5.0 out of 5 stars Goodbye droopy nets, 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are great for your net curtains. Easy to push the rod through the net, and easy to pop onto the fittings (buy separately and invest in some superglue for the fittings).

3.0 out of 5 stars Stylish mugs, 2 Jun. 2014

Stylish mugs, a little bigger than I wanted, with a good weight, neither light nor heavy, but they chip easily.

Does what it says on the tin but be careful when you're using it, this slices skin and flesh without discrimination,

Nice cushion covers, it's all a matter of what you like. The only downside is that they lose their sheen quickly.

2.0 out of 5 stars Noisy and some flimsy bits and pieces., 2 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It has its positives, it looks good and it can deliver a blast of cold air on its lowest setting.

The negatives are as others have mentioned already. This is a noisy fan, I've been spoilt by powerful quiet fans in the past.

The remote has to be pointed from a close range, at the right angle (straight on), and pushed down firmly.

The screw to attach the blade to the motor shaft is very small and I'm waiting for it to pop off.

The biggest problem in terms of its build is the retaining screw to secure the top half to the bottom. Okay, what does it screw into? It's a little screw with a hole to push it into and nothing to grip or screw into, so it falls out. This means I can't move it using the carry handle and have to lift it from the bottom shaft. Plus I'm worried of the top half taking off given that it makes a noise like an aeroplane.

There were few other fans available when I purchased this so I didn't return it, but I wouldn't recommend it.


Companero: The Life and Death of Che Guevara
Companero: The Life and Death of Che Guevara
by Jorge Castaneda
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.48

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent biography but highly subjective, 30 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a decent biography of Che in that it covers the base points and raises questions that may, or may not, be answered in the fullness of time.

On the other hand it also full of innuendo, gossip and tittle tattle, particularly as it relates to the subject's personal life, and is replete with conclusions that have little or no basis in fact, simply in the author's interpretation. An example is the author's interpretation of a letter Che sent to his mother on his first lengthy trip overseas. Minor but irrelevant inclusion of the author's opinion nonetheless.

The author opines that Che is responsible for the many wasted lives, those inspired by him who were to lay down their own lives after his death, he calls it Guevara's debt to history. This is a classic of revisionists, particularly of the chattering classes of the leftist intelligentsia who leave behind their former beliefs and idealism. Anyone who rose up and started a revolution or rebellion is held responsible for all the future bloodshed, the young lives needlessly wasted, and so it commonly goes on along those lines.

A worthwhile read, some interesting points and observations, but also very subjective and filled with the author's 20/20 hindsight.

1.0 out of 5 stars Normally I love Lily Flame ..., 20 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Unfortunately this Lily Flame candle was not up to the standard I was used to with these lovely fragrant candles. Nothing wrong with the fragrance but the burning of this one. It did that thing that Lily Flame don't usually do ... a big thick ring around the outside and only melting around the wick. By the time it had burnt out, the leftover wax was about a third of the tin. Disappointed this time.

1.0 out of 5 stars I don't rate this calculator at all., 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Want a simple calculator to do some multiplication and division? Not this one. I expect that when I switch on a calculator it defaults to the simple calculator functions but this one doesn't.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice enough pen, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This pen is okay, it does the job and looks nice. One problem is that it has a tendency to slip down your fingers.

3.0 out of 5 stars One fell and broke, 11 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought a couple of these and one is still intact. Another fell on the ground outside and broke. So so.
