Also, The Casablanca does an excellent lunch : for 9euros you get two courses ( starters and main or main and dessert), quart of wine...

I think it's all about what rocks your boat. For me, that is food ( among other things, I hastily add) I would sacrifice 10 mediocre meals out to have the experience of dining in what is supposedly the best restaurant in the world. I'm not saying it would be the best dining experience I would ever h...

I have to say that for the 95+% of us who are on some sort of budget,this news is completely irrelevant in practice! Of course it is John.

There seems to be various shots. My doctor said I should have one type and my wife (younger) will use a different type. Do you know which is best?

No idea BD, perhaps one of our resident medical experts can help. We got the pandremix.
Good luck!

Just an update on the symptoms of the swine flu vaccination : both kids had high temps today, over 39degrees. However, apart from being washed out and tired, they were in good spirits. On a positive note, they were both in bed tonight for 7.30pm, usually having high jinks until at least 9ish. Thinki...

Salut Max
Je vais essayer d'écrire en francais ...
Est-ce que vous pourriez vérifier s'il faut attendre le bon de vaccination ou est ce qu'on peut aller directement aux centres medicaux?
On est résident en france depuis 2002.
