Form 210 - Non Resident's tax

If you are a non-resident but own a property in Spain you will need to
complete Form 210 and pay the Non-Resident's Tax before the end of the year.
It is not an optional tax and is not to be confused with the IBI tax which
you should have paid by September. If you jointly own the property, you will
need to fill in two forms. Many people have had difficulty as Form 210 has
to be filled in online then printed off and taken to a bank for payment. For
a small fee we can help. Please contact us at :

Capistrano Film Forum

The Capistrano Film Forum is open to all. All films are shown in their
original languages and are shown on a large screen in the Capistrano Social
Salon in El Capistrano Village, starting promptly at 6 PM. Wine (or
alternate beverages on request) and "nibbles" are served.
The next film is:

Friday Nov. 30th 6.00 PM WITNESS FOR THE PROSECUTION (1957)
CRIME DRAMA (US-116 min.) - Directed by Billy Wilder from the play by Agatha
Christie -
It's Britain, 1953. Upon his return to work following a heart attack,
irrepressible barrister Sir Wilfrid Robarts (Charles Laughton), known as a
barrister for the hopeless, takes on a murder case, much to the exasperation
of his medical team, led by his overly regulated private nurse, Miss
Plimsoll (Elsa Lanchester), who tries her hardest to ensure that he not
return to his hard living ways - including excessive cigar smoking and
drinking - while he takes his medication and gets his much needed rest. That
case is defending American war veteran Leonard Vole (Tyrone Power), a poor,
out of work, struggling inventor who is accused of murdering his fifty-six
year old lonely and wealthy widowed acquaintance, Emily French (Norma
Varden). The initial evidence is circumstantial but points to Leonard as the
murderer. Despite being happily married to East German former beer hall
performer Christine Vole (Marlene Dietrich), he fostered that friendship
with Mrs. French in the hopes that she would finance one of his many
inventions to the tune of a few hundred pounds. Black & White. In English.

To all our friends and acquaintances:

It has come into our attention that there is between forty and fifty families that they have problems with providing their families with food, due to the financial situation in which we encounter here in Spain.

And so, we thought that as foreigners that live here and been welcome and accepted by the community we could give those with a great need a Christmas present of a food basket.

We have contacted Caritas and the Priest and they are willing to work with us and give us the name of the families so that we can make the basket in accordance with the necessities of the family. A family of four with small children will not receive the same as a single person.

If you would like to contribute, it would be greatly appreciated, and there are two ways you could do it. Also, most of us, have different friends, and so if, you could contact your friends and acquaintances, it would be nice, because the more people that contributes the more we can do and the nicer it would be for the people in need that we are trying to help.

Endesa letter

We have all received a letter from Endesa. This explains that they have had
to add back charges to our bills as a result of a change in the law. They
have kindly split the extra charge we have to pay into two equal parts, so
that explains the increase in our bills until December 2012. The bills will
revert back to normal (i.e. the amount we have used and the usual tariff. ).

New contadors

Have you had a new contador yet? Well, take care what your 'potencia
contradador' is!
Endesa fixed our new meter last week. One afternoon this week I decided to
run the washing machine, then while it was running I decided to make a cake
and put the oven on. While it was heating up I thought I'd have a cup of
tea, so put the kettle on. Oh yes, the dishwasher was just completing its
Suddenly everything went off! I looked at our fuse box by the front door.
It looked perfectly normal so I thought it must be one of the plugs had
Nothing worked. My husband went out to the fuse box by the gate. There was
a little red light that he said usually flashed.
In the end, it got later and later until eventually we found an electrician
to come out to see what had happened. He had to come from Velez Malaga and
charged us 40€. Well worth it to us!! He discovered a little knob that he
pushed on the top of the new fuse box and hey presto! All the lights came
back on and we were able to have our television again.
It seems that our potencia was only 3.45 kw. The new meter limits our
potencia to just that.
It will cost us 120€ to have it increased and 4€ a 'periodo de facturacion'.
So if your electricity suddenly goes off, try pressing the button on the top
of your contador before you call out an electrician.

2 Lovely Cats Desperate for a New Home with Land to Play

I have two cats both neutered and about 5/6 years old we have had to move
into an apartment and thought they would be ok but as they are used to the
Campo they are going a bit stir crazy I am desperate to find them a loving
home they are great ratters which is why we got them in the first place as
we lived in amongst a load of fruit trees, they are really lovable but also
quite independent, house trained and do not destroy anything and also used
to dogs, I really don´t want to let them go but I think it is unfair of me
to keep them. I know there are a lot of strays who need homes but I have to
try and find them a nice place to go before they get too bored, please
contact me on lorraineearl at hotmail dot com.
