5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended Luxe Bidet, August 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Luxe Bidet Neo 180 is the *best gift* that I have ever given myself. I ordered this bidet in Feb. 2014 and I have been using it several times a day since then. I also ordered the metal T adapter along with it, although it does come with a plastic adapter. The unit is very easy to install in about 20 minutes. There is one silver lever to turn the water spray on and off. There is one dial with 3 settings: Women, Wash, and Clean. The spray on the "Women" setting has a longer reach than the spray on the "Wash" setting. The "Clean" setting is for self-cleaning the device. Both the lever and the dial are simple to operate and work very well. Water temperature is never an issue because the process is so very refreshing. I am prone to bouts of diarrhea due to gut issues. The Luxe Bidet lets me feel shower-fresh even during those difficult days. The product is very sturdy. There are screws to make it adjustable for the size of the toilet bowl. It is installed toward the rear of the toilet bowl, next to the tank and between the toilet set and bowl. It is a perfect fit in this location. A few other reviewers mentioned that the toilet seat may remain a bit raised after installation of the bidet. This has not been a problem for us at all. After a just a few uses, the toilet seat stays nicely down on top of the bidet. The water pressure at my home is perfect, we have never had to fiddle with any adjustments to the water pressure. After using this Luxe Bide for several times a day for 6 months, I can truthfully say that this is a wonderful product, it works as intended, it is well-made and trouble free. I have highly recommended this Luxe Bidet to other family members. This product has actually exceeded my expectations in all respects. I am continually grateful to have this convenience in my home at such a reasonable price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unsatisfactory results for an expensive cleaner, April 1, 2012
This review is from: Sokoff Pot & Pan Cleaner - Pint
Many years ago, I bought Sokoff to clean the oven racks of a very old house that we purchased as our first home. That oven likely was not cleaned in years and the racks had a thick coating of grease. Sokoff worked exceptionally well to easily remove the caked on grease from those oven racks. I recall that very little effort was needed to use Sokoff. At that time, I just put the Sokoff on the racks, put the racks into a large plastic bag and out came sparkling clean stainless steel racks. Fast forward to my new home and the first time cleaning new oven racks. I have two built in wall ovens, each oven has two racks. I use the top oven much more than the bottom oven so the top two oven racks were more soiled. The two racks on the bottom rack were very lightly soiled. This time when I used Sokoff, the results were a big disappointment. First of all, the smell of the product is terrible. It has a stench something like vomit. To my mind, the smell of this solution was so bad that I would actually prefer the odor of eye-stinging ammonia. It took me almost an hour to coat all four racks front and back with Sokoff, using a paint brush. The racks were left to sit with the solution on overnight. There was no instruction on the container that the items should be placed into a plastic bag. I let the racks sit on top of plastic garbage bags in the garage. The two oven racks that were lightly used came out okay. The two racks that were heavily used did not come out very clean. It took an ENORMOUS amount of scrubbing with a wire brush and cold water (per the instructions on the Sokoff container) to clean the two most heavily soiled racks. These two racks were maybe about 50% cleaner after all of the effort of manually scrubbing them with the wire brush/cold water. In the process, most of the shine of the stainless steel on these racks was removed. Now these two racks look dull, discolored and still somewhat grease stained.
PROS -- *if the oven rack is very lightly soiled, this product would probably work fine
CONS -- *foul odor of solution
*takes a long time to coat each oven rack front and back of each oven rack with the solution
*very labor intensive to scrub grease and Sokoff off with wire brush and cold water -- instructions on container do not match advertising RE: effort needed to clean
*can discolor and remove finish on stainless steel oven racks
*expensive at $18.99 for a pint
*hard to find
*heavy duty rubber gloves are a MUST when using this product, it started to burn through some light weight disposable gloves that I was wearing - fortunately, I had heavy weight gloves
The PRODUCT FEATURES on Amazon are misleading when it states that the product can simply be brushed on, left to sit and rinsed off, with no scrubbing.
The formulation of this product has definitely changed since I first used it years ago. It is not worth the effort and expense of using Sokoff in its present form to clean more heavily soiled stainless steel oven racks. It might work out alright for pots, pans, etc., but I have so far only used it on stainless steel oven racks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Timer, November 11, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AcuRite Digital Timer
This timer is good value for the money. I have been using it several times a day since it arrived. It is simple to operate. The minutes and seconds are very easy to see. The "start," "off" and "clear" buttons are easy to view and use. When the timer goes off at the end, it can be heard even if I am in another room. I am very pleased with this Amazon purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful little gown, great value for the price, October 28, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered this gown for the christening of my great-granddaughter. She is six months old and I chose the 6 month size. The garment is true to size. It fit her perfectly. I think she weighs close to 13 pounds. I liked the simplicity and understated elegance of this cotton christening gown. I am glad that I purchased this gown online from Amazon; it arrived in record time in pristine condition. It is a quality garment at a reasonable price. I was proud to give it as a gift to my little great-granddaughter. She looked like an angel in it.

The Roots of Obama's Rage

5.0 out of 5 stars Unmasking Obama's hidden agenda, his real meaning of change, October 28, 2010
"America is being run by a ghost," states author Dinesh D'Souza. Why would anyone make such an outrageous remark? The basis for such a statement lies in D'Souza's close examination and analysis of Barack Obama's own words in his two books Dreams From My Father and The Audacity of Hope. On a superficial level, Obama seems cool and articulate as he reads rousing speeches from his teleprompters. When intensive research is conducted on Obama's background, words and actions, -- a totally different picture appears. The research is riveting: this is a most disturbing psychological profile of the man who currently occupies the oval office.

The use of the preposition "from" in the title of Obama's first book is significant. The absentee father of BHO impressed him to the extent that he has literally internalized the aspirations of this long dead role model. What kind of person was this powerful role model? Pages 64 - 67 describe him in excruciating detail -- polygamist, abusive husband, neglectful father, alcoholic. The one shred of dignity in this man's life was his dream of the building up of Africa as an independent nation. He considered foreign presence or influence as the chief obstacle to his dream. He believed "colonialism" was a grave injustice. Here is a succinct explanation of this quaint term "colonialism:" the powerful nations of the West had invaded and occupied less developed countries to exploit the native population and steal their natural resources. Barack Sr. was a strong proponent of "anti-colonialism," that is, all efforts to repel the colonizers at any cost.

European nations have been historically judged as guilty of colonialism. But who is the current colonial bogeyman? The description on page 31 points to the United States as the world's worst exploiter of less developed countries and their indigenous population.

Who is the superman who HOPES to CHANGE this rogue, exploitative country, to dismantle its great overreaching powers, so that never again will the USA have the capacity to invade/occupy a less developed country? The American people elected this person as president in 2008, to our detriment.

How did we end up with a president who seeks to undermine the country that elected him? Because that leader, a consummate politician and driven ideologue, has honed his image to the extent that many Americans fail to see his inherent rage and true intentions behind his carefully cultivated mask. That rage is exposed in this book. It is a truly scary portrait of Obama, our president.

Obama's unconventional childhood led to much angst over his identity. During his formative years, his mother regularly inspired him with tales of his biological father's great political vision. Although Obama Sr. was a drunkard who consistently abandoned and neglected all his wives and children, this mother and son shared some sort of strange hero worship of him.

As a young adult, Obama claims to have had an eerie mystical experience while sitting on his father's grave in Kenya. He formulated a plan for his life: to continue his father's fight against anti-colonialism.

Obama's ego is too big to be confined in the office of POTUS. He sees his role on the world stage as the great leveler. Obama strongly believes that America should be compelled cut back on its own consumption and share its wealth with less developed nations. Obama's idea of change is to fundamentally restructure America; to bring the financial institutions, military, industries, including healthcare, much more firmly under federal government dominance. Then the dismantling of America will proceed in earnest. No more superpower status for us. BHO's carefully concealed goal is to weaken America to the extent that it is unable to maintain its current role as the last remaining "colonial" power. In Obama's view, that should make the world a better place.

Obama's mantra of change is certainly far different from what Americans thought they voted for in 2008. D'Souza has examined just about everything there is to know thus far about BHO. In this book, D'Souza reveals the bait and switch tactics of our young president. At every opportunity, Obama is quick to seize the high ground on any topic. He feigns an air of moral superiority while his real meaning is obscured by lofty-sounding rhetoric. Read these examples from page 31: Obama "cannot say he hates the rich, so he has to talk about fairness and equality. He cannot say that America is a nuclear menace to the world, so he has to say that he wants a nuclear free world. He cannot say that he thinks Wall Street is evil, so he must accuse the investment firms of not looking out the interests of Main Street." Do you recognize these constant themes in Obama's speeches? This is BHO double-speak at its best, concealing his real intentions to reduce America's strength and standing in the world. The very idea of American exceptionalism is offensive to him.

There is plenty of evidence in this book to show that Obama is no friend of America. Here are just a few examples: his continuing criticism of America during speeches given on foreign soil; his sharp criticism of what he considers America's bloated oil consumption - this during the BP oil spill; his insistence on shutting down offshore oil drilling in the region and subsequent loss of American jobs - while approving 2 billon dollars in loans and guarantees to Brazil for the same type of offshore drilling, provided the oil stays in Brazil; directing NASA to focus on an esteem building program for Muslims; long term friendship and collaboration with those who have publicly denounced America as an oppressive, hateful country, such as the incendiary preacher Rev. Jeremiah Wright and unrepentant domestic terrorist Bill Ayers,to name only two of many others. This book shows that, privately, Obama shares has plenty of common ground with persons of this ilk, despite his public repudiation of their counter-culture actions and rants.

If you still think that BHO actually cares about the average American on Main Street, you need to read this book. It's a easy read, just as if D'Souza was talking to you in everyday conversation. You will learn how America is indeed being run by ghost. Let the exorcism begin with the November 2010 elections; there is still time to choose between the American Dream or the dreams from a long-dead Luo tribesman from Kenya.

5.0 out of 5 stars great little steamer, August 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this item after reading the reviews for several different kinds of steamers. This little steamer gadget steams vegetables very nicely. It fits into both skillets and pots. Just add about an inch of water underneath it, place the veggies on top, and cover the skillet or pot with a lid. In about 10 - 20 minutes (depending on which vegetable you are steaming) you will have fresh, delicious cooked vegetables. The little tabs on the side help to lift it out of the skillet without burning your fingers. Clean up is fast and easy. There is no need to worry about residue left behind to taint the next batch of vegetables. If you want to try steaming vegetables, this is a good product to buy for easy of use and low cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better tasting mashed potatoes, August 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I noticed that several professional chefs recommend this product for their mashed potatoes. I decided to give it a try. I have been very pleasantly surprised at the results. It is easy to use, just insert several potatoes, put the top part over the potatoes and clamp the handles together. This process needs to be repeated several times, depending on the size of your batch of cooked potatoes. The whole thing is in one piece and it goes into the dishwasher for easy clean up. Potatoes that are put through this ricer come out nice and fluffy. I have been able to cut down on the salt, butter and milk when my potatoes are put through this ricer. The potatoes even seem to taste better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective for adults, August 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have used this product for several years. My skin tends to be on the oily side and prone to breakouts. The skin of adults is not as thick as teenage skin. OTC products to control teenage skin problems tend to be too harsh for adult skin, for example, any product with benzoyl peroxide will actually burn my skin. This product is gentle enough to use every day on adult skin. It absorbs oil nicely and helps to protect against breakouts due to oily adult skin. I have not been able to find Clearasil ADULT Acne Treatment in any drugstore locally, so I always buy it on from the Amazon website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty, informative, entertaining, August 24, 2010
This review is from: The Obama Diaries (Hardcover)
Laura Ingraham has pulled back the curtains on No Drama Obama to reveal that there is plenty of drama being stage-crafted 24/7 by the current administration. Satire, in the form of fictional diary entries, purportedly written by key players in the Obama administration, is a relatively small part of this book. The narrative portions cover events that actually happened, hence the NON-FICTION designation.

The satirical diary entries are hilarious and believable because they flow naturally from the REAL words and actions of all the key players. It's entirely plausible that those who are currently running our country actually think this way.

Ms. Ingraham presents many cogent points in this book RE: the Obama presidency. The media marketing of Obama began with what she terms the Razzle Dazzle effect -- the glitzy packaging that was likely the main reason behind his election. Laura Ingraham peels back the layers behind the Razzle Dazzle to reveal the personalities behind the hype. For example, guess who might have Narcissistic Personality Disorder? The compelling revelations begin on page 264.

On page 253, there is a description of the night Obama received the Democratic nomination for the presidency. His soaring rhetoric included the remarks, " . . . This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal." Obama actively cultivated this messianic imagery throughout his presidential campaign. Ask yourself what type of person would think that his political candidacy had any kind of effect on the movement of the oceans or the "healing" of the planet? This is alarming.

The non-fiction narratives reveal that every action of the Obamas has been choreographed for maximum political effect. For example, the First Lady's vegetable garden was planted to grow much more than just veggies. This little vegetable patch launched the "Green Razzle Dazzle." Seeds were planted here to establish Michelle as a policy advocate for healthier living. Next came her anti-obesity campaign for America's children. Michelle is not only the gardener-in-chief, she has promoted herself as an authority on our health and nutrition. What fertile ground for the germination of - OBAMACARE! Think the FLOTUS likes REAL gardening? Go behind the scenes and read about the heavy-lifting efforts by National Park Service employees to plant, maintain and keep the vegetables in this garden viable for all the photo-ops.

This book is a journey well beyond the Razzle Dazzle fluff created by the White House handlers of the President and First Lady. Laura Ingraham has courageously connected the dots surrounding the personality cult of Obama. The narratives collected and arranged in this one book are like pieces of a puzzle. The puzzle, even with some pieces missing or concealed on purpose, presents a disturbing picture of the leader of the free world and his minions. The author offers concrete suggestions that any citizen can do to counteract the dire situation facing our country. There's a lot of information packed into this entertaining book -- it's a great read for any thinking person.
