The Song of Bernadette [DVD] [1943]
The Song of Bernadette [DVD] [1943]
Dvd ~ Jennifer Jones
Offered by Discs4all
Price: £3.91

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for all those who can't accept miracles., 30 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To see this film was inspirational. As with most miracles hard to accept -but it actually happened so one has to believe! It is difficult to say more as it would be stepping on too many religious toes!


The Darcys of Pemberley: The Continuing Story of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
The Darcys of Pemberley: The Continuing Story of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice
by Shannon Winslow
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A truly excellent follow up to Jane Austen's original., 24 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This a truly delightful book. A must for all Lovers of Jane Austen. It is for all those who have come to the end of Pride and prejudice and suffer the frustration of wondering what happens next! Shannon Winslow has the ability to write just as Jane Austen did 250 years ago. as she uses many of the "one offs" used by Jane - and these work really well.
Shannon is to be congratulated and I can see no reason why this should not, one day, rank as a classic in it's own right.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! a viable all in one combination., 4 Feb. 2016
One of the aims of many - if not most photographers is to have an all embracing combination of lens and body providing both portability, covenience and performance. I thought I had found this by combining the Mk 1 version of the 14 - 140 with a GH3 body. Performance wise I was right, portability wise, definitely not so! However, I really believe that, at last, I have come up with the best answer I am likely to find which is in the form of a kit comprising the much lighter Mk 2 model with the G7 body. This is a very powerful combination. One which, I feel is very much to be recommended. It is perfectly balanced and shares the excellent characteristics both of this lens and of the latest of the Panasonic G series bodies. Both elements are vital but after all,l it is the lens which forms the image and few using this one will have any cause for disappointment.

Price: £299.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharpness is excellent at all lengths, 23 Jan. 2016
This is one of those lenses which underlines the value of the micro 4/3 system. In conjunction with a Panasonic GH3 the results are superb. I believe that for 99.999% of photographers nothing heavier for 350 mm (Eqiv) is needed. Sharpness is excellent at all lengths, including the far distance
My kit is the 14-45 3.5 -5.6 and the 45-175.This covers all my expected photographic needs

2.0 out of 5 stars These shoes underline the need for half sizes., 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These shoes, although well made were too big. It's a pity that half sizes aren't available. My size is 8.5 Also the leather was too unyielding to be comfortable.
A shame because the overall style was exactly what I was looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars A musical Tour de Force, 12 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Up until now, Solomon's playing of the "32" has been the yardstick for me. Paul Lewis's playing is certainly his equal and in some cases eclipses him. This was true of my recent trial hearing, over a period of of the Hammerklavier as performed by both. Lewis's performance brought out nuances, totally true to the score, which seemed to be missing from Solomon's performance. Lewis's playing in opus 111 is also sublime. I feel that with performance of this standard for these two the rest - although beautifully played, may be safely taken for granted!
