5.0 out of 5 stars The miracle tea: I have been using it for ..., 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The miracle tea: I have been using it for 4 years and it lowers BP;aids sleep;acts as a mild diuretic and a mild sedative.

It contains vitamin C and is reputed to lower cholesterol,although this is still to be confirmed.

There are no side effects.

Try it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mompou by a master, 21 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Volodos Plays Mompou (Audio CD)
Wonderful recording,which I heard reviewed on Radio 3.
Volodos is one of the greatest of today's pianists ,in my opinion,and this disc does not disappoint.
Mompou is a favourite composer-I already have Stephen Hough's Hyperion recording-and this makes for the perfect addition to my collection.
Volodos plays with commendable subtlety and restraint and the haunting,evanescent quality of Mompou's music is given its just deserts.
Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars a remarkably convincing political thriller, 31 Mar 2013
This review is from: The Horse at the Gates (Paperback)
'The Horse at the Gates' is one of the best of its kind ,in my opinion: well written,realistic and possibly prescient in its convincingly plotted account of UK plc in the mid 21st century.
The author displays a thorough understanding of constitutional processes and political machinations and in -fighting. The successful manipulation of public opinion,various government appointees and MPs by a dedicated,determined and powerful group makes for an enthralling story.
Recommended for all who are worried about the future of the UK and who enjoy intelligent political novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars solid oak bookcase, 27 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had searched for several days for an affordable storage unit in genuine wood and eventually found this piece;
a compact bookcase notable for its design and construction:solid oak with a satiny finish and 2 moveable shelves.

Ideal for halls or smaller living rooms or bedrooms.
Excellent value for money and highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars a tempest to remember, 15 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "The Tempest" (Audio CD)
Having long been fascinated by the themes of this play,but no fan of Shakespeare-I decided to buy this CD after studying the cast list and reviews.
It is a splendid production,enhanced by the judicious use of music: lute,songs and brass ensemble;and by the sounds of the sea in the background of many scenes.
Some famous phrases-some still in common usage-have their origins here :'O brave new world',to name but one.
The acting is superb,particularly Sir Ian Mckellen's Prospero and Scott Handy's Ariel.
I would recommend to all who,like me,have hitherto given Shakespeare's works a wide berth.

5.0 out of 5 stars every home should have one, 30 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A style icon bar none;this telephone is solidly made,easy to use,and looks fantastic : well designed,matching the famous 50s bakelite model and with good touch tone keys.
A lengthy search led me to this model and I would recommend it to all who love the retro look.

5.0 out of 5 stars memorable recording, 30 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is superb : the blend of voices and instruments is perfectly balanced,under the masterful guidance of the great Rene Jacobs.
These Lutheran cantatas have an austere style,yet are joyous and uplifting:a real pleasure to listen to-especially through headphones!
Wonderful soloists: Maria-Cristina Kiehr;Andreas Scholl;Martina Bovet;Gerd Turk;Ulrich Messthaler .
This disc is available at just £4.99 and is now one of my most treasured recordings.
Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars the splendid spoiler, 17 Nov 2011
This review is from: The Spoiler (Hardcover)
I love this book ;it is very funny and has a wonderfully challenging vocabulary.

The author's description of an excruciatingly right-on meeting on a dreary London evening,attended by the two protagonists-Tamara and Honor,had me in stitches.

Her observations on contemporary culture are acute and witty.

A recommended read.
