Smokin' At The Paradiso - Live in Amsterdam

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended., 7 April 2014

Phew! Where to start? This cd gives off good vibes even before you open it. It's on Corazong Records which resonates with Willie's background image; looking grand and imposing on the cover with his accepted colourful personage. So...it's Willie live in Amsterdam 2000, in front of a really appreciative audience and everything combines to get your foot tapping and put a smile on your face. In the booklet, in just 5 sentences, Amazon.com's Jeff Shannon nails the Nelson aura.Top-class written appraisals also from Dan Heaton Ed Wapper and Neal Mayborn. 68 minutes of real pleasure here from the irrepressible Willie Nelson. 20 numbers. Guaranteed any follower would enjoy this one.

To think - I saw Willie in concert at The London Palladium in early 1969 when Hank Snow was top of the bill. Willie was dressed in a suit with short back-and-sides haircut.Jimmy Day on steel guitar. Memorable!


Soil  Soul  Society: A New Trinity for Our Time

5.0 out of 5 stars Soil, Soul, Society by Satish Kumar., 29 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Today's leaders and those in power will cold-shoulder the principles advocated in this book. They will mock Satish Kumar as being an idealist, pronouncing him as someone who needs to "get real". Yet, as Satish asks, what have the realists achieved? Millions dead in wars. Millions dying of hunger and starvation, et al. How can we stop the rot? Satish calls for benevolent individuals and organisations such as Friends Of The Earth, Greenpeace, Oxfam, Medecins San Frontieres, etc., to come together and form a strong movement for change and transformation. Let the ayes have it! For the present, get this book and realise there can be a turn-about in policy for this afflicted world.


Gardening and Planting by the Moon 2014: Higher Yields in Vegetables and Flowers
Gardening and Planting by the Moon 2014: Higher Yields in Vegetables and Flowers
by Nick Kollerstrom
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Gardening & Planting by the Moon 2014., 28 Mar 2014

This book's O.K. because it's the only publication I know that produces a lunar calendar. This is indispensable for me as I preserve a natural, wildlife-friendly suburban garden for which gardening by the moon plays an integral part. Apart from the calendar, however,the emphasis is on astrology which, to my mind, was too in depth. I simply want to do the right thing on the right day.I had a book titled "The Art Of Timing" which met this criteria but sadly is no longer current. Nevertheless I've retained the section from it that straightforwardlly tells what to do within each constellation period. Cross-referenced with "Gardening & Planting"'s calendar showing when these constellations are in effect, it works a treat. Nick' s book is recommended for all those who could follow and understand Patrick Moore's "The Sky At Night" on TV!

5.0 out of 5 stars There's only one Dolly Parton!, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recall one chap on-line expressing his disillusionment at finding this anthology not being resolute Bluegrass, and the title is indeed a misnomer. But what we do have here are 18 of Dolly's songs so movingly powerful as to move a grown man to tears. They appertain to her formative years, portraying eloquently of her surroundings as the fourth of 12 children in a poor family brought up in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. So I think it's best to override iffy categorisations here and simply immerse ourselves in a collection of wonderful heartfelt music.


Gardening for Birdwatchers
Gardening for Birdwatchers
by M. P. Toms
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.96

5.0 out of 5 stars Garden birds- more than just names., 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I form my garden in a natural way to create a place where garden birds can visit and inhabit in a life-enhancing way. With suburbia all around such areas are gradually diminishing. I'm a Garden Birdwatcher for The British Trust For Ornithology, from whom this book emanates (Mike Toms is their Head of Garden Ecology).For anyone who finds their eyes continually drawn to watching the birds outside their windows, I wholeheartedly recommend they get in touch with the BTO. Gain a therapeutic pastime!
