 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

What’s on- Quartet con Fuoco (Classical Music)

Location: Hotel Paraíso del Mar.

Price: 15’00 €.

Ticket sales: calle Pintada, 8 – 1º Izq,.Nerja. For telephone reservations, call 690073871.

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, “From my life” 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.

Nicolae Ciocan (Violin), Raúl Baixauli (Violin), Răzvan Cociodar (Viola), Carlos González (Cello), Bedrich Smetana: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_L1lPraMNUk, Edvard Grieg: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZZkxLY9uqc, Jorge López
