Re: help our Lab pup has escaped!

If you are only out for a short period of time I would keep him inside, he should be able to go 4 or 5 hours no problem if he has done his business. Or you could keep him outside but in a dog run with higher sides.

Re: chicken pop holes open or closed?

Used to leave ours open but we lost one to Mr Fox so it is now closed. They get out in the morning when we are ready which may be 6am or 9am.

Re: Non-electric Kettle

Have you thought about the Tefal Quick Cup? It only boils the water you need and is very energy efficient and quick.

Re: Starting a new, simple life in Spain

Sounds like a great adventure, I would invest in a little second hand moped for getting around. How do you plan to make a living in Spain?
