4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. Wish it didn't use four wing nuts to assemble., July 21, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The frame is decent, and I'd probably love it if I didn't also have a LUCID Foldable Metal Platform Bed Frame and Mattress Foundation. I like that other one better. It's about ten bucks more, but it's built better and feels sturdier (but has a lower weight rating? Maybe they're being conservative). Same general design, and both are convenient. This one feels a bit lighter, so perhaps it's easier to transport. This one requires four wing nuts to be removed/affixed anytime you want to collapse or assemble the bed. I prefer the design of the Lucid bed a bit more due to convenience and my perception of build quality. Still... this one isn't bad. Just not my top choice.


Chickenizing Farms and Food: How Industrial Meat Production Endangers Workers, Animals, and Consumers
Chickenizing Farms and Food: How Industrial Meat Production Endangers Workers, Animals, and Consumers
by Ellen K. Silbergeld
Edition: Hardcover
Price: $26.95

5.0 out of 5 stars A well-written academic account of current food animal production practices, July 21, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a reasonably long book, and not a quick read. It's academic in tone, and a well-researched account of the growth of the food animal production industry in both the United States and the rest of the world over the last century or so. There is plenty of examination of the flaws of our current system, but also balanced attention to its benefits (mostly increased production, and the ability to feed more people). The author makes clear that in order to solve the problems, "the answer is not a return to past practice", so those wanting a whole-scale re-adoption of the agrarian lifestyle of the 1800's and earlier will likely be disappointed by some of her conclusions. As will anyone wanting a strongly prescriptive set of solutions at all, as this is definitely the weakest part of her book. The author presents a few good general guidelines in her last chapter, but by and large, there are no answers here. Only a good analysis of the present situation of (including problems with) our current food production methods, which are otherwise hidden behind very closed (and 'ag gagged') doors.


SOS Rehydrate Hydration Drink, Coconut, 3.2 Ounce
SOS Rehydrate Hydration Drink, Coconut, 3.2 Ounce
Price: $17.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Tasty, and decent, but expensive, July 20, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
These are pretty handy. The coconut flavor is great, and the ingredients are pretty much what you'd expect from a sports mix: sugar and electrolytes. There's some stirring (or shaking?) required to dissolve the mix, but it's not as difficult as some other athletic mixes I've tried. It dissolves without too much work. Anyway, if you don't want to create your own more or less equivalent powdered mix for *much* less money (sugar, salt, and 'lite salt'/potassium chloride are the basic ingredients), these are a good way to go if you need a tasty highly portable powdered mix to add to water on the go.

4.0 out of 5 stars I like it. But..., July 18, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like this, and it serves its purpose as a way of making steel water bottles easier to drink from, but it's not perfect. The rubber pull-up thing that allows water to flow is really tough to open. More resistance than I've noticed from other similar products. That said... when it's closed, it doesn't leak, and when it's open, the water flows pretty well. Overall, a nice product, and I'm glad I have it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice wrench. Highly polished, July 18, 2016
Very nice wrench. Highly polished, longer than my previous 1/2" wrench (so more leverage). The ratcheting mechanism is smooth, and works well. And it's shiny. Looks and works fantastically well. Doesn't look like there's a whole set available at the moment, and I do more work with metric than SAE, so I'm hoping I see more tools from this company in the future. The price is a bit high for just one wrench, but if you need this size, it's not a bad choice at all.

Note: I received this product at a discount in exchange for a review. That said, it's actually a really well-made tool. I was impressed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small, but it works, July 18, 2016
The tuning fork works, but is smaller than other forks I've seen and used. As a result, it's not very loud. If it doesn't need to be for your purposes, then it may work for you.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Works fine. It's a basic SATA cable. Length as advertised. Latching, which I like, to keep things secure. Nothing particularly special about it though. It's a simple product.

This is a huge bag of a fabulous and tasty trail mix. It's just cranberries, cashews, and almonds. Well, and a bit of salt. Really good stuff. Would make a nice gift. For me, anyway. Love it!

This book is a great one for my daughter, age 3. It helps with basic drawing and tracing skills, getting her ready to write letters. Full color, removable pages, and lots of them (it's a thick book). I like it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun sticker activity kit., July 3, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a fun little sticker activity kit for kids. Five printed card stock pieces that have blank spots for pre-cut stickers. They're each packaged individually, so they'd work as party favors, or for travel. I wish there were more diversity in the stickers. Most are small simple shapes. I'm also wondering if it wouldn't be better for creativity to not have a designated spot for each sticker to go. Might be better to just get a large pack of stickers, then turn kids loose on white paper, with crayons. Anyway, the set is decent.
