StrollerQueen - A fun alternative to an umbrella stroller
Right off the bat, I want to say to make sure you get this new, redesigned version. The old one had a kind of "X" handlebar,( If you want to see what I mean, check out the pictures on StrollerQueen.com) and this version is much more comfortable to push. Also, a single bar handle is much easier to push than the two handles of an umbrella stroller. It seems like everyone's second hand is being used these days--either holding a phone, coffee, toddler's hand, dog leash, etc. If that's you, then make sure you get a stroller you can steer using your other hand--like this one. Another good thing about the Scooter handle is that it's height adjustable. This feature was important to me because I wanted to use it with the BumpRider (the riding board for another child, which is also by Joovy.) You can position the handle so that it's almost horizontal. That gives the child riding on the board the most room (again, you can see what I mean on StrollerQueen.com). The Scooter also has a large basket with a zipper, so you can get into it when the seat is reclined. There's a front bumper bar so your child can pull themselves forward and sit upright,and mesh pockets on the insides of the seats so they can stash their toys and snacks. The sun canopy is large, and on the back there is a zippered pocket, and built in cupholders for you! I really like these crazy features. So handy. There's even ANOTHER plastic, removable cup holder on the side. The seat pad is reversible, with a summer side and a winter (fleece) side. If it gets dirty, you can just throw it in the machine. The fold is easy, and it stands up after you fold it. If you're in the market for a lightweight stroller, check it out!
ronashkar - The Worst Yet
MS Word has gotten progressively worse over the years, and the 2007 and 2010 iterations are just abominable. Nothing is intuitive, and the infinite # of variations that ms has worked into every option makes this program absurdly complicated. Those variations have are also full of mistakes and dead ends. One example. Say you want to insert comments in a document. Okay, and say you want to print those comments as they appear on the page on the screen. Simple one would think. After all, you're in "print layout," which presumably means: what you see here is what you'll see when the document prints. Not quite. Comments don't appear, only the grey area where they would appear had they printed. You go back into the program and check everything. Still no dice. Then you type your problem into Google. Many, many people w/ the same problem. "Go into options," "make sure printer option includes "print markings," "Go into "Display" under "options," etc.... After two hours, I gave up. That's just one of four score problems I've found in the last two months of working with this program. I'm back to Word 2003.
