4.0 out of 5 stars cosy slippers, 18 Nov. 2014

Good fit, very comfy especially now the weather has turned around. Original design, goes with everything. Slips on are the easy option but hold them to your feet going up or down stairs, well if you're over a certain age!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's amazing how they recognise quickly what can and can't be ..., 18 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for my five year old grandson. He spent almost a day playing with it and was most imaginative in its use. The colours are lovely and I think it offers children spatial awareness and learning how to be precise with their fingers and hands. It's amazing how they recognise quickly what can and can't be done.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super intelligence or super accident, 18 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very clearly written book which I think quite rightly pointed out to the Mr. Dawkins of this world (he and those who so heavily criticise Midgley) who seem to need to present us with irrefutable truths, presumably something to do with their own personal positions, that we have no complete or final answers to the major and exceedingly complex questions about the origins and survival of life. She pointed out that Darwin had been misrepresented in Dawkins' book, being an unjustifiable peg on which to hang the 'selfish gene' hat, ignoring that in all Darwin's investigations he himself recognised that his discoveries were only part of the answer, not the whole of it.
I would point Midgley's critics to the exceedingly exciting BBC physics documentary, 2013/2014, about the world's ultra experiment at Cern in the hunt for the Higgs Boson 'X factor' life particle. It both succeeded and failed, showing that either of the two theories, super-synchronicity or chaos, could be correct. Super intelligence or super accident, take your pick after the hadron collider experiment 'succeeded' in 2013. What the programme did, I think, was to uphold the basic premise of Mary Midgley's book that in our innate enthusiasm to find those particular truths for which we search about life on earth, we are usually exceeding the limits of our own understanding.

Wherever people stand that suits them on the subject of life's origins should be respected, at least in the way we might respect Mr Dawkins for his undoubted intellectual efforts to scientifically uncover the truth. But beyond that a little humility and a recognition that the questions remain out there, and may do eternally, goes a long way. The search however is the thing as seen by me to be shown in this excellent book 'The Solitary Self'.


Natural Ice Medicated Lip Balm (4 Pack) SPF 30 Protectant / Sport Sunscreen
Natural Ice Medicated Lip Balm (4 Pack) SPF 30 Protectant / Sport Sunscreen

5.0 out of 5 stars Lip saver, 6 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use a lip balm every day to prevent a recurring herpes virus that lives in your system and just waits for adverse weather to come out, heat or cold. This total lip block does the job and I have a job finding something at factor 30/35 SPF. This is excellent balm and did the trick when I was out in the sun on holiday recently. Arrived quickly and well-packed

Schwarzkopf Supersoft Volumising Hairspray 250 ml - Pack of 6

5.0 out of 5 stars volumising hair spray, 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This really does the trick for someone like myself with very fine (thin) hair. I can style it then spray and my goodness the spray although very light gives the hair body, or looks like it. Very speedy delivery, well wrapped, so a contented customer. Magpie.

Arrived in very good time, nicely packed. Have read some of his previous books and was impressed. This must be one of his best. A quiet writer but a forceful imagination pertinent to our time and all previous time. MG

Arrived well packed and well on time. They are excellent value for money although they might be seconds, don't care at the price, as the lips have a slight fault in them but doesn't affect the drinking. Thanks. MG
