Help with iTunes Please

Is there a Knowlegeable Digamite out there who knows more than a thing or two about “iTunes”?

I’m having a few irritations regarding “Adding files to the library”

Have been doing it for years but a couple of odd probs have cropped up recently.

Have checked the net but advice on forums etc is a bit hit and miss.( not to mention jargon from the planet “Zog”)

I can be contacted on: jon 108 @ hotmail.co. uk

Any tips appreciated.

Thankyou all.

John B



Final Post on Poo……

Why is it that Michael thinks that a lot, repeat lot- of dog owners are irresponsible about picking dog poo up.

My wife and I walk the river bank at Torrox Costa every Sunday and every dog owner we see appears to use doggy bags.

There are no bins along this area but we wait until we get to a bin to dispose of said doggy bag and -not seeing any bags laying around – would assume that most people do the same, why tar everyone with the same brush ?
Thanks Ian.

(Final Poo-related post this time round  – thank you – Editor)


41 Club Nerja AGM

At the AGM of 41 Club Nerja Jim Skinner from England handed over the Chairmans jewel to Martin Urban from Austria.

Jim was thanked for his fun packed year which resulted in nine new members.  Martin told us of his plans for the next twelve months which includes a boat trip, BBQ,  Ladies Night and many other events.

He plans to involve our ladies more than usual which went down very well with the members.

His year plan can be seen on our website.

41 Club Nerja now has 45 members from nine different countries and is truly an International Club.

We meet twice every month with a meeting on the first Thursday of the month at lunch time with our ladies called ‘Munch Bunch’ and on the third Thursday of the month we have our ‘normal’ meeting where the many events listed above will happen.

Most of our members are only in Spain for short stays during the year so please if you are an Ex Round Tabler visiting Nerja or nearby now and then contact us and join in the fun.

Services Needed- Swimming Pool Repair 

Our pool needs some mosaic tiles replacing at the bottom.

Services  – English Food Shop – Granose Lincs Sausage ?

Angela posted a few days ago about a British supermarket in Nerja opposite the police station. Could anyone if they go in there please look and see if they stock Granose Lincolnshire sausage mix? It’s a packet mix so not in a chill cabinet.

I would be really grateful as it’s an hour’s journey for me on spec otherwise. And if the shop has a phone number, that would be useful too.

Please let me know on wendy.sedella @ hotmail.com or phone 951069997

Thanks a lot.
