  1. Re: Bringing up kids in Tenerife. Opportunity/Sheltered or a Good start in life?

    How sad! The homeschooled children that I know in England are all well-adjusted, happy, capable kids.
  2. Re: Bringing up kids in Tenerife. Opportunity/Sheltered or a Good start in life?

    Home schooling is great because the children get so much more social interaction. Being sat in rows in a classroom is not social interaction.

    There are great opportunities for those who grow up in...

    Re: Are you a geek

    I got all eight of those questions right! I'm assuming that you're looking for "1.0" as the answer to question 3, although in some countries I think it was not released until 1.02.

    Re: Attack on my computer

    Ideally you don't even use Internet Explorer. Chrome and Firefox have fewer security vulnerabilities.
  7. Other Re: I want to get into self-sufficient farming in Tenerife

    To address the original question, Tenerife must be one of the hardest countries to be a self-sufficient farmer. The soil is fertile but it's hard as hell to work it, and (depending where you are)...
  8. Re: Anyone recommend a weekend break in north Tenerife?

    As a hotel, La Quinta Park suites is great, and there is a wide range of accommodation to choose from ranging from rooms to 2-bed apartments to "bungalows".

    But it's a long way from anywhere else....

    Long Term Rental Re: Los Abrigos

    Beautiful plaza at the far end of town too, with the rotating sculptures. And the beautiful natural rock pools a mile east of town. I haven't ever been there at night though.

    Re: The meridian isle of El Hierro.

    When the volcano was steaming away last year, it's a pity the government said "stay away". Instead, they should have said "why not come here to see all the funny vulcanologists".

    Re: The Meridian Isle of El Hierro.

    Nice photos, but do the island's inhabitants really want more tourists? I thought they might quite appreciate living on the island least spoiled by mass tourism.
  12. Re: Locals please help...I need somewhere to stay

    This is probably not the solution you are seeking, but possibly your original hotel has a wheelchair-friendly toilet elsewhere on the complex (e.g. in the lobby) which you could use. Not ideal, I...
  13. Cycling Re: Any good OFF road cycling with kids?

    In the pine forests there are LOTS of dirt roads that run mostly horizontally rather than up/down the slope. The best of these are in the north, in the area roughly from Santiago del Teide to Icod el...

    Slodgedad, I suppose one can abbreviate "a set of rules is a set of rules" to "rules is rules" and it works gramatically.
