Aletheia, the Magic Butterfly

5.0 out of 5 stars Dispel Negativity by Turning Hate into Love, October 12, 2014
This book is full of beautiful colors and pictures, and is a treat to the imagination. It is very creative and so beautifully illustrated. The story begins with the creation of a new galaxy, ADHARA, with the planet ARK. Two rings of asteroids provided a shield for inhabitants and provided special powers of faith and love. But, alas, Uncle Dolos, was filled with hatred and envy, and gave the young prince a gift. The gift was a trick, to steal the planet's water supply from its people. Young Prince LAMED must now find the Flower of Life and right the wrong that was done to his people.

This is a beautiful story about dispelling negativity by transforming hate into love. 3-D artist Daniel B. Arroyo is one of the book's illustrators. This book is a treat to the eyes as well as to the soul.

I would say it is probably for ages 8 to 12, but can certainly be read to any age child.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very sharp stainless steel blade, October 12, 2014
Another inexpensive and useful emergency product from Muzitao, this little flat-folding knife can easily fit into your purse, pocket, or even a credit card slot in your wallet. The stainless steel knife blade is very sharp and sturdy. The polypropylene handle bends on fold lines to form a wrap-around handle. It is an emergency tool, and although the blade will probably last a very long time, the handle may only take a couple of bends. But, for the price, it seems to be an effective, easily carried emergency tool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Multipurpose self-defense and rope, October 12, 2014
Pretty nifty and inexpensive gadget. The Monkey Fist Key Chain has a nice heavy ball at the end, approximately 1 3/4 inches in diameter, on an approximate 6 inch braided rope chain. The total (together) length is about 8 1/2 inches (with a 6 foot length when unraveled, I believe). It has a nice swing, if you have to use it for self defense. It also contains an emergency cord, singed at the end to keep it from unraveling or fraying. Nice multipurpose device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy Fridge Magnet Metric Conversion Chart, October 12, 2014
Very nice idea, and a great inexpensive gift to put in a little kitchen giftbasket (along with kitchen utensils, teas, whatever). This is a 6 X 8 inch refrigerator magnet, and it won't get lost on the fridge. The print is also big enough to read :) It contains

-- temperature conversions F to C
-- weights ounce to pound to gram
-- the formulas for conversion
-- spoons to ml
-- cup ounce to grams
-- liquids gallons, quarts, pints, metric, cups, fluid ounce

It is full surface, stick to the fridge, and you can easily pluck it off the fridge to use, wipe your sticky fingerprints off, and replace it back on the fridge for next time.

Offered by NEON MART
Price: $23.50

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZINGLY bright !!!, October 12, 2014
This product is phenominal for the price. It has 3 settings (minimal, very bright, and flashing). Flashing would be to alert someone of your presence. The very bright setting is AMAZINGLY bright. (I took it outside on a dark light.) At this price, you can easily afford to stash some of these around the house for power outages, and also stash them in your emergency kits at home and at the office or in the car. Runs on 3 ordinary AAA batteries.

4.0 out of 5 stars Left Behind is "The Rapture". If you do not want to hear about God, walk away from this movie now...., October 12, 2014
This review is from: Left Behind (DVD)
I very much enjoyed this movie and I am hoping they continue with the rest of the story. This movie is based on the best seller "Left Behind" which I have never read. That said, I believe a movie should be able to stand on its own and this movie does. It is also a remake of the first installment of a 3 or 4 movie set, which begins with Left Behind. This group of movies begins with the Rapture, where those who believe in God are taken to Heaven so they do not have to endure the suffering in the final days of the devil's reign. In the Rapture, millions of believers disappear in the blink of an eye, leaving behind a pile of clothing, wedding rings, and any other earthly material possessions.

The story begins in New York, where Nicholas Cage is an airline pilot, about to celebrate his birthday. His daughter flies home to spend some time with dad on his special day, only to find out he was called to work unexpectedly. Relationships are strained between Mom and daughter because Mom is a bit pushy with her religious beliefs, and it makes folks uneasy, even her family. The daughter runs off to catch Dad before he leaves for London, and meets a famous author at the airport when she rescues him from another overbearing religious person who tries to argue her beliefs. The daughter sees Dad at the airport and also sees the flirty looks between Dad and a stewardess.

Cage is flying the plane when the Rapture happens and is about half-way to London. As you would expect, there is a tremendous amout of panic when children and adults just vanish "POOF"! This POOF happens all over the world, instantly, and leads the storyline into a disaster situation. Think about it....people just POOF away, whether they are driving a car, train, whatever....POOF....Your infant is in your arms....POOF...POOF...and more POOF. Shock/confusion/terror/grief...and finally, an attempt at analysis, while trying to deal with the ramifications of the events at hand.

As things begin to slightly calm down and we realize the Believers are the ones who disappeared, some folks begin to take another look at the lives they have been leading and the mistakes they have made, and look at the way ahead. It was a good movie and Cage does another great job.

As an addendum, I am not here to preach to anyone, and I am not an avid Bible reader. What you chose to believe is up to you. I am just quoting something from the Bible below for your added information. I felt compelled to do a little research after watching the movie.

Matthew 24: 36 - 42
"(36) As for the exact day or hour, no one knows it, neither the angels in Heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. (37) The coming of the Son of Man will repeat what happened in Noah's time. (38) In the days before the flood people eating and drinking, marrying and being married, right up to the day Noah entered the ark. (39) They were totally unconcerned until the flood came and destroyed them. So it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. (40) Two men will be out in the field; one will be taken and one will be left. Two women will be grinding meal; one will be taken and one will be left. (42) Stay awake, therefore! You cannot know the day your Lord is coming...."

4.0 out of 5 stars Luke Evans does a great job as the Prince, October 12, 2014
This review is from: Dracula Untold (DVD)
This was not the typical blood-sucking vampire movie. It was a story of a Prince who fought for many years of wars, to finally return home to his wfe, son, and the people of his kingdom, where he hoped to live out the remainder of his years (or at least the next 10) in peace. But, it was not to be....

Prince Vlad had been called Vlad the Impailer because his prior war methods included impailing the bodies of his victims to rot. Now times had changed and his army had apparently disbanded, with the exceptions of a few faithful soldiers. Believing he and his kingdom were now vulnerable, the Turks demanded more than he was willing to gift and "negotiations failed". In a last-ditch effort to save his family and his people, Vlad sought out some rather unorthodox methods to give him the edge.

There was lots of action, fighting, blood, and violence. Not for the children, in my opinion, although I saw one there.

In this version, Vlad was the Prince who became Dracula to save his people and his family. Luke Evans does a great job as the Prince.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ahhhhh....the smell of REAL leather!, October 3, 2014
Really nice! My Samsung Galaxy Note II (which is a larger phone) fits in here perfectly, and stays secure with the snap of the magnetic closure flap. The metal belt clip provides a snug and secure mount on a belt, or it fits nicely in a purse. The mount is slim and close to the case, so it does not get in your way in a purse. Everything is a slim and a perfect fit. Besides all that, it's real leather. Sniff sniff...I love the smell of real leather, especially when everything else around you is plastic and vinyl. The flap is an easy flip open, snap shut. The case also just feels good in your hand -- soft and smooth. Even the stitching gives it a classy well-made appearance. It's a WINNER!

My Note II is slightly less than 3 1/4 x 6 inches, and it fits perfectly, so you could go with a smaller phone too. The belt clip on this one does not rotate.

Made in the USA, like Bruce Springsteen would say.... :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful action movie -- glued to my seat!, October 2, 2014
This review is from: The Equalizer [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Denzel Washington does an outstanding job as Robert McCall, former CIA agent "the Company", whose wife's death took a lot out of him. So, although at the top of his game, he decided he was tied of killing. Now he is a simple man, traveling to work every day on the bus, to a Home Depot type store/job, and living in a plain, simple apartment. Determined never to go back to his prior way of life, he changes his mind when a young girl gets badly beaten by her pimp. Although he tries to negotiate a peaceful solution, the bad guys let their egos get in the way and the plot moves into high gear. There is a lot of bloody action as McCall struts his skills.

(I love the watch thing -- you will see what I mean.)

The former TV series, "The Equalizer" played by Robert Woodward, ended much too soon. If I remember correctly, this wonderful actor had some health problems and felt it best not to continue. Denzel does a great job of stepping up to the plate and portraying the cool and effective former agent who helps the little guy with pretty much impossible situations. I hope this is only the beginning of several movies. I think most people love to see the good guy win and the seriously bad guy get what he/she deserves, don't you?
