Can someone humour me..

What's the English translation of Roti Vacuno?

Indications for resort closure this year are looking positive at least until the 13th if not the 20th April subject to snow conditions.

You'll get the FTA channels and the "Freesat" channels.

Obviously I'd ensure you're not still within a contract period before you cancel your DD otherwise Sky won't take kindly to it.

PS Sorry Griff that I spelled your name wrong, I should have checked more closely.

Yeah that's the idea to make it model like.

Is anyone else fairly lucky when it comes to bites?

Every time we're at the villa people get bitten but I've been bitten once in my life.

Cheers for the reply.

I'd guessed it was one of the two but we're not flying back out until the 7th May and I was hoping it would be the following Saturday.
