Re: Avocados

I did not usually collect mine until January/February. The company that I sold to did not accept them before this. I had to check and see if they were accepting them as they wanted them fresh off the trees. For personal use, they can stay on the trees for a very long time.

Re: Money Transfer

I also use XE formally Hifix and am happy with their service. I have not used any other provider. Their website is very easy to follow however you do need to register and they will ask for some details. They will then give you details as to how the process works.

Re: Selling our rural house.

Yes it does, and no I can not explain. I think the threads above outline the problem, and allude to the fact their is no current solution at our level. 'They' are never identifiable.
Beachcomber has explained it in very clear terms.
I am a very happy Spanish resident who is also a victim!

Re: Uk state pension been underpaid to women

it's the worst state pension in European Union, if they had not plundered it to pay for bailouts etc it could have been so much better and it was not only Conservatives that did this but Labour as well.

Re: anyone know anything about fosas negras ?
