5.0 out of 5 stars Robust and efficient cleaning at an excellent price, 15 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I did a lot of research before buying this vac. Similarly priced products were often criticised for their flimsy construction - especially the pipe and hoses. Not this one! Given the amount of pressure you put on the pipe when cleaning, it's essential that this part is constructed of robust materials. This one is.
It picks up wonderfully; you can adjust the suction; the cleaning heads that come with it are well designed; the dust collector is easy to empty; the carrying handle is strong.....It's good for cleaning the car as well as the house.
All in all, a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars A drugs free approach for the treatment of arthritis is advocated by this book, 15 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My mum got this book from the library - loved it - so we ordered a copy from Amazon. She was diagnosed with arthritis 50 years ago and has suffered on and off with the disease since. Over Christmas 2012, she was bed ridden with a bad chest infection for 5 weeks and lost a stone in weight because she didn't want to eat. However, this enforced fasting 'cured' her arthritis. Although she'd always suspected that diet was a key factor in managing arthritis, this episode confirmed it. This book is useful in listing 'prohibited' foods as well as 'desirable' foods and suggesting ways to incorporate the latter into your diet. Of course, other self help books on arthritis give conflicting advice. This one, for example, advocates a gluten free diet - eliminating wheat, oats and rye from your intake, whilst others on the subject are not so strict. It also introduces readers to the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric and ginger. However, despite this, it's not a dogmatic book and encourages experimentation. We've combined the advice in this book with that found in Margaret Hills' "Curing Arthritis the Drugs -free way". Both books were written by women who cured their own arthritic conditions through diet. That adds weight to their words! My own opinion is that the NHS should spend less on anti-inflammatories and much more on self-help through diet. It would save the tax-payers billions! Books like these can only stimulate growth in that self-help sector.

Crocs Crocband, Unisex Adults' Clogs - Red (Red), 7 UK Men/8 UK Women
Crocs Crocband, Unisex Adults' Clogs - Red (Red), 7 UK Men/8 UK Women

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product - but sizing on the small side, 18 Feb. 2012
Crocs Unisex Crocband ClogThe clogs were well illustrated on the website and a great colour. However, having bought a size 8, I was a little disappointed that they didn't fit me. If only I'd taken the time to read more of the customer reviews! It seems this is a common problem. However, instead of returning them, I gave them to my sister - who normally takes a size 7. She likes them, although she did say that the strap was a bit short, so it tends to push her foot hard into the clog. The shortness of the strap also makes it difficult to keep it in position over the front part of the clog. Maybe this will ease as the strap stretches. For now, it has to be worn at the back of the heel.

4.0 out of 5 stars review of ladies' sports shirts, 28 Aug. 2011
Bought two polo shirts of differing colours - always difficult to choose colours as they never seem to be portrayed accurately. The red one was perfect - the yellow one wasn't quite as 'mustard' as I was looking for but was still an attractive shade.

I ordered medium shirts as I'm usually a standard size 14, but had to send them back to be replaced by XL. These only just fit me! I wouldn't therefore recommend them for anybody who truly is extra large!

The gathering round the sleeve seams gives a feminine look to the cut.

All in all, very good value for money as the cotton seems reasonably heavyweight and long lasting. Can't comment on whether or not they lose colour and/or wash well - as they haven't been laundered yet.
