Identification of insect pest…..

Almost certainly the aptly named confused flour beetle ( tribolium confusum ) or one of its closely related cousins, generally they arrive in contaminated grain products  purchased from the shops, getting rid is usually achieved by disposal of the contaminated grain products and to be on the safe side also any other grain and rice products in your cupboard.

A good guess for your moth would be one of the over 4000 species of filter fly’s (Psychodidae) that live and breed down plug holes and drains, getting rid involves cleaning said plug holes and drains ( the bit just above the waterline is the important area). hot soapy water generally does the trick the water needs to have some washing up liquid in it as these critters are water proof.

well done on the inclusion of a photo with the coin it do make ID a lot easier !!  Haydn

 

 

Well trained, friendly cat…..

cat01 cat02Do you need a well trained, very friendly cat for 6 months to one year only to keep you company? A local lad, friend of our son, who has a beautiful, well trained, 4 year old cat, very friendly, affectionate and playful (4 years old) and a good companion, needs someone to look after her for a year, as he has had to go to the UK to find work.  We desperately need a home for her while he is there.  If you are here for a year, maybe renting, would you like to have her as your companion for the time you are here? She is not used to other pets so best in a house with no other cats.  Contact Toni on 606010580

What’s on- The 4th La Herradura Sea Festival

The Festival takes place this year on 7th and 8th October. The theme is La Mar de Vida -tan cerca , tan fragil and that theme of fragility and the response of the people of the village of La Herradura to the marine challenges in this area will be echoed throughout the two day festival.  Most of the activity will be centered in the area of the beach close to the Marinero statue/proteccion civil so that everyone will be easily able to join in.

Day one will have as its focus the children of the village, in particular the primary school children from Las Gaviotas as they learn through play and edutainment about becoming ‘future guardians of the sea’. Their parade starts at the school Las Gaviotas at 9.30 on 7th. Watch out for the gorgeous masks they will be wearing and the float with mermaids and mermen. They will visit the wonderful children’s photo exhibition  in the Centro Civico and then proceed to a circuit of workshops on many aspects of sea life echoing the theme of this year’s festival. A special song has been composed for the children this year.

Saturday 8th October starts with some great opportunities to introduce yourself to sea activities with trying out breathing under water with diving equipment and short catamaran trips.

You need to email inscripcionesfmar @ gmail.com to register for these in advance. The Asociación Amigos del Mar will have an information booth on the beach.

There will be plenty of fun for all the family with a set of stalls and games all sea themed plus a quiz during the paella lunch with lots of great local musicians playing throughout the afternoon. The action starts around 12 on the beach.

Don’t miss this year’s festival. It’s part of the blueprint for developing a place of marine excellence.

Can Anyone Help Me To Identify These Unwanted Intruders.

critter-brian
We returned to our apartment in Nerja last week after having been in the UK since June.When we opened the food cupboards we found lots of these tiny black insects who, despite flour and sugar being kept in what we thought were airtight jars,had got in and were very active.These two in the photo were found in the bottom of the freezer!.Before we left in June we sprayed with moth killer insecticide,as we had found a number of very small moths on the kitchen.Whether these two events are related,I do not know.If anyone can help identify these insects and indeed recommend how to get rid of them,we would be very much obliged.
Please respond to:

What’s On Visit to Rute

The Phoenix Club is off on Friday 25th November 2016 to visit Rute, an inland village in the province of Cordoba.  It is a lovely drive and once there we will visit their chocolate and biscuit factory and ooh and ahh at their famous Belen made entirely of chocolate.  In the afternoon we will pop into the Anise Museum where we will be able to sample their wares and buy a bottle or two for Christmas.

Rute’s primary economy centres on the extensive production of foodstuffs including dozens of different makes of Anis and traditional Spanish hams.

Rute comes from the word “Ruta” or “Route” in English. A route that Spanish soldiers followed when they were going to conquest Granada was the beginning of Rute. Later, the first “anis” factory was opened. Because of this, more factories were opened and this municipality became one of the most important makers of anis for over the world. Today, most of these factories are still open and a lot of people go to Rute at Christmas for the sweets that are made there.

iPhone 5 Problem

Can anyone help sort out a problem I am having with an iPhone 5 I have inherited?  I was reliably informed that the phone was unlocked and would take any SIM card, however on inserting a brand new nano card with HITS network it gives me the message, “the SIM card you currently have installed is from a carrier that is not supported under the activation policy that is currently assigned by the activation server”.  It then goes on to say I should insert another SIM card or request that this iPhone be unlocked, but I know it has been used in the UK with at least 2 different SIM cards from different networks successfully.
Please contact Lynn on 951088473 or lynngallon @ hotmail.com

 

 

Services Available-Interpreter

Well, summer is almost over and the hospitals and ambulatorios are back to normal after the vacations.
You should be getting that appointment you have been waiting for any day now.
Most doctors speak a little English, but much prefer you to have an interpreter with you, because the risk of being misunderstood or of misunderstanding  is too great.
I was an interpreter at the hospital for fifteen years And for the last five have been working privately for patients.  My charges are reasonable and they can include picking you up if needed. And , most importantly, I don’t charge by the hour.
Do call me.

What’s on- Yoga for everybody in Nerja, Torrox & Torre del Mar and at your residence

Namaste to all Diagame readers!

My name is Kiki Trenew. I am practising Yoga since 14 years – nearly every day – and it changed my life. To understand Yoga you have to practise regular. With increasing practise your power, confindence & well-being will grow slowly. Your view will go to the inside and this will make a change in your life.

Everybody can practise my Yoga whatever age or physical condition. I always work in little groups and i will adapt the Yoga posture to every single student. I mix Ayur Yoga, therapeutic Yoga, Yin Yoga & Vinyasa Flow Yoga – the basic you will find in Hatha Yoga. Every class can be different as i always work in needs of my students. Come along and try out and learn to boost & stretch in a healthy way:

Mondays 10 h and 20.30 h in Nerja & 12.15 h in Torrox

Wednesdays 10.30 h (men only) in Nerja and 12.30 h in Torre del Mar

Thursdays 18 h in Torrox

People who call me for information often ask what for people are in the group to know if there fit in especially with her age. All of these groups will suit everybody, but to give you an idea some more details to the groups: Monday morning group in Nerja are mostly women 60plus, but of course men are very welcome🙂. The Monday night class is a mixture women between 40 and 60. The Monday group in Torrox is a mixture of women & men 65plus.

In the Wednesday session in Torre del Mar are quite a  lot places left.

Men & women all ages.

The Thursday group in Nerja mostly women between 40-70..

For those who don’t like to work in a group, i offer one-to-one sessions in Nerja or at your residence.

For more information visit my website: www.solyoga.es, call me +34 627 411 358 or email me info.solyoga @ gmail.com

Wishing you all a wonderful week

Kiki

Avoiding Fraud

According to fraud body Financial Fraud Action (FFA), there were more than a million cases between January and June this year, with someone falling victim on average every 15 seconds.

To help you avoid becoming another statistic, FFA has provided five simple tips.

  1. Never disclose security details, such as your PIN or full password – it’s never right to reveal these details.
  2. Never assume an email request or caller is genuine – people aren’t always who they say they are.
  3. Don’t be rushed – a bank or genuine organisation won’t mind waiting to give you time to stop and think.
  4. Listen to your instincts – if something feels wrong then it is usually right to pause and question what’s happening.
  5. Stay in control – have the confidence to refuse unusual requests for information.

One item not covered is Direct Debits. With your bank details…. they are on every cheque…. a Direct Debit can be set up on your account by anyone, as Mister-Motor-Mouth found out to his cost! It is up to you to check your bank account regularly and report anything suspicious to your bank! the banks don’t tell you a direct debit has been setup…. but they should have to!

Cheers, Keith

 

 

Services Needed – Musicians for playing Beatles songs for fun.

Looking for musicians. Could be guitar, keyboard, bass, percussions, chorus voice. I am a lead singer and rythmguitarist.

Prof or amateur, old or young, rich or poor, educated or not, pretty or ugly – does not matter.

Only demands are that you love The Beatles songs and that you are not a pure beginner.

Situated in Competa but whole Axarquia is okay.

October and November this year – and continue next year as we find out.

If interested I can send you lists with a lot of Beatles songs you can choose among. Mail to brandtoft @ yahoo.dk

 

 

Services Wanted –Specialist Tea & Coffee Shop

I believe I heard a couple of years ago that there was a specialist tea and coffee shop somewhere in Torrox Costa. Is this true? Is it still open? If so, where is it? I’m more interested in getting hold of some decent tea rather than coffee – large-leaf Assam, Russian Caravan etc.
If you can help, please reply to vitruvianman @ outlook.es
Many thanks,
Mike

The Saga of the Folding Bikes Continues……

The number was valid but had omitted the UK dialing code (uk mobile number). The strange part was when you rang it you could hear background noises at the other end but no voice replied. I left a message on  a later unanswered call and was even rung back but the same weird thing occurred, all ambient sounds heard but no speaker !?

Bree is Still Missing

bree-missing

Hi there,we would like to thank everyone who has been in touch with us.Spanish,British and also holiday makers in Torrox Park/El Pino area.
Unfortunately Bree is still missing and it has been 12 days now.

We live in Manzano Bajo campo near El Morche  so it is more than likely she went further in to the campo.

Therefore we would like to make a further appeal especially to people living in the campo areas to please keep a lookout for her.
Bree is a very friendly 4year old medium /large dog,20 kilos and 50cm height to shoulder.

She has been clipped recently so her body is a light fawnish colour

Her head, back of legs and end of tail have been left uncut, hence are darker and shaggy.
Any info please phone Jim:629165902.
or whatsapp:00447933932042.
Many thanks.

What’s on Jukebox Bandits  

juke-box

Hi folks, Jukebox Bandits are playing live tonight Friday 23rd September on the terrace at Restaurante Maria at the Hotel Balcon in Competa from 9.00pm.

To reserve a table call 952 553662 or just come along for a drink.

Jukebox Bandits are a covers band consisting of Rod Jones on keyboards and Mitch France on acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, penny whistle and vocals.

They play an eclectic mix of pop, rock and folk standards from Britain, America, Ireland and Spain. From Dire Straits to The Dubliners, from Manu Chao to Jason Mraz. The music starts mellow (whilst people are eating), gradually picking up the tempo and culminating with the dance set including standards like Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”, REM’s “Losing My Religion” and The Mavericks’ “Dance the Night Away”.

 

 

What’s on – Multi-cultural Night of Music and Dance

multicultSunday October 9, La Plaza, Canillas de Albaida

From 8.00pm Free entrance

As part of its Cultural week, the Ayuntamiento of Canillas de Albaida proudly presents the Fifth Night of Multi-cultural Music and Dance to be held in the Plaza (main square) in Canillas de Albaida on Sunday 9th October. Admission to the event is free but there will be opportunities to donate to Action for Animals local charity.

The idea behind the event is to create an evening of music originating from as many countries as possible and we have an International line up of performers for the night.

The first artists to perform will be local duo, Jukebox Bandits, comprising of Rod Jones and Mitch France. They will play a set of songs and tunes from around the World on electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin and keyboards, Jukebox Bandits and friends will also finish the night off with a lively set of music for dancing to.

Up next will be Grupo Bailar de Axarquia, led by Francey, a local dance teacher and they will perform a number of different dance styles accompanied by a guitarist.

Africa and The Netherlands will be well represented by Xenophone – African Percussion, 2 Africans and a Dutch couple performing a very exciting set of percussive pieces to include some African dancing, always a big hit at the Cultural Concert.

All the way from Yorkshire especially to perform at this concert, the Wild Geese will be playing 2 sets of music, mainly Celtic but with some rock and roll and novelty pieces on guitars, fiddle, whistle, bodhran, banjo and mandolin. The Wild Geese last played in the Plaza for the opening of the hotel almost 10 years ago.

Yanique and Patrick from Competa will play next, a mix of blues and contemporary songs on keyboards and guitar. Yanique is a singing teacher from the Netherlands who is relatively new to the area and Patrick is originally from Norwich in the UK and has lived and played here for many years.

Due to ill health Aire Flamenco will unfortunately not be able to perform as originally advertised, a replacement is currently being located.

Biddies que Bailan (all local dancers) will then dance an Irish reel on stage.

This will be followed by a ceilidh where you the audience have a chance to take part with a caller who will tell you exactly what to do.

Last year the concert had to be postponed for several days due to rain, hopefully that won’t happen again this year as it is a bit earlier. This unique multi-cultural night of music had been a huge success in previous years, please come along and make sure it is just as successful again this year.

There will be an opportunity to donate to Action for Animals, a local charitiy, please give generously to help our furry friends in need.

For Youtube footage previous concerts, key in “Canillas de Albaida Multicultural night”.

What to do with the plastic bottle tops??

Pocapecunia, the charity shop in aid of The Love A Child Foundation, used to collect plastic bottle tops and customers brought them to the shop.

When I had bags full, I dropped them at the petrol station, just before Lidl on the way to Frigiliana.

As I did yesterday, but all of a sudden they refuse them now.

Does anyone have an idea what to do with them?

Can I drop them now in another place?

Don’t they need them anymore? pocapecunia @ yahoo.com

Unidentified Fruit – Response

This could be a pomelo. It’s hard to be sure from one photo, but it is clearly a citrus plant. Fruits like this are almost never poisonous because they rely on animals eating the fruit to spread the seeds. They can be laxative (eg figs) and whether they are to your taste is another matter.
When asking for help identifying a plant, bush or tree, you really need three photos. One showing the overall shape of the thing in its environment, one close up of two or three leaves on the stem, and one of the flower and or fruit. Cut one fruit to show the cross section. There are on line identification guides but you usually need a bit of basic botany (knowing your stamens from your pistils) to use them.

 Native English speaking volunteers required.

The Mario Zimbrano College in Torre-del-Mar runs a department specialising in equipping Spanish students (aged from 20 to 40 years old) to find employment in the tourist industry. A large part of their two year course is English Language and they are looking for native English speakers who can give some of their spare time to come and talk with the students to improve their fluency.

The classes are 1 hour long–  Monday 11:45 till 14:45 Wednesday8:15 till 14:45 and Friday 09:15 till 12:45.

No regular commitment is required just come on any day you are available and join in for  as long as you can.

There are some 8 of us who already attend when we can but some days only one of us is available so the teachers are hoping for more volunteers.

No formal teaching is required as we are there to help with pronunciation and word order etc. There is a lesson subject but that usually gets forgotten to talk about more interesting subjects like shopping, food, cars etc.  and you even learn some new Spanish words.

If you would be interested in helping please e- mail me at-

Johnmac2601 @ yahoo.com.

tc-me-smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

 

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

 

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPG or JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this format…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
