Now it is up to the dog to start listening!! He looks up, says, 'Ah there you are, but I'm busy!!'
Still a lot of training to do.

Well written as usual. This book reminds us that are lives are not preordained but the result of random events. If the lights hadn't failed I would have caught the train which ..............

5.0 out of 5 stars The fish loved this food, 11 Feb 2014

We love this food. We rush up to the surface and gobble it up before it sinks. It stays on the surface for some time and then sinks so that the shy ones get a feed too. Please buy more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Feels solid and closes well, 11 Feb 2014

A little more expensive than some, but you get real leather so it feels better. Very strong clip keeps this excellent product closed until you need it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Weak clip at the top, 11 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I carry my phone in my trouser pocket. The magnetic clip that keeps this phone closed and protects the screen is too weak. I think it is because it is just at the top (in order to keep it slim) and doesn't wrap round. This means that it is vulnerable to the sort of sideways forces you find in a pocket and it opens up. It would be probably OK in a tightly packed handbag. The colour in the picture is accurate - I wouldn't call it Navy Blue!

4.0 out of 5 stars Had gone off these stories but am back, 22 Jan 2014

The comfort of the series is that they are all similar. I read a lot too close together and got a little bored. But after a year or so I am back and love the book.

If you are watching a boring TV prog or on a journey this is a great game. This incarnation works well. I like being able to chose a game which will come out if you play it carefully and properly. The 4% win percentage on my computer is frustrating, but shows I like to travel hopefully!

5.0 out of 5 stars She can do no wrong, 24 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great plot with a wonderful sense of place. If you saw Robson Green's series on Northumberland you will know what I mean. My only worry is that if you love the area as I do, you don't want to many people coming to enjoy the wild beauty that she creates.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a disappointment, 24 Dec 2013

This game is OK, but the distribution of letters is not good. It feels as if there is an equal chance of getting ANY of the consonants. The result is that the letter choice can have a larger proportion of the more difficult letters than you get on the show. In consecutive goes I had XXMF, KHYW, HMQF. I know any combination is possible, but when the computer's best choice was only painfully obvious 4 letter words I felt this OK for a free app, but as I had to pay for it ......

5.0 out of 5 stars A philosophy of living, 21 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a book about ambition. But not the sort of ambition we usually hear or read about - the climb over everyone else ambition of politics and is found in many organisations or the 'I want it so much' ambition of X factor. It is about the 'I've got to work hard' ambition.
Chris Hadfield wanted to go into space. But he knew things might not work out and he was not going to define his success in life by whether he got there. As he said (not an exact quote) he wasn't going to define his life by something that may happen once in 10 years, but by doing 10 good things every day. He valued working with people and not over them. He was happy to do seemingly menial tasks if it helped the greater goal of the team. He would be pleased for other people's success. And all the time he would go the extra mile to achieve success for himself (that's hours of hard work) - to be the best at whatever he did. He would work hard. Very hard. And when he got there he would give back.
But if you think this may be an 'Aren't I wonderful?' type book you'd be wrong. Although the book is about him, it certainly isn't an ego trip.
