In My Own Words:
The old version of this was absurdly out of date! Let me scratch my head and think of something more apposite to the age, and in the meantime I hope you enjoy my reviews and perhaps discover something that may go on to become a life-long enthusiasm for you.

Paul McCartney: Back in the U.S. DVD ~ Paul McCartney
Please,please me..? Yeah,yeah,yeah !! And you can please,please yourself immeasurably by buying this superb DVD archive of Sir Paul's sell-out 2002 US tour.
I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a music concert so much and I would consider this essential viewing and listening,not just for die-hard Beatles and "Macca" fans,but for anyone who is up for entertainment on a grand and damn near overwhelming fashion.
The indefatigable McCartney took to the road again at the age of 60 and with a cracking quartet of young musicians (love that "percussion power-house" of a drummer that is Abe Laboriel,JR.) belts out some fabulous new incarnations of Beatles and Wings classics.The… Read more

Pilgrim Prayers: The Official Vatican Prayerbook f&hellip by Vatican Central Committee for the Jubilee
Ok,I'm almost two years late with my review of this splendid little book,as it was ostensibly intended as a devotional,literary companion for those folks who were lucky enough to have travelled to the eternal city during the Jubilee year of 2000.I never made the pilgrimage myself but made sure to snap up this book as well as the equally desirable and rewarding "Pilgrims in Rome" as soon as they hit the shelves of my local bookshop.
To be sure,a lot of the content of the former especially,is tied chronologically into the Jubilee "Stations of prayer" that took place at the major basilicas,churches and catacombs.Yet,much else within it's 250 odd pages is well worth… Read more
