5.0 out of 5 stars A Sniper's Shoulder Holster For Your Camera, August 27, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Keeping it simple, this is amazing camera strap for quick and easy access to your (D)SLR. It hangs comfortably and allows for swift camera access when you need it. When you don't the camera simple hangs at your side. The most of the fittings are adjustable so you can make it fit you perfectly For the price, I would have liked a quick release, but the innovative "snakeskin" attachment design with "BLOKKER" makes up for that. The built-in shock absorber is also a great feature. All in all, this is a superbly designed, comfortable camera strap that really shows the engineering quality of its German heritage. As an amateur enthusiast, this strap will likely lead to me carrying a DSLR around more often and not just my cell phone.

1998 Mercedes-Benz SL500
1998 Mercedes-Benz SL500

4.0 out of 5 stars Get The Benz, August 26, 2016
This review is from: 1998 Mercedes-Benz SL500
While I love this car, I have to give it 4 stars. I should probably give it 3. It is 18 years old and imperfect. The hydraulics are currently shot (for the 2nd time) and the lifters in the engine have need work a few times in the past year. The OEM paint job is beginning to wear and many little interior bits need replacing. I have a few other minor niggles including the need to run the car at least every week to keep the battery charged, but come one, why WOULDN'T you want to drive it weekly? But that may not always be an option for every owner. It's a two seater grand touring geared towards the driving enjoyment of driver and passenger. The audio system is still exceptional with a cassette deck and a 6 CD changer in the trunk which some may find rather antiquated.

The engine in this baby is amazing. Moving around in traffic is no problem and it has some major legs on the straightaways. When the convertible top worked it was great, but the back window has discolored and storing the hardtop can be a pain. Still, I think this will be a classic Benz. The maxim "they don't build 'em like this anymore" holds so true for this vehicle. The mechanical guts of it are strong and the body is tank-like in its heft and solidity. One can find a good used one these days and a great price. Snap them up while you can if this vehicle is one you want to invest some time into.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving Our Subie, August 26, 2016
This review is from: 2015 Subaru Impreza
I'm giving this car 5 stars for what it is. It isn't perfect, but for the money, it is a darn good car. We've had ours for about a year here in South Florida and love it. For the most part, it is outstanding and there is very little to complain about. While we own the Sport model, the boxer engine isn't of the WRX variety and could have more *guts*. But once it gets going, it really gets going. It loves cruising at highway speeds, or just puttering around town. The CRV tranny is great for optimizing fuel efficiency and giving you power when it's needed. The paddle shifters are fun and while my wife prefers using them, I just usually let the car choose it's gears.

Handling is amazing on wet or dry roads. Of course, this is coming from someone who drove Chrysler T&C for 10 years, but also a 2005 Passat and 1998 Mercedes 500SL. Because of the all-wheel drive, if you get a flat you may have to get more than one tire, but if you get tire insurance, hopefully cost won't be an issue. And on we roads you're thankful to have that AWD. We've noticed that the windows steam up more easily than in our other cars, but every one has it's quirks. The stock radio and *nerve center* of the car is good, and the audio quality is quite impressive. Driving position is optimal and the vehicle operator has a wide field of vision. It holds a lot for a car its size, but it is compact so you don't expect to load it up overmuch. We have the hatchback and back seats fold forward to open up a lot of space if required. Fit and finish and cabin materials are good, as is the paint job. We love our sunroof too.

I could bore down into the fine details, but suffice to say that this is a great car that my wife and I are very happy with, and have no problem passing along to our daughter in a few years when she comes of driving age. If I were really being objective, I would say this is a 4-star vehicle. But I love it so much I'm giving it 5-stars despite its minor shortcomings.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a quality, energy efficient replacement flood bulb. I am using mine in one of the recessed lights in our kitchen ceiling. It is just as bright as the "old style" incandescents. I would even hazard to say it offers cleaner and more even illumination. I can't speak to the dimmable feature, but it works great as a standard bulb. A bit pricy, but LED costs are slowly coming down and this one isn't bad. If it lasts the rated lifetime, I'll likely never have to replace it for as long as I own my house.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let's Face It, August 25, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
So far it feels good, is non-irritating, absorbs quickly, and has little fragrance. It does appear to "plump" up the skin and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. It remains to be seen if this will be a long term effect. There a lot of serums out on the market right now and while StriVectin initially appears to be a good one, only when the jar is empty will I know if it actually lives up to the hype and substantial price point.

Ride With Me - A Novel
Ride With Me - A Novel

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars A Little Ditty 'Bout Earl And Ruth..., August 23, 2016
This review is from: Ride With Me - A Novel (Paperback)
This is touching tale related primarily by the character Earl is about his life and long love affair with his wife of 50 years Ruth, who eventually passes from brain cancer. That is not s spoiler since Mr. Champan's book is primarily written the the mode of reminiscence. It is a Christian faith oriented book and thus if that isn't a view you're open to, then this may not be the book for you. As a person who was raised Christian but has gone on to follow a modified spiritual path as I've gotten older, this was actually a comforting book to read in that regard. That, and that there is little or no conflict portrayed in its pages the positive message of trusting in the Lord and nurturing the relationships with those you love comes through strongly. Even in adversity and loss.

Never what I would call fast paced, the book takes a little while to pick up steam, especially during the set-up portion that describes Ruth and Earl's early relationship. Once past that though, Author Brett gets into a rhythm and it is easier to lose oneself in the characters and story. Having lived in Okinawa, this story actually held additional interest for me, since a part of it portrays Earl serving there during WW2. But obviously the focus is on the life long love affair between Earl and Ruth and both the trials and good times they met head on. It is an emotional tale that should appeal to readers who are looking for a relationship story with some depth.

This review is from: Chick o Stick, 1LB (Misc.)
Atkinson's CoS Nuggets are dangerously addictive. My office just picked up a tub of Chick-O-Stick them. They are almost too good - I just want to keep popping them in. The nuggets aren't overly healthy though, and high in sodium, so moderation is challenging but important. They taste a bit like the inside of a Butterfinger; crunchy, salty, coconuty and peanut buttery. They make a fun occasional treat if you can limit them to just a few.
