dogs are all well and posed for their monthly pictures. Piglet was
hoping to get a bit of cushion to lie down on, but Panda would have
none of that. Cleo gave here most imperial look, while House looks

The kitchen units and work surface have now been finished, so now

We have managed to collect just over 5,000 kilo's of olives in the
last six weeks and it has all been processed at our cooperative
"Soldebre". Now it will be cold filtered to remove the

1/2 litre bottles and labelled up.
we have achieved an even lower acidity level than in previous years
(0.3% rather than the previous 0.4%), we are looking forward to

back to the UK early in the new year.
