Re: ITV Documents

theolivepress.es has the shortage of testers as one of their lead stories. Less busy at the Ronda station apparently....

Is it a national problem?

Cannot help with personal knowledge.

Here is their events website.

If you do not get any other replies you could try ringing or emailing the tourist office.

Re: Forum down

Fingers crossed it is an improvement. Sadly my experience with the likes of Microsoft, Skype, Whats up and hotmail just to name a few is improvement actually means integration for the provider and loss of usability for the user. I for one still think the pm facility is cumbersome despite admins expl...

Re: Sending pms

hmm, that worked first time with a test p.m. to you. Thanks.

i will try the one I wanted to send in a couple of hours time

I had even convinced myself that you first had to mark the recipient as "friend". Thankfully not. Cannot imagine when you would mark someone as foe!

Sending pms

I recently have tried to send a pm to two different long standing forum members. To my chagrin , both failed. Looking back on my pm history it looks as though most of my messages are replies to other received messages which worked without issue. Can you clarify what I am doing wrong? Basically I ent...

Re: Buying a rural property - are any legal??

Will our new government make a change to these problems? One of their four platforms is depopulation of rural areas. Something I have witnessed each year. It is a complex subject but the insane difficulties with buying and selling rural houses or even getting permission to work on them cannot be hel...

Re: Seeing Africa last evening from Nerja

A few years back we were delighted to see the mountains of Africa on a day with good visibility. We were descending from the Alpujarras towards the coast. I remember there being a thread on this forum at the time. Doing a google and using the calculator on ringbell.co.uk ( the first one I found) and...

Re: Over tiling

We have had varying degrees of success. More recently we used - clean tiles, brush pva solution and use swimming pool tile adhesive ( from memory about 6 euros a sack). Works great for floor tiles. Had less success on wall tiles in a bathroom which ended up held in place by physics rather than glue....

Re: "Can't hear what they are saying..."

This is one of my bugbears. Partly down to degrade in my hearing with age and partly due to poor programme production. The latter seems to be open season for adding effects, many of which are deafening. You know they are added as you have things like foxes barking or loons calling. An easy quick fix...

Thanks Costa, i thought you might have used them. We went to the fish only spot at the far end.

Anyone tried either of the places outside in my original post?

Re: Empadronamiento

We needed a certificate today and the guy said we also needed to renew as it was five years since last renewal.

Simple and fast process. Produce your tatty green residencia card. No charge for the process.

Kiosk eateries Atarazanas

On our recent visit to Malaga centre, we spent a delightful time looking around the Atarazanas market and came away with a bagful of things. We had a seafood snack at one of the kiosks inside. ( scallops, seafood skewers and a glass of cold Verdejo). It was the wrong time of the day for a larger int...

Re: Harvesting green olives

There are maybe 200 varieties of olives. They mature at different times. Our Picauls and Hoji Blancas are ready for harvesting for oil in February for example. Ask a local olive farmer for advice on harvesting. He/she might even bring you a bucket of a different variety of green olives to try. Good ...

Re: Malaga Christmas Lights

We enjoyed the lights and music last night. Excellent atmosphere. Had a gin and tonic and a glass of wine on the rooftop of the AC hotel. Excellent experience though at 12 euros it was three times what we pay in the sticks at our local bar and no free tapas. Eight euros for the ambience was still a ...

Re: Villa Romana ( Roman Villa).Salar,Granada Province

It being a festivo and a nice day, we went to the Roman Villa today. It was open and well attended but no guides ( though there was actually a member of staff on hand to answer ad hoc questions) It must be ten years since we last went . What a transformation . A lot more has been excavated having be...

Re: Villa Romana ( Roman Villa).Salar,Granada Province

Well done Gordon. We took some visitors to the villa two weeks ago. As we approached I warned “ it might not be open, this being Spain.” Predictably it wasn’t. I think the winter hours were middle of the day Saturday and Sunday only. I might be wrong though. Anyone thinking of visiting will find it ...

Re: Is there a simple answer for uk tv?

No copper or fibre here. Jetnet operate in three nearby large villages. I have twice asked them before for service. Both times no coverage - just. In the intervening years they may have improved their signal. So a possibility and we could ditch our landline which seems to only exist for “ I am calli...

Re: Is there a simple answer for uk tv?

I have been following this thread with interest. Our satellite internet was recently faulty for about five weeks. When we got it working again predictably the uk ip address was withdrawn. Worse the temporary free uplift to 30 gb a month was returned to 20 gb. We are back to downloading programmes du...
