DigameXtra user tip! How to get around the “3 pics max per For Sale ad” submission rule!

Want to include more photos than the submission rules allow? Use collages to post more pics per post. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool. So by using this tool, your 3 pics submitted may actually be many more pics. See this example where I put four pics into a single photo. Following this example you could post 12 pics total but only send in 3 pics. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

This is a single photo created from 4 separate photos. Try it!

Flight Of the Shaman – Dynamic Dance:
With all my heart I invite you to the Dynamic Dance Meditation “The flight of the Shaman”where you will have a chance to go inside of those three worlds and bring back gifts, souvenirs, and presents which are waiting for You.  To transform and reconnect with ones power, a shaman takes a journey or a flight into the three shamanic worlds:
Lower World, the underground, where the unconditional love, guidance and power animals awaits; Middle World, all that surround us, mountains, seas, trees, stones, animals, other human beings, spirits of the Mother Earth which are calling out to us, supporting us, reminding us that we are not alone in this world; Upper World, where our beneficent spiritual teachers live.
Surround by the depths of music, your flight will begin with the movements, with the dance your body wants to make. There are no wrong and there are no right moves, there are only moves that free your soul.
What to bring: you, yourself, open mind and heart; comfortable clothes for the dancing; yoga mat; water; blanket to cover up; bandana.
We will be dancing bare feet so please do not worry about the dancing shoes. Prepare your intention and/or a question that you would like to have answered.
-whatever will be shared in the circle, stays in the circle;
-please don’t come while intoxicated (alcohol, other substances changing perception)
-if you are a smoker please try to have a last cigarette an hour before the meditation;
Duration: 1hr 30 minutes; Investment: 20 Euros per person; When: 27th of April 2019 at 18:00; Where: Espacio Luz Vida ,

Use “Lite Apps” to speed up your Android phone/tablet: Due to age or low RAM or slow processor speed your Android phone may seem to be performing slower than you would like. Most Android users already know to turn off backround apps and bluetooth if not currently in use, to conserve power resources and the amount of RAM being used. What else can you do to speed things up?  To boost the performance of your Android phone try installing the lightweight versions of your mobile applications (apps). If you are using the standard heavy weight version of the Facebook app in a phone with low RAM the app may be very slow. It is probably better to replace it with a lighter version of the same app, Facebook Lite, in this case. It is designed to work with minimal resources, even on old-school 2G connections, and on a phone with only 1GB of RAM. There are similar “lite” versions of most popular apps available in the Store. You may be able to get another year out of that device after all!   -DoctorLaptop
