4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and appearance, December 15, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Excellent quality pants - they need to be high quality (mostly durable) for Big Boys anyway, and a good, snug fit that can go a little bigger or smaller, just in case. Certainly beats wearing a belt, since my kids don't like wearing belts - mostly because they can never find them.

For us, these will be worn mostly when we want to get dressed up a bit...and they look really nice. For everyday use, they would certainly hold up, but they'd need more pockets (cargo pants) to become a favorite for a boy. All in all, however, these are some of the best quality pants we've had for khaki's for a boy.

Recommended...they fit good, look good, and should hold up quite well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great machine: very versatile, attractive, and high quality, December 14, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Already having an older Singer and an older-but-not-quite-as-old Husqvarna sewing machine, this new computerized Special Edition singer was a welcome addition to the sewing machine family.

The machine lives up to its claims for being very versatile in both the number of total stitches and accessories! Setup was a breeze, but I will point out that threading both the bobbin and needle are a little bit more involved than my older machines. Actually, the needle is more involved, whereas the bobbin threading liked to jump the bobbin and end up twisting thread around the post. It does, however, work fine the majority of the time and once you get the hang of it, it will become second nature (just like whatever machine you're already used to!)

For seasoned sewers, this is a great machine. For a beginner, my only caution would be that there is a learning curve to both sewing and sewing machines, and the available options of the computerized machines introduces another bit of specialized learning before becoming effective. If you have a good book, tutor, or a class that you're attending then it is not much to fuss about; if you're hoping to start sewing crazy things without much experience, you'd probably want to learn basics first, which this machine can do, but the temptation is there to go hog wild before being proficient overall.

At the end of the day, this is a great machine with a fabulous array of options, quality build, a very large sewing area (much better than my previous machines), and it looks nice - it's not very often you see a sewing machine look somewhat futuristic!

Recommended, but if it is your first time, be patient and consider taking a class or having someone experienced to help with at least the sewing part of the equation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helps with dry skin - don't slip on it!, December 14, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Works, has some weird instructions. Basically, clean yourself, put this one when you're still wet, rub it all over, except on the bottom of your feet (yes, the instructions say so, and yes, it's because it's super slippery and you could fall to your final demise because of it.) Then after it's rinsed off, the instructions say to clean the shower/bathtub to make sure the slippery residue is gone. Basically, they're saying the product itself isn't safe in the bathroom because it's so slippery, so make sure you get it all gone when you're done.

Despite all that, this stuff does help with dry skin, and has a pleasant, light scent (not sure what it's supposed to smell like, but to me it's almost like a baby powder.) Having used it to see if it helps with dry skin due to the cold, dry winter season, it does help and reduces the itching, but it's not 100%...nor would I expect it to be.

Overall, it's worth a try if you have dry skin, but be careful to make sure you don't slip on it and die!


Perky-Pet 5151 Premium Squirrel-Be-Gone Breakaway Wild Bird Feeder
Perky-Pet 5151 Premium Squirrel-Be-Gone Breakaway Wild Bird Feeder
Price: $53.43

4.0 out of 5 stars Great (big) bird feeder!, December 13, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Great bird feeder - and a lot bigger than I imagined. It should save plenty of time and money - squirrels can eat their squirrel corn on cob, birds and eat from the copious amount of bird food that this feeder gives, and you save time by not refilling small feeders.

So far, it's a great feeder that feels and looks quality made that should withstand the elements. Time will tell, as far as holding up to UV and rain and temperate changes.

Overall, I'd recommend this feeder even if it is a little pricey from other feeders I've purchased in the past...it's huge!

4.0 out of 5 stars Much more attractive than the picture suggests, December 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent coin and decoration. While I usually get a new Christmas coin each year from QSB, I decided to look around a bit (based on already having their two designs and silver going for under 18/ounce and their Christmas coins selling for 60 bucks), and found this, and others from the same seller.

While the image details of the QSB coins I have is more detailed and the shine is more mirror-like than this Christmas Snowman and Penguin coin, I think the seller is doing the coin disservice with the picture they give. The picture has the entire coin with the hazy, "brushed" look to the silver. The coin I received has a very shiny "sky" and the raised image (snowman, penguin, ground, and the entire reverse side) has the non-shiny look. Quite frankly, the shiny vs. not shiny part looks very well together, and much better than the picture lets on.

As stated in the description, the back side has an area for engraving if you're into that (or driving somewhere to have it done.) It'd be nice if there was an option for engraving before shipping, but it's not a big deal.

Overall, a great coin/ornament that I'd recommend getting!

Great memory...got an old...OLD laptop that has a max RAM of 2 gigs up to its max, and is now running Windows7 as best as can be hoped for. Easy to install just like any other memory, and no problems in using it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good cable, very attractive and flexible!, December 9, 2014
Was provided this cable free of charge in exchange for a review, and have been using it for a few days now, and have no problems to report. It's a good cable that's significantly more attractive than others...especially with its flexible nylon cover instead of the usual plastic or whatnot.

Haven't had any problems so far...and don't expect any, because, after all, it's cable. If it works, it's going to keep working.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ingredients, size, and results., December 8, 2014
Great sized pills - a company actually got it right that a lot of people would rather swallow a couple smaller pills than a gigantic one that twists and turns on your throat as it goes down. Good job there!

We received these in the days leading up to childbirth (received free of charge in exchange for an honest review), so we didn't get to do the full effect of pre-birth benefits. However, we were also told that taking prenatal vitamins are good for mom's after birth for overall wellness and for breast feeding.

Taking them continuously and while it's difficult to be definitive in the area of vitamins, they seem like they give a bit more of a boost (or less of a sluggishness), and the boobie milk keeps coming, so we can't argue with those results.

I also love the fact that they're non-GMO. Studies have shown that mom's that eat GMO "food" secret the chemical that the "food" was doused with (RoundUp and the like) in breast milk. Can't imagine that being good for anyone, and excellent job to NutriGold for not including any GMOs!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice stuffed toy, but..., December 8, 2014
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As a whole, this little stuffed dog is cute, soft, and kids seem to like it. For myself, however, I couldn't help but compare it to the Gund 2014 Amazon Collectible Teddy Bear, which is a lot softer and cuddlier. If I had to pick one, I'd probably go with the Teddy Bear instead of the "Teddy Dog," but hey, some people like dogs more.

It is nice that the fur on this actually looks like the fur you'd see on a little Pomeranian. I'm not a fan of living tiny dogs, but this one is cute enough to stick around. And it doesn't yap!

Nice stuffed friend, but not as soft as others from Gund.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick setup and internet from this USB wireless adapter, December 6, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Installed on W7 laptop, and was up and running in minutes. While I was hoping it would "just install" by itself, I did have to use the CD to get the correct drivers installed, but that's why they included the CD to begin with. Connected to a 5GhZ network without any issues, and the net was fast and stable.

The biggest downside of this is that if you're installing it into a laptop, it in a rather large dongle that you don't want to forget about, lest you end up putting pressure on it that may effect it or the USB port it's plugged into.

Overall, a nice little device that's easy to use and gets whatever you're plugging it into online quickly. Recommended.
