Nice one Benidorm, I was there, leaping the wall with the cat. However I ended the story by being a thief and pinching your rioja !! It was a much nicer post than an other I have read this evening :roll: So you say seven nights, can you give us 5 mins of what goes on there as we always miss it.

Bongtrees, Aren't you missing the point, there should be no need to 'make suitable arrangements'. Surely you can appreciate, amongst other things, gay couples have been fighting for equal rights and death benefits / rights is one of them.

For all the dosh I pay, I am now also getting tons of the trash mail. I would love to know why, me b...

I recently did a 4 day stay at Rincon in a hotel on the beach front with a 9 yr old. I found it very spanish with little english heard but children mix even if they don't fully understand each other so your little ones will enjoy the beach life and the evenings on the beachfront. They have a few big...

We did the blow up beds, ached for months !! There are a couple of furniture shops in Casariche and others close by such as Estepa and Puente Genil. I couldn't do the trip to Seville for a bed when I can travel 10 - 15 mins to get one possibly on the day you pay for it. I haven't compared Ikea price...

Peteroldracer - I found your last comment in bad taste. Having another child is not like replacing a goldfish. Do you really think for one moment it makes you think 'oh, I will just have another one' then you feel better and get over the loss. I think I get the gist of 'getting on with life' but you...

I agree with the comments of too cluttered and busy - it feels like my head after a days work. I can see what you are trying to achieve but as someone else said, it is not crisp in it's presentation. An initial thought is , for example your list of pages, ie, Accomodation - do people need to be told...

We used to watch the TV programme, 'It's me or the dog' and your suggestion for doggie anti social behaviour is one that was used many times with great results. With dogs on leads, start heading towards your volunteer and at the first sign of aggression, give your dog it's 'no' instruction and turn ...

Pete You stated that radiation in schools is down and 600 times lower than minimum safety limit. My point of concern was the fact that, the reporter and the gygo monitor man (whatever he is called) ran around schools and town centres with the meter beeping away and showing above the recommended safe...
