Arrived very quickly, and fitted equally quickly. Much improved water flow as a result

5.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good..., 19 Jun. 2017

An Ethernet cable was recommended to try to improve our BBC I-Player quality. This was constantly buffering, and had become impossible to watch. I selected this at random from those advertised, and so far, at least, it seems to be doing the job. Cannot comment on the technical aspects as I am not qualified to do so.
Will monitor the performance over time and see how it goes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book - film could never do it justice., 10 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wild [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
So glad I read the book first, as this is what prompted me to buy the film on DVD. The film had to tell Cheryl's "back story" in a series of flashbacks which would have been very confusing to anyone without a prior knowledge of her motivation for undertaking this epic walk.
Reese Witherspoon is a fine actress, but this must have been a very difficult story to adapt for the screen and she deserves credit for recognising
its potential when she bought the film rights. Likewise Nick Hornby, for his screen play.
However, the film was ultimately a disappointment as it could never hope to be as comprehensive as the book itself, which I found a very satisfying read..

Excellent product - well made and comfortable.

Even with post and packing charges these are considerably cheaper to buy that in my local retail outlets.


Personal: (Jack Reacher 19)
Personal: (Jack Reacher 19)
by Lee Child
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.49

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't even think about it...., 9 Aug. 2015
Better reviewers than I have already described this book in less than glowing terms. Having waded through it I can only agree.with all of them.
This is the worst Lee Child book I have ever read, and the only consolation is the fact that I picked it up in a charity shop for next to nothing!
I now understand why it found its way to a charity shop so soon after publication!
Such a disapointment after all Lee Child's other Reacher novels. The character just doesn't work when transported to an area outside his native USA, and the plotting is ludicrous.
I agree with others that the end was in sight when Tom Cruise was cast in the Reacher role. How could Lee Child have given approval to that nonsense? Must have been money talking.
I thoroughly enjoyed all his earlier books but this is definitely the last I will be bothering with,. If you see it on the shelves please do yourself a favour and leave it there.
A huge let-down...

5.0 out of 5 stars Just get it!, 15 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Marvellous (BBC) [DVD] (DVD)
Watched this on TV twice and just had to get my own copy. A simply "marvellous" film, all the better for being the true story of Neil Baldwin who didn't let life get in his way! Even if you are not a football fan this is such a funny, feel-good story that you can't fail to be moved and entertained by it.
Just shows what a positive attitude to life can achieve - an inspiration to all of us.....TobyJones is brilliant in the role. What a fine natural actor he is.
Please watch this film - it deserves its place in anyone's collection. I shall never tire of playing it.


Cooking For Blokes Omnibus: Cooking for Blokes and Flash Cooking for Blokes
Cooking For Blokes Omnibus: Cooking for Blokes and Flash Cooking for Blokes
by Dr Duncan Anderson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good place to start., 3 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used to own both theses cookery books some years ago, but lost them in various house moves. This was a good opportunity to re-acquaint myself with them.
Excellent recipes, although some of them cater for 4-6 people, which is not very practical for someone just wanting to get in at the shallow end of cooking. It's not easy to scale down for one or two people. That is my main gripe.
However, they do provide a basic framework and cover most questions that blokes are likely to ask.
A good place to start for anyone wishing to learn more of the culinary arts...


Buddy Rich Live In 78 [DVD] [NTSC]
Buddy Rich Live In 78 [DVD] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Buddy Rich
Offered by skyvo-direct
Price: £26.26

5.0 out of 5 stars The master at work.., 3 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent DVD which shows Buddy at the top of his game. This is the band he regarded as his best ever, and it's hard to disagree with that.
Some old favourites on here such as "Big Swing Face" and "Channel One Suite," but also some that I had never heard before such as "Grand Concourse".
It's true that some of the camera angles could have been better chosen - at times Buddy's face is obscured by a cymbal, but overall it's a great presentation.
This was despatched direct from the USA and arrived within the time frame quoted. A great addition to my BuddyRich collection. Highly recommended

Great condition - practically as new. Contents well laid out, although having seen "Windows 7 for Dummies" I think that would have been a better buy for my purposes. Unfortunately it wasn't available at this price.
