Re: Oven Cleaning

The Management exchanged mail with him yesterday and it was he and he hasn't which is a pity, the process produced "as new" results, and, of course, not all have a "clean" button.

Oven Cleaning

There used to be a chap that cleaned ovens, and a grand job he did too, Steve @ Axarquia Oven Cleaning.
He has regrettably retired so does the collective know of anyone else cleaning ovens in the area or willing to travel to the Torrox area ?

Re: Septic Tank Pumping Out

Most don't have one.
Few even know where their water comes from and know the capacity of their deposit or even if they have one.
Hard to believe I know.

Re: Septic Tank Pumping Out

As I wander the planet looking for another house to downsize into (and failing) it becomes apparent that most vendors have no idea what they have. I think there are three basic types of sewage disposal used in Spain and only one of these should be referred to as a "Septic Tank" whereas it ...

Re: Ryanair Flights & Entering Passport Information

10 years ago there was nowhere near the volume of traffic that there is now. The boundary of French Airspace is nominally 8' W but in places it is 10' W and the boundary where Portugal interferes is 15' W. As there is no radar cover in Oceanic Airspace the spacing between aircraft both in Altitude a...

Re: Car Tax unexpected debit

They have the date they were sent, which in my case are different days 26th and 28th and these dates correspond to the dates the sums were stolen from my account. (One from Frigiliana and one from Torrox two days later)
Thinks must change from Frigiliana as I no longer live there.

Re: "Road Tax"

Thanks Gerry, something to look forward to. I have to visit my Buzon later as a package has arrived, so I'll see. Torrox is usually pretty much in line with the other Ayuntamientos
