Restaurant & Market Deliveries and Open Services
If your business is allowed to operate during the lockdown, send in your details for inclusion to let Readers know. If you know for certain a restaurant is still delivering (none should be offering take-away at this point), have them send in the details including Name of Restaurant, Location, Phone Number, Hours and a photo of their menu (optional). Unfortunately I have received some inaccurate info from well meaning 3rd parties which has caused problems. So now these businesses must submit their own posts, although I will in this case allow them to post even if they are not subscribers. -Ed.

For Sale: Hard case (with wheels) for upright bass
This hard case for an upright bass was purchased brand new in September 2019 and used only once to ship my upright bass from Chicago, USA to Salobrena, Spain. The case has a soft velvet interior and tough heavy-duty nylon fabric on the exterior. It also has wheels for easy transportation, a large exterior pocket for accessories, and several handles for easy handling. My upright bass arrived in Spain in perfect condition inside this case. Sale price is €500 and I have several photos showing both the exterior and interior. Please contact me with any questions or to request for more photos at:
email@example.com or via WhatsApp +34 638 545 824.
Recommendations & Requests
Disposal of household goods: I recently asked in our local information office if there was a particular day to leave an old microwave by the bins.
I was told there isn’t a particular day, but was given a phone number to ring on the day I planned to put it by the bins and they would arrange for it to be removed.
I live in El Morche, but I assume this applies to all areas.
If this was more widely known it would save all of us walking by discarded mattresses, broken cabinets etc that appear overnight by the bins.
So a quick visit to your local ayuntamiento for your area’s phone number will benefit the individual, the relevant authorities, and the environment.
There is no charge.
Hope people find this helpful.

Face masks: I read in DigameXtra that the Spanish Government has recommended that we all wear Face Masks when out, can anybody tell me where I can buy one, I live in Frigiliana, please contact Mike on
Fiber internet: Hi, fiber-optic cabling was installed in my apartment block in Torre Del Mar a few months ago, but I didn’t make a note of who it was that installed it. I have tried Orange and Telefonica, but they don’t provide fiber internet. So does anyone in Digame land know how to track down who is actually providing the service? Please reply to
steveheugh @ yahoo.co.uk.
Thanks in advance, Steve.

Pork Glut- Fear of saturation in the Iberico pork market:
Bars and restaurants are closed and tourism has petered out but between 250,000 and 300,000 pigs are still slaughtered each month. “With zero or near-zero consumption over Easter we need to make sure that there isn’t a glut when Christmas comes…(we) should prevent the Iberico product from devaluing and fetching the same price as chicken,” said Antonio Prieto – president of the Interprofessional Iberico Pig Association.
