Music events: Hi folks, I’m Dana Andrews, I’d like to present you two concerts I’ll have this week. In Nerja, Dana & Gianni duo.
-Friday 8 March starting at 8pm. The bar/restaurant is called La Güena Genta, located in Avenida Pescia 21. I would like to spend a few words, because last Friday I shared very emotional moments…it was the first time we played there, we created a very warm and engaging atmosphere, and the audience enthusiastically participated! It was amazing! This is a very simple place, but the owner is a very welcoming woman. The food is very good! For the music’s evening there is an offer, which consists of a fish or meat dish with vegetable side dish and a dessert for 10 euros. You can even just have a drink. The first drink is 5 euros.
-Saturday, March 9th starting at 11pm, instead we will play at Velez Malaga, Casarte Azul, very elegant and refined place, camino viejo de Malaga 22, this time with the Trinity trio. (see the two posters) Thanks a lot for your attention, waiting to meet you soon, I wish you a joyful day!

It’s Curry Night again this Friday (and every Friday) at the area’s first plant-based (vegan) restaurant, Meson Mudejar, a couple of kilometers below Canillas de Albaida in the quaint and authentic small white village of Archez. David and Kinga prepare international, handmade international varieties of delicious plant-based dishes. Meson Mudejar also features theme nights like Friday’s Curry Nights when local musicians offer entertainment and there’s a special curry menu at 15€ for a three-course meal, opening at 19:00. The menu includes: starter is onion fritter (Pakora). Main course: three curries to choose from—Chicken-Free Balti, Red Lentil Dal or Chickpea Curry (takes a day and a half to prepare). Dessert: Bengali Saffron Cheese Dessert. All sauces are hand designed, all plant-based, all very tasty and healthy. And the ambiance is magic and rustic and real. Imagine yourself entering a gypsy cave, a rustic and authentic Moroccan mountain village home, half restaurant, half B & B. White it seats 37, reservations are recommended.

Vetiver Spain: March is the best time of the year to plant Vetiver. After planting Vetiver for almost 10 years now we know that the best results are when Spring comes around. This way Vetiver has a full spring and summer to absorb the heat of the summer. This plant is indigenous to India and loves the heat.
Vetiver Spain has prepared an article on “When is the best time to plant Vetiver?”

Facebook User Alert from DoctorLaptop!
-Now Facebook is allowing anyone to look you up using your security phone number (or the email address you registered with)! Anyone else you call on that phone has your number and can FB search it to discover more about you! FB can also be searched for the owner of a given email.
Last year it came to light that Facebook was using the Two Factor Authentication (2FA) phone numbers people submitted to the company, solely so they could protect their accounts with 2FA, for targeted advertising. Now Facebook is allowing anyone to look up a user by their phone number or email. Expect similar behavior from the rest of the internet services that use 2FA. Adding insult to injury Facebook won’t let users opt out of this privacy violation they never opted in to. The most you can do is limit who can look you up, from the default “Everyone” to “Friends,” but you can’t hide it entirely.
If users want to try to claw back some of their privacy from Facebook’s latest data grab, go into the Settings of your Facebook account, click Privacy, then click “How People Find and Contact You.” Then click “Who can look you up using the phone number you provided?” and change the dropdown box from “Everyone” to “Friends.”

-Five Ways to Find the owner of an Email Address on Facebook: Just because you are not “Friends” does not block someone from collecting info about you by searching FB for your email address. More at: https://www.lifewire.com/find-email-address-using-facebook-3481988
