5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Board Game, 13 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Risk Legacy (Toy)
This is a good board game that will keep you excited for ages.
I am not sure of the age range but we play it as a family.
With all the different levels and cards, you can play this game many many times and each game will be different.

As a family we like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Food Thermometer, 12 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the coolest Food Thermometer I have had the pleasure of using.

It is also gives the fastest readout as well.
This is the best feature of this device.

No more sticking the probe in and waiting for ages. With this you just stick the probe in and bingo the reading is there on screen.

The device has a nice stainless steel look about it.
It has a nice clear display.
It also reads in C degrees or F degrees.

There is a long cable with the probe, which lessens any faffing about.

Overall a really nice Food Thermometer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Robust Salt and Pepper Grinder, 12 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a real robust solid Salt and Pepper Grinder.

It is exceptionally good for use in cooking, adding a grind of the salt or pepper to the pot.
It also a class grinder to have on the table.

It has a stainless steel body which looks and feels very good.

It uses 6 AAA Batteries for no-wires easy use convenience . The batteries were not included.

On first use, in order to polish the blades, be sure to only use a minimal amount of salt and peppercorns.

After first use, gradually add more salt and peppercorns in to the chamber.
Should there be a jam at any time use alternate S or P button to unjam.

The Grinder is easily adjustable from fine to course grind, just adjust to your liking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hadrian's Wall., 12 Dec. 2015
This review is from: Hadrian's Wall: A Life (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When Emperor Hadrian decided to have a cross-country boundary wall built across northern England, he ordered all the extras - a north ditch, a south ditch (the vallum), forts, fortlets, milecastles and turrets.
This military zone was about law and order and trade.It was bringing the Roman ethics and way of life here to Britain.
It was policed by auxiliary soldiers who would have gone hungry without efficient supply bases, who would have been bored without lively, local villages to have fun in and who would have gone smelly without a good bath.

Hadrian's Wall is not just about the forts and Wall in the central sector.

You can visit Roman bathhouses, Roman temples, the vallum, forts, turrets, milecastles, civilian settlements and a military supply base or two.

Remember the Roman Army occupied most of Britain for nearly three hundred years and in that time Hadrian's plans got changed a little.
That's three centuries of building, battling, rebuilding, drinking, repairing, partying, bartering, more repair work, growing old and dying. Oh my!!!!

It's a wonderful story of meticulous planning, strategic positioning, good food and the best cloaks that money could buy (made in Britain).

I loved this insight into the finest nation, Rome, trying and succeeding on bringing their will to us England.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well Made Shorts. But why so Expensive????, 10 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are a great pair of men's shorts.

They are very well made.

They are very stylish.

They fitted superbly well.

They come with a nice webbed belt, that matches the shorts.

I will wear them constantly in the summer months.

But £40.!!!

Why so expensive.?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Mascara, 10 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like this mascara.
I have used this brand many times previously.
I recently changed to a new brand but I have now reverted back to Maybelline.

It has a beautiful deep brush that covers my area.

It gives a lovely smooth deep rich finish.
There are no smudges or flaking that you get with other cheaper brands.

I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting War Book, 7 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a first novel by this author.
It tells us the story of war at its bloodiest best/worst.
It is gripping and charming.

1854: The banks of the Alma River, Crimean Peninsular.
The Redcoats stagger to a bloody halt.
The men of the King's Royal Fusiliers are in terrible trouble, ducking and twisting as the storm of shot, shell and bullet tear through their ranks. Officer Jack Lark has to act immediately and decisively.
His life and the success of the campaign depend on it.
But does he have the mettle, the officer qualities that are the life blood of the British Army?
From a poor background Lark has risen through the ranks by stealth and guile and now he faces the ultimate test.
THE SCARLET THIEF introduces us to a formidable and compelling hero - brutally courageous, roguish, ambitious - in a historical novel as robust as it is thrillingly authentic by an author who brings history and battle vividly alive.

I loved this book.

It is riveting with a bloodlust of war.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely 4 Slice Toaster, 7 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good, well designed Toaster from a great brand.

This Breville Impressions 4 Slice Toaster will be in constant use in our house.

Whether it is bread, bagels or crumpets this Toaster will take them all.

Set the level of toasting to your desired setting and bingo,.
The settings are entirely up to you. Whether burnt or very lightly toasted this machine delivers.
It has a very simple sliding lever for the setting.

Ours is in beautiful plum colour which looks very expensive sat on the worktop.

A lovely toaster.
As I said this will get used almost daily.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Bottle of Gin, 5 Dec. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Tanqueray is a brand that I know little about.

I am not a big Gin drinker however after tasting this Gin I may reass my choice of drink.

This has a nice taste.
It has a lovely fruity alcoholic taste.

A nicely designed bottle to.

It came very well packaged, so no worries about buying this from amazon.

It is not the cheapest but it may be the best.

It is 43% proof so enjoy responsibly.
