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.
Mustard Seed Faith: Mountain-Moving Ideas to Change Your Life by Changing the Lives of Others
Mustard Seed Faith: Mountain-Moving Ideas to Change Your Life by Changing the Lives of Others
This book is thoughtful and evocative . As a friend of the author , I would love to give it 5 stars but I have to apply the iceberg principle which says that 90% is never seen . Eric's vision of the world we need to improve is flawed only in so far as thinking that so many people don't feel the same way he does . Perhaps it is my naivete that leads me to believe that most people are not ships of war but rather ships without rudders . To that extent , Eric offers beautiful and constructive ideas on how to help people find their rudder by reflecting the love of Christ in our own behavior . I hope that most people are not motivated by self aggrandizement but rather , they are fearful of the pain of rejection . We can all share Eric's hope but not if we think so many people are hopeless . Jesus taught us to leave the 99 to search for the one . I hope that everyone reading this book feels moved to touch at least one life and plant a mustard seed of hope in the life of another soul for hope is the seed from which faith grows .
The 4 Lenses of Innovation: A Power Tool for Creative Thinking
The 4 Lenses of Innovation: A Power Tool for Creative Thinking
If you do not listen to your customers, failure is certain. But if you limit yourself to what they tell you, failure will be devastating. Henry Ford understood this more than 100 years ago: people wanted faster horses, not revolutionary and innovative transport systems.

In this book, the reader is engaged from the first chapter. Consistent with what has been Gibson’s mantra for many years, the book seeks to reaffirm his message: innovation, as well as quality, customer service, etc., must be "embedded" in all organizations, because companies without innovative culture are left behind sooner rather than later.

In ancient times, people believed that the creativity and ability to innovate was a divine inspiration granted to few. Hence, poets, philosophers and artists looked toward the "Muses", goddesses of inspiration.

Archimedes’s "Eureka" however, was not the result of divine inspiration that occurred while he was in the now famous bathtub. He was a physicist, mathematician, engineer, astronomer and inventor. When the King asked him to confirm whether the goldsmith had stolen part of the gold he was given for the new crown, Archimedes could not find a way to measure the volume of such irregular body. While soaking in the tub, he saw the water level rising and concluded that the displaced volume was equal to the volume of the submerged body: "Eureka". With the volume and weight of the crown, he found that its density was less than that of gold, and therefore the goldsmith was actually a thief.
Rowan describes how everything became clearer with the European Renaissance. With the birth of humanism, mankind began to understand that scientific or artistic creation depended exclusively on the education and skills of each person.

As the individual grew in terms of self-esteem and self-confidence, an explosion of artistic and scientific developments happened that substantially improved the quality of life of mankind. Human beings, rather than gods, became the center of the universe. The mind was set free and the spark of creativity was lit. Science and technological advances ceased to be a violation of the divine order. You could challenge the orthodoxy.

Rowan analyzes the way Petrarch, "The Father of Humanism and the Renaissance" recognized the new trends of the time: obscurantism and darkness during the Middle Ages were gradually left behind and the new challenges to be faced would later bring along more prosperous years.

The story of how Gutenberg integrated different skills and knowledge to create the printing press is fascinating. Just like Steve Jobs, with his privileged view, managed to integrate various technologies to develop the iPod and other "gadgets" that made him famous. Both did leverage in resources already available.

H. Ford invented an unclaimed and unneeded machine. Leonardo da Vinci, with his brilliant mind and insatiable curiosity, designed the parachute, submarine, helicopter and many other machines and appliances that nobody needed at the time, but were crucial to improving the quality of life of humankind.

Thanks to this four lenses, we will be able to unravel the desired tomorrow from our day to day lives.
The Kurdish Bike: A Book Club Favorite
The Kurdish Bike: A Book Club Favorite
The Kurdish Bike works on many levels. Billed as a novel, it has the direct feeling and intensity of a memoir- which the afterword reveals it in some part is. This is a deeply personal story of connections between people from very different cultures, their deep affection and profound differences. In particular, the ways in which women in both American and Kurdish societies deal with the burdens placed on them by their societies are illustrated with subtlety and insight.

Teresa, the narrator, is a fifty-something American teacher, recently divorced and nearly financially wiped out by her ex-husband. With her only child away at college, she seeks change by taking a position teaching in a for profit school in Kurdistan. This is a grim and rigid institution she comes to refer to as “The Fortress”. The Fortress is populated by a ragtag collection of expats and Middle Easterners who form minor narratives in themselves, but the main thrust of the story is driven by Teresa’s desire for freedom. The “Kurdish Bike” in the title is her means of escape from the confines of the Fortress, of making connections with the Kurdish people in the local village. In the process she discovers much about their devastating recent history, and the millenniums of struggle that have saturated this ancient countryside. Always, the human relationships are at the forefront, conveyed in clear and polished prose, with humor and warmth.

To simply list the issues Teresa encounters in Kurdistan- abandoned women, female genital mutilation, honor killings, the total dominance of women’s lives and decisions by the men in their family, and potential jihadist recruits- would make The Kurdish Bike sound like a grim jeremiad. It is anything but. We are instead led through an engaging and sometimes dramatic story to see the world though new- and less judgmental- eyes. Teresa is continually confronted not just with the challenges women face in Kurdish society, but with the mirroring challenges she faces in her own. The result is a more complex, human, and far more powerful understanding- one that helps to erase the picture of the Kurds as an exotic “other” and lets us see through to our common humanity. And perhaps enables us to see our western culture as sometimes not so advanced as we would like to think.

I am rarely moved to write reviews, and don’t do a lot of book recommending, but I’m passing copies of The Kurdish Bike out to friends and find myself talking and thinking about it a lot. It’s one of the most memorable books I have read in a long, long time. More than a good read, it’s a book you feel good about having read.
University Of Michigan Vault Wolverine Winter Warm Slouchy Beanie
University Of Michigan Vault Wolverine Winter Warm Slouchy Beanie
The item I received looked nothing like what I ordered. It said it was a warm knit beanie, but it is made of t shirt material. The stitching is poor quality and there is a peice of fabric sticking out of one seam. The mascot in the picture is large and nearly covers the whole beanie, but what I received had a very small mascot on it that looks ridiculous. It is very poor quality and not as pictured. Very unsatisfied!!!
The Bootleg Series, Vol. 9: The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964
The Bootleg Series, Vol. 9: The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964
What really peaked my interest, causing me to jump into this seemingly endless bootlegged series was the song "I'll Keep It With Mine," which Britta Phillips did with intense exquisite passion and grace, on their release 13 Most Beautiful: Songs For Andy Warhol's Screen Tests, and is now doing live during Dean Wareham's Galaxie 500 tour. With this being the first time many of these songs have surfaced, I sat right down and queued up a whole host of interesting numbers, including a very introspective version of "Mama, You've Been On My Mind," and "Mr. Tambourine Man," where his imagery and abstractness seem all the more pointed.

Of course these aren't the most well recorded tracks, even with the remarkable cleansing process they were put through before being released. Never the less, one gets an insightful vision of what was circulating in the head of Bob Dylan, a mere ten or so weeks following the release of his very first album. Many of the tracks are very lo-fi in their nature, often Dylan opts for the piano rather than his guitar, and you can almost visualize him considering and changing these songs as they're coming out of his mouth. A number of the tracks, especially his talking blues forays sound sedated, mere shadows of what they would become. A real pleasure, and idea that I've always supported, was how much Bruce Springsteen's early demo sessions sound remarkably like Dylan in their structure, phrasing and development.

Dylan wasn't trying to prove anything here, these are just his initial takes on a large grouping of material. To be honest I'm surprised that he allowed a tape machine to be running, as these tracks were already cataloged in his head, this was just Bob, perhaps for the first time, allowing these songs to fully see the light of day, before he reworked them. It's important to maintain a sense of perspective here, an open mind, and even a sense of humor, because your gonna' hear some looser material back to back which songs that would become timeless classics.

As with all of this material, it's rather easy to dismiss, holding no lasting value, or repeated play interest. It's all sort of like standing on a wooden crate, rubbing the dirt from a smudged window pane, looking in and discovering that there's really not much to be seen, other than a young man, endlessly typing away, while adding the music to the words in his head. Of course I'm pleased to have had the look-see, but what is there to honestly say, just the dullness of an artist at work ... I'll take the finished product any day of the week.

Aloe Cadabra Flavored Personal Lube for Oral Sex, Best Organic Edible Lubricant for Men, Women and Couples, Pina Colada, 2.5 Ounce
This stuff is hard to talk about but I want to help others out there with issues like mine. I'm a BRCA+ survivor of estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer. Chemotherapy at age 40 put me in peri-menopause, and then having both my ovaries removed at 42 finished the job. Because of my cancer history, I can't take hormone replacement therapy. Before the cancer, I already had problems with pain during intercourse (called "vulvitis" or "vulvodynia" by doctors, treated with a steroid cream with marginal success).

So the deck was stacked against me (and my poor husband) when it came to having comfortable sex. I've used various other lubricants, but Aloe Cadabra (natural/original aloe formulation) is the first one that really WORKS, not just to make sex more comfortable but to make my lady parts feel better every day. I apply a dab of it every day after showering. The aloe gives it a pleasing (but subtle) cool sensation going in. At my first gynecologist visit after I started using it, my doc was kind of shocked. She was like, "whoa, your vulva looks great!" Need I say more? I'd like to give it a star rating of "infinity."
Core Java Volume I--Fundamentals (11th Edition) (Core Series)
Core Java Volume I--Fundamentals (11th Edition) (Core Series)
The book is overall very good in that the writing is concise, informative, and even largely fun to read for a programming language book. But this series is very strangely organized, and you should be aware of this.

This is Core Java, Volume I: Fundamentals, with a sister book named Core Java, Volume II: Advanced Features. But those title are very misleading. Many pages in the Fundamentals volume properly belong in the Advanced Features volume, and vice versa. For example, in the Fundamentals book the author includes many pages covering such topics as Reflection, Proxies & the Class Loader, and so forth. These are advanced topics if you ask me, and it would seem the author himself would agree! In not just one but in many places he says, "Application programmers can safely skip this section". I agree, because these sections have no place in book about fundamentals. But meanwhile very important topics which I would consider to be Java fundamentals are not covered in the Fundamentals volume, but in the Advanced Topics. Basic File I/O is in the Advanced Topics book, Reflection is in the Fundamentals book. That's exactly backwards!

Both Basic File I/O and Networking are in the Advanced Topics book. At the end of the Fundamentals book, you won't be able write useful programs because the very basic essentials of how to get data into them will have never been presented to you. You might be able to create some very basic GUI applications from the Fundamentals book, but what they might be doing besides looking pretty I don't know. Again, refer to the Advanced Topics book to read/write files to connect to anything on a network, etc. and generally having anything interesting to operate upon.

These books in tandem might do you well, but know that going in. The Fundamentals book by itself is really not sufficient to stand alone usefully.

Sun Bum Lip Balm, SPF 30, 0.15 oz. Stick, 1 Count, Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection, Hypoallergenic, Paraben Free, Gluten Free, Vegan
I was looking for an spf protection for my lips. I wanted something that was moisturizing and had good clean ingredients. The ingredients, value and reviews seemed to make this the best choice, unfortunately the flavors are way too strong and too sweet. It is very strong and over powering making it very unpleasant to use. They are very moisturizing, I want the spf protection, not to mention I just spent my money on them so I am trying to use them but it is unpleasant. I bought the 3 pack so I'm disappointed with this purchase. All 3 flavors are super sweet and over powering. I've had lip balms with flavors but they were very light and not offensive. If you don't care for flavored lip balms you probably won't like this.

It is a kind of high efficiency and convenient product.
First, the power inverter is able to achieve high conversion efficiency in application. If you do not consider conversion rate, then a lot of energy will be lost at the time of conversion.
Second, the inverter has more assurance to offer a safety performance. This is an important issue in people's lives. The new technology developed full scale protection functions for the power inverter, including short circuit, overload and over-temperature protection.
Third, the power inverter has very good physical properties. Its surface has a hard antioxidant capacity, and also has a very strong ability to fight the effects of friction and load bearing capacity.
I Want to Take You Higher: The Life and Times of Sly & the Family Stone
I Want to Take You Higher: The Life and Times of Sly & the Family Stone
Given the impact Sly Stone had on pop music in the 1960s and after, it's amazing more books haven't been written on the life and times of America's first master of funk. Jeff Kaliss takes a comprehensive look at the man - and the group - that gave us 'Stand,' 'Hot Fun in the Summertime,' 'Everyday People,' 'Thank You (Falettineme Be Mice Elf Agin' and other pop classics. Kaliss has done a marvelous job of researching his subject and I WANT TO TAKE YOU HIGHER is a must-read for all Sly Stone/Sixties rock music fans.

No Sixties group could touch Sly and the Family Stone for catchy, infectious songs that jumped off the vinyl and got their listeners up and shaking their tailfeathers. Yet Sly's songs weren't just empty-headed dance tunes for, wrapped up in those funky beats, were sincere, heartfelt calls for brotherhood and understanding. Tragically, the joy and magic and fun generated by the Family Stone's creation and initial success fell victim to drugs. Original group members left and Sly launched into a roller-coaster, drug-fueled ride that turned this tremendous talent into a reclusive Howard Hughes clone.

I WANT TO TAKE YOU HIGHER is a fairly slim volume - only 210 pages long - but Kaliss' in-depth research, which included interviews with original group members and even the man himself(!) produced an insightful, informative tale. While Kaliss doesn't shy away from warts-and-all exposure, his tone is even-handed and sympathetic.

The book's emphasis is on Sly and Company. After all, its sub-title is 'The Life and Times of Sly and the Family Stone.' So, while Kaliss discusses the group's musical output, he doesn't devote a great deal of space to that. Personally I would have liked a bit more on the music. And I would have loved it if Kaliss had dropped his laidback sensibilities and thrown in a "This song is Bitchin!!!!!" comment or two when discussing the songs!

Reading I WANT TO TAKE YOU HIGHER leaves one with mixed emotions. The music of Sly and the Family Stone touched so many people then and now, it's sad to read of the behind-the-scene turmoil and the toll drugs took on the man and his friends. They certainly took us higher for a time and, for that, we can be grateful. And grateful to for Jeff Kaliss' wonderful book. Highly recommended.

I Had to be quite picky with what pops to get with this wave but I knew this would have to be one of them has great detail and stands around 4.5inches (noticeably) taller than normal size. Box came in mint enough condition but the back bit of his sword is loose and ready to come off but its hanging on. I definitely recommend this pop you won't be disappointed with this and looks even better in person.
cherrboll Insulated Pizza Delivery Bag, 20 by 20 by 14 -Inch, Commercial Grade Food Delivery Bag, Moisture Free
cherrboll Insulated Pizza Delivery Bag, 20 by 20 by 14 -Inch, Commercial Grade Food Delivery Bag, Moisture Free
The size of this bag is clearly not the 20 x 20 x 14 inches listed. I measure the outside to be 19 x 19 x 12.5 inches, but the inside is of course even smaller. I can just barely squeeze 18x18 inch boxes into this thing.

Other than that though, it seems to be sturdy enough. The insulation isn't as good as on the bags Dominoes and Pizza Hut use, but it should serve the purpose if delivery is done in 30 minutes or less after the food leaves the heat source and assuming it will be eaten soon after arrival. Plus, you'd be putting so much food into this the food will help keep other boxes of food warm longer. I've not had any issues with the zipper so far like some other reviewers have mentioned, though depending on how frequently you use this bag I suppose it would wear out fast.

If the zipper wears out, I plan to put some simple Styrofoam into an empty pizza box and use that as a top layer to cover whatever is in the bag.

Overall the bag seems to be okay quality for the cost. The measurements being off is a big mistake though, hence the loss of a star.

Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, Three Cheese, 7.25 oz
Did you really think you were getting 3 boxes for a dollar? I hope everyone also knows by now NOT to follow the instructions. Margarine or butter works first, then just a splash of milk, not too much, the cheese powder, mix really good. A fair warning though, despite downing 5 cups of coffee and 2 energy drinks, this stuff will put you to sleep within five minutes.
One Piece, Vol. 8: I Won't Die
One Piece, Vol. 8: I Won't Die
The eighth volume of the One Piece manga is mostly taken up with the conclusion of the fight between Don Krieg and Luffy, and the edition of a new crew member for the Luffy's pirate crew. Once this is over the Arlong Park story arc begins with Usopp and Zolo chasing after Nami only to find a much more dangerous foe.

This is another very good volume of One Piece with the fight between Luffy and Don Krieg being one of the best that the series has produced so far. The scenes following the battle with the crew leaving the restaurant Baratie are also quite emotional as well. Once this arc is finished we go straight to the Arlong Park arc and while I am not really a fan of this part of the story there are some nice battles to come in the following volumes and this volume does set the storyline up nicely. Overall this is a very good volume that was very enjoyable throughout.

Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Arctic Event (A Covert-One novel Book 7)
Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Arctic Event (A Covert-One novel Book 7)
It is a great adventure book written in a classic style where good guys are good, bad guys are bad and the main villain is a former Soviet Union. All protagonists are colorful but not overcomplicated. The women could be a cold blooded killers and charming at the same time. The men are strong, heroic, athletic but also sensitive. The landscapes are cold and scary. The heroes come out miraculously unscathed from all life threatening situations. And good will always prevail. In terms of believability this book is closer to James Bond or Charlie Angels movies than to T. Clancy books. If you look for plot originality or psychological depths look somewhere else.
So what makes it special and such fun to read? It is all about how it is written. It is Ludlum (and J. H. Cobb) at his best when plot moves smoothly, pacing is perfect and you hardly can take your eyes off the pages. After recently reading several aspiring new authors this book was like a breath of fresh air to me. It reminded me how good books should be written.
The Osterman Weekend (Two-Disc)
The Osterman Weekend (Two-Disc)
Osterman Weekend was Sam Peckinpah's final film, and while it isn't by a long shot his best film, if you are a fan of the director you might as well pick this up for historical reference. It's not truly awful, and has some allusions about the use of the media to achieve corrupt ends, but those expecting much rhyme or reason to the proceedings will be disappointed. The real "story" of this Blu-ray release is the transfer; for those who are unfamiliar with the term "Digital Noise Reduction," or have heard of it but don't really "see" what it means in practice, here you go. You've seen how celebrity and fashion magazines wipe clean all blemishes from faces to make people look like wax figures, and in this film the flesh of the actors is "smoothed" over to similar effect, probably because the film element used had considerable grain. It is so obvious you have to laugh at how fake it looks. In dark scenes especially flesh tones seem to be well off "normal" as well. Edge enhancement is also sometimes obvious, like someone taking a pair of scissors, cutting out something from one picture and pasting it onto another picture. I suppose if you were a film school instructor who needed an example of how not to do digital restoration, this Blu-ray would be "perfect" to demonstrate that. I suppose Anchor Bay could have done what Shout Factory did with their Blu-ray of The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With The Sea, doing nothing to reduce the pretty horrible amount of grain in dark scenes, making them practically unwatchable, but there had to be a some "middle ground" to fix this--or simply finding a decent print to work from.

However, given all of that I suppose that if you really feel you need this film to round out your video collection--and it is Peckinpah after all--and you don't have the now out-of-print special edition DVD which wasn't digitally "enhanced" and actually looks a little better, you don't have a lot of choices. The film isn't very good regardless of how the transfer looks anyways, and only "recommended" for completists.

Dragon Ball (sens français) - Tome 23: Recoom et Guldo (Dragon Ball (sens français) (23)) (French Edition)
Le Shōnen manga par excellence, précurseur du genre, rempli d'humour(assez grivoise), beaucoup imité, jamais égalé !!

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

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

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

Bonne lecture à tous

This series is really hard to read. The main character is totally unlikeable. Everytime something positive is mentioned involving Morgan Chase, within a page or two she does something that sets her back 3 paces in this readers eyes. The wrong people are together...Alex & Travis should end up together, would make for better reading.

The Mothers of Lovely Lane (The Lovely Lane Series Book 3)
An absolutely brilliant read. One if the best fictional books I have read in a long time. I was lucky that I read the books one after another, indeed I read all three while on holiday in September (2017).This is the third book in the Lovely Lane Series, the others being The Nurses of Lovely Lane and The Children of Lovely Lane. All three are such wonderful reads and will bring a tear to the eyes if anyone who reads them. Each book tells the story of several people and their stories continue thoughout the books. Things don't always have a happy ever after end and indeed the storys are open to continue. How Nadine Dorries manages to write such brilliant books and also do her duty as an MP I wil never know, but long may she continue to write such great books.

Cleaning our hands is the single most important way to prevent infections. This delightful book teaches this habit in a lively, rhyming, entertaining way. The illustrations are inventive and children will relate to the actions which they participate in, in their daily lives. The added bonus of the English and Spanish text makes it a good value. I plan to use it during Infection Control Week this October and am having a lot of fun reading the book too. I hope many people will consider this book for the children in their lives.

I doubt this is the fault of the manufacturer in India, but the the company in Houston who imports this stuff, or the company in California who distributes this stuff or Amazon needs to know : the contents leached through the protective aluminum seal on the opening of the jar and there was a LOT of scum between the foil and the underside of the screw on top. As if that weren't enough, the sticker states manufactured on 7-28-2014 (!), expires on 7-27-2016 (!) yet there is another sticker stating the contents are best before 6-10-19 (!!!!). I have posted 2 pictures of the bottle. Sorry to leave a bad review because maybe the contents are delicious but it seems as if this bottle was stored upside down.
Siddhartha (Dover Thrift Editions)
Siddhartha (Dover Thrift Editions)
I just finished reading Siddhartha, and I can safely say without a shadow of a doubt, that it is now my favourite book. It's simply amazing that this was published in 1922, it is a timeless breath of simplicity and creativity. Herman Hesse was known for writing semi autobiographical novels, and this one is no exception; the character Siddhartha is even recognised for his writing ability at one stage of the novel. Siddhartha is heavily influenced by Hesse's close relationship with the great Swisse psychologist Carl Jung, and it is a treat to experience the archetypal imagery that Hesse manages to bring to life with sheer mastery. The novel reads like an old mythic tale, told with simple descriptive prose, and playful dialogue: the characters even refer to themselves in the third person! While reading Siddhartha, I couldn't help but picture the novel's world as being hand drawn, like the old drawings of the Buddha and the Hindu and Buddhist mythologies of old. The book is divided into three parts, which symbolically follow Siddhartha's birth, death, and rebirth. The Siddhartha in the novel is not related to the Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha), but he exists in the same time as him, and the two cross paths in the book. Even though they are unrelated, and the story hasn't much to do with the Buddha, the novel implies that the Buddha exists everywhere and in everyone and is merely a representation of the enlightenment available to anyone, at any moment. Whether it be at the moment of physical death, sickness, wealth, sadness, or simply holding and looking at a rock, one is capable of `waking up' and seeing the inter connectedness of everything.

I won't elaborate any further on the book, I would hate to subtract any of your enjoyment out of reading it yourself, and if you haven't, I urge you to. One important thing to consider before reading it however, (it is a fairly short read - roughly 80 pages) is the translation. The original was written in German, so the translation of the book can make or break it. Some translations are really poor, while others capture the essence of the novel beautifully and gracefully, like a net catches a butterfly before releasing it into the wind. Below is a extract of the book, spanning all (or at least most) of the English translations available to you, to help you choose the right version for you. I've ordered them in order of best to worst, though you might have a different opinion to me.

SIDDHARTHA ENGLISH TRANSLATION COMPARISON:

Dover Thrift, introduction, translation and glossary of Indian terms by Stanley Appelbaum (1998)

Instructed by the samana elder, Siddhartha practiced denial of self; he practiced concentration in accordance with new samana rules. A heron flew over the bamboo forest - and Siddhartha absorbed the heron into his soul; he flew over forest and mountain, he was the heron, he ate fish, he hungered with a heron's hunger, he spoke with a heron's croaking, he died a heron's death. A dead jackal lay on the sandy riverbank, and Siddhartha's soul slipped into the carcass; he was a dead jackal, he lay on the sand, he swelled up, stank, rotted, was torn apart by hyenas, was skinned by vultures, became a skeleton, turned to dust, blew away into the fields. And Siddhartha's soul returned; it had died, it had rotted, it had fallen into dust, it had tasted the dismal intoxication of the cycle of existences; filled with fresh thirst, like a hunter it was awaiting the gap through which it might escape the cycle, where causation would come to an end, where sorrowless eternity began. He mortified his senses, he mortified his power to remember, he stole out of his ego and into a thousand unfamiliar forms of creation; he was an animal, he was a carcass, he was stone, he was wood, he was water, and each time, upon awakening, he found himself again; the sun or the moon was shining; he was himself once again, he was moving through the cycle; he felt thirst, overcame his thirst, felt fresh thirst.

Modern Library, a translation by Susan Bernofsky, foreword by Tom Robbins, translator's preface (2006)

Instructed by the eldest of the Samanas, Siddhartha practiced the eradication of ego, practiced samadhi according to new Samana rules. A heron flew over the bamboo forest--and Siddhartha received the heron into his soul, flew over forests and mountains, was heron, ate fish, felt the pangs of heron hunger, spoke in heron squawks, died heron death. A dead jackal lay on the sandy bank, and Siddhartha's soul slipped into the corpse, was dead jackal, lay on the beach, grew bloated, stank, decayed, was torn apart by hyenas and flayed by vultures, became a skeleton, became dust, blew into the fields. And Siddhartha's soul returned, it had died, had decayed, become dust, it had tasted the bleak euphoria of the cyclical journey, and then, freshly thirsty, it waited crouching like a hunter for the gap in the cycle where escape was possible, where the end of causality began, an eternity free of sorrow. He killed off his senses, he killed off his memory, he slipped from his Self to enter a thousand new shapes, was animal, was cadaver, was stone, was wood, was water, and each time he awakened he found himself once more, the sun would be shining, or else the moon, and he was once more a Self oscillating in the cycle, he felt thirst, overcame the thirst, felt new thirst.

Shambhala Classics, a translation by Sherab Chödzin Kohn, introduction by Paul W. Morris, translator's preface (1998).

Taught by the eldest shramana, Siddhartha practiced self-abnegation, practiced meditative absorption according to the new instructions of the shramanas. A heron flew over the bamboo grove, and Siddhartha became one with the heron in his mind, flew over forest and mountain, became a heron, ate fish, hungered with a heron's hunger, spoke a heron's croaking languages, died a heron's death. There was a dead jackal lying on the sandy bank, and Siddhartha's mind slipped into the carcass, became a dead jackal, lay on the shore, swelled up, stank, rotted, was torn to pieces by hyenas, flayed by vultures, became a skeleton, became dust, blew about in the fields. And Siddhartha's mind returned, dead, rotten, reduced to dust, having tasted the dark drunkenness of the cycle of existence. With a new craving it lay in wait like a hunter for the gap where that cycle could be escaped, where the end of causation could begin, eternity without suffering. He slipped out of his ego into a thousand alien forms, became a beast, carrion, became stone, wood, water--yet each time when he awoke he found himself there again. By sunshine or by moonlight, he was once again ego, was pressed back into the cycle, felt craving, overcame the craving, felt craving anew.

Bantam Books, a translation by Hilda Rosner (1951). This translation is also available in a number of different editions from other publishers.

Instructed by the eldest of the Samanas, Siddhartha practiced self-denial and meditation according to the Samana rules. A heron flew over the bamboo wood and Siddhartha took the heron into his soul, flew over forest and mountains, became a heron, ate fishes, suffered heron hunger, used heron language, died a heron's death. A dead jackal lay on the sandy shore and Siddhartha's soul slipped into its corpse; he became a dead jackal, lay on the shore, swelled, stank, decayed, was dismembered by hyenas, was picked at by vultures, became a skeleton, became dust, mingled with the atmosphere. And Siddhartha's soul returned, died, decayed, turned into dust, experienced the troubled course of the life cycle. He waited with new thirst like a hunter at a chasm where the life cycle ends, where there is an end to causes, where painless eternity begins. He killed his senses, he killed his memory, he slipped out of his Self in a thousand different forms. He was animal, carcass, stone, wood, water, and each time he reawakened. The sun or moon shone, he was again Self, swung into the life cycle, felt thirst, conquered thirst, felt new thirst.

Penguin, a translation by Joachim Neugroschel, introduction by Ralph Freedman, translator's note (2002).

Taught by the eldest of the samanas, Siddhartha practiced unselfing, practiced meditation, according to the samana rules. A heron flew over the bamboo forest--and Siddhartha took the heron into his soul, flew over forests and mountains, was a heron, ate fish, hungered heron hunger, spoke heron croaking, died heron death. A dead jackal lay on the sandy bank, and Siddhartha's soul slipped into the cadaver, was a dead jackal, lay on the shore, swelled, stank, rotted, was shredded by hyenas, was skinned by vultures, became a skeleton, became dust, wafted into the fields. And Siddhartha's soul returned, was dead, was rotted, was dispersed, had tasted the dismal drunkenness of the cycle of life, waited in new thirst like a hunter, waited for the gap through which he could escape the cycle, where the end of causes came, where painless eternity began. He killed his senses, he killed his memory, he slipped from his ego into a thousand different formations. He was animal, was carcass, was rock, was wood, was water, and he always found himself again upon awakening. Sun was shining or moon, he was self again, swinging in the cycle, felt thirst, overcame thirst, felt new thirst.

Barnes & Noble Classics, a translation by Rika Lesser, introduction and notes by Robert A.F. Thurman (2007)

Instructed by the eldest of the shramanas, Siddhartha practiced moving away from the self, practiced meditation, following new rules, the shramanas' rules. A heron flew over the bamboo forest--and Siddhartha took the heron into his soul, flew over the forest and the mountains, was the heron, gobbled fish, hungered as a heron hungers, spoke heron croak, died the death of a heron. A dead jackal lay on the sandy shore, and Siddhartha's soul slid inside its corpse, became the dead jackal, lay on the strand, swelled up, stank, putrefied, was dismembered by the hyenas, skinned by vultures, became bones, dust, blew in open country. And Siddhartha's soul died, decayed, turned to dust, tasted the muddy rush of the cycle, waiting in new thirst like a hunter for the gap where the cycle would be escaped, where the end of causes, where eternity free of suffering would begin. He mortified his senses, he slew his memory, he slid out of his I into a thousand alien shapes, became beast, carrion, stone, wood, water, and found himself every time awakening again, in the light of the sun or the moon, again he was I, whirling around in the round, he felt thirst, conquered thirst, felt thirst anew.
Rex Stout: A Majesty's Life-Millennium Edition
Rex Stout: A Majesty's Life-Millennium Edition
Rex Stout in his maturity was "a man of mythic dimensions." He helped enlighten America about the Nazi threat, fought racism and supported world government. You'll get all the details in this scholarly biography.

You'll also encounter interviews and vignettes that give an intimate picture of Rex Stout - demeanor, behavior and opinions. I was delighted to learn that he hid boxes of chocolates and that he built a special cabinet with one slide-out shelf per shirt to keep his shirts pristine. The comic poem Stout wrote (page 249) to defend his profession of "mystery monger" is a treat. And the many insights into the Wolfe-Archie dynamic were just what I wanted from this book.

But for a recreational reader like me, the book does have some slow-going passages. While Stout's first marriage goes by in a paragraph, his leadership of boards and committees merits long chapters. This is an authorized biography; achievements must be chronicled.

In any case, I found it fascinating that Wolfe, the most rational of detectives, came to Stout, the most rational of writers, as pure inspiration. Wolfe and Archie simply happened one day. After this spontaneous birth, plots came to Stout as he puttered around. He let his characters fill in the story, and he did no revisions. McAleer's portrayal of how Stout created the Wolfe series is a delight.
Garri Potter I Filofskij Kamen = Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone (Russian Edition)
Garri Potter I Filofskij Kamen = Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone (Russian Edition)
I'm a polyglot so when I saw Harry Potter in Russian, I had to have it. It's more difficult reading than the graded readers I use to teach with, but the kids got excited to even read a few paragraphs from it. It has joined my American, British, German, Spanish, and French versions, and I have no doubt I will purchase more volumes just because I want it in Russian. When my students see it, they are intrigued by the lettering, and more than one has learned the basics of Russian just to be able to read a little. I would not recommend it to beginners, as the word stock is not graded down, but for pleasurable reading, it's a great way to keep up one's vocabulary and grammar!

Harry Potter: Harry Potter und das verwunschene Kind. Teil eins und zwei (Special Rehearsal Edition Script) German edition of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Seit Ewigkeiten liegt dieses Buch auf meinem SuB, warum weiß ich bis heute nicht. Da ich nun dieses Jahr ein Harry Potter Jahr gemacht habe, wollte ich auch dieses endlich einmal gelesen haben. Die Geschichte selbst ist wie ein Skript geschrieben und deshalb hatte ich das Buch innerhalb kürzester Zeit verschlungen. Man sollte beim lesen aber kein Roman erwarten. Hier gibt es leider keine ausführlichen Charakterbeschreibungen, Gedanken oder andere ausführliche Gespräche. Dieses Buch ist einfach kurz und knapp gehalten und trotzdem ist es spannend. Doch leider hat mir hier das besondere magische Gefühl gefehlt, was man sonst immer hatte. Jeder der es schon gelesen hat weiß bestimmt was ich meine oder?

Ich fand es dennoch einfach mal interessant so was in der Art zu lesen. Hier stehen die Dialoge einfach mal mehr im Vordergrund als alles drum herum. Mir hat die Geschichte hat mir an sich ganz gut gefallen, in Harrys Familie gibt es einen Slytherin (das hätte niemand gedacht), die Zeitreisen werden deutlicher erklärt und Snape ist auf einmal wieder da. Wie ich bereits erwähnte war das eine spannende Geschichte die mit jeder Seite mitreisender wird. Es gab so einiges was einen neugierig macht und zum grübeln brachte. Dennoch merkte man auch das J.K. Rowling nicht alleine daran gearbeitet hatte. Viele geliebte Charaktere haben sich anders entwickelt als man denkt und handeln demnach auch so. Was ich sehr schade finde. Klar sind einige Jahre ins Land gezogen dennoch hätte ich nicht gedacht das Harry so ein Vater ist. Zum einen ist er so rührselig- zum anderen sehr aggressiv. Teilweise handelt er auch sehr unüberlegt was mich als Harry Fan doch sehr schockiert. Klar er ist selbst ohne Eltern aufgewachsen dennoch hätte ich nicht so einen Harry erwarten zudem er sich entwickelt. Und dann wäre da noch Ron, joar was soll ich dazu sagen. Ein Abklatsch seiner selbst. Tut mir leid ich konnte seine ältere Version einfach nicht für voll nehmen. Hermine und Ginny konnten ich ihre Entwicklung tatsächlich so abnehmen, weil die beiden schon immer so irgendwie waren. Und dann wäre noch der gute alte Draco der irgendwie zu einem kleinen Softie mutiert ist.

Natürlich wirken diese Charaktere schon etwas langweilig, was einfach daran liegen könnte das sie erwachsen sind und da nun mal die Schwerpunkte ganz anders verteilt sind. Sie haben Kinder und Jobs den sie nachgehen müssen so ist das Leben nun mal. Da ist nun nichts mehr abenteuerliches bei, außer vielleicht das rumärgern mit den Kindern wenn sich über Verbote hinwegsetzen. Dennoch hatte ich das Gefühl es fehlte da eine gewisse Spannung. Wenn man den Titel liest denkt man gleich Harry ist die Hauptfigur. Das ist hier aber nicht der Fall. Hier geht es mehr um Albus, Harrys Sohn, und Scorpius, Dracos Sohn. An sich ist auch toll mal neue Charaktere zu fokussieren dennoch hatte ich das Gefühl das Harry eher als unwichtig betrachtet wurde. Wo Harry Potter drauf steht erwartet man auch irgendwie eine Harry Potter Geschichte. Und nicht das dieser als Nebencharakter auftritt. Ansonsten war es eine interessante Geschichte mit einigen Schwächen.

"Harry Potter und das verwunschene Kind" ist ein schöner Zusatz zur Harry Potter Sammlung. Für jeden Fan ein Muss, auch wenn es nicht ganz so ist wie man erwartet. Durch die Skript Form geht vieles von der Magie verloren. Auch wenn die Geschichte gerade am Anfang sehr platt wirkt bekommt kommt immer mehr Spannung auf. Auch wenn mir inhaltlich manches zu schnell ging. Leider war ich auch von den Charakteren ein wenig enttäuscht und von ihren Entwicklungen.

My Name Is Emily
My Name Is Emily
Who writes these films? Seriously. This is yet another preachy, leftist film depicting two awkward teens who find one other, rebel against <insert common descriptor used for movie parents here, such as clueless, abusive, self-absorbed, etc.>, and end up finding their own happily-ever-after. It's a wonder anyone grows-up to be a functioning adult in Western society, what with the pandemic of horrible parenting we've evidently all grown up with.

I also need to ask who picks the music by which to set the overly emotional and/or slow-motion scenes depicting the main characters lost in deep thought, or to display the beautiful scenery through which they're traveling? I am mystified by what passes for popular music these days. It's all whiny, nasally vocalists who sound like they're being strangled, with only acoustic guitars for accompaniment. Does talent count in the music business anymore? It's honestly depressing.

Look, there's an obvious agenda being pushed in this film. It's the same one that's been being pushed onto Western culture for decades: "Facts are only points-of-view, and points-of-view can change." Emily lectures Arden in the convenience store before she steals their breakfast,

"Listen, everything that you call a fact is just a bunch of people getting together, agreeing on something and then calling it a fact. That's how facts change. People change their minds. The world is flat. The world is round. You can't really blame people for wanting to believe in facts, but without another point-of-view to disagree with us - say, an alien - we'll never know if our opinion on anything is right or wrong. And even if we had an alien, that's just two points-of-view. Just 'cause facts are opinions doesn't mean they're wrong. They're usually right. It's just that when we forget that they're just well-thought-out opinions, that's when people start doing stupid things like making atomic bombs. They think, 'Facts are facts. We have to do it just to show that we could.' Facts are just the excuse for everything. The sun will rise tomorrow. Is that a fact? No! It's a point-of-view."

So, in other words, because a group of people have gotten together and decided on the rules, those rules have become facts. But because PEOPLE have agreed on them, OTHER people can come along and "un-agree" on them and then change them. Rules can change! (So, for example, if some people say it's not okay to kill inconvenient children, other people can come along and decide that it's really okay for people to kill inconvenient children. See how that works? Never mind physics or mathematics, or just plain old, common decency.)

You may think I'm over-thinking this. It's just a film, right? But this film, and thousands more like it are just one way the Leftist/Socialist/Marxist/Progressive movement (call them what you want, but there's certainly nothing "progressive" about their beliefs) has gotten a strangle-hold on Western culture. People watch films for entertainment, and that's how these ridiculously stupid ideas slip into the collective conscience of gullible generations who have been taught, among other things, revisionist history in schools. They've been using the Arts to subvert culture for decades and have been extremely successful. Just look around you. There are a lot of people who believe that truth is subjective; that their truth is true for them, and your truth is true for you. They honestly believe that "a fact is just a point-of-view". But what if your truth and my truth are polar opposites? Can anyone see how dangerous this is? Believing the lie this movie is preaching is what makes people REALLY start doing stupid things. No one can live this way in the real world. It doesn't work. No matter how much I believe that a red light means "Go", it's going to clash with your TRUE belief (therefore a FACT) that a green light means "Go". And would any of us really want to drive across a bridge designed and built by engineers who believe that "facts are just points-of-view"?

Anyway, I've given this film two stars for the lovely scenery, which is supposed to be Ireland. But if you care at all about truth and are sick to death of having the pervasive, yet utterly bankrupt, leftist ideology which has all but ruined Europe shoved down your throat, I'd give this one a hard pass.
The Stronghold
The Stronghold
I viewed this movie on Amazon Prime by accident thinking I was getting something else and got hooked in. Since it is a Ukrainian film it is dubbed, but still easy to follow. The basic theme is a teenage boy with a deep seated fear of heights from a childhood trauma who gets sucked back in time a 1000 years or so to a time of conflict between his Ukrainian forebears and the Turkic Cumans. The story line portrays what he goes through to return to the present, with periodic comedy bits, including takeoffs on films that have warriors defeat impossible odds without a scratch. Part of the fun is how the locals are unfazed by a visitor from the future and his bag of stuff (including a cell phone that apparently has a battery that never runs out). Naturally some magic has to be thrown in, with a Cuman holy man who can more or less use his powers to tell what the boy is up to, ultimately getting his hand on a powerful artifact the boy has retrieved that supposedly can return him to his own time (with some great scenes of it fizzling when he tries to use it for that purpose). Eventually the holy man uses the artifact to create a massive stone golem intended to enable the Cuman to overpower the Ukrainians (with some hilarious scenes of the Ukrainian attempts to take it out). I found the acting overall to be pretty good. The film is actually incredible considering its low budget. There are some flaws (a bit of overacting in spots, a few story line holes, and occasional inconsistencies), but it all holds together as good fun-filled entertainment.

LEGO Harry Potter Ultimate Sticker Collection: More Than 1,000 Stickers
For young Lego Harry Potter fans, this sticker collection should keep them amused for quite some time, and even though it's not hardback, the book itself is the usual excellent quality that you'd expect from Dorling Kindersley. Just as it says on the cover, there's over 1,000 stickers, but with many of them being very small, and included as extras for decorative features on other things aside from the book itself. When opened up, many of the pages within have been designed to actively engage with the Lego Wizarding World releases from 2018, and although the book makes a nice standalone gift, it has clearly been published to compliment the Lego sets represented, such as the Hogwarts Great Hall, the Hogwarts Express, Aragog's Lair, the Whomping Willow, and the Quidditch Match, among others.

Generation Decks: The Unofficial History of Gaming Phenomenon Magic the Gathering (1)
Generation Decks: The Unofficial History of Gaming Phenomenon Magic the Gathering (1)
I'm not a hardcore magic player. In fact, my only opponents have been reluctant siblings who don't share my interest. I am however a lover of collectible toys and fantasy art and Magic is both. The original ebook released under the title "So Do You Wear a Cape?" some years ago was a very enjoyable read and this work is an expanded version of that.

The most enjoyable parts are the chapters on the origin story of the game. What blood, sweat and tears went into its creation. The stories of players buying in a frenzy stirs up the collector/ hoarder in me that keeps me coming back to re-read once in awhile. However, it seems like the author has morphed this version of the book into somewhat a part auto-biography, detailing his emotional attachment to the game and his life growing up around it, which, I guess must be rather cathartic for himself but really could have done without. The negativity kind of puts a damper on the pacing.

Some sections have also been updated to reflect the development of the game in the digital age. There seems to be a lot more tournament discussion than I previously remembered which made some parts a slog to read through since the specifics weren't all that interesting. Overall though, for magic fans I think this is a must read.

El producto es bueno, cumple su propósito ahí no hay dudas, pero el diseño es terrible, está pensado para conectar 6 cables idénticos y delgados pues en cuanto conectas cualquier cargador de celular, adaptadores de corriente de electrónicos y demás taparás el enchufe de a lado y realmente acabas usando solo 4 de los 6. Lo cual tampoco está mal, para uso normal de casa la verdad no he tenido problema usando solo 4 de 6. Yo creo que es por eso que incluyen 2 unidades en la caja. Así si conviene, buen precio la verdad. El LED azul no es muy brillante como para molestar pero suficiente para que sepas que está haciendo su chamba de supresor de picos.

Waterproof Case for 40mm Apple Watch 4,IP68 Waterproof Dust-Proof Shockproof Case with Watchband for Apple Watch Black (40mm Apple Watch Waterproof Case)
When I first took it out of the box I thought they sent me the wrong size because it seemed so huge compared to the size of my watch. It’s just huge but it the right one for my 40mm. I have a series 5 and it works fine even tho it says series 4. I can not attest for its extra abilities under water but I have watered and played in the garden and washed my face several times with it on and it worked just fine. The screen protector is thin and does not effect to use of the watch. It takes some getting use to because of its size but the ease of mind not worrying about it getting wet and knocking it around is worth it to me. I also kind of like that it doesn’t really look like an Apple Watch any more just a really industrial sports watch. I wish it came in colors or I could change the straps for colored ones to just add some fun but love the function and ease of instal!

Well, at least this show gave me something to take away. Now I know if ever there is an apocalyptic event, all I have to do is make my way to Titusvillle, Pa. Between supposed bad guys that are slow as...whatever and one chick that is supposed to be the heroine, the place looks like a cake walk for a real person. I mean if the best they can do is some chick that can't find an appropriate survival wardrobe and seems to get herself into a jam every 5 minutes, how hard can surviving be for someone that can use their brains?
I really like dystopian viewing and reading material, but even with a small budget, some things just need to happen. In a movie or series one thing is don't wait until the last episode to give really just a broad brush of what the overall plot was supposed to be, Feeding little tidbits throughout instead of walking around in circles is usually considered a good move. But, maybe this was supposed to build suspense, all the wandering round looking bad ass. Because it couldn't be assumed based on the first 5 minutes of episode 1 that our female protagonist was going to be the bad ass star of the show. Nope, let's burn at least another 10 to 15 minutes of every episode retelling that part of the story.

This is just really lame, writing, directing, acting. I can forgive the sets and props, but do something with what you have to work with other than running across the same roof 5 times or strolling through the same tire yard 10 times. I really can't believe this script wasn't discussed with at least one person that didn't roll their eyes and ask WTF. Then again, maybe Titusviille, Pa. is the place to be after bad things happen. I could get used to being the king. .

Israel - Island of Success: This book takes up the challenge of looking into the mechanism of Israel's success: Why is Israel a success? Is this success sustainable? What is Israel's probable future?
Authors Noga Kainan and Adam Reuter invite you to join them on a journey to discover the real reality of Israel. This well written and researched book will be a real eye opener not only for the general public, but perhaps for Israelis themselves.

An excerpt from the introduction explains a portion of what this book is all about: “In many ways, Israel is an island, and its residents live in this sense. Although geographically it is not, in practice, for years, it has been isolated from its hostile environment and lives as a “state surrounded by enemies.” It is an island of stability, an island of sanity, the only Western democracy in the Middle East, whose economic, social, and cultural power separates it from its neighbors and places it among the world’s most successful countries.”

While some people may have issues with the Jews and Israel in general, they have no problem reaping the benefits of the medical, technological and scientific advances they have achieved to make this world a better place to live in. Just a thought.

Mordenmiss Women's New Cotton Linen Full Front Buttons Jacket Outfit with Pockets
Mordenmiss Women's New Cotton Linen Full Front Buttons Jacket Outfit with Pockets
While the body is just about right (only a tiny fraction tight across the back), the sleeves are definitely too narrow. The cut will work best on women who have normal/skinny arms; if your arms are muscular/thick like mine, this company's clothes probably aren't for you. Most clothing designers/manufacturers work off a base pattern, which allows us to reliably expect the same fit across all the company's clothes. I'd have to step up two sizes to get the arms to fit nicely, by which point the jacket body will just swamp me, which means I can expect the same proportions in anything else I'd order from Mordenmiss. Bummer.

That said, I love the color and cut so much, and I fortunately have the skills to adapt this, rather than bother with sending it back. I'm mid-plan to dismantle the sleeves, lower the armscye by about an inch, and add a gusset to the sleeves, once I find a nice cotton-linen in a color that complements the deep teal. The jacket sleeves currently end just shy of my wrist bone, but I prefer about an inch longer, so I may dismantle the cuffs and extend them a little, too.

I'm used to some fashion designers making sleeves too close-fitting for those of us cursed with the genetics for muscular/thick arms, but I'd been hoping that such a generously-cut coat would have generously-cut sleeves, too. Disappointing to discover this wasn't so.

Most of my baby's clothes are from Carter's, so I was surprised when I received this 3-Pack that it was so snug, and then I realized this was the "Snug Fit." I'm glad I ordered it earlier on, as it fits my 9 month old perfectly. The wrist and ankle areas are the most snug. Nowhere else feels too tight. My daughter is in the 75th percentile for reference.
What is really nice about these pajamas are the grips on the bottoms of her feet, because she's starting to stand and cruise on furniture. At this age, I prefer the grips over non-grip bottoms for sure.

1 star off only because out of the 3-Pack, one of them arrived with the top zipper-cover snap tag (literally) hanging by a thread (which Amazon gave me some credit for). Also, if you're used to all other Carter's sizes, you're going to be surprised by the fit.

I also ordered the 18 month snug fit with different patterns. My baby actually fits in them width wise because they're snug fit, but they're definitely a little too long for her now.

I ordered one of these in white to see if it would fit, and look nice beside my king sized bed. I chose this because of it being washable, as I have 3 small dogs and didn't want to invest in something real unless I knew how they would react. That was 48 hours ago, and I ordered a second for the other side of the bed today. We have all wood floors, and the more expensive rugs we had down were always slipping and moving. I had no idea if this fabric back rug would be a disaster for slipping, but was pleasantly surprised... it's not budged since I put it down. As for my 3 tiny fur babies... no accidents or special interest, other than one seems to think it's a new bed for him and he seems to like laying on it. Now for aesthetics... does it look like real sheepskin? Of course not! But for under $40 I sure haven't found one that's more full or fluffy. Speaking of, when I took it out of the neatly folded package, of course it didn't look its best. I simply shook it out, and put it in my dryer on a fluff cycle for about 15 minutes. I don't need to bother you with a pic, as it looks exactly like the stock photo. Obviously, I can't speak about durability or wear yet, but for the price... if it looks nice thru a few washes, I won't mind replacing them in 6 months if necessary. I think I now just need to find one of the matching pillows they show in the ad to balance out the look. I hope this helps you if you're trying to decide on ordering.
Update: Today we washed the second one for the first time, and it turned into something totally different.. more like a throw for furniture than a rug. The backing is totally different, and instead of appearing like the flat backing on the first one, it's got some kind of fill between layers, and it looks more like a sheepskin throw. Obviously the seller received the product from different sources or materials. We like them both, but for totally different purposes now. Yet as we're still able to use both, I'm about to order a third, in hopes of getting another one with the backing that stays flat like a rug. Who knows, but for $40, I'm willing to order another. However, if quality goes down hill from here, I'll update again. With tiny dogs and a toddler snuggling them, I'm just grateful they're washable.

OH. MY. GOD! I normally let several products build up & then write a bunch of reviews together but I've just spent my first night with these babys & I think they've saved my marriage. My husband works really hard & starts really early in the morning so goes to sleep really early too but he snores like a combine harvester & by the time I'm ready to sleep he's in full baritone, window rattling flow. We've tried all the over the counter options & surgery is the only thing left. Well my phone must have been listening in at me moaning about my ear buds stabbing into my ears when I turn on my side & strangling me with wires at 4am because an advert on Facebook suggested some sleep headphones & for once I'm so glad it did. They were from some American site which is something I hate about facebook as I'm not interested in the long wait or extra import costs so I thought I'd look on Amazon & boom! There they are!
I went for these slightly more expensive ones because I do find cheap earphones die pretty quickly & the extra few quid saves on the cost of replacing all the time. Now, it's only been the first night but I'm hopelessly in love, I've been singing their praises on all my podcast facebook groups & subreddits, they're so comfy & to be able to wander to the fridge or the loo without disturbance is wonderful
I'm only 24hrs in but I do believe they've saved my marriage. I haven't tested them working out because I do Yoga & like to hear the instructor so thats not what I bought them for. The only thing I would like is a little velcro patch to tighten them slightly but as others have done I'll just put a little stitch in them. So far they're my favourite purchase of 2020!

Researched a lot of other similar products, between £10 - £17; read a lot of reviews and got it down to a choice of three.
Found the #1 Best Seller - sleeping pillow tab very useful. Almost went for the Jokel one, looked good and wanted to team it up with their air pad, but ultimately plumped for the Trekology one.
Some reviewers for this product mentioned issues with the valve or loosing air with no visible holes, so I'll keep an eye on any issues; four stars so far will evaluate after twenty+ wild camp uses.
On the plus side, material feels great, a brushed percale like texture and love the overall style and the design of this product; the strap is very useful and wraps around the air pad with ease. Very easy to inflate and deflate, no issues so far and easily rolls back up into it's sack.
Overall great value, very happy with my purchase and as you can see from the photo I have recently purchased the air pad from Trekology as well!😁
But that's another story.

Für ein Black-Friday-Schnäppchen finde ich das Gerät gut.
Zum regulären Preis hätte mir der Vollautomat 1-2 Negativpunkte zu viel.

Pro und Contra in Stichpunkten (o = Neutral)
+ Viele Kaffeesorten voreingestellt
+ Sauber aufgeräumte Bedieneinheit (Touchpanel mit den Kaffetassen)
+ Kaffee schmeckt klasse, wenn man seine Einstellung gefunden hat
+ Milchschaumgetränke mit einem Knopfdruck
+ gutes Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis
+ Brüheinheit kann unter Wasserhahn gereinigt werden
o One Touch Drehtaster funktioniert wie bei anderen Geräten (Autoradio, etc.)
o Wenn Kaffeebohne nicht reicht, wird das Angefangene verworfen (ist bei vielen Geräten so)
o Gerät will ständig etwas (wie ein Tamagotchi; ist wohl normal bei denen incl. Milchschaumkanne)
o Das Gerät ist auch nicht leiser wie unsere alte Jura C5 (macht nichts, aber dafür, dass damit geworben wird.. naja)
- Das Zwei-Kammer Bohnensystem macht wenig Sinn und ist viel zu klein
- Kaffee dauert länger bis er fertig ist, als bei anderen Geräten die ich kenne
- Software ist nicht immer intuitiv und zum Teil umständlich
- Kunststoffblende für Brüheinheit mit Rastnasen, statt Schließmechanik
- Metallgitter und Kunststoff ziemlich dünn
- Blende um den Startknopf ist eingedellt

Ich habe bisher Erfahrung mit der eigenen Jura Impressa C5, der alten Saeco Incanto, der Nivona 730 aus dem Betrieb und der Saeco Moltio vom Bekannten.
Unsere Jura ist in die Jahre gekommen und die nächste Wartung hätte sich nicht rentiert,
außerdem wollte meine Frau etwas ähnliches wie die Saeco Moltio vom Bekannten, mit der man mit einem Knopfdruck Latte Machiato herstellen kann.
Beim Black-Friday war die Melitta-C1-Touch im Angebot, deshalb haben wir uns für diese in Silber entschieden.

Als das Gerät angekommen ist habe ich mich erst einmal gefreut, dass sie schön stramm eingepackt ist, wodurch Transportschäden verhindert werden.
Beim Auspacken ist mir aufgefallen, dass die Blende um den Startknopf eingedellt ist; das ist aber sogar auf den Werbefotos zu sehen.
Scheinbar wird das Gerät beim Montieren plan auf die linke Seite gelegt, wodurch der Startknopf die Blende verbiegt.

Dafür dass das Gerät als silber verkauft wird finde ich sie ziemlich dunkel.
Ich überlege die Blende für die Brüheinheit mit Chrom-Folie zu überkleben, wenn wir die Melitta behalten.

Für den Erstbetrieb sind kleine Kaffeemengen für eher kleine Tassen eingestellt.
Mit einem kurzen Blick ins Handbuch habe ich alle Standardgetränke auf unsere Tassen eingestellt.
Wen's interessiert, meine Einstellung:
- Espresso: Kaffeemenge 70ml, Kaffee stark
- Caffe Creme: Kaffeemenge 190ml, Kaffee normal
- Cappuchino: Kaffeemenge 130ml, Milchmenge 120ml, Kaffee stark
- Latte: Kaffeemenge 120ml, Milchmenge 140ml, Kaffee stark

Leider hat das Gerät einige negative Besonderheiten, die die Freude über den guten Preis trüben.
Die Blenden, Gitter und Gehäuseteile machen eher einen dünnen Eindruck.
z.B. die Tropfschale kann man mit wenig Druck 5mm nach unten biegen.
Am übelsten finde ich, dass die Blende rechts nur eingeklippt wird.
Das Abbrechen der Rastnastnasen ist vorprogrammiert. (Jedes andere Gerät hat einen mechanischen Schließmechanismus für die Blende zum schieben, oder drehen).
Schließlich soll man wöchentlich diese Blende öffnen um die Brüheinheit abzuwaschen.

Das mechanische Zwei-Kammer-Bohnen-System ist viel zu klein und macht für uns wenig Sinn: Ich nehme gerne Getränke für dunkle Bohnen, meine Frau für helle Bohnen.
Durch den Vorlauf in der Mechanik muss man ein Getränk im voraus wissen, was als nächstes kommt. Wie soll das funktionieren? Auf dunkle Bohne eingestellt, Frau will helle Bohne, ich müsste erst mal einen Kaffe trinken, damit sie helle Bohne hat - hää??

Die Software finde ich auch zum Teil verbesserungswürdig. Manchmal kommt es mir vor, als wäre sie mehr mit sich selbst beschäftigt, als mit ihrem Job.
Sprich: Langer Ladebalken beim Hochfahren, Kaffee dauert länger als mit Jura und Nivona und der Latte dauert länger als mit Saeco Moltio.
Zu den Spezial-Kaffesorten (Lungo, etc) kommt man erst über drei Ebenen (ich habe deshalb die User 1-4 deaktiviert um eine Ebene zu sparen).
Besser wäre es, wenn die Spezial-Kaffesorten in der gleichen Ebene wie die User kommen würden.
Bei der Bestätigung mit dem Rotary-Switch reagiert der Taster oft recht schwer. Und im Menü funktioniert das Teil oft nur in eine Drehrichtung (definitv ein Bug).
=> Ich hoffe es kommt noch ein Firmware-Update für die Bugs und Langsamkeiten.

Feature Request für den Bohnenbehälter:
Wie wäre es mit einem 5-10cm Kunststoff-Rand als Ersatzteil, der zwischen Deckel und Bohnenbehälter gesteckt wird?! ("Aufstellbriedle" heißt das bei uns in der Region..)
Muss halt unten strammer sitzen als oben und auch den Trennsteg besitzen.

Wir werden uns die Sache noch bis kurz vor'm Ende der Rückgabe-Möglichkeit ansehen.
Wenn es uns mit dem Gerät zu bunt wird, wird es wohl doch eine Philips 5365 (Alternative zu Moltio), Siemens EQ.6 plus (definitiv leiser), oder Nivona 768.

Nachtrag nach sechs Wochen:
Wir haben kurz vor der Rückgabefrist die Melitta zurückgeschickt und eine Nivona 778 in weiß gekauft.
Die Negativpunkte haben uns bei der Melitta einfach zu sehr genervt.
Die Nivona ist chicker, schmaler, einfacher zu bedienen und macht einen wertigeren Eindruck.
Außerdem war die NICR778 im Angebot (da Auslaufmodel zur NICR779, welche etwas leiser ist) und hat mir final nur 30,- mehr gekostet als die Melitta beim Black Friday.

Meine persönliche Reihenfolge nach wochenlangen Tests:
Nivona 778 (minimal lauter, aber schicker) > Melitta C1 Touch > Siemens EQ6 300 plus (etwas leiser, aber Kaffe nicht so lecker) > Philips 5365 (fester Behälter, statt Schlauch)

Since working from home has been the new norm, my low back was in excruciating pain with my old office task chair that offered no lumbar support. As nice as it would be to have the super fancy Herman Miller chairs, the price tag on those aren't exactly ideal. With so many options on Amazon, I decided on this because of the 3 most important features I knew I needed to have: 1) Lumbar Support, 2) High back with adjustable headrest, 3) Heavy Duty mesh and supports up to 300lbs (which means that the durability and comfort will be optimal and long lasting for someone like me who is 140lbs). It does have arm rests that flip up. I wasn't too concerned about arm rests so I did like the option of not having them if they got in the way. But now that I have the chair, I actually really love the arm rests and are really useful in keeping my arms in ergonomic form when I type or use my Wacom tablet. The arm rests weren't too high for me when I sit down (I am 5'6") The chair is surprisingly comfy and extremely supportive. I cannot emphasize this enough!! The difference in pain I had in my low back before to now where it is non existent blows me away. I thought I had to pay for a $500 chair to get close to the comfort of what I was used to in my office but I'm super happy with this buy and even happier that I can work pain-free.

Well, I certainly learned my lesson!! I was a bit tight on funds and the reviews were so good that I thought I'd stray from the FINNSKA I'd spent decades to find and then decades enjoying. BIG mistake, sorry guys.
- No significant flavor AT ALL (I know the difference between the overpowering artificial flavor versus the more subtle and deep richness of real black licorace; that was not the problem...to be generous, there was but a WISP of flavor.)
- Disgraceful texture - a plastic-like dry sort of rubberyness that actually shocked me.
- Density was NOT bad, but that's where ANY positive began and ended for me...

Needless to say I IMMEDIATELY bit the bullet (and this time, I don't mean this licorace) and ordered my FINNSKA 8.8 LB BAG which arrived today, instantly dipped in and....aaaaah, black licorace HEAVEN!

(Not pandering, honest, but THANK HEAVENS FOR AMAZON!! LOL)
