5.0 out of 5 stars beach house baby, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You knock your bollox out for 29 years and you think you're finally getting there.

Then you see how these people have been living since the 60s and you suddenly realise why everybody wants to live in the West coast.

Great houses, greaqt stories. I'm not bitter, I'm collecting driftwood, and scouring for beach plots in West wales.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fab - they washers.

They don't cost a riduculous $20.00 for 4.

They turned up, like next day.

they helped me do a repair, that saved me 70 on a pair of Bugaboo wheels.

whats not to like

1.0 out of 5 stars not necessary, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this product for my toddler. My toddler was given a trampoline and it said don't use without foam mat. Turns out it was not necessary because he picked it up very quickly and never fell off.

Mats were OK but were grey not coloured. Not sure they would offer any significant protection from a fall over a thick carpet on aq wooden floor. If you were worried about your child you'd have to furnish the whole room and the 4 that I had weren't goning to do that.

not necessary, kids flop then they learn to bounce then the learn not to fall over so much - its called growing up

Sorry, its a book about one concept that is not really that interesting after two chapters. If there is anything to be learned from this experience....don't buy this book, get a life

This review is from: How to Be Black (Hardcover)
Sort of autobiographical take of being modern black american.

started off well, with some amusing insights but could keep up the pace. Perhaps would have been better as aqn occasional blog format, reporting on significant media events and more interesting/ amusing ancedotes

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, 26 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gattaca [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
I bought this because i wanted to see the film again, but alll the video shops have gone bust here in the UK.

First DVD would not load, they sent me a replacement with no quibbles.

OK film with an interesting take on our future/present dystopia, but not a classic. Great cast and acting.
