DigameXtra Alert!
I am no longer rewriting every email address or confusing bit of text. I will post it as you send it. If your submission text includes a phone number without including an email, I will assume you do not want your email address posted, only the phone number will appear. If you don’t want to send a phone contact that is ok, but then you must include your email. If you don’t include either, I will copy your email address from the Sender box and use that, without modifying it or inserting spaces. If you make a mistake that gets posted, your correction request must be sent in within 48hrs of publication. If I make a mistake, notify me within 48hrs and I will correct it asap. -Ed.

How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your pics into a single collage pic by using this free (you need to provide email) online tool.

Wanted: Cat-friendly accommodation near London. I have to relocate to the UK for work and am having real difficulty finding accommodation near London that will allow cats. I have 3 adult cats, and we need a home from July 1. I’ll be in the London area throughout June to start work and make permanent living arrangements. For myself, I only need a place to sleep, the only hard requirements are that I can get to work in central London and that the place is safe and comfortable for the animals. They are all house-trained, vaccinated and well behaved. If you have spare accommodation of know someone who does, please get in contact or share. Robert/ Sedella


Wanted: Please Digamextra readers. Am looking for someone who has a surplus of goldfish for my 2,500 litre fishpond. I did have Koi Carp in it for years until a tragedy happened some years ago and now wish to reinstate it with fish, marginal plants and water lilies. If any of you can help me both in fish and plants would love to hear from you. Realistically cannot take them for another week until the water has settled correctly. Am willing to pay a reasonable price for both. My email is : sandra.hendey@gmail.com or phone on 619 471 301. Thank you. Velez Malaga.



UK. Passports: What will happen after we leave the European Union? Will we have to apply for new passports or will we still be able to use them until they expire. In my case that will 2029!’ Anyone have any ideas ??
