Under the bed??

Once I have sold my house over here in Spain where should I invest some of the money? I cannot buy unit trusts, ISAs etc in the UK as I'm resident here in spain. So what should I do with it I wonder!

Thanks guys - it has worked for me also. I gave it a couple of days to reassure myself that all was OK.

Where am I?

I've noticed just recently that I appear to be in the Ukraine. Google maps defaults to .ua and opens in the Ukraine. Now booking.com appears with the ukraine and uah currency!
Didn't know I'd moved....
Any ideas why and how to move back to my house in andalucia?

Firefox...at end of URL bar, before the Search bar is a almost circular arrow, click on that to refresh page.

Or F5 or Ctrl+F5 ?

Re: Meetic

This problem is still with me. I think it is something to do with utorrent. I have utorrent pinned to the quickstart bar and it's when I open it that the meetic window opens up. Not always just sometimes... strange. Meetic doesn't seem to open on booting up Windows so that's a start at least.

Does anyone know if there is a clinic or home or help of any sort in the region around Malaga that would be able to help a person suffering from Alzheimers Disease?

Re: funeral dress code

If its his choice you are fine. Hopefully everyone respects his wish. Picking up on the 'code' rather than the 'dress': I've attended 2 funerals in the UK where, at the wishes of the deceased, the services were not the norm. The first was for a chap who was a gambler at the horse races and the serv...
