Parenting for Character: Equipping Your Child for Life
Parenting for Character: Equipping Your Child for Life
by Andrew Mullins
Edition: Paperback
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 14 Sept. 2010
An intelligent, thought-provoking back to basics look at key virtues and character traits that are often overlooked - not always unintentionally - in childrearing in the modern age. The author has produced a succinct volume that presents his own observations on the subject (gleaned from 25 years of exposure as a school headmaster) with those of ancient thinkers and more contemporary authors. Gently written without hint being didactive or arrogant, and with plenty of insightful anecdotes, 'Parenting for Character' will be especially valuable for families of Christian ethos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start here!, 11 May 2004
This review is from: The Shed Sessions (Audio CD)
I've been a fan since I heard them on BBC Radio 1 in concert in the late 90s'. Unfortunately the fact at least 4 members of the band have passed away (as detailed in the fantastic CD case booklet) means we're unlikely to be hearing them live again. The hard rootsy/ mbira stuff here is really raw e.g. 'Manhenga', 'Hupenyu Hangu'...fantastic!!! There are only about 3 weakish tracks: the bland, boring 'Chimanimani' and 'Simbimbino' and the unimaginative, monotonous 'Muchihwa'. Very good audio quality. Viva chimurenga! (though am not so sure about Bob Mugabe!).

4.0 out of 5 stars Under-rated group, 18 Jan. 2002
This review is from: Me Gusta Todo (Audio CD)
Alexis Murillo & this band (LNDP) from the underdeveloped Chocco region of Pacific coastal Colombia are prob better known on the European circuit....the competition is too hot at home!!! LNDP are actually not a well known musical force in their native Colombia.....so the Colombians tell me!!!
Fruko y sus Tesos, Latin Bros, Joe Arroyo, Orc Guayacan, Grupo Niche (all excellent) & the miscellaneous Cumbia arrangements are better known, while of course Shakira, Carlos Vives & the more modern groups are probably more hip with the younger set.
An undeniably talented combo, this CD provides a good look at their material & the audio quality is excellent. Genre is more like Cuban 'Son' than Cumbia or other Colombian styles. The group members, I understand, are of Black African rather than Hispanic heritage.
The lyrics are often quite tasty/cheeky in some of the songs (suggestive rather than rude....all within the bounds of common decency) altho' I've garnered this more from my Colombian friends rather than myself as my Spanish is not great. The rhytms/percussion & tres playing of Murillo would be hard to beat.

Buy if you like good danceable Latin music.
Best tracks: Aname, La Estampilla, Nadie Sabe Lo De Adentro, Me Gusto Todo, No La Llores Mas & Una Novia Valluna, tho' there are no really weak tracks.
