Vitabiotics Wellwoman Original Vitamin & Mineral Formula With Evening Primrose & Starflower Oils 30 Capsules
Offered by Activecare Online
Price: 6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars No calcium, 29 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The missus is taking these and I noticed there's no retinol or calcium in them, so you would need additional supplements to stave of osteoporosis, for example. Otherwise she says they make her sleepy in the afternoons, but I can't really verify the veracity of that claim.


Mens Womens Cowboy Sun Hat Fancy Dress Unisex Tan 100% Cotton
Mens Womens Cowboy Sun Hat Fancy Dress Unisex Tan 100% Cotton

4.0 out of 5 stars Squash for best effect, 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although not ideal in its natural state if you scrunch it up a few times and bend out the brim so it's flat all round this forms a perfectly serviceable hat. Made of cotton but the belt is for show, so the sizing can be a bit iffy. I wanted a large but as its extra-large/large I wanted to tension the belt to reduce the slack, but it's just stuck on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging read, 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Sugar Barons (Paperback)
An interesting and entertaining history of the West Indian sugar industry, starting from the very early foundation in Barbados to the later centuries on the other islands. Covering the people and their inter-relationships it gives a good socio-political viewpoint of this important part of British history.

Creative WP-350 Bluetooth Wireless Headphones with Built-in Microphone
Price: 64.51

2.0 out of 5 stars Microphone issues, 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although generally acceptable in the headphone area the fact that the mic is in the ear piece means the pick up is not very good. Tried using it with Skype for calls but had to give up as you can't make it loud enough. Sound quality was acceptable otherwise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic scanner, 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mostly used for scanning documents and old photographs, the resolution is reasonable and the software does what you want. Not very robust so treat it fairly gently.

STORMTECH UNISEX PACKABLE RAIN PONCHO, RED
Offered by NGWorld
Price: 18.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Suitable for a smaller frame, 16 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my wife for when she rides round on her scooter and it fits her comfortably, although she is only 5' and petite. So probably not so great a fit for anyone who isn't a pixie. Folds up into a reasonable sized pack, like a large purse.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
No complaints, it remembers things and fits in my phone. SanDisk haven't let me down in the past and this one is still going.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sole a little thin, 15 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My only beef with this sandal is the sole is a little unforgiving, there's not much give or padding. Otherwise they broke in within a day and the non-stinky lining seems to be working. Straps are snug and comfortable on my duck feet.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good topic poorly presented, 14 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What should be an interesting topic is ruined by rambling, overly floral writing. It's an uphill battle getting through the first section and he's definitely being paid by the word, so I gave up.

Edition: Paperback
Price: 6.29

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting and informative, 14 July 2013

A good breakdown of the divisions in the mid East that lead to today's problems. No bias towards either French or British position.
