1.0 out of 5 stars 9-day wonder [not], November 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
bought this because it had the best stars - well, it DIED in nine days, and while alive, the cord was stiff and awkward. the mouse did not 'flow' smoothly. have to realize that although the manufacturer's name stays the same, in these days of out-sourcing and get-it-made-in-the-cheapest-way possible, my mouse might not have been made in the same factory/country as so many of those mice [mouses?] rated five stars! fortunately, amazon has a great return policy so back it went - and i have just hooked up my new "AmazonBasics 3-Button USB Wired Mouse (Black)" - which, tho a prime item and promised to arrive in two days, didn't - it arrived in ONE day! well, it moves smooth-as-silk and is $ CHEAPER. I'll go enter a five-star review on it - as soon as i know that it works longer than 9 days ! ;-)

2.0 out of 5 stars cheap, November 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Levi's Men's Reely (Apparel)
i already wrote a review, but amazon is asking for another? this is a really cheap, thin, mediocre, knit top, the caliber you'd expect to find in that little section of clothes the dollar stores sell. mr levi must be rolling over in his grave. it even came with a snag/catch about an inch to the left of the buttons - so very visible. ironically, it didn't matter, as the shirt looks 'well worn' even tho brand-new. i should have returned it, but just was too... you know. sigh.

1.0 out of 5 stars yuck, November 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i wrote a review of this product, but now amazon is requesting another? wonder what happened to my first? anyway, i love oats, i love crunchy puffy cereals, i live anything maple, and i love the less-sweetened cereals found in the natural foods store. so, now you know, if these things were edible, i would have stuck a bunch of stars on my review. i can't believe the quaker oats testers put this crap on the market! the very-little bit of 'flavor' is about as maple-like as chewing on a tree-twig... in other words, non-existent with a hint of yuck. trust me - this is not going to be in the quaker line-up for long...

5.0 out of 5 stars thinking outside the box, November 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i ordered this tape to replace damaged spines on a number of hardcover books i own [that had their covers removed]. the look is good, the additional rigidity is helpful, and i have been able to add the books' titles to the spines. couldn't be happier. it is perfect for this purpose. i knew it would be, as i had previously ordere a half-inch tape to 'edge' some plywood kitchen cabinet doors i made. the look is perfect, the tape applied easily, and has remained in place. perfect all around.

Sorry, haven't read this book yet, but in trying to find out about its contents, i discovered the following from "4 Enoch: The Online Encyclopedia of Second Temple Judaism (Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Origins)International Research, Scholarship, and Fiction, from the 15th century to the present"

well, here is what they have:

4.0 out of 5 stars i like it., October 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you are looking for a way to trim the edges o home-made plywood kitchen cabinet doors, here is the solution.. You'd never know the tape was there, it goes on very easy, and STAYS on. And i have a heck of a lot left over, so if it DOES come off, I'll just cut another strip.

5.0 out of 5 stars so far so cuddly, September 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
as it is still hot outside, i've just slipped into my new slippers once and they felt devine [i wear a size nine shoe, and the large fits perfectly, by the way]; they are soft and cuddly, seem as if they'll keep my feet warm [i live wear the snows do fly] but as its a knit, i don't expect they'll overheat. they appear well-made, and have a padded footprint with a rubber sole [well plastic, but you know what i mean] tho i'll not go outside in them, i feel confident they'll hug my floors well and i'll not slip. i bought two pair and gave one to my friend. she slipped them on to see if they'd fit and her face broke out into a big smile. and that just about sums them up!

5.0 out of 5 stars oooh those little grey cells!, August 23, 2013
I have spent the last month binging on the first six seasons of Poirot [free with Prime] and am now re-watching them from the beginning and enjoying every minute of the experience. Ahhh the eye candy! Art Deco - glam ladies and gents in high fashion 1930's London [and trips out and about to seashore, Europe, Lake Country, etc] All is perfectly framed gorgeous scenery and sets - tho the sets are on-location - always with the Art Deco streamlined crisp clean, opulent sophistication . yum. Oh - the mysteries themselves? Clever, always successfully entertaining - the primary characters are perfect in their parts, and each individual personality remains constant thru all the seasons [acting is superb, by the way, hard to pull off, as its all really a bit silly over-the-top camp thirties], David Suchet is some kind of genious / artist to pull of Poirot with all his supercilious egotistical, mincing perfectionism - Well, the whole thing is a gently played tongue-in-cheek running-jokes comedy... Such a great show! And yes, Mssr. Poirot's "little grey cells" come through time and time again - explaining to all the answer to the Great Murder Mystery [or whatever] of the Moment ... [have I effused enthusiasm enough to whet your interest? Magnifique!
