Wimbledon Classic Match: Federer vs Sampras <b>DVD</b> ~ Pete Sampras/Roger Federer
Wimbledon Classic Match: Federer vs Sampras DVD ~ Pete Sampras/Roger Federer
This match was fantastic. It was exciting, suspenseful and of course a celebration for SPOILER ALERT .........stop reading if you do not want to know the winner..........although I cannot imagine anyone buying this and not knowing the outcome since it was so many years ago. Anyway if you're a Federer fan of course he wins and since it's early in his career it's a powerful, wonderful moment. There is one thing that did disappoint me though and that is due to the generic labelling on the DVD I somehow got the impression it was the Wimbledon Finals and so at the end I was waiting for speeches and trophies etc. and I couldn't understand why that stuff would be missing.

MAGIC ISLAND: The Fictions of L.M. Montgomery by Elizabeth Waterston
5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Fantastic!, July 4 2014

Chloe Lighting CH2825DB18-FL3 Tiffany-style Dragon&hellip by Chloe Lighting
This floor lamp was beautiful however there was a crack in the corner of one of the pieces of glass and so I returned it. In terms of set up, it was easy enough except there was a lot of excess cord. I ended up doubling it over and stuffing it into the stem. Also the wings of the dragonflies at the bottom edges of the shade seemed plastic like (I doubt they could be), but they were resting over the glass, not made up of many little pieces of glass as I had assumed when viewing the picture. The lamp itself is lovely with regard to colour/light output and the stem and base are elegant and not too ostentatious. I would have definitely kept it if the shade was not broken.
