5.0 out of 5 stars Great album, 19 Jun 2013
This review is from: Zooropa (Audio CD)
I think this is U2's best album, and most certainly their most under rated.

Not a stand out single on it, and all the better for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very tasty, 19 Jun 2013
A good choice if you want a traditional barbecue sauce with a bit of jerk 'kick'.

Hot, sweet, tasty, and recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious, addictive, and HOT!, 5 Jun 2013
Search the interweb and you'll find a million and one recipes for Jerk Seasoning, and a million and one opinions as to which is the best pre-made, shop-bought version.

Different people have different tastes, and it's not for me to comment on individual preferences. However, for me and the missus, Dunn's River is the best tasting. The chilli heat and all spice zing are very well balanced, and the flavour holds up well alongside the various versions I've made at home after following genuine Jamaican recipes I've found on line, so it appears to be pretty authentic.

My advice would be to marinade your chicken pieces in a large bag overnight, using 1tsp per portion + 1 or 2 extra, sear for a minute or two each side over hot charcoal, then cook over indirect heat on a kettle (lidded) barbecue. We prefer bone-in chicken pieces like large thighs or legs, which take 45-60 minutes. A few wood chips on the charcoal to create smoke works well, but go for a milder wood like apple or cherry, rather than a strong one like hickory.

Importantly, a quick check of the ingredients shows this contains spring onions, scotch bonnet chillies, salt, thyme and all spice. No artificial preservatives, colouring, flavouring, e-numbers, or anything other than what you'd put in yourself.

Finally, a word of caution. If you haven't had jerk before you may find this very hot. I advise you proceed with caution, especially the first time you eat it. If you find it too hot, scrape the seasoning off your chicken with the back of your knife and just eat the chicken - if you've marinated it for long enough you'll still get a decent kick, and if that's too mild you can always add a little of the scraped-off seasoning as a condiment, as you would with a little mustard.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value for Money, 21 April 2011
I'd just like to post a few brief comments on this item.

Firstly, the leather material is quite pleasant - exactly as expected, and the same as it looks in the photos.

Secondly, the clip on the front is one of those joint press-stud/magnet affairs, which works very well.

Thirdly, and not obvious from either the description, or any of the other reviews I've read, the leather covers some sort of hard board which protects the screen from knocks - it's not just a soft cover/wallet.

Fourthly, the 4 corner holders don't go over the top of, or hinder my access to any of the keys. I'm not sure if others are being too picky, or if the design has changed, but no trouble here.

Fifthly, the screen protector is most welcome, but take care when putting it on to avoid air bubbles.

Sixthly, the Kindle does not appear to over-heat in this product (as it apparently does in the official covers).

Seventhly, I know this should have been at least partially obvious from the photos, but the light is a completely separate item to the cover. It is not attached in any way. Neither is there any way of storing the light in/with the cover.

That said, and from what I've seen, the official Kindle lighted cover (with built in light) sheds light quite unevenly from one corner, and doesn't appear to be particularly adjustable. Frankly, I'd rather have this one.

All in all, this is a complete bargain for 18. I could knock a star off for the small niggles mentioned above, but I think this item is a lot closer to 100% (5 stars) than it is to 80% (4 stars), and I'm sure there are plenty of 'glass-half-empty' pessimists who enjoy the product as much as me, but who will knock off a whole star for the smallest problem, so 5 stars it is.

If you're thinking of buying a cover for your Kindle I'd give this one a close look. I'm not sure how it could be improved a great deal, and I doubt anyone would be able to make the same thing for a significantly lower price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great music, 13 Nov 2009
What a pleasure it is to see these Faith Brothers titles getting a re-release in the digital age.

Simply great music, which holds up as well today as it did then.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, but..., 23 April 2009
This review is from: Down The Line: Rarities (Audio CD)
Down the Line: Rarities

This is a long overdue official release of many great Buddy Holly rarities. For the first time we have official access to a number of legendary classics, mainly in superb sound quality. I doubt very much that any of the tracks here will ever sound better.

I have one problem with this release, and that is that it is unnecessarily incomplete.

Being a big Buddy Holly fan I've picked up numerous bootlegs over the years, including the 10 CD 'complete' boxed set. Many of the tracks on that unofficial release are surplus to requirements, even for Holly fans - 10 second snippets of live songs, where the sound is so bad that the listener is happy there were only 10 seconds - tracks by other artists on which Holly apparently appears, but where his contribution is hardly noteworthy, etc.

Take away these tracks, the interviews, the overdubbed versions, and the 'normal' releases (Peggy Sue, That'll Be the Day, etc), and you're left with around 3 CDs of `rare' material. And that's where this release falls short.

It could quite easily have been expanded to contain all of the real rarities, tied up in one nice little 3 CD set. This could have been accompanied by another 3 CD compilation full of Buddy's mainstream releases (as I've said, Peggy Sue, That'll Be the Day, etc), and 2 more single CDs, one with the Nashville & pre-Norman Petty recordings, and the other with all of the overdubbed material. Perhaps there could also be another release (1 or 2 CDs) with other artist's work on which Buddy appeared.

In other words we could have had a 'complete' Buddy Holly spread out over 4, 5 or 6 releases. Instead we have an incomplete rarities compilation which will leave us needing to buy future CDs, on which there'll doubtless be plenty of tracks from this release.

An opportunity missed.

Nonetheless, the sound quality is fantastic, and it's great to finally have many of these tracks on official CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 23 Mar 2005
Assessing pupils at KS3 in R.E. is a potential minefield; so many pupils, so many assessment criteria, so little time.
So it's a real joy to find a resource that makes the whole task easy.
Having drawn on the content of this book I set up an assessment regime in Lower School that was accurate, flexible, and easy to understand.
The result is an assessment process that works for specialist staff, non-specialist staff and pupils of all abilities. The process has also proved useful in preparing pupils for GCSE Religious Studies, and raising the profile of the subject.
That was my judgement on completing and implementing the new assessment regime, but it's nice to have your judgement backed up by others. Our school has just finished its OFSTED inspection. The initial feedback is that our assessments will be graded as either very good or excellent.
Cheers, Victor!
