5.0 out of 5 stars Great Quality Printer, March 17, 2002
The Hewlett Packard DeskJet 845C printer is a great buy for your money. First of all, you are buying a Hewlett packard product and that means one thing- quality. When you are printing in black and white and text documents the printer is very, very fast. When you are printing in color and are printing color pictures it takes the printer a bit longer to fulfill the task. Don't let this make you not want to buy the printer. The printer prints great quality pictures and the printed material has the quality of a manually taken snapshot.
The Hewlett Packard DeskJet 845C printer is my second HP printer and I am very happy with this. The printing quality can't be beat, the speed that the documents that you are printing doesn't take to long to print, and all in all this is a great buy moneywise. I recommend this printer to anybody that is looking for a very good quality printer that doesn't want to spend too much money. This printer will last for a longtime because it is built by Hewlett Packard. This is a great printer and I strongly recommend that you look into buying this. You'll be very glad that you did.
Happy Printing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutley Hysterical, March 8, 2002
"Rat Race" was a surprisingly good movie. The humor is nonstop as you are getting a laugh a minute and the great cast of characters chosen for this movie couldn't have been better.
The plot to his movie is hysterical by itself. A group of betters makes a bet to see which of the people in the "rat race" will get to Silver City and claim thier reward. Along the movie the characters get themselves into so many dumb things that just make you laugh out loud.
While many would say that this movie is stupid, it isn't. It is one of those comedies that you'll either love or you'll hate. This is humor that someone that would just sit back and let the movie play would enjoy. For someone that has to criticize everything about a movie should not watch this. This is a movie that could really get beat up but you should just watch it and enjoy.
"Rat Race" is a great comedy that no fan of comedy should miss. It has a great cast of characters, a hysterical plot, and so many jokes that you won't be able to count them. I strongly recommend that you BUY this movie because it is one you'll keep wanting to watch. Be sure to check this one out.
Happy Viewing!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Start, March 6, 2002
"The Fellowship of the Ring" is the start to what is probably the most loved epic fantasy series ever written. From the first pages when Bilbo Baggins makes his secret departure from Hobbiton, you are drawn in to this lush story. Tolkien tells a wonderful story and is able to do that while keeping the reader hooked from page 1.
"Fellowship" is the start of the trilogy, "The Lord of the Rings." In this first installment, Bilbo Baggins leaves Hobbiton and leaves The One Ring in the hands of his cousin, Frodo Baggins. When gandalf the Grey tells of brewing trouble the Hobbit says he's going to move to Buckland. He departs on a quest that will change his life forever. He takes along friends Sam, Merry, and Pippin. The hobbits finally reach Rivendell and an important counsel is held. This is the point in the book where the plot starts to skyrocket. To tell you any more on the plot would most likely ruin your reading.
Tolkien's detail on nature and history is astounding and only makes the novel even greater. He is always describing the surroundings and I just couldn't get enough of it. Some may not like this detail because they say Tolkien just drags on and on. This couldn't be furthur from the truth. His detail only adds to this beautiful story.
For those of you that are interested in reading this book because you loved the movie need to know what you are getting into. This is the start of one of the biggest and best fantasy epics of all time. Don't think that you're going to be opening a book that anybody can handle. That is not the case. Only people that are willing to make a commitment to a fabulous and sometimes complicated novel should buy this.
"The Fellowship of the Ring" is the start to what is most likely the best fantasy epic of our time. There is not enough that one could say about such a riveting novel. I strongly recommend this to anyone that is interested in a wonderful fantasy that is willing to make a commitment. The best thing about "The Fellowship of the Ring" is that there are two more novels that come right after it.
Happy Reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars All you'll ever need..., March 4, 2002
The Essential Billy Joel is probably the best Billy Joel CD that you can buy today. It has Billy Joel recordings from 1973 all the way up to 2001.
If you ever dreamed of owning Billy's greatest hits on 2 CD's, then you cannot go wrong with this. It has the classics like Piano Man, Captain Jack, to It's Still Rock and Roll to Me, to Uptown Girl, all the way to some fresh recordings done before the CD was released.
Now there are a few songs that die-hard fans will be wanting that are missing. Being a newcomer to Billy Joel and wanting the hits that I've heard and fell in love with, this was my best way to go.
So this Billy Joel CD is the best way to go from a fan starting back when Joel first came onto the scene to a music listener that has just found their love for this man's work. Keep in mind that there are a few songs missing that classic fans would want. This should not detract from your enjoyment of this CD, however. Purchase this great CD and you'll own a lifetime's worth of great hits to listen to.

1.0 out of 5 stars Piece of dung, March 2, 2002
I had wanted to own a laser for years and when I finally recieved mine it was the absolute worst. The quality of the laser was horrible, the batteries didn't work, and when I finally got them to work the laser light could only be seen if the laser was pointed a few inches from where you were pointing it at.
The heads that came with this device were dumb and served no purpose. I had the impression that the heads would have patterns of some sort and mine just showed the plain old dots.
Besides those technical things, the laser didn't look a thing like the picture.
All in all, this laser is not very good and is not recommended. I suggest that before purchasing a laser of your own that you see and play with it in person, make sure all of the features are correct, and the laser is of good quality. Buyer beware: This laser is a piece of dung!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Start to Discworld, February 24, 2002
In "The Color of Magic" Terry Pratchett weaves a tale of light fantasy and some humor to make a good read. Being the first in a series of over 25 books, I'm sure that this is probably not one of the best.
For one thing, his humor wasn't the greatest. He threw in some dumb punchlines but the really good humor wasn't as easy to find. Things such as his "Big Bang" theory were pretty good compared to some other dry stuff. Despite this Pratchett still did a good job in presenting a comical fantasy adventure.
The plot of this novel is pretty simple. Rincewind the Wizard (who graduated from Unseen University knowing no spells because one of the 8 Great spells trapped itself inside of him) meets the tourist Twoflower in a tavern. Twoflower hires Rincewind as his tourguide so he could see Discworld. After Twoflower sets the city of Ankh-Morpork on fire, he and Rincewind make a run for Quirm. Read on to find out the rest.
Pratchett's characters are the actual very funny part about the book. Rincewind is just...Rincewind; Twoflower has to see everything even if it means his existence on Discworld will be no more; the talking sword, Kring; Hrun the Barbarian who fights and has basically a dumb mind; and many other characters that we meet throughout thisnovel are just funny.
What is interesting about this book is that Terry Pratchett takes issues that have arised on Earth and puts them onto Discworld. These things make the world of Discworld seem even more like the one you and I are on right this very second.
In conclusion, "The Color of Magic" is a great read that a fantasy fan or somebody looking for a good book to enjoy. This novel is relatively short and can be read quickly. After reading this I am looking forward to reading more books about Terry Pratchett's Discworld. This is probably the best way to start out this series. Read this, you won't be disappointed.
Happy Reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars Reveals What a Blonde Really Is, February 21, 2002
This review is from: Legally Blonde (DVD)
"Legally Blonde" was one of the funniest movies of 2001. It is the story of Elle Woods and how she goes to Harvard Law School so she could get back together with her boyfriend. Beyond this, she ends up being there for a much better reason. (To find that out just watch the movie.)

Now let me go over the plot a little more. Elle Woods gets dumped by her boyfriend because he thinks that he needs a better girlfriend (to become a wife) if he is going to be a great senator. When she's dumped she decides that she must become a lawyer to get him back. After vigorous work to get into Harvard Law, she gets in and things take a turn for the worst.

Actress Reese Witherspoon basically makes the movie what it is. This beautiful, talented woman puts on a show that you won't forget. She truly plays the role of what many people would call an everyday blonde. She talks like a rich girl, acts like one, etcetera.
This movie reveals that blondes are not "dumb" and that they really are smart humans capable of doing what any other human with any other color hair can do.
The setting of Harvard University is great and the students and faculty chosen for the roles are great. Many actors that have already been in other popular movies reappear here for a light role.
I recommend "Legally Blonde" to anybody that wants to enjoy a funny movie with a good plot. Whether you are a blonde or not, this movie is a must. It reveals what a blonde female really is on the inside.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Book Available on Human Anantomy and Medical Terms, February 9, 2002
"Medical Terminology Made Incredibly Easy" is simply the best human anatomy book that you can buy. It covers all parts of the body, diseases, treatment for diseases, and history related to each part of the body.
This book covers every area of the human body from the nervous system, to the circulatory, to the vascular, lymphatic, and so on. It breaks down each function of every organ and system, and then goes furthur by stating which part os the organ does which. For example, it says that the heart pumps blood to the body. To go furthur, it may say that the aorta is the main artery which does that task. And so on.
The book also lists diseases for each part of the body and some treatments that are available for them. This book is great when it comes to pictures. It has color pictures, black and white, and tons of words with lines pointing to show where each part of an organ is. The book also has games to play at the end of each chapter to test what you've learned. Naturally, there are answers too.
"Medical Terminology Made Incredibly Easy" is the best of all of the human anatomy books that I've seen and read. It is very definitive and gives the information to you very easily. This book would be great for any medical school student that needs a little more help in human anatomy. this is one great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Source For Knee Information, February 9, 2002
Being a student and wanting to be a doctor, I read lots of medical books so I can gain a better understanding for anatomy and medicine.

In Dr. Scott's Knee Book, Dr. Scott writes as if he were on your level as to what you know about the human knee. He doesn't write like he's a big shot orthopaedic surgeon talking to incompetents. In his great book, Dr. Scott focuses on the anatomy of the knee, diseases and inhuries of the knee, and treatments for knee problems. He basically covers everything that somebody would want to know on the knee.

I recommend this handy book to a medical student, soembody that has knee problems, or anybody interested in the anatomy, treatment, and diagnosis of the knee. This is a great reference that should be in your home medical library.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Classic Novel of Revenge, February 6, 2002
In "The Count of Monte Cristo," Alexandre Dumas weaves a tale of love, revenge, intrigue and adventure to make one of the greatest novels ever written.
This story follows Edmond Dantes as he becomes the captain of the Pharaon and is going to marry the beautiful Mercedes. During his betrothal feast for his wedding, Dantes is arrested because he is thought to have been a follower of Napoloen. When Dantes think he is going to get put off the hook, he is sent to the Chateau d'If where he spends over a decade of his life in prison. When he meets Abbe Faria at the prison, his life is changed. He gets out and becomes the Count of Monte Cristo. And this is only the beginning!
"The Count of Monte Cristo" is one of the greatest books ever written. Dumas is a master at telling a great story and it really shows in this novel. I strongly recommend that every person that enjoys a good book read this.
