BELL Striplights 284mm 60w Opal (BELL 02200)
BELL Striplights 284mm 60w Opal (BELL 02200)
Offered by The Lightbulb Company
Price: £4.17

4.0 out of 5 stars You may need to refit the diffuser before the light will work., 2 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently had to replace two bathroom lights. I bought one of these and a 7w Strip Lamp 284mm Energy Saving Light Bulb 2700k Light Bulb 8,000 Hours, both work OK.

When fitting one of them, I noticed a sticker on the light fitting "diffuser must be fitted for light to work", which was a relief because I was worried that the bulbs were defective because the other light fitting did not have a helpful sticker, and I had thought the bulbs were duff. Once both bulb and diffuser were fitted, the new bulbs worked.

Love this band. :-)

My current favourite on this CD is 'Let me do", but all the songs are good.

(I also like Stacey Kent's Raconte-moi...if you're in a music buying frenzy.)

I bought this and a Monument 1459W Master Plunger Sink and Waste Pipe Unblocker to replace our old plunger.

This plunger failed to clear the first blockage we have had since buying them, but the Master Plunger did the job. I suggest you buy that one, not this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not., 29 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like the looks of this strap, but having now owned it for 6 months, I've noticed that two or three times recently its managed to come undone. The tang somehow has pulled out. It's not so bad that I need to replace it, but it is something to bear in mind if you're shopping for one.

I do tend to wear the strap a little loose, so perhaps that contributes, but I don't recall having this problem with other styles of watch strap in the past.

I definitely would not use this strap with a watch of any cash or sentimental value.


Thera-Band Flex Bar, Yellow

3.0 out of 5 stars Item is OK, exercise routine uncertain., 14 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you already have weight discs at home, then a wrist roller might be a better choice.

--------------------
When I first received this flex bar, I tried to complete the 3 sets of 15 repetitions that seem to be the recommended routine for these tools. I managed 2x15 with a 1 minute pause between sets, and couldn't face a third set.

Re-reading the NY Times piece that is so often mentioned with flex bars the key line for me was:

"Beginners should start with three sets of five repetitions, adding more as the repetitions get easier, Tyler says."

well.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/08/25/phys-ed-an-easy-fix-for-tennis-elbow/

I've been following a daily routine with this for the past week, a few more reps each day, with a four minute rest between sets. I'm not sure if it's improving or aggravating my tennis elbow.

The original study suggests a 7 week course:

"Once the patients could perform 3 sets of 15, they progressed to the next color FlexBar®, indicating a higher intensity of eccentric resistance. The treatment continued until the patient had a resolution of symptoms, which occurred at an average of 7 weeks of treatment with 10 clinic visits."

The NHS website does not mention this as a certain cure.

One thing I have found helpful is a wheat bag. You put them in the microwave for 1 minute, and then have a hot pack to soothe your aches and pains. I have [[ASIN:B00IHY5EXY The Muscle Doctor]] one.

I bought this only intending to use the wheat bag (hot pack) bit, but having the cold gel option available, I've experimented with that too.

Disappointing. Not much cushioning.

EDIT
While the packaging is marked Velo Attune, the grips don't look quite like the picture that's currently associated with this item.

Link below to distributor's catalogue PDF. The grips I received look like Velo: 410461 on p.21 of the PDF.

EDIT 2
The picture currently associated with this item looks like the XLC Grips offered by Raleigh, their ref: GRG16G.

This review is from: Recettes faciles (Hardcover)
I'm currently working through a self-study french course, and I bought this french language cookery book in an effort to make using french more a part of my routine.

I chose this particular one by looking at Amazon's french website, and seeing which books were popular with french people. They ought to know which are the best ones!

1. So far I've only cooked one of the recipes (gratin dauphanaise). It went well. In the past I've used cream in this recipe, but following this book I used milk, and an egg!

2. I really, really, really like the format and layout of this book. At the back there's a table including all the recipes with grades for cost and difficulty so you can browse them and pick out recipes on those criteria.

It's well bound, and I think the print/colours used are nice.

Good decision so far. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough., 13 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for a MacBook Pro.

The cable is not long (50cms?). After 10 weeks use, repeated yanks have caused mine to start to break where it joins the earpiece. Using a coiled extender cable would probably guard against this happening.
