Health Spa in Nerja Needed Please

Does anyone know of a Health Spa in or around the Nerja area?
I know there is a gym but I am looking for a Health Spa, pool, jacuzzi, sauna etc.,
my contact details are
eveinspain2000 at yahoo dot co dot uk

Teacher of Ethics & History Needed Please

We need private tuition for the Spanish 4th year syllabus in these two subjects.
A Spanish teacher with enough English to translate to the student's parents would be useful!
I can read Spanish but not understand rapid Andalusian Spanish, and the school staff don't seem helpful. Ideally home tuition in Torrox Pueblo or somewhere accessible to be agreed.

Clinica Rincon - Opinions Please

I would be interested in hearing of anyone's experiences of using Clinica Rincon - if diagnosis was correct, did practitioners speak English, was the service value for money, would they go back etc. 
How does Clinica Rincon compare with other clinics in the Nera/Torre area.
Many thanks

Opinions on Opinion : Nomenclature in Digame

(1)
I felt the need to reply to John Gosling following his unfathomable rant over people who refer to cats and dogs as 'boys' or 'girls'.
Firstly John, as a 'parent' of dogs, one male and one female - these animals are part of our family and we love them very much. It is not unreasonable to refer to them as our 'boy' and our 'girl'. 
We know they are not children we are not unintelligent just a little sentimental.
Secondly John, as a parent of actual children I can assure you that, God forbid, one of my children was missing, I would not be posting on Digame!
Whilst I do think Digame is a fantastic service, it is not the first place I would think of if I were suffering the nightmare of losing a child.  (No offence Jane)
My parting shot to you is.... get a bl---y grip!
Sam Benson
(2)
Dog. Scientific name:- Canis Lupus Familiaris
Genders:- Male, Female - Dog, Bitch - Boy, Girl.
What a shame Mr Gosling that you have nothing more to think about than attempting to change what owners call their pets.
You really should get a life and not be quite so pompous.
Seve, a really good boy
(3)
Re John Gosling's opinion on people anthropomorphizing their cats and dogs.
Here-here Mr Gosling!
(I even know people who send their dogs Xmas cards signed: "from MUMMY" )
Very sad.
John B
(4)
John Gosling. Please get a life. If your statement is all you have to worry about you  must have a very boring life.
I have 2 dogs. One is my boy and the other my girl.
They are not human but behave far better than many humans.
I have 2 grandchildren also. One is my boy and the other my girl.
Believe me, I do not get the 4 of them mixed up!!!
Pam
(5)
I can only imagine how shocked John must be when he is caught off guard reading Digame.
 I have this mental picture of John spitting out his cornflakes, when reading that some poor soul can't find her Pussy or that our Bobby has out grown our family, so would some kind person like him free of charge!
I'm really not sure what the problem is John.
I'm a keen horse racing fan & over the years I'm pretty sure I've heard it said on Channel 4 " she is very frisky today,
 I'm not sure she is liking Frankie on top of her" or "she is sweating up going in".
Many a time I've dropped my Sporting Life in complete horror, wondering what on earth I was watching(joking).
Maybe Digame is structured in such a way to stop the kind of confusion that John has?
First few posts, lost/found/re home pets, the next posts, general info & moaning about calling your pets he/she, then whats on & finally, wanted & for sale.
I have two dogs(or should I say bitches) & as far as im concerned, they are my girls.
But then again, I do live in Torrox!
(6)
The post by John re male/female animals being referred to as boys or girls certainly did not fall on deaf ears - not in my direction anyway.
I opened up Digame with my morning cuppa and there it was Breaking News............Lost Boy!
Thoughts of child abduction promptly entered my mind until I read on and I found it totally pathetic.
Well done Sir for airing your views.
Carol
(7)
I know you've written this to incite people and normally I wouldn't respond to such drivel but I'm having a very bad day.   Our little 18 month old female cat died in the early hours of today and however you or the dictionary defines the word 'girl'.
Roxy is and always will be our beautiful little girl.
Sally
(8)
Oxford English Dictionary meaning of he/she.....
I have never bothered to reply via Digame regards these sad people who seem to spend their time griping about anything they can think of on Digame.
To be honest why do they read the posts anyway if they find it not to their taste? 
Anyway, just to get the record straight regards the meaning of he/she here is the link from the Oxford English Dictionary.
http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/he
http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/she

Editor writes - 
and number 8 ends the delightful exchange of whimsical  opinions. 
Many thanks to all who particpated - couldn't do it without you!

Spa Day Raises €580 for The Hungry & Homeless

On Saturday 18th October, holistic therapists from the region gave their expertise, free of charge, in order to raise money for the hungry and homeless in Malaga.
A Spa Day was held at the garden centre Viveros Algarrobo, on the A356 near la Vinuela, where seven therapists offering treatments as diverse as reflexology, reiki, shamanic healing and deep tissue massage, helped raise €580 for the Food for Change project.
The event was organised by Maggie Culver who regularly collects donations and delivers food to Ángeles de la Noche in Malaga – a centre where the poor and homeless are fed daily.
Thanks should go to therapists: Debbie Roberts, Eileen Roberts, Maria Gabriela, Renate Grafer-Baetz, Jenny Wright, Gaby and Mo.
Thanks also to Karen from Rumours Hair Salon in Puente don Manuel for a donation of clothes, and to Tai-chi Jane for her donation.
Huge thanks to Maria and David from the Viveros Algerrobo garden centre who allowed us to use their function room and grounds, free of charge.
This is the third such spa day in the last twelve months, our total donated to date is €1,515

Quality Service in Nerja

Couple of compliments regarding good service in Nerja , first Bakus the restaurant at the bottom of Calle Frigiliana, proper top food, excellent service, plenty of staff (that actually looked liked they enjoyed being there), very clean. Price, you be the judge, three aperitifs, two bottles of a very nice white wine, brandy, whisky, coffee, cava(free!!)  three courses (proper portions) for three very hungry diners-----euro144.
Secondly the Shoe Repairer  at the junction of Calle La Cruz/Calle Animas, took my expensive motorbike boots in with a hole in the sole that you could push your fingers through, got told to return in two days time (cobblers, two days, no way!!) returned in two days and lo and behold job done and done well for all of euros25!!!

Thanks for Successful Sale

I would like to thanks those who showed interest in the Iphone 4s black that I advertised on the website, I sold it to the second person that contacted me, this was a phone call I got  just after it was put on around 6pm on 20th October.
I sent all emails a reply to thank those people but I would also like to thanks the people for the phone calls.
Kind regards to all and thanks to Digame Torrox.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.
