Malcolm advertises on DigameXtra which gave me confidence to contact him.
Thanks DigameXtra! Gail/La Rabita

Mick Storey’s Carpentry & Joinery: I designed a rather complex set of bespoke cupboards and shelving units for our living room but then struggled to find anyone prepared to take on the job of actually making them. After months of disappointment I spotted Mick Storey’s advertisement in Digamextra and contacted him. He showed a great deal more interest than anyone else I’d spoken to and enthusiastically worked with me to ensure he fully understood the requirements. He was meticulous in the installation and extremely helpful in overcoming the issues that cropped up along the way. He has done a brilliant job of delivering exactly what I wanted, bringing my drawings to life. I’m absolutely thrilled with the results. Thank you Mick.

Listeriosis Outbreak- Threat To Pets? A 72-year-old British man died last Friday, a day after a 90-year-old woman lost her life in hospital in Seville. Two pregnant women also contracted listeriosis, resulting in miscarriage in the first case and a premature birth in the second, at 33 weeks.
Now comes an infected dog? The CEVE, representing Spanish vets, has announced the case of a dog “strongly suspected” of having contracted the infection. According to experts, a 10-year-old greyhound has shown “digestive symptoms” after ingesting contaminated meat. The dog’s owners, a family with several members hospitalized due to the infection, took their dog to the vet last Friday after suspecting that their pet could also be infected. President of CEVE, Delia Saleno, has assured that the dog is doing well, after having suffered “diarrhea for some days”. “Fortunately it is a bacteria that affects dogs less. In this case, it is a 10-year-old animal and therefore its immune system is weaker, so the chance of contracting listeriosis was greater,” she said.
