Re: Online passport renewal

Not sure if you can upload photos onto the passport office site. As I said my daughter did everything online but had the pics taken at a proper photo shop. They then checked them on the passport office website as they have an agreement with then. She then had passport in 4 days. Yes you can, I did ...

Re: Bitcoin

OK, thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread.
I am trying to help a long term business associate out with a small cashflow problem, I won't be able to help him in this case, looks too dodgy to me, thanks again for your patience, Al.

For Pitta's sake

Forgive the intended plagiarism, I'm distraught to say the least and will certainly require a good number of self administered sedatives this evening. The "Beasts of Brussels" from which we will soon be uncoupled, are attempting to mess with the dietary necessities of myself and others of ...

Re: Cheese Making Accessories In Seville

I can't give you an answer on this one as I've only been in Seville twice, but, as a professional chef, retired, cheesemaking stuff is not that hard to come by, I'm pretty sure most of the big supermarkets will stock it, or possibly even pharmacies, just look around ! Rennet is called "cuajo&qu...

Re: Bitcoin

If you own or have a position in Bitcoin can you convert them to, say Cayman dollars or US ?? What would be the trading value, in other words if I have 10. 000 bit coins how would that be converted to US dollars or Cayman dollars ?

Re: Spain-based British professional scammers, stay alert

Terrible that thousands of people have lost there money but I bet if they think about the sales pitch it was too good to be true. True costakid, many people who are not financially savvy or "tight" as I describe myself often don't understand the old adage that, as you mention "if it ...

Sorry, I forgot to mention in my previous post that the young guys I know in Grand Cayman are Mexican and work really hard to offer authentic dishes, their Fish tacos are absolutely to die for and I do not give praise easily !
