Madrid taxi drivers upset at proposed new regulations

September 30, 2009 at 16:02 (News) (, , , , )

Users will not have to take the first taxi in the rank in Madrid anymore. The new regulation being drawn up in the Madrid City Hall, will allow passengers to choose the taxi they want to get into, as opposed to currently being obliged to take the first one in the rank queue. Of course there are always exceptions, and these will be at at airports, and at train and bus stations.
To add insult to injury, the new rules also oblige taxi drivers to replace their vehicles at least every eight years.

Castillo Sohail in Fuengirola

September 19, 2009 at 19:53 (fuengirola) (, , , , , )

For the first time today I went to visit the castle in Fuengirola, locally called Castillo Sohail. I was quite impressed. It’s got the definite feeling of a fort. Not like those namby pamby palaces and castles you find in England and France. But an actual, no holds bar fort! Man the walls and take on all on comers!

Awkward Family photos

September 19, 2009 at 09:55 (Web) (, , , )

I’m sure many of you have been through gone through that family torture, known as the family portrait at some point in you’re life. We’ve all had to deal with an overly stressed out parent or partner who through a range of physiological and psychological torment has knuckled you under their will to get you to wear the clothes they’ve picked out or having the hairstyle they have ever so kindly requested.

With all the recent activity my Fuengirola blog has been getting, i thought a design change was need. Having to come onto this blog so often has made me realise how horrible the colour scheme was. Why no-one send anything I don’t know.

So I have gone for this pretty design by http://beccary.com/.
If you don’t like it complain to them or keep on moaning and I might change it again.

In a recent article about shit websites, a comment was made where one of posters thought I was being ‘trolly’. Now don’t get me wrong I was enjoying the lively debate and I want it to continue, but does that really make me a troll?

Intelligent design

September 17, 2009 at 13:36 (Web) (, , , , )

Was Just having a chat (they like to refer to them as debates!) about evolution. Surprise, surprise, they did not believe in evolution because they’re religion told them we were all created by a giant sphincter, or some such nonsense. As always someone jumped in with the great argument about Intelligent design. For those that don’t know intelligent design is that argument: yes evolution is true, but guided by the Great sphincter.
