Philips Onis 200 Vox Digital Cordless Phone with A&hellip by Philips
4.0 out of 5 stars Nothing is perfect!, 24 Mar 2013
We have had one of these phones, with two base stations, for a very long time. It has been reliable and withstood storage for a year before being reinstalled in my new home last year. I have had to buy a replacement (refurbished) handset which is just beginning to show signs of ageing. First step in this regeneration process is to buy new batteries and hopefully this will sort out its lack of energy! One very good aspect of this phne is that the numbers are stored on the base station, and not the handset. Therefore replacing a handset does not incur the pain of re-storing the phone directory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer enjoyment, 9 Nov 2010
I love this production of The Mikado. Whenever I watch it, it really lifts my spirits and I want to join in the dancing! The characters are so good and of course the singing is impecable. Eric Idle as Ko-Ko is hilarious. Lesley Garrett as Yum-Yum is coy and charming, Felicity Palmer as Katisha is awesome, and Richard Van Allan as Pooh-Bah is so "retro" it's not true!

I would dearly love to have a copy of this production on DVD but it appears to be only available in US format. It would cost a lot to pay to have it transferred commercially, but as I no longer have a Video player, this is probably my only option to be able to watch this gem in the future.

I love this book and have given it as gifts to a number of children.

It tells the story of a lion cub who has no wish to fight and hunt other animals, but instead just wants to love them and be friends with them. His mother is worried that Leo will never survive in the wild if he does not learn to hunt for his food. Because he doesn't want to harm other animals he is told to leave the pride and so he goes off on his own and proceeds to make friends and live with the other animals in the jungle. He takes care of them and rescues them when they get into difficulties. Eventually Leo, with the help of his jungle friends, saves a young cheetah that falls into a river, and all the… Read more
