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!

Brunch In The Park: Loma del Castillo Sohail, Marenostrum Fuengirola. 18 August 1pm. Almost Sold Out! Only Premium Preferred Seating Seats Remain.
The event transforms on Sunday into a great party for the whole family since it will mix the best sessions of the global electronic music with gastronomy, design and activities for the little ones. Like their counterparts, the event will have a wide range of activities so that families can enjoy the festival’s experience. Within the Petit Brunch program there will be various activities for children, as well as innovative children’s projects.
Brunch -In The Park is a festival that is committed to quality food, made with ecological products and kilometer 0, to gather strength before and after dj’s sessions and ensure healthy leisure to all attendees.
As part of the motto ‘Alegría y Compromiso’ and DNA of the brand, concrete actions of community, sustainability and equality will be organized. The objective is that the Loma del Castillo Sohail, which is where this event will take place, becomes a great party where everyone, big and small are protagonists, and all mixed with the best music, gastronomy, leisure and media ambient.

Solar filming: Does anyone out there in Digame land know anyone who can repair/fix solar filming in Torrox area to two door size windows? and how much we could expect to pay? We are also looking for a roller blind supplier – any advice appreciated – Paul & Lynda/Torrrox Park.


Sayalonga Outings: In these scorching, hazy lazy summer days I would recommend a visit to the Museo Morisco de Sayalonga or Sayalonga Moorish Museum. The detailed visit could take you up to one hour of paintings, literature, flamenco and local history. Just a big change from the crowded coastal scene. Your guide Gema speaks some English too and it’s FREE.

You’re very easy to track down, even when your data has been anonymized! By MIT Tech Review: A new study shows you can be easily re-identified from almost any database, even when your personal details have been stripped out. The data trail we leave behind us grows all the time. Most of it isn’t that interesting—the takeout meal you ordered, that shower head you bought online—but some of it is deeply personal: your medical diagnoses, your sexual orientation, or your tax records.
