Wells Lamont Premium Leather Work Gloves Precurved Design 3 Pack Large
Wells Lamont Premium Leather Work Gloves Precurved Design 3 Pack Large
Offered by Webbasket
Price: £24.80

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing and comfortable, 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We find these comfortable to wear and so far seem thornproof. Time alone will tell how long they will last in the garden. They do absorb grime and although the manufacturers provide detailed care and cleaning instruction, we have not yet had the opportunity to put these to the test. That said,we are fully satisfied with the product to date and certainly much more comfortable than some other products that they replace. If problems develop we will try to remember to edit this review accordingly..


Ludlow Nut Co Dried Pears, 500g
Ludlow Nut Co Dried Pears, 500g
Offered by Ludlow Nut Co

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality pears., 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived promptly. Pears are generally quite moist and have a good flavour of pears. Maybe one could find a better product. certainly one can find worse. When using it part of a mixed fruit compote it is worth noting that these pears may need a different length of time for cooking than other dried fruits. Some experimenting may be needed to ensure that some fruits in a mixed compote are not cooked to a pulp whilst awaiting others that require a longer period.

One minor criticism is that the plastic bag used by the supplier was quite brittle. Be careful not to drop it lest you have dried pears all over the floor!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thyme on time., 29 Mar. 2015

It arrived promptly and well packed. Short of having a dried thyme tasting session, I cannot compare this with other dried thymes but it seems perfectly suitable as a sbstitue for fresh thyme.when such is unavailable or indeed is only available as a tasteless forced product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the cost., 29 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I find this an excellent book and worth its price. It is an honest and sincere secription of the way in which food is prepared, cooked, eaten, and appreciated by the Monks of the communities on Holy Mount Athos. It is a refreshing change from the elaborate recipes of some modern ego-tripping celebrity chefs. The book is well illustrated with attractive photographs and has many quotations offering an insight into Greek Orthodox spirituality. My slight criticism is that the binding does not always allow the book to remain open at the page being read, but this is a minor defect in a quality product.

The recipes are well translated into English but do give rise to some challenges. Some of the fish and vegetables, although no doubt translated accurately by someone living in the Eastern Mediterranean, have names meanigless to persons living in more northern climes. The challenge is to research the names and find substitues from markets in northern Europe. One word of warning to those who look to this book as a source of a quick fix Mount Athos slimming diet. The recipes demand fresh produce, careful and sometimes lengthy preparation, and are essentially a labour of love towwards those that will eat them. The spirituality of Holy Mountain Athos is an essential component of its cuisine. Personally, I find the cost of this book is money well spent and an awake call to a simpler cuisine.

Offered by For Men's Grooming
Price: £9.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Suits me., 15 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although some reviewers are unhappy with this item, I find it gives a smooth shave. It makes an excellent lather and leaves the skin free from bristle despite the use of basic disposible razors. I personally am committed to this product and much prefer it to aerosol products or indeed other brands of shaving soap.

3.0 out of 5 stars Four letter football., 23 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this as a present for a football crazy 10-year old. It is an eye-opener as regards what many have long suspected about top-level professional football - It is in the hands of big business and geared to making money out of supporters. It is a good insight as to what goes on and well worth reading from that point of view. The anonymous author no doubt reports correctly various conversations on or off pitch. This begs the question as to whether professional footballers that are presented as a role model for aspiring younsters should have their use of four letter words reported. I am far from being a prude and will use expressive language in the right company, but I took that view that a 10-year old should be preserved from seeing such language in print and attributable to potential role models. All I can say is that an adult purchasing a copy for a youngster should read it through first and decide whether it is suitable for the youngster in question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old fashioned but good., 23 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived promptly and well packed. It holds a few hundred grams of flour and is easy to move around in the kitchem for whenever one needs to sprinkle someting. Far less messy than going to a bag of flour, spooning out some and then sprinkling with the help of a sieve. It cuts down a lot of unnecesary movements in the kitchen. My regret is that I didn't get a similar item sooner or watched my grandmother when she cooked. I'm sure that she used this sort of thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is good for an erudite laugh and to be welcomed in ..., 23 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've obtained a copy some years ago and was able to trck this one down for a Latinist firens. It is good for an erudite laugh and to be welcomed in circles that would appreciate this sort of thing. The only difficulty is that it is geared for the US reader and has 'Amerenglish' expressions that mean little this side of the Atlantic and some of the US homour is impenetrable. This means that some of the Latin is difficult to understand even if translated back into 'Angloenglish'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality dried dill., 23 Dec. 2014

Arrived promptly and carefully packed. A useful item to use whenever quality fresh dill weed is unavailable. My experience is that dried dill is never a perfect substitute for the fresh. That said, this product is a good quality dried dill and I am happy with it
