4.0 out of 5 stars Another good post it note range from 3M, 8 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are nice large-sized Post It notes; we received in pale yellow. These notes are lined 300 sheets, which is useful to have, which catches the eye rather well. They have sufficient space to write more than just a few words. On comparison with other Post It notes we have, is that there is a marked adhesive properties. The Canary Yellow allows us to pigeonhole items that we have tagged. These are very good as an ad hoc distribution list, for documents/articles that need a few people to see, and maybe comment on. These notes can be used more than once, with little effect on their adhesions properties.

Another good post it note range from 3M.

Rapesco Display Book - A4, 10 Pocket
Price: £4.38

4.0 out of 5 stars Rapesco Display Book - A4, 8 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Lightweight Display Book, by Rapesco permits you to store and safeguard your assignment, a set of reference documents and or presentation in a well-ordered manner. The inside of the Display Book is 10 plastic sleeves/pockets. These sleeves/pockets will fit paper work of A4 size. The interior pockets are full height and are designed to safeguard print will not lift off. All of which lends itself to professional feel. The black PVC robust plastic cover is useful, as it keeps the book rigid and robust. So if the user, so desired, they can keep the display book clean using a damp or dry cloth. Along the spine is a full length label that came removed and customised to indicate what the subject of the file is.

By and large the Rapesco Brand makes some pretty good items of stationery and this item is worthy of good four stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good phone with useful features, 5 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The AEG M1220 1.8-Inch Candy bar UK SIM-Free Mobile Phone is a basic functions phone with large buttons. It is quick and easy to set up, and very straightforward to use. When offered the phone we got for an elderly relative who finds the buttons easy to use with her arthritic fingers. The text size is changeable, the screen clear and relatively easy to read. The selected ring tone, which we set, was clear and loud, the text alert sound was OK. The phone’s address book was easy to access. The dual sim facility is very handy to have, if you want to utilise the extra sim slot while on holiday overseas. The blue tooth and SD card slot give additional functionality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Designed to clean between the teeth - and they do the job nicely, 2 Dec. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is our third set of Tepe brushes,which will be used for the molar teeth at the back of the mouth.These brushes have been strongly recommended by our dentist for better dental care. You need to check to out find which sizes of ‘Interdental Brushes’ are for you, as mistakes in purchasing could be a costly exercise. As one reviewer has mentioned these brushes have a short life – but they seem/feel effective.


Jampires by Sarah McIntyre (4-Sep-2014) Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Sam finds himself in jammy situation, when he bites into a dried-out jam doughnut, 1 Dec. 2016
This is a book where the narrative gives the reader a `sweet tooth' laden fun and unpredictability - but very much a child friendly tale.

When Sam bites into a dry doughnut, the quick-witted jam aficionado sets up a cunning plan to entrap the robbers who seemed to have sucked his jam doughnuts dry. He soon finds two culprits who are infant `Jampires', these unusual creatures introduce him, via somewhat mystic trip, to Jampire Land. This is where his adventures really begin. Sarah McIntyre comes to fore with her brilliantly imaged illustrations that entertain and gel so very well with the narrative - if anything the combination is very much a `force-multiplier that makes the story appeal both to the child and the parent. This is a book that is jam packed with goodness - pun intended, sorry just could not help it.

5.0 out of 5 stars British athlete and adventurer fleshed out her next Herculean task, 1 Dec. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
.

Sarah Outen successful rowed from Australia in 124 days, 14 hours and 9 minutes before arriving, on the island of Mauritius, on 3 August 2009. She was to become the youngest person and the first woman to row alone across the Indian Ocean in 2009. Once Outen was on shore, she had to deal with a number of quick fired questions; however, one question supplants itself inside her bold and exploratory mind set: ‘what next?’

It was not until several months later that British athlete and adventurer fleshed out her next Herculean task. Her plan was for a global trek by an ocean rowing, kayak and bike. The 20,000 miles journey was organized to take two and half years to complete. Her following great adventure began on 1 April 2011, when Outen set off on a voyage/mission called "London2London: Via the World". As part of her trip Outen rowed solo from Japan to Alaska and on the way, she had to embattle hazardous seas, cargo ships, sickness and her boat being overturned five times. She also fought the emotional battle of being in isolation.

Dare to Do: Taking on the planet by bike and boat is a well written narrative, by a person who knows how to convey her thoughts and adventures on to the printed form. There is collection of good coloured photographic plates; it would have been nicer to have more. However, Sarah Outen’s words really bring to the fore her amazing travels and I am glad she has shared them with us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kipling Women's Orelie Top-Handle Bag, Grey (828 Warm Grey), 30 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
.

This is very much my partner’s review; this is a good bag if you want one larger than the Kipling customary size. I was able to fit in A4 pads and my regular size iPad. It is good for traveling as all valuables and documents fit into it, as it is large and strong. It is great for flying as I was able to have everything I needed on the plane with me and not worry about things being in the overhead locker. The colour is very smart looking and goes with everything. It is a practical shape but it is best to also get a separate purse or bag for money/cards/small items so they are not lost at the bottom of the bag.

It has one main compartment, inside which there are the usual slip pockets for mobile phone, pens etc., as well as a zipped pocket if you want to put your purse somewhere extra safe. There is a fair bit of space here so if you are buying relatively small items, you will get a fair amount in here. If you like, Kipling because you like a bag with additional pockets , then this might be the one for you - Moreover, if you are looking for a bag a bit bigger than a handbag to accompany you on a shopping, travel or work then this might just be the one.

SpeedLink Snappy 4-Port Passive USB 3.0 Hub
SpeedLink Snappy 4-Port Passive USB 3.0 Hub
Price: £21.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good USB 3 hub, 30 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good little Four USB 3.0 port hub, which is plug and play out of the box. As USB, ports on a desktop or laptop can soon be used up connecting various other peripheral devices, a device such as this good to have at hand. While the ports are USB 3, this hub is also backwards compatible so you can utilize your USB 2.0 and 1.1 devices. The form factor is nice and small so this unit lends itself to portability. As it is a passive USB hub, no additional power supply is necessary.

If there were any shortcoming then it would be the short cable length of the unit, otherwise a well-built and fairly robust unit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, 29 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Dual band phone does well as a good backup phone to keep in the car or use when abroad (with country sim) to reduce charges. Battery life is good. Still very basic but does have a few extra features, without the complication of being a smartphone and easy to navigate. Only real criticisms are that it doesn't have predictive text, so have to write absolutely everything out, and if you take a photo you can't send it to anyone in a text. Radio is fine, comes with headset.


Earth-Shattering Events: Earthquakes, Nations and Civilization

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a fascinating subject, 28 Nov. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An earthquake is the observable shaking of the surface of the Earth, resulting from the sudden release of energy in the Earth's crust that creates seismic waves. The seismicity movement of an area refers to the frequency, type and size of earthquakes experienced over a period of time. A record of earth motion as a function of time is called a seismogram. This book is almost a reference to those larger seismic events and how those quakes have impacted and changed the history of the populace of the regions/cities, which they, in some cases devastated. There is a look at "Earthquake environmental effects, such as tsunamis as well as diverse seismic sources such as volcanic, tectonic and oceanic". The field of Seismology includes aforementioned events.

Mankind has had to live seismic events throughout known history, and this book shows us how it has shaped both the narrative of human settlements as well shaping their destiny. Thus, the author goes through earthquakes like London, England 1750, Lisbon, Portugal 1755, Caracas, Venezuela 1812, Naples, Italy 1857, San Francisco, CA, USA, 1903. With the most recent being Fukushima, Japan, quake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown of 2011. In this case, there was an undersea megathrust earthquake off the coast of Japan. “It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded to have hit Japan, and the fourth most powerful earthquake in the world”. The net result was the generation of a Tsunami wave, flooding, mudslides, fires, building and substructure destruction, nuclear events together with radiation discharges.

All in this a fascinating subject that leads off to different areas. There are Interesting black and white plates are at the commencement of each section and a pertinent bibliography and note for further reading found at the end of the book. This is a book that is both clear, concise in its approach and above all an enjoyable read that draws in the subject into layperson terminology.
