Sturdy and comfortable folding chairs. The backs are adjustable. When folded they take up no more than 3 - 4 inches. Very happy with these.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aphrodite's Child (Kindle Edition)
It is a difficult balance to write about relationships and not fall into either bodice ripping romance, or cliff hanging soap opera. With this, her first novel, Sarah Catherine Knights has avoided those pitfalls and produced a solid story. We are steeped in Emily Blackwell's life with her children and her RAF husband, and their re-posting from England to Cyprus. The complexities of her relationship with her husband, her friends, and her children is built up layer by layer. When the unexpected, unwanted happens Emily is faced with making a decision that will permanently alter not just her life, but the lives of her children and husband as well. I enjoyed reading this book, and very much look forward to more from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't be better!, 3 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These succulents were so very carefully packed and protected that they arrived intact and unharmed. They were of good size (1 1/2 to 2 inches). The variety of form and colour was as the photo shows. They were not root bound, but had developed a healthy root system. I'm so pleased with these charming plants. Highly recommend this company!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Bag, 19 July 2011
I ordered this yesterday using standard delivery, and it arrived today! 5 stars to GEM Bags and Cases. I'm delighted with the bag. I used to work in a factory sewing bags similar to this, so I know quality when I see it. The bag is well designed, padded, and has lots of pockets and special slots to hold extra memory cards. The material is heavy duty, but not stiff to the touch. The word 'large' in the description doesn't mean huge. This bag will comfortably hold your camera and its accessories without being bulky. I like that it presents several options for carrying it - handle, on your belt, or over your shoulder with a comfortable strap. Very happy with my purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 23 July 2009
The bench is sturdy, comfortable and attractive in the garden. The bench is extremely well made too, with many little details such as no visible screws and expert joinery. I give the bench 5 stars... however, I take away 2 stars because the maker did not send a confirmation email after my purchase, nor notification that the bench was going to run over its stated arrival date. Better service needed. The bench is outstanding, though.

Not a very good how-to book at all. I recognised excerpts from other books, so I suspect this was cobbled together by the publisher. Don't waste your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I know why this is a classic, 23 July 2009
This book is about life lived to its fullest, and is not about death. This book is filled with descriptive passages that become poetry, as a way to have the reader feel what the characters feel. It is brilliantly written. Once read, this book will be with you forever. It is that powerful.

2.0 out of 5 stars oh puhleeeze...., 10 Mar 2009
This book is about a couple who are disconnected, uncommunicative, unhappy, and generally miserable. It is well written, but who cares? The author seems to dislike his characters too, as he puts in little snide comments on what they are doing. This book was a waste of my time, and I will not go see the film now either. yuk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes, 10 Mar 2009
This is a must have cookbook for those who are looking for healthy, delicious, low fat recipes. Also, the recipes are fun to put together. My husband and I have had a great time preparing and enjoying these dishes together. We have learned new ways of combining spices and herbs and discovered new taste sensations this way. Brilliant!
