I'm a semi-retired employee relations and business consultant, and have been in practice for 34 years. Published 4 books, numerous journal articles, but derive the biggest kick out of having my nature photos published. A very few get my humor, and yet I have a small fan club.
I also write a humorous blog in tandem with posting (P&S) nature photographs on another web site, both just for fun.
Nature photography, writing, crosswords, etymology, and generally just playing with words. And then there are my two daughters and two grandkids... and my sons-in-law. Yes, all of them are great.
Overlord Toys sent me this set to review, and what better way than to give it to my 5 year old grandson for one of his birthday presents. DVDs, cars, and Legos (of course!), but he went nuts over these dinosaurs and played with them for hours. He certainly hasn't tired of them, and now his dad is teaching him what each one is (as soon as he looks them up). That should keep them both busy for quite a while.

My wife and I have used Month-At-A-Glance since the early 60s. There's nothing like it. A full month with boxes big enough to write in two or three appointments and notes.

After all my kids are 3# and 4# although I do have to look up their addresses for which we have an address book. (Well, we recycle, so we'd be tossing out a lot of work if… Read more
I said I wouldn't buy these again, but this is my third order in 4 years. They burn out or get really flaky and start flickering as if they can't figure out day from night after just 3-4 months. But while they work, they're just what we need to light part of the kitchen and a half-bath that is in perpetual darkness.
We bought longer lasting night lights - about 8 of them, but do not like the harsh (even at 2 watts) blue-white cast. Further, these swivel so you can point them in any direction: the others do not.
