3.0 out of 5 stars Takes a big heart to forgive, June 5 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Wednesday Letters (Paperback)
and to forgive in this BIG a way. When your world comes crashing down and you lose not just one of your parents but BOTH in a single night, followed by even bigger news once unleashing of a pantry stocked skeleton closet; its enough to make anyone go loopy.

However as with all 'make it right with God' styled books, this one sorts itself out and the characters all live happier ever after.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
So you've decided on a flock of your own.....now what? Well you could buy up a whole bunch of books that have extensive mumbo jumbo about what the author thinks about their particularly favoring breed, have your head swimming in crafty ideas on coops that look good but lack function - or you could pick up this book. Get the basics of the important info & then once you really have your flock going, become breed specific w/ that fancy smancy coop.

My bouquet for this review would include a single Iris coupled with orange roses, surrounded by periwinkle & sprigs of mistletoe

Its always great to be able to watch a series from the 1st Season to the Current one & not only be reminded of fantastic episodes, but to catch little nuggets you may have missed while watching it televised.

2.0 out of 5 stars So saddening, June 5 2014

This review is from: Monster Love (Paperback)
This book as a whole emphasizes the disintegration of people's morals due to the abuse they suffered at the hands of their own parents. A reminder that personalities are crafted not only by nature but how children are nurtured as well.

There are lots of simplistic patterns in this book that can be put to many uses. I've stitched a few of the patterns from here and have been quite happy with the results.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Miyazaki, March 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're looking for Hayao Miyazaki's creatively drawn beauty, you will find in here. However, if you're hoping for a heart tugging, character loving, watch it to the very end and then rewatch some day down the road kind of movie, you will be very disappointed.

This story was lethargically drawn out, we put it on slow forward to get past the dullest of scenes and still it did not impress. Characters were empty and there was no real connection to any of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just not for me, March 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Clearly I am lacking in the skills of crochet as even with these step by step configurations for the cute robots, I was left in tangles and knots. The creativity is here in this book, and had I been able to be more 'smooth' with the skills I could have rated higher, but alas, it was not so.

Very Helpful. There were many eye opening aspects that I hadn't put into consideration when planning our herd. There were more technical areas addressed that wouldn't be top of my mind while speaking to our local cattle ranchers for their expertise.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awkward, March 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Expected to be a fun 'pretend your a farmer' kind of game I was quickly disappointed to find out even the basic controls of handling the tractor were awkward and cumbersome. There is no choice of 'let me just raise computer generated cows and be done with it' in this Simulator. You are required to go through all the steps of sowing, growing, harvesting, selling....etc.

Perhaps there's a "Cattle Ranching" or "Virtual 4H'er" game out there that would be more fun. As for this game, its in the bottom of the drawer where sad games go to die.
