HI Jane & Mike

we were so sorry to hear about your van and dogs -in fact we are
jsut
back from Spain & Portugal & kept our eyes open and spread the

We take our Jack Russell away with us so we know what a loss it

be for you. Could you post a couple of pics of the dogs - we are
leaving again soon (just preparing the house to rent out

Hi all,
 
Further update on the loss of the Hymer and pets, the insurance
company has paid up, still a loss financially though.
 
We now have a smaller van, a 6m one a Compass Drfiter 360E, goes
well, had the solar panels fitted by Solar solutions in Poole, new
batteries and a Fox D1, 1800w inverter with remote control and all
plumbed into the electrics, so just like being onsite.
 
We went back to Cambrils, Costa Daurada, just to satisfy
ourselves,
we went to a few rescue places, but no evail. Barcelona rescue was
at
the top of a hill, had to turn round to come down, front wheels
were
on the edge of a 200' drop, phew!
 
We are now around the Santa Pola area now, at the Carabassi
beaches, also by the Marina in the main town of Santa Pola.
 
Hope Karen and Ted get's the batteries sorted out soon.
 
Thanks to all for their help and support.
 
Jane and MIke.
 
Colomane.
 
Have a good year to all.

new ferry services

James Cheney <james.cheney@...>
 

Our local news in Kent is reporting on a proposed extension of the LD lines service:

"A new Dover to Boulogne ferry service may start as early as February.Operator LD Lines, which is starting up a Dover to Dieppe service next month, says it may use the facilities used by Speedferries before they went bust.The Dover to Boulgne operator went under in the autumn.LD Lines hopes to have two round trips a day by next month, and four a day by July."

Certainly, there's no harm in reminding people about the ways their internet usage is tracked.

Personally, I don't have a big problem with targeted advertising, much of the web relies on advertising revenue and I'd rather see ads that have some relevance to my interests than random ones that are of no interest at all.

I run a couple of websites that are entirely funded by advertising - if it wasn't for the revenue from the context relevant ads they wouldn't exist.

If you belong to ANY Yahoo Groups - be aware that Yahoo is now
using "Web Beacons" to track every Yahoo Group user. It's similar
to
cookies, but allows Yahoo to record every website and every group
you
visit, even when you're not connected to Yahoo.

Look at their updated privacy statement at
http://info.yahoo.com/privacy/us/yahoo/details.htmlAbout half-way
down the page, in the section on cookies, you will see a link
that
says WEB BEACONS.Click on the phrase "Web Beacons." On the page
that
opens, on the left find a box entitled "Opt-Out.". In that
section
find "opt-out of interest-matched advertising" link that will let
you "opt-out" of their snooping. Click it and then click the opt-
out
button on the next page.Note that Yahoo's invasion of your
privacy -
and your ability to opt-out of it - is not user-specific. It is
MACHINE specific. That means you will have to opt-out on every
computer (and browser) you use. Please forward this to your other
groups. You might complain, too, but I'm not sure if anyone is
listening. I remember when they signed al lusers up to get spam
and
we had to opt out of that a few years ago.

Please send this to anyone or any group you would like.

This is a fairly common technique that is not specific to Yahoo,
many
advertising services use similar practices to track users. In fact
Yahoo
have been using it since 2005 (the date of the article referred to)
and
I seem to remember we've had a discussion about it previously.

We use Av. Ronsard in the centre of the town. There is normally water available from a standpipe, unless it's frozen, and one of the public toilets is marked for cassette emptying. There's no official grey water disposal but most use the road drain, not a problem in the winter but can get smelly in the summer I understand!

Re: [MH-list] Theft update

Mike thank you for your update, I am at least glad the insurance aspect is
sorted, can you claim for the dogs themselves....(not having any pets I do
not know if you insure them for theft!)

Well enjoy your delayed holiday and I trust you will not encounter a similar
situation and the best of luck with your new motorhome.

Happy New Year, and travel safely

Re: Skillet wanted

toboots1 <derek_sims@...>
 

silly question probably - but does anyone here have a double skillet
they want to sell? Everyone seems to hang on to them forever. Remoska
was hopeless when hooked up.

We are just back from our second trip this year to Portugal - we had
a great time but oooh so many vans in the Algarve. We like it further
up in the hills.
Gill

I believe you may still be able to buy a new double skillet from D & F
Promotions, the sole suppliers, who usually have a stand at the major
exhibitions. They don't have a website but their telephone number is
01953 789175. It's in Norfolk.

We found the Remoska very good but we haven't spent much time on
hookups so it was of limited use in the 'van. Tish used it a lot at
home but the reliability was very poor. We had three free replacements
from Lakeland after which we gave up and opted for a refund.

When you say there were so many 'vans in the Algarve, did that mean it
was difficult to free camp? Were the sites full up too? We were
planning on heading for Portugal later this month and hoping to do a
mixture of the two.
