5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to work well!, May 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My husband is an automatic draw for mosquitoes and most other biting bugs. We decided to try this product during a recent kayaking trip to see if we could convince the bugs that he doesn't taste good. Seemed to work--he didn't get one bite! I used almost one large bottle of it to spray 3 long-sleeved "sun block" shirts, 3 t-shirts, and 2 pair of long pants. Also sprayed our suitcase as we are always careful around hotel rooms. Still have enough in the bottle for at least one more shirt, maybe 2. I did not have any problem with the sprayer leaking as several people noted in their reviews. However, I put the spray cap on very tight and keep the bottle upright while spraying. We'll definitely use it again and I've already ordered another bottle to spray my clothing for an upcoming hike in Alaska.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff!, May 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product is very tasty but the thing we like best about it is that it has stevia as a sweetner and not all those chemical things. Lots of the whey products are tasty, but almost all the rest have chemical sweetners or sugar in them. The price on this product is also very reasonable. We do not use it "plain", but mix it with frozen fruit, 2 bananas, and water in our Ninja for a lunchtime smoothie. Umm, Umm good!


Water Gardening In Containers: Small Ponds Indoors & Out
Water Gardening In Containers: Small Ponds Indoors & Out
by Helen Nash
Edition: Paperback
67 used & new from $0.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Ideas., January 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Short, but lots of good ideas for container water gardening. Good information for a beginner, but probably not enough for an experienced water gardener. Nice selection of water plants reviewed, but the ideas and different types of containers used in the illustrated water gardens are the real jewels of this book. I liked the section on carnivorous plants too! And making a paludarium. Never heard of a paludarium? I hadn't either. Read the book!


Bonsai Beginner's Guide: Selection, Care, Training
Bonsai Beginner's Guide: Selection, Care, Training
Price: $0.99

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but not great., January 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is OK, but don't expect to be able to go out and create bonsai after reading it. Has some good information for a raw beginner to bonsai, especially if you are trying to decide whether or not you'd like to try bonsai. But beyond that it is pretty thin.


Country Notes NICARAGUA
Country Notes NICARAGUA
Price: $0.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and Concise!, January 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Kind of a "Cliff Notes" on Nicaragua. Thought it might be interesting as it was by the CIA, but if this is all the information they give their operatives down there, I worry about them. Still, for the average person, it is a good, short history of the country and its politics. The price was right.

The Swamp: The Everglades, Florida, and the Politics of Paradise
by Michael Grunwald
Edition: Paperback
Price: $11.24

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reading, January 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you are interested in Florida politics, the Florida everglades, the environmental effects of man on the everglades, etc., this is a book you definitely need to read. Mr. Grunwald covers the history and politics of the Florida everglades thoroughly and in a manner that anyone can understand. Reading this book before a trip to the everglades will increase your understanding of the area and how it functions, as well as giving you a greater appreciation of what is truly one of the great wonders of the world.

Learn Excel 2010 Essential Skills with The Smart Method: Courseware Tutorial for Self-Instruction to Beginner and Intermediate Level
by Mike Smart
Edition: Paperback
Price: $15.29
41 used & new from $9.93

5.0 out of 5 stars The Smart Method is Smart!, January 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An excellent book for anyone trying to master (or just learn how to use) Excel. Easy to follow instructions in small chunks that even I can digest. And once you've completed the lessons, it is an excellent reference for when you forget how to do something. Short and to the point! No fancy explanations. Just how to do...whatever. Highly recommended for the computer user who does not want the theory of how the thing works, just instruction on how to make it work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great clock!, January 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We love this clock. It can be cumbersome to set the alarm, but follow the steps one by one and you'll do it. Our favorite item on the clock it the projection of the time on the ceiling--how have we done without it! No more trying to find the clock face in the middle of the night to see how long you've been laying awake--just look up! And the nature sounds are nice too!

A rather boring and belabored "travel hippy-style". If she really did travel like this it is amazing that she survived to write the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat Book!, January 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An interesting little book. I didn't know what to expect and bought it on a whim, but it does have good photos and information. Small enough to carry around the lawn or garden easily. I don't agree with all Ms. Gift's ideas on "good weeds", but that does not detract from my enjoyment of her writing style or the usefulness of the book for weed identification.
