5.0 out of 5 stars Use regular ground coffee in your senseo, 13 Aug. 2014

This is a must if you have a senseo machine. It enables you to use your own ground coffee and is cheap and convenient.

Philips Senseo HD7863/80 Coffee POD Red

3.0 out of 5 stars Convenient and quick - but not the greatest coffee, 13 Aug. 2014
Makes a decent cup of coffee very quickly. It's not a proper espresso - a bit too dilute, and I haven't tried the speciality coffees such as as cappuccino as I think the sachets are a bit expensive. A bit more flexibility in terms of cup size and strength would be helpful. I have used senseo brand pods, and ones from lidl - which are very good value. I have also used a coffee duck - which is great. You can make a very good coffee in less time than it would take for the kettle to boil and the machine is easy to clean and use.

3.0 out of 5 stars A gripping read, but very dated, 22 July 2014

This review is from: Dead Calm (Kindle Edition)
This was a very quick read. It differs very markedly from the film, and although it attempts to describe the psychological motivations behind the characters actions, it did so in a very outdated sub-Freudian way. The relationships between the sexes are also described in a very old fashioned way, which grates a little. It reminded me in ways good and of old Dennis Wheatley adventure books - like 'Uncharted seas'.. Nonetheless less it was a very gripping read, and passed the time. For what it's worth - I think the film makers did a very good job in modernising and improving this story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not her best - but has its charms, 20 July 2014

This review is from: Northanger Abbey (Kindle Edition)
This was I think the first book of Jane Austen's that was accepted for publication, but it was not printed until 13 years later when her brother bought the manuscript back by returning the £10 advance. It therefore is less polished as her later works. It is a bit of a flimsy story, and has a charming, but very naive heroine. The hero Henry is a clergyman with a great knowledge of ladies fashions and a teasing sense of humour. I enjoyed the first half of the book, where Catherine stays in Bath and meets the awful Thorpes and although there are some good comic moments during the visit to Northanger Abbey the middle of the book flags a bit. The end is a bit rushed, but by then I was pleased to be nearly finished - the author acknowledges this herself, in a very witty aside. If you are only going to read one Austen then I would suggest P&P or Emma.

A good read. If you enjoy Jeremy Paxman's dry humour, you will like his comments on the history of royalty. This was a short book, and I would have liked more anecdotes, and perhaps a little bit more depth, but on the whole it was an interesting and fun read.

Excellent app with literally thousands of free sudokus. They are quite difficult, and I find even the very easy level a challenge, but will enjoy practising!

2.0 out of 5 stars A little dry, 2 Oct. 2012
I was expecting to find this an amusing read in the vein of 'eats shoots and leaves' or the 'entymologican', but it was really a style guide for the independent with a list of cliches. I would have enjoyed about the origin of the cliches, but this info was not included.
