Lost Post

Just a note so say that I posted two letters (different recipients, different areas of the UK) on 26th April this year in a post box at The Plaza Mayor near the railway platform. Why? Because I live in the campo 50km north of Malaga and thought the post would be delivered quicker down near the coast...

Re: Speed camera map

Cheers Sid - How do you read the pdf listing? Understand the first three columns but what does PK stand for? Is the longitude/latitude location of the camera position and for the sentido column - creciente, decreciente and ambos. What are these?

Re: Wood burning stove specialist

The other possibility (though much further away) is the excellent Bronpi company who have a comprehensive showroom and workshop on the road between Lucena and Cordoba - not really in the Frigliana or Nerja community - sorry......

Re: Thoughts on Iznajar?

I lived in this area for 15 years, the potential for off-season bookings is extremely slim, in fact expats with rentals are finding bookings this year by Brits down this summer (possibly do to Brexit issue). Off season it is quite cold and normally wet (we did have -8°C one year), we look after two ...

Re: TV Mucho users

Nothing else running here to use any line capacity.

No, tried reselecting the channel after it freezes, (when I say freezes the tv image has frozen but the buffering icon spins round, even after signing off and re-connecting, though it will connect eventually after 10mins or so.
