Those Loved and Loving Faces
Those Loved and Loving Faces
by Marlena Frick
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.10

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally powerful, 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was seriously moved by this true life story of rare intimacy and honesty of love and grief experienced by a truly sincere and compassionate woman. Some of us consider ourselves lucky to find just one love in our lives although we may then have to go on to suffer the despair of their loss. Some would say that once was enough but M.Frick reveals with a tender sensitivity that her life was blessed in such a way three times! Keep the man-sized KLeenex handy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy the Morphy Richards 48321, 8 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Thinking of buying a bread-making machine? Well, for heaven's sake DON'T BUY a Morphy Richards 48321; it has a serious design fault which the company in it's arrogance appears to think is of no consequence, leaving all reports of the problem unheeded.

The fault? The company in its misguided wisdom has seen fit to make the paddle in this model a permanent fixture which means that during the cooking cycle the dough cooks around the paddle making the finished loaf nigh-on impossible to remove. In fact, the only way you can get the bread out once cooked is to remove the pan from the machine, wait 15 minutes or so for the ensemble to cool down and then squeeze your fingers between the pan and the loaf, wriggle them under the bread and then tug, pull, rive, twist, curse the idiot who came up with the idea, swear at your mother-in-law, or anyone else who dares enter the kitchen while you are performing this act, until finally, if luck is with you, out it plops, the resultant loaf looking as if it has been attacked by a pack of hungry wolves, and generally no use for much other than dipping into your soup or feeding to the birds! The fact that you have to wait for the pan and loaf to cool before attempting this manoeuvre means the thought of tucking into a slice or two of nice warm bread of a morning is a mere dream; and should you prefer your loaf to sport only the lightest of crusts then forget it! Only the crustiest of loaves will withstand any of the aforementioned manhandling. Take my advice DON'T BUY IT. Buy one with a removable paddle instead and preferably not a Morphy Richards'.

Wholeness and the Implicate Order (Ark Paperbacks)
Wholeness and the Implicate Order (Ark Paperbacks)
by David Bohm

4.0 out of 5 stars What a read!, 8 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a read! Both in terms of difficulty (even forgetting the maths!) and the concepts discussed.
Mr Bohm's name is deservedly uttered in the same breath as the likes of Newton, Einstein et al. and I'm not surprised that his ideas have brought about a paradigm shift in scientific thinking. The subject he tackles in this book is a big one: the universe and our place in it. This is not an easy read as he deals with abstract concepts like thought, knowledge, intelligence etc., and you may find yourself reading and re-reading chapter after chapter, but persevere....this book has answers to big questions!
