Questions And Answers - ask or answer any questions about Tenerife

Questions and Answers. From time to time, I get someone contacting me, via "Feedback", asking me a specific question about Tenerife. I do my best to answer it, of course, but sometimes I simply don't know, or can't find out, the information they require.

I also regularly look on "Yahoo Answers" for questions about Tenerife and try to respond to as many as I can. All at once, I had a brainwave! Why not set up a page on my own site, just like "Yahoo Answers", but specifically about Tenerife?

So, here's the deal: if you're casually browsing through my site (enjoying the experience, hopefully) and you want some extra bit of information that I've (incredibly) not included, just click through to this page and ask for it!

The question will initially come to me and I'll attempt to answer it, but it will then appear as its own page on this site, with an opportunity for any other browser to also offer an answer. (This will be especially useful if the unlikely event ever cropped up that I didn't know the answer.)

Why not try this idea:

Please note

I'm writing this in October 2015 and, for the past few months, I've been occasionally receiving comments to various questions that have no relevance to them, but serve merely as a vehicle for the poster (usually anonymous) to place a link to their business. This amounts to free advertising, so all such comments have been deleted. Should anyone wish to advertise on this site, please contact me via the "Advertising" page and I'll be happy to discuss terms.
