Update on starving dogs Sayalonga

I  would just like to say that the 2 dogs we have been feeding in Sayalonga have been rescued, and are now in private kennels in Torrox, as there are no spaces in rescue centres.

They have been seen by a vet, and are being nursed back to health. Thank you to all people who fed them.

The person who managed to get them into the car was Ursula  Wiega, who also helped to get the feral cats of Sayalonga spayed.

There was a coffee meeting the other day in Sayalonga to decide what to do now, and a big thank you for people who donated money.

Maybe someone who has space would like to adopt these dogs, or could give a small amount of euros to help pay for their board in Raza hotel (doggy) Torrox till we can home them. Together would be great as they are good friends and have had a hard life so far. I know this only 2 dogs, but it’s 2 dogs less to die by starvation.

Thank you BM

Along with Digamextra No 479 yesterday I got attached to the top of the newsletter the following:

Monarch Flight 737

27 Jan-Confirmation no. V37NTL

Málaga AGP


London LGW


which has also made an entry on my calendar!

Needless to say I have not booked that flight (we fly to Newcastle anyway) so I was wondering if any other Digamextra subscribers have had this problem – or is just MY email that’s been hijacked?

Grateful for any information (and while I’m here, thank you for all the hard work you put in producing Digamextra!)    John L

What’s on –Trip to Mijas Pueblo

The Phoenix Club are off to Mijas Pueblo on the 18th February.

Mijas Pueblo, a Historical and Artistic Complex, climbs up the Sierra de Mijas.

The Old Town is a typical Muslim village, the parts of the old walls are still standing offering great panoramic views of the Costa del Sol from their beautiful gardens.

Loads to see in Mijas, stroll along the old cobbled streets, stop for a tapas or two, have a look at the museums and enjoy the hustle and bustle.
There is an opportunity to visit the Mayan Monkey Chocolate Workshop and try your hand at making chocolate but this would be an extra cost.

The date? Friday 18th February

The price?  €14pp

We pick up at 09.00 at Algarrobo Lidl and 09.15 at Torre del Mar bus station, returning from Mijas at 16.30.

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. 

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
