This is the aroma of urine blended with unwashed clothes. Other fragrances from Colony have been pleasant but this one suggests a neglected geriatric home.

2.0 out of 5 stars Stay with Karcher ........, 7 Nov. 2015
l have messed up & should have stayed with Karcher. l will at some stage convert the hose so it is detachable from the unit as the narrow cylinder stores it far too tightly coiled & you end up wrestling with it trying to keep a decent length on it but end up with the unit toppling over.
l do foresee the hose rupturing where it exits the reel as it is kinked very severely to enable it to coil back round the cylinder, it is possible after unwinding it from the reel that the hose stays slightly flattened & possibly restricting full pressure coming through.
On my Karcher l could stay with the one nozzle that applied the soap, a fine spray or full blast, the hose too was thicker & wouldn't kink as easily on the ultra thin hose on the Wolf model. The soap dispenser nozzle is hit & miss as to whether soap is dispensed or not, or maybe l haven't got the hang of that. The actual power of the machine is excellent. l have no issues at all from my Karcher, not one compared with the ones l have listed for this machine, avoid buying one is my advice.

I have received my iPod touch in good condition and promptly as promised. However, I am concerned that the package, from Hong Kong, was marked on the Customs declaration as Hole Puncher - value $80 (£45.60). Could you explain to me whether this was an error or an avoidance of such duty as should be paid on an electronic item sold to me at £201.50.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking Glass War, 14 Jun. 2010

This review is from: The Looking Glass War (Paperback)
A brilliant book. Absolutely gripping partly because of the nature of the story - spy fiction - but mainly because of the horrifying stupidity of the Circus higher echelons. It's all portrayed as a bit of a game, Boy's Own heroics, but instead of a grazed knee or a black eye, death and unintentional betrayal are the result. Nobody learns from what has happened, Smiley & Control keep a Godlike distance. There are no heroes, only a grim sort of Valley of Death idea where the only cost is to the poor deluded patriot. This seems more like condemnation than praise but the book is so well written, with such biting mordant humour, that it is a book I shall read again.
