Padron – Correction

The information posted Tuesday is not correct.

Apart from exceptional circumstances, there is no longer any requirement

for EU citizens to renew their Padron every 5 years.

The relevant law is here.


Also, only “habitual” residents are required, by law, to sign on the Padron –

non residents are not allowed to, whatever the local Town Hall may say.

The relevant law is here – Article 15.


Many Town Halls flout these laws for their own benefit (the more people registered, the more subsidy they get from central government).

I have been on the Padron in my town for 17 years and have never been asked to renew my entry, even when I request an up to date copy of my registration.

Help Adoption

Hello, my name is Julio, I live in Rincon de la Victoria, I need adoption for two dogs.  Nowhere to go and no one seems to be able to help. But I cannot stay longer, I found them in the field and rescued with the idea that someone’s stray; he already makes it impossible for me to carry.

I think they are about 2 years old, are healthy. They are brothers. Sending some pictures, I hope you are able to help me. Thank you!

What’s On – Coraxalia Choir

For people who may be interested to hear about our latest performance, and may wish to join us
A wonderful experience
On 11th March Coraxalia Choir took part in ‘Cantemos’, the first International Choir Festival in Granada at the Manuel de Falla Concert Hall.  They performed Mozart’s Requiem which was accompanied by the Orchestra of the province of Granada.
On Coraxalia’s individual performance a professional music  critic reported:
“It was a “Susan Boyle “moment for the audience when they saw a somewhat ‘mature’ choir performing.  They were not expecting to hear such a fabulous sound and it made the audience sit up and take notice! “The feeling of teamwork shone in the performance of Coraxalia.” “Theirs was a  very professional, controlled and musical interpretation, which was consistent throughout their program.” “The general sound of the choir was very rich, without individual voices standing out or interrupting the flow of music, with a balanced use of the rubato.” “They showed that they really enjoyed performing together.” “They had the most enjoyable musical program of the night.” “Excellent tuning and good interpretive taste”. “As for the Requiem, the overall sound was phenomenal.” “I could have been listening to any professional choir.”
Coraxalia Choir continues to receive invitations to Choir Festivals for the upcoming season 2017-18, and invites new members to join them.  Contact eucorax @ hotmail.es for more information.

How 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
