I've noticed that since I moved to Spain, all of our white clothes seem to become discolored(yellow marks and greying mostly). I have changed soap powder several times with no decent results - has anyone got any suggestions what I can do so that my whites come out white again!

Has anyone tried buying and growing any of the market veggie plants you see? I tried melons last year and they got so big and then withered. The year before I tried peppers and they werent too good either. I fancied trying onions, has anyone got any tips?

I am thinking of buying one of the fan assisted log burners. They are expensive but apparently give out more heat whilst using less wood. Has anyone got one of these that they could comment on?

Some friends of mine are looking at a long term rental on a property with a pool. The pool has not been used for a long time and the water is dirty and needs draining. Anyway, their prospective landlord is offering some agreement on rent discount if they sort the pool out for themselves. Just wondering if anyone can advise as to how difficult the job is -will they be able to do it themselves or hire someone to do it, and if so how much is it likely to cost?

I wanted to build a small porch on the front of my house, does anyone know if you need to get permissions for this? I live away from any roads and it wouldn't affect anyone.
