This excellent book is very well illustrated and has lots of different pool designs, from small containers to large bog gardens. Chapters on preparation, choice of site, drainage and construction techniques, as well as plants and fish and maintenance. Al in all the only book you will need.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wildlife friendly advice, 1 July 2013

Beautifully illustrated, and lots of information on the wildlife we may attract to our gardens. Would have like a few more designs or plans to follow, otherwise an extremely useful book of reference.


Ring Automotive RAC610 Analogue Compressor 12 V
Ring Automotive RAC610 Analogue Compressor 12 V
Price: £11.69

4.0 out of 5 stars Small but powerfu, 25 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this tyre compressor after buying several cheapie models which did not last long. Easy to use and a long lead but my only criticism is with the connector to the tyre valve. I find the screw- in action is more fiddly than the old clip on method. It appears well made and the cable tidy is useful. Only time will tell how long it lasts. I always use an old fashioned gauge to check pressure as air is lost when removing connector.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazon email gift card, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased a gift card using a photo of my own to be sent to a friend as a surprise 'Thank You' but it did not arrive so I had to spoil the surprise by asking her to tell me when it did. Fortunately I was able to request Amazon to send it again which they did without question.

2.0 out of 5 stars Gunson 77046 Battery charger, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This battery charger is a poor design - mine stopped working a week after guarantee (1yr) expired. I rang Gunson who agreed to have it back and exchanged it for a new one. The problem is that the positive and negative cables are at base of charger and in time become worn leaving bare wires which spark when in contact with metal. I believe that it is now discontinued

This review is from: Cats 2013 Mini Box (Calendar)
Purchased as a gift I found this calendar to be a little too small. The fridge magnet on reverse is very useful and the cat photos are great, but if an inch or two larger would be perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant OS X Mountain Lion, 11 Jan. 2013

Purchased book when buying new Apple iMac and dreading changing to new OS, but I need not have worried; this book answers every query and the illustrations are clear. The author explains every step, not only the simple set-up but more advanced options also.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Finlux!, 9 Nov. 2012
Having owned a wonderful 26" analogue Finlux for over 15 years which is still going strong with a Humax digi box, I decided to get a new set for the kitchen{bedroom. Looked at usual well known brands in the High Street, and wasn't unduly impressed, and then came across Finlux Direct at Amazon. Did a bit of research and found out that Finlux now made in Turkey not Finland, but most reviews favourable apart from sound quality, but that is a common fault of TFTs and easily rectified with a pair of cheap USB speakers. Also amazing price for full HD and built in DVD player! I ordered set Monday and it arrived Wednesday morning. Easy to set up with auto tuning and picture is sharp and colours pleasantly neutral, not garish but easy to adjust if necessary. Will have to wait and see as to reliability. Overall I'm really pleased with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Penguin dictionary of surnames, 11 Aug. 2010
The book was in excellent condition which was not fully explained in the description, nor was the publication date. Otherwise very pleased with my purchase; it is well written and clear and concise. I have only managed to find one surname that is not included (Gopsill). Recommended reading for any genealogist or simply anyone with an interest in the origin of British surnames.
