Yaktrax Pro Traction Device Large
Yaktrax Pro Traction Device Large

This is the best traction device we have tried so far. It is good for soft or hard snow, ice, slush and also tarmac and indoor carpets, though as other reviewers have said not polished/tiled surfaces. The large size is a good fit on walking boot sizes 7 and 9. The Yaktrax website suggests measuring the circumference of your boot to check the sizing.

First time I've bought flour in a bag bigger than 1.5 kg so I hope it will keep. It makes excellent bread in my bread machine; usually mix 200g of this with 100g each of strong white and brown flour for a lighter texture.


Guernsey (inc Alderney, Sark and Herm)
Guernsey (inc Alderney, Sark and Herm)

Edition: Paperback

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite a good selection of walks with the right level of detail for the casual but interested visitor. Cannot comment on accuracy as our visit is planned for next month, but details such as bus timetable can be checked on-line. The book is only 64 pp including the index, and of this only p24-53 actually cover the 11 walks on Guernsey; however it will fit in a pocket. Most visitors will probably wish to obtain a better map of the whole island than the one inside the back cover. The maps of Alderney, Herm and Sark are excellent (only one walk is described for each of the smaller islands).

My dog (8 yr old mongrel bitch) eats this with great relish. I mix it about 2:1 with some other kibble from our local pet shop to give a bit of variety. It stays fresher if you get a pack of 2kg bags than one huge sack.

I'm not a competitive cyclist and just picked this up because it was cheap on Kindle. It was surprisingly entertaining. It's very well titled as it's about the crazy guys who raced, and a little bit about the organisers. Each year's race is described but not in too much detail, often just a highlight or two to illustrate the career of a star such as Eddy Merckx. There is some interesting detail on the sad history of doping in the race, but nothing on the technical development of cycling. I might watch a bit more of next year's Tour and understand what's going on.

This is a specialist publication for the scientific reader. It is the only comprehensive account of the geology of this interesting area of the Midland Valley of Scotland. It is partly out of date in that the stratigraphic terminology has been revised since publication, but is invaluable for its complete account of the Devonian lavas and sedimentary rocks. The chapter on the Quaternary also contains a huge amount of information not readily available anywhere else.

Just a quick read of cartoons and jokes. Not a great success on Kindle as the cartoons are not very well rendered on the screen.


From the Holy Mountain: A Journey In The Shadow of Byzantium
From the Holy Mountain: A Journey In The Shadow of Byzantium
by William Dalrymple
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, 28 Dec 2012

I bought this on the strength of good reviews as well as the interesting subject and I wasn't disappointed. An outstandingly good book about the early development of Christianity in the Middle East, and about how much/little remains of the Byzantine world (even less now no doubt, 15 years after his journey). Essential background reading for the interested traveller.

Probably the best map available; covers almost the whole country, not just the main tourist areas. One side has maps of the Nile valley from Alexandria to Aswan in 3 sections, the other side has most of the country (bit of desert in SW corner missing) and a street map of central Cairo.

What sets this book apart from the run of doggy stories is the lack of sentimentality. I found the accounts of police dog training and incident response quite fascinating. Most dog owners will completely identify with the handler PC Joe Sleightholm. The author gets inside the mind of the dog too. i didn't want this book to end.
