  1. Just checked her out on Wikipedia, quite a lady wasn't she!
  2. Personal use only now, there are things you just can't have enough off - power tools is one of those things, along with wheelbarrows, buckets and bags of compost!!
  3. I bought one of those saws from Lidl a few months ago. Cost 39.99€ - used it for pruning my olive trees. battery life excellent, blade quality excellent. Lidl have never had any replacement blades though but got some from Brico in Ostuni and as you say Peter the standard Bosch blades fit. Agree on Eurospin bread - most of it is awful BUT their ciabatta rolls are good.
  4. Just bought "DAMAGED" by Dan Scottow, a psychological thriller - not my usual choice of book, not read a fiction book since Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown about 12 years ago ....... BUT since Dan Scottow is my nephew and this is his first book I will give it a try. Currently reading "Gone Fishing" by Mortimer and Whitehouse, relates to their popular TV series of the same name.

    I've just checked my can and the red tube fits OK as well. Perhaps you have an oversized tube or an undersize nozzle?
  6. there is Bentley with a British flag on the back I see sometimes Perhaps it's Dame Helen Mirren, she has a place in your neck of the woods.
  7. Unfortunately active Puglia Possonians (?) are a bit thin on the ground now. Only a few of the regular site visitors seem to contribute. Quite a few of the original members from 10 to 15 years ago have now moved on. However occasionally some useful information can and does get passed on so it's always worth a try if you need any advice or info. Important to be specific about your location, each town is really a self contained entity so for example Ostuni based builders and tradesmen tend to only operate more or less in their immediate vicinity.
  8. Hi, I saw the programme and the photos you posted previously. Looks like you had a good team doing the renovations. Hope everything is still looking good.
  9. Change of subject from Beans to CUSTARD. Eurospin do a dessert called Crema alla Vaniglia, sold in packs of 4 for 99c (also a chocolate one as well). Had it with Christmas pudding and mince pies, 2 minutes in microwave - perfect. It is no different to the tins of Ambrosia custard I usually get from British Corner Shop.
  10. No intention of returning to UK, nothing there has improved since we left 15 years ago. Love Europe but NOT the EU.
  11. Could have been arranged before Christmas but not now ..... sorry.
  12. Does this count as one of the 5-a-day recommended intake of vegetables ? http://www.ansa.it/english/news/2019/12/27/marijuana-home-growing-ok-says-top-court_229e5b31-e781-4084-ad98-a379f77e4929.html

    I went to a bullfight in Spain a long time ago with my family when I was about 15 ......we only stayed about 5 minutes and left in disgust. Regarding Ringo ..... I loved the remark John Lennon made when asked if he thought Ringo was the best drummer in Liverpool ..... "He's not even the best drummer in the Beatles!"
  14. Yes, we got some of those as well, long shelf life so put a few packs in the fridge.
  15. Eurospin in Ostuni has KIPPERS, never seen them here before and knowing Eurospin they will probably never stock them again! Just had them for lunch ...... perfect.
