Vetiver Spain: March is the best time of the year to plant Vetiver. After planting Vetiver for almost 10 years now we know that the best results are when Spring comes around. This way Vetiver has a full spring and summer to absorb the heat of the summer. This plant is indigenous to India and loves the heat.
Vetiver Spain has prepared an article on “When is the best time to plant Vetiver?”

We have a lot of information on our website.

Confirmed: UK nationals will not be required to obtain a visa for Switzerland after Brexit, even for lengthy stays, the Swiss government announced on Friday.
The visa exemption will come into force on the day on the day that the current Swiss–EU bilateral agreement on the free movement of persons (AFMP) ceases to apply in the case of Brexit, the Swiss government said in a statement.

DoctorLaptop Alert: Windows 10 Update Assistant just offered me the brand new Windows 10 Creator’s Update to v1903. As always, new comps will receive the update first, then older models will follow. If your comp is more than 3 yrs old I STRONGLY suggest you get prepared now. Do a full system image backup to an external memory device and get your system updated to v1809 asap if it has not already done so.
After you do receive the v1903 update everyone needs to check their System Restore and be sure it is turned on and has at least 1% space allocated for Restore Points. These Creator’s Updates tend to reset System Restore and delete all the saved Restore Points from the pre-update version of Windows.
Also beware, if your computer was installed with a non-English version of Windows, and the display language has been changed with a Language Pack, it may revert to the original display language after a Creator’s Update. Not always, but I have seen it happen many times!



Lost cat: Blanca, my much loved 4 year old white female cat went missing in the Sayalonga campo on Saturday 17th March. Although completely white, she is neutered, not deaf but very timid. I live on the ridge road (La Rabita) crossroads just above Sayalonga village. Gail.
