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



Horse to be Loaned

I am looking for an experienced rider to loan my horse for the summer months, from mid March until the end of September. He is a chestnut gelding, full of character and perfect for the local ferias. Preferably to be kept at his present yard in Nerja. Please email me for more details and photos. Many thanks  imadeadman 15 @ gmail dot com

Response – To Life Certificate

I too have to produce evidence that I’m still alive for my pension from France.

I just go to the ayuntamiento and see the secretary.

She fills in the relevant parts, stamps and signs it.

Much easier than going to the consulate.
Hope this is helpful.

The new opening times for the public will be Monday to Friday 9.30 until 14.30 and on Sundays for religious services only.

To avoid the risk of people getting fines for coming by car to Lux Mundi at the wrong time we are now going to open earlier and therefore close earlier unless we have special events in the late afternoons and evenings. But for those who use cars to bring donations to the Centre, collect equipment or make use of our services there is  free  access by vehicles from 9am until 11am,  the rest of the day it is only allowed to authorised vehicles.

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
