4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 13 Jun 2011
The product arrived quickly, well packaged. The colour was not quite the same as that depictd in the images. It fits the iPad2 well and there is no interference with any of the controls. The magnetic on/off element of the cover works well too. Early days but it seems to protect the iPad well.


Panasonic SD255 Breadmaker with Raisin/Nut Dispenser
Panasonic SD255 Breadmaker with Raisin/Nut Dispenser

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh Baking, 13 May 2010
I've had this breadmaker since March, having done research and finding that this one seemed to be the best on the market. This was my first foray into breadmakers, usually kneading by hand. The instructions with the manual and front panel are easy to follow - practically idiot-proof- whether making bread/dough with ready-made bread mixes or with the flour and yeast. Comes out perfect every time, much better than when I knead and prove it myself.

The breadmaker does take up a little space and when the bread is ready the inner container is very hot so you have to be careful how you take the bread out. The parts clean easily after a soaking for a short time in water. This is a robust machine that work well and does what it says on the box. I can't compare it to any other breadmaker but I love this one and the end products taste great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pink, pink, pink!, 16 Mar 2010
This was a Christmas gift for my niece. It was not expected until after Christmas but was delivered on time. My niece has gone on to the internet without any problems and has set up all her email, Skype etc. It has a trial 60 days of MS Office (Student edition). That's fine until one has to pay for the necessary software. My niece is in love with the netbook and is very happy with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pink Netbook, 16 Mar 2010
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my teenage niece. She absolutely loves it. Not just because it's pink but because of it's functionality. The day she got it she was able to set up her email and all the other software and sites she uses on the internet. She happily downloads images and uses the netbook for her studies also. The item was delivered on time and intact. All in all a very happy teenager.

1.0 out of 5 stars Over hyped, 29 Jan 2010
This review is from: Man Like I (Audio CD)
I didn't like this at all. Not sure what the music is supposed to be it is such an eclectic mix. Sure many will enjoy it but as someone who loves soul, jazz, R & B, gospel, funk, reggae this did nothing for me. Music is always a matter of personal taste and I just didn't like it on any level, even wiped it off my MP3. Sorry!

Bitches' Brew
Bitches' Brew
by Fred Khumalo
Edition: Paperback
Price: 13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars South Africa with a Jazz flavour, 29 Jan 2010
This review is from: Bitches' Brew (Paperback)
This story is set in the townships of South Africa and covers the many years and loves of the main female and male characters of the book, Lettie & Zakes. The characters love each other but can never really get it together. There is sexual violence, criminal violence in the book. Each chapter is named after a song by jazz trumpeter, Miles Davies, hence the title of the book. Music, shebeens and transient life/lifestyles pervade the themes of the story.

The South African author of this book quite rightly won the European Union Literary Award 2005 for this novel. It's a wonderful evocative book that lets you imagine the time & place the book is set in with the background of apartheid dictating the prospects of the characters. Highly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Love & intrigue in the church!, 29 Jan 2010
This review is from: Second Sunday (Paperback)
This story is about a baptist church whose pastor has just died suddenly less than a year before an important anniversary of the church. The men of the church board need to select a new pastor but the women decide they are not doing a good job in the selection process so decide to take matters into their own hands. There are love stories within the themes, a black woman passing for white, pregnancy, single mother, divorce. It is a quick easy read with a Christian based theme. Funny and sad in parts. It is not a deep complex book but still satisfying all the same.

George Foreman 10032 4-Portion Family Grill with Bun Warmer in Silver

5.0 out of 5 stars Grill away!, 29 Jan 2010
I received this as a gift and think it is a great addition to the kitchen. The grill gets hot fast on the bottom and the top. It cooks quickly and comes with a recipe book if you want to use that. Ideal for low fat cooking. It can be a little tricky to clean but not a huge problem. The grill is robust and sturdy too.


Saitek Expression Eternity Mouse & Mat
Saitek Expression Eternity Mouse & Mat

3.0 out of 5 stars Mouse, 29 Jan 2010
I purchased this item for the mouse rather than the mat. The mouse works well as it is plug & play. The cord could be a few centimetres longer to be perfect as I think it is slightly short for the way my PC is set up. Not used the mat at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soothing sacred music, 8 Mar 2009
This is a musical, orchestrated rendition of well known hymns. This is a CD for calm reflection. The previous reviewer is disappointed that there are no vocals however I would suggest that this is a strength of this particular offering.

I love it as it is a tool for my spiritual life and I use it as such. Others may consider the interpretation of the various orchestras and the quality of the renditions. It all depends on why someone would purchase this CD. You are either gonna love it or think it mediocre. I love it!
