Re: Bought A New Satellite Box

Hi Beach I will go through the menu one step at a time and write the sequence down and then detail it to you to save on torturing everyone with a one step at a time sort of post. I think if I don´t get anywhere today then I probably will take Sid´s advice and see if I can return it to Al Campo. That...

Re: Cost of Spaying A Cat or Dog

Hi Spanish Lady Well, when I went to pick the cat up, I asked the girl how much it would cost to have the dog spayed. She asked what type of dog, and I said a sort of Cocker Spaniel type, but on the slightly larger size. She asked what the weight was and I told her I recked she was probably between ...

I dropped the cat off at 10.30 am and picked her up at 5.30 pm. The cost inclusive of five days worth of antibiotics w...

Re: Online petition

Do you think if people who believe this is a rather mean spirited thing to do and who were against this fine being introduced, bombarded Mijas Town Hall with loads of emails, protesting against it, would help.

Re: Satellite Box

Hi Beachcomber and Spanish Lad

Honestly. I have definitely checked everywhere and there is no scart pin head socket. It´s a Samsung Series 5 LED if that helps any.
