The Illustrated Man (Flamingo Modern Classics)
The Illustrated Man (Flamingo Modern Classics)
Price: 3.63

5.0 out of 5 stars Tales of the Unexpected meets Lost in Space!, 26 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderful amalgam of sci fi and horror and a real period piece of the 60s depicting all the serious confusion and anxiety of that time such as the Cold War, the space race, racial inequality and exploitation and American domination. These stories are an historic commentary on the times, superbly written and still many topics relevant today as they deal with the unending dilemma of the human condition.
A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job!, 25 Aug 2013

This review is from: Slug Bell - Original Flower
Attractive way to get rid of these rampant pests. Easy to fill and love the fact that frogs and other wildlife can't consume the pellets as they are safely tucked under the bell. Very effective. My chrysanthemums were in tatters before I used this but the huge numbers of dead slugs I've seen around the bell, confirms its effectiveness. Looks pretty too and butterflies love to bask on it, probably due to the reflected heat off the metal. Will buy more to protect the rest of the border. Recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant recipes!, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great, easy to follow recipes from Mary Berry with lots of excellent tips from how to rescue a sunken cake, to suggestions for recipe variations. Her tray bakes are fail safe and I have made many for fetes and coffee mornings and are always well received. Thoroughly recommend this book which props up easily on a book stand when following a recipe while making.


Knight Crusader Set, With Two Swords And
Knight Crusader Set, With Two Swords And
Offered by GreatDeals4you

5.0 out of 5 stars Great item but word of caution!, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely play set to accompany a crusader outfit which I bought for my 3 year old grandson. However, the swords are made of very hard plastic and are quite long so are really only suitable for an older child who has been told not to hack at anybody with them or they could cause an injury. I ended up buying a soft foam "sword" but an older child would probably have a great deal of fun with them. I have put the swords away for a couple of years time!

My daughter and partner are enjoying much better nights sleep since I bought them this duvet. The differering tog values on each side, one cool, one warm, ensure comfort for both of them. It's lightweight and machine washable. Good value for money too.

Great little dressing up costume for my grandson which he loves. As a 3 year old, he's tall for his age so this 3 -5 year old size fitted him comfortably as did the boot covers which stayed up well. Great value and hours of play in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great everyday recipes!, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Using several of the Good Food cookbooks together with portion control, I have lost 6 stones in fifteen months. This book is as good as all the others with tasty, speedy, calorie counted recipes which are easy to prepare and very healthy. If you are being careful with your carb intake, I can recommend this book heartily.


Dough
Dough
by Richard Bertinet
Edition: Paperback
Price: 8.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Different technique!, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dough (Paperback)
For bread making novices or seasoned bakers alike, this is a great book and very practical. The British method of kneading with the heel of the palm, is replaced by a drop and fold technique which traps lots of air bubbles in the dough giving the characteristic light and airy continental breads such as French stick. The DVD is very good and it's easy to follow the processes which Bertinet demonstrates. Have made several types of bread from this book, all of which have turned out very well. One word of caution... Even though he advocates using dried yeast in the same way as fresh yeast, the dried type for hand baking which we can buy here in supermarkets, still needs to be activated with warm water and sugar as per instructions otherwise it won't work!
Apart from that proviso, I can heartily recommend this book.
