Services Offered/Wanted

Any Professional Hula Dancers in the Axarquia? I am a professional singer/guitarist who lived and made music for 30 years in Hawaii, working often with hula dancers and troupes. Since then, I have continued accompanying hula dancers in other lands. I live part of each year in Torrox Costa, and would like to find a professional hula dancer with whom I could perform locally.

Dog Care: We can highly recommend Silvia´s doggie day care in El Morche. We read her ad on digame, contacted her and our dog now happily goes to Silvia who gives her lots of walks and attention. Richard & Sandra Harrison La Herradura richard@thewandp.co.uk

The AlertCops app: There is a very useful app which you can use to contact the Policía Nacional or the Guardia Civil called AlertCops. However upgrades in the operating system for the iPhone in particular has meant that they have had to bring out an upgrade to the app and people who have downloaded it in the past may find it no longer works if they come to use it. This is obviously not a good idea if you are in an emergency situation. I would recommend everybody download the latest version as soon as possible.
