Meguiar's Endurance High Gloss Tyre Protection Gel
Meguiar's Endurance High Gloss Tyre Protection Gel
Price: 8.46

5.0 out of 5 stars Great finish and far more economical than autoglym instant tyre shine, 10 Feb 2014
Like the title says it gives a great long lasting finish and compared to Autoglym instant tyre shine it is far more economical. You need a small sponge to apply it, a washing up sponge is fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars No doubt the truth but look deeper!, 24 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great book and not nearly as self centred as David Millar's. The writing is engaging and gives a genuine impression that it is a baring of the soul.

He makes a point late on in the book about the winning time up l'Alpe d'Huez in 2011 would have placed that person 40th in 2001.

Now consider the fact that Bradley Wiggins went nearly 4kph faster in the 2012 Olympics than Ekimov, Ullrich & Armstrong did in Sydney 2000.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic start to cycling, 3 Aug 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
My daughter got real confidence using this, she even went from a bike with stablisers to this and han't looked back since. Brilliant for getting them confident on a bike and not worrying when it wobbles for the first time as their balance is already developed.


Roberts Dreamtime DAB/FM RDS Digital Clock Radio with Dual Alarm
Roberts Dreamtime DAB/FM RDS Digital Clock Radio with Dual Alarm

2.0 out of 5 stars Good sound quality but VERY annoying., 19 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pro's:
Well made.
Easy to set up.
Good sound quality.

Con's:
Can't set the alarm without turning the radio on.
It doesn't matter what volume you have been listening at and turned it off on when the the radio alarm turns on it gradually increases to volume 20 regardless. I usually listen at 8 or 10 to give you an idea.
The display is very bright even on the lowest setting, you can turn it off but it's then a fiddle to find the button to check what time it is.

Would I buy it again? Sadly the answer is no.


Home Defence Ant Stop! Bait Station
Home Defence Ant Stop! Bait Station
Price: 2.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally effective, 9 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't praise this product enough. I had ants coming in to my house as I later found they are partial to sweet chilli dipping sauce! Despite throwing the sauce away and cleaning the cupboard with bleach they continued to use the same path.

I traced where they were coming in to the hose and then outside where the entrance to the nest was.

I placed one of these immediately outside the nest, covered by a tile so it didn't get wet in the awful April weather we've just had. The other one I placed just inside the house on their "path" to the kitchen.

3 days later, no trace of ants anywhere.

I don't know if there is any bait left in them but I have kept the traps where they are for now as they are hidden from view.

2.0 out of 5 stars As flawed as all it's predecessors, 11 April 2012
I have to confess I was anticipating a huge leap in performance compared to my Curve 8520 but this is just as flawed.

Fine for calls, emails & SMS but the browsing experience is TERRIBLE! An iphone on 3G is faster than this on Wifi!.

Don't be fooled by the claims of 'tabbed" browsing etc. it's so bad you'll want to walk to your local library to use the internet there.

No wonder BB is on it's @rse.

1.0 out of 5 stars OK for calls TERRIBLE for browsing, 7 Mar 2012
Had this phone for 18 months now. The full keypad is a bonus and it is pretty robust but... it is simply AWFUL for browsing. To put this in to context my colleagues iPhone 4 is faster using a 3G connection than this is using my home WiFi!

5.0 out of 5 stars Toastie Toez!!, 13 Jan 2012
Having suffered from cold feet when cycling, in particular toes, for years despite using all manner of overshoes, goretex socks and the like I couldn't believe how good these liners are.

Nice to see little touches like the extra layer of loops inside around the toe area.

Well worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars 9 years on, same old jokes, 20 Nov 2011
Very disappointed in this offering. I really enjoyed his first DVD but this is a rehash of the same old jokes with no real "new" material to speak of. Save your money!


Ju-jitsu (Kids Library of Martial Arts)
Ju-jitsu (Kids Library of Martial Arts)

Edition: Library Binding

2.0 out of 5 stars Very basic, 21 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very basic book really only suitable for someone who does not already do Ju Jitsu. The constant american-esque need to insert phonetic spelling is irratating.
