2.0 out of 5 stars Way too complex for a kid under 40, December 5, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Very small, extremely difficult to put together, needs to be more age appropriate if marketed that way. Extremely disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't You Dare Miss Owning THIS Unique Paleo Cookbook, October 28, 2014
There have been a lot of great Paleo cookbooks to come out over the past few years as the meteoric rise in popularity of the real foods-based nutrition and lifestyle plan has seen it become more and more mainstream. With that greater attention has come a saturation of recipe books that claim to be Paleo, but they're not necessarily appropriate for everyone seeking to optimize their health. That's why I'm glad to see the Mediterranean Paleo Cooking book by Paleo nutrition expert Caitlin Weeks, her professional chef husband Nabil Boumrar, and perennial New York Times bestselling author of Practical Paleo Diane Sanfilippo.

If you are a fan of Diane's previous books, then you will NOT be disappointed in this book. These recipes are authentic to Nabil's homeland and pay homage to the cuisine that is native to that part of the world. You get such vivid photography and a wide variety of variations for people desiring to have nut-free, egg-free, low FODMAP, autoimmune protocol friendly, Specific Carbohydrate Diet/GAPS, and lower carb options throughout the pages of this book. I can assure you these kind of recipes cannot be found in any other Paleo cookbook out there on the market which makes this a unique book you don't want to dare miss owning. GET YOUR COPY TODAY!

4.0 out of 5 stars Get the coolest functions of Photoshop without Photoshop sticker shock, October 22, 2014
This review is from: Corel PaintShop Pro X7 (CD-ROM)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I got this Corel PaintShop Pro X7 hoping it would be a good alternative to Photoshop. I'll warn you that this is a pretty complex program and there is no way you could possibly list all the features included in it. But here are the most interesting ones:

BASIC FUNCTIONS
- This a highly functional photo processing software.
- It comes with lots of fun and practical built-in filters.
- You can crop, straighten, fix red eye, add text, convert to black and white or adjust colors/saturation

ADVANCED FUNCTIONS
- You can clone items
- Remove scratches and unwanted objects
- Apply special effects like time warp (to make photos look old)
- Selective Focus
- Distortion

This software allows you to apply layers which gives you the freedom to experiment with different looks and still keep your original image until you are ready to merge them. It also has a cool ability to add 3D effects, turn your photos into pencil drawings, paintings, and more. If you're looking for a program with similar functions to Photoshop but don't like the Photoshop price, this may fit the bill


Crayola Shadow FX Color Projector

4.0 out of 5 stars Would Probably Only Appeal To Younger Children In This Tech Savvy World We Live In, September 19, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Crayola Shadow FX Color Projector is pretty simple. It comes with a projector that lights up, a clear plastic panel and holder, 2 Mini Gel FX markers which write white, and one shadow shapes sheet which you can trace, copy or apply to the plastic panel. The recommended age is 6+, however I really think this would appeal more to younger children, maybe 3 or 4 to 8. Children are very tech savvy these days and this would not hold older children's interest for very long. Best results if used on light colored walls. The only downside would by that the clear screen is not elevated as the lights are which reduces the amount of playable space. Overall it's an engaging toy and works really well as a night light too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Huge Improvement From Previous My Little Pony Dolls, September 19, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The Aria Blaze and Sonata Dusk dolls seem to be a huge improvement from previous My Little Pony dolls. The arms and legs don't just pop off when you don't want them to and there's a whole lot more detail included with the fashion and overall look of each doll. These dolls have actual molded feet rather than the snap on shoes that were present on previous dolls, which makes fashion play a lot easier for my little girls. The wings are removable which makes swapping with the other winged characters easy and adds variety to play time

5.0 out of 5 stars How Do You Follow Up A Classic Health Book? Write Another One!, September 16, 2014
By this point, I'd find it hard to believe that there's anyone who hasn't at least heard of Milwaukee, WI-based cardiologist Dr. William Davis' runaway New York Times bestselling book released in 2011 called Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health. That singular book has played such an instrumental role in combating the message we continually hear from so-called health experts about the need to consume more "healthy whole grains" in our diet and people are waking up to the truth about how grains are destroying their health. Even those who aren't as deeply ingrained (all pun intended!) in the health community are aware of the powerful message Dr. Davis shared about in that book that is still having a major impact and touching the lives of countless numbers of people with more than a million copies of that instant classic in print and counting. But now he's back with even more compelling information that is sure to become a classic as well.

In his long-awaited 2014 follow-up book WHEAT BELLY TOTAL HEALTH, Dr. Davis applauds those who were able to successfully remove the wheat from their diet, but now encourages them to extend that dietary abstention to ALL grains and even most carbohydrates that are wreaking the most havoc on their health. That doesn't mean a no-carb diet (as the biased media likes to describe it), but rather a customized plan tailored towards the individual to figure out what level of the appropriate kinds of carbohydrates is right for them to keep their metabolic and hormonal health markers in check. And guess what? That's going to be different from person to person which is why this book shows you what things to be on the lookout for in your pursuit of optimizing your health. The idea that we are all a bunch of robots who need the exact same nutritional approach to health is long gone.

So what do you get from this new book that Dr. Davis didn't already share in WHEAT BELLY? Plenty! The book is broken up into three major parts:

Part 1: Dr. Davis explains the problem with consuming any grains in your diet (it's a far different grain today than it was in Biblical times), the unique and damaging role (to both the cows and the humans who consume the meat from those cows) that grains have played in "fattening" up the cattle, and why we should be gravitating towards making humanely-raised, grass-fed, grain-free cows and other animals as the primary sources of our healthy nutritional plan.

Part 2: You'll learn why going grain-free is more than just about getting rid of the belly, but rather about putting your health in the best possible position it can be. You get very practical advice on how to make this transition as smoothly as possible with tricks and tips that have helped so many of Dr. Davis' patients and readers. And expanding up what his neurologist colleague Dr. David Perlmutter shared in his 2013 New York Times bestselling book Grain Brain, Dr. Davis gives all the preventative measures in dealing with such neurodegenerative diseases as seizures, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease and well as many other quality of life issues. They're all related to nutrition which will be revelation to so many who read this book.

Part 3: This is where you get to the really good stuff in this book because you'll learn about the kind of damage all those years of consuming grains have had on your health and Dr. Davis helps you overcome and fully recover from what he describes as "Post-Traumatic Grain Gut Syndrome." When you do that, he explains the powerful therapeutic impact that will play on key blood health markers like cholesterol, blood sugar, inflammation and more. It's in this section that you learn about other things that can impact weight and health, including thyroid, endocrine function, autoimmune disease, and more. Plus, you won't want to miss what Dr. Davis has to share about those of you who are doing all the right things and yet you aren't seeing the weight come off (this chapter alone is worth the price of admission!).

Dr. Davis is one of the most articulate, smack-you-in-your-face-with-the-truth, and truly witty health personalities of our day and WHEAT BELLY TOTAL HEALTH puts that on full display for all the world to see. Reading through this book, I could tell the passion that Dr. Davis has for this subject is stronger than it's ever been before. He really stepped up his game to another level this time around with a bit more pep in his step as well as a greater sense of urgency than he did in WHEAT BELLY. The time is NOW to absorb information that is going to change your life and that's exactly what you'll get in this book.

I've used a lot of cases for my various iPhones over the years and this is hands down the best case I've ever owned.

Now, please, please, please make a cover for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. :)
