What’s On

Tell them you saw it on DigameXtra!

The Perseids meteor shower: It should be clearly visible in the night sky over southern Spain this weekend. A shower of stars, known as the Perseids or the Tears of San Lorenzo, because 10 August is the Day of San Lorenzo. This summer, the lack of moonlight in the night-time sky means the shooting stars should be clearly visible. Source Story, Sur English

Diego the chimney sweep again! A very nice genuine man who I contacted by phone on 952515065 for advice on my very old wood burner. (The e-mail given on previous recommendations could not be delivered by postmaster? ) The elderly woman who answered took my phone number to which Diego promptly replied. Though he could not clean the chimney he gave me various options in detail, very positive comments which I agreed with.
