5.0 out of 5 stars Scrummy dum dum......., 27 Mar. 2015
I was so fortunate to have bought this book. It led to me buying my first slow cooker and I now consider myself a top chef - the combination of Catherine Atkinson's book and a slow cooker would transform even the least confident host of a dinner party into a success. I should say that even those recipes which don't require a slow cooker are equally fool-proof. This is one recipe book you won't regret having bought. Perhaps the very best of the entire '500 Recipes' series.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent collection of contemporary Brazilian music., 22 July 2014
I agree with the previous reviewer. This is an excellent collection and one I play over and over again. It's not the stereotypical stuff - 'Mais que nada', etc, but rather, the kind of quality music you're unlikely to have heard before. I particularly like the track by Sylvia Patricia. Give it a try - you'll love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tear your hair out and have a brandy on completion, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The one-page instructions are laughably useless, but having shelled out the cash, what can you do but press ahead? Despite there being times when I felt it might have been easier to build a jumbo jet sans instructions, I persevered and many hours later had built what resembled the above photo on the amazon site. Although the instructions advised the unfortunate constructor to build the cat tree from the top down, this didn't work for me, so I went from the bottom upwards, which for some reason made more sense.

The downside is I've just adopted a terrified rescue cat, and as things currently stand, it'll take him about six months to lay a paw on my cat tree - not far short of the time it took me to build it.

It does look nice, though, and at this price you can hardly complain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this: it's only logical., 28 Jan. 2014
I've always loved the original Star Trek. Takes me back to the saner times of my youth. I'm not sure why, but this series helps me to relax, and the familiarity of the main characters, Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scottie etc leaves me feeling more at one with the world, or should I say, worlds! The special effects might not have aged too well, but the scripts are as sharp as ever, and still have the power to make you think. It's true that the order of the episodes here appears to have no logic at all - sorry, Spock - but this doesn't overly bother me. Despite the protests of some about the cardboard housing of the individual DVDs, they all reached me in perfect condition. This is one of those purchases which you won't regret.

5.0 out of 5 stars I am convinced human beings and fish can coexist in peace, 18 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whatever you think about Dubya, you have to admit he's got a way with the language. This talking doll dressed in snazzy leisure wear is about a foot high and he moves his head and mouth while spouting his characteristic nonsense. Obama might have the brain, but Dubya's the one with the funniest quotes. Get this, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good selection of key works for a ridiculously low price., 11 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If this package of works just included Trotsky's autobiography, 'My Life', it would be worth the money. However, in addition to this, it also includes several other key works. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars What will I do now I've seen the entire set?, 17 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loved watching this dvd set. Leo McKern is wonderful as Rumpole and the fidelity to John Mortimer's stories is excellent. A great way to spend some cold, dark, winter nights. Now I'm happily reading the related Rumpole books. You won't regret buying this set at such a modest price.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sympathetic Witness Account of the Russian Revolution, 13 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting take on events. Philips-Price was notable for his in-depth knowledge of Russia and he witnessed events without the prejudices of many other foreign observers. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Harvey will get you off yo' ass and fit., 12 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps a little cheesier than his excellent DVD, 'Fighting Fit, Fighting Fat', which I can't recommend enough, this is still worth having for a bit of variety. A great motivator.


NORTH FACE OF SOHO. Unreliable Memoirs Volume IV.
NORTH FACE OF SOHO. Unreliable Memoirs Volume IV.
by Clive James
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe the best of Clive's autobiographical books, 12 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clive hits the heights in this one - he plays it a little less for laughs, and the book, overall, is better for it. Honest and frank, I was impressed by the number of James-coined aphorisms, which indicate the wisdom of the man. Recommended.
