Thank you Alan for your kind and encouraging words, my husband and I are both police checked, him as a carer and me as a registered childminder and we would probably get a fresh CRB each before coming to Spain. I work at the CRB for my sins (Criminal Records Bureau) and you can only get a so-called...

The person in the photo has a body that looks like a 70+ year old. :shock:

Michell Thomas courses are a good start apart from his accent. The Pimsleur full course is very good (although with S American Spanish - a few differences to note) but is very expensive unless you can get hold of a "copy". The full course is 90 half hour lessons on CD, retails for over £50...

Hi Silver, Yes it is a battery on the mainboard of the computer. Usually a flat round battery the size of a coin. Your computer will probably work ok still but every time you turn it on you will lose date and time information. Depends on how brave you are - do you want to try to fix it yourself or t...

I have flown into Alicante and dropped the car off at Malaga with no problems. I think most hire companies would allow this.

With respect Yomper, you are acting like a blind man who has stumbled into the wrong shop. This is Andalucia.com - there must be another forum that is more appropriate to the subject matter where you could debate global warming theories and conspiracies etc. You haven't convinced me either way - I d...

Sexy Beast was a year 2000 film with Ben Kingsley and Ray Winstone. It is very funny - and UK made.

Kenny, Don't worry about the core-2 clock speed. Even a single core at 1.8 would beat your old P4 2.4. The core-2 processor is not based on P4 architecture but on the very successful Pentium M processor, which in turn was a development of the old P3. The P4 was never that good, easily beaten by lowe...

I'm not sure how these costs are calculated. For instance if you drive a car as part of your lifestyle you have to factor in fuel, insurance, testing, servicing costs and depreciation because at some stage you will have to replace the car. Is this included in the 500 Euros quoted? The list goes on f...

I see David Cameron is talking about taxes for frequent flyers and generally trying to put tax on aviation fuel. That will go down like a lead balloon.

No I have never heard of anybody fitting air-con to a car that didn't have it from new. I remember driving my boss's Ford Grenada 2 litre diesel years ago and when you turned on the A/C you could feel the loss of power. I think modern car A/C units are much more efficient and I reckon the extra fuel...

14 tenses yes but you don't need to learn 14 separate tenses. Once you can conjugate "haber" in seven tenses and know how to form the past participle (eg pagado from pagar) it is easy to make up the seven compound tenses. I probably find "por" versus "para" harder than ...
