The Night Side of Nature (Wordsworth Myth, Legend &hellip by Catherine Crowe
11 of 11 people found the following review helpful
'Night Side of Nature' by Catherine Crowe was first published in 1848 and enjoyed great success for 50 years but now, unfortunately, is largely forgotten - a shame since it is a paranormal tour de force. It is packed with almost 400 pages of accounts of apparitions of all varieties interspersed with arguments for and against investigators findings and opinions and is possibly the single best all around read on ghostly experiences. Catherine Crowe was also the first person to bring the word 'poltergeist' into the English language - the famous discussion is included in the Wordsworth publication which brings both volumes into one book. (A wee note - when Mrs Crowe writes of 'somnambules' she… Read more
Black & Decker 12v Pivot Nose Dustbuster Handheld &hellip by Black & Decker

I bought this handheld after the Dyson I bought konked out after a couple of months. This vacuum is superior to the expensive Dyson DC31 Animal Handheld Vacuum and it's kind. Even when the trash compartment is full it is as powerful as the Dyson, and when emptied it is twice as strong. Fully charged it lasts longer than the Dyson and is much lighter to hold.

2.0 out of 5 stars not worth it, 8 Sep 2010
The best thing about this product is the head for picking up pet hair - it acts like one of those manual vacuum sweepers. As for the machine, it konked out after a couple of months, it's heavy for a hand held and not that powerful. The 'easy' empty trash compartment never opened easily and fully charged you're really lucky to get 10 mins out of it. After this very expensive handheld went kaput I bought a Black & Decker 12v Pivot Nose Dustbuster Handheld which is close to a 100 cheaper. The cyclone operation on the Dyson might give you an even vacuum until it suddenly stops but it is still not as powerful as the Black and Decker. On the Black & Decker, even when the trash compartment is… Read more
