5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely perfect!, 8 Jun. 2011
I got this machine because I have lost patience with "freeze the bowl" deals. I have a refrigerator which makes the ice age look like a minor snowball fight, and they still never worked.

The machine is quiet in operation, easy to use, easy to clean and fast.

Placing the paddle in the bowl can be a bit of a fiddle until you get used to it, but there's a really handy chute for adding fruit, nuts and so on just before setting finished, so you can make "bits in" ice cream just as easily as smooth styles.

It is solidly constructed, and altogether well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely beautiful tarot!, 18 Oct. 2008
This review is from: The Golden Tarot (Paperback)
I'm not a great fan of tarot, but this one that stands out from the rest, big time!

A simple, easy to follow explanation of the basics, but with some fantastic background material about the tarot, what the symbols mean, and how we arrived at today's tarot. There's something in this one for the beginner, and like me, the not so beginner.

The card illustations are fantastic, and nice large cards too. Easy to handle and easy to read. The imagery is a return to the Sforza-Visconti tarot, with some nice new twists.

Definitely one for your friends now to tarot, and a great one for those of us who want a new deck with an older, more comfortable feel.


Hearse Of A Different Colour
Hearse Of A Different Colour
by Tim Cockey
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkling, witty writing, 8 April 2002
In a genre populated by so many barely adequate writers, this is a really sound read! Sparkling wit, with just enough cynicism to be funny, rather than just cynical, this is really one worth reading.
The characters are well written and believable, the plot is well worked out, and the story actually holds your attention! With so many formulaic books in this genre, this is a pleasant break from the monotony, in favor of someone who can actually write, who has a darn good yarn to tell.


Free Love

Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Darn well written!, 7 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Free Love (Mass Market Paperback)
In a genre populated by many authors who think that a half baked plot and the odd historical reference is enough, this book stands out MILES from the competition.
Olivia (Oliver to her friends) is a well written, well rounded character, in a novel that covers much of the atmosphere of the period with notable accuracy. It is further heartening to read an author whose command of the English language is more than monosyllabic.
On top of all this, a plot that isn't obvious within the first twenty pages...
Finally, historic murder grows up and gets interesting! Do yourself a favor, sit down and lose yourself in the 1920's, prohibition and all

1.0 out of 5 stars Paying for free demos? Can I give this one 'minus' stars?, 5 Jan. 2002
This is essentially a CD full of free demos / limited funcionality versions of titles you could find for free using any decent browser.
Once you have selected a title for installation, you still have to pay for a license from the software vendor, which begs the question, why do you want to spend this money on something you could locate from the vendor's site for free anyway?
I bought the CD, and within 2 weeks, had binned it, put it down to experience, and found the three main programs I have now added to my Plam M505 based on recommendations from firends and collegues.
Save your money and get recommendations for from Palm's own website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light, witty, with a touch of black humour, 4 Feb. 2001
For anyone who hasn't met M. Pamplemouse, this is a banquet of slightly off beat, slightly silly, and enormously fun murder and mayhem.
Pamplemouse and his dog, pomme frittes, wander around the gastonomic countryside, answering life's most vital questions 'Is cassoulet really a regional dish?' - 'Who murdered all those old ladies?' That sort of thing. Mind stretching it is not. But it is a real feast of off color fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Whodunnit? Who cares?, 4 July 2000
I must start by saying that I had high expectations of this novel. I had heard great things about the series, and in fairness, it is well written. The plot is plausible, but that is the end of the good points so far as I was concerned.
The book is only about 150 pages too long. It could be worse. But I have to say that by the time you find out 'whodunnit', if you have any intelligence, you will have worked it out anyway, and in any case, you are so bored by the cardboard cut-out characters that you don't care anymore.
All of this would perhaps be bearable were it not that the main character's sidekick has the social skills of a flat groundhog, the emotional maturity of a five year old and is clearly written to irritate the reader - one thing achieved with consummate skill; but one has to wonders - WHY?
Not my favourite read of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kill for a copy if you must..... Just get one!, 25 Mar. 2000
One of my all time funniest movies! Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon are all fantastic. Worth it if only to find out why there are 'big mice' in Brooklyn.
