Through it All I've Always Laughed: Memoirs of Count Arthur Strong
Through it All I've Always Laughed: Memoirs of Count Arthur Strong
by Count Arthur Strong
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

5.0 out of 5 stars You either love him or can't see the point, 17 Jan. 2017
what can I say about The Count? You either love him or can't see the point. If you are considering buying his book, I assume you have heard his radio shows, and maybe watched the TV series; so are by now hooked. Everyone of us knows or has come across an "Arthur" sometime in our lives. It's different to the radio shows/TV in as much as it's a memoir. If you love Arthur, you must get this book.

This review is from: Legally Blonde [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
you don't have to be girly to watch this chick flick . yes, It's silly, frothy and a bit daft on the surface; but it holds hidden messages. The leading female character (Reese) is a ditsy blonde; but she is basically a sweet, kind, funny person, who makes friends easily because she genuinely likes and cares about people. The plot is hardly new; boy decides to dump daft girlfriend when he goes to posh university to study law; so she enrols too. The moral is by working damn hard and being a nice person, we can achieve much more than we realise. One of my favourite films I can now watch on a dull, rainy afternoon, ( with chocs, fluffy slippers and a warm throw ) when I need cheering up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased to have got this little gismo, 18 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very simple to use, even for non-technohead me! Linked to computer with USB cable supplied meant can store all pix on laptop as JPGs, and "fine tune" each pix using Adobe Phtoshop (or similar) if wished. Very pleased to have got this little gismo. Much cheaper than getting local shop to do the job; all you use is your own time. I've now offered to do my family and friends slides for them !!

5.0 out of 5 stars fun and quirky programme, 8 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
you are either a full-on fan of Ugly Betty; or you just don't get it. Basically each episode on the surface is crazy American people in the fashion mag business, who wear loud clothes and bitch a lot; but look deeper and we find a morality theme. Good, honest people eventually win over against the bitchy, sneaky ones. Betty looks weird, dresses over-the-top, tries too hard to please everyone; but you cannot help loving her...she's so nice, honest and kind. Everyone should have a "Betty" friend!
All the other characters are very strong; even the nasty ones sometimes show their vulnerable side. It's almost like a panto...you hiss at the villains, and cheer on the losers. Give it a try.....you will get hooked!!

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the Greats, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Artist [DVD] (DVD)
Certainly a one-off film by today's standards of technicolour, 3-d and computer generated stuff. Yes, it is silent; with very few subtitles. Yes, it is black and white. The thing is after a few minutes you hardly notice both these things. The 2 leads are French; the producer is American, and the chauffeur is English; but as it's silent, it doesn't matter, and you can imagine they are all American, as it's set in Hollywood. The story is quite basic; but is done so brilliantly that it makes for a great film. Even the dog is a good actor, stealing every scene it's in. In today's fast-moving techno World, this harks back to a more innocent era. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars weird and wacky show with a morality tale, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I just love this show. It is so different to anything else I can think of. The characters are like pantomime people, with their loud colourful clothes, and over-the-top performances. Most of the magazine workers are either bitchy, two-faced, or down right rude to each other. In the cut-throat business it's dog-eat-dog. All except the lovely Betty and her family. She looks kookie, tries too hard to please everyone, and is always being taken for a ride by someone. Betty cares about people and their feelings; she is a thoroughly good egg amongst lots of addled ones. Apart from being weirdly funny and entertaining; there is quite often a morality tale hidden somewhere. I can watch it any time.

This is the 2nd Canon printer I've owned. I ruined the print heads on the first printer by using cheaper non-Canon ink cartridges. The new printer has been working fine with the proper Canon ink cartridges in it. They are not cheap, but shopping around, and multi buying helps. Have not had problems with clogging either. Would recommend these, but do shop around ! My pal has just bought a Laser Printer, which is much cheaper on ink; but only prints black.Worth considering ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy as the first series, 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This character is like the most eccentric, funny, bonkers uncle you have ever had. Heard him on Radio 4 originally; but I personally prefer the TV version of the character; probably because he is visual too.. That said, this is the sort of CD you want on when you are feeling a bit low, or driving on a long boring journey, as the miles will wizz by in fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous vocal harmonies with prog rock, 17 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blomljud (Audio CD)
this is good value, as it's a double album. That said, if you like progressive rock that has harmonies in the vocals, this is for you. Heard it, loved it, bought it; now my brother-in-law also has it, and he is a big Yes/Genesis/Pink Floyd etc. fan. These guys can play their instruments well, and although some tracks are quite long, they keep your ear interested. Thinking of getting more albums by them.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for long journeys, 18 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a lower back (disk bulge and arthritis) problem, and having this at my back when driving is very comfortable, especially on long journeys. It is shaped to fit into the small of the back, and gives medium spongy support. I don't need to use the straps, as it just sits against the rear of the driving seat. Good value for the price, and helps make my poor back more comfy.
