  • Sussy - Amazing product

    Since using this product I have noticed differences in my body. I feel more rested, no more allergies, do not get sick as often as I used to with the flu. Definitely recommend it!

  • Rondakay - Great

    I have loved all of Heather Graham's books and and this one didn't disappoint. She keeps you so wrapped up in the story, the history and the mystery surround it, I have yet to be right about who I think the bad guy is at the end, with the clever way she keeps you guessing right up to the last minute. I loved this one with Charlie and Ethan. I sure hope Heather doesn't run out of characters to write about for the Krewe. Love this series.

  • THOMAS H. MCBRIDE - QuickBooks 2014 is a must have

    If you are using a previous version of Quickbooks, do yourself a favor and upgrade to 2014 and watch your frustrations go "POOF" into thin air. Looks like they put a lot of thought into this version.

  • J. Moore - Microsoft never fails...

    To disappoint. Any version of Office past 2003 is garbage. Take your ribbon design and... well you know what to do M$. No one likes the newer version of Office, except those who sell training manuals for us to re-learn the same mundane skills we already learned years ago. Not that I'd buy a book on Office, but many would. And given the hardcore burying job Microsoft has done with every single feature you use in each app, you'll find yourself digging and cursing when all you want to do is [insert any function that an office product does here].

  • wotsuhthedeal - No words

    I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan. I still cannot put into words how great this album is. I have been listening to it for over 20 years. I think my first copy was in 82 when I was 8 or 9 years old. To go through and break the songs down one by one would take away from the purpose of the album. If you listen to this it must be all the way the through. Sure, I can now skip around but that is because I have the thing memorized. I don't even think I can name favorites because at one time or another every song except the story pieces was a favorite. The vocals as with anything Pink Floyd releases are less important then the actual words, the music, nothing compares to this. It has more of the Roger Waters feel to it then any other release except The Final Cut. You can talk all day about concept albums, The Who's Tommy, Queen Night at the Opera and Genesis Lamb Lies Down on Broadway come to mind but none compare to The Wall. You get the story of a young man who is named Pink. The songs weave a story of his overprotective mother, infidelity and loads of paranoia. This is Roger Waters masterpiece. Sure I am a bigger fan of David Gilmour but Roger shows that he had a touch of Syd Barrett-esque genius. Please do not buy this and only listen to Another Brick in the Wall or Comfortably Numb. Listen to it all the way through. I find it works perfect at work. The lady in the cubicle next to mine has even started to like it. I heard her singing some of it the other day. I still do not consider this their best album or their most essential, I would go in this order, 1. Wish You Were Here 2. Dark Side of the Moon 3. A Saucerful of Secrets 4. The Wall and after that is up to you but be warned. Once pulled into the world of Pink Floyd it's hard to get out. My collection now consists of over 100 cds, bootlegs, live and studio and I am still looking for more. No question in my mind they are the greatest band ever, Radiohead, U2, listen to Floyd and hear the influence whether they admit it or not. Sure The Wall has some teenager-angst but still it is perfect in telling the story of the life of Pink. Don't forget the DVD, it's great too. Definite buy

  • Tangie - Love hits at the craziest time.

    I fell inlove with this series the first time. Now that it has been extended with more in depth information on the characters its definitely the best. I absolutely love that they have each others back and when one falls inlove they do what ever is necessary to make it happen. We get a glimpse into one of my favorite couples Missy and Roi. They definitely are funny. Ahhh but Peren and Lukian are the 1 couple. Now when you get ready for the next book you will intrigued.
