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

DoctorLaptop’s famous Annual Clean & TuneUp Service €60: 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 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 repairs, websites/blogs/forums/SEO, business computer maintenance & security service. Free shopping service, send me your requirements, I’ll find you the best deals!
Windows, Apple/Mac, Linux and Android all serviced.
Contact: doctorlaptop AT protonmail DOT com or call 675 993 069 (no calls answered before 11am, missed calls returned asap). Please do not use the DigameXtra email for DoctorLaptop business. Always include the make, model, and version of Windows/Mac installed when emailing for support.

Recommendations & Requests


Pool service: Four years ago I had a PVC pool cover supplied and fitted by (I think his name was Sam) this was secured by an elasticated rope to screw type bolts. Over time this roping has stretched and in places is on the verge of breaking ( I have a sample of this rope) Towards the end of October I will need the rope replaced when the cover is fitted for the winter. If Sam or a competant pool company can contact and supply me with a quoatation for this work I would be grateful.

Dog Crate Loan: I require 2 dog crates for a few days to help transfer 2 rescue spaniel size dogs. Max depth 50 cms each, height and length are no problem, with side doors. Is there someone/group who could loan them to me? 24th-28th July. Cathy, Cómpeta.


Tony Roam Removals: Highly recommended.
We would like to thank Tony Roam Removals for the excellent job they did in transporting our possessions from UK to Spain. Fabulous price too.
They don’t just leave it outside or at the bottom of your apartment block like many others. They bring it into your home and put it wherever you want it.
We would highly recommend Tony Roam. We cannot fault him.
Here s the link to his site: http://www.euroam.co.uk/
Thank you Tony. Take care. Geoff and Jackie, geoffjackie1 @ gmail.com
