1.0 out of 5 stars PRIMITIVE 2G (2nd generation technology) PHONE--EN FRANCAIS, Sept. 10 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
SACRE BLEU! Rogers has stopped carrying the Doro Seniors Cell Phone. So I thought I would try Brand X. I got two Jethros separately and couldn't set up either. I took the first to my Rogers (service provider) store where my SIM card tested in working order. The helpful clerk installed it and it would not connect. After 30 minutes he declared it defective, so I returned it and ordered a second one. The SIM connected, but there was no introductory setup menu. The instruction booklet omitted the beginning setup instructions. Jethro, wake up, who is buying these and why not an iPhone? I suspect it was refurbished, though sold as new, because it was apparently set up in French. I spent an hour on the phone with the helpline, including returning it to factory settings, and nothing worked. Tried to set up Voicemail by pressing and holding 1 -- no dice. Technician referred me to Rogers service, and that was the end for me. Back that went and I ordered a 3G Doro.

5.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC & USEFUL GUIDE, Sept. 1 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Yoga Self-Taught (Paperback)
This Belgian yogi pioneered yoga in Europe in the early/middle 20th century. It is a detailed guide to every essential asana [posture], with both right and wrong form shown in photographs. To this day a useful comprehensive guide. For years I have been doing, with great profit, the sequence of asanas he says came from the Sivananda ashram in India. The dietary advice is passé. The book is out of print. There is great variation in price from second hand dealers. I got a copy in excellent condition at no charge, by just paying $8.00 postage from England.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED, Sept. 1 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This [to me] represents a fascinating and bizarre side eddy of European Catholicism. My introduction to the subject was seeing a bizarrely bejewelled skeleton under an altar in Old St Peter's Church in Munich. It was labeled St Perdita, patroness of single women. This book tells and richly illustrates the hundreds of skeletons of alleged Roman martyrs, exported to Northern Europe to replace the relics destroyed in the vandalisms of the so-called Reformation. The newly rediscovered Roman catacombs were ransacked of remains assumed to be Roman martyrs, though it turns out that some are post Edict of Toleration. Some were identifiable; anonymous ones were given names and shipped north, mainly to German lands reconverted from Protestant to Catholic and denuded of art, statues, stained glass, and relics. The remains were extravagantly decorated, with macabre results to the modern eye, many later debunked and hidden away. I found it fun and fascinating reading.

Big deal body spray! They want you to spray deodorant chemicals all over your body to use it up and buy more. Preposterous! Comes in different scents. I find the citrus scent strong and pleasant. If out of stock here, try a drug store.

4.0 out of 5 stars LOSS OR THEFT: AT THIS PRICE, WHO CARES?, Sept. 1 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Years ago I lost an Omega watch and resolved to never again own an expensive watch. I am now on my third Easy Reader and like it just fine. The dial is uncluttered, highly readable, and does the only thing I need from a watch--tell time accurately. The gold-tone, battery and strap all last a few years. When one or the other wears out, I throw away the watch and buy a new one. At this price, who needs the hassle and expense of a new battery or strap when you will still have a worn-looking watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars EFFECTIVE WHEN DUST FREE, Sept. 1 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works as advertised to hold rug in place. Seems to be sturdy enough. One reviewer complained about its slipping. This will only happen if the pad, rug and floor are dusty and hence reduce the friction required to hold rug in place. The remedy is to vacuum both sides of rug, clean the floor so that it is dust-free and, as necessary, rinse and dry pad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Important, if limited, nutritional guidance, Sept. 1 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book emphasizes the nutritional fact that the type of fats you eat are a route to good health. Dr Hyman states that a low-fat diet is a mistake. One should avoid trans and saturated fats and ingest, in moderation, unsaturated and monounsaturated fats. He makes a convincing case in a well-written book.

5.0 out of 5 stars WATER WATER EVERYWHERE, Sept. 1 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There are many occasions when a faucet with cold water is available but no cup/glass to use it. So I carry the one-cup size in my shoulder bag everywhere. It is sold for camping, but very useful in the city. I first got the 2-cup size which proved bulky; I returned it and ordered the one-cup size which is big enough and portable, collapsed.

4.0 out of 5 stars FOUR A MONTH, Sept. 1 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Four stars means "I like it", not "I love it" in the sense of liking Brazil nuts. They arrived promptly, fresh and wholesome. I got these because of Dr. Michael Greger's book "How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease", available on Kindle. He adduces a study saying that 4 Brazil nuts a MONTH markedly reduces your blood bad cholesterol readings. I haven't tested this, but--in extreme moderation--these nuts are good for you. At four a month, this 1k bag will last a long time in the freezer.
