At Chiki’s with U3A and Norma: Plans for this Fall. Hello dear friends of Chiki’s Bio Restaurant! We had liked to thank you all for your support throughout last spring. As you may remember I sent a similar note on DigameXtra a couple of months back. But now, I would like to ask you to register your interest on the two following events: 1) the Chiki’s Creative Circle *(CCC) will resume on Wed., Sept. 19th from 11am to 1pm. 2) On Wed. 8/26 we will be enjoying a Pies/Quiches Crust presentation; all without the traditional butter/flour combination, hence healthier. Our máximum is 10 participants (first 10 to register). The tuition is 20€ which will include lunch following the récipes demonstration. These activities will be enjoying the collaboration of Chiki and U3A (the University of the Third Age: http://www.u3aaxarquia.com). Chiki’s exact Location: As you face the sea, Chiki is on the beach to the left of the bridge between Algarrobo and Mezquitilla. Chiki’s Webpage: www.chikibeachclub.com. All of Chiki’s management and members of U3A join me in wishing you a safe and fun ending to your summer.
*(CCC): A group of us meets to work on an individual/personal manual Project (sewing, embroidery, knitting, collage, writing, etc…). No fees; just join us for a couple of hours focussing on your Project and order a drink by the enchanting sea!! Please reply to norma2kk@aol.com before 9/10. Norma in Velez.

Recommendations Pool Pump Repair: A Big Thank You!
Many thanks to all those Digamites who responded to my request for help, too many to mention individually. Most of you told me to change the capacitor, and this indeed was the problem. I purchased an equivalent one at my local ferreteria for the grand price of 2.50 euros, a cheap repair indeed!
What a wonderful thing DigameXtra is! Hats off to Naythan who has made DigameXtra look so professional and much easier to read.
Once again thanks to all who responded.
