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.

Recommendations & Requests


Recommendation for Solar Shades: We have just had our large conservatory windows tinted with solar shading. This has made the room comfortable to relax in without the sun blazing through. It was completed by Ian from Solar Shade who worked very professionally to create the perfect job. Window tinting for houses offices cars boats anything with glass.

News & Articles

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.


New Facemask Regulations Expected to be Approved Monday: The president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, has announced his intention of making the use of face masks compulsory in all public places in the region. During a visit to Ceuta on Saturday, Moreno said that the measure would be considered on Monday at the meeting of medical experts who advise the regional authority on coronavirus policies.
The new Andalucian ruling would mean that masks must be worn in all public spaces, regardless of whether this distance can be observed. The regional governments in Catalonia, the Balearic Islands and Extremadura have already made similar moves to tighten the regulations on face masks.

China’s Covid-19 story- coverup or conspiracy theory?: Scientists from the Wuhan laboratory close the original coronavirus outbreak have defected to the west, according to an incendiary claim from Steve Bannon, formerly Donald Trump’s White House chief strategist.
Speaking to the Mail on Sunday Mr Bannon sensationally claimed “defectors” from the nearby Wuhan Institute of Virology were cooperating with western intelligence services- although this has not been proven to be true.
“People around these labs have been leaving China and Hong Kong since mid-February. [US intelligence] along with MI5 and MI6 are trying to build a very thorough legal case, which may take a long time.” Mr Bannon also claimed the facility may have been bugged by the French when French companies helped construct it.
