DigameXtra No. 973, Wednesday, June 13th 2018

Welcome to DigameXtra !

The content of this blog site comes from its subscribers/followers, but is subject to editing at the Editor’s discretion. The Editor is Naythan.

Subscribe/follow to receive daily issues by email and gain submitting privileges. Following on FaceBook alone does not give you submission privileges, for that you must follow this blog by email.

Instructions and rules for subscribing/following and for making submissions are at the bottom of every issue. By making a submission you are indicating you have read and agree to follow the rules. Incorrect submissions are returned. Sorry, no more phone calls to get missing info.


There has been enough time to read the important announcements regarding recent rules updates and new GDPR laws. I have moved them to the bottom of the page. Almost everyone is now sending in correctly formatted submissions, thanks, it really makes my job easier!

Submissions must show the reply contact as the sender’s email address. By EU internet privacy law only the email address of the sender is allowed.

From “the torture never stops” file: Announced on TRE Radio. New laws have been enacted requiring websites in Spain, that wish to advertize vacation rentals, to register and submit copy to some agency. Begins this September.  I will not be doing this. So beginning July 1st only long term (11 month minimum) property rental listings will be accepted. Sorry.

Still more new legal stuff: Many submissions include Whatsapp contact numbers. Whatsapp is not GDPR Law compliant. You use it at your own risk. DigameXtra cannot be responsible should you choose to do so.

Day trip to Marbella: We have a day trip to Marbella on Saturday 23rd June. The price is 16€ per person and includes the round trip from Torrox. Departure time is at 9 am in the morning and we will be leaving Marbella at around 6 pm in the evening. When we think of Marbella we think of: luxury, discos, fun and the beach, but there is a more typical and traditional Marbella that not everybody knows. The old centre is a surprising andalusian gem. You will be surprised to know that Marbella is much more than luxury shops and high-end cars. Would you like to discover this Marbella with us? We are looking forward to you coming with us.

Madras Curry House, Torrox Costa: If you like Indian food you must go here. Even though it has been open for 4 months we only discovered it through Digame and am so delighted we did. We have experienced quite a few Indian restaurants from Nerja to Torrox and this is by far the best. The food was absolutely delicious, the service excellent and Deepak was extremely helpful and obliging and ensured everything was top notch. No more pondering where to eat as this will be our regular. Go check it out, you won’t be disappointed. Lori from La Vinuela ltmckeown at hotmail dot co dot uk

Recommendation for Dr Laptop’s Computer Services: On my recent trip to Spain, once again your editor Naythan was presented with another challenge to repair my Acer Windows 8 laptop. It had been updated to Windows 10 but an update killed it. Naythan worked hard to resurrect it – as he has done with another two laptops that needed repair – and all of which are in current use again. Thank you Naythan, and keep up the good work.

AAR’s appeal for a forever home or foster home for Sophie and Jilly: Broken hearted and pining following the death of their owner, Sophie (16) and Jilly (13) both mixed breeds find themselves sad and homeless. Kennels are not the place for these lovely senior girls and we are desperately searching for a loving long term foster or forever home for them both. Both these old ladies are loving and sweet souls who deserve to see out what time they have left in the comfort and kindness of a home environment where they can rest their weary bones.  Both girls are reasonably fit for their ages although Sophie is deaf. Both are fine with other dogs.
Ideally, the sisters will be homed together. If you can find room in your home and your heart for one or both of these sweet old ladies then please get in touch.
Any offers to help will be fully supported with AAR waiving adoption fees and paying any and all future vet bills.
Please contact: TracyDella at axarquia-rescue@hotmail.com
