1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and nasty, 29 Feb. 2012
I've been using these now for a few months, and they're so flimsy that one or two of them break each time just by opening them to take the washing off the line. Don't think cheap and cheerful, think cheap and nasty. I wouldn't recommend these to my worst enemy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great buy., 29 Feb. 2012
I mostly play my CDs in the car, and these super-slim cases allow me to get twice as many in the glove compartment. Only slightly bigger than the disc itself, the flat edge allows stacking in my CD rack and again I can get more discs per shelf. I think they're great!

4.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but excellent, 29 Feb. 2012
I ordered these on behalf of someone who, due to a leg problem, can't wear full-length wellies. Apparently they are excellent boots, though I personally bought Dunlop ones, very similar and very good quality, for a fraction of the price. The wearer is delighted with the Hunter's however, and was happy to pay the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars If you love Robicheaux, you'll hate this., 29 Feb. 2012
This review is from: In the Electric Mist [DVD] (DVD)
I've read all of Burke's Robicheaux novels, and loved every one of them. I'm also a long-time Tommy Lee Jones fan, but he's totally wrong for the part of Dave. As if his casting isn't bad enough, the casting of Steenburgen as the tawny-haired, voluptuous Boots is just a travesty. In answer to a previous reviewer they slashed 20 minutes out of it for the DVD because the film bombed at the box office and went straight to disc. With or without that 20 minutes, it may be ok if you don't read Burke's books, but if you do its appalling!
Incidentally, I contacted James Lee Burke about the miscasting, and he agreed saying once he sells the film rights he's allowed no say in who plays whom. How sad is that?


Wizard: The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla
Wizard: The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla

5.0 out of 5 stars Prodigal Genius, 28 Feb. 2012
My first encounter with the amazing Nikola Tesla was when I came across an old paperback called Prodigal Genius. Genius he truly was, and this book is another account of his brilliance. He was painfully naive, concentrating on doing the science while the likes of Westinghouse, Marconi and the so-called "great inventor" Edison (whom I call the great charlatan) stole and patented his works.

Read the facts and marvel at the man who was certainly the greatest inventor of the 19th century, often called "the man who invented the 20th century".

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Callan, 4 Feb. 2012
I loved the TV series, although looking at videos of the "monochrome years" I have to say it was clearly made on the cheap. The TV version of this story, "A Magnum For Schneider", was set almost entirely in three locations; Callan's flat, Hunter's office and Schneider's flat. It worked fine at the time, but this remake has far better production values. Much as I love the original this is superior, with Schneider living in a country mansion and the action spread over several locations. Callan fans will love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent product, 18 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Rear Universal Dog Guard (Misc.)
The instructions are rubbish, which cost it a star, but I discarded those and laid out all the bits. It was obvious how they went together, and I assembled it in 10 minutes. Fitting to the estate car was a bit awkward, though only due to having to crouch in a limited space, but once installed its a sturdy barrier which will stop the boisterous pup from interfering with the driver!

Extremely adjustable, it should fit a wide range of cars.

Offered by xiguauu
Price: £0.82

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful, 18 Jan. 2012
As only one light in my house has a screw-in bulb fitting, I deemed it more convenient to convert it to bayonet fitting and only buy one type of bulb. Its a simple device, and fits in seconds. Well worth the price.

Offered by grabbanicepairltd
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 18 Jan. 2012
These are great wellies at a knockdown price! When you see the Dunlop name, you know you don't need to worry about the quality, and similar wellies from some other makers can cost several times as much.
The delivery time was amazingly quick, and the boots are comfy and sturdy; I feel sure they'll last a long time!
