5.0 out of 5 stars Yes! This confirms what I believe is possible. ..., 5 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes! This confirms what I believe is possible. I am 80 years old, and started a running programme six months ago with a view to completing a 5K Parkrun in under 40 mins, (I am nearly there). I have looked closely at my diet in the last six months and taken advice from a close family member on this (he is a committed triathlete), and I have every intention of living well into my nineties, if not 100 yrs old.
Three siblings of my father lived into their nineties, so I believe genetics also come into it to some extent.

3.0 out of 5 stars Boring!, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well written but so repetetive, as I imagine his life was. But nothing much else happened during the 12 years so,difficult to make it hold the attention.
I understand the film was so much better - obviously, given the licence to portray his life in more detail graphically.

Nice to see events from his point of view for a change, which seem to differ from how other people perceived him

4.0 out of 5 stars Poor girls - what a life they endured!, 24 Jan. 2014

A good read, but I got a bit confused with all the inter-relationships. But historically well worth brushing up on!

Price: £4.29

4.0 out of 5 stars Auto LED Light, 7 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly what I wanted - enough light to walk length of hall to light switch at other end (not wanting to leave hall light on all evening).Cost of putting in new handy light switch too expensive at this time so this was a very good, and cheap, alternative.

This review is from: Innocent Traitor (Paperback)
Love Alison Weir's style of writing - she manages to capture the miderable life Lady Jane Grey endured,albeit with determination and resolution, and what a terribly sad ending - so strongly portrayed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight ice carpet, 15 Dec. 2012

Brilliant product which to date has been tested on heavy rain and very icy conditions, and it works! I have decking outside my patio door and my family were constantly worried because I was slipping and sliding in adverse conditions, and I am not exactly young - nearer 80 than 70! So I found this exellent product on line and wouldn't be without it now. Delivery also first class.

4.0 out of 5 stars sifcon disposable gloves, 15 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
- good value for money - who wants to pay more when they are used for "picking up" after dogs! Delivery time good.
Have given 4 stars as it's difficult to say I "love" the product when you consider what they are used for!
