3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but there's a problem, 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very nice looking blind, which for the money, is excellent value - that is, as long as it stays up! There is one small flaw with the design in that the bracket at the pulley end is made of plastic that is not thick enough and is therefore a bit flimsy. The upshot of this design fault is that if you want to install it on the outside of the window recess, there is insufficient tension to hold the blind in place when the blind is drawn - i.e. it falls off. This may not be a problem if fitting inside the recess, but it is supposed to work both ways. The only solution is too glue the support bracket at the pulley end to the blind end-fitting [don't glue both ends]: for this you will need either a plastic cement glue or araldite [or similar product], as superglue doesn't work. Update: this kind of worked, but the pulley-end bracket just snapped off! My research suggests this is not an uncommon fault on many blinds (if not all), so no further reduction in my rating. But, I would advise, unless fitting into a recess, that you invest in a 25mm metal bracket repair kit from the outset [cost about £7] - this would still represent good value overall.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice for the money, but you may need to adjust your fittings...., 27 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nice solid glass shade, small and pretty: for the money [I paid £2.99 each, inc. delivery] these are good value. However, you may find that your light fixtures do not have a long enough screw to enable the fitting of these, as you will also require reducers because the hole for the light-bulb fitting is too big for the standard British light fixture. Reducers are fairly cheap, but replacing light fixtures does add to the price, especially if you can't fit them yourself!

This is a good size for the money and has a very nice bright and colourful layout, with lots of details and plenty of road. My 3 year old son absolutely loves it. However, the backing is a thin "foam-rubber" like substance, which may not age well; also, the surface is easily punctured, even by blunt plastic, which may limit its life span. That said, it has survived a month of daily play (and general abuse)and still looks like new - albeit with a few small holes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality appearance, 25 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nicely detailed and very sweet ornament, ideal for any elephant lover. This is bronze-effect resin with some weight, but not as heavy as a real solid bronze ornament - pretty convincing nonetheless. It is small to medium size - will fit comfortably in the hand. Reasonably good value overall.

A nice quality plastic swing bin. Calico is a creamy colour with a feint hint of olive green. 15l is quite small: 46cm in full height, but holds a reasonable amount of smaller rubbish items. Nothing fancy, just a nice little swing bin.


Who Was Jesus?: Conspiracy in Jerusalem
Who Was Jesus?: Conspiracy in Jerusalem
by Kamal S. Salibi
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly speculative, 4 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Salibi's theories are highly speculative - but what biblical history isn't? However, he makes some brilliant assertions which are highly credible; the only mystery is how he manages to maintain his own faith in the face of the "evidence" he presents - virtually no stone is left unturned. Exhaustively researched and well written [though look out for the occasional (and some very odd) typo's]; I can only concur with the other 5 star reviews.


Stranger in the Valley of Kings: The Identification of Yuya as the Patriarch Joseph (Paladin Books)
Stranger in the Valley of Kings: The Identification of Yuya as the Patriarch Joseph (Paladin Books)
by Ahmed Osman
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Convincing & compelling, 28 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have read quite a number of books relating to Old Testament historicity and this is one of the best. The hypothesis and research behind it are very convincing, but even if the association of biblical Joseph with Yuya should prove incorrect, the details and other theories proposed about Yuya's royal connections remain tantalising and deserve serious consideration. A small book, may be, but there is plenty here to excite the imagination of anyone interested in Egyptology and/or biblical history.
In my opinion, slightly more convincing than David Rohl's theory on Joseph and 4-500 years later, which unfortunately somewhat undermines most of Rohl's hypotheses, which are otherwise pretty compelling themselves - but they can't both be right? I guess that's what makes this such an interesting and exciting area of theoretical archaeology.
