Recommendations

Builder: Are you looking for a reliable builder? We can highly recommend Scott Wilson. He worked at our old house in the country side building outdoor terraces, steps, a storage room and an outdoor kitchen. He listened to our suggestions and often came with ideas for improvement. His workers were courteous and friendly. They got on with the job and obviously enjoyed the work. The area was cleaned up every day and tools packed away. They arrived on time and we were always notified by phone of any changes due to rainy weather, etc. So now we sit either on our front terrace and enjoy the view down to the sea or on the tiled side terrace where we often make our lunch outdoors. We are really pleased with the work he did.
Contact details for Scott: Tel. 622 938 440 & 626 054 443

Centro Medico Torrox Costa: Could you please enter this in Digame, great service! Thanks! David.
I highly recommend the Medical Centre at Block 88 Avda. America in Torrox Costa Tel: 952 53 03 57. Open 9am to 2pm and 4pm to 9pm. English – Spanish – German – Dutch etc., spoken, very friendly welcome with excellent Doctors always available. Bring photo I.D. The service is always fast and they have specialist services. Prescriptions for existing conditions cost €20. Every ailment or symptom professionally seen to.
Open Saturdays – Sundays and Bank holidays from 9am to 2pm. Excellent and friendly service. Best clinic along the coast, little waiting and expert attention from the wonderful staff and Doctors with wide and long experience. Especially inexpensive when compared with new consultation prices in Nerja.

Reminder: Microsoft to end support for Windows 7 in 1 year. So it’s time for you to upgrade your OS and say goodbye to Windows 7, as its five years of extended support will end on January 14, 2020. After that date, the tech giant will no longer release free security updates, bug fixes and new functionalities for the operating system that’s still widely used by people, which will leave users who fail to upgrade more susceptible to malware attacks. However, the end of free support doesn’t end Windows 7 support for big business and enterprise customers. As always, Microsoft does make exceptions for certain companies that are willing to pay a lot of money to continue their support.

In March 2017, Microsoft also started blocking new security patches and updates for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users running the latest processors from Intel, AMD, Qualcomm, and others. With this dirty trick MS has denied you the ability to run Win 7 or 8.1 on new computers they are actually compatible with, a clear violation of your right to use your purchased equipment as you see fit.

Renting Information required: Hello, I am renting out a villa in Competa campo and finally, have a user name and password to enter details of guests with their Guardia Civil. I’m not currently living in Spain so trying to sort this remotely before the spring season starts.
What I don’t have is the Web site address to log on to their system. Does anyone have this? Also, can anyone advise if it is only the passport details that are required I.e. number, date of issue and country of issue or if a copy of the passport needs to be scanned in? I have also heard a form for each guest, over the age of 16, has to be signed. Anyone know if this form is printable from their web site and if the Guardia civil need a signed copy? If so do I have to keep a second copy?
Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Many thanks Jan.

Pets

Alfie needs a home: This gorgeous puppy is Alfie, AAR 2073! He was abandoned in the campo and rescued by a kind lady. Alfie is a podenco cross of about 4 months. He is inquisitive, loves socks and playing with other dogs and has the most amazing aquamarine eyes. Walks very well on a lead, barks at cats at first but then seems to lose interest. He started out all scared and timid but after only two days he is a happy, confident chap. Alfie has leisch on his ears, according to the local vet that should not be a problem at all for a long and happy life. Alfie is currently near Comares if anyone wants to come and say hello, he is very very cuddly!
Contact: liz AT ab DOT tl ; or AXarquia Animal Rescue for more information.

 

Wanted: Dog training. We have an extremely affectionate and home loving bodaguero, except when he gets it into his head to go exploring. Once he gets out of our very well fenced garden, he becomes a free spirit and will not respond to our calls or enticements, until he has tired himself out exploring the countryside. We are getting very desperate, as we do not want to lose him, have him get hurt or cause damage, therefore we are appealing for anyone in Digameland who has any ideas about how we can contain him (we’ve already spent a fortune on fencing), or know of anywhere where we can take him for obedience training. We are in Competa campo. Please contact me (Gwen) on 672770607 either phone or Whatsapp or
email me: gjp1949 AT hotmail DOT com

Horse Manure sold by Ellen Amos in Algarrobo and advertised on Digamextra: We have bought manure from Ellen before and have been more than satisfied. This week again we went to buy more manure for this year. We arrived at the time we had agreed and the 10 sacks were waiting for us in the road which made loading convenient. They were well bagged, so there was no spillage nor smell in the car. The quality is very good, I think the term is “well-seasoned”. So we’re expecting a bumper display of roses this year!

Recommendations for a Plumber: Thanks to Sue and Pete for their recommendation of Rob Peel the plumber. I have lived in Spain for many years and he has to be the best plumber I have come across. He came when he said he would i.e at once as I had a fairly urgent job. He knows what he is doing and gave helpful advice as to what to do if a similar problem should arise elsewhere. He was very reasonable and I endorse all that Sue and Peter said in their recommendation in Digamextra on January 14. Hazel Bryant

The Diputación de Málaga provincial government has awarded a number of town halls in the Axarquía funds to roll out a number of projects:
-Cómpeta town hall has been awarded 250,000 euros to set up an olive oil museum. The town’s old olive oil factory has been earmarked for the museum which will show the entire process from the olives arriving at a mill, to the final product being bottled. There will also be space for exhibitions and cultural activities.
A further 200,000 euros has gone to Moclinejo for an Axarquía Muscatel raisin research centre, which the council has said will attract tourists to the village as well as being of significant interest to the agro-food industry in the local area.
-Other funds have gone to the villages of Arenas and Benamargosa to improve their respective football pitches and the older people’s day centre in Árchez is set to be refurbished.
-Macharaviaya town hall has received 38,480 euros to convert two warehouses and replace the town hall roof.

Cockfighting Busted in Murcia: Spanish police said Monday they had arrested 182 people who took part in a “national” cockfighting competition, an ancient sport that continues in some regions despite being banned. Officers seized around €300,000 ($344,000) during Saturday’s raid in the southern town of Sangonera La Verde in Murcia, police said in a statement.
Cockfighting is banned in Spain except in the regions of Andalusia and the Canary Islands, where it is allowed only in licensed circumstances after being considered a valuable cultural tradition dating back more than 500 years. Full Article: https://www.thelocal.es/20190115/spanish-police-arrest-182-people-at-illegal-cockfight

Recommendations

Ransomware: Thank you for the tip about the ransom ware. Done. Regards, Keith/Valez

Recommendation Wanted: Can anyone recommend a salon doing a good pedicure, by that I mean one that not only makes your toe nails pretty but deals with hard skin or corns etc. I have used the same salon in Torrox Costa for many years where I got the benefits of chiropody but also pretty painted toe nails but she has now closed her salon. I am in Torrox campo but prepared to travel Nerja to Torre Del Mar but obviously would prefer Torrox area. This sounds like an indulgence but with arthritic hips it is a task impossible to do for ones self without great pain and discomfort.
Email: lilian.maddison AT btopenworld DOT com

Child Friendly Swimming Pool: We are soon having a visit from young grandchildren, ages 3 and 5. Obviously our swimming pool will be far too cold for them (or indeed us) to use so we are looking for an indoor pool in the Velez Malaga/Torre del Mar area suitable for the little darlings. We live near lake Viñuela and are aware that there are pools in the area but we don’t know where they are or their suitability for toddlers.
We would be grateful if anyone who has any information that could help us would be kind enough to share their knowledge with us. Thanks in anticipation, Anne and Peter

Tech Tip from DoctorLaptop: If you have Cybereason RansomFree malware blocker installed on your computer you should uninstall it, or buy the premium version if you like it. This free version has been discontinued. Another great, free product goes commercial. For a free alternative you can replace it with BitDefender Free Ransomware Protection or Kaspersky Free Anti-Ransomware Tool for Business. If you don’t do regular data backups you should certainly use an anti ransomware program. The 5 mins it takes to install is well worth the small effort if it blocks your data from being encrypted and ransomed back to you for a huge sum. Here are links! https://www.kaspersky.com/anti-ransomware-tool

Chico has a wonderful goofy nature. Good with dogs and other animals. He is house trained and travels well in the car. Loves going for long walks but very settled in the house. An absolute gem of a dog.
An adoption fee will apply which helps cover the costs of castration, vaccines, chip and passport.

New Year, Same Old Scams: Reports of internet and phone scams are on the rise. The 3 top scams currently being reported are:
-Fake Court Appointment Email. Reports suggest you don’t even need to open an attachment to activate the malware, simply opening the email is sufficient to get infected. And yes, this is technically possible and has been documented.
-Account Closure Announcement. Sent email pretends to be from your account provider. You are instructed to click a link to prevent the account closure, which actually does nothing besides infect your computer.
-Call from Microsoft Support. This one is almost 20yrs old but people still fall for it. Someone claiming to be from Microsoft calls to inform you problems have been detected in your computer system and you must follow some instructions to fix it, often a payment is also requested. Fact: Microsoft will never call you unless you call them first and request a callback.
The easiest way to spot email scams is to check the sender’s email address. If it is different from the service they pretend to represent it is fake. Example: a Gmail warning sent from a hotmail.com address. Also check the header of the email to see the recipient’s list it was sent to. If there are multiple addresses it was sent to, or if it says ” undisclosed recipients”, it is fake. -Naythan

-Wednesday: Live Music with Johnny Unplugged. A lively night of tunes with Johnny and friends starting at 9pm. Bring your dancing shoes and rock the night away!
-Thursday: Drink, Feck (American readers don’t freak out, feck is Old Scottish slang for “value”, “effect” or “quantity”, not a mis-spelled naughty word.)

We’re also thinking of having a Texas Hold’em Poker Night. If anyone is interested let us know, drop us a line or call into the bar.
