This is not a Dog Blog

However just had to tell you about Princess, Tramp found a new home and a new name, shes tinker now and it really suits her that name. Yesterday the delightful Princess came to stay. Found at Las Balcones she has an injured pad on her front paw and is under weight but none the less has a lovely temperament. A long haired German shepherd she will not be here long as these breed are very popular.

Smash and grab

Central Torrevieja, broad daylight - last week passers by stood and watched as a team of three men broke into a car and stole the stereo system and cds, two of them stationed themselves to look out for the police while one smashed the quarter window opened the door and robbed the car unchallenged, they then sped off on bicycles. they were described as stockily built. It makes you ask yourself, what would you do if you were witnessing such an incident.
One tip --- hide your cd´s and take the panel off the front of the stereo system when not in use.

Whats with the electricity bills

I am hearing complaints about electricity bills from around the region,it appears that the bills are now being charged monthly but the meters read every two months this has resulted in the estimated month being low and the "read" month being a high bill, on top of this an excess surcharge will be charged for higher usage, also electricity prices have also risen in general.
We have not recieved a bill since Mid December so wait with bated breath for it to arrive.

The Royal Thai closed

The Royal Thai Gardens restaurant, which has been closed since Christmas time, has now got a banner on the wall which says Due to unforeseen circumstances they will be closed untill 1st April, i cant imagine its for renovations as they did a lot of work before they opened in May 2008.

Torrevieja skyscrapers

I have just read that the Torrevieja town hall have given the go ahead for a "free building plan" where up to 20 towerblocks with a maximum 28 storeys are scheduled to be built in the Los Locos, Los Naufragos, El Acequion and La Mata seafront areas. The plan has to go to regional government for final approval.
Being as most building work round here appears to have ground to a halt, i cannot see any projects like this starting in the near future!

Angel leaves, Tramp arrives

Well, Angel very quickly has found a new home she has gone to live in the Villa Martin area. So very soon afterwards we have another foster dog this one is a little boy half the size of Angel and about 8 months old, the name given to him is "Tramp"
he loves to play with his ball, and after some encouragement walks well on a lead. although i am pretty sure he would like to spend most of his time curled up on somebodys knee. He was found wandering in the Jacarilla area. Anyone looking for a little companion you know where he is.

Formentera roadworks

The sides of the road over the bridge to Benijofar from Formentera are being excavated, it looks like new pipes are being laid, so it is lethal trying to walk as no pathway has been left for pedestrians, hopefully after they have done the work a proper path will be created so that there will be easier walking between Formentera, the new centro commercial ( when its finished) and Benijofar.
Its also just been announced a budget of €622,000 is going to be sent on improving the CV906 road which runs through the centre of Formentera del Segura, this will include street lighting and pavements.
