Re: Online shopping in the Covid world

Agree pamela. Im not a fan of online shopping. I want to go in a shop and feel,look at something. Would never buy electrical items as i always get the friday afternoon one and returns are to much hassle ontop of the worry of it been thrown around before it even gets to me. I bought a northface coat ...

Re: Online shopping in the Covid world

Only started shopping online when we came here. Amazon maybe a couple of times a year and once or twice clothes from the uk that i had bought previous. No different during lockdown. not the same for others in the street. The courier vans seemed to be here everyday. At least they did well out of ever...

Re: Masks to be mandatory from next week in Andalucia

Forgot to ask, is it the same in Spain/Andalucia, no trying on clothes or shoes in stores? In big shops like dunnes,C&A you cant. Returns policy has been changed in accordance. But alot of smaller shops allow you to. They just disinfect the clothes if you dont buy them. I guess the bigger shops won...

Re: Coronavirus

It will certainly kill off the tourisim for the rest of the year. I was looking to go off upto valencia in the near future but if it comes in there i wont bother. You dont mind wearing them in confined spaces in and out but if im walking into my village and theres not a soul around then its just pla...

Re: Coronavirus

Have walked past a shop in my town which makes and sells the traditional flamenco dresses, wedding outfits and First Communion get-ups for children. They have a whole range of masks in co-ordinating fabrics in the window, including children's sizes in white or cream for those Comuniones! Quick off ...

Re: Masks to be mandatory from next week in Andalucia

But huge amounts of health workers have caught the virus. So how effective is a mask unless its a gas mask type. The public even worse when all they are wearing is the basic ones or designer bits of cotton bought in a clothes/chinese shop. As they say it helps when in a confined area as sneezing,cou...

Re: Masks to be mandatory from next week in Andalucia

The junta is asking the medical board for its opinion and then there will be a probable vote on it. I doubt tourist bosses etc are happy. If ppl havnt been put off already they will be now. Will the police inforce it as since the end of the S.O.A ive hardly seen one. Have they all gone on hols or be...

Ignore the click bait headline. Moreno is going to ask for masks to be mandatory. Crazy. Thats just killed off whats left of this years summer tourism industry.

Re: Retirement age Spain

The problem being that many younger and older ppl cant afford to save anything from their wage. Many work long hours and two jobs yet still have vertually nothing left at the end of month after all the bills have been paid. They cant think about putting money into private pensions etc when they are ...

Re: Gibraltar

Went over yesterday. Not a single car infront of me at 10am. Straight through! That will probably never happen again. No mask wearing or social distancing in effect. Some shop staff wearing masks but thats of no use if no one else is. Morrisons the same. No different to normal except you had to ring...

The "working class" youngsters of today dont have the same mentality, with all the b*llsh*t degrees on offer that never amount to anything. ------------ Very true.

to return to the discussion re old people in care homes: seems to me that those who wish to have an end to their lives should be able to do so (with legal/family assistance if necessary) but to label/stereotype such persons as 'Most are in care homes for a reason such as dementia.
