Casa Magel B&B, 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?

Correction:  The Nerja Players: November 20th – The Rude Mechanicals – You can now reserve your tickets online. reserve your tickets online — The Bard to be a bundle of laughs, but director, Joan Tarver, promises a hilarious experience with her adaptation of scenes from Shakespeare’s best-loved comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. A victorious Theseus is about to marry Hippolyta, defeated Queen of the Amazons. Feisty fairies bicker and plot and cause no end of trouble for the Rude Mechanicals – this band of singularly untalented amateurs – as they rehearse a play they hope to perform to celebrate the forth coming nuptials. Will rival factions reconcile their differences? Can Bottom the Weaver succeed in his bid for stardom? Come and enjoy the fun and frolics.

Information on damage to our car: Car badly dented Competa Wednesday afternoon. Our newly acquired light blue Ford C-Max was badly dented in the left rear wing while parked on the upper level of the town car park in Competa between 1 pm and 4 pm during the afternoon of Wednesday November 7th. See photo. From the amount of dirt that fell out of the chassis under the car and the size of the dent, the car was hit with some force, probably by an SUV given the location of the damage. It cannot have escaped the notice of anybody involved. Did you see this incident? Can you help us with the details of the vehicle (or sledgehammer) involved? Does the perpetrator have the common decency to come forward? Any help very gratefully received. Lyn, Canillas de Albaida Lyn.Harrison @ insightwind.com

UK address: Hello Readers. I am a UK national with an existing modest portfolio of shares and currently living in Germany. To manage this fund I need to show a valid UK address without having to own a property in the UK. There must be many others in this situation and I would like to have suggestions or advice on how to resolve this dilemma.
These answers are not useful.
* Use the address of a relation.
* Rent a room with a Tenancy Agreement.
*A Ltd Co with a postal address.
* Purchase a part-share of a uk property. (then there will be no funds to manage)!!
I will be grateful for answers asap and direct to sjc2714@gmail.com. The reader with the winning answer will have a lunch on me, Tony Pulle

Honda CRV SOLD: Hello, Thanks to digamextra the car has been sold. No need to run the ad again. Best regards, Michel


Dog dumping: A note to the irresponsible and thoughtless person(s) who (Wednesday morning), took it upon themselves to abandon a young dog by placing it within the fully fenced confines of my finca without notice or permission…
If somehow, you had the confounded notion that you were doing good by ‘rehoming’ the poor creature in this manner, you were in a sense correct, as the dog has now found his ‘forever” home in heaven, where the Almighty always had room for such unfortunate and misersble castoffs.
Should I ever see you, yourself, round about the area again, I shall be happy to notify whatever authorities necessary to deal lawfully with you as well.
