Is there anyone that knows how to change a charging port connector from a amazon fire tablet would probably need a soldering iron to put it in, i will be ordering a new one from amazon soon so it isn’t an emergency to do it quite yet. i live near the Puente don manuel area which is near vinuela. thanks shirley. shirley romero 21 at hotmail dot com

Classes Offered: Coping with Emergencies in Spain. Retired or not English and other extrañjeros in Spain face many challenges as well as gaining great benefits. Our lifestyle changes, our diet changes, we face issues of health care and home safety that are different to the UK, and we are unfamiliar with both the language and the way things are organised. Living up a mountain or in the campo we don’t think how long it would take for an ambulance or fire engine to reach us – or how to cope until it did.
Patrons Rescue International is offering a two day course that will cover how to call for an ambulance and how to provide first aid and CPR certification should it ever be necessary. We will discuss how to access local health care services. The course will look at fire safety in the home, home evacuation plans, how to call the fire service and how to use fire extinguishers. We will look at the action to take at a road accident and how to call the police (and which police to call) as well as protecting your home from theft.  We will talk about what constitutes a healthy diet, and how using herbs and spices have an effect on well being. We will cover safe manual handling and how to exercise without doing harm.
By the end of the two days you will feel much better prepared to get the maximum pleasure out of the fantastic amenities that this country has to offer throughout a long and active retirement and have the confidence to cope with the problems that you may face.
The next course is Mon & Tues 22nd & 23rd October at Restaurante Venta la Parra, Alcaucin (Paraje Cruz Del Gitano, 3, 29711 Alcaucín, Málaga)
Web site: www.ventalaparra.es Phone: 697 98 25 61
The cost of the course is €65 per person includes tea, coffee and lunch on both days.
