Sealey LP351 Space Warmer Propane Heater 34,000Btu/hr
Sealey LP351 Space Warmer Propane Heater 34,000Btu/hr

4.0 out of 5 stars Life saver, 29 Dec. 2010
Not cheap to run but when you are desperate to warm up a large stable workshop in winter, it's just the job. Pity you can't vary the output but that doesn't matter too much.......I just give the room a ten minute blast so I can work without my nose dripping. Well made and
easy to use.

Amadeus [DVD] [1984]
Dvd ~ F. Murray Abraham

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the version I ordered, 29 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Amadeus [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
I already had the Directors Cut version and wanted to send the same version to someone for Christmas after reading the reviews..but the one delivered was the original release version with no bonus discs. Amazon should be a bit more accurate when attaching reviews when there are different versions of movies.Having said that it's one of the all time great movies. Get the Directors cut though with bonus material.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pioneers of the genre, 17 May 2009
Predate Django and Grappelli by at least a decade and were among the creators of the genre . It's interesting to compare the two " duo's " .If you like Django/Grappelli , get this to add to your collection even if only for historical interest . These are really old recordings don't forget...Hot Club recordings are hi-fi in comparison !!

3.0 out of 5 stars Will never be a hit, 17 May 2009
This review is from: Music from the Ether (Audio CD)
Went through a phase in 2008 of collecting together Theremin DVD and cd stuff as have always been a fan .Clara Rockmore is THE Master ( Mistress )
of the Theremin .Ms. Kavina is very good ( this is a very difficult instrument to play ) ,but not as versatile as Clara .I found the content a bit shall we say ,uninteresting ,but there is no doubt about her playing ability .You need to be a fan anyway .

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Sergei's most popular work, 17 May 2009
Not a fan of mp3 ,especially for classical music ,but this sounds fine
( maybe my hearing is getting worse ! ) .Not one of Rachmaninov's most played or popular pieces ,but HEY ,how many symphonies have YOU written ? Still very good stuff though . Great conductor .
Probably best not to listen to this if you suffer from depression . .

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a big one, 17 May 2009
This review is from: Whistling Gas Kettle 3L
Twice the capacity of our plastic electric kettle and looks a lot better .No frills ,just plain simple technology !! Should've bought two as large kettles aren't easy to come buy .
Will get a lot of use next winter on the Esse solid fuel stove .
Arrived promptly.Good supplier .

Apart from the retracting mechanism which will only show up any problems in time , these little lifesavers work great .When I was kid ,I always had apen knife in my pocket...now it's a Sandisk Cruzer !

Sony DRU-190A 20x Internal DVD-RW Retail Kit

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful, 17 May 2009
Thought I'd get a couple of new burners from the co-inventors .Installed the first one and it didn't work properly .Downloaded a firmware update from Sony and that fixed the problem .Always makes me wonder who tests these products before they are released on the market.A bit flimsy ;there are much better burners out there but these were cheap enough ( although I found some even cheaper a few days later locally !! C'est la vie .
Can't vouch for the quality of the burn...haven't done that yet ..

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good book, 17 May 2009
If you aspire to gypsy jazz violin ,get this book along with the Tim Kliphuis book .Tim's book is obviously more Grappelli focussed ,but I don't think the two books overlap too much .We bought them both and don't feel we've duplicated material .
