Advice Please Floor Causes

In response to this post on Digame, I found this on the internet which might help.  There is a video in English which explains the situation.


Spanish banks owe home owners more than 5 billion euros!  Following a judgment of the European Court of Justice on 22nd December 2016 you may be able to claim compensation from your bank if you have a mortgage containing an unlawful floor clause or clausula suelo.     James.

Tail Torrox is desperate to find the right home for Tony. 

He is a German Shepherd cross, castrated and  who has been in the refuge for over 2 years. He is between 3 and 4 years old. Highly intelligent and knows basic commands but has had some aggression issues ( due to being in the refuge). He is best suited to someone who is interested in doing some training with him. He is very active and walks well without a lead and good on recall. We would not recommend him to go to a family with young children and he would be best in a home as the sole dog or a female. A family with experience of dogs is also best. If you would like to meet him, please contact Gill on 633405560  or ogillyarmstead@gmail.com.  It is now much easier and cheaper to send dogs to the UK so if anyone is interested, please contact me for more information


Drive to UK

I am travelling back to UK with my 2 dogs via the tunnel, towards the end of this month, date not yet fixed. Would anyone like a lift, helping with the driving or navigation? I live in Torrox. Phone me on 633515210 or email on clarondene@gmail.com. Alison

Services – Reply to Yahoo Email Support Inquiry

Yahoo free email does not have live user support, that is only available to users on paid plans. Free email users must email them, use social media or post on their user forums for support. Any website or phone that claims to be live Yahoo free email support is fake, usually an India-based phone bank, and they will either charge you by creditcard for a fake fix, or they will try to install some software that will infect your computer. Do NOT try these no matter how desperate you are! The 1st thing Yahoo Support will tell you is to update to the newest iOS and then update your Yahoo app or Mail app, whichever you use.
