A Man apart

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius fiddle player, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Man apart (Audio CD)
Although Sean Maguire's playing is not in the currently fashionable style (being very influenced by the swing of 50s ceilidh music) his incredible ability and enjoyment of his virtuosity shines through. This collection showcases all his talents with jigs, reels, hornpipes and other dance tunes.

Bought this for my 29 year old son who is mad on snooker. He read the whole thing on Christmas Day which indicates to me how much he enjoyed it. He said it was well worth reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars My rats seem immune to this, 20 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was pleased at first with the speed that the bait was disappearing but started to get suspicious when near the bottom of the tub as rats seemed to be thriving. Eventually they ate the whole tub and seem to have suffered no ill effects. Am now trying bait containing a different chemical.

My wife has used this perfume for many years and it is still a firm winter favourite fragrance. It has an exotic and heady aroma which is very alluring.

This is the perfect accompaniment to the Casmir perfume and makes the scent linger longer. My wife adores this strange substance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great flute and whistle playing with a cheerful bounce., 11 Dec 2013

This review is from: Carrying The Tune (Audio CD)
Kevin Crawford is the flute and tin whistle player in the traditional music band, Lunasa. His playing is wonderful and this album contains great arrangements of traditional jigs and reels as well as some original compositions that sit well with the old tunes. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys Irish music, played with a measured swing and due respect to the off-beat. Kevin is sympathetically accompanied by bouzouki, guitar and bodhran.


Bandstands (Shire Library)
Bandstands (Shire Library)
by Paul A. Rabbitts
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten heritage gets the treatment it deserves, 8 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bandstands have been a feature of the British way of life for well over a century but after the Second World War an increasing number fell into disuse or were neglected. Sadly a large number were demolished as public parks went into a spiral of decline in the 1980s and 1990s. Fortunately in 1997 the Heritage Lottery Fund started pumping millions into the restoration of parks and this has seen the rediscovery of bandstands and an impetus to see them made anew. This book expertly chronicles the origins of bandstands in terms of design influences and manufacture and charts their gradual renaissance and the activities that are putting them back into the heart of community life and events. They are wonderfully exotic structures that are at once very familiar and also alien in their strange designs - looking like UFOs, Moorish temples, rustic cottages or Chinese pavilions. This is a great little book for anyone interested in our social and architectural history. Highly recommended.

Easy to fit and certainly softens the impact on the bum bones. Chafed a bit on the inside of thighs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating for new and old gardeners, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dear Lawrence Hills was the man who started the Henry Doubleday Research Association which morphed into Garden Organic at Ryton. This was the book that turned me onto gardening in 1976 and I am now buying a second copy as mine was used and lent out so much it has fallen to bits. LH has a truly unique style with which he manages to interweave practical advice, useful tips, nutritional information and organic philosophy which is really inspiring as well as useful. He was a great man, a pioneer who devoted his life to good sense and gardening cheer. I could not recommend this book enough to anyone who is new to growing your own and anyone who still gets a thrill from it after many years.
