What a Success !


AAR/RBL Fundraiser to Mini Hollywood 21/22nd May. Not only did we have a fantastic time, with great company, we raised 180e. That’s 90e for each Charity. RBL will put theirs direct into the Poppy Appeal, and 90e will go towards buying a ‘Chip Reader’ for AAR.. Thank you to everyone that came, and for being so generous. Liz & Sam xx



Cats in Archez

Having just read the anonymous and venomous article about the Mayoress of Archez trapping cats with a view to killing them I feel that a riposte is required.

I have no particular attachment to Mari Carmen Moreno Cordoba, the Mayoress nor to disease and cancer ridden feral cats or other animals.

I do, however, dislike being surrounded and clawed at by the (lets be polite and call them ) feral cats every time I visit Archez.

I dislike having to wend my way carefully between their deposits on the roads and paths. I dislike having cats visit my property and dig up plants that I have bought and they destroy.

I dislike having to clear their droppings from my patio. I think you will get the picture.

I have no wish to harm the feral animals, but, and here’s the but… there are too many! Something must be done to control the numbers. If all the animal lovers out there are willing to feed them, and yes they are fed by many which encourages the growth in their population, then instead why don’t they catch them, give them a home, get them to the vets, get them neutered, sterilised etc  and begin to solve the problem.

Why write a vindictive attack on a Mayoress, who did not make this decision in isolation  (implied by the anonymous writer 23/5/16).

The Mayoress is simply doing what needs to be done as the problem is now endemic. So, let’s have a challenge if you don’t want the current action to be repeated until the problem is solved – instead of writing malicious dirges and feeding the feral population – do something positive to solve the problem and get them off the streets.

I look forward to the diatribes that will now no doubt be directed back to me.

Services Needed –Internet Provider

Just over two years ago, I purchased a small wireless 3G router with the Internet being provided by Midas Telecom in Fuengirola.

At the time, it was possible to switch the service on and off when I went back to the UK (I don’t live in Spain full time) by paying a small re-connection charge.
This is now not possible with Midas Telecom, so I am looking for another provider who can offer this service at a reasonable price.

I would be grateful for any recommendations – I live in El Morche.

What’s on –Affordable Art in Frigiliana

Captain Slog, stardate 28th. May 2016.
Space is still the final frontier, but the away-team landed today and boldly entered a world with no space at all – Joe Boyle’s art studio in La Molineta, Frigiliana.
Wall-to-wall paintings and sculptures left no room for further creations and we found the artist almost numb with frustration and hidden behind a pile of canvases unable to be displayed.
Under our Prime Directive  we were compelled to help him – to bring space to his walls and open, once more, the portals of creativity for the sake of future generations.
We suggested the following:-
That this Saturday, 28th. May should be an open-day from 10.00 to 14.00 with 20% shaved off the already low prices, and 10% of the total takings given to Cudeca.
La Molineta can be found on the main Nerja-Frigiliana road, half a kilometer before Frigiliana, and near to a fantastic tapas bar.
The Federation has provided wine with which to browse through the works (also blood-wine – a well-known cure for the Klingons) at absolutely no obligation to buy.
We urge you to beam-down and to go where many people have gone before, but (just lately) not enough.

I am reluctantly selling my Nissan Micra 1000cc SE 2002, 5 door hatchback right hand drive petrol.
