White Lines in Competa – Reposte

I would like it to be known that the query from David G. regarding the white demarcation lines in the Competa plaza did not come from me.

I would not wish that those who know me might think that I was incapable of approaching the Mayor directly, or worse, that I was remotely interested in the matter.

To be constructive, it would be helpful if people could put an identifiable name to  their mail.David  Garner


The bars and restaurants in the village need to make as much money as they can during the summer months, thus enabling them to stay open throughout the winter , which is of great benefit to locals and winter visitors alike. I think that a little tolerance should be shown, and minor inconvenience at this time of year a small price to pay. So, David, please don’t make a fuss. There is a Spanish saying “No te ahogues en un vaso de agua” which, although not a literal translation, means “don’t sweat the small stuff “!     Steve       Competa

(Editor writes – Excellent reposte Steve…. Which closes this subject. Jane)

Found abandoned at the roadside this lovely kitten would like a good home. He has been to see the vet and now wants to have an owner. He is very friendly and loves attention and playing with his toys. He is about 7-8 weeks old. Can you give him the home he deserves? Please call or email if you would like more information or to see him.

TC-ME smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

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”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

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
