3.0 out of 5 stars "Vegan, Kosher and Gluten-Free, Zero Calories; All Natural" HOT DAMN!, July 23 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
DRUM ROLL . . . SO'S WATER. I see no point to any soda pop, sugared or otherwise. These Zevia sodas are a reasonable simulation of the sugared varieties. I find all artificial sweeteners teasers, keeping one's sweet fixation alive. And the various ingredients run from innocent to suspect to carcinogenic [caramel coloring]. I ordered a case of this diet cherry soda and addictively finished it in no time. It's the same price at Bulk Barn at 99 cents a can, sold singly. Once you accustom yourself to all-natural gluten-free vegan kosher halal WATER with or without meals, you come to like it.

I see no point to any soda pop, sugared or otherwise. These Zevia sodas are a reasonable simulation of the sugared varieties. But the various ingredients run from innocent to suspect to carcinogenic [caramel coloring]. Once you accustom yourself to water with your meals, it works just fine.

4.0 out of 5 stars STURDY APRON, July 23 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am indifferent to the allegedly humorous message, only wanting a sturdy well-made apron to protect my clothes in the kitchen. Most online aprons are a ridiculous price with stupid messages. This one was from the cheapest source and I waited 3-4 weeks for it. The slide through adjustable neck loop is part of the waist ties. I put a few stitches on each side to fix it in place. Next time I will shop at a restaurant supply store and cut the wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars FABULOUS MACHINE ONCE SET UP, July 23 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
But setup is the rub. Luckily I have a wizard AV genius who can set up anything. Consumer Report top-rated it. The multiple capabilities of this machine are awesome. It does everything well ONCE SET UP. The wi-fi capability really complicates the setup. The fax feature requires a separate telephone line or you can just plug it into your landline, which it interferes with, when you are going to use it in or out [which in my case is almost never]. This printer is obviously a loss leader for the expensive ink to follow. But as Tony Soprano says: "Aw f--k it, what're you going to do?!"

5.0 out of 5 stars WOKE UP AND SMELLED THE COFFEE, July 23 2014
I downloaded this book when it came out after reading a review in a local newspaper. Then it just sat in my iPad until I was ready to read and apply it. At age 70 I started to apply the suggestions. I quit drinking, overeating, eating too much salt, sugar, and fats. I took up oats, greens, berries, nuts, kefir etc etc. I went to the gym almost daily for cardio, weights, yoga, elliptical. Long story short: I lost 50 pounds, reached goal weight which I have maintained for 2 years. My life-long low-grade depression has lifted, and I have never felt so well in my life. It all started with this book--and didn't finish there. I have read Dr. David Agus' A Short Guide to a Long Life and The End of Illness (original longer version) and In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan. These latter books are consistent with 100 Simple Things. [P.S. Moderate doses of caffeine ok.]

Shoppers Drug Mart has this for $6-7 dollars. This is not the first price trap I have seen on this site.

5.0 out of 5 stars NEED 2 PLIERS TO PULL APART, April 28 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
OK, I exaggerate. But this is the strongest velcro fastening I have ever experienced. I used two 1" [complementary] pieces to stabilize my iPad Snugg flap for increased stability and it sure does the job. I got white since this was all that was on offer. Another time I would have got black--less eye catching. But this 15' roll will be a lifetime supply.

1.0 out of 5 stars LUDICROUS PRICE, April 28 2014
I don't hate the product which I haven't even tried yet, but I do hate the vendor. I bought this today at Loblaws Drugstore, Maple Leaf Gardens, for $9.49 + HST. This is not the first time I have seen an outside vendor (not Amazon) try to snare the naive with an outlandish price.

1.0 out of 5 stars SCIMPY MOP HEAD, March 6 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been searching for a dish mop with a thick clump of cotton at the business end that could, for instance, fill a drinking glass to really clean it. No such luck. The Scotch one you see everywhere is thin. So I figured a BBQ mop [this one] would be fuller. Nope. Back it goes.

I bought one of these elsewhere and found the mop end so thin as to render it useless. I checked Amazon.ca for a dish mop with a thicker crown and, low and behold, just found this again. I have had dish mops in the past with 2-3 times the mop head.
