Update on the Puppies

pup02 pup01Good news – two of these six puppies have been promised homes but we still need new owners for four otherwise it could be the dog pound and no future.

See the latest film of them at their most appealing but not if you can’t avoid temptation !  Hard to refuse.  Please spread the word to your friends as well and remember they can travel all over Europe !

Shingles Vaccination 

Glad you asked!!  I inquire a year ago to my Spanish primary care physician and he said that that vaccination doesn’t exist in Spain.  I know it exists in the USA.  So I’m eager to read if it can be obtained locally.  Thank you for inquiring!!   norma2kk @ aol.com


Fish & Chip Baby Charity ??

We have had a large bin bag dropped outside the shop full of knitting with a note saying it is for the Fish & Chip Baby charity. No name has been left as to who has left it. Unfortunately, we have had no dealings with this charity for over 5 years and no longer have any contact as to who to pass it onto. Is there anybody who knows who is dealing with this as someone has clearly spent a lot of time knitting?

Thank you.

Services – Home Care

Would you like somebody to keep an eye on your property whilst your not in Spain.

Many people have concerns about leaving properties empty for long periods of time.
We are a retired English couple living in the Torrox area, who  for a very modest fee can provide this service.
We already have several clients who are now friends who are now less anxious about leaving their properties. On an average visit we will stay for an hour, open windows and doors and air the house. Check inside and out for any damage caused by storms, wind or electricity failures. Water plants, and anything else you might need. We also provide cleaning at very modest rates.
There is no contract or obligation you decide how often you would like us to visit.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please do get in touch

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.

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
