What’s this about?
This is the Spanish website for Peter and Maureen Scargill. When in Spain we live in Galera in Andalusia (for clarify that is the English spelling - Mid-Spain they spell it Andalucia and pronounce it "And-a-loo-thee-a").

We've had a home in Spain for something like 9 years or more and now we're spending a lot more time here.

Find out more about this by reading through the blog entries, menu-accessible pages and archives if you're interested! Welcome to Peter and Maureen's Spanish website.

A Day of Swimming or a Bottle of Acid

Or not. By early afternoon I’d given up on the idea of our lot ringing me up for a conference call and I was just about ready to go to the pool when – they wanted a conference call!

Not weedsAnyway, WEEDS are a problem our way despite being in the nearest thing to a desert… we can’t get plants to grow but the weeds seem to manage and they’re pretty much immune to the weed killer I tried. So one of the neighbours suggested I try Aqua Fuerte. While at the Chinese junk shop I spotted a bottle for 43p – and as they were offering 30% off everything – I went for it. You won’t believe this if you’re reading this from the uk – but the ingredients – 22% hydrochloric acid. Sure enough it kills the weeds and 50% Hydrochloricalso has a good go at burning through the concrete – and it STINKS.

Imagine my surprise tonight when in Huescar at a local store – to find a very large bottle – for 75p – only THIS time the percentage of hydrochloric acid – 50% !!!!! This stuff would give “alien” a run for it’s money.

No more weeds for me! Can you imagine the pound store selling that!!
