€5 Luxury Christmas Meal For The Less Fortunate, Housebound, Mobility Challenged Or Those Far From Friends and Family: Sister’s Taperia in Marbella. Kind-hearted owners of a Marbella restaurant are opening up their doors on December 25 to ensure those who are alone or housebound at Christmas can enjoy a fun-filled festive day. Coco told Euro Weekly News, “We want to offer a quality meal for elderly couples who cannot prepare their own, to people who are unable to leave the home, and to those who would otherwise be very lonely. We can also arrange to pick up and drop off people, and would appreciate if anybody would like to volunteer to help us with this.” Coco and Gemma of Sister’s Taperia in Marbella regularly give up their Christmas to help others.
This year decided to put on a luxury lunch with transport for those who need it for just €5. Coco explained there will be canapes, soups, main course and sweets – subsidised though regular fundraising events.
Sister’s Taperia, in Urbanizacion Los Naranjos De Marbella, can seat up to 60 people. To find out more, call the restaurant on 660 326 955.

The performances of the Young Choir have reaped many successes in the capital of Malaga, having performed in emblematic places such as the Church of San Agustin, Church of the Holy Martyrs, Jorge Rando Museum, Maria Cristina Hall, Carmen Thyssen Museum.

UPDATEDDoctorLaptop’s Computer Service Offers: EXTENDED UNTIL Jan 1st 2020. Only 6 weeks until Windows 7 becomes officially obsolete! Windows 10 v1803 has been obsolete for nearly a month, don’t fall behind!
-Upgrade your Windows 7 computer to Windows 10 AND Set It Up Properly, €70. Ask anyone you know who has set up a brand new computer recently about that process. You get asked a lot of questions in jargon, and they trick you into signing up for services and 30 day app-trials you don’t want, think Norton/McAfee/Dropbox/Office365/etc. Windows now tries to insist you open and use a Microsoft account to log into your computer, it automatically logs you into all kinds of services that run in the background by default, all 32 of them! If you don’t have a Microsoft linked email like Outlook/Hotmail you will be asked to set up a new email with Outlook before proceeding. There is another way to do a setup, without being bound at the hip to Microsoft, but they obscure that button on the opening setup screen, not clearly named and easy to miss unless someone shows you. There are many other settings that can be optimized from the Window’s default settings which are more for Microsoft’s benefit than yours! When doing the upgrade your data is saved, all your 3rd party software is removed by Windows in the process, all saved passwords will need to be re-entered. Some early Win 7 computers cannot be upgraded, or can only be upgraded to Windows 10 32-bit (not 64-bit). If it has a Pentium processor or was built before 2012 this may be the case.
-Update your Windows 10 v1803 computer to the current v1903. Yes, v1803 is now obsolete, having reached it’s end of support on November 12th. That means it will not receive important security patches any longer. It’s recommended NOT to do banking/shopping on an unprotected computer. If you fail to do this soon you may be unable to update to v19H2 (aka v1909) directly thru the Windows Updater,  it will then require you download a special updater tool from MS. Or I can do it overnight, €35. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-1803-users-warned-to-update-before-end-of-support/
-All work by appointment. Make appts by phone, so we can discuss available times and what you need to bring.
-When requesting email assistance always include make/model/System version info.
-Free shopping research! Avoid lemons! Send me your requirements and where you will be shopping (local stores, UK stores or online shop), I’ll check online for the best deals.
