4.0 out of 5 stars Very good , almost hypnotic., 15 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A fascinating approach to learning basic Italian phrases. The multiple repetitions have a down side though, in that they limit the number of phrases included on the CD.
The other thing is , that as the teacher of a U3A beginners group, I already speak Italian, so I find that I am learning the guitar licks instead!

Our veg bed is built up with a mix of compost an local clay based topsoil. Some plants grow well, others don't. Should we add lime?
As it happens, no. It is Ph neutral, which we now know for sure, thanks to this little kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Had to turn up the legs, but.., 4 May 2014

it's a generous size, so it will be comfortable in the cold weather with more layers underneath. It's a good quality overall, and I'm very happy with it.


Silverline 868868 Circlip Pliers Set 5-Piece 160mm
Silverline 868868 Circlip Pliers Set 5-Piece 160mm
Price: 3.59

3.0 out of 5 stars Versatile, but a bit floppy, 23 Feb 2014

Good points- they will cope with the small circlips that are used for gudgeon pins.
They will work as both open and closing pliers
Bad points- the interchangeable ends mean that the pivot joint is loose, so the jaws will just twist sideways if the circlip is too strong for them- and even quite small ones are too strong.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful small wrench., 23 Feb 2014

There are times when the longer version of this would be more appropriate, adjusting Monoshocks for example, but this 7" one is small enough to be useful as a clutch holder too.

I have never counted how many allen keys I have- it's a lot. But there are screws that none of them will fit- because they are imperial sizes. This set solves the problem.

"I'm sick and tired and bored with myself... Want to change my clothes, my hair , my face"
Bruce Springsteen screams out against the mundanity of the daily grind. If you've felt the same way, you need this song in your life.
If you are telling me you have never felt like this, I don't believe you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very early Bee Gees, one of their best tunes., 23 Feb 2014

This review is from: In the Morning (MP3 Download)
Undeservedly little known, this is an excellent song, with a powerful tune that will stay with you for a long time. After all these years, there is one line from this song that has always intrigued me, "Another day to swing on clothes lines". It has stuck in my mind while I had forgotten the rest, and even forgotten who sang the song. Thanks to the internet, lost things can be found again, and I have found this song and take delight in hearing and playing it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tells you more about the era of the writer than the stone age., 18 Sep 2013

The heading just sums it all up really. Very much an insight into Victorian values and in to the state of pre-historical and anthropological knowledge at the time. It's worth reading for that alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars An improvement on the Phillips Sonicare, 18 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
And a far lower price too.
This was bought to replace a Sonicare E Series. Both toothbrushes do a very similar and effective job. But the replacement heads for the Phillips are far more expensive, and with the E series, the hollow in the handle, where the magnets fit, can get really horrible and dirty unless you wash it out after every use. The Braun is a far better design. The initial cost is lower, and so are the replacement heads, but it is equally effective.
