5.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight Cordless Sweeper, 18 Dec 2014
I bought this for my mother. She is 85 years old and wanted something lightweight.
This certainly is lightweight but that has not compromised its use.
It does a very good job.

4.0 out of 5 stars The town where Cocktail hour starts early and finishes late ... colourful characters and a nosy sleuth ....fun whodunnit, 14 Dec 2014
What a life the wealthy residents of Bryn Mawr live! Their regular meeting and drinking place is the local exclusive Country Club where the normal dress etiquette is designer clothes and pearls. A town where everyone knows everyone else's business and their favourite pastime is gossip during cocktail hour....which seems to start early morning and end late evening!

Of course our protagonist, Kristin, who inherited an antiques store from her grandparents, is broke but that doesn't stop her enjoying the delights of the Country Club too. When she and her lovable basset hound, Waffles, discover the local builder of dodgy town houses lying unconscious inside the grounds of the largest expensive property in the town, she is curious as to who the attacker is.

Together with a quirky (and very rich) assortment of friends, she discovers that there were no shortage of people who held a grudge against him. Then the local Chef is attacked and Kristin's snooping takes her to discover more than she bargained for.

I really enjoyed this story, I loved Waffles who's 'ecstatic reaction to every person he meets is contagious', I loved meeting the residents like Sophie, soon to be ex-wife of the dodgy builder, who always wears pink and is a bit dizzy, there were plenty of hunky men like Channing the sous chef who looks like an Armani model with huge biceps, and John the local vet who Kristin takes a liking to ........

A really fun read, I didn't guess whodunnit, I enjoyed the storyline from start to finish, Kristin is the perfect nosy sleuth, and the nutty but nice residents add colour and character to the first of a new series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Light and Bright, 14 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great bulb from a leading manufacture of led bulbs.

It fits easily into a GU socket.It gives off a superb bright light, and I will replace my other GU10 bulbs with these as and when they blow.

The narrative states that it burns for 25,000 hours with a 90% saving in energy costs.

A win, win all round.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big and Bulky, 14 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As with all Steam Generator Irons this unit is big and bulky.
If you need an iron just to iron the run of the mill clothes eg shirts, undergarments,smalls etc then my advice would be to use your conventional iron.
If you are looking at ironing bulky items such as say jackets or sheets,( do you iron your sheets ?????? )or even steam ironing your clothes on the hangar, then this is the one.
This Polti Vaporella has all the bells and whistles. Large water tank, continuous powerful steam blast generated etc.

Yes it delivers a good ironing use, but for some people like me it is just a little bit bulky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Light, 9 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What a nice looking lamp this is.
Easy assembly from the box.
No tools necessary.

This can be used as a standing light on the floor, or as a table light, whatever suits. Superb. The head is movable to any position, so no shadows.

The light is very bright. Great for reading.
It can be used with batteries or, as I prefare through the mains.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
TACWISE is a top brand.

This is a box of 5000!!!!!! yes 5000 galvanised 25mm nails.
These nails can be used with a variety of nail guns, but I recommend the Tacwise 191ELS Nail Gun.

I spent a little time putting some beading on the bottom of the skirting board to finish a laminate flooring job.
Brilliant. I fired the nails in perfectly without any hassle.The nails went in no problem and they didn't protrude at all.

5000 nails will last even the most busy D.I.Y enthusiast a while.

I am also going to be doing a boarding job in the garage so again these nails and a gun will be invaluable.

3.0 out of 5 stars So so Grater, 7 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ok, so this is from Zyliss, a very good brand for kitchen utensils.

As you would expect from this brand I found the Grater very well made and robust.

One downside with this, is that you can only grind small pieces of ingredients.
It takes ages for grinding carrots or cheese.

Overall, three stars , which is such disappointment for this brand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Book, 7 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really good, well written book.

This classic is the real deal. Uncensored, as it was meant to be when it was written.
Ignore the flowery cover.
Ignore all the pretentious reviews.

Take this book as it was meant to be.
Gutsy with real life woven through a desperate situation. WAR.

I liked it.
