Re: Crab

I must have had at least a dozen frozen ones and they all were full of meat. Not as good as a big fresh one!

Re: ITV Documents

I am with Linear Directa and I once asked about cover with no ITV. They said that the cover was not affected as the ITV test does not prove it is roadworthy. The existence of an ITV certificate doesn’t stop the brakes failing 5 minutes after you leave the test station. The question of whether it was...

Re: INSS in Velez

You have to book online, not by phone. If you don't have a mobile do it on your PC. I think you can just turn up without an appointment but it could be a long wait.

Re: Crab

Alcampo usually have it. You can buy frozen crab easily in Mercadonna and it's not bad - Irish I think.

Re: Intelsat 907

That can happen when the sky above is clear, but there is a patch of rain to the west in the direct line to the satellite. That was the case today when the rain moved towards Málaga.

I know how you feel, every time there is the slightest glitch you think it’s the end of its life!

Re: INSS in Velez

I would take your existing medical card as well. I did this recently and it was an easy process. You keep your existing number and your old card will work OK.

Re: Selling our rural house.

You also need the be aware that once a DAFO has been granted, you cannot make any changes, extensions, covered areas etc. In the future. Some are of the opinion that it is better to buy a house without a DAFO and then extend it and then apply for a DAFO to regularise it.

Re: Activity clubs drama / golf / sailing / art Caleta / Torre / Velez Malaga - help please!

Yes, there are lots of English language free magazines, but they are mainly full of adverts for restaurants and property and rarely contain any useful info apart from a few recipes and links to useful sites. There are exceptions of course, but they are pretty rare.

Re: Activity clubs drama / golf / sailing / art Caleta / Torre / Velez Malaga - help please!

I am still a member but don't play a lot now. They also play at Añoreta just up the road. I did a lot of sailing some time ago. We lived on our boat and notched up 13000 miles in 5 years cruising the med. Sadly, sailing on the Costa del Sol is not good. There really isn't anywhere worth going to apa...

They can grow pretty big. Ours, after 17 years is over 4m high. Looks fabulous when it blooms.

Re: Seeing Africa last evening from Nerja

You cannot see the Riff mountains about 160km away. That of course is your opinion. There seem to be a very large number of people who disagree with you. It seems to me that you are not taking into account refraction effects (which you could argue is an optical illusion). Wiki says this about it. R...

Simple - buy it from Amazon and if you don't like it, send it back and try another one.
