The coffee itself is very good, but the last few containers bought have had loose inner seals. Presumably a production problem.

A lot of good sound advice, but no good to you unless you are prepared to exercise self discipline.

4.0 out of 5 stars Back to the UK then France again!, 16 Nov. 2014

A fine story which fully reveals the tensions of living near the enemy and the chaos of the battlefield in the era of fast moving warfare. It shows the adaptability of the soldier when things go wrong and how necessary it is to keep the eye on the objective not the plan. The bravery of the guys involved is in my estimation played down overmuch but that could well be due to the soldiers of that time having shared the air raids with the civilian population before going overseas and hence realising we were all suffering in our various ways.

A very versatile machine at a good price which fills the limited needs of the 90 year old dad and the more sophisticated needs of son, i've found the print facility surprisinly easy to master so far I've had no need of the copy facility.

As well as being a first rate detective novel this provides a fascinating insight into the lives of the bees and their keepers to whom we horticulturalists owe a great debt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Collapse of a civilization, 2 Aug. 2014

I'm about 50% through and find it gripping, it recreates, believably, the time when Roman rule in Britain was nearing its end and those in authority believed it couldn't be happening. A situation, perhaps, similar to that existing in Kenya at the time of the Mau Mau uprising and, possibly, even closer to home. I was so impressed that I checked to see if volume 2 was available; sadly, not yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Italy Occupied by the Germans and the Allies, 6 Jun. 2014

This review is from: The Villa Triste (Kindle Edition)
It was an unusual time in Florence with Italy having surrenderd to the Allies while the Germans refused to accept it and effectively occupied the country. The play of loyalty of those still supporting Mussolini and those delighted by the fall of Fascism provides great feeling of the tensions between families with some joining the Partisans or helping them and those who still thought the Germans could win. After the war we are regaled with a nice commentatory on human nature with many claiming to have been Partisans unmasked. The tension is retained throughout the book.
