Services Available-Solution for Electricity supply problem

Many times, when there is a storm (thunder/lightning), the supply will often trip out, it is always the main switch (RCD/RCB) “Interruptor diferencial in Spain” in the consumer unit that trips.  When you are away, you need a continuous service in fridge, alarm, swimming pool, that requires a continuous electricity supply.

In this case, it is possible to install a

Self-reclosing RCCB to ensure service continuity.electricity

Recommendation Needed-Car Insurance

Any recommendations on companies to insure my newly Spanish-plated Mini Cooper S?   Many folks have suggested Linea Directa to me, but much to my surprise, I was told by their agent that they could not insure a Mini Cooper except as a second car!

(Curious to know what that’s about, but finding someone who will cover it, at a reasonable cost is far more important.)

Replies to me directly (macnmum at  gmail dot com  or via Digamextra.  Thanks!

What’s on-   Shhhhush – Torrox has a Theatre

Having lived in Torrox Pueblo for four years we know there is a theatre (its hidden down the side of the senior school in Isaac Albeniz, Rabatilla ….so not actually in the pueblo or the Costa), but apparently the Ayuntamiento has no interest in promoting any programme of activity which might appear there.
On Saturday 2nd April there was an excellent evening of “el tango y la chanson” performed by four accomplished musicians. The audience? There were eleven of us!
Were there posters in the village, Costa, El Morche? No
Were there posters in the tourist offices? No
Was there a listing on the Ayuntamiento’s official site or in town hall office?  No
Or the local town radio? No
Is it the truth that the Ayuntamiento doesn’t know, or care, what to do with its 7.000,000 plus ‘cultural buttonhole’?
Oh by the way we read of the concert on the site of a Malaga based booking agency!

Maybe the reason there is no promotion of activities in Torrox is because, over a year ago the Ayuntamiento removed the only three notice boards in the village…..and never replaced them so now anyone hoping to ‘catch’ an event needs to ‘know’ through the local drums where things are!
Asking a local usually brings the response “it’s where it was last year”.
Come on Torrox, _ poner en sitio los tableros de anuncios …..ahora!
