Re: Electronic cigarettes

Thanks. The Intellicig looks as good as any, except he has now said he wants a blue or green tip.

I hadn't realised how complicated it all is.

Electronic cigarettes

Has anyone used these?

My son has asked for one for Christmas and a quick Google throws up lots of affiliate sites. I would rather have a recommendation from someone who has used them.

Nothing to do with Andalucia, but I do need to buy from somewhere that will ship here.

Re: Wood cleaner

Thank you very much Alicia. It's very simple and doesn't cost you anything other than the price of your normal purchase. The best way is to: Go to the APARIV web site www.apariv.org Click on "Donate with Amazon". This is the second tab along the top menu bar. Bookmark the page to use in the future. ...

Re: Wood cleaner

Thank you. The postage charge on Homecare Essentials is a bit expensive at 20.50, so I'll have a try of the alternatives.

Re: Wood cleaner

Found it on Ebay but the seller says it can't be shipped as it is an aerosol.

A Spanish alternative would be great if anyone knows of one.

Re: Wood cleaner

Amazon UK just say it isn't available for this area. It isn't on Amazon.es.

I hadn't even thought of Ebay, but I'll take a look. Thanks.

Re: Volunteers needed urgently

Still struggling, I'm afraid. I'm managing to rope my OH in occasionally, but we really could do with more volunteers. Some days we are really short of help and just having one extra person can make a huge difference. It's a happy refuge where the dogs are well cared for and it's nice to be a part o...

Volunteers needed

The APARIV dog refugio at Rincon de la Victoria is in urgent need of volunteers, particularly over the next few months. It's smelly work, so not for the faint hearted, but very worthwhile. Once the clean up is done, there is time to socialise with the dogs who will love you to bits. Volunteers are n...

Archie needs a home

I mentioned this dog on another thread but now I've (hopefully) worked out how to add a photo, I thought I would give him a thread of his own. A volunteer with APARIV Dog Refuge has been fostering this cute little fellow until he finds a permanent home. She is due to go back to the USA in November a...

Re: Missing dog in the Algarrobo area.

Kaya was found last night in Torre del Mar. He had sausages for tea and will now be a very spoiled dog. It's lovely to get him back.
