EU sides with Americans in Europe in fight against US tax schemes:
Brussels asks the US government to ease their complicated tax policies that are putting 300,000 US residents in Europe in a financial squeeze.
For years the Accidental Americans Association (AAA) has battled to be exempt from a tax scheme imposed by the US requiring that all Americans file annual tax returns to the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – even when the person has not lived on US soil since they were a child. In recent years the US has made renouncing your US citizenship more difficult and very expensive for people who consider themselves “tax hostages”.

News & Articles

Boris Johnson appears on course to secure a crushing majority of 86, and take Britain out of the EU in January, after a shock exit poll showed his party would win 368 seats in Thursday’s general election. That would be the biggest Conservative majority since Margaret Thatcher’s third election victory in 1987; and mark a dramatic repudiation of Jeremy Corbyn’s offer of “real change” for Britain.

One For The Kids- Rock Cirk: Christmas and the New Year are the times for circus but the Teatro Cervantes in Malaga City has a very special one aimed at younger audiences entitled Rock Cirk.
This show which is presented by just five musicians and acrobats combines rock music with agility, acrobatics and fun so for just under an hour, audiences can enjoy a really exciting show which combines expertise from two quite different areas.
It’s presented by the Malaga based Rolabola Theatre Group which won the National Circus Award 2017 and has created a number of original shows over its lifetime.
The show starts at 6pm on January 4 and tickets cost just €9 from the theatre box office, so for a fun day out just before the Three Kings arrive, Rock Cirk may a great option.

Recommendations

Lovely vegan restaurant in Torre Del Mar: Himalaya Salon Vegan. We went on plant based diet recently and feel blessed there’s such a high quality vegan restaurant in the area. Can definitely also recommend for non-vegan eaters.
As everything is homemade, organic and vegan, you get what you pay for, we shared nachos, had a burger each which came with nice salad and some oven baked fries, chocolate cake and drinks, 53€ (for 2 persons).
Ambience is really accomplished and waiter lovely.
Gunila/Benajarafe ; gunilavet@gmail.com

 

Agaves under attack – reply: The attack of the Agaves sounds a bit like the beetle (picudo rojo) that attacks certain palms and which also lays white grubs which eat the core and produce a vile stench, eventually killing the tree. There is a series of products from Fertinyect claiming to treat all sorts of similar problems (https://www.fertinyect.com/tratamientos/), such as the processionary caterpillar (which we are currently trying, so no idea yet if it works).
Good luck. Nick/Jete, Granada 609 706 210

Bull Farm: Dear digamigos! My friend, the Dutch sculptor Peter Engelen, would like to study – observe- Spanish Bulls at a bullfarm. Does anyone have any contacts of bull farms? I include a picture of a bronze he made portraying a Dutch bull.
If so please contact me: Julia dot Horzinek at gmail dot com or via WhatsApp +34694448600 Julia/Nerja PIC

Recommendations

Agaves under attack: I have agaves on my land, where I’ve lived for some years, and this year some have been infested in the base by, I think, a smallish, black beetle which lays eggs producing white maggots. Presumably these feed on the plant, eventually killing it, apparently by rotting the base, and leaving a brown residue and a strong smell similar to fermentation.
Losing the agaves doesn’t much bother me, though clearing up the resulting mess isn’t much fun. Anybody else had this happen or able to provide more information about the critters causing this ecological disaster? Steve/Algarrobo

News & Articles

Just Where Did Facebook Come From and Why Is It So Evil? by Naythan
Was Mark Zuckerberg capable of writing the Facebook code unassisted? No, he stole it. Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, Olympic rowers, identical twins and fellow Harvard students of Zuckerberg claimed that they, not Zuckerberg, had the original idea and basic code for Facebook. They were awarded a $200 Million settlement against Zuckerberg in 2008, back when that was a big sum for a 4yr old startup. https://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/12/technology/12facebook.html
The Winklevoss twins wrote a primitive social media app for use on their campus. Somehow Zuckerberg got his hands on it, and despite having only a basic coding ability, turned it into Facebook by having it inserted in a much larger framework. Why was he even allowed to proceed with it’s development after 2008? And where did this sophisticated framework that would become Facebook (once the twin’s written part of the code was inserted into it) come from if Zuck struggles with simple coding?
This is where fact and conspiracy collide. This comprehensive article explains much, with solid, documented facts in many cases, but quite a bit of extrapolation into the “possibilities”, attempting to “connect the dots”, is included and certainly muddies the waters. Some may even say it’s bordering on sci-fi and reading like a fictionalized-history or detective story. If the roots of social media interest you, both the facts and legends, you’ll find this a fascinating read. Then impress your kids at dinner tonight with some fun facts to drop in the conversation, if you can get them to put down their iPhones that is.
Fair Warning: If you are annoyed rather than entertained by conspiracy theories skip it.

Coco told Euro Weekly News, “We want to offer a quality meal for elderly couples who cannot prepare their own, to people who are unable to leave the home, and to those who would otherwise be very lonely. We can also arrange to pick up and drop off people, and would appreciate if anybody would like to volunteer to help us with this.” Coco and Gemma of Sister’s Taperia in Marbella regularly give up their Christmas to help others.
This year decided to put on a luxury lunch with transport for those who need it for just €5. Coco explained there will be canapes, soups, main course and sweets – subsidised though regular fundraising events.
Sister’s Taperia, in Urbanizacion Los Naranjos De Marbella, can seat up to 60 people. To find out more, call the restaurant on 660 326 955.
Reservations must be made before December 21. Full article: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2019/12/05/bringing-christmas-cheer-to-the-lonely-and-housebound/#.XerU9mYo_rc

UPDATEDDoctorLaptop’s Computer Service Offers: EXTENDED UNTIL Jan 1st 2020. Only 6 weeks until Windows 7 becomes officially obsolete! Windows 10 v1803 has been obsolete for nearly a month, don’t fall behind!
-Upgrade your Windows 7 computer to Windows 10 AND Set It Up Properly, €70. Ask anyone you know who has set up a brand new computer recently about that process. You get asked a lot of questions in jargon, and they trick you into signing up for services and 30 day app-trials you don’t want, think Norton/McAfee/Dropbox/Office365/etc. Windows now tries to insist you open and use a Microsoft account to log into your computer, it automatically logs you into all kinds of services that run in the background by default, all 32 of them! If you don’t have a Microsoft linked email like Outlook/Hotmail you will be asked to set up a new email with Outlook before proceeding. There is another way to do a setup, without being bound at the hip to Microsoft, but they obscure that button on the opening setup screen, not clearly named and easy to miss unless someone shows you. There are many other settings that can be optimized from the Window’s default settings which are more for Microsoft’s benefit than yours! When doing the upgrade your data is saved, all your 3rd party software is removed by Windows in the process, all saved passwords will need to be re-entered. Some early Win 7 computers cannot be upgraded, or can only be upgraded to Windows 10 32-bit (not 64-bit). If it has a Pentium processor or was built before 2012 this may be the case.
-Update your Windows 10 v1803 computer to the current v1903. Yes, v1803 is now obsolete, having reached it’s end of support on November 12th. That means it will not receive important security patches any longer. It’s recommended NOT to do banking/shopping on an unprotected computer. If you fail to do this soon you may be unable to update to v19H2 (aka v1909) directly thru the Windows Updater,  it will then require you download a special updater tool from MS. Or I can do it overnight, €35. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-1803-users-warned-to-update-before-end-of-support/
-All work by appointment. Make appts by phone, so we can discuss available times and what you need to bring.
-When requesting email assistance always include make/model/System version info.
-Free shopping research! Avoid lemons! Send me your requirements and where you will be shopping (local stores, UK stores or online shop), I’ll check online for the best deals.

Overdraft hike: British banks are taking advantage of tough new rules from regulators, supposedly designed to protect consumers, to charge outrageous service fees. They are to turn to a single rate for overdrafts but HSBC will be increasing their rate to 39.9 per cent from March 2020. That is some seriously expensive protection!

MOT Waiting time: Re your item on MOT times I thought it worth recording that today 4th December I had a prebooked appointment at ITV centre Algarrobo. Appointment was made, by their computer, for 07.02
Was seen at desk at 07.10. Was checked in at 07.15. Was completed at 07.30
All without any hassle whatever.
The most efficient and impressive of any official service I have ever encountered in Spain. Gordon/Torrox/gordon.rae1 AT hotmail DoT com
(As of 4pm Wednesday TRE Radio is still reporting that at ITV stations they checked there are up to 8hr delays. This is also being widely reported in local media, none of the news sources mentioned the terms “appointment” or “prebooked”. I don’t drive so I don’t know if drop-ins are even allowed, or if all inspections are by appointment, or how a prebooked appointment differs from a regular appointment. To quote Chuck Berry’s 1956 hit, “too much monkey business for me to be involved in.” -Ed.)

Avast and AVG Browser Extensions Spying On Chrome and Firefox Users: If your Firefox or Chrome browser has any of the below-listed four extensions offered by Avast and its subsidiary AVG installed, you should disable or remove them as soon as possible.
Avast Online Security
AVG Online Security
Avast SafePrice
AVG SafePrice
Why? Because these four widely installed browser extensions have been caught collecting a lot more data on its millions of users than they are intended to, including your detailed browsing history (every website visited, every search you make, every video/stream/pic watched or listened to, everything you click on).
Most of you might not even remember downloading and installing these extensions on your web browser, and that’s likely because when users install Avast or AVG antivirus on their PCs, the software automatically installs their respective add-ons on the users’ browsers.
“Tracking tab and window identifiers as well as your actions allows Avast to create a nearly precise reconstruction of your browsing behavior: how many tabs do you have open, what websites do you visit and when, how much time do you spend reading/watching the contents, what do you click there and when do you switch to another tab. All that is connected to a number of attributes allowing Avast to recognize you reliably…” Palant said. So even if you are using a VPN, you can be identified! Scary. Even your antivirus is spying on you.
