Wanted: Top Soil. Hi Digamites, I need to source a few tonnes of top soil – probably about 3 to be delivered to my house on the outskirts of Torre del Mar. Can anyone recommend a good, weed-free, reliable source? Not essential but if there is also labour to move the soil to the right location on the garden and spread it that would also be of interest. Thanks, Kerry

Sending files that are too big for an email attachment: Mozilla has finally launched its free, end-to-end encrypted file-transfer service, called Firefox Send, to the public, allowing Firefox Web-Browser users to securely share large files like video, audio or photo files that can be too big to fit into an email attachment. Firefox Send allows you to send files up to 1GB in size, but if you sign up for a free Firefox account, you can upload files as large as 2.5GB in size. The service uses a browser-based encryption technology that encrypts your files before uploading them to the Mozilla server, which can only be decrypted by the recipients.
It’s just an online website where you can quickly upload a file (and protect it with a password if you like) and set an expiration period after which it will be deleted. Simply share the link it generates with whomever you want to have it. The recipients can then simply download the file just by visiting the shared link regardless of whether they use Firefox or not.  https://send.firefox.com/
