3.0 out of 5 stars Butterfield 8 - Spanish DVD edition/una mujer marcada, 23 April 2014
There are too many confusing/conflicting reviews on this page and all different versions seems to be lumped together in the review. This is specifically for the Spanish import.

Firstly, being region 2, it will play on UK DVD players. The price is cheap (even cheaper if bought on amazon.es). Although the picture is shown as widescreen, unfortunately it is shown as a small strip but has black Borders all around. The Spanish subtitles are underneath the actual picture but cannot be turned off. The picture quality is watchable but not great. The menu has just 2 options, watch the film in Spanish, or English with Spanish subtitles.

The story of Liz Taylor as a 'good time girl' is very good and of it's time and of course Liz looks fantastic and so is the acting. Five stars for the film but not for this particular version. Good enough for a one off watch or for completists wanting a region 2 version, but certainly not worth buying for any serious film/Liz Taylor aficionado.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have a tacwise staple gun and this item was ideal for the staples I needed. The staples are strong enough for jobs I required, such as stapling chicken wire to trellis and doing general repairs on my avairy/chicken coop, but don't know how they would hold up in an industrial situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nifty little thing!, 11 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What a great little product! Extremely lightweight but very durable. Easy to refill staples and to use. Has safety lock facility.

I used mine for securing chicken wire to trellis in my chicken run and it was certainly up for the job and very quick and easy. I like time and energy saving gadgets!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rapesco stapler, 12 Jan 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very sturdy stapler and excellent if you have a number of sheets to staple. However, it's less suitable for a small number. It's quite a chunky stapler and difficult to handle so best to staple from desktop.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so spicy!, 30 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Unfortunately I was not completely satisfied with this 6 jar spice rack. The picture used to display the product shows bright and varied spices and herbs. In reality you get 5 green herbs and 1 brown one! Hardly exciting! The 6 herbs and spices have their names pre-printed on the top (coriander, marjoram, bay leaves, fennel, oregano and thyme) so even if you wanted to change the spices for different ones it would have the wrong name written on it. I thought the stand seemed rather plastic looking and the actual spice jars themselves looked a little cheap with the plastic 'stainless steel' effect tops. The jar sizes are good and you get a fair amount of herbs/spices but the selection is really poor and should have included some more colourful spices. Also the bay leaves are chopped?!?! I have never used chopped bay leaves in a recipe? The plastic nozzles on the jars rotate to allow a small or larger amount of spice, although I found it easier just to take the complete cap off. Perhaps a nice housewarming gift or for someone who may not do too much cooking!

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful gift and keepsake, 30 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great idea to capture baby (or 0-3) hand or foot forever on a Christmas decoration. The bauble is quite large and comes with tube of paint and roller. I would perhaps recommend using the foot on a younger uncooperative infant! The result may not be perfect but is a very sweet Memento.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cleaner for cider lovers!, 17 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Does what it says on the packet and Dettol already has a good reputation in germ control.

Wipes are hardy and durable. Had to give a good scrub over very dirty areas but it stood up to the task.

The apple smell is nice (and a welcome alternative to most citrus smelling cleaners), although the smell does not linger for long.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational book, 5 Dec 2013
This review is from: Amazing Spaces (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What a wonderful book! This is a great companion to the current TV show but also good as a stand alone book!

Though more likely to be purchased by those already familiar with the show, they will be aware it showcases the amazing acheivements of everyday people who have achieved incredible results from building, restoring, renovating and creating a new work, home or fun space!

This book is designed to amaze and inspire and is for dreamers and do-ers alike! It succeeds on every level. This is not a book of blue prints for peoples builds but rather stories of those who have succeeded in creating their dream space as shown on the TV show. Caravans, buses, beach huts, boats as well as new purpose built structures.

Filled with helpful tips and advice, this glossy hardback book is 190 pages of inspiration

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work for me, 19 Nov 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Now I know that I may not be the best demographic for testing this item, but hey, why should you ladies get all the good hair products! Haha. As a middle aged man with thinning hair I thought I would give this a go hoping for a miracle! Pantene has a good reputation and thought there may be some benefit. I used it for the prescribed 10days but all I found was that it made my individual hair strands look separate and gave an overall worse affect! Not what I had been hoping for! It did smell nice, but I have certainly got better results just using an off the shelf mousse on my hair. Good luck to those trying it, but it certainly did not work for me.


A Little Gay History: Desire and Diversity across the World
A Little Gay History: Desire and Diversity across the World

4.0 out of 5 stars Gays through the ages courtesy of the British Museum, 19 Nov 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Interesting little coffee table style book looks at Gay History based on historical artefacts and literature. More use as a curio than fact finding reference book. Each item usually has one full page of a picture and a couple of paragraphs about the object/time in history. Full of interesting facts from 9000BC to the present!

Probably a once read, but certainly is a good starter for further investigations and the author does give a list of further suggested reading. It will certainly inspire me to take a trip to the British Museum!
