Re: Ryanair industrial action July

I am guessing like me most people here not aware of this. It may not be all O'Leary's fault after all. RYANAIR BOSS MICHAEL O’Leary wrote to the European Commission last year asking for its help in resolving a legal dispute with Irish officials over where it taxes European staff. In November 2018, t...

Re: Amazon Online Order

As someone said earlier the chat line best and you just need click on the item and scroll to chat to start same. Amazon will refund immediately i expect when you explain. The fact that you paid suggests the item was dispatched as that it was lost in transit as my understanding with group orders we p...

Re: Dama de noche question

The best advice i can give you is i think they be more cozy indoors with lots of attention.
They can be a bit sensitive bit that's the way it is.
Feed them with chocolate and red wine and they will shed their leaves naturally.

Re: Roofing Costs

Just a thought but is as someone said earlier would you consider a flat roof, if this is an option you may consider a tiled terrace for a roof. How they do this is concrete beams set about 50 cm apart, there then is a crockery thing slots between, this is the covered with conctete with reinforced st...

Re: Cosumer protection/dispute reolution

I think you should take two Solicitud de Arbitraje (whatever that is) one against Tien 21 and another against the delivery people. I think i mentioned this earlier but you have now confirmed Tien has an out because of terms etc. I always thought in this case that the key is arrangements between Tien...

Re: Having a car to use in UK

I am thinking you need get your residence set-up in then the first instance.
If you passport+license+utility bill with address.
This will tick all the boxes and you be non-resident in UK.
This is my understanding of this situation.

Donald can in ask you your advise? I want to do a bit of sea angling, i expect it be mostly spinning. I have being fishing from boats for years but this is fading away due to lack of interest from some of the regulars. Anyway Donald, what would you advise me to buy?

Re: Cosumer protection/dispute reolution

On reading this again i am thinking that the principle fault here lies between the delivery company company and Tien. You bought goods from Tien but it was the delivery company who failed to deliver the said packaging that is part of the contract you entered with Tien. I think it may be worth while ...

Re: Neighbours taking me to court - Acto de conciliación

I know this is not what you want to hear but at the end of the day both of you will need to compromise. You will need to attend the proceedings and hope for a good outcome, make sure you are seen to being reasonable. It surprises me that your lawyer did not suggest some sort of mediation or it may b...

Re: Living Permanently in a Mobile Home ?

It was regular truck you mention, i am guessing it was about 20ft long with a rack in the back for scrambler etc, it basically looked like a refrigerated rigid truck well painted camouflage grey. It was very well done and would be expensive but if it being used as a holiday home likely a very econom...

I do not know what the laws as regards to parking...

I would suggest you compare potencia with your friend who are paying the same amount. All of this info on the back of bill. This is the amount of available KW/hour at any given time, the standing charge jumps about €10/12 for each additional KW/H The said "potencia" is a significant part o...
