TAIL Torrox. Sept-October

Digamites might have friends or family who would be interested in an opportunity to work as a supervisor at TAILTorrox- our dog refuge.

The person would obviously have to like dogs and be confident about handling them.

You would be involved in the supervision of volunteers, as well as helping with the general running of the refuge and helping to organise activities for fund raising.

We currently have a team of residents who volunteer and who take part in regular meetings

Food and accommodation is provided and a minimum of 25 hours a week with two free days.

Some Spanish language an advantage but not essential.

It is a great environment to work in with volunteers of all nationalities and would also suit someone who might be looking to re – locate and improve their Spanish.

If you would like to find out more, please contact Sue on 0034 629501173 or 0034 952539370 or email

susanasherbs @ hotmail.com. You can also see us on facebook TailTorrox



Endesa Scam – plus….

In today’s post on the subject, the writer suggested that Edessa’s database had been hacked.

It may be true but I have received one of those scam emails, (it was in my spam folder and I ignored it) and I am not an Endesa customer. So it could be from another source but vigilance is sensible in this deceitful age we live in.

Services Needed –Pool Table to Recover

I would like my 7′ pool table recovered and wondered if anyone could advise on a person able to do the job, competently.

I have looked at one site on line and it would appear that it would cost me over €400 before paying a travelling fee.

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”

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPG or JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

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
