5.0 out of 5 stars Immerse yourself in music, 27 May 2014
These headphones are the real deal. Bought for me as a present for a milestone birthday.Thank you.
As with most, if not all Bose products, they are quality through and through.The sound is something else.You can shut away any other noise and just listen to the music. The build quality is first class and I can see myself using these headphones for many a day.Ok not the cheapest, but, amongst the best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Held my interest from the first dramatic chapter to the end, 25 May 2014
In The Crimson Ribbon debut author Katherine Clements links the real figures of Lizzie Poole and Oliver Cromwell with Ruth Flowers, fictional narrator, whose life is turned upside down when a tragic and brutal incident involving her mother forces her to leave her old life behind and flee to London.

Finding work in the Poole household she meets and becomes beguiled by Lizzie, the master's daughter, who has the loveliest face Ruth has ever seen.

The novel deals mainly with the close and complex relationship between Ruth and Lizzie, particularly of Ruth's obsession with Lizzie.

Joseph Oakes, Army deserter, who met Ruth when they were both travelling to London, is smitten with her but her bonds to Lizzie are strong

This was a time of unrest and suspicion, the people were fearful of the plague and of witchcraft, witches were being hunted and hanged weekly. Their king is on the run from Parliament's New Model Army (who's General was Cromwell), and no-one knew who to trust. Pamphlets are freely distributed with all the gossip about the king. Gossip is not just reserved for the king, Lizzie is also being talked about and not in a kindly way due to her radical views.

I liked Ruth enormously, she grew in confidence and had more strength than she thought she had, she knew her own mind, was observant and clever, with the ability to suss people out. A skill she needed at times.

This was an interesting read, seeing a different side to Oliver Cromwell, well-researched, well-written and held my attention from the first dramatic chapter to the last. Thoroughly recommended.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really good brand, both for the staples, nails and the various guns.
I found these staples to be adequate for my purpose.They are strong and seem very durable.
My advice to anyone, is to get a good branded product, otherwise you may be doing the jobs again and again.
I recommend this brand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funky Backpack, 15 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This really funky Backpack is for my 3 year old neice.
She thinks she is the beez neez with this on her back and she wanders around thinking she is going to school. The vibrant colours and the sparkly design are right up her street.
With the cooler part of the bag she has her chocolate biscuits in which is a real delight for her.
The main part of the bag can hold more than she can carry right now.
This bag will see her through nursery and beyond.
I love it.
More importantly....she loves it.
Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!!!, 10 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a set of pans these are in the premier league.
They are very well designed as you would expect from Tefal, a leading brand. Made from a strong enameled aluminum with a non stick coating, they are very practicable. This set is for a ceramic electric hob.They can also be used in the oven.The range of pans in the set covers all needs for everyone. No further purchases will be necessary.
A really good feature is in the stacking of the pans. With strong detachable handles the pans can be stacked as the picture shows, saving a massive amount of storage space. Further handles can be bought if needed. A superb idea!!.

3.0 out of 5 stars Story of the Australian ranges told simply, 10 May 2014
This review is from: Coal Creek (Paperback)
Coal Creek is simply told and narrated by an un-educated Bobby Blue who's come to live and work with the new constable and his family in Mount Hay after his father dies.

Irie, eldest daughter of constable Daniel Collins starts to teach Bobby to read and write and a friendship starts to grow and mature.

The Collins family are from the coast and are not used to the ways of the Mount Hay community.
When Bobby's friend Tom is arrested by Daniel for assaulting his girlfriend and sent to prison, on the say so of her aunt who holds a grudge against Ben, Bobby fears he has handled it all wrong and he knew that Ben would want to settle the score with Daniel. He is a quiet and patient person, if no-one asks for his opinion he doesn't give it, he knows that Daniel is doing things wrong but he figures that he will learn the right way eventually.

Almost from the beginning we learn that some trouble is going to happen and we are awaiting what is to come with bated breath as Bobby slowly unfolds his story of a growing friendship, a lack of knowledge of the people and their ways and Bobby's loyalty to his childhood friend and his new found friendships are tested to the limit.

Bobby Blue's narration is spoken in a child like manner which I felt worked very well with intelligent and wonderful observations of the people close to him.

"But you cannot tell another person how to change their ways and I did not try to tell Daniel's wife how she might change herself to suit Mount Hay instead of trying to change Mount Hay to suit herself. Which I knew she would never succeed in. The people of Mount Hay was who they was and that was that. People of the ranges. And they mostly despised the people of the coast and laughed at them and their peculiar way of going on."

This is not a fast moving, exciting read, it is one to be savoured slowly and delicately and Bobby Blue paints a wonderful scene of the Australian ranges ways and their people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Flavour, 10 May 2014
This is a must for any busy household.
Put the food in for cooking in the morning and by tea time the food is ready.
Cooking a chicken is so flavoursome and tender.
Ditto with a beef joint or a gammon joint.
We all look forward to tea in our house now.
Recommended.And the price is great value for money at the moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mother of ALL chargers, 10 May 2014
This is a rapid charger / discharger built for all kinds of RC hobbies.
It will charge a whole range of batteries such as lead Lipo / Li- ion / LiFe / NiMh / NiCad / Pb and comes with more leads than you can shake a stick at!!!!
It features a high-power and high-performance circuit microprocessor with a whole load of safety features built in.
It also has a safe storage and time function.
In brief a charger of all chargers. ( It cant make a cup of tea though!!!!!)
I thoroughly recommend this and it is a great price now on amazon.
