DigameXtra on Facebook Update: OK, so I started from scratch, set up a new email, signed up for a new FB account, set it up and proceeded to add a new DigameXtra page. I was almost done when up pops a message saying there was suspicious activity on my account and I must do an identity confirmation, demanding my mobile number. I was still in my very first session in a brand new account, how is that possible! The same issue blocking me from my old FB account! The codes never reach my mobile! So, for now I am giving up on Facebook.

DELAYED: Flamenco Series in Malagalingo delayed to the month of May. Our teacher Alicia Rojo will be very busy this April with performances, including her performance on Saturday the 13th at the Teatro de Torrox, of which we attach a poster. And it is for this reason that she has asked us to delay the Flamenco cycle in Malagalingo until the month of May. Thank you all and we look forward you in May.
Until then, if you like what you see consider taking the next step with Malagalingo classes: Every Wednesday and Friday we have single conversation lessons for €5 in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, and on our outdoor terrace when the weather is nice, from 10:00 to 11:00 for the initial level and 11:00 to 12:00 for intermediate level.
We look forward to meeting you!

Gas bottles: Someone called Martin has advertised in today’s digamextra the sale of two gas bottles. He is also suggesting that they could be used for a hobby craft by making them into a letter box or barbecue. Unless you know exactly what you are doing, cutting into a gas bottle could easily cause an explosion. Very dangerous suggestion.
Kind regards, Phil/Alhama de Granada; mcaleerpj AT aol DOT com (Unfortunately this idea of modifying gas bottles was promoted on a BBC2’s The House That £100k Built television program episode and has gained popularity despite being potentially dangerous as well as illegal in many areas. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2460037/BBC-DIY-programme-shows-renovator-cutting-gas-canister-light-fitting.html .-Ed.)

SOS Animals to Close: Inland dog charity, SOS Animals, is to close in June and is urgently appealing for people who can offer a loving home to any of its dogs. SOS (Spay Our Strays) was founded on the Costa del Sol in 1997 and has been run by a small team of dedicated volunteers and supported by its sister charity, SOS Sweden, and Costa Canine Rescue UK.
The land where the Coín-based refuge is situated was sold after the owners returned to the UK and volunteers at the charity have been unable to find suitable, alternative accommodation for both the dogs and for the volunteers who help care for them. The refuge centre, which has rehomed thousands of dogs over the last 22 years, has announced that it can no longer accept dogs and is focusing all its energies on rehoming the animals in its care.
