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.

 

 

Nerja 41 member stars in ‘Flog it’ TV programme pics

One of Nerja 41 Club’s members (Ex Round Tablers) Robert Drysdale along with his wife Rosemary have managed to appear on the ‘Flog It’ program and have supplied the following article.

The TV programme ‘FLOG IT’ came to Herstmonceux Castle East Sussex and we went along with a gold Hunter Pocket watch. We arrived at the Castle at 7.30am for the doors opening at 9.00 and were already about 60th in the queue. When let in we were marshalled into an area of about 6 valuers who were looking at every item.  Our valuer was impressed by the watch and after checking with James Lewis confirmed that James would like to film it. It was about 11.00 and we were taken to a holding room where we were given tea/coffee and sandwiches. That day they were filming 4 episodes and there were about 30 people in the room. We were called at about 2.30 and did the filming with James. During the filming an estimate of £800 to £900 was agreed on the watch.   We were surrounded by cameras with a Director and the whole shoot took about 45 minutes. A bit like Hollywood !!!  Obviously there was a lot of subsequent editing. We finally left the Castle at about 4.00pm.

The Auction at Rye was three weeks later which gave them time to catalogue and advertise the items on the internet. The result was exciting as the watch fetched £1,400.  Not quite a ‘Fools and Horses’ moment. But as Del said “we’ve had worst days”.

James Lewis and Paul Martin were good and courteous company. We also met and chatted to Jonathon Pratt and Catherine Southon. The whole thing was a great experience.

Nerja 41 Club are always looking for Ex Round Tablers

to join our 44 members from 10 different Countries.  Please contact Alfie Fornear on 626998626 or a.fornear @ hotmail.com or 41clubnerja.org

Recommendation –Interpreter for Medical Issues

For anyone who needs to go to the doctor or any of the hospitals,

my advice is to take an interpreter with you.

The interpreter I recommend and use is Pamela.

I have been with her, on and off, for four years.

She’s reliable, She’s helpful and more importantly she knows what

she’s doing.

She’s used to the hospital environment and knows her way round

all the major hospitals and clinics.

She charges a flat fee, so your not presented with a huge bill

at the end of a long wait out side the doctors surgery

If you need to get in touch her number is  609040709.

You’ll not be disappointed.

Recommendation- Steven Rowles Animal Healing and Behavioural Therapy

I can’t recommend Steve Rowles enough for animal healing. He has been giving healing to one of my horses for a number of weeks, initially for a skin condition which is showing good progress, but the biggest difference I have noticed is in the inner horse. He is so much brighter in the eye, more willing and generally a much happier horse all round. Our hoof trimmer has also noticed the change in him and can trim his hooves in half the time it used to take as he was often difficult and wouldn’t give his feet willingly. Steve is patient and gentle, and the horses very much enjoy his presence and their healing sessions. It has already made a big difference to this horse’s health. (Midi, Periana area)

To contact Steve – Mobile 665235689, Tel 951209241 and email: stevenrowle @ outlook.com

….I have also attached a picture of my horse, Moreno that Steve has been working on.

Many thanks,

Midi

Recommendation- Doctor Laptop

He is a genuinely nice man and very competent in what he does.

I am so pleased I finally contacted him after several other people failed to fix my computer. His mobile is 675 993 069.
