Reading that must be what people watching their numbers roll out on the lottery must go through!
Hello. Is it not a good thing that she feels free enough with you to smoke in front of you? I often smoked in front of my bosses when outside and they didn't care as long as I was working and getting the job done
I'll look into that, thanks for the info!

Hello. All these plans that come from the government are at the end of the day a money racket because that is what they do! They come up with new ways to make money from the population on a regular basis. But why do we need them to spur us into action? Banning cars and whatever else they can think
Hello. Dakar, you should look into establishing a food Forest
Hello again. I looked into apples a good bit at the time and although I have forgotten about exact numbers, here is what I came up with. A full size apple tree can produce between 60 and 150 kg of apples so we could take it as a 100kg average. If you put only 10 trees to the acre that is 1 ton of
Yeah, but it's teagasc that holds the keys to the grant for it
