Mudder® Skeleton Antique Mechanical Pocket Watch with Chain Black
Mudder® Skeleton Antique Mechanical Pocket Watch with Chain Black
Offered by Mudder
Price: $16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars There's No Time Like the Present, August 22, 2014
In the time and age we live it, it would seem that there is no place in the world for watches. However, I still wear a wrist watch that I have owned for over 10 years. I also own several pocket watches, including my grandfathers that he used when he was a night watchmen in the 1930. I’ve always been impressed by the way that pocket watches work and with the MUDDER BLACK SKELETON ANTIQUE MECHANICAL POCKET WATCH WITH BLACK CHAIN I now can actually see the inner workings of a pocket watch without having to take the back off.

Although this pocket watch is a see-through skeleton design, it’s a gorgeous looking watch. There are large Roman numerals on the face and a transparent lid that opens by pressing a button. There are no instructions included with the watch, but it works like all pocket watches I have ever used do: you set the time by lifting the stem, then when you’re done you wind until you feel it getting tight (you should feel some resistance or the stem will not twist any more).

The watch comes in a nice little gift box that includes a small miniature pillow.

Overall, the MUDDER BLACK SKELETON ANTIQUE MECHANICAL POCKET WATCH WITH BLACK CHAIN is a beautiful looking pocket watch. It makes a great gift for anyone who likes pocket watches as or as a costume accessory.

I was provided a sample from the manufacture in exchange for a possible review.

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars The Final Book in the Series, August 22, 2014
The final book in this special edition Golden series of the first STAR WARS trilogy. RETURN OF THE JEDI finishes the saga begun in A NEW HOPE and continued in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. Like the other two books in the series, this book successfully condenses the plot of the movie into a smaller storybook book. It Contains some great pictures from the movie. If you've read the first two, this one is a must.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Quite Well, August 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Spirit Gum Remover 1 Oz (Apparel)
During a recent theatrical production I was in, I had several facial hair pieces that required spirit gum to attach. Good spirit gum works well, but it can also be extremely difficult to remove from one's face. I had some spirit gum remover as well as rubbing alcohol. However, for whatever reason, they weren't working very well. So, I ordered a bottle of this SPIRIT GUM REMOVER 1 OZ from Amazon and gave it a try. It worked so much better than the other spirit gum removers I was using! Also, it doesn't burn the skin as much, either. I will definitely be using this in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Friends Helping Friends, August 18, 2014
This review is from: Dog's Coffee-Shop (Paperback)
At the DOG'S COFFEE-SHOP, a group of dogs meet each week to have coffee and apple cake and discuss their lives. One day Miss Daschund shares some terrible news: her beloved family has moved away and left her behind and she has no where to go. The founding members of the Dog Club agree that they will help Miss Daschund find a new family and home. The events that happen over the next week are both heartwarming and humorous. DOG'S COFFEE-SHOP is a short little ebook that younger children will probably enjoy scrolling through (the illustrations of the dogs sitting at a table with coffee and cake is sure to provide a laugh). The story also has a good lesson to impart about friends helping friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Biggest Vehicles in the World, August 17, 2014
This review is from: Giant Vehicles (Hardcover)
GIANT VEHICLES is a children's book about some of the largest vehicles in the world. The book consists of a two-page illustration of each of the vehicles and is filled with little diagrams, side notes, and illustrations that point out the various parts of the vehicles. The vehicles in the book are: super-train, giant jumbo, whopper chopper, rocket to the moon, mighty dumper, floating hotel (Oasis of the Sea), sub sandwich (Typhoon submarine), and the world's biggest ship. In addition, each illustration has several flaps that can be lifted to see the inner-workings of the machine that is being discussed. For instance, lift up the flap in the middle of the mighty dumper and see a picture of the engine inside. Overall, GIANT VEHICLES is an informative and interactive book for children, particularly those with an interest in machines and transportation.

That pesky & wisecracking citrus fruit and his friends are back for more adventures in ANNOYING ORANGE #5: TRANSFARMERS: FOOD PROCESSORS IN DISGUISE! In the title story, Annoying Orange and his food stuff friends are warned by the powerful Cosmic Cucumber that Earth is about to be invaded by some machines from a different world that will strip the planet of anything that is edible. Annoying Orange and his friends are chosen and agree to stop the machines and save the planet.

Other stories in ANNOYING ORANGE #5: TRANSFARMERS: FOOD PROCESSORS IN DISGUISE! are:

"The Annoying Apple?" – Apple makes a riddle and attempts to be as annoying as Orange.

"Orange Tries a New Hobby" – Orange tries out several different hobbies.

"Nightmare Pear" – Pear can't get a good night's sleep because he keeps having nightmares. He goes to

I'm not a huge fan of Annoying Orange, but I enjoyed reading this graphic novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting In Shape at Home, August 15, 2014
I have never seen an episode of THE BIGGEST LOSER and, before purchasing JILLIAN MICHAELS 30 DAY SHRED, had never used a fitness DVD before. In 2009, after several years of having no fitness or exercise regimen, I wanted to begin a training regimen to get back in shape. At the time, I didn't have the finances to afford a gym membership, but a friend of mine recommended JILLIAN MICHAELS 30 DAY SHRED. I purchased the DVD and used it for a six month period and it was extremely helpful.

Other than a tv with a working DVD player and a space to workout, all one needs is a couple of hand weights and maybe an exercising mat. There are three different workouts on the DVD. The easiest is Level 1, Level 2 is moderate, and Level 3 is the most challenging. Each workout consists of a 2-minute warm-up. These are followed by a series of 3 circuits that are 6-minutes-long. Each circuit consists of 3 minutes of strength, followed by 2 minutes of cardio, followed by 1 minute of ab. Finally, the workout ends with a 2-minute cool down. Although there are some exercises that are repeated, none of the circuits are completely repetitive.

You are supposed to use this program by working out on Level 1 for 10 days, then progressing to Level 2 for 10 days, before finally ending with a 10-day-workout on Level 3. Initially when I purchased this DVD, I followed the program. However, I ended working out with it for about 6 months. So, after completing the initial program, I started over, but would mix it up: I worked on Level 1 for a day, the next day I would do Level 3, the next day I might do Level 1 or Level 2, etc. There would also be some days that I would do a series of two workouts: for instance Level 3 followed by Level 1 or maybe two rounds of Level 2.

During the first 30 days I followed the program, I lost about 12 pounds and was definitely more toned and in shape. After six months of using it, I had lost about 20 pounds.

Overall, JILLIAN MICHAELS 30 DAY SHRED is a great workout video for anyone who wants to a workout video to use at home. If you stick to the program, it will help you get in shape.


Luxor
Luxor

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining & Frustrating Addiction, August 15, 2014
This review is from: Luxor (Video Game)
Luxor is a casual matching/strategy game. You are given a shooter/paddle that shoots out colored spheres. At each level a maze is presented before you. A train of colored spheres appears at the beginning of the maze and progresses its way through the maze. Your objective is to get rid of all the colored spheres by lining up at least three matching colors by using your shooter. Each level itself becomes a little bit more difficult as the snake of spheres moves faster and faster and there are more and more of them. Also, as you progress each level become more difficult as the mazes become more complicated and your aim become blocked by objects. Later, the game gets even harder as more colored spheres are added.

Along each level you can gain power ups that can assist you in beating a level. For instance, there's one power up that will clear all the spheres of a certain color that are currently appearing on the maze. Another power up will reverse the direction of the snake. Coins are also dropped when you make a match. In addition there are tiny little ankhs that are dropped and if you collect at least thirty of these in one game, an extra life will be given to you.

LUXOR is an entertaining and highly addictive game. However, it can also be really frustrating. There are 88 levels in total and some of the levels are incredibly difficult to beat. I played the game on and off for over a year before I was finally able to beat it. Many people will give up long before they ever reach level 88, let alone beat it. But if you do, you'll actually feel like you achieved something (even if it was just beat a video game).

5.0 out of 5 stars Facing Your Fears, August 15, 2014
Lucas the Lion is a young lion who lives in the jungle with his friends. Lucas is strong and brave and doesn't seem to be afraid of anything. However, Lucas does have one great fear and in LUCAS THE LION AND THE PIRATE SHIP, Lucas has to come face to face with that fear.

After Lucas scares away a hunter, he and his friend Ryan the Rabbit discover a boat left behind by the man. Ryan wants to play pirate with the boat, but Lucas talks him out of it because Lucas is scared of water. Later when his friend Ryan the Rabbit decides to hold his birthday party on the boat, Lucas has to admit his fear. His friends make fun of him and leave him alone on the shore. However, the current is too strong and soon his friends find themselves rushing towards a cascading waterfall and only Lucas can save them.

LUCAS THE LION AND THE PIRATE SHIP is a cutely illustrated children's story with a great message about overcoming one's fears. Young children will enjoy it and through reading the story and discussing it can gain encouragement to overcome their own fears.
