La Crosse Technology 403 310F Wildlife

La Crosse Technology 403 310F Wildlife

I live in a smaller condominium unit and my bedroom serves the purpose of my in-home office as well where I spend a lot of time on my computer. My LED alarm clock/radio just is not visible to me when I'm laying in bed and many times when I awake during the night, I like to know what time it is. This deer clock's image in the ad on amazon.com does not do this item justice(!)--The image viewed close up almost makes one think of a 3-D photo (in my opinion) as the face of the clock has better clarity than in the ad and the white hands when not lit during the day makes seeing the time of day easier than if they were black.Yes...the outer rim of the clock "is" plastic, but from a few feet away, it looks pretty rich. It "finally," got dark this evening (my 1st day of receiving this clock!) and I had my doubts that it would work, but after I shut down my computer's monitor, I could see the green colored hands "glowing!" To be honest, I did not like how in the product description it stated that this clock would appeal to deer hunters as I'm "BUCK" shy--meaning I would never shoot a deer, but the flip side is that the clock really depicts the true "beauty" of deer. I just heard today on a nature show that when the deer's young fawns are born, they have very little detectable scent to protect them from predators. The only drawbacks to this fine clock is that it "does" require 4 AA batteries--"3" just for the illuminated hands. These 3 batteries should last a long time as the light feature is LED "and" the clock has a light sensor to preserve energy when there is enough light to see the clock's face. There are other background images available for these lighted dial La Crosse Technology clocks and even a plain white dial. Thanks amazon.com!

George Pal's 1953 adaptation of H.G. Well's "The War of the Worlds" is a terryfying and beautifully-crafted sci-fi horror/thriller. While it lacks some of the emotional impact of the novel, the visual effects (which look as fantastic today as they did in 1953) and terrific acting by Gene Barry and Ann Robinson more than make up for it, and are the reasons that this movie has become the classic that it is!

The new DVD release presents the film with great sound-and-picture quality. The extras (Which include a fantastic making-of documentary, two commentaries, the 1938 Orson Welles radio play, and a rather dissappointing featurette on H.G. Wells) are good, but not great.

"The War of the Worlds" is great entertainment. Fans of the film, and of Wells' original novel, will not be dissappointed.

Worth Every Penny...Gorgeous!

16 Count Variety Brewers Hawaiian

16 Count Variety Brewers Hawaiian

I have a soft spot when it comes to books with damaged characters. Okay, admittedly it may be considered more of an addiction. I love to read about heartache and how a person who is beaten and broken can pull themselves together and rise above.

Gabby is broken in a heart-wrenching way. After she loses a piece of her life, and herself, she moves cross-country to start over. Or so she believes. Really Gabby has become numb, living her life just to live it.

When she accidentally stumbles upon Brad, something stirs inside of Gabby. He's sweet and funny, and there's something about his easygoing lifestyle that draws her in. And then there's Dane, barging into her life with his bright green eyes and killer body. He's sexy and successful, and he happens to be interested in her.

But what Gabby really needs more than anything right now is a friend. Someone to pick up the pieces and help her place them back together. Someone that can help her begin to heal her damaged heart before she can find love again.

I LOVED LOVED this book! Beth Michele made me feel Gabby's pain, her desire to move on with her life, and her reluctance to let go of the past. For anyone who has ever lost a loved one, this story will pull at your heartstrings. Captivating and emotional with laugh out loud moments, Love Love drew me in and enchanted me until the last page.

I have to mention a side character, Gabby's best friend and roommate, Fran. I loved her so much! I connected with Fran on a personal level and adored her quirky sense of humor, as well as her hunger for the opposite sex.

Overall, this was a truly amazing read that gave me what I look for in a good book--sweet romance with a HEA.

Great Value

Logitech S120 2 0 Multimedia Speakers

Logitech S120 2 0 Multimedia Speakers

Once in a while a company will manufacture a truly excellent product, then sell it at a bargain basement price. That marketing strategy captures the favorable attention of the mass of consumers, and is thus profitable in the long run. Logitech displays that fine strategy with its S120 speakers, which are inexpensive but first-rate.
As a fan of classical music, which has the widest range of dynamics and frequency, I can recognize good speakers when I hear them; and the S120's are among the best. They catch every aspect of the music beautifully. Far from being "tinny," as a few tone-deaf reviewers have suggested, the S120's have a rather mellow tone, with just an underlying hint of crispness. They can do justice to any music that I'm familiar with, no matter what the instruments or combo.
Finally, these miniature speakers even look appealing: they've a nice, subtle line about them, which looks good beside a laptop. In brief, the S120's constitute a rarity among accessories: they're actually a wise purchase.

Best Ear Plugs I have found

Quiet Time Comfort Foam Plugs

Quiet Time Comfort Foam Plugs

If used how I used them--rolled really tight then jammed deep down into your ears (pull your ears around a bit to find best angle)--these work AMAZINGLY well from my experience. They are the highest NRR I could find online or in stores: 33. I used to contemplate moving out of my apartment in Brookly--uprooting my whole life--until I found these earplugs. I was miserable--I live in a neighborhood with lots of loud parties that go until late in the night. These have been a life saver. I do worry that I have them jammed in to deep and am causing long-term damage. I read that tinnitus can be result from excessive ear plug use. I only use them at night--but that's a solid eight hours in my ears each day. I might book an appt to see a doctor just to ensure all is good with my ears. I would hate to give up my earplugs.

Another solid product from a great company!

Certified By Apple Packaging Friendly

Certified By Apple Packaging Friendly

First of all let me say I am and will continue to be cautious when ordering cables for an apple device. We have 6 such devices in this home alone and are always in need of a longer cable or a more improved cable for charging or connecting to a PC. And the last few times I have ordered replacement cables I have been lees than satisfied. Once again I was faced with my grand-kids needing replacement cables. SO once again I go searching for a suitable replacement and maybe hit on a good deal.

I saw the offer for the three pack from a vendor named The Friendly Swede. The images in the item listing looked like they were well built and with good connectors. But anyone who is familiar with these cables, not all images are very good at representing the actual product. And on top of the images, the price was very reasonable, so I ordered them.

Got them very fast as a Prime member with no delays at all. The very first thing I noticed was the packaging. Very heavy duty clean looking, and the cables were in plain view, wound evenly and very professionally looking. All this was before I even opened the packaging. The second thing I noticed was the actual "feel" of the cable itself. I have been working in electronics my entire life. I am 62 now and I feel like I am qualified to say when I see a well made cable with well made material. The cable is of great quality, the connectors are of good solid material, with connecting sleeves that protect the weakest areas of the cable. And they work as stated for the devices as stated.

If there is a con at all, it is the connector is too large and will NOT fit into opening of the Lifeproof cases on the iPhone4s. To me that's a small thing because I do not like the Lifeproof cases at all because no case should tell you its ok to put an iPhone or iPod under water. That is a totally ignorant way to market an expensive device.

SO if you need to charge a device with a Lifeproof case, maybe these cables are not for you. You can seek out the cables with the small and narrow connector so as to fit in the charging port of the Lifeproof case.

I still give these 5 stars because they do what they say they do, and they are very well constructed and for the first time in a years worth of seeking out replacement cables, these are the best I have found to date!

Love this bed skirt, a great buy

Red Nomad Double Brushed Microfiber

Red Nomad Double Brushed Microfiber

What a wonderful bed skirt. We bought the duvet set as well from Red Nomad and we just love the combo. My husband didn't want anything to feminine and the whole set is perfect. The color is this beautiful ivory color and the length of the skirt is perfect to cover our bed frame which is this ugly steel frame. No fading or running after washing it and did not have any leave a bunch of lint. The bed skirt is great and matches. Also this lighter ivory color is great for a bed skirt because dust tends to collect on the floor and ivory tends to show less dust and so on. I try to clean as much as I can but sometimes dust just tends to collect under and around the bed. As for shipping it came very quickly and free if you spend over $25 which is why we bought some pillowcases as well.

Excellent skin care

basis Sensitive Cleans Soothes 4 Ounce

basis Sensitive Cleans Soothes 4 Ounce

I have tried and tried over the years to find a bar soap that won't cause me splotches and doesn't have a fragrance that bothers my chemical sensitivities. This is the one!!!! I am so excited that I found this. Usually the fragrance free bars either have some strong smell (to me) or they aren't worth a flip. This one has a very very light nice scent...it's almost imperceptible, actually it probably is to others who don't have nose that smells and is allergic to everything! Had I known it had even a hint of a scent, I wouldn't have bought it because I would have thought that it would break me out. So don't let it deter you. Not even a hint of redness after I bathe. This soap is fabulous and I highly recommend it!!!

UPDATE: 3 1/2 years later and this is still the only soap bar I use! It's wonderful and I don't get nearly as many rashes as I used to. I just can't say enough how grateful I am I found this soap. BTW...One thing I didn't say before is that it lathers much better than a lot of other "natural" or "sensitive" soap bars.

Worth a Try

Petmate LeBistro Portion Automatic Pet

Petmate LeBistro Portion Automatic Pet

When I first read all the reviews for this product I wasn't certain it would work, but we have two fat cats and my husband and I have a crazy schedule where we were both accidentally feeding them.

Portion Size: After reading that the portions were incorrect I figured that I could make my own little adjustments, but to my surprise all the portions were correct! I did the manual feed about 5 times on each and they were VERY consistent.

Smart Cats: Both of the feeders had a door on them where your cat could not reach in and get more food. I was relieved to see this since one of our cats is borderline genius.

Timer: The timer is really accurate, but it did take me some time to get them both synced up exactly.

They are very sturdy and the bowl even locks into the machine so cats can't pull it away and then make a mess.

In theory it holds about enough food for 14 days (I'm feeding them 1/4 3xday) but I found that it lasts anywhere from 28-30 days (depending on how full I cram it).

All in all I really love the machine and it works perfect now that they have fixed all the flaws!

Great mattress for price

Signature Sleep 6 Inch Memory Mattress

Signature Sleep 6 Inch Memory Mattress

It is really difficult to find sturdy, low-cost sandals for active, outside-loving girls once they get past a certain age (size). Each year, it is a battle to find decent-looking sandals that will hold up to the abuse my kids give them. While this sandal cost more than I want to spend (since I have five kids), it seems like it will hold up for the whole summer. The kids have been wearing them daily for almost a month so far - four months to go!

These provide some cushion, are easy to get on and off, and grip my kids' feet tightly when running and playing. So far, I'm very pleased with the value for the money. The skid-resistance seems like enough as well.

One of my kids has the "black/white" (red inner) color ones and another has the "black/royal" (blue inner) color.
-----
Updated after two months: These are still going strong. They clean up pretty well, have held their color(s), and so far are holding together great.
-----
Updated after five months: These have lasted from spring all the way through until fall. While they aren't overly stylish, they are definitely worth the money and have held up great!

Does the Job

Doubler Plush 24488 Bed

Doubler Plush 24488 Bed

I used this along with steam treatment and bed encasements/isolation to combat a mild/moderate bed bug infestation. I have seen no bugs and received no bites for over two weeks. I have no trouble sleeping now after freaking out when I first discovered the infestation. I went to great lengths to research bugs and take the right steps to defend against them because their survivability is amazing. Also, I live in an apartment unit, so there is hope for people who are not fortunate enough to live in a detached home.

When using the product take proper precautions not to breathe the powder (it will be fine once it settles). You should only need to apply a light amount of powder in key areas (bed frame, box spring, mattress piping, surrounding furniture, wall outlets, picture frames, shelves, cracks, crevices, etc.) and bed bugs may avoid large clumps of it. You might not see it but have faith, it will kill. The bottle is easy to use - I shake it a little to get rid of clumps and then squeeze it parallel to the floor to get a light amount of dust.

Overall it is a great product and an essential tool for bed bug eradication. Even though bed bugs will travel from room to room and possibly unit to unit in apartment settings, you can use this to ensure that they die in the process. Good luck to anyone with a bed bug problem (or any other bug). I will post updates on mine.

Update: Smooth sailing for almost two months. We found two bed bugs within two weeks, in the bathroom of all places. It was daytime and they were out in the open, so they were probably starved. Not sure if they were hiding from before treatment or if they came from another apartment unit. Either way, no confirmed bites and no signs of reinfestation.

Update 2: Still no sign of bed bugs and it has been months. I highly recommend this for anyone who has a bug problem or wants to take preventive measures. Just be careful to use a very small amount and do not breathe it in (once it settles it is fine).

Dream On Me Graco Mattress

Dream On Me Graco Mattress

This mattress perfectly fits my Graco Pack N Play. After reading a bunch of review last summer, I was so confused about the sizes of the mattresses and all the different names. I ended up buying the Dream on Me Portable Crib mattress for a vacation, and it fit lengthwise but was too short width-wise. I just rolled up a towel and shoved it in the gap and my son was fine. However, I just tried that with my 7 month old daughter a week ago and I woke up at 2 am with her wedged into the gap and the sheet pulled off that part of the mattress. So, I ordered the Dream on Me Pack N Play mattress and it is 2 inches wider and fits PERFECTLY. No gaps. I bought a portable crib sheet for it and that is the right size. Get this one instead of the Portable Crib mattress if you have a Graco. I'm not sure what the other 2 reviews were talking about on this product- I wish I had just bought this one last year.
