Re: Recommendation for insuring a motorbike?

I'm with Linea Directa. If you have full bike licence you can ride a 125 cc anywhere! OK thanks. I read a few bad comments about Linea Directa but could just be the odd bad experience. Just to give you a good experience with Linea Directa. I parked up my 250 cc Scooter at Malaga airport, opposite t...

Re: car hire excess insurance

I have excess insurance but I hired a car from Firefly recently and they refused to recognise it. They're was no compromise, I left 1,500 Euro deposit, I took out their insurance or no car. I am sure if I had an accident I would get my deposit back from the excess insurance but it would involve hass...

Re: Construction info for jobs in Gibraltar? Help!

Most projects in Gibraltar have a majority Spanish labour force hence the need to speak Spanish. Site agent and above are generally English speaking but not the coal face I'm afraid!

Re: Fitting a round window

Depending on how big it is you should not need a lintel. I put in one for a friend. 600 mm diameter through a stone and clay wall. The hole ended up massively bigger and just infilled the gaps with stone and mortar. Very easy job!

Re: Water tanks, yes or no?

I store 12,000 ltrs but I'm on mains water. Just because you never know what is coming up. This rain has been wonderful and may secure our water for another year. For those on this Forum who think Spain does not have a water shortage, they are wrong. Store as much as you can.

Re: Primera air?

I'm not sure where Brum is but I see they are flying 3 times a week to Manchester. They are a Norwegian company who have been flying within Europe for quite a few years. Why would you even ask if they are good!. Never mind the quality, feel the width. It's only 3 hours of your life!

That's a difficult question. Do you mean you doing something illegal or the company you subscribe to doing something illegal.

I have used FilmOn for nearly 3 years. Rarely had a problem and I sleep at night!

I only had one nest this year. Dealt with it in the usual way. It's the hairs that cause irritaion and they are ejected by the caterpiiars if disturbed.

Re: The rain in Spain

10 years ago Vinuela was at 18% full. By law a reservoir ceases to supply water at 15%. So it was low!. 4 years later, after the great November storm, it was full and causing the authorities great concern. As a retired Panel engineer I appreciated their concern and visited it many times, as did many...
