Homing 2 small cats….

Lady Cruise Companion Needed

I am looking for a lady companion to join our group on an 11 day Mediterranean

Cruise –  starting from Barcelona to Rome from May 6th to 17th 2017.

I shall cover all the costs.  I am a 63 years young male, travelling with

three other couples from Nerja. It will be a shared cabin but separate beds

and I would like to find my companion by 12th April.

Contact ianbloor@sky dot com with brief details of yourself and be available

to meet before the 12th April.



Little Abandoned Dog

I found this dear little girl on Saturday, abandoned and trembling in a doorway in Canillas de Aceituno.

This was very shortly before a massive bike race was due to start in the village.

I have taken her to the vet today and she has been treated for fleas, ticks and worms. Now those have been dealt with she is in good health although painfully skinny.

She is approximately two and a half months old and a podenco mix.

She is likely to remain a small dog – she weighs less than 4 kilos at present.

AAR will take her on their books if a foster owner can be found.

They would pick up all expenses. It would be even better if someone can offer a forever home.

Please contact me on 951 247 138 or 635 947 407 if you could offer a temporary or permanent home to this lovely little girl who I have called Scout.

Thanks for reading this. Debbie

DoctorLaptop’s 5th Anniversary Special
To celebrate these 5 years as DoctorLaptop-Nerja

my famous Clean and Tuneup Special is back, laptops €40

or towers/desktops for €50.

The ultimate maintenance service. Most jobs finished overnight.
-malware removal (adware/spyware/virus/trojan/worm/hijackers/trackers/rootkits) using  5 different pro level tools; I was trained by Nokia to do manual scan analysis instead of relying on inaccurate automated tools to do that task, a skill few technicians bother to learn anymore!
-update all programs/drivers and Windows
-clean out all old history records, log files and memory dumps
-defrag memory and registry
-optimize settings for fast performance
-delete old infected restore points
-clean fan and cooling channel
-test for and repair bad sectors on hard disk
-run Windows System Integrity Scan and Repair function
-test RAM for diminished capacity
-install browser add-ons for safe web surfing and popup advert blocking
Basically, I treat it as if I were going to be using it as my primary computer

and I demand speed.

No Windows XP or Vista systems, these are both officially obsolete.

Heavily infected units, or those showing error messages need a repair,

not this maintenance servicing.

This offer ends 30 Apr17
For appts call Naythan on 675 993 069 (no calls before 11am, no appts by email). For more info email me: doctorlaptop @ protonmail.com



Services- Spanish Language Practice

Are you learning Spanish or English and want the opportunity to practice?

Come to a new group in Paco’s Bar, Plaza Constitution, Torrox Pueblo, every Wednesday 5 – 7pm starting Wednesday 5th April.

Come and listen – come and talk in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere and practice your Spanish or English.

All levels welcome.

Bienvenidos! Welcome!

More information from Linda 627285632 or just come along.



Services Available Housework etc
I am looking for any type of housework, cleaning, ironing – anything considered around the Competa area although further a  field could be possible.
My name is Virginia and live in Competa, and would expect an hourly fee of 10 Euro

If anyone would be interested please contact me on 633750839
I am a reliable and trustworthy person.



Service needed Car Bodywork

My car has just failed its ITV, partly because of a damaged rear bumper (can’t attach a photo, the laptop is currently ‘updating’)!

The main dealer has quoted me just under €1,000 to replace it, but I’m sure it could be repaired using some temporary combination of welding, soldering and rivets – although it is close to the fuel tank.

Does anyone know of a body shop which could do a cheaper repair?
The main dealers also fitted a new front headlight, and the car has also failed because it wasn’t focused.

You can guess I’m not pleased with them, but if you want to know who it was in Vélez-Málaga, you’ll have to email me.
Thanks in advance,
vitruvianman @ outlook . es (removing spaces)



Recommendations- Wills

If anyone is thinking of making a Will we can highly recommend the Notary by the Repsol garage at El Morche.

They ask you to complete a very simple form which we did at home (took no more than 5 minutes so we could have easily done them there and then to save a journey).

We returned the forms yesterday and were given an appointment for 10 o’clock this morning to go back and sign the official documents.

The Notary speaks excellent English.

Total cost for 2 Wills just over 78 Euros!

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.
