5.0 out of 5 stars Comfiest boots with heels to walk in, 8 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for a trip to Prague.
I wanted a pair of comfortable, warm walking boots with a bit of a heel
as I am short.
This is exactly what I got.
They make me feel great.
I walked about 6 miles a day and my feet didn't hurt at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love my kindle, 5 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant.
I bought one after suffering a new book falling
apart on me on holiday in Egypt as the glue
melted in the heat.
It is readable in bright sunlight and I've bought
a lovely purple case for it.

On holiday I can choose my books from my sun lounger.

The only drawback is that it could do with a built
in nightlight.
I purchased one to attach to it.


Straight Talk on Loneliness: Overcoming Emotional Battles with the Power of God's Word
Straight Talk on Loneliness: Overcoming Emotional Battles with the Power of God's Word
by Joyce Meyer
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars This book came from the Godverse and helped me, 5 Oct. 2011
How I came across this book is really strange.
I moved onto my house in 1999
and at the end of 2003 my dog died and it really affected me
and I became depressed.

I prayed to Angels and asked that he was okay
and I had a few experiences
after that made me know he was okay.

But I also found this book under a carpet in a spare room
when I noticed there was a buldge under it.
The cover was mouldy and Joyce looked like she was
wearing an 80's suit so I asssumed it was from that era.

There were passages underlined so I thought it was from
the previous owners of the house.
The words helped me through this time though.

Well yesterday I felt very depressed and asked the Angels
for help and I felt that they would give me the answer in words
but I didn't know how - so I stopped worrying and just
patiently awaited a response.

Today a book fell on me when I was cleaning - the one I found
those years ago - the underlined words were about depression
and were spot on. I feel this was the words from the Goverse.

But the strangest thing -
I started feeling the house may be possessed.
Each underlined passage related perfectly to my situation.
I wondered if I was becoming possessed by the old lady that
lived here before me.
So I looked at when the book was published in the cover and it
says Feb 2003.
Remember that I moved into my house in 1999.

My husband definately didn't buy this book as he isn't religious
and says he didn't. And no one that stayed is religious that way,
and my mum would give it to me if it was her - she says she didn't
and thinks it strange too that it was hidden under the carpet.

So who owned this book and how did the underlined words relate
so perfectly to my situations - it is very strange indeed.

I really don't know anyone that could have put it there.

So maybe this book came to me from the Godverse - anyway
it has helped me a lot.

I now know that the reason I feel like I want to stay in bed
all day is because I have depression and now I will make
an effort to get up.
I also have learned that although I cannot trust people
in my life - I can always trust God.

This has helped me so much - I hope it helps you too,
however you find the book or the book finds you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Soleplate that doesn't leave marks - great product., 8 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've got one of these, it was a gift from my mum as hers was so good,
now I'm buying another one to replace it as it was excellent.

All other irons seem to get marks on the soleplate after a few goes,
it is annoying as I have to rub hard on the plate to remove the marks otherwise when I iron
white shirts they leave the burnt marks on them, usually on the collars.

This iron I had for over a year, used it every day and it never once
had a mark on the soleplate.

I never cleaned it which is probably why the spray gave up.
I'm about to buy another one - this time I'll clean it occassionaly
as I know it will last.

Me and my mum actually had a 20 min phone converstation about how good this iron is.
If that isn't a good advert I don't know what is?...lol

1.0 out of 5 stars Unsuitable topic for a childs toy, 22 Jun. 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Ouija Board Glow-in-the-Dark (Toy)
How can contacting dead spirtits, dabbling in the occult be a kids game?

For Hasbro to sell it as a toy for kids is extremely worrying.
They even sell a pink version aimed at young girls in the USA.

Ouija boards are used to contact the dead. No matter what your personal religious beliefs it is disrespectful to create a game out of such a topic. It is not a subject matter for kids. Three teenagers were hospitalised after playing with an Ouija board - it matters not if they were truly possessed by evil spirits the outcome has always been a bad one for anyone that makes a mockery out of contacting the dead with an ouija board. There are some religions that are opposed to Ouija boards as they believe it opens a gateway fro evil spirits and children are easy targets. So it is also disrespectful of certain religions. You have a right to warn people about an unsuitable item for children - as a mother I am warning other parents that children I know have had very bad experiences.

That is why it is an unsuitable game for children and why it should be removed from Amazon.

1.0 out of 5 stars Missing pieces, 22 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Madeleine (Hardcover)
Sorry to say that I didn't understand why there was no warning to other parents
not to leave 3 toddlers unattended out of sight and earshot night
after night. There is no warning that this is wrong and it
certainly wasn't done as a one off as it happened on a previous
holiday too.
Just found that most irresponsible to leave that out.
Makes me think that this is more about collecting money
to pay lawyers to protect them from jail than about
helpingin tht search.
The search that they didn't go on physically.
I feel emotion for her situation but these missing elements
prevent me empathising.
Too little remorse or self blame and too much anti establishment,
attacking the police, the interpretor, the social services - all
who went out there are physically did their jobs in trying to
find and protect their daughter from harm.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 15 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
10 minutes a day and at least you feel you've done something.
But I didn't expect it to work quite so quick.
After 2 weeks I'd lost half an inch of my waist and after a month
I've lost 1 and a half inches of my belly and an inch off my waist.
Ok - it went up and down but that's only when I stopped and ate
lots of chocolate....;)
This was my favourite 10 minute video because it got to the areas
I needed to tone up.

Its great for shaping up with yoga,
but not for newbies, you may benefit an
introduction to a slower paced yoga
before this one.
