If you look at the reviews of Barrettine Methylated Spirit 500ml by Greaves and Co. (can't post it as an external link) there are 261 of them, going back years.  I haven't laughed so much in a long time.  All clean, tongue-in-cheek fun but it's clear Amazon haven't the resources to check everything on their site.


Looked it up. Absolutely hilarious.   :D :D :D

I've had a busy week, had to drive from home, Portsmouth to Maidstone, on Monday and Tuesday, 204 miles each time. I used to commute to London for 3 years until 10 years ago, my two journeys reminded me what a crappy life I had then! It was my own fault, I was offered good money to supervise a few people and couldn't resist it. I was so pleased when my contract ended.

When I got back to Portsmouth on Tuesday I felt good and decided to go for a run around Farlington Marshes, a local bird sanctuary. I run here most days and the best I've done on this circuit is 24 mins, 33 secs. On Tuesday I ran it in 23 mins 21 secs, I couldn'y believe it, that's similar to the times I used to achieve before I had my prostate removed in 2015. I felt so good!

Then I went and spoilt it all! I went to the pub last night, drank too much and now have a hangover to get rid of. In about an hour I'm going to stroll about 5 miles around Queen Elizabeth Country Park, that's the best I can do today.

When I came downstairs this morning my wife had that 'look' of disapproval on her face!

The most likely explanation is that Amazon made an error, they're not infallible, mistakes can and do occur in such an enormous organisation as theirs.


They certainly do.  I'm a great fan of Amazon but they've taken their eye off the ball with the Customer Reviews of one of the products they're offering.

I live in Birchhill beside Swinley Forest, so Newbury is about 12 miles away

Hi all,
I have been a avid walker for about 30 years. Try and do one walk a week of about 7 to 12 miles and a few long distance paths in the year.
I also put together a online magazine covering the walks I do, with maps directions, photos and videos.
