How to post more photos than the rules allow – use collages. You can combine several of your photos into a single collage photo by using this free (you need to provide email) online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.fotor.com/create/collage/

Correcting flawed submissions: If you send an incorrect submission, or you forget to include the photos, please send in a new, full corrected submission and ask me to ignore the previous, incorrect submission. I am too busy to keep track of partial submissions in different emails and patch them together. Your cooperation is appreciated.

The beginning of 2020 sees Bill taking the show to yet more European destinations. “Larks in Transit” is a compendium of travelers’ tales and the general shenanigans of twenty years as a travelling comedian. With musical virtuosity, surreal tangents and trademark intelligence, he tackles politics, philosophy, the pursuit of happiness, death metal, ringtones and an excruciating encounter with Paul McCartney. Two decades of life as a comic filtered through what the Daily Telegraph calls ‘the brainiest comic of his generation’.
€35 General admission.

Natterbox: Hi Digamites, Somebody recently told me that it is unlucky to wish people a Happy New Year too long after January 1st, so, just in case, this is NOT a New Years’ greeting!
In November last year, I started a group called ‘Natterbox’, which I described as ‘a short cut to friendships’. Since then, we have had several enjoyable evenings together where we have met up simply to ‘have a good old natter’, what might also be called the ‘art of good conversation’.
Natterbox is an informal group, with no regular meetings, no fixed topics or agendas, to be used by members to meet up spontaneously, in pairs or more, whenever the fancy takes them. So, if for instance you arrive in Spain only to find that few of your existing friends are around at that moment, you would be able to contact people in the Natterbox WhatsApp group to see if they fancy a coffee or a copa! Or perhaps several people you know have decided to return to their home country, and you would like to get to know others, then this may appeal to you.
Our members are currently equally divided between living in Nerja & Torrox, so get-togethers have so far centred around either of those locations. As more people join who might live in other areas, we may choose to venture to other parts.
Please contact me to express interest, & tell me a little about yourself, including where you are based in Spain.
Look forward to hearing from you.

SmileDirectClub- Teeth Straightening System: This company, with a large Facebook presence, says it will fix your smile. It may shush you if it doesn’t. At $1,850, the products are cheaper than braces, and get mixed reviews. “When some of the customers requested refunds, SmileDirectClub asked them to sign the confidentiality provision. The agreement prohibited the customers from telling anyone about the refund and required them to delete negative social media comments and reviews…”.
