5.0 out of 5 stars Good, deep sleep, November 4, 2007
I wanted to try it so bought it locally (though the Amazon price is very good for 3).
Sleep is deep but not so deep as to be groggy in the morning. Pleasant dreaming, though non-sensical. Also not so deep as to not wake up during the night when turning over, etc. All in all, I'm happy to have given it a try.
Found it, along with Ginko biloba, recommended for tinnitus. Supposed to increase blood circulation. The relief for that is minor so far, but I've only been taking it for a week. There have been a couple of very quiet periods, but other times, just as usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Looking Accurate watch, September 29, 2007
This watch is attractive, keeps time well, is easy to read. Even at dusk, if there's any light at all, the light-colored hands make it easy to read the time. The band locks shut so it won't open; the release mechanism needs to be squeezed from both sides for extra protection. Super pleased!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable riding boots, September 8, 2007
We both wear these boots when we ride motor scooters. After wearing all day, they are still comfortable by evening that I don't think about taking them off before doing a grocery shop. Great boot for being on one's feet all day.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad screenplay, bad directing, bad acting, August 5, 2007
This review is from: The Women of Brewster Place (DVD)
Women of Brewster Place by Gloria Naylor is a powerful, wonderfully written book. I admire Oprah Winfrey for what she's done in the media - and getting people to read. But this is just a stilted mess, with one scene jerking into the next, no character development ... really a disappointment. The acting is flat; no affect - As if saying the lines and raising eyebrows is enough.
Not enought fleshing out of the characters to be able to relate to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cleans and conditions with a light rosemary scent, July 24, 2007
This shampoo/conditioner combination leaves hair feeling very silky. My hair is very fine but lots of it. The aroma is not overpowering as in many shampoos and rosemary is very pleasant. My guess is the scent doesn't have to be strong to cover up the chemicals that are used in most other shampoos/conditioners. All in all, very satisfied. Oh, my hair is the natural color but a reviewer of another of the Giovanni shampoos said his mother loves this combo and her hair is dyed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile toaster oven, July 23, 2007
Food tastes much better reheated on the stovetop or in the oven than in a microwave. The texture is better too.
This convection oven heats food faster than the oven in the stove and doesn't throw off as much heat so that it's usable in the summer.

Opening the door pulls out the attached rack, making it easy to remove hot food. Wrapping food that splatters in aluminum foil helps keep the oven clean. Heating pizza (fresh or frozen) is fast and the crust comes out tasting good.

The red color is also a plus!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, July 22, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The first book in this trilogy was an engaging and thoughtful thriller, a what-if change in history. The 2nd and 3rd parts after Christ clone veer more towards preaching without the hook of a good novel. Too bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm & funny series, July 22, 2007
This review is from: My Uncle Silas - Series 2 (DVD)
Watching the 2nd season without having watched the first is not a problem. It might have been nice to have had the intro's of getting to know the characters, but each episode stands nicely on its own ... linked short stories. Finney has a wider range than I'd realized; the whole cast is wonderful together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dries hair quickly, April 15, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
With below the shoulder hair, I found this to dry it quickly and without burning. I have fine, thick hair so usually it takes 10 minutes or more to dry ... and other dryers run so hot that they burn if focused in one spot for more than a moment (to set a wave, for instance). This gets just hot enough to be safe and pleasant to use.

The finger-attachment might be useful if someone else is styling your hair, but my arms (I'm 5'9") aren't long enough to make its use practicable.

Two speeds, two heat settings (plus cold-shot button) actually give a very usable range for drying efficiently. Took me less time than with my previous dryer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Series, April 12, 2007
This review is from: Cracker - Series 2 (DVD)
From BBC,another terrific series. As good as Prime Suspect, it's about the on-going core characters - all with their own psychological quirks, strengths and weaknesses as well as the crimes they need to solve.

Great acting, writing. Suspenseful.

Now waiting for series 3, 1 & 2 are definately keepers!
