FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Huggies Snug and Dry Diapers, Size 2, 104 Count

I am not a diaper expert, it depends on whether you consider a grandparent sufficiently experienced to rate a diaper.   My appropriately sized grandchild fit into the diaper in the manner expected.  The diapers fit well, were easy to put on and I appreciated the little Mickey Mouse faces. My wife pointed out that the gathered top provides a better fit and should prevent any over the top issues.  The baby could care less and is only concerned about how rapidly you can get the dirty diaper off and the new diaper on.   This diaper costs out at $0.18 each compared to the "step up" diaper from Huggies which is $0.26 each.   I am sure there must be some difference but it is indiscernible to me.  This diaper appears to function well and fit well.  I have no idea if it really offers 12 hours of leak protection as I can't imagine not changing a diaper considerably sooner than that.  (BTW my pun background is a result of a father with a slightly skewed sense of humor, if you don't get it, don't worry, it wasn't that funny.)  I can't bring myself to love a diaper.  If it works I like it, if it doesn't I would hate it, but love does not enter the picture.

Paylak Watch Case Opener Wrench Tool For Waterproof Watches Caseback

It may be my manual dexterity but I could not make this work.  I could not get the back off of the watch.   I took the watch to the jeweler and it took him 5 seconds, 10 tops to remove the back with a different tool.  The quality of the tool seemed fine, but I could not get it to work.  In fairness to the vendor, when I returned it, within 24 hours they notified Amazon and I got a credit from Amazon for the cost of $12.95.   I was out the $4.80 return postage but they took it back without a quibble.  Btw the jeweler charged $8.50 for changing the battery and that included the battery.  It is obvious you can save money replacing the battery yourself but this didn't work for me.

Black & Decker TR3500SD Rapid Toast 2-Slice Toaster

I really like this toaster.  The stainless look fits well in a modern kitchen.  The inside racks appear to adjust automatically to the size of the bread.  I tried two dramatically different sizes of bread and they both came out just right.   The slots are plenty wide for any but crazy big bagels.   The bottom hinges out so  you can hold the toaster over the sink and gently pat it to get out the ubiquitous crumbs.   The rack lifts the toast high enough that you don't accidentally touch the hot edge of the toaster.   The frozen button appears to elongate the time due to the bread or bagel being frozen.  Works well.  I can recommend the toaster.  $30.00 at Amazon.

Centon Electronics 32GB Memory Card (S1-MSDHU1-32G)

This is a micro SD card with a SD adapter included.   It was immediately recognized when I popped it into my desktop and laptop.  I copied and deleted files.   It seemed quick but I don't have a standardized test for these so it is just an impression.   Having been around when these were introduced, it is still amazing that you can get 32gb for $18.00.   Seems like a great bang for the buck.
