The Third Door: The Wild Quest to Uncover How the World's Most Successful People Launched Their Careers
The Third Door: The Wild Quest to Uncover How the World's Most Successful People Launched Their Careers
Reading The Third Door changed my life. I really don’t know how to say it otherwise, and frankly struggle with words to describe how deeply the book has affected me since. As a college student myself, we are often fed generic pieces of advice as to how to obtain success and achieve the life of our dreams. “Don’t give up!” “Keep the faith” “Do what you love.” At times, the noise can become overwhelming, and more importantly, outdated!!!!!! In the age of the internet, so many things have changed! The Third Door tells the philosophies of both young and new entrepreneurs, from Bill Gates and Elliot Bisnow, about how they achieved ravishing success and what skills we can learn from their journeys.

Case in point: How do you separate yourself from thousands of other candidates applying online for a job? How do you gain mentors and find allies in business? How do you develop a network when you are just starting off and do not know anyone? How does one approach someone (either in person or online) and appear ambitious as opposed to simply unprofessional? How do you write a proper email? Is there a such thing as being over-persistent? If so, what is the line? How do you bounce back from rejection? Or create momentum for a project you are passionate about? What is the difference between a linear life and an exponential life? How can you create the latter? How do you "find your passion" or "follow your bliss?" Infiltrate echelons of business where you may be able to make an impact?

If the internet has produced a new wave of teachers, authors, and influencers, then Alex is the guru for us all - not just millennials, but ALL people seeking to achieve their dreams. The reason? What the Third Door provides more than anything is INFORMATION & ACCESS. Access to the personal anecdotes of some of the greatest leaders and innovators of our time, and sheer information - details about their path, past failures, practical (seriously practical) pieces of advice that anyone may apply in their own journey respective. These skills are transferrable no matter what you seek to do and will help you work smarter, not harder- giving you tools to achieve your wildest dream in a shorter span of time. In fact, it is a book you will need to read many times over to fully absorb its wisdom and one which I am so grateful to have found as early as I did. Thank you Alex for undertaking this journey to help us all succeed in greater and more meaningful ways. Your persistent emailing, crouching in bathrooms, chasing after some of the most brilliant people of our time is to have been well worth it.
Mustard Seed Faith: Mountain-Moving Ideas to Change Your Life by Changing the Lives of Others
Mustard Seed Faith: Mountain-Moving Ideas to Change Your Life by Changing the Lives of Others
This book is thoughtful and evocative . As a friend of the author , I would love to give it 5 stars but I have to apply the iceberg principle which says that 90% is never seen . Eric's vision of the world we need to improve is flawed only in so far as thinking that so many people don't feel the same way he does . Perhaps it is my naivete that leads me to believe that most people are not ships of war but rather ships without rudders . To that extent , Eric offers beautiful and constructive ideas on how to help people find their rudder by reflecting the love of Christ in our own behavior . I hope that most people are not motivated by self aggrandizement but rather , they are fearful of the pain of rejection . We can all share Eric's hope but not if we think so many people are hopeless . Jesus taught us to leave the 99 to search for the one . I hope that everyone reading this book feels moved to touch at least one life and plant a mustard seed of hope in the life of another soul for hope is the seed from which faith grows .
Rubie's Adult Character Costume Wig
Rubie's Adult Character Costume Wig
This was a pretty good find for our use. A few things to note:

- It does run small. I works well for my almost 9 year old son's St. Francis of Assisi costume.

- Out of the package, it sheds a lot of hair. I had to pick at it for a while to make sure all of the loose hairs were gone.
That being said, there is a LOT of hair so this shedding isn't necessarily a problem (except for having hair fall on your neck...). In fact, I cut a lot of the inner layers off to thin it out a bit.

- The hair is long, especially on the back and sides. It runs about 2" longer in back and 1" longer on the sides compared to the wig's netting. The extra hair on my son's neck bothered him a lot so I cut it off to be even with the netting of the wig. That being said, this may help if an adult wanted to wear this. As long as they could somehow keep it on, the long hair in back would cover where the small netting does not. I included a picture of the wig AFTER I trimmed quite a bit of hair on the sides and back (and a bit in front). For perspective, the wig is on a small children's ball, though it's not fully stretched out.

- The bald spot on top is much smaller than pictured. Again, fine for our purposes for fitting a child, but it may be a problem for an adult. You can see this in the picture as well.

In the end, you get what you pay for. Not a bad find for $8 and will work well for what we need it for.

ProChef 14-inch Teflon Pizza Tray, Graphite by
I started making my own pizza dough/pizza c 6 months ago and used an existing general rectangular oven tray which was OK but sometimes left the baked pizza a bit soggy in the middle.
I bought this hoping that it would help with more evenly spreading the heat. I've used this 4/5 times now and find it does as I hoped- the pizza is more evenly cooked. It's also very easy to clean, just needs a quick rinse in soapy water. I cant vouch for durability yet but it seems to be wearing well (though I do heed the warning re not cutting the pizza whilst still on the tray). It seems competitively priced too.
Looking forward to many more tasty, nicely baked pizzas.

The secret ways
The secret ways
"The Secret Ways" was a very significant work for Scottish author Alistair MacLean. His fourth novel out of an eventual 29, it was his first to feature a Cold War, espionage-type story, after three successive novels dealing with WW 2 adventure (1955's "H.M.S. Ulysses," 1957's "The Guns of Navarone" and that same year's "South by Java Head"). It was also the first MacLean novel to be given the big-screen treatment; the film version, released in April 1961 and starring Richard Widmark (miscast, I feel), beat "The Guns of Navarone" to the theaters by two months. And, if the host of the Alistair MacLean website is to be believed, it is the author's very best novel, and one that "catches MacLean at peak form." Originally released in the U.K. in 1959 under the title "The Last Frontier," the book was later renamed for its U.S. release. Both titles are ambiguous and unsatisfactory, it seems to me, especially since the novel itself is such a slam-bang thrill ride that features taut suspense, a realistic story, well-drawn characters and some stunning action sequences.

In the book, British secret agent Michael Reynolds is given a well-nigh impossible assignment. He must sneak into Communist Hungary, which at the time is being gripped by the worst winter weather in modern history, and somehow spirit back to freedom the English scientist Harold Jennings, the world's foremost expert on ballistic missiles. Jennings had been coerced to defect after the kidnapping of his wife and son, and is soon due to give a speech damning the West at a scientific convention in Budapest. Reynolds is aided in his mission by several members of the revolutionary underground, including their leader, Jansci; Jansci's daughter Julia, with whom the stolid Reynolds falls in love; the remarkably cool and efficient Polish character known as the Count; Sandor, a gentle but massively muscled ox of a man; and the youthful, whip-wielding Cossack. And Reynolds is going to need all the help he can get on this mission, as the Communists' spies are seemingly everywhere, and one misstep could land him in the hands of the dreaded AVO...the Hungarian secret police, which makes the Nazi Gestapo come off like a bunch of pansies....

"The Secret Ways" boasts at least four scenes that are sure to please fans of action/adventure fare. In the first, Reynolds and Jansci are forced to undergo a peculiar form of torture in an AVO prison, first dosed with actedron, mescaline and a new experimental drug and then placed into a steam room for the duration of their "trip." In another sequence, Reynolds must traverse the top and sides of a barreling locomotive, in a blinding and subfreezing blizzard (!), to effect the rescue of Prof. Jennings. In the third, our band of heroes faces off against the cunning Colonel Hidas and his AVO men on either side of a frozen river. And finally, there is the awesome spectacle of man mountain Sandor in a fight to the death with the even more massive AVO sadist Coco. These well-spaced action sequences alternate with scenes of great suspense (Reynolds infiltrating the Budapest hotel where Jennings is being held, for example) and interesting political discussions, during which Jansci gets to expound wisely on the desirability of peace and understanding in this crazy world. Surprisingly enough, although the Communists and the AVO are clearly the "bad guys" in MacLean's novel, the author takes pains to make us understand that the Russian people themselves are not to blame; as Jansci remarks, they are "likable, cheerful, and gay...there are no friendlier people on earth." The underground leader helps us understand the paranoid Communist leaders' mentality (even anticipating the Cuban missile crisis of two years later), and later gives Jennings, in an oral disquisition that takes up five full pages, a moving argument on the necessity for coexistence. Thus, though written at the height of the Cold War, "The Secret Ways" is refreshingly, almost startlingly modern in its political bent, evincing a forward-thinking mentality on MacLean's part that gives his finely written page-turner a right-on spirit.

Excellent as "The Secret Ways" may be, it yet comes freighted with a number of minor problems. For one thing, many of the characters speak almost too beautifully to admit of realism (Jansci's off-the-cuff political monologue is remarkably well composed and expressed), while some scenes (I am thinking most especially of that harrowing locomotive sequence) can be a tad hard to visualize. Surprisingly, MacLean even manages to bungle a few stated facts during the course of his novel. The AVO was disbanded in Hungary in 1956, yet seems to be fully functional in this book's post-Hungarian Revolution (of 1956). Similarly, the Polish UB (that country's secret police) is referenced as being fully operational, although it too had been, at that point, disbanded; in this case, in 1954. The distance from Budapest to the Polish city of Stettin is said to be 1,000 miles, whereas a casual look at a map reveals that it is only half that. (OK, I just researched this more closely...it is 465 miles.) Finally, to add to this nitpicking, the author makes reference to the famous Red Army commander of WW 2, Konstantin "Rossokovsky"; that should be "Rokossovsky." But these are minor matters that should in no wise interfere with any reader's thrills as he/she gets sucked into the action and adventure of this genuinely exciting piece of work. So is "The Secret Ways" MacLean's best novel, as mentioned up top? Well, this reader has only experienced three others--1961's "The Black Shrike," 1962's "The Satan Bug" and 1963's "Ice Station Zebra"--and based on that small sampling, I would have to say yes, if only marginally. And that simply means that Cold War thrillers don't come much better....
Deadly Reckoning (Devil's Shroud Book 1)
Deadly Reckoning (Devil's Shroud Book 1)
This book was so good. Kayla was being targeted by a serial killer who played games with his prey before he actually killed him. He almost killed her once, and she barely escaped. After her attack she moved to Cap Code to heal. She started being taunted again, not knowing if it was the same person that hurt her before.... Shortly after moving to Cap Code she met Gabe that was a handsome deputy. He was also a single father. He just found out he had a son named DaKota a few months before. The story tells of how they met, and the hardships they face as they try to form a relationship. DaKota is a teen facing his own problems. I loved this story, and the charactors tugged at my heart. The action kept me at the edge of my seat. This is a book that will be hard to put down once you start reading!

Sample from chapter 6
Her gaze shot to the mirror and her face lost all color. "Kayla? What happened next? "That." She raised a hand, her finger pointed at the mirror. In the fading moisture on the glass, Gabe read the message, his heart sinking to his knees. If he'd had any doubt before that the killer was after her, he didn't now. He gathered the woman in his arms and held her while silent sobs shook her body. Anger surged through him, making him want to strike out, to hunt down this man who frightened women in a very sick game. Especially this sensitive beauty who would never hurt a soul. Whatever it took, he'd find the bastard. And when he did, he'd never let him hurt Kayla - or any other woman - ever again.

I don’t spend much time cooking, and when I do the end result is usually a baked on mess on my pots and pans. I love anything that makes cleaning up easier. The “Black and Decker Grimebuster Pro Rechargeable Power Scrubber” makes cleaning up a breeze.

The “Black and Decker Grimebuster Pro Rechargeable Power Scrubber with Charging Stand” is an attractive addition to any kitchen. It comes with two replaceable heads, a bristle brush head and sponge, that are ideal for cleaning all surfaces around your home, not just your dishes.

Storing sponges and scrubbers can be a pain. The “Grimebuster Pro” comes with a stand for easy storing which . It is sleek in it’s design, fitting well into any decor. I thought the stand had non-slip pads on the bottom, but they are actually stickers that will permanently fix the stand to your counter. The stand also lacks a place to store the extra head.

The stand is also a charging dock. To charge your “Grimebuster Pro” simply hang it in the docking station until you are ready to use it.

The handle on the “Grimebuster Pro” is has a long handle which helps keep your hands away from any messes. It has a comfortable feel in my hand.

Down a star because of the belt, it is 38” on my XL order. My guess is that they send the same belt no matter what size you order. I am ordering a different belt.
The stitching for the sequins is a little scratchy but let’s be honest, it’s a novelty item. It’s made for looks not comfort.
Arrived pretty wrinkly, I’m not sure how to handle this with a novelty (and likely fragile) garment. I’m hanging it up and hoping for the best.
$60 seems pricey for what you get. Depends on it’s value to you I guess. One would hope for more comfort at this price. I might end up backing the sequin sewing with felt or flannel spots.

Overall, pleased with the arm length and appearance. I have super long arms (6’ arm span) and the sleeve length is fine.
