5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Portable Sound, 3 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This speaker is excellent. Portability with no wires, good sound and looks the business. When my son saw this he wanted it!!! It is so good to listen to music from my phone or tablet out in the garden. The sound is very good with a rich bass.You can move it around in the house without any distortion. It also has a jack plug connection if say you wanted to listen to it by a pc/laptop without bluetooth connectivity.
This is 50 well spent for anybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings the 1920's Era to Life, 2 Jun 2014
What a delight to be back in the company of First World War widow and amateur sleuth Kate Shackleton in this tale of murdered Maharajahs, a feisty fiance, a missing diamond and royal rivalries all in the heart of the beautiful Yorkshire countryside.

This is the 5th book in the series -- I've read and enjoyed the first two -- Dying In The Wool: Number 1 in series (Kate Shackleton Mysteries) and A Medal For Murder: Number 2 in series (Kate Shackleton Mysteries).

Tasked with finding a missing Maharajah, Kate is the perfect person to question people without them realising they're being questioned, she draws people out, they trust her and she's very persistent. She's an extremely likeable heroine and I enjoy the way she thinks things out carefully and deliberately.

While out shooting the Maharajah had shot and killed a white doe, an act of sacrilege in this superstitious village and some people were not surprised when he was found dead, but who was the killer and why would anyone want him dead?

Frances Brody's delightful writing brings the era of the 1920's to life, the plot was entertaining with some twists and turns and suspects aplenty. I did not guess the killer's identity.

Even though I haven't read all the books in this series I still found it easy to follow Kate's progress and mentions are made throughout the book to Kate's situation so I think this could be read on its own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 1 Jun 2014
This is the smallest video cam I have seen.
Don't believe that size matters. This is only slightly bigger than the size of a 50p piece, but the quality of the recording is quite stunning.
All you need to get going is a micro sd card.
The cam comes with a water resistant clear plastic case, which is good for protecting the lens without any loss of clarity, a USB cable, a manual and two fixing devices for attaching to a cycle helmet or the handlebars of a bike.
I have trialled it on a bike and it was superb. I also attached it to the strap on my backpack with great success. My son used it while slack-lining and the recordings were hilarious!!!
For less than 35 this cam will bring you loads of great moments to view again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars charging without wires, 27 May 2014
Honestly!!!! This is the first wireless charging device I have used.
Its brilliant. Ok .I was a little sceptical, but everything worked!!!! I placed my htc phone on the charger and sure enough the green led light came on to let me know the phone was correctly placed and then the blue led shows to let you know it is charging.
It has some fail safe gizmos built in which let you know if the phone has not been placed correctly on the pad.
All in all a fabulous device and one which I know I will use constantly.
Well Done OXA for a stylish and not too expensive charger pad.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb, 27 May 2014
I bought this for my son as a birthday pressie.
It ticks all the boxes.It is fantastic for use in a living room.It plugs into the mains, it has a jack plug, so you can use this with say any computer, and it has very easy to use bluetooth connectivity.Use this from your phone or tablet.With a full FM Radio setting this device is perfect for use in a flat or one room abode.
Brilliant.And at under 40, all your music needs are met.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 22 May 2014
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.
