5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Beautiful! Barry with just his piano. . ., April 19, 2014
This review is from: Night Songs (Audio CD)
This is a wonderful album, and quite different from other Manilow albums where the music was the "heavy". This CD is just Barry and his piano. The music is on the order of what you might hear is a cocktail bar, in the evening. I think the cover fits the music. Some songs have a show-tune sound to them. I actually have been playing the heck out of this CD since I got it. The music is soft, sexy, and beautiful, conjuring up the cocktail bar image.

I love ALL the songs, every last one of them! But I have to say that my favorite is "Here's That Rainy Day". That song just haunts me. I often hit the repeat button 2 or 3 times everytime the CD gets to this song. Next, I love "It Amazes Me" - a song about an ordinary guy, who is amazed when he looks at himself through his girl's eyes. She sees him in ways he could never imagine. Another is the old "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive" -- just because it tells us to stay with the positive and eliminate the negative. These are simple words, but critically important. Negative thought and negative people will BRING YOU DOWN! All the other songs follow in beauty.

I love Barry's music so much. He sings with all his heart and that beauty just comes out in his music. This is another wonderful album from the Manilow Master Musik Maker.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's It Like In Heaven? Do you believe?, April 19, 2014
The movie begins with a young girl, on the other side of the world, painting a picture of an eye. You will find out what that means in the end.

This movie is a WONDERFUL heartwarming story of a young 4-year old boy who has an out-of-body experience. While in critical condition, on the operating table from a ruptured appendix, young Coulton goes to Heaven, spends time with Jesus, is sung to by angels, and meets some folks he never knew. The movie also hints at the power of prayer, when a large group of town people come together and pray. When Coulton is out of danger and back home, he begins to speak of his experiences. Coulton is so at peace, and so without fear.

The movie is also a test of faith for the folks in the small town of Imperial Nebraska, Who really wants to believe in a young boy's story? Watch as some folks' faith is challenged.

Greg Kinnear is perfect for the role of Pastor Todd Burpa. Ralph Haden Church, as Jay Wilkins, is the local banker and Todd's friend. Because this is obviously a small town community, both Todd and Jay are co-involved in other town activities.

I thoroughly enjoyed the film and I highly recommend it. It is a beautiful and deeply touching story. (Bring a few kleenex because it touches your heart and soul.) I plan to purchase the DVD for my collection. I have not yet read the book but I will now!

This movie is allegedly based on the true story of the Burpa family. I can tell you that my brother had a NDE during a serious operation. As someone who did not normally believe in the "unseen," the NDE was a big surprise for him. It took him about 2 months before he was ready to share it with me. I also have a musician friend who had an NDE, and the music he plays sounds like it came right out of Heaven.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cardiovascualr Health and Circulation, April 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have been pleased with "Jarrow" products. Red Yeast Rice was recommended to me by a friend, along with a customized vitamin regime. This particular product includes Natto Extract 100mg, nattokinase 2000 FU, Red Yeasr Rice 1200 mg for a 2 capsule serving size. There are 60 capsules, which are easy to swallow. This formula is said to support cardiovascular health and healthy circulation.

As with certain other vitamins, the lable mentions the product contains a chemical known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm, so it is not recommended for pregnant women or those trying to conceive. The bottle also warns to consult with your doctor if using blood thinners or blood clotting meds, have a medical condition, or are under the age of 18.

As with any vitamin or herbal product, you should check with your doctor before taking. Depending on any condition you might have, or any medicines you might be taking, certain products could react adversely or interfere with medications. That said, I also suggest folks do some reading on their own. There is a wealth of information available on the internet, on sites such as webmd, and many other locations.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Scented Gardenia and White Tea Essence Bar Soap, April 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a nice soap and carries a heavy scent, the scent of gardenia and white tea essence. The package says it is made in the USA and comes from Unilever in Connecticut. The actual bar measures approximately 3 1/4 long X 2 1/4 wide X 1" deep. This is a soap for someone who likes to smell like they just came out of the shower. If you like that perfume like smell, you should like this soap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Miracle-Grow is a Respected Name, April 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a sizeable product, about 10 inches in height, in a sturdy plastic container. It comes with the respected Miracle-Grow name. The yellow plastic cap can be screwed off. (I put a plastic spoon inside my jug so I can sprinkle on indoor plants). If using outside, the top flips open so you can easily pour out a kind-of spout. Inside is a little pellet-like and chiblet food mix. The back of the container provides directions and suggested amounts (e.g. 6 inch container gets 1 1/4 tsp for outside plants or 1/4 tsp for indoor plants). This is an "all purpose" food, and is a "continuous release" food, feeding for up to 3 months.

Although I have just started to use it, I have always been pleased with Miracle Grow, and I believe this product will work well. Net weight is 4.5 pounds/2.04kg

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the same al-dente Barilla, April 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Barilla pasta is my favorite, so I thought I would try the Gluten Free brand, for those of you who cannot tolerate gluten (like my girlfriend). I found the gluten-free to have the same firmness that distinguishes the regular Barilla from the other pasta brands. The taste is good (pasta doesn't really have any taste without something on it). It tasted the same to me as regular Barilla.

Ingredients are listed (in this order) as: corn flour, rice flour, mono and diglycerides. No wheat products. Produced in a dedicated gluten free facility. It is a product of Italy and distributed by Barilla in Illinois. This 12 oz (340g) package is certified Gluten Free. No trans fat, no cholesterol, no sodium. Total carbs are 44g, with 1g dietary fiber and 0g sugars. Has 4g protein in a 200 calorie 2oz serving (about 6 servings per box).

Barilla advertizes recipe ideas at the website ( and also states their Barilla pasta sauce is gluten free.

Of particular interest to you, besides knowing it does not lose anything in taste, should be that this product comes from a dedicated gluten free facility. If you have Celiac Disease, that is important, as my girlfriend explained. In a facility that is not dedicated to gluten free products, your product could be contaminated with gluten residue. That could be enough to set you off in pain. Should be no problems here, with a dedicated facility.

4.0 out of 5 stars Biblical Story with Hollywood Twist, March 31, 2014
This review is from: Noah (Amazon Instant Video)
My son and I really enjoyed the movie, but it was not biblically correct, and that will probably make some folks very angry--so I tell you that up front. . .

The movie follows the basic story of Noah and the Ark, where most of civilization is evil and God decides to flood the earth and start over. He assigns Noah the task of building a huge ark, sufficient to withstand the flood (biblically 40 days and nights) and to house a male and female of every earth creature, so when it's all over, the earth's inhabitants can re-populate the earth. The part of Noah is played well by veteran actor Russell Crowe. Sir Anthony Hopkins plays a small sporatic role as Noah's father. The chief bad guy is a very familiar bad-guy, I just can't recall his name.

Outside of the biblical story are some fallen angels that God turned into rocks and they move like Transformers. Although they were cool to watch, they distract from a religious-based movie. Another outside story is that Noah becomes obsessive about what additional things he THINKS God wants and I really wish they had not gone that way. There is one more event that does not seem possible it could happen in 40 days, but I will let you figure out what that is as you watch.

All things considered, my son and I enjoyed the movie. The visual graphics were well done. The acting was good, and the movie kept me glued to my seat. Obviously, everything turned out well in the end (because I am here to write this review and you are here to read it.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Sammy the Painted Turtle Loves Them, March 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Another spoiled rotten pet, Sammy is a nice-size aquatic turtle that my son has. Although I understand aquatic turtles are supposed to eat mainly veggies, Sammy doesn't seem to have read the turtle book. She has quite a personality and DEMANDS Fluker's Freeze Dried River Shrimp. This is the ONLY brand she will eat. They are a nice size, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soft and Chewy w/apple and peanut flavor, March 2, 2014
Tippy the Pampered Poodle loves them. The large, firm plastic container in front of me right now has 8 twistie sticks, each about 7 1/4 inches in length. You can very easily tear the sticks into smaller pieces if you prefer (or if you have a small dog). The label says they are fortified with 15 vitamins and minerals, including iron, copper, manganese, zinc, iodine, selenium, vitamins A, D, E, B12, riboflavin, niacin, and folic acid. They are distributed by Del Monte Pet Products of San Francisco, California.
