Small issue today due to internet problems, my brand new Movistar router died after only a week! Should be back to normal tomorrow. Sorry if I had to delay posting your submission. Naythan

Referring People To DigameXtra: Please explain to anyone you refer to DigameXtra they must read the rules and subscribe before sending in submissions. Only give new persons the website link, NOT my email. I am getting a dozen or more submissions daily from non-subscribers sending in incomplete submissions and have to answer each one with a rejection notice and subscription info, very time consuming. Obviously these newcomers have not read the blog. Someone (probably well meaning) is handing out the submissions email address without explaining the submission process. These noobies mistakenly think all they need to do to sell something is send me an email. Thank you for your cooperation. Naythan

Dancing & Exercise: Latin Dance Classes in Velez; starting on Tues. October 2 at 8:00pm. Studies show that dancing and especially learning or brushing up on steps is the ultimate form of body and brain exercises. Join us for 90 minutes weekly on Tuesdays for sharing a fun activity with same minded people. Francisco Sanchez, a Spanish instructor and Norma, his English speaking assistant, will inspire you to move to such Latin dances as Meringue, Salsa, Cha Cha Cha and Bachata. We will not rush to teach you complicated steps. These lessons are for individuals or couples who want to better understand 1) the basics of the body moving to music, 2) how to center yourself, 3) how to establish your center of gravity, 4) how to transfer your weight gracefully and 5) how to express in movements what the music conveys. But most importantly 6) how to feel joyful while moving to music and sharing this joy with others. Students will rotate partners to acquire maximum skills. All welcome!! Boost your oxygen intake and meet new friends. The monthly fee upon registration is for singles: 20€; for couples: 35€. For more details you can reply to norma2kk @ aol.com (no spaces); we looking forward to hearing from you!!

Wanted, Interpreter: I am in need of an interpreter to accompany me to the hospital in Velez on Monday 24th September when I am having a cataract operation at this point I am not certain of the time.

I would appreciate a fixed rate rather than an hourly one as I have no idea how long I will be there.
I am in Torrox Campo but can meet at the hospital obviously I will not be driving myself. Please reply giving costs involved.

DoctorLaptop’s Computer Repairs & Services:
I repair what others can only replace. All makes. Most jobs completed overnight.
What’s coming in the next big Windows 10 Update v1809 in Oct?
There are some significant, overdue changes such as an updated Clipboard with new Clip & Paste functions, and fairly silly updates like support for 157 new emojis. And of course they have reshuffled the Settings. What I found especially disturbing is the addition of these 2 terms in Settings: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Here is an example of AI at work. We already have predictive spelling, type 2 or 3 letters and the word pops up before you can finish typing. Now your comp will guess the next word before you finish typing the current word. I certainly don’t need Google to put their spin on what my next word should be. And I don’t need Machine Learning (since it surely knows better than me) altering settings I specifically set in a certain fashion.

Clinica Rincon/Sauld 101: In response to the question regarding Clinica Rincon changing hands we can confirm this is the case. We have been members of Salud 101 ( The Health Scheme which offers medical assistance at discounted rates) for a few years. We used to have the membership fee taken by direct debit every March. This year we have still been given discounted rates but the membership fee was not taken until September. Hope this is of help. jackiecrosby2009 @ hotmail.com Nerja

Salud 101 Update, Clinica Rincon: From our own experiences, I can thoroughly recommend membership of “Simple Care” to run alongsidethe Spanish National Health system as a top up. We have been members for several years now and the discount applied at the many clinics/dentists/physios etc. etc. is very good. Clinica Rincon is one of the associated clinics within the scheme. Our joint membership is 99 €uros per. annum. Renewal is always easy. Simple Care is based in Torrox. Website is http://www.getsimplecare.es/ The contact we deal with in Torrox is Juan Bazan on 625 539 429. Hope this info. is useful to you.

Help or advice with electricity supplier: Can anyone advise or recommend somewhere local to Competa where I’ll be able to increase my potentia with endesa which is proving remarkably difficult as I cannot access my online account anymore. Alternatively, I’m open to changing suppliers but would prefer to not incur the associated costs unless absolutely necessary. Has anyone had recent experience dealing with endesa in Nerja or is there a local contact who could assist with supplier changeover.
Thanks in anticipation. Ted, Ted11032016 @ outlook.com
