i know, it just seems so high but thats what you get for "partaking of the flesh" too many times!, actually the dog is probably the easiest and cheapest, just dry feed, its the damn rugrats who eat you out of house and home

Land is so plentiful and cheap in central Portugal that you can buy a few acres of pine and eucalyptus and have free fuel for life!
