They are okay...Pretty good really. A bit heavy if you are walking far, but do the job well enough; and they are very warm.

3.0 out of 5 stars Who Do You Believe?, 9 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Much of what Mr. Freeman says is rooted in historical fact, but unfortunately, in fairly undermining the power and integrity of the Churches of Christendom, he seems to miss the point of the Bible, which is unfortunate. It is worth a read, but do not be swayed by the authors personal views, but only by the facts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Are You a Fool or a Horse?, 9 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want to sit back and laugh, this is a box set worth having. The timing of the punch lines, the body language, and the facial expressions are all so funny; and the endless schemes that rarely work out are cleverly complicated. Clever, historical, and seriously crazy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Are We All Type Cast, 9 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eat Right 4 Your Type (Paperback)
We do all have a blood type, but we know from DNA that we are much more individual than just that. This book's author suggests that our blood group will dictate our reactions, good or bad , to the various food stuffs we eat. Does the writer convince me that this is true? Not yet, because it takes time to see. The concept though is worth reading about, and exploring; and all the more so if you have long term ill health. I would not recommend the methods here, and nor would I condemn them. What I do recommend is that you read this, and make your own mind up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Way to Raise Your Expectations., 9 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Different ideas are worth exploring, and all the more so, if you have long term health issues to contend with. Thos book raises an area that few have ever thought about. It is to early for me to recommend the suggestions, but I can recommend reading the book, and weighing up what it says for yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wind That Shakes the Barley...Tragedy based on truth., 22 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The time of the Easter Rising, and the sad events that followed in Ireland's history are sadly told in this account; and anyone interested in Irish History, the tragedy of the Civil War, or the way local War impacts on families, would find this film interesting; but if you suffer from depression, or the Blues, it will not lift your heart at all. The story is well dramatized, and the standard of acting is excellent; but I for one, do not like the way, that these days, every desire to produce reality, leads to bad language being used in every other breath. That was the one thing that spoiled the film for me. However, the story is told, and as I said, told well...May we pray that Ireland never returns to this, and that people around the Earth who live amid similar conflict, may have their escape from it soon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Fiction of the Cold War Years, and the Secret Servicess, 19 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book gives an interesting view of the CIA, MI6, and the KBG, in those Cold War years, and though fictionalised, it is obviously a well researched work; and includes many actual happenings. It is fast paced, and exciting, but I promise you, it will do nothing to make you feel safer in this World, where the great powers like to meddle in everyone else's affairs; always claiming they have justification, but always with hidden agendas of their own. Some of the characters are very likeable, though some are fairly repulsive. I think the amount of strong language, and sex, spoils the story somewhat. Realism, is okay, but I do wonder why authors no longer leave anything to the readers imagination in these areas. I don't think any of the role players here come out with flying colours; and one is left with the feeling that the lives of any man or woman in the street, does not count for much. The KGB, and the Western Security services seemed to feel that the end usually justifies the means...I do not have cause to think that has changed much, but anyone reading this book, will find they have a better insight into what was...As well as how often it came to what might have been...I am sixty years old, and remember much of the events in this Story. I am grateful we survived, but would not like to trust any of the organizations in this story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Man Called Horse., 7 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Man Called Horse [DVD] (DVD)
This film, though of course, written in story form, does give some insight into the culture of Native Americans. It is not the average Western, nor the 100% authentic documentary; but nonetheless, it does dignify a people, and shed some light on how life was before 'civilization' forced indigenous Americans, to accept a system foreign to them...Beside all that, it is a good story, but not for those who are delicate. An English Lord, who goes native, has to be a good tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, and satisfying purchase, 2 July 2010

Very plesed with this film. For so many years Native Americans were painted by Hollywood as Savages...By the descendants of those who savaged them. This story helps to set a balance, and reveals interesting points about the culture of some of them. Worth buying, and worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Grace...And Amazing William, 22 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Amazing Grace [DVD] (DVD)
This D.V.D. is excellent in so many ways. It certainly shows that there have been individuals in the World of Politics, who really wanted to serve for the good of people. William Wilberforce was indeed, a kindly, patient, and caring individual; and his story is well told here. It is well produced, and contains sadness, and joy, seriousness, and humour. My recommendation is, 'watch it', and especially if you have just been elected to serve the people. When you have watched it, obtain a copy of the book 'William Wilberforce', written by Stephen Tomkins. That helped me get a rounded out view of this unusualy benevolent politician. Oh, and remember, there is still a slave trade, so this subject is still very relevant.
