5.0 out of 5 stars Angled leaf collector long hnadled, 21 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works a treat. A great helper in picking up leaves, no more bending and attendant backache, no mucky gloves either from wet leaves.The slight angle on the handles makes it perfect to approach a heap of leaves holding the collector outwards while the two blades are level with the ground and grabbing a maximum amount of leaves, holding firmly together and lifting up into a wheelie bin once again the angled handles make for an easy transfer. Would recommend as a great labour saving device removing the chore element from leaf collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Towelling slippers, 21 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb for the purpose of bathroom wear, on getting out of the bath or shower with damp feet. I always use these until my feet are dry enough to put on socks. These towelling slippers are just great, being light and absorbent with plenty of ventilation. Value for money as they are easily disposable after use and cheap as chips to replace with a new pair.

Great spread for raking up leaves in awkward places and good reach. Light and easily handled while pulling back a good load of fallen leaves. The prongs are sturdy and workmanlike. Would recommend to anyone seeking to maximise their raking potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boots for bad weather, 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Snug as a bug in a rug. Having worn wellies for years and stoically endured cold feet as part of the contract it comes as a relief to put on some warm boots. The velcro opening helps getting the boots on but don't wear thick socks as well or you'll find the lining being pushed into the boot. If you intend to wear with thick socks, which I don't I'd get the next size up.

5.0 out of 5 stars HP air printer 6520 e all in one., 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I noticed that some reviewers who had the 6000 series printers were having trouble with paper jams. Paper has to be 'stacked' and 'feathered' before being placed in any type of printer and photocopier. Paper has two sides. A gloss side and a matt side. The printing should be on the gloss side. Stacking and feathering is like shuffling a pack of cards. Before loading new paper always open the stack by using the thumb to run the paper so that individual sheets are loosened, shake the stack and mess it up, then get it back into a square by banging the paper edges on the desk. This is supposed to stop sheets sticking together as when the machine tries to pull up two sheets at a time and gets jammed. I've assumed it is to do with static electricity causing the paper sheets to bind but I've never discovered if that is true.

I unpacked a securely and tightly fitting printer from the delivery box with the assistance of the wife. I had unplugged my old printer and kept the old power and usb leads in place. The printer is supplied with a power cable but not a usb cable. Maybe this is because it is wi-fi. I couldn't be bothered to faff with the wi-fi setup and discovered that I had to choose between one or the other. As I chose connect to the PC with usb cable I was informed that if I wished to receive updates automatically to the printer I had to dispense with the usb cable connection.

It took me a week to setup as it is virtually manual less. The supplied booklet turned out to be a couple of pages in every language under the sun, unlike the prevoius Dell printer which arrived with 132 page English owners manual, which i missed. I placed the CD in my PC but chose the on line set-up which went without a hitch, as the CD did not auto run.

So far so good. It switches off itself after 2 hours, again the choice is 2 hours or never, and nothing in between. it appears. The touch screen does need a firm contact not a light brush but it is intuitive. Unzipping the adhesive packing plastic tape meant that I dismantled the loading tray and was faced with the conundrum of pushing the top piece back which after some time I realised ahd to be pushed fully home to rest on the loading tray. Installing the ink required some thinking as well in the absence of a manual relying on pretty pictograms as a guide. The lack of a full maual means the loss of one star. What I do like is the double sided printing which again one has to work out for oneself, namely it prints one side then delivers half a sheet which it is not prepared to let go, refer to touch screen which says to turn the paper over then print again where upon the sheet goes back inside the printer. The specimen photo and photo paper produced a terrific print, so I'm looking forward to copying photos. Again because of the lack of instructions my first paper copy was lopsided, on examining the glass screen I saw a little arrow pointing into the corner so next time I pushed the paper to the corner, leaving a clear glass border on 3 sides.

UPDATE: No problems encountered. On saving ink and paper I have set the default printing mode as 'draft' with double sided printing. In Windows 7 go into Control panel - Devices and printers - open HP Photosmart - then select 'draft' and double sided, I chose to flip to long side. If one needs to alter this selection at the time of printing click 'preferences' in the printing dialogue box and select according to preference. I find 'draft' perfectly acceptable for everyday use and is saving ink at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars After the Arab Spring, 19 Jan 2013

A refreshing insight by an insider and written by someone who is not of the Western mainstream media who churned out nothing but pro Western propaganda during the so called Arab Spring. This appears to be the true story behind the headlines and is fully grounded in matters of fact not hyperbole. As I always suspected what I read in English newspapers was the official version of events which never reflected the true events on the ground. Thanks to the writer these untruths are exposed and another version, the truer version, of Arab history exposed for independent thinkers in answer to the official media.

Grand daughter loves it and reads it and plays the CD all the time. Couldn't find it in the High Street so glad to get it on line and earn some brownie points for myself.
