I agree you can get Amex, and various credit cards but they are in the minority here, unlike the UK, maybe London like Paris have a higher usage.

So from what I gather an " Electron" card is for people within the UK banking system who want to add another card to their list of Credit cards. Could this be why the UK is in melt down. Incidently if "El...

Pines you may have probs with, but fast growing conifers will attain a good height in 5 yeas.

A Pépiniériste will be best for advice, you have one at Bompas, a couple your side of Perpignan.

As far as removal Pebbles is near you and may be able to help!!
