Deleted without n...

you can understand a problem in the UK with indigenous workers if the Poles are working for nothing....but in Spain they cant have such an easy entry into the jobs market, if the Spaniards also work for 'nothing', can they?

My lad has just returned from orocco, after a holiday there with his leggy, blonde girlfriend.
He was offered 1000 camels AND a shop for her! :shock: Given the import duty on a 1000 camels is a bit steep....he brought her home instead. :D

This seems one civilised dog if you think about it. We knowit got the stuff on its paws...but how did it get it all over its @rse? Obviously wiping it after a crap. If it had used an Andrex puppy instead of paper - it would have saved itsself all this bother. :wink:

Also I would certainly check that no @rsehairs are stuck together across the expanse of its crevice or when it cocks a leg it will be agony :shock: a letter opener may be used to relieve this conundrum.

Ive given up eating pork pies here. Theres so much crap in them nowadays, its too off-putting.

The 'work' thing is my big - in fact massive, only concern about moving to Spain. Are there areas of Andalucia where its non-existant....or even worse, only small areas where its not non-existant?

Judging by the amount of p.m. I have received apparently a lot of the forum members agree with my mother. Is your mother some kind of authority on empty vessels, then? Personaly, i cant do with folk who tear strips off other folk- accusing them of banal postings.....when their very reason is equaly...
