Let me share the latest info about Net10 Unlimited for cell phones without a contract, that is to say, with no surprise bills and no credit checks. This is how the Net10 service works: activate your Net10 phone from their site and make a first call, download a ringtone or send a message to test it. To keep your service active, add an airtime card, which can be purchased online, at a nearby store, or directly from your phone. When you need more minutes, you can buy airtime cards from their webpage.
These are the monthly plans: Easy Minutes Plus plan starting at $15 for 200 minutes; Pay-as-you-go Plans, and Unlimited minutes, text and web for $50 a month with nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity. Switch between them each month to suit your budget and airtime needs, without penalties or fees.
As regards international long distance, service is available to over 75 countries, for about 15 cents per minute on calls originated in the US. International Neighbors program, currently available to Canada and Mexico, gives you a special phone number that your family and friends can use to reach you.
Net10 only uses trusted phone manufacturers such as LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung. You can choose a simple phone starting from $15, one with essential features, such as camera, video recorder, blue tooth capability, mobile web and more for under $40, or a full QWERTY keyboard phone, slider phone, and touch screen phone, available for under $60.
I know this is quite a lot of info! Nonetheless, if you are interested in their services, which can be useful both for business or in your everyday life, you will find out more on Facebook and Twitter, or you can view the following videos.

Panellets (small marzipan cakes)Ingredients• 500 g of ground raw almonds• 500 g of sugar• An egg white• Grated lemon peel• 100 g of boiled potatoes• For coating: one egg white, 500 g of pine nuts, an egg
Boil a potato with its skin, let it cool, peel and crush it. In a bowl, mix almond flour with sugar and grated lemon peel. Add the crushed potatoes and mix it all. Add the beaten egg whites and knead until well integrated into a ball with all the ingredients. Make small balls outh of the dough. Dip them in the beaten egg white and coat with pine nuts. Put them in the oven tray. Paint them over with beaten egg and put in the oven at 170 º for 10 minutes. They are ready to eat when cool.
I shared the best known recipe for panellets — you can make them without potato, or use sweet potato instead. It's not an easy one, but it's worth a try as these cookies can reach very high prices in bakeries. I hope you enjoyed it and, by the way, do you have any favourite Halloween recipe?

As I have no news about my book, I will talk about work: I'm currently proofreading two books. One of them, dealing with Death Metal, is written by a professor with a degree in art history who approaches the subject with all due respect — fifty hundred pages full of related words such as grind which is grindcore which is hardcore punk or crust punk and in no way is goregrind which is gore and something more, perhaps grind, that make the book impossible to edit, especially considering that the book is in Spanish. It’s not a bad book to work on, though, at least not as much as the most challenging books for me, which happen to be cookbooks. Few syntax, a dozen verbs and tones of ingredients: cookbooks are like a feast of vocabulary. Not only sandwiches, protein snacks, apples, beers, but lists and more lists of disturbing things such as cherimoya, turbot, brine, cephalopods... all likely to be misspelled or at least be suspicious. Let’s forget about cookbooks. The other book I’m currently proofreading is about graphic humor in Mexico, fortunately as funny as its title suggests, with many illustrations and a gripping story of protests against corrupt governments and semi-clandestine publications: one of those books that are a work worth doing.
What about you, what genre of books would you like to work on?
