Oliver and Lisa Phillips I'm sorry of your situation. All others which have property like this can fall into the same trap. We bought a similar apartment in 2006 for investement. The useage of renting during the summer times isn't capable of providing money, overall. The capital gains after the 15 y...

That restaurant closed the doors a few bit back. I passed there last week and it's empty now. Too bad, I only ate there twice.

I think tonight will have some fireworks but I'm not sure where. Certainly the dry area will keep the fireworks within the Pyrenees but the coast would be a good place to sit on the beach and look upwards.

I loaded the filmon app onto my Nexus 10 tablet. The filmon was okay and the sharpness was great but when I put the HDMI cable to the TV, the quality was dropped quite a bit.

For me anyway, I'll keep working with my G-Box except if things change and I have to swap to the tablet system.
