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

NOTICE: Today’s issue contains all the posts that would have appeared in this past Friday’s and Saturday’s issues. So as of now everything is again current and noone has had their posts skipped, just delayed a day or 2. That’s the best I can do. I’m not 100% well yet but DigameXtra is back on track. Thanks for your understanding.  And thanks to all who sent messages of concern & support! -Ed.

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.

Moonette Organic & Aromatic Skincare:
We are a small company based in Torrox, Málaga. We are passionate about health, beauty and aromatherapy. As the founder of Moonette, I firmly believe that the use of aromatherapy cosmetics is one of the best-kept secrets for producing healthy and well cared for skin, taking advantage of the beneficial properties of essential oils that have been used for hundreds of years.
The skin, our largest organ, plays a vital role in our health because it is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination. Therefore, it makes a lot of sense to invest in suitable products for good skin care. At Moonette we specialize in creating formulas which prevent premature skin ageing and reduces the appearance of the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, along with the removal of blemishes and imperfection. During the development of our products we keep in mind that over time, the skin becomes thinner and more sensitive and less firm. Therefore, it requires the use of specific ingredients for treating mature skin. We do this by providing skin with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration and cell revitalization, all of which are from the finest pure botanical oils and natural ingredients. In this way, we do not need to add any artificial, harmful or aggressive ingredients.
We also feel the urgency to reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. One of the actions we’ve taken is to encourage regular customers to recycle and reuse their Moonette skincare containers as much as possible. Customers who recycle the empty containers will receive a small discount on future purchases. At present, we are testing out this scheme in our local community Axarquia and in Malaga.
We are committed to creating easy-to-apply, high-quality and affordable products.

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.


First It Was Flesh Eating Bacteria in the Water, Now It’s Brain Eating Viruses in the Air- Over half of coronavirus patients in Spain have developed neurological problems: New research indicates that Covid-19 is causing a wide range of disorders in the nervous system and may be directly attacking the brain.
This manifested itself in a wide range of symptoms, ranging from headaches to comatose states. In a percentage of cases, neurological conditions were even the principal cause of death. Although these symptoms have been attributed to the body’s excessive immune response to Covid-19, some research indicates that the virus is directly attacking the brain.

Spanish “Secret Police” Tactics Remind Some of the Franco Era: Spain’s intelligence service has a spyware program that targeted Catalan politicians according to sources close to the community. Pegasus, supplied by an Israeli company called NSO, is alleged to have been used in an attempt to access the handsets of parliamentary speaker Roger Torrent and deputy Ernest Maragall. The Spanish Interior Ministry, the National Police and the Civil Guard all claim that they have never had a contract with NSO. So who is doing the spying on their countrymen? Read the full story:
