    I was thinking of organising a pub meeting for people who want to have a chat about the Spanish property or for that matter the property market in the UK, Ireland, France, Italy, Portugal, Bulgaria, Turkey or America. It will be informal and on the same lines as the hpc pub meets of the past and I promise this time not to threaten to bring my imaginary AK47 semi-automatic rifle to the venue in case you are worried. I live in London and know some interesting establishments in the notorious Shoreditch triangle that we can go to or it can be just a low key event in a very ordinary pub of your choice. You will pay for your own drinks, because I am a bit tight, and it is intended to be a light-hearted not-too-serious night out where we can discuss the Spanish property market and economic issues and it is a chance to see some of the contributers on this forum in person. I will not be charging anyone for my advice and it will be strictly free of charge. If you think that this is a good or a bad idea please let me know.

    No thanks !!!!!!!! We get enough of your cut a paste gloom. Further you must feel that you are some kind of a Guru to even expect people to pay for your advise.

    I have been to Spain a few times before so I do think that it qualifies me to have some say on the subject. I am sorry that you are not interested in coming along. All I was just doing was emphasizing that I am not expecting any payment for my advice. I am not claiming to be a professional investor or anything like it, I am just a rather well-informed guy who thinks that my opinions may be of interest.

    Just to give a bit of background as to who I am. I retired towards the end of 2001 and I used to be an IT consultant, worked as a freelance IT contractor for several years but when the government introduced IR35 legislation affecting single person companies I decided to give it up and retire. I haven’t worked since. I did a bit of travelling, travelled around Western Europe just to see interesting places that I could emigrate to but was completely caught out by the lunatic and insane housing booms that affected many mediterranean countries which joined the Euro in 2002. I live in London with my mum. I have a brother who lives elsewhere. My father died five years ago. I spend most of my time just trying to stay alive and live an extremely frugal and austere lifestyle on tinned pineapple chunks and the occasional sausage meat to save money and I go to the sauna about once or twice a month to look after my skin complexion. I am terrified that my looks may be fading as I once thought that I was the World’s most attractive man. I have seen how singers like Neil Tennant of the Pet Shop boys and George Michael of Wham and actors like Ian McKellen used to be terrifically good looking guys when they were younger but now they look old and terrible. To think that I will be sixty years of age in ten years time horrifies me. I am unattached since the best way to save money is not to have girl friends. I did go through a stage where I was going to lap dancing clubs quite regularly and believe me it nearly ended up becoming an addiction and an expensive one at that but I managed to kick that habit after I realised that I was the one who was being exploited rather than the dancers. Another nasty habit I picked up was a liking for drinking draught Guinness but I managed to kick that habit as well. I did for a while have an obsession with Marilyn Monroe but that has faded abit when I discovered that she was really just an empty vessel into which men pour their emotional longings.

    Wow, what a super lifestyle, you certainly know how to live Bruno, I’ve not heard of pineapple chunks and sausage meat before, is this the latest nouvelle cuisine?

    To be able to retire as a teenager means you have saved a lot of money too, and having a doting mother to breast feed you still is fantastic. Have you decided to wear long trousers yet, or better still, lederhosen? I’m curious to know whether drinking Guinness gave you severe bouts of flatulence which can have benefits, if so you should have collected this in a bottle and used it for cooking with and possibly gas lighting to supplement your lavish lifestyle.

    Will you become a pop singer yourself despite your fading looks, or a pro golfer playing at Valderama etc?

    Your knowledge of the World’s property market though simply knows no bounds, keep posting because it helps me to make my investment decisions.

    Off now to cook up some pineapple chunks and sausage meat πŸ˜†

    I just eat the pineapple chunks straight from the tin by pouring them into a bowl and eating them without any need for cooking. The sausages are a bit of a problem because I need to use gas to cook those but three minutes cooking on one side, turn them around and three minutes cooking on the other side and they are done and ready for consumption. I don’t like cooking so much because of the steep rise in the price of gas so I am trying to stick to eating food that doesn’t require cooking. I have also cut back on how often I wash because of the steep rise in gas prices but I don’t want people to start having a go at me for having personal hygiene problems because I am desperately trying to economise on my gas consumption in order to keep my quarterly gas bill down.

    Are the sausages beef or pork ??? It seems you may not eat pork !!! With all the saving & if you add the money you spent on table dancing you could have bought a property in Spain for more than €20k and lived of chrizo & don pepe wine..

    Some of the threads I started in the “spanish property market” section have been moved to “all other subjects” section. I had mistakenly thought that they got deleted.

    It turns out that Ricky Martin is gay just like the others I mentioned. Why is it that all the good looking guys turn out to be gay? I am a good looking guy and I am straight! I am not going to say anything about Tom Cruise or John Travolta.

    Maybe they follow a strict diet of pineapple chunks with occasional sausage meat as well?

    I am not Jewish or Muslim so I don’t have a problem consuming pork or bacon. Love a bacon sandwich. The only thing better than a bacon sandwich is a nice juicy steak. I haven’t had one of those for years. Oh No! I tell a lie. I did eat some spare ribs that I found in a skip somewhere a couple of weeks ago.
