Re: Young man from Coín murdered in Bournmouth

Crocodile tears from people who didn't know the man. How can they be "devastated" , that's for friends and family. They are more worried about their position in the community. They'll be sending teddy bears next :roll: The only time devastated was mentioned was in that newspaper article F...

Re: Price of logs

The only time we ever used olive was in a rental property before we bought here. The smell was awful, the smoke and the tar dripping was also awful. Properly seasoned olive wood burns cleanly and gives of a great deal of heat. All varieties of unseasoned wood gives of lots of smoke and leaves a lot...

Re: How high can we go?

That figure is for all of the working age population in Andalucia looking for a job! You didn't mention that they were offshore, in which case there is no need to panic whatsoever No...not panicking about Spain particularly...just that the euro itself might carry on getting 'weaker' (is that the rig...

Re: Price of logs

We get through 3 tones of olive wood most winters :wtf:
It costs €360 and is probably about 6 cubic metres delivered.
Been the same price for years, tried another source one year, slightly cheaper but his truck was too big for our entrance so too much wheel barowing for us and not worth the saving.

Re: Young man from Coín murdered in Bournmouth

I never thought it was my fault, nor does anyone else.
He was still murdered in England though!
The 'Comunidad Britanica' are collecting for flowers to be sent to the funeral.

Re: The Guadalhorce Hospital

Sadly I think it has no chance of opening in this decade.
They can't even find the money to connect the 1km of almost finished road that would connect Coín to the Malaga motorway :thumbdown:

Tj
It depends on your appetite for gambling.
It is quite posible that in a few months your euros might buy you more pounds but it is equally possible that they will be converted into new pesetas and you would be unable to repatriate them due to currency restrictions.

Re: where did the fruit go?

If the trees were stressed then they may have dropped their blossom or aborted immature fruit. They may not be self-pollinating varieties Citrus trees really do not like their feet wet. It would perhaps be better for them to get a good soaking once a week to encourage the roots to go deep down into ...

Problem is with Coín they have had so much British riff-raffe there that they already hated the Brits before this You have never actually been to Coín have you? :crazy: We chose to live in Coín over 10 years ago and unless we are very deluded the locals do not hate the British then or now.

Re: Young man from Coín murdered in Bournmouth

I felt ashamed walking round Coín this morning. I met a couple of friends who told me they felt that way also, the locals perhaps sensed that and seemed to go out of their way to be even friendlier than usual. By all accounts he was a very nice young man. The Mayor is going to arrange a day of mourn...

Re: Pruning citrus trees

The advantage of pruning after flowering is that you can choose which branches to crop from and remove weak unproductive branches or to thin out overcrowded ones. Every couple of years we get a few days frost in February which kills off the ends of some branches, by April these become more obvious. ...
