Doggie Needs New Home Please  

doga01 dog01

This is a Podenco named Lisa. She is approximately 15 months old and has spent the past 7 months in kennels.

She has never had a home of her own so is desperate for love and attention.

She is:

Super sweet and affectionate – wants to cuddle on the couch with you!

Good with other dogs

Very high energy so needs lots of exercise

Best in a home with no young children or cats

Dogs are fine if they can handle her energy

Patience for a young dog is required

She would do well with an active person/family where someone is either home most of the time, or will have someone to care for the dog when they can’t.

Thank you so much.  Cheers, Hindy Pearson

Information & Advice Needed Please Selling own produce ?

Hi all Digamites  – Hope someone out there can enlighten me on the question of bestway to get our produce shifted without going the autonomo way.

I have been searching Google etc. for long time but no solution.

On our land we have about 100 trees which are tended by ourselves and

give a good small  crop – Until now we have been harvesting the avocadoes and delivered them to fruit-grocers on the coast via other persons using their registered VAT number and then paying the persons extra taxes on the extra income directly to the person. But it is a bit messy/complicated  and especially since no big amount  (around3000 Euro total a year)

Looking for other options without need of  involving others.

Do you NEED to be registered as autonomo yourself to deliver produce to

deliver to a fruit wholesaler – (Seems  wholesalers always ask for VAT number/autonomo number)

Are there other ways – Co-ops/whatever without needing to be autonomo

(the co-op deducts/pays the tax on delivery/whatever)

There must be other people out there having some land with small  produce which

they tend/harvest/sell instead of it just going to waste. How do you this.

Advice on this much  appreciated.

Regards Erik

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
