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/

CORONA VIRUS HOTLINE: Information hotline for those who suspect they may have the coronavirus. Anyone experiencing symptoms should stay at home and dial 900 400 061 or 955 545 060 – and only call 112 in an emergency. http://www.surinenglish.com/local/202003/13/hotline-those-suspect-they-20200313114414-v.html

NOTICE! : Most events are cancelled or postponed due to the pandemic. All stores besides food markets and pharmacies are closed. (Food delivery services may be possible, but confirm it). Confirm any business you intend to visit remains open. Business and Services posts in DigameXtra do not indicate the business is open during the lockdown unless they specifically mention they are remaining open.  -Ed.

When you need reliable info consult The Citizens Advice Bureau Spain at https://www.citizensadvice.org.es/…or the website or Facebook page of your local Town Hall (Ayuntamiento). I suggest you check it daily. BEWARE OF FAKEBOOK HOAXES & POORLY RESEARCHED NEWS ARTICLES !


Sponsor’s Notice: While I did continue posting sponsor banners daily and auto repeat posts weekly, all sponsor accounts were put on hold during the lockdown.
I am not including the lockdown time against your sponsor donations. As soon as it is confirmed we enter Phase 1 next Monday I will reactivate all sponsor accounts. You will be given credit for the entire lockdown time as I will add those approx 56 days to your account balance. I will send out account updates to all sponsors at that time.
Two sponsors, Vetliver and SPW Construction, have so far indicated they do not wish to receive any “free time” credit; that is very generous and greatly appreciated! I’ve been working my ass off during the lockdown to keep DigameXtra going; it’s a lot more work when I am providing most of the content myself. Hopefully I can resume the normal operations with primarily reader submitted content next Monday.
Hope you are doing well, and thanks for your continued support. -Ed.

Grateful To Be Allowed Outdoors Celebration Issue

A Video To Celebrate The Relaxation Of Lockdown- WE WILL SURVIVE (Touch of Grey) by The Grateful Dead!

One For The Deadheads: A huge online collection of live Grateful Dead concerts you can listen to online for FREE!
Bass players/fans alert– hear the two baddest bass notes IMHO ever played, at 3:00 and 3:30 of this track, I Know You Rider, Tampa FL 1985 ( the Dead’s Phil Lesh on a custom 6 string custom Alebmic bass, with a nitrous tank on stage he was hitting heavily ). These notes are so low that if you have good speakers and ears you will hear them as a series of rapid clicks rather than a continuous tone, on the very bottom end of the human audible scale. The Dead had resurrected the infamous “Wall of Sound” system for this part of the tour. I was there taping the show and seriously worried that those notes would break my Nak 300 shotgun mics. The version of the song I link to below is a SBD/AUD matrix recording done by a friend, better quality than mine since he was allowed to plug into the soundboard as well as use his AKG condenser mics. Be careful of your speaker volume when you listen to this! Sorry Entwhistle fans, I loved John’s playing, and he may well have had faster fingers, as did Jaco Pastorius, but they never went this low. The only other bass notes that come close are Allen Woody with the Allman Brothers playing Whipping Post on a custom 18 string bass in the early 90’s. What makes me an authority on bass notes? I was Allen Woody’s personal recording engineer 1990-1999, and archivist/engineer for both the Allman Bros and Gov’t Mule tours for that decade, besides working at or attending many hundreds of other concerts including 416 Dead shows over the years. Yes, I am available for recording/mixing/mastering/producing services.
Listen to this remarkable version of I Know You Rider, Tampa FL 1985 here. Open the link and click the play button: https://archive.org/details/gd1985-10-26.126295.chasingwilma.flac24/gd1985-10-26-24bits02t02.flac
Evidently other iconic bass players also liked this very special custom instrument, just look at Jack Cassidy’s face (bass player for Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna)!


La Vuelta Bicycle Race Rescheduled: One of the world’s top road races, La Vuelta will now start in October, after the mid-August start in the Netherlands was scrapped due to the coronavirus crisis. There is one major drawback in that the event will clash with the last few days of another rearranged race, the Giro d’Italia. La Vuelta will now start on October 25, meaning a five-day overlap with the Italian Grand Tour event which will begin on October 3.
That will mean that the world’s top cyclists will have to make a decision over which event to enter, with the Tour de France rescheduled to begin on August 29.

Full Moon of Flowers: The Last Supermoon of 2020 Seen from Spain. This Thursday, May 7, you will be able to experience the last supermoon of the year, in which the Earth and the Moon will be closest to each other during the fifth lunar phase, that is, a full moon.
Royal Observatory of Madrid has reported that from dawn on Thursday May 7 until Friday May 8, 2020, the moon will reach its fullest phase. This supermoon is called the Full Moon of Flowers because it coincides with the time in which nature is filled with flowers as spring finally blossoms in the northern hemisphere.

DIGAMEXTRA NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT !!! It’s business as usual on the Internet, and Internet services bills must still be paid! There is no sponsor income during the lockdown. From the beginning of lockdown I put all sponsor accounts on hold until they can operate again. So, businesses and readers, please consider making a donation or becoming a DigameXtra Sponsor to help pay the production expenses and WordPress bills. Email for sponsorship info. You can join the Sponsor list and be rewarded with extra posting privileges. Donations of cash or your old but working computers, tablets or smartphones graciously accepted. You may drop these off at the DigameXtra office in Torrox Costa, but please call before coming over, 675 993 069. Or I can meet you at the Torrox Costa Lidl or Aldi or tobacco shop near the bus station if that makes it easier for you. Another possibility is to buy Amazon gift cards online and have them emailed to me at the submission email address. You can send these from Amazon ES or Amazon UK. Sorry, no bank or Paypal. Donations are not tax deductable. Thank you.


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 or offering take-away, 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.

What if Spain’s state of alarm comes to an end on May 9?: If PM Pedro Sánchez does not secure congressional approval to extend the extraordinary measure on Wednesday, experts say confinement orders will no longer be legally binding.
The state of alarm has been in place since March 14, when confinement measures were first imposed. Since then, the extraordinary measure has been extended three times, and is currently set to come to an end on May 9.
Sánchez, however, cannot extend the state of alarm without the approval of Congress. The coalition government led by his Socialist Party (PSOE) and junior partner Unidas Podemos does not count on a working majority in Congress, meaning he needs votes from other groups to pass legislation. But it is not clear whether the prime minister will have enough votes on Wednesday to secure the approval of the extension.
If Sánchez fails to secure approval on Wednesday, almost all the measures the government has introduced to address the coronavirus crisis would be immediately dissolved. But would this mean an end to the confinement orders and to the ban on travel? What alternatives are open to the government? Does that mean the Spanish government will not be able to take any action if it cannot extend the state of alarm? “No,” says Gerardo Pérez, a professor of constitutional law at La Laguna University, “There are laws that establish the possibility of confinement, but only of people who are sick.” Full story: https://english.elpais.com/politics/2020-05-05/what-if-spains-state-of-alarm-comes-to-an-end-on-may-9.html


Should an exception be made for Axarquia in de-escalation phases?: Junta spokesman, Elias Bendodo, suggested that Axarquia should skip one of the national government’s coronavirus de-escalation phases. “Areas with a lower incidence should be one phase ahead,” Bendodo claimed. “There are very many municipalities with no cases,” he argued, pointing out that the president of Spain’s government, Pedro Sanchez, has already said that there would be “more flexibility.” Bendodo also lamented that Spain’s autonomous regions had not been able to take part in the de-escalation plans. “Governing is one thing but transmitting the rules is another,” he said.

These banners do NOT indicate the business is open during the Alarm Period. They are simply promos like a roadside billboard. I see no reason to remove them. By now everyone should know non-essential travel is banned. Call Sponsors for their current status as most, but not all, must be closed. -Ed.

All current Sponsors have received extensions to their Sponsorship expiration dates to compensate for the lockdown time we are experiencing. -Ed.
