Firearms – Clarification

Just to be clear, an air pistol is not a fire arm and does not require a fire arms licence.
A fire arm uses explosive fire to propel a bullet whilst an air gun uses compressed air of one sort or another.
Although the description of said pistol sounded like a lethal fire arm it was in fact a glorified air pistol using pellets or ball bearings. This type of air gun is used either for target practice or for the control of vermin. They can be easily purchased from most sports shops.

Warning – Torrox Pueblo & Fibre Broadband…..Response

We had a similar thing here in Caleta de Velez a few months ago.

Fibre Optic cable was being rolled out in this area, some of it underground and some of it above ground, depending on different conditions. We have cable above ground running across the front of our house.

This cable is being installed by Movistar ( Telefonica).

Around a week before the cable was installed we also had a visit from a guy from Jazztel, who gave us a form that he said was necessary for us to fill in to allow them to attach cable to our property. I too was dubious about this, and went to speak to the Movistar engineers who were installing the cables further along the street.

It turns out that the guy was working for Jazztel,  and if you signed the form you were signing up for Jazztel to supply Fibre Optic to your property, using the main cable laid by Movistar.

Now, I am not saying that Jazztel would be dearer  or cheaper than Movistar, or what level of service they would provide, however I felt that their sales techniques are somewhat dubious and decided to stay with Movistar.

I have heard that Fibre Optic is to be installed in Torrox Pueblo, and so Jazztel are probably using the same sales technique as they used in Caleta, so don’t sign anything unless you want to buy your service from them.

Recommendation- Bianca at Casa Blanca, Torrox Costa

I would like to inform every one in the local Torrox and Penoncillo Beach Community about my experience with Bianca at Casa Blanca.

I have suffered with crippling Arthritis for the last 35 years which has been an ongoing painful process.

Bianca has treated me for the last 3 years with such kindness and gentle encouragement to get me through some of my most difficult times.

I suffer with poor circulation also which makes me very cold.

Her various modalities of treatment including the Bowen technique and Reflexology have certainly kept me going.

I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for long term treatment which is necessary when dealing with a situation like mine which does not go away.

It is part of an attitude to well being which one must try to stay on top of even when things do get very bad at times.

So thank you Bianca for all you have done and continue to do to keep me feeling as best as I can.
