The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice
The Missionary Position: Mother Teresa in Theory and Practice
Price: 3.59

5.0 out of 5 stars nothing is sacred, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A brilliant exposure of a false idol. Mother Theresa is a by word for all that is selfless and good but the reality is very different. This book teaches us that received wisdom is not wisdom, in other words "take no ones word for it"

5.0 out of 5 stars Good size keeps food hot, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All in the title really. Received this yesterday and today tried it out for the first time. Followed the instruction and warmed the flask up for 10 mins with hot water, then filled with 400g of hot chunky soup at 8:30 this morning. Opened the flask at 1pm and the soup was just as hot as when I poured it into the flask 4.5 hours earlier. I ate the soup direct from the flask with the folding spoon supplied and had to blow on every spoonful. Because it has a good wide neck it was easy to rinse out afterwards. Tomorrow I will be having Macaroni Cheese, num num num.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful product, 14 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had my MOMO8 IPS since Christmas. I bought it from GTR so it arrived with no annoying Chinese Apps and I believe already rooted. I have had no problems with WIFI anywhere in my two up two down semi. This tablet is brilliant, fast, responsive and the display is superb. The Battery lasts about 4 hours between charges, but I have been using it while it's on charge and had no problems doing that.

My mother received an Android tablet for Christmas - A1CS X220 TABLET 10.2" ANDROID 2.2, WIFI, MIFI, HDMI, 1080P, GPS WITH CAM- and compared to the MOMO it is terrible so you need to be careful when buying these budget tablets. Anywho back to the MOMO, I heartily recommend this product and the seller GTR.


Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Frozen Hearts
Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Frozen Hearts
by Emma Kennedy
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy with a plate of corn crumbles, 23 Dec 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read this with my nine year old daughter, She did the voices of the characters I did the bits inbetween (her Barbu D'Anvers is excellent). I downloaded this onto my Kindle complete with illustrations as I want my daughter to try reading someone other that Jacqueline Wilson. The characters are wonderful and the narrative moves along briskly. What I particularly liked was that Emma didn't compromise with the use of vocabulary and although this meant defining some of the longer and less familiar words to my daughter this is how you build up your own vocabulary after all. I have now downloaded the 2nd book Wilma Tenderfoot and the Case of the Putrid Poisonand am looking forward to reading it with my determined little girl. I hope Barbu D'Anvers is in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost somewhere in the Cosmos, 15 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are 400 billion stars in our Galaxy and presumably at least one DVD copy of Cosmos. While these stars are light years away and for ever beyond our grasp at least I can see the ancient glow of these distant suns. I can be sure that when the light from those mighty stars started out on their seperate epic journeys to my eyeball that those stars did definately exist. I cannot say the same for my DVD whose journey from Milton Keynes to my front door left no trace. I must take it on faith that the DVD did in fact exist at some point for there has never been any physical evidence to prove it.

What I'm trying to say is I would love to review this product but I have never received it.

I give the DVD itself 5 stars as I have seen the programme when it was shown of TV and it was brilliant. Carl Sagan was an inspirational educator and promoter of science. I would love to watch this show again and maybe oneday when Amazon deign to deliver the DVD I ordered I will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, interesting and impressive, 20 Mar 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just finished reading this to my daughter and I'm not sure which of us enjoyed it most. It is great fun to read out loud as the voices come off the page very clearly as the characters are extremely well drawn.

I was especially impressed by the authors ability to get inside the head of a primary age child. Clarice Bean is a very real child who is doing her best to figure out the sometimes complicated world she lives in. There are none of the black and white moral certainties that so many children's books are filled with i.e "Lying is always wrong", "Parents are always right".

The book ends with Clarice making a brave decision to do what SHE thinks is the right thing to do even though her parents and teachers would probably have disagreed with her decision.

This book made my six year old ask lots of good questions and more importantly think hard about some rather important things.

The bottom line however is that Clarice Bean is a great read, funny and thought provoking buy it and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Made Up, 26 Jan 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my 5 year old daughter's birthday, that night I had to fight to get her to go to bed as she wanted to keep playing. The following morning the 1st thing she asked to do was go back on the computer to play more Barbie. This is an addictive and enthralling game for little girls. It has a nice intuitive interface and took her 5 minutes to work out how to play with it. I am a 40 year old man and I find it fun. The best childrens software I've ever bought.
