4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Bag, 7 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all short story compilations, this is a mixed bag. I have always found that short story writers write a good short story but full length novel writers seem to have trouble with the short story. There are no bad ones here but some are certainly a lot better than others and prove the point I have made above. Having said all that, I quite enjoyed the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST THE JOB!, 16 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this piece of kit. It enables the fitting of any filter to a suitable camera where no provision is made for this. Filters must be of 72 mm and there are plenty of these available of every kind and function, from a number of sources. The UV filter supplied with the kit is excellent. The polarizing filter is less so but, at this price, there is no cause for a grumble and good polarizing filters of this size are plentiful and reasonably priced. Fitting the item to the camera is as easy as falling of a log. I have read previous reviews which claim that the fitting can damage the lens barrel and I suppose it can if you carelessly over tighten the grub screws. I have had no such problem and, indeed, there is no reason to remove it once fitted if your camera bag is large enough to hold the camera with the unit attached. Others have complained that they experience problems with vignetting and restriction of the zoom lens. On these points, it should be noted that zooming to just 1.8X will overcome the vignetting problem AND the front half of the unit's barrel may be unscrewed without removing the unit from the camera which will overcome the max zoom problem. My camera will zoom to 500mm and is NOT restricted by the unit, even with a filter in place. I can't afford a DSLR and this item has improved to a great extent, a very good bridge camera. I should add that I am also very well satisfied with the service received from this supplier. The price was great and the speed of dispatch more than acceptable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine phones., 20 Mar. 2014

I am deaf and have had problems with telephones for a long time, mainly in respect of clarity of sound.. These phones are the clearest I have ever used the sound being really sharp and well defined. With a very long garden my wife and I are often separated by 100 metres or so and we find the intercom facility extremely useful. The answerphone is a great asset and easy to use. Would recommend without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Morphy Richards 48268 breadmaker., 13 Sept. 2010
Have had the cheaper Morphy Richards breadmaker for over five years and obtained very good results. It was greatly overused and finally died. This machine is even better than the old one. Recipes are the same, or similar, but the bread is more moist and, as a result, lasts longer. I have read other reviews which have complained about various aspects of this machine. Sorry folks, but you can't be using it properly. The bread, rolls and other baked items are excellent time after time and we have now been using it for a number of weeks. I particularly like the 'drop down' blade which allows for far less dammage to the bread on removal from the machine. Very highly recommended and the price from Amazon is great too!
