Blood, Bones and Butter: The inadvertent education of a reluctant chef
Blood, Bones and Butter: The inadvertent education of a reluctant chef
Price: 4.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful. But odd, 14 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What an odd book. What a wonderfully written, elegantly prosed (if that's such a word) book.

It's about food, about cooking, about starting out in life in a family that has everything, then collapses, with repercussions that ring through the decades. But, then in the end (as one other reviewer has noted, somewhat negatively), it also becomes a platform for self-analysis around the author's own marriage, and how her life is secure professionally but fragile personally.

It's a bit scattered in places - a chapter devoted to a conference about women in restaurants is worthy, but out of place. What holds it all together, however, is the writing style, which has a wonderful cadence, and which reveals the passion of the author for her profession.

I really enjoyed it. I would be interested if she turned her hand to another book, one slightly more focused.

Her restaurant is great as well. Do go there if you get the chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good, simple, standard watch, 3 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Look, this is a cheap watch. It doesn't set the world on fire in terms of functionality. It claims to measure distance, but it is one of those stride length multiplying set ups, and I haven't even bothered to get it set up.

However, it has a really nice thing where if you lift the watch up the light comes up and you can see the screen for a few seconds. If you live in London like I do, and run during winter in the mornings, then this is a really handy feature, and I like it a lot for that reason alone.

So, for the price, you can't go wrong. If you need to drop 300 on a Garmon watch, to measure distance and do all that fancy stuff, then that's great. However, I can measure my distance on mapmyrundotcom after the event if I really need to. And right now, I just need to get out there, run as far as I am running, have a basic stopwatch and timer function, and I am good from there.

So it depends on your needs. But if your needs are simple, then this is a good buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars It depends what you are looking for., 7 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In terms of what it is, I'm happy with it. It needed an extra gig of RAM to make it a little zippier, but once that's in, and it is dead easy to do, then it is fine for 95% of the use I make of it, ie, working on Word Docs, a little bit of excel, a lot of surfing at home, and that sort of thing.

It's very small and light, and that's great.

The key thing here is that it depends what you are looking for. If you are a heavy laptop user for work, and will spend a lot of time in front of it processing documentation, then it will be a little frustrating because of the smaller screen size. You can manage, that's for sure, and if you were to combine it with a cord to a bigger external display screen, then even better. But it is just a little small for a full time unit if you are a heavy user.

But in those cases, 95 out of 100 times you may find that your employer is providing you with a more industrial laptop type thing anyway.

However, if you are looking for that extra laptop to take with you everywhere, that is super light, that can be used by other family members to look up things on line every now and then, then this can't be beat for value and performance. It's a corker for that purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Value and utter simplicity, 23 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I only bought this as a stopgap measure while my more expensive watch is being repaired. But I have quickly grown to love it. It is so cheap, so far has run well. It can be worn in the shower etc. But in its own way, it's a little design classic - total simplicity of purpose and looks equally at home with a suit or on the beach.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for the price, 3 Sep 2010

This does what is required. It's cheap too. One problem is that the elastic band swivels in the bracket that holds it. Not a massive issue, as it still works, but slightly annoying.

3.0 out of 5 stars Well written, but the subject matter is dry, 25 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Detailed and well researched. However, Ted Heath is just plain boring after a while. I gave up after a few hundred pages and started reading a book on cricket by Richie Benaud, which has proved far more entertaining.

It's a sander for agile sanding in small spaces. It does that well. A friend had good experiences with their customer support so that influenced my decision.

4.0 out of 5 stars Yeah, so far so good, 5 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sturdy, does what it is meant to. I mean, it's a floor pump for goodness sake. So long as it inflates tyres, how much can be wrong with it. Okay, it appears well made. Buy it. Buy two and be done with it.
