I was horrified yesterday to see a very young baby being floated around our local pool in the intense heat of the middle of the day. Young childrens skin is very much thinner than adults and they should be keep right out of the sun. They can burn in under 10 minutes.

I was recently told that eating lots of carrots can help you tan more quickly. It was something to do with the carotene they contain i think. Is this true, and has anyone used carrots or carotene supplements successfully to get a darker tan?

We arrive with our friends tomorrow night, with 5 kids age range 5 to 11. The forecast looks unusually poor for the time of year, so anyone got any bright ideas for places to visit if its pouring. Its half term week so I'm sure lots of others will have same problem. : ( Thanks!!!Louise, Moraira

we have just returned home from hospital ( vega baja) with our baby son who we have named marcos, we were told by the hospital that we had to take our son to the nurse in a few days to give a blood test and on the way home we called into our local health centre(bigastro) to arrange this the lady asked if we had a sip card for the baby , we said no he was only born on tuesday. we obtained our tempory sip cards for us and our two other sons by providing our ehic cards which cover all of us until july. i think the lady was saying that we need a ehic card for the baby to get a sip card as we are not yet working in spain but living of savings. is it correct and how was your experience also where do you have to go to register the birth? sorry to bombard you with these questions but we are very concerned if we need any treatment for our newborn

My husband has been suffering from tooth ache for about a week. We could not find a dentist, neighbours then suggested we try the one in Rojales just opposite the Photographs near the Museum. Dentist name is Sonja, open at 9.30 -1.30 then 5.00 to 8.00. Tooth had to come out but she did it there and then, what's more the costs was only 30 euros. Sonja and her receptionist speak some English
