Still the best if you want a ripping maritime yarn and a bargain price on the Kindle store. Highly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Midland Pacific Handheld VHF Marine Transmitter, 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very nice waterproof unit with plenty of extras BUT no UK mains lead for the rechargeable batteries.
The mains lead is a Euro version so you have to buy a UK to Euro travel adapter to be able to charge it up.
It will run off AA batteries and you do get a car adapter in the box.
Amazon arranged a credit to cover the cost of a travel adapter.

The Transceivers have good range and clarity and would get 5 stars if they had a UK plug.

Black Snap-On Hard Skin Case Cover for Apple iPod Classic / Video
Black Snap-On Hard Skin Case Cover for Apple iPod Classic / Video
Offered by Electromaster (Ships From USA)
Price: 3.45

3.0 out of 5 stars Black snap-on hard case for iPod Classic, 25 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a nice looking case. Matt black with a slightly rubberised finish so it doesn't slide around.
It has a round hole in the middle of the back (What for?) and a small slit near the bottom of the back presumably for a lanyard.
The biggest problem is that it isn't a very good fit. When the two halves of the case are snapped together it leaves a gap all the way round. It is only about a 1 mm or even less gap but what with this and the holes in the back you can probably expect to get dust and grit entering the case and scratching the iPod eventually.
Shame really because if it did close up properly it would be a nice case.
On the plus side it is very easy to remove.


The Roald Dahl Audio CD Collection - Gift Set of 27 CDs (10 Classic Titles)
The Roald Dahl Audio CD Collection - Gift Set of 27 CDs (10 Classic Titles)
by Roald Dahl
Edition: Audio CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Hours of quality stories, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hours and hours of Roald Dahl stories read by top actors all in a nice robust zipped case so you won't loose them.
Adults will enjoy listening just as much as the kids.
Not a single dud among the collection.
Almost makes long journeys a pleasure.


Parrot MKi9200 UK Bluetooth Car Kit
Parrot MKi9200 UK Bluetooth Car Kit
Offered by Prepaymania
Price: 127.22

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, 20 Feb 2014

If you have a non iPod compatible car stereo and want to listen to your iPod or iPhone this is hard to beat.
The bluetooth phone integration works great and of course you can charge your iPod while listening or bluetooth your music.
The Parrot also supports other devices if, for some strange reason, you don't have an iPod or iPhone.
It is easy to fit if you are reasonably handy or any garage or auto electrician will be able to install it very quickly.


Time Jump (Halcyon Gate Book 1)

3.0 out of 5 stars Part one only, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this is more or less a complete novel it is obviously part one and you really are forced to buy subsequent volumes if you want to know what happens.
It isn't the greatest read ever but OK to while away an hour or two.

Hard Crystal Clear Case for iPod Classic 80/120GB/160GB

5.0 out of 5 stars Great case for the price, 20 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This case is so cheap you can't expect much but it does fit the iPod Classic perfectly.
All the ports are easily accesible and it locks together with a nice firm click.
You wouldn't want to be putting it on and off very often as the clips will probably wear out but why would you? If you need a dock friendly case this is probably not for you.
Obviously it will get scratched but for the price you can just throw it away when it gets too tatty and buy a new one and your iPod will still be in pristine condition.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just marvellous. The Kindle omnibus editions give you the entire Hornblower series for very little money.
Maybe not as thrilling or detailed as the Master and Commander series but loads cheaper so that has to be good!
I thought the language might be a bit dated but they still read well.
Highly recommended.

My 8 year old grandson wanted this but I ended up building and painting it for him.
Some of the parts are microscopic and even when it's finished the model itself is pretty small - the wingspan is less than 200mm.
You need a very steady hand and eye to get the bits out of the moulding and then paint such a tiny model.
When it's finished it looks OK but can't say I would buy another.
