5.0 out of 5 stars Great Kitchen Towel, March 30, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Assuming aesthtics are not your primary concern (though it looks and feels like quality), this All Clad Textiles offering is an amazing kitchen towel. Other colors are available. It's just the right size for me, long and not too small. I love the textured ribs as well, exspecially for wiping a countertop. It sucks up a lot of moisture and is just all-in-all a very effective towel. The cotton weave is easy to wash and has yet to show any wear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Tweener Bottie, March 27, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
AVENT makes great products for little ones and this trainer cup is no exception. It is an excellent trainer cup to transition from bottle to sippy cup. The handles allow your little one to securly hold it and the nipple keeps things from spilling. The clear case is great to see what and how much is in there, and to help make sure it is thoroughly cleaned. Speaking of which, the parts dissasemble easily for thorough cleaning.

Montana Decoy 0050 Miss Purr-fect Hunting Decoy
Montana Decoy 0050 Miss Purr-fect Hunting Decoy

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Full disclosure here.
I'm not a hunter, but I am a South FL resident looking for an alternative to the generic pink flamingo in my front yard. You might consider adding the Papa Strutt Decoy to the mix as well.

Time will tell how well it holds up outside, but it isn't intended for long term outdoor exposure. I've acutally seen turkeys in the wild, and this decoy looks pretty convincing. The construction and materials are good, but the best thing is the way it collapses like a Japanese lantern with just the head sticking out. The "legs" are detachable - helpful for a variety of poses. I think it lives up to the price it commands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Travel Became His Endorphin, March 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As a boy, author Rinker Buck spent his summers traveling in a covered wagon. His eccentric father wanted his children to experience rugged travel and the benefits of seeing life at a slower pace. This childhood experience seeped deeply into Rinker's veins. The need to travel and "escape" always occupied a place in his subconscious. A natural adventurer, Mr. Buck piloted planes, road motorcycles and pursued a career in writing. Though his voyaging spirit was temporarily waylaid by such challenges as a job, a family and a divorce, the desire to travel West was never far from his heart. When the opportunity to "escape" out West presented itself, Mr. Buck made plans to travel at mule team pace.

Mr. Buck chronicles his journey with infectious wit and pragmatic delivery. His voice is delightful, entertaining and informative. Aside from actually taking the journey oneself, what better way to experience the nuances of history than by reading the passionate words of a hardcore enthusiast. The book is packed with information about how the land he traversed was once used and populated. Figments of broken dreams dotting the land like a discarded carcass illustrate just how transient life can be. Full of grit and soul, the author's story reveal to us a wonderful slice of Americana: the varied people, places, scenery and all the lessons and travails (accidents, mishaps) in between. "In the vast West, the sensation of being lost usually arrives long after you are lost". You will never feel lost reading this book. Added note: If you are a fan of young adult writer Gary Paulson, you should enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Nearly Perfect Hair Brush, March 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
For those searching for a comfortable hair brush that feels good both to the scalp and hair, this is the one for you. The wooden handled-ergonomic design is light but sturdy. Unlike wire brushes, the acrylic bristles will not damage hair while blow drying. It provides an excellent flow of air through the hollow center making for more efficient, effective styling. I base this off my wife's use of it since I don't blow-dry my short hair.

The lightness of the brush makes styling easier than the heavier, more cumbersome bristle brushes currently on the market. It looks and feels well made with a copper-appearing ring dividing the nicely designed wooden handle from the bristle head. The handle itself is concave and tapers at the end, which I find a very comfortable grip during use. The design also lends itself to working well with hair that tangles, brushing through more easily than one that has more closely set bristles. At this price point, I don't see how you can find a better brush.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yummy and Healthy, March 26, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The dogs like it anyway. ;)
I debated whether or not to drop a star for the near fifty dollar price, but decided to anyway. There is other good dog food available for substantially less. That said, this is quality dry food and it seems even picky pooches will eat it. Even those that don't normally go for a fish based blend, both large and small breeds. But they seem fine with it here, and I can't fault the quality of the ingredients. It also seems to fill them up a tad more than an equal amount of more economy food. The pull top is easy to open, but a velcro reclosure would be nice at this price point. If you want to treat your dog to one of the healthiest, nutritious and tastiest dry blends available, then you should at least try Purina ONE's SmartBlend.

Fantasic leads. They draw smoothly and fit well into the pencil's they are designed for. I'm not sure how the diamond aspect factors in, but you get a smooth clean mark with these, and they are not as easy to break as some.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just ...WOW!, March 23, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I grill weekly, and often have to deal with flare-ups, food sticking to the metal or falling through and other issues when using a standard grill. These grilling sheets eliminate those problems and the first time I using them I made the moisted, most tender and flavorful chicken breasts I've ever cooked on a grill. These should be awesome with veggies and eggs as well, I can't wait to try that. I'll use it with my next steaks too, since that is usually what causes the flare-ups. On the upside, the meat also had a nicely chared exteriror (with marks) so you can tell it was grilled. I left the sheet one while the grill cooled and this morning the leftover stuff from the meal crumbled right off. I'm also glad that are top drawer dishwasher safe, but it is easy enough to just rinse off in the sink. Loving this product so far and I hope it holds up. It reminds me a bit of the mats you can put at the bottom of your oven to help collect spills and keep the surface clean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Set, March 22, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have a decent tool collection and a lot of bits for my various drills and impact drivers. This IRWIN set could easily become my favorite, especially for the intended us with of concrete applications. The build quality is top-notch and for the couple of times I've used it to go though concrete and stucco, it has done so easily. IRWIN's carbide tips really bite into concrete and create a with an ease other tips I've used can't quite match. The control collar is great for efficiently getting a screw into the hole you've drilled. The case is great so that I can keep all of the parts together and just throw it into my large toolkit or a drawer.

The 1881131 set isn't exactly cheap, but it isn't overpriced for the quality you get either. If these are tool you'll use at least a few times a year, then it is worth the investment because they should last a lifetime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top-Notch!, March 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My wife loves a quality laundry detergent. She is the cleaning maven of the house and knows her stuff! Her previous favorite was Dreft, but this might supplant it. A little of this cleans a full load and leaves a fresh clean scent. It appears to have have kid friendly ingredients too so that you won't have any irritiation after washing. The clothes do seem to rinse cleanly and smell great right from the washer and after air drying. No real scent mind you, just -- clean.

B3X and Dreft are now our go too detergents. They work well for pretty much all clothing needs, not just washing childrens' clothes. Babyganics costs a bit more, but is concentrated and does a great job. Worth getting if it is in your budget.
