He spent 3hrs cleaning all 4 told me 2 weren't working and needed replacing. He said Jocel had folded due to being unable to get parts from China and that I should have two n...

Re: The secret

Red Chilis are the secret in this and as you say getting them can be difficult in UK. I have found the best is to grow your own - In portugal I grow them outside in large pots, but u must remember to water them a lot At home I start the seeds (from a standard portuguese piri box at Pingo) in a small...

Re: mobile dongles for sale

No Chris, only Vodafone or MEO and you would need a monthly wifi package (24.99?) I tried NOS some time ago and it was very poor. I am currently on a connected system with MEO, which is nearly €35/mth but it is unlimited downloads. Most systems are limited to 30mb/mth and they charge you an exorbita...
