The Anthology (Special Edition)
The Anthology (Special Edition)

5.0 out of 5 stars King of Country, 25 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good anthology of all Hank Williams' songs, equivalent to three CDs. Good quality and good value when purchased with Amazon tunes vouchers

3.0 out of 5 stars Society and corruption, 10 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good account of how crime and racketeering can thrive within society if communities feel they are benefiting with scant regard to moral principles. Cynical manipulation of the political system and the totally unacceptable face of capitalism. No significant connection to the TV programme although the links with real life characters such as the Commodore and Nucky are identified.


Colloquial Irish: The Complete Course for Beginners (Colloquial Series)
Colloquial Irish: The Complete Course for Beginners (Colloquial Series)
by Thomas Ihde
Edition: Paperback
Price: 20.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Colloquial Irish, 10 Nov 2013

This is a good course but really needs to be included as part of a learning scheme. I also purchased separately the accompanying CD which is essential to learn pronunciation. As a Welsh speaker, a lot of the vocabulary becomes intuitive due to similarity in words, also sentence construction in the two languages is similar which helps.

I think a learner would struggle with the book alone although it provides an excellent text book to accompany a more formal class environment.

Good factual book with some pictures I had not seen before. I'm not sure whether it provides any more information than is currently available in the public domain.

4.0 out of 5 stars Business card template paper, 25 Sep 2013

Expensive but a lot cheaper than the local stationery suppliers. I use the card for bilingual double sided business cards. The final cards are good quality although they do not come out completely flat, having a slight curve to them. Possibly because I am printing on both sides.

22 slots case pouch holder for memory card SD card
Offered by Mestall (Ship from HongKong)
Price: 1.48

4.0 out of 5 stars Memory card holder, 25 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a robust pouch which allows me to protect my growing collection of memory cards. With cards becoming cheaper and larger capacity it makes sense to retain a lot of photos on the cards and use them as back up storage. It's a small enough pouch to fit into my camera bag and of a reasonable quality for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wheelbarrow tyre, 6 Aug 2013

The product was well packed and arrived on time. Fitted to my wheelbarrow and has stayed inflated ever since. One point is that the rubber smells very strongly in the packaging. Don't leave it lying about in the house!

3.0 out of 5 stars New User, 27 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The software is comprehensive but not easy to use. The user interface seems dated and not intuitive. I purchased the product to produce an offline family tree without having to rely on a web based tree. I have not yet tried the online search and activated the 6 month subscription. I will probably only use the on line facility for research having already taken advantage of the free access to Census records. Some of the compatibility and synchronisation concerns expressed by other users worries me as to the robustness of the product. Also the US centricity on place names is a constant irritation.

Does all that is expected of it at a fraction of Nikon's price for an equivalent product. Looks the same as the Nikon product without the logo and price tag!

Hahnel Triad 30 Lite Professional Aluminium Alloy 4-Section Tripod with 360 Quick Release Ball Head and Free Carrying Case
Offered by ExpressPro
Price: 35.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Hahnel Tripod, 18 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The thumbscrew attachment was damaged on the item received, however this was replaced at no charge and in a speedy fashion by the suppliers. The tripod itself is lightweight and reasonably sturdy with provision to mount the camera underneath which can be useful. Good value for money product. I have subsequently bought one for my son who is taking up an interest in photography.
