Beau Needs a Home       

beau01Beau is 4 years old and is a very nice and playful dog. Due to health issues of his current owners, he can no longer stay with them. He’s been chipped, has a pasport and had all of his vaccinations. He’s very sweet with children. If anyone would like to give him a new and loving home or want more information please contact: zajclut at hotmail dot com.



Lovely, Small,Female Dog found in Competa  …..    

tiny in CampoLady in Competa  seeks help  as she has taken in a lovely small, sterilised, female dog, “Laica” who she found shivering on a cold night at the top of Competa Pueblo. She already has 8 dogs and a number of cats so she cannot keep her much longer.

Do you recognise her? Could you foster her? or offer her a permanent home?                  She is small, black and tan, approximately 2 years old, very affectionate and sociable and gets on well with people and other dogs – but not so keen on cats.                     She is sterilised, parasite free and would make a wonderful companion – she doesn’t need a lot of space.                                                                                        If you would like to meet her or want more information please email                        Julie at thomson juiiec @gmail.com -no spaces!                                                 0r telephone 638893306

Recommendation – Buddha House Restaurant in Torrox Costa I second Dawn’s recommendation for the recently taken over Buddha House Restaurant in Penoncillo.
I have eaten there three times in the past month bringing friends each time. The various dishes that we have sampled have been truly delicious and authentic for a change. The highlight is the different breads from the Tandoor oven, I love their garlic and keema naan bread. I have tried many Indian restaurants in the vicinity and have not had better Indian food along the coast.
Am looking forward to trying out their new menu once ready!

Recommendation- Kitchen Design

I can recommend Cocinas Ambiente.

Their shop is close to Supersol in Torre del Mar.

They project managed the complete renovation of our kitchen, including liaising with other companies who were changing the windows and moving the gas boiler.

Apart from giving excellent advice and planning every detail, the quality of their products and work is very high.  Linda

Please note the e-mail address precautions I employ

The precautions I take with people’s email addresses are as follows……

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.  Jane



Please Note

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. Jane
