Re: Positive health news

Article published one minute into April fools day. I wonder if that's anything to take into account. Although my mother drank two (large) glasses of red wine every night for 35 years while she lived in Spain and only had reading glasses................. so maybe that validates it :-)

Re: The sweet sounds of someone being murdered in alhaurin campo !!

In my parents time in rural Ireland people would talk about hearing a "Banshee crying". It was as you have found out a fox looking for sex ! I've heard the same and have tried to keep the dog quiet.

Re: 90 in 180 days

Of course you lads could do a family tree search and see if Granny was Irish (or French) and then apply for an EU passport.

Brexit & 90 rule.

Serious question. Are UK residents in theory only meant to stay for a maximum of 90 days in Spain ? So if you wanted to spend five months in your holiday home has this legal ?

Re: Benamara/Benavista Footbridge over A7 Highway

I was twent meters from it two years ago when it was struck by a low loader with a very large excavator on it. The chap I was with is from Belfast and he ducked as he thought it was a bomb going off. The repair was carried out properly and it's good again. I can't see Marbella or Estepona wanting to...

Re: Benamara/Benavista Footbridge over A7 Highway

Hi David, You are correct, the lift is in the commercial center and nothing to do with the bridge. Why are the ex pat group trying to find out who's responsible for the bridge ? Is the issue that it's not wheelchair / pram friendly ? The next bridge 400 m towards Estepona is completely ramped and us...

Re: Benamara/Benavista Footbridge over A7 Highway

This is the footbridge at Neli G's restaurant ? There's no lift on it unless you mean the lift in the commercial center ?

San Pedro to Estepona . . . Restrictions ? ?

I can't find anything online so I'm curious to hear from anyone in the Parish :lol: . What's happening there ? What's the R number like ? No intention of travelling until I've had vaccine. It's been over a year since I've been to my place but I'll have to wait longer.

Unless you cash in your shares you wont loose. So most shares will bounce back in time. Sit back and hold on for the roller coaster ride.

Energy certificates baffle me too; they're about as pointless as the emissions figures for a diesel VW, but I believe they're EU law.
