Axarquia Animal Rescue on FB are on the move !!!!!!

We’ve recently become aware of a potential security issue with our existing public FB group. We’ve tried everything we can to mitigate against it but the only option left to us is to set up a brand new FB public group and move everyone across, we just can’t risk the security and integrity of the site. We need you to move across with us so please click on the link below to join our new public group. Our current FB Group will close on 18 September and we don’t want to lose you so please, please, move across with us to our new group.https://www.facebook.com/groups/128470341127231/


Flight delays and compensation

I read Nigel B’s post with great interest having tried to claim compensation from Monarch after a 18 hour delay. The flight attendants handed out all the necessary claim forms and told us we would receive compensation. Nothing happened. Not even an acknowledgement they had received the paperwork. After a year, I sent the whole caboodle in again. Nothing happened. As there is no phone number I am unable to pursue this by phone, and clearly, the email isn’t working. If Nigel B wouldn’t mind dropping me an email at rachael1210 at gmail dot com, I would love to find out how he managed to sort it out.   Many thanks, Rachael


DoctorLaptop’s Tips #63 & Sept. Special

-Many Windows 10 users are having problems with their computers freezing up since the Creator’s Update was released recently. If this happens to you try this before seeking help. Connect your comp to your router with an Ethernet cable instead of using WiFi. Then restart the comp 3 or 4 times, paying attention to any pop-up instructions and doing what they tell you to do. It usually sorts out a hung-up update.-Many Win 7 and Vista computers that should never have been updated to Win 10 are now having crashes after Win 10 is installed. It can take 6mo or more before problems become evident. You did check the manufacturers website to confirm your model was Win 10 capable before allowing the update to proceed, didn’t you? The Microsoft Win 10 Upgrade Advisor cannot be trusted! You MUST check the mfg website for correct info! -Protonmail.com free email users now have a free VPN available. Open Protonmail, go to Settings, then click VPN and proceed with installing it.-SPECIAL: Today’s new large hard drives are under much more stress than the older smaller ones since the tracking arm must do more work to cover the greater disk area. Extend the life of your hard drive by getting it reconditioned. Does not remove any data, recovers bad sectors and re-energizes the magnetic surface of the disk. All banks and mission critical computer systems do this annually. Till the end of Sept I will do this job for €50, usually €70.Phone 675 993 069(no calls before 11am) or email

Services Needed-Mobile Phone Signal Booster

We have decent mobile phone reception at the front of our campo house, but a very poor signal inside the house, or behind it.  I know that there are boosters that can improve the signal, working like a local wifi, but for mobile phone voice calls.  I would be interested to hear from anyone who used such a booster, and from anyone who can recommend a person/company that installs them.
