5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent historical novel, 29 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Turn a Blind Eye (Kindle Edition)
Unlike Alaric Bond's Fighting Ship series (also highly recommended) Turn a Blind Eye is set amongst the smugglers on the South coast and one man's quest to free the area from the grip of the local 19th century mafia, who make a fortune from their smuggling activities whilst terrorising the local populace. From this simple premise a thoroughly absorbing story is created. This idea may not seem very original so what makes Bond’s book different. As with Bond’s other books the storyline is character driven, each main character driving the action. The dialogue stems from the personalities involved, so the dialogue helps the reader to understand and conceptualise the characters. This isn’t an action novel with characters bolted on (although there is plenty of action). This, coupled with meticulous attention to historical detail, particularly with regard navel customs and equipment, gives the book a very real air of authenticity. It’s all very believable and all the more enjoyable for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent way of keeping teeth clean, 23 Sep 2013

I have had one of these for a while and people have remarked how white my teeth have become and the dentist was impressed with the general state of my teeth. So I bought one for my partner. Highly recommended.

What can you say about an adaptor. I use this with an electric toothbrush and it works fine. Would work equally well with shavers.


ANTIQUE BRASS metal extendable curtain pole 180cm to 340cm with BALL FINIALS
ANTIQUE BRASS metal extendable curtain pole 180cm to 340cm with BALL FINIALS

5.0 out of 5 stars Good sturdy curtain pole, 23 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good sturdy curtain pole which will support the heaviest curtains given the right fixings. No flexing on the brackets at all. The only problem I found was that being extendable if you don't have it fully extended there is a step on one side of the run, where the size of pole changes. To overcome this you would have to cut a equal length off both ends. This would keep the join in the middle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable lounger/camp bed, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter bought one of these and every one who tries it goes out and buys one. I'm not sure why fishermen need such comfort but this is a worthwhile buy even if you never go carp fishing. They are a supremely comfortable sun lounger and make a good emergency or spare bed. It will accommodate a six foot adult with ease and folds up neatly when not in use. As can be seen from the picture the back folds right down but can be set to a number of angled positions should you want a back rest for reading etc.. The fixing for this is good and strong and shouldn't fail easily. The legs are independently adjustable so that on uneven ground you can still have a horizontal bed. Here's hoping we get some more summer so that I can use it some more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value for money pasta plate, 25 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered four of these two days ago and they arrived yesterday well packed and in good order. They are very white (not off white), elegant but appear to be robust. I tried one last night for a main pasta dish and it proved to be just the right size. I ordered four more today!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sonicare brush heads, 12 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These work satisfactorily with the appropriate Philips sonic toothbrush. I have the basic Easyclean model. They have a wear indicator but I've found they last longer than the indicator would suggest. With two cleans a day you will probably get a couple of months' wear; the indicator runs out after about a month. The whole sonic cleaning system is not particularly cheap therefore but it does get your teeth very clean.

Does what it says on the tin. It is compact but unwraps and can be hung up allowing easy access to it's contents. Probably too compact if you have loads of bathroom items but fine for the basics such as shaver, deodorant, toothbrush etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works a treat, 2 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've only baked one cake in this so far, a chocolate sponge but it worked a treat. I'll try and do an update when I've used it more.

Update on 12th July 2013: I've used this several times now and still going strong. Cakes bake well and are very easy to get out of the baking mould.

2.0 out of 5 stars Epsom ink cartridges, 20 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In an Epsom printer as least these cartridges work very well. However, they don't last very long because they don't contain much ink. If the Guardian newspaper is to be believed the amount of ink inside has been reduced over the years whilst the cost has been going up. Shamefull behaviour but not restricted to Epsom. All the printer suppliers have done the same.
