Hi CA, When we lived on Tenerife, there were quite a few presas canarios about but I can't say that I've seen any on Lanzarote so far, in the 10 months that we've lived here. It's great living here though.... much quieter than Tenerife. I suppose that it's like living at the end of the world. Not much goes on, there's lots of sun and peace and quiet. Just the place to move to if you want to liv

Hi All, This is such a load of c**p! Next they'll be banning kitchen knives and scissors, just in case somebody totally irresponsible gets hold of them. People who play with any sort of weapon in the presence of children are just as likely to leave the electric garden shears or weedkiller around for them to get hold of. My ex-husband used to run a small company that produced hand-crafted air

Hi, Well my little list is made up of: England (place of birth), Wales, Scotland, France, mainland Spain, 2 of the Balearics, 7 of the Canary islands (currently living on Lanzarote), Portugal, Yugoslavia (as it was known then), Egypt, and most recently, Mexico. Margaret

Hi Joss, If you do a search on this very site, you will find dozens of discussions on Atlantis that have been held over the years. I just found 6,771 matches to the word 'Atlantis'. That should keep you busy for a while! Don't forget that the Canary Islands are also candidates for being Atlantis. Regards, Margaret

Hi Harry, Geoff and I asked for this about 3 years ago but there was some reason that it couldn't be done. It had something to do with reading the threads in either flat or threaded view. Threaded view has a 'go to top' button just above the reply to message box but flat view doesn't. I always read the threads flat view and have to scroll all the way back to the top. You'd have thought that i

Hi MJT, Snap again! I was also born in the Royal Victoria Hospital in Boscombe........ way back in July 1950. My family moved from there to North Wales when I was about 2 years old so I don't remember it at all. But it is a lovely part of England! Regards, Margaret

Hi Lee, If you eat the flax seeds instead of taking flaxseed oil, you'll get a double benefit as the seed husks are a great form of fibre and help the body get rid of its waste easily. For anyone who has ever suffered from constipation I can promise you that if you start taking a tablespoonful of organic flax seeds with your breakfast, you'll never suffer again. They're easy to swallow with so

Hi Deb, "People should be asking "WHAT IS SCARING OUR ATERIES?!" They know!... but it doesn't make any money for the BIG drug lords." In the current edition of my favourite magazine 'Nexus', there is a fascinating article on just this subject and why the already available remedy is being kept a secret from those who need it most.

Hi MJT, You were born in Bournemouth? Snap! Well actually, I was born in Boscombe which is next door but close anyway. Of course in the year that I was born, both Boscombe and Bournemouth were in Hampshire. Now they're part of Dorset, which I suppose is OK. I now live in the sunny Canary Islands (temperatures up to 43ÂșC today!) on the island of Lanzarote, after moving from Tenerife last Dec

Hi again MJT, "I am hopeless at putting this innate ability into practice! I am one of life's eternal bumblers, and my wife often tells people that I am not safe to be let out on my own!" I don't think that you should worry about not being able to put things into practice. I believe that many very intelligent people have the ideas but don't know what to do with them. One day maybe, y

Hi Steve, I think that your story is just verging on the sexist, don't you? I'm sure that there just are as many women who understand the basics of what is under the car bonnet as there are men who don't. We have been allowed to drive cars now for quite some time and some of us even put in our own petrol and know how to check the oil and tyres! Regards, Margaret

Hi Claude, Exactly! How should we define intelligence anyway? I always think that intelligence is innate and education is what we are force-fed during our most formative years. Our brains are like sponges and will absorb whatever is poured into them. It's only when we're able to examine what we have been taught and to make our own decision as to whether we really believe it or not. That's usi

Hi MJT, There are a lot of so-called 'IQ tests' being put on the web which are really quizzes and these include the type of general knowledge questions that you mention. A proper 'Mensa' IQ test that is done under controlled conditions and supervision has none of that type of general knowledge question. Much of the test consists of sections containing shapes and patterns and asks which shape wo

Hi Merc, It doesn't matter who dug the hole... the fact is that no self-respecting parent should let a 3 year old child out of their sight on the beach. I work as a resort manager on a holiday complex in Lanzarote and I know from experience that this sort of thing happens all the time. Last week our lifeguard came into the reception with a very small toddler. She had been wandering alone righ

Hi Gaia, I read about the sick house syndrome that was being caused by electromagnetic disturbances few years ago and also came across the same theory for houses that had water courses running deep underneath them. Apparently someone sleeping in a bed that was laying directly over a deep water course could be ill and not sleep well and then on moving the bed to another room or to a different pa

Hi Debra, The Cancer 'business' is an amazing eye-opener once you start looking into it. I used to visit the gynaecologist for a yearly checkup which often included a mammogram until I started reading up on the subject. I'll never go again! From now on, I'll just let nature take it's course and continue taking my daily vitamin supplements. Here are a couple of my favourite articles that hav

I agree, Nobody is obliged to read anything that they don't consider as suitable reading material. Since time began there has always been someone around trying to stop others doing something that they themselves don't approve of. History is littered with frightened 'little' people destroying somebody elses civilisation or burning their sacred books. The Spanish Inquisition murdered thousands of

Hi PR, >>They don't want to promote events or contests that could be exploiting women.<< When are men going to realise that it's not the women who are being exploited by the men - it's those silly men who are being exploited hilariously by the women!

Hi, Well here in the Canary Islands it is perfectly normal to be asked for your ID when using a credit card. This is not time consuming - it is normal. An ID card is a lot easier than a passport to carry around too. It takes about 3 seconds whilst the names are compared and is not in the least bit scary. What is it with this British obsession about not wanting ID cards? Your details are all o
