New Rules to Remember (and abide by….)

There are several days per week now when I have to spend over 5 hours processing submissions & readying our Blog for publication – that’s more than I want to cope with! hence the following advice……


Bars, Restaurants & Clubs –

Please limit your entries to One per Week!

I suggest you list your programme of events & send it Tues/ Weds for inclusion in the Thursday Issue.

Identification Information for Everyone

I will not be able to publish your entries unless you have included your name, location & contact information ( phone number &/or email address)

I had 8 (!) people email me today without this information. Unbelievable!               Faulty Submissions.

If I have time, I can email you to ask for corrections, extra info. etc. etc.

However, if I don’t have the time then your email will simply be deleted on

a daily basis along with all the others received that day.

Negative Reviews

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.

For Sale Items – Repeats

No repeats accepted under 4 weeks & pictures unusable unless in JPEG format.

Photos take up much of my time – downloading, resizing, copying and retrieving to put in the ads

Nevertheless, wouldn’t be without them !

Deadline for  Items in 4pm daily – to this address (janekirkspain@gmail.com)

The decision about what to publish is mine,

if I don’t want to publish then I won’t


Please do not type whole words IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

Only the first letter can be in Upper Case.




Curly (alias Penny) – A Very Big Thank You!

Many of you may recognise Curly, who until recently was loose on the streets of Competa. I know that she stole the hearts of many people but remained at large as she was just too nervous to be caught. Well last month Wills and I rescued Curly from the Perrera where she had been taken following darting by the police. Eleanor Fearn was very instrumental in getting her out and I could not have done it without her. Ten days later Curly (now named Penny) gave birth to 11 puppies, 9 of which survived.

Since then I have been overwhelmed by the kindness of people who have helped contribute towards the expenses involved with the puppies, especially as the response from a local charity was disappointing. We now have enough to vaccinate and chip all the puppies when the time comes. However, there are many ongoing costs and I am immensely grateful to all those who have given money or left gifts with NaturVets for us.

It has really helped us as we have retired to Competa on a limited income.

The whole experience of rescuing Curly has brought me into contact with many compassionate dog-lovers in Competa who care deeply but do not really know how to help. I am trying to start a network of such people and will publish an article in Grapevine in May on how this might help the dogs and how such a network would work. The organisation will be called LIGHTHOUSE.

If you would like to know more please contact me on linsi @ lnznwills. com

and I will send you some information.

Recommendation- Warren

Our car was valued on webuyanycar.com at £350.

So we decided with its lowish mileage and good reliability to bring it to Spain, have plates changed to Spanish and get it a good clean.

We used Warren as we had seen people’s recommendations here on Digamextra.

Well, he didn’t just clean it – he gave it a complete makeover inside and out and under the bonnet.

The soft top cleaned, re-coloured and treated as was the interior leather and carpets.

Headlights were changed to comply with the law here.

We are delighted with the outcome, we feel like we have a new car not one almost 20years old.

What’s On- Lux Mundi Crystal Healing plus other events 

On Monday 3rd April, Linda Williamson will be at Bar La Vega, Torre del Mar, at 12.30 giving a talk on Crystal Healing.

As a Crystal Therapist, Linda knows which to select, and how to use them for your benefit.
Crystal healing is a very effective way of using the healing power of rocks and using the vibration of each crystal to re-balance your energies, clear your meridians and chakras and heal your mind, body and your spirit (your spirit is actually you … It’s your energy, personality and life experiences that continue on, long after your physical body has turned to dust).
As you’re probably aware, everything around us is made of energy vibrating at its own individual frequency.
As a qualified Crystal & Gemstone Therapist, Linda chooses the crystals which match your own vibration and so have the best healing potential for you at that moment in time. Working intuitively, Linda can sense issues which need particular attention.
So do come along, you never know, it may be very beneficial to you.

As always there will be time for questions and a tapa or two.

To help with numbers attending, RSVP to Gail please
