I was once in a Spanish market, I picked up a film to look at ( off a blanket on the floor) a policeman appeared...

Highland Park 15 or18 year Whisky

We looked for this in duty free, none. Next step is Gibraltar, but a long drive for us. If anyone is off to GiB in the next few weeks could you keep an eye our for me, not to buy, just for the price, thanks

Every year we say we must go, my husband was born in Douglas, the village where Sir James Douglas came from.

We have visited Teba, just not at the Douglas Day festival

Re: Need a dress for the Feria

Whilst I love the way hundreds of Spanish dress up in their traditional flamenco clothes for ferias, I think that a non-Spaniard wearing it is vaguely insulting - it becoming more fancy dress costumes like Batman outfit or Wonderwoman? Would the locals in east London appreciate Spanish residents dr...

Re: What to bring with you.....

I would bring a suitcase of shredded wheat! At least we can buy Weetabix here and Tetley teabags. Other than that we buy Spanish!

Re: What to bring with you.....

Wicksey surely what is nice for many new immigrants is to have a few familiar things as they start out on their adventure. And often at that stage they don't want to be splashing loads of dosh on products they could have bought for a fraction of the price a few days before. As you say the price can...

Re: Annoying repetitive phonecall

Thanks Beachcomber and Enrique for your replies. We have an insurance policy with Santa Lucia , we will be going into their office on Monday! It would not be so bad if someone actually spoke, we just get the hang up tone! I could do what my sister does to nuisance calls, sing to them!

When we were trying to catch some young dogs living under some prickly pears we gave one pill, she still ran, so the next time gave 2 pills in food lef...

Re: HITS MOBILE

I spoke to a gentleman at Hitsmobile this afternoon, who insisted his computer is correct. I asked for the number of the chief executive, sorry, not allowed to give that out!
He must get lots of complaints, so in hiding!
