Possible Sighting of Lost Cat

Regarding the missing cat, I believe I saw this cat a week ago (last Sunday-ish) at the helipad
He was hiding under the ford I have parked outside..
He seemed to be bigger than your average cat, and unfortunately the over protective mother cat I have at the moment chased him off
I haven't seen him since but its worth having a scout around that area

Bouquet for a Sweep

I would like to give a bouquet to Diego the chimney sweep.
Having seen someone mention him on digame I contacted him to clean our chimney.
He was punctual and polite and left everywhere spotlessly clean. ​​
Highly recommend him.
He lives on the coast and not in Competa as was previously mentioned but is happy to travel inland as well as the coast.
 Remember winter is coming and your chimney should be swept regularly to avoid fire in the chimney and for your house insurance to be valid.
You can contact Diego on 952515065.

DJ Recommendation

Dee Jay Worzel
I would like to recommend a great DJ for your parties.
Dee Jay Worzel is a spanish guy called Antonio.
You may have seen him in some of the bars in Algorobbo or Torre del Mar.
He is very individual, enthusiastic and energetic, and will put on a great evening of music for you.
He doesn't just play discs but puts a lot of himself into his performance.
We hired him for a wedding party, and although he lives at Torrox, he was happy to come out to Vinuela, and his charges were very reasonable.
It was the best party music we have been to in our years in Spain.
He speaks a little English but his partner Jacqui is English.
Contact them on 625 31 93 23 or email november61 at hotmail dot es
You'll have a great night!

Opinion.....

Undoubtedly this request will fall on deaf ears, but I can at least try.
In the English language, the word 'boy' is normally understood to refer to a member of genus homo sapiens of male gender below the approximate age of 14. We also have the female equivalent 'girl', which, likewise, is normally reserved for members of this same genus.  It seems however that a sizeable proportion of the English-speaking population of
Torrox is set upon permanently changing the meaning of both of these terms to refer no longer to humans but to dogs.
Now I have nothing personally against dogs and I do appreciate the commendable work done by members of our community in making sure that stray dogs find good homes. 
However, I would request that those contributors to Digame who habitually refer to their dogs as if they were human beings please take into consideration the semantic and linguistic difficulties they present to Digame readers who may on occasion be taken off-guard and believe, albeit for just a few moments, that a child has been lost or that one is about to be put down by the authorities or that one is being offered via some sort of unofficial scheme that has managed to bypass the normally stringent controls on the adoption of children.

Lost Boy

This little Lhasa Apso dog was found in the Pago Imaroga/La Noria area of the campo near Nerja in a bit of a messy state with lots of brambles and thorns matted into his fur. 
A quick vet examination shows that he is in good health and a Good Samaritan has paid to have him groomed and vaccinated. 
We have called this little lost boy Keifer and he is about 1 year old and, unfortunately, he is not microchiped or castrated.
If you know of anyone who has lost this dog please contact Seacrest Kennels at 95 252 1426. 
Or if you are willing to foster or provide a permanent home for Keifer, with the understanding that his owner may come forward at a later date, please contact us.Thanks.

Recipes Please

Hello friends and relatives,
A few friends are concocting a cookery book to help raise money for the very worthy charity called CUDECA.
 It is a Spanish Hospice for all who suffer with cancer, and their relatives, to have access to vital support, counselling, doctor and nurse home visits and a beautiful place to end their days calmly and quietly.
Our aim is to have a cookery book with all kinds of easy recipes for soups,cakes, bread, starters, main meals, desserts, smoothies, etc. etc.
We plan to publish the recipes in Spanish as well as English and I am asking you to send me a favourite recipe (using metric measures please).
As Competa has a huge number of expats from many countries, it will be great to include as many nationalities as possible.
Also, if you have allergies to any food then please label the recipe as: gluten free, lactose free, (garlic free - my husband´s request!), etc.
We can´t guarantee your particular recipe will be used but if it is then your name will be acknowledged.
I am eagerly waiting your replies and recipes.
Yummy regards from Jo Robinson

Dangerous Dog - Responses

(1) I would suggest to the couple who are having problems with this mad dog, that you carry some sort of weapon, ie a baseball bat, because next time it might be you that is attacked.
Mark
(2)
I am very sorry for the lady whose dogs have been killed. Having been a witness for a friend who took someone to court for being bitten by their dog, I would urge all the people who've had problems to make denuncias to the police. This gets the problems embedded in the Spanish legal system. By all means go to the mayor with a petition if nothinghappens, but it's the police who have to take action. If I remember correctly, it's the Guardia Civil you have to go to, as they have jurisdiction, not the municipal police. The wheels of Spanish grind, but unfortunately exceeding slow.
I see that Go Vegan are on Tripadvisor. You and others could always leave comments of your experience there?
Good luck!
Paul
(3)
Like many I am sure, I am appalled by the inability of this dogs owners to restrain it. They clearly are not caring people. I would be more than happy to sign any petition calling for action to control it. How long before a human is killed? I am immensely impressed by the restraint in the language used by Jennifer concerning this heartbreaking occurrence - I am quite sure the language I would have used would have been mostly unprintable!  Nigel.

Spanish Car Kit - response

Lots of reasonably good info on web, but even from these usually "reliable" sources inconsistencies can arise.  
If in doubt, more is better. 
While in a Uk vehicle just visiting one may get away with less, in a Spanish registered vehicle two triangles and two reflective vests plus a small first aid kit would seem to fit the bill and be safest and most
as cheap-as-chips.

Making a Denuncia - Responses

(1)
Denuncing people is a free & simple process.
You just report the person/people to the Guardia Civil. But & there is always a but! Don't hold your breath. Go armed with evidence & a bus load of witnesses, otherwise you will be wasting your time.
Also this urban myth about three strikes and your out, is exactly that, a myth. I believe the charity T.A.I.L, have denunced someone over animal cruelty & verbal abuse towards one of the staff, to be told that the latest denuncia would be filed with the 20 plus other denuncias they have on this person.
(2)
From personal experience I would advise to be very careful when making a denuncia.  It is not like the UK, if the case gets to court one does not swear an oath to tell the truth and the other party will most definitely lie as it is in their interest to do so.  Therefore unless you have witnesses to the incident/accident, you are at the mercy of the court.  If you are two foreigners with a disagreement, you won’t stand a hope in hell as the court just wants the matter off their list. There are 2 types of denuncia, criminal and civil.
Criminal you denounce at the Guardia Station in your area and the civil at an Abogado.
(3)
To make a denuncia go to the Guardia Civil opposite mercadona in Nerja take all relevant details, passport, n.i.e. Cert, tel, no, e,mail address ect, and make your complaint to one of the officers
If you do not speak perfect Spanish take an interpreter with you as the are very impatient
with foreigners. I know all this to be correct as I have just spent the morning doing a denuncia
There is no charge

Lost Cat ? Needs a Home

She deserves good home.
She is about 5 months old.

Killer Dog on La Mata, Competa

Just a few short months ago I wrote to Digame to inform the people in the area of La Mata, Competa that my small dog had been attacked and killed by a huge white dog that is owned by ‘Go Vegan’ who live on La Mata. 
We went to the Local police at the time, they were very helpful and they visited the owners of this monster animal at least 4 times and eventually could not persuade them to agree to do anything more permanent than keeping the dog restrained and contained. 
The arrogant unfeeling owners have allowed the dog to roam again and now it has killed our other sweet wonderful rescue dog. 
My husband was walking our dogs this morning when they were attacked by this same animal, he was able to keep one of our dogs out of harm’s way but the other was mortally injured and my husband suffered bites to his hand. 
This must stop and we beg the Mayor and officials in Competa to act to protect both dogs and people from this animal, it has the taste of blood and no right thinking society should allow it to roam free.
 I received 4 reports of other animals that had been killed or injured by the same dog after my last missive to Digame . 
I will be organising a petition to the Ayuntamiento if nothing is done in respect of our denuncia to rid us of this dangerous dog.
Let us hope good sense prevails.

DoctorLaptop's Tips #25 19OCT14

Blank Page or Crash When Opening Gmail or Chrome?
Apps vs Programs. Windows 10 preview released!
This content relates to Windows computers only. Apps are programs created to run in devices specifically designed to run apps, typically smartphones, tablets, touchscreen devices and Win 8+ computers. The ability to run apps was included in Win 8, however Windows 7 and earlier versions do not run apps without installing a special program for running apps. The exception is apps that you add to the Chrome Browser from theChrome Store. These are "Chrome Apps" that will run from the Apps window of your Chrome Browser. I have had several clients recently who managed to install on a Win 7 computer the Gmail app or the Chrome app instead of the program, while using a non-Chrome browser. They found the apps may work initally but soon develops a problem causing blank white pages or Blue Screens of Death that upon analysis of the mini-dump indicate(falsely) a graphics card driver conflict. If you are going to install Chrome be sure to download the program, not the app, on pre-Win 8 computers. On pre-Win 8 computers access Gmail by visiting the Gmail site directly and sign in. Do not put a Gmail shortcut on your desktop, in my experience these have proven problematic, while shortcuts to Chrome (the program) are perfectly ok. Making a Bookmark(or Favorite) in your browser's toolbar is the proper method to create a way to access a site quickly. Besides, desktop clutter slows your computer's startup time considerably.
I received my preview version of Windows 10 this week. My first impression is it is much more like Win 7 than Win 8 was. Holiday shoppers will be well advised to skip buying any new computers till this Spring when Win 10 starts shipping. Please don't fall for salesmen's
lies that you will be able to do a free upgrade from Win 8 to Win 10, MS free upgrades are notorious for failing! BTW: MS says this will be the last major upgrade for Windows as
these major new releases have proven unwelcome...just tons of smaller updates from now on.
