One Eyed Jack is Missing

chipped and has had all injections.  He is also neutered and is

If anyone knows anything please call 620 671 270/



Location of Pavo Real

The Pavo Real is situated on the Torrox  to  Competa Road.

If anyone does not know where this is, there was a telephone number supplied with the entry for making enquiries, I guess the person from Torrox Park didn’t see this.

Regards SWB.

Unidentified Fruit – Response

This could be a pomelo. It’s hard to be sure from one photo, but it is clearly a citrus plant. Fruits like this are almost never poisonous because they rely on animals eating the fruit to spread the seeds. They can be laxative (eg figs) and whether they are to your taste is another matter.
When asking for help identifying a plant, bush or tree, you really need three photos. One showing the overall shape of the thing in its environment, one close up of two or three leaves on the stem, and one of the flower and or fruit. Cut one fruit to show the cross section. There are on line identification guides but you usually need a bit of basic botany (knowing your stamens from your pistils) to use them.



 Native English speaking volunteers required.

The Mario Zimbrano College in Torre-del-Mar runs a department specialising in equipping Spanish students (aged from 20 to 40 years old) to find employment in the tourist industry. A large part of their two year course is English Language and they are looking for native English speakers who can give some of their spare time to come and talk with the students to improve their fluency.

The classes are 1 hour long–  Monday 11:45 till 14:45 Wednesday8:15 till 14:45 and Friday 09:15 till 12:45.

No regular commitment is required just come on any day you are available and join in for  as long as you can.

There are some 8 of us who already attend when we can but some days only one of us is available so the teachers are hoping for more volunteers.

No formal teaching is required as we are there to help with pronunciation and word order etc. There is a lesson subject but that usually gets forgotten to talk about more interesting subjects like shopping, food, cars etc.  and you even learn some new Spanish words.

If you would be interested in helping please e- mail me at-

Your email address must be quoted in this format…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

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