Light a candle - Christmas album
Light a candle - Christmas album

5.0 out of 5 stars A great Christmas album, 4 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite a surprise. I am a fan of Smokie, but like other groups who founded their success on the skills of the Chinn and Chapman writing duo they never attained the same status or success when they went their own way. However, they were talented and tight musically with a good sound, and this album shows it. The mix is also much better than the average bunch of classics covered with minimal effort or input. There are classics of course; Mary's Boychild, Have Yourself a merry Little Christmas, Silent Night etc, but also later compositions A Spaceman Came Travelling, A Winters Tale and self penned It Won't Be Christmas, Light a Candle, Christmas Isn't Just For Christmas, all of which have been arranged and are performed as if they really cared. A real find for my Christmas album collection, which be warned for comparison, includes works from Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Annie Lennox and Jethro Tull.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun festive garment worth the price paid, 25 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased as this years Christmas fun jumper. The quality of the wolf print is excellent and better than I expected. The size is also what I was hoping, being large enough and loose enough to go over a couple of layers if required. The use of "polar", "awesome" and "thermal" in the heading may be taken with a pinch of marketing rock salt, offering similar warmth to at least a thick cardigan, again reasonable and as I expected.

One error in the product listing description, which refers to a fur lined hood, when in fact there is no hood at all! I had not been looking for a hood but liked the pattern so ordered anyway, and in fact I would have purchased sooner if I knew it had a collar instead. So for me ideal, but if you had wanted a hoody style top you would have been disappointed. It appears to be well made and finished for the price, and fulfils my idea of a fun festive garment.

January Update
Large enough to fit over other bulky layers and with sleeves that still do not restrict movement, I have worn this pretty much every day since being purchased and it has worn exceptionally well, with no issues. It has been washed and has come up remarkably well. Still highly recommended and I would be happy to purchase a similar product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the images, not for those looking for intuitive meaning cards though, 22 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased these on the strength of the images, and as other reviews have said, these are from over function and not intuitive to help Tarot readings. As I purchased them with that in mind I am not disappointed. If you are looking for an easy to understand starter set, or a set where the images serve to enhance the meaning, then these are probably not recommended. In terms of quality the printing and card stock is reasonable for the price I paid. Those dismissive of the made in China label should keep in mind that Chinese manufacturers can make a product down to a price as dictated by the customer or, and as cost continue to rise more likely in future as they cease to be a low cost base, they can make to a higher standard. This is providing of course the end retail customer is prepared to pay. Most of us want the best quality but rarely prepared to pay to get it. All a case of diminishing returns of course. These cards - slightly larger size than some at 13 x 7cm - complete with 42 instruction booklet and 17 x 20 inch custom spread sheet are a good balance between cost and finish.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great gift for all 35mm film fans and arty to boot, 11 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well presented packaging and a great gift for any fan of 35mm film. The only thing worth bearing in mind is that it will almost certainly overlap frames, leak light and produce poor quality images, that being the selling point of the crazy world of Lomography! And ironically without them and their arty approach, 35mm film may have virtually disappeared altogether. Keep snapping.

Bob the Builder Manual (Haynes Workshop Manual) (Haynes Owners Workshop Manuals)
Bob the Builder Manual (Haynes Workshop Manual) (Haynes Owners Workshop Manuals)
by Derek Smith
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book with lots of details and information, 11 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great book for fans of Bob and his machine team. It covers all the main characters - Scoop, Roley, Lofty, Muck, Dizzy, Tumbler, Packer, Flex, Travis, scratch, Rubble, Gripper, Grabber, scrambler and Splasher. All in colour with lots of information on each, including cut away sections to the show engines etc. A pity it is getting much harder to buy models of the toys to play with, many such as Griper and Grabber now being listed as collectors items at high prices. I assume production has ground to a halt as a new round of license holders is sought.No doubt this book will go the same way, so grab a copy while you can!


Fournier I-Ching by Royo

5.0 out of 5 stars A great set of cards with superb iamges, 11 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Fournier I-Ching by Royo (Toy)
The imagery is outstanding on these cards. the quality of the card and the printing itself is excellent for the price paid. We can always wish for thicker card stock and richer inks, but it would come at a disproportionately higher price, so better to have such a product at an affordable price.


The Spirit Board: Volume 1 (Winter Woods)
The Spirit Board: Volume 1 (Winter Woods)
by Joni Mayhan
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.48

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, looking forward to volume 2, 11 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Joni Mayhan is a self published author, and this is the first work by her that I have read. It is a great read about Winter Woods and her twin sister Summer set in small town America and the results of their use of a spirit board (Ouija being the trademark given to a specific brand of talking boards). Sure there is nothing revolutionary in the plot so far, this being the first volume of a trilogy, but it is well written with the town of Harmony, Indiana and the characters well drawn and believable and left me wanting to purchase the second volume. I purchased an actual copy printed in the UK, rather than digital, and the quality of the printing, cover artwork and binding is excellent, so well done to Amazon for that. It really is a great example of what can be produced in the world of self publishing.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you want murder mystery involving trains then seek out Edward Marston and The Railway Detective, 10 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slow and with a plot that is complicated without adding anything to the story. In fact having solved the crime and the guilty party been exposed, the author apparently felt it necessary to add another few pages of dialogue with one policeman spelling out the story to another in case the readers had still been left in the dark. Also the use of the train which figures highly in the cover art and publishers description, is merely a device to get the passengers stranded in the middle of nowhere and is then pretty much forgotten.If you want a really well written murder mystery type novel involving trains then look no farther than those of Edward Marston which are superior in every respect.
