Veho VMS-004 Discovery Deluxe USB Microscope with &hellip by Veho

Really pleased with this fun microscope.

On a Mac, don't worry about any additional software. Just plug in the microscope and using the Mac standard Photo Booth, select the camera. As with other reviewers, I was confused by the fact it only works at 20x and 400x and nothing in between, and you have to rotate the focus wheel two full turns to switch between the two. But once you realise this, everything is fine and dandy.

It may be me, but I find this kind of book difficult.
This is Shakesperean scholarship dressed up as fiction. Told as the life story of one of Shakespeare's boy actors, we hear a version of Shakespeare's early life, his sex life, and the roots of the sonnets. This is erudite stuff, and the humorous fictional dressing struggles to hide the erudition.
The theories are probably sound - I respect the author - but the rendition is clumsy. I much prefer his other, more rumbustious book, Mrs Shakespeare.

The choir of St John's has a spectacular dynamic range which complements Walton's music brilliantly. The crashing chords and almost brass-like quality of the scores come across fantastically.
