For Sale: 100% Organic Compost. Fall is a great time to use compost when putting in new plantings for spring blooms, topping up existing gardens and mulching around trees and bushes for overwintering.
Organic Compost helps feed plants with micro-nutrients in a form that is slow in release and most natural for plants to uptake. The humus (fibre) content provides roots with an environment that is easier to grow in by creating a lighter soil which maintains more moisture with better drainage. Micro-organisms, which are beneficial to plants, are attracted to these areas and work to the added health of a garden.
This compost is a careful and through blend of horse manure, chicken manure and natural organic matter, with absolutely no chemical additives such as herbicides, pesticides or other toxic waste. All the components are completely broken down through decomposition to create a clean, non odorous, friable mix that it completely safe to use around home, garden and lawn.
Comes in clean, sturdy sacks of 20L of volume. 6,50€ per sack.

Recommendations

Petsitting: Our 13 year old dog has just returned from 2 weeks with Petsitters Silvia and Mario in El Morche and is one happy pooch. He lived with them as a family dog in their lovely home, and had plenty of exercise, love and attention. Silvia sent regular photos, videos and Watsapp messages so we could see for ourselves how he was enjoying it. We will definitely use them again and would highly recommend their services. They can be contacted on

Lost Friend: Hi Naythan, Would you ask your readers if they know a lady who moved to Spain from Wales, some 20yrs ago? Her name is Ros Griffiths and she’s the most lovely lady, who set up her hairdressing business somewhere ‘up in the hills’ of your friendly part of Spain above Malaga. I have been unfortunate in losing contact with Ros and wondered if any of the digamextra readers know her?
Many thanks for your help in finding a long lost friend.
With kind regards, Ruth Richards, Welshpool, Powys Wales

Cyclists rescue gigantic buck by its horns: When a cycling club in Granada, Spain, passed by a deer in desperate need of help, the brave bikers stepped right in to assist the drowning animal. The area had been hit by deadly flash flooding earlier in the month, and somehow the deer had gotten caught in one of the leftover puddles. The group was able to use a rope tied around the buck’s antlers to pull up the frightened buck far enough for it to get its hooves on the ground. It then bolted into the forest. None of the bikers was injured.

 

Polish ham from Travelez?: Consumer association Facua has filed a complaint against a international food distributor saying it is passing off Polish grown and produced ham as Spanish gourmet jamon.
It says that Comapa is selling the polish imposter product under the brand Trevedul, seeking to relate it to the town of Trevelez in Granada, which is famous for its hams that sell at a high premium.
The brand is widely distributed in Malaga province supermarkets.
Facua had denounced Comapa last March for selling bootleg hams, also from Poland, under the brand name Jamones Sierra Alpujarra, incorrectly identifying this product as originating in the Granada region. Full article: https://www.euroweeklynews.com/2019/09/29/fake-hams-for-sale-in-spain/

 

DoctorLaptop’s Computer News: Microsoft Finally Admits The Existence of Fileless Malware Hijacking Windows Computers. I have been warning clients about this malware for 2 years but Microsoft is only now addressing the problem.
The malware has been designed to turn infected Windows computers into proxies, which according to Microsoft, can then be used by attackers as a relay to hide illegal on-line activities; meanwhile Cisco Talos Security believes the proxies are used for click-fraud to generate revenue (fake clicks) for attackers who make false click count claims to advertising firms who pay for the artificially inflated totals.
The malware typically targets individual users (97% of detections), yet the Microsoft proposed solution is only available to their business clients (3% of detections). Microsoft logic confounds again! Common consumer level, signature based antivirus programs do not detect this kind of infection, even those with Passive heuristics analysis. There are specialized tools with advanced Active heuristics available to technicians to detect and remove this malware. These tools take a very long time to do their job as they must first observe the operating system running for a while to create a legit activity “baseline”, after which it can detect improper activity in action by spotting anomalous and malicious behaviors, such as the execution of scripts and tools. (Read more about heuristics at http://support.eset.com/kb127/). If you believe you have something in your computer accessing the internet other than your personal activity this malware is a possibility.

Dating Site Scam- FTC Lawsuit Says Match.com Lured Subscribers With Fake Love Messages: Match.com “used fake love interest advertisements to trick hundreds of thousands of consumers into purchasing paid subscriptions.” The FTC sued Match Group, which owns Match.com, Tinder, OKCupid, PlentyOfFish, and other dating sites. According to an FTC statement, up to 30 percent of the users who register for Match.com every day are there to perpetrate scams. These include “romance scams, phishing schemes, fraudulent advertising, and extortion scams.”
If indeed this goes to trial, it will be interesting to see how it plays out, but it will probably be settled out of court and Match.com will promise to clean up it’s act. In the meanwhile, if you have a free Match.com profile and you get a message suggesting that you subscribe because someone is interested in you–as with all online services–think carefully before you punch in that credit card number.

Listeria Outbreak Justice: Owners of the food company responsible for Spain’s worst ever listeriosis outbreak arrested for manslaughter. Investigators say the three men knew that their products had tested positive for listeria but did nothing to get rid of the bacteria.
Since August, the outbreak has killed three people, caused seven miscarriages, and infected more than 200 people. The source of the bacterial infection was traced to a Seville-based company called Magrudis, which sold a contaminated pork loin product called carne mechada under the brand name La Mechá.

Spain will remove rights for British residents post-Brexit if the UK does not reciprocate: Spain is demanding reciprocity from the United Kingdom in one of the most sensitive aspects of Brexit: treatment of its migrants. The Spanish government has urgently passed legislation in order to protect the rights of the 365,967 Britons who are officially resident in the country, but has yet to see similar mechanisms put in place in the United Kingdom for the Spaniards who have made that country their home. The caretaker foreign minister, Josep Borrell, has already conveyed this concern to the British government of Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and has warned that, if there is no equivalent move from the UK as the country leaves the European Union, the Spanish framework for British residents will decline.
The UK’s current Brexit minister, Steve Barclay, met last week in Madrid with Spain’s caretaker Foreign Minister Josep Borrell. The rights of citizens, one of the most symbolic elements of Brexit, were a key part of the debate. Barclay expressed his gratitude for the law that had been approved by Spain, which is the country of choice for the majority of Britons who opt to live in the EU. But Borrell warned the minister that these advantageous conditions will only be maintained if they are reciprocal, a standpoint about which the British delegation requested clarifications.
“We have told them that our royal decree will ensure that everything remains the same in the case of a no-deal Brexit,” said Luis Marco Aguiriano, Spain’s secretary of state for the EU, and who took part in the meeting with the British minister last Thursday. Speaking to EL PAÍS via telephone, he added: “But for that, reciprocity is necessary. And reciprocity cannot be guaranteed in half-measures – it is either there, or it isn’t.”

Recommendations

Recommendation for SPW Construction Services:
On 21st August, we read a recommendation for SPW Construction Services,
submitted by Jenny of Torrox.
As we required similar work to that carried out for Jenny, plus rejas & metal doors painted, we phoned Scott, who came , saw the work & quoted for it. We were happy with the price so agreed for him to do the work. However, after a couple of days, seeing how the team worked, the preparation of the work, the quality of the materials used & the results, we asked him for a quote to sort out the balustrades surrounding the terrace. Again the quote was more that acceptable They are completed & look ” fab “. Scott then quoted to paint 5metal doors, 2 exterior, 3 within the downstairs terrace. The additional work was requested based on the quality of work we had seen, which speaks for itself.
We would not hesitate to use SPW Construction Services again or to recommend
this efficient team to anybody.
The day SPW completed the work & before Scott left us, he said to us ( an elderly
couple living in the campo) ” If you are in trouble or need help- not building work – but anything, do not hesitate to call us. We live 5-6 minutes away from you & would come to your assistance.
This speaks multitude, as far as I am concerned, as to the nature of Scott.
A big thank you to Scott , his 2 assistants, but also to Jenny of Torrox, for posting her recommendation

Old Scam Returns: Beware of the fake water, gas, power and other inspectors who show up unannounced and request entry to your home. Hidralia, the company that manages the supply network in Estepona is alerting townspeople and residents further afield on the Costa del Sol, saying its workers do not enter people’s homes, either to repair leaks or make inspections.
However, it has had reports of people wearing similar clothing approaching householders. People should not let ‘water inspectors’, into their homes and should notify police, the statement concluded.

The house has been outside and although the wood is not super strong it has stood up well in the wind and rain. It probably would be good to paint it if it is to stay outside. It can be dismantled with a screw driver. Mob. Kevin/Competa 634320684 / kevin@rivieramusic.co.uk

Andalucia is to legalise more than 327,000 homes that have been in a legal limbo:
A decree from the Junta de Andalucia aims to put an end to the uncertainty in which 327,583 dwellings built throughout Andalucia on land not zoned for housing have found themselves in.
Owners of these houses will have to take the first step and ask their local council to abide by this regulation. This is not an amnesty. Houses built in protected areas such as national parks, within 100 metres of coastline or where demolition orders have been confirmed by the courts are not covered by the decree.
But it is hoped that it will remove the fear of demolition for the vast majority of the properties affected. In the past several houses have been knocked down. The courts arguing compensation should be paid to the owners by the developers or the local council that gave permission for their construction in the first place. The compensation process can take years to get through the courts.
The regulations allow for groups of houses to become urbanisations without being on the official urban development plans (PGOU). Up until now this was not possible and it could take up to nine years to be included. Instead they will be able to be included on a special development plan, which takes about 20 months. This will allow them to access basic services such as electricity and water supplies.
Most of the affected houses are in coastal provinces. Malaga (68,652), Almeria (55,265) and Granada (52,927) occupy the top positions of the list.
Many of these homes were originally built with permission from the local town hall but in areas not officially zoned for housing.
Many people bought their homes in good faith, thinking everything was above board and legal, only to later find the properties were unsaleable due to their ‘irregular’ status. Hopefully now most of these disputed builds can be legalized and bring to an end many years of anxiety.

Alicante braces for mosquito plague: Just as the Alicante region is counting the costs of the worst floods in recorded history to hit the province, biology experts and warning of a secondary catastrophe to emerge from the flood waters. As parts of the region remain under water, the stagnant and murky swamps provide perfect breeding grounds for a multitude of insects including millions of biting flies such as the aggressive tiger mosquito. Environmental experts are also warning of the possibility that the marsh areas are harbouring the eggs of the Asian tiger mosquitos. This invasive species has spread rapidly throughout Europe in the past years and has the potential to carry serious diseases.  Source Link

 

Unidentified Insect: I am quite confident that the Insect is a Water Scorpion (Nepa cinerea), it is easier to identify with a clearer Photograph, when you know its rough size and it is laid out properly displaying all the appendages, however, I am quite sure I have identified the type of Insect correctly. Water Scorpions come in lots of different shapes and sizes, but the Ovipositor looking bit sticking out of the rear (a Snorkel to assist in underwater breathing) helps identify it. The following first Link will provide Photographs and further Links to other Websites, the second is The Wildlife Trust and provides a simple description about Water Scorpions:

I hope this information helps you, your Readers and specifically the Insect discoverer. Best regards, Eric/Nerja vespidae AT btopenworld DoT com

 

Water bug: The water bug is a water scorpion. The long “sting” at the back end is a breathing tube, not to sting with. However, it CAN sting people, but rarely does. Can hurt! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nepa_cinerea

Torrox Spanish History Group:
-Our next talk will be on October 1st and our speaker will be Roy (Vernon) who is giving a talk on Guernica entitled “Why Guernica!”
The bombing of Guernica on 26 April 1937 was an aerial bombing of the Basque town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War by the Nazi’s German Luftwaffes Condor legion.
The bombing is the subject of the anti-war painting Guernica by Pablo Picasso
-On September 3rd we enjoyed an excellent talk given by Anne (Hayes) who gave a talk about the evacuation of the Basque children in 1937 when just under 4,000 children arrived at the Southampton Docks on 23rd May 1937. They traveled to Britain on the steamship Habana. An area of the Spanish Civil war which has not been covered a great deal by Civil War historians. One of our new members is the daughter of one of the teenagers who was sent to Britain at a later date in 1939 and she has the original news papers reporting about the evacuation of Basque children at the time and she will be bringing in copies for us to look at, at our next meeting.
-Our coach trip in November will be to Gerald Brenans house in Alhaurin el Grande.
The Torrox Spanish History Group meets every first Tuesday of the month at El Parquesol at 11am. If you would like to join us then please email me at

Yuri has all the things going for him to make him a player of great distinction in the near future. I look forward to witnessing his continuing growth as a musician.”

Insect photo: Is it possible that the recent identification of the “Water Boatman” insect may be wrong? Could it be a “Backswimmer”? They are very similar to the “boatman”, but will attack small creatures such as tadpoles, and even inflict a painful bite on humans! Details here: https://bugguide.net/node/view/423421
