Car Boot Algarrobo

Having just had a clear out, I'd like to do a car boot sale. I know there is one at Algarrobo in the Lidl car park. I believe it is the first Saturday of the month. If that isn't right can someone let me know please? Also, can anyone tell me how to get a pitch? Do we just turn up, and if so, at what...

Re: IBI percentage of Valor Catastral

But then other areas have entirely different values and percentages to the extent that the tax value of the house is way above the market value. This is the problem we have and it is blocking the sale of the house. The value is almost double what we can get for the property and our buyers, quite ri...

Re: fighting pups

It may help if you are able to establish yourself as boss of the food. While you are getting it ready make the dogs sit and wait, then when you put it down for them, still insist that they sit and wait until you tell them they can eat. You may need to enlist help since there are two dogs, or just fe...

Re: Any suggestions for feeding a 5 week old puppy?

What a shame. You tried your best-again. I was hoping there would be a better ending for you this time. At least you know you couldn't have done anything more.

Re: Town hall has embargo against my bank account

We are trying to get the tax liability on our house reduced in order to prevent the same thing happening to purchasers among other things. The lawyer dealing with it is a guy called Nacho who is based in Nerja. I'm sorry, I don't have his surname or contact details, but you would be able to get them...

Not such a good Christmas!

APARIV dog rescue centre have been hit hard this year by some very nasty people. First a collection tin was stolen from one of the shops. Unfortunately it was pretty full (I know it should have been emptied). Then the shop found they had accepted a number of fake notes (I know they should have been ...

Re: Town Frier Puente don Manuel

I doubt people with attitudes like that will stay in business for long. We once had a similar experience in an English run bar/restaurant at Torrox Costa. A fabulous beach front, location but they were so short staffed that customers were coming off the beach, waiting for 20 mins or so and leaving a...

Re: Can anyone help me with a Wordpress problem please?

Having struggled all day, I might have guessed I would work it out two minutes after asking for help! :oops:

Now I just need to work out how to get photos into the slider. :roll:

I'm going mad. I've just set up a new domain on a new theme, but I don't seem to have a homepage. When I try to view a page, I'm getting an error message and when I search for the site, the theme comes up, but with no content showing. I know that there needs to be a main page with the web address, b...

Re: Electronic cigarettes

Didn't work for me.

The hypnotist started out by telling me that my arms and legs were becoming heavy. That was fine. Then he told me I couldn't lift my leg. That was when my argumentative side kicked in and I just had to lift it. We kind of went down hill from there.

Re: Electronic cigarettes

I don't really think the ecigs will help, but it's a step along the way. I just want to encourage him to try.

I've ordered the books. I see he also has weight loss books, so I've treated myself too. :D
