Firearms – Clarification

Just to be clear, an air pistol is not a fire arm and does not require a fire arms licence.
A fire arm uses explosive fire to propel a bullet whilst an air gun uses compressed air of one sort or another.
Although the description of said pistol sounded like a lethal fire arm it was in fact a glorified air pistol using pellets or ball bearings. This type of air gun is used either for target practice or for the control of vermin. They can be easily purchased from most sports shops.

Warning – Torrox Pueblo & Fibre Broadband…..Response

We had a similar thing here in Caleta de Velez a few months ago.

Fibre Optic cable was being rolled out in this area, some of it underground and some of it above ground, depending on different conditions. We have cable above ground running across the front of our house.

This cable is being installed by Movistar ( Telefonica).

Around a week before the cable was installed we also had a visit from a guy from Jazztel, who gave us a form that he said was necessary for us to fill in to allow them to attach cable to our property. I too was dubious about this, and went to speak to the Movistar engineers who were installing the cables further along the street.

It turns out that the guy was working for Jazztel,  and if you signed the form you were signing up for Jazztel to supply Fibre Optic to your property, using the main cable laid by Movistar.

Now, I am not saying that Jazztel would be dearer  or cheaper than Movistar, or what level of service they would provide, however I felt that their sales techniques are somewhat dubious and decided to stay with Movistar.

I have heard that Fibre Optic is to be installed in Torrox Pueblo, and so Jazztel are probably using the same sales technique as they used in Caleta, so don’t sign anything unless you want to buy your service from them.

Steve, Caleta

Recommendation- Bianca at Casa Blanca, Torrox Costa

I would like to inform every one in the local Torrox and Penoncillo Beach Community about my experience with Bianca at Casa Blanca.

I have suffered with crippling Arthritis for the last 35 years which has been an ongoing painful process.

Bianca has treated me for the last 3 years with such kindness and gentle encouragement to get me through some of my most difficult times.

I suffer with poor circulation also which makes me very cold.

Her various modalities of treatment including the Bowen technique and Reflexology have certainly kept me going.

I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for long term treatment which is necessary when dealing with a situation like mine which does not go away.

It is part of an attitude to well being which one must try to stay on top of even when things do get very bad at times.

So thank you Bianca for all you have done and continue to do to keep me feeling as best as I can.

Holly Needs a Home 

holly-kitten

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.

 

 

Crutches

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?

Birgit

 

 

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.

Small Black Dog Found

found-lost-dog

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 –

(1)

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.

Services– Endesa Rates – Information Available…..

(1)

For those who are concerned about the price of electricity from Endesa after having a smart meter fitted this site may clear things up for you.

https://www.endesaclientes.com/free-market-regulated-market-pvpc

If you are on the wrong ‘market’ for your needs they do say that it is possible to change.

Personally, some time ago we contracted to Endesa’s ‘One Luz’ tariff (which still seems to be available online) and our bill heading indicates that we are on the ‘Free Market’.

I hope this helps….

Berty

 (2)

Although I am not the originator of the charges query, I for one am grateful of the response and common sense checks suggested by Chris.
I have looked at our old bills and compared the facts with the ones since having the new meter fitted.
All appears as it should be, the only difference is that our average consumption before the change was around 400-450 kwh for 2 months.
Now we have a similar average consumption for 1 month? Our usage has not changed that much, in fact we have been changing for led bulbs for some time now and use wood for winter heating.
The new meter was fitted in October, bearing in mind we have used some air con during the summer on the old meter, our winter costs should not be higher.
However, the average daily consumption has risen from 1.74€ to 3.73€ since the new meter!
I think it may be worth contacting Endesa and having a check performed on the new meter.
Thanks to Digamexstra readers for the response, it’s always good to have another opinion.

For sale  Book by Local Author

I think that some of your readers may be interested my book.

I suggest that a man could start a romantic Sunday morning by serving breakfast in bed.

The book is aimed at the partner in a relationship who rarely uses the kitchen.

I give simple breakfast ideas to spark the imagination, and even ideas for gifts

(a flower lasts a week, but silver lasts forever).

The book has absolutely nothing to do with sex, at least not directly.

It is all about breakfast in bed, and a little romance.

Interestingly, the most sales are to wives who buy the book as a present for their husbands.  🙂

Paperback: ISBN 9781910394717
Hardback: ISBN 9781910394724

What’s on- The Secret Language of Sacred spaces

Religious architecture of the world

A fully illustrated lecture in English by Jon Cannon

Sponsored by  Dr Rik Heymans, Nerja

From Chartres cathedral to Angkor Wat, religion has been the inspiration for many of the greatest buildings of the world. Indeed, for much of human history, the story of architecture and the story of faith were synonymous.

This lecture explains the architecture of each of the major faith traditions, revealing how it is shaped by their rituals and beliefs. It briefly covers the sacred architecture of such early societies as Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Americas before focusing on the living faiths: the great continuities embodied in the sacred architecture of Buddhism and Hinduism, and the revolutionary changes brought about in monotheistic Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It thus brings fresh insights into some of the most remarkable buildings on the planet.

The aim is to leave the audience understanding why and how (for example) a mosque is different from a synagogue or a church (and how they interrelate), as well as having a ‘big picture’ overview of what is happening where and when in the sacred buildings of planet earth.

It should go without saying that the illustrations cover a sequence of the greatest buildings on the planet. Many are taken from my sumptuous book on the subject

About Jon Cannon

“I have a vocation, and it’s to do with places; with communicating, enthusing, analyzing – in short, extolling – about the nature of ‘old places’, and what makes them tick. I get especially excited about the sacredness of place, and the human place-making that results from it: a po-faced way of saying I love religious architecture in particular. English medieval churches are my academic specialism.

In any case, this a calling without a career structure. Writing lies at the heart of it, but like many writers I do other things which help earn a living and which arise from the expertise I’ve gathered on the way. But these, for me, are not add-ons: lecturing, teaching and tour-leading, copywriting and editing for heritage organizations, academic research: all are essential elements in what is a seamless and overlapping range of concerns. You can find out more about each, or contact me direct, via this website.

You might, indeed, come across my books, such as Cathedral: the great English cathedrals and the world that made them, published by Constable in 2007 and now out in paperback; or The Secret Language of Sacred Spaces, was published in late 2013; the Shire book of Medieval Church Architecture came out in July 2014; I am currently writing a major work on the British landscape, slated for publication in 2016. You might also have come across my BBCTV documentary, How to Build a Cathedral, which was widely praised.

Among other things, I teach regularly at the University of Bristol (mainly in the History of Art department), lead tours for Martin Randall Travel and others; am a Lay Canon (keeper of the fabric) at Bristol cathedral, and am a Member of Council for the British Archaeological Association. I am also an accredited NADFAS lecturer. My piece of journalism about North Korea (east Asia plays a big part in my life: my wife is the Chinese author Liu Hong) for the London Review of Books some years ago was shortlisted for the David Watt Memorial Prize.”

Caravan Storage in Cantabria/Asturias

I am looking to take a touring caravan to the north of Spain and keep it there for a whole year.

The idea is to store it somewhere and then take it to a caravan site for a couple of months in spring and again in autumn.

I have tried many caravan sites directly but despite them being open all year none of them have offered what I need.

Can anyone give me any ideas/information please?

Contact via e-mail at …Jeffwin2 @ aol dot com

 

 

Endesa Charges

There is no reason why a meter replacement should lead to an increase in billing, but if this happens, you need to look closely at the bill that was received after the meter was replaced:

– has the number of units (kWh) used gone up?

– has the price per unit changed?

– have any other monthly/bi-monthly charges increased?

– has Endesa ‘accidentally’ transferred you on to another tariff when the meter was changed?

This last is particularly important, as (for example) if you were on a DH (dual-tariff, peak/offpeak) contract, and you switched to a standard tariff, then your bill, and all the extra bits added, will increase significantly.

You need to look at your first new bill forensically!  This sometimes isn’t made easy by it being a “split bill” involving two sets of meter readings.  (When doing the meter swap-out, Endesa should have provided you with the old meter’s final reading, and the new one’s starting figure (possibly 0000).)  A subsequent bill should be easier to read.

So, three important things:

– How many units (kWh) did we consume?

– How much per unit were we charged?

– Are we on the right (same) tariff?

Occasional Accommodation wanted
We are building a house at the Caleta end of Torre del Mar, due to be completed at the end of this year.  We need to make short trips to the project for a few days at a time.  Having stayed in apartments and hotels in Torre, we are struggling to find somewhere convenient with a decent sized comfortable bed where we can get a good night’s sleep.
If anyone can recommend somewhere near to the hospital, Caleta end of Torre or maybe has a spare room or apartment that is sometimes empty, we’d be very interested in exploring an arrangement.  We could even buy a bed and linen that we would move to our new house in due course.  Also having somewhere we can leave a small case or box of bits and pieces to avoid having to ferry them back and forth would be great and it would be good to make some contacts in the area!  Kerry @ interfacing.co.uk.  Thank you!

What’s on –Weekend in Morocco

The Phoenix Trip are planning a weekend in Morocco in May visiting Chefchaouen, Fez and Asilah

The itinerary is:

1st Day – Tarifa/Tangier/Chefchaouen/Fez

We embark on a fast catamaran to Tarifa (45 minutes crossing).  On arrival, we complete border procedures and continue to the picturesque village of Chefchaouen, with a brief visit with a local guide

Founded in 1471 by Moulay Ali Ben Moussa Ben Rached El Alami, Chefchaouen served as a Moorish fortress for exiles from Spain. Over the centuries, the city grew and welcomed Jews and Christian converts alike.

Chefchaouen’s powder-blue buildings mirror the cloudless Moroccan sky – but religious rather than stylistic reasons are behind the design choice. Jewish teachings suggest that by dyeing thread withtekhelel (an ancient natural dye) and weaving it into prayer shawls, people would be reminded of God’s power. The memory of this tradition lives on in the regularly repainted blue buildings.

Nowadays Chefchaouen is a rich cultural tapestry of Berber tribespeople, Muslims and Jews, along with descendants of the Moorish exiles from Spain who lived there in the 1400s. Berber tribespeople can be seen wearing distinctive cotton clothing paired with woven hats that are decorated with brightly coloured threads.

Continue to Fez.  Arrival at the Hotel Sofia.

2nd Day Fez

After breakfast we have a tour with a local guide.  Fez is classified as the “Universal Cultural Patrimony” by UNESCO.  It is the first of the Imperial Cities, since it dates back to the 8th Century.  It is also the first Muslim cult city of Morocco and owns one of the oldest universities in the world, before the Sorbonne of Paris.

Highlights are Los Zocos; The Mellah (former Jewry); The Doors of the Wall, among which Bab Bou Jeloud, built by the Almohads in the 18th century and Bab Shorfa and Bab Ftouh, deserve special mention; Dar El Makhzen (the royal palace) with its stunning golden gates (not open to the public); Plaza Neyyarin (cabinetmakers) houses an extraordinary fountain; etc. Free time in the afternoon.

An ancient breeding ground for scholars and artisans, imams and gourmands – Fez is a supremely self-confident city with a historical and cultural lineage that beguiles visitors. And there is something intangibly raw about a place where 70,000 people still choose to live in the maelstrom of a medina so dark, dense and dilapidated that it remains the world’s largest car-free urban area. Donkeys cart goods down the warren of alleyways as they have done since medieval times, and ruinous pockets loom around every corner – though a government drive to restore Fès el-Bali to its former glory is spurring changes.

Fez’ medina can seem like it’s in a state of perpetual pandemonium; some visitors fall instantly in love and others recoil in horror. But its charms are many. Seemingly blind alleys lead to squares with exquisite fountains and streets bursting with aromatic food stands, rooftops unveil a sea of minarets, and stooped doorways reveal the workshops of tireless artisans.

Dinner and overnight at the hotel.

3rd Day –  Fez/Asilah/Tangier/Tarifa

Breakfast and we depart to the coastal city of Asilah, where on arrival you will have free time to stroll through the Alcazaba near the sea and wander in its many shops.

The tortilla, paella and Rioja served in most of Asilah’s restaurants are reminders that this compact town was Spanish territory for a long time. The town is sleepy for most of the year, but in the summer months its population triples and the streets and town beach are crammed with sun-seeking Moroccan and Spanish families, some of whom retain holiday houses here. The best time to visit is in spring or autumn when the weather is still pleasant but the holiday hordes have left.

Continue to Tangier and exit on a fast catamaran towards Tarifa.

Warning

Just a note to warn you all about a scam I was caught out by on last Friday evening.  I was walking back from Mercadona in Torre del Mar when I car pulled up and the driver asked (in English) for directions to the hospital.  This is a request I get fairly regularly so I didn’t smell a rat.  After I’d given the directions a woman in the back thanked me profusely and offered me a ´gold´ chain which she put around my neck.  They then sped off.  The penny then dropped and when I checked, sure enough in one deft movement she’d taken my real gold chain, which my wife had bought me nearly forty years ago.  I reported the theft to the police and later rang Linea Directa with the denuncia duly signed and stamped by the police, only to be told that my policy wouldn’t cover the theft as there was no violence, or weapon used.

So, be warned…

Responses – Endesa Prices

(1)

In reply to the article about electricity charges.
We have the same problem, our monthly costs have actually doubled since a new ‘smart’ meter was fitted October last year.
I have contacted Endesa and they say that the readings are true, I can have the meter checked by an engineer but if found to be correct there would be a charge!
Before the new meter we paid 2 monthly, now we pay roughly the same monthly, 100% increase!
I asked them to explain why there was so much of an increase without any success?
Also the new meter can check your contracted power allowance. I am hoping this will not mean an increase in the ‘potencia’ agreement and another cost increase!
I would be interested to see if this is a common complaint before committing to have the meter checked.

The person querying their bills doesn’t say whether it is just the bill that has risen, or the kWh usage compared to normal.

Since ours was installed on 28 October we have received monthly bills which initially did seem to be higher than before. However, it has been a colder winter which has meant we have used an additional electric heater and the water heater more, and comparing 28 October to 28 December 2015 and 2016, they are possibly correct due to the extra heating we have used.

27/10 -28/12/15 448kWh cost 110€. Two bills covering 28/10 – 26/12/16 total 509 kWh costing 121.75€

We will keep monitoring it, especially in the summer when we only have electric water heating and fans, so they should be comparable to previous years’ kWh usage.

if you want to argue your case at Endesa I suggest the following:-   http://www.endesaclientes.comcitaprevia.

This will allow you to get an appointment after 1700.  The form can be read and completed in English but the last page for your info is in Spanish.

Not hard but where it says correos, they do not want a street address but

an email address.

You need copy of passport and nie card.  To substantiate usage we photographed the meter at noon for 4 days and they accepted that as our normal usage.

Was in Velez office at 1700 and out by 1720.

Cuts into afternoon drinking but only takes 29 minutes.

643 195 015 is my mobile if you need some help, no charge, might cost you a beer.

Services Available- Response to email Yesterday.

Please let me reassure all readers that as a group of qualified, registered and insured Carers, we are not an agency but more of a co-operative that work independently and also as a team.

We work alongside medical professionals who are of course registered in Spain and can legally work here.  As experienced, capable and competent Carers we put together Care plans with our clients and their families for the greater good of our patients.

The ‘package deal’ that we refer to is simply a route taken by agencies or occasionally nurses, whereby they ‘sub-contract’ Carers to work as part of a team, and then they charge a commission on top for organising the package.  We are more than capable of organising rota’s and shifts, covering holidays and sickness etc. with no need to add to the clients costs.  The client pays the Carers directly without needing to go through the third party and paying their commission.

We have had a good response to our advert with English nurses that are currently undergoing the registration process here in Spain.  These are individuals who are happy to work with us and not ‘sub-contract’ us.  We look forward to updating Digamextra in the future, so that clients can think carefully when making the right care choices for their loved ones.

Services – A serious Comment

I am writing regarding my concerns relating to an advertisement on Digame, Wednesday of this week.

As an English nurse with 40 years experience, I do not comprehend how this Carers’ agency can recruit an English nurse unless said nurse has qualified here in Spain too.  We cannot practice without this dual registration and would actually be working without any professional indemnity. This could in fact lead to being struck off in the UK as unprofessional conduct as it is downright illegal and would be construed as malpractice. It concerns me that someone running a care agency doesn’t know this.
Regarding the statement ” We will not work as part of a ‘package deal’ so please do not respond if that is your field.” I am confused by the meaning of this. Every patient/client is individual and a personal Care plan must be put in place for the greater good of the patient. This is to ensure continuity, in both the standard and type of care to be given. This is the package for that patient’s needs.

Whilst, the need for carers is very necessary, it is also imperative that the correct knowledge and experience is to hand. Unfortunately,  a little bit of knowledge can be very dangerous with dire consequences.

There are many English nurses living here, but the only person I know of with the relevant qualifications is called Liz Brown. She covers a very wide area, Nerja and surrounding areas and has widened her patch taking in Torre del Mar, La Vinuela etc. If you Google English Nurse Competa the you can get more information including testimonials.

I only know of Liz Brown through a patient, praising her highly. Please think very carefully when choosing the right care for your loved ones.

Opinion – Ryanair  (No more items on this subject will be published)

I would like to reply to the ‘Tail Torrox’ post today and ask why they felt it necessary, when making a plea for help, to have an uncalled for ‘pop’ at Ryanair – I quote – “I’m sure many other Airlines do a good job except Ryanair

(another reason NOT to fly with them!)”

This is unjustified and had nothing to do with the subject.  Ryanair have given good service to many expats out here, considerably reducing the cost of travel for visiting family and for friends visiting us here.  They give a good reliable service, with the best on time record in Europe. They are not the only airline who do not carry animals, few in fact do. It is not luxury but it is very cheap. What do people expect?  I think of it as an air bus service. Has anyone has a ‘penny’ flight to the UK on any other airline? My granddaughter has on Ryanair.  Will any other airline offer €9.99 to Barcelona?  Time for people to show some respect.  This airline has changed air travel for the better.  The Royal princes flew back from a Scottish wedding on Ryanair, so if it is good enough for them……

Warning !

Yesterday at Torrox Costa a young dark haired woman approached me asking for money for food and putting her hand towards me as if wanting me to shake it. She eventually took hold of my hand and within a blink of an eye she almost had my watch off my wrist. She was an extremely skilled operator. She was small, little overweight with very dark hair tied back. Not sure of her nationality but she spoke Spanish. Be careful!  Lee

 

 

Volunteer groups here on the Costa del Sol? /Responses

(1)

You may be interested in the web-site:  Paz-park.com.

Look for the British flag for English text on the site.

They sponsor reforestation in Canillas de Albaida and Competa, etc…

My good friend Gil, who runs the Graphic Express shop on the service road across from Aldi in Caleta, started this ecologically minded non-profit a few years

back.  They have a number of activities including clean-up, tree plantation, etc… Enjoy Paz-park.com for more details or visit Gil (a special human being) in his shop.

From Norma in Velez.

(2)

I am not sure volunteer groups are needed for the beaches here in the Axarquia.  In Torre del Mar (and probably the other towns too), the beaches are cleaned every day by the town hall.

In fact a voluntary scheme would be a bad idea as it would take away much needed employment.

They also regularly wash and clean the streets and tidy up generally on a daily basis.

If you don’t mind your Facebook page being inundated with posts you can follow their work on their Facebook page – “tenencia de alcaldía de torre del mar”.   With regard to recycling, it is frustrating if people don’t use the correct bins, although I haven’t noticed too many errors in my area.

However,  to defend Spain, at least we get the main bins emptied daily and there are loads of recycling bins around for everything, from used cooking oil to batteries and everything in-between.  Linda

 

 

UK bought electrical items work in Spain? 

We’re moving to Competa soon and have a Miele dishwasher and AEG all electric cooker which we want to bring with us.

Does anyone with electrical knowledge know if they will work OK in Competa?

If so, is there an electrician out there that could connect our cooker?

We’re also seeking a plumber to connect our dishwasher; plumbing will need to be installed.

If you can help answer our electrical question, or with the work we require please email kmmiddleton @ yahoo dot co dot uk or    phone 0044(0) 7866 626 391. Sorry no Spanish phone yet.

 

 

Flight Partner for Dog- Advice & Encouragement

Dear Digamist, I read that a flight partner is needed for a dog going to Germany and would like to reassure you that it’s really easy to be a flight partner (Especially with Transavia Airline).

They fly to Amsterdam and Eindhoven but that’s also very close to the German border.

I’m sure many other Airlines do a good job except Ryanair

(another reason NOT to fly with them!)

I have been a flight partner a number of times and it’s really easy,

when you book your flight, all you need do to do is email the organizations

and give them your flight details

(There are no costs for the passenger, it’s all done by the rescue organization via their credit card onto your flight ticket, dogs are not allowed to fly alone without a passenger.).

At the other end, you pick up the dog like you do a suitcase and when you walk out, the new owners are waiting teary eyed and full of appreciation.

It’s heart warming to see that another sweetie has found a loving home…

So I hope that all you frequent flyers will give your heart a push and give it a try. Remember “A good deed a day “….

Please email to the below organisation if you can help. Thank you

Recommendation Needed please- Building/Furnishing Projects

I have several house building/furnishing projects that I need to get cracking on and wonder if any Digamites out there can recommend appropriate companies or individuals to do them.

Specifically, I’m looking for

1)  A carpenter to build from wood, some simple bed frames, a few shelves and perhaps a bookcase or two.  I know, of course, that there are many, many premade ones available, but I have in mind something specific that I can’t find at any stores and/or built-in.

2) A maker of aluminum and mirror sliding doors, such as those that would be used on closets.

3) A source for a glass shower panel…the kind that goes from floor to ceiling, with no metal rod to support it

4) A source for custom made wood and glass interior doors.

Suggestions would be much appreciated!

Recommendation – for Steven Rowles Animal Healing practice.

Dear Readers

Some four weeks ago I contacted Steven Rowles Animal Healing about our dog. He was recommended to me through a friend of mine that keeps horses. She had engaged him to work with them and had apparently had amazing results. My friend I might add, is not the type to recommend anyone easily, so I took this recommendation seriously.

My husband and I had, some time ago, had taken on a crossbreed dog which we ourselves rescued off the street, and before long was showing a menagerie of issues and was turning our lives upside down. I often ended up in tears with frustration especially at the destructive behaviour in the house. My husband was actively looking for an alternative home.

Six sessions later with Steven we have a new life and strangely in all but appearance a new dog. I cannot recommend this man and his techniques, highly enough.

Please spread the word.

Long Term RentalWebsite Available ?

Is there a website where owners advertise their properties direct and do not go through agencies. (We have tried Owners Direct without success).

We have been trying to rent long term between Nerja and Torre del Mar for some time but all the properties are either rented out or not available.

The other problem we have found is that enquires are not answered (especially by the English agency in Torre del Mar.)

Any information would be appreciated.
