Dog Saga... Some relief!

So those of you avidly waiting for the next update about my long running dog saga will be pleased to know I have some good news!

Their owner has bought another house in our street, and moved the dogs up there!  That deserves another exclamation mark!

So, how bizarre.

- She says she "doesn't have a lot of money to put a nice wall in" - yet is capable of buying another house in cash - I know this because it was auction sale, and you have to deposit 90% of the cash before they let you bid here in Andorra.

- Her new immediate neighbours are a fiesty french-woman, and a vet.  Both of whom will now, in turn, be highly unimpressed with the dogs antics when she is out of the house.  The vet has been trying to sell his house for many year now.... that's even less likely to happen now.

- I doubt she bought the additional house so I, and the other neighbours this end of the road, could get some peace; but it does make me wonder if she's actually not selfish - just a bit dim - as the new neighbours will complain too.

- I used to yell at the dogs if they barked and startled me.  "F**K OFF".  I wonder if she heard that and cares so much for the damn mutts she bought a new place.

I said to one of the other (now in some peace neighbours) that this story is not over yet - but at least we can enjoy our out-doors for a little while now.

How do you fix a roll of aluminium foil once it's started spiralling?

I had this problem.

Seen a post on Reddit.  Old one.

That is a shame.  As I now have a better answer than any of the posts.

Get a pair of tweezers and scrape down from the part of the foil roll that is "stuck".  

Don't matter if it digs down into the layer beneath.  Try to maintain even digging across the roll.

Worked a treat!

Spanish verbs

Damn Spanish verbs can be frustrating.  I been trying for 13 years, and still get confused.  Must be the old brain.

I found a great "Cheat Sheet" (for fun try getting a Spanish person to say that :)) on Dummies.com but it a bit long so I cut it down a bit to just the most useful verb endings.

The cheat sheet is only good for regular verbs, and the most important/often used ones are irregular.

So last intercambio I worked with my friend to translate some typical sentences.

Here we are:


My mother was here until today,

Mi madre ha estado aqui hasta hoy,

and she will probably be back in April.

y ella a lo mejor volvera en Abril

We all had a nice time.

Nos lo pasamos bien.

Tanya & Isabel went to Barcelona on Sunday for appointments Isabel had yesterday and today.

Tanya y Isabel fueron a Barcelona dominigo para hacer encargos Isabel tenia ayer y hoy.

They are coming back now and are expected to be at home when Henry and I get there.

Ellos estan volviendo ahora mismo y se espera qu…

I've had a idea for Boris.

This is what he should do.

He should go to Brussels and demand:

1) End of EU commissioner/president appointments.  These should be directly elected by the Members States populations.. think "US President"-style elections.
2) Move the European Court of Justice or the European Central Bank to somewhere in the UK (not London)
3) End the monthly move of the European Parliament to Strasbourg.
4) Probably a few other things he can come up with...

THEN

Come back to the UK and offer this new deal (and Remain) or full out (with all the implications like loss of NI and subsequently Scotland) to the people in a new referendum.
