Suttons Seeds 112386 Dahlia Yankee Doodle Dandy Seed
Suttons Seeds 112386 Dahlia Yankee Doodle Dandy Seed
Price: £2.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Some are like the packet, 12 Sep 2014
Packet colours are deceptive. I don't expect an exact match, but I didn't expect plain yellow, either! Some are like the packet, but it's nice to have some variety. Thanks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good pump, but clean it first., 12 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Initial findings - rinse it first in a bowl! I tested it in the pond and now have an oil film to remove (fortunately no fish present). Put bricks around it if running without a hose - it takes off under its own jet power. That aside, it looks like it's going to be a good pump, really gets the muck suspended so's the other one can move it into the filter.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the Karrimor we use to know and love., 18 Aug 2014
These were bought in March, and have seen moderate use. Very comfortable, reasonably waterproof. It is now August; the uppers are starting to split and the sole is starting to wear through at the heel so I guess there is not much hope of long-term survival. I always used to buy Karrimor equipment, but now it is under new ownership it is just another 'brand'. By all means get these for that summer trip, but don't expect years of faithful service! For reference I use them mainly for camping weekends, ie wet grass or pub!


Official Baldur's Gate Strategy Guide (Brady Games Strategy Guides)
Official Baldur's Gate Strategy Guide (Brady Games Strategy Guides)
by Bill Keith
Edition: Paperback

2.0 out of 5 stars Good if you play the author's game, 10 Feb 2014
One man's walkthrough. If you go somewhere he didn't go, or meet someone he (or she, of course) didn't meet, it won't be in there. The one global map at 4 inches by 6 inches to cover the fifty areas is slightly inadequate. The smaller maps show what the screen shows, nothing more. Reading the intro gives you a feel for the mindset of the game authors, and if you follow the guide through you will still have challenges, but the guide will help. If you do you own thing, you are on your own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job quietly, 4 Dec 2013

Easy to install, no issues, quiet in operation. Not blindingly fast, I bought it to speed up compositing in After Effects, but can't really say that I noticed any difference from the £30 5450 I was using before.

Visual Basic 2008 Programmer's Reference (Programmer to Programmer)

3.0 out of 5 stars Good to get you started with .net, 4 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Interestingly, the number of mistakes in the written code examples encourage a bit of extra thought, ramming home the lesson in a way that won't be forgotten! It got me over the hurdle of moving from VB6 to VB.NET, now I just need a similar item to teach me about programming database front ends. Overall a good reference book to get you kickstarted again when you are stuck and the ideas have dried out.

4.0 out of 5 stars They do the job, 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As general purpose household tools these are fine. Don't try respraying your classic Ferrari, getting a reasonable finish takes some effort. Spraying the fence is OK. I bought these because the last (Draper) set I bought, which was identical (probably the same manufacturer) failed. Every item had a problem with it's airline connection snapping in half, and the thread to go into the alloy seems to be unavailable. When I had used up all the adapters (swapping around as necessary), I just bought this new set and kept the old bits as spares.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure where it was going......, 4 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am not normally a reader of novels, so keep that in mind. I found this an interesting 'day in the life' type of read, compulsive reading in that I was intrigued to know what the mystery was and where the Knights Templar connection lay. I failed to find either. There was a murder around page 400, but soon resolved. Am I just missing the point? As a book to pass the time it is fine. It can be put down any time without the feeling of having missed anything. I hate the un-necessary (incorrect) footnotes on every page. The research is thorough (well, internet/Wiki thorough, not library thorough!) but like Star Wars, the background information/temporal language adds something. Hey ho.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good protective case, 22 Sep 2013

This seems to be a smart, well made cover, and a good fit for the Xperia SP. None of my (commercial) audio leads will plug in with the case in place, but I can live with that.
