The article here on the La Voz de Almería site has details of the requirement for a bigger plot of land to build the "Sports City" in Almería.

The right to use a plot of land was granted to UD Almería in 2014. However the new owners have decided that the plot is too small for what they want to build.

The article here on the Sur in English site has the details.

Jacqui and I have decided that we will wait until we have been vaccinated fully with maximum efficacy before we start the process. As I think it involves trips to offices in Almería. Hopefully we will have our TIE cards before the autumn.

Years ago Jacqui and I visited the Los Millares site in the province. We had a very enjoyable time.

If you have not been there I think it is worth a visit sometime. Once we are in a safer environment.

The article here on the La Voz de Almería site describes some work that has been done there recently.

This is a refreshed story to test Hootsuite as a new auto feed to Facebook for a second time (first one deleted). It should allow me 5 free automatic posts a day. Fingers crossed I can get it working.

At the moment I have two feeds switched on. dlvrit and Hootsuite. If Hootsuite eventually posts this story I will switch off the dlvrit feed.

11:05 local time - just been correcting the rss feed configuration and the Facebook page update rate. So hopefully this story will be seen on Facebook reasonably soon.


For the last week I have been filing articles to the blog from the Poniente Hospital. For the first few days from my bed. After that from a mini-office I set up in the tiny space by the bed. From the vistors chair. Using the food serving tray and storage unit as a desk.

This afternoon I am to be discharged.

I will not go in to details of why I was in the hospital. Suffice to say that the issue is being managed by medication.

I would like to express my thanks to all the staff at the hospital. The care that I have received has been magnificent.

I saw this a few days ago then forgot to publish it....

See the article here on the La Voz de Almería for details of a new spaghetti western series being filmed in the province of Almería. The Spanish article also includes some nice photos. So it is worth a look.

Just a warning that Thursday and Friday are bank holidays here.

Friday is a bank holiday in the whole of Spain.

Most autonomous regions in Spain have a bank holiday on the Thursday as well. All except two if the internet is to be believed.

A limited number of autonomous regions also have Easter Monday as a bank holiday. This is not the case in Andalucía.

In the last 1-2 weeks Amazon has started to deliver to Almerimar using their own couriers. Rather than third party companies.

Today, for the first time, they scheduled a delivery for me for a Sunday. Also, for the first time, they provided a map service so you could track where the courier was located in town. Plus they including a statement of how many stops they were away.

They ended up being 1 stop away for more than 30 minutes.

So that will teach me never to stand outside the apartment block waiting for a courier to deliver. Without them phoning me first.
