Holiday WiFi ?
I have friends holidaying in Torrox for a month soon and they are seeking a temporary wifi service. It was suggested to them that they could rent a portable wifi dongle device from Nerja WiFi. Has anyone had experience of this provider, who could advise on its suitability, good or bad?

“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.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
