5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and Easy Charging for up to Two Devices in Your Car, August 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When looking for a car charger for your smartphone and tablet, you need look no further than the New Trent Dual High-Speed USB Port Car Charger w/Free Micro-USB Charching Cable (NT85T). Consisting of the charger with two USB slots (1A for your smartphone and 2.1A for your tablet) and a micro USB charging cable, this 15V car charger quickly charges two devices; so your smartphone and tablet can both be fully charged by the time you arrive at your destination. The nicely contoured charger has two metal grips, one on either side that allow the device to securely slide fully into and maintain a firm connection in the charging port in your vehicle. This feature alone sets this device above any other electronic accessory for your car as far as I’m concerned! As an added convenience a bright blue light encircles the charger to indicate it is plugged in and receiving power. You also receive a micro-USB cord with the charger. I highly recommend the NT85T for those needing to quickly charge up to two devices in their car.

5.0 out of 5 stars FUNCTIONAL AND ECONOMICAL ANSWER TO STYLI DILEMMA, July 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
New Trent Arcadia 2pcs Clickpen Stylus/Styli with Micro-Knit Tip for Capacitive Touch Screen Smartphones and Tablets. (TwinPack: Black + White)

The New Trent Arcadia Clickpen Styli (2 pcs.) is an excellent tablet and smartphone accessory. I love the click pen style for exposing or retracting the micro-knit tip, thereby eliminating the worry of trying to keep the tip of the styli protected. It has the look and feel of a traditional pen including the clip, which is quite handy for securing your styli in a pocket of your purse or briefcase, or a shirt pocket. The New Trent Arcadia styli is designed to work with any capacitive touch screen smartphone or tablet. I love the look and feel of the micro-knit tip, which I prefer over the standard rubber tips. The tip end of the stylus is encircled by a clear plastic protective shield, so even when the stylus is clicked in the “closed” position, you don’t have to worry about accidentally scratching your device’s screen if you forget that the tip is retracted. This two pack is perfect so that you can have one stylus to keep with your smartphone and another to go along with your tablet, eliminating the need to scramble around looking for a styli when you need it. New Trent has done it again with an economical, versatile and very functional device accessory!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Stylus for Dual Functionality, June 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Limir Dual Stylus Pen (NT62B) from New Trent has quickly become one of my favorite accessories! It’s both stylish and extremely functional. With the Limir Dual Stylus Pen tucked in your tablet case, you no longer need to fumble for a pen; because with a simple twist of your stylus, voila!, your writing implement is already in hand. It has a pen clip so that you can easily slide it onto the cover of your tablet or in the pocket designed for styli. I absolutely love the metallic weave of the soft stylus end. In fact, the overall look of this accessory is quite classy. The brassy metallic and black color scheme is very aesthetic. It feels so comfortable in your hand and works effectively on a tablet screen. This is truly a quality item which I highly recommend for personal and business use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Wall Charger for Tablet and Smartphone, June 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Dual USB Port Wall Charger (NT90C) is a sleek device designed to save space; and is the perfect accessory for conveniently charging your tablet and smartphone simultaneously and quickly. Simply slip one of these into your computer bag or purse along with the USB cables for your devices (and keep one handy in the office and home as well); and your electronic devices should never run out of power! For a road warrior like myself, this is truly a must have. Rather than traveling with multiple chargers, this single compact unit will keep your devices charged. The speed of the charge is impressive as well. I highly recommend the NT90C for everyone needing to charge multiple devices, and particularly for travelers and others who must save space and consolidate electronic items.

4.0 out of 5 stars A REFRESHINGLY WELL WRITTEN, HEARTRENDING NOVEL, June 29, 2013
This review is from: He Belongs to Me (Kindle Edition)
"He Belongs To Me" is a refreshingly pleasant read packed full of emotion from cover to cover. I was not sure what to expect when I started reading this book, but it quickly drew me in and held me riveted throughout. I found it to be very well written, which is something I don't find too often in today's offerings.

Catherine Boyd has had her share of heartbreak and struggle in her young life. Yet she is determined to create a successful and happy life for herself and her young son, Drew. At times the odds have certainly seemed insurmountable, but Catherine has an indomitable spirit of determination. Married while still nearly a child herself to escape manipulative and abusive parents; her marriage seems doomed from the start when they put themselves in care of those same parents. Thomas, Catherine's vibrant and caring husband; is the target of his in-law's dislike and power plays. After accusations made by Catherine's mother concerning the sudden death of Thomas and Catherine's fragile infant son; Thomas has very little choice but to break away from the poisonous atmosphere created by Catherine's parents and try to get his life back on track. While, in truth, he is abandoning Catherine and their remaining infant son; he must put a distance between himself and the tragic events that have just transpired. He has been accepted in a prestigious university program and has determined to set a course to future security.

Catherine, in the meantime, succumbs yet again to her parents' manipulations, and unknowingly signs away her parental rights to her son, Drew. Believing they have she and her son's best interests in mind, she lets her father talk her into completing her education thousands of miles away from their Chicago area home while her parents care for her son. Her parents' treachery and true intentions are discovered immediately upon Catherine's graduation, just as she prepares to make a home for herself and her son and launch into her new career to support them. Now Catherine finds herself facing a dark chasm, where she must face her deepest fears and confront them head on. She must re-open wounds from the past causing a great deal of pain to herself and those she loves. She must face her husband once again, as she cannot regain her son without his support and she cannot face life without her son. With their turbulent past under scrutiny, will they be able to overcome the overwhelming odds and hurdles to regain custody of their son? Is there any chance they can heal the deep hurts from the past and have a loving relationship again; is there any chance at all for them to renew their marriage and regain custody of Drew; to be the loving family that they had always wanted to be?

This story is bound to tug at your heart strings as you live through the turmoil and pain that Catherine must face in order to redeem herself and her family. It won't let you go until the final pages reveal the denouement to this touching and emotional saga.

I definitely recommend "He Belongs To Me" and look forward to reading other works by Theresa Rizzo.

I decided to pamper myself on Cyber Monday and ordered these flannel/knit pajamas from Amazon. I am so happy that I did! They are the best pajamas I have had in years. They are warm, cozy and seem to run true to size with plenty of room to spare. They are well made. The pajama pants even have cuffs at the bottom and they have pockets! I am very pleased with my purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Step-by-Step Plan to Defuse the Stress in Your Life, July 24, 2012
BOOK REVIEW: STRESS PANDEMIC BY PAUL HULJICH
288 pages, Mwella Publishing
Release date: July 1, 2012

Note: I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher for purpose of review.

In today's world, it seems we are constantly under attack from stress from multiple sources. These stress points, allowed to continue unchecked; undermine our health in a variety of ways both mental and physical. This book has outlined very specifically, a plan by which we can not only reduce the stress in our life, but overcome it entirely; thereby improving our health vastly and adding years to our lifespan.

The author, Paul Huljich, had reached what most of us would consider the pinnacle of success as a very well-to-do business owner. What he failed to realize though, despite a tell tale sign here or there; was the dire toll that stress was taking on his health. He eventually reached the point of a complete breakdown and was ultimately diagnosed with stress-induced bipolar disorder by numerous medical professionals. This diagnosis carried with it a life-time sentence of multiple drugs and the prediction that he would have relapses from time to time throughout the years. The story of how Paul overcame his devastating, stress-induced mental illness and proved the medical professionals wrong is nothing short of amazing.

In this book Paul has outlined for all of us the nine specific steps he followed to eliminate stress from his life and to live a healthy life, both mentally and physically. While most people hide their present or past mental illnesses because of the stigma attached to those conditions, Paul has come forward in an effort to help others and to prevent them from experiencing the illness and collapse that devastated his life. This book is an integral tool and lesson that we can all use and learn from. I highly recommend it to everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book Review for Paula Takes a Risk, by Randi M. Sherman, July 17, 2012
BOOK REVIEW FOR PAULA TAKES A RISK
by RANDI M. SHERMAN
128 pages
Publisher: FriesenPress (January 30, 2012)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 1770971556
ISBN-13: 978-1770971554

Paula Takes A Risk is an enjoyable and quick read. At times hilarious and at times a tearjerker, this is a great book to take on the airplane with you or throw in your bag to take to the beach. It follows the boring and mundane existence of the not very adventurous or exciting Paula Tenenbaum. Paula thought she had life under control. She had a job she felt was secure and a boyfriend she thought might marry her. But then the bottom fell out of Paula's formerly stable world. One inconspicuous day, she first lost her job; and then her boyfriend broke up with her. This set Paula into a spiral of depression from which it seemed there was no escape.
Enter Larry--Paula's sleazy, irresponsible and conniving neighbor. Larry has a new "scheme" up his sleeve, and he figures he can use Paula to help him pull it off. Although Paula is hesitant to get involved, she ends up getting caught up in Larry's excitement and is drawn into Larry's web. After a period of time "living the high life" playing the part of a persona completely new and unfamiliar to her, Paula discovers that she really has become the character she has been portraying herself to be. Through this experience, Paula has become much more self confident, flashy and, generally speaking, just a more exciting person to be around.

Just as Paula accepts Larry for the scumbag he really is, and gets ready to branch off on her own putting her new-found self confidence to better use; the inevitable happens, and their scheme is exposed and quickly unravels. What will become of these two now? Will Paula be able to find a new niche in life, on her own? You won't want to put down this book until you find out what is to happen to our loveable, completely fallible heroine.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Account of a Journey to Discover a Unique Heritage, July 16, 2012
Book Review for: Cajun by Any Other Name: Recovering the Lost History of a Family- and a People;
by Marie Rundquist; 166 pages
Paperback
Publisher: Infinity Pub (February 17, 2012)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 074147042X
ISBN-13: 978-0741470423

Cajun by Any Other Name is a fascinating and detailed account of how a DNA test turned the author's perception of who she was upside down. In so doing, it sent her on a quest to unearth the details of her heritage--who her ancestors were, where they lived and the journeys they had to undertake that set the course for their descendants and who they came to be. This journey in search of her roots sent the author on several different trails, and covered thousands of miles. Along the way, she immersed herself into the cultures of her heritage, trying to come to terms with the vastly important links in her genealogy that had become "lost", albeit purposefully, in recent generations.

The author has done all of us a service in telling her story in such a compelling and well written way. This book should serve as the catalyst to spark an interest in genealogy and personal heritage in all who read it. It certainly had that effect on me! If money were no object, I would participate in a DNA test to identify my heritage at the soonest opportunity. The author heads just such an organization for those with suspected Cajun or Amerindian roots. The results are certainly not always what those participating expect nor do they always match the family-approved genealogies passed from one generation to the next. To me, that adds to the thrill of solving the mystery of just exactly what our heritage is and who our ancestors were.

Note: I would like to thank the author, the publisher and Netgalley for providing me a copy of this book for review purposes.
