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.

Telling friends about DigameXtra: Please do not hand out the submission email to persons who are not already Digamextra subscribers!!! These new people are sending in ads without having read an issue or the rules page, with many errors, creating a ton of extra work for me answering their incorrect submissions. ONLY GIVE NEW COMERS THE WEBSITE www.digameXtra.com, DO NOT HAND OUT THE EMAIL ADDRESS!!! Be sure to tell them they must subscribe and read the Submissions Rules before sending in ads!

DigameXtra Update: You are aware there are other Digame-Torrox inspired Digame-blogs out there, right? With the closing of Digame-Malaga and Digame-Almeria I find DigameXtra is gaining popularity in these areas as their readers seek alternatives. I am now receiving submissions from Almeria to Estepona on the coast, and as far north as Jaen and Antequera. Clearly DigameXtra is growing in both readership as well as area covered. All the more reason to be sure to include your location in every submission! Here are some other Digames I have had contact with:  http://www.digamemallorca.com/  &    http://digamehuercal-overa.org/2017/04/09/digame-one-last-time/

It has been an excellent six months for talks and we have acquired over 20 new members. The Torrox Spanish History Group is a DIY group where members give talks, so a special thank you to all those who gave talks these past six months and also a thank you to those who have committed to giving talks from September onwards.
There will be a trip to Yegan in the Alpujarras in October. I will give the second part of my talk on Brenan in October which will coincide with a visit to the house where Brenan lived in Alhaurin el Granada where he lived with his wife Gamel Woolsey.
