Frigiliana’s 3 Cultures Festival is this weekend: Program listing at Home Page

Casa Magel B&B, October & November special: Complimentary bubbly on arrival. 2 nights B&B choice of continental or English breakfast. 1 night 3-course meal with wine for 2 sharing a double room. 100€. Maybe possible to get tickets for Caminito Del Rey El Chorro if you book early. This is a good time to visit the wolf park 15 mins away as the wolves are more visible as the weather cools and they do full moon howling at night. Pop into Convento Magdalena next door and soak up the peaceful atmosphere with a nice glass of wine. Many nice walks all around, our little Roman town is a 15-minute walk away, with a very nice museum, good tapas bars.
So much to do and see and then relax by the pool while our chef cooks you a delicious meal. We have a limited honesty bar or bring your own drinks. Full kitchen facilities for guest use. Terrace & BBQ. Pretty Gardens, lovely pool, yummy food, great hosts, fantastic views. Who could ask for anything more for 100€ for 2?

DoctorLaptop 1-Week Special, My famous computer “Clean & Tuneup” service only €40 (reg €50): If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance, an annual professional servicing is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? Just like with your car, a inexpensive, regular servicing will prevent the expensive repairs a neglected unit will eventually incur. I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, update Windows+all drivers+programs, install free ransomware protection, and optimize your settings for fastest overall performance. Then I clean the fan, cooling channel, screen and keyboard of all the nasties they collect. Job usually completed overnight. For Windows & Macs. Until Sep. 01 you can get 20% off, only €40! Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.
Contact: doctorlaptop @ protonmail.com or call 675 993 069 (no calls before 11am, missed calls returned asap). All work by appointment only.
Computer repairs, lessons, websites/blogs/forums/SEO, Social Media promotion & marketing, business computer maintenance service.
Windows, Apple/Mac, Linux, Android. Sorry, no glass or iPad battery replacements.
