Die Hard: Legacy Collection (Films 1-5) [Blu-ray] [1988] Whoever designed the menus for this blu-ray collection clearly did them on the cheap. The films look good but the menus are useless. There is no main menu at all, so once the disc has finished loading you are straight into the film. Fair enough - unless you want subtitles or a commentary, and then it's irritating.

Kirkpatrick Cast Brass Pull Handle 9" (B564) by Kirkpatrick
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality, 16 May 2012

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't get caught out!, 9 Aug 2010
This is the American version of Caroline Taggart's book "A Classical Education" which came out in 2009, so if you have that, don't buy this!
This is a fascinating book, full of information about how much Ancient Greece and Rome have affected our way of living, well written and at times very funny. It has American spelling, of course, so if that bothers you, buy the other version.
