3.0 out of 5 stars Oral-B Pro 3000, 29 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was an upgrade from the Oral-B Professional Care 1000, which I have had for a few years now and seemed to be running out of battery. The Pro 3000 has 3 settings, daily clean, sensitive and gum massage (which pulses at regular intervals rather than rotating). It also has a pressure sensor that lights up when brushing too hard and a 2 minute timer. It is not immediately obvious how to switch between settings, but through trial and error I found that pushing the 'on' button while cleaning switches through them (once for sensitive, twice for gum massage), and holding down turns the toothbrush off.

Compared to the older model, the Pro 3000 feels like it is less powerful and… Read more

Some of these are the usual things - cushions, hats, mittens, phone cases. However, there are a few more unusual… Read more

The Moth: This Is a True Story by Catherine Burns
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is my first exposure to The Moth, a non-profit organisation dedicated to the art of storytelling. It brings together people to tell their stories in front of a live audience.

The Moth: This Is a True Story collects together transcripts of 50 of these stories, grouping them together into very general themes, such as stories of war, love, or the generation gap. The themes are there to give some structure to the book, but don't really make any impact other than this. The stories chosen cover a huge range of emotions, they are all personal but touch on very human events and universal emotions. Many of them are incredibly moving, some are funny, some are harrowing. The book… Read more
