Lost Cat

For 2 days we have  lost our cat, a black one with some bolt spots on his belly.

His name is Doerak Normally he is very near (on the roofrerraces), or in our house in Calle Eusebio Garcia 34, Competa  but since last Saturday he is lost.

At this moment he is not wearing a collar.

He is chipped, but for an other address, since we moved over  4 weeks ago.

Hereby the request to look out for him.

He is friendly, absolute not dangerous, he seems even a little shy.

If you see him, please call 642635443 or 642635494.


Unicaja & Information on Incomes….

The bank are contacting you as the law requires that we all provide evidence of income such as a P60, pension details etc.

The email comes from an employee of Unicaja in Cómpeta.

He sits at the desk on the right as you go in.

He’s very helpful if you do need to speak to him.

The Police will fine anyone who puts garbage out of these hours.

Also, garbage bags must not be chucked into wastepaper baskets. These are only for litter.


You must not dump your old furniture in the street. You must take your old items with your own car or hire a van to the “Punto Limpio” which is in the industrial area of Castillo Alto, in front of “Paviser”, the big tile and bath shop.

The “Punto Limpio” is open Mondays to Fridays from 8 am to 2 pm.

The Town Hall offers a restricted service of collecting old items on certain nights and ONLY by previous appointment by phoning 952 54 8400.

You must not leave garden waste from pruning or construction material in the street. You must use your own car or hire a van to take it to the dump quarry in the area of Rio de la Miel.

Naythan DrLaptop logo 1 smallDoctorLaptop’s Computer News and Sept. Special
Sept. Special: Due to an overwhelming response to last month’s special I am continuing it for another month.

Full clean and tune-up on any computer, only €35 (reg. €50).

Removes all junk files and malware, optimizes for top performance, cleans internal cooling system, fully updates system/programs/drivers.

Does not apply to badly infected units or those showing error messages.

Those need a repair, not a maintenance service.

Special ends 01 Oct 16.
-WhatsApp to Share Your Data with Facebook!

WhatsApp now encrypts conversations so that data are safe from real-time snooping.

However, their username and password storage gets hacked regularly and those details end up for sale on the dark-web. Then hackers can access

anything in your account.

Remember to change your password regularly.
WhatsApp was bought by FB. WhatsApp’s new privacy policy allows it to connect Facebook accounts to WhatsApp accounts, giving FB even more data about users for delivering “targeted ads”.

WhatsApp now pushes users to share their account details and phone numbers with FB, allowing FB to suggest WhatsApp phone contacts as FB friends, as well as other intrusive uses of that data.

-Apple iPad and iPhone users are advised to update their system now as Apple has issued an Emergency Update.

Services Available- Gas heater cleaning

Hello everybody,

If you have a problem with the pressure of your hot water in your house, very probably it is because the gas heater is blocked because of cal.

I can clean your gas heater and can take off the cal with a special product, without dismantle the gas heater.

So afterwards you will have your gas heater as new with a good pressure.

Services- Editing and Proofreading Services
Arduous as they are, proofreading and editing are the necessary evils that separate your written document.

Regardless of how well you write, the meaning you’re trying to convey may be diluted or lost entirely if your work is not properly edited and proofread by a professional, whose mother tongue is English and whose command of the language is strong.

I can provide comprehensive proofreading services as well as editing services, which cover all aspects of grammar and readability.
For more information please email minstrel1963 @ hotmail.com

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”

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.
