Fiskars Pinking Scissors
Fiskars Pinking Scissors
Price: £24.46

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Scissors, 17 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to replace an identical 'lost' pair. They're not identical though as since I bought my last set they've been improved, nice easy smooth cutting action. When, if, they wear out I'll buy the same again.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Desmond Bagley' always a good read., 18 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read these years ago and am just having a re-run. They're good stories like all his books. There are two to avoid as they were written by his wife after he died (she used his notes and wrote the stories).

4.0 out of 5 stars Just a good story, 29 Jan. 2014

I read these Desmond Bagley books when they were new so this was a trip down memory lane. They're just good stories and readable. Don't read the last two written after his death as his wife took his story outlines and wrote the books.

2.0 out of 5 stars Waste of space, 6 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As always it took ages to get going. After well over half way I realised it never was going to, I forced myself to finish it and wish I hadn't bothered. It's a book with no beginning no middle and no end, except a weak attempt to make you come back for the next in the series. I won't be back.

This does exactly what I want it to do. Sending information from my p.c.Video or music to the tv and amplifier. It works fine for me.

Over the past few years I must have used thousands of these. Starting with cut and pasting artwork for printing. Then modelling and now for trimmming pictures and photographs.. A really good sharp neat blade.

They do what it says on the tin. They work. I've had one failure out of a few thousand. I just don't give 5 *s to anything that is not exceptional!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent product, 1 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have bought hundreds of these over the past few years and only had one duff one caused by manufacturing faults, I've lost a couple of others due to my incompetance or equipment failure. For me they're absolutely fine. I'll be having more.

A Brilliant Little Operation: The Cockleshell Heroes and the Most Courageous Raid of World War 2
by Paddy Ashdown
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.19

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Story, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
To be brave for a short period of time is not unusual;. To be brave for a sustained period of several days takes a courage I doubt that I have. The vengefulness of the Germans is well known, The stupidity of the British having several sections each trying to do the same job at the same time, and no liaison between departments almost defies belief.
So - yes - a fantastic story. The only reason I have marked it down is I found the telling of the tale not to be terribly well written.
My recommendation....buy it.
