How do you work out how many tiles you need? I have some steps that need re-tiling and I cant work out how many square metres to buy. I have 19 steps and they measure 19cm high by 32cm wide and the bit you put your foot on is 23cm deep.....it's driving me mad trying to work it out!

I am spending far too much time on my computer and have really missed my piano which I had to sell before I came out here. Does anyone know where I could buy one? perhaps someone has a second hand one for sale? Look forward to hearing from you.

Apparently propane gas burns hotter, but can you use it as an alternative on boilers and cookers without having to change anything on the appliances? I have been told it is cheaper too?

I have noticed that a lot of Spanish people's lemon/orange orchards have rose bushes planted in them, and wondered if this is some kind of companion planting or for some other reason. Anyone know?

I cant afford a real pool, but was looking at the above ground ones. For about 600 euros I could get a decent enough size, but wondered if anyone has one and if they are OK?

Has anyone tried these energy saving plugs that can save you up to 35% of electric? They cost about 50€ so I wanted to make sure they work.
