Guitar Player Needs instrument to Rent

Guitar Players: I play guitar and I will be vacationing in Torrox Costa (last house at the end of the Promenade) for 6 weeks beginning March 11, 2017.  I can’t bring my guitar on vacation because of the new airline charges for musical instruments. But I’d still like to play some while on vacation and maybe play at an “open mic” or two.  If you have more than one guitar, would you be willing to let me use one of your extra guitars while I’m on vacation?  I would be willing to pay $50.00 rental.  Let me know what kind of guitar you have (with pic if possible) and email me at tennisne1@yahoo.com and I”ll get back to you immediately. Thanks for your understanding.  Buzz Gillis USA   PS: Let me know if you would like to jam sometime too.

What’s on at Restaurant El Pino this Saturday




What’s not open- La Tasca closed Fri+Sat 3+4th Feb

We apologize to our customers but we are closed this Friday+Sat. Open again on Monday 6th Feb. The Axarquia animal quiz is on Wed 8th at 3pm. Please call 640328051 or 640569988 if you would like to attend. All proceeds for the animals. We are in Torre del Mar across from the police station.



What’s on– Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar

Saturday 4th March – World Women´s Day of Prayer.  At the Centre, all are welcome men, women and children to join us and friends from over 170 countries in a common day of prayer.  This year the worship service focuses on “Am I being unfair to you?”  Matthew 20:1-16. Prepared by women of the Philippines. Time 17.00.

Thursday 23rd March – Coach Excursion to Olvera and Setenil de las Bodegas.   Lux Mundi, Torre del Mar, invites you to join friends on a coach excursion where you will first visit the picturesque town of Olvera, situated north east of Ronda.  The original settlement is more than 2 thousand years old and was added to by the Phoenicians and Romans, followed by the Moors in the 9th century who held it until King Alfonso XI conquered it in 1327.  On arrival, at approximately 10.30, there will be free time for coffee and to climb to the castle which was constructed at the end of 12th century, mostly in the 13th, on a strategic rock giving the ability to communicate with other nearby castles through signals. Also dominating the area is the Nuestra Señora de la Encarnacioñ church constructed in 1822 and finished in 1843 and is one of the greatest churches of the province and in fact hides one of Andalucía’s best small museums behind its imposing bulk. The town was declared a centre of artistic and historic importance in 1983. You may also visit the Plaza de Andalusia which has a majestic stone fountain/waterfall and great rock garden. In the old part of town its origins are evident with narrow streets, strategic corners, old cottages etc, exposing the visitor to the old architecture of the Muslim town entwined with the modern.

You will leave Olvera at 13.00 for the short half hour drive to the unique village of Setenil de las Bodegas set in a backdrop of huge cliffs, above the Rio Trejo.  The blinding white houses seem to emerge from the rocks; some have rock roofs and even olive groves on their roofs. You will have free time for lunch and a walk around the village departing at approximately 16.15, for the return journey to Torre del Mar arriving at 18.00 approximately.  Lux Mundi suggest that you can research the relevant web sites and tourist offices for more information as to what can be visited and seen during your free time in both towns.  Ticket price 20 Euros available at the Centre.  Proceeds for fund raising.  Departure times Viñuela (Football Pitch) 07.50, Algarrobo (Lidl) 08.15, Caleta (Vets) 08.20, Torre del Mar (Bus Station) 08.30.

For further information and bookings please contact the Centre, Torre del Mar Tel.952 543 334 E-mail: luxmundi@lux-mundi.org  .Please note you are unable to make bookings through the web site and sorry we cannot accept cards

What’s onTrip to the zoo at Castellar de la Frontera

The Phoenix Club are off to the Zoo at Castellar de la Frontera on Friday 17th March 2017.

About the Zoo de Castellar – The ‘zoo’ de Castellar is not your typical zoo.

It was started as a private rescue sanctuary back in 1998 and was finally

opened to the public in 2002.

For years it remained relatively unknown and unvisited. Word of mouth ensuring its survival. Bit-by-bit things are beginning to change.

All of the animals have been rescued by the customs or police.

Its location is of no coincidence, conveniently located near the border; most of the residents were victims of illegal animal smuggling between Europe and Africa.  Some were also rescued from circuses.

From its most famous resident ‘Princessa’, a four month old Bengali Tiger to emus, Vietnamese pot bellied pigs, monkeys, all kinds of birds, a hyena, rabbits, even domestic chickens, the zoo has a wide diversity of animals. Over 500 to be exact, from 120 different species.

The refuge centre opened its doors to the public in 2002, mainly to raise funds for the ever increasing number of animals but also in an attempt to educate visitors to their plight.

The zoo is very open and interactive; we are encouraged to touch and meet the animals.

The facilities are basic and are constantly being updated. You can buy small bags of seeds for 1€ as you enter and can walk around feeding the animals.

There are not many places where you can play with a live tiger or feed lemurs by hand.

The price?  €30pp includes a €1 gratuity for the driver.

Lunch is extra and is at the Castle
Depart Algarrobo Lidl at 07.30 with a stop for breakfast
Early booking is recommended if you like a particular place, as seat numbers are allocated on a first come, first served basis.  For more information on any of our trips or events call Gail on 951 067 723,

The Phoenix Club is a registered association raising funds for 3 local charities and SSAAFA in the UK.  We meet every Tuesday at the bar restaurant La Vega in Torre del Mar between 12 and 2pm and you can book or pay from 12.15 onwards.  Do pop in and meet us.  You can find La Vega behind the Repsol Garage on the way out of Torre towards Benajarafe.

bell-ringer718How to place an article on DigameXtra!

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 format…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.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
