5.0 out of 5 stars The highlight of the series. Don't miss it., Aug. 15 2002
This review is from: Babylon 5 Volume 1.12 (VHS Tape)
What can one say for a Hugo winner episode? Apart for the great directing, acting and special effects, the "Coming of the Shadows" triggers the series of events that will lead the heroes to the Shadow War. Bringing in mind an Ancient Greek Tragedy, where the characters are driven by powers beyond their will, this episode evolves around Centauri Emperor Tourchan. A really tragic figure, he comes to B5 to ask forgiveness for old sins. But those sins drug him down and he dies before he has the chance to save his people's future. Mollari, a puppet of his Dark allies, makes sure of that. Meanwhile, G'car tries to act honourably, whatever that may cost. And in the heart of the events the Vorlon ambassador foretells the End: "In fire." After the first superb episode, it's hard to evaluate on "Gropos". This episode is not bad, however, compared to the previous one may seem boring. This is hardly the case. It is a decent story of good men and women who went to their deaths in a faraway planet, for reasons they may never know. In the meantime, the station has the chance to get armed for the war at hand and Dr. Franklin confronts his father. The highlight of the series. Don't miss it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vital for every pet owner/guardian., Aug. 15 2002
This is probably the best homeopathic veterinary book for pet owners/guardians in the market.
In the first part, Dr. Hamilton explains the basics of homeopathy and how the rules apply to home caring for a sick animal. He even gives instructions on how to medicate your animal, since the administration of homeopathic remedies differs from allopathic ones.
The second part is a detailed and easy to follow Repertory, meaning that conditions by system are presented and remedies are suggested according to symptoms. This is followed by special conditions, such as pre surgery and after surgery care, heat-stroke etc. The section ends with a Materia Medica adapted to the animal symptoms.
This book has been a great resource for my cats. It does not replace the veterinary care of a trained homeopath, but it can be vital in cases of emergency. I used it at least on two occasions with my younger cats, and the both recovered in a matter of hours. One of them, my younger kitty had been ill for months, and both my homeopath and my allo vet had not been able to help him. Fed up by the failed attempts, I went through the pages of this book, until I stumbled on a remedy that seemed to fit perfectly. And it worked! My boy has been healthy ever since.
Now I keep it close to my bed for easy access.

Book of Spells II
Book of Spells II

4.0 out of 5 stars A cute little book., April 9 2002
This review is from: Book of Spells II (Hardcover)
I liked this book.
OK, so it's not in depth study of the craft. But it's fun to read, it has a beautiful layout, it is filled with very lovely pictures and the spells are easier than those in the first book.
The spells that contains are elemental spell, zodiac sign spells and kitchen spells. Especially this last section is great! The ingredients used are every day materials and common herbs, and so far they seem to work.
Furthermore, it would make a great present for your pagan friend.

Straight from the Horse's Mouth: How to Talk to Animals and Get Answers
Straight from the Horse's Mouth: How to Talk to Animals and Get Answers
by Amelia Kinkade
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A captivating book, April 4 2002
If you love animals, this book will be vital to you.
It will make you laugh. It will make you cry. But, most of all, it will teach you how to communicate with your beloved animals as well as with wild ones.
In this book, Amelia unfolds her journey into the world of animal communication. You'll read the story of her first encounter with an animal communicator and how this incident change her life. It took no magic wands to open the door for her. And it will take nothing more for you.
In her book the various levels of animal communication are divided in chapters: Of feeling, of seeing, of hearing and of communicating across the borders of time and space. Of all the books that deal with this subject, this is the one that finally made it clear. By dealing with each kind of communication separately, it's easy for the novice to understand what it's all about. Moreover, in each chapter you will be provided with exercises/meditations to help you do it yourself. And, believe me, you could never believe how easy it is.
Also, the book is filled with anecdotes and incidents from Amelia's experience. And it includes the most heart-felt prayer to Shekmet I've ever read. No matter what your faith is, this little prayer will make you weep.
This book has been a key to a greater world for me. It can work the same for you too.

American Exorcism: Expelling Demons in the Land of Plenty
American Exorcism: Expelling Demons in the Land of Plenty

3.0 out of 5 stars rrright..., April 4 2002
got this book because I'm interested in the subject of demonology and exorcism. The book is very promising at first, and it keeps you wanting to turn the pages. But after a while, it gets really tiring. The listing of so many facts and names make it hard to follow.
I understand that research and documenting is essential to such kinds of works, but after a while the average reader will get bored. Especially since the facts are limited to the US.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining., April 2 2002
This review is from: The Tribe of Tiger (Paperback)
This book is filled with very interesting information on our feline friends. It starts from the prehestoric age and moves on to the modern day cats. It provides a lot of info on the big, domestic felines as well as their big wild cousins.
But apart from a very detailed and documented journey into the feline world, this book is filled with anectodes that will make you laugh, will make you sad and will make you think.
And one thing is certain: After having read this book, you'll never look the same way at your cat.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cute little book with Garfield., Feb. 19 2002
This is not the usual comic strip book with our beloved fat cat. However, no real Garfield fan should be without it. In here you can read the story of the man behind the cat, see how Garfield came to life, enjoy classic moments with the fat cat in a book that is a joy to go through.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you have pets, you'll need this book., Feb. 7 2002
This book is a pet guardian's bible. It provides invaluable info on nutrition, health care, homeopathic and herbal remedies and cases of emergency. It really paid off for me when my kitten had an infection in August 2001, the vets of my area were all on vacation and I was desperate. And following the info on this book, I chose a homeopathic remedy (with fingers crossed). My boy was fine in a matter of hours.
Now I keep it close to my bed for fast access.

5.0 out of 5 stars A captivating book, Jan. 31 2002
This is a very enjoyable book, well worth its money.
It will make you cry, it will make you laugh, it will make you think and it can help you start communicating with your animal friend.
This book has many stories from various professional animal communicators. Stories of lost and hurting animals, of troubled and happy ones. What never seizes to amaze me is the capacity of those creatures to love. While their owners/guardians are troubled by guilt, the animals rarely hold bad feelings about them.
The greater part of the book is consumed on these stories. However, the last chapter is a "How to" guide, compiled of exercises and techniques of various professionals. Some are easy, some are impossible, but most of them have results. The info on many animal communicators (phone number, web site etc) are also listed there.
In the US there are workshops on animal communication. However, if you are unable to attend one, this book is a good place to start.

The Fatima Secret
The Fatima Secret

Edition: Mass Market Paperback
Price: CDN$ 9.89

1.0 out of 5 stars A dissapoinment., Jan. 31 2002
This book deals with the alleged secrets revealed to three Portuguese children by Virgin Mary.
From the beginning, the book's purpose is obvious: God sends a message that Communists are evil and if the world does not convert to Catholicism and bow before the Pope we are doomed. Communists, Freemasons and non Catholic population will burn in Hell by a God who demands of children to inflict pain on themselves by tying strings tightly on their limbs.
This book has been a HUGE waste of both time and money. Open minded people should look elsewhere for a good read. I only wish I knew this before buying it.
