Gifts & Decor Nantucket Home White Bathroom Wall Shelf Towel Holder
Gifts & Decor Nantucket Home White Bathroom Wall Shelf Towel Holder
Offered by Tom & Co.
Price: $33.00
32 used & new from $25.50

5.0 out of 5 stars A very nice, sturdy "assemble it yourself" piece., August 29, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I may be inclined to deduct 1/2 star because of the time it took me to assemble it. I say this mostly for the benefit of those who believe they will slap it together and mount it in 15 minutes. I'm an old hand with assembling Ikea stuff, and for its size, this took as long as larger pieces, especially if you are working alone.

But, this is a superior example of a self-assembled piece. All the materials are of a high quality, and since it is relatively small, the parts fit together to form a very sturdy piece. I like it so much, I am ordering a second, to put on the opposite wall, in order that the two sides match.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could not be more pleased., August 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The print on the tee was perfect for a cat lover, perhaps even better than what was depicted on the picture. The colors were strong and the face of the cat did indeed fill the entire front of the tee. The size was good, compared to other tees I've bought with that size. Now, I'm hoping it survives laundering with little shrinkage or fading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Respectable recorder for kids., August 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This instrument will never be great for playing Bach or Dufay, but as a cheap instrument to hand out to kids, it is hard to beat. This is especially true since it comes with the swab to dry out the tube, which will teach kids that the spittle that goes in when you play it does not simply disappear. You must get rid of it to treat the instrument right. What I like most is that it is shaped like a wooden recorder, so if a kid wants to graduate to the real thing, it will seem like less of a jump, and the old plastic one may still be used for serious practice. And, it is cheap enough to give away to classes, once in a while.


Mid-East Mini Kinnor Harp, Light
Mid-East Mini Kinnor Harp, Light

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for demonstrations, not so hot for playing., August 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mid-East Mini Kinnor Harp, Light
I confess I found all of the problems others have noted about tuning in their reviews. I'm not even sure it has the right strings. However, I had no intention of actually playing this Harp. What I wanted was something which was a reasonable facsimile to the kind of harp the young biblical David may have played, and use it that way in a demonstration. For that purpose, it is a solidly constructed instrument with a decent canvas carrying case. Good enough for kids to see and understand.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only a toy. Not good for even teaching how to blow the Shofar., August 15, 2014
I gave this two stars primarily because it is a pure toy, which does not even sound like a Shofar, because it has its own built-in reed in place of forming the resonance by your own embouchure. I would have given it an extra star if, in spite of the reed, it sounded like a Rams horn Shofar, but it is entirely too small to create a tenor, let alone a baritone range tone. The only saving grace is that it appears to be made of genuine ram's horn.

ErgoTek 1 26"

5.0 out of 5 stars It works., August 2, 2014
This review is from: ErgoTek 1 26"
My mother got extended reach tools when she was in rehab, and I find they are more versatile that the kind with two identical fingers which come together in the middle. The little knob on the nose is a magnet. I've never found a use for that, but it's good for hooking onto things and dragging them out from under beds, chests, and whatever. I got two. One for each floor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works as promised., August 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Yes, this holder does virtually everything as advertised, although it came close to failing with a rather small diameter arm, but it held in the end on the rubberized handle of the dust brush. Installation was relatively easy, if you are adept at marking and drilling. It calls for five screws, but I think three will hold it up quite nicely. It looks attractive, so it is no eyesore in my hallway off the living room, next to the bathroom.


20" Extendable Metal Back Scratcher Portable Travel Size
20" Extendable Metal Back Scratcher Portable Travel Size
Offered by Collectors Paradise (US SELLER)
Price: $4.99
5 used & new from $3.50

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor showing, even for travel., August 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These fail on several counts, even if one allows some lee-way as a "travelling" device. First, the prongs are not bent over enough (fixable with a needle nosed pliers). Second, the prongs are too sharp compared to those nice wooden / bamboo back scratchers. Third, the extension arm does not stay put. As you push up on the arm, it starts to retract in its handle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice substitute for fly paper., August 2, 2014
This has all the virtues of fly paper, and few of the drawbacks. I have two, and they have been especially effective in lowering the number of house flies which buzz me as I work They are easy to hang, and there is no need to fuss with unravelling sticky paper. If I were to suggest any improvement, it would be to make a stronger hook and hook line, connecting the hook to the body.


A Treatise of Human Nature (Penguin Classics)
A Treatise of Human Nature (Penguin Classics)
Price: $6.13

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful version of the Treatise on Kindle. Accept no substitutes., August 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It would be impudent for me to review one of the five greatest classics in the history of philosophy, so I shall limit myself to this book on Kindle, which I consider to be a great success. It has everything you really need. It has a two level active Table of Contents (Upper level is very general sections, such as Introduction and the three Books. Lower level includes all the Parts, and sections within those parts, just as Hume wrote them.) The Search facility works quite well except that, as usual, a search may bring up only a hundred returns, and the way to refine the search is crude.
