Missing, believe snatched in Torrox Campo on the 5th April around 13:00.

Please look out for our beloved Gin, a small Podenca, light brown with white paws and a white chest.

Windows 10 Upgrade – Warning From DoctorLaptop

Naythan DrLaptop logo 1 smallPlease remember that just because your computer downloaded the Windows 10 Upgrade that does not mean your computer is Windows 10 capable. Even if you go to the Windows 10 Upgrade Advisor site and pass the test you are not assured of a successful upgrade! You must go to your computer manufacturer’s site and locate the page for your specific model. If there is a warning that the manufacturer has not yet tested Windows 10 for your model, or any other statement suggesting that they do not support the upgrade or provide the required drivers, do not do the upgrade! Even if it appears to succeed problems will likely surface very soon. The Windows 10 Upgrade, once installed, can be rolled back to the previous system within 30 days only. Look at the Recovery settings if you find yourself in this situation, where you will find the rollback function.

Happy computing. Email me for inquires: doctorlaptop @ gmx.com

Sponsors Needed

I am currently looking for small local business owners that may be interested in sponsoring me in the events I am taking part in throughout 2016. I am entering various obstacle races across Spain in order to raise money for Cudeca Charity.

This weekend I will be entering a rugby 7s torneo held at the Malaga University playing in the Veterans Team where we currently hold the Champions title. Anyone is welcome to come and watch. The first race being a Spartan Super which consists of 13km across rough terrain including various obstacles such as rope Climbs, Mud Pits, Monkey bars, fire pits, freezing waters, black out tunnels and much more. This race which I am training hard for will be on the 28th May in Madrid. Also throughout the summer I will be taking part in beach summer Rugby tournaments across the South of Spain. All details can be found on my Face Book Page Bex Spartan Mud Runner and through the Cudeca link which is open for anyone to contribute towards such a worthy cause. If you have a small business and would like to Sponsor me throughout the year please send me an email. In return for your donations, You may place the business logo on my Tee-shirt which will be worn during races, photos with local papers , and mentioned in any radio interviews. Also You may advertise on my Face Book page and on my information boards which will be placed in Sponsors locals and with Cudeca. http://www.cudeca.org/indexa.aspx?secc=/bc/events&ids=&idss=&ac=am&id=664&start=&cdia=&cmes=&canio=&tt=&idi=eng#.Vuu31dLhAdU Face Book> Bex Carecafe Page> Bex Spartan Mud Runner Email> comunidadayudarapida.es AT gmail.com Thank you all for reading this and hope to hear from many of you soon.

Recommendation- for Con Mari bar/restaurant in Torre del Mar 

I would highly recommend eating at Con Mari if you are in Torre del Mar. We have been on several occasions both when it was situated on the seafront and since it has moved to bigger premises one road back on Calle Copo next to El Faro burger bar. The food is excellent, consistently good (something we don’t find with many restaurants) and the presentation is superb. They also do a 6.50 € menu del dia all day which is different each time we go and we feel it just can’t be beaten for both flavour and value for money.

(behind Repsol garage) on Thursday 7th April at 3pm. any questions phone Molly 605817975

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