In My Own Words:
A software manager, visiting research fellow and drummer - and an obsessive collector of books and music CDs. I always use the Amazon reviews when looking for new things - and also benefit from the "Recommendations" - so it's only fair to add to this amazing database.

Books: sci-fi, historical (alternative and otherwise) fiction, [some] fantasy, travel, biographies (now that I'm getting old!) and science. Music: Early classics (baroque) and 20th century classics, jazz (coltrane and later), 60s and 70s rock and all… Read more

NEW | sussed! | VICES & VIRTUES | hilarious person&hellip by Games to Get

Another excellent variation on the Sussed brand.

I have played (and reviewed) a couple of the previous Sussed games - and have used them as part of team building exercises (to great amusement from the team).

This one is a bit more personal in its questions - being called "Vices and Virtues" is a bit of a clue!

So, I will probably not play this with the team, and have instead tried it out on a family gathering.. to great hilarity!

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A salad a day - to brighten up your lunchbox.

My wife saw this reviewed in the Sunday paper - so we thought we would have a look.
There is indeed a salad for every day of the year - and a simple salad building method:
- bottom layer of leaves etc
- then the various vegetables, fruit or whatever you fancy
- a variety of protein options (fish, meat etc)
- and finally all sorts of toppings - herbs, dressings

Not sure I will manage a salad every day... but some great ideas to liven up that bit of lettuce left in the fridge

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A different view of cooking - for those of us who think the world revolves around potatoes!

I am not looking for a diet book, but though this would give me a new view of cooking.
It doesn't feature radically new ideas - just some reasonably tasting looking carb-free alternatives.

Not sure I will be using this very often - but there is (pun...) some food for thought!
