Potter 02 e la camera dei segreti
La storia della saga di Harry Potter è bellissima per chi ama come scrive J.K.Rowling.
L'ho letta quasi vent'anni fa con la vecchia edizione e vecchia traduzione di tutta la saga.
Le nuove illustrazioni delle copertine di Brian Selzenik sono di una bellezza unica diverse dalle prime.
Consiglio la lettura a tutti a chi ama la letteratura e in particolar modo il genere fantasy che non ha età.
I tempi di Amazon sono stati eccellenti, l'unica cura del venditore doveva essere quella di fare un imballaggio più resistente affinchè la sovracopertina non si piegasse.
Era molto impolverato ho avuto la cura di pulire il libro esternamente.
Per il resto era perfetto.

Kalyss 12" Short Straight Men's Blonde Color Wig Heat Resistant Synthetic Hair Wig (blonde)
Honestly, I took a gamble on this wig. I wasn't sure it would fit the look I was going for, but I had limited time to get the right 'do for a Halloween party. And, just to be clear, this costume I had planned relied almost entirely on the wig. Luckily, this wig was damn near perfect and for quite a bargain! The one fault would be that I had to adjust every so often because it's probably meant for a man with short hair (I'm a woman with long hair), and my hair kept peeking through now and again. But, still, not too bad if you're using this for a short-term endeavor.

For anyone wondering: I was going as Sally Jessy Raphael. Yes, her. And, yes, this wig. I was able to run my fingers through the wig and mess it up a little to get that poofy 80s flair that Ms. Raphael was known for — I'm taking CLASSIC Sally Jessy, here.

Long story short: if you need a wig to look like Sally Jessy Raphael, this one's a great choice.
Article 23 (Star Voyager Series Book 2)
Article 23 (Star Voyager Series Book 2)
This is basically a "Caine Mutinty" type theme, although I do not want to go more into it for fear of introducing spoilers. This is the second novel in the "Star Voyager" series, and is a very enjoyable read. I agree with other reviewers that this novel is written at the "young adult" level, and in fact this novel is reminiscent of some of Robert Heinlein's so-called "juvenile" science fiction stories. This is not meant in a pejorative sense, as I happen to think that Heinlein's "juvenile" novels were some of his best work. In any case, this second novel in the Star Voyager series is an enjoyable and entertaining read. In fact, it left me wishing for more, and it appears that this second novel is all we are going to get of this series, which I think is a shame. There were many interesting but undeveloped themes for future novels here, including the development of faster-than-light travel, contact with aliens, and even political issues as between Earth and her colonies. Mr. Forstchen is a busy and prolific writer and it appears that this series has been left behind. A shame, because it has lots of potential. RJB.
Best of Harry Harrison: 29
Best of Harry Harrison: 29
Harry Harrison's _The Best of Harry Harrison_ (1976) is a collection of twenty tales by Harrison published between 1962 and 1974, with a good introduction by Barry Malzberg. The publication dates are about right; his journeyman work from the fifties has been excluded. And many of the selections do indeed strike me as some of Harrison's better pieces from the sixties and early seventies. In this sense, the stories are the "best" of Harry Harrison.

But are the stories great? I must reluctantly answer, "no". They are certainly well-crafted. They are frequently entertaining. They are often provocative and pointed. They are good stories. But (with three exceptions), they are not terribly profound or complex. When you compare Harrison's best short stories with the better tales of writers like Theodore Stugeon, Ray Bradbury, Alfred Bester, Damon Knight, Brian W. Aldiss, William Tenn, Ursula K. leGuin, Robert Sheckley, and Algis Budrys, his tales look rather thin.

The stories are: "The Streets of Ashkelon" (_New Worlds_, 1962), "Captain Honario Harpplayer, R.N." (_Fantasy and Science Fiction, 1963), "Rescue Operation" (_Analog_, 1967), "At Last, the True Story of Frankenstein" (_F&SF_, 1963), "I Always do What Teddy Says" (_Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine_, 1965), "Portrait of the Artist" (_F&SF_, 1964), "Not Me, Not Amos Cabot!" (_New Worlds_, 1965) "Mute Milton" (_Amazing, 1966), "A Criminal Act" (_Analog_, 1967), "Waiting Place" (_Galaxy_, 1968), "If" (aka, "Praisworthy Saur," _If_, 1968), "I Have My Vigil," (_F&SF_, 1968), "From Fanaticism, or Reward" (_Analog_, 1969), "By the Falls" (_If_, 1970), "The Ever-Branching Tree" (_Science Against Man_, 1970), "Brave Newer World" (_Four Futures_, 1971), "Roommates" (New Book Publication, 1971), "The Mothballed Spaceship," (_Astounding Memorial Anthology_, 1973), "An Honest Day's Work" (_New Writings in Science Fiction_, 1973), and "Space Rats of the C.C.C." (_Final Stage_, 1974).* Harrison writes that the book version of "I Always Do What Teddy Says" differs in its ending from the original EQMM version.

"The Streets of Ashkelon," "The Mothballed Spaceship," and "Space Rats of C.C.C." are all space operas. And nobody writes space opera better than Harry Harrison. "The Streets of Ashkelon" was written as a taboo-breaker in the sixties ; though truth to tell, it seems pretty tame by today's standards. It's the one about the missionary on the alien planet and the aliens who took his message a bit too literally. "The Mothballed Spaceship" was written for a memorial anthology in honor of John W. Campbell, Jr . It is a Jason dinAlt story. Jason and the Pyrrans must match wits with a killer derelict battleship in order to salvage it within a deadline. It is the best of the space operas in the collection. "The Space Rats of C.C.C." is a piece of slangy, disreputable space opera spoofery of the sort that we don't hardly see no more: "Here's to your health and may your tubeliners never fail you when the _kpnnz_ hordes are on your tail" (289). The writing reminds me of letters columns that ran for a while in _Startling_ and _Thrilling Wonder_ that were answered by "Sergeant Saturn". I would not dream of revealing what the C.C.C. stands for.

"Portrait of the Artist," "Mute Milton," and "A Criminal Act" are all social problem stories. The first is the one about the comic book artist displaced by an impersonal computer that can do the job faster and better. "Mute Milton" is about the black man who comes up with the working model of a fabulous invention made out of a cigar box-- only to have it destroyed by a hick southern sheriff. For readers who believe that Harrison's portrait of the lawmen is stereotypical, I can only say that as late as the seventies I had run-ins with just these types of characters in Alabama. The hapless victims of "A Criminal Act" are guilty of "the act of criminal birth". Harrison writes that these laws in particular might not be passed. But inevitably, some set of irrational laws will be.

"From Fanaticism, or For Reward" has the trappings of space opera, but it is fundamentally a much more serious piece. A human hired killer is tracked down by a Follower-- and then taken down a peg or three. It reminds me of some other political tales by Harrison like "The K-Factor" (_Analog_, 1960) and "You Men of Violence" (_Galaxy_, 1967).

"Captain Honario Harpplayer, R.N." is a spoof of Horatio Hornblower and is the funniest tale in the book. It's not really a classic, but by damne, sir, I liked it, and I wish that there were one or two others like it as well.

"Rescue Operation" is really the same plot as "Honario Harpplayer"-- but moved up into modern times and given less of a comic spin. It is set in Yugoslavia, a country that harrison knew well. Perhaps I should mention at this point that Harrison, like Mack reynolds, was a global traveler. His stories set in foreign countries were usually authentic.

"By the Falls" is a story that Harrison says was based on a vision (though not a religious one). It is a semi-surrealistic story that is oddly powerful and is one of Harrison's very best tales. it was a Nebula nominee.

"Roommates" was a novelette written in conjunction with Harrison's overpopulation novel, _Make Room! Make Room!_ (1966). It is another excellent tale in its own right, not simply a "rough draft" for a good novel.

"Roommates" is set in a dystopia. "Brave newer World" is set in a utopia-- or, to be more precise, what Ursula K. leGuin would call an "ambivalent utopia". It is a society where medical malpractice has run amok. It is the third great tale in the anthology.

"At Last, the True Story of Frankenstein," "I Always Do What Teddy Says," "Waiting Place," and "I Have My Vigil" are horror stories of various kinds, all pretty minor.

IRWIN VISE-GRIP Pliers, Iron Worker's, 9-Inch (2078909)
I bought this because of the price, and then my buddy bought a different Vise-Grip iron worker plier, 1990613, on Amazon and it is much better for a little more dollars. I have large hands but this unit is just too bulky with thick handles to lay comfortably in the hand. Plus, the hook just doesn't hook well enough in the hand to allow a relaxed carry of the plier. The 1990613 is a real pleasure to use in comparison, get it, I wish I had.

I purchased this as a last minute decoration for my husband’s birthday, and almost didn’t put it up because I was pressed for time and had never attempted a balloon garland before. I’m so glad I tried it because - it was so easy to use! From start to finish it took just under one hour (with three small kids around - I’m sure next them it would be a lot faster). The package comes with two clamps, a pole that makes the arch and plastic rings for the balloons. I started out by adding the clamps to my table, and then putting the pole on without balloons, just to make sure it would fit. Tip - make sure the clamps aren’t too close to the wall, that way you have room for the balloons to go around the front and back. Then I started filling balloons (do yourself a favor and get a small machine that fills air in them - such a timer saver!). I used approximately 80 normal medium size balloons, which equated to about 20 rings - I even had plenty left over. The balloons fit best when I blew them up to a round shape, but not too full. To fill out the arch, you add four balloons on to each ring and then add the ring filled with balloons to the pole. I kept the pole set up and took out one end of the pole each time I added balloons and then placed it back in the clamp. (I included one picture that shows the set up with the first ring of balloons). Doing it this way allowed me to get an idea of how I liked the color spacing and also an idea of how many balloons/rings I needed. Each time I added a ring of balloons, I’d push the ring all the way to the opposite side to build the arch. The whole process was super easy and seemed to go by fast. My family loved it, and I know it’ll be a tradition we start doing for all future birthdays and parties. Taking down the arch was very fast and easy, and it folds up small for storage. I highly recommend!

If this was helpful feel free to give a thumbs up.
The Twilight Saga: New Moon
The Twilight Saga: New Moon
I am not a movie watcher nor do I like Vampire movies so this was a total surprise to me. I kept seeing advertisements, pictures, toys and all sorts of stuff for this movie but could never understand the draw to it, another Vampire movie big deal..So I asked my 22 year old son about it. He said it was a romance movie and not much on the blood and gore, that picked my curiosity. Lucky for me, a few days later they had Twilight, New Moon and Twilight eclipse on cable to advertise Breaking Dawn 2 to DVD. So I turned it on expecting to turn the channel with in a half hour, boy was I wrong!!! I sat through the whole movie with my heart pounding, no vampire here.LOL... I found it to be a very addicting love story between a girl and her family, vampire and his family, werewolf and his family and how they all came together . It felt a bit like Cinderella but she actually had two prince charming, one a vampire and the other a werewolf.. Both with a few wicked step sisters and brothers thrown in, to make it interesting... I really liked this movie and all the the rest of the twilight movies... Matter of fact after seeing New Moon and eclipse I ended up buying all five of the Twilight Movies....Beware! if you watch one they might get their bite on you and you might end up buying all five movie to get your fill, of Twilight!!!!!

I was really enjoying SEE and The Morning Show. Then I got to episode 3. It tells you to continue watching you have to sign in from an Apple device. I don't own any Apple devices so now I excluded that's not right. It might surprise those at Apple but you are not the be all end all of technology, or all the other brands out in the market would not exist. Not everyone can afford or likes your products. If you are truly trying to compete with Netflix's. Your content should be available to everyone on all platforms, NOT just to those who have Apple devices. UPDATE I called Apple to see why I couldn't sign up for Apple TV Plus. They told me that it's because I don't have their Apple TV box. I'm not going to buy a $200 box just to watch a few TV shows. I will stick with Netflix. Netflix doesn't make you buy expensive equipment to watch their shows.

This was the perfect weight and color cardstock for my mini albums, and the price was excellent. No bends, dings, or odd cut sizes as sometimes happens (I often have to trim paper that is factory cut to 1/16 or 1/32 over what the size should be); the paper came in excellent condition. Also, their customer service reached out to me to make sure I got my product and was satisfied. Nice to know that they’re interested in maintaining customers, even through their Amazon seller’s page.

Bessey PC34-2 3/4" Pipe Clamp with 2 3/8" Throat Depth, Red
After discovering that Pony clamps are no more, I had to get something. This clamp is the same height as the Pony clamps I already own. The price was good.

Honestly, they are OK. The clamping feet are larger and they include clamping pads, which is awesome. The overall quality though? Meh. After a dozen uses the roll pins holding the clamp foot to the screw are no longer holding. I can drive a pin in to fix this as they give out, but...really?
They aren't GREAT. They are mediocre. Sadly, they are the best clamp of this type that I have been able to find that are the same height as the Pony clamps I already have.
