Casa Magel B&B, November special: Complimentary bubbly on arrival. 2 nights B&B choice of continental or English breakfast. 1 night 3-course meal with wine for 2 sharing a double room. 100€. Maybe possible to get tickets for Caminito Del Rey El Chorro if you book early. This is a good time to visit the wolf park 15 mins away as the wolves are more visible as the weather cools and they do full moon howling at night. Pop into Convento Magdalena next door and soak up the peaceful atmosphere with a nice glass of wine. Many nice walks all around, our little Roman town is a 15-minute walk away, with a very nice museum, good tapas bars. So much to do and see and then relax by the pool while our chef cooks you a delicious meal. We have a limited honesty bar or bring your own drinks. Full kitchen facilities for guest use. Terrace & BBQ. Pretty Gardens, lovely pool, yummy food, great hosts, fantastic views. Who could ask for anything more for 100€ for 2?

Correction:  The Nerja Players: November 20th – The Rude Mechanicals – You can now reserve your tickets online. reserve your tickets online — The Bard to be a bundle of laughs, but director, Joan Tarver, promises a hilarious experience with her adaptation of scenes from Shakespeare’s best-loved comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. A victorious Theseus is about to marry Hippolyta, defeated Queen of the Amazons. Feisty fairies bicker and plot and cause no end of trouble for the Rude Mechanicals – this band of singularly untalented amateurs – as they rehearse a play they hope to perform to celebrate the forth coming nuptials. Will rival factions reconcile their differences? Can Bottom the Weaver succeed in his bid for stardom? Come and enjoy the fun and frolics.

Information on damage to our car: Car badly dented Competa Wednesday afternoon. Our newly acquired light blue Ford C-Max was badly dented in the left rear wing while parked on the upper level of the town car park in Competa between 1 pm and 4 pm during the afternoon of Wednesday November 7th. See photo. From the amount of dirt that fell out of the chassis under the car and the size of the dent, the car was hit with some force, probably by an SUV given the location of the damage. It cannot have escaped the notice of anybody involved. Did you see this incident? Can you help us with the details of the vehicle (or sledgehammer) involved? Does the perpetrator have the common decency to come forward? Any help very gratefully received. Lyn, Canillas de Albaida Lyn.Harrison @ insightwind.com

UK address: Hello Readers. I am a UK national with an existing modest portfolio of shares and currently living in Germany. To manage this fund I need to show a valid UK address without having to own a property in the UK. There must be many others in this situation and I would like to have suggestions or advice on how to resolve this dilemma.
These answers are not useful.
* Use the address of a relation.
* Rent a room with a Tenancy Agreement.
*A Ltd Co with a postal address.
* Purchase a part-share of a uk property. (then there will be no funds to manage)!!
I will be grateful for answers asap and direct to sjc2714@gmail.com. The reader with the winning answer will have a lunch on me, Tony Pulle

Honda CRV SOLD: Hello, Thanks to digamextra the car has been sold. No need to run the ad again. Best regards, Michel

Dog dumping: A note to the irresponsible and thoughtless person(s) who (Wednesday morning), took it upon themselves to abandon a young dog by placing it within the fully fenced confines of my finca without notice or permission…
If somehow, you had the confounded notion that you were doing good by ‘rehoming’ the poor creature in this manner, you were in a sense correct, as the dog has now found his ‘forever” home in heaven, where the Almighty always had room for such unfortunate and misersble castoffs.
Should I ever see you, yourself, round about the area again, I shall be happy to notify whatever authorities necessary to deal lawfully with you as well.
Ellen Leonie Koolen, ellen.amos @ hotmail. com

Dog Attack: I want to warn people walking their dogs around the Penoncillo apartments Torrox Costa at night. Last night 6/11/2018 at 21.15 hours my wife was walking our dog and she (the dog ) was attacked by another dog that came out of nowhere, she got 3 puncture wounds that bled. My wife was pulled over by our dog trying to escape the attack,various people helped my wife and dog,one person actually said to my wife that she knew the dog and don’t walk near where it lives. This is just a warning to dog walkers. We are going to vets and asking them to inform Police and try and get this owner to take responsibility of their dog. Thank you Ian Walker .
If you need anymore info I will answer any questions.

Recommendations Wanted for Quality Paint:  We live in Torrox campo and are seeking good quality white matt emulsion. In the UK we always used Dulux but have yet to find a good quality paint here. If you have an opinion about what is a good white matt emulsion and can recommend a brand please let me know. Thanks. Nigel
littlenige at mail dot com

Recommendation: Wayne’s Drains. Just wanted to say how pleased we were with Wayne’s Drains who came to our aid and swiftly sorted us out when we had an emergency drain problem (roots were found completely blocking the pipe!). They located and accessed the drain under the bathroom floor and installed a new inspection cover. They did a professional job, leaving it clean and tidy afterwards.

Recommendations

Tail dog show: Thank you to the organisers of the Tail Dog Show held on Sunday on Penoncillo Beach. . I have been every year since coming to Torrox and it gets better every year. It is just thoroughly good natured fun with lots of people enjoying their dogs and the many stalls of interest. I hope it did well for you this year, it certainly deserves to do so. Well done. Keep up the good work. Anthea. Torrox Pueblo Email antheawater1@gmail.com

Car Valet: I would also like to recommend Warren James who valeted our extremely hairy car, before the arrival of 2 friends, one of whom has pet allergies. He definitely went the extra mile, shampooing the upholstery 3 times and taking an extra hour to do so, for no extra charge. Our friends have now been and gone. Three days of being ferried around including from Malaga to Competa and back, without a single sneeze or watery eye. A job really well done, Warren! Many thanks, Gwen, Competa. gjp 1949 at Hotmail dot com

Driving in Spain: I subscribe to a useful Driving in Spain newsletter, at www N332.es. There are lots of useful tips about Spanish rules and regulations, but lately, an article about obtaining an ECO sticker to show your car will comply with emission rules when driving into large cities. If you do not have the sticker, you may have to pay an entry fee.

Warren Phillips, Car valeting/cleaning: Warren came highly recommended on Dígame but he is even more brilliant than we expected. Warren’s attention to detail is remarkable. He said that he would restore the car to showroom condition and he returned a “new” six-year old car to us, even having managed to remove the ‘dinks’ from the bonnet caused by a hailstorm. Our other 15 year old runaround now also looks absolutely pristine both inside and out. Warren provides a full collection and return service and the whole package represents good value for money with an efficient, friendly service. Excellent.

Christmas markets: Hello to all the Christmas market organisers out there. Myself and many of my market trader colleagues would like to know the dates and venues of your planned Christmas fayres this festive season. There are a few of us interested in hosting stalls at these events and hope to arrange our calendars, as many Christmas fayres are on the same dates, It’s important to know in advance, rather than on the day before the event, as usually happens If you reply to me direct, I will pass on your info, to all interested parties Of course you may wish to tell all on Digamextra, to attract a wider audience. Kind regards Sam Sloan 625233801 Samsloannerja@hotmail.com www.chocolatesbysamsloan.com

DoctorLaptop’s November Special: New Computer Setups €30 (25% off). Setting up a brand new Windows 10 computer can be challenging if you’ve never done it before. Dozens of choices to be made using terms you may not know, or asking about functions you didn’t even know exist. Right away Cortana, the digital virtual assistant, starts asking you questions and expects you to talk to her! Unless you know what you’re doing it may be better to let me setup and optimize your new computer, in your language, with the keyboard your prefer, and with the programs you need. It is best if you bring it to me without ever starting it. Once started up the 1st time the setup process begins and it MUST be completed, interrupting the initial setup risks damaging the system, possibly requiring a complete reinstall of Windows. There are some choices made in the setup that are difficult to change after the setup is finished. Not to mention that most new comps require a ton of Windows Updates, and we all know how dodgy installing large batches of Windows 10 updates can be! Save yourself the frustration and patience draining hassle, leave it to me.
Also: Microsoft Office 2019 Pro Plus is now available.
Computer repairs, installs, upgrades, maintenance and websites. Nokia trained hard disk service & data recovery expert. I repair what others can only replace!

The Torrox Spanish History Group: The Torrox Spanish History group will not be meeting on the 6th at our usual meeting place in the El Parquesol restaurant, instead we are going on a coach trip to the Medina Azahara which lies just outside of Cordoba. The Medina was built by Abd-ar-Rahman III c912-961, the first Umayyad Caliph of Cordoba. The city includes ceremonial reception halls, mosque, administrative and government offices, gardens and workshops as well as baths.
In December we will be meeting on the 4th and Keith (Rockall) will give his final talk on the Romans and I will give an overview of my talk on Federica Garthia Lorca. I will go into more detail at a later date. This is with a view to organising a coach trip to where Lorca was born; where he grew up and where he was shot as well as where he was supposed to be buried although recent excavations of the site have not revealed any trace of Lorca. If there is time we will also visit the Federico Garvia Lorca Park, situated in the municipality of Alfacar where it is believed he was assassinated in 1936.
The Torrox Spanish History Group meets every first Tuesday of the month at El Parquesol in El Morche. If you would like to join a friendly and informative history group and enjoy the company of like minded people then contact me on patricianerja at hotmail.com.
Please replace the at with @.

Mobility Aids: It was good to see the item in yesterday’s Digame about the Mobility Aids. I went to this shop a couple of months ago to see what assistance I could get to help me move around more easily. The service was excellent! Perfect English speaking person who couldn’t have been more helpful and sympathetic. I can now get out & about easily again. If you see a woman careening around El Ingenio in a small, black, motorised chair – say Hello… It will be me! Jane Kirk

Editor Suggests: Computer Artificial Intellegence (AI) Lie Detectors Coming to EU Travel Hubs! A number of border control checkpoints in the European Union are about to get increasingly—and unsettlingly—futuristic. In Hungary, Latvia, and Greece, travelers will be given an automated lie-detection test—by an animated AI border agent. The virtual border control agent will ask travelers questions after they’ve passed through the checkpoint. Questions include, “What’s in your suitcase?” and “If you open the suitcase and show me what is inside, will it confirm that your answers were true?” according to New Scientist. The system reportedly records travelers’ faces using AI to analyze 38 micro-gestures, scoring each response. The virtual agent is reportedly customized according to the traveler’s gender, ethnicity, and language. For travelers who pass the test, they will receive a QR code that lets them through the border. If they fail the virtual agent will reportedly get more serious, and if the AI remains suspicious the traveler will be handed off to a human agent.

Bad News For iPhone and SmartWatch Fans:
-Hacked! It’s only been a day since Apple released iOS 12.1 and an iPhone enthusiast in Spain has managed to find a passcode bypass hack, once again, that could allow anyone to see all contacts’ private information on a locked iPhone. So simple it’s scary considering how Apple claims to be very secure! Selling easily hacked €1000 mobiles won’t impress the shareholders. Full article: https://thehackernews.com/2018/10/iphone-ios-passcode-bypass.html
-Bricked! Apple has pulled an update for its smartwatches after many owners complained the software had caused their devices to stop working. The problem appears to have baffled Apple’s repair staff, and there’s no way at present for owners to restore the products themselves. They have been told they need to send in the devices for a fix. Since Apple Repair has no fix for the smartwatches yet these are probably being replaced, not repaired.
Apple said it intended to release a revised update soon. Those affected reported that their watches had become stuck in a state showing the Apple logo – but nothing else – on their screens. Full article: https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-46045414

How’s the Curry? : An English couple in Competa where I live asked me about the vegan or all plant-based restaurant in Archez, Meson Mudejar. As a vegan, I ate there in July. But this couple wanted to specifically know about the venue’s Friday Curry Nights at 15€ for a three course meal. I did not know as these are a new thing. Has anyone experienced Curry Night there? If so, please contact morphology654 @ protonmail. com (closes spaces) Thanks. Steve.
