5.0 out of 5 stars High Performance FORCE 8 MaxiMask 2000, 19 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This mask may appear expensive when compared to buying a pack of disposable dust masks. The difference is that it works, & it works very well. All the jobs that usually leave me spluttering & wheezing, have been undertaken splutter & wheeze free! It feels a bit odd when you first put it on; but once engrossed in your work you forget it's there. I wish I'd bought one years ago!

This tool cuts through substantial branches like they are butter. The telescopic pole is fantastic & enabled me to prune some very high branches on a holly tree, & reduced a job that would have cost a ridiculous amount of money if done by professionals, to just the cost of the pruner - which was less than £40.


Agatha Raisin: Something Borrowed, Someone Dead

2.0 out of 5 stars Something Borrowed, Someone Dead - would that be Agatha Raisin fans?, 19 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read all the Agatha Raisin books so far, & on the whole I have enjoyed them. There are usually 2 or 3 murders. Agatha usually has a brush with death, & then Police come in at the end & whip away the credit from her.
Perhaps following a basic formula make it easier to churn out a regular supply for fans, but I really felt as if the writer has lost interest for huge chunks of this story. Dialogue between characters seemed to have been replaced by a hurried narrative; not unlike the ploy used in old films, where someone takes a phone call & repeats back the conversation in order to save shooting a scene. I also got the impression that more than one hand was involved in this book. There were shades of the earlier stories, but it felt as if a rather weak plot with a little narrative (and the little rants that often feature - e.g. how the smoking ban has affected pubs etc.) had been produced, then the rest just filled in around it to pad it out. To a regular reader of these books, the difference in styles stuck out like a sore thumb. If this is to be the future for Agatha Raisin, then it would be kinder to let Bill Wong arrive too late to save her! I will try the next book in hope that this was a temporary blip, but if it's the same then I'll read no more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Foot shaped shoe - great idea., 4 May 2014

Had a pair of these before. Perfect if you're spending time on your feet & similar to the old Clarke's Polyvelt range. That range should be brought back in all its retro splendour! They were iconic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unfinished business., 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always loved Mulberry, & like many more I was disappointed when the series was axed before reaching its conclusion. It has stood the test of time, & the gentle humour entertains but does nothing to offend. I think the BBC should round up the cast & find someone to pen the conclusion as a tribute to the writers. It is possible however, to trawl the web & find out what was planned for the final episode. It's just a shame it never happened.

2.0 out of 5 stars Austen it ain't!, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I didn't care for the style in which it was written, & felt the territory was not a place that Jane Austen would have ventured with her characters. P.D. James fans may disagree, but this is my view & the book was not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Travel back in time., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this series of jigsaws for two reasons: the first is that there are no great big patches of just one colour. This makes the jigsaw both tedious & difficult. The second reason is that is it a great trip into the past, & a reminder of things you'd forgotten you even remembered!


Kes [DVD] [1969]

5.0 out of 5 stars Barnsley's best., 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kes [DVD] [1969] (DVD)
This is drama at its best. The film was shot in and around the Barnsley area & is peppered with authentic Barnsley accents. When the film was first released, there was talk of subtitles for people in the south of England. Whether this is true or an urban myth I cannot say, but regardless of whether or not you have difficulty with the accent, Brian Glover's performance as the bullying P.E. teacher living out his thwarted dreams during a school football match, is a brilliant & classic piece of cinema history. The main character, Billy Casper, also has his dreams. Dreams of escaping a life down the mines & not following in the footsteps of his brother, and for a while, Billy finds this escape through his relationship with his Kestrel.The film is both sad & funny in places, & he is brought back to reality cruelly & abruptly.
Billy's life will be quite alien to many growing up in the North of England now; take particular note of the children's P.E. kits - not an designer label in sight! Kids didn't do free advertising for sports companies in those days!

If this boxed set came with a free bag of sweets it would be beyond perfect. It's a great way to spend a dull afternoon, singing along to songs we learnt by osmosis, & an excellent way to revive drooping spirits. Highly recommended for lovers of musicals!
