Crazy in Paradise (Paradise Florida Keys Mystery Series Book 1)
Crazy in Paradise (Paradise Florida Keys Mystery Series Book 1)
Price: $2.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Crazy grammar, January 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The plot was fine, but the writer's grammar drove me to distraction. Also, she mistook Calvary for the cavalry coming to the rescue. She needs a better editor.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disaster asters, October 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These asters were purchased last fall, and were said to be hardy in our Zone 5. Almost all of our other alpine plants survived the winter and returned for another year of bloom. However, these asters were never seen again in our rock garden.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bring back the view finder!, October 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Because I wanted more optical zoom, I upgraded from a Canon Powershot A1100IS with 4X to the SX150IS with 12X. I am very happy with it with two exceptions. It does not have a view finder like the older camera, which makes it difficult to take pictures in the sun. Also, there is a new red button which instantly turns on movie mode. Unfortunately, the red button is in the spot where I place my thumb, so I have movies of trees standing still. Except for these problems, I think it is an excellent camera for the price and takes photos that are as good as the ones from my husband's $800 Canon SLR camera.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really gold?, June 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This well packaged plant arrived just 3 days after it was ordered. However, the plant label is much larger than the plant itself. For almost $10, I expect a more mature plant instead of a 2 inch baby. Perhaps it is actually gold...

This was purchased for my grandson's 10th birthday. He loved it and immediately built several of the things in the booklet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp pictures, February 14, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This replaced an older Canon PowerShot. I purchased it despite bad reviews about picture sharpness. As I guessed, the problem was caused by the photographer's not pressing the button half way to focus and then all the way to shoot the picture. The extended zoom photos are much sharper than those taken by my previous camera. The image stabilizer is an additional help when zooming out. This is one of the few digital camera which still has an optical view finder, which is important when taking photos in the bright sunlight when you cannot see the picture on the LCD screen. Also, it is about half the size of the older model and cost half as much. It uses AA batteries, not expensive batteries that fit only the one camera.

4.0 out of 5 stars Longer charging time, September 25, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This grass and weed trimmer works well and can be handled by a woman with arthritis. My only complaint is that it takes an hour to charge, even with the lithium-ion battery. I like the edger feature.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too complicated!, August 3, 2009

This replaced an old-fashioned altimeter, which worked every time with no fuss. My husband has yet to get the altimeter part of this to work.
