**** Good
*** Okay
** Bad
* Awful

Bernstein's Bagels - Sesame - *****
This is the best, and really maybe the only good, bagel in Portland. I have eaten a lot of bagels here and most of them are boring. Bernstein's reminds me of Tal on the Upper East Side, and I truly couldn't say anything more positive than that.

Spalding TF-250 All Surface Composite (Size 7/29.5") - *****
This is the basketball I own and I think it's great. It bounces well and doesn't get flat ever. I love to play with this ball.
