Family Life by Sally Magnusson
Family Life by Sally Magnusson
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 18 Jun 2014
This an excellent book from broadcaster Sally Magnusson, as she guides us through some of the lighter sides of life as a working mother-of-five. A collection of events and vignettes rather than a full-on autobiography, she writes in a style that is easy to read and highly enjoyable.
World's Greatest '80s Tribute To Madonna ~ Various Artists
3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of a Mixed Bag, 18 Jun 2014
As a huge Madonna fan I am always keen to hear new and exciting cover versions of her songs. This album of covers by 80s artists is a bit of a mixed bag. As much as cover versions should try to do something different, they need to at least sound slightly like the song, and Bigod 20's 'Like a Prayer' and Heaven 17's 'Holiday' are just too far from the original to be enjoyable.

However, versions of 'Into The Grove,' 'Borderline,' and 'Lucky Star' are fantastic getting the balance between staying true to the original and trying something new exactly right.
Jumbo / Giant Desktop Calculator with Giant Button&hellip NCWholesale
As a calculator it is perfectly functional, but the quality of the product is quite poor - very cheap, flimsy plastic and I can imagine it could get damaged/broken quite easily. Then again, you get what you pay for and for the price, it's really not that bad.
