3.0 out of 5 stars Hippy trippy, 20 Feb 2014
This album is okay. If you're familiar with the Lukers' work then it's more of the same. Don't buy it expecting lots of new and catchy songs: it's much more an album for contemplation.
Seiko Men's 5 Automatic SNK381K Silver Stainless-S&hellip Seiko
5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely watch, 20 Feb 2014
I bought this to replace (temporarily) a much-loved Oris Big Crown. I managed to detach and lose the Big Crown :( and was a bit reluctant to send it for repair when the last time I had it serviced it cost over 100.

Knog Blinder Rear 4 LED Light - Black Knog
5.0 out of 5 stars Great light, 20 Feb 2014
It does exactly what you want. It's really bright. It has a range of flash modes (and remembers the last one you used) so if you get a complaint from a cyclist behind you that the flashing is giving her a headache, you can choose another mode. It's rechargeable via USB (just plug it into your PC). It's fairly unobtrusive (you might even get away with the ungodly not spotting it for what it is, especially if you get the black one like I did).

It's not cheap, but it's all the rear light you could reasonably need.
