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.

PLEASE READ!: If you use a non-Spanish phone number please type it  exactly as it is dialed from Spain.

BREAKING NEWS: Fuengirola And Marbella Struck By Coronavirus As 3 New Cases Are Confirmed. The Coronavirus has hit both Fuengirola (1) and Marbella (2) with positive tests confirmed by the ministry of health. All 3 people confirmed have been taken into isolation and are being transfered to a hospital in Seville. This now confirms 5 cases in Andalusia in total.
The cases thankfully are not believed to have come from a super spreader but those who have been travelling and picked up the deadly virus.


February 29 is a “leap day” : Why Are Leap Years Necessary?
Adding an extra day every four years keeps our calendar aligned correctly with the astronomical seasons, since a year according to the Gregorian calendar (365 days) and a year according to Earth’s orbit around the Sun (approximately 365.25 days) are not the exact same length of time. Without this extra day, our calendar and the seasons would gradually get out of sync. A “leapling” is a person born on a leap day.
Leap Year Facts and Folklore
-Ages ago, Leap Day was known as “Ladies Day” or “Ladies’ Privilege,” as it was the one day when women were free to propose to men. Today, Sadie Hawkins Day sometimes applies to Feb 29 (leap day), based on this older tradition.
-According to folklore, in a leap year, the weather always changes on Friday.
-“Leap year was ne’er a good sheep year” (old proverb)
