Joseph Joseph Curve Speedy Peeler, Green
Joseph Joseph Curve Speedy Peeler, Green

5.0 out of 5 stars Best peeler I've ever had, March 11 2012
The curve on this peeler wraps around potatoes and carrots making them quick and easy to peel. The curve is a bit tight for large vegetables like turnips.

5.0 out of 5 stars She loves it, March 11 2012
I bought this game for my 15 year old daughter. She loves it, playing for hours at a time. With no preset storyline, she travels as she pleases through wild beautiful scenery, visiting places and villages, meeting people, overcoming dangers and obstacles.

1.0 out of 5 stars Add customs and duty fees to this item, March 4 2011
Expect extra charges from Shopping at Clares. I ordered this item with prepaid shipping and Canada Post wanted an additional $21. I refused to pay and the box was returned. After a month and 3 emails, they refunded the $30 but not the shipping charges.
The package was shipped from the U.S. and the charges may have been duty, border crossing fees, etc., I don't know. HST would be $3.60 in B.C. Import fees are NOT reasonable from an Amazon.ca sale - a company that presents itself as Canadian.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, tough scissors, Jan. 29 2011
These are strong, solid, tough sharp scissors. They look and feel like quality. One cutting edge is serrated. There is a notch at the base of one blade (not visible in the picture) that catches and holds flower stems, bones, or similar items. The grippers on the handle below the hinge will open bottles or small jar lids. I appreciate that my fingers fit in the handle holes, they are cramped in most other scissors. Wusthoff advertises these as kitchen shears and I`ve no doubt they would cut up a chicken with ease. I bought two pairs and gave one as a Christmas present.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good design, Jan. 29 2011
I like this ladle because the ladle end stays off the table when it sits. The handle is weighted and tilts the ladle up. Of course, if you leave enough food in the ladle, it will tilt down. It's safe for non-stick cookware, stovetop and dishwasher safe. I bought the flexible turner first, then ordered this ladle, the spoon, and the slotted spoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good design, Jan. 29 2011
I like this turner because the flipper stays off the counter when it sits. The handle is weighted and tilts the turner up. Of course, if you leave enough food on the turner, it will tilt down. The flipper is narrower than most I've seen, 2" or 5cm, too narrow to flip eggs but good for stir-fry's and most frying pan meals. It's safe for non-stick cookware, stove-top and dishwasher safe. I bought this item first, then ordered the Joseph Joseph spoon, the ladle, and slotted spoon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well designed, Jan. 29 2011
I like this spoon because the spoon end stays off the table when it sits. The handle is weighted and tilts the spoon end up. Of course, if you leave enough food in the spoon, the spoon will tilt down. I also like the spoon size - medium, good for stirring or serving. It's safe for non-stick cookware, the stove-top and dishwasher. I bought the flexible turner first, then ordered this spoon, the ladle, and the slotted spoon.

3.0 out of 5 stars small tray, Jan. 5 2011
The tray is just over 6"x12", the tray bottom is 4"x11". It has a matte finish and appears to be sturdy. The tray looks ok, but is not finely crafted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Dec 24 2010
If you are new to pic microcontrollers and can program in C, buy this book.

This is a cookbook on pic microcontrollers and external devices. The book describes the architecture of pic microcontrollers and focuses on internal/external interrupts and timers. It builds interfaces to LEDs, LCDs, RS232 ports, PWM devices like stepper motors, and the SP1 bus. The book uses a version of the microcontroller that has built-in RS232 and PWM hardware and that simplifies those interfaces. The author guides you through the hardware set-up, and 'creates' the software, line by line, using the free Ti-Tech C pic compiler. The authors software is can be downloaded from the his web-site, note that he expects you to know the C programming language.

This book shows clearly how to use pic's, scratches the surface of possibilities for pic microcontrollers, and leaves you with the foundation to move beyond.

I'd also like to recommend '123 PIC Microcontroller Experiments for the Evil Genius' by Myke Predko. This book introduces you to pics and teaches the C programming language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long term survival, Oct. 14 2010
This book is really about long term wilderness survival. There is a section on evasion but the author suggests you should be where no one is looking rather than one step ahead of pursuers, and the book discussed surviving in 'the middle of nowhere'. This book is well written, full of information, and an enjoyable read.
