Ground Nut (peanut) Oil

The Spanish name is aceite de cacahuete.

It is widely available, particularly in Chinese supermarkets

I’d ask at a local Chinese restaurant or bazaar where they get theirs.

Recommendation – TV Recommendation

I have had an android TV box from this company for over one year and it has been brilliant for all live UK TV and catch up.


they are vey helpful and only along the coast.




Recommendation Oscar Pinazo – 

 I’ve just got to recommend Oscar Pinazo for his diligence and knowledge regarding our electrical system that has for the past 14 or so years continually tripped for no apparent reason especially when we decide to travel for any length of time only to return to a very smelly fridge/freezer. Oscar arrived at our property yesterday and installed a ‘overvoltage protection unit’ and ‘Circutor Automatic reclosing RCCB’ in a very professional manner. Last night we had quite a storm accompanied by thunder and lightning and guess what? No trips!!!!!

Recommendation Needed – Pellet Stoves

I want to buy a pellet stove to heat my house but there are many

different makes on the market and a huge variation of prices.

Can anyone give a recommendation of a make to buy or advice

on what to avoid?

Thank you.

How 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.

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 forrmat…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. 

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. Jane


Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!
