4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected, 4 Jan 2012
These leggings looked a bit cheap on first looks, but they are comfortable and look deceptively good. The material is the same as the previous patterns, and does stretch very well. Overall, not the best on the market, but very good value at under 10. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spanish aficiendos - Hola!, 4 Dec 2011
This fairly weighty tome of 300 pages contains many large, colourful photos to depict aspects of Spanish cuisine & country up close. The text is relatively short in comparison, but for those of us who love the "real" Spain, 25 is probably a worthwhile buy. Sourcing some ingredients in northern Europe might be taxing, but your resultant dishes will have flair. Once picked up, the interesting forwards on each page make it good for browsing and planning for that special occasion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful cookbook, 4 Dec 2011
This review is from: Home Cooking Made Easy (Hardcover)
This much distributed book is easy on the eye and well presented. A useful addition to your kitchen or a worthwhile 'stocking filler' for Xmas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Baggy not skinny, 21 Oct 2011
These 'skinny' leggings turned out to be over floppy, quite unlike the illustration. Size as indicated was OK, but product would have covered the Graf Zeppelin airship! So item was returned and a refund made. A rare disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before 'Equal Rights', 21 Oct 2011
This old film is a must for the portrayal of southern United States attitudes before the era of equal rights for black Americans. The power play between the races, the classes and the gradual awaking and acceptance is a masterpiece - indeed, the ending clip shows it all. Steiger and Poitier are simply brilliant. The 'trash whites' are also well depicted. If you haven't seen it, you must. If you have, as I have, it is worth watching again and again, each time picking up nuances. I bought this for one of my daughters whose strength is human relations. Don't miss it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mafia - second edition., 11 Oct 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Mafia II (Video Game)
This adult game is a fascinating 1940's re-run of the first iteration. It is so like it's predecessor, yet so different. The vehicles, music and settings are perfect. The story line is similar and fun to play. The ending is another bitter-sweet one, reprising the earlier version in several aspects. I liked the test screen for checking your PC graphics frame rate. I started with a pair of SLI linked nVidia 9500GT cards which only managed 25-30 fps; then upgraded to an nVidia GTS 450 graphics card which doubled the frame rate on my fairly punchy PC. Seems to sit midway between GTA & LA Noire. Nice Xmas present if you haven't played it yet......

4.0 out of 5 stars Blue suede shoes - smart, 11 Oct 2011
Very smart looking shoes. Laces very thin. Sole and heel composite material- just to ensure longer life, have fitted stick-a-soles. Hopeful of attracting admiring glances!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two for the price one, 6 Sep 2011
Not wanting, nor able to afford another screen, this was recommended as a means of feeding a single screen either from a PC or an Xbox360 as required. It may be chunky, but it certainly does what it says on the box! Highly recommended. Do note which feed cables you require when ordering.

5.0 out of 5 stars All time great?, 6 Sep 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This game must be one of the all time greats. From a seemingly confusing and humble start, the game just grows and grows as Carl Johnson gets involved acros a huge landscape of amazing locales and imaginative situations. An excellent teaching experience in ghetto culture while, at the end, all the story comes together in the final showdown. A game to play and play again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aleluia! it fits, it fits., 16 July 2011
The answer to my prayer. X box and PC are enabled to share single screen, by switching to setting A or B, via a two way switch box and this double ended male 15 pin cable.
