3.0 out of 5 stars Only OK, 17 July 2014
This review is from: Rio Quick Waxer (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm a bloke so cannot understand the maintenance women have to put themselves through! Passed to female co tester I understand that "It's OK if you take into account it is only meant for small areas. It is though time consuming and fiddly so not too enthralled"

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality product!, 17 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Another product I just don't even begin to understand! Passed to my female co-tester for evaluation and the brisk answer was "Excellent, as good as it gets, buy it"!

Very much "does what it says on the tin". A very effective nightlight.

5.0 out of 5 stars First class movie for grown ups!, 16 July 2014
This review is from: The Company Men [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
When i gave it five stars the screen flashed back "I love it !". Well sorry Amazon I didn't, I didn't even like it! This though is a very good film in every way but especially the writing. The truth of each scene comes out of the screen.

Anyone feel free to skip this paragraph of auto- biography. It happened to me at 37 and the subsequent few years reflected a lot of the Ben Affleck character's story line. I have a small tip: If you are a manager/executive don't be concerned when you think you are underpaid - trust me that often means your job is safe, but when you see your pay hit the Bank and you think "I'm not worth that much" start to worry as a reality check may be around the corner.

If you have ever suffered in this situation you'll recognise the fundamental truths of this film, if not watch it and learn without the pain of it happening to you.

Good job, well done, to all concerned!


Ring Automotive RCT1 European Travel Kit

5.0 out of 5 stars First Class!, 22 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ring shoot themselves in the foot a little by calling this a European kit as it is still a great value for money buy if you never cross the channel. It seems to include most things you could want in an emergency at a low cost.

Only one flaw. When you open the cardboard box the carrt bag has it's two zips fastened together by a little plastic lock. It took me half an hour to find something that would cut it open. Small thing but if Ring read this review...

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing in it's favour!, 19 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I would love to chat to the designer of this! There is nothing good about it! Like many people the only wrong with the punch I've been using is it jams if too many sheets are punched at one time. This brings even more problems to contend with and then is also capable of jamming! Avoid! The same maker has this at less than a fiver http://www.amazon.co.uk/Desktop-Punch-Rapesco-2-Hole-punch/dp/B000J69M3Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1403191882&sr=8-1&keywords=hole+punch

It was a real effort to watch this through to the end. Such a stellar cast promised much but delivered little.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job - very well !, 19 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
That sums up what my female friend told me after I passed this to her. She used it for a fortnight before telling me it was worth 5/5 as she could not see how it could be improved - especially as it was free!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the business!, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
as anyone who remembers the original issue from 1976 will know. What sets this remastered reissue CD at five stars though is (apart from the bonus tracks) the excellent informative booklet of words and photos which is part of the package. This is why we have to avoid digital downloads and keep music tangible!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply stunning !, 25 May 2014
This review is from: Colour Deconstructed (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a glorious celebration of colour. At the first glance through I had to resist removing some pages and having them framed! It's a bit of a "coffee table book" and also a luxury, but in a good way.
