Local Mom Will Sure Miss Buying Overpriced Toys at ToysRUs

It was magic, going to the giant toy store as a child, reminisces local mom Ann Setter.

But going as an adult, with a small child? “Less magical. As an adult, a brown box waiting at the front door seems like a fairytale”, she says. “What ToysRUs missed is the magic of shopping on my couch, or during a boring soccer practice. I can skip the trip and the tantrum, and still win big at birthday parties without ever lifting more than a finger”.

Finally! Fish Oil Supplements Not Sourced from Goldfish


Amazon Review “Quality Encapsulation, Omega 3 Fish Oil”

These are fish oil supplements. They are easy to swallow with water. I did not try to swallow them with any other liquid, so I can’t tell you how they would go down with prune juice or diet club soda. They come in a white bottle printed with the brand details and recommended dosage. I keep the bottle inside my fridge on the first shelf in the door, so I know where to find them, but the label definitely helps. Labels are sure handy.I have taken multiple types of fish oil over the last several years, and did not notice any difference when I switched to this brand. So it may deserve 5 stars, but since I did no independent lab testing, I can’t be sure. I did not notice any fish smell, or any fishy side effects, for that matter. These fish oil pills did not improve my ability to swim underwater or grow scales.

These fish oil pills did not improve my ability to swim underwater or grow scales.

The fish oil capsules are clear, so you can see the oil inside each capsule is a light yellow. Seems like the right color, based on other fish oil pills I have taken in the past. I would be a bit suspicious if they were another color. Thankfully this company does not source any of the oils from goldfish.

In Review: Niece Not Excited to Receive Bearded Doll with Machine Gun for Christmas.

I’m just going to be honest. My niece was not happy about this present.


Amazon Review:

This is a bearded doll with a machine gun. It is smaller than an adult human hand. It does not appear to actually fire bullets, so if you are looking for a doll that can defend itself, you are looking in the wrong place. The doll cannot speak. However, his beard is quite impressive and has been painted to appear full and thick. He has beady black eyes and arched eyebrows, as if he is angry. The doll looks quite aggressive, to be honest. As I mentioned earlier, my niece was not pleased to receive this as a present. However, I believe it would be very appropriate for someone who likes dolls with machine guns, or Team Fortress.
