Karrimor Summit Mens Walking Shoes
Karrimor Summit Mens Walking Shoes
Price: 14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Third pair I've bought, 25 Jun 2014
I have just purchased my third pair of Karrimor Summit men's walking shoes. I use these as everyday shoes, and as I am heavy and size 46, I don't expect more than 18 months out of them. (For long walking trips, I use a different brand of sturdier shoes.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Important tribute to a Sutherland craftswoman's skill, 25 April 2014
This review is from: Kiss The Water [DVD] (DVD)
Wonderful pastoral film: it was significant that Megan Boyd documented her artisan skills, so that we can learn and copy if necessary.

The film rightly leaves out the politics of river life (despite including a shot of the unpopular Golspie statue of George Leveson-Gower). I recall being tugged between my Lower Brora poacher neighbour, and the water baillie (who wanted me to watch the water while his class were at Kirk on Sunday mornings). This DVD is a keeper, to be enjoyed again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality, design and size, 19 Feb 2014

Was nervous that this glasses case would be too small for largest specs, but the size copes with everything. I bought four of these, as the free optician cases fall apart after a few years. Very lightweight, so suitable for carrying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big, solid, Sheffield quality, 23 Nov 2013

Well-designed, impressive sterling silver frame. I would recommend this item for framing a variety of documents: letters, certificates, etc may not have a cash value but are still worth presenting properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bags of quality, 13 April 2013

Tough, smart, excellent product. No point in trying to mail something if it's poorly packed or poorly presented. Pack of 50 is more realistic than commercial packs of 250+.

Caterina Caselli and Gene Pitney performed Nessuno mi può giudicare, to come second at the Sanremo that year. This is an excellent compilation of all her work, before she turned to management and discovered Andrea Bocelli.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-designed and well-built, 10 Feb 2013

I line the box with pedal-bin liners, and it is easy to brush up stray bits of shredding. By never feeding more than four sheets of paper in at once, the motor never sounds strained. The hopper window is useful to prevent over-filling.

5.0 out of 5 stars This feeder changes everything, 10 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
By setting the cover at the right height, only small birds are attracted. This changes the feed eaten, since they won't eat grain - only sunflower seeds and peanuts. By keeping the feed dry, the cover also ensures that large numbers of small birds are now attracted in wet weather. Good product, very sturdy, easy to refill and keep clean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dell Streak 7 - this is a high quality leather case, 30 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At last Dell Streak 7 users have a genuine leather case that looks smart and does an efficient protection job. Also, it is an attractive brown shade, and not the economy River Rouge black that other products suffer from. Highly recommend it.


THE CAPTAIN LEAVES HIS SHIP The Story of the Captain of the S.S. Batory
THE CAPTAIN LEAVES HIS SHIP The Story of the Captain of the S.S. Batory
by Jan Cwiklinski
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Kindertransport - the last, sad journey, 9 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sir Nicholas Winton and Clare Hollingworth did the paperwork, but it was up to the ferries to finally bring across the rescued in the summer of 1939. From the Hoek van Holland and Ostend trains, they crossed the English channel to safety. But on Friday, 25th August 1939, the last passenger ship to leave Gdynia brought the final refugees from Poland before war broke out. This out-of-print memoir by Captain Jan Cwiklinski includes his tale of that last peacetime voyage of the Warszawa, to the safety of London. Captain Cwiklinski tells a fascinating tale of how he and his colleagues created a new Polish merchant marine, and how later the United States of America welcomed him as one of their own.
