I've got this neighbour who's favourite pastime seems to be incinerating garden vegetation close to my patio and jacuzzi.  I find this particularly annoying because he burns damp vegetation that smoulders for ages, and also because he has a reasonable sized garden and could burn it elsewhere.  What can I do about it?

Kevin, you have picked up on yet another really interesting and sensitive political issue.  One could suggest that perhaps the issue of the Spanish enclaves in north Africa merits its own discussion topic in this forum. Why indeed should the Spanish enclaves be treated any differently from Gibraltar?  The Spanish government's line is that their enclaves are different from Gibraltar because they are fully integrated into Spanish society.  However, one use the same argument in the context of Gibraltar.  The Spanish also state that Gibraltar was seized by the British.  This is only a partial truth.  The Dutch helped and should be given credit for doing so. I personally believe that the Spanish government are simply duplicitous on this particular issue.

I've got an intermittent problem on my laptop.  I recall that there's an application that I can run that performs a thorough memory test - such as checking that one address is not corrupted when another is written. I've had a look on google but can't find it.  Can anyone tell me what it's called?

I see there are lots of very knowledgable people on this forum, I'm guessing it comes from years and years of experience on living in Spain. How long does it take to feel at home here? Susie

Can anyone tell me what it is like around the Alicante area for buying a house, living there?  Having bought a house in N France, two years down the line, we know we have made a mistake yet all types of research was undertaken, ie visiting at all seasons of the years, speaking to other expats, buying all the necessary books etc etc  I just do not want to make a mistake again, it is getting a little expensive!

We have an unblocked phone, now using Orange in France. We are going to Spain next weekend to visit fiends and family and hopefully see a bit of sun. The weather has been iffy for a while here in Brittany, so we hope the weather is better in Spain ? Anyway, can we buy a sim card in Spain and put it in our phone and if so, where, how and what is the best way to go about it ? Using the mobile on a French provider and with several calls to make whilst in Spain, will be a very expensive way to make calls ! Thanks in advance for any help. Rance

Hi To All Spanish Anglo Info Readers. Just a bit of advice really. At the moment both my partner and i had to return back to the uk as we couldn't find work in Brittany,  a story i'm sure everyone has heard before!!! he's now decided to sell his property and we're both looking at possibily moving to Spain,where it's warmer. Although we 'd loved Brittany job prospects and red tape is a real pitfall(again i'm sure you've heard this all before) ideally the sort of thing we're looking for is a house that's habital but we're prepared to some renovations if needed, 3 bedrooms to accommodate the family, a nice bit of land as we have 4 dogs and somewhere slightly rural but close enough to all local bars and amenities, as we both drive. Price we're looking at is approx 80,00e's, also can any one recommend some area's as neither of us have really got a clue where to look.Some advice would really be appreciated. Many Many Thanks.Kirby-Dog

I am visiting Spain for three weeks and need 3G UMTS Internet access for my laptop. Roaming costs on my home-based 3G card are absurdly high, so I would like to hire a local Spanish 3G card. Does anybody know where I can do this?
