Advice re Protecting Yourself from Distraction Thefts

It’s not so much the speed and daring of the robbers, in 99% of the time it’s a distraction technique that has been pulled to carry out the dastardly deed. These people are professionals, they’ve honed their skills to a fine point (some under threat, even physical violence) and rarely work alone. Most victims don’t actually remember the distraction afterwards. Remember that on a busy beach there are others around that could witness the theft and they also have to be distracted, so they can’t warn the victim.

Just as you are completing your ATM withdrawal, who could ignore a heavily pregnant woman a few feet away, gripping her belly, groaning and going down on one knee. A look of anguish on her face, imploring for help…. (I’m getting a bit theatrical here!)…. Meanwhile the person behind you has noted your PIN and swopped your card for a similar one. Do you always check the card you put in is the one you’ve got back? Would you remember, hours or even days later, that glass bottle being accidentally dropped and smashed just to your left? (The card slot is always on the right-hand side of the ATM). Stay lucky!

Cheers, Keith, Travelin’ wotsapninatgmaildotcom

 

Wine Making Time ??

It is now nearing the time for the grape harvest. I have purchased a small wine press.

Can Digamites give me some advice. Do I simply wash and press the grapes or do I also need to add some form of additives. Additionally best way to store.

Photos Stolen – Please Help

Please Please at Velez market last Thursday I fell victim to the unscrupulous pickpockets

They stole my wallet even though-  in my opinion-  I was ultra careful – obviously not!!

I am not overly concerned about cards and cash as all these are replaceable and  were cancelled straight away. The wallet contained some irreplaceable photos of my wife who passed away last year. If you should find a black leather wallet PLEASE contact me.

Thank you John

Services Available All change at Sugar & Spice

We’ve been eagerly awaiting a large delivery of giftware, garden decor and furniture from 2 new suppliers , its arrival over the next few days it turns out will  coincide with our first delivery of Moroccan decor since Ramadan.  Exciting times!

We were already wondering how we were going to cram it all in and then a teeny tiny problema struck in the form of some major building works in some surrounding properties. It became apparent on day one that we were going to need to move at very least the fabrics, cushions and carpets out of the furniture showroom

After a frantic morning of activity we decided on a plan that involved opening a second area of the furniture showroom, to increase the show space and opening up the ground floor of our house to show the soft furnishings and a selection of furniture. For the time being we have increased our display area to include 7 separate rooms.

So in spite of the rather scary looking dumper at the end of the street, we are open for business as usual and there is more than ever to see. The builders have very kindly left the biggest space they can to walk past the digger, if however, you’re sporting a buggy, or wearing white you might prefer to access the shop via one of the parallel streets.

We’re thrilled to see so much investment going into our community, it’s great to see new people arriving and old buildings getting a new lease of life and although it’s a little inconvenient as Mahatma Gandhi said “Adversity is the mother of progress.” and it will be well worth battling the dust to see the great new spaces that we have created.

I will be updating the Sugar and Spice website  www.sugarandspice.es and Facebook page www.facebook.com/sugarandspice.competa with details of new arrivals.

For those of you with an interest in decor we have also created a new Facebook page www.facebook.com/lacasabellaspain. We will be using this platform not only to promote new products but to market some great special offers that we plan to roll out over the coming months. So please” like” us, invite your friends, family and anyone else to “like” us and in return we’ll continue to scour the planet for fabulous furniture and furnishings.

Thanks to every one for their on going support, we look forward to seeing you in the shop or online.

Warning – Be Wary on our Beaches

A warning to all beach goers and families, yesterday a friend of ours lost his mobile  phones and wallet on Penoncillo beach. His wife was sitting on a sun bed reading when the robber must have come up within a metre of her and took two I phones and a wallet out of a bag. The owner of the bag had just gone into the sea so it was only a couple of minutes when nobody was right next to the bag.

Please warn all your friends. Don t leave anything valuable unattended for even a minute. These robbers are so fast and daring

charming lady and excellent at her job.

Recommendation Removals- Purias Impact

I know many Digamites have recommended many local removals, I have a special one who moved me from Competa to Cambridge 6 years ago.  All furniture was export wrapped, no matter how large the units (I had alot of furniture) and so many delicate items.  Purias Impact from Murcia were so professional, polite and efficient both inSpain and in the UK.  I cannot recommend them highly enough.  There was not one breakage of a delicate item, or a scratch on the heavy furniture.  Storage was not a problem and they fitted everything in with my timescale.  You can contact them for enquiries either by phone on 0034 968 654 667 or info@advancemoves.com   You can check out the website yourself at Advancemoves.  Good luck. Maryanne, Cambridge.

RecommendationExcellent building work

We have had Competa Properties carrying out building work for us. The men arrived on time, worked hard all day and the job was completed on time. To our delight today when returning home we found cleaners had been and all the areas that had become dusty had been cleaned (a job I was not looking forward to). It is good to find a company that obviously takes pride in its work. A Gold Star should be awarded.    Norma

What was On Nerja 41 club attended Almijara Bowls Club 

golf01

Members of Nerja 41 Club (Ex Round Tablers) and our ladies spent a very enjoyable evening at the Almijara Bowls Club just off the Capistrano roundabout in Nerja.  After some excellent instruction from members of the Bowls Club we all blamed the heat for our poor performance.  A great evening of fun and fellowship was followed by a meal and Club Meeting with our ladies at the Nerja Club Hotel.  Chairman Jim Skinner was very pleased with the outcome of the evening and has plans for many more interesting and different evenings during his year as Chairman.

Nerja 41 Club meets twice a month.  On the first Thursday of the month we have our MUNCH BUNCH when we go out for a ‘menu del dia’ with our ladies and on the third Thursday of the month the members have an evening meeting and many of our ladies, who wish to, go out for a meal.  Most of our members are only in Spain for 3 to 6 months of the year so if any Ex Tablers would like to come along you can contact us via www.41clubnerja.org or ring Alfie on 626998626

Home Needed for Rescue Dogs

Rescued Dogs

Six years ago I rescued a week old puppy just before Christmas and then 3 years ago a second puppy abandoned left to die near where I work.
They have become great friends but unfortunately my circumstances are now changing, I cannot care for them anymore!
Many a day they spend happily in the garden but I now have to move and won’t be able to take them with me.
Is there anyone out there who would consider adopting these two dogs?
If you live in the campo and have room you will be rewarded with much love and affection! They are good with children.
Anyone able to offer these two dogs a home please contact me on 696120856 or email me at alieeila2014 @ gmail dot com.
I hope to hear from you soon…

 

Video of Dogs Needing Homes

I know that here in Spain we are suffering Dog Rescue Overload but ‘Every Dog has its day’ and it is time that Otto and Doggi found their proud new owners.  They are caged in a miserable place, and are uncared for and often not fed or provided the basics of living.  See my film here and consider if you are the one they have chosen !

Rescue Me https://youtu.be/Xe4Cx_v191g

Otto is the brown one and Doggi the white.  They both have good natures and respond well to good handling and love.  It is unlikely that they have had any of the basic veterinary care.

You are out there and you will know if you are the chosen one.

CG Tax 

In reply to the query regarding Capital Gains Tax – this certainly was the case 2 months ago when we put our house on the market. ie  Tax resident 3 years + and over 65.  Neither our solicitor nor estate agent have advised us differently.  If it is not the case any more I would ask how are we supposed to keep up with the ever changing laws etc?  Carol

 

Car Number Plate

A thank-you to all who replied and identified the photo of the car number plate I sent in to Digame.( Morocco region of Casablanca)

Digame is like a big human encyclopaedia, whatever one wants to know someone out there will be able to help, and a big thank-you to Jane who puts it altogether for us everyday to send out.

Puppies Need Homes  

puppy01puppy02

Milly was rescued and then found to be pregnant.

She gave birth to 6 healthy puppies on June 1st, 3 boys and 3 girls. We are keeping Milly and already have 4 other dogs so homes are needed for the pups.
Milly has a lovely nature and is medium to large. The pups may be large and are now 8 weeks old.

They have just had their first injection and are all healthy.
They all have different markings and colouring.

Two photos included to give an idea of colouration, please contact us if you need to see more.

One looks like a German Shepherd.

Missing Person Sought

My name is Eduardo, I am of Swiss origin and for this reason not familiar with DigameXtra. The idea to contact you comes from Elaine Jones. We would like to find a missing person.
Until a bit more than 4 years ago I was in close contact with an Englishman whose name is John. We were working in my garden regularly, installing irrigation systems and everything else. He and his lovely wife left the country and their plan was to stay in England.
About 2 months ago I met them by chance near Carraspite where they had lived. He promised to contact me, but unfortunately didn’t.
Georgette and I would so much like to meet them again in order to re-establish our relation. All I know is his first name John. He knows more than anyone else about plants and gardens.
My question to you people is whether you can help us to find them.
Any information is appreciated.
Thank you for your help and best regards
Georgette and Eduardo Fot

Tracing Origin of a Number Plate  

number plate

Hi. Could anyone help me identify this car number plate, I have seen this car twice now. I take a bit of interest in foreign car number plates, but try as I might can not ID this one. The letters are a J with an O underneath the bar of the J. I know its not Morocco so if any one can help could they please let me know.

Services Available- Holiday WiFi ?

A lot depends on what you want to do with your WiFi. If you do NOT want to watch TV online, and perhaps 2Gbytes is sufficient (Skype voice onl, e-mail, surf), then you probably already have everything you need.

A spare “Smartphone”, “iPhone”, any “Android” telephone or a 3G/4G router.

Go to The Phone House, or similar and get yourself a SIM card from the operator “Orange”.for 15 Euros you can fill it with 2Gbytes “Mobile Surf”. In the settings menu, select “WiFi Hotspot”and share your internet connection. You only need to enter the name of your WiFi network and give a password for connection. Then you can connect all your family’s surf tablets and home country mobile telephones without incuring overseas roaming charges in Spain.

Just be careful that the kids do not use up all the data on Youtube or Filmon.tv. When the money does run out you still have a slow connection, ok for e-mail for the rest of the month.

If you have a 3G/4G router at home then bring that and use the same SIM card in the router.

Be careful when you fill the card: you do NOT want telephone calls. but “Mobile Surf” only. If you don’t make it clear then you may get 15 Euros of phone calls and no surf. you will also need your passport or NIE number to get a SIM card.

If you will stay near a restaurant, club or library then you can often use their connection. If you see the network is available then go to the restaurant and have a beer, then ask for the WiFi password. They usually have an unlimited data agreement so it will not cost them anything, in fact it is good for business. Just be sure to use a firewall if you use such a network.

You can alternatively get a local Yoigo SIM card and that gets filled with 1GB data every time you put some money in it to make telephone calls. That will also give you local calls cheaper than your home phone roaming.

Services Available Psychological Support offered

Following on from Aiveen and the English Nurse’s post I would like to offer psychological / psychiatric support. I am a British qualified and registered clinical psychologist (UK & Spain) I am more than happy to offer free of charge help and/or advice. I worked for the NHS for 28 years before moving to Spain. When I first arrived I tried to offer my services on a voluntary basis whilst obtaining my registration in Spain. Not one organisation (including Cudeca) was interested at that time. The general consensus was that by offering my service for free I would be denying a Spanish psychologist a job. So I set up a private practice and have been busy ever since due to the lack of psychological support in this region. That is not intended as a criticism just an observation of the different emphasis on mental health services. So if anyone is feeling particularly desperate about their situation do contact me and I will try to help.

Responses – Capital Gains Tax

My advice is to be wary of all those well meaning people who will give advice in the best of faith, and this includes me.

Please seek advice from a UK Tax Expert.

Capital Gains Tax applies to the sale of all property, main residence or otherwise, and.in some cases you are given 100% tax relief (but it still falls under Capital Gains Tax), in others the amount on which tax relief is granted will vary.

It all depends on the individuals situation and history of living in and the use of the house. There are many rules, regulations.

For a good overview visit the UK Government web site given at the end of this message.

Please be wary of well intentioned advice, all house sales are subject to Capital Gains Tax and the myth that it does not apply to main residences is because in the majority of cases they are granted 100% tax relief, but in some cases tax has to be paid.

Please seek advice and read the below (this will also link you to other Govt. sites giving greater detail about Capital Gains Tax.

Good luck.

Recommendation –Car Air Comditioning Services

Others have already recommended Chris at cpaircon but we also would like to recommend him.  We went over to Chris’ workshop on the Torrox/Competa Road to have our RAV4 air con re-gassed.  Chris was extremely pleasant and did a thorough job.  He has all the equipment and all the knowledge.  He emptied, cleaned it of air and moisture and re gassed it, all for a very reasonable cost, we are so pleased to have our car air con fully operational especially now the weather is so hot.

A big thank you to Chris and a recommendation to use his service – he knows his stuff.  Chris also recommended the Pavo Real restaurant nearby for lunch, where we had an enjoyable and reasonably priced meal.

Capital Gains Tax ?

I used to think that if I’d lived in Spain as a resident for 3 years and was over 65 then I would not have to pay CGTax when selling my main residence. But I’m told that this is no longer the case. Can anyone clarify this for me please.

 Wonderful Initiative to Help People in Competa

(1)

Aiveen flagged up a need which I had discussed with a few relatives of patients /former patients but we were not planning to be ‘active ” until September.. ( yes,Aiveen I am already involved).

“Friends of Fernando”

Fernando passed away just a few months ago.Gaps in the “system” failed him..With apologies for being a bit previous…

Friends of Fernando’s  preliminary aims will be :

To provide a focal point for people who had  experienced a “loss” of any description through death/ ill health/ loss of self esteem/ burglary

Really any situation that knocks you sideways.

It’s a cuppa and a cake  twice a month .( people who just want to help are especially welcome too).

We hope that it will take off and people will get together and make friends and that people who join the group might be able  to bring talent to fund raise and move us in into a charitable status..

The aim is to have a group of “friends ” who will support each other through tough times, picking up the phone just to say “hello” means a lot./sharing information .There might be people who can give time to sit with someone ( I’m especially keen to meet an army / services veterans). if we can’t find the help voluntarily money could go towards paying for a taxi to bring a voluntary carer up the mountain or to pay for a carer to stay overnight at Cudeca to give a lone relative a break.

If you would like to be a ‘friend of Fernando ” please contact me. It’s not about pity it’s about proactive and practical..

I posted yesterday a heartfelt appeal on behalf of a friend struggling locally. I was right-you are all caring people! It will take me some time but I will respond to you all-so grateful! Many heads better than one for sure!

As I just said to someone in this grim dark world, where we know not what we are going to hear next we need each other more and more-without that we have nothing.

There but for the grace of God…

Thank you so much.

https://support.google.com/earth/answer/168344?hl=en

….and download v6.2 for Windows. Or Mac.

The latest version is v7.1.5.1557.1557 for Windows but it doesn’t seem to like Win10 for some reason?? Maybe DrLaptop can explain?

Cheers, Keith

History Lessons

Would the person who made this entry in a past issue please contact me.

“I wish that I knew more about the late Mediaeval period. I’ve been immersed in the 12th century for so long because it is filled with very colorful characters: Empress Maude, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Richard the Lionheart, Bernard of Clairvaux, Bernard de Ventadorn, Hildegarde of Bingen and so many more. Now I want to know more about the times of Richard III”.

Support Needed in Competa Please

Hi I have a friend living in the Competa area whose husband has cancer. She is looking after him at home. The toll it is taking on her is horrific and last time we spoke she was quite distraught. Worryingly so. I live in Nerja, no transport at the moment. I feel so helpless. He has been in hospital recently having tried to commit suicide so pretty grim. The same lady had a very bad year last year too having lost her Mum back in UK. She did join the Cudeca support group who meet once a month but she cannot risk leaving him alone. Of course she puts a brave face on things but inside she is crying. I fear for her.

If anyone can offer any advice or ideas on how I can help please contact me. Words help but sometimes sound so…. trite…needs action I feel even if only to talk to another human being, have someone make you a cup of tea or indeed open that bottle of wine!

I know you are a kind, caring bunch (well most of you!) so hoping to hear your thoughts perhaps through bitter experience.

If she sees this will go crazy-if so I apologise-desperate situations call for desperate measures! Love you.

Thank you

Recommendation Car Air Comditioning Services etc

Others have already recommended Chris at cpaircon but can we add our voice to that.  When our car was serviced at the beginning of the summer we asked the mechanic to check the air con, he did and added a regas to the bill.  When we next drove the car it was evident it was worse.  We went back and he claimed to fix it, still no joy.  Fearing a serious problem we thought we would get a second opinion from CPaircon – as recommended by Digamextra.  Chris turned up at our house, he has all the equipment and all the knowledge.  He told us there was not enough gas in the air con, and explained why there could be problems re-gassing the air con on our car, a Renault.

He emptied, cleaned it of air and moisture and re gassed it, all for a very reasonable charge. That was a few weeks ago, it is working brilliantly, possibly the most effective it has ever been and most welcome on these hot days.

A big thank you to Chris and a recommendation to use his service – he really knows what he is doing.

Recommendation- Tony Roam Removals

I would like to say a big thank you to Tony and the crew for the way in which they recently moved the contents of my Villa back to Spalding in the UK.

I was told by two other companies that I had between 25 to 30 cubic meters and that because of the size of the load it would probably go over the weight limit and that I might need two Luton vans.

When I spoke with Tony his estimate came in at a lot less even though I had made him aware of the other two quotes and my urgent needs to vacate my villa he calmly told me with careful and considerate packing he could condense it to below 20 cubic meters and because of the vans they use there would be no worries about the weight as they can move 3 tonne at a time.

On the day to suit my schedule they turned up on time with three men ready to do the work.

All I had to do was point and say as was the case on unloading three months later as unexpectedly I had problems with my property in the UK and could not move in on the proposed date.

Tony stored free of charge with no hassle in his UK warehouse.

I was eventually charged for 18 cubic meters 1,000 Euros cheaper than the lowest quote.

Thank you once again Tony for your Integrity. Also thank you to Ryan and Marc for all your hard work and tireless effort it was a pleasure to have met you.

Regards

Helene

Help Needed for Dog in Danger

Can anyone in the Torre del Mar area help a little female bodeguero type dog who is in heat at the moment and coming in and out of a neighbour’s garden as she pleases? The garden goes straight onto a road (not busy but cars do go down it) so everyone is terrified that she’s going to get run over (and/or pregnant…) I can’t take her in as I have a male dog and she needs extra special care as she is terrified of humans (although gradually getting better). She’s a bit of an escape artist too :(. If anyone can offer her a safe place until she is neutered (we and our neighbours have clubbed together to cover the cost) and beyond that if possible please let me know. Thank you and please share!                         Email – rhodes_jennie @ hotmail.com

 

Endesa Scam Warning 

I hope you can place this in the next Digamextra.

I found this on the official Endesa-website.

It is a warning regarding the fake emails and what to do if you

clicked on any link and your computer is affected…

Anna

We have detected a fraudulent campaign simulating Endesa notifications and inviting you to download the bill. Once the email has been opened, if you click on the link, you will be taken to a site containing malicious code (“a virus”), which blocks the personal files of computer users.

We have already warned our customers about this fraudulent campaign, which uses a supposed company bill as a decoy. If users download the content, all their personal files stored on their computer will be blocked and they will then be asked to pay a ransom to recover the files.

We are already carrying out the relevant actions to combat this software attack and we will keep you informed of any relevant updates in this regard.

 The Spanish National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE) is offering a service to help those affected by the fake Endesa bill virus.

In order to identify the type of virus and to verify whether the data can be recovered, the INCIBE recommends sending an email to incidencias@certsi.es and attaching two or three Word or Excel files (originally with a .doc or .xls extension) affected by the virus and which do not contain private or confidential information and larger than 1 MB. In addition, you will have to refer to the file that explains how to make the corresponding payment to recover the information.

 

 

Baby Ian’s Charity Raffle- Competa

I want to thank everyone who supported the recent raffle I organised for our Competa baby  Ian, who is suffering with Osteogenesis Imperfecta  (brittle bone disease)

As always the community of Competa and surrounding villages who so generously helped and I raised 555euros to help the baby and his family for his medical therapy and care.

Thank you also to the local businesses who once again gave raffle prizes;  Hotel Balcon, Competa,  Chica Loca, La Esquina de Miguel, La Taperia, Restaurante El Pampano,  Taberna Teteria Hierbabuena and local residents who kindly donated prizes;  Grace,  Juilie and Sandie.

Again, thank you everyone.

Kevin  Deavin,  Raffle Organiser.
