EDITOR’s RECOMMENDATION: J.J. Sprondel Live!: Arroz republicano. A rare chance to see one of Spain’s best homegrown acts perform in our part of the coast! Saturday at 3 PM – 5 PM.
Plaza de la Laguna, 29720 Rincón de la Victoria (Málaga)
“This Saturday, the 18th we return to the volleys of sonic hosts, if time and the benevolent old and new gods allow it. We will be claiming the independence of Cala del Moral, not as a municipality, but as a nation. A large and free. There will be rice, it is all that we can guarantee, and even that is not safe. The event will take place in the emblematic Plaza de la Laguna, historical and cultural center of our beloved town / nation. To come, it will be fun, probably, who knows.”

Eliminating Insects: May I add my abhorrence at using wipe out sprays on our insects. We do this at our peril. Please look at the bigger picture. All the information is out there and is frightening to read about. Worldwide the reduction in both quantity and diversity of this section of the animal kingdom is alarming, and us humans most certainly cannot survive long term without them.
