Re: Pharmacy in Spain

There is a pharmacy in La Jonquera, it isn't large but has always had anything we needed in stock.It is in the back street that runs parallel with the route national. Other than that there are several larger ones in Figueras.

Re: Funeral advice please

My husband passed away last year. We chose a cremation and I didn't want flowers, although some we're delivered and brought back to the house. I asked for contributions at the cremation, One half was donated to cancer research and the other half to the alzeimers society.

Parking Figueras

The car park at the old station has been closed for about 2 years. Parking isn't easy there and if you intend leaving it overnight in a street nearby it's risky. I left my car at Vilafant for 10 days, returning last Thursday and it cost 90 euros.

I retreived my marmalade thanks to Martyn 94 suggesting re-boiling. I reboiled it for over an hour until I could see the obvious reduction The consistency is still a little runnier than I would have prefered but it can be spread.Thanks Martyn!
