Re: Incoming....year 6 and counting

We live in the same area and the idea of taking your car into town is all very well but parking is almost impossible. Depending on how mobile your wife is, it may be better to do as we do - a gentle 15 - 20 minute walk into town and a 6 euro taxi ride back. The hill on the way is popularly known as ...

Re: Quiz lunch

Unfortunately, due to lack of numbers, this event has had to be cancelled. However with the number of quizzers expressing interest but unable to make this particular date, I hope to re-arrange it for a later date, probably late October. If any forumer quizzers are interested please advise me and I w...

Re: Dos Santos Craft Beer

I agree with the views of algarve123 but feel they are making a mistake by calling their food 'tapas'. They are actually further described as 'sharing plates' which creates a problem if you go alone and just want a beer (the honey flavour is particularly good !) and a snack, or if two people do not ...

Re: GLS Express parcel delivery (not)

I now use Direct Transport at Porches for all deliveries. OK you have to drive to the depot to pick up - or they will make an additional charge to deliver locally - but everything arrives within 3 - 5 days at a lower cost than Express post.

Gold light in the sky !!

When I woke up this morning there was a bright gold object in the sky, accentuated against a bright blue background - could this be the end of the world ?

Soup was hot, all mains beautifully cooked with s...
