Good mat. Got it for my dog to stop him sliding all over the kitchen floor, as he's getting a bit old now with arthritis and finds it difficult to get up otherwise. The mat hoovers off well and remains in place on the floor without sliding.

Lapulga Beige - Long Hall & Stair Carpet Runner

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice attractive design, good material., 12 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice attractive design, good material. Took a couple of days to flatten out properly after being rolled up for delivery. Does not slip on tiled surface. The carpet is fairly thin, but this is a plus because our utility room door can close over it without catching the carpet. Pleased with purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant coat. My dog loves it, 21 Feb. 2015

This review is from: Dog Coat 2 In 1 Green 28" (Misc.)
Brilliant coat. My dog loves it, he really wags his tail when I put it on him, and he seems all puffed up and proud when he walks along wearing it. The front part that goes between his legs really helps keep mud off his chest and front under-belly. The inner removable fleece soon becomes matted with his malting fur, but that is to be expected and happens with any kind of material and clothes. Dog hairs!!


Road and the Ring
Road and the Ring
by A.Sylvia Brocklebank
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars I lived in the same house as the author, 21 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Road and the Ring (Hardcover)
I found this to be a fascinating read, a window onto olden times and ways just as the motor car was being invented, and when horse driven stage coaches were the way to travel any great distance around England.

The main (tenuous) reason I bought this book was because as a child (7-15) I used to live in a large country mansion where my parents worked called Wing Grange in Rutland, which, many years earlier, is where Agnes Sylvia Brocklebank (the author of the book) also used to live during the latter half of her life.

Her book makes a couple of interesting references to Wing Grange which I made a connection with and found interesting (for instance when her two favourite horses passed away, they were buried in one of the meadows we used to play in).

Overall I found the book to be an intriguing account of a woman doing a job (driving the team of horses to pull the carriages) in a mans world that she obviously got immense enjoyment from, and a world in which she quietly stood up for herself and proved she could be just as competitive as the men. I would have liked the author to have revealed a little bit more of her self to show her own character more, and in some places the book is a bit dry and technical in relation to the methods used for harnessing and driving the horse teams, the competitions she took part in and the routes traveled. I suppose this is perhaps because it was written in an era when women were more oppressed and hence Sylvia took a professional stance on the book content. One passage in the book I quite liked briefly describes her enjoyment of traveling at night in the darkness, atop the carriage with the passengers and footmen but no lights, and only the moon and stars to light the way through the country lanes.

There are many interesting black and white photographs throughout the book of the people in her life, the carriages and the horse teams, and the places (stables and hotels) they traveled between, but although there are several pictures she is in, there are sadly no close up photos of the great lady herself. This is probably the most expensive book I have ever purchased! but it made a connection for me and satisfied my curiosity about a woman I had heard tales of as a child, and discovered more only many years later, now aged 52, by reading this book.

This is the second order we placed for this same toy because our parrot loves it and its good quality. But he is a wrecker, and within 3 days has already made a considerable impression on it. Its just what he does!

4.0 out of 5 stars As most other people report this is a great product, cuts out light, 16 Jan. 2015

As most other people report this is a great product, cuts out light, comfy on the eyes. Reason for not giving 5 stars is because the velcro fastener is a bit thick and slightly uncomfortable on the back of your head when laid down with head resting on a pillow. Maybe this will flatten a bit with use.
