5.0 out of 5 stars A book to recommend to friends, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I picked up this book at a friend's house and it was so interesting I wanted to get my own copy. It is an incredible story of running, Tarahumara in Copper Canyon, ultra marathoners, philosophy, diet, shoes, life in general. Since then I have bought 2 more copies to send to friends. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars an absolutely perfect movie, 3 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blue Jasmine [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
I saw this movie in the US and thought it was stunning. Every detail of the movie - directing, acting, casting, costumes, props etc - is so well thought out. Every actor nailed her/his role. I don't usually care for Woody Allen movies but this is one of the best movies I have seen in years so I bought a copy to share with friends.

Rustins WHISW250 250ml Satin - White
Rustins WHISW250 250ml Satin - White

3.0 out of 5 stars Probably good paint but not for my purposes, 3 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have gotten great results from other Rustins paint but I was using this on a sheep skull and it was too crunchy bright white and it did not adhere all that well. The Rustins matte and also the Rustins shiny black paint for metal and wood works perfectly on skulls but only comes in black and I wanted to use a white. So, I would probably use this paint for things like repainting a freezer but would not use on skulls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really interesting, 14 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breakfast at Tiffany's (Paperback)
Of course we all love the movie Breakfast At Tiffany's but it was fascinating to read the story since the character in the book is much more hard core than the sweet pure Holly Golightly of the movie. This copy also has 3 short stories.
