These are cheap, work and clean your floors in a satisfactory manner.

To clean them just put them in a bowl of hot water with some detergent and wring out and allow to drip[ dry...


Amplicom Powertel 50 Alarm Plus Corded Telephone
Amplicom Powertel 50 Alarm Plus Corded Telephone
Offered by Hearing Direct
Price: 46.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good at what it does, 13 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a first class telephone for the hard of hearing with a loud ring, a 'loop' for hearing aid users, an optional amplifier and flashing red lights. It also has a very effective alarm button that causes the phone to contract three numbers and deliver a pre recorded message until someone answers it with the correct signal (which is pressing the '0' button)

It works, it is easy to programme and, for the service it provides, it's remarkably cheap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 13 April 2014

An excellent product that is cheap and a delight to use, even for large awkward pieces of sushi.

They're also quite good looking and even have a small amount of carved decoration.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting but with mistakes, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Paxman's ideas are sound but he repeats some classic historical howlers in this entertaining retelling of the British empire.

It's almost as if he wants to be some sort of historical revisionist but can't quite manage to bring himself to it...


Glasshouse
Glasshouse
by Charles Stross
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully odd book, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Glasshouse (Paperback)
An interesting novel about an ex soldier from the far future who has had 'surgery' to erase his memories and then discovers that his previous enemies are still after him so he signs up for a closed experiment.

It's loads of fun, rather complicated and I'd have liked to know far more about the original society our hero lives in before we jump to the closed society of the experiment.

Bough for my wife to elevate her legs when she's sleeping. She says it's comfortable, the cover is easy to wash and it seems to be wearing quite well.

Brilliant gadget, worked straight out of the box, even though we've got the dreaded BT Home Hub 3, makes using BBC iPlayer and Youtube on your TV dead easy, the only downside is that Google don't let you display stuff directly from the net even if you're using Chrome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seems to work ok, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My wife expressed an interest in learning rto use chopsticks after seeing me use them I learned as a teenager and have used them, on and off, ever since.

Anyway, these are the large square section plastic sticks that many people use, they're a bit clumsy to hold but easier to use to eat with and the rubber thingie on the back stops the upper stick being dropped, as happens so often with a beginner.

So yes, it works, it seems to be helping my wife learn the technique and it'll make visits to the local Chinese restaurants more entertaining.

Brilliant little gadget that sits on your keyring and frees supermarket trolleys when necessary. As I use a 'man bag' and don't normally carry change in my pockets this works fine. If it's raining it also allows you to abandon your trolley at your car without any financial penalty...

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid, cheap and works, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice slim umbrella stand that takes three or four walking sticks and an umbrella. It's metal, solidly built and stable. A very good value item that does exactly what it says it does.
