Warning – Theft in Hospital

My wife is critically ill in Carlos Haya.

She left her only means of contact, her Smartphone, being charged by her bedside. About midnight an unseen thief entered her room, (with two ill patients) unplugged her mobile and stole it.

How anyone can steal from someone seriously ill is beyond me but slime comes in human form sometimes.

She is as much devastated by such callousness as her illness.

I wish to warn other seriously ill people of this possibility, in any hospital.

Please also pray for my beautiful, caring wife. Thank you. Tony Randall



End of Centipede (no more please- Editor)

Many thanks to the readers who kindly named the fearsome beast for us!

I had not realized the blighter was venomous or I would not have asked my missus to prod it whilst I made a video of it!

Recommendation needed –Sofa & Chair Coverings

I’m looking for recommendations for someone to cover a settee and two chairs with material already chosen.

I wonder if anyone could help suggest who to contact.

What’s on –Cinesurhttp://www.cinesur.com/home.php?id_cine=219

A rather confusing situation this week. The screenings listed below are those shown on the Cinesur website. However, other websites which list film times show a number of other screenings. For example they list Wonder Woman as being shown on Mon, Tue and Thur at 17:00, as well as on Wed. They also list performances of the Jessica Chastain film – The Zookeeper’s Wife – on Tuesday. If in doubt, check with the cinema before travelling.
