Long term Rental Property required: We are a family of four from Liverpool who are planning to relocate to the Axarquia/Malaga region in the next few months. We are coming over next week to discuss some job opportunities and are looking for a property to rent long term. You might remember our previous post a few months ago but things have moved on a bit and we are now clearer in what we are looking for. Ideally we would like a 3 bedroom house with some outside space / garden (for kids to run around) in or within walking distance to a village with some amenities and a primary school. If there was a holiday let attached that would be perfect. We would be happy to do some decorating if required. We would like to rent for at least 6-12 months. Thank you. Claudia

Wanted: Bookcases. APA Nerja Dog and Cat Rescue are looking for a couple of tall bookcases for our book room in our new shop on Calle Chaparil, they need to have at least six book size shelves, please get it touch if you have such a thing, and come in and peruse our books if you need one! Contact: Sue in Torrox, Gipsyrosesemail@ aol. Com


   RIP: Koko, gorilla famed for using sign language and crying over pet kitten, dead at 46. Her remarkable ability to do sign language landed her on the cover of National Geographic twice — in 1978, in a photo she took of herself in a mirror, and again in 1985, with an image of her mourning the death of one of her pet kittens. In 2012, she stunned scientists by playing wind instruments, including the recorder, harmonica and party-favor whistles — an ability that showed primates can learn to control their breathing, NPR reported. Controlled breathing was believed to be beyond their ability. Full article: https://nypost.com/2018/06/21/koko-gorilla-famed-for-using-sign-language-and-crying-over-pet-kitten-dead-at-46/

AAR appeal: for a foster carer or forever home for Jessie
