Nice to see other forums suddenly find the link to Ultima Hora. Good to know that they regularly pop in to view what has been posted, even if it is just as Guests. We have no problem if you want to register and post guys! :)

Sorry, but I'm going to have a rant here. I know that members from the other forum log in to check up on copyright issues so this will be read.
The Daily Bulletin is the paper of choice who advertises with your forum. According to your rules, other "companies" from any walk which do not advertise with you are not usually allowed links and always deleted - hence a forum set up here to allow all links.
Then tell me - but I know you wont - why, when we then used Ultima Hora, a competitor of the Daily Bulletin, so by your rules should not be allowed on your forum - do we see links suddenly appear in your forum - and NOT deleted!!!???

Mixed rules.

I will probably delete my message later when I have calmed down, but I am pretty astounded! >:(

Amazing the effect of a bit of competition can have.

Missed this from Andrew on Sunday;  Own up, who's got it and when's the party?! ;)


MALLORCA TODAY - Sa Fortalessa sold to a Briton
It is the most expensive property in Spain. Sa Fortalessa in Puerto Pollensa, in fact a small castle, seven houses, its own forest and coves, has been sold by John Ogden to a fellow Briton whose name has not been revealed and for whom a Spanish company has been acting. The exact price has also not been revealed, but it had been marketed, by different firms, at 100 million euros and 120 million.

Apparently it's been sold for only 40 million. Bargain.

Curtesty of Andrew.


MALLORCA TODAY - Patrona party to go ahead
The threat to the night party of the first into the second of August during Pollensa's Patrona festivities has been lifted, but the party will be shortened and will end at 2.30am. The hope is that this will reduce costs and also limit any "botellón" street drinking party. Local town halls are to be asked to help in checking buses which leave for the party and to stop the bringing of alcohol.

Unquote.

Its good to see they are willing to compromise rather than just cut out completely.

The normal charge by an agent is 5% with many charging more - gosh someone has done well! What is it sales people say? - you are only as good as last weeks sales!!!! Well that will take some beating!!   ::)

Curtesy of Andrew

MALLORCA TODAY - Pollensa town hall wants Formentor hotel development
Pollensa town hall is in discussion with the regional tourism ministry to unblock permission for the iconic Hotel Formentor in Puerto Pollensa to be redeveloped and so permit the creation of at least an additional 100 places. A stumbling block to redevelopment has been compensation to landowners that might be affected.

MALLORCA TODAY - Chemists in Mallorca threaten not to open
Pharmacies in Mallorca, owed millions of euros by the regional government through the indebted public health authority, IB-Salut, are threatening to close on 29 July unless they are paid. Chemists would therefore open only for emergencies and on a "guardia" basis, i.e. those shops in a local area which maintain service in any event when others are shut. The duration of this closure has yet to be decided, while the chemists are also considering other measures, such as not accepting "electronic prescriptions" (which many do not like anyway).
