Labrador Found !

labrador FOUND

Does anyone recognise this 8-10 month old female Labrador cross.

She was picked up from the Zafarraya road near Pilarejo but no-one in that area knows her.

She is not micro-chipped (and is not the Labrador lost from Periana).

She is currently in kennels in Puente Don Manuel but if no-one claims her within 10 days then Axarquia Animal Rescue will be looking to rehome her.

In the meantime can anyone offer her a foster home?

She is very friendly and obviously used to being in a home.

Please share and help her to be reunited with her owners,

they must be missing her.

Please contact axarquia-rescue@hotmail.com

Supermarket Muggings.

I sent the report in last week after one of our owners at our Urbanization was himself mugged with his wife on arrival in Nerja having arrived from the UK, picked up a rental car at the airport and then stopped off for their Supermarket shop before they stopped at the main car park mid afternoon.

On checking with the local Police I was informed that a similar incident had happened 3 days earlier with a couple from Estepona.

Same sort of scenario. Apparently it has happened before but this seems to be a new spate by a new gang. Our owners lost all their cards, passports, cash and got a good hiding into the bargain.

Being careful is the best advice, being alert and looking out for anybody following you is the only way to defeat these bast**ds and do as i recommended earlier.-Drive directly to the local Police if you think you are being followed with a good a description as possible – and their car registration No. and leave the rest to the police

Services Needed   Advice needed re Electricity
We have lived in the campo outside Competa for 14 years and in general the electricity in the house has behaved itself.  Yes we have the usual power cuts in bad weather and sometimes when we have too many appliances running simultaneously the master trip switch goes off.  Recently, in winds that are stronger than a stiff breeze, with no appliances running, the master trip switch goes off.  We have had an extremely competent Spanish electrician check the house.  He patiently went through every socket and junction box putting things right.  Is it possible that the wind is disturbing the supply to the house in some way and do I need to speak to Endesa.  Please reply to Diagamextra as others may have similar problems.

Recommendation Needed Cattery

Can anyone please recommend a good cattery within a 15 kilometre radius of Competa.

Recommendations –  Modelo 720 information


I am using a local lawyer to submit my Modelo 720 before the end of the month, as I expect many others are. My lawyer has told me that one information field requires a reference number for my UK Santander bank account.

He said it is like an NIF number and is printed on letters. Well I have asked the bank for this reference number and they don t know about it. The lawyer is not answering my emails and phone calls so I am getting desperate to find out what this reference number is. Can anyone who has been through this process help?



Mat I recommend the blog site http://jullastres.es/wordpress/?p=718 as an excellent source of information on the modelo 720.  If your question isn’t answered you can get a reply from him quite quickly. Ron



Recommendation Smart Phone Technique

I can’t help noticing that all those smart people with smart phones take wonderful pictures.  The technology is very seductive but when it comes to pressing the ‘filming’ button, geography goes astray and we are presented with a video in portrait mode – as if looking through a doorway. Now no one wants to watch films this way round – and until our eyes are repositioned vertically in our head, TV’s mounted on end and cinema screens the same, this is not a success for the future.  So, giving away trade secrets here – just turn the phone sideways in what we can call ‘landscape’ mode instead of ‘portrait’.    (I’ll be out of a job at this rate…….)                   Chris Seeba Films
