Just wondered if any eagle eyed Digamite may have found the earring I have lost.

It must have dropped out either in Maro or Nerja.

Contact marion underscore talbot at yahoo dot com if you have found it.

Thank you.

Agua Fuerte Warning

Contrary to the previous post this is not concentrated hydrochloric acid but actually dilute nitric acid. It does however burn skin and gives off toxic nitric oxide fumes when reacting with lime scale. It can stain stainless steel sinks. It is undoubtedly effective, but used with the area well ventilated, wear durable rubber clothes and thoroughly wash it away after it has done its job. Vinegar is dilute acetic acid and whilst obviously safer does not have the power of Agua Fuerte.

I’d appreciate comments from anyone already using this company.

At 37euros per month for unlimited mobile calls & 1GB, plus ADSL & unlimited fixed line calls (plus 60 min to mobiles) it’s considerably cheaper and offers more than than Movistar …. but is this a case of better the devil you know?

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
