Stolen Plants in Torrox

Has anyone seen the pink diplademia  in this photo appear overnight in a neighbour’s garden? It disappeared on Sunday night. Over the 9 years I have been here numerous plants and ceramic pots have been stolen from the front of my house. I now only put plastic pots out but that didn’t save this plant which was just establishing itself nicely. We try to make this village attractive but it’s disheartening to lose plants and some are not cheap. Be warned. I don’t imagine the local police will bother investigating but I will report it this time. Should you spot it please ring 675365147.


Spanish Driving Licence ……

I am seriously considering taking a Spanish driving test and wonder if any Digamites could offer some advice.
A. Do I need to know how to use the indicators ?
B. Do I need to be able to park between two white lines ?
C. Do I have to be able to negotiate a roundabout ?
D. Should I stop at a zebra crossing when someone is within 20 metres and assume they will need to cross. ? wanchaisailor9@gmail.com
E. When exiting the car, should I just abandon or park ?.
Answers please on an A4.
Thanks David, Caleta.

A point to note about ‘Blue Flag’ beaches.

The award is made for the condition of the beach only and I have to say that they make a good effort here.  However, this award does not dip a toe in the actual sea alongside the beach so is a bit of a cop out for the overall impression of a sea resort.   Don’t go in the water until you have tried it !  Chris Barrett


Polluted Sea – a Suggestion …..

Dear Jane, I read this message and saw the video, Afterwards I was shocked

I thought it may help to try and make a change thru more awareness.

Normally you only post info on a two week bases BUT in this case maybe we could start a signature list with all Nationalities that live here and create more awareness of the problem.

It would be such a small thing to have divers check the pipelines and video the holes and have the town halls get them repaired. I’m confident that NO mayor of a beach town wants to lose one of there main tourist attraction ” BEACH ” with dirty and disgusting water. I will gladly help and go to the officials and try to convince them to pay the divers and repair the holes to make our beaches clean/er etc..

Hopefully, if we show them in what state the water is in and how easily it can be improved, they will organize repair.

Then it should be checked on a yearly basis to insure that the pipelines are in tact.  I”m quite confident that they don’t want negative publicity and  that this should be a big issue and become public knowledge. It’s not ” only” about our kids/grand kids but also about the Ecosystem.

Do you have any ideas what else we could do?

Looking forward to your input.

Warm Greetings, Patricia

Standardizing Ads for “Treatments” Advertised in DigameXtra

As of today, I will accept Ads for health professionals, therapies, medical treatments etc.etc. ONLY if the person concerned can provide a Licence Number to operate here in Spain in the text of the ad.

For Example:
“Services Offered, Physiotherapist, Tom Jones, lic. #12345, reg. with Madrid Board of Certified Physiotherapists”

This is perfect!

If a full name and license number is provided then readers can verify with the licence issuer the current qualifications of the submitter and see if they have received any disciplinary actions.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Jane, Editor
