In My Own Words:
My name's Anna, am 30 (weep), a Christian and ich bin ein circus peanut. I feel really, really blessed to be a member of Vine and it's not something I take for granted... promise. Not sure how much to write here, so I'll err on the side of only a leedle bit. I hope you're having a lovely day, whoever is reading this.

Instant Recall French, 6-Hour MP3 Audio Program by Michael Gruneberg

3.0 out of 5 stars Humm, 19 Feb 2010
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Having done French (reluctantly... in fact much of class was spent drawing unicorns in the margins of my exercise books) at school, it's all gone apart from the very basickest of basics. And "ou est le gare?" which, for some reason, stuck. As kids, why do we resent learning languages when, as an adult, it's such a wonderful skill to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars You should totally get one of these, like, 16 Feb 2010
This ampy thingie is fantastically cool. It really does look like a wee amp, and when people see it, they invariably give a whispered "ooooh" before grinning happily. Really, this thing makes people smile.

It has Bass, Treble and Volume dials, and you can also adjust your volume via yer actual MP3, also, so if you're looking to rattle windows, crank it up to 11 (metaphorically... it's awesome, but it's not ironic) on both MP3 and amp and away you go. The top volume really does pack a punch, though, so you may want to experiment a little. Equally, the Bass and Treble dials aren't just there for decoration - they completely alter the sound quality, and increasing the Bass really… Read more

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is quite a nice book, really. Bit bigger than A5ish and crammed with information and photos. Details on 300 festivals around the world, split into the following headings:

~ Art and Culture
~ Family
~ Food and Drink
~ Glamorous
~ Music
~ Natural Wonders
~ Spectacular (sounds ambiguous, this one. Amongst others, this section includes Chinese New Year; New Orleans Mardi Gras and Trooping the Colour)
~ Spiritual and Religious
~ Sport and Adventure
~ Weird and Wonderful (has things like Summer Redneck Games; Roswell UFO Festival and Alpine Beard Festival... couldn't tell ya)

They are also listed by location and date so, in… Read more
