Re: Parking Fine in Torre del Mar

was it a "town hall" ticket? If so you can cancel it (within 24 hours) if you put 6€ in the ticket machine.

If it was a police one.. you´ll need to go to the town hall bills office - they will give you the pay slip and then you can pay that in the bank, online or in the post office.

Re: Local bank closing ... how do I?!

sorry for my lack of response to spanish_lad and others ... we had a sudden and unusual heat spike last week ... 39 each day and no breeze ... horrendous ... not used to that and it 'knocked me for six' ... now back to our more normal 33ish ... so ... it transpires that I had misunderstood the Span...

Re: What are these cacti?

interesting, they could be dragon fruit, but google seems to think they need to be in the sun? I´ve got a couple of big (one is nearly 1.5m tall) cacti, and they seem to be like a much thicker single stem, much like the small ones in the picture jerry? I´ve seen the ones that I have in the garden ce...

Re: Double pole circuit breakers v single pole

these are single pole breakers - see they are 1 space wide, and theres a "loop" at the top joining each one, and only one colour coming out the bottom (brown in this case) https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/electical-distribution-fuseboard-electrical-supplies-panel-549078463 The pict...

Re: Double pole circuit breakers v single pole

As Beachcomber says - change the old doubles for new doubles that take up half the space. or.. when you say "double pole" do you mean that they are "two spaces wide with 2 cables going in the top and two cables coming out the bottom" because they could be old "single pole&qu...

Re: Installation of a new window opening in external wall

2ft thick? thats going to be made of rocks... once you start hammering.. rocks fall out.

They will probably replace the wall. Its more than likely a much bigger job than you imagine it to be.

Re: Financial Advisors...Again.

I have my own pension plan that I started in 2014, its with my bank, and to be fair, it seems like a savings account? I put €40 a month into it on a direct debit, and I´ve got €2,500 saved up already. not alot, but it´ll be a nice bonus of around €16k when I reach 60 years old. I think I will call i...

Re: Electric fence

I always find guerros to be cheaper than agromalaga.

Go to the one nearer lidl , theres one over the other side towards the feria ground (nice bar just past it on the right, churros before 12.00) but they seem to have less 'horsey' stuff and more seeds / plants / tools / hay etc
