Re: Do not trust Sabadell (Solbank) Home Insurance

So you didn't read the policy then ? Thirty years in the insurance industry as a broker and I never cease to be amazed by the expectations of the consumer. Seriously ? You expected to be covered for "accidental damage" to your goods ? And Spain is a different trading area to the UK so nobody is surp...

Re: Power of Attorney

In Ireland you need to have the person (mother in your case) undergo a test with her GP to ensure she fully understands whats happening. This involves some general knowledge questions and some maths questions. This shows if she is mentally all there. The doctor then signs a form to show the results....

Re: flying from malaga

I've never had a delay being transferred from Malagacar's office to the terminal. A lot of times they even use the car I've just returned in to drive me up to departures. My last experience of this was march 21st.

I'd guess your community administrators will sort it for you if it's bad design in the chimney. So I guess it is raining there ?

Re: Channel 4 A New Life in the Sun

Well done with the earlier series. It was well put together and the people taking part were interesting. Although some of the "older members" here knocked it I enjoyed it, particularly the chef from the Blue Marlin. He must be the only "real chef" on the CDS.

Re: A meal in Puerto Banus

That rings a bell alright. On the food front , you use the cocktail sticks to pay for food in Lekune. In Estepona you must go to La Esquina de Arte http://www.esquinadelarte-estepona.com/ It's got great atmosphere and great food.

Re: A meal in Puerto Banus

Richard, forget PB, the food is only average there now. Unless you want to people watch ? That would be my main reason to go there now. A place thats definately worth a visit is "Lekune" a tapas place in Marbella. The place is always busy. They bring the "freshly cooked" tapas to your table. The bus...

Caminito del Rey tickets (again)

Every day is booked out for next few days. Has anyone here just turned up on spec and asked the booth or retail outlets for tickets ? I seem to remember a good percent of tickets were given to other outlets to draw business in. Any thoughts ?

Re: Bogus Gas Appliance Inspectors!!

My point about changing pipes is - I agree you and I can but how many actually do? How many folk out there have pipes in use with an expired use by date? They do degrade. Olive is correct. When my sister sold her place she gave me her expensive and rarely used gas barbecue. After the second time us...
