For Sale: A Change of Art.
Just got back from England (skies so grey it’s like living in a giant Tupperware box) to find my rented Art Studio up for sale. The mice have already been evicted. I’m next. 60-odd original paintings and prints need new homes. The alternative doesn’t bear thinking about.
So here’s what I’m going to do: This Saturday the 17th, the studio doors will be open for the last time, and anyone can go in, point to a work and name their own price. I won`t be haggling. There’s a couple of pieces of nicely renovated furniture in there as well, and the chance to sip a little something as you peruse. Email for more pics.
The studio is at La Molineta, just short of Frigiliana on the Nerja/Frigiliana road. There’ll be signage. The queue starts at 10.00am, sweepings-up around 5.00. Hope to see you there.

DoctorLaptop’s Internet News – Sick and Tired of Cookie Policy Popups on so many sites?: Many websites you visit now open with a GRPR warning message ( General Data Protection Regulation 88 pages of unintelligible legal jargon) covering most of the screen. You must agree to all kinds of data collecting, tracking and 3rd party cookies to proceed, or you can try to opt out. And even if you go thru the laborious process of changing the settings they offer to opt out, these popups typically return the next day as if you never opted out. I believe that do this intentionally to wear you down so you eventually agree to all the spying. They claim they need the info to ” provide you the best experience” but that’s disputable; in reality many sell it in a variety of ways to finance the free content they provide site visitors. Personally, if the site is packed with ads I don’t feel they should need to collect and sell my data. Other sites not wanting to deal with the added expense or annoyance just popup a message that the site is not available in the EU.  There are ways around this, but I am forbidden from including instructions here by the WordPress User Agreement. However, while a crackdown on sharing links is on the horizon for EU internet users,  for now I can still provide a link to an article in plain English that explains the situation and some tricks to minimize the hassle. GDPR article in The Guardian and this article explains the implications GDPR will have on your internet experience in the very near future, GRPR explained in Wired magazine.

Recommendation required: Can anyone in DigameXtraland recommend a trustworthy, honest skilled tiler/bathroom refitter in the Caleta de Velez area? A person who can also replace outside terrace tiles with new? Any information greatly appreciated. Please contact Angela, Caleta de Velez on alcasbarra@hotmail.co.uk

 

Recommendation – Meson Mudejar in Archez: My partner and I are keen to recommend eating at Meson Mudejar in Archez to anyone who might be seeking a lovely meal in a wonderful mountain village – especially those looking for vegetarian food. In particular, we loved the regular curry on a Friday night. This is excellent, really enjoyable and good value. There is a starter, desert and choice of three main courses – all good quality. We’re sure you will have a lovely evening (but no need to rush there for 7pm, as we did).  – Bill, Archez, mabilica@btinternet.com

Curry Night at Meson Mudejar (Calle Alamos 6, Archez):
It’s Curry Night again this Friday (and every Friday) at the area’s only plant-only (vegan) restaurant located in the quaint and authentic small white village of Archez, Meson Mudejar, only a couple of winding kilometres below Canillas de Albaida. Curry Night, starting at 19:00, offers a full three course meal for 15€. Plus local musicians adding additional spice to the night. It takes owners David and Kinga a day and a half to make the chickpea spicy curry alone. Here’s the plan: starter is onion fritter (Pakora). Main course, three curries to choose from—mushroom and peas in spicy coconut sauce, royal tofu and cashews or chickpea curry. Dessert: fudgy coconut balls. All sauces are hand designed, all plant-based, all very healthy. The ambience is magic. Imagine yourself entering a gypsy cave, a rustic and authentic Moroccan mountain village home, half restaurant, half bed and breakfast. While it seats 37, reservations are recommended as Curry Night’s popularity soars. Contact David or Kinga at 682 489 949 call or Whatsapp FB-Link

Agaus Narixa – Bill increases: I have been into the office to query the additional charges to the water bill. I was told that these ‘adjustments’ are retrospective price increases which will date back to 2013. They are adding one year at a time to each bill. So far we have paid 2015-17, so just 2 more years to go. I pointed out that we had only owned our house for one year and was told that you inherit the debt on the house. I hope that helps. Dawn – Nerja. towellfamily @ hotmail .com

Hotel near Gibraltar?: Hello, can anyone recommend a good, reasonably priced hotel near Gibraltar. Please contact Angie at alcasbarra@hotmail.co.uk

Damage to electrical equipment:
Over the last week or so we have experienced damage to a number of electrical items in our house. A compact cd player, digital alarm, phone charger and internet signal transformer have all stopped working for no apparent reason, and we are having problems with the electrical pump which provides pressure for water from our water deposit tank. Not all plugged-in items have been damaged: kettle, electric blanket, and other phone chargers are fine. The items stopped working at various times. Have any other Digame readers experienced this, and/or does anybody have an explanation? badgerdot101atlivedotcom

Russells British Store at Torrox: We popped into Russells in Torrox yesterday for the first time for quite a while and were so impressed by how much the shop has changed since a previous visit. It now feels like a proper supermarket and is stacked to the ceiling with wonderful products and so much choice and we came out with a loaded basket. It was full of other people stacking baskets too. Just wanted to tell those of you that live on the coast that it is well worth a visit.
