5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative story for young adults, July 20, 2013
Stone Secrets is an original breakout novel by Jordon Scott. I tells of the adventures of Kaia and her older brother Aiden. Kaia lives at home with her alcoholic mother and longs for freedom. This freedom comes to her soon after her mother falls down the stairs. Kaia and Aiden are sent to live with their Aunt Betha in Ireland. There, Kaia meets Finn, an elusive mystery boy. It turns out that there's more than meets the eye to Finn, Aiden, and even Kaia! Together, they travel on a fantastic adventure across Ireland and beyond the realm of life itself. There's enough action to keep the pages turning, but more important, the author introduces a great deal of imaginative settings and characters. The book closes with a cliffhanger, and I'm eager to read the sequel to find out what happens next.

3.0 out of 5 stars Problem with mounting, July 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Unless you can mount this in a stud, I suspect the unit will eventually loosen and damage your cabinet. This is because it only mounts on one end. It ships with HUGE wood screws to try to overcome this, but they are far too long and big to mount to the bottom side of a cabinet. You can buy smaller screws, but again, they're likely to loosen over time. I ended up returning this and getting a counter top model.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality, July 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After using the same Wal Mart cupcake pans for probably a decade, we decided to really splurge and get a set of USA pans. All I can say is that they are superb. They cook evenly, are heavy gauge, and wash well. Yes, they're expensive, but I figure once every ten years is worth a splurge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, and the magnets are a plus, July 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These measuring cups are made of a durable plastic, and they have magnets in their handles to stay together. The only negative is that they only come in four sizes. A couple of additional sizes would have been welcome.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Sak Iris Tote (Apparel)
My wife bought this to replace a small keychain wallet that she'd been using for years. She's used it for a couple of months now and has really enjoyed it. Her iphone 5 fits perfectly in the side (even with a cover on it). It's large enough for daily carry of credit cards, money, and her phone. Keys attach to the side ring. All in all, very compact and well made.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My ten year old daughter likes these earring. They're cute and not too big. However, one of the posts wasn't cut smoothly, and we had to file it down because it felt jagged. Overall, okay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for quick wiping of screens, July 17, 2013
I like the Toddy Gear Microfiber cloth because it is easy to stuff in the pocket of my camera case. I use it for a wide assortment of things, including wiping the camera lens, cleaning the iphone of grease and fingerprints, and polishing my wife's ipad screen. All in all a useful and attractive product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever and Functional, July 17, 2013
The Toddy Gear Wedge Stand is a clever and functional device. Not only does it serve as a handy (and safe) place to sit your iphone on your desk, it also does an outstanding job of cleaning the screen. My wife uses mine for her ipad and laptop screens as well. Very soft and large enough to clean quickly. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to be something here, July 13, 2013
While I'm always skeptical about health food supplements, Garcinia Cambogia (a.k.a. HCA) does indeed seem to offer some weight loss benefits. In an 8-week double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of 60 overweight individuals, use of HCA at a dose of 440 mg 3 times daily produced significant weight loss as compared to placebo. A different study showed less pronounced benefits, but clearly there is something here. It appears to work by increasing the recipient's metabolism, which can have other benefits as well as weight loss. I think this product is worth a try. As always, there is no silver bullet. You have to combine it with a healthy diet and regular exercise -- something we should all focus on anyway.

This particular product came well packaged and sealed with a tamper proof seal. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Guide, July 11, 2013
If you're a classic game enthusiast or simply have ever been interested in game consoles, Kevin Baker's "The Ultimate Guide to Classic Game Consoles" is right up your alley. In this 235 page book, Kevin does an outstanding job of covering almost 100 different game consoles from 1972 to 2000 (five generations of consoles). There is a color photo with each console to make the description more complete.

My personal favorite was the Atari 2600, which was the first console I can remember my family owning. It was something like $200 at the time, which was incredibly expensive. To its credit, it let us play Space Invaders, Pac Man, Warlords, and Moon Patrol.

The book not only discusses the different types and models of consoles, it also talks about where to find them, how to haggle for the best deal, things to watch out for, and how to store them. One thing I found particularly useful was his recommendation to look for misspellings of the game names on eBay. I've found a few great bargains just because the person listing the item misspelled it.

Kevin's history of electronic gaming was fascinating. As a NASA engineer who is constantly surrounded with electronics, I was surprised by how well he presented the history of game development. Of course, most of us geeks remember playing pong until late in the night. Actually, I think that the sounds from that game are permanently ingrained in my mind.

The book itself is written both with careful attention to detail and a bit of humor. For example, I liked this:

"When most people think of a stereotypical classic game console collector, images of geeky middle-aged men dressed up as Darth Vader behind closed doors,
fencing with their dog using a fake light sabre and speaking fluent Vulcan spring to mind."

My friends were speaking fluent Klingon, but still, point taken!

I can't recommend this book highly enough for those interested in learning more about classic game consoles. It is well written and extremely informative.
