I used this to replace an old black seat cover and have been very pleased both with it since. Looks good with the xcellent protection. In fact, I intend to order another for my wife's car.

5.0 out of 5 stars much to the cost of two Jesuits who refused to stop siding with the poor. They were captured and tortured by the regime, 14 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Pope Francis (Paperback)
A fascinating and very readable account of how a person can learn and adapt from an iconoclast theoretical early formation to a practical application of those principles. Vallely has produced an outstanding work about a man much over promoted in his earlier days as a Jesuit leader in Argentina. He had to face the conflicting forces of harsh and cruel dictatorships from Peron to Galtieri, (which latterly included throwing living people out of aircraft) against the forces of Liberation Theology. Initially he followed the Vatican line of rigidly opposing anything which hints at 'Marxism', much to the cost of two Jesuits who refused to stop siding with the poor. They were captured and tortured by the regime. On his subsequent and eventual appointments to Bishop and Archbishop, changes happened and he lost the cloistered view of a purely Religious.
The interesting accounts of a failed and successful elections are given and his humble but strong approach on election, wherein
his thoughtful approach and steely determination, augers more for people than the vested interests and corruption within the vatican.
Perhaps this is as much a blueprint for leaders in secular society as much as for those in the Church.
A very big Well Done to Paul Vallely.

4.0 out of 5 stars Non expert view, 28 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Without claiming any expertise in wine tasting, my daughter prevailed on me to start decanting wine. Being neither sufficiently affluent or able to buy on public expense (see MPs) 'fine wines', I stick to 'run of the mill' reds. I am now a confirmed decanter and for me the taste is greatly improved by the use of this product.


Writings from the "Philokalia" on Prayer of the Heart
Writings from the "Philokalia" on Prayer of the Heart
by E. Kadloubovsky
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Seek and ye shall find., 28 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a follower of Meister Eckhart I have searched for some time to reconcile his writings with the Philokalia. Such a large and convoluted tome when searching for only certain aspects seemed futile. That is until being lent a hard-to-find copy of this book. The authors undertook a herculean task of extracting the contents from the whole works. Although hard to find I managed to obtain a second hand hard back copy. Strongly recommended for all seekers of deeper prayer. Now meditation is becoming mainstream albeit under the title of mindfulness, it is unlikely that this book would appeal to that market.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cool operator, 29 Oct. 2013
We needed to trim our Westies a little shorter and neater. This blade was brilliant being ceramic . Always buy this type of blade though more expensive but well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Value for money., 26 Aug. 2013

If you wish to look pretty and somebody else is paying, you can spend way over £100 on a fancy model. But if you want a serviceable model at good value the this is for you. Good leather seat and adjustable aluminium strut with more than adequate strength. Prompt delivery.

Bought to replace a 6 month old one from City Electrics which failed. The design was an improvement but the plastic body clips were too rigid and one snapped when fitting.

3.0 out of 5 stars A variation on Galbraith., 7 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a book mentioned in most economic courses on Utility, but one suspects rarely read. My purchase was motivated by curiosity, and the subtitle sums up the book succinctly. At first, the subject matter appears obvious for if all were perfectly honest, this would have the effect of throwing police, judges, court staff out of employment and destroying promising careers. However, should the same principle be applied to masochists and sadists. Also the principle seems to be thrown in doubt at the extremes, should we condone the most heinous crimes of murder because it provides employment for judges?

5.0 out of 5 stars Reconciliation of eastern & Western religions., 7 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The foremost of the medieval Christian mystics Meister Eckhart is very well researched and put into context with other mystics from Buddhist, Hindu (Vedantist) Sufi traditions. Will appeal to the thinker seeking to make out the depths of and different levels of religion. All that is required is an open mind.
