I Dig Dirt [DVD] [2000] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
I Dig Dirt [DVD] [2000] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Stirlin Harris

5.0 out of 5 stars my son is obsessed, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i have ordered this because my son watched it nearly every day with his grandparents in america. it is cleverly done, very educational and perfect for kids obsessed with diggers and dump trucks etc. it shows kids getting to "drive" them and learning about what they do, and then they sing the "i dig dirt" song (based on frere jaques) which i'm afraid is rather catching. only 40 minutes long, so better than a full-length movie and educational. the only annoying thing is that it only seems to exist in ntsc. but i have discovered that if you download vlc media player, which is free, you can play ntsc videos on your computer without the whole region switching thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars exactly what i needed for my summer pregnancy!, 22 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
knowing i was going to be spending part of trimesters 2 and 3 in a hot climate, and not being a fan of showing off my bra straps, i ordered these. they were perfect! they gave enough support and i barely felt like i was wearing them. no irritating seams or anything to bug me. in fact they look enough like a tank top that if they are seen, say with a low-cut neckline, it doesn't look like a bra. the removable pads make them perfect for wearing with t-shirts as they hide nipples sticking out. and the pack has the essential colours, really - i never needed any other colour. i basically have been wearing them exclusively for the last 2 months, and as the final 2 months of my pregnancy embark i expect i will still be wearing them a lot. in fact i will probably wear them a lot for the rest of my life!

5.0 out of 5 stars total Godsend, 5 Nov 2010
our baby boy, now 7 weeks old, always screamed and screamed in his old baby bathtub, but ever since getting this one he has calmed down and last night genuinely enjoyed his bath for the first time ever. i think it's because he can sit and therefore feels more secure, instead of being held in dad's hands over the tub or propped up. he is just over 8 lbs (3.6 kg) but can already sit in this tub without us supporting him. it is still quite big for him, so he will be able to use it or a long time. it has made a world of difference!

UPDATE: at 3.5 months we went on holiday and had to use the in-laws' normal baby bath. reaction: ok, then perplexity, then screaming like he did in the old days. when we came home he used his tippitoes bath again and our smiley, happy, splashing baby was back!

5.0 out of 5 stars The REAL Fanny Price, 19 Feb 2008
This review is from: Mansfield Park [DVD] (DVD)
I couldn't agree more with Booklover, the first reviewer. I am quite sick of everyone trying to make Fanny Price saucy and brash, which seem to be prerequisites for a female heroine these days. This film's Fanny - Austen's (and thus the real) Fanny - gives us another type of heroine: quiet, shy, insecure, like many of us, who in the end musters the strength to stand up for what she believes in when all around her fall. This film portrays her without cowtowing to modern sensibilities. Fanny is like the shy, quiet girl in the class that no-one can really figure out and some think must be uppity. Misunderstood, bearing secret dreams and passions, emotionally abused by her adoptive family, she represents the part of the population who is not Elizabeth Bennett or Emma Woodhouse and never will be - and doesn't necessarily want to be! She shows us that you can be strong without shouting and that you can stand your ground against your peers and society without standing on a soapbox - would that more people could learn to do this!

As for its length - since when has a real Jane Austen fan ever complained about an adaptation being too long!? (Rather the contrary)
