White is the Moon
White is the Moon
by Valerie Greeley
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 26 Mar 2011
This review is from: White is the Moon (Hardcover)
I bought this book 20 years ago for my one year old and it was his favourite book of all time. We read it nearly every day, usually at bedtime until he was about 5. He gave it to his neice, my granddaughter, when she was one. She is nearly three and loves it as much as he did. Its a poem, beautifully illustrated. 'White is the moon, shining bright, sees an owl in the night. Brown is the owl with steely stare, sees a fox standing there'.... Ganma, son, and granddaughter know it off by heart. Love it! Now out of print but if you can get it second hand I would highly recommend it.

Bought because my hubby wanted a feather duvet after years of a synthetic filled one. He loves it! Comfy, warm, cosy. Fab.

Ordered as a xmas gift for a work colleague based on the reviews here. Very disappointed. Looked cheap and flimsy. Would not recommend. Returned and Amazon issued a credit no problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, great service from ligo, 7 Sep 2009
Agree with other reviews given here. Easy to set up. Voice clarity very good. Looks stylish and easy, intuitive menu options. Ring tones strange but given the other good features of this phone then I can live with the ringtone. Service from Ligo was very good indeed - delivered in 2 days - no problems.

Osteoarthritis: Preventing and Healing Without Drugs

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit of a biology lesson, 11 Jan 2009
Lots of information in here on the biological and physiological background to arthritis. Fairly repetatitve in places and goes on a bit about connection with arthritis and obesity so i didn't need the 'healthy diet' section as think i am already eating fairly well. Good section on using vitamins and minerals to treat arthritis. Just started on the recommended programme so not yet got any results to report. More of a reference book but gives a good amount of detial for those who are looking to understand the disease more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy, 11 Jan 2009
As with other reviewers, easy to set up, picture and sound very high quality. Bought with the Levv stand for 32" TV's. TV and stand took 45 mins to set up in total and auto tune, with some fiddling to get the channels in the right order, took 5 mins. Paid £349 for the TV from Amazon. Great service - ordered Sunday, TV delivered Wednesday and stand on Thursday. Don't forget to sign up for the free 3 year guarantee with Sony TV's available from Amazon until end Jan 09 - you just need to download the form, get a copy of the receipt and send them off. First time i have ordered anything but books and DVD's from Amazon - impressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trip down memory lane, 1 Jan 2009
Got the book as a xmas pressie from my daughter. I lived in the same street as Michael Parkinson in Cudworth so much of the early part of the book was a definite trip down memory lane for me. Other reviewers have commented on the overload of cricket but as someone who knows nothing about the sport i didn't try to understand it from this book. What the cricket stories told me were more about his love for his father, his passions, his respect for sporting skill, his frustration with those that thrived on the adulation but resented the media interest and of how lifelong friendships are forged from a common love of a sport. Suppose its down to what you are looking for in an autobiog.

I found his writing style fantastic - easy, punchy and engaging. Loved all the snippets about the celebs. Had not realised he worked as a war correspondent and some of his stories are harrowing - but war is - and his attempts to make non-obvious political statements about the waste of war perhaps could have been more overt - having seen it first hand and now he is retired he should be entitled to voice his true feelings about it in a book like this.

His analysis of the BEEB was hard hitting and not something us viewers have much of an appreciation of.

Overall I found Parky quite self-deprecating in his book - something that is evident in reading other good autobiogs in my view.

Thoroughly enjoyed it!
