Supermarket Visit ends in Mugging….

You would think that a straight forward visit to the Supermarket would simply be just that. BUT there’s are gangs out there looking  for foreigners, preferably driving a rented car, doing their initial shop after arriving on a self catering rental holiday. They will watch you load up and then follow you to your Rental home and then pounce if the parking area is clear from onlookers. It has happened twice last week. Keep an eye out for this gang and if you think you are being followed on your way home from the Supermarket, write down their registration number and drive straight to the nearest Police station.




Transport Needed for Puppies please

I’m looking for a gentlemen or lady with a car to move a puppy.
I find two rehoming family to puppy.
First puppy (Family Murcia but sister in Granada) so:
Velez-Malaga – Granada OR Velez – Murcia OR Malaga – Granada (Casabermeja stop-minute)
Second puppy (Family in Badajoz) so:
Velez-Malaga – Badajoz OR Malaga – Badajoz (Casabermeja stop-minute)
Thnk you to contribute at this rehoming. Your help is very appreciate.
Pano Gorreferenciado – Advice Needed Please

Dear Digamigos, we own a finca in Cómpeta campo, and the Gerencia Territorial del Catastro demands to submit within 10 days:

“Plano de parcela georreferenciado o plano adaptado  a la cartografía catastral (preferiblemente obtenida de nuestra sede electrónica).”

We only have a “plano planimétrico” from 1996 that obviously doesn’t fit the criteria.

Has someone experience with this subject and knows the best way to handle it?

And can you recommend somebody to manage this in the short term?

Thanks in anticipation. Pls. answer to DigameXtra, it may be of general interest.


6 Puppy News….      

pup01 pup02Good news continues, no less than two puppies have gone to their new home today and another is waiting for the new owner to return from England.  This is a wonderful start and I’m hoping the remaining three will quickly find their new owners – come on, you are there aren’t you ?

Chosen – on their way

Responses –Shingles vaccination – available in Nerja


There is a clinic in Nerja called Clinica Cecilia in Calle Huertos, very close to the exit from Carabeo car park, its run by an American Doctor, Dr Paula Antony, they will administer the shingles vaccine.


Zostavax you can buy from Germany. It will cost 175,30 Euros plus the costs for the doctor.

The question is, if it is usefull to do it.. There are also side reactions

If you are over 60 years the possibility to get it is 3,3%. If you are vaccinated it falls to 1,6%.

The spaniards would say : No vale la pena !


Editor writes – This excellent information closes the DigameXtra file on this subject. Thanks to all, Jane


Recommendation –

In the land of sunshine, widespread corruption and senseless red tape, it’s refreshing to find a lawyer who is efficient, tells you in advance what his charges will be, does what he says he will do and in the time scale he sets out in a professional and pleasant manor. ? .

Having just been through the experience of selling our house and
about to buy another I can highly recommend Thomas Gant ( Lawyer ) of Competa

– Most impressed.  Barry & Pauline.

What’s on The Phoenix Club trip to Gibraltar on Fri the 6th May.

We have pick ups at at the A1 Garden Centre, Torre del Mar bus station and finally at Algarrobo Lidl at 08.30.  The bus is parked in Morrisons car park and we leave Gibraltar at 16.30.  Due to visa restrictions on entering Gibraltar, please advise if you are a non EU citizen when you book.  Also it is important to remember to bring with you your EHIC card, just in case, and passports are essential.  On the way to Gibraltar we stop to spend a penny and for coffee.Due to an increase in coach fares we have increased our prices by €1 and we would greatly appreciate if payment was made before the journey.  The price?  €12pp includes a €1 gratuity for the driver.  Children under 12 can join us for 1/2 price.   Still the best value on the coast!
Early booking is recommended if you like a particular place, as seat numbers are allocated on a first come, first served basis.  Plenty to see in Gibraltar apart from the shopping!

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”,

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 –

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
