What do YOU Think ?

Received this email today and I am incluned to accept her suggestion. What think you ?     Jane – Editor

“I love reading Digamextra and some of the interesting posts about what’s on and items of interest and attractions to visit. I do however think that perhaps you could filter out some of the items people have for sale. Could you not put a limit on the prices? For example a minimum of 20 euros an item. I see lots of people selling things for 5 euros. Really? Is it worth all the effort to get 5 euros? I think the choice of things for sale would greatly improve if the items were more expensive and would save you time having to post items that would probably be better in a charity shop. “ J.D.

Services Needed- Dog Walkers


TAIL Torrox urgently needs people to help walk our refuge dogs.

We have over 80 that benefit enormously from even a short walk.

We have experienced volunteers that can help you choose a suitable dog to walk and you can get fit in the process.

We are situated on the main road to Torrox Costa on the same side as Racing club and before you get to Lidl.

Open from 10.30 to 14.00 and from 16.00 to 19.00 every day.

Its much more fun than walking on your own and it makes the dogs so happy to get out

Thank you

Contact Gill 633405560 or ogillyarmstead @ gmail.com

Many thanks    gill

Recommendation- deal with Ants

We live in El Campo, Nerja and for more than a year we have had ants. Tidy and wash all work surfaces every night, but they find the smallest morsel of food, every night, without fail.

I add about 10ml of Fairy washing up liquid to 300ml of water in a spray bottle to wash pots manually (saves a lot on washing-up liquid), but if you spray the work surfaces last thing at night with this 3% Fairy-soap solution then there are no traces of ants at all the next day.

The soap destroys water surface tension, so the water sticks to the ants and they drown. Works everywhere on non-porous surfaces, tiles floors, etc. Only needs one spray 🙂

Best regards from Harry



What’s on- Quizzical ?

Three intelligent people – with little knowledge of TV, sport or pop culture – living miles apart in Cómpeta and Los Romanes, would like to take part in a pub quiz. However, we are too far apart to go to either of these locations regularly.

Is there anywhere halfway between (e.g Torrox or somewhere closer to Velez?) where there is a regular quiz, and would anyone out there like to make a fourth person for a possible team?

Many thanks

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 4 weeks later.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in  JPEG Format

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.

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in  JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

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. 

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.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
