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.

PLEASE READ!: If you use a non-Spanish phone number please type it  exactly as it is dialed from Spain. I am getting complaints from readers who say some provided phone numbers are being submitted with a variety of country codes and are either missing, or have extra, digits. These are unreachable, so you are missing replies. See example in Recommendations.

Phoenix Events: The Phoenix club is based in Torre del Mar.
March
6th – Gib €12pp 08.30 start
27th – Trip to Ecija, Seville Province with guide €22pp includes visiting 3 monuments. Also known by the nickname of the “city of towers”, because 11 towers, nine steeples, and a great many churches, palaces and viewing points rise above its houses, Écija constitutes one of finest collections of monumental buildings in the province. Bordering on the province of Córdoba, 88 km from Seville, stands Écija, a wealthy cereal producing town on the banks of the river Genil. It was Phoenician and later Roman, from which period it still preserves a splendid collection of mosaics. Outstanding among the religious monuments are the churches of Santa María, from the 18th century; San Gil, from the 15th century and in the Gothic-Mudejar style; Concepción, from the 17th century; and Descalzos, a baroque church from the 17th century. Prominent examples of civil architecture are the wonderful palaces, some of them declared to be National Monuments, like that of the Marquis of Benamejí, from the 18th century, or Peñaflor, famous for its long balcony and its paintings on the façade. The squares, fountains and miradors complete this exceptionally beautiful urban and architectural ensemble.
April
3rd – Gib €12pp 08.30 start
All our trips include the driver’s gratuity of €1.
Pick ups in Maro, BP Garage Torrox, Algarrobo, Torre del Mar and the A1 Garden Centre – depending on direction of travel

DoctorLaptop’s famous Annual Clean & TuneUp Service: For Windows & Mac. New “fileless” malware formats evade standard anti-virus programs, making it difficult for typical users to “dis-infect” computers themselves with free, consumer level tools.  If you rely on your computer and want it running at peak performance an annual professional servicing with advanced professional grade tools is necessary. You wouldn’t drive your car till it runs out of oil before servicing it, would you? If you did, the engine replacement  will cost far more than if you had properly maintained it with monthly oil topups and an oil change once or twice a year. It’s the same with computers, you should do a quick cleanup yourself once a month, and get an annual professional service. I do the most comprehensive cleaning and tune-up possible: verify all System files and permissions, replacing any found to be corrupt, test all hardware and do hard disk sector repairs if needed, use a 5 tool malware/adware/spyware removal protocol, clean out junk files/logs/history/etc., update Windows/Mac+all drivers+programs and finally optimize your settings and registry for fastest overall performance. Job usually completed overnight. Heavily infected comps or those showing error messages need a repair, not a maintenance service. Hard disks of 1000Gb or more add €10 and may require 2 days to complete.
ALSO: Computer and tablet repairs, lessons, websites/blogs/forums/SEO, business computer maintenance & security service.
Windows, Apple/Mac, Linux, Android.
Contact: doctorlaptop AT protonmail DOT com or call 675 993 069 (no calls answered before 11am, missed calls returned asap)

Recommendations

Mags of the e-bike: Dear Mags, Something wrong with the number you listed on digame. I am interested if it’s still for sale, please contact me; Julia Nerja 694448600 (Spanish number, also WhatsApp)

 

Watch Repair: These days watch repairers are hard to find. If you go to a watch dealer they are more interested in selling you a new one, so a good reasonably priced reliable repairer is worth travelling to.
I can recommend Guillermo Dominguez. He has a workshop on the third floor of 9 Calle Comedias, 29008 Malaga. There are two car parks near the building. His email is gdominguezleon@hotmail.com and his phone number is 952 22 17 19. He speaks just Spanish.
He is a registered repairer of Omega, Citizen, Suunto, Tag Heuer, Tissot, Calvin Klein, Certina, Zenith, Balmain, Mido, Rado, Longines etc.
I have had 3 dive computers and a watch repaired by him – the quality of his work is outstanding. Vic/Puente Don Manuel. victor.calland at googlemail DOT com

Windows Alert by DoctorLaptop. Bad Updates Released Last Week!: KB4524244 and KB4502496. All versions of Windows.
Microsoft’s February security updates, released last week, came with plenty of technical bumps. Microsoft reported issues after its Feb. 11 security updates got applied.
If these updates installed correctly you can leave them alone. The problems occur when the update installation fails. Evidence of a failed update install include corrupt User Profile (error message- User Profile Cannot Be Found, at login), or a cryptic popup message that “you do not have permission to initiate a shutdown” when you try to log off.
If you find yourself with one of these problems, bring it in to DoctorLaptop in Torrox Costa for repair (675 993 069). Unless you know what you are doing, poking around aimlessly attempting to fix it will just make it harder for me to sort out. (DIYer Hint: Connect computer to your router with an ethernet cable so Windows can access repair files if necessary as wifi will be unavailable at this point. Boot from a recovery flash drive to access recovery tools. You may have to try several recovery methods before one works. If you don’t already know what these tools are and in what order to run them, then this task is probably above your user level! Watch some Youtube video tutorials before starting.)  This is not the place to try the poke-and-hope method! These tools can cause severe damage if used improperly. On some models, especially low budget or older laptops upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10, the repair can be very complicated, requiring an off-line BIOS recovery flashing (processor micro-code re-install) before the Windows system recovery can be attempted. Beware, an incorrect BIOS flash can permenently break your processor!

When the UK leaves the EU on 31 January, there will be a transition period until the end of 2020, during which virtually all EU rules and regulations, including on mobile roaming anywhere in the EU, will continue to apply. What happens after that will depend on what is agreed about the UK’s future economic relationship with the EU, which could include the abolition of, or limits to, mobile roaming charges. Considering the way the EU regulators are attacking big tech companies over poor security and unpaid taxes, I would not expect roaming privilages to be continued after 2020. Using a non-Spanish mobile number also excludes some readers who use PAYG mobile plans that do not allow, or charge more, for international calls. My Spanish friends consider this rude for people who are guests in their country. As they explain, if you were in London and wanted a local service, would you call a Spanish mobile number? Probably not. -Ed.

Heart doctors ‘held back stent death data’: Not all the patients were recruited at the same time. Some were recruited in 2011, others over the years that followed.
So, when the first results were published in 2016, the doctors doing the trial knew there was data about what had happened to some of the patients five years after their stent or heart surgery procedure. But they chose to look only at what happened up to three years after the patients’ procedures and publish that data.
Prof Nick Freemantle, a biostatistician at University College London, said: “If somebody had died three years and one day into the trial, that death wouldn’t have been counted in the results.
“I’m absolutely appalled that they’ve done this,” he said.
“I’ve taken a straw poll of my professional colleagues and it draws disbelief that people would do this,” he said. Full article at: https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51539112

 

Spain launches dedicated Brexit hotline: Callers can ring 060 when in Spain or  +34 902 887060 if calling from abroad and an automated system will offer the choice of either Spanish or English and ask if you are Spanish citizen wanting to live in the UK or a Brit in Spain. https://www.thelocal.es/20200218/spain-launches-dedicated-brexit-hotline

 

A Possible Explanation for the Lack of Customer Services in Spanish Retail Establishments?: In Spanish the word “whistleblower” doesn’t exist. It is revealing that the closest equivalents all have negative connotations, sounding more like snitch, sneak, toad or rat. Another word that doesn’t appear in Spanish but is widely used in English is “accountability” – taking responsibility for one’s public actions.

Strange Objects In The Sky?: The alarm came last night on social networks. Several people shared videos and photographs of strange lights moving in the sky of Tenerife. Some shared the video among their followers, others did so by asking the Canary Islands Institute of Astrophysics what these images were due to.
In a short time the mystery was solved. The fifth deployment of Starlink communications satellites from Cape Canaveral continued their journey to place themselves in the final orbit and illuminated the sky of the Canary Islands in an incredible way.

Costa Del Sol Weather Forecast- Expect a drop in temperature and rain from Tuesday until Thursday morning: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/02/17/costa-del-sol-weather-forecast-expect-a-drop-in-temperature-and-rain-from-tuesday-until-thursday-morning/

 

This new technology generates electricity “out of nowhere”: Scientists at the University of Massachusetts- Amherst have developed the device. Named ‘Air-gen’, it connects electrodes to protein nanowires in such a way that electric current is generated from water vapor naturally present in the atmosphere. “We are literally producing electricity from nowhere,” Yao notes.
The new technology developed in Yao’s laboratory is non-polluting, renewable and low cost. It can generate energy even in areas with extremely low humidity, such as the Sahara desert.
It has significant advantages over other forms of renewable energy, such as solar and wind, Lovley says, because unlike these other sources of renewable energy, the ‘Air-gen’ does not require sunlight or wind, and “even works indoors”.

The Bank of England’s gold vaults hold £194bn worth of gold bars: If you stacked them all on top of each other, they would be the same height as 46 Eiffel Towers. They hardly ever let anyone in to film, but the BBC’s Frank Gardner has been given access to the Bank of England’s gold vault.

 

Pets in China forced to wear bizarre makeshift face masks made by owners amid fears they may catch deadly coronavirus: The World Health Organisation (WHO) has said there is no evidence to suggest pets can be infected with the new strain of coronavirus, which has killed more than 1,000 people and infected around 43,000 others worldwide.
However China’s National health commission has taken a different stance.
Spokesman and epidemiologist Li Lanjuan said: “If pets go out and have contact with an infected person, they have the chance to get infected.
“By then, the pets need to be isolated. In addition to people, we should be careful with all other mammals, especially pets.”
As a result, sales of pet masks are rocketing in China. Others are customizing human masks to accomodate their pets, in some cases with rather humorous results.  Full article, more pics and PHOTOCREDIT: https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10947705/pets-china-makeshift-face-masks-coronavirus/

 

A plague of locusts has descended on East Africa. Entire fields stripped in 30 seconds: East Africa is in the midst of a crisis that sounds like something out of the Book of Exodus: A plague of locusts is spreading across the region, threatening the food supply of tens of millions. City-sized swarms of the dreaded pests are wreaking havoc as they descend on crops and pasturelands, devouring everything in a matter of hours. The scale of the locust outbreak, which now affects seven East African countries, is like nothing in recent memory. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2020/02/locust-plague-climate-science-east-africa/

Long Term Rental: 6-7 Month Rental in La Herradura
Do you know anyone who is interested in finding a very special sublet from March-September? Perhaps you’ve heard good things about La Herradura and would like to experience it first-hand before pursuing a longer term rental or purchase? My villa offers exceptional, unobstructed views to the sea, as well as a very quiet location on the Punta de la Mona. The villa is equipped with everything one would want for a unique experience in comfort and peace as you watch the birds flying over head, and listen to the sea from the terraces and inside the home. We have a Berkey water filtration system so no need to be carting large plastic bottles of water. We also have a clothes dryer and high end appliances, in addition to quality utensils, cookware and tableware. We’ve tried to think of every convenience that would make for a very special experience. This 2 bedroom and 2.5 baths home is exceptionally well equipped with 2 hair dryers, spices in the cabinet, paper products, laundry detergent etc. The master bath is exceptionally well designed with a wonderful large soaking tub and separate, large modern shower. Both baths are ensuite with the half bath upstairs by the open concept kitchen livingroom/dining area. Staying here will feel like you’re moving into a good friend’s or family member’s home. There are 2 terraces with plantings so if one loves to garden, you’d be put at the top of the list although having a green thumb is not a requirement as the watering is on an automatic sprinkler system. The rent is 2000€ per month.
Serious inquiries only please. I would be happy to send along photos and there would be an opportunity to view the villa. Please don’t hesitate asking any questions. Michelle/La Herradura. I can be reached at

Breaking News: Manchester City have been banned from the Champions League for the next two seasons for “serious breaches” of UEFA’s financial fair play regulations. The Premier League champions will be barred from competing in UEFA club competitions and fined €30m (£24.9m), European football’s governing body announced. https://news.sky.com/story/manchester-city-banned-from-champions-league-for-two-seasons-11934156

 

British people could have to pay more tax on properties they rent out on the Costa: Non-resident Brits, who buy half of all properties on the market each year, may be taxed at a higher rate and won’t be able to deduct expenses.
At present EU citizens, although they are not resident in Spain, have to pay 19 per cent tax on the rental income they receive, after deducting related expenses including the commissions charged by holiday rental platforms.
Once the Brexit transition period has ended, because these owners will be residents of a non-EU country, they will have to pay 24 per cent tax on the gross rental income and they will not be able to deduct any type of associated expenses.

CORRECTED PIC: A challenge for any golfer or bowls player who believes they are good at reading the breaks and borrows on a green.
Come and join us for a game of bowls on our green at a beautiful location in the hills above Velez-Malaga.
Similar to flat green bowling, but with some unique slopes and breaks to master, you will find a two hour session both mentally challenging and a good refreshing workout.
We dress casually, and all you need is a pair of light flat shoes.
We can provide the bowls needed, and give tuition on the rules of the game and the bowling techniques required.
Our regular players are both male and female, and we believe in an informal and friendly atmosphere. As an added bonus tea and cakes are provided after the game is finished, adding to the social side of the day.
We play regularly on Mondays and Thursdays. We can make arrangements to play any other day of the week if required.
Come on, enjoy a game, and make new friends. Beginners most welcome.
Contact Mike Hood on 661 234 095 or 951 567 005.

 

Fuengirola’s Perrock festival returns: On February 23, the IX edition of Perrock, a rock festival that donates all its collection to different animal shelters of the town and its surrounding areas, will be held in the Fuengirola Feria ground. José Manuel Martín, Councillor for Youth, has announced this year’s event. “This festival of music will be held from 11am to 11pm. During this time, a dozen artists will perform on stage, including Paco Ventura, guitarist of the famous band Medina Azahara and his son, Gato Ventura, as headliners this year,” explained Martin. In addition to these singers, the bands that have already confirmed attendance at the event are The Coovers, Crummy, Tribute Rock Band, 5 d’Copas, Rewind Band and Moon Rockets. “There will also be stands for animal shelters, vegetarian food stalls and even a performance by the canine patrol,” said Martin, who has encouraged pet lovers to attend the event, even accompanied by their faithful friends.

Recommendations

Dog Care: Our regular dog sitter is unable to help us as she is already fully booked! I need someone to care for our fur baby for five nights next month (19 to 23 March inclusive). A traditional kennel business is not suitable: I am seeking someone who only takes in one or two dogs at a time, possibly has dog(s) of their own, and would treat mine as one of the family.
Ours is a small (4.5kg), castrated male, 6 years old, Chihuahua cross. He shares our home with an elderly cat and loves a lap and cuddles.
If you are that special person, or can recommend someone who is, please message me on WhatsApp/SMS 616 639 831 or email juliedaveclarke@protonmail.com. Thank you. Julie Clarke

 

Action for Animals: A big thank you for the €348 raised on Wednesday’s quiz at Bar Cerezo. Everyone had a good time while helping us to carry on our work with the local animals.
Details for the March quiz will be posted nearer the time.
Megan, (Cómpeta) 642199382

 

Gardening Information: Does anyone have a phone number for a gardener who I know works in the Torrox Campo area, his name is Rafael and I have met him before but do not have a contact number for him.
I know Rafael has an English partner more than that I don’t know.
My gardener has ceased working and I cannot manage the garden myself but need someone who knows what they are doing and can work on their own initiative and I know Rafael has these attributes.
Email : lilian.maddison@btopenworld.com
or Whatsapp : 638897797

 

Vehicle annual and Urbano taxes: It may just be my naivety but I have recently suffered twice from the same lack of knowledge and I thought readers might learn from my mistake.
Last year we sold our house and separately our car and assumed that the dues to the Town hall would be time apportioned between buyer and seller.
We now find out that if you are registered as the owner on 1stJan you are liable for the whole year and can only change that responsibility for the following year.
Obviously armed with this knowledge you can negotiate this with the buyer before sale but it is too late afterwards.
Yours, Alan/Nerja, ablenerja AT gmail DoT com

Recommendations

New florist in El Morche: A new florist shop has opened in El Morche. Going from Torrox Costa it is on the right – not quite as far as the church. You can’t miss it as he has a big display of lovely orchids in the window. He has a selection of lovely house plants, some of them are unusual and I haven’t seen them in other florists. Some outdoor plants. Different varieties of orchids that you don’t usually see. Some samples of beautiful flower arrangements. A selection of plant pots, plant food etc. All at reasonable prices. Nice owner who has some English.
Let’s support his new business venture, it’s a great addition to this area, and if we don’t use it – we’ll lose it!

Scotland is taking steps toward (another) independence vote: Scotland is already taking steps to hold a referendum on independence and believes it is a matter of when rather than if the country separates from the rest of Britain, Scotland’s First Minister said on Monday.
In a referendum in 2014, Scots voted by 55% to stay in the United Kingdom. But independence supporters say Britain’s departure from the EU, which most Scots voted against in the 2016 Brexit referendum, means the situation has changed.

Phoenix events:
The Phoenix club is based in Torre del Mar.
February
21st – Trip to Almeria city. Price €29pp includes Guided tour, entry to the Cathedral & coach fare.
March
6th – Gib €12pp includes drivers tip 08.30 start
27th – Trip to Ecija, Seville Province with guide €22pp includes visiting 3 monuments. Also known by the nickname of the “city of towers”, because 11 towers, nine steeples, and a great many churches, palaces and viewing points rise above its houses, Écija constitutes one of finest collections of monumental buildings in the province. Bordering on the province of Córdoba, 88 km from Seville, stands Écija, a wealthy cereal producing town on the banks of the river Genil. It was Phoenician and later Roman, from which period it still preserves a splendid collection of mosaics. Outstanding among the religious monuments are the churches of Santa María, from the 18th century; San Gil, from the 15th century and in the Gothic-Mudejar style; Concepción, from the 17th century; and Descalzos, a baroque church from the 17th century. Prominent examples of civil architecture are the wonderful palaces, some of them declared to be National Monuments, like that of the Marquis of Benamejí, from the 18th century, or Peñaflor, famous for its long balcony and its paintings on the façade. The squares, fountains and miradors complete this exceptionally beautiful urban and architectural ensemble.
All our trips include the driver’s gratuity of €1. Pick ups in Maro, BP Garage Torrox, Algarrobo, Torre del Mar and the A1 Garden Centre – depending on direction of travel

The Nerja Players will present ‘Gaslight’ next Tuesday:
Bella moves into a not-so-fashionable part of Victorian London with her new husband. However, seemingly he has a secret that he will do anything to protect, even if it means driving his wife insane.

As she fights to retain her sanity, her new husband’s intentions come into question….
The Nerja Players will present a dramatised reading of this Victorian thriller on Tuesday, 18th February, 7.00 pm at The Nerja Bridge Club at the top of C/Castilla Perez. For further details please see our website: https://www.thenerjaplayers.com/
