Speed Trap

As a Spanish protest group was formed to deal with the municipalities

playing fast and loose with the speed limit signs on the Autovia,

I though I would pass on the last little glitch pointed out to me the other day.  Heading east towards Nerja, around km 240 mark, long right hand tunnel.

Every other tunnel is usually 80 kph entering and 120 exiting.

This one has diagonal black lines, “resume speed” but- for various reasons- the speed is 80.

By the time you reach the speed camera you have already speeded  up

and it is difficult to get down to the required 80

We all assume resume speed means 120.

If this saves one person a fine that’s great

Services Available – Physiotherapist

Qualified, fully registered, professional and experienced Physiotherapist

Sanne has more than 15 years of experience in the private sector as well as the NHS in the UK and has worked for more than 8 years in Spain in both Spanish and ex-pat clinics.

She is extremely experienced in all musculo-skeletal conditions and injuries, such as low back pain, neck pain, sciatica, road traffic accidents, arthritis, ligament tears, shoulder impingements, tendinitis, sprains, strains, fractures, muscle imbalances etc. as well as post-operative rehabilitation after all orthopaedic operations, such as arthroscopies, joint replacements, corrective orthopaedic surgery and spinal surgery. Furthermore she treats patients with neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and strokes (CVA’s).

Sanne uses manual therapy, joint mobilisations, electrotherapy, exercise therapy, postural and ergonomic assessments, muscle energy techniques, kinesio taping and thermal therapy as her main treatment methods following a thorough assessment of the patient.

Additionally she has recently specialised in the treatment of pelvic floor disorders because clinical experience showed that many people attending with other issues (women and men alike) suffered with associated pelvic problems. She is experienced in obstetric physiotherapy (antenatal and postnatally), as well as treatments for vaginismus, dyspareunia, over-active bladder, stress incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and urinary issues associated with prostate cancer.

Recommendation-House & Pet Sitters

We would like to highly recommend Eddie & Edel –  House & Pet sitters.
They recently moved into our home to look after our little dog, while we returned to the UK.

They were great  with him, and we could see he was happy on our return.

Our home was well looked after too, cleaned  and even shiny windows when we arrived home.
We were so delighted, we have booked them again in May for our dog,  and during the summer to just house sit while we take our long summer holiday.
A delightful couple, who live locally to Nerja/Torrox but willing to travel and care for your home.
Contact them on.     edelb222 @ gmail.com  (remove the spaces) or phone 604384346.

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.
