Missing Dog – Please Look out for Him

Please look out for this little white dog with a blue collar. His hair is a bit shorter than in the photo. He ran off after his lead broke around the poligono behind Torrox Costa. He has been seen a number of times there and around Amberes. If you see him or catch him ( he is pretty nervous) please call Sue 629591173 or Gill 633405560

Thank you

 

Dog Found in Caleta

This very friendly little dog was found in Caleta de Velez yesterday.

He is approx 15kg, so on the small side of medium size, and has no chip or collar. However, he is so comfortable around people and seems to be owned so we are hopeful that an owner might be looking for him.

If you recognise him or know who he belongs to or, if you would like to foster him until either his owner or a new owner is found, please contact Seacrest kennels on (+34) 952 521 426. Nerja. CAS Ref 061

 

Beautiful Dog Looking for a Home

This is Hugo, a 6mth old Sharpei Labrador cross. He has a great temperament, is very friendly and gets on well with cats and other dogs.

Currently he is in kennels and we would really like to get him a permanent home. He is castrated and vaccinated.  If you are interested in meeting him, please call Gill on 633405560 or email ogillyarmstead @ gmail.com (no spaces)

 Rolling Thunder…

Yesterday, Monday the 28th we had some very welcome rain. I also experienced for the very first time, rolling thunder…. I had heard of it but never actually heard it. In Vinuela, the faint thunder started some way from the west, Malaga area. Faint flashes of lightning could be seen in the thick billowing clouds, the thunder continued to get louder in a constant rolling effect, a flash and a great crack of sound as it passed overhead towards Zaffarraya.

All the cats disappeared except one that had obviously heard it all before and just wanted a belly tickle! Small birds were racing around the trees, making a lot of noise. I had noticed about a dozen big birds way up high, must have been at least 500ft above the area of Arkwrights shop, completely unperturbed, surfing the air currents, slowly this way and that.

I captured this on a iPhone, the sound and picture quality is not great but the general shape of the birds can bee seen, it’s about 2.5 minutes long. I’ll send it as an email attachment to anyone interested and can maybe identify these pajaros impresionantes,

Cheers, Keith, wotsapninatgmaildotcom

 

Four Kittens Need Homes

click to enlarge

I’ve got four kittens that are ready to find their forever homes. All fluffy and bouncy! Two of them are identical, both in looks and behaviour. These two are males, and are very playful and cuddly. Like to lay down next to you, to get cuddles and sleep
One is white and speckled, also a male! He likes to play hard-to-get, but is very playful if you use the time on his ‘hard-to-get-‘ playing. The last one, black and white, is a female. She’s cautious, and may need some time with you before she gets to the point where she’s cuddly. But if you do, you’ll have a very cuddly girl

Recommendation-Airport Taxi Services

I saw a recent post in Digamextra with a horror story of smoke-filled and unreliable taxis, etc.

For three years now we have been using PCB Tours:

Tel: +34 654 35 88 00
http://www.pcbtours.eu/

Their cars are always spotless, smoke-free, punctual and the owner, Paul, prides himself on providing a high quality service. All drivers are English speakers.

Two days ago we arrived at Malaga an hour late, handicapped wife parked on runway outside empty airplane (no room on the handicap transfer bus), cheated by car-hire (as usual) and needed to get home. A simple call to Paul and he had one of his drivers meet us at the airport within 1/2 hour and took us all the way home, in El-campo (where taxi drivers usually refuse to go).

100% recommendation for Paul and his taxi / transfer service. They ARE the best.

What’s On Real Flemish barbecue in Torrox-Costa

Saturday 2 September

Dear lovers of good food,
It was in 2001 when I was invited to a ¨real Flemish barbecue¨ in a small village west of Brussels for the first time. I was sure that they could not beat the Americans or the Argentinians. However, I was more than surprised and since then convinced that the Belgian people like the Americans and Argentinians know how to prepare meat on a fire!

And imagine all this meat combined with their famous Belgian beers like Leffe, Affligem, Kriek…
On Saturday 2 September you will have the chance to participate in a real Flemish barbecue at Happy Days in Torrox-Costa.

All you can eat at a price of 16 Euros per person. A variety of meats, fish, salads and potatoes.

If interested please do go along the restaurant and put your name on the list. They are open from 4pm until at least 11pm.
Location: corner of Avenida de Europa and paseo marítimo (Bloque 82 Centro Internacional)
Contact phone number for enquiries: 645 439 914
Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Restaurant-Happy-Days-313649202397941/
A real cosy corner where people of all nationalities have been meeting up since they started last July!

Archery & Learning to Shoot ?

When I was a teenager I had the opportunity to do archery, but have not tried it in many years. I also have always wanted to learn to shoot, but my partner had VERY strong views on the subject!

Now divorced and retired, I have the time to tick these two off the bucket list, but before I make a major investment in the sports I would like to try them and see if they really are for me.
Can any Digamite point me in the right direction so I can try them out please?
Many thanks,Vic.   68414193      victor.calland @gmail.com (no spaces)

 
Kittens House Hunting …….

Long Term Car Rental Needed-

My husband and I will be in Spain for 3 months each winter and we’d like to explore the option of renting someone’s car during that time. We would like a small, reliable car that is fully insured. Perhaps you have a second car that you don’t use very often and this could help to defray the cost of your insurance. Perhaps you can make do during December-February without a car, or you plan to be away during that time and would appreciate the income.

We could pay 600EU for the 3 months each years. We have an excellent driving record. We’re 66 years old and from the U.S. We have a home in La Herradura.

If this is something you’d like to explore, please contact me at michellerabin at gmail

The Twelfth Stage of the Cycle Race “La Vuelta” ….

(Thanks to John Dunford)

They will be passing from Motril to Antequera on Thursday 31st August, passing along the coast of The Axarquia. The Local Police in Nerja are reporting that on that day the N-340 coast road will be closed in the municipality from 13.00 until approximately 15.00. The times in other municipalities may vary depending on where you are on the route. Your local Town Hall should be able to give you the details.

The full details of the stage route can be found on this link (available in Spanish, English and French)

http://www.lavuelta.com/la-vuelta/2017/us/stage-12.html

 

Thank you !

Although I have replied to everyone individually, I just wanted to say thanks for the huge response to my enquiry on Saturday for recommendations and suggestions.  A big ‘bouquet’ also to Jane for producing Digamextra every day!  Barbara W

 

Sleepless in Axarquia ??

Does someone know what the Spanish law says about the night rest?

I don’t know but I guess and hope that, also here, the sleep and night rest is protected by the law. I learned that the authorization for fiesta, feria and so on is given by the Town Hall. Are they allowed to issue authorizations for “parties” that last till 5 o’clock in the morning? OR!! At what time can I call the Guardia Civil, so that these authorities stop the circus?

Thank you for publishing my question officially; I guess everybody should know their rights.

Saludos cordiales

Foreign Plated Cars in Spain

There are still lots of questions being raised about importing foreign cars to Spain.

Would the person by the name of keith watsapnin @gmail.com please be so kind as to provide the link for where we can get the information or name of the site where he got it.

There has to be some kind of rule to prevent people holidaying in Spain for short spells from getting their car impounded and fined huge sums of money.

Lost Cat ? Sad News

Has anyone  lost a large black and grey cat?   Sadly, we found one dead in our garden on Saturday.  We reckon it had  been dead for at least 48 hours possibly a road traffic victim.  We have tried to find out locally if anyone knows about it but nobody seems to recognize the description. It was obviously well cared for and not a “Moggie” so if you have lost a cat with that unusual colouring, it is sadly no more.  Very sad.
Marjory

 

Thank you All

Thank you to all Digamites who responded to my recent plea regarding passports.

Lovely Dog Rescued – Needs Home

I picked up a 4 month old Mastin pup on my track. She is a sweet, gentle girl who would thrive in a family with youngsters. I am unable to offer her a home as my old lady doesn’t appreciate sharing her space.

Also, as I’m an old lady, I wouldn’t be able for a dog who will be 10 kilos heavier than me when fully grown! Is there anyone out there who is used to big dogs who could offer Darcy a loving home? She would repay you in spades.

Passport Info on Line

As most people writing to Digame are using a computer to do so if they look at ‘Overseas British Passport Renewals’ they will find all information from UK government plus the forms to download.

Number plate registration

Further to the number plate problem, we’ve noticed that so far, the problem seems to concern foreigners who have become Spanish residents.

We became official French residents several years ago, have a left-hand drive car with French plates, but now as retirees, spend half our time driving back and forth between France and Spain. As somebody pointed out the other day, it would seem stupid to get Spanish plates whereas, as we don’t live here all year round.

Does anybody know what the Spanish law says about non-residents?

Please write to puchkauzon@gmail.com or call Paul on 634351754.

Thanks in advance. Paul

Quartet con Fuoco (Classical Music)

The Quartet is comprised of musicians from the Philharmonic Orchestra of Malaga. In the first part of their program they will interpret Quartet No. 1, in E minor, “De mi vida” by Bedřich Smetana, one of his most heartfelt and original scores, written in 1876. This is a semi-biographical work that sketches moments of his life. We’d like to highlight the viola solo at the beginning of the first movement of the “Allegro vivo appassionato”.

In the second part they will interpret the String Quartet nº 1, in G minor, op. 27 by Edvard Grieg. A work of undeniable beauty. Its premiere took place in Cologne between 1877/1878.

Think of CUDECA – Win-Win option

Recently I saw an advert for a settee for sale that the owners needed to get rid of within 24 hrs. I also see items re listed, and without being rude – items that are a little dated and may be hard to sell on Digamextra.
Cudeca in Torre Del Mar are very grateful for furniture donations and they sell from their store very well. They can also arrange collection.
Maybe readers could consider Cudeca as an option when disposing of unwanted furniture and household goods – get rid of the unwanted item and help a very worthwhile cause in one go.

Beware pickpockets in Nerja!
We were walking along that very busy street in Nerja (parallel with the sea) with lots of restaurants, pulling two small suitcases.

I noticed that two people seemed to be trying to get past my partner, they were very close, and I told him they were trying to pass.

When he looked around they both stopped and started studying very closely a map one of them was carrying.

They were middle-aged, I thought they were Spanish.

A few minutes later he found his wallet, which had been in his back pocket

(OK never again) was gone.

Didn’t feel a thing, and his hand pulling suitcase was in front of pocket.
Can’t be sure it was them but seems most likely scenario.

So be careful!   CF.

 

Cat Urgently Needs a Home or Help  pic

I’m on holiday in Alqueria and i have a stray cat here with FIV. He’s so affectionate though, follows me everywhere sits on my lap, he’s eating properly. I was wondering if he could be rehomed or is maybe even a lost cat as he is so friendly? When i arrived he was so skinny and I’m worried he won’t survive once I’m gone. He isn’t the same as the other strays here, he just wants company.

Please Help Soon !

UK Registered Vehicles in Spain

Hope you don’t mind a further question on this but hopefully of general interest.
We are resident in the UK but travel down to southern Spain in our UK registered car and spend the winter 6 months there. Clearly it is not viable to re register the vehicle every 6 months dependent on location! Similar to the previous story the UK no longer issue tax discs. Can anyone advise whether this is also problematic?
Thanks Chris.   Send to Digamextra for publication.

What’s On Trip to Cadiz Province 15th September 2015 to visit the Roman Ruins

Included in the trip is a visit to Tarifa for lunch and then on to Manilva for a visit to a Brewery with tastings!

Baelo Claudia is an ancient Roman town situated on the Costa de la Luz, some 15km north of Tarifa, next to the town of Bolonia and the beautiful beach.   Its history lies in the trade routes serving Europe and North Africa – the town’s strategic position on the coast near the Straits of Gibraltar made it a crucial stopping-off point between the two continents. The ruins of Baelo Claudia, with its impressive temple, forum and basilica, and especially the large fish-salting factory, show how important the town was.

Deriving its wealth from the fishing industry, Baelo Claudia supplied the popular Roman delicacy garum (fish paste) to the whole Roman Empire. It was thriving at the time of Emperor Claudius (41-45 AD), who gave the town his name.

By the second century the town was in decline and was nearly destroyed by an earthquake. By the sixth century AD, Baelo Claudia was abandoned.
Baelo Claudia is stunningly located, with a backdrop of a golden sandy beach and the blue sea, and has an excellent visitor centre (see below).

The town follows the classic urban planning model of Rome, with streets running from east to west, and north to south; you can still walk along remaining parts of these.  Main attractions to be seen at the site include:

  • Basilica
  • Theatre
  • Thermal Baths
  • Temple of Isis
  • Aqueducts
  • Salting Factories (currently being restored)

Baelo Claudia Visitor Centre

This is housed in a simple, stunning building overlooking the sea; you pass through it before entering the archaeological site. It has interactive displays to explain about the city’s geographical location and context (important nearby cities included Cadiz and Malaga), in terms of shipping routes (both rivers and sea) and other communication within Hispania. You can also learn about society and daily life, including funerary rites and religion, and see the recreation of a Roman bedroom. Baelo Claudia’s economy was based on fishing, so the fish-salting factory – located in the lowest part of the town, right on the beach, for easy delivery of ingredients – was key to its success. With each audio-visual presentation, there are artefacts to complement, such as funerary urns and fishing equipment.

You can walk round the site following the suggested route, which takes you from the museum, past the east aqueduct and towards the salting vats on the seashore (still being restored) Then you can see the forum and the basilica (with many columns intact), followed by administrative buildings and shops. Further along, the path takes you to the market and baths, and finally, at the top of the town, the theatre – with its complex system of doors and passageways, for each section of audience, arranged into three areas by class – and temples.

UK Registered Vehicles in Spain…

In response to Keith’s warning Re UK registered cars.

We fell foul of the law earlier this year whilst staying for four winter months. We live permanently in France and had exported our UK car but not imported and re-registered it to France as we were due to change it for a French car this autumn. We had full French insurance.

Our car disappeared early one morning to the pound, and cutting a very long story short, we ended up paying over 4000€ to re-register it in Spain (Inc new headlights and ITV, fines and fees to the garage). We were told we couldn’t drive it in Spain unless we did, and though our car was entirely legal in France, the police would not accept it. They pulled it because it didn’t have a tax disc, something we do not have in France.

You wanted your horror story Keith, you got it!

Ruth

 

Recent request for veggy Quorn etc……

To the person who was asking where you can buy Quorn mince, you can get all the veggy products you want from Russells in Torrox Costa. Situated at the beginning of the avenida del Faro.

Hope this helps.  Angela R.

 

Services- Missing Spanish TV Channels
Has anyone else lost a bunch of Spanish terrestrial TV channels this week, including Gol and Disney Channel?

Does anyone know why and how to get them back if possible?

A retune of the telly does nothing. I’m in the campo near Torrox pueblo and use a normal aerial which usually has a good signal. All other channels are there as usual.

Services – Water Treatment – Reviews

(No More Items on this Subject for a Month please)

(1)

We live in Torrox campo & have had one of these filters for a number of years.  The water produced is good & we drink a lot of it.  The downside is that the water that goes in is divided by the process & a lot of it is discarded. The instructions indicate that the waste water be directed into the sink waste pipe & wasted, therefore increased water costs.  We direct ours into a water butt outside & use it on the garden.  No waste that way.  Another downside is that if you have a pump powered water system the pump will keep switching on & off as the tank fills & you draw off water .  This causes increased electricity costs & wear to the pump.  This can be mitigated if you have a handy switch for the pump & turn it off, during the night for instance.  We would not be without our filter but there can be hidden costs.

val blick @ hotmail.com

I wasn’t going to comment on this as I am far from an expert, but as no one else has mentioned the downsides, here goes.

We live on an urbanisation where water is stored in depositos before being distributed, as a result when we had the water lab tested because we seemed to get frequent tummy problems we found that we had no chlorine in the system and bacteria levels were higher than they should be.  We drank bottled water, and still do, but you are using tap water for so many things, washing salads & fruit, cleaning teeth.

We looked into various form of filtration and sterilization and the recommendation we got was  that you can’t beat chlorine.  We have a particulate filter where the water enters the property, then a deposito and a system that injects chlorine as it fills, we test the water every so often and adjust the injection rate to take account of changes that affect it like temperature.  Since we have done this we have found that our health has improved.

What I understand is a reverse osmosis system is great to fit under the kitchen sink for pure drinking water.  I don’t think it is the case that such water is not safe to drink, simply that it filters out everything,  beneficial minerals along with the impurities, so long term, if that was the only water you drank, you may be low on some of these.  As it, and its associated filters, remove all chlorine you should not fit it at the point of entry, just at the point of use.  If you fit it at the point of entry you have untreated water in your pipes and bacteria will just regrow, especially if, like us, you have a part of the house that is not regularly used.

The other issue with reverse osmosis is that the system uses a lot of water.  Systems vary but you will waste somewhere between one and four times the amount of water produced.

So, to summarise, if you want a system to give you chlorine free, pure water at your kitchen sink reverse osmosis is great, if somewhat wasteful, but if you need to disinfect your entire supply you should consider chlorination.  You could, of course, use both.

In reply to Bob A who thought that a simple question would bring forth a simple answer, sorry but it don’t work that way ; starters Bob makes no mention of what water quality he presently has other than“ not treated” so step one obtain a full chemical and bacterial analysis of the water supply – if you don’t know what’s in it you don’t know what you want to / need to remove and also that the analysis will need to remain broadly constant throughout the year. Armed with this information take it to a professional (not a salesman ) the local area water supplier has such people who will have an MSc or PhD in this very deep subject and ask / pay for their advice. Just taking a wild stab in the dark, Bob A and family did not mention spending excessive time on the loo so I am guessing that their water supply is basically potable so another wild stab are we talking taste if so a full RO water treatment would be overkill also RO water is not recommended for drinking and being slightly acidic ( pH 5 or 6 neutral is 7 ) does not taste pleasant as all minerals have been removed. If we are talking taste an in line single point carbon type filter would do the trick and do so more cheaply than a RO unit and if there is a chance of coliform bacteria (E coli etc ) at some point you may also consider a single point Ultra Violet steriliser ; I say single point as it is unlikely that it would be necessary to treat the water you shower in or flush down the loo and I refer you to the opening paragraph as high levels of Legionella pneumophila would indicate otherwise. Also he might care to “Google” water treatments and read up on what organisations like WHO and other such independent bodies (not trade organisations et al) have to say on the subject.Best of luck on your stroll through this little minefield (caveat emptor applies !!! )    Haydn W.

For Sale- Manners Please…

Is it too much to expect a response to an e mail or a phone call when enquiring about something for sale or a services required ad? Can’t you just answer the phone and say ‘I’m sorry, it’s sold’ or e mail a ‘thank you for your enquiry’. Otherwise, how do we know how many times to call? What is wrong with people that they cannot just be well mannered and polite?

regards

Adam
