It was amazing! This is a very simple place, but the owner is a very welcoming woman. The food is very good!

Facebook User Alert from DoctorLaptop!
-Now Facebook is allowing anyone to look you up using your security phone number (or the email address you registered with)! Anyone else you call on that phone has your number and can FB search it to discover more about you! FB can also be searched for the owner of a given email.
Last year it came to light that Facebook was using the Two Factor Authentication (2FA) phone numbers people submitted to the company, solely so they could protect their accounts with 2FA, for targeted advertising. Now Facebook is allowing anyone to look up a user by their phone number or email. Expect similar behavior from the rest of the internet services that use 2FA. Adding insult to injury Facebook won’t let users opt out of this privacy violation they never opted in to. The most you can do is limit who can look you up, from the default “Everyone” to “Friends,” but you can’t hide it entirely.
If users want to try to claw back some of their privacy from Facebook’s latest data grab, go into the Settings of your Facebook account, click Privacy, then click “How People Find and Contact You.” Then click “Who can look you up using the phone number you provided?” and change the dropdown box from “Everyone” to “Friends.”

O’Learys Irish Bar: ST. PATRICKS DAY
It’s not long now until March 17th which is Ireland’s national holiday and in some ways, the world’s holiday! It’s one of our favourite days of the year and last year was absolutely fantastic fun! This year, we’re going even bigger! We have some proper Irish music all afternoon with our favourite resident Paddy, Paul Hayes LIVE FROM 1300HRS! Paul can literally sing anything but we’re sure he’s gonna break out all his proper Irish songs for this one!
As if that wasn’t enough we have even more live music later that night! From 2100hrs we have yet another new artist!
Vo Fletcher will be live doing an incredible mix of folk and blues. This man is super talented!
We’ll also have plenty food and drink surprises on the day so basically, we’ve got St. Patrick’s day on the beach sorted again this year! FB-Link

Seeking Villa Ambassadors: If you have a large social network of friends/family/former co/workers (from your life before moving to Spain) this might be an interesting opportunity for you. There is no cost involved to you at all. It is extremely part time but could yield some nice periodic income. I’ll be having an open house March 9th in La Herradura so that you can see the villa and have a better idea what I’m hoping to accomplish. I would encourage you to email me first so that I can send along some initial details that I believe you’ll find most helpful. I think you’ll be surprised by what I’m offering as it’s not like anything I’ve ever seen before. I’m trying to think creatively about this opportunity and hope you’ll consider joining me.
I look forward to meeting each of you on the 9th. I would be happy to extend this opportunity to a maximum of 10 people as Ambassadors so that each of you will have the opportunity that this provides. Michelle/La Herradura

DoctorLaptop’s Windows 10 Alert- WIN 10 v1904 Creator’s Update Arrives Next Month:
Most user problems with Windows 10 are update related. Win 10 updates cannot be ignored without inviting trouble. You cannot turn them off, and if not kept current, when they do get downloaded and installed, they will often get installed out of order, leading to system crashes. Besides these weekly updates Win 10 does a twice a year major update known as the Creator’s Updates (yr/month designated “Versions”- v1703, v1709, v1803, v1809). It is very important to have all your weekly updates installed before you allow the Creator’s Update to proceed. Missing prerequisite updates can cause Creator Updates to fail. If that failure happens after the install gets past the 50% complete mark all restore points and rollbacks will have been deleted, requiring a complete reinstall to fix! Have you made a System Image backup to reinstall from? Probably not, most don’t. Creator Updates are huge, 5+Gb and take up to 2hrs to install after the download.
Now here is the problem:
-Many users are still on v1803, considered active but nearly out of service. Falling behind happens if you always shut down your comp when not in use; Win Updater looks for times the comp is on but not in use for an extended period in which to do Updates. I recommend leaving Win 10 comps on overnight once every 2 weeks, with no programs running, if you always shut down when not using it. Also do this on any WIN 10 comps you may have in storage if you expect them to run well when needed. Windows 10 does not like to be ignored!
-v1809 is the current “version” most users should be at by now
-v1904 is due out NEXT MONTH!
You will NOT be able to jump directly from v1803 to v1904 without using a special tool (see Step 5)
What to do: Check your Win 10 version.
1. Open up the Run command window with the Win + R key combo
2. Type in winver into the run command text box and hit OK
3. Your Version of Win 10 will be displayed
4. If you are stuck on v1803 you may have missing prerequisites or system corruption, continue to Step 5 to do a combo repair/update to v1809. If you are on v1809 then you are up to date.
5. Visit this site and follow the step by step procedure, with photos of every step and a clickable link to download the tool required. It’s actually very simple and quick to run the download tool, but expect the subsequent installation process to take several hours on a fast connection, all day on a very slow connection.
https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/81031-update-latest-version-windows-10-using-update-assistant.html
BOTTOM LINE: If you rely on your computer for important daily activities, and you are running v1803, you still have time, but you need to take action to avoid serious issues this Summer.
Remember: A DoctorLaptop “Clean & TuneUp” includes updating system to fully current. If you are overdue for your annual Maintenance Servicing, and you are still on v1803, then all the more reason to schedule your next service now.
DoctorLaptop’s Computer Services, Torrox Costa. All work by appointment. Most jobs completed overnight.
Make appts by phone on 675 993 069, no calls answered before 11am, missed calls returned asap.

Unfortunately due to no fault of his own the new home has not been able to fulfill their promise. He is castrated and free from all disease.
Soul is currently in private kennels as all foster placements are full. If you think you can offer Soul a home or would like more information please call 722766109 or email Carole carichardweale AT gmail DOT com

Didgeridoo Sessions: I sincerely invite you to individual or group one hour didgeridoo sessions.
Didgeridoo or Yidaki, is a traditional brass instrument. Aboriginal believe that the sound of this “windy instrument” created the world and everything in it. Deep vibrations connect us with the power of the Earth. This original, unique sound by tuning to the Earth and to the human body, clears with vibrations that open our chakras. In this way, Yidaki moves us into Unknown, into the dreaming state, that is why Aborigines gave it a nickname: “dreaming a pipe”.
Antique vibrations that are carried by didgeridoo often help us to enter into a deep state of relaxation and trance. These subtle states of consciousness, which we do not experience in every day life, support our ability to listen to our self, body and spirit. We then have the opportunity to discover our original desires, passion, motivation and create, thriving and happy life. It is there, in these deep meditations, that our body releases the vigorous energies, and the vibrations of Yidaki deepen it, allowing us to achieve harmony and balance, which we do not always have access to in daily life.
Investment: Individual – 50 Euros
Groups: 2 persons – 80 Euros, 3-5 persons – 120 Euros,  6-8 persons – 160 Euros
Sign up: meduz10@hotmail.com or you can call me or send me a message via mobile: (0034) 642 56 15 86
Place: You choose the place for the session. It can be your home, garden or a place in the nature where you feel comfortable. There is also a possibility to meet at my place.
You can prepare an intention that you wanna work with or we can do one of the following:
-chakra balancing and cleaning;
-partner alignment (for couples)
-balance the masculine and feminine inside
Location: Competa and Malaga province
Sincerely, Lucas

Pets

PET OWNERS have been warned to keep an eye out for processionary caterpillars after sightings on the Costa del Sol. A local Fuengirola information page has reported on Facebook the sighting of the dangerous caterpillars next to the river between Fuengirola and Los Boliches.
Dogs are particularly susceptible as they will pick up the hairs on their paws and then lick them as they start to itch. This then leads to the hairs being transferred on to the animal’s tongue and can result in itching, swelling, vomiting and even death.
