AAR appeal for Kennel Angels

Some of our AAR dogs do not have foster carers and have to live in kennels. Our Kennel Angels do a wonderful job of helping to prepare these dogs for adoption.

They help to socialise them by playing with them, walking them and teaching them basic commands.

If you could spare a few hours a week to do this invaluable work, please contact us on

axarquia-rescue@hotmail.com and

for more info on the role of Kennel Angels, go to http://www.axarquiaanimalrescue.com/angel.php.

Recommendation Brilliant Job Dr Laptop

May I say a huge thank you to Naythan for fixing all the problems I had on my laptop, so much junk kept appearing and I couldn’t get rid of it even after buying so called programmes to rid me of it.  After tearing my hair out for months something had to give so I took it to Naythan who has cleaned the whole system and put protection on against receiving all this rubbish.  Wonderful job Naythan, thank you.  Such a worthwhile trip to Nerja.

Got problems – then contact him – details at bottom of every Digamextra.

Best wishes Mave



Recommendation Needed –Tree Feller

Needed urgently.

Could anyone please recommend a licenced Tree Feller or a gardening company that cover the same thing, preferably Spanish. We have pine trees in our garden with Processionary Caterpillars and need the trees removed quite urgently. Please send replies to minstrel1963  @  hotmail.com. Thank you everyone.


Recommendation- Sorting out Lack of Phone Signal…….

G at barrancodeplanos was wondering what to do about lack of mobile phone signal.  We had exactly the same some time ago (it’s still poor) and tried to tackle it with an external mobile antenna and “fixed high-power mobile”, but with limited success.

As you have a good broadband service, all you need to do is get hold of a VoIP Adaptor. This is a small box (about the size of a pack of cards) which plugs into your broadband cable, and into which you can plug any standard landline-type phone (including DECT cordless ones, so you can wander round the house).

The advantage of a VoIP (voice over internet protocol) adaptor is that it operates independent of your computer, or anything else you connect to your incoming broadband.

You will need to contract for VoIP Telephone services, which you can either do on the recommendation of your ISP provider, or you can choose your own company for phone services and billing.

We have used Adam Telefonia (http://adam.es/services/communications/vozip) for some years.  They provide a highly professional and reliable service. There is a small monthly charge (about €9) and calls are dirt cheap, even to overseas mobiles.  You will be given a large choice of phone numbers, or can ‘migrate’ one with you.  The phone account/billing is online, and you can top up online as well.  People calling you will be billed as if they are calling a landline number.   Chris, Sayalonga

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
