Recommendation for CP Auto Air Conditioning: Hi Digamextra readers. I would highly recommend CP Auto Air Conditioning for re-gassing my car’s air conditioning today. The system was very smelly and barely working he did his magic and in 45 minutes it’s as cold as the Arctic and smells as fresh as a pine forest. All completed at my home on time and with no mess for only 45€

Jelly beans on the beach! Re. The jelly bean like creatures known as Salps on the beaches of Andalusia.
