The programmes are very good and funny. However the introductory advertising inserts are very irritating and should be removable now..

4.0 out of 5 stars HP Envy 4500 printer, 15 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good and fast printer for me and good value for money. However the ink containers are rather smaller than I prefer and I have to change them more often than I expected (my previous HP printer had larger ink containers, but wasn't half as effective as this one). It includes a copying and also a scanning ability and is not too big at all. It's certainly good value for money!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ring RAC640 Digital Air Compressor, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a well constructed implement which "does what it say on the tin". The carry bag that come with it is very useful because it saves having to replace the electric cable back into its slot in the body of the machine when it's finished with. The tight housing/accomodation for the cable makes it very difficult (for me) to replace the cable in its original housing. However, with the carry bag, it's not necessary to do it.

RAC150 (RAC 150) Ring Digital Tyre Gauge

5.0 out of 5 stars RAC 150 Ring Digital Tyre Gauge, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The best product of this type that I have ever had. It's so easy to use, it's illuminated where necessary and the most important thing to me is that it is the most accurate tyre pressure gauge that I have ever used.
An excellent product. It surprises me that I saw a mechnical pressure gauge in a well-known shop recently that indicated that it was only accurate to + or - 2 p.s.i., which is absurd from the tyre wear and safety point of view.


AD 410: The Year That Shook Rome
AD 410: The Year That Shook Rome
by Sam Moorhead
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.27

5.0 out of 5 stars A superbly written and very interesting book., 10 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before I read this book, published in 2009, I had read "The Romans who shaped Britain" published in 2012 and written by the same pair of authors, Sam Moorhead and David Studdard. Sam Moorhead is a British Museum expert on Roman coinage and David Studdard is a freelance, well informed author. Together they just seem to get everything right in the creation of a superbly informative and, very importantly, superbly interesting book.
Along with many other older persons, what I learned at school about the departure of the Romans from Britain in around 410 AD was that the empire came under threat and so the legions left Britain to defend Rome. A more rounded and complete picture is presented in this book and I must say it is a vastly more complex and interesting series of events than I had ever thought.
The book is a combination of historical facts and theories presented in a competent and very interesting way and I recommend it as an excellent buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent facts written extremely interestingly., 10 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this book because I had only just learned that Sam Moorhead, who is the Roman coin expert at the British Museum, had actually written a book. I have previously attended some of his lectures on Roman coinage and found them very informative and, most importantly, very interesting. He always breathes life into the environment in which the coins were minted and their relevance to the people.
The book is written in collaboration with David Studdard, who is a very well informed freelance writer.
I cannot recommend this book too highly, not only to people already interested in the times when the Romans occupied and settled in Britain, but also to people who just like a good story. The book is not a dull collection of facts presented in a tutorial manner, it is a story, containg hard facts, but written in such a way that I believe anyone will find very fascinating indeed.
When I bought this book I learned of the existence of two others written by the same team and purchased them also. I have now read all three and really strongly recommend them all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product., 1 Jan 2012

The glasses were delivered safely and on time. They are of excellent quality and have a beautiful and consistent ring to them when pinged with the finger. However, more importantly, they are lovely to drink wine from. I have been a wine drinker for about forty years and can honestly say they are the best glasses I have had. I have no hesitation at all in strongly recommending them to everyone.
