Re: Intelsat 907 receiver

If you look on the link provided by Paulinmalaga it would appear that the "magic" box they are flogging for €250 is simply the VU+ Zero linux based satellite receiver. NOT as they state "Our newest product designed by us and exclusive" A quick search finds that they are available...

Torremolinos & the paseo maritimo mystery

We visit Torremolinos around once a month for lunch and a walk along the seafront. We have noticed on our last few visits that finding a free parking spot on the paseo maritimo is becoming almost impossible. I could understand it if we visited on a weekend during high season, but today for example w...

My experience with using yeso is not to mix up more than you can use in around 10 minutes it very quickly becomes solid.

Re: Failing a driving licence medical

The doc who did my last DL medical also found my blood pressure to be on the high side. There was no problem in passing me fit to drive, he simply gave me a prescription for tablets to treat it.

Re: Ferry to Spain

Be aware that if you want a pet-friendly cabin they are usually fully booked months in advance. The other alternative is that the dog stays in a kennel with opportunities for owners to visit for feeding,walks etc.

Re: Andalucia or Andalusia?

I was sitting at a bar in Torremolinos a few years ago and overheard an Irishman saying that his wife had gone to visit Bella madonna. :lolno:

Still makes me chuckle thinking of it now.

Re: log burner

The best way to keep the glass clean is to burn the fire hot enough so that there are no deposits left on the door. A simple wipe with a damp cloth is then all that is required.

It's looking almost certain that there will be a new general election on 26th of June, No party can find enough friends to form a coalition.

Opinion are polls suggesting that the outcome of a summer election will be broadly the same as in December, threatening more inertia. :(
