3.0 out of 5 stars Over a barrel, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Again the football clubs have logos tied up & therefore quality is always questionable. In this case the set is made from various materials & differing weights. I notice these things having made clothes for daughters & costumes for grandchildren for years. For the price it's OK but I wouldn't rush to purchase anymore, especially at 12 years old the grandson might go off Chelsea!

3.0 out of 5 stars A passing phase ?, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Somewhat disappointing - perhaps that's down to my expectations. It's quite thin & I had to make 2 repairs (approx 5" in total) where the edging trim was not attached to the throw itself before wrapping it up for the grandsons Christmas present. However, the grandson loves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gershwin is great, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rhapsody in Blue (Region 2) (DVD)
Although a rather romanticised story about George Gershwin & his brother Ira, the music is fabulous.
They wrote specifically for Fred Astaire's stage career & he in turn championed their talents through his films of their shows.
Gershwin remains a most popular composer - his works, classical & light, still feature at the Proms.The Gershwin brothers songs & shows still play in the west end, on radio, TV & everywhere & anywhere music & dance is found.
Robert Alda (father of Alan Alda of "M.A.S.H." fame) gives a believable portrayal of George Gershwin. Enjoy it for the music & the gist of the story, but don't take it as gospel, for that read his biography!

5.0 out of 5 stars never to be seen again......, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elephant Boy [DVD] (DVD)
Yes it's old & Sabu died many,many years ago but this film still has a charm which has gone forever. I first saw it when I was a child in the early 1950's.
A way of life in India, which has now virtually totally vanished, this makes for a good history lesson, albeit a story, of how the Brits used to behave in colonial days & gives the viewer an idea of how elephants were used for logging work in the Indian jungle.(We used to watch this same activity in jungle areas of Thailand in the 1960's)
Sabu was an "elephant boy" - when Alexander Korda found him. His good looks & cheeky charm won Sabu the role & changed his life forever.
Sadly for Korda & Hollywood - Sabu grew up & the film world could not accommodate an adult Sabu, but he continued to live in the USA with his wife & family.
Thanks to his few films, cheeky, charming Sabu will outlive us all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Chatteris 1905 map, 28 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having wanted detailed mapping of old Chatteris, this map is totally inadequate. Chatteris is off to one side with minimal detail identifiable.

Grandchildren, chilly day, hot chocolate, loads of cushions, Christmas lights, sweets, iced cakes & an old fashioned tale - with none of the 21st century film violence & bad language! A wonderful adventurous story that everyone can enjoy.

The grandson, aged 9, is having a fantastic time using this model. Easy use, nothing tricky about it, just right.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tai Chi at home?, 3 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you really want to learn Tai Chi you should go to classes & be taught. Having done Tai Chi previously & feeling the need for a top up at home, to fit in with grandchildren care, this DVD is not that good. Movement of the feet from one turn to another cannot be seen or worked out from the DVD. We would not encourage anyone wanting to learn properly to begin using this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great story, 3 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For anyone who has enjoyed a good crime or historical novel (faction), S J Parris has worked magic again. The historical setting puts you into the Elizabethan age so much so that you can taste & smell it! Because the reader is aware of the factual side of the main historical characters, Giordano brings out all sorts of emmotions in the reader, thanking the author for his survival once again. The next book is eagerly anticipated (but as the reader knows what happened to the real Giordano Bruno) is there scope enough for book 5? I hope so............
