dying in spain

I found my neighbour dead last week after a call from his daughter asking me to check on him. a nice guy from Holland in his 80's we had a few calls over the months from his daughter and we didn't mind checking on him... but the point of this is simple... why do family leave an old man on his own in a villa in spain knowing he is not well? you tell me... when I called the cops and ambulance I got a grilling... not to bad but I had to be there for him... anyway he got cremated within 48 hours... the family said thank you steve and that was that. off they went... heartless


That is so sad, and well done you. I hope when my time comes I have everyone around me.

Quesada high street... whats going on...

Lots of new commercial buildings getting built which is great for Quesada but now they have built an eyesore Mas y Mas right by the entrance to Quesada... now I here they are going to close the main drag off for 6 months to re do the road layout differently? lots of businesses on this street will lose custom and some are even thinking of selling up or simply walking away as no customer + no money = nada... what are our councillor/s doing about this?


What I sent a Mas y Mas? I have always love the high street in Quesada it’s what makes Quesada different, it’s always buzzing.
But I have to agree it’s a mess these days and almost impossible to walk on the path, if you are not opstructed by cars parked over the pavement or tables and chairs from the cafes then you are going to bump into the ever increasing people that use it.
Things need to change.

I think Quesada is best known for the Arches and the high street, it has to be one of the best in Spain, I was at La Marina not long ago, it had no style to it what so every compared to Quesada.

Hello to everyone in Quesada and those of us that love the place and of course to Quesada life its nice to be back in contact with everyone again, life has not been the same over the last few months without you all.

Tattooist advert

Hi admin I tried to put an advert on here a few hours ago


Advertising on facebook

As a stay at home dad I try to make a living from working from home and signed up with a company to market their tv set top boxes and after using facebook for a while I got kicked off for a week. however they would allow me to post the same advert if I paid them! well I think this was unfair as I haven't even made a penny from it yet after a month... I don't know what to do now

Built in 2011 at a cost of almost 9 million euros Torrevieja’s Social Care Centre remains closed because it still hasn’t been transferred by the Consell into the hands of Torrevieja City Council and it is still not known when it is likely to open.

The Consell say that they cannot open it yet because it “does not meet the legal requirements and also needs some modifications.

The Torrevieja mayor, José Manuel Dolón, explained that the City Council had found three problems when they were going through the process of opening it as an adult centre, family meeting point and supervised children’s centre.

The first is that the property is “not legalised” since “it has not been formally handed”. This procedure has to be carried out by the construction company that erected the building. However, according to Dolón, the architect who was in charge of the project has refused to sign a statement of completion. “It’s a case very similar to the Municipal Theatre,” said Dolon, who blamed the situation on the PP saying “the normal thing is that when the work is finished everything is signed, but it has still not happened.”

The second of the “unpleasant surprises” that have been found is that money is still owed for the construction of the building. The construction company filed an appeal in the courts to claim 245,862 euros as settlement for the works, of which 79,839 was VAT.

The third problem is related to the building plot itself as formal reports were never made, a process that is carried out prior to the commencement of construction work.

The Centre has been built on a municipal plot of 11,152 square meters, divided into 7,630 square metres of garden and 3,522 square metres of accommodation space on the ground floor. The total constructed area is 5,000 square meters which will eventually be used by such local organisations as AFA, ALPE, AMFA, ADIEM and APANEE

However, the mayor was unable to provide any indication of when the building might open.


what a waste of taxpayers money

The prosecutor’s office will provisionally ask for sentences of between five and six and a half years in prison for his illegal detention and for other injuries sustained while he was held

The events occurred last year, when the victim allowed two of the suspects, a man and a woman, to lodge temporarily with him in his house in Torrevieja.

After a few days, the host told the couple that they had to leave but they allegedly refused and locked him up in one of the rooms.

His confinement lasted for thirteen days, during which time colleagues of the couple also moved into the house, taking it in turns to keep an eye on the man.

The prosecution also alleges that they even attacked him on several occasions, to the point of breaking a rib.

The public prosecutor is demanding sentences of five years in prison for three of the accused and six and a half years for the other three, because in addition to the crime of illegal detention, they are also accused of assault.

According to the Valencian TSJ the trial will start on Monday in the seventh section of the Court of Alicante, which is based in Elche, and continue through to Wednesday.


I was following this I wonder what terms they got

A SPANISH LIFE NEWS: Brighter BREXIT outlook forces up UK Pound

The pound is at its highest level against the US Dollar since the EU Referendum, breaking GBP/USD 1.39 earlier today (Friday). It has also climbed against the euro, rising 1.2% midweek to 1.1350.

Brighter Brexit

This pound-positive activity is due to a brighter Brexit outlook; both Spain and the Netherlands suggested they would support the UK remaining closely aligned with the EU in terms of trade and Jean-Claude Juncker hinted that Britain could rejoin the EU after Brexit. This new-found optimism had a positive impact on the markets but as we know everything is temporary and there are bound to be more Brexit hurdles very soon.


Whooppee do... bring back the €1.50 per £ then I will be happy
