5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting, December 27, 2014
Another great novel in this series, impossible to put down. Not to be read late in the evening or the adrenaline rush will cause insomnia!

1.0 out of 5 stars Exploitative and Inaccurate, December 27, 2014
This review is from: Mandingo (Amazon Instant Video)
Horrible. I couldn't get through this film--its voyeuristic and sensationalist and very racist while pretending not to be. Its also not accurate historically--was made to titillate while pretending to be horrified at the abuses of slavery. If you want to see a film that accurately portrays slavery--and doesn't have to resort to cheap tricks to do it---then see "!2 Years a Slave," which is an honest and realistic portrayal of a real story, not some smut masquerading as historical truth. Even "Django Unchained," while an over the top revenge fantasy, is more honest than this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best one out there..., November 22, 2014
We have had this model of Vornado humidifiers for many years, 2 of them. We have also tried virtually everything else out there! The others have the following problems: either they are too noisy, break after a year, or have major mold/ick problems. When Vornado stopped making this model 2 or 3 years ago, we were not happy.

Yes, they are a bit tricky to fill. But if you keep a slow stream of water going, they fill just fine. I have a bad back so sometimes I just fill the tank halfway so its not too heavy/unwieldy.

We just got fed up with the downstairs humidifier (sounds like an airplane), and am thrilled to see that Vornado has started making this model again. We have found it to be the most reliable and quiet one out there. We buy the cheap aftermarket filters and change them once during the winter heating season, then toss them in the spring when heating season is over, and run the base through the dishwasher to clean it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work...., September 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It leaked, sadly. Our cat decided to pee on the bed and it soaked right through this pad. It was a LOT of pee (we were gone for a couple of days and she boycotted the litterbox) so perhaps it was the sheer volume that caused the failure, I'm not sure. Very disappointing.

An amazing film that everyone should see, but be sure to read the testimony as well, its fascinating and gives a much more detailed picture of what his life was like.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read, November 7, 2013
This book is really fun, and the poetry of Robert Burns quite a treat! The romance genre works surprisingly well as a contrast to the gorgeous lines of Burns that are cited throughout, and the plot is entertaining as well. I learned a lot about Scotland's most famous poet and his life, which makes any romance novel seem tame by comparison. The author did her research on Burns's life and that really comes through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great unscented laundry powder, May 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was using a liquid fragrance free detergent and then adding washing soda to it to make it work better (which it does). Lo and behold, I found out about Charlie's, which already contains washing soda. Does a great job, very gentle but effective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cat food, May 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Our cats like it and it has excellent quality ingredients. Only complaint is the size: very small pellets, so its easy for one of our cats who eats too fast to inhale it and then regurgitate. So we mix it half and half with life's abundance, another good quality dry food that comes in bigger pieces!

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun read!, May 12, 2013
This is the last of the trilogy of romance novels about musicians. The insider's information about what the life of a musician is like is entertaining. Of course this is in the romance genre, so happy endings and wildly successful careers are the norm! But not without some interesting twists and turns, and some "real life" challenges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, practical case, March 24, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a lovely and well-constructed case for the Iphone 5. The little strap that holds it closed is magnetized, and works like this: you open the wallet to use the phone, flipping the cover the other way, and then reverse the strap as well so it holds the cover out of the way while you use the phone. The cutout for the camera is perfectly situated. To install, you remove the plastic cover over the sticky stuff, check where the camera cutout is against the camera on the phone, line them up, press the phone down, and vila! the phone is very securely fastened. The color is a nice deepish red.
