Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book contains none of the illustrations or photos that the original had. A complete waste, why did they bother to publish it?

5.0 out of 5 stars STOOL THAT SAVED MY BACK AND NECK, 16 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great stool. My chiropractor advised this type of stool. For a long time I coud not find one tall enough. This one is perfect as I virtually stand all day, this allows me to sit while I stand. It was odd to sit on a first and my hips had to get used to the shape they were in for some hours. You have to mount the stool like a horse which can sometimes prove problematic and amusing.

All together this was a great buy and I can sit on it for much longer than a traditional seat, without feeling stiff for doing so.

If you have an iPhone 4 this does nor work at all effectively. Also the long arm is very wobbly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Longtime Companion, 29 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Longtime Companion [DVD] (DVD)
I saw the film many years ago and was glad to find it on DVD. It's a love story mixed up with an early attempt to show how AIDS affected the gay community.

A well put together film that is not exactly hard hitting, but had a sense of melancholy throughout as things go wrong for some many men and their friends. The cast is believable (even if they are all very cute - if you like 'bears' you'll love Fuzzy) and the direction tight.

It's a good introduction for those who need a gentle reminder of what happened back in the early 1980s.

I bought this book as a gift for a friend who is an avid reader of just about anything; and has a good sense of irony.

He loved it and thoroughly enjoyed dipping into it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cook yourself thin, 29 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an extremely well put together book and contains all the types of recipes I like to cook and food I like to eat with numerous additional ones.

Quite how I've lost weight and eaten these dishes I'm not sure, but I have and I've enjoyed the eating and the cooking. I thoroughly recommend it for anyone who finds it hard not to cook and hard not to eat the wrong foods.

5.0 out of 5 stars A British Musical to Boast about - YES BRITISH, 25 Dec 2006
Although the score is written by the American brothers Sherman and Sherman, here is a musical we Brits can be proud of. It was the Queen's Silver Jubilee film in 1977 and was sadly pitted against such giants of cinematic greats as Star Wars in that same year.

So, take a slushy sentimental fairytale, give it a polished twist acted mostly by British character actors and you have the Slipper and The Rose. The Austrian settings are perfect. The lush and witty score is helped along (though not often needed) by such British screen Gods and Goddesses as Michael Hordern, Dame Edith Evans and Margaret Lockwood (though she does not sing!).

The overture sets the pace well. Julian Orchard has two clever little pieces to sing and 'act'. There are two particularly good musical numbers, these are the Slipper and Rose Waltz which not only builds through into a full orchestral piece but gains in tempo as it progresses. This is only just topped by the Love song sung by Gemma Craven and Christopher Chamberlain, though the reprise is cheesy. See if you can spot Brian Forbes doing his 'Alfred Hitchcock' bit.

Try this fab film for a change if you are fans of Rogers and Hammerstein or Rogers and Hart or are just Sherman and Sherman devotees e.g. Mary Popppins.
