Re: Get your food from the UK soon.

I know I can get Heinz beans in Mercadona but Branston are my favourite, although we don't eat them very often. I like the Quorn products (cannot eat anything with soya in it). Even some veggie products are quite processed so I tend to make most things from scratch if I can so I can control what go...

Re: Get your food from the UK soon.

Yes Patrica there are some awful things going on. I have read the cattle at sea story. The least we can do is to ensure animals have a decent life however short. The UK is banning the export of live animals this year despite protests from the NFU. I know that is great news and they are also banning...

Re: Get your food from the UK soon.

It is best that they are not born at all. Some of these animals are kept in dire conditions, pigs in crates who cannot move, chickens so large their little legs cannot carry them. Calfs taken from their mothers and kept in tiny sheds until they are killed. Long distance traveling, with weeks at sea ...

Re: Get your food from the UK soon.

Well done to that :thumbup: also tofu in curry. You do not notice the difference as it absorbs the taste of the curry. Pigs lead a terrible live, it is up to human beings to change that. It does take will power and a caring attitude to innocent animals.

Re: Get your food from the UK soon.

Perhaps you do better if you only wanted vegan like Patricia! Sid Well it would help the planet as well as the poor animals which die in the process. People need reminding that we are in this mess because of the way we treat animals and take away their habitat as well as their ability to feed thems...

You can get Branston in Supersol and Heinz beans in Mercadona.

Most of the products you can purchase in Spanish supermarkets apart from a few.

Re: Get your food from the UK soon.

Well I went in to Russell's last week and they seemed to have most of everything. Didnt see any empty shelves at all. Not that I buy much there. I just purchase the vegan products and plenty of those. :thumbup:

Re: SPEAKERS NOT WORKING

Hello Screagle, Thank you for your post. That is interesting that it happened to you. No idea what happened as I was using them the day before, but the next day had no sound. :o I do not really know what happened. If you sent into sound you couldn't do anything. The computer wasn't recognising them!...

Re: TINY PRINT ON GOOGLE CHROME

Yes it isnt on the web page. I can enlarge that using alt and - + but it is the writing in the bar where I type if I want to view something. I cannot see anything in the menu of chrome because it is too small. The other thing which has happened is that all my icons have got very small! :problem: Hee...

Re: TINY PRINT ON GOOGLE CHROME

OK I will try that see if it works.

Tried that. Nothing happened. I can press Control and plus and minus, that makes the page larger and the writing on the page, but no in the bar where I type what I want to see ie Facebook, news etc. :problem:

TINY PRINT ON GOOGLE CHROME

Another one for Enrique! :) When I use chrome the print in the search bar is so tiny I cannot read it. And when I click on the tree dots to go to settings. I cannot read a thing. :problem: It is the same on here when I click on the smilies. The writing is so small I cannot see it!! Trying to keep En...

Re: New CaixaBank fees ... time to change banks?

Hi Patricia Well done with your complaint to Caixa. I posted last year about our garage owners bank account with them and excessive fee increases. There are only three owners and our community president told me that Caixa had increased their fees for our account to 30 euros per month (!). As far as...

Re: New CaixaBank fees ... time to change banks?

I am in the same position as you Patricia. My fees at Caixa have become £22 a month. Just noticed this month that my house insurance has doubled without notification. I cannot communicate as do not speak enough Spanish. So will have to wait until I can get over, whenever that will be. I am really m...

Re: New CaixaBank fees ... time to change banks?

Since I last posted about La Caixa.. I actuall made a complaint to their head office and I got my money back for service charge and now I do not pay any service charge at all :thumbup:

Although I am still going to set up a Transferwise bank account. Seems a very sensible thing to do! :D
