  2. "Great copying! Theae facts appeared on the Canary Islands Facebook page a couple of days ago."

    First of all, if you took just a cursory glance (from your pictures on various social sites I see you use glasses) at my post you will notice that on the very TOP of it is clearly states and delineates:

    "Via Canary Islands Facebook:" with a highlighted hyperlink directly to the FB page.
