Digamextra No. 546 Thursday March 30th 2017 

 Welcome to DigameXtra ! 

The content of this site comes from its Subscribers.

Editor –  Jane Kirk.

Send in your text (& photos in JPEG format)  The Daily Deadline is 4p.m.

The address for your Posts is  janekirkspain @ gmail.com (no spaces)



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.

I have read and heard this rumour that drivers will be required to have breathalysers in their cars starting this month and so I asked the Guardia Trafico guys on Facebook N332 and they said it is not true!




Choir – New Term Starting 

Do you like singing?  Would you like to join a choir?  We are inviting new singers to become members of the local, long-established choir, Coral Coraxalia under the leadership of Eusebio Pita.

From Torre Del Mar.  From the shopping mall motorway Junction 272, take the A356  towards the mountains.   At Junction KM38 at the end of the bridge,, turn right to Las Gómez, La Viñuela, A7205.  Left at t-junction towards Viñuela.  Go through the village of Las Gómez and on a right hand bend just after KM 2, you will see a new roundabout.  On the left is a white single storey building where we rehearse ( La Casa Cultura) at 5.30 to 8.00.   10 mins.

This Easter in Nerja Canis Connection will have a special camp for the week where your little ones can learn just that, and with extra special doggies from APA Nerja which all have that special story. The future is to teach our young ones that it is not correct to mistreat animals, it is not correct to abandon them when not wanted and what can happen if you don’t castrate your dog and you end up with a litter of unwanted puppies. Most importantly this camp will teach your little ones what is involved in taking a dog into your family and all the needs they may have. To put your little ones name down please contact Cristina Navarro.
Daniella,my daughter, will be there, please go and join her and meet our Apa dogs at the same time

What’s on –Phoenix Club

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 crystals 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.

On Monday the 10th April at 12.30 The Phoenix Club is hosting an informative talk on several topics including Residencia and Empadronado by Myra Cecilia Azzopardi from the Citizens Advice Bureau, Spain.

There is so much confusion regarding some of these subjects and Cecilia will be able to sort the wood fom the trees.

On Monday 24th April at 12.30 The Phoenix Club welcome the Guardia Civil who will be giving a talk on:

Crime prevention

Current crime

True stories

Neighbourhood watch

Animal cruelty

Traffic matters and reporting and dealing with police in Spain
There will be opportunity for q and a on all these subjects and a tapa or two to enjoy, to help with numbers RSVP to Gail.
