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.

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.


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.  -Editor

Please be careful about believing crisis info posts on Fakebook, Social Media and even mainline news sources: There are tons of hoaxes circulating. If there is no verifiable source provided with the info, while it may contain some degree of truth (as do all good lies) you should always have a healthy degree of scepticism. -Ed.

Fakebook facing advertising disaster as Starbucks is the latest big company to join boycott: With the sudden departure of so many advertisers from Facebook, the world’s biggest social media platform has seen billions wiped from their portfolio. To begin with it was a small number of smaller companies that joined the boycott, but now more and more blue chip companies are getting on board.
These companies include: Coca Cola, Diageo, Starbucks, Honda, Levi Strauss, North Face, Ben and Jerry’s, and Unilever. Full story: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2020/06/29/facebook-facing-advertising-disaster-as-starbucks-is-the-latest-big-company-to-pull-ads/

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.
