Request for Physiotherapist - Thanks

Many thanks to the Digamites that have responded to my enquiry regarding a Physiotherapist -
 (preferably English speaking).
Digame strikes again!!! what would we do without you! 

Price of electricity - Response

I think the price of electricity seems high here because they all charge pro rata for your potencia or maximum available power and then add IVA tax at the maximum rate.
However it is possible to shop around. Three or four years ago I switched to Iberdrola because a door to door agent came and offered a good price. But there was a charge for surge protection insurance that I didn't need. This was free for the first year and after that it kicked in at over 5 euros so I went online and signed up for an online contract where you can choose not to have this charge. No paper bills but better prices. It was quite painless but I can't remember if you could choose an English translation, but use an online translator if needed.

Replacement Printer Inks Needed

Can anyone recommend a supplier of Epsom XP 750 Printer Cartridges?

What's on Crown Green Bowling near Velez Malaga

Are you a bowler or would you like to give it a try? 
We bowl every week, a group of ladies & gents, some more competitive than others!!
We would love some newcomers to join us, it does get a bit monotonous continually beating the men, seriously we do let them win occasionally!!
It is a relaxing game in the sunshine, gentle exercise, though it's surprising how far you walk during a match, there are both morning or afternoon sessions or you can play both if you are really keen.
Mike Hood, the owner, serves tea or coffee and cake after each session & we sit & put the world to rights, in a pleasant way, in the lovely setting of his garden.
You don't need to have your own bowls, Mike has a selection to choose from of different weights & sizes, he is also an excellent instructor if you've never tried bowling before, and is very happy to teach total beginners.
The only requisite is shoes or sandals without any heel, they must be totally flat.
For further information please phone Mike on 951 167 005 or mob 610 834 238

Calling All Digamites.

   I’ll cut to the chase of a very long and sad story.
On the evening of 12th October 2002, yes you heard correctly, 2002.
I had a trailer stolen.
Unfortunately, there was a small quad type car inside. (yes, inside, it was very small.)

The insurance had expired, and I had no money, so took it off the road. (my newly born son was 3 months old at the time, and was having surgery, so you can imagine the stress)
The Guardia Civil were informed, and that was that.
I heard nothing more.
Then, the other day I was working in Competa when I came across the trailer.
I couldn’t believe it.
Nearly 13 years since it’s disappearance.
The Guardia Civil are looking in to it and have been very helpful so far.
However, being that the trailer is in Competa, 
I believe that the car cannot be that far away.
I have attached a picture of the car as it was in 2002.
Have any of you Digamites seen it locally?
The registration number was X733VWV.
All information treated in the strictest confidence.
I can’t offer a reward, and at this stage,  but you may help to catch the villain.
Here’s  hoping...

Recording TV - Response

I have a GI Satellite box and record TV to a portable Hard Disc.
One hour of Standard Definition occupies about 1.5 Gb and one hour of HD about 2.5 Gb.
Initially I was not able to record at all and had to have the software upgraded. However, there is still a problem.
The box has 8 timers and should allow you to set up several programs in advance.
If I program it to record BBC1 at 7.00 pm and BBC2 at 9.00 pm  then I have to leave the box set at BBC1. BBC1 will be recorded.
The box will switch over at 9.00 pm but nothing is recorded.
After several months this problem has still not been solved.
If Michael needs any help with setting timers or play back he can contact me on torrox1000 at
gmail dot com.
If anyone has the solution to my problem please contact me at the same address.

'Twisted Tales' by John Hardy is a 3rd collection of short stories of crime and mystery.
It is available as an EBook and paperback from all Amazon platforms, at

Like 'Andalucían Mysteries' and 'More Andalucían Mysteries', some of the stories are set in southern Spain, but there are also stories set in England, a spoof Sherlock Holmes story but set in Madrid, and two set in the Middle East in biblical times.

Restaurant Padre Pio - Recommendation

Recommending a particular restaurante to others is fraught with dangers given the variability of people's likes & dislikes!
Anyway, last night 4 of us ventured to Padre Pio Restaurant on the Torre del Mar promenade and had an exceptional meal.
So if you like restaurants like, La Farola, Bakus, and La Viuda, then you will surely enjoy Padre Pio.
Make sure you book thru TripAdvisor’s “thefork” so you get a 40% discount off the Al la Carte menu prices!
