4.0 out of 5 stars portable urinal, 4 Jan. 2011
This is a handy device, but I would question whether it is absolutely leak proof - I experimented before using it and found that it was necessary to wrap some parcel tape around the thread to make it more secure.

4.0 out of 5 stars springyard ice grips review, 4 Jan. 2011
These ice grips are OK and do the job as advertised, however, you have to be careful to put them on correctly as they can easily come off and get lost in the snow. And even if they are fitted well, they can still come off, which means you have to keep an eye on them while you are walking. Really they ought to have a central grip to go around the instep or else some way of linking up the front and back parts so that they would be more secure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mr Midshipman Hornblower review, 18 Sept. 2010
Well written account of Hornblower's early days, although, maybe some of the incidents are a bit strong for younger readers - like Hornblower engaging in a duel. Also, the technical naval terms are a bit of mouthful at times, and the authore doesn't explain very much. But the stories do have a moral side, and apart from killing the enemy, which is a regrettable necessity in wartime, Hornblower does have good moral standards.

Chasing the Falconers (On the Run (Scholastic Paperback))
by Gordon Korman
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars chasing the falconers review, 18 Sept. 2010
well written and exciting - but by the look of it it is part of a series, so it does involve buying more books to get the whole story

Quite an inspiring look at how a bomber crew might have coped if forced to bail out over enemy territory during the war - shows how the Dutch people were facing up to hte Nazis and also the bravery required to be part of a bomber crew.

5.0 out of 5 stars review of Fatima, Russia and John Paul II, 22 April 2010
This is a very good overview of the collapse of Communism following the Collegial Consecration made by Pope John Paul II in 1984. The next year Gorbachev came to power and within only a few years communism had collapsed - after decades of brutality and oppression. The author gives a full account of all that happened and for anyone wanting an insight into these important events, this is required reading.

Dvd ~ James Caviezel|Maia Morgenstern|Monica Bellucci
Offered by A ENTERTAINMENT
Price: £3.03

5.0 out of 5 stars best film about the Passion of Christ so far, 20 April 2009
This is an excellent film, moving and very thought provoking. My only reservations would be that you don't get the context as to why Christ was hated so much by the Jewish leadership of the day - it could have been two and half hours to include that type of thing - plus something to show the resurrection in more detail.
