5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Book Group Choice!, March 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Black Crow White Lie (Paperback)
Candi Sary has written a terrific novella with lots to discuss by book groups. Despite the book's title, nothing and no one is black and white in this coming of age book told from the point of view of Carson, an angry young boy who is also a gifted healer and lives with his alcoholic but loving single mom in a motel and on the gritty streets of Hollywood. Sary explores themes of darkness and hope, healing and destructiveness. Sary characters and settings ring true. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skip this summary and read the real The China Study by T Colin Campbell, November 5, 2013
Why read this book when you can go to the source and read T. Colin Campbell's The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted And the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, And Long-term HealthThe China Study? Beware this book which is filled with recipes using coconut oil--one of the most saturated fat laden sources on the planet. Oils I've learned in seminars with the plant based experts (Dr. Esselstyn, Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Neal Barnard, and others) are highly processed foods with no nutritional value since to produce oil manufacturers strip away all of the naturally occurring fiber and nutrients of the original fruit. If you want the real deal on whole food plant based diets (they include no processed foods nor oil), health (this is the diet that President Clinton follows), and good recipes go to the source: Scientist and researcher T. Colin Campbell's The China Study and his recently published book Whole. See the movie Forks Over Knives (project of T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn's [How to Reverse and Prevent Heart Disease]) and look for these cookbooks: Forks Over Knives Cookbook by Del Sroufe; The China Study Cookbook by Leanne Campbell Disla (Campbell's daughter); Engine 2 Diet and My Beef With Meat by Rip Esselstyn (Dr. Esselstyn's son); and books by Dr. John McDougall and Dr. Neal Barnard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite small. Lovely., November 2, 2013

These earrings were smaller than I wanted. They are great for someone who is looking for something distinctive but not flashy. As with all Miguel Ases, these are extremely lightweight and have beautiful workmanship.

3.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Plain, lacking Miguel Ases distinctiveness., November 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are slightly larger than they seem in the pictures and not very distinctive. They are simple and quite plain, with none of the lovely beading that normally distinguishes Miguel Ases earrings. However, they are perfect for someone who would like something of this nature. Good for corporate wear, for example. The ring of abalone is not necessarily as pink in this picture. Each is slightly different depending on what piece of abalone is used in each particular pair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love these earrings!, November 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These have become my favorite every day earrings. Like all Miguel Ases earrings, the workmanship impeccable and the earrings are extremely lightweight. This picture doesn't do justice to the abalone center which is not a blank whitish grey color, but rather a lovely slightly shimmery blue with natural markings. Each earring's center is slightly different depending what piece of abalone is used. I also purchased a pair of these for a friend and she loves them too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning and unusual, July 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These gorgeous gold bead earrings are an unusual shape for Miguel Ases and particularly stunning. I hemmed and hawed on whether to buy them at this expensive price but have not regretted it. Like all Miguel Ases earrings you hardly feel them on because they are so lightweight--no tugging at your earlobe. The craftsmanship is exquisite. I always get comments when I wear these out to dressy events.

5.0 out of 5 stars Featherweight and Exquisite, July 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Like all Miguel Ases earrings, these are extremely comfortable to wear because they are so lightweight. The beading is exquisitely crafted and they are lovely autumn colors. Particularly gorgeous for a red-head or someone with auburn hair. They have a bit of sparkle, enough to twinkle a bit but still great for everyday wear. I always get comments on these unusual and versatile earrings whenI wear them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, lightweight coral colored, July 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The video of these earrings make them look more raspberry than coral, so I wasn't sure which was the true color. I ordered them anyway, and the photo showing them as the lighter brighter coral color is the true color. Like all Miguel Ases earrings, these are featherweight--hardly feel them on--and are exquisitely made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well balanced, full charge, great battery case, July 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
All battery cases add weight and bulk to an iPhone--it's the nature of the beast. I highly recommend this case. I bought the black Lenmar Meridian one for a trip during which I was going to be in a convention center for an athletic event about 8 hours each day with quite heavy video use. The black one is slightly soft--the texture of a hard eraser-- so it is easy to hold and won't slip (unlike the white one which is a hard shiny plastic that is too slippery for my tastes. I returned it and got the black one). Despite the texture, the black case still slips fairly easily into a jeans pocket. I did the pocket test with the white one at home and it had a tendency to slip out of my pocket when I sat down. The black had more cling, but not too much cling. This case is very well balanced in your hand, weighted a little heavier at the base of the case than the top, so it seems lighter to hold and not too bulky. It easily gave a 100% plus a bit more charge to my phone, living up to its advertisement. I used to have a Mophie Juice Pack for my iphone 4, but got this for my iphone 5. I actually like this case better. I also appreciate that it is Apple approved. You get a lot of charge for your buck with this case. It takes awhile to fully charge the case, but then all these high power cases take awhile. Just charge it overnight and you are set to go in the morning.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works if you take 4, May 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like this vegan option compared to Beano which has fish products in it. But, similar to Beano, the recommended dose doesn't do it. I have to take 4 capsules to have it work effectively. These are the only two anti-gas products I've taken. I'm going to give Bean-zyme a try next.
