5.0 out of 5 stars my husband has had a sea fishing kayak for over ..., 20 Aug 2014
my husband has had a sea fishing kayak for over 2 years now and I bought one of these after his first trip out ,it is a must on any shoreline and copes well when going up or down the slipways and shingle on the beach. the only other alternative is to take all your gear off the kayak and carry everything which is awkward and time consuming this is just get out the car ,onto the trolley to the waters edge ,fold up and secure the trolley and go reverse on the trip in.

5.0 out of 5 stars need and want are two different things????? not in this case, 20 Aug 2014
right now you all know what this does in the game, the kracken does change in the game . the swapablity is a great bonus ,we love that but i really love the colours on this one, orange green and gold is a good combination , you dont need to collect it as it is a variant but in this case you most definitly will want too, as always well built and painted

5.0 out of 5 stars try this unit,if in doubt about electric brushes you soon wont be, 20 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
i got this brush as it had the brush head that i had not tried before. on receiving the unit it had as always very professional looking packaging which would look good for you or if giving as a gift. As well as showing all the functions of the toothbrush clearly there is also a "test drive" offer id not seen before, it means that you can buy with confidence as it allows you to return the brush if not 100% satisfied within 30 days (good to know).
The brush itself is firstly a lovely colour , i was getting a little bored with blue , its nice to have a choice especially if like us there are 5 in the family and you all have a handset.The handle is lightweight , comfortable in the hand, and quieter than some of the other units i have had. the stand is stable in use and the unit charges quickly. the charger can be removed from the brush head holder as well so they can be used separately .
I have had a few units so far and whilst impressed with them all i love the new pressure sensitive light which you can see flash even when not looking in a mirror, the different modes are great to have as i dont find the daily clean is always required and on these days i go to sensitive mode. i usually use the whitening mode with the whitening head probably once a week to give a lovely polish to my teeth.
the trizone head however is where my interest is, and i have found that im greatly impressed with it, the cleaning action is far removed from the round heads which are great for those back teeth, this one seems to get right into the spaces between my teeth ( my teeth cant get floss between them they are so close) which is a bonus for me as my teeth are slightly overcrowded and some are slightly overlapping.i feel i have gotten a really good clean with this unit and heads and i think i will continue with these heads for some time for my daily clean but i really really love the different heads and modes so you can tailor the unit to your teeth and gums needs on a daily basis

5.0 out of 5 stars goog coffee , fair price, no compaints, 18 Aug 2014
this is comparable to the coffee i buy on the high street ,it makes a good standard mug full , i don't usually add sugar to my coffee and these do have a tiny amount in them but its not sweet by any description just a nice smooth beverage at vastly less than the coffee shops i refuse to purchase from and better than from the burger chain that i do. the froth is good but remember you have to provide your own sprinkles, great for speed and taste when i dont have the time or inclination to use the espresso machine. i have served this to friends and family and so far everyone has liked them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reliable and affordable., 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tablet is very good especially for the price. I have had this tablet for over a year and it still works perfectly, I have tested it with several different programs including Photoshop and have had no problems with this tablet. It is perfectly capable of creating professional quality art and can be customized easily with the tablet settings that are available. I think that the cable could be longer but overall it's a brilliant and affordable tablet.

3.0 out of 5 stars writing style wasnt for me , but an interesting topic, 17 Aug 2014

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
this book is on an interesting topic, we probably have all at one point or another heard the transplant patient starts to take on the habits of the donor ,a spooky topic right?? and this is why i chose the book the story intrigued me but the writing style wasnt for me the he said this she said that way it was written was not of my liking and i was glad it wasnt a long book . still made me think some more n the topic

4.0 out of 5 stars great sequel , roll on book 3, 17 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
this is a good series in the making , i read the lost and liked it enough to continue on to the second book. It is as good the characters are real and you get pulled easily into the story set in ireland it makes a nice change from all the american detective novels .the story feels all the more "real" as it dips in and out of past troubles . i like books that are fiction but stem from some real situations and history , easier to relate to i think. a good story line around a touchy subject but i worked and i look forward to book 3

4.0 out of 5 stars some old some new ,but it tastes good, 17 Aug 2014
This review is from: The Cabana Cookbook (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
as some have said there are some filler recipes in here but there are also some interesting and tasty ones,again i know nothing of the authenticity of the recipes themselves and this book was obviously inspired to co-inside with the world cup but why not?
we loved the pulled pork sliders and the coconut lime sorbet and we will be trying more over the coming bbq season.
i could have done with more photos (as always) but there is a great spread for planning a brasiian bbq party,

4.0 out of 5 stars i love the case but it would be nice if all ..., 17 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
this brush is top of the range, i love the case but it would be nice if all 4 heads fitted in it as they all do different things. the new cross action heads i find are quite gentle and do a really fantastic job of cleaning your teeth . the smart guide is useful the pressure sensor is a good thing to have but it is heavier than the usual brush handles to accomodate the bluetooth and as others have said i really dont see the pointof it maybe some teens might like it for a few days but really all it does for me is drain the battery faster, i do however love he battery life indicator, the case for me is more useful than the stand for the heads but thats just my preference

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting but didnt hold my attention, 17 Aug 2014
This review is from: Memory of Water (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
its an ok tale as others have said it uses language to great effect but i didnt get to the end i found it was too depressing and it floundered around not really getting anywhere in particular at times but it did have some interesting perspectives on a disintegrating world changed by climate and people
