The Conquest of England

4.0 out of 5 stars Stodgy, but still valid history, 30 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This may have been written in the 19th Century, the style is a bit stodgy, but the history is still relevant. It contains information that I have not found from other sources.

1.0 out of 5 stars Trades description Act?, 26 Dec. 2011
This is called the Beauty of Bagpipes and on the cover talks about their stirring skirling music. What it doesn't tell you is that every track consists of a pipe introduction and then, to my horror, a rhythm section joins in. Not as a backing it is more a pipe backing to the tune. The CD has a great selection of pipe tunes, which is why I chose it. If you simply want bagpipe music I would advise you to look elsewhere. My Wife likes it, but she is English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solwise Homeplug Adapter - Twin pack, 28 Oct. 2010
Incredible! It really is plug and play! Unlike many things which claim to be, but need tweaking. It took all of 10 minutes to set this up, of which about 8 minutes was spent threading the ethernet cable through a narrow space behind my desk. Result instantaneous connection. As I am using Mac OS X (Snow Leopard) I can't use the CD to alter security settings as mentioned by one of the other reviewers, a minor point - but maybe Solwise can produce a Mac friendly version for a discerning minority.
Highly recommended - it has taken longer to write this review that to set up the network.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy Cutting, 17 Nov. 2007
Incredibly sharp and easy to use, it makes cutting anything like vegetables or raw meat and fish a pleasure. It is possible to cut extremely thin slices with minimal effort and very basic culinary skills. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to Solar observing, 26 Nov. 2001
Astronomers are nocturnal and tend to ignore our nearest star - the sun. Chris Kitchin has written an excellent and comprehensive introduction to observing the sun. He makes it interesting and also attractive, in that it can be done in daylight!
Solar observing is the dangerous side of astronomy. The sun can blind an unwary observer. This book strikes a fine balance between warning you of the hazards but managing not to scare you off.
Highly recommended.
