Help Needed with Chrome Problem  Could any experienced “Chrome browser” user please help with an irritating problem? It will not allow me to put websites onto the desktop. Thus: The correct procedure is to 1) open the website.2) open the chrome menu ( top right).3) select “More tools”. 4) select “Add to desktop”……simples?…Not for me!   When I do this, the website icon appears on the  desktop OK, but when I click on it, it simply opens my home page on the browser; not the web page.  If I try another option; ie dragging the web from the title bar to the desktop, it works perfectly, except that it only shows the generic “Chrome” icon, not the preferred official icon ( eg; the Amazon “A”).   Is there a Chrome user out there who can put me out of my misery?                                              Please email me :jon 108 at hotmail dot co dot uk ( no spaces )    Thankyou. John B

Casa Magel for Christmas & Other Celebrations  Wondering what to get that someone special for Christmas or just a break away anytime. Casa Magel’s special offer of 2 nights B&B with dinner for 2, sharing en suite double room make a superb present.   Book now for the New Year and Spring is just around the corner!!!    Nice personalised gift voucher or card can be ordered.  Casa Magel lies on the edge of the typical Spanish town of Valle de Abdalajis. We are surrounded by beautiful countryside with views of the mountains, yet only a 15 minute walk into the town where there are many bars serving meals and tapas, you really get a feel of how the Spanish live.Valle De Abdalajis stems from the Roman period when it was known as Nescania, conquered by the Moorish leader Abdalajis. We have a lovely museum showing the town over the centuries. There are many places nearby to visit, The Wolf park, boasts the most species of Wolves living in the wild in Europe. Convento Magdalena, is a beautiful 12th Century Convent lovingly restored and now run has a 5* hotel. Antequera, a magnificent town that has the most churches in Spain …27… Overlooked by the famous Indian head mountain. The legend is told that a Moorish princess fell in love with a Christian soldier and they were forbidden to marry, so ran away together to the mountain, they were chased by her father’s army and so, rather than be separated, they jumped to their death. Locals tell some nights you can hear their cries.  Then there is El Torcal, the highest point in the area, strange rock formations which were formed millions of years ago when it was under water, cover the land, a sight to behold.    In the other direction you will find Caminito del Rey in El Chorro, a major tourist attraction, dare you do the walk!!!!  Also close by are the fantastic turquoise lakes of Ardales, where you can just sit and watch the world go by, or swim in the cool clear waters. Weather permitting!! Hire pedalos or eat in the many restaurants of the area.  2 nights, is it enough ? Maybe book an extra night for the special price of 50€ per room.   Autumn is here, what better than a nice break in a lovely room, lots to do and see, then back to a peaceful garden to sit by the Adalucian kitchen, G&T in hand and wait for a lovely home cooked meal.   Makes great birthday or anniversary treat. The food is good, the views amazing and the hosts are friendly!!!!  Contact us e-mail – casamagel@yahoo.com,                         0034 628519862 website www.casamagel.com


Recommendation-Gardener     I met with Samuel Perez this morning to discuss some strimming  and tidying of the garden …Before I knew it, he had his tools out and was working away on the strimming and later finished the rest. He’s very quick and very thorough and I have no hesitation in recommended him for cleaning up your untidy garden    He speaks a little English so we got by with that and my bad Spanglish English: phillymc@fastmail.fm Spanish:samucanillas@hotmail.es


Recommendation for Handyman   I can highly recommend Andy by name Handy by nature.  He arrived promptly by time arranged, did an exceptional job and left the place clean and tidy. WB.
