Completing this jigsaw over a 2 week period was one of the most relaxing and therapeutic 2 weeks I have ever spent. The individual jigsaw pieces are made of a high quality thick and sturdy cardboard material. I hope to complete this particular jigsaw puzzle again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kong Black Dog Toy Extra Large, 10 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent product. It helps my food-obsessed, large Mastiff-cross puppy to work for his treats (and eat them slowly)! We fill the Kong with about 12 small dog biscuits, which he bounces on the hard floors. It takes him about 40 minutes to release (and eat) all of the biscuit treats. The sturdy rubber material of the Kong toy muffles the sound of the bouncing. This is one of the few dog toys that has survived his teeth and powerful jaws! Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Company of Animals Dog Boomer 10 inch Ball, 10 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent product. It has withstood the destructive power of the jaws of my large Mastiff-cross puppy and provides him with hours of fun in the garden as he tries to kick and bite this sturdy toy. This is one of the few dog toys that has survived his playful actions! I can't recommend it highly enough for high level energy large dogs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contemporary Expresso Cup & Saucer Set, 14 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sheer elegant simplicity of this contemporary expresso cup & saucer set (in plain white porcelain) adds to the pure pleasure of daily expresso-drinking! Also reasonably-priced. I will definitely be ordering more to make up a set of 6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hi-Tec Men's Eurotrek Walking Boots, 14 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Conducted extensive research before buying (reviewed over 100 brands of walking boots). Based on research, selected these walking boots.

Product Feedback (after 4 weeks of daily wear): Very good quality waterproofed leather. Boot lace eyelets & hooks also of high quality - hooks have rounded edges = no frayed laces! Very comfortable & great value for money.

12-Month Update (30 Sep 2010):
These boots are far and away the best boots I've ever bought. After a year of daily fairly-rough terrain walking, the leather still looks great, is still waterproof, very comfortable and the soles are hardly worn down.

Hi-Tec is to be congratulated for the Eurotrek Waterproof Hiking Boot (can't vouch for other models!). I would have no hesitation in buying an identical pair when these ones finally wear out. Verdict: highly recommended for daily moderate-level (3-5 miles on rough ground).

5.0 out of 5 stars First class guide to birds found in the British Isles, 29 Jun 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read the reviews and decided to buy the book based on the high proportion of 5* ratings. I was not disappointed!

The book is the size of an average paperback, has a protective clear plastic sleeve, glossy pages, stunning photographs & great summaries on key facts of interest about each bird - definitely the best 7.99 I've spent in a long time!

3.0 out of 5 stars Training Practice by Penny Hackett, 19 May 2007
This review is from: Training Practice (Paperback)
For those new to the science of adult training/learning this book provides a good overview of the various elements of training and the layout is logical. Unfortunately, it's very expensive for an overview - 27.99. I would advise having a nose through the local college of further education's library to see which books appeal based on readability, depth of information and additional reading references before buying any book. I would have given this book a 4 star rating if the price was under 15.
