Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money - That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!
Rich Dad Poor Dad: What the Rich Teach Their Kids About Money - That the Poor and Middle Class Do Not!
This is an enhanced reprint of the original, with additional study questions/ discussion and review added at the end of every chapter. I bought the original about 18 years ago and it changed my families destiny for the better. I am glad the reprint came out as it prompted me to reread it and deepen my understanding.
Some people complain that this book does not give a step by step process for change. I would counter that one size shoe does not fit all feet. There are many individual paths to wealth, and Kiyosaki sets the guiding stars to navigate by, but you have to walk your own individual road.

Some key concepts of this book are: 1) Assets put money in your pocket even when you are on vacation. Liabilities take money out of your pocket, therefore your house is a liability [unless you rent out rooms and the garage as one person I know did while rebuilding his asset base].
2) Wealthy people buy assets first, and then let their assets buy their luxuries from the surplus cash flow.
3) Wealthy people continuously increase their assets by reinvesting their surplus cash flow in more assets.
4) There are 3 primary asset classes: Real Estate, Businesses, and Paper assets (stocks bonds notes, etc)
5) Cash Flow is more important than Net Worth. Net Worth is similar to potential energy, to use it you have to spend it, then it is gone. Cash Flow is like power from a hydroelectric dam, constantly replenished.
The rich don't work for money, they work for assets.
The tax laws are fair from the standpoint that the laws that the rich spent billions of dollars to have modified and interpreted apply to everyone who learns how to use them.

A great foundation book for beginning to improve your financial intelligence so that you don't work 4 or more month's of every year for the Tax man, more months for the banks that hold your mortgage and credit cards, and whatever is left making the company you work for wealthy. Good luck on your journey to being Rich, poor, or middle class.
The Rule: How I Beat the Odds in the Markets and in Life - and How You Can Too
The Rule: How I Beat the Odds in the Markets and in Life - and How You Can Too
I believe I am the first person to review this book who has actually purchased it. So, this review has no bias but my own and is totally independent.

It is important to state, this book does not provide you with exact rules saying you must buy here, sell here, place a stop here and diversify across these specific markets, and so on. So, please do not think you are buying a set of exact "Rules" in a list format. Fortunately, these tactics are not shared with us as the majority of us would not stick to it or understand its purpose.

It is even more important to know the strategies Mr. Hite uses and continues to use are shared with us. Following the trend, cutting losses, diversify to reduce risk and catch trends are shared with examples. This gives us the ability to design a system which we will stick to and can be profitable. As long as we use the mentioned fundamental "Rules". My own backtesting as shown this to be true.

There is plenty of information provided in this book which personally gives me more ideas to test and improve my own systems. It also provides ideas which I never even considered. "Thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience".

The book tells us how Mr. Hite applied trend following strategies not just in the market but in life. Can you really be a trend follower in the markets but not in your personal life? Will there be a greater chance of internal conflict which may break your rules if you are not?

The additional advantage of reading this book is that it fills in the gap to Mr. Hites interviews in Market Wizards, also, the information provided by Alex Greyserman in Trend Following with Managed Futures and Mr. Covel series of books such as Trend Following and Trend Commandments, and many other books. This was really helpful to me as I had a lot of questions I felt on Mr. Hite could answer. This book has answered a lot of those questions.

I would rate this book amongst Edwin Lefevre - Reminiscences Of A Stock Operator, Nicolas Darvas - How I Made $2,000,000 In The Stock Market, Michael W. Covel - Trend Following, and Jack D. Schwager - Market Wizards.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone beginning or experienced in trading.

Thank you Mr. Hite. The book was well written and very clear.
I Hear You: The Surprisingly Simple Skill Behind Extraordinary Relationships
I Hear You: The Surprisingly Simple Skill Behind Extraordinary Relationships
This was a lovely quick read, and I would highly recommend it. It only took me two days of light reading to finish as the book is refreshingly short. Having studied psychology and being more than a little bit obsessed with all things related to therapy, I have seen this skill practiced in the most effective therapists. On my normal day-to-day interactions with people…not so much.

So take a moment to think about the people that you love being around the most. Why do you love being around them? Obviously they’re awesome. Part of that awesomeness though is derived from the both of you being able for feel heard and cared for by one another. The best and quickest way to achieve that mutual form of love and understanding is through validation. Michael Sorenson uses charming stories to illustrate the overwhelming benefits and concise steps to create a practical approach that you can use in your everyday interactions. After having read it I’ve found myself trying to be more cognizant of times when I have the opportunity to validate a friend or a family member. While it has only been a week, it has certainly been helpful. The best part is that it is incredibly simple too.

Quite a bit of the research utilized in the book is from John Gottman who is world-renowned for his research on relationships and what makes them work. If you are looking for books to read in an effort to improve your interpersonal relationships, whether it’s work, dating, marriage, etc., I would say there are 3 main books/authors to turn to. I Hear You- by Michael Sorenson, Hold Me Tight- by Sue Johnson (leading researcher/ developer of EFT), and The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work- by John Gottman. Combining the information of all three books will really provide the best tools for you to use in your relationships and give you the best results.

There are only two things that I would complain about. 1) I would have loved to see references listed on the back so I could look into some of the studies that were mentioned in greater depth. This isn’t a problem for the average reader, just for people like me who want to dig into the research that was listed. 2) I would have loved more of the author’s insight on self-validation, but maybe we can save that for another book. ;-)

Please enjoy this wonderful book and all the insight it provides. You really will see an improvement once you implement it in your life.

Happy reading!

The Oprah Winfrey Show: Reflections on an American Legacy
The Oprah Winfrey Show: Reflections on an American Legacy
This book is about the height and length of two books. It takes two hands to read, but it is worth the effort for any Oprah fan or even a fan of beautiful photography. I can't comment enough about the grandeur and awe-inspiring splendor of the book - it's huge and comforting photos of people we've all come to know and love, the memories garnered up when seeing Oprah at her finest on the stage of the Oprah Show. I have never read a book this stunning.

The book is, of course, about Oprah Winfrey, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and about some of the things that she's tried to teach and have definitely learned throughout her tenure as a talk show host. There are also testimonials as to what Oprah has meant to people and cultures over the past 25 years. For example, there is a statement made by the great Henry Louis Gates Jr. which tells of how he first heard of Oprah and why she is so important in his life personally. He gave the experience of when Oprah visited the PBS stage to have her ancestry researched in "African American Lives." It was a remarkable page of information, and Mr. Gates Jr. stood tall as a beautifully artistic portrait on the next page almost watching you as you read with the proverbial `family' tree behind him.

This book is an experience! A must have for any Oprah fan!!!

If Not for You
If Not for You
1970年発表の『新しい夜明け』の冒頭を飾る、If Not For You。多くの有名なカバーは初期バージョンの歌詞で歌われていますが、この絵本では、ディラン本人の最終バージョンが一字一句変えずに、そのまま使われています(正確に言えば、My sky would fallで始まる繰り返しの部分は省いていますが)。

にもかかわらず、ページを繰れば、この絵本は、ディランのIf Not For Youの、最も大胆で斬新なカバーであることがすぐに分かります。なぜかと言えば、男性が歌えば彼女への、女性が歌えば彼氏への想いを歌っていると聴こえるこの歌を、なんとこの絵本作家は、親の子どもに向ける深い想いを歌った歌になるように、絵を描いているのですから。

絵はとにかくキュートです。特に表紙をめくった瞬間目に入る、子犬の可愛らしさには瞬殺です。しかし、この絵本はただキュートなだけではない。絵本作家の意匠がそこここに見え隠れします。例えば、主役の犬の親子。親子とも、性別がどちらともとれるように描かれています。お父さんでもお母さんでもいい「親」と、男の子でも女の子でもいい「子ども」。そして、親子は似ているのだけれど、毛色が違う。君がいるからこその「新しい夜明け」もちゃんと絵になっています。

というわけで、可愛いのが苦手でなければ、特にお父さん・お母さんにはお勧めの一冊です。ディランらしい、君がいないとwinter would have no springとかanyway it wouldn’t ring trueといったシンプルで誌的な表現もたっぷり味わえます。これを日本語にするのは、アーサー・ビナードさんでないと無理かな?
La scienza in cucina e l'arte di mangiar bene (Il Segnalibro) (Italian Edition)
La scienza in cucina e l'arte di mangiar bene (Il Segnalibro) (Italian Edition)
For a student of Italian cooking, the importance of this volume is beyond question. Asking Italian friends for help selecting books to take home on my first visit in 1985, they reached for this volume and "Ada Boni" (the full Italian edition) before beginning to think. Some say that while Martin Luther's translation of the bible standardized the German language, Artusi's work here standardized the Italian language. Food is my religion, so I have no trouble believing this. (Some words are now archaic, and will stump online tools.)

The original text appears to be in the public domain, and one can download many PDF copies that appear to agree. Formatting for the Kindle is not rocket science (I have done this for an author friend), but one can do a better or worse job. Index? Correctly indent ingredients on their own lines? Live links? If one downloads a sample of each available Kindle edition, there is a spectacular range of efforts, with this edition hands down the best. One should really repeat my experiment before purchase (there may be a new entrant) but if you want to take my word for it, this edition of Artusi (in Italian) is an essential purchase.

I loved being able to find the opportunity to purchase refills separated by color type!! I have often purchased sets that offer refills along with the original pens. Yet it is really nice to add differing levels of colors that your set might have...more browns from deep brown to tan, same for the greens, blues pinks and purples!! I have found in all the packages that I have purchased from this company that each package has colors that are not in the sets that I buy even though they usually offer 100 or more pens. Now I wish they had just glitters - neons - etc. Also wish I could buy blank holders for these gel pen refills!! Definitely worth the monies as they add so much to the colors I already had!!

Sterling Silver Diamond 3 Stone Pendant Necklace (1/4 cttw), 18"
Bought this for my grand daughters high school graduation. Was sceptical, but ordered it anyway. Was so glad I did. It is just beautiful! It sparkles and look so expensive. In fact, due to covid and my grand daughters graduation be scheduled at the last minute, I actually bought another necklace from a big name jewelry store, just to be sure I had a gift for her. I let her choose between the two and she picked this one! It was actually much prettier than the one from the big name jewelry store. I returned the other one. She loves this necklace and even told me that she would wear it on her wedding day! I guess grandma did good!

How I Met My Father
How I Met My Father
Short... but sweet and humorous. I loved the ultimate message of the film and that the message was delivered in a manner that made me laugh out loud without downplaying its importance.
A couple of the inside jokes, like the reference to this being a 168 Film Project short, may not connect with some but I loved it. Christopher Shawn Shaw, Thor Ramsey, & Torry Martin all have a sense of humor that appeals to me and this was no exception!
Laughter is a blessing! Take a 10-minute break and enjoy this film.
Phineas and Ferb Volume 3
Phineas and Ferb Volume 3
Phineas and Ferb just makes me laugh and smile. The kids love them, the humor works on many levels, and it's safe fun entertainment for everybody. One of the few kids shows I don't mind watching, even in large batches (on a sick day or during the blizzard or the like.)

The music is brilliant too - catchy songs in all sorts of styles, and the family loves each other and is genuinely fun to spend time with. The shows where the parents get more time are some of my favorites even though they're never the main focus.

this is a great show to wind down to before bedtime and watch a few episodes. We love how each show is only 7 minutes long and keeps my 3 year old twins interest. The storyline is educational, teaches manners and other life lessons in a fun way. Hopefully there will be a season 3 to watch once we get through season 2!
Robot Chicken Season 10
Robot Chicken Season 10
I'm not sure if I outgrew the show or they outgrew me but a lot of the references this season just went over my head. When the show got started there were a lot of 80s references like Transformers, GI Joe, Masters of the Universe, and Thundercats but there was barely any of that this year. I think GI Joe was the only one to have a longer sketch; He-Man I think had a couple of short ones. There was a lot more girls stuff that maybe my nieces would have gotten better than me but then they're 8 and 9 so I wouldn't let them watch this anyway.
Doctor Strange: Damnation The Complete Collection
Doctor Strange: Damnation The Complete Collection
This is my introduction to Dr. Strange, I wasn't sure where to start with Dr. Strange but seeing Donny Cates attached to this collection as I loved what he has done for Venom and seeing a complete miniseries collection sold me on this and seemed like a fun place to jump in, and it definitely is.

This complete collection collects Damnation #1-4, Dr. Strange #386-#389, Damnation: Johnny Blaze - Ghost Rider #1, Iron Fist #78-80 and Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider #15-17 and is in that order. I have seen that many reviews are unhappy with the layout and in my opinion it was a no win situation as someone will want it in reading order but one may only want to read Damnation or Dr. Strange, regardless there will be page flipping regardless. As for the reading order, the comic itself includes a chart to show the correct reading order however it differs from what I have seen online but I'm not sure if it's the correct reading order or if it's the order they released I'll be including a picture of the chart included.

I should mention that despite not reading anything prior to this I didn't feel thrown in, the only thing it would've done is explain why Las Vegas is in ruins. It perhaps is worth a read as the series is quite good but if you're like me and just want this collection no worries.

The story begins with some heroes mourning the destruction of Las Vegas only for Strange to arrive and use magic powers to bring back all of Vegas from Hell, only problem is that a part of Hell came back with Vegas. Enter Hotel Inferno, operated by none other than Mephisto. The residents of Vegas are now turned into demons and suffer from even the tiniest of sin. Wong gathers a new band of already damned souls dubbed the Midnight Son's to save Vegas from Mephisto and his band of sinned super heroes turned into Ghost Riders.

The story and artwork were fantastic, and I'm glad the cast wasn't overly large despite not having equal panel time, despite me being inexperienced with most of these characters like Blade and Moon Knight, and Man-Thing's blatant rip off of DC's Swamp Thing it was an appropriate cast. I feel the weakest point of this collection for me was Iron Fist, perhaps it's because I'm not familiar with the story or lore and perhaps old fans may love it but for me it didn't feel like it fit in as well as the other stories just because it had demons. Each characters issues felt like it added an element and different perspective throughout this event and I liked them all except Iron Fist but that's personal preference. Regardless if you're considering this collection regardless of how you plan on reading it I think you'll enjoy it and it's easily worth a purchase regardless of your experience with Dr. Strange, don't miss out.

Hopefully you found this review helpful and happy reading.

Superbe ouvrage qui comporte de nombreux dessins du maître Akira Toriyama sur une période s'étendant de Dragon Quest 1 à Dragon Quest builder. J'ai personnellement apprécié les esquisses de travail où l'on peut voir l'évolution des personnages au travers les itérations de travail du mangaka. Par exemple Akira avait imaginé des personnages en pixel art pour le premier dragon quest, ce qui a été refusé.
Ce livre permet également d’apercevoir l'évolution du style de Toriyama dans ses périodes de génies mais également dans ses périodes creuses. On ressent très bien quand il est en forme et créatif avec une colorisation magnifique ou quand manifestement il est un peu flemmard avec de nombreuse repompe de Dragon Ball ou Docteur Slump et une colorisation peu avenante.

Realmente no me gusto, nunca sentí la conexión entre los protagonistas, tiene errores de continuidad en la historia ( o por lo menos la versión en español), sentí que la historia solo se cuenta en 3 días, cuando se conocen, cuando ella entra en coma y cuando despierta. Ni siquiera cuando despierta sentí algo de amor entre ellos! Toda las historias quedan inconclusas. Falto más información y estudiar sobre el tema que está tratando, si es un veterinario pues investiga antes de escribir, si hablas de personas en coma pues investiga!
Lo bueno es que solo son dos personajes principales, fáciles de llevar (aunque insulsos), se lee fácil y rápida.
Baoh
Baoh
BaOH is a much older anime so I wasn't expecting very much when I bought it. It turned out pretty well in the end. The animation is pretty modern looking in comparison to other anime made at that time. The story line is quite different and the best part of the show. BaOH is a parasitic worm developed by an unethical scientific organization (Doress) trying to make new weapons to sell. This worm burrows into the brain and takes control of the hosts body whenever it is threatened. Surprisingly, the worm seems to share the hosts feelings and helps those whom the host loves. But beware the people who get in their way! The unusual love relationship between the two main protagonists is rather unique. It was perhaps the best thought out part. The real problem with BaOh is that the villians are rather unoriginal, mimicking many other shows from that period, and that it was just too darn short! To make things worse, during the fights the screen will freeze when a "new" attack is performed and they will actually write the name of it on the bottom of the screen. They explain the "specifics" of it and it is always constantly referred to as a "phenomena". These constant interuptions shorten an already short show. The violence can also be repetitive and show an unneccessay amount of brains and muscle tissue. Even though the show was way too short for any real character development, the ending makes watching it all worth it. Sumire leaves Ikuroo all wet so that later she can hang him out to dry. What a conniving little girl she is! Although there are problems with this anime, its age and interesting plot add something different to your library. Before you know it you will have rewatched it a dozen times without realizing it. I advise that you not pay too much for it as there are many other animes and OVA's that deliver quantity AND quality. However, if you can get it for less I highly recommend it.

Scrabble World of Harry Potter Board Game | Official Scrabble Game Featuring Wizarding World Twist | Custom Harry Potter Game of Scrabble | Scrabble Tiles & Scrabble Board | Scrabble Word Game
Scrabble is one of my favorite games and I love that USAopoly created a Harry Potter version, as I am a huge HP fan. The game board is the same as a regular scrabble board with HP fonts and icons. You get bonus points for "magical" words, but the directions are lacking in what counts as "magical" word, especially for those of us with extensive HP knowledge, as we could find a way to justify most any word as "magical." I love the addition of the special effects cards which adds a new level of fun to the game. While this game doesn't seem to be up to the typical quality of USAopoly games, we very much enjoy playing and find it even more challenging than regular Scrabble.

Winning Moves 033343 Harry Potter Ultimate Trivial Pursuit
Great game. Only based on the movies but we know that in advance.

Having watched the films MANY times, read the books MANY times and listened to the audio books MANY times we know Harry Potter pretty well, as a result this was too easy, first game resulted in me getting 3 wedges on my first turn!

If you are not completely obsessed with HP then this would be an enjoyable game, for us it results in annoyance as the husband is not an expert and is more of a spectator when we play!

DJI OM 4 - Handheld 3-Axis Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer with Grip Tripod Vlog YouTube Live Video for iPhone Android
SECOND EDIT: I've lost patience with this to the point I consider it unusable. When doing a simple horizontal pan it is smooth for maybe 2-3 seconds before it jerks off track and ruins the video. I have tried this on follow, tilt lock, and FPV settings and it's the same in each. I just reviewed some footage I took while walking and it's seriously worse/less smooth than if I had just been walking slowly and deliberately with the phone by itself. The only thing I've actually liked is the motionlapse and timelapse after trying all the features. I have calibrated and re-calibrated the gimbal and ensured the magnet is centered correctly and nothing helps.

EDIT: Lost a star because of the lack of ISO/shutter control on Android, which other apps have. When using active track the light rapidly changes as the subject moves because auto ISO/shutter is forced. Hoping to see this software improvement very, very quickly.

This is my first Osmo and accessory of this type. I am using a Pixel 3 XL.

You must:
Power down first to lock properly
Lock gimbal according to marks on sides
Calibrate using tripod before use
Install firmware update immediately

Pros:
I forces 60fps on my Pixel 3 XL which is typically limited to 30 on a software level
Decent motionlapse
Includes tripod

Cons:
No ISO/shutter speed control on Android. iOS only.
DJI forces registration/warranty on install so you can't really return it and they do not give a full refund.
DJI doesn't have much for tutorials and it's honestly not super intuitive. Read the manual, it's short.
No idea how spin mode works or why it's even there.
Camera loses connection intermittently.
Buttons are not programmed well. I'd like to reprogram the trigger to take photos/start recording rather than the weird button set for that. All the buttons should be made for custom mapping.
Terrible horizontal pan
Video is not smooth when walking
IDAODAN Portable Dual Nozzle Rose Red 110V 600W Electric Balloon Blower Pump/Electric Balloon Inflator For Decoration
IDAODAN Portable Dual Nozzle Rose Red 110V 600W Electric Balloon Blower Pump/Electric Balloon Inflator For Decoration
I normally use a hand pump to blow up balloons. They're cheap, but it takes a lot of effort and time especially when I need a bunch of balloons inflated. This unit saves so much time. I paid less than $30 for the unit, but the time I save is much more valuable. I've only tested the unit to see if it worked in case I needed to return or exchange the pump. It's got 2 nozzles. One, which you can change the nozzle tip is controlled by the on/off switch. The other nozzle automatically starts inflating the balloon as soon as the end of the balloon is positioned on the nozzle. It blows up the balloon quickly...in fact, too quickly so I keep taking the balloon off until I get used to the process. This unit is small and effective. It has a panel for stowing away the cord and plug. Keep in mind that this electric pump is to inflate balloons--there's no helium, so don't expect the balloons to float.

I rely heavily on honest helpful reviews when I shop and I want to help others make an informed decision as well. If you think my review is helpful, please comment or click “yes” below.

The new Avantasia album is an entertaining release with some solid songs but it unfortunately ends up being one of the weakest albums in the project's discography. While there is plenty of variety covering symphonic rock, pop rock, power metal, heavy metal, AOR and ballads, the songwriting is not as captivating as it was in the past.

The instrumental portion of the album is handled as usual by Tobias Sammet on bass and lead vocals, Sascha Paeth (ex-Heaven's Gate) on guitars, Felix Bohnke (Edguy) on drums and Michael Rodenberg responsible for the orchestrations. The list of guest vocalists includes Hansi Kürsch (Blind Guardian), Jorn Lande (ex-Ark, ex-Masterplan), Ronnie Atkins (Pretty Maids), Michael Kiske (Helloween, Unisonic), Geoff Tate (ex-Queensryche), Bob Catley (Magnum), Candice Night (Blackmore's Night), Mille Petrozza (Kreator) and Eric Martin (Mr. Big).

“Book of Shallows” is the heaviest song on offer and one of the best ones as well. It is fast paced and includes some powerful and heavy guitar riffs, a catchy chorus and nice vocal transitions between Hansi Kürsch, Ronnie Atkins, Jorn Lande and Mille Petrozza.

“Alchemy” probably contains the best chorus on the album and is another highlight. It is an atmospheric mid tempo melodic metal song with a darker atmosphere and some welcome heavier riffs. Geoff Tate blends well with Tobias Sammet and offers some nice vocal work that harkens back to Queensryche.

“Requiem for a Dream” is a fast power metal song with a soaring chorus and a major highlight. This is the only song to feature Michael Kiske on vocals and as usual he provides a stunning performance showing off his power and upper range. Although it is a signature Avantasia song it just works great and provides a twist with its atmospheric church chant intro and the inclusion of a bass solo.

“The Piper at the Gates of Dawn” is not perfect but generally works well and is another standout song. It is one of the longest tracks and the only to feature that many singers sharing vocals. The song includes some irritating modern keyboards and its chorus is similar to the Avantasia song Another Angel Down, but it is bombastic, catchy and features one of the best guitar solos on the album. In addition, guest vocalists Atkins, Lande, Martin, Catley and Tate do an admirable job and make the track a little more memorable.

Moonglow’s biggest flaw is the absence of catchy choruses on several tracks and the feeling of déjà vu in several song passages. The epic “The Raven Child” is the perfect example as it includes a Blind Guardian inspired intro, Iron Maiden and Savatage influences, an ending section that is identical to the Avantasia song The Scarecrow and a rather unmemorable chorus. Despite some great vocal work by Jorn Lande the whole thing ends up sounding unoriginal, boring and long. Another drawback is the general absence of guitar solos in the album. The last negative aspect of Moonglow is the fact that Tobias Sammet sings on all songs and doesn’t leave much room for the guest vocalists to fully unveil their talents.

Moonglow is definitely weaker when compared to the previous album Ghostlights. It is not a bad album as it is inspired, bombastic and offers some memorable moments, but it is not great either. It will probably sound good and interesting for someone not familiar with Avantasia, but for older fans it has unfortunately little to offer.

I must admit that when I first received them I was disappointed but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. I was really hoping that they would be thicker with more cushion but I had them so why not give them a try. It must be understood that I have a lot of problems with my feet, everything from plantar fasciitis and bone spurs to arthritis and neuropathy and everything in between so there is no perfect insert for me. So I tried them, in fact in several pair of slippers, shoes, etc. and then I found the perfect match with my moccasins. They're soft, keep my feet toasty warm and I love playing with the fleece with my toes. I wear them all day long, every day and will buy them again when they wear out.

Both me and my brother have herniated discs and this helped within the first week or so of consistently using it. I’m 120lbs, got the xs. I have a very soft mattress topper so the roll doesn’t bother me but my brother says he uses it on a firm mattress and he’s just as happy with it. Helps us both sleep longer and get out of bed easier. It simply supports your lumbar while you sleep. I’ve discovered that you can either tie it around your waist or lie it flat for side or back sleepers. Pilates, water therapy and CBD oil have all helped me heal myself holistically. I wish you the same success!

Pros: Pretty easy to put together(45 minutes for me), Durable and it holds me pretty good, Head and lumbar pillow are good and fluffy. Takes some effort to push on a carpet floor but this is good for me. Stitches are done well and decent cushion.

Cons: armrest don't adjust.
Since owning it for about a month it developed a squeak with any kind of movement in the right hinge and had to re tighten the screws a couple times, so i bought some loctite to take care of that problem.

Other Thoughts: It's a good value and seems like its made good for the price. It is a comfortable chair but by no means the best chair I have ever sat in. It has a very nice and tall wide back and the head pillow works great for me and hits me right in the upper neck. It can be adjusted and not sewn into the chair like some are. Its held up to me very well for the past month now and me being 6 foot 1 & 250+ I think it's doing pretty well.

After considering a lot of options for upgrading my pfSense machine at home including models from Protectli and others, I stumbled across this one. Granted there was only one other review so far but for the price, I figured it was worth a shot as it was a solid $100 less than the other options I was considering, and faster/more powerful.

As usual, Amazon shipping was good but it was delayed a day to a UPS trailer being late somewhere, but hey, that happens, no big deal.

The instructions are basically nonexistent but anyone buying one of these is probably smart enough to not need them. To install RAM and disk, it's four screws on the bottom plate and it is all easily accessible.

My only minor complaint was that nowhere did I find how to get into the BIOS. Turns out you hit the 'delete' key during boot and that will bring up the bios environment. Had to do some Googling to find that one. I do wish it had a VGA port but that's no big deal. I happen to have more random old VGA monitors laying around than HDMI ones but that's only for initial configuration anyway and really not an issue for using it as a router/firewall box.

It has a nice baseplate for mounting with standoff screws that raise it about half an inch. That is great for airflow and also for ease of mounting. Screw the standoff screws into the base, screw the baseplate to the wall, and then simply slide the computer right onto the baseplate. No measuring, no lining up screw holes. That right there was awesome.

Installing pfsense was quick, not surprising. Restored a backup from my current machine, defined the interfaces, and it was off to the races. It certainly handled my connection just fine. I'm on a 400/20 cable modem and was seeing 480/22 with this box. It's been humming along in my furnace room/server room for a couple days now, using barely a couple dozen watts of electricity and probably less. It doesn't get hot either, just warm to the touch, although I have it mounted vertically with plenty of airflow.

I'd recommend this without hesitation, and may install one at work as well. As my brother said when I was telling him about it, "An i5 chip on a router. That’s so much overkill! But it’s what Tim Taylor would do."

Good Quality dal. No way to verify whether any product is actually organic or not, but i would rather place my trust on TATA than any other company in these days of false marketing claims and insatiable corporations.

Taste is identical BUT weaker (from the very first chew, you notice it in seconds) than the original Bazooka gum sold by the piece for decades. The wrapper is certainly different, it has no comic either, but I don't care about either of these issues. Mine arrived very fresh, the gum was soft-- better in this regard than the original Bazooka, actually. The flavor didn't last very long at all. Pieces are slightly longer and narrower than the original one-cent Bazooka pieces.

Package was short by 6 pieces-- I counted everything (twice) because one was loose in the outer mailing box (the seal on this clear container wasn't so sealed), and because other reviewers have complained of short counts with this item. I can confirm that I, too, was shorted.

A solidly good copy; but not exactly the same. If you can live with it being not identical, but with the same exact flavor-- except not as strong-- then you'll like this product.

These figures are more accurate to MOJANG's designs than many budget Minecraft toys you may want to gift. The accuracy should please more familiar fans and dedicated collectors.

Each figure is a small, durable weight in the palm of your hand. All figures are made of metal and their bases are adjusted per figure to support weight imbalance.

The figures are fit into a plastic mold held within the product box by a second mold. Amazon shipped my product surrounded by air bags within a larger cardboard box. This means of packaging should protect the figures, but may cause damage to the product box.

I found an issue with quality control with my Wave 2 figure set. One figure had a paint smear upon its face. There were also multiple spots of paint of a differing color found upon the base.

Great for children and adults alike!
