Re: New adventures

Love your new kitchen, specially the cabinets. The floor tiles look very similar to what we ordered to get fitted it January. Snow and slush will be very different to what you were used to.

Re: Ozzy Osbourne to relocate from Los Angeles to the UK

Can't say I blame him for getting out of LA, as the crime does seem to be getting worse there, and is, unfortunately the criminals are creeping into the suburbs. There are plenty places he could...

Re: Bank Requesting Primary US Residential Address
