Not working here either.  Everything ghosts out when I press the button but then it hangs there.  I tried it with my debug console open and saw this error:

Yes to the ghosting out thingee.  :giggle:
 until I return to Tenerife! :toothygrin:

 The dates for the 2018 Los Cristianos carnival are now confirmed as 1-12 March, with Pirates, Corsairs & Buccaneers as the main theme, a world of adventures, hidden treasures and mythical undersea monsters which will all be coming into land in the harbour, Arr Jim Lad! The full programme will be unveiled in due course.

The big news for Carnaval 2018 is that Saida Prieto, the carnival queen who was horrendously burnt when her fantasia (carnival dress) caught fire back in 2013, will again be entering as a candidate for Carnival Queen. She will be representing the newspaper Diario de Avisos, and says that she hopes to recover her dream as well as she has recovered her health. I imagine that she will carry the goodwill and hopes of the whole of Tenerife with her, and I can’t imagine what it would take for this enormously brave woman now not to be Reina of Carnaval 2018!

Christmas is only just over, but the tickets for the adult murga final sold out last week within five minutes of becoming available. Tenerife is already in full gearing up for Carnaval mode, with the official presentation yesterday of the 13 carnival queen candidates to the mayor of Santa Cruz, José Manuel Bermúdez. All will be present at the official inaugural act of Carnaval 2018 this Friday, 12 January, at the Castillo Negro in Santa Cruz at 9.30pm.

Meanwhile the Cabildo has confirmed the dates for some of the most popular events. The main website is HERE but the carnival queen pageant will be on Wednesday 7 February; the opening parade on Friday 9th; the Day Carnivals on Sunday 11th and Saturday 17th; the Coso Apoteosis (main parade) on Tuesday 13th; and the burial of the sardine on Ash Wednesday, 14 February. It’s underway!
