Searching Digamextra Archives

I have received many emails asking about this subject.

I too find it difficult to search for previous entries. Given that I also delete all emails once the morning’s Digamextra is finished (my Poor In-Box!) I try lots of way – with very poor results.

Anyone out there with suggestions for an easier Searching Tool please?

Recommendation  – Pool, Garden and Construction Services

Malcolm and his team from Pool,Garden and Construction Services, have now completed 6 jobs for us, from lopping the top off a tree that was near to power lines to removing and replacing coping stones on our very irregular shaped pool.

They came when they said they would, arrived on time and cleaned-up behind themselves.

Prices were very reasonable, we even had a refund, as materials were cheaper than expected.

Malcolm can be contacted on: 625911953 or on his facebook page.

Thanks – Malcolm and boys,

Paul and Mary P.

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

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.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

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. 

New 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.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
