Re: What's the procedure for Swine Flu symptoms in Spain?

15 kids in the school with symptoms and you have a kid thats vunerable & you still intend to travel ? I'm glad I got my holidays before the UK schools broke up.

Re: The cost of car hire!!

I will watch this thread with interest. My daughter works for the Irish equivalent of telefonica & is rolling out IPTV. She asked the senior tecchies the same question for me & they said you would need several repeaters. Also cement and water cause serious problems...... :cry: walls and swim...
