Sappho
Sappho
by Mary Barnard
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.50

5.0 out of 5 stars exquisite, 9 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sappho (Paperback)
Sappho's lyric poems as translated by Mary Barnard are among my favourite poetry.Ms Barnard is clearly a poet herself; other translations seem wooden and forced in comparison; the verses are natural, delicate and sensual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful anti-toxidant Tea, 9 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I drink three cups of this graviola (also known as sour sop leaf) tea a day. I was recommended it as a cancer remedy and feel that it must have contributed to my relative good health (no sign of tumour for eight months). Do NOT use it instead of Chemo and radiation but rather as a complement to them.

4.0 out of 5 stars but this is great fun and very watchable, 9 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fun/easy to watch modern version of Sherlock Holmes; which I imagine was produced in the wake of the BBC's successful series with Benedict Cumberbatch. I prefer the BBC version, but this is great fun and very watchable.Jonny Lee Miller plays the title role and Lucy Liu does an excellent job as Joan Watson.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you enjoy high camp and the sureal then this is for you. I personally don't, but I still love this exciting colourful series; it has some ethical/moral/philosophical depth too. Carnivale is a travelling fair/circus with secrets; there are no mutants or cruelty to animals. I became iendeared to several of the characters and totally gripped by the story line, with it's surprising twists.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These tablets were recommended to me when I had cancer by an allopathic (modern/western) and 'alternative/ natural' medical practitioner; so I regard her as highly qualified. of course vitamins are NOT a cure for cancer, but these certainly perked me up, and my tumour has now been absent for eight months.The tablets are suitable for vegetarians and are "gluten,wheat and dairy free".

5.0 out of 5 stars charming,funny, sad, British, gripping, unmissable romp., 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item arrived punctually and as described by seller. I have thoroughly enjoyed the show and have watched all the available seasons. The acting is superb: everyone is good, but the cast had a head start as it includes Jenny Aguter and Miranda Hart. Each character has it's day and you will fall in love with them all. The action is set in a convent where nuns, nurses and midwives support a community in the East end of London. It's based on the diary of a real midwife, who is touchingly played by Jessica Raine. Vanessa Redgrave narrates the memoires, lending the narrative depth and gravitas. Each episode contains at least one gripping story. It's supposed to be suitable for"twelve years and over" although I would say it's suitable for anyone who can endure graphic sights and sounds of childbirth, which arrise frequently and may be more difficult for men than children. A charming, funny and sometimes tragic romp.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amber liquour, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tea arrived punctually and as described by the seller. It is also known as Sour Sop Leaf Tea; I had been recommended it as a natural cancer remedy; It tastes OK and because I'm forced to be economical I use a tea bag twice. Generally having two cups a day. It's a beautiful golden amber colour.
