New Flights to Granada to/from Gatwick

According to the local paper (to me) Easyjet will be starting flights to/from Granada three times a week from February 2017 http://www.ideal.es/granada/201611/04/g ... 04651.html Weirdly it doesn't look as though the Easyjet website has been updated yet.

Re: online rail ticket procedure

When I have bought on-line tickets, which were downloaded as a pdf document, previously they did not need to be validated but these were for long distance journeys. I think the procedure is different for local or "cercanias" trains. There is detailed information here http://www.seat61.com/...

Re: Spanish mobile

Very interesting to know Three's time limit Gerry but to avoid your wife's hassle of constantly changing her Three sim why doesn't she get her friends/family/contacts all on "What's App" or similar?

All the best,

James

Re: Spanish mobile

I can't add more than my own experiences to Gerry's comprehensive reply. If you are on the "Three" UK network then you will be able to use your 'phone in Spain virtually as at home without any additional charges, eg if you have an allowance of 300 minutes then you will be able to make and ...

Re: Sciatica treatment

An update from my post on 19/8/2016. Underwent a Microdisectomy to resolve pain caused by spondylolisthesis and a compressed nerve at L5 S1. Surgery took place on 9th Sept and I was home the following day. Yesterday I had the staple stitches removed. It's early days but so far, so good. I am not on ...

Re: Chrome updated

Hi, I think the address bar size cannot be adjusted but the font size can, under settings/advanced settings/web content/font size. As a work around I normally work with 2 different browsers, ie have one as a back up if one is "playing up". Both Opera and Firefox are decent browsers and, in...

Re: ZTE Blade L5 Plus

Hi this is a fairly low end basic smartphone, it's not that it's particularly awful but it could be a little frustrating to use because of the low powered processor. I tend to buy refurbished 2 year old devices, eg you can pick up the Samsung S5 for around £130 on ebay, fully refurbished. Best of lu...

Re: Payment Dispute with shop

Technically he may be able to get away with it but my question is, when he went to pay did he believe there had been a mistake, that he had been undercharged (after all, surely an estimate must have been provided upfront?) and said nothing? If that is the case then, morally speaking, I think he shou...

Re: Using state health with no EHIC

Whilst personally aghast at the Brexit decision it is extremely unlikely the EHIC arrangements will change. It is a reciprocal arrangement of course and it will be everyones' interests that the benefits remain intact. For a pointer on how the situation may develop watch Switzerland, not a full membe...

Re: PRINTERS

How heavy a workload will the printer be expected to perform? If it's only occasional copying, printing and scanning I would recommend the HP Desktop 2540 https://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-Deskjet-2540-All-In-One-Printer/dp/B00E7Q36RW This relatively inexpensive printer is very simple to set up, is also a...

Re: Sciatica treatment

I can only support DA's comments, although I will post an update after my operation in 3 weeks. I have spondylolisthesis L5 S1 causing pain in my back, right hand side, due to nerve compression. I have had to give up, hopefully temporarily, one of my passions - running, due to the resulting pain. So...

Re: Satellite/TV options in Riofrio, Loja area

Hello again, could Gerry or any other contributor kindly be able to suggest any agents/installers for an intelsat 907 satellite and receiver in the Riofrio, Loja area? Ideally, my Mother would need someone English speaking which would be a struggle locally (she's got the basics covered but I think s...

Satellite/TV options in Riofrio, Loja area

Firstly, my apologies as I can almost hear a virtual groan as I'm sure this subject has been covered many, many times. My Mother has a property in the RIofrio area near Loja. The house is river side, ie bottom of the valley mountains encircling. No radio reception (though 3g is fine). Is there any f...
