Dual Nationality

If you are already aware of the following, then please forgive me for wasting your time, but…

Giles Tremlett (author and journalist living in Spain) has launched an e-petition to request that the Spanish Government grant us Brits dual nationality (article in Euro Weekly News, p.14).  It can be found by searching on Google with the words Giles Tremlett and Change.org.

Roger wrote in with the address….





I assume that M.S. is saying that they are worried that their Unicaja account has been/will be blocked. There is a Europe wide / U.S. requirement that all banks ascertain that funds  they hold are legitimate – i.e. not the result of money laundering that funds terrorism/ drugs etc, so all banks have to ask customers to fill in forms (forms which are sometimes complicated).

We had to do this for our Nat West accounts in the UK, then received forms from Cajamar – in English – to our UK home address, asking that we take them into the bank in Torrox. We could not do this so I copied the forms in Word, completed the details as far as I could understand what was required, then emailed them to the branch (or head office, I can’t remember) and have not heard anything since, so assume all is well. Having been into the branch since to withdraw money, and was not questioned. Assuming a mark would have been made on our file had there been any further queries, I believe all is well.

Hope this helps – contact Unicaja, they should have contacted you in Spain or in the UK to ascertain where your funds originate. The onus is on the banks to do this.

Lost – Phone

I wonder if anyone can help? I lost my black Samsung S4 smart phone last Wednesday, between 12 noon and 2pm. I was in the “Poligono Industrial La Panoleta” , around the Carglass – Bufalo – McDonalds – Peugeot  business areas. Reward and big thanks, it was given to me by my son.

Explanation re 9ct Gold

No wonder the lady is having trouble selling her 9ct gold alloy ,

The majority of the world calls it Brass for a good reason

375 parts gold out of 1000. not a good ratio, hardly solid gold.

It does not wear better than higher quality gold.

The public has been hoodwinked for a very long time by Jewelers ,who are making large profits on selling fantasies about 9ct,

Buy gold not brass  14ct or higher is more like gold , & you can always sell it when you get tired  of it for money.
I have had over 30 years in the trade dealing with  Asian public &Far eastern & UK, guess who knows most about gold

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

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 –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

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

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
