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.

Become a DigameXtra Sponsor and enjoy the elevated posting privileges! Sponsor fees start at €50 for 3 months. Way better exposure than the local ad mags for less money, with over 3600 issues delivered by email every morning to subscribers who want to read your ad. Plus hundreds of Facebook page visits and website visits daily. DigameXtra is growing and new Sponsors join up every month, don’t get left behind. Print ads are so 1980’s, today internet exposure is far more important. Email for details.

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. So by using this tool, each pic submitted may actually be many more pics combined. https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Television Problem: Hi are there any tv repair men out there. Our tv works fine but the volume sign stays on. Help please. Elizabeth. Caleta phone 648917219.


Recommendation Phil Stockton – Plastering and damp services: We have just had some extensive plastering and damp-proofing work done in our pueblo townhouse by Phil Stockton, who covers the Digamextra area. He came very highly recommended to us. We have to say that Phil totally exceeded our expectations. Apart from being an expert in his trade, he is extremely professional, punctual and takes a major interest in the problem that needs to be solved. I can’t recall having ever met a more diligent tradesman than Phil.
His prices are very reasonable too. In turn, we therefore have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Phil to other Digamextra subscribers who may be needing to undertake plastering projects and/or have damp problems to solve.
If you need to contact Phil, you can do so on 648 24 36 56.
His website is www.stockton.es

Goldfish: Thank you Naythan for your prompt attention to my advert for goldfish. I have had a good response and at the end of next week can enjoy my fishpond again. Sandra Hendey, Velez Malaga.


Recommendation, masseur: I would like to recommend Antonia Maeso shiatsu masseur. Calle Arropieros 18: Nerja. telephone 696764571. I had an excellent massage yesterday in lovely relaxing surroundings. Antonia speaks a little english. Gwen/Nerja gwenroyle @ gmail dot com


Medical Appointments Problems: Yesterday I had an appointment with a dentist in Algarrobo. When I turned up it was to find that the surgery was an empty shell with six builders in it. Nobody had let me know.
Last week my husband had an appointment with the doctor at El Morche. I booked it online with Salud Responde as I have done many times before. After a long wait we were told he wasn’t on the list, despite having a printed confirmation. This is the second time this has happened. Has anybody else had a problem with this online booking system recently? I prefer it but I am losing confidence in it.
Carole, El Morche ; carolemhart@yahoo.com


Menu del Dia Wanted: Hello, I’m looking for a recommendation of a good menu del dia in Torrox Costa. If you know of one please let me know. Much appreciated
