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!

Updated DigameXtra Office Summer Hours: The office is closed from Friday at 4pm until 9pm Sunday. I don’t do anything DigameXtra related during this time slot.

Jumping jehosofat (fleas) !!!: Despite my dogs and cats having had their flea and tic control meds, I have a problem with fleas. I have one chair, no carpets. Every day I have fresh bites. I have removed the covers and washed them, and sprayed the chair completely, but I still have them. I don’t see them and I don’t feel them, but I am left with extremely itchy bites.
Does anyone know of a product to eliminate these pesky critters? Please text or call me.

Doctors HALT the menopause: Revolutionary 30-minute procedure delays the process by 20 years and tricks the body clock with ovary tissue implant into armpit. A new 30-minute operation that tricks their biological clocks into thinking they are much younger than they are. The revolutionary procedure is set to transform the lives of thousands of women who suffer severe side effects of the menopause, such as osteoporosis and heart problems. For millions more, the appeal of delaying the menopause would be a reduction of often debilitating physical and emotional problems such as hot flushes, a reduced sex drive, night sweats and mood swings.


The world’s biggest accessible geode opens today in southern Spain:
Reduced groups will be able to view the giant gypsum crystals that were discovered 20 years ago in Pulpí, Almería. Geodes are cavities in the rock that are typically lined with quartz, calcite or gypsum crystals, formed quite simply from a recipe of water, minerals and lots of time.
Pulpí’s is now the biggest accessible geode in the world – the largest one is in Naica in Mexico, but temperatures of 50ºC and a difficult location make it impossible to visit. While there has been some concern that tours of the Pulpí mine could lead to the deterioration of the exquisitely translucent crystals within, Tecminsa geologist Francisco Javier Fernández Amo insists that the risk is minimal. He says that the University of Almería has designed a monitoring system that includes alarms if visitor numbers are exceeded, as well as sensors that control temperature, humidity and CO2 levels.
Costing €22 per person, the group tours take a maximum of 12 visitors on a visit of a stretch of 500 meters inside Mina Rica, ending at the massive geode.
