A novel resurgence of an old romantic genre. Although vampires, themselves, don’t lend themselves to be endearing characters, Meyer successfully puts them into human-like conflict situations that we can all relate to. In a rare instance, the movie adaptation is better than the book itself because the subtle effect of black/white cannot be translated in a book. Skillful filmmaking on their part, all of which makes for a compelling series of adventures.

Note: I am not an avid bicyclist. I just love to go for a beach ride or trail ride with the kiddos. Everyone asks us about our bike seat and I recommend them. My sweet hubby had no trouble getting them on our bikes, and after a year and a half of owning them they are still in perfect condition. The suspension is what stands out the most!!!!

I “rescued” a HUGE lab mix (notorious for massive shedding issues) when my friend lost his house in a short sale. I agreed to hold the dog for 30 days. A year later and my friend still didn’t have a place for him, and I didn’t really have room for him in my house or my life. I tried to integrate him into another family, and did so at a VERY slow and gentle pace. But on his first over-nighter he wigged out, and tried to let himself out (behavior he never exhibited before) to make his way back to me.
I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that I have to keep the dog, but I just couldn’t get past the fur – EVERYWHERE – including my eyes, nose, mouth, and food. When relaying this to a friend, she told me they’d tried several undercoat brushes/rakes over the years, and then got this as a gift. They said they used their best, similar product first, and then brushed again with The Furminator. She said she was floored by the results. I immediately got online and found an INCREDIBLE deal on Amazon (not available at the time of this writing).
Time is my most precious commodity, and I don’t have ANY to spare. I’ve had the product about 2-3 weeks. In the first week I brushed him for 10-15 minutes each day. I was floored, too. Now I brush him 5-10 minutes about 3x a week, and I’m still pulling out handfuls of dead, trapped undercoat, but less and less as time goes by. I know I’ll never be fur-free, but I’d brush him for 20 minutes twice a day to get these results! The dog looks like he lost 5 pounds, and I keep having to make his collar a little tighter (that’s where he’s really thick and has way too much skin). He hates the heat, we’re in Florida, and since using The Furminator, he tolerates the heat better, for a bit longer.
As for the negative reviews I’ve read? I’d have to guess that people are applying too much pressure. It is kind of hard to fight the urge when you see how quickly the fur accumulates on it (consider the ejector model?), and how you can keep brushing t

This bag bean style holder for your Garmin GPS works amazingly well on any dashboard. I stick it in my travel bag and have used it on many trips all over the US. Take it with you , rent a car place your GPS in there and you are set to visit any city in the USA driving with confidence. This is very stable and really hangs on your dash as if it were a permanently attached holder.

I was a sceptic at first, but wanted to see what all the hub, hub was about. I will admit I did see the first movie before reading the book and liked the movie.Read the book in a day, bought the second, read it in a day, had to have the third and fourth. Loved them all. Don’t believe some of the hype, Jacob a pedophile etc. etc. If he was considered one, I submit Edward could have been considered one also because of his age. This pooey takes away the HEART from the real story…

If this thing was drag and drop and would remember my wifi pass key this would be perfect. But for the price and the problems I’m returning mine.
Plain and simple, this would be much better if not for the pain in the neck itunes software you are forced to use and its odd ways of working. If this was only drag and drop and itunes I would be keeping this player. The web browsing is great, except I often have to retype my network password way to often. And for good security it is long and messy.
The ipod wifi system is not “set it and forget it,” you will need to retype you pass word often and you will need to broadcast your wifi network which lowers your security. The ipod touch can not remember an un-broadcasted wifi system. Even my Wii can do that. Come on Apple. I thought you guys “were” the best. Even Microsoft can pull that one off.
If you have more then one computer as almost every one does, itunes will want to erase all you content on your ipod from your other computer/ itunes program on you ipod before you can add content from your second computer. Come one “Drag and Drop” guys not this junk. Even the simplist mp3 players can do that. I can go to Walmart and for $30 find a 8 gig mp3 player with video and fm tuner that knows how to drag and drop with ease. But not Apple, they are too sexy and wonderful to be so easy and basic.
I was searching for a scale that had an extended weight capacity; which was not an easy endeavor. Many SAID they would do this, or that … then in reading the “fine print” I would find that accuracy, or some other aspect of the product, would be adversely affected if the extended weight were actually utilized.(So whats the point!)
So, when I first read the details of the “EatSmart Precision Digital Scale with Step-On Technology” I wondered if it could really be as accurate, reliable and simple to use as it claimed. Where’s the fine print that negates the promises? Well, let me say that my experience has been phenomenal! The product does ALL it says it can – and the calibration consistently holds an accurate weight when compared to my Doctors office results.
Undoubtedly, the next time I need a health product that EatSmart provides, I will be purchasing it from them. I am exceedingly happy with all aspects of this product and the company’s service; therefore, I feel you will not be misguided in trusting them as well.

This was one of the best Sean Connery movies I have ever seen. I’m a big fan of him and CZJ. I really don’t see why people don’t like it. So what if Sean Connery’s old! I don’t think that interferes with his acting. Just a couple complaints. Too many bad words. This would have been just about perfect if it weren’t for those words. They are just not needed. And THANK YOU for not having any naked scenes. There are just TOO many of those types of movies in this world. I’m putting this movie on my wish list. It’s funny at times and really cool and exciting. No questions asked.
Twilight is my favorite book ever. It combines romance, suspense, danger, and love. Many teens or tweens would love this book. It is perfect for the avid reader or someone who reads once a week. Even my gramndma loves it! My friends and I are so obbsessed it is all we e ver talk about. I don’t know anyone who has read it and not loved it. It is just such a perfect book. I recomend it to anyone 11+. I don’t think I can express how much I love it before you stop reading this and buy it. I’ll just end it on go team Edward!
