having ordered and owned my Wii fit for a few weeks now i can safely say I've explored every activity and application available to me so far, except of course the games which must be unlocked. Wii Fit is a easy way to make getting fit and improving balance fun. Which continues as the more games and activities you play the more you unlock and of course the more ft you become. As like most Wii games it is simple to use and suitable for all ages, younger children for the fun of hula hooping and experimenting in yoga, to adults who are serious about weight loss and getting fit but want to do it the fun way. Wii fit makes it all very easy with a built in body test that weighs and works out your bmi for you while updating your improved balance. All in all Wii fit is a worthy personal trainer as it helps set goals and provides simple but fun ways for you to achieve them.
I received my 120 GB ipod classic for christmas 2008. I was my 5th ipod and compared to other ipod models is definitely the most hard wearing and durable. Given that is doesn't have all the fancy games and applications of the iphone and itouch, it has everything it needs. A small amount of games, calender, contacts list and places to store photo's and videos and a few other basic apps. This ipod is really just about the music with 120 GB of space. I have no complaints about this ipod whatsoever and would say it is the ipod for people who just want to listen to a lot of music! Saying this ipods do have a tendency to be temperamental and i have experienced this with older models such as the mini and second generation nano, however the ipod classic has given my no trouble and has worked smoothly in the 7 months i have been in possession of it, bearing in mind it gets a lot of use and wear and tear, in the bottom of my bag. I would definitely purchase another classic above a touch, as for me it as all about the music.
I've always been a fan of Jodi Picoult since I first read The Pact. I have followed her new releases every year and was full of anticipation when I saw Handle with Care in my local book shop. The story follows an American family whose youngest daughter suffers with Osteogenesis Imperfecta which makes her bones extremely brittle. With medical bills piling up Charlotte O'Keefe takes drastic measures to provide for her ill daughter and the rest of her family. I found Handle with care both gripping and emotional especially towards the tragic end of the book. It deals with the tragedy of brittle bone disease very carefully and is sure to include medical information that is not confusing to the reader. Jodi Picoult is and exquisite author and Handle with care is not a let down to the high standard set by her previous books, in fact in raises the bench mark. A must read.
