Authors Editorial and Review 
"This book has been a favourite with Tropical Fish Keepers and a Best Seller now for over 28 years. The Discus Fish, King of the Aquarium is the hardest species to breed and keep in captivity. By following the routines and methods in this book, ensures any hobbyist can keep successfully any type of tropical fish, be it a community aquarium full of tropical fishes, or seeking to specially breed cichlids and other species of interest successfully. The fish food menu's inside this book I think are very unique, where folk can make up large amounts of specially prepared food that can be frozen down and used when required, creating vast savings on fish food and providing the very best for your fish, with a high protein diet and with all the essential vitamins and nutrients, for healthy thriving fish. - Alastair R Agutter.

    When Sean Mallen finally landed his dream job, it fell on him like a ton of bricks.Not unlike the plaster in his crappy, overpriced London flat.  
     
    
    The veteran journalist was ecstatic when he unexpectedly got the chance he’d
    always craved: to be a London-based foreign correspondent. It meant living in a
    great city and covering great events, starting with the Royal Wedding of William
    and Kate. Except: his tearful wife and six-year-old daughter hated the idea of
    uprooting their lives and moving to another country.  
     
    
    Falling for London is the hilarious and touching story of how he convinced
    them to go, how they learned to live in and love that wondrous but challenging
    city, and how his dream came true in ways he could have never expected.

    Red and white samplers have been popular throughout sampler history, sometimes used to practise marking linen for future seamstresses and sometimes purely for decoration. Helen Philipps' own red and white home sampler is a more contemporary take on the Antique French style, with ultra-white linen, a white frame and buttons. It has a contemporary look but the old French influences are still there.

    From the introduction: 
    Framing a piece of embroidery or an appliqued picture used to be a tricky and often prohibitively expensive business. The concept of framing an unumbellished piece of fabirc just because you liked the pattern was pretty much out of the question. I'm not sure when I first noticed people sharing pictures of embroidery displayed in the same hoop used to stitch it, but right from the start it seemed like the smartest of solutions.
