4.0 out of 5 stars A quirky and fun ride!, Dec 18 2014
I think you have to get on board for something quirky right off the top or you won't enjoy this much. If you do quirk well, then you'll love this!

This is exactly what I was looking for - easy to use, read, and decipher! This atlas has it all, but if you want an atlas just to learn the basics, this is ideal! The price-point is amazing too! I would have gladly spent twice this to have such a useful, well organized, and pretty atlas. Something every household should have, I think, and not the old, outdated, cumbersome horrors we used to have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive!, Dec 11 2014
Just a rollicking, fast paced good time! I watched this on Netflix and it was impossible to watch only one episode at a time. I think season two is better than the first season, with a more compelling story{ies} line, more suspense and the characters more fleshed out. While we are interested in the characters, the mercantile backdrop is so interesting as well. And throw in a war and some scandal and it's a lot to take in! Interesting, compelling and absolutely addictive!

2.0 out of 5 stars I love period pieces, Sept. 6 2014
I love period pieces; I love slow paced, soulful, interesting stories. But this just was deadly dull to me. I watched it on Netflix and could not finish it. It defeated me. I don't believe the attraction between the two leads was believable. Dickens wasn't shown as that compelling, and Nelly was luke warm as well. I wasn't even sure that I was supposed to find their relationship romantic or special. Their physical scenes weren't sexy or connected feeling. Their connectedness with relation to his writing, only middling, as well. Overall, a fail for me.

While the illustrations are dear, I find them a little complex and small in order to develop an instant connection with them. The rhymes are a little problematic for me too, as they don't scan perfectly. A cute book, but I was a little underwhelmed...

2.0 out of 5 stars Had its day, and the message was bad then!, June 21 2014
My cousin loaned this book to me at 10 or 11, and honestly, I had hugely mixed feelings about it then, and as an adult I still do. While it may have been revolutionary at the time, it sends a message that girls are inherently not ok with maturing, that they compete for their bodies to grow breasts and get their periods, that fitting in with the right crowd is essential - and other negative stereotypes we'd be well to dispel. The only way this book is useful, imho, is to read it with your daughter and point out the nonsense in it.

God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes!, June 20 2014

Not the easiest read, but a grand one. You can 'hear' his thought processes and respect his sometimes wayward ramblings, because they appear to be products of his earliest outrages against 'nonsense'. His scope is impressive due to his worldwide travels and participation in many religious observances. This Hitchens quotation, sums up his approach. Some find it needlessly combative, but it sings with truth to me....

“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.”

Sam Harris is one of the most approachable of the 'new atheists' and delivers a hard hitting, no frills, rational refutation of ancient beliefs. In this small book, he gives ammunition to atheists to help clarify and defend their own views, and perhaps a boost to the fence sitters that are having trouble giving themselves a final push. His reductionist arguments, his insistence that you make a stand, and his barrage against the airy-fairy, are refreshing and freeing. He exposes all myth based dogma as inherently false and ultimately dangerous. A great push for humanism with its ultimate concern for societal well-being and progress...Full of absolute gems..."Our country now appears, as at no other time in her history, like a lumbering, bellicose, dim-witted giant." and "The process of scientific conquest and religious forfeiture has been relentless, one directional, and utterly predictable." Sam Harris is never, as some accuse atheists of being, strident. He lets the facts speak for themselves. And at the end you feel his deep concern for a world who puts ancient, divisive, cruel nonsense above rational enquiry on how best to live moral, healthy, happy lives...

A no-brainer for the car plus any other place where a full sized vacuum is awkward! This is powerful, light, and keeps its charge for ....well, I've never run out of power! It's easy to store on its base, ready to go. I'm completely happy with this product.
