Vimar restaurant

On our previous two visits the food could have been at best described as 'ordinary'. Yesterday 4 of us went for lunch and the improvement was amazing - plaice (solha) large and cooked to perfection, chicken piri moist and tender (although could have done with a little more pirpiri) and spare ribs wh...

Re: New covid rules

The big questions are :- How has it become worldwide ? (and we cannot blame Boris for that !)
Who stands to profit from it to the detriment of billions of ordinary people ?

Re: New covid rules

Just the point I was making ! Figures roughly the same for U.K.

Just remember " Don't panic Mr. Mannering" !! I bet dear old Clive is laughing his boots off up there !

Re: The great covid-19 con trick !!

The critical factor is mortality rate. Estimated deaths in U.K. allegedly from Novid-19 is 56,000. This sounds terrible on its own until compared with a requirement, in the U.K. with a population of 70,000,000 and lifespan of 80 years, to have 875,000 deaths per year to maintain the population level...

Re: Update webcam

Turned up towards the sky but still smeared. White spirit needed to clean the lens and adjust down.

Where is the camera ? Can one of our more fit forum members not get to it ?

Re: Fibre optic broadband

If you are with Nowo they had a breakdown last night. We had low speed early evening - off completely for half hour and then back to normal.

The great covid-19 con trick !!

Medical practitioners all over Europe are starting to rebel against the draconian measures 'to control covid-19 infection' which actually may cause more deaths than non-intervention, cerainly cause psychological and financial problems and distract doctors from treating more important health problems...

Portuguese driving licence

I applied for a portuguese driving licence in February this and, apart from a receipt for € 30 to show if I am stopped by GNR, have not had any further correspondence.
Is 8+ months normal for this process ? Have others had problems with switching licences ?

Logs

Any recommendations for buying logs ? We have had the same supplier for the past 5 years but his price goes up year by year and he is now quoting € 180 per tonne. I have heard of other people paying as little as € 125 - but what is the quality ?

Having seen note of this on the front page I followed the link and came to superbly produced advert with all the stars, telephone numbers etc. - but one thing missing . THE FREQUENCY !!.

How can I listen to it without this ? :roll:

Re: WEBCAM

You can see webcams for the whole of Portugal at www.beachcam.meo.pt/livecam including CVO. The image has reduced in size lately but better than nothing. Life otherwise goes on as normal but quieter in the hottest summer (sea at 23c and rising !) we have experienced in 20 years. Could I suggest movi...

Re: Covid 19 Isolation

This may help - alternative airlines.com are offering free cancellation protection in the event of an airline cancelling a booking after you have booked it through them. Whilst this does not protect your holiday it does at least ensure you are not losing your air fare. Hope this may help.

Re: All Restaurants

I believe some restaurants are doing takeaways and some doing also home delivery.

It would be helpful both to us and to them to have som info on this.
