5.0 out of 5 stars Photos and essay on the golden days of SoCal surfing, February 6, 2016
Beautifully evocative of the golden days of the SoCal beach scene. Makes you understand why all these damn people moved here in the first place.

Fantastic sound. Worth the extra money vs the SC65i, which are also pretty good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Mattress, November 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Awesome. Supper happy with this. More comfortable than a spring mattress. Neat shipping solution. Mattress sprung right into shape; no bends. No smell. 25% of the cost of a similar brand foam matters; this is essential an Amazon house brand. Not hot. It does insulate your back a bit more than a spring mattress but I actually like that; it is a better balance with the comforter; my back used to be colder than my front with the spring mattress.

1.0 out of 5 stars Junk, November 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Piece of junk. Would not recognize that the printer cartridge was in. Kept saying "out of toner". Bought new cartridge for a wildly over priced $70 at rip-off Staples. Did not solve the problem. Lesson learned that I should have remembered from long ago: Never by stuff from HP.

1.0 out of 5 stars Author misses own point, August 20, 2012
The last thing any of us need to accumulate is another book, especially one on the topic of not accumulating anything. Worse yet, this particular object would compel you to spend time reading it, thereby messing up the author's very own objective of not cluttering up life with things that must be done.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Headset, October 19, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have had this headset for several years and really like it. The ear piece goes in easily with one hand and the sound quality is excellent. The mute switch is visible and easy to use, unlike those on many Bluetooth earpieces. I find the mute switch to be a key feature, frequently engaging it when the kids run into the room during an important call or when I need attend to some bodily function during an interminable conference call.
One downside is that it does not handle wind well; in even a slight breeze, I get complaints from the person on the other end of the line. As long as I am not the main person talking, this is easily solved by using the handy mute switch mentioned above. The other downside is that the long inelegant mic and the non-hip cord make you look like a nerd. I frequently get comments about being "old-school" or on why can't I afford a Bluetooth head set.
But, I don't really care, I love this headset and don't want to carry around another charger for the Bluetooth. I stepped on and broke my long serving instance of this headset over the weekend but just bought three replacements from Amazon so I can keep one in my bag and one in each car. A great value for only about $10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Case, June 26, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nice case that holds a Canon Powershot and a few accessories. Good size. Nice padding. Velcro strap and web pocket inside. Unfortunately, the clip that comes with the case is too cheap to trust. I never did dare hang the camera from it for fear of loss and, sure enough, the clip broke after minimal use. Kind of incongruous because the rest of the case is well built.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chalk up another homerun from Bill Thomson, June 26, 2010
This review is from: Chalk (Hardcover)
I'll admit that my family is made up of Bill Thomson groupies. My kids and I loved his three earlier books, which redefined what a children's illustration can be. My wife constantly pesters our local librarians to add his books with claims that he is the most talented illustrator never to win a Caldecott. Not yet, anyway.
In Chalk, a story about the mischief children can get into with magical chalk, Thomson ups his game. Clearly, the story line is better than past books, even without words. There is a lot of action, a narrative flow, and an open invitation for the readers to supply their words and interpretations. The guarded look back by the boy in yellow on the last page is priceless.
The illustrations too are different, although still extraordinarily detailed. There is a brighter palette with some striking colors. The insert drawings on a number of pages that remind one of the technique Jan Brett uses in The Mitten. The dinosaur playground ride is especially interesting. While everything else in the book is photo-realistic, the ride looks more like the computer generated images in Toy Story, an interesting contrast.
This book would be a great gift for any child ages 3-8.

5.0 out of 5 stars Existential Shock, June 25, 2010
This review is from: Baseball Hour (Hardcover)
If I am remembering my Sartre right, there is a scene in Nausea during which the protagonist experiences the full reality of a tree and cannot bear it; the full detail and complexity of an unmediated existential encounter is overwhelming to his senses.
Seeing the meticulous illustrations in Baseball Hour reminds me of that scene. Baseballs with seams you can count and heads with every hair distinct implore the reader to experience things at a level of detail our senses usually gloss over.
A thoughtful adult reader is more likely to leave this book with a vow to more closely observe reality than any new insights into baseball. The target audience (3-10 year olds) however, is unlikely to experience observational shock and instead will simply be delighted to see these beautiful children joyfully playing their favorite sport. Highly recommended.
