  • Amazon Customer - Great toy.

    Bought as a birthday present for a four year old. Did not leave her side for the first week afterwards. Great toy.

  • Linda B - Stronger nails instead of splitting!

    My nails are noticeably stronger since taking this supplement as indicated (2 a day). They had been splitting and catching on my clothes. This is a wonderful product.

  • Robert A. Yourell - Flaws Nobody Talks About

    The large number of features and power of OneNote make it's limitations all the more galling. The biggest problem for me is that OneNote outlines (whether page level, pages, or sections) do not transfer their functionality to Word (or vice versa). Once the text is in Word, the heading styles are lost. That's just goofy. The Outline capacity in Word is very important. If you haven't tried it, fire up Word and click View Outline. There's plenty of info on how to use the Outline feature in Word. This is so obvious, and so easy to fix (persistence of level styles is all I ask).

  • Lady Ruth - Great Product!

    I found this product is absolutely wonderful. Purchased it for someone who has had trouble for a few years with their nostrils being dry from oxygen use. They report they had immediate relief after 1 use. They don't find it necessary to use it every day, just a few times per week. They indicate they would definitely recommend it to any one with nasal dryness. Eliminated nosebleeds caused by the dryness.
