We had a lovely eight days away in the Dominican Republic, the Resort ( I would not describe it as a Hotel, as it is laid out in buildings over a large area) was up to scratch and more, contrary to many of the reviews we had read. We arrived home on Monday evening, andContinue reading “End of Yet Another Chapter”

I\’ve been taking it easy this week, Marcela\’s orders…I don\’t always listen, but I was happy to do very little this week. We have made the decision that the Nissan X-Trail is going to have to go, it has been a very costly experience, and we are still not happy with it, so when weContinue reading “Holidays!”
Time to Look for Another Car?
Yesterday morning, I was checking the levels in the Nissan X-Trail, when I found oil in the radiator, but no sign of water / refrigerant in the Oil, that put paid to Marcela going to work, which thanks to the Local Authorities had already been mucked up, more on that later. So the car endedContinue reading “Time to Look for Another Car?”
Car Saga Cont\’d
This morning we went to take the boys for a wash, cut and brush up, on the way back, I noticed we had black smoke, to cut a very long story short, it would appear that the problem was not with the injectors at all, but with the \’valve\’, I have no idea what valve,Continue reading “Car Saga Cont\’d”
It\’s been an expensive couple of weeks, I think my luck with cars has to change sometime before I leave this world, but there is no sign of it at the moment. The lad that sold us the X-Trail, was a damn good second hand car salesman, and the Company that did the independent inspectionContinue reading “Car Trouble!”
Bye Bye Baby!
Yesterday, I finally said good bye to my Montero with some sadness, yes over the last four years she has cost me some money, but considering she was 23 years old, I had developed an affection for her…don\’t tell Marcela! I went over to the shop at 9am, and met with the buyer and hisContinue reading “Bye Bye Baby!”
Tuesday, I had to be in Medellin for a 7am skin cancer appointment, yet again, I was hoping that I was about to be discharged, but the Dermatologist found that the mole he had been watching has grown, to the size, he can no longer remove it in his Clinic, I am going to haveContinue reading “\’New\’ Car”
Ups and Downs
It turned out to be a peaceful week-end, thank goodness, and both In-laws left with Marcela first thing yesterday morning. After they had left, I saw a man climbing the tree the cat had been in, he was armed with a pole and net, it turned out the cat was still there, he managed toContinue reading “Ups and Downs”
Firstly to update on the Logan, it was sold yesterday, less than we wanted for it, but still a good price, people over here don\’t like buying gas conversion vehicles. I was talking with the Gas Engineer last week, when I called in with a problem with the Montero system, he told me the reasonContinue reading “Smelly!”
Yesterday, Marcela received a call from a man interested in buying her Logan, he then went to have a look and a price was agreed, subject to an official inspection today. Marcela will go with the man, when she finishes work, into the City to have the inspection, if everything is OK, which it shouldContinue reading “Fingers Crossed!”
