This review is from: Crocs Unisex Classic Clog (Shoes)
Crocs, love 'em or hate 'em? I wear mine in summer at home out cycling, on the beach or walking. In winter with a pair of thick socks they are fine. I have 'posh' crocs for posh outings and no one notices the difference. They seem to be comfortable for all foot shapes.


Shake Hands With The Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda
Shake Hands With The Devil: The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda
by Romeo Dallaire
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.69

4.0 out of 5 stars Shake Hands with the Devil, 20 Nov 2013

This is a detailed and personal account of the nightmarish events in Rwanda during the conflict beteween Tutsis and Hutus.
The frank telling of some events make it an uncomfortable read; this compounded by accounts of UN personnel's disinterest and pettiness, and the self interest of other powerful factions involved. It demonstrates how normal humans can descend into using subhuman tactics for their own ends. Not for the fainthearted.

Sicily-Rock: Sicilia - sport climbing . San Vito lo Capo . Castelluzzo . Custonaci
by Karsten Oelze
Edition: Perfect Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Sicily-Rock sport climbing. San Vito lo Capo, 20 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A useful guide to sport climbing in an area that is rapidly becoming the in place for 'rock jocks' but with plenty of more modest challenges for ordinary mortals and children.. The route descriptions and locations are accurate but some of the tracks to access the climbing areas have changed and were no longer viable (Feb 2012) The gradings are consistent with lthe rest of Europe. Each route has the important information of Grade, length and number of quickdraws required.


Crete: The Battle and the Resistance
Crete: The Battle and the Resistance
by Antony Beevor
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Crete the Battle and the Resistance, 20 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beevor does it again!! As much detail as one wants without being dull. The description of the people involved, Newzealanders, Australians, British, German, Greek and most importantly Cretan, gives an insight into their background and cultures and how it affected the outcome of this battle. It reads as an accurate and unbiased account of the events which occurred in Crete before and during the German occupation. I recommend this to all my clients in Crete

5.0 out of 5 stars Speedo Aquabeat., 20 Nov 2013

This is easy to charge, load with music, language lessons or other audio material.. After some fiddling one masters the best way to wear the earphones in the water. The sound reproduction is good and the controls are few and simple even for this Ludite. One drawback was when I accidently dropped this on the poolside it fell apart and was irrepairable. Now on my second Aquabeat I take a little more care. It takes the boredom out of the daily swim.

This review is from: Wild Flowers of Crete (Paperback)
Undoubtably a comprehensive academic contribution. However for the lay person, the lack of any comprehensible cataloguing, except for the index of Latin Names, means this edition is not much use to the wanderer who wants to itentify what he is looking at on this wonderful island..

For those who have not yet cracked the mysteries of the cryptic crossword this volume will gently introduce you to the various clues and how to recognise them. For the experienced cryptic enthusiast there is usually, in these pages, some extra tips which help with those final unsolvable answers.
As my first copy was falling apart with being used and abused in various locations, I now have a mint edition to start all over again.

One has to be careful when fixing this to the windscreen or it can fall off. It is a bit too fragile for me so no longer in use. Using the Plantronics Headset means I no longer need a phone mount

I found this headset easy to fit and comfortable to wear. The sound is good without overpowering olther noises one needs to be aware of when driving. Having few controls it is easy to use.
