Chaos In The Blink Of An Eye
Chaos In The Blink Of An Eye
Price: £0.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Fast paced fiction based on prophetic certainty., 26 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked the insights into contemporary American culture. Too many names and characters for my liking. I thought the scenario miscast the character of God, "who is not the author of confusion, but of peace".

5.0 out of 5 stars Works quickly on thin layers of green moss when diluted ..., 15 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works quickly on thin layers of green moss when diluted as directed. Gross thick layers need further treatment or physical removal.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice fit to the phone, but not durable., 15 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice fit to the phone. The case closes well on the magnetic catch. Might need some help with standing up, as the case is a little stiff in the UK autumn and tends to close up.
Unfortunately, after just six weeks, the thin black plastic case has started breaking up at the edges.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than an exciting read, 15 Nov. 2015
Fantastic? God speaking to an ordinary bloke about current events? Yes!
Here is a fast moving yarn in the mystery / thriller genre built around extremist terrorism that realistically explores the dilemmas faced by people with a supernatural experience.
This book is more than an exciting read, it raises questions that are vital for someone receiving messages that could be from God:- Am I imagining this? Is this from God or am I being deceived? What will happen if I act on this? If difficulty or suffering results, should I trust the next message?
Those of us who have had prophetic words, dreams or visions will not be surprised by the incredulity and scepticism expressed by some of the reviewers. Prophecy is a gift from the Holy Spirit familiar to readers of the Old and New Testaments and experienced by many Christians today, yet rejected by other religious people. So in an open marketplace, such a book was bound to be controversial.
In order to enjoy it, you will at least need to suspend disbelief in its supernatural roots.


TNIV Thinline Bible XL (Bible Tniv)
TNIV Thinline Bible XL (Bible Tniv)
by Zondervan Publishing
Edition: Hardcover

3.0 out of 5 stars A mixed blessing, 30 Nov. 2014
This is the inclusive-language version of the widely accepted New International Version. "Whatever its strengths were, the TNIV divided the evangelical Christian community," said Zondervan president Moe Girkins [in 2009]. "So as we launch this new NIV, we will discontinue putting out new products with the TNIV." Caveat emptor.
Our church opted for the TNIV some years ago, but the font is unusually small and hard to read (it's called "New Age" and designed by Alex Kaczun). Although this printing is "XL" and 9.8 point type, that only refers to the line spacing. There is a Large print edition that is said to be 12 point.


Braun 31S  Electric Shaver Replacement Foil - Silver
Braun 31S Electric Shaver Replacement Foil - Silver
Price: £16.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacement cutter restores shaving performance, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although my Braun shaver reminded me to change the cutters, I ignored this for a few months. Although foil did not disintegrate or go into holes, shaving performance very gradually declined until it was taking twice as long to shave than normal.
This replacement cutter set has restored performance to as new.


Bach, J.S.: Magnificat; Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen, Cantata BWV51
Bach, J.S.: Magnificat; Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen, Cantata BWV51

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully sung with clear diction - great for choral practice, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to gain familiarity with a piece that our choral society is presenting this summer. Having compared half a dozen versions online, I chose this MP3 version, as it is the one with the clearest enunciation and beautiful sound.
John Eliot Gardiner knows what he is doing and the piece comes together very well.
My only complaint, and the reason I gave it four stars rather than five, is that track three is chopped off and has lost the last couple of seconds from the soprano aria Quia respect humilitatem.


Kaiser EW-83 II Lens Hood For Canon
Kaiser EW-83 II Lens Hood For Canon
Price: £17.80

1.0 out of 5 stars Kaiser 6891: CW83E (replaces Canon EW-83 E) NOT EW-83 II, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had to return my purchase as soon as it arrived, because it does not closely resemble the Canon lens Hood EW-83II. It is intended for different lenses as listed on the packaging 6891: CW83E (replaces Canon EW-83 E), for Canon EF-S 10-22/3.5-4.5 USM, Canon EF 17-40/4.0L USM, Canon EF 16-35/2.8L USM (old version).
The Canon hood EW-83 II is intended for the Canon EF 20­-35mm f/3.5­-4.5 USM.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent optical and mechanical build quality, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a low cost Canon lens, this will have wide appeal for different purposes. Optical sharpness is first class even at wide aperture. Auto focus on Canon cameras is accurate even in low light, although the focus speed is slower than with USM lenses. The quality of the build is first-class - without wobble or rattle; movements are smooth, the switch is positive and there is a metal mount. The lens is amazingly small and lightweight.
I use it for indoor low light photography on two Canon SLR's -
As a short portrait telephoto on the (cropped frame sensor) EOS 40D and
As a standard (landscape) lens on the (full frame sensor) EOS 5Dii.
Maximum aperture is F2 .8 and can produce very pleasing out of focus effects, especially as it will focus down to 30 cm. The out of focus bokeh is smooth.
For many photographers on a budget, this would be a better buy than Canon's 50 mm F1.8 offering. Shop around - I found a good deal on Amazon marketplace, fulfilled by Amazon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine flavour for an instant coffee and good value, 1 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first tried this product while it was on offer at the local supermarket and was delighted with it's excellent flavour. This is the best instant coffee I have tasted and it came out on top when reviewed by Which magazine. It doesn't have the full flavour of a beverage freshly prepared from ground coffee, but it comes close. As suggested on the can, I prefer to make it using two teaspoonfuls in mug (250 mL). Being supplied in a metal container with A plastic lid at seals well, the product stays fresh.
