Oil fired boiler engineer: Long shot I know but are there any digamites out there who are or knows one that is an oil fired boiler engineer. The dodgy boiler is a Ferroli Atlas D30K 100 and provides hot water and central heating. It has history. The two issues with it are too difficult to explain here but a quick phone call will be advisory. If anyone can help I would be forever grateful especially if they can fix it.

Some owners of illegal homes still ignored by new law, says SOHA: President Philip Smalley and spokesperson Mario Blancke of SOHA (Save Our Homes Axarquía) have expressed their concern that that the new decree passed in September by the Junta de Andalucía “leaves out people who had their building licences annulled”.
While the campaigners said that they would “always support any initiative taken by the Junta to help legalise homes,” the latest ruling “makes the same mistake as previous ones,” with respect to the annulled licences.
“This time is no different and it leaves out those who bought in good faith and are victims of local authorities, the only entity able to issue the permits,” Blancke said.
The new decree means that the 68,652 properties recognised by the regional government as being irregular can now be registered. However, this still leaves a high number of property owners off the list. “Our fight must continue,” added Blancke.

Dog years are a myth and puppies are middle-aged, scientists claim: Long-held theory canines age seven times faster than humans is wrong, new research suggests. Researchers at the University of California say they have found puppies are middle-aged by the time they are two, with dogs tending to then age more slowly in later life.
By the time they get to three, dogs are roughly equivalent to a 50-year-old human, according to the study. However, ageing slows in dogs over time, meaning that by the age of 10, a labrador is similar to a person aged 68.
