Small Town Misfits Jenny Queen MP3 Download
This is the third album from Ohio born, Sydney based, Jenny Queen, a singer songwriter, author and natural history geek, which is how I got to this album. As the title suggests the album is a cycle of songs about small town life, literate songs which are well crafted and which draw the listener in. Jenny's songs show some essential elements in common with a few of my favourite bands, the Bottle Rockets, Drive-by Truckers and even Slobberbone, in that she is telling a story in each song, without forgetting that these are songs and making sure that there's a good tune to match.

Politics and the English Language by George Orwell
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The first part of this publication is an essay on the use of the English language and the prevalence of poor, lazy English among the political writers of the mid twentieth century.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable, 1 Mar 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After three days this router loses its internet connection every 5-10 minutes. I am on BT Broadband and the HomeHub was a lot more stable and gave a better Wi-Fi signal than this, my I phone 4GS responds better if I switch off wi-fi when it is in range of this router. Unless performance improves I will be reverting back to the HomeHub. I see a lot of satisfied reviewers on these pages but even with the power of the internet (when it's on) I can't find an explanation or solution to my intermittent access.
