The Nerja Players: AN INSPECTOR CALLS
October 30, 2018 – 7:00 PM
Director: John Brentley
https://www.thenerjaplayers.com/2018-19-programme
An Inspector Calls is a play written by English dramatist J. B. Priestley, first performed in September 1945 in the Soviet Union and in 1946 in the UK. It is one of Priestley’s best known works for the stage, and is considered to be one of the classics of mid-20th century English theatre. The play takes place on a single night in April 1912, focusing on the prosperous upper middle-class Birling family, who live in a comfortable home in the fictional town of Brumley, “an industrial city in the north Midlands”. The family is visited by a man calling himself Inspector Goole, who questions the family about the suicide of a young working-class woman, Eva Smith (also known as Daisy Renton). Long considered part of the repertory of classic “drawing room” theatre, the play has also been hailed as a scathing criticism of the hypocrisies of Victorian and Edwardian English society.
Doors open at 18.45 hours and the programme will start at 19:00 hours. We use the premises of the Nerja Bridge Club – entrance is through the blue doors at the top of Calle Castilla Perez 1, Nerja. We are between Salon de Juegos and Supermarket.(See map) Do come along and share an enjoyable evening with us. Contact via email: admin @ the nerja players .com (no spaces)

Quiz at La Tasca: We are having the Axarquia animal quiz again this Wednesday at 3pm. All proceeds to help the animals. La Tasca is in Torre del Mar opposite the Police station. Please call us on 640328051 or 640569988. We serve a range of dishes and all day breakfasts. Open Mon-Sat.

Thanks: I’d like to thank Naythan and readers for helping me master the new healthcare website for making appointments online. Valerie. Torrox. ; vjfahey 0 @ gmail . com

Taxi from Malaga airport: Thanks for the reminder regarding getting a taxi from Malaga airport. I cant emphasize this enough; always confirm the taxi fare before commencing the journey and don’t think you can negotiate all the taxi firm’s little extras afterwards. We made this mistake a while ago and it was such an awkward situation. After the taxi journey was over, the fare was ‘totalled up’ and I didn’t know exactly how would be best to handle it.
The language barrier made it worse, so I was quite embarrassed but at the same time frustrated that I hadn’t agreed the exact cost. There’s all manner of little journey extras that seemed to go on the bill.. like minimum taxi fare rates, rate changes after certain hours and waiting charges! We now use https://www.malagaairporttaxi.net/ mainly because of the TripAdvisor reviews ( https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g187438-d9461526-Reviews-MalagaAirportTaxi-Malaga_Costa_del_Sol_Province_of_Malaga_Andalucia.html and secondly our experience) Don’t be fooled in to thinking that you have to pay up front as we didn’t pay until after the driver dropped us off at the accommodation. However the difference is there’s no added taxi fare. What you agree is what you pay.
Thanks again for the reminder. At least I won’t make that mistake again. By prebooking, I will always know what my fare is in advance. Pam 5pamd3l@gmail.com

Help with Gardening: Hi Digamites! We have just come back to Spain for our winter stay in Nerja (timing could have been better, given the weather!). During the summer here, our small garden has transformed into a jungle & we need some basic help to tame it. Nothing fancy, just lots of cutting back, but we do need the rubbish taking away too. Any recommendations gratefully received.

Recommendations

If you asked for a recommendation and are pleased with the work from the suggested provider be sure to share your experience in the Recommendations Section!

Wanted: Recommendations for Gas boiler engineer to look at our gas boiler. It’s playing up. Not sure if it needs a service or replacing. Torrox. Thanks in advance Paul. Replies to: ernieno @ hotmail .co .uk (no spaces)

Air Conditioning: I’d like to sing the praises of Mark Rawlins at Esola Air Conditioning. Just over two years after fitting my aircon it developed a problem. Despite being a few months out of warranty, Mark and team arrived promptly, tested the faulty unit over several days and repaired it free of charge! They also replaced the brackets for free on a following visit as they had gone rusty prematurely. Top service and top people. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Thank you Mark and Esola! http://esola.online/

Doctor Appointment Replies:
#1. Hi Valerie. I finally got there with the help of a friend – here goes
http://www.juntadeandalucia.es
(I believe there are other access routes from phones etc)
scroll over heading “Servicios y Tramites”
click on “cita en centro sanitarios”
click on “Datos personales”
enter your medical card number AN——– type in your DOB (ignore the pull down screen)
click “Acceder” type in the I/D no. you have always used ie NIE
then on TIPO scroll down to Tarjeta de Extranjero click on Acceder and up comes appt times and dates.
Good luck, it works. Mave, Competa; mave moore @ y mail .com

#2 & 3. The very easy way is to download the app “SaludResponde” to your phone
You put in your details once and then just go into the app and make an appointment each time. VERY simple.
You can add multiple people as well
You can make appointments for the nurse OR the doctor and others too
Kind regards, Steve Harding, Torre del Mar; steve.jd.harding @ g mail .com
Almost identical submission also sent in by Becky, Canillas de Albaida

#4. Hi, I think I can help. Do you have a smartphone or tablet? Look for an app called “Salud Responde”. In this app you need to enter your card details and can even put a pic of yourself. You can add your family members too. In this app you can make appointments with your doctor or nurse. See a calendar with dates available and you choose the date best for you, then a list of times comes up to choose from. After you confirm the appointment you want there is a button to add it to your calendar.
There is also other information available in the app and you may schedule blood draws at the hospitals, but you need the code from your doctor to enter the blood draw area.  Good luck!! Debi, Puerto de la Torre, debi dob do @ yahoo . com

#5. Hi I am not making an appointment today however I have just looked at the new website and it looks very similar to before, so here goes
1. Click on this link (Link gave me an “insecure connection” error message. -Ed.)
https://ws003.juntadeandalucia.es/pls/intersas/servicios.citaprimaria_iniciotramite
2. Then click on the purple writing “clic salud+”
That then take you to the medical options page. If it is an appointment with a doctor you require click on the right hand side of the page where it ‘s headed “salud” with the heart sign. The first option is the the one you want “datos basicos de salud” that then opens another page with the words “datos personales” on the bottom left hand side.
3. The next page shows “Datos de Administrative” and “Datos de Contacto”
4. Click on “Datos de Administrative” and a sub heading opens where the bottom line reads “Datos Personales” click on this.
5. this is a link to the page where you enter your personal identification number for the centro de salud. There is a small down arrow at one point where you can choose NIE or Passport number.
Datos administrativos: https://www.juntadeandalucia.es/servicioandaluzdesalud/clicsalud/pages/anonimo/personales/datosadministrativos.jsf  Sorry this took so long I was out today. Best of luck. Cathy, cathy . caldwell @talk 21 .com
(Sorry but gif images had to be removed. -Ed.)

CAS Scruffs Dog Show 2018: Just a quick reminder that CAS Scruffs Dog Show 2018 that was postponed last Sunday due to the weather warnings has been rescheduled to Sunday, 21st October, at the same time and in the same place.

Apologies to the people who’ve been inconvenienced by the postponement and we look forward to welcoming those who are still able to support our event despite the date change.

Making doctors appointment: Has anyone managed to navigate the new system for making appointments in the Spanish healthcare system? It’s recently changed and I’m going round in circles. Any easy 1/2/3 instruction would be very welcome! Thanks in advance. Valerie. Torrox; vjfahey0 @ gmail.com (no spaces, the “0” in the address before the “@” is a zero) (Also forward replies to DigameXtra please. -Ed.)

Taxi from Airport: Advice to all who call for a taxi at Malaga Airport. The meter is only half the charge, the driver will refer to a chart stuck to the rear side window which allows him to nearly double the meter display. The chart is on a green background with small print and is legal. Confirm the final fare before. Tony, Nerja (no replies to me please) sjc 2714 @ gmail. com

Anyone know what this is? Found on a fence post, and at first glance, it looked like a piece of dried grass. The top of the post is about 3 cm x 4 cm, so I would guess that makes it around 5cm high. It doesn’t look like any stick insect I’ve seen before, and anyway it only seems to have 4 legs so it can’t be an insect at all can it?

How Accurate Are Online DNA Tests by Scientific American Magazine:
With the plummeting costs of gene sequencing came commercial interests. All of a sudden any company could set up shop, and in exchange for some cash and a vial of saliva, could extract your DNA from the cells in your mouth and sequence your genome. Alongside the behemoths 23andMe and AncestryDNA, dozens of companies have done just that. There are two potential issues arising from the question of their results’ accuracy. Has the sequencing been done well? In critiquing this business, it seems fair to assume the data generated is accurate. But there have been some bizarre cases of failure, such as the company that failed to identify the sample DNA as coming not from a human, but from a dog. One recent analysis found 40 percent of variants associated with specific diseases from “direct to consumer” (DTC) genetic tests were shown to be false positives when the raw data was reanalyzed. Assuming the tests are done accurately, some discrepancies can still arise from differences in the companies’ DNA databases. Almost every DTC genetic test does not sequence your entire genome, but instead looks at positions in your DNA that are known to be of interest.
When it comes to ancestry, DNA is very good at determining close family relations such as siblings or parents, and dozens of stories are emerging that reunite or identify lost close family members (or indeed criminals). For deeper family roots, these tests do not really tell you where your ancestors came from. They say where DNA like yours can be found on Earth today. By inference, we are to assume that significant proportions of our deep family came from those places. But to say that you are 20 percent Irish, 4 percent Native American or 12 percent Scandinavian is fun, trivial and has very little scientific meaning.

Cold readings are open to all and we’d love for you to join us!
What is a “Cold Reading”?
Our “cold” readings, by no means, are considered formal auditions, however it is one way our directors are able to assess whether you might fit the part of a specific character for future readings. The process usually includes a gathering of those who are interested in reading in front of a small audience where directors are present.
The Nerja Players meet on 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month between October and April at the premises of Nerja Bridge Club, Calle Castilla Perez 1, Nerja, 29780 Look for the BLUE entrance door. We are between Salon de Juegos and Nerja Realty. View map here:

Residencia Help/guidance needed: Hi to all knowledgeable Digamites out there. I need help about renewal of Residencia(residency in Spain). I have been a resident(UK Citizen) in Andalusia for just under 5 years. A few days ago a German friend told me i have to renew the “Residencia”(The little green card) after 5 years which i was not aware of (excuse the ignorance). Is this correct? Do i need to apply again and if so, how long does the whole the process take? Is this time for permanent Residency that my friend said it would automatically be? I seem to remember it took a few minutes when i first applied in Torre Del Mar Policia 5 years ago, my question is if i need to renew the little green card, is it as quick and simple as it was back then? Please let me have a precise and step by step guidance to this.
Tom, Caleta de Velez.
All replies to my mail please: isee red 28 at gmail dot com(no spaces) a.s.a.p.
Many thanks in advance.
