Kayla to be Rehomed- Sadly

Kayla Home

It’s with deep sadness that I have to find a new home for my 6 yr old German Shepherd Kayla as my husband has had to go back to the UK for work and I will be going back and forwards.

Plus I have arthritis in my knees and hip and struggle walking with her.

She is very loving she is good with people, children, other dogs and cats

She is chipped, has a passport and is up to date with her vaccinations

If you think you could offer her a loving home contact me by email lorrainemartin24  @  outlookdotcom.

Best wishes

Yvonne

Anne Puzicha, late of Casa Moda Natural, Nerja

Ann PuzDo you remember Annegret (Anne) Puzicha who for several years ran Casa Moda Natural on Calle el Chaparil, Nerja?

Sad to report that she died in hospital on 9th December in her native Germany having returned there a few years ago.

Since the death of her husband Gerhard five years ago, she had been housebound and news of her death has only this week been revealed.

Friends Herbert and Joy Chatters are inviting anyone who knew Anne, as a friend or customer, to join them to remember her over a drink at lunchtime on Sunday, 13th March in Nerja.

Anne will be remembered as a generous friend to many, raising funds through her fashion shows for the Sisters of the Good Samaritan and the churches at Maro and Frigiliana as well as collecting Christmas presents for deprived children.

If you would like further information about the remembrance meeting please contact Herbert and Jo bi email on      :        maronerja   @   europe.com

 

 

Makro & No Complaints Book ?

Can anyone advise me why Makro is exempt from having “Libro de reclamación”
I had a complaint about misleading goods and they informed me that they do not have complaints books only suggesting forms as they are a exempt.
I understood it was the law for any autonomo business to have these books.

Services – Amended Answer to FedEx Question

I don’t believe FedEx has a convenient office, but several times I have sent important documentation to the US and Canada via MRW, which has been around for years and has an office conveniently located near the old sugar factory chimney in Torre. They also have a “Bureaufax” service for legal documents, but I’ve never used it. Hope this helps.

Services Needed – Passport Renewal

I need to renew my UK passport and remember seeing an article on Digamextra which stated that the photo shop next to the police building in Torre del Mar does not produce the correct photos, e.g. with light grey or cream backgrounds.

Does anyone out there in Digameland know of a photo booth or studio that produces the correct format. Answers to Digamextra please.

Responses to – Tax on House Purchases

(1)

I am very sorry to read that you bought your house undervalued according to the Agencia Tributaria.
Who was your legal advisor during the property purchase?
Generally spoken, the Agencia Tributaria calculates the tax value of a property based on the ¨catastral¨ value multiplied by a coefficient that is different depending on the village or town you buy.
Example:
1. You buy a house in Cómpeta priced 100,000 Euros
2. The catastral value of the house is 95,000 Euros
3. The coefficient for Cómpeta is 1.3
4. According to the Agencia Tributaria the value of the house would be 123,500 Euros
5. You will get a bill to pay a percentage over 23,500 Euros.
I tell you this based on 10 years of experience as a real estate agent, but of course I am not a legal advisor myself. I recommend everybody to get legal advice from a Spanish registered lawyer on buying property in Spain. Based on knowledge and character I recommend:

I’m sorry JH, but sadly this is nothing new. We bought our house in 2003 and a couple of years later received a similar demand for the same reason. We were given 8 days to pay, or risk having our bank account frozen and house embargoed!

Obviously seek professional advise before deciding what course of action to take. But whatever you do, do not ignore this demand.

Good luck. Keith.

 

 

What’s on – Casa Magel B&B Re: Town hall in Ardales

Just to let people know that from the 16th March they are not taking any more bookings for the Camino walk, as it is fully booked for the Easter Holidays.

It will close at the end of March for 2 weeks and open again in the middle of April, when there will be a charge for it.

No one seems to know who is taking it over or what the charge will be.

They have assured us it will open again in April.

 

In the meantime we are still open and there are lots of things to do here. The 2 night B&B and 1  evening meal with wine is still available, so if you want to treat some one to a nice break, Birthdays or anniversaries, give us call or message us. website www.casamagel.com

Amendment to previous Item  re Movistar

Jan has – quite rightly – asked me to amend her entry yesterday.

I created a heading of “ Movistar Negative Opinion-“

Had I had time to read her entry properly (struggled with 40 entries yesterday !)

I would have realised that it was in no way a Negative Opinion.

My apologies to her (and Movistar)

Tax on House Purchases

(1)

We purchased a house in 2013 and also had to pay extra tax.

However, our lawyer had advised us that this was very likely to happen

early in the buying process.

He told us that house values hadn’t been revised since the property slump.

Sorry that my reply doesn’t help you save some money.  Linda

(2)

We are facing the same situation; our realtor and our lawyer are helping us thru the process of contesting the charges.  It is quite involved as you need to have pictures of the original conditions of the property and an inspector (perrito) sent by your realtor has to come and take measurements, write a report, etc..,

Should you need more information, you can reach me at                                 norma2kk  @  aol.com

(3)                                                                                                                                      Yes this happened to us based on our purchase 3 years ago. We bought the house at what we considered to be a fair market price, but the tax authorities took it upon themselves to get the house re-valued, and yes, their valuation was about 50% higher than what we paid and they sent us a huge bill for ‘unpaid’ tax.

It’s a dubious practice and according to our solicitor, is of borderline legality. We had the choice of paying the extra tax, or to challenge their valuation. This would mean paying for our own valuation, which together with legal fees to prepare the challenge, came to around 1000 euros. A lot less than the tax we’d have to find. The solicitor thought our chances were good, so we gambled and spent the money.

Then last summer (about 18 months later), the challenge was heard by a tribunal, and they found in our favour.

But the story doesn’t end there… the tax authority in Torrox, even with the results of the tribunal in their hands, decided to ask for a further valuation (note that at no time has anyone asked to be shown around the property), and we’ve just had a bill for 833 euros! It’s not worth us challenging this one so we’ve paid it.

So yes, they’ve finally ground us down!

To return to your question, I guess the decision whether to challenge the assessment depends on the numbers, but even with the recent bill, I think our decision to challenge was the right one.

Services Needed – El Lucero weather reporter wanted.
I am an avid hiker living in Frigiliana. On my last 2 attempts to hike up El Lucero  I was stopped by huge banks of clouds completely covering the upper third of the mountain.

Unfortunately this is not discernible from Frigiliana as, on both days, it was clear and sunny here. So what I am looking for is a person who has a clear view of the mountain from their house and who wouldn’t mind a phone call at 8am.

Such a service would be greatly appreciated and furthermore save me the time and gas to drive all that way only to abandon.

Response to – LPG in Spain 2 Warning

I wouldn’t have a fitted flu-less gas heater anywhere, ever.

You may as well have a portable unit

(about €100 new, with no installation costs and no annual testing) if you must. Beware second-hand heaters!

The red bottle is Butane and the red with black stripe bottle is Propane.

The heater may need to use the correct one for proper combustion.

There must be adequate ventilation to stop the killer CO (carbon monoxide) build up in the room and also to clear the water vapour that is released from the burning gas.

Responses – Water Leakage

(1)

Has the person who states the water pump keeps cutting in

checked all the toilet systems that there is no water leaking in to

the toilet bowl.  Ann Competa

(2)

I had the same problem a couple of years ago. Spent a lot of time trying to locate the leak and had several experts out trying to resolve the issue. It turned out to be very simple. One of our toilet cisterns in the bathroom had a tiny bit of cal on the sealing joint that had worn the plastic sealer with the result that the plunger was not closing completely. We changed the unit for a few euros and problem solved. Richard

 (3)

We had an under floor leak last summer, we first believed it may be the top of the pump as it had been leaking.  My husband changed that but it made no difference.  Next, we called in our plumber, who advised us he could hear the water running somewhere in our guest bathroom but couldn’t pinpoint it.  He asked if we had house insurance and if so to contact them.  The Insurance Co. sent a plumber who said the same and after firstly checking the shower control unit said he needed a specialist. The insurance co. followed up very quickly with the specialist who pinpointed it with all sorts of equipment and it was eventually fixed, new parts replaced and everything put back the way it should have been.

Don’t fiddle about, call your plumber first and if needed get your insurance company in pronto.

Good luck. Mave

(4)

Without seeing the setup it’s difficult to say. It works by having the pump run to build up a small pressure and the pump cuts out with a pressure switch.

When a tap (faucet) is opened the pressure drops and the pump runs.

There will be one or two non return valves fitted on or near the pump (suction and/or discharge) that could be weeping back and allowing the pressure to drop, so not necessarily a leak under the tiles?

A plumber will disconnect the pump and pressure test the lines into the house. You can do this yourself with a bit of fiddling with an old bike inner-tube and a bike pump if you’re handy?

Pump suction and/or discharge valves can sometimes be taken apart and cleaned, usually a bit of grit on the seat. If it happens regularly there are suction filter/separators available (well in the UK there are?),

Cheers, Keith

(5)

We have had this problem of the Water pump coming on with no apparent reason.

Following investigation, we found that the toilet water cistern was leaking into the toilet pan.

To check if this happening, put 2 pieces of toilet paper under the rim at the back of the pan,side by side.

If these become wet, they will adhere to the back of the pan, which proves there is a leak.

The cause may be a build up of cal on the seals, which can be remedied by putting a cal solvent

into the system, or replace the seal on the bottom of the plunger.

We hope this will be helpful in solving your problem.  S.D.

Thank you . No More Responses on this Subject Please. Jane Ed.

What’s On – III Festival of Sacred Music & Early Music 

Fest Music

This will take place on March 12 and 19 at the Casa del Apero in Frigiliana.     For those of you who have been with us in previous seasons, you are already aware of the unique nature of these concerts, both in terms of the musical and intimate quality. Space is limited to 60.

The Festival’s philosophy is to bring us closer to the different ways in which we connect to a sense of the religious, within the context of antique and baroque music.

SATURDAY MARCH 12, 8:30 PM   GRUPO VOCAL SINERGIA                       This respected Málaga ensemble will bring us an “a capella” program with musical pieces spanning the 15th Century until now,  by Ph. Verdelot (1485 – 1552); M Flecha “El Viejo” (1481 – 1553); J. de Mantua (1483 -1559); J. S. Bach (1685 – 1750); J. F. de Iribarren (1699 – 1767); A. Bruckner (1824 – 1896), among others.

SATURDAY MARCH 19, 8:30 PM FALUKA

This Granada-based group explores music originating in various Mediterranean countries in order to better understand the musical heritage of Spain. They will interpret romances and songs of the Sephardic Spanish tradition, from the Greek and Turkish culture, and from the Magreb and Mashreq periods from the 10th to 15thCentury.
 

What’s On –Excursion to Ronda

The Phoenix Club are  off on a jolly visiting the Historical City of Ronda on Sunday 22nd May.  This weekend is the Ronda fiesta and the streets will be teeming with plenty to see and do including a medieval market, equestrian show, dancers and jugglers.  This trip proves very popular so please book early.
Ronda in Andalucia, Spain is a popular city amongst travellers due to its romantic location in the mountains. The history of Ronda has seen many rulers settle and build upon the town, which is perched on top of a mighty cliff. Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs and Catholic monarchs all left their mark. Wars and subsequent rebellions such as the Napoleonic invasion and the Spanish civil war inspired many stories, including Hemingway’s “For Whom the Bell Tolls”.
The romantic character of both the location and history of Ronda has accumulated in a yearly event known as Ronda Romantíca. Although it wasn’t set up until recently, every year more people flood to the city to witness this enchanting dive into the past. As locals dress up as their favourite character from history, the streets come alive with markets, parades, music, dances and stories from the romantic times of Ronda – the late 18th and the 19th century. It is simply a must-see experience.
Another important part of Ronda Romantíca is the historical fair, where the importance of livestock for the area throughout the ages becomes obvious. Cattle and horses were a great source of wealth, and the stately traditional fairs where these could be traded exempted from tax were a tell-tale sign of city’s importance. It’s no wonder then that one of Spain’s oldest bull rings is found in Ronda.
So do you love history, romantic views and enthusiastic Spanish fiestas? Then you can’t miss out on Ronda Romantíca 2016! Whether you participate in the parade in your own costume or enjoy the traditional fair, dances and stories as a spectator – this is one experience you won’t forget.
Date:  Sunday 22 May 2016
Price?  €17pp and includes drivers gratuity.
Depart Algarrobo Lidl at 9am and returning from Ronda at 6pm.

Services – Movistar – Negative Experience

I can endorse everything said by the previous poster.  I changed to Movistar when the company I was using refused to replace free, a 13 month old router that was supplied by them and had ceased working.  It was still within the manufacturers 2 year warranty, but the company explained that they only offered a 1 year warranty, and this was explained in  their ‘small print’.  They wanted to charge me 50 euros for a router available in Worten for 34 euros.  I told them not to bother.  This company offered 9 – 5 service weekdays only.  Since changing to Movistar I have a service team available 24/7, with English speaking staff.  They have a fleet of service vans so are very prompt in dealing with faults unlike the others who usually don’t to house calls at all, but post you a new router which takes days to arrive and you have to fit yourself.  Movistar  usually have the best speeds.  Fixed lined are rarely affected by weather conditions, their TV is a free optional extra, so in my mind they are worth every extra penny paid.  They were bad in the past but have certainly up their game, and their customer relations

Responses – Free Range Eggs

(1)

The lady who sits on Torrox Costa market at the very end near the Malaga Playa hotel he’s delicious free range eggs, but you need to get there early. Another outlet is the Torrox Costa Yoga Centre and also the mini market on Avenida de America ( where the Hong Kong  restaurant is ) .

The German butcher across the road from the mini market sells the most delicious smoked ham .
Joan

I have been supplying free range and organically produced eggs for years, my hens are truly free range.

Although they have sheds for inclement weather and to lay, they all (80ish) roost overnight 3 metres up in our trees–you are welcome to visit if you wish, many people have.

One of my outlets is the organic market at the garden centre between Vinuela and Velez Malaga every Saturday between 10am and 2pm.—ask for Jo.

We are in the Los Romanes area near lake Vinuela.

Recommendation – Buddha

  Having seen several recommendations, latterly that from Marj on 16th
February on Digame, Coral and I went over to the Buddha Restaurant at
Penoncillo for lunch today.  Wow, a bit special or what!
By far the best Indian food I have ever eaten in Spain, and alongside
the best I have eaten in London.  What fabulous flavours, what a
comprehensive menu, what charming service.  Never mind the Menu del
Dia, dive into the main menu, so very interesting, so many dishes, not
at all like the average Indian.  And the staff so happy to explain and
assist in your choice.  Even the various rice dishes were so full of
wonderful flavours.  All I can say is go, and enjoy!
And to cap a fabulous meal, who came in to the restaurant, but old
friend Piyush, who will be known to many of you as a great cook of
Indian food, who is apparently supplying the restaurant.  Good to see
you Piyush, about time you opened up again yourself,  We miss you.
Jeremy

 

 

Recommendation –  Coconut Oil

You can buy organic coconut oil at the health shop in Torre del Mar at a good price.  It is by the square where the market is on a Thursday.

Warning – Processionary Caterpillars

Whilst walking my dog this evening I saw two rows of these caterpillars crossing the track.

This was about 7pm on Carril del Espejo, Competa, about 500 metres before the boundary with Torrox. Map reference 36.788257, –3.971101.

There is a pine tree near the track covered in nests so they are obviously on the move. Take care. Alan.

Recommendation –  Praise for Telfonica Movistar

Great service

Praise for Telfonica Movistar’s great service
Over the past ten years I’ve heard many complaints about Movistar (Telefonica). Typically people claim they are slow, they don’t fix problems, their ADSL connections fail to meet promised speed, and their staff don’t speak English.
We have had a Movistar landline ADSL data connection packaged with a mobile phone for years. When there has been the occasional problem it has been solved either by phoning 1004, where there are English speaking personnel (we don’t speak Spanish), or by going to one of the Movistar shops.
I recently doubled the ADSL speed to 20Mb in a simple online process after discovering, while doing a routine internet speed check, that I could get twice the speed at no extra cost. I ordered it online and it worked three hours later. The speed we actually get is 19.5Mb.
Two days ago our Movistar ADSL modem/router stopped working. The lights went out and it was dead. I phoned 1004 and within 30 seconds I had an English speaking lady on the phone. The problem was quickly registered and I was told a technician would call me. That happened two hours later. He asked if I was home and if so he would be at our house in five minutes (up beyond Competat at Canillas de Albaida). He came with a new router and it was up and running perfectly within 10 minutes, at no charge to us. A very helpful man who even spoke quite good English.
We pay a very few euros more a month for our package compared with other services we have seen, but the peace of mind we achieve from having a reliable internet, also for hassle-free TV, is worth every cent. I am very satisfied with Movistar’s services. The speed at which our dead modem/router problem was solved is just outstanding.

Wanted – Free Range Eggs

Can anyone tell me where I can buy proper free range eggs. By free range I mean the chickens spend some time outdoors. I know the supermarkets have a version of fresh campo eggs, but I prefer to buy direct from owners if possible.
I have been buying my eggs from a Spanish man in the campo, who assured me my eggs came from country local chickens. I have since found out the chickens do live locally in the campo, but never leave the shed, to me that’s not free range.
I live in the Torrox area, please reply to Digamextra as others may be interested
Many thanks

Linda

Recommendation – Opticians

My glasses from Specsavers broke so when in Velez-Malaga, I dropped into Morales Opticos, near the new covered market

(across the road opposite the two large pound shops on the main road

into Velez-Malaga with the tram line on it).

I asked if they could be repaired and she said it would take half an hour.  I went back and they were perfect and had been cleaned – FOR NO CHARGE.  She wouldn’t even take a tip.       Margaret

 

Recommendation – Silks restaurant Torrox Costa

We had a great meal at Silks last night. Good food and friendly people. The menu provides a good alternative

Local 2 Bloque 8 where the Lord Benson used to be.

Responses – Virgin Coconut Oil

(1)
In reply to Pauline who was asking where to buy coconut oil here in Spain,

we buy organic virgin coconut oil from a company in Malaga called Coconoil.  The email address is carlos . abehsera @ gmail . com and he speaks excellent English.

Vera

(2)

To the person asking the whereabouts of extra virgin coconut oil,

these days just about all health -shops will stock it ,also Iranzo’s in Nerja

has it, although it may seem expensive the benefits are pretty miraculous,

look on YouTube and be prepared to be amazed ,unless of course you

know about it. Alzheimers ,cancer ,fybromyalgia, M.S. and just about everything

else but death. Dr Mary Newport is a great introduction to helping

reverse Alzheimers. She says it works for approx 50% of sufferers.

Cheers Kennedy.

Guide “Blog” for the Blind…

Do you know anyone with low vision or are blind?

Over two years ago i started to write a blog aimed primarily at expats living in Spain, “The Expats Window.” At that time i estimated that there were approx. 34000 blind or vision impaired British and German expats living in Spain and there was a distinct lack of support available. The 34000 excludes other foreign nationals.  Over time the readership of the blog has steadily increased. Not surprisingly the greatest number of hits are from the USA but Spain is 4th behind the UK and Ukraine!!

There are light-hearted as well as the more serious articles with information about the latest research into treatments for eye diseases such as Macula Degeneration and Retinitis Pigmentosa. The Blind Expats Window is a platform for entertainment, information and discussion. I am continuously looking for new contributions especially with local (Spanish) interest for posting and of course new readers. Most people who are officially registered as Blind have some vision, in that i include myself, and by various means manage to read albeit sometimes with difficulty.

I only ask if anyone out there know of someone who fits the bill please let them know about the Blind Expats window. I look forwars to many more hits and contributions from Spain.

 What’s on Local animal charities march for change

 

The chant ‘No perreras más protectoras’  (no dog pounds, more refuges) rang out in Rincon De La Victoria on the sunny morning of Saturday 20 February, when more than 60 supporters from local animal rescue groups came together to campaign for change in the often cruel way animals are treated here in Spain. In particular they would like to see the kill policy in perreras being abolished and the perreras being replaced with protectoras which care for the welfare of the animals.

The supporters, many with their own dogs and carrying placards with pro animal messages, gathered at the Plaza de Ayuntamiento in Rincon De La Victoria and after a minute of silence in respect of lives lost moved off along the Paseo Maritimo accompanied by the Guardia Civil.

The march received a lot of attention from people along the route with onlookers taking photographs and applauding the supporters and their cause.  One Guardia officer is quoted as saying that he would be willing to carry a banner as he believed in what the protesters were saying but unfortunately he was not allowed to.

The supporters taking part were from Animal Defense Action, Tail in Torrox, APARiV in Rincon de la Victoria and Axarquia Animal Rescue.

Everyone can help to make more and more people aware of the situation in the dog pounds and the cruelty inflicted on animals as another march has been arranged in Torre del Mar, for Saturday 5 March meeting at El Faro (the lighthouse) at 11.30am for 12.  Please come along and show your support.

Recent Death of a Husband – Advice & Help Needed Please

Funeral arrangements for Brian Lynch who died very suddenly on Friday 19th. February.

Brian will be at the chapel of rest Nerja at 2p.m. on Monday for a humanist service.

The chapel of rest is on Avenida Pescia beside the cemetery

and next to the petrol station.    Parking is very difficult in this area and parking at El Puente might be a good idea as we shall be dropping in there after the funeral to raise a glass or two.

Hope to see you all there and GINS tee shirts will be most welcome.

Many thanks from Mary and our  three daughters, Grainne Cliona and Ashling

Permanent home needed for Truka
Tukka dog
Dog abandoned in the campo 6 months ago. I took her in on a temporary basis for someone who intended having her but unfortunately I was let down. Truka is 2/3 years old, I have had her spayed and vaccinated. She is very good natured, well mannered, gentle and intelligent. She gets on very well with my four dogs and five cats. Unfortunately I am unable to keep her due to personal circumstances.

I have added to the first film so you can now see more of the puppies at the end

Proof of Life

My wife was once asked for this  and her pension frozen in the meantime,

In order to resolve this,  we contacted the British Embassy in Malaga .

They required us to go in with passport and they then sent off an email to the Pension People in the UK that she was still alive –  with proof.

Very straightforward if lengthy affair

The banks have ripped you off – explanation from the UK

In May 2015 financial regulators around the world (including the UK) imposed fines on six banks totalling about £2 billion because they were fixing foreign exchange rates. It does not matter if you did not bank with them as they set the market rates. You have almost certainly been affected by their actions but you could not possibly have known about it. As a result, you would be entitled to compensation.

So you know this is not some spam, my name is Nick Scott & I am a barrister in England (http://www.stapleinn.co.uk/barristers/nicholas-scott/).

The banks have been fined by the financial regulators for fixing foreign exchange (FX) rates between 1 January 2008 and 15 October 2013. FX rates are used not only when you transfer money but also when money invested on your behalf is used. Every investment (e.g. pension, endowment mortgage, ISA or investment fund etc.) uses the FX rate when they buy stock or bonds in any company or country that is not based in the UK, e.g. US bonds or shares in Coca-Cola, Renault and Shell.

Therefore you can apply for compensation if between 1 January 2008 & 15 October 2013 you:

1) transferred money from the UK to Euros e.g. bought a house or transferred a pension

2) had a pension or any other kind of investment (except premium bonds).

If you are interested in some further information then please do not hesitate to email me on: fxcompensation@gmail.com or call me on 07846145665.

All the best

Nick

 

 

Services Needed –

I am just about to do some heavy pruning and wonder whether there is anywhere near Competa or Torrox that I can dispose of the waste. Is there a municipal tip?  Failing that can anyone recommend a skip company?

Recommendation – Dentist, Torrox Costa

I would like to recommend to you all, a dentist my wife and I have used in Torrox Costa.

The practice is within the Clinica Europa and his name is Dr Michael Mannish.

My wife had used the practice before me and as I had been looking for a dentist for some time I went along to speak with Dr Mannish  and make an appointment.

Having had a very poor experience with a dentist in the area and having experienced some grubby and sometimes dirty premises, over staffed with front desk personnel I did not know what to expect what I would find at Clinica Europa.

I was very pleasantly surprised to meet Dr Mannish and his assistant Manuela and found them both to be friendly and very professional on our first meeting.

Over the weeks that followed Dr Mannish repaired two teeth I had damaged placing a crown on one and rebuilding another.

The procedures were pain free handled professionally and very efficiently by both Dr Mannish and Manuela.

My wife and I are both retired army people, my wife with 12 years service and myself with 36 years as a soldier and officer with a requirement to attend dentists both civilian and military twice yearly for checks and if required treatment so we both feel confident to make comments on what we have seen and experienced throughout the years so, therefore without fear of contradiction we know Dr mannish and Manuela are amongst the best in their chosen profession!

Dr Mannish, Manuela from both of us thank you very much.

Sincerely Fraser and Mandy Wilson, Sedella
