Children's Britannica (Complete set, Volumes 1-20)
by Robin Sales
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A set, or just a single volume ... that is the question., 18 Aug 2014
Take care when buying the set of Britannicas - some sellers are only offering a single volume rather than the 20-vol set. Maybe email them first to check if the description does not state "20 volume set"

The izzibuyer battery worked okay for a couple of months, but seems to be dying away in the space of a day or so (without being used much at all), which is a bit less than I was expecting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Software clash (XP operating system), 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What I like most about Logitech mice (and keyboards) is that you plug them in and all's fine. No issues, no functions not working... quite sleek.

Well, that was not the case with this rather expensive bit of kit. Plugged in okay and away it went, no troubles..... at first. Then I noticed strange graphic issues where the word or excel doc will almost-fully disappear, or the webpage graphics does something similar.

The only change was the Logitech mouse being added, so it is definitely a clash with the mouse software, messing up my MSOffice/XP system. And as I had confidently disposed of my previous mouse I am up a gumtree now, having to get used to this graphics mess up until I can get some off-peak downtime in which I will probably reload all the operating system and office software, etc etc etc. All in all, the Logitech reputation in my house has been well and truly killed off. Not a happy purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colour Blind Packaging, 6 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First off... I like the green tablets -- really helpful for sleeping.

But, what I find odd about this product is that the colour-use on the packaging -- it's a bit crazy.

They have GREEN tablets and RED Tablets. Fair enough.

On Back of cardboard box is a red panel, which discusses the red mineral tablets (the Original Menopause Tabs)
And there is a green panel which discusses the green Active Botanical Tablets.

That sounds alright so far. Green is always bio/plant/chlorophyll.

Er, but, actually.... the bio tabs are RED tablets. And the vit tablets are .... GREEN tablets.

If you are confused already.... well, that's what I am referring to.

On the FRONT of the cardboard box you have an image of the GREEN tablet beside RED writing about the Menoplause Original vit-Tabs. Underneath there is an image of the RED tablet beside green writing about the 'Active Botanical Tables.'

Phew!

And, inside we have the blister packs:
The foil backing for the red tablets blister pack, is....... GREEN with a description of the green BOTANICALS (this is on the red tablets blister pack. The one with the green foil on it.)
.
The foil backing for the green tablet blister pack is...... RED, with a description of the red MULTI-MINERALS.

Surely, some wally does not know his botanicals from his vit-minerals and cannot tell the difference between red and green. Or at least does not know anything sensible about "colour-coding".

I think it all went wrong when they decided to make the vit tablets Green, and later added the bio tablets into the same packet and colouring those bio tablets..... RED (red tablets). And it all went overboard since then with the packaging people as confused as anything.

Look, it goes like this:
Green is always bio/plant/chlorophyll - make the bio tablets green.
The vit-tablets can be whatever you like... blue, yellow, white etc. Anything but do not make them green if you have bio tabs in same packet.

Red foil on RED Tablet blister pack, and green foil on GREEN blister pack.

GREEN is the Botanicals and RED is the Vit-Minerals tab. That's looking sensible now.

OK, on the outside packet, keep the same colours. Green writing for the green tablets, red writing for the red tablets.

Easy, isn't it?


The NIV Student Bible: WITH Concordance
The NIV Student Bible: WITH Concordance
by International Bible Society
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars From the Introduction....., 26 April 2014
The bible is the most important book ever written – a gift to us from God, himself. Styles and tastes change, but people all through history have recognised the Bible's uniqueness. They have treated it with special reverence.


Yet, strangely, even people who value the Bible often fail to read it. Most Britons believe the Bible to be from God. But Gallup polls reveal that only a small percentage of them can name basic biblical fats, such as four of the ten commandments. Their Bibles sit somewhere on a shelf or coffee table, impressive to look at, but unread.


Christians we meet mention repeatedly their guilt about not reading the Bible consistently. They believe in the Bible. They expect to find help there. But they do not read the Bible nearly as often as they think they should.


Troubled by this reality, we began work on The Student Bible. Our aim: to produce an edition of the New International Version of the Bible that ordinary people could – and would – read on a regular, sustained basis. We used modern research techniques to try to find an answer to the question, “What keeps you from reading the Bible?” We discovered three main reasons. In developing this edition of the Bible, we worked hard to address those three reasons….

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough guys, 9 Feb 2014

This review is from: The Sweeney [DVD] (DVD)
They both look good, though Winston is looking like he is past cop retirement age (+50?). I also miss some of what he says as his voice is a bit well, it is rough and tough but also a bit weak in some ways. Nevertheless it is a film I have watched 4x so far. Good entertainment.
