Default Just want to say HELLO

Hi everybody,

we live at the Spanish Costa Blanca and joined this forum today. Perhaps we're aliens here because origin German+Swiss, but we hope that we don't get thrown out quickly.

For the moment to all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Hi there and welcome to the forum.

Your post was moderated as it contained a url. New posters have their first post moderated if this is the case.

Not sure how or why but the smilies you used showed up as URL not as the icon.

Anyway, I have fixed that for you so your post is now visible.

All nationalities are welcome here so no reason why you should be thrown out. As long as you abide by the site rules of course.

Enjoy B.E.

Hi and welcome to the forum. I'm sure you'll be most welcome in the Spain section of this forum. You'll find there's actually quite a lot of non-Brits on this site so don't feel too alien

Think you should find the Spain section OK but, any problems, just shout.

Hi Sherlock,

i didn't think seriously getting thrown out. That's why I simply pulled a smiling icon from the right window into my text. Didn't know that I cause a problem.... Sorry!
About aliens: once we came down here, expecting to live in Spain under Spaniards, speaking Spanish. But we meanwhile realize we're nearly living on British territory with Brits as the main foreigners group at the Costa Blanca, with British neighbors, social tennis groups, radio, fish and chips and more (which is absolutely no problem for us...) Means: we don't feel like aliens !
By the way: we couldn't get used to baked beans in a heavy English breakfast. But thanks for the welcome to bakedbean and Sherlock .

I'm sure it isn't the case with the OP, but that trick is a spammers favourite. Still not clever enough to get found the BE censors though!

No, me neither. It's the kind of breakfast you want maybe twice a year.

I see you've found the Spain section OK.... that's great....happy posting
