Re: Processional caterpillars

It appears that the only safe way of getting rid, apart from expensive and non-discriminitory chemicals, is to burn them. presumably with a blow torch or paint stripper. However cover up and wear gloves in case the irritative hairs blow about. According to folklore if you form the chain into a circl...

Processional caterpillars

These seem to be particularly prolific this year and are DANGEROUS.

I would recommend reading the extremely helpful article in the Algarvedailynews.com

Does anyone have a surplus self-propelled folding wheelchair ? We require one for occasional use.

Re: Singing Group

There is apparently a singing group in Lagoa.
If you contact retired singing/piano teacher Marganne at margannemeiklem@gmail.com she should be able to give you details.
I have explained the situation to her.

Re: A blast from the past

People used to say when they were coming to CVO and suggest a meeting place and time - there is no reason why this should not be re-instated. One problem is parking in town which cuts out most of the places mentioned by smudger. Rosa's bar in Sesmarias (cheap) and the bars at Monte Carvoeiro (averag...

Re: Pani. Spectacular Views. But is that enough?

We had a take away for 6 from here and the mains were good - voted 8/10 - but the starters were frankly pathetic with just 4 each of shrivelled up onion bhajis, chicken and vegetable pakoras - voted 2/10. So the jury is still out on this one and looking forward to more reviews.

Re: Pilots eye view Faro

Agreed ! One 747 with water/retardant mix (as used in California) could have finished this in 3 or 4 sorties.
