4.0 out of 5 stars The many characters are interesting and the acting is excellent. I find Stephen King to scary to read, July 10, 2014
A refreshing new drama, not focused on the law or medicine. The many characters are interesting and the acting is excellent. I find Stephen King to scary to read, but the show tempers it to just the right level of creepiness. A lot happens in Season 1. I wonder how they'll keep our attention now that many of the issues of survival and cooperation have been resolved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed, May 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I don't have a lot of knives. Keeping them in a drawer is awkward and can be dangerous. Wooden blocks take up counter space. This bar has powerful magnets and practically grabs the knives out of your hands when you put them up.

Two caveats: Serrated knives such as those for cutting bread do not stick as well. I keep that one in a drawer.

The screws are mounted at the ends below the black insets, which look great. But, once in, you can't get the insets out. They are tight and flush with the outside. I think the only way to get them out is with a drill. So either leave out the insets, or put the bar int the perfect place (which of course is high enough so little ones can't reach the knives).

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for used envelopes, May 5, 2014

I belong to an online book swap club and reuse envelopes and boxes sent to me. These labels have a special backing that completely blocks anything underneath them. They are high quality and do not smear.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal, May 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
At 143 pages, this book allows but a glimpse into the massive tomes Nick and the rest use for research about Wessen, but is still fascinating. It's a great reference book as you watch the show, and also brings back fond memories of shows past. The index at the front lists all Wessen, listing page numbers for those included in the book.

The pages are in color, glossy and high quality, in much better condition than the originals. They are the same as those we see in the series, which means multiple languages.

A must have for Grimm fans!

(Oh, and just to bragg, I live in Portland, Oregon. A few shows were filmed in my neighborhood.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner, May 5, 2014
This book is well researched and well paced. The chapters that go back in time are short, so it easy to track the plot in the present. Not a lot of shooting or violence. Interesting characters, well written.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very biased against the Affordable Care Act, October 12, 2013
The author's conclusion was that "the law's consequences.... will lower your quality of care, put government in charge of your care, and bring down the curtain on the golden age of medicine." The rest of the book was written to support her conclusion though the use of exaggerations, omissions, and unsupported statements.

For example, did you know that it will cost more to insure a family than an individual? Always has, probably always will. Yet the author states this is as yet another downside of the Affordable Care Act.

The good news is that it is a quick read. I read it during the first half of the Oregon at Washington football game, and still was able to keep up with the game (Oregon 21, Washington 7 at halftime).

Rather than going application by application, Clean Master takes care of everything at once. It cleans the "junk" files and the "tasks" file.

5.0 out of 5 stars They work, July 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered these because I was fostering two puppies who were from a huge rescue effort (almost 150 dogs). The dogs were younger than I thought and not housebroken. I put these throughout the house where they wanted to go, and they were pretty good about hitting them. The pads work great, soaking up the urine but not the carpet.

These pads cost about a dollar each retail and usually come in small quantities, often a dozen. Definitely worth buying more, even if you don't need them all. When I returned the puppies, I also donated the remaining pads to the humane society.
