Re: Newspapers -Granada

El Cid You are right of course. I was given instructions to look for three small lines at the top right of the crossword and then select that and find the printing icon. Nothing there. Anyway, as you say email it to yourself and it works very well indeed. The boss is very pleased indeed. We spent Sa...

Re: Smarty DNS

Persisted with Smartydns VPN but just could not connect with any of the UK sites, even though it worked fine for Germany, Singapore, Italy etc. Smartydns accepted that there was a fault and gave me a full refund and sent me a very pleasant email. Have now joined up with PrivateVPN and it works very ...

Re: Smarty DNS

Enrique, thanks for the offer but I am away from home at the moment. We are down in Malaga with relatives for a week or so. Are there any suggestion that you can make which might help me sort this? I think you suggested to someone else that they change their Username and Password. I have tried this,...

Re: Smarty DNS

Hello Enrique, I am using their Smartydns App on an iPad2. This App seems be for both their Smartydns and their VPN package. So I am meant to sign in to the VPN section and use their 'auto' config for the VPN connection. I can get a connection with eg Germany, Italy and Singapore, but nothing for Lo...

Re: Residencia

Had a quick look at the CAB information/advice and it appears that you use the same form (EX-18) as when you applied for Residencia.
All good stuff though.

He seems more worried about getting back his right to health care in the UK.

Residencia

A friend of mine asked me yesterday how do you cancel your Residencia and go back to being a 'holiday' visitor again. He is off back to the UK to work fulltime again. Does he have to visit the place that issued his Residencia or can you do it online? He wants keep his apartment here and still visit ...

Re: Gibraltar

That Is a boat and a half. Moody produced some very fine yachts didn't they.
An old friend of mine at the club has sailed many boats over his many years and always said the best was the Moody he owned until he had to retire from sailing.

Very jealous.

Re: Builder/decorator payment profile

Agree with Wollie that trust is vitally important and it is a two way thing. If someone insists on 50% up front, I would walk away from it. 25% up front is more normal, with agreed stage payments as the job progresses. It is perfectly normal for a retainer to be agreed of say 10% until a mutually ag...

Re: Gibraltar

The situation with Gibraltar is far more important than Morrison's or Fish & Chips. It HAD military significance during WW2, but that ended more than 70yrs ago! However, most Brits prefer to look backwards rather than to the future. We are in the middle of negotiating with various parts of Europ...

Re: Gibraltar

Is Gibraltar worth a visit? Nope. Have been there a few times over the years, but it never impresseed me at all. Unattractive, untidy and anachronistic. So it has a Morrisons, so what. Seems to have a lot of ex-pats living there who want to live in a Britain that doesn't actually exist anymore and h...

I agree with you.

I read ''Driving over lemons' and thought it very overated.

I also read Gerald Brenan's South of Granada' and thought it was excellent. I would recommend that to anyone.

Re: Newspapers -Granada

Afternoon all. Came up trumps in Granada. First day there found a single copy of the Telegraph in about the sixth kiosk that we tried, but as it was late afternoon, didn't expect too much. Also tried the magazine/papers section in El Corte Inglés on C' Acera del Darro, but all they had left was one ...
