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/

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!

Whereabouts of Ear specialist (Otorrino) Dr. Alexander Dreier? Quite some time ago, I received excellent specialist ear treatment at Clinica Rincon, Nerja. The (German) doctor’s name was Dr. Alexander Dreier. Unfortunately, I now need some more ear attention, but Clinica Rincon have advised me that Dr. Dreier no longer has a surgery there and they do not know his whereabouts. Does anyone out there in Digameland, know if Dr. Dreier is still practising in this area, and if so, where he is located? Many thanks. Ann (Arenas de Velez). Email: bexwa AT hotmail DOT com.


Big Taxis: Need a bigger taxi. Does anyone know of a taxi service in the Torre del Mar area that can offer a vehicle for 5 or 6 passengers? Margaret, Benajarafe,
ron_margaret @ hotmail dot co dot uk


Jazz Cards: Is there any one out there in the Nerja area who used to buy the Jazz cards or a voucher for phoning landline to the UK only costing 5 or 6€. I have a elderly friend who is not connected to WiFi or has a all singing and dancing mobile phone. I used to phone her regularly this way but now can not find any where that does them. I know I can write a letter but its not the same as a good chat. Any suggestions please. Patricia ( Frigiliana)
