– “Pokémon Go” has become the hottest iPhone and Android game ever. Many gaming and tutorial websites have offered tutorials recommending users download Pokémon Go from a non “Google Play website” link. Security researchers warn that many of these online tutorials are linked to malicious versions of the Pokémon Go app that installs a backdoor on Android phones, enabling hackers to compromise a user’s device completely.

Recommendation-Alioli Restaurant

Something we often smother under the taste of our restaurant meals is service, Service with a smile, an interest and sincere desire to make sure everything is just right for you. A genuine caring and a warmth from Carmenita at AliOli in Competa on Vendimia Plaza.

It´s a greasy spoon with culture and gourmet food, vegan and vegetarian. Carrmenita speaks Indonesian, Dutch, Spanish, and knows how to make what you like and keep it cheap, too. The rmenu del dia, including postre, are under €10.

You can ask for the Black Ader series on the TV and laugh your arse off while eating and enjoy spicy or whatever kind of spicy food you want.

It´s all fresh, healthy, creative, vegetarian and vegan. It´s the go to restaurante for new people, new and healthy food that tastes great.

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”

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.
