Went for my siesta this afternoon after going out for lunch with a little booze, lovely Spanish neighbors had other idea though and played their very happy music oh so loudly. Gone very quite so I expect they have gone for their siesta now.

that's what I thought, but they give me lots of lovely fruit in the summer so I think I can forgive them a little music, especially as they have a teenage son who is very well behaved and quite, things could be a lot worse.

Generous to a fault. Is the son good to look at too.

He's getting there, still a bit young - about 14/15 I would say. So why do you ask, want me to give you a ring when he has reached a nice ripe age....

No just thinking of you and what you can see to make the noise worth while.

I'm fairskinned also. After getting badly burnt in Australia, I tend to go only out in the the sun about 4.30 onwards. I used to jetski also at this time up until 8 and never got burnt, but got a good sun tan.

The best thing I found if I got badly burnt is pure alore (sp) vera, it has to be 99% plus, and found it is the only thing that works. I got burnt a few years back and then skinned myself jetskiing where the skin was then raw. I put a big dollop on when I went to bed, and the next day I was back out there again. Found no other cream works as well. Use it also on oven burns, cutting my finger in the kitchen or gardening, stops the bleeding and takes out the sting. Only thing I would mug someone for it I was sunburnt.

Shouldn't moan really, they are usually very quite as are all my neighbors, the music only seemed loud because our bedroom is just the other side off of the wall where they were sitting.

Yes I agree. My son is very pale and has had a few near misses. The Aloe Vera is brilliant stuff. I use it too when I am clumsy with the iron. Has to be the stuff from the health shop though - like you say 99%.
