Geo Watkins Mushroom Ketchup (190ml)
Geo Watkins Mushroom Ketchup (190ml)
Offered by TSBIG
Price: £5.90

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing lack of mushrooms!, 13 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not quite what I remembered from years ago. It is very salty, and has very little taste of mushroom about it. That's not surprising, given that it contains mushroom powder rather than proper mushrooms!
I've used it a couple of times in beef stews, no doubt it will be finished rather than left to grow whiskers. But it isn't really much of a fine ingredient, and when one wants a mushroom taste one would be better just to use mushrooms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quietly getting into hot water..., 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"Which" said this was the quietest kettle they'd tested for years and gave it high marks. I fully concur: quick to boil, very quiet in use, reasonably priced: what's not to like?

This review is from: Southern Soldier (Audio CD)
Charming and very skillful re-enactment of music from the American civil war. Most enjoyable and really quite moving in its way.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the creme de la creme for me..., 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was the wrong Brodie. My mistake: I thought it would be the Maggie Smith embodiment. Oh, woe.

Milhaud: La Création du Monde/ Le Boeuf sur le toit/ Saudades do Brasil
Milhaud: La Création du Monde/ Le Boeuf sur le toit/ Saudades do Brasil
Price: £7.35

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to some of Milhaud's best music., 25 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The jazziness of la Creation, and the gallumphing rowdiness of le Bouef, expertly caught by Leonard Bernstein. Just a little too much of Saudades do Brazil, but that's mt vulgar taste.
A good, open, set of recordings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oatmeal: not just for porridge, 24 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been using it for less than 2 days, but it seems to be soothing very itchy skin on my legs. The oatmeal colloid seems very effective. Good stuff

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing slush, 5 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Oh dear: I'd never read Laurie Lee, and thought it a treat deferred. Alas, it is terribly sentimental and dismally over-written: I couldn't read beyond the first three chapters.

Mens MS122B Brown size 12 DUNLOP Moccasin Slippers
Offered by The Slippers Shop

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine for slopping about., 5 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In the old-fashioned phrase, "Cheap and cheerful". They fit, they are fairly warm, but a bit clattery because the plastic soles are rather hard. The dog leaves them alone because the suede is artificial. They will never be loved, but they do the job.


The Diary of a Rapist (New York Review Books Classics)
The Diary of a Rapist (New York Review Books Classics)
by Evan S. Connell
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Portrait of the rapist as a young creep., 23 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating and rather horrible novel, written from within the mind and soul of a self-justifiying stalker and assailant, who drifts into ever-deeper confusion in the course of a chaotic year.Beautifully structured, this portrait of a schizophrenic attacker as his mind collapses, and his domestic life falls apart too, makes a very uncomfortable read - not unlike Patricia Highsmith at her best.
