The Tao of Warren Buffett: Warren Buffett's Words of Wisdom: Quotations and Interpretations to Help Guide You to Billionaire Wealth and Enlightened Business Management
I have one grouse against authors who write about Mr Buffet - "Buy great companies at reasonable prices" they all say. Until then just sit on the sidelines. If I waited to buy shares of great businesses at reasonable prices I would die of old age before I got a chance. I live in India and the share prices of great companies like Colgate, Nestle, Unilever etc etc ( the sort that Warren Buffet loves) almost never fall below 40 times earnings. But even purchased at these inflated levels they prove to be fabulous wealth creators. Mr Buffet also never invests in technology stocks because he does not understand them and their future is uncertain. Here I think that Mr Buffet is wrong. Many leading Software companies have great ROC and ROA. They are awash with cash. Infosys has six billion dollars in reserves and not one dollar of debt. How's that for wealth creation. Senior citizens will be happy to note that in his world of investing you are only taken seriously after you hit 65 years of age and have at least four decades of investing experience under your belt. Just shows what high standards the man lives by.
Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs
With the exception of one laptop and 2 non-smart cell phones, in my personal and professional life since 2004 I've had nothing but Apple products - computers (both desktop and laptop), iPads, iPods, and my crown jewel: my iPhone. None has ever disappointed me. I say this not to put forth a review of the Apple products but to explain that I am part of Steve Jobs's choir: I value, respect and rely on the products that he created. I'm sold, so to speak. And so it seemed only logical that I would eventually read this book to gain insight both in the genesis and evolution of Apple and in the person of Steve Jobs. The book did not disappoint in either.

What I found out about the early years and the development of the personal computer was fascinating. I do remember a lot of the news articles from those years - I was living in San Francisco at the time and a good friend of mine worked for Apple - but I would not consider myself previously knowledgeable about Apple in any comprehensive way. I learned so much of the nuts and bolts of Apple Computer, Inc., from this book. The chapters about the creation of the iPod, iPhone and iPad were very interesting to someone who has used these products for years and years and feels she has some proficiency using what they offer me.

But the insight I gained from the book on Steve Jobs the man left me very sad. While I consider him to have been a true genius with an almost other-worldly imagination, I can't imagine that I would have liked him very much or respected him outside of his professional arena. As the founder and developer of Apple Computer, he was spectacular. He had an intense imagination, vision, and belief in things that had yet to be discovered. He was fortunate enough to find those people who had the same precise work ethic that he did. To find those people and to hone the abilities of the ones who stayed, he had no reservations about crushing their substandard efforts or their feelings. The ones who lasted were the ones who believed in his vision and their Jobs-given opportunity to indulge and demonstrate their own creativity. The ones who lasted were the best and brightest the tech and artistic world had to offer. The ones who lasted were the ones who took his ideas and made them into our reality. I am profoundly grateful to them and to him for the advances they made in technology and artistry. And I guess the one cannot exist without the other. Without his exact personality would the tech world have been turned on its ear and eventually controlled by Apple? I don't know. Actually I doubt it.

In terms of his family, it seemed as if his attention to them was given only when it was not required or demanded elsewhere. His children were discussed very little; the same is true about Laurene Powell, his wife. But it is clear that in his wife he found the one person who was his equal in intelligence and commitment. Their marriage is portrayed as strong but him as absent.

The sections on his cancer and eventual death were moving but not enough to make me feel for him as a person. I am sorry he died but my sorrow has to do with the loss of him professionally and what he might have accomplished and achieved had he lived but not with the loss of him as a man. And yet I can recognize his genius and I'm glad I read the book.
The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America
The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America
This is an extraordinarily important and highly readable book. It examines the relationship between the U.S. government and Silicon Valley at a time when that relationship seems under great stress. We see Washington gearing up to target Big Tech for its violation of personal privacy and the widespread dissemination of hate and lies through social media. The Trump Administration bears particular animus toward Amazon because founder and CEO Jeff Bezos owns the Washington Post, which has been critical of Trump. For its part, Big Tech seems dismissive of Washington’s role in promoting technological development. Worst of all, to me, is that some in Big Tech prefer to work with the Chinese government rather than the American government. At a time when we are facing a massive technological challenge from China, Washington and leading technology companies ought to be collaborating in creating winning strategies.
O’Mara makes it clear that Silicon Valley owes its very existence to massive research and development spending by the federal government starting in World War II. She writes that the tech leaders who have become household names, from Steve Jobs to Mark Zuckerberg, “were not lone cowboys, but very talented people whose success was made possible by the work of many other people, networks, and institutions. Those included the big-government programs that political leaders of both parties critiqued so forcefully, and that many tech leaders viewed with suspicion if not downright hostility. From the Bomb to the moon shot to the backbone of the Internet and beyond, public spending fueled an explosion of scientific and technical discovery, providing the foundation for generations of start-ups to come.”
This gets at the heart of the whole ideological argument about “industrial policy,” which has paralyzed the U.S. government. I argue in my book, The New Art of War: China’s Deep Strategy Inside the United States, that we Americans need to develop a technology policy or a series of policies to respond to what China is achieving. Huawei’s roll-out of 5G wireless communications technology is just one example of how the Chinese are attempting to leapfrog the United States and all other major nations with Artificial Intelligence, quantum computing and other advanced technologies. But opponents of an industrial policy have always argued that the government should not pick winners and losers and that government spending for specific technologies represents “corporate welfare.” The political firestome over Solyndra during the Obama Administration is a case in point.
O’Mara shows that there are right ways and wrong ways for a government to support the commercialization of new ideas. She writes that U.S. government money flowed “indirectly, competitively, in ways that gave the men and women of the tech world remarkable freedom to define what the future might look like, to push the boundaries of the technologically possible, and to make money in the process. Academic scientists, not politicians and bureaucrats, spurred the funding for and shaped the design of more-powerful computers, breakthroughs in artificial intelligence, and the Internet…”
So we should do a better job of defining how the federal government can best support technological development. The Obama Administration may have been a bit too aggressive and too specific in attempting to develop the lithium ion battery field. A123 Systems, the Boston-based maker of lithium ion batteries that received large scale federal funding, ended up going bankrupt—and being sold to the Chinese. This was an example of how NOT to develop a critical technology.
There is work to be done on all fronts but Silicon Valley’s psychology looms as one major barrier. O’Mara writes that U.S. military spending has been a major source of support for Big Tech. Yet many in Silicon Valley are openly dismissive of the Pentagon. O’Mara notes “a continuing irony: that some of those most enriched by the new-style military-industrial complex were also some of the tech industry’s most outspoken critics of big government, and champions of the free market. In the space-age Valley, the person embodying this contradiction was Dave Packard. In the cyber age, it was Peter Thiel.” In a particularly stinging line, she writes that “Thiel became a latter-day H. Ross Perot: a champion of free enterprise who was simultaneously reaping a great fortune from the government he disdained.” Thiel made millions by co-founding Palantir, a cutting-edge Big Data analytical company that relies on Defense Department business.
Hopefully, O’Mara’s book will show everyone the important web of connections between the U.S. government and America’s technology champions and help us serious about responding to China’s state-subsidized technology offensive.
Small Fry: A Memoir
Small Fry: A Memoir
Living in Palo Alto in the 1980s, we often heard rumors that Steve had a daughter named Lisa for whom the computer was named. No one seemed to know whether this was a true story or an urban legend, and certainly none of us realized that Lisa and her mom lived among us -- going out for dinner to the Good Earth, shopping at Units, cruising down University Avenue. Meanwhile, especially after Steve and Laurene married and more kids came along, we often ran into them: getting dessert at Gelato Classico, buying gifts at Palo Alto Toy & Sport, even roller skating along Homer near Whole Foods. Whatever else we thought about Steve, he seemed like a devoted dad.

Except he wasn't.

Lots of people are raised by substandard parents. You don't get to choose your mom and dad. For many of us, recovery can take decades or maybe even never. But Lisa, to her unending credit, is able to tell a story that radiates affection despite describing neglect that borders on abuse. She walks us through her childhood and teen years with unstinting candor, including a number of anecdotes that highlight her own missteps.

The most affecting scenes are the mother-daughter stories. Chris doesn't seem like a candidate for Mom of the Year, as she leaves Lisa by herself as a young child, brings home a series of boyfriends, moves from house to house, and often loses her temper. But because we see her through Lisa's eyes, our takeaway is the shared adoration between mother and child, and we understand that for all her foibles, Chris fought to give her daughter the best possible life. And in many ways her efforts were stymied rather than supported by the fact that Steve overshadowed their lives, even during the years that he remained detached from them.

Lisa is an artist, and her writing is the verbal equivalent of a painting, every detail sharply rendered. For that reason alone, this book is worth a reader's attention. Years ago I read an autobiography written by a poet whose narrative resonated like a poem; Small Fry hits that same note and sustains it. If not for her famous father, her book probably would never have been published, and that would have been a loss to all of us.

The Globalization of World Politics: An Introduction to International Relations
All students must develop critical ability to interpret a complex, globalized world. Knowing facts and interpreting them in an autonomous way are desirable skills for who wants to act in areas regarding with world affairs. This book offers excellent tools to achieve such goals! More than one vision about the same subject permits readers to form his own opinion; case studies, tables and key points notations help remarking main ideas; extra questions stimulate students to think about readings. All of that and much more make this a fantastic book!

Oprah Winfrey (Just the Facts Biographies)
"I'm just a voice trying to help people rediscover their best selves." ~ Oprah

Oprah is a fascinating woman and in this "Just the Facts Biography" we learn about all her major achievements and the life choices that made her the amazing woman she is today. I especially enjoyed learning about her childhood and some of the stories are amusing. One sad story is about how her mother took books away from her and didn't let her go to the library. Later Oprah becomes pregnant and has to deal with the death of her first child.

When you think about what Oprah had to overcome it is amazing that she is as successful as she has turned out to be. In this biography you also learn about her rise to power and how she took opportunities that were presented to her so she would be in the right place at the right time. This book also contains the story of how she met her best friend Gayle King and how she had pajama parties at Maya Angelou's home. A lot has happened in Oprah's personal life since 2005 so this book is in need of an update.

I can also highly recommend:

Unconventional Leadership: What Henry Ford and Detroit Taught Me about Reinvention and Diversity
Unconventional Leadership: What Henry Ford and Detroit Taught Me about Reinvention and Diversity
People always tell me how awful Detroit is. As far as I am concerned though, the Motor City has always been a place of great memories since my childhood. From the Detroit Lions, Meeting Mr. Barry Sanders, Mr. Herman Moore, The Jacksons (remember 1983?) Mosque#1, the auto show, Ford Field, Berverly Hills Cop I, all those places to eat, Mowtown holds a special place for me. No matter where you go there are reminders of the Ford Motor Industry in the form of old buildings, factories, and other structures.

While the focus of this work is to discuss leadership reform in America, I found the contents to bring back many wonderful memories of my trips to the Motor City.

I believe this work should be a point of reference for all those attempting to rebuild aspects of inner-city life in America. An equally important aspect of "Unconventional Leadership," is the emphasis on diversity in the workforce, which needs to be cited.in light of the year 2016. There are many incredible insights given by the author which are of value.

Looking forward to the day the Motor City becomes new again and when that happens Ms. Schlichting will be there.

"We do not make changes for the sake of making them, but we never fail to make a change once it is demonstrated that the new way is better than the old way. we hold it as our duty to premit nothing to stand in the way of progress."

"Our invariable reply to "It can't be done" is "Go do it."

"One's own workers ought to be one's own best customers."

"In conclusion, I will state that it is my intention to go forward with plans for complete and credible hospital for the benefit of Detroit."
Cooking for Henry: The Memories and Recipes of Chef Jan Willemse, Former Pastry Chef at Dearborn Inn and Personal Party Chef for Henry Ford I
Cooking for Henry: The Memories and Recipes of Chef Jan Willemse, Former Pastry Chef at Dearborn Inn and Personal Party Chef for Henry Ford I
I own this book, and besides the many bread and dessert recipes, you will find soups, salads and dressing, vegetable dishes and main courses. Of particular interest are a wide variety of recipes using the soybean and its products, as Mr. Ford was instrumental in the research and development of soy as a human food source. "Mr. Ford... once said that, next to the Model T, he considered his soybean research to be his greatest work." It is no lightweight cookbook, as it contains 234 recipes, by my count. I just got it, so i haven't cooked any up yet, but look forward to enjoying this bite of local history. (Go, Dearborn!)

A Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump : First Edition (Newer Edition Released 2017...."in the Era of President Trump"
A Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump : First Edition (Newer Edition Released 2017...."in the Era of President Trump"
One of the most frequent questions regarding Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign is: How is it possible that he can distort the truth, tell lies, insult not only significantly respected people but whole groups of people, and still not lose supporters? His connection to the truth and to respect seems to make no difference to millions of followers. Why is that? The contributors to A Clear and Present Danger: Narcissism in the Era of Donald Trump provide a thoughtful insight of the “Trump Phenomenon” by using professional psychology to analyze Donald Trump, the person, as well as the social identity of the population to which he so adroitly appeals. His high score on the scale of narcissist traits helps explain his behavior, including his self-aggrandizement and lack of empathy. But the analysis of the “group self”, or social identity of his followers who feel ignored, abused, and abandoned helps explain their rather blind and nearly unquestioned support despite his distortion of truth and insults of women and whole ethnic and religious groups. This extremely valuable book helps us understand how demagoguery works and how, from a psychological point of view, people will blindly hand over their freedom to a leader who articulates their frustration, and the louder the better.

Rastaman Vibration
Rastaman Vibration
I remember hearing this album when I was in high school and I had not heard many of these songs in 30 years. I think Marley was years ahead of his time and the concerns and ideals he expressed in his songs are as relevant today as they were when he originally performed them. There is a pervading theme about the injustices in the world from racism ("War"), to materialism ("Rat race"), social injustice ("Crazy baldhead", "Who the cap fit") and violence ("Johnny was"). He also incorporated uplifting messages ("Positive vibration", "Roots, rock, reggae", "Jah live"). This album has a certain un-polished charm about it. It 's rough and to the point. I wish some of the ills of society that he sang about were not still as prevalent as they are today! To quote Pete Seeger "Oh, when will they ever learn?"
La Diva
La Diva
LA DIVA (Billboard #146 Albums Chart and #25 R&B Albums Chart) has been frequently maligned by the critics and and even more sadly, was her least commercially successful release on Atlantic Records. In a major cover story, Interview Magazine noted, in the discograpy following Aretha's interview, that 1979's LA DIVA was the "nadir" of her entire career. It may not be Aretha's finest hour but she has never been in better voice. Her instrument was at its absolute glorious peak during that 4yr period from 1975-79. For Arethaphiles, that alone, is cause for celebration, but there's a lot more going on here than just the VOICE. In full disclosure I must confess that I played certain tracks from this album almost daily, for several years and that I adore the front cover photo. You may be too young to remember, but when this album was released the the word "diva" was very rarely used in everyday speech, nothing like it is today. As always Aretha was setting the stage for things to come.

Van McCoy's syrupy strings and the Ray Coniff Singers type back-up vocal arangements nearly overwhelm the two torch songs, "What If I Should Ever Need You" and McCoy's own "You Brought Me Back to Life"; yet the melodies and lyrics are touching, and Aretha's vocals convey such a heartbroken though restrained mania that both tracks end up being unforgettable. I'd love to hear her sing these songs w/ only piano acccompaniment.
Her son Clarence joins her on his own compostion, the lovely aching ballad, "You Were Made for Me." It's about as close to a Marvin Gaye (think a teen-aged Marivn)/Re duet that were ever gonna get.

It was the disco era and on her final Atlantic effort Lady Soul took the full plunge. Her self-penned "Ladies Only" (#33 Billboard R&B Singles Chart), released the same week as the much more successful dance song, with a similar title, Kool and the Gang's "Ladies Night, was the lp's first single. While well sung, it's corny and lacking in her trademark Re-funk. She also wrote "Only Star" which is pure Devine Diva Drag-Queen Disco, completely irresistable. Though not a huge disco fan I'll take Re's few attempts over the typical Donna Summer fair any day. The album's worst song, another disco entry, "The Feeling", (a rip-off of the Melba Moore dance hit "This Is It") frantically goes nowhere with Re's vocals buried way too deep in the mix.

Though this album is remembered as her failed attempt at disco, most fans don't realize that Re also tackled some rocking R&B numbers with a vengeance: the Emotions "Reasons Why", Zulema's "Half a Love" and what maybe the album's most inspired 5 minutes and 20 seconds, Lalome Washburn's "It's Gonna a Get a Bit Better". On that track Aretha sings, screams, shrieks, moans and hollers the same line over and over-about a million times, on top of a throbbing bass, but... never repeats the same phrasing once. Gospel fervor marries funk ballet.
Finally in response to Natalie Cole's pushing her off the sales charts by employing Aretha's own style, her Majesty delivers the self-penned, "Honey I Need Your Love", a recording that is absolutely perfect in every way. It should have been the first single even if it wasn't a disco song. She shows Natalie how to rock, shout and swing it right on this one (just as she had equisitely demonstrated to Natalie, on a previous lp's title song, "You", how one should nail a soul ballad.) Don't mess with the Queen. "Honey I Need Your Love" is essential for any Aretha career anthology, yet it has criminally never been available on any Aretha cd, ever. Call the Cops! There are over a 100 cds out there with the same 50 Aretha hits but there's never been a single one with any of the magical cuts from the following albums: LA DIVA, YOU, SWEET PASSION, WITH EVERYTHING I FEEL IN ME or ALMIGHTY FIRE! These dismissed, overlooked and forgotten albums represent the era when The Queen's voice was at it's most volcanically flawless, powerful, sweet and high!

Louis Armstrong Fleischmanns Yeast Show & Louis Home Recorded Tapes
Louis Armstrong Fleischmanns Yeast Show & Louis Home Recorded Tapes
Folks, hardcore Satch fans have known for years that the great Daniel Louis Armstrong was the first Black host of his own sponsored radio show back in 1937, but only one recording of that has surfaced-until now!

This CD is an absolute joy to listen to! It has all of the earmarks that made the beloved Satchmo so wonderful. Unlike much of the stiff recitations so common of singers and radio hosts of the era, improvisation is the key here. Satch banters with the audience and clowns and jokes while putting his own spins on songs not usually associated with him such as "The Love Bug" (familiar to this generation through Alfalfa in the Our Gang Follies of 1938) as well as more familiar tunes such as "You Rascal You". It is clear that the man loves what he is doing and the band is first rate to boot (especially the drummer).

There is a particularly nice teaming of Satch with the Mills Brothers doing "Darling Nellie Grey." Our man is abit more subdued than usual and if you listen closely to the lyrics, you'll see why. This is a thinly disguised song about a slave who loses his lover to a slave sale

Disc 2 consists of our man at home telling stories, playing along ot old records, and in the best two sequences, telling a story to his little neice and closing on his philosophy of life. You are less likely to listen to this stuff more than a couple of times, but it's nice to hear.

Now why do I give this 4 stars and not 5? It's because whoever edited this thing is in need of a triple dose of Swiss Kriss (Satch fans will dig). These are cut versions from different episodes (which were originally variety shows with other performers-some mentioned in the introduction but do not appear on disc). Instead of the disc of Satch's home recordings (which is admittedly nice in its own way), there's no reason that this cannot be released as a series of the shows in their complete, original form. From what the liner notes describe of what's missing, it really sounds fascinating. The Mills brothers teaming mentioned above is the only guest act segment used here, while many other sremain on the original broadcasts. I HATE when record companies do this stuff! I hope the editor reads this and wises up for future releases!

That aside, it will truly bring joy to your spirit (though some minor surface noise will annoy the audiophiles). Satch lives again live and in his prime! A history lesson with a beat! This makes me want to get some recordings of Satch's other radio shows (such as the "Jubilee" show that he occasionally hosted in the 40s available elsewhere on the web). Listen and enjoy.

Bob Dylan for Clawhammer Banjo
Bob Dylan for Clawhammer Banjo
This is a book full of excellently done tabs for Bob Dylan in clawhammer banjo. The way the songs are tabbed out don't make it seem like the songs were "forced" into the necessary pattern for clawhammer style, they're all in standard tunings (G, D, Double C, and all along the watchtower is in D minor), and different rhythms that are great fun and fit inductively to the natural "bum ditty" groove of clawhammer. Rather, the tabs make it seem like the songs were meant to be played this way. Most tunes are easy enough for the intermediate player to work through, and to entertain fully the advanced player. Playing claw hammer banjo can get a little repetitive when all you're playing are folk tunes that all sound quite similar, and I found this book to be a great change of pace while staying true to the clawhammer style. I can't recommend this book enough for anybody who likes to play clawhammer banjo.

Used it twice now. Made regular black cherry slushies and coffee frappes they came out great. We make our own ice cream so We used rock salt have to say DONT USE ROCK SALT, it binds it up. Use table or kosher salt. The second run of frappes (coffee syrup and 2% milk) came out better than Starbucks. We did end up increasing the syrup to 7 oz instead of 5 oz for both runs. It goes quick. Watch it like a hawk after 10 min because its one of those nothing, nothing, nothing, holy cow we got slushies!!! Make sure to keep the ice topped off and you're golden. Prep is key though make sure everything is cold when you start. Kids are on missions now to find wacky flavors to prank friends when we get out of lockdown. 🤫 the noise isn't any louder than a hand mixer or regular ice cream machine but if it gets loud it meant something was wrong (rock salt binding it up in our case)

In short, for a gmae thats been out for some time, it's fun for awhile, especially when it's under 10 bucks.

To Gund's defense, the label on the koala says "hand wash" and "air dry" that we had missed. Nevertheless, I find it unusual and inconvenient for a soft toy for little kids to not withstand a machine wash (unlike all our other soft toys).

Gave them three stars because my four-year-old knew exactly what they were before he opened package. Also because he loves loves them. they did break, but after a bit of glue and some patients from my son they were back together again. They are made of foam, not quite styrofoam, a little more flexible . the velcro straps that hold them on your hands are very thin so they don't hold verry well. The plastic that holds the foam claws and goes on top of Knuckles is quite hard but does not hurt my son's hand and is well formed. I will not buy these again. but however for the price I did know what I was getting into and am overall satisfied.

Basic Halloween costume. My husband is 6’2” 190lbs and we ordered the standard costume. It was a little short in the legs but I think the XL would have been too large. The costume is great and looks amazing. Only thing that looks odd is the top portion is all muscular but the costume definitely skipped leg day. My husband put his hockey leg pads on underneath to match the upper bulk.
Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme Vol. 2: Time After Time
Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme Vol. 2: Time After Time
This volume collects issues #7-12 of this maxi-series, which brings the story begun in the first volume to a close in the first three issues, and then takes us into Wiccan’s future to sort out his problems in the final three, where all the cross-time loose ends are finally tied up.

I was pleasantly surprised to find the main story brought to a close so early, rather than being stretched out – like a Netflix series – to fill up the available slots, and a second story launching off from it.

This was an entertaining volume, with reasonably good artwork (I am old enough to still miss Ditko, Severin, Colan and Brunner’s work), and if we are lucky, some of the characters might migrate over to the main series, as they end up in the good Doctor’s house at the end.

My toddler has had trouble dealing with emotions. After talking to a professional, she suggested this book. I had never heard of it but she recommended it to help my little guy identify his emotions so that he could learn to explain them rather than acting out. This has made a world of difference. 1st, the book is easy to read/follow. 2nd it really helps identify emotions. If you have a toddler who is struggling, give it a shot. At the very least its another great Dr Suess book.

Love Nora Roberts and her stories under , J D Robb. Enjoying the stories in First Snow very much. Thing only thing I did not like was the voice the reader Christina Traister used for Michael. Had a hard time listening to it.

My favorite reader is Susan Ericksen . She did a fantastic job on the J D Robb ,,, In Death, series. The way she brought out each and every character is just great.

It serves as an already prepared journal allowing me to makes notes in the margins on likes, dislikes, the emotions stirred. Since I travel a lot, I listen, read in car, on airplanes, at home, while waiting for appointments. I use the
Companion to keep track of my listening, reading, purchases with "notes in the margins" It is a "keeper." I would love to see a Companion 2 adding all the J D Robb books since "Visions in Death " and the Nora Robert books since Companion was published in 2003. Please, Please and Thank You.
The Rogue (Pocket Star Books Romance)
The Rogue (Pocket Star Books Romance)
Diana Somers grew up on an Arabian horse ranch with her father and an assortment of ranch hands. Around the time she was 14, her happy tomboy existence changes when a new ranch hand, Holt Mallory arrives with his son Guy. Holt convinces Diana's father that she should act like a lady, and stop riding stallions and going on trail rides. Diana cooperates and goes to school, but resents Holt terribly, and lets him know it. Meanwhile, Guy, the son, adores Diana and follows her around like a puppy dog.

Well, some stuff happens, and Diana grows up and marries for the wrong reasons, and gets divorced, and returns to the ranch. Guy confesses his love for her and one thing leads to another, in a not especially healthy way. Diana and Holt have a fiery relationship full of acrimony and false accusations, and one thing leads to another, again in a not particularly healthy way.

Meanwhile, there is a mysterious and almost magical white stallion that is stealing mares and starting fights, and generally being a nuisance, but he is too beautiful to kill.

I am giving this book a high rating for a couple of reasons. Remember those horse stories you used to love in middle school where the horse was a metaphor for something sexy and dominating? The wild mustang stallion is the ultimate alpha male. What fun to revisit that theme.

Second, the book is really steamy with a '70's sort of free-love mentality. The heroine sleeps around. And there are consequences. Just because her emotions aren't engaged doesn't mean somebody else's aren't. Which is a good lesson to remember, and something we don't see too much in modern romance books.

So this one is a little different, and a little steamy, with a touch of "oh my I can't believe she did that" in the plot. It's pretty good, if you're in the mood for that kind of thing.

I loved these little boots so much that I ended up getting a pair in brown. they're well made and seem to be holding up well to the life of an active first grader while looking very stylist. I prefer to send her to school in shoes like these instead of sneakers which seem to get dirty so fast. The side zipper is great if for some reason the kids have to take off their shoes. I just double knot the laces and shes good to go.
The Theology of C.S. Lewis: A Topical Summary of his Best Work (Updated August 2020 Edition Book 2)
The Theology of C.S. Lewis: A Topical Summary of his Best Work (Updated August 2020 Edition Book 2)
C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) was many things – author, novelist, Christian apologist, radio broadcaster, scholar, writer of children’s stories, speaker, and lecturer. One thing he was not, and never claimed to be, was a theologian. His scholarly work at Oxford and later Cambridge universities focused on later medieval history and literature. He’s even remembered today by scholars for his “A Preface to Paradise Lost,” still considered one of the best works on the subject.

But a theologian he was not. And yet, given his enormous influence on several generations of Christians, and his continuing influence, it’s worth considering exactly what his theology was. That’s what Kevin Livermore has done in “The Theology of C.S. Lewis.”

And Lewis’s theology has to be gleaned from his writings. Livermore undertakes a close reading of many if not most of Lewis’s works, including “Mere Christianity,” “The Problem of Pain,” “A Grief Observed,” “The Chronicles of Narnia,” “The Weight of Glory,” “The Screwtape Letters,” “Surprised by Joy,” “God in the Dock,” “The Great Divorce,” “Perelandra,” and more.

The book covers the problem of evil and the existence of God; love, marriage, and fidelity; human origins; the main themes of Lewis’s work; the world of Narnia; and the battle with God and grief. Livermore also includes a hefty section of Lewis quotations on a wide variety of subjects and an extensive summary of each of the works used in the discussion.

The author is a college pastor and asset management consultant in real estate. He received a B.S. in business administration from the University of Southern California, and Masters of Divinity degree from Fuller Theological Seminary. He serves at Friends Church in Yorba Linda, California, and is the founder of the YouTube channel 3-ology.

“The Theology of C.S. Lewis” is a comprehensive introduction to what Lewis believed and how he anchored his writings in his beliefs.
RICHARD SCARRYS READY TO READ BOOKS LOWLY WORM JOINS THE CIRCUS (The Busy World of Richard Scarry)
RICHARD SCARRYS READY TO READ BOOKS LOWLY WORM JOINS THE CIRCUS (The Busy World of Richard Scarry)
Yes, the circus has finally come to Busytown. In this episode we find Lowly Worm faced with the dilemma of having to choose his "real" family. Will he choose the circus family, who he wistfully runs away with after impressing their ring leader (Top Hat Fox), or will he remain true to the cat family, who has nurtured him thus far along the road of life? This installation proves to be an emotional rodeo that consequently introduces fundamental questions of 'authenticity' regarding adoptive kinship strategies in planned interspecies patternings. A stimulating and colorful romp.
Nacht über den Wassern: Roman (German Edition)
Nacht über den Wassern: Roman (German Edition)
In “Nacht über den Wassern” geht es um das Schicksal mehrerer Protagonisten., das sich für jeden von ihnen in der einen Nacht, die sie im Pan-American-Clipper verbringen, entscheidet. Manche von ihnen fliegen los, haben ein klares Ziel vor Augen, das sie unbedingt verwirklichen wollen, und tun dies dann auch mehr oder weniger tatsächlich. Und andere von ihnen fliegen mit einem klaren Ziel vor Augen los, kommen davon ab und merken während des Fluges, dass sie ihr Glück möglicherweise wo ganz anderes finden.

An sich eine wirklich gute Geschichte. Ich mag auch Geschichten, in denen die Charaktere Entwicklungen durchlaufen und am Ende ein deutlicher Fortschritt in der Persönlichkeit zu sehen ist. Was mich hier aber dabei gestört hat ist, dass mir diese Entwicklungen teilweise zu schnell gingen. Natürlich kann auch ein kleiner Moment ein Leben ändern, aber hier haben sich auf sehr begrenzten Raum doch zu viele Leben geändert.

Was mir auch nicht so gut gefallen hat ist, dass es einfach zu viele Figuren gibt, die im Mittelpunkt stehen. Es fiel mir schwer, überhaupt erstmal einen Überblick zu bekommen, wer zu wem gehört und in welcher Beziehung die Personen zueinander stehen. Irgendwann wurde das natürlich besser, aber ich könnte jetzt schon nicht mehr alle Personen aufzählen und ich habe das Buch erst vor 2 Tagen beendet.

Insgesamt eine ganz gute Geschichte, bei der aber durchaus noch Luft nach oben besteht.

On at least 3 occasions, the character names were transposed with those of the actresses e.g " Daniela Bianchi played by Tatiana Romanova" ( the others being the characters of Fiona Volpe and Pam Bouvier)
The " BMW 750" is actually the BMW Z8

Bad for Business (Tecumseh Fox Book 2)
Bad for Business (Tecumseh Fox Book 2)
This book reminds me of movies from the 30's, full of plot twists, fast talk and witty repartee. It's a fun read, and even the murder doesn't feel too serious, since the victim is an unpleasant sort.

The story centers on Tingley's Tidbits, a venerable old company whose superlative gourmet treats are under attack by a saboteur who's adulterating the product with quinine. Sales are falling - and in the midst of the chaos Arthur Tingley is murdered.

Suspects abound: the lovely niece, who never got along with Uncle Arthur; Arthur's adopted son, who is fanatically anti-business; the entire production staff of Tingley's Tidbits; and certain corporate characters who are out to buy the business.

Tecumseh Fox is the detective, an alternate to Wolfe that Stout created at the request of his publishers. But contemporary readers rejected Fox unequivocally in favor of Nero Wolfe, and Stout dropped him pretty quickly. Stout also stole the plot of Bad for Business for the first Wolfe novella, called Bitter End.

I'd recommend reading the entire Wolfe series before this book, but for a Rex Stout fan, it still has considerable interest. Friends claimed that Fox was very much like Stout himself.
Mary Higgins Clark: Try to Remember
Mary Higgins Clark: Try to Remember
I was more interested in seeing how Max Martini [of The Unit] fared in this type of movie.

Lisa Monroe [Gabrielle Anwar] returns after fifteen years to her home town - she is now on the police force - and is now working alongside her former boyfriend, detective Joe O'Connor [Max Martini].

All the evidence points to Jenny Rands killer who has now been released from prison setting off a rash of murders of all who had testified against him. [Our bad boy sure had a look about him]

Jenny Rand appears to be, at sixteen, a flirt and a tease. And is willing, at first, to push the limit, thinking she could not get hurt.

I did miss the tease about the green car.

Eventually Lisa starts wondering about the murders - something just did not add up - Joe and the older cop wondered if Lisa could be objective.

The movie told the story exceptionally well - meaning I will watch it again - the characters were perfect in their parts - the sequence of murders were well constructed - I did so like Max as Joe - will be watching for any other movies he makes.

DEFINITELY RECOMMENDED - thoroughly enjoyable without too much gore. Although I do enjoy blood, guts and action.

Noble Born (Half-Blood Chronicles #2) (The Half-Blood Chronicles)
Chaos afoot! Ivy brought out the big guns for this tough as nails, action packed, heart pounding, pulse racing, adrenaline pumping, page flipping bombshell, showcasing 100% on point realism, wrapping this baby up sleek shiny and tight. Anarchy runs rampant and havoc is rife, rousting the drama, deception, intrigue, danger, spiraling suspense and unnerving situations, along with a double dose of chicanery while dodging disaster, you have one sensational experience. Braided, bound and tightly woven, noting the explosive ups and agonizing downs, putting our characters through their paces. Lines blur and boundaries crossed, limitations are pushed and manipulated, kicking this baby into overdrive, slamming it into a tailspin with astonishing impacts. Twixt, twinned and intermingled, exposing the intimidating trials and challenging tribulations along with a slew of shocking twists and startling turns, rolling with the current and breaking waves, catapulting this gem to staggering heights. The dynamics and contention in layer upon layer that you peel back with each page your drawn into this web so deep until everything else ceases to exist. The characters are complex and realistic with qualities and traits, adding diversity, transforming into amazing personalities. The scenes are strikingly sharp with abundant details and vivid descriptions, as to give you a full understanding and realism that balance and blend smoothly. Remarkable job Ivy, thanks for sharing this little guy with us.

I am voluntarily posting an honest review after reading an Advance Reader Copy of this story.

Purchased an HP 17 Notebook laptop after my 12 year old HP Pavillion ran flawlessly. Since windows 7 is no longer supported, I bought a new laptop in March. It worked flawlessly til about 10 days ago when lost abi;ity to print via a usb connected to wired printer. I started with Brother Printers and they were useless and said I needed a new all in one printer when this one worked fine. Next, was HP after waiting for hours, i was told to call windows. I then called Norton and they said add the printer to trust file. they wanted the ip address for the printer but since its not wireless that did not help. Then for 39.99 Geek Squad got my printer back. Then after 2 days same issue would not print so back to Geek Squad where I purchased a total Protection Plan $199.99 for 1 year. after 2 reps that wanted to me to go to a store, I got a level 3 tech that got me back, but as a result removed HP Support Assistant. Went back to HP tech support he said I was on the wrong operating system and I needed to reset. I Googled and the impression I got is the HP Support I really don't need. I am not sure to believe or who to believe.

OIVO PS4/ Slim/Pro Cooling Station, Vertical Cooling Stand with Upgraded Fan Indicator Lamps, Dual Controller Charger Station and Game Storage for Playstation 4 Console (Regular/Slim/Pro)
OIVO PS4 COOLING STAND WITH CHARGING DOCK FITS REGULAR, SLIM, AND PRO PS4.

The design is really nice and it is sturdy, the stand doesn’t have any balance issues and it has a solid base (galvanized metal). On one side it has a convenient storage area for 12 games, or films if you want to put films on it as well!On the other side it has an awesome charging station for two controllers! The LED indicator screens are so fun and satisfying, especially at night, you can see them really well during the day as well. It charged my controller quickly and the design is easy to use. The cooling fans work well, they kept my ps4 cool and they were super quiet, which is a major plus. The design makes it easy to turn the fans on and off whenever needed. There are LED lights where the fans are which give it a satisfying style, especially at night. You can only see the lights without the ps4 slim adapter that secures the PS4 slim in place though, so if you want to see the lights don’t use the adapter but just be careful not to knock your PS4 off the stand. It fits my PS4 slim perfectly with the adapter that comes with it so if you use it correctly you won’t have to worry about it falling over 😁

Overall I think it is a great product with a stylish, yet sturdy design. With some extra features that really help make it feel complete. The fans work to keep my PS4 from overheating without being too loud, and the lights are satisfying.

10/10 does what it’s supposed
8/10 lights (because you can’t see them unless you don’t use the adapter with the ps4 slim)
10/10 sturdy

Nouvelle Legende Faux Fur Sheepskin Premium Rug Duo (23 in. X 73 in.) White
Nouvelle Legende Faux Fur Sheepskin Premium Rug Duo (23 in. X 73 in.) White
I was a bit hesitant to buy this rug as there were no reviews. I noticed this brand has other faux sheepskin rugs with reviews (very favorable reviews overall) and hoped that this one would be inline with the others. I spent days researching all possible options. I even considered a real sheepskin pelt. I decided to go for it and ordered this one as it was the perfect size to be used as a runner on the side of my bed. After ordering it, I had a moment of panic and ordered two other rugs (a smaller faux sheepskin from another brand that received great reviews and a beautiful, plush shag runner from the Safavieh brand) in case I did not like this one. Well, this came first and I decided to keep it! Although it is thin and I placed padding underneath for comfort and also to keep it in place, it is otherwise close to perfect. It is extremely soft, i have not experienced any shedding, and it is machine washabable! I have not washed it yet and I will update my review if it doesn't wash well. I love how it is shaped like a real pelt and adds a beautiful look and feel to the room. As I mentioned, it is not thick and plush like a real sheepskin. I initially wanted that plushness but now I don't mind the lack of it as I am using it as a runner that I step on constantly. I will probably add more padding underneath it though. I also find the light ivory color is even and quite pleasant.
WARMIE Australian Sheepskin Super Thick Premium Shoe Insoles | Durable & Extra Fluffy
WARMIE Australian Sheepskin Super Thick Premium Shoe Insoles | Durable & Extra Fluffy
I opened the package and immediately put the insoles into my old but perfectly good Bear Paw slippers whose furry sheepskin lining had worn away. The insoles fit perfectly in my slippers and make them warm again. The thickness of the insoles makes the slippers a little tight, but walking in them will make them loosen in time. The only thing I was a little disappointed in was that the backing of the insoles seems to be made of cardboard. I'm not sure how durable that material will be, but for now, I'm satisfied.
Update, 1/20/18: The original Warmie sheepskin insoles lasted a year. When my heels started contacting the sheepskin backing (yes, there was skin under the fur) I ordered a new pair. I subtracted one star for the new pair, because they are not even as thick as the old pair was after a year of use. I will not order this brand of insole again.

Initial set up went pretty seamlessly however I am still having to tweak advanced setting and have had to restart the router a couple times already whereas I had almost no issues with my N600 over the coarse of the almost 5 years it was being used.
I am still a firm believer in the Netgear product though and will continue to use the wait and see approach for now.

I do like the Net Genie app and the Web GUI is still pretty user friendly for those with a bit of network understanding.

I abhor licorice. I saw these in a YouTube video where their reaction was intense, and it was described as salty licorice. I got them thinking maybe it would be fun to watch my friends try them. After I got the bag, i reluctantly had to try the first sample...

Salty? Ya, but who doesn't like salty! Licorice? I don't taste it, period. It tastes like maple syrup to me. The contrast is actually good! The only thing I'd be concerned about is if you bite into it, you're going to lose a filling or a tooth. They are chewy to the max.

If you want to try something unique, definitely give them a go.
Barratt Dip DAB X 10
Barratt Dip DAB X 10
One of my favorite candies! I had it once about 15 years ago in Ireland (though, I honestly can't say if that was Barratt branded too back then) Found them again on Amazon several months ago and have placed multiple orders since! I'm in the US and they're coming from over seas so the shipping takes a bit of time, but the price is great! This is very similar to their Sherbet Fountain candy, except this comes with a delicious lolly pop used for dipping (much like a fundip) rather than a disgusting black licorice string that does a poor job as a dipper. I will say, I don't think it's at all possible to eat this candy without spilling some of it on yourself, but maybe that's just me :P

Many of the little silver guns broke really quick, lots of slots for the guns but barely any in the package.
There were barricades that connected which are great, but quite a few that did not so fell over quite a bit.
My son had a blast none the less, so it was a great gift.
However he was disappointed there werent many little guns for the slots. Lots of assortment of stop sides a such, wasnt really expecting.
The plastic is pretty much the same throughout, classic army men.

Would really recommend thinking of putting connecting barricades and barbwire for a more stable standing for impatient little ones!
