Topic: Are FON/FONERO wifi hubs common in Bulgaria?
Replies: 3

We live in a village and the local bar has wifi, which I believe is broadcast to houses some distance away. I also believe that this is true of a number of villages in BG. I think the speeds may be a bit slow, but adequate for email and the like. I think also that the service may not be too consiste...

M_W All things are possible and in the case of BG there are so few Brits that your hypothosis may be right, but in other EU countries there are many expats and forging agreements to allow us to stay would be the cheapest way out for any government. What is good for one country will probably have to ...

With the EU in place or not trade will still need to go on. Most likely the current spat is purely to have in place someone to blame when things go wrong with the Euro. I think it unlikely that the eurozone will succeed, but I doubt life will change that much with regard to living in a foreign count...

Marymo.
Your chances are not that good, but as with all things to do with the weather it's a game of wait and see.

M_W, I do not know the type of bottle you are describing but all LPG gas comes at far too high a pressure to work on any appliance, so there must be a regulator of some sort in the system. Some of the basic models have the regulator in the brass screw down tap which shuts the gas off. I think the on...

When the final call is made we all need each other if we are going to continue to expand our economies. However I think a united Europe will never succeed without the use of military force. The National characteristics from country to country are just too diverse for any long term co-operative union...

It may be that you have a gum problem rather than a tooth one. Try brushing with Arthrodont toothpaste and using a mouthwash with the same name. Both are available in the bigger chemists here or can easily be ordered anywhere.

M_W. Any bridge across the DPC is a potential trouble spot. Tanking the structural wall behind the cladding should solve any likely problems. A mortar fillet on the top of the cladding would help to make sure water running down the wall would be deflected to the outside of the cladding. I'm not sure...

It all sounds too good to be true, but when you work out what you could have made with the capital cost of such an installation, if you had invested it in the money markets it does not sound so good. Even given the current state of the money markets. Then of course you have to live in the same house...
