Challenge Salmon and Whitefish Dog Biscuits, 300 g
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars My dog is delighted with them., 15 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A British product. Grimsby made from Grimby's fish. My Labrador loved them. I don't know how much of a recommendation this is for other dogs bearing in mind Labradors eat anything, anytime. Not too fishy smelling and good as a treat or a training aid.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love these books, 15 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another great Pat McIntosh book. Though these might work as a stand alone I think, having read them all, that you would be better to start at the beginning with The Harper's Quine. Each book really follows on from the last in terms of Gil's relationships, sometimes there is obviously only a few months between each book. In terms of their time.
Gil Cunningham has more problems to solve with the help of his young intelligent wife, his father-in-law and sundry others from his household. By reading the other books you'll know the characters and get to know them better and better.
Her writing is a joy and this is one book where description of surroundings is to be savoured and not rushed through.
I am definitely a fan.

This is handy for packing as it comes in a sturdy case. Apart from the 'wand' there is a selection of thicknesses of brushes to use. I would have liked it just to have brushes of the one colour as some were unusable being too thick. So it loses a star for that. But Curaprox is a good make and I would recommend this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moses Basket Mattress, 15 Dec 2014

This seems to be of good quality and it washes well. Fits nicely into the Moses basket, though would go into a pram as well. Generally very happy with the product.


The Feast of Artemis (Mysteries of Greek Detective Book 7)
The Feast of Artemis (Mysteries of Greek Detective Book 7)
Price: £1.54

5.0 out of 5 stars Another feast of a plot for the Fat Man, 14 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love these books. Anne Zouroudi is a great storyteller. I've never been to Greece but each time I read her books I'm there.
The fat man is a super character, mysterious, somewhat otherworldly. Wanting peace and harmony but making sure that those who need to, pay for their misdeeds. And in this book we find he has a brother, who is nothing like him.
I hope Ms Zouroudi continues with her Hermes Diaktoros books, I'm a fan.


Small Engine Repair [2006] [DVD]
Small Engine Repair [2006] [DVD]
Dvd ~ Iain Glen
Price: £15.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely story, well acted, 14 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a smashing wee film about finally taking that big step that could change your life forever, or not. It concerns a group of Irishmen living in a small rundown town. One, Steven Mackintosh, runs the small engine repair with his son, who longs to break away as much as his father longs for him to be part of his business and to some day take over. The other, Iain Glenn, is a singer and songwriter in his spare time who dreams of playing to more than a handful of folk in the local pub, though he is nervous and wary of even doing this. He moves to the Small Engine Repair when he loses his job and then finds out that his wife is being unfaithful. Into this tight little group enters another 'old pal' just out of jail after serving time for a hit and run accident. And he wants to know which of his pals shopped him to the police.
It is well acted especially by Glenn who has a pretty good singing voice, and by Mackintosh both brilliant actors in anything they do.


THE CASE OF THE PIG IN THE EVENING SUIT (Dumfries Detective Book 1)
THE CASE OF THE PIG IN THE EVENING SUIT (Dumfries Detective Book 1)
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Jin Johnstone initially came across a little like Brian Servant, 14 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was an interesting read. I found it just by chance and decided I must have it as I am originally from Dumfriesshire and who could pass up a story about a 'detective' from Dumfries, of all places.
The story itself was not your usual run of the mill detectives stories. Jin Johnstone initially came across a little like Brian Servant, if you've seen the TV series starring the marvellous Brian Cox. Jin's mind meanders all over from one notion to another then back to the first. To begin with you think it is odd but you soon warm to him and his bachelor ways. You get to know some of the friends he still has from school days and they are quite appealing.
The story has quite a few strands running through it, different things that Jin works through, some related to the main story, others nothing to do with it. You think you have the main plot sorted only three quarters the way through the book and wonder to yourself, well what is he going to fill the rest of the book with. But wait, there's more. Poor old Jin finds himself in deep bother more than once. Someone does not like his meddling, or is that quite a few people who don't.
Yes, this book is not your run of the mill detective story, but then again it sort of is. The author asks you not to stop with this book as there are two others in the series that carry on with Jin and his perplexing enquiries and his and his friends problems. So I am off to get the next one, The Case of the Colourful Clothes and Kilts. His titles are most intriguing. And though it is unnecessary to be a Doonhamer to appreciate this book, it was nice to read about places I once knew so well.

I started many years back with Curaprox. I recently tried one easily available from my chemist. After one use went straight back to Curaprox again.

I was quite surprised how small the bottle was. However, you don't need to use much so I can see it lasting quite some time. I am very pleased with the productand actually the wall size makes for something easy to pack and store. Would buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A range I am growing to like, 14 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like the Nivea Pure and Natural range, especially for use in these wind/central heating skin drying days of winter.
I also like the cleanser which is thick and soothing on dry skin just like the body lotion. The body lotion is absorbed quite quickly and has a nice silky feel.
