Re: 13 year itch? Maybe now time to move on?

We have been here 16 years and we still love it. Done the campo bit, move to the town. Busses on doorstep, so gave up car. Pharmacist on the corner of my road(need it these days). Health centre just round the corner. Bars and restaurants on offer. Lovely Spanish neighbours(I am fortunate that I spea...

Re: FilmOn

Not sure if this is right but same sort of subject. Have just updated Filmom App and it just won't connect to my android box on my tv. It is set to SD but just gives me a message that connection timed out. I have contacted them but not much joy from them.. Any ideas anyone who has the app.

Re: Artichokes -recipes

Even better, use the olive oil they are in to fry off in if you are using the first recipe if the second(cold) could use or substitute for extra virgin, the oil they are in will have lots of flavour. Just one tip if you need to store them don't put them once mixed in the fridge because the oil tends...

Re: Artichokes -recipes

If they are frozen I wouldn't think that they are raw, defrost and drain well then just use as per the instructions. They are so versatile and jars of them are wonderful well drained mixed with some chopped shallots in a dressing of three parts olive oil to one teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and some...

Re: 65 years young

Just got back from England compare Southern Trains with Ave, now you are having a larf. Travelled from Gatwick to Eastbourne(tickets return €70) stood all the way 45 mins. Travel to Seville same price, spotless train and loos, our own guaranteed seat peaceful and smooth journey. Decide for yourself.

Re: FilmOn

I don't know about anyone else but when I do try to access Filmon it takes forever to connect . When I asked someone about it they said that Filmon were making it harder to access so that you will pay the £100 per annum to upgrade to HD.

Re: SKY Q

I agree about the BBC, I have loads of different apps with loads of choices of channels but tend to stick mostly to BBC particularly at the moment when ITV are not giving a very good choice of programme. I seem at the moment to be using the UKTV now app which doesn't need VPN and has all the channel...

Re: NOWTV box problem

Have spoken to quite a few friends this morning and I mentioned that we had had reception problems yesterday they all said they had as well. Maybe it was a general thing right across the board.
