Earned Brownie points from the wife with this one, not only that but a bonus I like it too! Good mix from Ms Ellis-Bextor.
An Excellent Listen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dolly Doesn't Fade, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Dolly must have one of the most recognisable voices in the country scene, it hasn't lost its flavour, the newer recordings here are as fresh as the older songs and I adore both versions of 'Frome here to the moon and back. In all there are 32 tracks on these two CD's
A great Album from a great Lady.

3.0 out of 5 stars Detail Sanding Sheerts, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These things grab like crazy, if you have any doubts that the fittings might not work, you can forget it, you'll have more trouble removing the pad from the holder but it does come off, so worry not about the fitting. I have a WORKX tool which takes adapters which will fit most of the other manufacturers pads/pad holders including Bosch, I found these particular sanding papers to be slightly inferior to those supplied, in that they didn't remove as much material, although that might not be a fair assessment if one takes into account these sheets need the larger pad so there must be a trade off in the work output.
Having said that, they do work well, the delivery time is good and the price competitive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remastered Sam Cooke, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Portrait Of A Legend (Audio CD)
A very good selection of Sam Cooke's music. Its typically Sam Cooke opening and closing with strains of his roots in Gospel music also favourites such as 'You were made for me', 'Cupid'. 'Chain Gang' in all 30 beautifully enhanced tracks all as far as I can see re-mastered from the original recordings.
The sound produced is 'richer' and clean a very good listen!

Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog (Smashing Magazine Book Series)

5.0 out of 5 stars Smashing tuition for Wordpress, 25 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I purchased this book (4th Edition) because most of my web sites are in HTML5 and I wanted to make sure I had an authoritative book to help me with occasional problems that come my way, Smashing Wordpress was certainly a good choice, the concepts are explained well with, in most cases, examples of code to help guide one through the coding.
I also was under the impression that the best use for Wordpress was blogs, which is a misconception but one held by a lot of HTML users.
However this volume, is not for the beginner, in the authors introduction he states "Although, I think anyone with some knowledge of HTML, CSS and PHP can learn Wordpress from this book, it is important to remember that it is not a beginners book". I am sure there are 'early learner' books out there for the absolute beginner, this is definitely not one of them, it has quite a pace to the instructions and it is designed to keep the reader 'on track' making sure the correct coding is applied instead of, as Mr Hedengren puts it, - sticking to the familiarity of the way things have always been done "instead learning to do them right".

The book is divided into four parts, (I) Getting Started; (2); Designing and developing themes; (3); Using Plugins and (iv); Additional features and functionality: This fourth part is about using Wordpress as a Content Management System to power traditional websites and it has changed my impression that Wordpress is just for writing Blog looking websites, it explains and why it is a Publishing Platform. - Though it still does good blogs :O) -.

Wordpress is a remarkable system, just go to the Wordpress site (http;//wordpress.org ) and browse the facilities, loads of which are FREE! You can also get a free hosted blog on wordpress.com, but the book is addressed to the .org organisation NOT the .com!
The download is free although the latest version there is 3.9.1; and boasts a true Five minute install. but don't start the clock if you have a slow connection for the download. This book was written with 3.8 in mind, I don't think there is a great deal of difference between the two other than mods and tweaks, the basics look is very similar but please, see here for up to date information on the content: http://wordpress.org/news/.
I am not totally convinced to change my allegiance from HTML 5, but I have food for thought in this volume and its well worth the purchase price, at the time of writing it is being offered by Amazon with a 5.60 discount making it just 22.39 with free delivery.

Ring RCT1 European Travel Kit
Ring RCT1 European Travel Kit
Price: 25.80

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything and its in One bag!, 21 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This travel kit is comprehensive, from the obligatory Warning Triangle to the equally obligatory twin French Breathalysers. Its all here - High Visibility Jackets, GB Sticker, a set of Beam Deflectors, a foil emergency blanket there is even a set of spare light bulbs, though if you have LED's you are not catered for but the chances of needing a spare LED are probably very low. There is a first aid kit included although I have my doubts of its use for anything more than very minor injuries. It is a required piece of kit and the European law on the subject demands that one should stop and give first aid - its termed 'the Samaritan law' and there is the threat of heavy penalties should one fail to stop and give aid at an accident. I have searched to find what the contents are supposed to be in the 'first aid kit' and all I can come up with is the European Directive DIN 13164, but I cannot find any listing for the contents and it looks as if this is the minimum to comply with the law. If I am expected to stop to help, I would want a little more than a few plasters and some rustproof scissors, but if it complies, then it complies.
The full kit, despite my concern about the first aid bag, complies with European law for travelling in a car and a very useful package it is, all contained in a single lightweight zipped bag, it even has Velcro strips on the reverse to prevent it sliding about in the boot, some countries insist the 'high vis' jackets are carried in the cab, so this bag may well stick on the back of one of the seats, keeping it handy. All in all very useful also very necessary for European travel and a very good price from Amazon too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Tent Light, 26 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This comes with a hanger which fits through the center hole.
The light is adequate for a 2-3 man tent but its a little wanting for a caravan awning, although it provides enough light for moving about, I wouldn't like to have to read by it. A good general light, light weight and cheap to run.

Tacwise A14014V 140-Staples Air Stapler Tacker
Tacwise A14014V 140-Staples Air Stapler Tacker
Price: 68.60

5.0 out of 5 stars Staple tool....., 26 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I believe this is a new addition to the line up of air tools from Tacwise, It takes the same staples (T140) as my hammer tacker, but it beats the pants off it for performance and accuracy of placing staples, its very quick and doesn't waste any air.
The machine itself is of robust construction which is what I have come to expect from Tacwise, it is light and well balanced. It is perhaps in need of more care than my hammer tacker since it only requires light pressure on the trigger to send a 14mm staple deep into wood. There is a safety device on the trigger, but once disengaged, the tool will fire off staples when its not in contact with any material, so as with any power tool, be careful where its pointed!
There are other staplers in the range which are also capable of firing nails, there is a model which will take rounded staples for cabling but I think it has a limited use due to the need of a compressor - or a very long air hose?
A very good piece of Kit.
