5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL SOUND QUALITY PLUS COMFORT, May 28, 2015
It's amazing to me that something so small can deliver such great sound quality - really comparable to our home stereo.

And, they're comfortable - a most welcome relief after heavy, uncomfortable headphones! These are perfect for running jogging or simply strolling along.

Plus, I love the lime green cable - adds a bit of zing what could could have been a plain black device.

In addition, the price is very reasonable for what we're getting. Who isn't price conscious these days?

Sign me Very Well Pleased.

5.0 out of 5 stars TYLER IS ALWAYS TOPS, May 28, 2015
A new novel by Anne Tyler is always a happily anticipated event for me. Her stories ring true, warm my heart, and kindly yet accurately describe our shared humanity. Such is the case with her 20th novel, A Spool Of Blue Thread. Frosting on the cake is hearing this saga of four generations read by the accomplished Kimberly Farr. She is a gifted actress with many Broadway appearances to her credit, and she brings her wealth of experiences to this narration.

The four generations mentioned are all members of the Baltimore Whitshank family headed by Red and Abby who have now reached the age when they need some looking after. It does not take long for Tyler to introduce all of the family along with their foibles - Red tends to be critical, Abby offers smother love. Denny, their 19-year-old son, is dubbed unreliable by his siblings. One down to earth offspring offers ways to care for their aging parents. Amanda and Stem who will inherit Whitshank construction have what might be called cameo appearances until an unexpected event has Tyler taking us back in time to explore and reveal oft told Whitshank stories.

As the years unfold laughter and happiness emerges as do disappointments and secrets that have been kept hidden. While all of this might seem to be a script for any family in Tyler's hands it is a richly rewarding story, fresh and remarkable.

Enjoy!

1.0 out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTING, May 28, 2015
While I do not have sensitive skin nor have I ever had an adverse reaction to a beauty product this lip balm simply wasn't. By definition balm is a preparation used to soothe the skin, not so as with the first application there was an irritating tingling then an almost burning sensation. After waiting several days I tried again with the same result.

Maybe too much peppermint? I know not. But I'll stick with my old reliable Burt's Bees or a really satisfactory lip serum I found on Amazon - JeNu.

Do wish my experience had been better as I really dislike writing negative reviews, and am sorry to have to do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL PLEASED WITH THIS EYE SERUM, May 27, 2015
This Eye Serum is truly a serum rather than a cream, so it doesn't leave an unwanted whiteness around the yes. It absorbs quickly so makeup can be applied within a minute or two after using the serum.

It doesn't take very much for both eyes. I like to apply a tiny amount to my fingertip and then softly pat around the eye area beginning close to the nose and working up to under the eyebrow.

I'm also impressed with the serum's ingredients such as Aloe Leaf Juice and Sunflower Seed Oil.

Also happy to say that the expiration date on the bottle I received is 1/20/17 - so fresh!

Glad to recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY IMPRESSED WITH THIS PRODUCT, May 27, 2015
If you're one of those with devices that need a lot of recharging this Solar Panel Charger is for you (even if you're not you'll still want it as it really is a nifty item.

This has really come in handy when we've been away from home such as on an overnight or a camping trip. And, you can even recharge your iPhone or iPad while the Charger is in the sun.

I'll surely be getting one of these for a young friend who is going off to college and has more devices than I knew existed.

By the way, the Charger I have is black and like that it comes in a variety of "happier" colors.

Happy to recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPER DESIGN/COLOR AND SOUND, May 25, 2015
I'm really enjoying this headset - just looking at it perks me up. I'm assuming that most of us are "visual" people and a bright or favorite color really does affect us. In addition, they're very comfortable to wear.

The sound quality is excellent, especially the bass tones.

Really appreciated that also included in the box in addition to the headset was a carrying pouch, Micro USB Charging Cable, and a helpful User Manual.

All of this at a reasonable price.

5.0 out of 5 stars TERRIFIC TOTE, May 23, 2015
I can still remember when a tote bag was heavy before you put anything in it. Ridiculous! So, much applause for this bag that weighs next to nothing until you start filling it with all your cannot-do-withouts.

It is large enough to be a his and hers for weekend trips - plenty of space for his shaving gear, etc, and my makeup stuff.

Ours (yes, that's what it has turned out to be) is blue, and easy to spot on a luggage rack. It has also come in handy to carry wet togs home from a day at the beach (2 bathing suits, 2 large towels, sunscreen, etc. and still room left over.

It works well when young ones are going on an overnight, too. There's no telling the number of uses we'll eventually find for it.

Happy to recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL OF US NEED A LITTLE LOVE, May 20, 2015
As the song goes, "What the world needs now is love, sweet love..." and that's exactly what you'll find on every link of this adorable silver and red charm bracelet. I gifted a young friend of mine with this and she's still thanking me for it. As we know girls of that age aren't known for taking extra careful care of their accessories, and she has worn it every day for almost a month. It is still as pretty and shiny as it was the day it arrived.

There's no need to worry about the size of your wrist as there are several links allowing for adjustments.

The price is so reasonable for an item of this quality, that it would make an ideal graduation, birthday or any occasion gift.

Happy to recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOPNOTCH OIL DIFFUSER, May 19, 2015
As I believe I mentioned in a previous review we are new to using an oil diffuser, and it seems we've started at the top because as far as we're concerned this is one of the best.

The wood grain finish of the diffuser is handsome and goes well with any decor whether it be modern or traditional - at home or in an office.

We very much appreciate that it is an automatic turn off - so important for safety's sake. And if you're simply wanting a humidifier this also fits the bill providing a cool, refreshing mist.

Happy to recommend.

The Memory Painter: A Novel
The Memory Painter: A Novel
by Gwendolyn Womack
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $17.77

4.0 out of 5 stars COMPLEX, IMAGINATIVE, AN ENTERPRISING DEBUT, May 18, 2015
Complex, imaginative, intricately plotted author Womack's debut is a doozey! When a research team develops a drug that does wonders for those suffering from Alzheimer's one wonders what the same drug might do for a healthy mind. Any guesses?

Bryan Pierce, an artist, is compelled to paint the very lifelike dreams from which he suffers. At a Boston museum he meets Linz Jacobs, a brilliant scientist studying memory. She, too, suffers from a powerful childhood dream. It soon becomes clear to Bryan that somehow their dreams are related, and further that he and Linz have known and loved each other in past lives. From there the reader is catapulted into different time frames that have been inhabited by Bryan - an ancient Roman priest, the painter Jan van Eyck, a Japanese samurai, Russian writer Alexander Pushkin. The rapidity of these movements back and forth in time do tend to be somewhat confusing, albeit fascinating.

It seems to Bryan who by the way is also fluent in 30 languages that the only thing to do is to wait for Linz's dreams to catch up with his. Bear in mind that these dreams are not akin to the dreams that we might have but are retellings of entire lifetimes spanning thousands of years. Evidently the pair have lived and loved in ancient Rome and Egypt and lived as poets. How would it be possible for the human mind to contain or process all of this?

Womack raises a multitude of questions, which eventually take us to a surprising and perhaps for some a dubious conclusion. The Memory Painter is an enterprising debut and we wait to see what this author will come up with next.
