I am really sick of the hard water here and have been trying to find out more about a device which you fit where the water comes into the house, which softens the water. I would love to hear from anyone who has one of these as to whether it is good value for money and makes a difference to the water. Or would i be better just to buy one of the special taps for drinking water and not worry about the hardwater throughout the rest of the system?

I was talking to someone this afternoon, that was saying the law here has changed with regard to your burglar alarm going off and the police being called. Apparently you must now have 3 sensors in the home or business, which all have to be triggered before the police will attend the scene. Does anyone know anything about this?

I have just bought an antique bed, but need a mattress for it. It is not the usual size for mattresses these days. Has anyone got any ideas as to what I could do, or where I could get one from....even made to measure perhaps?

Can anyone tell me what to do with my fridge. It keeps freezing up, even when turned down low...is it worth getting someone out to see it, or will that cost me a fortune?

We were thinking of putting in Freeview into our apartment, we thought it might help with getting it rented out. Can anyone give us an idea of costs involved. We are in an apartment block and I believe its pretty straight forward. We are in Almerimar. Thanks

Has anyone else had problems cancelling a contract with orange? I recently tried to cancel their Internet Everywhere service by phoning their helpline - they asked me to send a fax with lots of details and now they say that they never got the fax...I don't really want to get into repeatedly sending faxes and have proof that I sent the first one - if I cancel payments from my bank account will this cause me any problems?

I was given a free sample of Tenn Brilliante Bano by my neighbour yesterday and thought I'd post about it as it is new. Its a multi purpose bathroom cleaner, but one of the better products I have used since getting to Spain - you can either mix it in a bucket to mop the floors or use it neat on a cloth to wipe sinks, tiles etc. The fragrance is nice - clean without being overpowering, and it doesn't foam up all over the place like some cleaning liquids do! I was particularly impressed because it got rid of cal-marks on taps and fittings in the bathroom, I;d been buying a seperate cleaner for that so this Tenn stuff is a good timesaver. Has anyone else tried it? What did you think? At 3.50€ it seems quite expensive but looks like a bottle will go a long way.
