5.0 out of 5 stars Great Product., April 23, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This fits perfectly on the counter under my cupboards. This has a nice clean look with the black and silver colors.

Despite the smaller size, this does not have a feel of cheap or easy to break. There are rubber feet on the bottom of this that prevents it from 'walking' off your counter. It is a little bit loud, that is you are not going to be on the phone and using this at the same time. But it sure speeds up the work you are doing.

There is a self contained chopping bowl that has a small balde that whirs around inside to chop items up. It also comes with a salad shooter top. The salad shooter top comes with two different blades for smaller gratings and choppings and larger gratings and choppings. These are reversable so you can chop on one side and then grate on the other. Two pieces that does the job of four- great! It also comes with a pusher that pulls apart for ease of use with different types of things that you want to slice/grate etc. There are directions and they are easy to read and understand as well. However, this is really very intuitive to use.

As I have three older children who like to cook and often have younger children visiting who I like to cook with- I'm grateful that you can not use this without the lid being in the locked position. You will not easily get little fingers inside this thing to get mangled while it is working. Even as you feed food into the tube, the tube is long enough you won't easily hurt yourself.

I have used this for several different items. One of the things I tried was to grind up my dried green chile. I put it into the self contained bowl and let it whirl away. I wanted this chopped up to almost a powder. This little chopper did a great job. It gave me the almost powdered dried green chile that I was trying to achieve and must faster than me smashing it in a bag as I have done previously.

The salad shooter will make a mess. It does not come out as cleanly as the pictures show it coming out. Different types of food will come out differently so you might adjust the bowl for carrots and then have to readjust it for cabbage and then again for something else. And even with the bowl adjusting, you will have little sliced food pieces around your counter. Our solution was to use a taller bowl.

I have a larger food processor for larger jobs (for example, grating a lot of cheese to freeze, or cooking for a crowd etc). This is perfect for a family though. I am looking forward to years of use with this thing.

This is so pretty.
The red glass color and the shape of it reminds me of antique depression era glass. The red flowers on the metal base are cute and add to the look of a nice, classy hummingbird feeder.

The glass came well wrapped and unbroken through the mail. The glass is heavy and the metal parts do not seem to easily bend. It has the feel of a high quality hummingbird feeder.

I am excited to hang it out now that spring is coming and see if the hummingbirds find it outside my kitchen window.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pretty color., April 23, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I think the color shown on my computer screen matches the color of napkins I recieved fairly closely. These are a cheery apple green color.

These are larger than normal napkins. The larger size will cover your lap if you use them as napkins.

Mostly mine have been used as centers for tables to add a bit of color over white table clothes for a variety of events so they haven't had to be washed very often. It seems that they hold up well though to normal use.

Be warned though- they are cotton and you might feel the need to press them after you wash and dry them.

Well worth the money. Enjoy.

How to Live with Yourself
How to Live with Yourself

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Advice and funny too., April 23, 2016
Dr Banks has the kidn of advice we need in this day and age.
He writes with a good sense of humor yet he is very clear about what you need to do in order to live with yourself.

These books are not difficult to read and they do not take a long time to read. In fact the copy I have took me about 20-30 minutes to read.

The advice though sprinkled with funny snippets and stories is well worth reading. Dr. Banks writes about taking stock of yourself and looking at your weaknesses and strengths. He also talks about using humor and learning about how to get along with others. There is more and it's worth reading for yourself. I have suggested to my children that they read these books as well.

That is the most important thing to know about this show. It is very boring.
The narrator is speaking in a monotone. It sounds like the videos we used to watch in school in the 70's.

What keeps this from being a zero or one star rating is that it has some great footage of old planes.

This is a more complicated version of Flow Free with an extra step that is required to solve the puzzle. This isa pretty fun logic based game for people who had completed flow free and want an extra challenge.

I've been playing for a while and find this an addicting game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A puzzle and it's fun., April 14, 2016
This review is from: Flow Free (App)
This is a very fun, logic based game. You are trying to fille very square on a grid by making connections between colored dots. The orange dot to the orange dot, the yellow dot to the yellow dot and never a line can cross over the other. I really enjoy this game. There are plenty of puzzles to solve on various sized grids. Once you've solved the all you can even solve them again. If you want there are daily puzzles. There are some in app purchases that you can make, but you don't need to.

This review is from: Smash Hit (App)
This game is fun. you are zooming through a hall filled with glass. You must smash glass by throwing marbles at it prior to running into the glass. If you run into the glass you lose a portion of your marbles. The further you get in the game the faster the game goes. The goal is to get as far as you can without running into glass or running out of marbles. It is an addictive game.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I love love love these. These will most likely be my new go to earrings.

I have looked closely and do not see glue where the pearls match the silver. They are well set and do not seem to be easy to dislodge.
The pearls are the same size and match each other perfectly in size and color. I have tried to bend the silver and it does not bend.
Additionally, these are heavier than I anticipated.

They came in a lovely box with blue paper inside and black outside. They sat on a black velvet square.

I really think these are lovely. Each time I've worn them I've recieved compliments.
Worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Family Fun., April 12, 2016
Family Friendly Movies are far and few between. This is a true family friendly movie. It is not gruesom with blood and guts, there are not swear words used or even poor substitution of swear words and there is not the gratuitis sex scene thrown in.

The plot centers around Mickey whose Grandfather has died and left him a special stone. During the course of the movie he meets other seniors who were friends of his grandfather. They help him figure out the solution to the puzzle.

This movie takes a turn towards the science fiction when you learn at the end they are putting together a machine that turns anything into silver.
We thought that just added to the fun.
