Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Reading -, 10 Mar 2012
I started reading this book when I too was struggling with gale force winds and heavy seas in the Irish Sea in a boat a lot smaller than 'Moshulu', and found my nemesis in the form of The South Stack Lighthouse on Anglesey... A truly scary place when the wind is against tide!
This book can be enjoyed by both sailor and landlubber alike, as the tales told are delightfully varied and give a fascinating insight into the last days of commercial sailing vessels, the joys and hardships endured.

Well worthy of the 5 stars I give this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kodak Playsport.. Good to use!, 26 Oct 2010
I was torn between buying a Sony Bloggie or this camera at the outset, but I'm glad I opted for the playsport. It allows me to shoot videos in situations I would have never dreamed about with another un-waterproof camera.
The camera is well made and well thought out, feels very like a Flip camera to use, and handle. Low light shooting is a possibility but like all cameras of this ilk, noise can be an issue in very low light.
All said, I'm very glad I opted for the Kodak Playsport.

5.0 out of 5 stars *Do* Try This at Home!, 23 Nov 2007
This review is from: Don't Try This At Home (Audio CD)
Don't Try This at Home is a truly wonderful album.

Starting off with the superb Itsbynne Reel with mixtures of EWI and Tenor Sax winding their way through this very ethnic sounding track. Track 2- Chime This follows, with a very soulful theme continuing through - you feel as though the sax is talking to you! A melancholy Scriabin follows with a very emotional theme leaving one feeling somewhat sad, then Track 4 takes you from those deep lows, quite abruptly into a cheerful, driving number, Suspone.(Talk about emotional roller coaster!). The album title number is next with descending steps featuring prominently and taking the listener down, down, down......Track 7 Everything Happens When You're Gone starts off with a lonely sax solo and wends it's way thoughtfully upward like an antidote to Don't Try This' lows, toward the last 2 tracks, Talking to Myself and Gentleman and Hizcaine, which for me crown a delightful album.... Who was it that said Mike Brecker's music isn't memorable? Personally, I just can't stop humming those last two tracks!....
