Sagaform 75 cl Vacuum Flask with Two Mugs
Sagaform 75 cl Vacuum Flask with Two Mugs
Price: £25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent flask with two cups, 17 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a replacement for an old battered model. Two cups are so useful, there are not many flasks which offer two. The Sagaform has clean lines, no fussy bulky handle to get caught on things in my rucksack. The size is perfect for one Yogi Tea Himalaya blend. What's not to like? The only tiny minor issue is the valve, when I close it a few drops remain on the wrong side of the seal , I remember to tip that out after closing, in case the flask finds itself lying flat or upside down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective relief from insect bites, 31 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Zap-it works really well, I am not sure how, but for many insect bites it relieves pain and itching. Another effective device required batteries but Zap-it keeps working for thousands of times using battery-free piezoelectric so there is nothing to replace. I have bought several, to keep one in the car, the rucksack, the bicycle bag, and so on. Brilliant value and so effective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent basic lead, for iphone to car, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a perfectly good lead, which I wanted to connect my iPhone or iPad to my car audio. It does that job perfectly well, at a very reasonable price. You could pay ten times the price in some stores and get nothing more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent basic tester, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good if basic but certainly compact electric fence tester. If you are concerned about crossing electric fences which may or may not be live, or wishing to simply test that your own fence is working, this does the job very well.


Transforming Problems into Happiness
Transforming Problems into Happiness
by Lama Zopa Rinpoche
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.01

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting viewpoint, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book presents an interesting viewpoint. It is not directly about solving problems, but about transforming our approach to the world. If you are interested in Zen and philosophy, it is a worthwhile read.


China (Lonely Planet Country Guides)
China (Lonely Planet Country Guides)
by Damian Harper
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Valuable companion, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I spent three weeks in China, aided immensely by my friend spending six months in Tianjin University, without her Mandarin the tour would have been so much more difficult. However the Lonely Planet guidebook gives a wealth of detail, if there is one thing i would like to improve it is the number and range of maps. We stayed in a number of places taken from the Lonely Planet. I long to visit China again, and will definitely take this guide.

by Martin Baxendale
Edition: Paperback
Price: £2.69

5.0 out of 5 stars A great gift, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent bit of fun, nicely written in a mock-serious way without gong over the top. I have given several copies to parents!


Nothing Special: Living Zen
Nothing Special: Living Zen
by Charlotte Joko Beck
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Introduction to pure Zen without the superstition, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book introduced me to the principles behind Zen, without the mystique and superstition of Buddhism. Charlotte is completely matter-of-fact and understandable, a lovely Californian who approaches Zen from a Western position.

Anyone interested in religion should read the two books, "Nothing Special" and "Living Zen"
