4.0 out of 5 stars Shampoo you too, 27 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We've been using this shampoo for some years now and my daughter, who has a gorgeous head of long, auburn hair swears by it. Some shampoos make her look like one of the Hair Bear Bunch but this keeps it manageable as well as shiny and lush.

A fresh, invigorating scent, the shampoo lathered and washed away easily, leaving her hair soft & easy to comb.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hugely disappointing. Returned to Amazon for a refund, 16 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems like a great idea, but unfortunately I couldn't get it to pair with my Galaxy SIII Mini. I did manage to pair it with my Galaxy Tab S but then it spuriously unpaired and then wouldn't Bluetooth at all. Sending it back.

4.0 out of 5 stars Coffee on the go, 11 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Unpacked it, plugged it in, followed instructions, turned out a fairly acceptable and nicely frothy latte macciato, all in the space of a few minutes. It's not difficult to set up or use, despite the slightly obscure pictorial instructions.

The latte was, I admit, a little feeble for my tastes and something stronger would have suited, but I expect I could have chucked in a shot of espresso to pep it up, had I been feeling adventurous and had it not been 8pm and almost beddy-time. After a few days of use it's become increasingly obvious that the coffee isn't quite hot enough. Perhaps it's adequate for an immediate breakfast drink, but for my morning commute I prefer something that will stay hot for a bit longer. A 30 second nuke in the microwave soon sorts that out.

The machine comes with a small selection of capsules of which the latte was one. There was also a grande which actually smelled pretty good as it brewed and tasted fine if (again) a little insipid.

The machine looks good - as others have said, it wouldn't look out of place on the Starship Enterprise - and doesn't take up huge amounts of counter space. The water reservoir is a little small, but will service at least two large mugs of coffee and you probably wouldn't want to be making your morning brew with stale water anyway.

Update #1: I've just bought (on Amazon, of course) a pack of 48 Grande Intenso pods at £17. That works out at about 35p per mug which, I suppose, is rather less than one would spend at <ahem> a "certain high street coffee shop chain", but rather more than a jar of Nescafe granules so you pays yer money etc etc. It remains to be seen whether I can find a better deal at Tesco or Asda (are they even sold in such places?) and indeed whether the Nespresso coffee actually tastes any better...

I'm afraid that these look more ridiculous than sexy. And even for a modestly endowed man, the sheath was too small.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't remove before flight, 6 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A miniature facsimile of those R-B-F tags you see on military aircraft, this is a very high quality novelty key ring, fabricated in cloth with an embroidered logo and a decent quality split ring. It's ideal for your car or bike keys and is a little more original than "My Other Car is Also a Ferrari"

4.0 out of 5 stars Crocodile Dundee, 2 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really nice hat; well manufactured and as far as I can tell of excellent quality. The brim is reinforced by a steel wire to keep it rigid, the stitching seems robust and there's a small leather flap on the inside of the crown to protect the leather from your brow sweat. I have been rained on a few times now and the hat has proved (with the assistance of a couple of applications of nikwax) suitably water resistant.

One problem was the smell. By golly this hat really ponged. Leave it in the hall or porch and the room will end up smelling of cow and, to begin with, the missus made me leave the hat in the garden shed. That solved the immediate problem, but even in the open air she can smell my hat and during walks in the country I attracted a worryingly persistent cloud of cattle-flies. And when I take it off, my head smells distinctly bovine. Fortunately, after about a month of use, a wash, several rain showers and a couple of waxings the pong has settled down from Eau de Vache to a rather more demure leathery aroma.

PS _ I actually live in Dundee, hence the review title.

4.0 out of 5 stars Utterly, ridiculously overpriced..., 25 Jun. 2015
...and I swore I would never buy it. But having suffered a chunkier, heavier and rather more down-market cover to protect my Kindle for some time< I eventually gave in and bought this.

Well, I suppose you get what you pay for. It's very nice. The Kindle sits in the rigid plastic tray, held magnetically and (more or less) firmly. The foldover leather cover lies snug against the screen or the back (note book style) and is again held in place by magnets. Opening the cover wakes the Kindle up and it can then be transformed ingeniously into a hands free stand. Very slick and good looking and, most importantly, it adds little in the way of weight or thickness to the Kindle itself, which is a big plus.

One complaint is that if your Kindle drops off to sleep while the front cover is open it is a bit of a faff to access the on off switch (which is hidden behind the front cover).

4.0 out of 5 stars I have such sights to show you..., 16 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Abdul al Hazred, better known as the Mad Arab, was the author of the Necronomicon ("Book of the Law of the Dead"); a notorious tome that recounted his learnings and explorations of the occult mysteries of the vast and trackless wastes of the deserts of Sana'a. Best known as a hagiography of the Old Gods; Yog Sothoth, Cthulhu, Baal, Yig, Nyarlathotep, etc the Necronomicon is, in fact, a completely fictional work that exists only within the Cthulhu Mythos started by HP Lovecraft and perpetuated by a raft of like-minded authors ever since Howard Phillips (that incorrigible old racist) first put pen to paper.

However, Donald Tyson did in fact write and publish his own vision of the Necronomicon, and a fine and convincing rendition it is too. He followed it up with this, supposedly a biography of the Mad Arab himself. It starts with Alhazred's transgression, disgrace, torture and exile from the court of King Huban ibn Abd Allah in Yemen and thence follows the layout of Tyson's Necronomicon, as Our Hero consorts with ghouls, explores dead cities, partakes of human flesh (the more gamey the better, it would seem) and dabbles in necromancy and self-resurrection. Well, I say "dabble"... more like immerses himself entirely without recourse even to a pair of water-wings. Hardly surprising that no one ever came to his cocktail parties.

Like its predecessor, Alhazred is a well written and feverishly imaginative piece of work. It is fairly long and it does tend to drag through the middle. Having read Necronomicon immediately before hand, perhaps I was too familiar with the direction the plot was taking and with the occult details of the story within. Nevertheless, it's a good companion piece and adds flesh to the bones (so to speak...) of Tyson's addition to the Lovecraftian canon.

Well worth a read, but please don't forget to appease the Elder Ones with a sacrificial virgin after each chapter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thong thung blue, everybody loveth one..., 4 Jun. 2015
I'm not a small man, and I was concerned that even the Large size wouldn't fit me, but it did, and surprisingly well.

Having said that, it IS a small thong and it doesn't leave much to the imagination or, for that matter, much room for movement and I found myself popping out at inopportune moments.

Nevertheless, this thong is comfortable and sexy.
