Small Black Dog Found


We have just found a small black dog at Torrox Beach.

We were not able to find its owner in the whole area. Does anybody miss a dog? We took it with us and hope that somebody is missing it because our dog really doesn`t want it here. Of course we won’t bring it to a dog shelter but we need someone to take it if nobody misses it.

Please help and share.contact WhatsApp 0049163 – 5821501



Endesa –


Vicky’s post yesterday was interesting, with past bills having been looked at.  It’s always difficult to make a judgement about why electricity consumption may have increased over time (habits can change), but a sudden and dramatic increase is always suspect.

On the Endesa clientes site, you should find both figures and a graph for your bi-monthly consumption over past months and years.  Rather than look at usage across the months of one year, try looking at, say, Sept-Oct in each of several years, and see what that tells you.  At least, then, you’ll only be comparing the same bit of the year.

Other tack is to add up your total annual kWh usage (6 bills), and compare one whole year with the next.  This averages out visitors, away-time, chilly spots, etc.

I’m not optimistic about getting Endesa to test and own up to a meter fault, and to do all that without charge.  You certainly should not be paying for any test, where you can show a rapid increase in readings.  I’ve been there and done that – We had a smart meter installed 10 years ago, which threw up a ‘time of day’ fault one winter, causing chaos with our use of half-price units, and a big jump in bill. Endesa never removed the meter for testing, denied any fault, and fought the claim all the way through to the Junta’s consumer complaint on my behalf.  We never received credit.)

It was interesting, then – after this Digame thread – to have our old smart meter changed for a new one just yesterday!!  Is Big Brother listening?  Chris

Thanks for the Replies

Would you please thank all people who took their time to respond with their advice on Endessa.  Once we have investigated everything we will report back via Digamextra.




Suggestion re E.U.

I wanted to bring this to your readers’ attention as it may be something they would like to sign up to.
“A European Passport could be the perfect solution for those threatened with the loss of EU Citizenship

The Choose Freedom Campaign is a European Citizens’ Initiative that is the brainchild of Glyn Hughes, 57 year old Engineering Designer from Derbyshire.

The aim of the campaign is to persuade the European Union to issue EU passports to any EU citizens that are at risk of losing their rights and freedoms, in this case, as a result of Brexit.

You do not have to be a UK Citizen or a resident of Spain to take part!”

Services Offered – Steven Rowles Animal Healing

Steven Rowles Animal Healing has been going for many years now. It all began with his grandparents who had a small holding in Devon in the 1970’s where he spent many summer holidays as a child. Cows, goats, sheep, chickens and horses all made a regular appearance. Steven learnt to read an animals nature from his grandmother, as well as learning text book behaviour correction, from his grandfather. His grandparents always believed in an Organic and Natural way both with animals and food and passed on their passion to their grandson. Later in life Steven discovered his gift for esoteric healing practices and combined his love for animals with the two.

Behaviour Correction

Some Animals, just like us, get into bad habits. Dogs for instance can develop antisocial habits at home or while walking, but with a small amount of training, can be taught to behaviour in a more expectable manner. Other animals that have suffered trauma in their past are slightly more complex, and will need a more defined therapy to move through and out the other side of their fears.

What is Healing

The benefits of healing for humans is well documented with hundreds of studies having been done into the benefits of healing and how it can work. Of course the sceptics may say that there is a placebo effect, but that flies right out of the window with animals. Hands on healing works very well. In many cases dramatically. There is no placebo effect with animals. They do not have a faith, are not aware that I am a healer, nor aware of the benefits healing can give. When healing is given to them they take it readily and are ready to move on and gain all the wellbeing improvements. The healing that you give aims to help the animal rebalance and take over the recovery process.

Steven runs a mobile practice and works with Dogs, Cats and Horses. If your animal has behavioural issues, illness, or more, get in touch with Steven Rowles Animal Healing for more information.
