Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History by Florence Williams
4.0 out of 5 stars What a good read, 3 May 2014
Informative, easy to read and well argued. I ended up agreeing with William's point of view ESPECIALLY on the lousy pervasive over-sexualisation of breasts (even in high reserach academia) to the detriment to any research of their obviously primary function to feed an infant.

Did you know that the breast is the only human organ without its own specialization within medicine?

Dr Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Boris Karloff
5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful classic, 3 May 2014
How can you not love this? My children and I watch it again and again and not just at Christmas. 'The Grinch' is good moral tale about selfishness making you unhappy. A very christian tale without any hint of a reference to Christianity in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent film, 3 May 2014
This is the kind of film that reminds you why we should all be grateful for European (in particular French) cinema. Beautiful, poignant and unpredictable.

The film is a visually wonderful account of a woman, who seems like any other on the underside of life, but who is exceptionally gifted, and through her talents shows up our preconceptions of what makes an artist or a person valuable. The film felt touched with divine grace, just like its protagonist and yes I did weep.
