Torrox Attack

To All ,  Be aware! Last Friday evening approximately 9.30 pm I was attacked from behind as I was about to get into my car.I was parked in the centre of the top car park (olive factory ) the first I recall is a hand with some sort of rubber glove ( garden type ) over my mouth and my head jerked from the left to right very hard my spectacles were swiped away and my teeth were broken and  two back teeth diss lodged.
The culprit shouted something ( Spanish maybe) which I did not understand but I resisted and managed to stab him with the car key for what good it was ,I then felt his hand go into my left pocket and he removed  approximately 65 euros.He then pushed me forward into the car door and legged it,he was accompanied by another.
This cowardly deed I reported the police and guardia who took full statements from me.
I am aware that this message is late ,but my wife was on a cruise and reads the post , it may be selfish but I did not want to upset her,because she would have asked me !
I had emergency dental treatment on Saturday and must thank Graham from Torrox village for his help with emergency treatment with my teeth ( no steak for a while)
I had injuries to my shoulder and ribs , but think it was with my resistance
I have mailed this to make people aware
One small addition there was NO lighting on Friday evening but ‘he ho ‘it was working on Saturday.

Dee (proprietor) tells me that all being well they will be open as usual the beginning of March.    Michele



Advice please – Transportation of vital supplies to East Africa

After visiting and staying with hard working people in local homes in Uganda and Kenya my friend and I would like to help them to survive in some way . They desperately need  second hand English books , clothes , shoes , bed sheets , Smart Phones and toys. We have the local contacts now to collect the donated stuff from Kampala , Kisumu, Nairobi or the sea port of Mombasa.

We realize that government corruption is a major problem but still want to help if we can . Have any Digame readers any advice please ?

Or any ideas of how it can be done
Thank you
Sandra and Judy

Update on Smart Phones for Uganda 

Thank you very, very much to the 3 very kind Digame people who donated an old Smart phone for genuine students to access their university studies.

As you can see, I handed them over in face to face .

They were absolutely delighted and one was moved to tears .
Thank you very much again


 Women Welcome World Wide 


Sandra and I stayed in the homes of these lovely 5W ladies in Kenya and were treated like royalty at times visiting schools, churches, local events etc.
5W is a well established organisation  (30+years) that enables single ladies to travel and see the world with local ladies as guides

Maybe it is something you could consider before you are too old to travel ?
There is information on line or contact me for more information

Services Available-Music Therapy in Torrox

The benefits of music on our brain are undeniable. “Over the past decade there has been an explosion in research activities on music perception and performance, and their correlates in the human brain. This sudden increase in scientific work on music has been motivated in part by the idea that music offers a unique opportunity to better understand the organization of the human brain. The other major motivation for exploring the neural substrates of musical activities is that they may shed light on the functional origin and biological value of music. Like language, music exists in all human societies. Like language, music is a complex, rule-governed activity, and appears to be associated with a specific brain architecture. Moreover, sensitivity to musical structure develops early in life, without conscious effort, in the large majority of the population. Music also appears to be specific to humans, although some investigators have begun to examine its possible evolutionary origins in other species’.” The Cognitive Neuroscience of Music. Oxford University.

We believe passionately in the power of music to make the most of people’s potential overcoming obstacles; depression, disability, trauma, mental illness…

Come and enjoy 2 hours of music experimentation and games in a friendly atmosphere. Songs in Spanish, English, French, Swahili…

Recommendation –Re-painting you vehicle

If you want to repaint your car the same or a different colour then read on

re how I repainted my 20 year old Renault Clio  which was a bit of a mess.

First I found a good paint shop where they mixed paint to my satisfaction, then I rubbed the car down with wire wool then, after masking up with tape.

With a 4″ roller I rolled the paint onto the car.

It turned out to be a fantastic looking car. the paint shop was

Velez Malaga tel, 952 502 776

It is a mother and daughters business and they were very helpful.

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.

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.
