Holly Needs a Home 


Holly arrived at Christmas at the holiday home of some lovely people who fed her and looked after her together with their older cat. However the time soon came for them to go home so she has been in a foster home near Velez Malaga ever since.

She is about 5 – 5 ½ months old, has been neutered, vaccinated and treated against fleas and worms, is house trained and used to other animals and people.  She is very easy to love, a real character, full of fun and curiosity and able to entertain herself with a scratching post, a ping pong ball or two, an empty loo roll cardboard, a shoe box, and her squeaky toy so she is very easy to live with. She is incredibly calm, gentle and loving and just loves to sit on the settee with anyone so will make a wonderful companion.

If you could love this very sweet little tortoiseshell girl with a stumpy tail, please call 665 415 901 or email fiona dot found at gmail dot com (replacing dot and at with the appropriate symbols of course).

You certainly won’t regret it. She’s a real delight.




Thank you so much for the amazing response to my request yesterday for crutches. So many people replied with offers and information, and my husband is now scooting around the house!……. Well not exactly but is he able to get around much more comfortably.

The power of Digamextra!      Lizzie



Thank you to everyone who sent me information re business cards and glass cutting.



Thanks to Tony – Guns in Spain

I was very surprised to see an advert for a semi automatic air pistol.

There are laws on which guns etc are sold and a license has to be held even for children.

The sale of firearms should be forbidden on Digame whatever type they are.

For reference to laws click on link



(Editor’s note – so henceforth – no add in Digamextra  for firearms please. Jane)



Registering with Endesa

All the recent posts about Endesa reminds me of my problems registering. When I try, I get the error messages NIE or Capcha not valid, I have tried many times with the same result. I suspect that it is because I have got a “tarjeta de extranjero”, but that is not an option on the Endesa website.

There must be other Digamites with this type of NIE – and perhaps the same problems.

Does anyone have any clue as what to do?




Warning – Torrox Pueblo & Fibre Broadband…..

I must have a sign on my head that attracts these people.

Anyway, around 6 p.m. Yesterday a 30s something scruffy Spanish male called at my home in Torrox Pueblo.

He explained that fibre broadband was being installed in all of the pueblo and would be routed across the front of my and my neighbours houses.

I was immediately suspicious because – as I understand it – fibre optic broadband is installed in a central box and individual connections from subscribers run from said box to people’s property.

He then took out a form with a Jazztel? Logo and asked me for personal details. Suffice to say I declined. He wasn’t best pleased and demanded (not in a threatening way) to know what the problem was. I simply informed him that I didn’t want it and closed the door.

Had I been quicker thinking I should have tried to get a photo of him.

If I’m wrong and he was a genuine representative of this company then this is not the way to sell your product or service. Lee.

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.
