Thanks to Doug – weekly movies

Hi Doug, I just wanted to thank you for taking the effort and put up the English Movies program for us.

Much appreciated that we don’t have to try and sort it ourselves..

Warm Greetings







Recommendation- Airport Transport

If you need an airport transfer the best firm you could use is Ferramar Taxis.  They charge a flat rate of 55 euro from Torrox Costa  to any point in Malaga, airport, port, RENFE or even in the centre of the city.  They are always on time (usually early) and the drivers speak some English. The lady in the office speaks good English.

The office is on the main road in Torrox Costa on that stretch between Aldi the shop that sells cushions.

Recommendation Needed – Car Insurance

Hi Digamites,

It’s that time of year for me where my car insurance is due for renewal and I am once again doing the rounds to see if I can get a better quote. I am at present with Linea Directa, whom I have been with for a few years and to be fair have been very good. Why change you may ask, well it’s always nice to to know what the other person has on offer. So I would be interested to hear of any recommendation for a car insurance, good or bad, that may be worth a phone call.

Thanks. Keith. email peakayone at msn dot com
