Although my experience is here in Spain, many of these companies are international. I spoke to our internet providers and they have put us on hold for a set fee of 4 euros a month. It meant that the ...

Agreed with above. We set out to create what we wanted when on holiday but it's also useful to talk to friends. I had no idea that a make-up mirror and full-length mirror were so essential. When ch ...
