Falling In Love Is Wonderful

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate Jazz vocal album., 18 Dec 2013
If you like this sort of music, and think that you have enough recordings, and you already have the best, and your personal favourites, please think again. You will be swept away by this fantastic selection of songs, all given new life, and more heart, by the unique vocal talents of Jimmy Scott.
I was lucky enough to see him live at Ronnie Scott's club in Soho, on two occasions. They are still the best gigs I have ever been to, in my 62 years.
I have insufficient words to say how haunting and timeless this CD is. If I could only ever keep one, from my collection of many hundreds of recordings, from the 1920's, to today, in all genres, it would have to be this one.
I rarely use the word, but it really is flawless.


Shaver Adaptor (2pin To 3pin) 1amp
Shaver Adaptor (2pin To 3pin) 1amp
Offered by Empower Digital
Price: 1.05

5.0 out of 5 stars If you need one..., 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can you say about this? Everyone needs one, at some time in their life, when that new item is supplied with foreign wiring, or a hotel supplies a shaver socket. If you have need of one, this is as good as any out there. Furthermore, it is good value, and despatched in time. Fair enough. No quibbles from me.


VO5 Extreme Style Break The Mould Gift Set
VO5 Extreme Style Break The Mould Gift Set

5.0 out of 5 stars At last! A useful gift set., 9 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At this time of year, all the big companies are churning out countless gift sets of their products. For most of these, the contents are destined to be given away, or even thrown away; full of useless items that they could not shift throughout the year, with the addition of one eye-catching main product. This VO5 set breaks this mould (pun intended) by offering two products that are not only useful, but will actually be used. It is good value too, hence five stars.
If you want to give a gift that will actually be popular, you can do no wrong with this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's a big boy now, 9 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As my Sharpei dog is now 'officially' fully grown, (at least according to our Vet) I was keen to try out this Adult Dog recipe from Purina. I like the fact that the chunks/pellets are not uniform, as it is obvious that the dog notices this, and chews them a little longer. He has eaten this food today without hesitation, so I take this as a sign that he is more than happy. In which case, so am I.


Dettol Complete Clean Green Apple Floor Wipes 15 Pieces (Pack of 3)
Dettol Complete Clean Green Apple Floor Wipes 15 Pieces (Pack of 3)
Price: 4.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick solution for tiled floors, 5 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These come in handy for giving tiled floors a 'once-over'. Ideal for a quick clean up of spills, muddy feet (or paws) and for use in between deeper cleans, perhaps with a steam cleaner. The packet re-seals easily, and the remaining wipes are kept fresh and moist, at least so far. The aroma of the 'apple fresh' is pleasant, and does not linger too long. A useful addition to the under-sink cupboard, from the old and trusted brand of Dettol.

**Note to Vine** The request stated 'Pack of 3' but only one pack was received. Just for your info.


Dettol Complete Clean Mould and Mildew 750 ml (Pack of 3)
Dettol Complete Clean Mould and Mildew 750 ml (Pack of 3)
Price: 10.44

4.0 out of 5 stars Four-star cleaner, 5 Dec 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This product does what it says. Reliable and thorough cleaning on lots of different surfaces. It dropped one star, as it did not deal too well with some ingrained discolouration, caused by mould, on sealant. However, this may also be due to the nature of the rubber compound, so not a great problem. There are many other products that work well, but this has the well-known brand name of Dettol, so comes with peace of mind, and experience behind it.

**Note to Vine** This said 'pack of 3' on the request, but only one was supplied. Just for your info.


Braun Satin Hair 7 ST710 Iontec Straightener
Braun Satin Hair 7 ST710 Iontec Straightener
Price: 39.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Value for money straighteners- so I am told!, 30 Oct 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I must confess to having to turn to my wife for a full test of this product, as I have little hair left to straighten. Braun is a reliable company, well-known in the field of grooming and personal care products, and these straighteners are no exception. They are not the brand leaders, as that claim is made by a company with three letters in their name, who I will not advertise here. However, those are hugely more expensive than the Braun item reviewed here, and do much the same job, for much more money.

These feel well-made, and have a good balance of weight to usability. They are ready to use after a speedy heat-up, and seem to straighten the hair as well as any others that also to do this job, and better than some. The claims that they are kinder on hair are hard for me to comment on after a couple of trial uses, so cannot be verified here. They are priced in the mid-range, and that is how they should be perceived.
And there is not much wrong with that, let's face it. Hence five stars, as they do work, and do what they claim to.


Dinosaur Christmas
Dinosaur Christmas
by Jerry Pallotta
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.42

4.0 out of 5 stars Good twist on Christmas books., 26 Oct 2013
This review is from: Dinosaur Christmas (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a slim paperback, but printed on quality paper, so should last the course. The illustrations are first class, and all the detail of the many dinosaurs featured, is well-rendered, and colourful. They are drawn as they are believed to have looked, so no silly exaggerations are there, to potentially spoil enjoyment.
The traditional story of Santa and his reindeer gets a new twist, as he tells how he tried using different dinosaurs in the past, and how he eventually settled on the reindeer. This will make a good bedtime story book, as each chapter deals with different types of dinosaurs, and has just enough text.

The dinosaur names will make for some challenging reading, for both older children, and parents alike, but should add fun to a child's overall experience of this book. Something different, in a market where so much is the same. Recommended, though only four stars, as it is very slim!

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit too round..., 1 Oct 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is called a round brush. but it is a bit too 'round'. It is large, and difficult to operate, for normal, bobbed, straight hair. My wife assures me that it is definitely a quality item, but only really suitable for longer, or curly hair. If she had such hair, she would no doubt be very excited about it, and it may have got more than three stars.
Longer haired, and curlier haired people, take note; possibly one for you.


Remington B95T53 Kerartin Therapy Round Brush
Remington B95T53 Kerartin Therapy Round Brush
Price: 9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as the hairdresser's?, 1 Oct 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I had to pass this brush to my wife to review, as I have what is left of a man's hair, after 61 years!
She was very pleased with the quality, and said that it was as good as the brushes used by her hairdresser. It is sturdy, easy to hold and use, and seems like a very fair price, for a quality product.
I suppose that none of us can ask for much more that that. Might have had five stars, but she decided that it was 'not perfect'.
