Large Insulated Cooler Bag / Lunch Bag by Sacko (Red)

Awesome cooler. We used this last weekend to hold drinks for a family get together. It held 18 canned soda's and some ice. The drinks stayed cold and we were constantly replacing drinks. I love the small window on top so the drinks were easily removed without having to constantly zip and unzip the whole top. The little flap velcro's down to keep it closed I honestly believe that the window is part of the reason the drinks stayed so cold.
  The cooler is a large 13"(W) x 13"(H) x 8"(D). There are 2 mesh pockets, one on each side by the handle. These are great for keeping your keys or whatever. This is insulated but not waterproof. But it is a great cooler. Easy to carry on a picnic, to the beach, or even load food in it to take to a potluck. It will keep the heat in pretty good on warm dishes all.

Jelly Comb [Whisper-quiet] 2.4G Ultra Slim Portable Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Combo

I honestly hate the keyboard on my laptop, I so was thrilled to receive this set of wireless keyboard and mouse, and am still thrilled after using it.
  I played around with the mouse for this review and it worked very nicely. It scrolled smoothly, clicked easily, and is a very nice mouse. I just and used to my old mouse and did not want to change it out at the minute,
 The keyboard I am in love with. It does not have a number pad on it, just the row of number keys above the letters. It is easy to type with. You do not have to beat on the keys like with some keyboards. All of the regular keys are there, ctrl, alt, ect. It is 11 3/16 x 4 3/4  wide and tall. There is no caps lock light, the only drawback I found.
  The keyboard and mouse both take 3 AAA batteries, which are not included. Both work simultaneously with a single nano plug, which can be found in the battery compartment of the mouse.

Repel A Pest Ultrasonic Pest Repeller

This ultrasonic pest repeller is small only about 5 inches. It only has 1 tiny blue LED light on it. It is super quiet, I can't hear anything from it every standing right beside it. I have 2 dogs and neither of them seem to be affected by it.  I cannot say yes it works and will not. I do not have bugs but I do not want them either so I like to use this type of Pest Repeller instead of poisons. I have not seen a bug since I plugged it in.

Marrywindix 100 X Plastic Garden Label Tag Markers 10*6cm

I love these small plant labels. They are made of a thin white plastic. Write on them with either dry erase or permanent marker, so you can remember what you planted where. You could also write on a label or tape and stick it on the tag and reuse them later. With 100 in the set I know I won't have to worry about forgetting what I planted where. Works great in pots or in the ground.

US Art Supply 16" Tall Tripod Easel-Pine Wood-Painted Black (Pack of 4 Easels)

These are great tripod easels. They are made of pine. They are 16 inches tall. They come assembly required. The problem I had is you get no instructions on how to assemble. You do get all the wood and hardware, and no tools are required at all to put these together. They look very elegant and are great for making your artwork or for showing it off. These are 16"High x 12-1/2"Wide x 10-1/2"Deep and weigh only 12 ounces.

Audiobook Review of Resuscitation by D. M. Annechino

This is the 2nd book in the series by D. M. Annechino featuring lead Character  Sami Rizzo. This book can be read as a stand alone but if you read the first book "They Never Die Quietly" it will add more to a few references in the book. The book is a very fast paced always something going on book and I really enjoyed it. 
Sami Rizzo was a homicide detective in San Diago until she was kidnapped and nearly killed by a psychotic Killer. now she is going to school to become a social worker. She is living with her ex-partner Al.  She thinks she has it all. until bodies start turning up who were killed by someone who is doing vicious medical experiments on them.  Sami realizes she misses police work and goes back to solve the case. The killer is good so far he has left no witnesses and no evidence. Until he gets sloppy and leaves one of his victims alive. She is barely alive and he has to figure out how to get rid of her without getting caught.
I thought I had the killer figured out in this book, but I was very surprised at the end when the killer was named.
I really enjoyed this quick moving book. I did listen tot he audio book which was read by Christina Traister. She done a amazing job with her narration. 'You were right there in each conversation. /you could hear every emotion in the book, She really brought the characters to life in the book. i will be looking for more books narrated by her.

Book Blast for Fairly Certain by Deborah Ann Davis

Fairly Certain
by Deborah Ann Davis


GENRE:  Young Adult Fiction



Fairly Certain is the unlikely adventure of nineteen year old Petir Capota, a computer geek who finds himself back in the days of Robin Hood after falling out of a tree in Connecticut. He awakens surrounded by a band of young British scavengers, clothed as if in Old England. His instinct to freak out is tempered by the arrival of a fair maiden wearing a bow…and arrow. Normally, fair maiden types don’t go for computer geek types, but for some reason, Petir is fairly certain he can do whatever he wants in this realm.

With the conflict of the Royals escalating, Maid Rianne has joined the outlaws hiding in the forest, outwardly defying the handsome and accomplished knight to whom she is promised. She is fairly certain she merely feels flattered by Lord Petir’s uncensored admiration of her skills with the staff and bow, the same unmaidenly pursuits disdained by her own knight. However, that does not explain the quickening of her pulse produced by Lord Petir’s unguarded gaze.

The outlaws bring Petir to their camp to tend his injuries. To Petir’s delight, and to Maid Rianne’s dismay, they invite him to join their merry band. It’s all fun and games until she is captured by the enemy. Now, a geek with no ability to defend himself must find a way to rescue the fair maiden.



Petir gently jostled Maid Rianne. “Lord Robert’s a jackass, Rianne. How can he not appreciate what an incredible warrior you are?”

She blushed at his words. “Lord Robert knows what it takes to compete. ’e is correct. I have never succeeded.” She eased away from him. “You are kind, although you do not understand competition.”

But she was wrong. No one would compare Ping-Pong to swinging a sword, but the principles were the same. He had to choose his words carefully if he was going to make her hear him. “I understand enough about competition to know the only one you really compete against is yourself. Who cares if you win against a bush-league opponent if you played your worst? Where’s the honor in that?"

"There is none, of course."

“Right, but if you achieve your personal best, who cares if you lose? You can’t control who shows up to compete. You only have control over who you bring to compete.”

Maid Rianne regarded him with her mouth open after his outpouring of words. “Yea verily, Lord Petir. Ye must teach me about your Ping-Pong. It has served you well.”

Once again, he took her by the shoulders. They were firm and warm under the fabric of her dress. He ignored the thumping in his chest caused by her proximity. “Go compete, Maid Rianne. Show them what a true warrior can do.”

Maid Rianne took a deep breath and placed her hands on his cheeks, drawing his face down to her. She kissed him soundly. “I will win this tournament for you, m’lord.” Grabbing her discarded bow and quiver, she darted into the fair, leaving him reeling.
