I had no idea Huell Howser was a real person until like six months ago. Bump for Burt Wolf, who is the best of these guys. Loved Bourdain until he got all pussified after his daughter was born. Lowell Thomas.
Bradley Cooper did some globetrekker episodes as well R I forgot Richard Bangs in my poll. But I'm sure he wouldn't have gotten any votes. Anthony Bourdain. How's about my fave young white female, Samantha Brown? Start a "Favorite young white female travel host" thread, r22! OP you forgot Michael Palin.
Geore Pierrot with his infamous cough. Marlon Perkins. Huell Howser would be my pick, or Rudy Maxa, since he's already on the list. Burt's the only one who doesn't seem gay. Oh, what is it about Rudy Maxa that makes him seem gay? You're a straight woman, right, R35? Another vote for Michael Palin! Is Rick Steves bisex? My other mattress was a spring with box frames.
It was over 15 years old and sagging. I think I used it for way too long beyond its usefulness. I should have replaced it years ago. I think the old mattress ruined my back as well. I could not sleep soundly for any longer than 4 hours before my back would start hurting. Then I would just shift and turn the rest of the night.
Needless to say I have not slept well in at least 6 months to a year, if not longer. My back only hurt when I would sleep so I could almost definitely attribute it to a deteriorating spring mattress. I decided to make the switch to a foam mattress to try something new. This mattress appears to be well constructed in the materials used and the mattress covering. It is a firm mattress for sure.
I have had it for about a week and am still getting used to it. My back still gives me trouble at night but it is markedly better and improving. I think my back is just now resetting itself from years of terrible posture during sleep.
The firmness was a concern because I am a side sleeper at times. I have found this mattress not to be an issue for me though. I went with this one because the reviews I saw said it was not as firm as the one with the gel-foam layer and the gel-foam layer one was not recommended by side-sleepers because it is firmer. This was a great purchase in my opinion. My wife likes it and I am getting used to it, and my sleep is improving. The other concern was the heat that some people had mentioned. I have found zero issues with heat transfer.
I don't even notice it. The mattress expanded almost immediately after removing it from the bag and was ready in just a few hours really. We slept on it that night. It did take me a long time to shop around to finally make the decision. I shopped for over a year for a new mattress and with my experience with my last mattress I needed to be sure before I spent so much money not to be satisfied.
I thought I was shopping smart and purchased a close out model. I figured since I was shopping at a reputable dealer and purchased a product with excellent reputation I would be happy. I was far from that 6 months later, the mattress did not show any signs of wear. Even though the product was within the manufactures limits the product did not provide much support, I am pounds at 5'9" and my wife is all of pounds at 5'6". My point is we are physically fit active people and the product had us waking up multiple times through out the nigh and when we had to wake up we were often feeling tired and sore from sleeping on this product.
We talked to the dealer to try to warranty the product, since the product was with in the specification and operating within the set of limitations set by the factory I was stuck with it. So with all that said I have had this new mattress for going on 3 weeks now and I must say it has alleviated all the complaints I have described about my previous mattress, I believe that it is too soon to effectively rate this product accurately with out seeing if I will have a problem because of having the previous product only 6 months and being so unhappy overall, having a mattress for 18 months and trying to get a replacement for a year I was happy to get a good night sleep.
I did read all of the manufactures guidelines on how to care for it properly and they all are clear and reasonable to get the most out of it. This product sleeps comfortably in relation to temperature, on my conventional innerspring mattress I was a hot sleeper and was constantly throwing the covers off in the middle of the night then waking up freezing cold. With this product I reach my rem sleep very quickly and sleep all the way through the night waking up crisp and refreshed ready to conquer the day!
This product supports me and I wake up with no pain or sore muscles. I have had friends that have purchased this same mattress and are still satisfied, I am truly hopping we have the same experience, a warranty doesn't mean a thing if the guidelines protect the manufacture. Not sure about this warranty by reading it I would have to say it may not be much of a warranty, In the event you want to make a claim you have to pay to ship and return ship to you so that they can inspect the product.
This leaves me to only guess that if I had to request a warranty replacement it will not be an easy transaction. I am in love. This is the best thing since sliced bread. My husband was not interested In buying a mattress on line. It came there was no smell like some viewers mentioned. It came early which was great. I am telling everyone what a great experience this was.
PS I have never written a review before. Very comfortable. Came vacuum sealed and expanded to full size very quickly.
Not too firm. Does seem to be a little warmer than other mattresses. Can't beat the price though. Make sure you buy extra deep fitted sheets to fit. We really love this bed despite what everyone is saying here.
Yes the bed is firm, but it's a cushiony firm. Let me describe: the bed has great support. Coming from a nice expensive pillowtop spring bed, this bed is firm. Something that we were looking for after 5 years on that pillowtop. This bed has healed my bad back too! Feels like sleeping on a Twinkie!! Great value It's amAzing that it was delivered in such a small box compared to the expanded size It's just bulky I weigh over lbs and over 6'0 ft Just to put things in perspective It's much easier to move around Just bulky My place is hot all year long The temperature of the bed is balanced Not hot , not cold Even when it over 90 deg in the house I don't know about durability , but time will tell I have been having soreness and stiffness for a while now from my former "innerspring" mattress..
So I thought i would give this mattress a try becasue there were so many good comments. I love it! Yes, the first night it was firm, kinda scary.. Its been a couple weeks now and I am going to put a 1 inch memory foam topper for a softer pillow top effect, but i do love the level of support and NO MOTION from your partner.. I will never go back to an innerspring mattress.. Very happy with purchase.
Bed is as described. I have slept well on this mattress from night 1. Sell on Amazon Start a Selling Account. AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go.

A public relations firm for the makers of Ambien bragged on the internet about their role in a NSF campaign "to raise insomnia to its deserved level of a national public health crisis.
Ambien attained 30 percent of the sales in the first year. Later, NSF campaigns about alleged dangers of insufficient sleep in children were followed by a huge increase in sleeping pill consumption by children.
In , the President of the AASM discussed marketing efforts of the organization, saying "an initial focus of the campaign will be insomnia and its consequences. In the next several years, we will witness the launches of several new hypnotic medications, and, with those launches, an unprecedented amount of direct-to-consumer advertising from the pharmaceutical industry. It is our belief that we can use this development to our advantage. We will partner with a consortium of industry, from which we anticipate and have already received considerable financial support.
What are the real risks of short sleep? Would you think that mortality risks versus survival might be good measures? An excellent new analysis of 25 selected studies from around the world showed that people reporting 7 hours sleep had the lowest mortality. No significant mortality elevation was found among those with short sleep in Asia, only in the U. Since the currently-reported average sleep duration in the U. Moreover, since there tend to be more people reporting sleep longer than 7 hours than shorter than 6 hours, and there is a higher mortality risk with long sleep, the long sleep problem is a much larger problem than the short sleep problem.
An independent analysis of 27 studies of people age 60 or over had similar findings, and also observed that cardiovascular mortality was significantly associated with long sleep but not with short sleep.The Wolf Conservation Center (WCC) is a smoke-free facility (this includes no juuls, e-cigarettes, vaping, drugs, or tobacco products of any kind).
