Gas Man Warning

Be on the look out for a blue Renault Megane, registration 6016 HWF. The  men in this car arrived at our house in the campo, we are about 3kms out of Torrox on the old Frigiliana road. One man insisted that we needed a butane gas certificate, when we told him that we did not need one he became very abusive and when I went to take photos of him and his car he became very aggressive before driving off in haste. We have reported this to the Guardia Civil in Torrox and given them photos of the car and man.


Sunglasses Lost – Prescription Ones

I lost a pair of sunglasses on Wednesday 15th in the Torrox Costa area, They were in a soft black pouch. They are prescription sunglasses so would be of no use to anyone else. If anyone has found them my Spanish number is 693498713.

Many Thanks



Sunglasses Lost – Ray Bans

By chance has anybody in Torrox village come across a pair of black Ray Ban polarised sunglasses (men’s)  in the last 10 days or so.I believe I lost them on Friday 10th June.

Many thanks David . judgetorrox at gmail dot com 67 754 179 5



Recent Agua Fuerte warning

Just to be clear about this…  The term “agua fuerte” simply translates as etching or even strong water.  It is archaic term, and not precise a chemical description.

Mercadona’s widely used Bosque Verde brand of the product is clearly labelled “20% Hydrochloric Acid”.

All such strong acids should be handled with extreme caution: gloves, covered flesh, eye protection – as contributors have rightly described.  In the UK, you would not find such a product on open sale in supermarkets.


(Editor writes – this ends the subject thread. Great thanks to all who participating. Jane)

Just had a visit from Kevin and Jenny, who did a wonderful job
valeting my Volvo Estate, which was filthy inside , and full of dog

Now looks and smells like a new car, a really deep and thorough
cleaning job.

Nice friendly people to have around, and extremely efficient.

If your car could do with a complete makeover at a very
reasonable price, I recommend that you call Kevin or Jenny on

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

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