4.0 out of 5 stars Good Probiotic Supplement, December 24, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
There are times when our day to day diet doesn't allow us to get quite all of the things we need to be at optimum health. Thus the market for supplements. I've taken liquid probiotics in the past, along with the usual yogurt based ones, and feel they do help with digestion, health and fighting illness. Metamucil's easy-to-swallow offering isn't overly special in that regard, but it gets the job done. I had some "grumbly tummy" (to quote a certain bear) before taking these and afer a few days of use that pretty much cleared up. Trips to the bathroom are efficient, and I feel pretty good overall. I would say that if you want a probiotic in capsule format, then this is a viable choice. And perhaps it is a good idea as added insurance during cold and flu season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Collection Of Inspiration, December 19, 2014
Do someone you care about a favor and give them them gift of 'Naked Determiniation' this holiday season. Even if they are not dealing with fear, these stories are inspirational. Author Gisela Hausmann really reaches out and touches you with her thoughts and words, not an easy accomplishment into today's 'surfacy' world. The overall gist of her stories are to get out there and "carpe diem". They are truly motivational on a deeper level than you might expect. Actions speak louder than words, so act now and get a copy of these 'words'. for somebody you care about, or for yourself. It is hard to pick a favorite tale -- I enjoyed them all.

I received a complimentary copy for objective review purposes.

Stayfree Maxi Pads Super, 66 Count
Stayfree Maxi Pads Super, 66 Count
Offered by ProCount, Inc.
Price: $24.35

4.0 out of 5 stars Staying Free, December 19, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I'll be honest. I got these for my wife and have not personally tried the Stayfree Maxi's. I'm not sure how I could test them. I did use one to buff some wax off my car and it worked as well as a microfiber cloth, but aside from that, I have *NO* real personal experience. However, my wife likes them, as much as you can like a product that is somewhat forced upon you.

They are fairly priced, fit comfortably for extended amounts of time, and work well for their intended purpose (paraphrasing). While this package might not get one through a year, it comes close. Mild scent, and not irritating. Aunt Flo, you've met your match.

4.0 out of 5 stars CHOW Down!, December 18, 2014
A bit overpriced online, but if you want a quick salty, starchy fix, this ramen noon from Nissin is a decent one. Not the healthiest meal, but a good comfort food. Fairly simple to prepare, and ready to eat after about 8 minutes (cooling time included).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Wetness Detector, December 18, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
While not all children have bedwetting issues, one of mine did. This looses a star because it is a cord attached system which may not work with kids that are tossers and turners. That said, it works. It wakes the child up when something happens and helps reinforce the fact that they need to hold it in until they can use the potty. This product might not be for everyone, but for parents of "serial" bedwetters, it can be a godsend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Treasure, December 18, 2014
This review is from: The Imaginary (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This edition is one you should be proud to display in your library for years to come. Not only that, the story and art in book is captivating. I think it would be a great gift for a literate child of 8 years or older, as well as adults that collect fine children's books. Have no doubt, this is one of the better illustrated children's books to be published in recent years. It does have definite Maurice Sendak vibe, but also a bit of Dr. Suess whimsy. But it is it's own animal and should delight readers both young and old. Harrold has outdone himself writing this, and Emily Gravett really steps up the the plate with the illustrations.

Native Union Gripster Wrap iPad 234 -  GRIPWRAP-BLK-MATT  - Black Matt
Native Union Gripster Wrap iPad 234 - GRIPWRAP-BLK-MATT - Black Matt
Price: $49.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Best All Round Case, December 17, 2014
The Native Union Gripster Wrap is the go-to case for my iPad. Why go for the Gripster? I'd have to say it is primarily for its excellent grip/stand. The stand is part of a very durable case that fits over the back of your iPad. It is well designed, holds it securely, and the camera and ports are not interfered with. The stand/handle is quite sturdy and adjustable, and is great for propping up your iPad Mini at a variety of angles. It may slide a bit on a slick surface, but is otherwise nicely grippy so that normal touch on the screen won't cause it to move. You can even bend the handle out 180˚ to carry it like a mini briefcase. The center elastic band is great for holding it though I rarely use it.

The foldable innovative cover is similar to Apple's design. It protects the screen nicely and has the feature that puts your iPad to sleep when closed. You have to manually fold it to get it out of the way of the camera which I have gotten used to. I only takes a few seconds. The cover isn't simple to attach, as this must be done while putting on the back using little tabs at the edge of the cover. But once it is done is stay secure. Overall it isn't too obtrusive, and does protect the screen nicely while putting the iPad in sleep mode when rolled down over the screen. I wish it didn't leave lightly visible streaks on the screen, but that goes away over time (no longer an issue).

You get what you pay for here with this durable, versitile case. It is verstile, slim & attractive, has the best stand of any case I've tested, and has the useful rotating handle for carrying. There are other great cases out there, but this is the one I'm using the most. It may not offer as much protection as some other cases, but it works for me. If you want a drop resistant case, check out the URBAN ARMOR GEAR Folio Case. It's great, though doesn't have as nice a stand.

3.0 out of 5 stars Classy Looking Padfolio That Could Be Better, December 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The AT-A-GLANCE Meeting/Planner Padfolio is an attractive black "leather-like" accessory that will look good in any business meeting. It is useful as well, coming with 50 refillable, graph paper sheets that are easy to date and organize any info written down. There is a pocket on the left for loose papers or other matrials, but it doesn't hold as much as I would like. I also wish there were additional smaller pockets to hold business cards and the like, and perhpas a pen holder. It is priced fairly, but you can get a more versatile organizer for a little more money. For those looking for a little more utility for a little less moolah, I recommend the Mead Cambridge Limited Refillable Notebook Cover).

The YP218-28 also feels a bit too flexible and can "squirm" a little when writing unless you lay it on a flat surface. If your primary goal is to this use it for organized note taking and too look professional while doing so, then this may be worth considering.

SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop - Glow In The Dark
SKLZ Pro Mini Basketball Hoop - Glow In The Dark
Price: $30.59

5.0 out of 5 stars A Slam Dunk!, December 16, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My little basketball player loves this. After some quick and easy assembly, the sturdy, well-made backboard fits securely over the top of her bedroom door, though I needed to use some felt padding to fit it more snugly. It is a toy that begs to be continually playing with, and if I had it in my office at work, I'd probably be tossing the ball at the hoop all day long. The net, backboard and ball do glow, but play is limited in total dark because things are still hard to see. I don't recommend a multiplayer game at night, especially in a room that is already crowded with other toys. It's great for the novelty value though. This would make a fun gift to just about anyone of any age who likes to test their basketball skills indoors.

Campbell's Soup for Easy Cooking, Creamy Roasted Garlic, 14.5 Ounce (Pack of 8)
Campbell's Soup for Easy Cooking, Creamy Roasted Garlic, 14.5 Ounce (Pack of 8)
Price: $17.53

4.0 out of 5 stars Creamy Roasted Garlic Soup, December 16, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Like all Campbell's creamy soups, Creamy Roasted Garlic relys heavily on salt for flavor. There is no denying the garlicy aspect of this one though. I made a small batch of baked fresh string beans with fried onion topping last night and doused them with about half of the container. The meal came out tasting really good though again, a bit salty. For making baked dishes, these Easy Cooking packages from Campbell's can really be a time saver. If I had to make a creamy garlic broth, the meal would have easily taken at least another half hour to prepare. Homemade is best, but this is a handy substitute.
