5.0 out of 5 stars Also On First Impressions A Quality Quilt/Duvet So Far So Good. With a Bit of Love Think They'll Be Great, 17 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've just received the Duvet/Quilt this morning, I can honestly say that it looks and feels great now!

Some reviews mention how "Thin" "No Feathers" and so on...

When it arrived it was in its own zip case, looked good. I was initially really worried about the thickness too. But I frantically searched for any instruction and care info. It said on the label to "Shake" regularly, so I spent 5 to 10 minutes shaking and it plumped up nicely! The Duvet/Quilt has pocket stitching meaning the feathers and Down are evenly distributed. Having owned a naturally filled Quilt before I remembered the filling "settles" and it needs daily shake outs.

Reviews also say it's noisy, it is to a certain extent, but that's how Feather Duvets are in my experience, I think there's a bag like casing which protects you from being poked and stabbed by feathers!

Smell/Odour Yes! There is quite a pungent smell of feathers when you first unpack. But it disappears quickly once it airs about 2 or 3 hours.

All this said though, I haven't slept under it yet! I hope it's Cat and Girlfriend proof!

I've just received the Pillows this morning, I can honestly say they look and feel great now!

When they arrived, the pillows where in their own case, looked good. I was initially really worried about the thickness too. But I frantically searched for any instruction and care info. It said on the label to "Shake" regularly, so I spent 5 to 10 minutes shaking and they plumped up nicely! The pillows were as flat as a pancake when they arrived! The filling "settles" and they need daily shake

Smell/Odour Yes! There is quite a pungent smell of feathers when you first unpack. But it disappears quickly once they air for about 2 or 3 hours.

All this said though, I haven't slept on them yet!


The New Jerusalem Bible: Study Edition (Bible Njb)
The New Jerusalem Bible: Study Edition (Bible Njb)
by Henry Wansbrough
Edition: Paperback
Price: £22.09

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice, Clear Translation, Compact and Affordable Bible. I Love It!, 30 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic Bible. The New Jerusalem Bible Study Bible was recommended to me by my parish priest during an RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) or Adult Confirmation into the Roman Catholic Church. He also recommended the Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSV-CE) for a good rounded view of the Scriptures.

I like the NJB, it's compact and easy to carry and the textual notes are excellent.

The Editors chose to refer to God as Yahweh (Hebrew word for God) in the Old Testament, for me, it gives the OT a slightly more authoritative feel. A bit like unedited, unadulterated & pure approach to the texts.

The New Jerusalem Bible is a Catholic Bible, but from what I've read so far it doesn't appear exclusive.

It's a nice version, affordable and compact enough to put into a bag and carry around.

Some reviews mention the small font size. It is quite small but I don't find it difficult to read at all.

The major drawback though is that this version is paperback! I can't see the book lasting very long without a cover! So far I haven't been able to God a cover that fits the copy. If anybody knows of one please let me know!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Practical Book That Helps Get To Grips With Insomnia. - Recommended!, 20 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this book really nice to read, in fact it's the first "Kindle" book I've read on my new Fire HDX 8.9".

The quality of writing is good, if you've bought this title because you're having problems with Insomnia (as I have) it's likely that some of the stuff within the pages you already know.

However, I found the "Five Step Programme" unique in that it actually approaches the issue practically, and doesn't spend to many pages explaining what the causes are or why you're experiencing the problem but gets down to trying to address the Insomnia problem.

Would I recommend this? Yes! Why? Because, unlike some "Self Help books" endlessly go on about " the "Psychology" of the problem it aims to help you practically solve the problem. I've not finished the book yet but so far it has made an improvement to my sleep issues. I am still on Prescription Sleeping Tablets (Zopiclone) so be interesting to see if the book helps me sleep without needing them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant Electronic Component Cleaner. Brings Back The Sparkle!, 25 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is great. I use it to clean my Stainless Steel e-cig mods and atomizers. I wouldn't recommend using Isopropyl on Plastic/Polycarbonate atomizer tanks, although I haven't tried it personally, I've heard it can crack the tanks. Maybe it won't! But this stuff seriously cleans all the metal parts, eats through machine oil and of course it is a sterilizer too.

I discovered the reason the advise using Isopropyl in a well ventilated area is there for a reason... This stuff is 99.9% Pure the fumes make your eyes stream and clears your sinuses for sure!

But the best thing is, Isopropyl evaporates within minutes, without leaving any taste or taint, so it is ideal for cleaning your e cig parts. Makes them shine as bright as the North Star too.

Personally, I won't use this to clean anything that has a matte finish but otherwise it is brilliant.

It cleans circuit boards, connections, removes sticky residue and much more.

Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally Available on Android Phones! But sadly NOT Tablets!, 25 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prime Instant Video (App)
Finally arrived for Android phones, I can now take full advantage of my Prime membership!

The only negative point I have is that the App isn't compatible with Android Tablets which is a real shame, as I primarily use my tablet to stream videos whilst due to the screen being 10.1 inches. I hope that they will put out an update to include Sony Xperia Tablet Z soon.

Otherwise, this app I think is great!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really moving book in the face of hardship comes a deep friendship and masses of humanity, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well what can I say about this book... It's Nelson Mandela! There are some awkward pronunciations here, tribes and some Afrikaans language, it felt daunting at first but by page 4 I was totally absorbed in the book.

It's one of the books I couldn't put down. Very powerful, to me it tells of humanity at one of the darkest places you could be (prison).

Christo tells it as it is, somehow it feels a privilege to look into that world. There are some very moving places in this book for example Nelson Mandela being able to meet his grandchild thanks to Christo taking massive personal risks.

A great read, somehow life feels better for reading it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Testosterone Gel without Testosterone, The only way to get genuine Testosterone is via your Dr or Hospital, 16 May 2014
This is NOT Testosterone! Look at the ingredients... I really don't know if this works, maybe the herbal concoction will improve skin and general wellbeing but I believe any positive effects will be psychological. The "Placebo" effect.

I have been prescribed Testosterone Gel by my Dr it's called Testogel proscribed for Testosterone deficiency. It comes I'm a 5g sachet and contains:
50mg Testosterone (Active Ingredient)
Carbomer 980
Isopropyl magistrate
Ethanol 96%
Sodium hydroxide
Purified Water

If you read this items description you won't find any mention of Testosterone. For those men experiencing lack of sex drive, weight gain, excessive sweating and symptoms of depression should see their Dr, they will take two sets of blood the first one will give you an idea of your Testosterone levels if they are low the Dr will repeat the blood tests usually at 9am (first thing in the morning) if the second test still reveals low Testosterone, depending on your Dr you'll be referred to an Endocrinologist (hormone specialist). Or, as in my case Dr prescribed Testosterone replacement therapy in the form of Testogel. You will be reviewed and blood tests regularly where they will either maintain the dose, increase the dose or try a different administration route e.g. Injections in the bum! Go for the gel first eh!

It's widely known that some Body builders looking to build muscle fast use Testosterone amongst other things, but Testosterone is classed as anabolic steroids I believe and therefore if you compete professionally you may be classed as doping.

Healthy Eating, Exercise and dedication will build muscle! It is true that Testosterone can reduce fat and build muscle mass but that is a long term advantage, it doesn't solve ED. But it does increase your sex drive and as a result of that your ED problem may also resolve.

Sorry this is so long, but please don't waste your hard earned cash on this! It is not what it says it is. Finally if you do actually begin T replacement, don't expect immediate results, I'm on my second week of life long treatment and there is certainly a small improvement in sex drive, a little weight loss I mean 5ib in 15 days. But no change in muscle def. Even though I'm training 5 days a week with 2 day rest. I think my energy levels and strength are improving but that's bound to be the case with daily workout.

Good Luck, let me know if I can be of any help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the box., 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There isn't a lot you can say about a sleep mask, but it gets 5 stars for comfort, the design has Velcro on the strap so it is adjustable and very comfortable to wear while sleeping, it also has eye rebates so you don't feel like there is anything pressing on your eyelids while you sleep, which I find with other sleep masks.

It blocks out all the light too, very comfortable around your nose too.
