Re: E-mail difficulty

Today, with a clear head, I figured it must be the password even though I had checked it and found it correct. I deleted it and re-entere...

Re: WHO BEST TO USE TO CHANGE FROM MOVISTAR AND KEEP THE SAME NUMBER

Re: Health screening on Spanish NHS

Confirming Bob above, Senior Management had an anomaly on her mammogram, she is particularly well endowed so it is difficult, and the recall for ultrasound was within days. No fault found but it is now in her notes to have both when due.

Re: Frigiliana campo water - safe to drink?

If unsure there is a lab in the village, if coming round the circumnavigation in the Nerja direction just after passing the school on your right it is on your left, just about opposite the Polish restaurant. If memory serves they will give you a sterile bottle and test your water for about 40€. If y...

Re: easyjet

I won't argue that but they have no control as such. Their handling agent will advise that bus department when and where they want the bus, all transparent to Easy. The agent will also liaise with the Aircraft to advise passengers on their way.

Re: easyjet

I'm not sure how much control the airlines have over the buses at the airport


You suspect correctly - none. At best the buses are a handling agent function, but more usually the airport authority are the provider.

Re: Spain isnt cheap

Why import Heinz Baked Beans ? at todays rate they are 0.5 centimos more expensive in Mercadonna than Tesco. Does not make sense.

Both our cars are much cheaper than in the UK to insure, and things like breakdown and replacement car not included in the UK. (Liberty)
