Exactly :). But, as I said, burgers do contain a lot of saturated fat, even ones made with leaner meat.
The Mediterranean diet, which is meant to be the most healthy diet, does not normally contain burgers :shock:

I don't think most doctors or nutritionists would agree with that statement :wtf:
If you mean that some are not as bad as others, that's fair enough, but even the lean mince ones have 10 to 15% of saturated fat in them, so hardly healthy.

Septic Tank Replacement

Our Septic Tank needs to be replaced. Can anyone recommend a good firm in the Axarquia area ?
We need a new one in order to get a DAFO, so needs to come with all the proper paperwork.

They have said you can stay, but have not said that all the benefits you have now, such as free healthcare will still be available.

Re: Official documentation of reaching pension age

Think a bit of a tangent here. The op is only talking about the proof required for her bank to confirm she has got a UK pension. Nothing whatever to do with Spanish pension. She has got her UK pension, the bank does not trust (understand) the paperwork she has got showing this. S1 is not proof you h...

Re: Official documentation of reaching pension age

Surely the bank should be able to tell you exactly what they want. Maybe you need to talk to someone more senior in the bank. Explain the situation and show them the actual documentation you have got and the fact that you have your UK state pension paid into the bank.

Re: Official documentation of reaching pension age

Have you actually claimed your UK pension yet, if so, are they paying it ?
What exactly have the bank asked for ?
I would ring the DWP rather than write. At least you could explain the situation in more detail and hopefully get instant feedback.

Re: Official documentation of reaching pension age

Best thing is to contact the DWP, they will send you the required documentation.

Re: Alternative Messaging Apps

And you think that will be any better ? I think with all the publicity there has been about Facebook selling data, etc, and how monitored and checked they now are, I think you would be far safer using Whatsapp then using some 3rd party app, that will not have the same level of regulation. I am not o...

Re: Alternative Messaging Apps

I think it is a bit perverse to use a messaging app that nobody else uses. Whatsapp is the messaging app that most people use, so if you want to stay in touch that's the one you need to use. I am not a big fan of facebook, but lets face it, most of the big messaging apps are owned by the big interne...

Re: Solar powered borehole water pump

Thanks very much for your useful information. The fruit trees and other plants that require watering are about 20 to 25 metres above the likely position of the borehole. The 'river' near where the borehole is dry most of the year. There are quite a few people in the area by the riverbed with orange,...

Solar powered borehole water pump

I was thinking of having a borehole dug and using a solar powered immersible water pump. I was wondering if anyone had done this and what their experience of it was? I was going to use the water to irrigate my fruit trees. My land is on a hillside and the borehole would be at the bottom of the hill ...

Re: fridge

I doubt very much if there is a specific requirement that the fridge light holder should have the thread on the neutral side. Anyway, it is actually possible to get a shock from the neutral side of a circuit, depending on whether there is a load on the circuit and where the neutral is connected to g...
