Costa de sol news

Went to my local paper shop to collect my Costa and was told that it had finished, not sure if that meant that particular shop was no longer selling it. Anyone else had problems?

Re: Bird migration this year

The Bee Eaters arrived yesterday (5th April) a week later than last year, they congregate here, North Antequera, then most move on to other nesting sites.

Re: Pay as you go

Didn't explain myself very well, sorry, I should have said a prepaid phone card, probable had a senior moment, I have a Movistar contract but do not pay the extra for UK calls as I make very few. The shop that I previously used has stopped selling them.

Re: British-style Bacon

I haven't tried smoking the meat in a smoke house or smoke kettle, the company produce a smoky flavour salt, as I was never keen on smoked bacon I haven't tried the salts.

Re: British-style Bacon

I asked for advice on this site some months ago and since then I have been curing my own bacon and ham. Curing salts come from Butchers Sundries, I use the Easicure Bacon and Ham mix. It is so quick and easy, 6 days curing in fridge then ready to cook or freeze. I have a ready supply of bacon anytime.

I also check out the times with Heavens above, I am not a morning person so write down the times and directions for the evening passes. I always give it a wave. I find it amazing that you can have a time a week in advance and it is always passes on that time.

Check out a good map in advance and write out the main details in big letters to have beside you, if you feel a bit panicky find a safe place to stop and check. The roads in Spain a...

Re: Cycle races 2015

The Vuelta de Andalucia starts Wednesday 18th feb,it should be a good one as Contador and Froome are on the start list.It will be televised (I think) on canal sur.Also Spanish television has signed for 2yrs with Italian tele provider to show the Giro and other Italian cycle races.

Re: Pain killers for dogs ?

Yes Katy I would have said that magnets were a load of nonsense the problem with that is I have used the bioflow collars on six different dogs over the years and it has worked. The dogs couldn't be faking as maybe a human would or been brain washed. If it hadn't worked of course my next step would h...

Re: Pain killers for dogs ?

For many years now as soon as my older dogs start getting a bit stiff when walking I treat them to a bioflow collar (magnet). Within days they are like new dogs,they keep the collars on all the time. I am not sure why they seem to work so well on dogs, never did me much good, but it is amazing to se...

Re: CORREOS/Amazon

Seur (when delivering Amazon parcels) always send me an email the day before they come, if I am not in another email arrives with suggestions for future delivery for me to fill in and send back. Private sales made through Amazon but not going through their warehouses often come regular correos.
