Subscription Problem Solved – Thanks

Well that’s amazing! I contacted Tesco last night and asked them to ‘white list’ Digamextra. I received an auto response and this morning have 2 copies of the daily blog sent to the 2 registered email addresses – one of which is not a Tesco address!

Thanks for your help DoctorLaptop!



Two Stray Puppies – Need A Good Home pics

dogs01 dogs02 dogs03We have two stray puppies, a brother and sister, that look like a form of Setter (but my wife and I are not experts). They wandered onto our property a couple of days ago and deserve to have a good home. As we have gotten to know them we’ve learned they would make ideal pets. They don’t bite or nip, are very even tempered and sweet-natured, love and trust people, and are great around children (including our own toddler, who will be sad to see them go). They also appear to be quite trainable. As you can see they are quite skinny and could use a proper vet to look them over. They don’t appear to have any serious issues that we can see beyond ticks, but we’ve only had them a few days.

Sadly, we cannot keep them for various reasons and are looking for someone to give them the home they deserve. Please get in touch ASAP if you are interested. We are located in the Salobrena area. Thanks

Rental Long Term Needed-

Are you currently renting out your property on a short-term basis, but perhaps getting tired of the hassle of continual changeovers?
We are still looking for a detached house with 3 beds, 2 baths, fitted kitchen, pool and fenced garden. Location? Probably in the campo but we’d love to be closer to the coast and anywhere between Nerja and Rincón.

Recommendation Information for migraine sufferers:

If you suffer from migraines and have not yet tried trigger therapy
(myofascial pain treatment) I would like to recommend Mark Shurey who
is an osteopath and can be reached through Mar Y Salud clinic (Paseo
Marítimo el Morche 4, 29793, El Morche, Málaga tel:952 532 065).

I have been under the care of several neurologists, physiotherapists
and even psychiatrists for migraines and have for the past 5 years
tried just about everything to little effect.

I was treated by Mark for half an hour 2 weeks ago and have been able
to report a significant reduction in frequency and severity of the

The therapy is non invasive and Mark’ s trigger point treatment may
well have a most positive impact on your migraine.

What’s on-Demonstration bronze casting 16 & 17 June 2016 Galeria Luz de la Vida, Competa

Bronze01 Bronze poster

Hi art-lovers,

From 12 till 18 June Dutch bronze-caster Daan van Neerven comes to Competa, Spain.

We’ll make moulds on little sculptures on Monday 13 & Tuesday 14 June.

At Wednesday a bus with 50 kids will come (from Alozaina, near Malaga) with 3 teachers for an ‘creative’ excursion.

Kids of age 15 will visit Competa especially to see the bronze casting process and to do 2 workshops. One painting workshop will be given by Danish Artist Eva Joensen, and one will be given by Dutch/ African Moira Mitchinson. She will teach them the beginner-steps in clay. It is an excursion organized by a teacher and me. Hopefully they will all enjoy the special day in Competa!

At Thursday 16 June & Friday 17 june there will be a demonstration of the bronze casting 2 times a day:11:30 & 13:30 p.m.

In the garden of the gallery. Address: Calle Laberinto 15 Bajo or Calle Antonio (stairs down to the garden)

Fancy doing a creative painting workshop? Let me know, and we can arrange something for a (little) group.

Since last week there is a new exhibition going on with art by Jo Dennison, Eva Joensen, Christa Hillekamp, Paz Sanz, Frank Biemans, Saad Ali & Lieuwke Loth (see also the attachment). Worthwhile a visit!


Welcome, 16 and or 17 of June! or another time!
