Puppy Found ! 

puppy-02 puppy-01

Puppy found in the campo below Frigiliana on Sunday, February 6.

The puppy was alone and crying for his mother.

He is 8-10 weeks old, possibly a pointer mix.

He is chocolate brown with white paws, a white patch on his nose and around his neck, chest, and at the tip of his tail.  He currently weighs 4.5 kilos.
The puppy was taken to the vet today for de-worming and flea-tick treatment and will return on Friday for vaccinations.
Does anyone know anything about who this dog belongs to?
Please contact John at sommerof69 @ live.dk



Lost ! Nerja Flea Market, I’m hoping for help!!

On Sunday 5 February I was at the Nerja Flea Market with friends and as you all know it was really windy, I had a shawl over my shoulder and my handbag over so I thought all good. At one point I realized that the wind must have blown it away. Normally not such a big deal but is was a Christmas gift from my Husband when we were in Seville together, so for me a real sentimental value.  After checking almost all stalls and asking the vendors, one of the them told me, that a lady found it and was waving it around from whom it was…. Too late for me I could’nt find her anymore.

So the shawl is wool, dark red with gray and black, and other colors woven in and out and I just love it…. If you have heard about it or maybe are the one who found it, I will gladly pay a finder fee because it means so much to me. I know it’s a wild shoot but as we all know Digamextra can work miracles and MAYBE just  maybe the finder also reads Digamextra. So here’s to HOPE that the finder will give me a call !!!

Any info please call 657 149 248

Thank you in advance

Keeping Up With Today’s Internet – Safe Email Practices
The world evolves and along with it the internet. New tech and threats require us to adopt new ways of doing things. Today I discuss email developments.
The “cloud” gets hacked regularly, as do email password lists. Power, internet outages, email server failures (and poor customer service for recovery, like Yahoo) and lost or stolen PCs can deny you access to cloud services. Thus, while convenient for storage, it alone is insufficient for securing valuable data. Here is how to protect yourself.
-Always back up copies of any valuable data or documents to an off-line storage device such as a Flash drive. Simply saving to the cloud and your computer/tablet/smartphone is not enough.
-Use a strong password with at least 12 characters including capitals and small letters plus numbers and punctuation marks. Change the password every 6 months. Never reuse a password on multiple sites.
-Don’t open attachments in unfamiliar emails. This should be a given by now, but email attachments are still a popular way to circulate malware.
-Don’t click on suspect links. If a link looks hidden, or if it comes from an unfamiliar source, don’t click it. It might take you to an unspecified location and possibly inject malware into your machine when you attempt to download the page. Be aware of any discrepancies in links that look mostly but not entirely familiar, such as “Amaz0n” instead of “Amazon,” and any shortened links.
-Avoid unsecured WiFi. Unsecured Wi-Fi like wifi cafe’s connections are open invitations to cybercriminals. They can gain public access to the system, and view any traffic you send or receive; which basically means they’ve gained access to your account.
-Avoid sending unnecessary personal information. One type of scam, phishing, involves goading a user to send personal login information, usually under the guise of a communication from an official but familiar company. As a general rule, it’s best to avoid sending any personal information over email (unless you absolutely have to). Man

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 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.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

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.
