  • cordyceps - excellent adviceMy grandfather spoke fondly of this book, and while it was many years before I would lay hands on a copy, I learned a great deal from his vivid stories, and longed to put those lessons into practice.

    When the day came that I was crossing a meadow and an enormous, mean-looking Devon Longwool ram started staring me down I knew exactly what to do. The instant he launched himself at me I hauled out my flare gun and sent up a red starburst. You should have seen the look on that ram's face as he turned tail and bolted! A few days later I was crossing the same meadow and no fewer than three monstrous Spanish Merinos jumped me, and it just had to be the day I left my flare gun at home! Thinking fast, I whipped off my scarf and semaphored a warning. While they stood there blinking, I reversed course and fled with the wind at my stern. For a tense moment I feared capsizing, then I was safely over the fence.

    Imagine my surprise, then, when I received a copy of Mr. Trimmer's book as a gift. What were all these pictures of oil tankers and freighters doing there? And not a single word about Hampshires, Pomeranian Coarsewools or Tyrolean Mountains. The light slowly dawned on me: could this all be a big misunderstanding owing to my grandfather's thick Slovenian accent? I had always put down his talk of "sheeps" as a quaint solecism. Now it seems so obvious, since my grandfather was a lobster fisherman by trade, and I never could figure out how he came by such an intimate knowledge of sheep herding.

    Well, let's just say that Mr. Trimmer's advice comes in equally handy when trying to avoid huge livestock and large oceangoing vessels. Five stars for a well-written guide.
  • Pia S "Pia S" - Makes waiting so much easierI got this after my old kindle died and I really liked it as long as I had it. Only I did not have it for very long as my daughter saw it and she loved it so I ended up giving it to her. My daughter is 12 years old and love to watch movies, play games etc on this kindle. It is a great size for her, big enough that she can see her movies and games but not to big to bring with her. This has been great going on trips in the car, visiting friends or waiting at the doctors office, she can bring it with her and there is no complaining because she has to wait. Also if we want to just have a nice quiet time together and read a book its right there.
