5.0 out of 5 stars Pointer pouch, 29 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great case for protecting your glasses against minor bumps and scrapes, made of good thick neoprene and securely stitched together. The pale blue side has a picture of an orange and white pointer (just like ours) on it so this made a good value and very individual extra birthday present. Comes in a sealed plastic bag, with quick delivery from the seller in a small padded envelope.
Very pleased with this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Figure eight headcollar, 29 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very soft and stretchy tubular figure of eight head collar that is easy to put on the dog once you have the knack and provides an effective means of stopping our young pointer pulling like a train. Good lead length once the head collar is on too, ending in a loop of the same fabric, so is easy on the hands. You can also set it up as a slip lead as a quick and easy option.
The dog goes submissive once he has one of these on and walks naturally and easily without any excessive pulling or 'crab crawling' and is easily brought under control with a light touch. Doesn't ride up into the dog's eyes or rub his skin.
Very pleased with this - definitely one of the better versions we have tried.

5.0 out of 5 stars Figue of eight softex headcollar, 29 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have tried a number of head collars and harnesses for our 'pully' young pointer and this is by far the best so far. Soft fabric, quite wide at 3/4" and a good thickness of material, permanently set into a figure of eight and a good length of lead (over 4ft) ending in a hand loop. Dog goes submissive when the head collar is put on and walks naturally without pulling. If he does make a bid for a hedge or squirrel then the lead gives instant control with a light touch. Doesn't ride up into the dog's eyes, and doesn't rub his skin either. For extra security, and in the very unlikely event he ever manages to pull the headcollar off, we have bought a 'Halti-link' (also available on Amazon for a couple of quid) which fastens to the fabric strap under the chin and clips to his main collar.
Very pleased with this, have already ordered another as a spare, and would thoroughly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crunchy fish biscuits, 27 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tiny little black fish-shaped biscuits made from 80% salmon. The dog absolutely adores these, crunching them on their own, or mixed with other treats to add some variety. Will definitely order some more and would wouldn't hesitate to recommend these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small but mighty, 27 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tiny little pen that slips in your pocket, purse or bag for when you want the fountain pen experience without the bulk. All metal construction with a cap that screws onto the barrel to make a secure seal to stop the nib drying out, and posted onto the other end to make a slim pen approaching full length (and so making it much easier to handle and write with). There is a Kaweco logo on the end of the cap, otherwise a smooth black finish to the whole pen.
The EF nib is beautiful to write with, very smooth and leaves a good consistent line on the page, and the barrel takes a short international cartridge.
Great as a back-up or for an organiser - lovely little pen that oozes quality

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine writer !, 27 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely contemporary fountain pen, extrememly light weight and very slim in a carbonised finish with matt finished Duralinium cap end and clip. Very comfortable to hold in use, is such a smooth writer with the fine Tombow nib and doesn't dump too much ink on the page. Cap fits nice and securely with a satisfying 'click' and posts easily on the metal end of the barrel, protected by a black o-ring. Takes full size standard international cartridges (or two little ones of course)
You hardly notice it is in your shirt pocket, but the sprung clip holds it nice and securely.
I am delighted with this pen and would thoroughly recommend as both functional and stylish

3.0 out of 5 stars Soundtouch portable WiFi system, 27 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It seems strange allocating only three stars to a product from a manufacturer like Bose, but I have to say I was disappointed in the funcionality of this system - not so much a music system as an expensive set of small wireless speakers.

On the plus side:

- It looks nice quality and feels reassuringly heavy in black plastic and fabric speaker covers
- It found my wireless network straight away, no problems at all
- You can connect via an ethernet cable if you don't want/have wireless
- The app downloaded to my PC with no problems, and on-screen set-up instructions were easy to follow
- You can connect an external drive via an audio cable (not supplied)
- The sound is good (not great) - very bass-heavy by default, but you can adjust that in the system settings

On the down side:

- Why would you want patchy / intermittent internet radio streaming over WiFi when you could just plug in a DAB radio and get brilliant sound ?
- Setting up playing a music library is frustrating to say the least, and I still haven't fully got round the issues.
- There are no instructions with the system bar how to download the SoundTouch app. User manuals are accessible from within the app once loaded, but I have to say I found them pretty useless, especially for things that are difficult or going to cause you issues.

So, though it pains me saying so being a Bose fan, this could have been SO much better and if I were you I would spend your money on something else


MiniSun 4w LED SES E14 Golfball Light Bulb - 6500K Cool White/Daylight
MiniSun 4w LED SES E14 Golfball Light Bulb - 6500K Cool White/Daylight

5.0 out of 5 stars The bright stuff !, 18 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sometimes difficult to find cool white led bulbs in this size - well look no further ! We have six of these to light the kitchen, in sets of three, so you end up with 120W equivalent output per set for only 12W consumption. The cool/daylight instant illumination (there is no 'warm up' time) is perfect for cooking/working rather than a softer light for relaxing. They also make an ideal bulb to use when reading or sewing.
Seem robustly made, with a pearlescent hemisphere sitting in a tough ceramic base, and easy to screw into a fitting even with quite a narrow glass shade.
Each bulb comes in a box with bubble wrap inside, so all eight I ordered arrived intact - thank you seller !
Very happy with these, having tried a few other makes, and would thoroughly recommend.

3.0 out of 5 stars Webbox lick-e-lix, 12 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The box contained 5 sachets (4" x 1") of this yoghurty cat treat for review. Both cats seemed to like it very much, either on its own as a late-night treat, or on top of their regular food, so no issues at all with that side of things. Quite sloppy to squeeze out, with a very strong 'stale cat food' smell so not all that pleasant to handle and dispense. Have tried other treats that they like just as much, and are much better value for money, so we will stick to those thank you very much

5.0 out of 5 stars Bose Bluetooth Headphones, 11 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Everything about these headphones oozes quality, as you might expect from a manufacturer like Bose. Supremely confortable to wear, with soft fabric pads cushioning against your ears, good positive size adjustment by a ratchet mechanism into the (nicely padded) headpiece, and robust hinges and swivel joints to ensure the phones sit snug and flat against your ears. The earpieces fold up into the headpiece to fit into the supplied soft zipped pouch for carrying or storage. Can be charged via a computer USB lead, or any USB wall charger - I use my Amazon kindle charger and it works absolutely fine - battery indicator shows red if low, amber if only part charged, through to green when fully charged. A full charge lasts around 15 hours according to the blurb, and I can believe that. There are volume controls on one of the ear-pieces, along with a function button allowing you to swap between paired devices (to answer a phone if you are listening to music, for example), and a built-in microphone on the right earpiece for you to have a two-way conversation (works fine, though you have to speak clearly for it to pick up)
Simplicity itself to pair with your Bluetooth-enabled device - pushing and holding the on/off switch to a third position puts the phones into pairing mode, and they recognised my Kindle Fire HDX in seconds, telling my I was now paired with the device, even using its personalised name. You can pair up to eight devices, and it recognises the first two automatically.
I am using this mainly to listen to the music collection on my Kindle, and to my mind the sound quality is superb, with the added benefit that you can get up and wander around to make a brew, or whatever, while continuing to have great music fed to you - the link works well upstairs, in adjacent rooms and even in the garden, while your player sits in the lounge, or wherever. There is also a direct wire link connection to your player for when your headphones aren't charged or if you don't have a Bluetooth connection (you can't use the headphones while they are charging)
Very, very pleased with these, and would thoroughly recommend them - very much a case of you get what you pay for, and these are worth every penny in my opinion
