Thank you blue. Really looking forward to seeing this (I'm making the assumption it's pretty well the same throughout the area, so you don't have to worry about a couple of strange types appearing at the bottom of your garden!).

I wonder if some kind resident could give me the latest blossom bulletin? Many thanks - excitement high here in anticipation of our coming long weekend. Weather forecast looks good too.

djprescott - no, they charge £4.00 each way each passenger on any debit card other than an Electron.

May I put in my customary word for the trusty Electron Visa card, the only one which doesn't incur Ryanair's payment charges. Halifax do one which you can order online and top up at the Halifax counter or, instantly, through your own internet bank. Painless and quick application - it's had some use ...

.. which is good new I hope but it does beg the question what's going on in the High Street.

I'm not sure if this is really too relevant to this post but FairFX are offering Euro 1.10 to the pound at present on their pre-charged debit card. I know this has been discussed on the forum before - the card is available free through Matalan's site. It's nice to see things moving a bit in the poun...

The link you posted was for a place in Mexico! Sorry, I thought it was a joke.

I'm not sure whether that last post is meant to be deliberately ironic or not. I think it must be, given the reference to the uneducated young and liberals with spellcheckers, whilst containing a ton of (presumably deliberate) spelling errors. Just to put this one to bed, I know how to spell "client...

A couple of years ago we were in a similar situation but at the end of the holiday. We ended up having one night at the motel on the N125 just outside of Lagoa toward Albufeira - same side as the Fire Station. I won't pretend it would give the Ritz too much of a run for it's money but it was clean a...

... it could be worse. We could have people with neither a spellchecker nor anything of interest to say. Or, indeed, totally lacking any sense of humour.

Apologies for slight hissy fit there. I signed up for Ryanair's e.mail alert service (and for BMI Baby's and Eayjet's), and the £1 each way was advised by e.mail. I've also taken out a Halifax Visa Electron debit card. You can do the application online. Electron is the only card Ryanair don't charge...

Well, don't mention it. As a matter of interest, mine are from EMA. Where do you want to go from? You might try looking at the Ryanair site. I'll keep it to myself next time.
