Re: Thinking of buying in Andalucia...

Have you considered Almunecar or La Herradura? I've no regrets about buying a holiday home in the nearby campo, even after 16 years.

How does belonging to a forum widen perspective? I'm curious as to whom or what is an average UK voter? :think:

Re: most boring election in the world

Well done, Cameron, an outright majority to govern. the country has spoken. I dreaded the thought of Ed Balls being in charge of the Nation's finances, he couldn't manage a child's piggy bank. The £ is already stronger internationally.

Richard I pre-load a card then use it as any other type of debit card. Safer than wads of notes. :thumbup:

I still had choice for 15th April, Ryanair, Malaga East Midlands. I would have thought Liverpool would be equally busy.

Re: Nutribullet

Sid, it is an excellent, efficient, easy clean liquidiser. I have a large Kenwood liquidiser, a processor, a wand and a juicer. Nothing I have or had breaks down the food, fruit, veg, nuts, ice etc. as completely or as rapidly as my Nutribullet. The advantage over a juicer is that you benefit from d...

I'm glad you got sorted :) I mill flax seeds and keep them ready to add to anything. Spinach is a good sub for kale. Happy juicing :thumbup:

Re: Nutribullet

mine was £99 on line and included extra recipe book. There is only one genuine Nutribullet that I know of. I've had mine about ten months. excellent, and so easy to clean. Having tried my daughter's I soon gave away my juicer ........... no comparison. It does exactly what it says in the advert .......

Re: Alan Barnes fund

The donations were generously given to this man to help him . It was not donated to a committee of people who think they know best what to do with the money. Alan, who lived independently, has already closed the appeal and has said he will take advice. Why do other people think they know best? Like ...

Re: wintering a pool

Here in Spain, I don't cover it and just run the pump for 15 minutes a day to keep it stirred up a bit. A chlorine tablet or two in a floating dispenser last for weeks and the water is crystal clear. The only problem is the leaves, but I just collect them every so often with a pool net. Sid [/quote...

Re: wintering a pool

Mmmm, I've emptied my pool every winter for fourteen years, no probs. (so far) My neighbour uses the water for his land, he pumps it into his agricultural reserve, so it's put to good use. Cleaning and filling the pool ready for the Summer is a fairly simple task and does not need loads of chemicals...

Re: Agricultural advicer - do you know any?

Perhaps not very helpful, but I have found my Spanish neighbour to be an excellent guide who enjoys sharing his local knowledge. My bible is Lorraine Cavanagh's Mediterranean Garden plants, bought from a local viveros (garden centre) enjoy the challenge and delight. :thumbup:
