Good quality cheeses. As it was a "Gift box of cheese" it's a little surprising that the was no option to include a gift message! Need to sorry that put. Apart from that very good

5.0 out of 5 stars Humax remote, 10 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my third remote for my Humax box. The original lasted about two years. The non-original replacement about 5 until suddenly fing on me a week or so ago. This latest has far better functionality than either of its predecessors. Whether it will last longer we will see but for the moment I'm very happy

5.0 out of 5 stars Communications are as clear as a bell up to 70mph (130kph) and the connection to the GPS is also excellent. A very good buy, 28 July 2014

My old Bluetooth helmet system was showing its age and it was time for an update. The 6 years that separate the two systems show how far the technology has come on. Communications are as clear as a bell up to 70mph (130kph) and the connection to the GPS is also excellent.
A very good buy. Recommended
(NB I have the Scala SOLO version; ie no 2nd kit and no possibility for conversing with a pillion or other bike)

4.0 out of 5 stars Blowing hot and cold, 30 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for my mum who's coming up to 91 in July. She'd fallen and spent some time in hospital last year. Moved from there to a half-way house which was wonderful but took all initiative away from her. She was turning into a cauliflower floret in super-rapid time. Got her out, stairlift, microwave (never had one before) and she's pulled it all back (never go into care!) and is her old self again. Got the work-top freezer so she could order in some m'waveable meals and 1) be able to store them safely at the right temperature and 2) always have something in the house that she'd like to eat and wouldn't require her to use the oven etc. Product is spot on. She's unplugged it and keeps her magazines in there. Ho hum

This review is from: The Uncommon Reader (Hardcover)
A moment of pure joy. A beautifully crafted, little jewel of a book. The Queen has arguably never been so intimately nor so sympathetically portrayed; nor her world so comprehensively skewered. An absolute must read for royalists and republicans alike

3.0 out of 5 stars The Rage and the Bile, 14 Jan. 2003
This review is from: The Rage and Pride (Hardcover)
This extraordinary outburst by Fallacci is the latest in a long line of "revenge-writings" where she flushes out her critics in order to knock them flat. Nothing she writes could possibly be termed "politically correct". In her mind there is no doubt that there exists a state of war between the world of Islam and the West; not a war of religion, but a war where a religion is pitted against a way of life. Our liberalism is the chink in our armour that is being exploited by cynical clerics who are attempting to undermine the foundations of our society.
No-one is spared the lashing of her pen: the Islamists, the British, the French, to a lesser extent the Americans and, above all, the Italians. It is a courageous diatribe, right or wrong, and gives the impression that it was written in one long session and at break-neck speed. "Know thine enemy" could be a sub-title, and one that could be interpreted in both directions.
This is not a manual of international diplomacy nor an even-handed exposé of politics in the M.East. It is a wake-up call from someone who believes our society, along with our lives, to be threatened and who is fighting her perceived enemies with all the means at her diposal. To be read as one would walk through a minefield: tread carefully and you'll emerge from the other side with a good deal of satisfaction.
