I have used QB for a very long time...way before Intuit made a version for the MAC. I have been a recent convert from the PC, roughly 2 years. It all came about because I had a series of viruses and "Window" errors that drove me to the point of despair. Along came one of my good friends and colleagues with a gift of my very first MAC a MacBook. I went from total despair to "why the heck didn't I do this years ago". Anyway I am know 100% MAC. Luckily Intuit has understood that migration from PC's to MACs is an ongoing phenomena which will not slow down. I started using QB for MAC as soon as it came out. It makes bookkeeping sooo easy, neat and quick. I should know, I am an accountant by trade (CPA). I've used heavy duty systems and other light versions. QB MAC is, hands down, the best!! NOW, if Intuit made its TURBO TAX software in MAC then they would be hitting a home run. I can't wait to see that happen.
Have fun using QB for MAC!!
I could see and feel a cold sore starting just under my lower lip. Immediately I remembered the free sample of New Orajel Single Dose Cold Sore Treatment that I had received from Smiley360. So I got the package and read the directions found on the insert inside the plastic casing. It was easy to use. After washing the infected area with a clean cloth, you squeeze the little vial until it crushes together and the medication goes onto the tip, gently put the tip on the cold sore and press lightly until it starts to feel numb, then rub it in until you have used all the medication in the vial. The Orajel Single Dose Cold Sore Treatment immediately took away any pain or sensation of the oncoming cold sore. It was instant relief. So fast and effective that I didn't need to try anything else and it was completely gone by the next day. I've never had anything work that quickly before! I would definitely purchase and recommend this product to others. I am so glad I received a free sample of New Orajel(tm) Single Dose Cold Sore Treatment from Smiley360.
THERE ARE NO SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW!
I've been waiting for months for Still Missing to be released. With all of the advance press and buzz it has been generating, people have been writing tons of reviews containing intimate story details that I didn't want to hear about before reading the book, and I've found it very difficult to keep forcing myself not to read them. So I won't do that to you in this review.
What is commonly known about Still Missing is that it is focused around Annie, a Realtor, who is abducted while running an open house. When I started the book, I expected the entire story to be about the abduction, her survival, and eventual escape. I was wrong. The abduction, and her survival through it (and being that the book is written in the first person as Annie talks to her therapist, the fact that she survives is no secret) is only half of the book. It's the vivid and introspective view into what happens to Annie AFTER the abduction, including some completely unexpected plot twists, where the story gets interesting.
Annie is a raw person. The author has spent a great deal of time developing Annie's psychology and internal thought processes, and this is shared with the reader, making Annie a three-dimensional person with real feelings and a real life. She says what is on her mind, and she doesn't hold back. She has the ability to utilize language you would expect of a truck driver, and uses it as she sees fit. But she is not crude - she is a sharp-witted, intelligent, smart-mouthed survivor whose brilliant comebacks often had me laughing out loud. I fell in love with Annie, her damaged psyche notwithstanding. Still Missing is told in the first person, and the reader really gets to feel as though they are a part of Annie's mind. By the end of the book, I felt like I knew her as a real person. For these horrible things to be happening to someone who I felt I knew, was almost unbearable.
And that's the beauty of Still Missing. Yes, there are some grisly details - there has to be, in order for the reader to be able to understand Annie's justifications, and realize the true horror of the situation. However, these are masterfully intermixed with different, saner events within the story's timeline, filling out the background story and the characters involved. This gives the reader a rest from the horror - but that doesn't mean that you won't be blindsided around the next corner!
Eventually the flashback timeline joins the present day timeline, and just when you think you've got the story figured out, and are expecting things to wind down - some totally unexpected plot twists are thrown your way. Annie's adaptation to these plot twists make for my favorite part of the story - they really show what she is truly made of.
Still Missing is publicized as being "unputdownable" and this statement is truth in advertising. I could not put down this book, I HAD to know what was going to happen next. Practically everywhere you look, popular summer reading lists are proclaiming Still Missing as the "book of the summer" - and with good reason. Reading articles online about Still Missing, I saw that this is Chevy Stevens' debut novel, and on the strength of it she was signed to a three-book deal: a virtually unheard-of event. The publisher has mounted a massive campaign behind it, and rights to the book have been sold worldwide. There is a very good reason for all of this: Still Missing is a GREAT BOOK!
Will Still Missing appeal to you? I am a middle-aged family man. I loved the book. My wife loved the book. In fact, I haven't met anyone who didn't love this book. It left me thinking about it for days afterward - and to me, that is the indication that I have just read something great. I would recommend it to anyone.
Last year(October 2012), I had purchased the Chicco C6 Stroller, which is super light, easy for travel, and doesn't tip over when you take your child out and have a heavy backpack hanging on the handles. Initially, I loved the Chicco but as my daughter got older I realized that I needed a little more to a travel stroller. After comparing multiple strollers, I settled on this one. I purchased this stroller in August or September, and let. me. tell. you...I'm glad I did. I love this stroller and so does my 19 mo daughter! She loves it so much that she voluntarily gets into it to take a nap while we are out and about. This stroller had everything that I was looking for:
-An almost full-reclining seat, which leads to longer naps. :o)
-Adjustable foot rest.
-Belly bar(My daughter doesn't like it, so I don't use it).
-High seat back for extra growing room(My daughter is on the tiny side for 19 mo. She is 19lbs and about 31". I believe she has about 8 to 10 inches of growing space).
-The HUGE sunshade(when my daughter is upright, she likes to have the sunshade all the way down so she can hide and put her feet in it).
-The handles are the right height for me(I'm 5'4") and my dad(who is 6'2") doesn't complain about kicking the wheels while he pushes his granddaughter around.
-The extra storage basket is nice too. Of course the basket loses storage space when the seat is reclined but that is expected.
-The cup holder is a nice add-on, but when you are vacationing with multiple adults you need more space. For that, I purchased the JL Childress Cups 'N Cargo Stroller Organizer(a lot easier than carrying around a backpack).
-Easy and smoothe maneuverability, even with one hand!
-Rear-wheel lock is easy to use.
-Easy to fold and store away.
-Free rain cover!
-You do need to be careful of how much weight you hang on the handles. It WILL NOT tip while your little one is in it, but when you take them out...TIMBER! That is something I have yet to get used to but it doesn't bother me much.
-The front wheels need to be in a certain position in order to lock into place...a little annoying but no biggie.
I did add Skip Hop Memory Foam Stroller Liner for a little extra padding. However, when folding the stroller the extra pad kind of gets in the way. In order for the stroller to lock you have to tuck the sides of the pad into the stroller.
If you are looking for a great travel or even an everyday stroller, I definitely recommend this one!
How can I add anything to my fellow readers' reviews? This series is delightful, and gets more amusing with every new episode... where does Ms. Evanovich get these characters from? I just giggled and chortled - but you care about the characters, too, and the Morelli/Stephanie romance(personally, I think it is MORELLI at the end)is great dramatic suspense - but believable, too. Keep 'em coming, Janet... You are only gaining as you keep going with this series...
