This review is from: The Blue Max (DVD)
A classic. Although the picture is a little grainy on a HD LCD this movie is worth having. I especially enjoyed the flying scenes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than some other colors --- check the weight, March 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Stronger than some of the other colors: notice the weight. The bottom is a tiny bit thicker. I bought a blue tray about 5 years ago. This year, it started to bow when I put something hot on it. This causes the plate to slide around crashing into things: it was a near miss.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While functionally correct, these shields are hard and will eventually break. Go with the softer shields.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product., March 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great product. They can be maneuvered to slide down the 'temples' (legs on a hinge) to easily fit into an enlarged case for my safety glasses. The only short-coming is that they must be coaxed to the lense edge to make a good seal.

Formerly, I had the heavy plastic and the connections to the 'temples' broke easily and the shields became wobbly. Soft is better.

The Living Great Lakes: Searching for the Heart of the Inland Seas
The Living Great Lakes: Searching for the Heart of the Inland Seas
by Jerry Dennis
Edition: Paperback
Price: $12.72

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stories of the Great Inland Sea., March 14, 2015
A great collection of stories of the Great Lakes. Being a native Michigander I enjoyed the author's stories immensely. Here's a sampling:
'"It's just something I had to do," he said. "I don't know why. I don't know how I did it. But I think most people in that situation would have done the same thing. We lived, we got very lucky. But it breaks my heart that twenty-nine other guys weren't so lucky."
Superior is merciless. That night everyone in the museum knew it to the depths of their souls. John Luftkins will wonder all his life why it took mercy on him.
(John Luftkin recounted his own survival story on Superior the day the Edmond Fitzgerald sank (nearby) near Whitefish Bay. He saved his son, cousin and nephew that night when they went out fishing and things went bad.)

If this brief excerpt inspires you to buy the book good. I think you will enjoy it. Please add your vote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent war picture, March 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Lost Battalion (DVD)
The Lost Battalion is an untold story of WWI. Schroder is magnificent as the leader of a battalion of toughs from New York who held the Germans at bay for almost a week. Just like other A&E movies, e.g., "The Crossing," "The Lost Battalion" is a masterpiece.

Pinzon Basics Micro Bead Medium Density Therapy Pillow with Cover
Pinzon Basics Micro Bead Medium Density Therapy Pillow with Cover

5.0 out of 5 stars Only pillow for me., March 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A micro bead pillow is the only kind I will use from now on. Ordinary pillows quickly collapse allowing neck strain. The micro beads, after worn in for several weeks, provide just enough resistance.

I bought one 3 years ago. At first it was hard as clay. After several weeks, I softened it. I bought a second one and am training it for my head slowly while I rely on the old one. Really, I don't know why I put up with morning neck strain.

It comes with its own cover but add a second one to keep the pillow fresh.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saved my back, March 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When I strained my back in December I noticed, more than usual, that my office chair was torturing me. I installed this support system and can work comfortably. Later, when I left the position, I found it fits most chairs. It fits awkwardly on my secretary chair in the office at home but works well enough to be useful.

One word of caution. Get used to adjusting it every so often and when you first sit down. You will want to make sure the orientation is as shown in the picture.

Installing it is easier if you learn a few tricks:
1. Install the top sling and one the arm slings first over the top of the chair.
2. Tighten slightly.
3. Pull the other, loose, sling in place and clip it.
4. Tighten all slings to align.

Take care with the clips that you don't break them by forcing the male piece into the female piece. It helps to pinch the male piece so that they glide into the female.

Within a few hours, my back felt much better. I was using a cane for 3 weeks.

Apparently, the makers have added zippers to the pads allowing them to be replaced when compressed in place or aged.

If I were to improve this support it would be by adding an adjustable vertical strip of plastic to set the pads in place.
