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/

DigameXtra Office Summer Hours: The office is closed from Friday at 9pm until 9pm Sunday. I don’t do anything DigameXtra related during this time slot. DoctorLaptop continues to work Monday thru Saturday as usual.

Medical Interpreter: I would like to recommend Pamela Walshe who has advertised here as a medical interpreter. (Mobile 609 040 709)
Hospitals can be confusing and distressing places in whatever language. She knows the ropes, so to speak, and has assisted me many times. It is wonderful to be shown where to sit and relax in the knowledge that someone else is knocking on the right doors and watching my place in the queue. This in itself is a huge advantage apart from the translation with the doctor.
She has a set fee, no matter how long the appointment and she also picks up from one own front door if required.
I am a happy customer. Margaret/Nerja, mbatt@email4us.com


Movers: Men with Vans. We’ve just used them to move out of our village house and they were great, got stuck in and cheerfully moved everything despite the difficult access and hot weather – no hesitation in recommending them, Sue Leaker, Torre del Mar
