Easter Holiday CHAOS: ALL Spanish airports may face indefinite strike from April 20. Holidaymakers are facing flight chaos because of a massive strike by 60,000 ground handling staff set to go ahead over the holiday period. Flight industry unions in Spain say they are still willing to negotiate over pay and conditions but if no agreement is reached, they are calling for a walkout from Easter Saturday, April 20th. The strike would affect all Spanish airports, the unions have confirmed.

New killer mould, Candida Auris, spreads worldwide: Over the last five years, it has hit a neonatal unit in Venezuela, swept through a hospital in Spain (Valencia), forced a prestigious British medical center to shut down its intensive care unit, and taken root in India, Pakistan and South Africa. It kills over 40% of those infected! Source documents shown in the video are the official Center for Disease Control site and the NY Times, so it’s probably accurate.

Buyers Info: I strongly suggest you do not purchase anything from a party that will not provide you their phone number. I suggest asking them to ring your phone while you are meeting, then you have the number and know the number is correct. Meeting a person to make a deal in a neutral location may seem reasonable, but if you don’t know where they live, and you don’t have their phone number, you may have no recourse if the item proves defective. LET THE BUYER BEWARE!

DELAYED: Flamenco Series in Malagalingo delayed to the month of May. Our teacher Alicia Rojo will be very busy this April with performances, including her performance on Saturday the 13th at the Teatro de Torrox, of which we attach a poster.

Until then, if you like what you see consider taking the next step with Malagalingo classes: Every Wednesday and Friday we have single conversation lessons for €5 in a relaxed and fun atmosphere, and on our outdoor terrace when the weather is nice, from 10:00 to 11:00 for the initial level and 11:00 to 12:00 for intermediate level.

Workshop Dot Painting on Rocks: Hello everyone, Wednesday morning 10th of April I’m organising a workshop ‘Dot Painting On Rocks’ at my place (close to Velez-Malaga).
During this workshop I’ll learn you:
* what you need to paint beautiful dots,
* how to mix your paint AND
* how to paint beautiful hypnotising mandala’s on rocks
At the end of the workshop you’ll go home with your first beautiful dotted rocks and a starters kit to continue your new hobby at home.
When: Wednesday 10th of April 10:00 – 13:30
Where: My place on top of a hill in between Velez-Malaga & Lake Vinuela
(will send you the location by whatsapp)
Sign up: by sending me an email to milenaphotos6 AT gmail DOT com
I’ll provide you with all the materials (rocks, professional paint, tools to use), coffee, tea & snacks.
A minimum of 5 people is required (maximum 8 people)
WARNING: it’s addictive!
Because it’s the first time I’m offering this workshop I offer it at the very special price of 25 euros per person (to be paid in cash upon arrival).
Normally these kind of workshops are offered for 50 euros.
Alright, I’m off to find some rocks for you!

He will have copies of the recently published book ‘Driven by Conflict’, a collection of stories about people involved in conflicts of many and various kinds, from the domestic to the international. Some of the stories are bleak, as stories of war and hostilities often are, whilst others are much lighter and even of a humorous nature. Many of them are romances and love stories. The conflicts and wars which are behind the stories range in time from 1000 BC up until the present day. They take place mainly in Europe and the Middle East and the majority are events that involve Great Britain, Spain and Israel, and the hostilities that they were involved in.
All his other books will also be available, including books of short stories of crime and mystery, some set in the Axarquía. Some of these have been translated into Spanish and German.

DigameXtra on Facebook Update: OK, so I started from scratch, set up a new email, signed up for a new FB account, set it up and proceeded to add a new DigameXtra page. I was almost done when up pops a message saying there was suspicious activity on my account and I must do an identity confirmation, demanding my mobile number. I was still in my very first session in a brand new account, how is that possible! The same issue blocking me from my old FB account! The codes never reach my mobile! So, for now I am giving up on Facebook.

Recommendations

Gas bottles: Someone called Martin has advertised in today’s digamextra the sale of two gas bottles. He is also suggesting that they could be used for a hobby craft by making them into a letter box or barbecue. Unless you know exactly what you are doing, cutting into a gas bottle could easily cause an explosion. Very dangerous suggestion.
Kind regards, Phil/Alhama de Granada; mcaleerpj AT aol DOT com (Unfortunately this idea of modifying gas bottles was promoted on a BBC2’s The House That £100k Built television program episode and has gained popularity despite being potentially dangerous as well as illegal in many areas. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2460037/BBC-DIY-programme-shows-renovator-cutting-gas-canister-light-fitting.html .-Ed.)

Pets

SOS Animals to Close: Inland dog charity, SOS Animals, is to close in June and is urgently appealing for people who can offer a loving home to any of its dogs. SOS (Spay Our Strays) was founded on the Costa del Sol in 1997 and has been run by a small team of dedicated volunteers and supported by its sister charity, SOS Sweden, and Costa Canine Rescue UK.
The land where the Coín-based refuge is situated was sold after the owners returned to the UK and volunteers at the charity have been unable to find suitable, alternative accommodation for both the dogs and for the volunteers who help care for them. The refuge centre, which has rehomed thousands of dogs over the last 22 years, has announced that it can no longer accept dogs and is focusing all its energies on rehoming the animals in its care.

Announcements

DigameXtra on Facebook On Hold: Due to again being locked out of my FB accounts  for the umpteenth time I cannot continue to post daily DigameXtra issues on FB. I am working on it but FB support is almost useless, their identity confirmation won’t send my mobile the reset code, I don’t know anyone they show me photos of, I can’t send them a scan of my utility bill as it’s included in my rent, and evidently I don’t know my own birthday! To be honest I am ready to quit FB all together. I will update in a few days. -Ed.
