Giving Back: Clean Beaches

The last couple days I have picked up 4 trash bags full of garbage from 1 small beach in Torrox.

Please help me give back to the country of Spain.  Next time you go to the beach, bring a bag with you and collect trash, and dump it in the bins.

Tourist take, residents give.

I know it may be a cultural thing, but cultures can change.

Does anyone know who I would turn to to get signs printed and posted that say something like: “Pack your trash out.”

As I was picking trash up someone came up to me and asked me why I was doing it.  I said, because I like to walk on a clean beach.  He was stunned, saying something to the extent of,  it was not my job, so why would i do it…I believe its everyones job…if you use the beach…keep it clean.  Do you?

If so, contact me so we can work together to clean up some of the local beaches.

Passports & Pictures – Update

A short time ago the subject of where to have your passport photo taken was discussed.  I had mine taken at the small studio near the police station in Torre Del Mar, they looked fine and certainly were the right size.  However, when I presented them at the passport office in London yesterday, they were refused, as the background colour was incorrect.  They are very strict about having the light grey background, so I had to have another set taken. That wasn’t a problem, as there are at least half a dozen photo booths in the building.  If you are going in person to the office, I would recommend getting there at least 20 minutes early, as it takes a while to get through the airport-like security, then reception, before you get your ticket number.  Once you have that, you will have plenty of time to get your photo’s done.  If you are going for a 4 hour turn around passport, remember the 4 hours doesn’t start until you have been through the whole process and paid for your new passport.

Services Available Interpreter

Do you need to talk to your doctor ?  Or go to the hospital ?

In most cases you will need to take an interpreter with you.
I am an interpreter with many years experience.

Fifteen years as a volunteer in Vélez Málaga hospital and ten years working on my own.
I give a complete service, as anyone who has used me will tell you.

I take calls from the hospitals for you (if you don’t speak the language, the telephone is difficult). I pick you up, if you don’t have a car and I deal with all the paperwork you need for social security, appointments, residencia etc.
I charge a flat, reasonable fee.  I don’t charge by the hour.
If you think I can help, call me. Even if it’s only for advice.

I’ll be pleased to hear from you.

I needed a professional cleaning and valeting job done on my car in preparation for it’s ITV, and I called Kevin Lambert ( 693567351 ) mainly in response to some very positive recommendations I had seen. He offers ‘mobile valeting’ and although I live way up in the hills, he and his wife Jenny  managed to track me down, and they did a brilliant job – in very hot weather !

 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.

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!
