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!

Scam Alert: Filled up with fuel at Cepsa on the R4 yesterday near Madrid. My wife paid with a card while I stayed at the car. When she came back she looked at the price shown on the pump and realised that the amount shown on the card receipt was for 10€ more. She spoke to the cashier who pretended that he could not understand how this happened. He refunded the 10€. I wonder how many times he tries this scam each day!
Be warned! Check your receipts. Some people will try anything to steal from you!!

What was once a joke is now a reality. Argintina is doing it’s part to save the world from global warming by collecting cow farts: Some Argentine cattle farmers have outfitted their cows with backpacks that act as containers for cow farts. The backpacks catch and contain almost 300 liters of methane per cow per day. That’s a lot of cow gas—enough to power a refrigerator for an entire day, according to INTA Informa.
