Not strictly correct - as a non-resident he will be liable for the 'imputedincome' tax on any property he owns

Re: Pallets?

My son made these last year (the bench & planters) from old pallets - he'd never done any carpentry before, so I think he did a pretty good job :thumbup:

Re: Looking to move to Andalucia

Talking of rain, if you're looking at a property on a slope, try & work out where the water will run in heavy rain - it never occurred to us, that the original property had no doors on the uphill side, as we planned our reform, & then found out the hard way that water runs downhill & str...

Yes, I got an email yesterday - I haven't done anything about it yet. Will it cope with XP ? (I'm still using it as it is so much easier to use when I'm doing graphics... ;-) )

Re: On this Day

I did loads of research several years ago, and reached a point where I would either have to spend quite a bit, or go to various far-flung locations, in order to find out more, so it all sort of ground to a halt ! Katy, you're right about the contact - early on in my research into hubby's line, I fou...

Lidl are advertising mince pies in UK at the moment - don't know if they might stock them in the more 'Brit' areas ?

Re: Small wooden cabin on terrace allowed?

If it's going to be temporary, if some functionario comes along, you can always take it down...we asked the Town Hall about a shed - the response was 'you don't have enough land to qualify for a shed, but if you want to build one....' with a shrug of the shoulders :-). We went ahead & built it -...

Re: Mains Water

I once got a free tanker from the local village Ayuntamiento, but only because my Spanish friend bullied him into it ;-) ! The whole procedure was hilarious (from our perspective), and we offered the 'boss man' (who had got soaked during the process) a beer. He wouldn't take it but said to give it t...

Re: Have You Tried This ????

For most of my life I've taken fish oil( cod liver oil in my case), starting as a very small child when my parents had to use bribery to get me to take the oil in liquid form on a teaspoon. :shock: I remember having this too, but on my case it came mixed with malt - I remember it as tasting delicio...

Re: Compact scented plant needed

A rosemary bush would fill the gap nicely - once it is established you will need to trim it back each year or it will get quite large ! Lavender is another option, the same pruning advice as the rosemary :-) - depending on the size of the bed, you may need a couple of plants. You can use the rosemar...

Logged on to A.com as usual, but I'm getting all the adverts - I have Adblockplus installed, & the little icon is there at the top of the page. Downloaded a fresh copy, re-started Firefox, but the ads are still there - anyone any idea why ??

Re: Who sells tiles??

There's a shop on the way into Antequera from the motorway (A45) - go past the poligono, and it's on the right just past the hospital roundabout. It's in a building called Edificio Torres, & the shop is called Pavimientos Torres. We got some nice tiles from there :-)
