5.0 out of 5 stars This instantly became my new favourite camping gadget, 24 Jun. 2016
Used at a guide camp on cold Spring Mornings in deepest Weardale where it had snowed only days previously. Quickest early morning cuppa at a guide camp I have ever known in 30+ years as a leader. In comparison to a standard 1 litre kettle on the other little camping stove set off at the same time it was twice as fast with more water in it. This instantly became my new favourite camping gadget.

some of the stories are a bit "samey". Good light read though. Can't see anyone getting away with similar now.

A little predictable, worked out whodunnit before the reveal. Still enjoyed the parent/teenage comedy effects and the working it out process though

Took me back to working at CMH in the 80s and 90s. The legend of the Grey Lady is known to those of us who have worked there which piqued the interest. An interesting mix of old and new QA roles. Quite creepy in parts. Also wondering if the refurbishment to apartments really will happen at some point soon as it is distressing to see the state of the venerable old building in recent years.

The Qm Handbook
The Qm Handbook
by Ruth Black
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST Handbook for managing catering at Guiding events EVER, 9 July 2015
This review is from: The Qm Handbook (Paperback)
I bought this book soon after it was published and it has been a useful source of information, help and advice to me and many other leaders ever since. Very useful tables of quantities of basic foods needed for various numbers. Lots of great diagrams and pictures of kitchen set ups, stoves, ovens, wood fires and a whole host of gadgets and useful bits of kit. It could do with an update and Guiding REALLY should think about brining our something like it again.

I remember this book from my 1960s childhood. It belonged to my mum who was definitely an awful speller; there are a lot of family jokes emanating from her misspellings. The fact that it is arranged how you think the word is spelt is totally practical for checking that you have got it right or not.

3.0 out of 5 stars way too small, 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My guides love a good pinata at parties. This was for a sleepover event with a monsters theme and seemed ideal. We felt it was far too small for an event for 20 people and the pull string element was just a very safely boring way of getting into it, the fact that this was a pull string pinata was not noticed on the advert and was a surprise when it arrived. we did not even know sucha thing existed.
