2.0 out of 5 stars It's not even the best fibre tip - Mitsubishi have made the "needle eye" ..., 6 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was expecting something new and evolutionary when Parker rolled out it's "5th technology" Pens but when all's said and done it's just a fibre tip pen in an expensive case.
It's not even the best fibre tip - Mitsubishi have made the "needle eye" series for some time, which easily out perform this offering from parker.


Uncle Tungsten
Uncle Tungsten
by Oliver Sacks
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a wonderful book, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Uncle Tungsten (Hardcover)
In this childhood autobiography Oliver Sachs revisits his childhood growing up in a North London Jewish family the son of two G.P. parents.
Young Oliver had an extended family full of many unusual characters including the eponomous "uncle tungsten" - his Uncle who ran a light bulb manufacturing plant, and was a mine of information about chemistry. another uncle was a Physicist and introduced Oliver to many of the wonders of science and nature.
The book traces the historical origins of Chemistry, interwoven with Olivers own discovery of Science set against a background of impending war in Europe in the late 1930's.
Oliver Sachs eventually went on the become a "celebrity" Neurologist & author in the U.S. but it is clear from this book that he retains many profoundly moving and exciting memories of a childhood in Britain learning the wonders of Chemistry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very infective topical fungicide, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This handy sized spray is highly effective in killing the fungi that tend to cause "athletes foot". Often knocks the problem out after 1 application and always after 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Arrived quickly & does the job, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for my son who has started A level Geography. Buying 2nd hand was a good saving on the new purchase price, and the way 17 year old's treat books, being a little dog eared to start with was hardly important !

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good book if you are interested in railway archaeology, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book contains many colour photo's from the 1960's that I think have not been published previously. Many of the pictures are taken just before or after closure & offer a poignant record of the Beeching era in Devon & Cornwall. The author is well versed and occasionally quite witty. I would recommend this little book to all those who are interested in the history of the westcountry's railways.

Parker Quink 57ml Ink Bottle Permanent - Blue
Parker Quink 57ml Ink Bottle Permanent - Blue
Price: £5.10

5.0 out of 5 stars A really nice royal blue, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it says on the tin, a nice rich royal blue, and this ink isn't the washable variety which in my experience tends to make the ink a bit "wishy-washy" ...


Purple, Grey and Black Striped Knitted Tie
Purple, Grey and Black Striped Knitted Tie

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Colours, 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The black-silver-purple colour scheme is very nice, the only drawback is that the material is quite thin so that the seam at the back of the tie shows through as a ridge on the front which looks a little odd.

England Historic Flag (Richard the Lion Heart) Flag 5' x 3'
Offered by Leomay Ltd
Price: £4.24

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice historic England flag, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pretty poor outdoor durability, the colours have faded badly and the metal hook eyes have rusted quite a great deal.

Sekonda Gents Strap Watch 3207
Offered by Jewellery Junkies
Price: £39.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A handsome watch, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very stylish watch, it has a matt black face set off by a nice rose gold case. The back is easily removable so home replacement of batteries proved quite straightforward saving the £5 you'd pay a jeweller to put in a 10p battery!


Ring Cyba-Lite Vega LED Lantern - Black/Grey
Ring Cyba-Lite Vega LED Lantern - Black/Grey
Price: £22.67

5.0 out of 5 stars Used this camping and it worked a treat, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This LED lantern proved to be very good on our last camping trip. It can be hung up on a hook or stood on a flat surface, and you can take the diffuser of for more intense light. Being LED the batteries last a long time. It has a clever little trick - when the main light is off a tiny green LED light flashed so you can find it in a pitch black tent !
