answer not !

Years ago when I worked and lived in Nigeria, we had a constant problem with fuses blowing. When I called in the local electrician, he just suggested that we replace all the fuses and by the way did we have any metal coat hangers he could use for the job !!!!

dish size

My understanding it that dish size is all important.
We have the same trouble with our 90 cm, heavy rain, time of day etc fect our viewing. If I changed to a 1.2 m dish ( so says my reliable supplier ?? ) all the problems would be solved.

Personal Security

Following Kevin77's thread about criminals, I think it would be interesting to hear how folks feel about their own security. Do you feel safer here in Andalucia than where you lived before ?

forecast

The weather around Malaga is due to be unsettled for the next few days I'm afraid. A depression is due through southern Spain during tuesday producing rain; this should be out of the way by Wed evening bringing higher temps.
No promises though, just a forecast imho !
