Announcements

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!

Dyson Repairer Required: We have a Dyson DC62 hoover which has developed a suction problem.
It keeps cutting out, probably something to do with the control that stops the suction so that the motor doesn’t burn out. Does anybody know of anyone who repairs Dysons?
