Re: Amazon

Hi Enrique.

Even more weirdly it has now started working again... Must have been some kind of Internet *beep*.

Amazon

Anybody experiencing weirdness with Amazon. I don't seem to be able to get to any amazon websites other than .es. Can get to UK if I connect my vpn but otherwise nada. Likewise with .de, .com, .fr.

Try Facebook. Bought our Smart which is rhd from a Facebook ad. Also sold our Merc ML which was rhd via a Facebook ad. Both were on Spanish plates.

Re: campo living - water pumps - how often should it run ?

We've had similar issues in the past even after turning off what we can to try and figure out where the leakage is. Eventually I put a sheet of kitchen roll under each tap, shower and my water heater. Easy to see then as the paper deforms once a drip or two falls on it. Last time it turned out to be...

Come back Melvin and turn it back into the Old Goa. As Pahuna we found the food pretty OK, but preferred Melvin's cooking.

Easier to vac it straight to waste. Probably uses similar quantities of water and you won't be back washing your filter every few minutes.

Re: Nag, Nag, Nag, Nag..!!

Gordon, go to your doctor and ask for a blood and urine test. It is very comprehensive. If as you suspect, you are healthy then everything will be in limits and the doctor will be delighted to see a healthy customer for a change. On the other hand you may have some condition starting which can be h...

Re: Architectural salvage

They are around. There's one near Rincon de la Victoria. Haven't actually been to it but you can see it from the motorway as you head to the airport. They have a huge sign. We did go to another one a few years ago when we were wanting traditional floor tiles for our dining room extension. Sadly coul...

This is a subject that comes up from time to time on the forum and indeed in our household. Now to heating. 5x10 m and 80 or more cu m of water. A few years back we tried a DIY solution of 50 m of black pipe teed into the circulation. It sort of worked but was a nuisance. Things have moved on hopef...

Re: Soundbars

When/if you decide on a soundbar from amazon paste the url into hagglezon.com. It will check the item price across all amazon's european sites. Quite large differences somtimes between es, de, fr etc.

Re: Help with SPTH please

The question is a bit ambiguous, I put country of origin as being "UK". I suspect they're happy with UK or Spain at present. I'm flying from LGW - has anyone recent experience of what time the EasyJet baggage check-in desk opens to have documentation checked? Officially they say 3 hours b...

Re: App for spth form

Hmmnn, they were on the phone as i put them there, but she'd have no idea how to access them :-) . Much like a load of people at the departure gate who had to rely on the staff to search through their phones to find them. My missus on the other hand waltzed through with paper copies.

Hi all, just checking the entry requirements for Spain on the Finnair website and, tucked away there is a note, for those of you not aware, the printed version of the form alone is NOT acceptable for entry, you MUST have the QR code in your phone, I wasn't aware of this but I am now, cheers Al !
