3.0 out of 5 stars A book to read after you've read all the important WW II books!, November 30, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
While it was an interesting story about a granddaughter's search for the reason behind her grandparent's estrangement, it reminded me of a classroom assignment. The author did a nice job of describing certain characters and locations, however, it could have been written in about half the number of pages. Having read many books about WW II, this one just didn't hold my interest as most of the others did.

4.0 out of 5 stars You won't be sorry, November 30, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This tablecloth is exactly as described and adds a touch of elegance to a special occasion. It washes well and turns out like new. It is lovely over a colored tablecloth with it's scalloped edge. My own favorite use for it is as a tree skirt under our flocked Christmas tree. Gives it just the right shabby chic look.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the most comfortable travel pillow I have tried, November 30, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is the most comfortable travel pillow I have tried. It supports my neck and will be great for an upcoming long plane trip. The dark covering is wonderful for not showing dirt or wear and tear. I am hoping to try to use this as an extra pillow when I arrive at my destination. A must have for anyone hoping to sleep while traveling. It worked for a long car ride as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent storage value for the price, and solidly reliable., October 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I find this hard drive a bargain - $149 is more than I used to pay for a 500MB drive not too long ago. I've been using this drive for about six months with nary a problem. At 4 massive TB, I can't imagine you'll fill it up anytime soon. It feels sturdy, works perfectly with my iMac, and has posed not a single problem. Go for it!


Waiting On You (Hqn)

4.0 out of 5 stars Dcent summer read . . ., October 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's beach novel fluff, which means that it probably shouldn't be compared to Shakespeare or heck, even James Michener. But as a beach novel, this is pretty entertaining and page-turning stuff. I haven't read anything else by Kristan Higgins, though she has very devoted fans and a good reputation, and - if you're a fan of this sort of book - you can understand why.

The tale itself is about a romance that functionally ended, but not in the hearts of the relevant parties. Aspects of it are a little absurd, but hey . . . guilty pleasure, right? Higgins tells the tale from multiple perspectives and creates a unique little world just long enough for the mojitos to sink in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light, powerful and easy!, October 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I don't have a whole lot of experience with impact drivers, and I was a little concerned to find this ACDelco-branded one surprisingly lightweight, and the packaging a little on the flimsy (read cheap) side.

However, in actual use, this packs a pretty mighty punch - powerful and reliable. I've found that the battery has a decent (though not spectacular) life, but rather amazingly in these days of skimpy extras, TWO batteries are included, effectively doubling the driver's life on a specific job . . . well past the point where they'd both be expended.

This was a pleasant surprise, and well-worth the couple of bills it will set you back.

note: Other reviewers have noted the ACDelco brand as one best-known for automobile parts, and with a deservedly good reputation, but remark that this particular tool is not *actually* made by them. No worries, clearly it seems that ACDelco has maintained a certain quality control here. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars I loved it . . ., August 18, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I loved it - it's very cilanto-heavy and tastes like salsa from a lot of my favorite Mexican places. The presence of garlic in noticeable but not too heavy (I'm not too keen on garlic.) That said, several of my guests *really* didn't like it - felt it was too "leafy" and strong. But these were folks used to the sort of salsa found in the Frito-Lay aisle, so keep that in mind. Foodies'll dig it. One caveat: one of my jars arrived broken, despite being packed fairly well and despite the jars feeling pretty solid. Good product at a good price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great. great cleaning product . . ., August 18, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Okay, I'm lazy. But I do keep things clean, and for many years used Windex or something similar to clean just about everything. This Mr Clean Liquid Muscle All Purpose Surface Cleaner does what Windex used to do, but a whole whole lot better. It's a great product, with a specially designed dispenser that minimizes waste, and the ability to use the product directly (on a sponge, as one would dish detergent) or to dilute it for floor or counter clean-up. I've used it both ways; it does the job and smells nice. The label says it doesn't contain a lot of the more harmful (or harsh) ingredients found in similar products (though I'm not sure what it does contain!) and very little of the cleaner is needed - much less than you'd think - making this an economical choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright and shiny tires . . ., August 17, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've no idea how this works, except that it works really well. Tires are notoriously difficult to clean let alone keep shiny, but this Dub Tire Shine works fantastically well after some basic general cleaning, and tires seem to keep their shine much longer than one would think they could. This is a decent-sized can, and the price is definitely right - I paid less than $7. Shiny tires may not be on your radar, but if you care how your car looks, this is a bargain.
