  • Grit Lit - Finally!

    At last there's a reason to get back on board with the Best American Essays! I had stopped picking up annual volumes of this series as there seemed to be too many esoteric pieces of interminable length and no point. But Cheryl Strayed, this year's editor, did a great job choosing essays that aren't just "think pieces" but where people live interesting lives, act and change. The essays are beautifully written and some bring tears. If you've never tried this series, start here.

  • Charile - One of the best shows on tv!

    I love this show! I can really relate to the struggles they go through because I have been there myself.

  • Haily Radnor - Great Ball

    Great all around indoor ball. The grip allows me to set the ball fairly descent; additionally I can get a really good standing floater serve in. The only thing that concerns me is that I do have to check the PSI before every use. It does seem to require some air more often than not; but then again this is my first ball I've ever purchased so I don't know if all balls require that or not. Either way, this is my go to ball.

    What a horrible device. 5 test strips later and still not a reading. I have the app and the device. First time out of the box and many hoops to jump through I was able to get a reading. Next morning the only thing this device could do was show the round swirly thing. Tried everything to try and get a reading. 5 test strips later and a lot of frustration, rechecked the instructions. Nothing on problems with a meter not taking input. However if you want to learn how to put a plastic sanitary bag over your phone there's an entire page dedicated to that. Absolutely unbelievable. Stay away from this device.
