Re: Retirement, Gran Canaria

Thanks for correction. Gasóleo it is.
(Every time Windows 10 does an update, my keyboard defaults to English. I also on occasion lose sound and have to re-set. Skype too sometimes decides not to work).

Sorry, gas is gasolina, in Spain, as you may know if you spend any time there !.I can't find where I mentioned Diesel !!


It's gasoleo. Americans call it gas. I do spend a bit of time here. Twelve years as resident come February.

Re: MERRY CHRISTMAS

Have you heard about Bobby the brown nosed reindeer? He's right behind Rudolph the red nosed reindeer. He can run as fast, but can't stop as fast.

Merry Christmas to all.

Re: Problem typing while on internet

Cabled keyboard? Try another cable.
Wireless keyboard? Change battery.
Possibly try another USB port.

I had this problem with my Logitech keyboard and mouse. I changed the batteries in both and the problem was fixed.

Re: Epic fail MRW and SEUR

Just received an email from SEUR saying a parcel will arrive tomorrow. It came last week.
Top marks to UPS. Text message and if I'm not in, they leave a note saying where in the village they have left it.

Re: bowen technique

There is no evidence to support the use of Bowen technique for any specific medical conditions.


In short - quackery.

Re: Carrefour

Tried to buy white goods online with Carrefour. Same problem as flyeogh. I contacted support and they tried to help. I was told they'd call back in 10 minutes. That was a month ago. I emailed head office - no response. In short, a really crappy company.

Re: rebate from Endesa

No idea but I've just been on the Endesa "chat" page with a few questions and the operator typed in perfect English. Worth trying assuming you've registered your account. They close at 9:00pm.
