Re: Cajamar Bank

I just sent my Modelo100 - the Spanish tax return. I think last year I sent my passport, and this may have been on record? There is always your NIE.

Re: Deposit or well?

We had a similar system, except the town water filled the deposito (above ground but we never managed to seal it completely to prevent slugs getting in!) with all the water supplied through the demand valve. This worked well unless there was a power cut - common at one time in the campo. We never dr...

Re: Donating your body to medical science

Organ donation is only possible if the death occurs in hospital as everything starts to deteriorate once the heart stops, unless there is some form of life support. Only around 2% of deaths of willing organ donors are actually suitable, so it seems a lot of fuss for little possibility. The law in Sp...

Re: Donating your body to medical science

If you have loved ones you might want to consider the affect on them, in the time of maximum grief and shock having to see you disappear - within a very very short time of death. Having seen the way medical students show no respect for the cadavers they worked on would also put me off.

Re: Coronavirus

It seems to me that a substantial minority - if not the majority - of people have taken little notice of what the rules are, so fine tuning is just polititcal posturing. Some here are flapping and twitching about allowing anyone in from anywhere, when the risks will be very low - would anyone having...

Re: ITV rules re tyres

Re: ITV rules re tyres

Be aware, be very aware. Many businesses have suffered because of the lockdown but be aware that some may try to make up the defecit by sharp practice and deception. I had my car serviced at Labasa Toyota in Cartagena, prior to its first ITV @ 4 years old. The service reception rang me an hour into ...
