3.0 out of 5 stars Acceptance but some criticism., 3 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems quite good and will probably save me money on electricity but it is not Quite what I expected. The dimmer I'm using is a push on and offtype and the increase/decrease can be felt as steps in the switch rotation. For at least the first 4 steps there is no light whatsoever but beyond that the increasing light works as expected. I however it is turned down close to minimum light then at that level pressed to switch off, when pressed on again it does not start. Before it will start it has to be wound up to a higher level so that the initial lighting level is brighter than required. It can then be turned down but it would be better, in fact ideal if it could be started a the lowest level. This, the first one I have tried is in use in the bedroom so I will still probably buy more for other rooms where this effect will be less important. I would though be interested if anyone has knowledge of a type which can achieve the initial switch on at a lower light level.

Performs exactly as expected although I expected that as soon as the new one arrived the old one would be found; this didn't happen. I might now have two of them but one cannot be found, not even down the back of the sofa.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Elkie Brooks--CD, 20 April 2014

Most tracks very good. Some of her 'covers' are better than the originals e.g.'Money' (Pink Floyd) and Gasoline Ally (Rod Stewart). Most people only know 'Pearl's a Singer' but she is so much more versatile than that.

I saw the film many years ago and enjoyed it very much, I hope it has not paled with age.
