5.0 out of 5 stars Dixieland Gem in Bargain Basement., 30 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Haven't the time to write an in depth review, but just to state this album is worthy of five stars. Great variety and the sound quality is excellent especially given the age of some of the recordings. And at less than a pound a disc, too good not to purchase. Pip Pip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product and service, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not a particularly large person but sometimes have to buy a large especially when the sizes go small, med, large, x large,xx large, xxx large and so on. The tee shirt I ordered from TshirtGrill (large) was just a tad too large to wear. However, they exchanged it free of charge, with absolutely no fuss and within a couple of days. The medium fits perfect and I would not hesitate to use TshirtGrill again.Excellent service.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dachshund Pin Badge, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pewter Pin Badge Dog Dachshund
This pin badge is ace and excellent value for money. It secures firmly with two pins. I have put it on my leather handbag and it looks terrific. People are always commenting on it and asking where I got it. It's that good I had to buy a second one for my girlfriend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shirley Curley LOVES GIG, 15 Oct. 2009
This is an excellent book. Simon Armitage is a natural writer. He does wander about a bit but only in good way and always with a purpose, even if it's only a roundabout route to a cracking punch line. I found myself nodding in agreement with several parts of the book, especially when he's describing the yell/shriek at the beginning of The Damned's "New Rose". It's a very funny book. I read it on a long coach journey while listening to my ipod and my fiancé kept prodding me and saying "You're laughing very loudly". To which I replied "I know". It also has its disturbing and quite frankly harrowing moments. None more so than when Armitage describes the murky goings on in a Travel Lodge near you. If you've never really understood the attraction of bands such as Simply Red or UB40 read this book and you'll laugh like a drain. If you think the aforementioned bands are some kind of musical colossus read this book, you might learn something. Five stars and no mistake.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Believe Everything, 28 Sept. 2009
My last batch of discs were Verbatim 700MB 52x 80min. I read all the reviews and verbatim came highly recommended, on the net, and personally. For the reasonable price they seemed the best bet, but I've had more than my fair share of skipping music since I started using them. I aways burn music at X 20 (because that was recommended as the best speed) but am wondering wether to start wacking them out at X 24. Any road up I've switched to the Philips (god knows who makes them, might even be Philips) and so far everything has been tickety boo, so I would definately recommend them. But remember a lot of this stuff is subjective and some people can get a tad paranoid about certain things so don't believe everything you read.

This is a handy little map with street index and an index of featured places (colleges, museums, etc, but shockingly no pubs). The map itself shows car parks, toilets including disabled facilities, theatres and performing arts centres and the information centre, which is in Broad Street. Studying the map in detail it only appears to show one PH symbol which stands for public house. It doesn't name this pub but you can take it from me it's the Turf Tavern in Bath Place and well worth a visit. There are also scores of other great pubs in and around the City centre but none appear to be shown on the map. But hey it's only £1.50 to buy which is very reasonable, but if you want a tip why buy it from Amazon? If you buy a used one for a penny you still have to fork out £2.75 for postage. So why don't you pop into a real book shop and put some cash on the counter. You never know you might see a book in there that takes your fancy and you could end up buying that too. You might even bump into a nice hunky guy, and lets face it if you see one of them in a book shop chances are he's probably in there to pick up women. So good luck and enjoy Oxford Town. Pip Pip.

4.0 out of 5 stars Oxford City Guide, 14 July 2009
Quite a good book with a handy pub and restaurant pull out map in the back. On the downside I couldn't find any information regarding choral evensong which was a suprising ommision. Also, it listed information regarding certain college tours but when I phoned (ie Hertford), I was told no tour was available. On the whole a very good book on a city that if you've never visited, visit now! You won't be dissapointed..
