5.0 out of 5 stars Keeping tabs on your steps couldn't be easier, 2 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I particularly like having a video to watch as well as the written word. I could hear the words, understand what the person was saying and the instructions were easy to follow.

This made setting up the Pedometer very easy. Obviously getting the size of one's stride is vital if one wants accurate readings and it couldn't be easier.

It is a no nonsense, no fuss piece of kit. It tells you how many strides you have tyaken each day, converts those strides into calory losses, distance you have walked and the length of time you have walked.

This information is available for 7 days so you can try and beat the previous days figure if you have a competative nature. The device also keeps a total of the numbers of steps one takes.

I don't know how long this information is available becasuse unfortunately I pressed the Reset button by mistake and lost all the cumulative step data. This is the only downside I have come across.

A bit of advice – When putting the device into the holder make sure the part you press to open the clip is on the opposite side to the Reset button, because guess what? Yes you will do what I did and press the button in mistake when you clip the pedometer to your clothing.

A very useful and easy to use piece of equipment which I would recommend to anyone thinking of buying a pedometer


Grey's Anatomy - Season 1-9 Complete Box Set [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Why I bought Grey's Anatomy, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found Grey's Anatomy on Box sets on Sky and got absolutely hooked! I was merrily downloading and watching, I got to episode 18 series 6 when - shock! horror! - Sky had removed the series from Box Sets.

It would appear than many viewers were experiencing the same symptoms of loss and Sky had told us they would bring it back - but when? I couldn't wait so off to Amazon I went.

But why did I become hooked on the programme?
The story lines, the development of the characters, the humour and the excellent dramatisation of traumatic events.

Ok there are some silly bits which may not be that realistic but they are insignificant in the overall scheme. The programme is in it's 10th series and I don't think they have repeated any of the story lines.

If you like hospital drama and don't mind seeing blood then you will enjoy Grey's Anatomy. There is also some very fit eye candy too!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good 'Starter' reference book, 30 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This little book is packed with tips and ideas for not only the newcomer to gardening but for seasoned gardeners who just want to dip into a particular chapter.
What I like is being able to click on the chapter headings and then you are taken to the place you want to look at. Gardening is a huge subject and the author probably had difficulty in deciding what to leave out. She has made a very good job of condensing the subject as she has given the reader a taster of what is involved in gardening. If they become 'hooked' they can then find more extensive information on a particular subject they maybe interested in.
The book is easy to read as it has a nice relaxed style, peppered with experiences of and anecdotes from the author. Some lovely photographs and a very good reference section at the end.
It would make a very good stocking filler!

5.0 out of 5 stars An authentic Ice Cream Recipe book, 4 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Ices Italia (Paperback)
Ices Italia is an excellent book not only for the recipes it contains but the pictures and the history of ice cream from Italy. We are talking about the genuine Italian Ice Cream here.
The first part covers the rules governing making the best Gelato, then there are 4 chapters containing the recipes to make iced drinks, sorbets, ice cream and iced desserts. The fifth chapter gives you a number of recipes of foods to make to eat with your ice cream. All-in-all a very comprehensive book.
It should contain a word of warning though - this ice cream can easily put on weight!

5.0 out of 5 stars A readable read, 31 Aug. 2010
This review is from: The Oracle's Secret (Paperback)
Anthony Fernando is an excellent teacher - gives clear, understandable information, with no jargon and The Oracle's Secret is no exception. It is described as a fable, I like this format as it can be read and understood by any age group. Do not assume that a fable means "fairy story" and therefore a myth, fantasy, pipe-dream what ever. The message within the story is powerful and attainable. It is very easy to read and(it took me a couple of hours to read it) as you go through it you can picture the journey Taran takes.

If there are things in life you want to achieve, by reading this book, you will know what to do to achieve those things. Be warned though, you are going to have to take some action to achieve them. The great thing is this book is your guide if you follow the instructions within. Enjoy and here's to your success. A great gift for a child or teenager.
