Amazon Spain

For those now having problems with buying from Amazon U.K. my experience with Amazon.es may help. Firstly it is only in Spanish and Portuguese but Google translate easily overcomes this. Initially try your U.K. password but if this does not work it is easy to create a new one. 'Forgotten password' ...

Re: Returning to Portugal?

Have you enquired at the Centro de Saude ? I believe this will be done free of charge for residents and may be cheaper, if not free, for property owners who have an Identificaçao do Utente (Health Service I.D. number).
Alternatively try one of the private medical centres such as Monte Carvoeiro.

Re: Returning to Portugal?

I am finding this topic interesting as we are desperate to get back to U.K. to see our family and look forward to continued updates. In the meantime if anyone is coming out, or knows someone coming out, I would be grateful if they could bring my repaired spectacles in their case (or pocket) to save ...

Re: Accountant "Cecol" in CVO

Yes they are still there and my (excellent) accountants but I also have difficulty with e-mails and now only phone 282 181 360/1 for contact.
They did say recently that they are not taking new clients at this time.

Re: Vimar restaurant

Yes but (understandably) cut down on staff. Just seems to be Joao (not he most extrovert !) and a pleasant Ukrainian girl serving + a cook.

Take aways - awful or fantastic ?

Personally I do not fancy the idea of takeaways because most of the fun is in the eating out in different surroundings and having a freshly cooked meal, served probably with a nice glass or three of wine and often in company. The very thought of 3 courses served all together at less than optimum tem...

Re: Utter madness

Widge you have put into my mouth words which I did not say or imply. My questions perhaps in a more understandable way are :- 1/ why are the statistics presented in such an abnormal and scaring way ? 2/ why concentrate on the relatively harmless cause rather than the deadly effect ? If the pneumonia...

Re: Utter madness

Well I seem to have opened a can of worms, as the expression goes - but at least it has proved there is still life in the forum !! Whilst the two sides will never agree there are some facts that must be considered and questioned. Distortion of statistics - a rate of 250 in 100,000 sounds horrific un...

Utter madness

Portugal is the most infected country in Europe. Lagoa is the safest place in Europe. Who are these people trying to rule our lifes with distorted statistics - quoted in 100,000's to make them seem worse ? Portugal's mortality rate 10,000 of a population of 10,000,000 is 1.0 in every 1000 or 0.1% U....
