Re: Spain v England 15th October

I'm a season ticket holder at Sevilla fc, so I'm not one for visiting the "other" stadium, this will be my 1st visit. There wil no doubt be street parking close to the ground if you get there early enough, or you can do what i'm doing which is parking in my usual place under the Hotel Novo...

Re: Electricity Cables

If it's an older property do not assume that blue = neutral, brown = live etc. In my experience it all depends on what bits of wire the person doing the original job had to hand and there is no guarantee that the colour of wire used at one end of the circuit matches the colour at the other.

Re: Intelsat 907 receiver

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...

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.
