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!

Wanted: Architect/Surveyor (el topógrafo). We want to check if the actual boundaries of our land and the data that is in the catastro are correct. And get them corrected if they differ (and I am afraid they will be different).
Does anyone have good experiences with an architect to measure the land, who actually has the capacity to submit corrections to the catastro?
Thanks, Brigitta/Competa
brigitta dot flipse at hotmail dot com
P.S. Most people I know had incorrect data in the catastro. Shouldn’t they be responsible for correcting their mess-up?

Local drummer phenom, 10yr old Sergio Rodriguez from Marbella, tops the charts: Sergio has become the youngest musician to achieve the highest possible drumming grade awarded in music by the prestigious London-based Trinity College, scoring an impressive 87 per cent.
Now that he has achieved the highest possible drumming grade, Sergio is eager for new challenges, such as jazz. “The world of jazz is difficult, but he hopes to have reached a professional level within two years and to develop his musical tastes,” says Habacuc Rodríguez, the young drummer’s father. Sergio wants to become the world’s best drummer. “I want to be like Eric Moore or better,” says the 10-year-old, who seems to transform as soon as he steps on stage. “I want to fill stadiums with my band.”
