Discover LG OLED TV – The Ultimate Display!. Great tv from Best Buy

What is OLED TV? The stunning design of LG OLED TV is only 0.21" thick at its thinnest point. Picture quality is spectacular, with Infinite Contrast that ranges from the most blazing whites to the deepest blacks. And, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology delivers bright, vibrant colors. Learn more here: Your first kiss. A baby's first steps. The majesty of a desert sunset. Some things in life defy all explanation and must be experienced to be believed. Such is the case with LG's latest display technology. With deeper and richer colors, stunning contrast and ingeniously curved screens, it is unlike any technology you've ever seen, and it delivers a picture that exceeds your wildest imagination. LG 55EC9300 SKU# 7846019 – OLED TV · Infinite contrast ratio and stunning color - delivers more natural, lifelike viewing. · 4 Color Pixel technology enhances color range and accuracy. · Super thin design (consider how to show visually) · Find content faster with webOS The Look The physical design of this set is a thing to behold. I’ve seen it at stores and at CES in NY but it was always displayed next to a wall or another TV. I put it on a table that (for the moment anyway) is in the middle of the room. Everyone who has visited is amazed at both the curved design and how very thin the screen is. I love the screen as it is such a space saver. The back is very clean and has the “classic” pattern to it. The very narrow bezel means that it takes only 4 inches more horizontal space than the 46” LCD it replaced. The set can’t be wall mounted and the clear “ribbon” stand can’t be removed. The Sound The sound is beautiful The Picture What can I say? This is the best picture of any TV I’ve ever owned. Black is the absence of light and that provides infinite contrast. The set is pre-calibrated at the factory. The THX mode is perfect in every respect – I would suggest though buying in store as bigger things are touchy in shipping. This would work great as a gaming or family movie night tv.

Matcha Tea

Matcha is a type of green tea that comes in powdered form. Matcha tea is prepared by whisking matcha powder with hot water, which forms a frothy liquid. Matcha powder is also sometimes used as an ingredient in foods and non-tea beverages (such as smoothies). Long used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, matcha has recently gained popularity among tea drinkers in Western countries. Matcha vs. Green Tea Unlike most green teas, matcha contains the entire leaf of the Camellia sinensis (the species of plant used to make green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and white tea). In cultivating matcha, the plant is shade-grown for several weeks prior to harvest. After harvesting the plants, processors grind the leaves into a fine powder. Uses for Matcha Some proponents claim that matcha contains more antioxidants than other forms of green tea. In addition, matcha is purported to promote weight loss, lower cholesterol levels and blood pressure, support detox efforts, enhance mood, reduce stress, increase energy, keep blood sugar in check, and stimulate the immune system. The Science Behind Matcha's Health Benefits Although there is a great deal of scientific evidence for the health benefits of green tea, very few studies have specifically focused on matcha. The available research on matcha includes a preliminary study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food in 2009. In tests on rats with type 2 diabetes, researchers found that treating the animals with matcha led to decreased levels of cholesterol, blood sugar, and harmful blood fats. What's more, matcha appeared to protect the rats from liver and kidney damage. According to the study's authors, matcha may contain higher amounts of epigallocatechin 3-O-gallate (a potent antioxidant) than other forms of green tea. While research on the specific health benefits of matcha is currently lacking, some studies suggest that regular consumption of green tea may offer a wide range of health benefits. For instance, green tea appears to prevent age-related cognitive impairment, reduce risk of stroke and diabetes, keep blood pressure in check, and strengthen bones. Additionally, there's some evidence that green tea may help prevent several forms of cancer, including prostate cancer, lung cancer, pancreatic cancer, and colorectal cancer.I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

AMINOHD 1000 Branch Chain Amino Acids

What is it exactly? From the website . . . "Use BCAAs to help build muscle mass. BCAAs are best taken any time the body has high protein requirements and low whole food intake. Ideal intake times are: PreWorkout, IntraWorkout, Post-Workout, Between Meals, During Intermittent Fasting, and Before Bed. You won't wake up after 1-day looking like a juiced up NFL linebacker. But it just might give you the extra edge to keep and create that lean muscle tissue we're all after." . One bottle of this size is priced at $29.95 per bottle. As per the suggested use, adults should take two (2) AminoHD 1000 capsules between meals, 45 minutes before a workout, and immediately after a workout. It is also recommended to take some before bed. Diet Standards AminoHD 1000 BCAA's Packaging & Presentation When the box arrived from Diet Standards, I wasn't sure what to expect upon opening. I got this from Amazon and got very fast shipping. Fortunately, the side label included some information that is imperative for use, and why one should take them. Instead of taking the competitor's product which can contain the following: Gelatin Microcrystalline Cellulose Magnesium Stearate Soybean Oil Glycerin Silica (Sand!) Soy Lecithin Brown Rice Powder Titanium Dioxide Color Stearic Acid Maltodextrin Silicon Dioxide Talc Copovidone Sucralose Citric Acid Polydextrose Pyridoxine HCL Croscarmellose Sodium Hydroxypropyle Methylcellulose Dicalcium Phosphate Pharmaceutical Glaze (Look this one up if you are brave!) Diet Standards ONLY formulates its product with 2 things: Branch Chain Amino Acids and Vegetable Capsules. That's it. No need for all that other garbage! The pills are not bad sized compared to other products so easy to take if you have issues swallowing. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.

Coffee Dates From Hell Review

Coffee Dates From Hell is another hilarious book I got to read in paperback so I could share it.His same sense of humor is shown in this book plus it also comes in ebook format if that is what you are looking for. Tilberry does explain in the beginning that there are good relationships that have been formed by meeting a person for the first time at a coffee shop. He continues on that this book is about those dates that are all wrong and turn out to be dates from hell.

We start out with people of past history, which I am pretty sure that there were no coffee shops back in some of those eras as there is today. Here is an example: Abraham Lincoln meeting Mary Todd for the first time back in 1839 for coffee, sitting there awkward and nearly messing up the date with a bad first impression to where it could very well have been their last meeting.

Couple other strange connections that are a mixture of people from the past and modern day coffee dates are: Krystal Martin meets King Henry VIII Jimmy Durante meets Frida Kahlo

Then there is the date from hell with Harold Thompsom meets Susie Logan. Harold finds Susie interesting. He has a lot in common with her. Perhaps more then he realizes. After the date is over, Harold is debating on seeing Susie again. But there are some things that have disturb him about Susie. Like Susie's husky laugh and hairy knuckles.

When reading this book about bad dates, we cannot forget about bad coffee shops. Jim Tilberry describes some coffee shops that had closed down shortly after they had opened up and for some good reasons.

We can all use a good laugh. If you are single or no longer looking, this dating humor book will put you in a good mood. You will be glad that you have it to read. Even if you are part of a couple it is a funny book that you can not put down once you pick it up. He has other books out 10 Great Reasons to Become a Vegetarian. He is very reasonable priced at $4 each on Amazon. I plan on reading his other book ASAP and can not wait to see what he does in the future.

Vitamin C Serum 20% with Free Bonus Review

Sano Naturals Vitamin C Serum Review When it comes to skincare products, I am rather picky as I am allergic to many things .I wanted to give it a chance and Sano Naturals is skincare company that acknowledges that whatever you put on your skin inevitably gets absorbed into your body, which is why they use naturally derived, organic ingredients whenever possible. As for the Vitamin C Serum I tried, it’s one of their best sellers, and 96% naturally derived, and primarily organic. Sano Naturals’ products are produced in the USA in a GMP-certified, wind-energy powered facility, but best of all, with no animal testing, and 100% vegan formulas. The serum comes in a dark colored glass bottle, and has a little dropper attached so it is easily applied. Just squeeze the right amount into your palm, then apply it to your face, neck, and back of hands. It is odorless, colorless, and a bit watery, but that does not cause a problem with the application. Now this serum not only has anti-aging antioxidants, but it helps with hyperpigmentation, melasma, wrinkles, and collagen. I love the bottle because you can reuse it to put other oils in after its empty.The best place to get this is on Amazon as you can get the oil and the cream for under $20. I plan on buying more because for the price it makes perfect gifts for all your friends in a gift basket to pamper themselves with.
