In My Own Words:
The Amazon Community mourns the loss of Reg Garrard, on March 18. He joins Stephen Haines who died on March 24, 2009 at 1245 am. A beloved and admitted curmudgeon, he brought light and life to me and my friends. I shall miss his words of truth and irony.

The Amazon reviewing community mourns the passing of Bob Zeidler, an amazing human being who contributed so much to the classical music l… Read more

Luxury pure linen white napkins set of 6 hand embr&hellip by Linen Scotland
These linen napkins are lovely, handmade linen, and expensive. However, that will not deter me from using these often. Linen is a material that becomes softer and more beautiful with use.

These napkins have a nice design, and they are a little larger than most napkins. If you spill something in these napkins, take care of it right away.

I put them in the dryer with other clothing, but remove them before completely dry, fold them, and put them away. A few wrinkles never hurt anything. You can iron them if you want, but I prefer… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Cleaner, 29 Aug 2014
The. Mr Clean Extra Power Magic Eraser were recommended to me by a young woman who cleans homes. She told me they are the best for any pitching that requires a lot if scrubbing. I looked at the reviews on Amazon and wow, do they agree.

I then used it around the rim of the toilet near the floor, sparkling again. However, the more you scrub, the less eraser you have. It seems to disintegrate as you clean. That his fine, but these are fairly expensive to use this way. Now, I have a fridge whose… Read more

We Are Not Ourselves by Matthew Thomas
5.0 out of 5 stars A Video Of Their Lives, 28 Aug 2014
"We are not ourselves / When nature, being oppressed, commands the mind / To suffer with the body." King Lear

This may be the best book of the year, but it takes a couple of chapters to figure this out. The reward of this book was worth it. Hang in there. We are there for the story of Eileen Tumulty, and her Irish American family in New York. Her childhood, the daughter of alcoholic parents, a mother and father who didn't talk, left everything unsaid, that led to Eileen becoming the mother, cooking, cleaning, part time job, all the while she is going to school. She is bright and she is beautiful. Eileen wanted to be a lawyer, but became a nurse instead. Throughout her life,… Read more
