AA Great Britain Road Atlas 2015 Hardback by AA Publishing
5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended, 21 July 2014
A very nice road atlas. Printed on quality, glossy paper with a paper dust jacket. I originally purchased the AA spiral bound edition in the same scale as this edition (the one with the black background cover). But, I found it difficult for my eyes to make the jump across the spiral's gap between the pages, and match up correctly with the road on the page opposite. So, I ordered this hardback edition to deal with that problem. The map fits on the page in exactly the same way as the spiral bound, and because it's a hardback, the heavy pages aren't flopping about. I'd recommend it, especially over the spiral bound versions of the AA road maps.

The relationship that's supposed to be going on between Spock and Uhura still seems unlikely, and what we got here was the two of them having an ongoing falling out between the action scenes. A falling out that seemed… Read more
Kallo Organic Natural Puffed Rice Wholegrain Cerea&hellip by Kallo
4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, 17 Mar 2014
This cereal reminds me of Kellogg's sugar puffs, just without the sugar and honey coating. I don't know why they should, as sugar puffs are made of wheat (which I now know I can't eat). This isn't my first choice of cereal, but I would have it again, as a lot of gluten free foods are terrible and very expensive. Compared to the rest I've tried these are pretty good.
