James Wong's Homegrown Revolution
James Wong's Homegrown Revolution
by James Wong
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £16.00

4.0 out of 5 stars James suggests plants that are both easy to grow and of little interest to slugs etc, 3 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're tired of a constant battle with slugs and bugs in your veg plot, this book is worth your attention. James suggests plants that are both easy to grow and of little interest to slugs etc. There is also a marketing spin off in garden centres where you'll find seeds for some of James' suggestions marketed with the same picture as on this book, to make tracking them down a little easier.
It certainly gave me plenty of new ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars * It looks like it belongs in your home, 3 July 2014
You can buy cheaper practice amps, but here are 4 reasons why you should go for this one:
* It looks like it belongs in your home; i.e your partner won't mind it sitting on the bookshelf. The other practice amps that look like mini-me stage amps have the looks that belong in a garage. Or like a 1950's toaster. In terms of aesthetics, Roland wins hands down.
* It doubles as an MP3 player; this means you can play MP3's and / or jam along to them.
* If you have an iPad / iPhone you can download Roland's free app that lets you manipulate songs in your library and record on top of them.
* It packs a punch. If you only play for family and friends you really don't need anything else. Playing a pub gig or stadium you'd obviously need more volume but this Roland delivers more sound than the neighbours will tolerate.

I think it's a great piece of kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 19 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After just a week of use I notice that my core muscles are stronger. I bought this model because I thought the dual wheel set up would be more stable, and it is. Assembly is easy and as a piece of exercise kit it doesn't take up much space.
Two tips based on the inadequate instructions it came with. You won't get to see your abs until you deal with your diet. More important, before use please check out some You Tube videos on how to use an abs wheel properly or you could hurt yourself

4.0 out of 5 stars This makes sense, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why take a biodegradeable mass (dog poo) and put it in a non-biodegradeable bag? These bags make sense, if only from that point of view.
Add to that the design is wide and deep and the "ears" are long enough to be tied easily and you have a winner here. If it's possible to get enthusiastic over a dog poo bag, this is about the only one you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says on the box, 16 Jun 2014

This gadget is great for weighing your luggage before you go to the airport, to prevent paying excess baggage charges. I reckon it has paid for itself several times over.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stand out on the airport carousel - and there's a bonus, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it's supposed to with no hassle. Why I'm reviewing is that I didn't know until it arrived, but the strap has a unique I/D stitched onto it. You can go to the manufacturer's website and register that I/D so that if you lose your luggage they can track it.


Bissell Cleanview Powerbrush Carpet Cleaner
Bissell Cleanview Powerbrush Carpet Cleaner
Price: £150.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Before I bought this product I used to hire commercial carpet cleaners. These are big and heavy and, being full of water, difficult to lug around. Add to that the need to return the hire quickly to avoid a late fee, and it was an exhausting business.
This machine pays for itself after only a few uses - and the whole family get to borrow it and we can all take advantage of the savings.
Pros:
It's always available - you don't have to plan when to clean, go and fetch a hire machine, work out how much chemical you need.
It's relatively small, with a long hose and a long electrical flex.
It has powerful suction, so gets a lot of water up - reducing drying time.
Cons: (Though these are not really bad Cons)
The narrow gap of the water "sucker-up" can get clogged - unless you take the manufacturer's advice and vacuum your carpets first.
The water tank is not very big - you can cover an average lounge before needing to refill. But IMO that's not a bad thing. It gives you a welcome break each refill, and makes the machine lighter to haul around.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just "OK", 16 Jun 2014

These pads crumble and disintegrate as you are using them. I find them OK for removing tea stains and cleaning up baths and stainless steel sinks. But actually those "magic" cleaning cloths work much better - and don't fall apart.

2.0 out of 5 stars the English gets in the way, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The standard of English gets in the way of clear explanations. The asanas are beginner poses, but it would be very difficult for a beginner to learn from this book because the English is very confusing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cumbersome, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's OK, it works but, boy, does it take up space. I bought it to get our dog into the car but then once the dog is in, there's no room to put these steps in after him. You need the size of a 4 x 4 to make this workable.
