About this book
Monterey, California conjures images of a coastal city rimmed by crystal clear waters and bolstered by tourism; yet these edenic views belie the community's often turbulent history, originating with the Native Americans who lived here for a millennium and Hispanic exploration and colonization. At each stage in the growth of this city, residents have successfully overcome the division of multiple rule, diverse nationalities, and fledgling identities to fashion a homeland in the western landscape of America that is deservingly proud of its character and history.

    As effective as Malathion in controlling cabbage worms on cole crops and flea beetles on eggplant

    I purchased this product to continue my transition to a more nearly organic approach to pest control in my garden (I still resort to Malathion for certain pests). Now, after two thirds or so of the season is behind me, I want to put in my report.I used the Monterey Spinosad product on vegetables (squash, eggplant, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and okra), fruits (primocane raspberries before flowering, apples, plums--both Japanese and European Gage varieties, quince, peach, black currants, red currants, and gooseberries), and one ornamental--hollyhocks.I used a 2 gallon RoundUp pump sprayer set to deliver almost a mist and followed the directions carefully about making sure the product remained well mixed and never saw a single sign of burning on any of the plants, including those with new growth, which was effectively all of them, including the various fruits (I mention this here because it was a complaint of one user).When applying it to... 5/5 D.

    Over the moon about Monterey...

    The area around Monterey Bay is perpetually popular with tourists and native Californians. Too few get past Cannery Row, the Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey to see the many other fine sights in the area. This Moon Handbook to Monterey & Carmel takes in the entire Monterey Peninsula, along with Monterey Bay as far north as the beach town of Santa Cruz, and the central coast as far south as the spectacular scenery of Big Sur.This handbook works systematically through the possibilities for visitors, beginning with Monterey and Carmel, and proceeding to Salinas,Santa Cruz, Big Sur, and Morro Bay, identifying museums, art galleries, beaches, parks, golf courses, restaurants, and places to stay. The concluding chapters address the unique geography of the area, along with some practicalities. The clear and easy to read text is very nicely supplemented by maps, diagrams, and photographs, both color and black and white.This Moon Handbook is pretty close... 5/5 HMS Warspite (California) - See all my reviews, November 14, 2013

This review is from: Moon Monterey & Carmel: Including Santa Cruz & Big Sur (Moon Handbooks) (Paperback) Just returned from a 10 day trip to the Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur areas. Used this guide after also looking at similar offerings from Lonely Planet and Fodors. Thought that this was the best laid out and easiest to read. Overall I'd say it was pretty accurate. Obviously I can't expect a book to cover everything in the area, but it was reasonably thorough. Used Yelp, and Urban Spoon to fill in what it wasn't able to say about all the places to eat. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 25, 2013

    Essential but not complete. Where's Janis?

    I begrudgingly give this DVD boxed set five stars because this is a fantastic, albeit incomplete, document of the most important rock event in history. Everyone who considers themselves to be a rock fan should own this set. Having said that, the filmmaker's idea of "complete" is questionable in terms of the long-awaited outtakes disc, especially when you consider that he devoted five, count 'em five, outtake songs to Tiny Tim, and only one (??!!!) to Janis Joplin, who was considered "the star" of the festival as stated by Mama Cass in her commentary included in the package. (Not to mention Big Brother guitarist James Gurley, who received equal praise at Monterey as did Janis.)This sad state of affairs is beyond explanation. Why wasn't Big Brother and the Holding Company accorded their entire set instead of one token song, which is "Combination of the Two?" There is very little footage of the singer that exists at all, anywhere.

    Revelatory performances.

    The film restoration work looks and sounds magnificent. Eddie Kramer gets extra congratulations on the 5.1 audio mix. That said, the 3rd disc is mainly in stereo only.Karen's review below is a bit harsh. If you actually listen to the main film's commentary, you will understand why more footage isn't available: Not every second of 3 days of performances were captured. Concert films did not exist as a genre at this time (see the annoyingly choppy 'Festival!' documenting Newport), so this was new territory and the point of the film was to make a document that gave an overall feel for the event and time. Pennebaker and his crew had to decide which songs to film, which seems to have been predetermined by Dylan's buddy Bob Neuwirth who was more familiar with the scene than the filmmaker. They would turn on a red light on stage to signal to start filming the next song. At some times, they didn't have a plan and the camera men would shoot at their discretion, so some performances... 5/5 Eric S. Stroud - See all my reviews, January 7, 2007

    Criticisms about belt tangling DO NOT apply to current model

    I love this booster for several reasons: LATCH, the customizable width, the recline ability, its safety, its durablitiy, and [most importantly to the kid] its comfort. It's a very "carseat like" booster seat in function. I never have to worry about sleep slump with this seat because of its design. We also have a Britax Parkway SGL, and my child and I agree that the Diono Monterey is far superior for comfort and function.I have the old model which did have a poorly designed seat belt guide. It wasn't enough to make me dislike the seat, since I like to snap my almost-7 year old in myself and she is not allowed to bend forward in the carseat, so no risk of the belt coming out of its guide. All the benefits of this seat greatly outweighed this meh guide design. All the same, I contacted the company and they sent me the redesigned headrest with improved belt guide for free.

    First, let me say that I have 2 Sunshine Kids Monterey boosters - one from 2009 & one from 2010. Had no problems w/ either of these - they are awesome products! Unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the Dion 2012 model.I recently ordered the 2012 model and experienced nothing but problems w/ the quality.

    It's been about a week and I have to say we really love the Diono Monterey Booster!We couldn't try out these booster seats for our twin 5 year old boys in stores so we had to rely on reviews, which all seemed to be great.This was our criteria - safety, comfort, ease of use, longevity and price.The boys had spent the last few years in Britax Marathon, we loved these seats for the safety, comfort and easy instal. I imagined going Britax again but .....wasn't ready to move away from the latch system. We did try out the Graco Turbo Booster- my son found it to be uncomfortable. Then he sat in the Britax Frontier, he said it was comfortable, but the price threw me, I simply could not afford it.

    The Whole of Monterey Bay and Beyond

    One of the great blessings of living on the left coast is the fabulous year round hiking. Nowhere is such hiking more available than along the Monterey coast where temperatures are pleasant pretty much year round. But finding all the hiking opportunities in this region can take some work. Nearly all guidebooks take note of Point Lobos State Preserve, for example. It may not be the single best park in California's state park system, but it is certainly in the top five. The Elkhorn Slough Wildlife refuge is similarly well known. But many of the best trails in this region are found in hidden little preserves and regional parks. And the best way to find these hikes are in the pages of Robert Stone's revised and greatly expanded 'Day Hikes Around Monterey and Carmel.' This book contains 50 new hikes that are not found in the first edition which was itself a very nice volume.New hikes first. This book adds several hikes around Santa Cruz and south to the Monterey county... 5/5 Fritz R. Ward "dayhiker" (Crestline, CA United States) - See all my reviews, March 18, 2013
