Re: Orange contract

2nd for the one in Ingenio, there is also one in Torre del Mar at the top of Calle del Mar that is away from the sea, also has English.
Nothing in Torrox and I think the one in Nerja is part of a multi provider outlet.

Note the moon rise/set times it's a very bright moon at the moment which won't aid viewing.

Re: Hospital Comarcal - good? Or go Private?

My wife has just had a major emergency operation there and was impressed (not easy) by her treatment during the week of her stay so much so that she (I) bought chocolates for the nurses on her discharge.

Re: No bags at Lidl

My local Lidl was doing a roaring trade in paper bags and the raffia bags this afternoon, when all five tills were open :) :)

Wife's Surgeon, who prescribed it knew the risk but prescribed it as it was the best for the job.
He was of the opinion that only a few people were affected.

Re: Nolotil

I know one who swears by it too, he (they) are near Gerona and get it OTC. Doesn't seem wise to me. When wife complained she has been changed to good old Ibuprofen 600.

As some will know this painkiller is banned in Spain for issue to the English.

Re: security

Normal, as staff on nights we were not allowed ready meals inside the secure area. On days we were expected to use the canteen but again ready meals were prohibited.

Re: Local bank closing ... how do I?!

Visit your local tax office for the government taxes and your Electricity supplier for the lecky bill and ask, you can set up on line with Endesa but I guess you wouldn't want to do that.

Re: Local bank closing ... how do I?!

Not a lot seem to know but you can set your DD for the Government bills and Electricity so they are an equal monthly payment. It makes managing them easier.

Dog Behaviourist

Re: Market days?

I think the Pueblo one is on top of the underground car park behind the Local Police office. It's quite small I believe.
The Costa one runs along the service road, sea side of the coast road, starts just past Avda America and finishes at the Hotel.
Get the bus down.

Re: Does the team think

That is the plan, removal is awkward and would probably ruin the terrace round the pool, maybe even some of the pool plumbing, it's the skimmer end and who knows where the pipes run.
(Repairing the front terrace starting today has revealed a whole new nightmare)

In the line of the shot further on there are more dying trees. so we think it's disease. Anything to be done or do we look to a wall.

Hedge looks like it is dieing. it is well established coming with the house 10 years ago. We have had it capped a few years ago and it thickened up beautifully. This is new this year. I think it might be important that the Eucalyptus behind is showing signs of death, as is the conifer to the left of...
