Yes, the hits are all here, but Ronan Keating's Destination Wembley must also be one of the most crisply produced live concert releases ever. The staging is superb--a kind of cross between the deck of an aircraft carrier and a Swiss cheese, in which the members of his high-powered backing band nestle in individual circular pits--and the lighting and camerawork are of the highest order. Ronan himself is a consummate showman, even to the extent of flying out over the audience on wires, Peter Pan fashion, towards the end of the show--and no, he doesn't look silly either, unlike Garth Brooks, who did it with his hat on. Ronan Keating is, of course, more your all-round entertainer than a singer, so much of his material isn't too demanding--he actually lets himself be upstaged by one of his own backing singers when they do a duet--but he shows willing by tackling some cover versions for the benefit of the mums and dads in the audience. One is Van Morrison's "Brown-Eyed Girl", an improbable nod to another of Ireland's musical exports; another is Elvis's "In the Ghetto". That's not why his ecstatic audience came, though. They want, and get, "Life is a Rollercoaster", "The Long Goodbye" and so on, all of which he delivers with knobs on (the flying-on-wires episode is one of the most restrained, really). Had there been a stretch of water between Ronan and his audience, he'd probably have walked. This is an essential purchase for fans. On the DVD: Destination Wembley comes with Dolby 5.1 surround and is presented in 4:3 aspect. The disc has a good documentary about the work involved in touring Ronan's monster show, plus a photo gallery and Web link. However, the extras menu has a rather strange layout which only shows one item at a time, so be prepared to skip through several screens using your cursor keys to find all the options. --Roger Thomas
Advantages: Food is fresher, nice 'market' layout, lovely cafe and clean store Disadvantages: Can be more pricey than other supermarkets.
...branded products and must say they're very good. The Morrisons own frozen Cauliflower cheese was one product in paticular that I bought to try and was very pleased with as for just £1 it is absolutely lovely.
One of the good things about shopping at Morrisons is the checkouts. There are always plenty of staff operating the tills so the queues are never really bad and the staff are always friendly...
Advantages: interesting, engaging, relentless, lack of closure Disadvantages: difficult to read at points, not the best reading experience
...A Child of the Jago was one of the books I had to read for a literature/history module last year at university, and to be honest I didn't really know what to expect. I'd never read any Morrison before and, given that the topic of Victorian London is one of my favourite things to read about, I didn't know how it would compare to the work I had already read. To be honest, I still don't know exactly...
...with crackers, cottage cheese with salad, cottage cheese with jacket potato, cottage cheese with cottage cheese. I love the stuff.
My favourite favourite has to be the one with pineapple in it tho. I've tried most of the other flavours and this one comes out top all the time.
I've bought it from most of the supermarkets too, Asda, Tesco, Sainsburys and Morrisons. They are all pretty similar...
