Responses to suggestion to stop  Items for Sale @ €5

Well – so many of you were interested in “voting” and commenting on this issue

Here are the numbers :

26 correspondents supported the idea to make the lower limit €10.

4 supported a €20 minimum

8 strongly supported leaving things as they were.

The overwhelming number suggested that cheaper items should be donated to a charity & it was pointed out that one could telephone a charity & they would most likely collect items.

Thank you all SO much – Digamextra subscribers really are active & interested !

SO….. in future, I shall not include items under €10 euros for sale

(unless there’s a really, really good reason why I should consider doing otherwise in a  one-off Ad.)

Thank you – Jane



List of Donation Shops for Animal Welfare ?

Would it be possible to have a permanent list of Donation Shops who support Animal Welfare and Shelter added to the Digame list? And note if they can collect items.

Anyone with donations of saleable items could then know where to place them, either at one shop, or spread over several.

Just running that idea by you. Ellen

dogs…..not dods

Services Available –Hotel Vouchers in Nerja ?

My Mum has an apartment in El Morche that we visit in the summer.

This year our kids are old enough for a road trip from Suffolk – I think!

A few years ago my husband and I explored the area using a voucher scheme for hotels. We got a book in the travel agents in Nerja and chose from coloured vouchers going up in price and then could choose from the book the hotels you wanted to stay in.

I have forgotten the name of the scheme- do you happen to know the name of it or something similar?
Many thanks for any help you can give us.

Services Available- Comment re Post Boxes

Whilst some other towns have private alternatives to the official P O Box, I have not found one in Torrox unfortunately so agree wholeheartedly with Malcom’s comments yesterday. The cost used to be reasonable, but particularly since we’ve had to pay extra to have both of our names (although they are the same surname) on the account, it is nearly 100€ which does seems a lot considering they don’t have to leave their warm office to deliver our mail!

Services Available Absent Garage Owner – D. Geddes ?

Our car was booked in for its ITV last week with David but when we got there the garage was closed and locked up. We have been trying to ring ever since but his phone constantly says it is unavailable. Before we drive to Nerja to see if the garage is open does any Digamite know if he was due to shut for a holiday, or perhaps it’s just his phone that’s out of order? It is strange that he missed our ITV appointment. Barbara: mimbrebee at gmail dot com

Recommendation- Natural Gas Query

I’d be interested to hear opinions of any of you with experience of converting from butane to natural gas in your home.

There’s a host of info online from the supply companies but it would be helpful to speak to anyone who has been through the changeover process and also if you have ever installed a gas heater in your chiminea.  Thanks!

Recommendation – Fire Stick

In today’s DigamExtra someone was asking whether anyone has had

experience with Amazon Fire Stick.

Could you please share any replies on Digamextra as I’m sure there are others interested in the answer.

Many thanks  Jan
