Sadly just noticed that in all current topics mine is the only user name that crops up on all of them :roll: ...yeah, sad I know...nothing better to do :shock: ...lol :D
It seems that posting on various social ´´networking ´´sites such as FB and others that you have just had your brekkie and are now nipping to the shops before sitting down and having a coffee (wow...utterly riveting stuff...eh ?) now seems to take precedence over online discussion and advice forums...or is it just me :?: :wink: :( :cry: :|

I'm always lurking in the background to help if I can...but being a married dad from the Philippines it's difficult to keep up to speed....
Unfortunately not visited Lanza for about 3 years, takes 42 hrs to get there. :-(

Like many others I check the forum on a daily basis as I like to keep up to date with what is happening on the island.
Personal finances dictate that I must live in england but that does not prevent my heart living in lanzarote.

I think it's helpful too

And I agree that you get more useful info here that on FB - who cares what someone else is having for breakfast lol

I often read the topics even though I don't post that much myself

Question - has anyone got an alternative to a forum / FB that combines the two ??....

i always prefer forums for researching about holidays cars or anything in general -but it does sadly look like facebook has been the downfall of many forums
