2.0 out of 5 stars Great while they lasted..., 29 Nov 2013

This review is from: Eudemon Freshlight - 2700K
I bought three of these bulbs in early September, as of now (end November) all three have blown. Pretty poor performance for a standard light bulb, let alone a low energy/longlife one.

This review is from: Aphrodite's Dawn (Kindle Edition)
Finally, a YA book that strips back the overworked teenage angst and just tells a good story! I really enjoyed this and my only gripe is that it ended far too soon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Product, 21 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not only did the biltong box arrive well ahead of the scheduled delivery date, it was well packaged and came with clear instructions for assembly and use. The sample spices are quite generous (enough to make two to three batches at 1.5kg a batch) per packet. The instructions to prepare the biltong are also very clear and concise.

I will say I think the product itself is a bit overpriced (given you can buy a smaller version elsewhere for £65, or ZAR200 in South Africa) but for ease and convenience, not to mention the hygienic nature of the box itself, it is worth the investment.


Bruce Aidells' Complete Sausage Book: Recipes from America's Premier Sausage Maker
Bruce Aidells' Complete Sausage Book: Recipes from America's Premier Sausage Maker
Price: £8.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Covers all the bases, 16 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I own several books on sausage making, smoking and curing meat. What all of them fail in is what this book did so well, it gives specific instructions that instill confidence in someone coming to this art for the first time.

There are specific temperatures for hot and cold smoking, troubleshooting for why sausage skins burst on cooking, or drying, etc. Useful, practical information that the expert doesn't think about because it seems so very basic, but for the novice, is so critically important to both make and then eat these products with confidence.

The history that accompanies each type of sausage is very welcome too. I am not American and have only a passing knowledge of US history yet by way of reading about each type of sausage and how it came into existence has proven to be a great lesson in the diversity of the US and its immigrant cultures.

I can highly recommend this book.

This is a story in the grand tradition of stories. It takes its time being told, paints each scene vividly and has a satisfying conclusion. I can highly recommend.

Faithfull Stainless Steel Border Spade - Ash Shaft Yd
Price: £22.58

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice spade but..., 17 Aug 2013
This is a pleasure to use, light, easy to work with, etc. That said, I have only used it 3 times equal to about 4 hours light garden work and the shaft split where it joins the blade. I am hoping this is just a defective spade and not indicative of the quality of the product in general. I still have and use the garden fork and it is showing no signs of weakness in the construction as yet.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a Pleasureable Read, 13 Aug 2013
This is a brilliant little book from beginning to end. Very enjoyable and light. A story beautifully told. It is fantasy but a very 'light' fantasy with the relationship between the characters taking centre stage. Thoroughly enjoyable and a good read for any age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the next book!!!, 26 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Blackbrook II picks up right where the first book left off and, unusually for the middle book, actually ratchets up the pace even more...Liberty Connor, the main character, does spend rather a lot of time crying and having hysterics, though I guess in that sense she is more 'real' than may of the teenaged heroes of modern literature. A very enjoyable read, full of surprises and I still feel like there is so much more to learn about these 'Crits'. Can't wait for the next instalment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Feels Flimsy..., 6 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This spatula feels a bit flimsy but works very well. With care I suspect it will last a very long time and for some dishes it is certainly much easier to use than the clip on thermostat. Can highly recommend for the price.
