Robbery in Torrox Chinese Shop

My sister was robbed Saturday in the big Chinese shop in Torrox….
Two young women crowded her from behind do she didn’t even get a look at them….
Beware…. These creeps are professional and know just how to do it
My sister lost money, credit cards, drivers licence, and other pieces that are a pain in the butt to replace !

Bag Stolen from Home

I had my bag stolen from my house on Cebadillas Bajas 3, In Torrox Pueblo.

(I unlocked the door for two minutes to water the plants and turned my back to empty the washing machine) Thurs eve about 6pm.

I’m hoping the thief took  my valuables and dumped it, it has my prescription glasses in it.

Straw bag about 18in by 12, white leather trim and handles.  Tortoise shell glasses. Also black Sony xperia e phone.  Fluorescent green rubber cover.

My English phone is 079563945 and I have messenger and whatsapp.

Send a text and I’ll call back. My husbands Spanish number is 651735055.

Thanks Karen and Mike

 

 

 

Homes Needed 

homes-for-pups

We went to the car boot sale in Algarrobo today where an old man had 4 baby dogs in a basket.
My boyfriend took one in his hands and the man was gone. He gave the little dogs away because his dog had babies and he didn’t have money and space to keep them.
We went straight to the vet in Torrox who told us the little thing is just 3 or 4 weeks young.
We live in a Van and we already have a dog who hates other dogs. Because we don’t have a flat/ house we are not able to keep him.
A shelter is no option as well. Little Pepe needs so much love and contact…..
Can you please give him a beautiful Home?

Phone Theft – Reward for Help

Any computer experts out there know how to transfer contacts from one hot mail account to a new one, or how to inform all my contacts that my phone has been stolen and watch out for dodgy e mails.

Text to 0044 7956394571, and I will call you back,(Spanish number stolen) or reply to

lincesansom @ hotmail.com.

Happy to pay if some one can do it. Have already changed all the passwords I can think of.

Karen

(Moving contact list is easy to do so save yourself a few euros, see the detailed instructions here: https://www.lifewire.com/export-contacts-from-hotmail-1174240

As for an email to all your contacts, simply write the email, insert 1 contact’s address in the “Addressed To” box, then click the BCC button, add all the contacts you want to send to, then click Send. Note: if you send to more than 50 contacts at a time you may get a spammer warning from Outlook/Hotmail. DL)

 

 

IKEA – Returns Policy

I noticed an advert the other day from someone saying that a recently purchased sofa was too big for their house and that is now being sold at a much reduced price.

If this was purchased from IKEA do they realise that they have up to one year to return it.             http://www.ikea.com/ms/es_ES/customer-service/about-shopping/return-policy/index.html

Useful to know that items can be returned if it turns out to be unsuitable/uncomfortable/too large etc!

RE: Jpeg – “Will someone explain to us what this picture format is …”

Hello Jane, Pam and Digamites,

Old “bitmap” (BMP) pictures used one byte of data for every pixel (dot) on the screen. So if you had a picture of 500 x 500 pixels, then you would need to send 250,000 bytes of data to send that picture. That’s quarter of a million bytes, and for such a small picture.

A portrait of you outside may have 30% of all pixels the same blue-sky colour and another 20% the same shade of green grass, so why pay to send the same data over and over again? Instead of sending 80,000 blue numbers, why not send the colour once and another number for the quantity? = two numbers instead of 80,000 numbers.

This is exactly what the “Joint Picture Expert Group” did when this and other compressing techniques were developed. In general, a JPEG picture with “normal” compression can be reduced in size by 90%, and very strong compression can reduce a picture to just 5% of the original size with a little (not noticeable) reduction in quality.

Before you send a picture my mail, use your file explorer / windows explorer to list the file. If the filename is something like myfile.jpg or myfile.jpeg then it is indeed a JPEG file. If you have a version of Windoze that protects you from details then right-click and select “properties”. It will then display the details about the picture.

If the file is larger than 1MB (1000kB, or 1,000,000B) then it is probably not a JPEG image, and your e-mail program may even refuse to send such a pig picture file to DigameXtra.

In Windoze you can open a picture file using PAINT.EXE and select FILE > SAVE AS, then choose JPEG format. The basic formats:

BMP uncompressed

JPG high compression

GIF medium compression, but supports moving picture “loops” in emails

TAGA typicall “screen dumps” (snapshots) from video files

I hope this explains it to you in simple words, but I apologize for using so many.

Best regards from harry.lythall @ sm0vpo.com

Tax Rebate Email Warning

I received an email this morning purporting to be from HMRC saying I am due a “tax refund”. As this is highly unlikely I looked into it further.

The HMRC will never contact by email about refunds, or ask for personal or financial information this way.
The heading and site look very realistic!

Services – Online Banking with Sabadell – Update

After my gripe about the intervention of sms for verification with Sabadell ( no signal in the campo )

I have managed to get response from the bank customer services and wish to share this good news.

If you have a smart phone and down load their app and activate your account set up..but you do initially need to do this with a signal to receive  a code via sms.to also verify mobile phone user It’s all singing and dancing after that.

call into the branch and they will help you if you are in difficulty with it.

Happy days internet banking from your home.

What’s On – Cinema In English – October 28 to November 3

CINESUR –  VELEZ MALAGA EL INGENIO
http://www.cinesur.com/home.php?id_cine=219
Disappointingly, there are no VOSE daily screenings this week. In addition, the recent pattern of showing lots of films in English on Tuesdays has changed. It looks as if VOSE day will now be Thursdays. So next Thursday (3rd), the choice is:

Doctor Strange – Dir. Scott Derrickson. With Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton. 22:15.

Trolls – Dir. Mike Mitchell, Walt Dohm. With Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick. 17:10, 19:10.

A Monster Calls – Dir. J A Bayona. With Liam Neeson, Felicity Jones. 19:40, 22:10.

In addition, for ballet fans, on Wednesday 2nd there is a live broadcast of The Royal Ballet’s production of Kenneth MacMillan’s Anastasia. This will start at 20:15.

Many thanks to Doug for this up date

Services Available – Singing Lessons

Hello lovely sunny people.

I am an experienced singing teacher and have just moved over to the sunny climes of Nerja – with 5 years worth of teaching experience in London and the South of England I have been lucky enough to teach 7 year olds to 90 year olds, and all the ones in between. I am now wanting to help potential singers over here to.

If you have ever felt like you have wanted singing lessons, or lack confidence with anything in your life, then learning to sing can improve this. If you have breathing troubles, then my technique of combining Classical training and modern training together, can really enhance your life.
Or even if you just love music and singing and your too scared to do this alone I am here to help.

I am a grade 8 classically trained singer, with a degree in Vocal performance from a renowned contemporary music school in Guildford. With experience in Musical theatre and pop, I am a published songwriter. And I have toured California with the 80’s band ABC. Please do check my website –

www.georgiecullum.com

Please do email me georgiecullum  @ gmail.com

or call me on 95124 7255

to have a chat about lessons and prices,

I am very flexible and I can come to you wherever you are.

I very much hope to hear from you!

Georgie.

(3)

In reply to T.W. in today’s Digamextra: I went to Dentis Centro Dental in Torre del Mar yesterday with a denture emergency. I would add that this is my regular dentist. They repaired my old, broken UK made denture in hours and I have arranged for a brand new denture to be made. First fitting in the morning.

Staff are brilliant. Technician is on site. English speaking if required.

Better still, if you have a Simple Care card, you receive a very good discount. Prices are very sensible. The clinic can be found on the main road (Avenida Andalucia 86). Almost opposite the large pharmacy and close to the main taxi rank.

Recommendations – English Breakfast

In reply to Eddy, I can offer the advice that Cafe El Eden, on the
main car park in Torre, does a very fine two eggs and bacon with toast
and butter if you want it.   For many years I have thought it the best
available locally, used to be perfectly cooked eggs with 6 rashers.
But I haven’t been for a while, so it may have changed.

Talk Radio Europe 105.5fm in the Axarquia (sometimes 91.5fm).

TRE was voted Third TESCA Best Radio by expats worldwide in the Expat Survey Consumer Awards 2016.

Firstly, In a bid to improve reception here in the Axarquia, Talk Radio Europe has been making some technical adjustments.  Some areas are easier to reach than others, that’s why we need your help.

Can you spare a little time to drop us an email with your location (very important) and your honest opinion of the reception quality.  The type of device you are listening on would also be useful but not essential.

Your comments would be very much appreciated.

Please send your reception report/location to:

colette @ talkradioeurope.com

With you help we can make a difference for everyone to enjoy.  Thank you in anticipation.

Secondly, A slight change to programming………………….

Howard Brereton will be presenting a live Sunday Supplement show on Sundays from 10am, featuring the weekly interview between Howard and Bill Blevins of Blevins Franks.

Howard’s Radio in Black and White show will move one hour earlier to 9am Sunday.

 

 

Thank You – Success With the Correct Information !!

Yesterday you published an advert for me for an amp/speakers, plus notice boards.  You were kind enough to check the picture of the amp and include the make and model in the advert, which I had omitted. This I’m sure contributed to the fact it sold within a couple of hours of Digamextra going out.  Thanks very much for your hard work with Digamextra, it is appreciated.

Steve

Do you think you could ask your advertisers to include their location in their posts, and tell them unless they do you won’t publish it as there are items I am interested in but unless I know how far I have to travel what’s the point?

An email address is fine but by the time you get an answer the item has probably gone. Grumpy or what.
Kind regards

Flight from Düsseldorf Weeze Airport Germany to Malaga on the 14 December

My Husband often flies between Malaga to Weeze Airport in Germany.

On the 14th of December he has the flight at 3 pm to Malaga. Is there someone on the same flight that lives in the area around Duisburg, Bocholt or Wesel?

He needs a lift to the airport (he would of course put into the gas cost) and could meet at either one of the cities train station?

Looking forward to see if Digamextra can work it’s magic again??

Please send info to : Deassola @ gamail.com

German Version:

Mein Mann fliegt noch zwischen Malaga und Weeze Airport.

Am 14 Dezember geht ein Flug um 15 Uhr nach Malaga. Ist jemand auch auf diesem Flug der in dem Umfeld, Duisburg, Bocholt oder in Wesel Wohnt. Er braucht eine Mitfahrgelegenheit (mit Benzinkostenbeteiligung) und würde sie am Bahnhof einer dieser Städte treffen?

Mal sehen ob Digame wieder eines seine kleine Wunder bewirken kann?

wheelchair

Services Available – Wheelchairs

–In addition to e-mailing the poster of this thread, I think that other Digamites may be interested in the following information, since there have been a number of requests for wheelchairs in recent weeks.

A manual wheelchair can cost from 25 Euros a week to 50 Euros a week, depending upon where you go. All companies demand typically 100 Euros deposit.
For example:
www.bluebadgemobility.com/ will let you have a manual wheelchair for as little as 10 Euros a day, or 40 Euros a week. They also have electrically powered scooters (Madge-mobile), but this is also reflected in the rental price.

The best place we have found is a little shop in Nerja, opposite La Ermita hotel, go down the road beside the Yoigo shop, about 20 metres on your left.

The guy there is Dutch and will measure you to get you the correct size chair, and for only 25 Euros a week.

He also sells wheelchairs (200 Euros), crutches (17 Euros), etc.

http://www.mobility-scooter-rental.com/costa-del-sol-mobility-hire/mobility-hire-nerja want 35 Euros a week, and they also hire out electrically powered scooters.

If you need a wheelchair for a month or more then it is more cost effective to buy a second-hand wheelchair from the UK (or in my case Sweden) and you can usually pick up a bargain for under 80 Euros.

Most airline companies (except RyanAir) will ferry the chair free of charge.

Just ask for “Wheelchair assistance” when you book your flight.

You can also find many more local resources by Googling for “wheelchair nerja”.

 

Finally, if you only need the chair for those “extended shopping sprees” then most large stores will lend you a chair, free of charge. Ikea in Malaga do this.

All you need to do is to show your passport and fill in a form.

They are a bit “kinky” about people stealing the chairs, so if you need to take the chair outside to the car then ask for a security escort.

Very best regards from Harry (dot) Lythall (at) sm0vpo (dot) com

Recommendations Needed – For Hearing-Aid Supplier

My mother had hearing-aids fitted a few years ago in England before coming to live in Spain.

They now need to be replaced or possibly just reprogrammed.

I have seen an advert for Audiotec Hearing Centre in Velez-Malaga and know an optician in Nerja that offers to fit hearing-aids.

Can anybody had recommend either of these centres? Or can anybody recommend a good hearing-aid centre in this area where English is spoken?

Please email me janetpender @ yahoo.com or reply to Digame.

Any information gratefully received as we don’t really know who to approach for this!

 

 

Recommendation for  Gluten Free Bread

I placed an ad on Digame recently for a supply of decent gluten free bread and a lady kindly offered to bake the bread for me, I now have a supply of really lovely fresh bread that freezes well and tastes so much better than anything I can buy here, it’s really delicious.
Anyone out there with the same gluten problems may want to contact her, she is happy to bake for people, I would definitely recommend her. She is in the Nerja region.
Her email is : amandajosiah @ hotmail.com

The Story Behind Hashing – Who Started It and Why?

History of Hashing
Those of you who’ve read our recent article on Digame or in the free English language publications will know that hashing is becoming a very popular form of exercise with the ex- pat community.
Axarquia Hash House Harriers (AHHH) is going from strength to strength with new members joining us all the time.
Hashing originated in 1938 in Malaya (now Malaysia) when a group of British colonial officers and expatriates began meeting on Monday evenings to run and rid themselves of the weekend’s excesses. The run was designed around the traditional British paper chase or “hare and hounds” format. Harriers reaching the end of the trail would partake of beer, ginger beer and cigarettes. Hashing died out after the Japanese invasion of Malaya but was resuscitated in the 60s in Singapore and spread through the Far East and the South Pacific, Europe and North America expanding during the mid-1970s. Today there are thousands of hashing clubs in all parts of the world.
The objectives of the Hash House Harriers were recorded in 1950 as follows:
1) To promote physical fitness among our members
2) To get rid of weekend hangovers
3) To acquire a good thirst and to satisfy it in beer
4) To persuade the older members that they are not as old as they feel AAH certainly agrees with objectives 1), 3), and 4)!

Why the name?
The restaurant used by the first harriers in Malaya was known locally as the “Hash House”. The name stuck and became adopted by harriers around the world.

Come and join us!
AAH welcomes all ages, abilities and nationalities. All you need is a good pair of trainers, a reasonable level of fitness and a sense of humour. Bottles of cold water are provided at the start to take with you on the ‘run’ and hares are happy to look after valuables for you so there’s no risk of dropping your car keys in a ditch! We make a charge of 4 Euros per run, which includes water, beer and soft drinks.
The hash is a great way to get out, take some exercise, socialise and see different parts of the beautiful Axarquia. So why not come along, take part and find out if hashing is for you?
For more information on AHHH and details of the next hash please go to www.ah3.es

Endesa Office

I guess you might have visited Endesa’s office in Velez-Malaga.  This is notorious for offhandedness, and having skeletons occupying some of the chairs.

The office in Nerja is far better, and less busy, and there is usually English to be had. It isn’t necessary for you to use your nearest office.

To find it, go over the cobbled bridge (at Supersol), do not turn first right (Clinica Rincon etc), but take next right, and they’re about 50m on the right.  Park under Supersol, and get a coffee there for free parking.

Need Advice: Dealing with a Rat Infestation

I live semi-rurally on a mountain above the village of Sayalonga.

Rats have always been a constant menace, chewing electrical wires and such. Back then, my old Border Terrier was a great help with control.

Sadly, I’ve lost my faithful companion to old age earlier this year. These days, I’m trying the conventional rat traps but they all seem quite violent and I’d prefer not to deal with the bloody aftermath or a half-dead rat which I might have to kill. Could anyone help to share some insight into the best way to deal with these pests?

Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Warning – Endesa

Just a warning to anyone intending to visit Endesa (electricity suppliers) in the near future. We went there to hand in a bill which had come to our address but had the wrong name and meter number on it. After waiting some time for our turn ( remember to take a ticket as you come in the door) we were finally called forward. Arriving at the desk we were immediately asked for passports which we do not carry on a day to day basis. We showed them our Spanish driving licences, NIE, Residencia, Andalucia Seniors Card but all she kept saying was “Passeporte”. We tried to explain why we were there but she just would not listen and just kept on repeating “Passeporte”. In the end we just gave up and left. She would not even allow us to leave the incorrect bill behind. We are now hoping we are not going to get cut off for non payment of a bill which is not ours. The warning here is that if you do not want to have an unnecessary journey when visiting Endesa, remember to take your passport with you!

Helene, La Vinuela.

Thanks for Recommendations –  Online Banking SMS

Like to thank W.F and Steve for there input.

To  W.F reply. I should have stated I can get online with Sabadell only to read a statement. I did not want to make blog long winded. It is not comprehensive or convenient when you cannot use the other facilities from your own home.

Reference to mobile signal I would also welcome W.F to try their mobile at Km 7.5 Torrox Competa Rd and share the provider that works in black spots where others fail. I am pretty confident inhabitants in the campo would also welcome this.

I will look into Steve’s bank suggestions they look like the same criteria Sabadell used until the change.

Recommendations – Thanks

Recommendation – Wonderful Furniture Renovation

We recently had a devastating fire on the first floor of our house. Luckily the house was empty at the time.

We had several pieces of Antique Pine furniture badly smoke and fire damaged. There was also extensive smoke damage to the pine doors, which we had bought new, during renovation, these had been very expensive.

We contacted John Simpkins from the Antique Shop in Competa, called Leon Blanco, and he said he could restore all the items to their original state.

Last week all the doors, their architrave and all the furniture were returned

and installed.

What a professional job he has made of them, we are so pleased with the result.

What’s On – Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar : Excursions

Thursday 3rd November.  Coach Excursion to Álora & the Wolf Park.

Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar invite you to join friends on a day excursion by coach to visit the typical whitewashed village of Álora nestled between three rocky spurs. There will be a guided tour of the village, which consists of a series of very steep slopes and attractive cobbled streets.  You will visit the ruins of a magnificent castle which was first built by the Phoenicians and subsequently expanded under Roman rule. In the 5th century the castle was virtually destroyed by the Visigoths, only to be rebuilt under the Moors; remnants of this era still remain, namely the decorative steel door.  You will be able to see the splendid panoramic view of the Guadalhorce river basin. It is important to notethat the coach is unable to drive up to the castle and there is an uphill gradient to the castle which may be difficult for people who find walking difficult. There is also a visit to the museum and the Bachiller oil mill.

After the tour there will be free time for you to buy and relax over lunch.  You will then rejoin the coach for the short drive to the Wolf Park, where there will be another guided tour which explains the wolves’ history and life style. You will see them close up, being fed and interacting with each other and witness wolves in an exceptional environment that leaves no doubt that these animals in captivity do have a chance to live in a semi-natural habitat. Ticket price 34 Euros available at the Centre, which includes guided visits, entrances, transport and insurance.  Activity for fundraising.  Departure times from: Viñuela (Football Pitch) 08.45, Algarrobo (Lidl) 09.10, Caleta (Vets) 09.15, Torre del Mar (Coach Station) 09.25. Depart Wolf Park approximately 17.30.

December 13th, 14th & 15th December.  Coach Excursion to Rute Chocolate Factory & Seville Christmas Light & Sights.

Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar invite you to join friends on a three day coach excursion.  On the first day, after leaving the Torre del Mar area you will stop for breakfast (not included) near Antequera.  After re-joining the coach, the next stop is the village of Rute to visit the Chocolate Factory, where each year they have a special Belen (Crib) to celebrate Christmas.  A great time to visit the factory shop to buy your Christmas presents.  If there is time you will also visit the small chocolate museum.  You will then join the coach for the drive to Seville, arriving at the hotel at 13.30 approximately.

The remainder of the day and the following two days are free for you to enjoy the sights of Seville, wander through the street to visit the Cathedral with its famous Bell tower, the Giralda and Royal Palace.  You can also take the tourist bus or a carriage drive and of course at night see the beautiful Christmas lights throughout the city.

On the final day you will leave Seville about 16.00.  Price 195 Euros per person double room and 246 Euros single room.  Deposit of 50 Euros and the final payment is due the first week of December.  The price includes your stay at the 4* Hotel Fernando 3, on a bed & breakfast basis and insurance.  Pick up times: Viñuela (Football Pitch) 08.20, Algarrobo 08.45, Caleta (Vets) 08.50, Torre del Mar (Coach Station) 09.00.

For further information and bookings please contact the Centre, Torre del Mar Tel.952 543 334 E-mail: luxmundi@lux-mundi.org  .Please note you are unable to make bookings through the web site and sorry we cannot accept cards

Services Needed – Spanish Teacher

Does anyone have an email address for Sergio who runs the level 1 Spanish classes? We missed 2 weeks classes when on holiday the first 2 weeks of October which Sergio knew about but, sadly, my husband became quite ill whilst we were away and is not fit to attend classes for the foreseeable future; as I don’t want to leave him on his own for 3 hours a week unfortunately I too will be unable to attend. I would hate Sergio to think that we just were not interested so would like to email him to explain. Alternatively, if anyone on here attends the level 1 classes could they pass on a mesage for us? Many thanks.

Following Colin’s post, I would just like to point out that you can access your account online with Sabadell, and look at transactions etc, without using a mobile phone. It’s only if you want to transfer money that you need to get a code by text to confirm it is actually you doing it, not someone else nicking your money! I for one welcome any additional security, and using SMS is common in UK banks too. My mobile doesn’t get much of a signal at home, I can’t make calls on it, but there’s enough to get a text. I’m surprised that Colin’s phone can’t do that, given how many more masts have gone up over the years. When mobiles first became more common way back, in Sedella people could only get a signal by climbing up the hill behind the village……

W.F.

(2)

La Caixa and Cajamar give you the option of SMS or a Matrix card. The card is plastic, the size of a credit card, with a series of random numbers. When you are working online, a transfer for example, it will give you a reference off the card, A3 for example, and you then enter the corresponding number.

You must ask for this option when opening the account.

Steve, Competa.

 

 

Recommendation – Chimney Sweep

I also recommending Diego.

I met him for the first time today when he came to clean our chimney in Árchez. He was a very clean and tidy worker and checked our chimney from the roof all the way down to our log burner. He has identified a problem with the weather proofing of our chimney and has left 2 drawings for our builder along with a list of the materials needed to do the job and his phone number in case our builder wants to speak to him on the phone.

So all in all, a great service at a very reasonable price.    Margaret

For Sale – Composted Horse Manure

Now is the time to prepare your garden for the Fall season!

Composted horse manure will provide the much needed fibre mulch for the ongoing health of both the soil and the plants growing in it. Aside from the natural, slow release nutrients of the horse manure itself, the earth will benefit from the humus, which keeps the soil lighter, preserves moisture content and acts as a storehouse for nitrogen, which plants need to produce the protiens required for green stems, strong roots and lots of leaves.

The manure has been composed for 6 months, and is bagged in clean sacks.

Each sack holds approximtely 25L. 6 euros each.

Don’t hesitate too long as supplies are limited!

Located in Algarrobo (pueblo) – arrangements to be made in advance for pick up.

Delivery between Nerja/Competa/Torre Del Mar/Lac Vinuela – an additional 5 euros to cover fuel expense.

Recommendation – Gluten Free Food

(1)

Lidl in Algarrobo sell two different kinds of nearly ready mix cake/bread flour, far aisle by the cake decorating items, bottom shelf.

Ann, Competa

(2)

Gluten is the part of the flour that gives elasticity to the bread, and gluten free breads do have a different texture. They tend to crumble more easily and dry out quickly. Most gluten free bread consumers agree that home made breads are as good as you will get and many use a bread maker. The Panasonic SD2500 is definitely the best on the market and comes with a range of gluten free recipes.
Vic

(3)

Hi, my friend is a coeliac and has a villa in Spain, and says it is so easy to buy gluten free here in Spain compared to the UK.  The last time she came over I had to get her some supplies in and bought them from Mercadona in Torre del Mar.

I wasn’t sure about the bread and bought her one off the shelf saying gluten free and she said it was really nice, so it might be worth sampling some of theirs.

Recommendation Wanted – Banking without SMS

Just like to share the experience with the new online banking with Sabadell.

As of now online banking can only be done with sms verification code.

Looks like a great idea but in reality if you do not have a mobile signal like me at home then it is pointless.

I emailed the bank and personally called into the bank asking if there is another option then to be told in not so many words

” Tuff that’s the way it is now”

To be told to go to internet cafe, presumably one with a good mobile phone signal.

Any readers who could recommend another bank that does not use sms verification.

replies on Digamextra please.    Colin J

Recommendation from Viveros Florena

We think it will be helpful if, each month, we give you a list of some of the jobs you should be carrying out in your gardens – just to jog your memories!

So, here goes with:

October Jobs in the Mediterranean Garden.

October is one of our loveliest months; the light is softer and the mellowness shows in our garden plants. Plants and humans seem to come back to life after the heat of the summer, we all have a little extra sparkle! During these soft days, it’s an absolute pleasure to be out in the garden, cleaning up, planting, pottering and admiring!

Clearing: We all laze slightly during summer, so your garden is probably looking in need of a good clean up. Cut back summer bedding plants and annuals and they will often give another show of flowers if the weather stays kind. Keep deadheading perennials and roses for long flowering.

As leaves start to fall, rake them off paths and add them to your compost heap or put them into hessian sacks. Moisten the contents now and again and the leaves will slowly breakdown forming leaf mould, a super-rich feed for your plants. Leaves on lawns, are easy to deal with on a dry day; get the lawn mower out – the cutting action will shred the leaves and they will then rot down rapidly, feeding the lawn at the same time.

Planting: This month is the start of the important planting months in Mediterranean climates. The soil is warm so plants settle in quickly, rain and dewy mornings are all around us meaning less irrigation and root systems have a chance to establish well before the heat of next summer.

It´s important to plant now any bulk plantings, hedges, deciduous trees and shrubs, climbers and perennials. Remember to work in some good quality compost to get your plants off to a good start.

This is also a good month to move plants, so if you´ve got something in the wrong place, don´t despair!

Boundaries and Supports: Check that fences, trellis and tree posts are firm before the strong winds of winter start blowing things about.

Fertilising: This is the month to give your lawn its last feed of the year. Also established fruit trees, citrus, roses and shrubs; they´ll grow stronger and give you more flowers/fruits come springtime.

Rain: That wet stuff that we are all longing for – make the most of it. Save as much rainwater as you can, clean out gutters and downpipes, surface water drainage channels etc. so that not one drop is wasted! At the same time, stand pots on feet to prevent water-logging (most plants hate sitting in water) or, if they are on plates, empty them after heavy downpours otherwise the roots could rot.

Watering: After this long hot summer, check all your irrigation pipes. We’ve had many reports of rats, squirrels and even wild boar chewing through water pipes in their desperation for water.

New plantings need to be carefully looked after. Think in terms of a couple of buckets of water twice weekly if the weather is dry. This is far more beneficial than a little sprinkling every day.

Pots and Containers: Now is the time to replace summer bedding in pots with plants that will appreciate the cooler weather. There are some great foliage plants, things like heuchera, tiarella, frondy ferns, mix them with pansies, violas, cyclamen and you will have pretty pots right through to next summer.

Bulbs: This is also the month to start planting spring-flowering bulbs. We´ve a great selection coming into the garden centre very soon, the well-loved daffodils, freesia, anemone, hyacinth, crocus and some wonderful tulips. But try some more unusual ones too – allium, amaryllis, colchicum, eremus, fritillaria, gladiolis, iris, lily, nerine, ornithogalum, nectaroscordum, saffron crocus and the lovely Spanish bluebell. One of the advantages of bulbs is that, even if you only have a doorstep as your garden, you can make it look beautiful. As a general rule of (green) thumb, plant the bulbs at two to three times their own depth. Group in the garden in minimums of five for a showy display next springtime. Little pots of sweet-smelling narcissus and hyacinths can be brought inside when flowering. Plan some for Christmas, lovely gifts too – from planting to flowering is 4 to 6 weeks.

What’s On – The Phoenix Club Are Off to Casariche

Sunday 20th November, to experience a traditional inland Sunday market.  This is a very large market selling leather goods at very competitive prices, much cheaper than on the coast.  Many other artisan products also available.  Menu del Dia at a local restaurant can also be booked but is an extra.  A great day out.

And on Friday 25th November 2016 visiting Rute, an inland village in the province of Cordoba.  It is a lovely drive and once there we will visit their chocolate and biscuit factory and ooh and ahh at their famous Belen made entirely of chocolate and the magnificent sugar creations.  In the afternoon we will pop into the Anise Museum where we will be able to sample their wares and buy a bottle or two for Christmas.

Rute’s primary economy centres on the extensive production of foodstuffs including dozens of different makes of Anis and traditional Spanish hams.  Rute comes from the word “Ruta” or “Route” in English. A route that Spanish soldiers followed when they were going to conquest Granada was the beginning of Rute. Later, the first “anis” factory was opened. Because of this, more factories were opened and this municipality became one of the most important makers of anis for over the world. Today, most of these factories are still open and a lot of people go to Rute at Christmas for the sweets that are made there.

Lost Kitten. Please Help 

lost-kit

We need help in finding our lost campo kitten (6 months old), called Smokie, because she is mostly grey with stripes.  We took her to Clínica Veterinaria Axarquia in Torre del Mar on Tuesday 11 October for neutering, so she now has a shaved stomach.  After we collected her at 5.30 pm she escaped into the car park opposite Supercor (Torre del Mar).

We did find her hiding on the engine of a car, but while our friend was attempting to catch her she bit and scratched him and ran off again.  We are afraid she might have got onto another car engine and could be anywhere.  We are still searching for her.

Please contact Kate by phone 617968546 or

email kateandiangb @ hotmail.com if you have seen her.

Reward for any information that leads to her safe return.

You may have heard the sad news that Louise has decided to close the boutique after many years and has begun a closing down sale.
I wanted to let you all know as soon as possible, that contrary to popular belief, this in no way affects my beauty business and I will be operating as normal.

Although of course we won’t have the pleasure of Susie and Anne’s company for very long.

Recommendations Needed – Gluten Intolerant Breads

I have been diagnosed recently as gluten intolerant and therefore need a gluten free diet.

The major problem I have encountered is the lack of gluten free bread that is edible, the supermarket breads are awful and the bakers don’t have it at all, does anyone know of anywhere selling acceptable gluten free bread ? We live in Torrox campo but will travel to find something worth eating !!

Answers to Digamextra as I am sure there are others out there with the same problem, it apparently is becoming a more common occurrence.

Recommendation – Casa Montes Negros

We have just spent a lovely day at Casa Montes Negros learning about cooking in a traditional wood oven.

Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere in a beautiful setting.

We learned so much, not just about wood oven cooking but so much more!

Many thanks Rachael and Roman for a great day and scrumptious lunch!

Recommendation Rob Bell, Torrox graphic designer & photographer

British professional photographer Rob Bell of Torrox this week succeeded in doing the impossible—making me look 30 years younger yet even wiser.

I highly recommend Rob, who took a 36 mp series of professional portraits for our web site being constructed in Valencia, thebrexitlawfirm.com.

Rob, who can be reached at 951066688 or 678204428 and at rbphotos26 @ gmail.com, was tasked to re-invent my image as an American barrister for our new international law firm based in Valencia, the Brexitlawfirm. Rob and his wife and assistant, Susan, were superb in every way in creating a new persona that even I did not fully recognize (or perhaps choose to as it was a real trip back to the future).

But Rob, using a high end Nikon camera with 36 mps and lighting equipment did a superb job.

Our new law firm used his genius as a graphic artist helping design our logo and print advertisements and now this, creating someone I had not met in a very long time.

Well done, Rob! I highly recommend him, and he is extremely reasonable in his fees, a very practical and talented man.

Thursday 3rd November.  Coach Excursion to Álora & the Wolf Park. Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar invite you to join friends on a day excursion by coach to visit the typical whitewashed village of Álora nestled between three rocky spurs. There will be a guided tour of the village, which consists of a series of very steep slopes and attractive cobbled streets.  You will visit the ruins of a magnificent castle which was first built by the Phoenicians and subsequently expanded under Roman rule. In the 5th century the castle was virtually destroyed by the Visigoths, only to be rebuilt under the Moors; remnants of this era still remain, namely the decorative steel door.  You will be able to see the splendid panoramic view of the Guadalhorce river basin. It is important to note that the coach is unable to drive up to the castle and there is an uphill gradient to the castle which may be difficult for people who find walking difficult. There is also a visit to the museum and the Bachiller oil mill.

After the tour there will be free time for you to buy and relax over lunch.  You will then rejoin the coach for the short drive to the Wolf Park, where there will be another guided tour which explains the wolves’ history and life style. You will see them close up, being fed and interacting with each other and witness wolves in an exceptional environment that leaves no doubt that these animals in captivity do have a chance to live in a semi-natural habitat. Ticket price 34 Euros available at the Centre, which includes guided visits, entrances, transport and insurance.  Activity for fundraising.  Departure times from: Viñuela (Football Pitch) 08.45, Algarrobo (Lidl) 09.10, Caleta (Vets) 09.15, Torre del Mar (Coach Station) 09.25. Depart Wolf Park approximately 17.30.
