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.

February
–7th Trip To Gib €12pp
-9th Trip to Ardales Pueblo for the Feast of La Matanza. €15pp. Departing Algarrobo Lidl at 10.30 and returning from Ardales at 17.00. Here is some info on the festival which promises to be a good day out feasting on 1000kg delicacies made from pork and all free. The local cuisine of the interior makes the province of Málaga stand out for preserving its identity up until nowadays. Olive oil or wine are some of the most widely claimed products in the last few years. However, the products derived from the pig are now becoming more and more popular. For centuries, they have been an essential element in the pantry of every village household. For more than a decade, Ardales—located in the Guadalteba Valley—has been paying homage to the traditional elaboration of sausages and pork meats by celebrating the Fiesta de la Matanza day. This day allows visitors to learn how sausages and other meat products used to be made, for which local women recreate the traditional methods with ancient tools. There is a local saying that goes, “Del cerdo, hasta los andares”, and the reality is that absolutely every part of the pig is used as it is all so good, especially if it has been reared in and around the village.
-21st Trip to Almeria city. Price €29pp includes Guided tour & coach fare.

WindscribeVPN Pro and Free Versions: WHILE NORD AND EXPRESS VPNs BOTH SUFFERED MASSIVE DATA BREACHES RECENTLY, WINDSCRIBE REMAINS ONE OF THE ONLY MAJOR VPNs TO NOT GET HACKED! GET IT NOW! For Windows, Mac, Linux, plus now Android and iOS Apps (NEW)! Windscribe (Canada) provides access to 480+ servers in 51 countries in the Pro Version. Both versions are very fast. Pro version is IPTV, Netflix and P2P friendly! Very simple install and setup. Comes with both System-wide VPN and also a browser plug-in VPN. Static IP addresses available. No risk- three day cash back refund test period. A free version (not for IPTV) is available providing servers in USA, UK, CAN, FR, NOR, SWISS, GER, NL,  Hong Kong & Romania.  Windscribe sponsors DigameXtra, making a modest donation for every VPN purchased, but only if you use this red link.  Click to Get Windscribe VPN Free and Pro Recommended by DoctorLaptop! As I recently demonstrated to several computer clients, on a 100Mb connection and using the same server location on both VPNs, Canada-based Windscribe Pro VPN tested at 90Mb for both download and upload, while Panama-based Nord Pro VPN tested at only 30Mb download and only 5Mb upload! Don’t take my word for it. From tech review site PixelPrivacy.com: “NordVPN’s Tested Speed: 17.90Mbps average download speed.” “NordVPN’s connection speeds are slow when compared to the speeds of other VPNs.” https://pixelprivacy.com/vpn/nordvpn-review/

Recommendations

Thank you to Archgrove Services: I’d like to thank Steve and Gail of Archgrove Services for their wonderful service. Not only did they expertly pack all of our belongings (they brought their own sturdy packaging materials), they then transported everything 2,640km to our home in the North of England exactly when they said they would. Steve and Gail were absolutely professional, caring about every little detail, efficient, extremely personable and the cost was surprisingly reasonable. For months I’d been dreading what had seemed like a daunting task but these lovely people made it all very easy. I’d thoroughly recommend them; thanks guys! (Look in the Sponsor’s Section at the bottom of the issue for Archgrove’s contact info. -Ed.)
