As Benjamin Franklin once said: "In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes." How right old Ben was. Unfortunately, unless you emigrate to Monaco, there's not a lot you can do about the taxes. What you can do is make financial contingency plans for the inevitability of death.

Madrid, the vibrant capital city of Spain, rests right in the center of the country. It is located on the river Manzanares and acts at the political and financial heart of the nation. The city is renowned as one of Spain's most popular tourist destinations and boasts a varied array of cultural attractions. The city's 'Golden Triangle af Art' homes several famous museums including the Museo del Prado and National Archaeological Museum of Spain. For visitors more in touch with music Madrid is home to the Spanish National and RTVE Symphony orchestras. Hotels in Madrid serve as the ideal base to explore the city's historical as well as contemporary attractions.

A few hundred miles to the north east of Madrid you'll find Barcelona. The city, nestled neatly on the Mediterranean coast, boasts many exceptional live music and opera venues. The gothic quarter of Barcelona contains a huge array of iconic medieval architecture including the Sagrada Família church. The church, designed by Antoni Gaudí, was started in 1882 and is still under construction with an expected completion date of 2026. The Camp Nou stadium, famous home to FC Barcelona, and Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys, venue of the 1992 Olympic games, still provide a spectacular backdrop to many sporting venues. The Spanish Grand Prix is also a regular fixture in Barcelona's busy calendar. Check out the many hotels in Barcelona (or Hoteles en Barcelona) available for last minute deals.

It's hugely appropriate that I've been asked to write about the products of Farrey's because over the last week or so Northumberland has been getting incredibly dull in the early evening. Winter really is drawing in up here.

Farrey's are a leading US supplier of lamps and lamp shades, light fittings, desk lamps and various other household fixtures. In this post I'm concentrating on lamps, of which they have a mind-boggling array from dozens of different manufacturers. Buffet lamps, pharmacy lamps (whatever they are) and piano lamps are just some of the different varieties on offer. Whether you're after an elegant contemporary feel or a charming old rustic classic they're bound to have the idea lamp to fit your personal taste.

What better way to illuminate the dull winter nights than a Farrey's lamp? For further information visit the Farrey's website.
