Easy Way to Shrink Pics: Photo submissions have a 1Mb size limit, no exceptions. Larger pics will not display in some reader’s emails and may cover other submissions, I certainly can’t allow that! Since we don’t want to exclude any readers from seeing content, submitters must follow this rule. You can easily shrink pics for free at this site. Just visit the website, browse to pic (step 1), then jump to step 4 and choose “Max file size” as 1000 Kilobytes, click resize button, then click “download to disk” to save the smaller pic to your computer. Try it, it’s simple! http://picresize.com/

TuneIn Prob fixed: Although I have answered each person who suggested solutions for my problem with TuneIn radio, I would like to say how wonderful DigameXtra is, thanks to Naythan. Everything working well again. Mary. marjofran@gmail.com Puente Don Manuel

Escape Room Torrenigma: If you like puzzles and riddles, this could be for you. Torre del Mar now has an Escape Room venue in Calle Isidoro Rivas. Forget virtual reality, this is the real thing with secret compartments and cryptic messages hidden in some very ingenious places. My wife and I went with our grand daughter and her boyfriend, albeit Initially a bit reluctantly. We were welcomed and given a twenty minute briefing by Juan who speaks excellent English. Then into the Room. It is not easy and we failed, apparently by five minutes, to escape within the allotted hour. Great fun, thoroughly recommended. Colin, Torre, colespania@gmail.com
