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.


New €50 Banknote Arrives!





AAR volunteer appeal



Have fun learning better Spanish

Do you miss the opportunities to speak Spanish without stumbling over missing words?

Don´t you understand anything of what the butcher asks you?

Are you troubled whenever you must try to express yourself in Spanish?

Most of us are.

Would you like to be a guinea pig?

We are trying to form a group that will meet one hour a week only to use the Spanish language.

Are you a pure beginner, fine. You don’t have to say anything, just listen.

Do you know a little but need more, fine, you join the same group

Are you experienced but don’t get so many chances to use Spanish, fine, join us and speak.

The group will have a professional leader.

Number of participants a single meeting will be 4-10. More than 10 interested? We’ll just form a new group.

You don’t have to come every meeting, but since the restriction of participants, you must advice before you come.

If there is more than one group, you can attend any meeting in all groups there is.

We will develop this concept as we go on.

Interested? Call us, or give us a mail with names and number of interested people, possible weekdays, possible hours and we’ll get back to you.

We will be in Torrox pueblo but can of course arrange carpooling.
