Services Available- House Sitters

Couple, time served carpenter & small business owner looking for 2 month min house sit in Southern Spain 2016/2017 winter

We are a couple looking for the winter sun. Fred is a time served carpenter and with some assistance from me (Ele) we have renovated/ re-built 4 houses. Now it’s time for a rest! I have my own on-line business that leaves me time to walk your dogs, look after your garden and grounds and keep your home clean and tidy. Fred is handy in every area so feel free to ask about any work you may have. We are looking for a long “sit”. Six to eight weeks approximately . We are available from December 2016 until May/June 2017.

DoctorLaptop’s Windows 10 Info Update-Millions of Webcam Failures
Readers of my “tips” posts will remember I previously stressed that just because Windows 10 runs ok on your older computer today, that is no guaranty that that it will continue to do so in the future, unless it is listed in the computer manufacturer’s list of Windows 10 “supported models”.  I specifically said not to trust the Microsoft “compatibility checker”. I warned that future Windows 10 updates will install features that break some device drivers rendering them unusable. The latest major Windows 10 update has proven me correct. The Windows 10 Anniversary Update has been found to break millions of webcams for upgraders. The bug affects web cameras of all brands, built-in and external, and is even breaking Skype – Microsoft’s own audio and video chat service. The linked article has details and possible work-arounds. If this happens to you, and you can’t sort it out, email me with the exact make and model numbers of the unit. I will try to find a solution for you.

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.

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.
