Re: fishing

So just think what they will do when trucks of non EU goods are coming through France to the channel ports to catch ferries to the UK! Farage on LBC radio said he expected them to be “ reasonable” !!

“Expats” or “Immigrants”

Interesting new post on this website where a poster describes himself as an “ expat”. Searching the site for the word “ expat” I see a South African also describing himself as a “ South African expat” Why do we tend to describe ourselves as “ expats” but describe others as “ immigrants” I have never...

Re: Exhuming Franco

“only two marked tombs being Franco and De Valero“ ??
Is that the Texas missionary??

.. on a lighter note, is there a golf course nearby? Maybe Trump will be visiting soon!

Sorry, I’ll go now....

Re: World Cup 2018

So if the two football teams ran round and round the pitch in formation with one guy in front wearing a yellow jersey, that would be more interesting would it? #justsaying

Re: Bb4spain & iplayer

I fell out with BB4S a few months ago. Fibre optic became available in Nerja so I asked BB4S if I could keep their iptv on subscription (€15 per month) if I changed to Axartel fibre optic internet. They refused so I ditched them completely. I established that their premium iptv inc Sky is illegal so...

Re: Patio chair cushions

Thanks Wicksey, I gave up and went to Ikea!
A bit more expensive but better quality and they had the right colour!

Patio chair cushions

Does anyone know of large China Bazaar shops in the Malaga to Nerja area currently having stocks of patio chair cushions? We're looking for a colour match and need to search around!
It's the larger lounger types we need, not the small dining chair type.
Many thanks in great anticipation!

Re: Bramley apple trees

The last time my family was involved in a plant "blight" was in 1855 in Ireland when, as a result of the Potato famine, my great great grandfather eloped to the cotton mills of Lancashire with his childhood sweetheart ( they were both 14 years old). I wouldn't dream of besmirching his memo...

Re: Bramley apple trees

Thanks for the advice. I've been Google researching the topic too today and found this. As our chosen garden area seldom gets full sun and in view of this recent winter weather, I think we'll give it a try!

Bramley apple trees

Is there any reason why a Bramley apple tree, brought over from the UK, would not grow/ flourish in Spain ?

Re: Malaga vs Barca tickets

If Malaga had shown this commitment earlier in the season they wouldn’t be where they are now. The biggest problem is they cant score. En - Nesyri was completely isolated up front with no support from the midfield. He vainly attempted constantly to force his way through a solid Barca defense but st...

Re: The rain in Spain

You are correct Flexo that water also evaporates from plants through the stomata which are pores.These pores are mostly on the underside of leaves however to prevent excessive evaporation. The process is called Transpiration. I referred to Photosynthesis in terms of water use by the fig plant in Lav...
