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 online collage creation tool. It’s very easy to use, give it a try! https://www.photocollage.com/

COVID-19 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).


Fix For Subscription Problems For iCloud.com Email Users: Several readers using Apple’s iCloud email service have reported they have stopped receiving daily email issues. They are still subscribed, and their daily issues are being sent, but iCloud is blocking the delivery of new blog issues into the subscriber’s email. The problem is due to Apple vs Google compatibility issues. Each blames the other. If this applies to you, you must contact iCloud email support by phone (UK 0800 107 6285 / ES 900812703) or via the “Help/Support” in your email (phone is better) and request they unblock the https://digamextra.com WordPress blog by “whitelisting” this address: donotreply@wordpress.com
It is a common problem that the Apple iCloud support workers are familiar with. In this manner this problem has been fixed by many Apple users who are DigameXtra followers. Until you get this fixed you can visit the blog directly at https://digamextra.com, and you are still subscribed, so you may continue to make submissions.

Moonette Aromatic Skincare for 40+
*We are a Torrox based company specializing in the creation of formulas which help prevent premature skin ageing*
As our skin is the first layer of our defence against microbial infections, ultraviolet radiation and environmental contamination it plays a vital role in our lives. As we grow older however, our skin will become thinner, more sensitive, less firm and require the use of treatments containing specific ingredients to the care of treating mature skin.
Recognizing this need we have created a range of formulas which help reduce the appearance of the signs of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, and also by eliminating blemishes and imperfection.
At Moonette, we are passionate about health, beauty and plants. Your skin will benefit from the properties of botanic essential oils combined with a selection of nutrients for deep hydration and cell revitalization, all sourced from the finest natural ingredients.
Naturally, we care about our planet and feel the need to help reduce the sheer volumes of plastics waste that are generated daily around the globe. Presently, we are minimizing the usage of plastic materials in our production while seeking alternative forms of packaging. To help reduce pollution we are asking all customers to recycle or reuse their Moonette skincare containers, and offering:
* A discount on future purchases to clients recycling containers
Free testers of eye cream, face cream, and body cream are available on request. You can also try out testers in 2 beauty salons in Torre del Mar and Puente Don Manuel (Alcaucin).
September Sale- 10% discount if you purchase 2 items in a phone or an email order. To find out more or to order, please call us on 650 044 102.

Community garden/allotment/huerto?: Are there any people out there who would be interested in getting together with others to find/rent a piece of land to start growing fruit/vegetables/flowers, on a co-operative basis, using permaculture methods? I am interested in being involved in something like this, in the Torrox costa area. Or does something similar already exist? I am interested in Torrox costa area because I do not have a car and don’t want one. So have to find somewhere accessible by public transport or walking.
