  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.



Recommendation –Air Conditioning

We can thoroughly recommend “Dr Frio”.

Martin installed our new air con quickly, neatly and efficiently.

His telephone number is 679 814258.

Sue Ball



Recommendation- Air Conditioning

I tried to reply to the person wanting a recommendation for air conditioning, but the mail kept coming back.

I can highly recommend Keith from Cooltec services. He has over 30 years experience. Is very reliable and does a great job. His number is 663728798



Recommendation Needed Please –Clausula Suelo enquiry

Would the person who recently posted their experience of using a lawyer with regard to their mortgage repayments be kind enough share with me the name of said lawyer?

Many thanks.  Linda
