Re: Junta to Act on Demolition of Illegal Homes Policy

Probably one of the main criteria will be if the properties are owned by a foreigner! I read the article and foreigners were not mentioned. I really think it is a myth that they target us. Firstly because, percentage wise, if they were only targetting foreigners they would only be looking at a very...

Re: Worm like creatures

Like centipedes and woodlice they seem to get in under the doors and windows; even the double glazed ones. We spray all our door sills and window sills with long term insect killer. Look out for any can which has "Todo una ano sin insectos" written on it. The best we have come across so fa...

Hope for horses?

I have noticed recently that quite a few of the horses in this area have been provided with shelters whereas before they were mostly left tethered in the full heat of the sun. Even the guy who lives below us who gives his animals less respect than they could expect from a starving nomad has built a ...

Re: Ondacero International

I agree that some of the weekday morning programmes are abysmal but the music they play is excellent for background sound and the special music programmes that Terry Cleare does are excellent. I shall certainly miss them. Perhaps A.com fancies going into the music business; just choose the presenter...

Re: Spain now more expensive to live than the UK?

I too feel that living in Spain is much cheaper than living in the UK. The things you cannot do without are certainly cheaper on average. Our total cost per month for electric, water, IBI and car tax ( 1 4x4 1 JCB and 1 scooter) is €120 and I am sure it would be a great deal more than that in GBPs i...

Re: wood burning stove

We have got an ancient Jotul wood burning stove. So old, in fact, that it is a collectors item. It is still superb, however, so I can't help thinking that if the new models are as good they have got to be worth considering. We actually bought ours from a 2nd hand shop in Bournemouth and were told it...

Re: Reminder Warning for Pets

Our little dog was sooo lucky last year. We got up in the morning and found a toad sitting in her water bowl. Fortunately she was too scared to approach it but I dread to think what might have happened.

Re: with all that rain....

I just hope they really are going to repair any reservoir that needs it. I understand they are nearly all in a bad state and surely the best thing to do is get on and repair them whilst they are so low. I just trust that the 'necesary paper work' doesn't last for the customary 3 years :roll: We have...

Re: Mollete

Don't know what is in a mollete but I do know that it is one of the white bread products I can eat without getting serious indigestion so there must be something that is not in it :? Perhaps it is the yeast?

According to the statistics the monthly average mortgage is greater than the average wage in Malaga province. If that is not up to their neck in debt I don't know what is!

Re: Cornflour

The cornflour sold under the Maizena name also comes in an 'instant' variety which can be added direct to the hot soup or sauce. Excellent if you want to do a 'quick fix' when things turn out a bit runnier than you expected. :roll: Best way to spot it is that it is always in the smaller size packet!

Re: Come fly with me!!

What a night it was, and still continuing today. We almost lost the tiles off the roof of the breakfast room but fortunately I heard them start to rattle so we were able to go out and replace them. They are now anchored down with some heavy blocks as well so they should stay put. It was a bit unnerv...
