Park Tool Super Patch Kit Park Tool
I've used several of these patches over the years, and they had all worked perfectly, until yesterday, when I came to cycle home and found my bike had a flat tyre. After getting the tyre off, it became immediately apparent what had happened: the glue on one of these patches that I had stuck on about 6 months ago had melted. The patch was lifting off, and a sticky mess of glue was oozing out from underneath. The air temperature in the bike shed was probably only around 28 degrees or so. I think I'll be going back to rubber cement and rubber patches from now on. Sigh.

Although he doesn't quite have the strength and coordination to hit the worms down yet, he has grasped the idea from watching me, and is able to tap them on their heads with the hammer. My 3.5 year-olds were much less… Read more
Carte Noire Espresso No 9 Intense 10 Coffee Capsul&hellip by Carte Noire
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)

The coffee has a good flavour. It is noticeably stronger and more bitter than the No 7 Aromatique capsules. It's quite similar to Nestle's Dharkan capsules, although slightly smoother and less nutty. It's a good after-dinner coffee.

Each capsule is individually wrapped in a foil pouch, presumably because they aren't air-tight on their own. This means that a box of ten is substantially bulkier than a tube of 10 Nestle capsules. I also doubt there is any mechanism… Read more
