Cleaning Patio

Can anyone recommend something to clean a patio. I have tried Agua Fuerte but it doesn’t seem to touch the dirt(soot like). Is there another product I could try? Thanks

Re: Clave Pin

When you have both received your 2 jabs, go to your medical centre and they will download it for you.

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

Re: Strawberries

That’s what I love about living here. Never ate a tremendous amount of fruit in UK, but here I always have a great big bowl of mixed fruit in the fridge and it changes all the time. Also when the bigger soft fruit is in, plums, nectarines, peaches, stew a lot and store them in the freezer .

Re: 13 year itch? Maybe now time to move on?

We have been here 16 years and we still love it. Done the campo bit, move to the town. Busses on doorstep, so gave up car. Pharmacist on the corner of my road(need it these days). Health centre just round the corner. Bars and restaurants on offer. Lovely Spanish neighbours(I am fortunate that I spea...

Re: FilmOn

Not sure if this is right but same sort of subject. Have just updated Filmom App and it just won't connect to my android box on my tv. It is set to SD but just gives me a message that connection timed out. I have contacted them but not much joy from them.. Any ideas anyone who has the app.

Re: Artichokes -recipes

Even better, use the olive oil they are in to fry off in if you are using the first recipe if the second(cold) could use or substitute for extra virgin, the oil they are in will have lots of flavour. Just one tip if you need to store them don't put them once mixed in the fridge because the oil tends...

Re: Artichokes -recipes

If they are frozen I wouldn't think that they are raw, defrost and drain well then just use as per the instructions. They are so versatile and jars of them are wonderful well drained mixed with some chopped shallots in a dressing of three parts olive oil to one teaspoon of fresh lemon juice and some...

Re: 65 years young

Just got back from England compare Southern Trains with Ave, now you are having a larf. Travelled from Gatwick to Eastbourne(tickets return €70) stood all the way 45 mins. Travel to Seville same price, spotless train and loos, our own guaranteed seat peaceful and smooth journey. Decide for yourself.

Re: FilmOn

I don't know about anyone else but when I do try to access Filmon it takes forever to connect . When I asked someone about it they said that Filmon were making it harder to access so that you will pay the £100 per annum to upgrade to HD.
