1.0 out of 5 stars Pass the sick bucket!, 6 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Chocolate Shop
I love both red wine and chocolate, but this "wine" unfortunately tastes of neither. It is simply one of the most disgusting liquids to have ever passed my lips! I can only imagine that the manufacturers have created this drink in order to make money selling the coarsest, most unpalatable wine by flavouring it with syrup ( it isn't even real chocolate) and marketing it as a novelty drink. It certainly is a novelty drink... but only in the sense that it wouldn't be out of place in a joke shop!

5.0 out of 5 stars A deeply compassionate reflection on depression, 10 Dec. 2010
As the other review of this book makes clear, "Seeing Through Depression" is not a standard self-help book, and is therefore not packed with practical suggestions and references to evidence-based research. Instead, this book offers a sensitive, caring reflection upon the emotional wounds that can cause depression and the suffering and despair of those afflicted with it. Without denying that professional help may sometimes be necessary, Jean Vanier draws upon spiritual metaphors to gently suggest that depression may be understood as representing a necessary season of one's life, during which one needs to receive much kindness and patience, and to help the reader begin to trust in the possibility of healing.

I have suffered from serious bouts of depression for many years and have found this book far more helpful and encouraging than the very many other books (clinical and popular) I have also read about it. Jean Vanier is, as in his other work, kindly, wise and deeply compassionate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hymns clearly sung under the banner of His love, 21 April 2010
This review is from: Still Is the Word (MP3 Download)
I downloaded Kathryn Crosweller's "Still is the Word" album after finding it during a search for one of my favourite hymns, "I Watch the Sunrise". I was captivated not only by this singer's achingly beautiful voice but also by the sincerity with which she sings - unlike many other hymn-singers, she sounds as if she is truly singing to God and therefore wholeheartedly means the lyrics she sings. Every single hymn on the album is beautifully sung and produced (the backing music is also perfect). Listening to this album has made me feel so much closer to God that it has brought me to tears.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Sleuth Junior Detectives, 12 Jan. 2010
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I purchased two packets of these pens as stocking fillers for my daughters, aged 9 and 10, and they were delighted with them. They are huge fans of Enid Blyton's mysteries and have long been badgering me to find them some invisible ink to enable them to write secret messages to each other. The trick I used as a child - orange juice which, when heated, becomes visible - didn't strike them as particularly exciting and, moreover, wasn't something I wished to encourage, given the likely spillages that would ensue! These pens are great for wannabe Sherlock Holmes's - simple, non-messy and very effective.
