PRODUCT The Fisher Price Sparkling Symphony gym is an excellent toy apparatus to keep any child entertained. It's bright colours, range of music tones and play toys mean that it will give you a break and your child some entertainment. Lying on your back can get boring even for babies. This gym will keep even the most active of child entertained. SUITABILITY It's suitable for children over 3 months old, and even when they stop lying on their backs they can play with it sitting up. So, you will get your money worth out of it. The good thing about this toy is that it's got different functions as your child grows. For newborns they have extended play of music and lights. Newborns love music and this has got some excellent relaxing music. For older babies, they can activate single songs and light patters by pressing things on the gym like the sun, moon or start. And for toddlers, babies can press keys to hear music notes or sound effects. The gym is easy to assemble and it can be folded up just as easily to save storage space. It's looks really attractive, with a range of bright bold colours, you can even start teaching your baby the colours. The gym features music from Mozart and Beethoven and others and has five children songs and a variety of sound effects. This gym is certainly a cut above the rest. I had bought my neice a play gym from Argos, but this one from Fisher Price is much better. The good thing is that it's very durable and it will last you a long time. My nephew has used is quite a lot but it still looks brand new. A good tip..... Use the baby gym when babies get restless but don't over use it otherwise they will get bored of it. Twenty minutes at a time is more than enought. If you can't put your baby to sleep the Beethoven music is really good and can really help. PRICE The Fisher Price Sparkling Symphony gym costs £24.99 which is considerably more than the Argos play gym. But you do get more for your money, the range of music is excellent, the bright colours together with the extendable toys make this a really good apparatus for babies.
Yesterday night watching Iraq?s capital city being blown apart with after wave of bombs landing. I sat there in horror watching the live pictures unfold the same way I had sat there in horror watching the second plane crash into the Twin Towers. It came to be then, how ?two wrongs can?t make a right?. If someone does wrong to you, you don?t do wrong to them. Surely, not!. This war is pointless. I?m not anti-American and you don?t have to be Anti-American to be anti-war. This isn?t a war, it?s a massacre. It?s a destruction of a country and for what. To finish a job that Bush?s Dad didn?t at the end of the Gulf War. If Iraq have got these chemical and biological weapons of mass destruction then surely they will use them. The fact is they haven?t and the American?s know it and that?s why they are attacking them. Let them go to Korea, they know they have nuclear weapons and instead say ?diplomacy? is the key. The first thing the armies did was secure the oil pipe fields and that is the simple reason behind the war. OIL. By going to war, American and Britain have undermined the United Nations. There total disregard for the UN disgusts me. It makes me mad and poses the question ?who do American think they are?. I am ashamed that Tony Blair is so blinded by his loyalty to Bush that he can?t see the truth, the injustice of the war. To Bush this is all a big game. This so called war is just another show of America?s bully tactics and they will only serve to re-inforce the hatred many feel towards them. If everytime the IRA planted a bomb in our shopping centres, we didn?t bomb them did we?. The world should unite to oust Bush before he destroys the world. The hypocritical nature of Bush?s administration is for all to see. He can go to war, destroy the UN in the process for their means whilst at the same time refuse to sign treaties to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. This from a president who was elected all too controversially. I say, STOP THE WAR, and STOP THE WAR NOW!!!!! They say it will be worth it in the long run when the Iraqi people are liberated. But, I don?t believe in collateral damage. An Iraqi life is just as important as an American life. The only victor will be Bush when he gets his oil. Watching Fox News made me sick. They seemed to think it's all a big joke. They forget that it's real life, that there are people under them bombs like you and me. If the war should continue then we should allow Iraqi refugees to come to this country and to all the allied country, since it's their bombs that are going to displace them. I bet that will make people angry. So let any Iraqi displaced by the war come!
I was over at a friends house when she offered my some Lindt chocolate. I hadn't tried this chocolate before so you could say it was whole new experience and one that I really enjoyed. Brief History...... The Lindt & Sprüngli chocolate company originated as a small, father and son Zürich chocolate shop in 1845. From those roots grew the Lindt tradition in Swiss chocolate of the finest quality. As the company grew, Lindt chocolate became well known in Europe. Today, Lindt chocolate is an international company that is famous around the world. Taste...... Having tried the milk chocolate at my friends I thought it was excellent. As chocolate goes it was as good any that I have previously tried. So I decided to purchase the Lindt dark chocolate which again equally as fantastic. The taste was mouth-watering. It seemed to melt in your mouth with ease. It certainly went down well, as the box was finished quite quickly. Packs of Lindt now don't last long in our household. Once a piece has been snapped off, soon the bar is gone. If you have a sweet tooth then you should definitely treat it to some Lindt chocolate. It may now be so good for your waistline but it's excellent for treating yourself. You can get Lindt chocolate easter eggs, individually packed truffles that come in a box of 22. Try the Lindt Lindo chocolates they are really good and perfect to eat in front of a good film. Overall I love Lindt chocolate and my Mum buys it me everytime she goes shopping!. If like me you like chocolate then you should try Lindt, because I'm sure you will approve.
If like you like a good chewing gum then let me point you in the direction of Wringley?s Extra Thin Ice. It?s excellent gum as well as that it gives you cool Ice breath. The Wrigley?s brand is renouned, Wrigley?s Extra Thin Ice is relatively new. It?s different but in my opinion just as good. PACKAGING It comes in a tiny pack which you can easily carry around. Inside the pack you get tiny little blue pieces. On the packaging it says ?Extra? (which is in white) and then ?Thin Ice? in blue and yellow. It looks quite good. COST Unlike the Wrigley chewing gum which costs just 30p, these cost slightly more at 80p. However, you do get more for your money. A gum and a breath freshner. The cool Ice taste is also worth paying that extra for. You get 24 pieces inside so you do get more than the standard seven sticks. TASTE I like the way they leave a tingly feeling on your tongue. It?s definitely Icy and refreshing. I like the peppermint taste, and it leave a good taste in your mouth. DRAWBACK Be warned your mouth will be turned blue. Some kids however love a blue mouth and tongue!!! OVERALL I have tried this product a few times and they are worth buying. But, for somebody who just likes some gum then it may be best to stick to the Wrigley?s stick.
For anyone who isn?t entitled to free Dental care. Here are some tips especially if you are a student. First, I?ve been having a lot of trouble with my tooth. It has chipped a while a go but only recently it started to hurt quite a lot especially at night time. The pain was awful as you can imagine. After a week or so I decided that it was time for me to go to see the dentist. My last visit was some six years a go. So, I had to start from scratch. Luckily, there were five or six local ones all of which were private none were NHS. The first thing I found was the cost was huge. As a student there was no way I could afford such high costs. Nevertheless, I paid a £20 initial fee and went to see the dentist. As I waited for an X-ray result the woman at the reception passed me a piece of paper. Detailing the cost. My mouth nearly fell off. It said that my dental care, three visits would cost me £390. I was blown away. Imagining what I could do with £390 I was quite shocked. My pain was awful but surely it couldn?t cost so much. So I decided to visit some NHS dentists further a field. Luckily I found a dentist was going to do all my dental care which included, three X-rays, one tooth being removed, and polishing for £70. It was much affordable price. Although, my treatment took a month from start to finish, it was affordable and with the help of medication I was able to manage the pain. So my first advice is that if you are going to pay stay away from private dental care, if you are going to pay then pay at a NHS dentist they are much cheaper. Another advice would be try not to leave it to long before you visit your dentist. If I had visited my dentist regularly I could have saved myself a tooth! Also shop around, some places are much more cheaper than other. Don?t start any treatment before a full cost list otherwise you could start something you might be unable to afford to finish.
Want to buy a present that won?t cost you an arm and leg then try the Urban Decay make-up case. It contains two lipsticks, two lipglunks, a glitter body haze and four eye shadows. It?s suitable for teenagers especially since the nice bright eye shadow colours will look really good for a nice night out. However, it?s also suitable for someone older but I would say that it lacks the class for someone a bit older and someone who knows there stuff. The glitter is really good and id you like the sparkles then you will like this. Add it to the eye shadow and you can get a really great look. The lipsticks are also really good. They are easy to apply and once you apply you do not need to apply again for a good couple of hours. If you want to go out in the evening then its good to wear however I wouldn?t recommend wearing it all day long since you will keep on need to reapplying for the desired results. You also get two brush/applicators with the pack however be careful because the ends can easily come off. PACKAGING The face case comes in good packaging however you will have to wrap it up to give it that glamour result. The Urban decay face case costs £7.99 and is good value for money. However, if like me you are used to something abit more classy then you may think that you could do much better. But, if you have some teenage friends, cousins or daughters then I am sure this will go down as a treat. You can buy this product from Boots.
I was looking at the dooyoo internet sites when I came across faceparty.com The reviews on it seemed good so I decided to go and have a look. Faceparty.com is a website with over 904 104 members online. It?s a site where you can have lots of fun and meet people of similar interests. You can create your own free profile, add a picture and let other people leave comments or rate your page. You can use the Party chat to meet friends, have chat with people via your mobile without revealing your mobile number. You can even get invited to parties hosted by the site managers. There?s the facts about the site??now the truth. It?s extremely slow to navigate and unless you are a geek and can?t make friends in the real world. This site isn?t for you. It looks so amateurish. Even the décor of the site reminds me of something babyish. The profile pages are not very good. If you bother to wait five minutes for three or four sentence to load up, it?s not worth bothering with. As for the meet people through the site. Unless you want to meet some perverted people I?d also advise staying away from both the SMS and chatroom. Regulation is poor and the chat is filth. Any good points?. NO. Even the name of the site doesn?t match the contact. It?s hardly a party! I?m sorry this opinion is brief but there?s not much to say about this site. I wouldn?t bother wasting your time signing up to become a member. I can see no benefits to the site.

Tone it up and it looks cool, classy and perfect a night out. Or if you want you can tone it done to achieve that sophisticated look. SHADES You can get Urban decay in four colours.

Looks classy and doesn't disappoint. OVERALL There's a lot of eyeshadows on the market. It can be difficult choosing which one to buy. Urban decay eyeshadow will add glamour to your eyes. It's good on your skin and won't irratate. Thumbs up from me.
Grain Bar If you don?t have time to have breakfast in the morning or like me you are not a breakfast person. Then try Kellogs Nutri-Grain Bar. It?s nothing heavy and won?t make your stomach churn. If I have something to eat in the morning I just can?t stomach it. That was until I found Kellogs Nutri-Grain Bar. It?s light, full with all the nutrition?s that you need and most importantly it won?t make your stomach churn. There?s a range of bars to chose from. From fruit filled middles, to bars with currants, oats and even apples. You can buy them individually from supermarkets or you can buy them in a multi pack. I personally like to buy the multi-pack for £1.97 since you will get enough Kellogs Nutri Grain Bars to last you for a full week. They are also advisable to eat as part of a low calorie diet since they only contain 140 calories. Taste?. They actually taste very nice. They are quite sweet and despite the rugged brown appearance of the bar they taste really nice especially the middle part. It?s perfect to put in your bag and eat it when your hungry. They are great hunger fillers. They come in nice packaging and I would recommend them to anyone. You don?t have to eat them in the morning, you can eat them when you feel hungry or if you are on the move and you can?t find anything else to eat. They are available from most newsagents, supermarkets and co-ops. There?s often a buy two get one free offer on at Superdrugs. If you haven?t tried on then I would definitely recommend it because they are very nice. Overall, Kellogs Nutri-Grain Bar are tasty snacks to eat. They are just the right size to fill you up and it means that your stomach will no longer be making the hunger noises. For 30p bar they are extremely good value.

PRODUCT This is an extremely luxurious perfume. The name suggests a bit of mystery, supernatural and the perfume doesn?t disappoint. It got this kind of mysterious smell to it. Something you think you have smelt before but in fact you haven?t or have you? It?s a perfume that I haven?t really heard of but it?s one that will match any perfume bottle that you have. In other words, it won?t disappoint. Made by Scannon Ghost is one a range so if you like this perfume there?s plenty more from where this came. SCENT The scent is quite floral and quite natural. It smells quite summery, that nice summer flowery smell you get. It?s quite musky but better than that. It?s actually quite difficult to put in words what it smells nice but I would say a cross between Jean Paul Gaultier?s and Ralph Lauren. The scent isn?t very strong and won?t over power you. PACKAGING It comes in a really well designed transparent bottle. It?s a thin vase like shaped bottle and looks very good. It would make an excellent gift, it looks very expensive and would shine up any dressing table. It?s a blue bottle and has the word Ghost written in silver, which adds a bit of class to the perfume. AVAILABILITY It?s actually quite difficult to get hold off. I did manage to get a bottle from House of Fraser but I am told that if you look in good perfume shops you can actually get hold of a bottle. There are other fragrances from the Ghost collection which you may want to try like Ambush, Generation or Iceberg. PRICE You can get a bottle (medium sized) for £25 which is good value. It lasts quite a long time and would make an excellent gift. I recently purchased a bottle for my Mum and she loved it. OVERALL This is a good perfume. It?s not one that I would have bought as there are so many to chose from these days but it?s certainly one that I would recommend.
Arguably the greatest leg-spin bowler in Cricket history. But, another unavoidable fact. A drug cheat. It may seem cruel, bland even but the so often the truth is. Look at Linford Christie he was an exceptional 100m sprinter but surely anyone with half a bit of brains can figure it out. Afterall, how many 35+ do you know who can run 100m under ten seconds. None, exactly. However, with Shane Warne it was different. He was true, genuine class. The first bowl that he bowled against England, he bowled Mike Gatting. It was pure genius as the ball turned and deceived even a great batsmen like Gatting. It was start of a terrific and exciting career for Shane Warne. And of course he didn?t disappoint becoming Australians leading wicket taker. He became a legend in his own right. So, he failing a drug test makes it even harder to take. I wonder why?. Surely, he doesn?t need them. Yes, he?s had his shoulder injury and his form has been affected. But, surely not. But, then again who knows. Maybe yes. Afterall it was he and Steve Waugh who got a fine and a good telling off for betting on matched. The truth is no-one knows. One thing they (they I mean the drug cheats) have in common is that they all protest their innocence. No-one ever admits fault so for us the public we never know who to believe. Was it a genuine mistake, maybe it was maybe it wasn?t but his reputation will be forever tainted. The lesson for anyone cricket lover or fan of sports is that drugs can wreck careers. Shane Warne, will miss out in playing in the World Cup. His probably last opportunity to show what he could do on the world stage. He will miss the opportunity to show that he still can do it on the top level. If the truth is that his Mum gave him so dietary supplements then Warne should have known better than to take any supplements before checking with the team doctors. But, whatever the case, whatever the story the World Cup will be a lesser place without Warne. A truly brilliant spin bowler. I hope his name is cleared for crickets sake more than anything.

Having watched Training Day on the weekend. Last night my brother went and bought the DVD. Please read my last op for an opinion on the film. Just to recap it stars Denzel Washington and Ethan Hawke who work together. Denzel Washington takes Hawke on a Training Day. Ethan Hake plays Jake and Denzel plays Harris. Of course, it?s a very eventual day with a few twists and turns in the plot. Overall, it?s a good film. Watching it on DVD I thought it slightly better. You certainly get quite a few extra?s. There?s an alternative ending to the film-although it?s not that different it?s quite good to say what other ending they had in the pipeline. Also there are some extra scenes, some of which haven?t been used in the film. Again, it makes good viewing. I like some of the scenes with some really gritty action in it. If you have watched the film, the DVD will make a lot more sense and more interesting viewing because you can piece things together. You also get about a fifteen minute commentary on the making of the film, the location etc. If you like facts and figures then this will interest you. You get the soundtracks to the film and some extra rap music which lasts about four to five minutes. For £7.50 you buy the ?Training Day? DVD with the following features: Commentary by director Antoine Fuqua Theatrical trailer(s) Never-before-seen footage Alternate ending Behind-the-scenes documentary 2 Music videos: Nelly's "#1" and Pharoahe Monch's "Got You" Widescreen anamorphic format Overall, the DVD is a great acquisition if you like the film. If you do like the film then the DVD will make a lot of sense and make interesting viewing. My brother liked it more than me which may suggest he liked the film more----which is true, he did.
I watched this film on Saturday night on Sky Box office. It lasts just under two hours and is a certificate 18. It stars Denzel Washington as Alonzo Harris and Ethan Hawke as Jake Hoyt The plot revolves around Ethan Hawke?s first day at work as an undercover cop. To what seems as Denzel Washington showing the ropes to Hawke is actually a very clever plot that only gets revealed later on. The first twenty minutes are quite uninspiring really. The two drive round and I did think to myself at this stage that this wasn?t going to be a film that I was going to particularly like. Then, suddenly the film bursts into action when Ethan Hawke spots two men trying to rape a girl. He gets into a fight with them and saves the girl. As she runs off he picks up her pass. This unknowing to him will actually save his life later on. Meanwhile, Denzel Washington manages to persuade Ethan Hawke to take some drugs. A clever ploy by him since now he has drugs in his blood and he will cleverly manipulate this later on to get Ethan Hawke to do what he wants. Denzel Washington goes around town to what seems to the audience as showing Hawke the ropes but in fact he is collecting cash since he need money to pay off some people who will kill him by mid night if he doesn?t. His plot seems to be working perfectly. As he gets an arrest warrant, plots the perfect arrest and finds a substantial amount of money-of which of course he keeps from himself so he can pay his debt off. However, Hawke his unimpressed. He joined the police to catch criminals not to become one. However, he?s persuaded by Denzel Washington to go along with things because it?s the only way to catch the proper criminals. Denzel?s killed at this moment and made it look like it was a self-defence shooting. He even shoots a cop twice to make it look real. And Hawke is told to say that he shot the guy. However, Hawke is not so impressed. However, wh en Denzel Washington leaves Hawke in the company of some Mexicans, the end looks near for Hawke. They are just about to kill him when they see the photo of the girl he earlier saved from being raped in Hawke?s pocket. Yes, it?s a small world and guess what she?s the niece of one the guy?s who?s trying to kill Hawke. So he rings her up, she confirms that a ?scruffy white guy? saved her. And guess what he?s saved. Now, Hawke goes after Denzel Washington. He realises the trouble that he?s in and how he stole the money to pay his debt for killing a Russian. Not to impressed that his so called friend left him nearly to die. He goes after him, steals the money and despite Denzel?s Washington?s plea from the help of the ?black neighbourhood? they are not willing to help. They are sick of him to be frank. The end has come for Denzel and he is gunned down. At this point I looked away. The Training Day was over and so was the film. My verdict?.. The acting was good. Both actors played the role well. Denzel Washington was excellent and different from the normal roles he plays. I liked the way he said ?Even King Kong hasn?t got anything on me?. But, the irony was that despite all his awareness he is gunned down at the end. The storyline is weak in the beginning, it takes half an hour just to get going. But, when you watch the film to the end you can then understand why. So, if you feel tempted to leave in the first quarter don?t there?s much more to come. It?s got quite a bit of violence and contains some bad language. On the whole this is a good film. A good storyline with two very good main actors. A bit of a boyish film but one that females won?t dislike either.
