This is another plant that lives only in the evening. In the UK you have "Evening primrose" which does something very similar.

Re: TV recomendatioms

Try some of the foreign programmes from "Walter presents" through the All 4 on demand. They have subtitles in English but some very good series, otherwise Us series "The Wire" and "The Sopranos"

Re: Easy Jet Winter Schedule

Booked flight for October from Luton to Paphos. Quite a good price but certainly NO DISCOUNT on hold luggage, that has cost more than one way for two people returning to Luton.

Even if the Judge decides not to send her to prison or fine her, she will still be a convicted person which has other consequences when in the future she may travel elsewhere. The US do not allow co...
