Rental Needed 3 weeks n Torrox Costa June – July 2016

A woman friend of ours is looking for a small, simple, clean, not-too-expensive, but comfortable furnished apartment for about three weeks, starting the last week of June and ending mid-July.

We live in Torrox Costa, along Peñoncillo, and would like her to stay near us.  She’s a professor and dean of a college, single, with no pets.

Any suggestions or offers?

Please email me at aliciabaylaurel (at) gmail (dot) com.

 

 

Recommendation – Paco’s Bar, Choto Plata

Have you eaten at Paco’s new restaurant on Torrox Costa?  He’s opened a second Bar Choto Playa No. II just past the turn off for camping El Pino sign on the left hand side of the N340 going towards Nerja.  It’s called Venta Peñoncillo and he’s installed a wood oven for slow cooked oak smoked pork, ribs and cochinillo asado and has a barbecue outside.  Large off road parking through the gate next to the restaurant.  Valentina and Luis are running things and will make you very welcome.  Give it a try.  Closed Mondays.

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 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.

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

Broken Ipad screen – Possible Outcome & Thanks
Thank you to everyone who gave me advice and suggested local companies .

No one suggested Marbella Apple Store and my attempts to contact them were not successful .
Local shops with Spanish technicians quoted 80-100 euros for my iPad and various people recommended different shops in Nerja
The English technician quoted 125 euros
All seem to want the machine for days as they apparently strip it down , find the exact screen required, then order it , and later fit it ….Monday seems a good day to take it in and you might get it back by the week end .! ..

I am testing this next week !

What’s on –Marie LeBone Duo

Dear Friends,

We want to remind you our next concert on Saturday 20th in Ventana Abierta, this time with a Duo who is having a resounding success in the Malaga area. They have recently been part of the Malaga Jazz Festival 2015, and have performed in neighboring Velez-Malaga.

The Marie LeBone Duo offers a voyage through musical themes arising from the merging of two of the 20th century’s great cultural achievements: Jazz and Cinema. It is not surpriing, indeed, that the first film to include sound, circa 1927, was The Jazz Singer. Since then, this relationship has resulted in a wealth of unforgettable works, enthralling audiences throughout the years. This concert will delight music and cinema lovers alike.

Themes will include, among others: Somewhere Over the Rainbow from the 1939 musical The Wizard of Oz; Someday My Prince Will Comefor the Walt Disney 1937 film Snow White; Nature Boy (1947), which is part of the soundtrack of the 2001 film Moulin Rouge; WIld Heart (1993); The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999); Miss Celie’s Blues from The Color Purple (1985); Manha de Carnaval(1959) of the Brazilian film Black Orpheus.

 

The concert will also include a special homage to the best jazz voices and musicians of all time, including themes by Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Joe Pass and Irving Berlin.

Span dog Span dog 02

My small Spanish dog has gone missing in the Triana area.

Her name is Rosie, she is black and white.

She has 4 white feet, white  chest and neck, white tipped tail.

She is a mixture but resembles a Spanish Water Dog.

If you see her she may be frightened so please put a leash on her.

Please phone Eleanor, who was minding her for me, on 677 306 005.

I am presently in the UK and quite devastated she is missing

Litter to Home

litter

I know we are suffering from burn out when it comes to saving animals here in Spain but what can we do about these six puppies born a few weeks ago on the hill above Torrox/Nerja and likely to be dumped somewhere.  The owner speaks of selling them in a pet shop but I am told this is not allowed.  The other option is the place near Malaga that the camposinas resort to where I’m told if they aren’t sold in a week they are killed.

I filmed them here –

Recommendation – The  Buddha Restaurant

Been twice now to the Buddha Restaurant. The food is so very very good, the best Indian restaurant we have ever visited in the area. The food is fragrant. There is a lunchtime menu for 8 euros which finishes at 4.00pm, even available on Saturdays The staff are from Nepal and are extremely polite and friendly. The Buddha is located on the main road at Penoncillo adjacent to the motor bike shop. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

If you like Indian food you will not be disappointed. Do try it.

What’s on Nerja Players.  Tuesday 16th Feb.  

Dramatised Reading  “Not Fur Long” 6 30 pm for 7pm
Story telling or readings are the oldest form of entertainment. The roots of this art lie deep in the history of civilisation, dating back to an era when only a favoured few were literate, and shared their good fortune by reading aloud great stories, myths, legends, plays and poems. Dramatised readings demand skill on the part of the narrators and actors plus the listeners themselves to attain that wondrous quality of acceptance which Samuel Coleridge called “the willing suspension of disbelief”
“I have always loved stories” says our director, Peter Burch, “and this performance is part of an experiment to determine the future potential of this medium from an acting and audience viewpoint . I have taken a short story, written by Roald Dahl (part of his “Tales of the Unexpected”) and essentially adapted and staged it as a dramatised reading, enhanced by selected music links and appropriate sound effects. More about this I do not wish to add in case I give away the plot!”  “Not Fur Long” will be performed on stage by 9 people and will be presented in the Nerja Bridge Club in Castillo Perez on Tuesday 16th February 2016….do come along to sit back and enjoy the fruits of a master story teller.

Calling Americans in Torrox-Nerja

BuzzHi I“m Buzz Gillis and I’m from Boston,Ma.  I’m living in Torrox Costa until March 31st and would like to get together with my Ex-Pats vacationing/living here “Americano” neighbors.  I’m sure there’s a few of us here!

I met some “nice” New Yorkers among others just the other day at the Nerja Tennis Club so I know there’s a few of us over here this winter.

I’m thinking of getting together some morning this week for coffee and breakfast in Torrox or nearby Nerja.  If you are currently living in this vicinity would you please email me and come join my wife Clare and me for a coffee and a discussion about anything related to the USA (except religion and politics) and Spain or just to “shoot the breeze”.

It could be fun as well as a learning opportunity to share some of our Spain experiences together and learn from each other.

So email me and I’ll see what can be arranged for this week.

As the leading provider of care in the UK, we have a network of regional offices , managers and
trainers to support and develop our carers who are the heart of our business.
We are currently looking for Spanish based potential carers to work in the UK, whilst experience
can be beneficial it is not essential as you will be given full training.
Our Spanish based Live-in Carers find that, not only is Live-in care a rewarding career but it also
fits well with Spanish and UK lifestyles, as well as being in the UK for a few weeks supplementing
their income they also get to visit family and friends – its the prefect balance.

Recommendation – Que Tal

Wonderful new restaurant recommendation – Que Tal in Sayalonga.
We have eaten at Que Tal numerous times now.
Every meal has been exquisite.  Beautifully presented but also just as tasty.  It made me want to take photos.
So here is private link that I added to my website.  http://www.vetiverspain.com/que-tal.html
It is small with only 12 seats so you do need reservations.  681 040 976
The owners are Henning Kruse and his wife Astrid.  Great people.
Henning is a Michelin Star Chef.  Imagine that in Sayalonga?
This is a great addition to the wonderful restaurants we already have in Sayalonga.

Does anyone recognise this cat?    

Cat

He/she has been hanging around our house (Competa campo), doesn’t seem like the usual campo cat so thought it could be a lost pet.

Lovely cat, looks a bit grumpy in this picture but probably because my other

cats and dog keep chasing the poor thing.

Please contact Gill_sibson at Hotmail.com or call 722134349 if you recognise it.

Many thanks.

 

 

Talk Radio Europe

Due to continuous interference on existing frequency in the Axarquia area, TRE recently launched the new 105.5fm frequency.  However the launch of this new frequency is still a work in progress.

The time delay mentioned in a previous post when driving between Nerja and Malaga is due to the fact the new frequency is being sent via an internet stream which travels half way round the world before reaching our radios causing a delay of some 30 seconds.

When driving the signal automatically bounces between TRE’s 105.5fm and 91.5fm frequencies whichever is the stronger.

In order to solve this problem, TRE will be installing a new piece of equipment which will replace the internet stream.

This new unit will eventually mean no more delays and no more interruptions in the signal, and also a local advertising option for local businesses at local prices.  However the new unit needs to be tested and tweaked and whilst this is happening you may still experience annoying interference and breaks in transmission.

TRE apologises for the inconvenience, but we believe all will be sorted

over the course of next week.

Spanish Driving Test – easily done…..

I took my Spanish driving test in English about 6 years ago and arranged everything through AutoEscuela Nerja.  They sold me a rules of the road book in English and I was able to practice on their computers in English.  I only had to ask for the written test in English when I got to the testing room at Trafico in Malaga.  But the practical test was all done in Spanish so I was glad my instructor had put me through the paces in Spanish around the streets of Malaga beforehand.  Good luck with the tests.

Cheers,

Recommendation – Driving Licence Renewal –

(Note – this is not taking the actual Driving Test Examination)

To the person who is looking for a driving licence test in English.  No doubt some of the staff at the test centres will speak English but don’t be afraid if they don’t.

The test consists of the simplest medical exam (blood pressure, eyesight, hearing etc) and a hand/eye coordination test taken on a computer.  If you have no Spanish all will be revealed with gestures and pointing!

Regards,

Phil (Cacin)

 

 

What’s on Re: Caminito Del Rey

It is said that the Caminito will be privatised on 1st April and a lot of people I’ve spoken with want to do this walk before then. However, although entry to the walk is free it seems that they are finding it impossible to book a place via the usual website. I have just done the walk with a company that charged 8 euros per person and got us in within a week (entry and guide only). Also there is an agency in Nerja offering entry and guide plus transport to and from El Chorro/Ardales for 30 euros.

Not sure if you can publish details but for your info they are:

Tour River – 8 euros per person – info@tourriver.com

Viaje Verano Azul – 30 euros per person – Calle Castilla Perez, Nerja

What’s On- Intercambio – El Piño,Torrox Park

Students from Academia de Idiomas Torrox Pueblo- Intercambio at restaurante “El Pino” near Camping El Pino in Torrox Park

 

We’re learning Spanish in the “Academia de Idiomas Torrox “ and are very pleased with our teacher, Maria Nieves. She is doing her very best to take away our fear to talk in Spanish and she teaches us the verbs and other grammar to improve our basic knowledge.

We would like to have even more conversations in Spanish and that’s why we’re organizing an “intercambio” Spanish-English.

Some of us are native English speakers and the others speak English as well.

We are looking for more native Spanish people, to participate at the “intercambio”. So, if you have native Spanish friends or other friends speaking Spanish, please invite them to come!

We’ll meet for the first time on Tuesday the 23rd of February  at 6.P.M.

You can confirm by mail to: annecoleta @ hotmail.com

Today at 1000, Beach Sweep! Hope to see you! Torrox Costa

Have you ever said, “Spain has beautiful beaches, but look at all the trash?”  I have!

LET’S do something about it!

Calling all clean beach lovers…Join me this Saturday at 1000 at the lighthouse entrance on Torrox Costa to pick up trash from the beaches.  BRING trash bags, rain gear, and money for a snack at one of the chiringitos after.  All are welcome.  Stay for as long or as short as you wish.

Please bring you ideas about other beaches that need help.

Contributing to a positive landscape is not only good for the land but is beneficial to your health and wellbeing.

If you arrive late, just go a bit further east or west and hopefully you’ll find some other Beach Angels.

Questions?  Contact me at 697 38 59 53.  Karen

 

 

Spanish Driving Test – in English ?

Game of Bridge in Competa ?

Hi, I am in competa for 3 weeks and would like to play bridge if possible.

Does anyone know of any games happening around Competa area that I could join?

Please contact by replying to jaburrows33 @ gmail.com.
Talk Radio Europe.

A few weeks ago I started to get Talk Radio Europe back on my car radio after an absence of over a year due to the near continuous breakthrough of another station which made it impossible to listen to this station when on the move, now I can get TRE all the way from Malaga to Nerja ( on the A7).

The only problem now is that the program being broadcast repeats sections of itself every minute or so.

I have put this down to TRE having more than one transmitting aerials that are not synchronised. This repeating sections glitch does not occur on my radio at home or on their web broadcast, its only in the car.

Am I the only one getting this glitch, is it my car radio on the blink or are there others out there being driven slowly insane.

I will copy the responses to TRE.

Replies to DigameXtra please

Thanks in advance H

RecommendationB&B Casa Magel for the Caminito del Rey

We recently stayed at Casa Magel while visiting the Caminito, as well as the area’s other attractions: Lobo Park, El Torcal and the Fuente de Piedra.  Maggie and Elio were very generous with their time in obtaining tickets for the Caminito as well as knowledgeable about the area.  Our room was spotless and Maggie’s breakfasts firstclass – and very good value.

BBC Look North – Opinion

Interesting to note that the BBC are only looking to interview people who would intend to vote to leave the EU, and those who have no interest in the outcome of the vote.

It seems they are not interested in the views of those who would vote to stay in the EU.

Justice or Not ?

You ask the question if you should pay for a Police officers incompetence, but in fact you are not. Assuming the fine for the offence was €500 at the time of the offence, then you are paying for your action of speeding, not his action of giving you the wrong amount. However all is not lost, if you want to argue. Getting up the nose of the police though is possibly not wise.
You could ask to see the evidence you were committing an offence that warrants a €500 fine.
You could write back asking if there was a 50% discount on the €500 for prompt payment, you gave evidence of prompt payment so if there is then you only owe €150.
You could ask which legal statute allows them to reissue a fine that has already been paid in a previous financial year. If they can quote the statute then you will need to pay, but I suspect they can’t do it.
In fact you could make them work so hard for the money they give up, but there is the risk they will remember you and take the “arrogante inglés” down at the next opportunity.

Just on the subject of Kindling & the  Warning….

It is quite true that charcoal used indoors can be dangerous! only recently a couple died because they took their BBQ inside their caravan  died as a result from the toxic fumes from the charcoal! so not to be recommended at all to burn charcoal indoors at all.

Services – Ears Syringing

(1)

I have recently had my ears syringed at Clinica Rincon, Torre del Mar.

Branches also in Nerja and Rincon de la Victoria.

They use a dry suction method rather than water as in the health centers.

€72 for both ears, probably less with private medical insurance.

It is necessary to book an appointment.

I was very satisfied.

The weather forecast for Sunday is not too good and after trekking all the way to the market last week and finding it had been cancelled at short notice I don’t want to repeat.

Is there someone I could contact either by phone or

email before we set off to confirm that it will be taking place?

Thanks folks.   pamsamme @ gmail.com

Wanted – Low wattage bayonet bulb

During the storms a couple of weeks back the lightning blew up a number of our light bulbs, one being in my UK Tiffany light. I always prefer to use a low wattage bulb but cannot find the bayonet fitting ones here. I have looked in Dunnes (who don’t seem to stock them) and Russells (they only had the old 100w ones) and a number of Chinese bazaars to no avail. I am looking for a small (equivalent to ‘candle’ style and size) low wattage (around 8w) bulb if anyone can help? Barbara

Justice or Not ?

In April 2015 I was pulled up by the police for a motoring offence, “fair cop governor” as I was guilty of the offence.                                                                                   I was fined on the spot, 200 euros reduced by 50% if paid within 20 days.                 This I paid within the deadline.                                                                                             My life went on.                                                                                                                                   In September 2015 I received a fine for the same offence this time for 500 euros less the 100 I had paid.                                                                                                                I appealed to the traffic authorities and received a reply in January 2016 to the effect that the policeman who gave me the fine way back in April 2015 had made a mistake and the fine should have been 500 euros, not the 200 euros I was originally fined.                                                                                                                                                     Is this Justice?  Should I have to pay for a policeman’s incompetence?  AC.

A word of warning… Archez Parking

Today I was fined for parking by the recycling bins in Archez by a

motorcycle policeman while I did the recycling.

I was on the wrong side of the road facing the wrong way as there

were several cars parked there also, maybe that was it.

The policeman was very polite.

Anyway just be careful when parking there.

Inheritance Tax.
Has anyone who paid the increased non-resident inheritance tax had it refunded in line with the European ruling?  I have read all the information online etc so I only want to know if anyone who has applied has had it back.
The legal representative who dealt with all the paperwork etc when someone dies, including the inheritance tax has told me “Nobody has got any money back from the tax office . I think they will never
pay this amount back”,

when I questioned if there had been any progress in claiming the tax back.
I have searched online and there are lots of reviews online for certain companies who have dealt with the refunds, however I am always weary of websites who have numerous recommendations praising their service as we all know this data can be manipulated.
I am hoping that Digame can come to the rescue once again with genuine experiences.  All replies via Digame Extra please.
Thanking you in advance for the replies.

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
