This review is from: BBC Weather (App)
Surprisingly accurate for "St. Anne, Guernsey" (actually in the even smaller island of Alderney but G is our postal area) compared with my own weather station. Having run this station in my garden for the States of Alderney for the last 26 years I wonder where these figures actually originate.
Yesterday was a crystal clear sunny day despite a forecast for wind and rain with the most brilliant show of stars, planets, etc last night that I have seen for a long time. Even the barometer agreed at 1015mbar.
Overcast but dry at the moment, 07.30, with a TV forecast of gales and torrential rain for today.

5.0 out of 5 stars more functions and a better hinge on the lid than my 30+ yr-old Franklin ..., 26 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Same size, more functions and a better hinge on the lid than my 30+ yr-old Franklin solver which has just died after much use, despite my just replacing the batteries for only the 2nd or 3rd time in that period. It was almost the same price as that as far as I can remember after 30 years of inflation.
A great buy

5.0 out of 5 stars Registration problems, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first 3 Kindles sent all refused to accept my registration after as many as 500 attempts and a dozen changes or more of password. The first 2 were replaced promptly within 2 days, at no charge, the third, after a long conversation with a lady at your help line in the Philippines who insisted on giving me a refund and NOT a replacement. This took about 3 weeks until the money appeared in my next.Credit card statement so I gave up as the price had asked on your websitethen increased considerably from the amount I had originally paid. Some weeks later I got an offer from Amazon of a 20% discount on a new Kindle HDX so I accepted this and ordered. The item was despatched the same day with a "2-day Delivery" sticker attached to the parcel. It took 2 weeks to arrive here, having apparemtly been pushed into a shed at Guernsey Airport, through which ALL our mail comes from UK and elsewhere, with a mass of other parcels for Alderney, many of them sent out by Amazon and another load of packages dumped on top of them. No fault of Amazon for this delay and no response from Aurigny airlines to several complaints. This time I got a friend, who already has one, to do the registration and it went through in a few minutes. By some magic a few hours later it had picked up all the books and .pdf files which were on my old Kindle B/W reader without me doing anything. 2 days later I took it to Majorca on holiday and easily managed to access my own website<flora.org.gg>, by the hotel Wi-fi from there, also send e-mails, get home and Majorca weather reports and make phone calls to UK and Australia using my Skype account. Their recipients found the sound somewhat distorted but this was probably due to the broadband at the hotel. The built in user guide has proved useful but I have difficulty finding the Mayday button. (any quick ways ??). The battery lasts quite a long time, several days of intermittent use and it recharges in about 2 hours. I'm sure it will get a lot of use.
I am very happy with the item and the service from amazon and am gradually learning to find things more quickly

5.0 out of 5 stars With extra grey carteidge for better colour prints, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They arrived in good condition and with undamaged boxes in 2 days. Too early to have needed to use them for the new printer which, posted at the same time, took another 10 days to reach me despite carrying a GPO parcel "2-day delivery" ticket on the box date stamped on 5th December 2013 at 21.17. They were thus certainly dispatched by you on the day I placed the order, but as I have told you before, we have a peculiar postal system in the Guernsey Bailiwick. All post for Alderney and Sark from anywhere in the world except the other CIs comes by air via or from UK to Guernsey. Parcels etc. are signed for by the delivery system when they get there, (which could give a false impression to the sender that they have reached the addressee) and are then later distributed to Alderney by air and to Sark by boat. Alderney post usually comes up about 6.45am on the first Aurigny Airlines small 14-seater planes of the day which also brings the newspapers and local freight. If that plane is fully booked with passengers some of these get left behind, usually bulkier packages and (quite frequently on Saturdays) the newspaper weekend supplements and magazines, which usually arrive later in the day. I have been told by our airport carrier service who occasionally deliver some of the bulkier postal packages for the Alderney PO, that this printer was delivered to Guernsey at the same time as the two packages of ink cartridges which came by the normal post bags but the box was dumped in Aurigny's freight shed with many others in bags and left there for several days before forwarding. This happened again with my more recent replacement Kindle Fire HDX which sat in the Aurigny shed for 5-6 days, accompanied by 2 x 10-cwt vans full, of white sealed sacks all addressed to Alderney which were sent up late on a Friday afternoon on a plane only carrying freight, (Alderney/Guernsey post offices do not collect or deliver at weekends), which filled both of his vans to the top, much to the annoyance of the carrier who then spent the whole weekend sorting their contents and, very kindly, delivered it to me on a Sunday afternoon, as I had enquired if he had seen a package for me on the Thursday as the PO had said they had nothing for me. No fault of Amazon.

Fine as a record. The choices of 'songs' is very apt and, as no doubt intended, it makes an excellent tribute to the fallen in both wars

A lovely collection including a few of the inevitable Rieu tunes. I have 8 CDs or DVDs in my collection. He is always good listening or watching and I am sure the usual appearance on all the records of the 2nd Waltz, Redetsky March and Blue Danube never really tires.
