5.0 out of 5 stars An essential item for any trip, 10 Aug 2012
I loved the concept of an eco-friendly friendly lantern, and have not been disappointed. No batteries needed - just leave it in the sun to charge, or alternatively wind it up! 6 bright LEDs provide a good all round light that you can even read a book by. It's size means it can fit easily into a rucksack and it doesn't take up much room. As an added bonus it also includes a radio! I will definately be taking this with me on all future camping trips.

5.0 out of 5 stars great little gadget, 10 Aug 2012
Love this radio! I got this for a camping trip and I'm so pleased with it. It's not bulky at all and is very easy to use. It has 2 dials on the side. One is on/off/volume, and the other is the tuning button. With the ariel extended it picks up the radio stations immediately (am and fm). The clarity is excellent, with no white noise interference. When not in use I just leave it on the window ledge to re-charge. Alternatively you can use the winding arm or the USB cable to charge it up - no batteries needed! It's also a handy size -it fits neatly into my rucksack pocket and doesn't take up too much room. I definately reccommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good, 17 Mar 2008
This review is from: Home Poultry Keeping (Paperback)
Certainly an interesting little book, but not at all comprehensive. We had it to hand when building our hen house. It said not to put the perches too high, but didn't specify a height, and this was a good example of how the whole book was laid out. Lots of general information, but just not specific enough, and not helpful in a pinch. There is no information about worming either. I will definately be binning this book and getting a better one.


Rape of Noah's Ark
Rape of Noah's Ark
by James Dewar
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting, 25 Aug 2007
This review is from: Rape of Noah's Ark (Hardcover)
I stumbled upon this book by accident, but I am very glad that I did. If you are at all interested in animal vivisection and exploitation, this book is a must read. It has a lot of information, backed up by factual evidence, and is very thought provoking. I would now think twice about going to the zoo! It is also written neutrally, ie. not biased to one view or the other. Down sides are sometimes it is a bit too factual and boring, and also it was published in 1969 and is now outdated, although still worth reading.

SYNOPSIS
Without sentiment or prejudice, James Dewar explores many facets of man's exploitation of wild animals, exposing an extensive, ruthless and profitable trade. The persistant demand for animals in medical and military research is emptying the jungles of mokeys and provides suburban pet thieves with easy money. Animal dealers often depend on smugglers and dirty supply lines for consignments of exotic animals and birds.
He looks at the case for and against vivisection and experimentation on animals and disentangles the hard facts which lie behind a wall of professional secrecy on one side, and the sometimes near-hysterical crusading zeal on the other. He anylses the figures quoted by the home office and examines the official attitude towards experiments on live animals. He considers claims made by some scientists and many anti-vivisectionists that the use of millions of laboratory animals is both dangerous and unnecessary.
The Rape of Noah's Ark also reveals that many zoos, far from contributing to conservation, actually drive some animals mad. A responsible and un-biased study which will lead many to question practices that we have come to accept as normal.

2.0 out of 5 stars different!, 1 Sep 2004
I brought this big fat book expecting another humorous, well written, enjoyable account of a couples struggle to survive on a smallholding. I was expecting cows, pigs, sheep, chickens etc. But I was very dissapointed with this book. No animals - they are strict vegetarians and no humour. Just essay after essay, and whole chapters on how we should eat vegetables, and how to build with stone. In fact, it is extremely boring and I still havn't finished it. I suggest no one will enjoy this book except for human behavior experts and sociologists. Sad, but true.
