5.0 out of 5 stars Great deal, and great quality, April 3 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very sturdy when put together, fold out and flatten very easily, in one piece. I like the latch on this crate. So far it's puppy proof and comfy.I got the medium, for having as the dog grows, and with its headspace, and width it's very worth the price.

This review is from: Lamo Men's Moc Flat (Apparel)
very cozy and comfortable. these have a rubber support soul to them, not like the traditional all suede including bottom, which I find wears out or gets slippery after some wear. These have good lasting power for the general fit and cushy lining.

The Wait
The Wait
by MS Kellie Frances Joyce
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging creative and a learning experience!, Sept. 18 2014
This review is from: The Wait (Paperback)
this is a brave and difficult book at the same time....but worth the time for the experience of compassion fighting harsh times...the creative choices of prose, prose-poetry, is very engaging in helping to tell the story too. I think people need to hear the hard stuff, to understand the need for change in mental-health issues and care, as far as stigma and 'socially taboo' subjects are concerned. It is a book that works towards understanding and moving past stigma to open dialogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great double feature, June 7 2009
I've always been a fan of the black & white classic "in Cold Blood". It looks spectacular now on Blu-ray, a strong image with presence and rich blacks and detail. Pairing it up with Capote was a great idea and the two films are a good compliment, one a well made "Bio pic.-Drama" pic. of Truman Capote the author of the original book and the other, the great film based on the book... a great buy and a good addition to my Blu-ray collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very pleasant surprise, May 11 2008
This review is from: Nintendo DS Lite Cobalt and Black
I've resisted getting any hand held game system for a long time. Brain Age got me interested in trying a DS. I love it. The Deep blue colour is really a nice rich colour. a very grown up aesthetic to see the black and blue colour combo.
My personal test of any simple electronics device or software is basic: without reading instructions, how much can I just figure out by trying it out. Well The DS won the test. I opened the case, flipped open the top on the unit , switched on and the first thing that happened was a welcoming setup screen that was very straightforward to use. Very user friendly from the word go. The screens are great, the size and layout of controls are pretty intuitive.

Had a ball with it from the word go. So I have to eat my words about hand helds as kids stuff because I was totally engrossed by the interactive experience: touch screen, voice recognition, electronic writing pad and sound sensitive too, with some games. I got Brain Age to start with and it uses the DS functions very well. Not a childish game or system, if you don't want it to be.

I'm a forty something man that has always had just a casual players love for gaming and realized what a great way to pass the time while commuting. Test my IQ and "exercise" my brain, do sudoku or maybe even dip into a bit of Mario for some fun. I look forward to more fun and interesting games & applications with it. A comfortable gaming system with great functionality and a broader range of age appropriate games, for many types, than you might expect.
