5.0 out of 5 stars I like it., 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A little heavy for the frail and elderly but a useful well-made tool. Safer than a mains cable.


In the Beginning: A Catholic Understanding of Creation and the Fall, by Joseph Ratzinger

5.0 out of 5 stars Approach without preconceptions., 15 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A useful book. It clarifies many misunderstandings. Pope Benedict has a great gift for making Theology intelligible to those not educated in the subject.

These come in all shapes and sizes and costs. This particular one has the advantage of being a brush holder and glass holder together - most are either/or. Fitted to tiled wall by using a wooden pattrass - very neat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what i wanted., 9 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having a diverse set of hanging pockets with no decent linking or labelling system, I found these ideal as they solved both problems together.
I don't know why these are so hard to find:- (a) it took some research to find them at all, and (b) the office equipment market isn't exactly flooded with them. Of course, I could have bought a whole new system, linked and with labels, at a price, but I don't like feeling overcharged in order to get more than I actually need.
I think this is an excellent and useful product, and value for money.
I have no personal involvement with the goods or suppliers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful Stuff, 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I inadvertently got some Gorilla glue on a tricky surface. No conventional cleaner seemed to clear it, but this product did.
It's a bit of a pain having to pay transatlantic delivery costs on top. Why isn't it available in UK?

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than they look, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These things look too small when you fit them, and I expected they would be a complete waste of money with a deep pile carpet.
THEY ARE NOT - hey work far better than I thought.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pointless?, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why write a review for this? It is a straightforward product which either works or does not. If you have a printer which requires it then you need to buy it.
It's perfectly good.
Buying HP brand is expensive, compared with some of the re-filled products available. It's up to you, but my previous printer was filled with ink and ruined by such substitutes.
I have NO connexion with Hewlett Packard.

5.0 out of 5 stars No apple's here!, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
English is the richest language, and it is sickening to find it so misused today. I don't criticise colloquial users who know no better, but I bitterly resent teachers who "know" that the teaching of formal structures is out of date. Thus we have some school-leavers who for example cannot write an intelligible letter when applying for a job.
There are many books on grammar, but among them Gwynne's relaxed approach is worth examining. Certainly those who have been let down by their school could benefit from it.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Deja Vu all over again, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read and re-read this book back in the 1940s and always enjoyed it.
I had long thought it would be out of print, and was delighted to find this was not so.
It is the trend today to go to great lengths to de-bunk heroes, and Robert Falcon Scott is among the victims.
Ponting keeps him on his pedestal, and no bad thing!
The photographs are excellent, but better in the larger format book. Don't let that put you off, though.
A good read.
