Re: Car road tax

I've been looking at this thread and the one with the valuation data on with some interest. I have the chance of a good FREE working car (OK so i is a Lada Niva) that has been stored in a garage since 2006. Trouble is the ITV hasn't been renewed or the tax paid since 06 so I am trying to work out wh...

They have found a rental villa at around £200 for the week and personally I don't reckon they will find anything much cheaper. But I am in the Baza area WAY...

Re: Stung by a wasp

Now that is interesting
I have been stung by wasps hundreds of times (one of the joys of forestry work) and have never had a stinger left in by a wasp, only by bees.
Is this particular to spanish wasps?

IF this qualifies as winter, this will be our third one here and there has rarely been more than a trickle in that rambla. Having talked to the locals, we do that here, they say it happens maybe once every five years or so but few had seen the water levels so high or rise so quickly.......it wnet fo...

great pictures, lovely water, but is it saved or wasted?? You know I actually wasn't sure where the water ended up, but having played on Google earth I find it winds up in Negratin (a large embalse near Baza) And sundry small agricultural mini ponds etc en route. I'm glad you asked as it means I no...
