Martick Cubic Zirconia Letter A Charm
Martick Cubic Zirconia Letter A Charm

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit small, 13 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is 'what it says on the tin' and all that, but it is TINY (maybe 24pt, if that - the illustration in 'here' is bigger than life-size!).

I guess charms need to be small but the illustration makes it look like something you could actually 'make out'.

Incidentally, I notice my wife's wanted an, "L" for her; and an, "A" for the dog - and there's no sign of her wanting an, "N"..

3.0 out of 5 stars It Goes With A Swing, 4 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Jazz Age (Audio CD)
This CD's a little on the short-side at just over 37 minutes (especially when you consider how long the same tracks would last, in their original format!) but it sounds good.

I think - considering the amount of music Bryan Ferry's responsible, he could have had a few more but maybe he felt that the others wouldn't "work".

I like 'swing', 'trad jazz' and Roxy Music, so this fits perfectly into my eclectic mixture!

I first heard a track on Paul O'Grady's programme on Radio 2 (on a Sunday) and thought it was a recording from the 1930s: It was quite a refreshing-shock to hear that it was brand new! I went to Amazon and listened to the tracks and thought to myself, "Why not.."

Some of the tracks IMHO bear little resemblence to the rock/pop versions but they still sound good, 'stand alone'.

But give it a shot: I think you'll soon be in The Swing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, 18 Nov 2012
Mike Gayle's work is SO much like my own thoughts on friends and other people, it's uncanny!

I have bought every one of his books - it's obvious that he was an, "Agony Uncle" for FHM.

4.0 out of 5 stars CD V.LP, 16 Nov 2012
I have this on a five LP collection boxed set.

Some tracks are far-better 'un-live'. Others are just as good or better. Be good to 'see him live' even without Clarence.

It's a little roomier than I need for a Nikon S9100 but the camera fits fine and there's less likelihood of damaging the camera's delicate lens cover leaves with the Lowepro bag so it fits the bill.

Haven't discovered what the slots on the Velcro fastening are for yet.

Oh, if you have a compact camera that fits in such a case, always put the screen outermost as the closure's less-likely to damage the lens. And if your case shuts with a 'snap' clip, do it the other way around, as contstantly-pressing the screen might break it. "Google" my name if you question if I know anything about photography..

4.0 out of 5 stars Rear-View, 16 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this specifically to shoot the fantastic fireworks over 'my' Castle. And it was only when I pressed the button at the show in August that it dawned on me that the receptor for it is on the front of the camera..

On the plus side: There's two settings - one for 2 seconds and one for 10. Touchless-camera with (say) a macro lens, and the other to be in the shot yourself - but, as you don't need to press the button UNTIL you are already there..?

But enough of my wife.

She was given the Martick bracelet from a Brother for a recent 'special' birthday and so I wanted to get something to hang on it. The illustration's MILES' bigger than the actual item, to show the details but it was a bit of a shocker when the box arrived as I was expecting something far, far-bigger. It's nice enough though.

This review is from: Downtown Tonight (Audio CD)
I bought this album simply because I reheard, "They Shoot Horses Don't They" and thoroughly enjoyed each track - "Get Out And Get It" and "Ladee-Lo" are another two that are good.

I bought the album because I used to have the album on cassttee [you can maybe read about them in an encyclopedia, kids] but that's long-gone. I also bought it for TSHDT and discovered that's a track on a compilation already on my MP3 player..

IF your dog has a 'problem' then these might work for you - provided your dog's behaviour isn't like mine:

On applying the (hand-made) belt, with a 'panty liner' [which you can buy from Tesco or suchlike] around my 19yo dog he instantly couldn't manage on to the furniture.. (Reminded me of when I bought him a coat - and he '"got a limp": Which disappeared immediately I took it off!) Alfie with the belt lay in his basket and squrmed-around until he was free of the garment. Rather defeating the object which was a shame - as you could see he was embarrassed having an 'accident'.

Plan B: Wrap his privates in swimming trunks at night.
