New Balance Men's Vazee Pace Running Shoe
New Balance Men's Vazee Pace Running Shoe
Price: $109.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Light an Airy, July 30, 2015
This reviewer's other pair of New Balance measure 10 EEEE. This new pair of New Balance is an 11D and though much narrower than the other pair are beginning to stretch nicely and fit comfortably. This is one of the lightest pair of shoes I've ever owned and could have been named Air New Balance.,

The shoe feels good on the feet, and getting better, and have excellent traction with the design of the sole. I like the design of the shoe and the large reflective N which adds safety to night walking. The shoestrings are color coordinated and have a nice, elastic feel to them making them a cinch to tie. Even the shoelace ends (aglets) are color coordinated, adding a little bit of style to an already stylish shoe.

I did notice today that I could hear my own footsteps on an asphalt parking lot while wearing these New Balance shoes. Makes me think that it might be hard to be incognito in a deserted, hard surfaced hallway.

On balance I do like this pair of shoes and plan on putting a lot of mileage on them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Making Scents, July 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's the fourth diffuser I've tried , and it's a good one. Aesthetically ordinary when turned off, it springs to life with rising swirls of scented mist and color changing beauty. This diffuser is easy to fill with its included measuring cup; there's even a fill mark on the water tank so you don't accidentally overfill. Only a slight twist is needed to open the diffuser for filling; lining up two easily seen dots makes it a cinch to put it back together again.

Two control buttons on the appliance are simplicity personified, one button for mist, and one for light control. Keep the colors rotating, choose one constant color, or turn off the light entirely. It's up to you.

This diffuser starts up almost instantly and does a good job distributing its scent in the room and beyond. Another diffuser I had required lots of essential oil drops to get even a hint of scent.

Bottom line - This appliance is fairly priced and performs admirably. It gets a Spudman recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, July 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Mrs. Spudman has been wearing this sport bra and likes it a lot. She tells me that the bra has good fit, comfort, and fit. Even with lots of movement the bra doesn't ride up on her. Using the chart on the listing, she chose size XL and is happy with her decision. If undecided on a size, it's best to choose the larger of the two sizes being considered to be safe. The cups do have some minimal padding for comfort and appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Striking Orb, July 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The listing pictures may be confusing since it looks like two necklaces are pictured. Actually the two seemingly different pendants are the same, a different design on each side. It's like getting two pieces of jewelry for the price of one. The Dubai Eye side glitters with a rainbow of colors with a matching little charm between the chain and the jewelry's clasp.
On the other side is a slightly concave design with its own pattern in multiple colors that looks like inlaid stained glass. The chain itself is glossy with a weight heavy enough to support the jewelry pendant.

Whether a piece of jewelry appeals to someone is subjective depending on that person's taste. If you are looking for a piece a little heavier, a little larger, and a little sparklier, then this necklace might be for you.

Note - Deciding between a four or a five star rating was a toss up to me. Elicited female opinions tilted the scale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Embroidered Elegance, July 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When offered a sample yoga mat bag to evaluate, I chose the less expensive black bag though I still can't figure out the reason for the difference in cost for the two colors. The bag is absolutely gorgeous with a machine embroidered stem of four roses adorning the exterior of the bag. Stitching on the embroidery is tight and neat.
The bag itself is light yet constructed of durable canvas. An external zippered pouch on the exterior front is large enough for cell phone or keys. On the zippered pocket are embroidered an emblem and "MYSHINE."

Lining the large, zippered main compartment is a light, absorbent material that looks like it will allow some air circulation.
Attached to the bag is a firmly attached, adjustable shoulder strap for carrying bag and mat.

In the past couple months I've had the opportunity to evaluate quite a few different types of bags. This one is by far the lowest in price and offers a lot of value for the money. It's such a beautiful and well designed bag that someone thinking outside the box can surely think of other uses for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best for Shaving, July 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Alba shave cream is by far my favorite shaving cream. It's not a foam like other shaving creams but an actual cream that comes out of the tube like a thin strand of toothpaste. It feels good going on my face and and feels good afterwards also. With the Alba I find that the razor glides smoothly and I get fewer cuts on my face from shaving.
I bought the unscented this time because of the great price from this particular seller. For those who prefer a mild scent, the mango vanilla Alba is also excellent. Since the cream is much thicker and more condensed than ordinary foam cream, a tube lasts quite a long time.

Bonus features:
no animal testing
no artificial colors
no parabens
no phthalates
no potatoes harmed in the manufacture of this product

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Work, July 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Galapagos [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Bought this to sample my new Blu-ray player and am not disappointed. The narration is compelling and the photography is state of the art with fabulous color and detail. On many of the scenes you feel like you can reach out and touch the animals.
My only dislike is seeing some of the graphic scenes of death either by a predator or by nature. In a Galapagos video a survival of the fittest theme with examples is appropriate but sometimes not easy to watch. This squeamish viewer just keeps his finger on the fast forward button and enjoys the video.

4.0 out of 5 stars Aroma and Light Show, July 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This diffuser is quiet and begins working almost as soon as it is turned on. I like the simplicity of controls; one button turns the unit on and off, fixes the unit on one color, or lets it change colors in a regular order. To fill simply take off the top and put it back on.
I found that to get more aroma from the essential oils, don't fill with water to the fill line, but only halfway; at full you'll have to add more drops of the oil.
The electrical cord attaches to the bottom of the unit; some might prefer that the attachment be at the back of the unit so it doesn't have to be lifted to be unplugged. Also the Vtin doesn't come with a plastic measuring cup for filling as do some other diffusers.

Bottom line - This is a quiet diffuser with a relaxing array of light colors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lighting Up Mr. Potato Head, July 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I use this light to illuminate a large Mr. Potato Head in the front yard. It's the third solar spotlight I've used for that application. The light and solar panel should periodically be cleaned, but since my light is ten feet off the ground I don't get up there often to wipe it off. To attach the light to the tall tree stump, I drilled holes through the ground stake and then attached the stake and light with long screws.

This light has a button on the bottom for high, low and off settings. Of course, the light lasts more hours on the low setting. I like that the adjustments at the hinges can be hand tightened, no screwdriver necessary. When I have to adjust the angle of the light I don't want to have to bring a screwdriver up the ladder with me. Squirrels often knock the light out of position.

The light is bright and lasts most of the night; I'm saitsified with my choice of spotlight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ceramic Protection, July 26, 2015
These are five inch tweezers with ceramic handles and replaceable tips. Wish I'd had these a few weeks ago when I was moving some wires in the wall and got a few mild wake ups. These tweezers have a secure grip and sharp, precision point; they have non-conductive and heat resistant properties too. Besides coil work they can be used to remove small objects from tight spaces or to pick up tiny screws.
Mrs. Spudman has even borrowed these to use in her sewing room.
