Many thanks

Praise for Tree Surgeon.

What a pleasure it was to employ Malcolm Poole of 'Pool and Garden Services'  (mobile 625 911 953) to fell a tall old almond tree close to our house.
Malcolm was professional and courteous,  and a careful and attentive instructor of his cheerful and polite young apprentice.  They worked long and hard on a hot day;  did as we requested and left our premises immaculate, with not a flake of sawdust to be seen.
We strongly recommend this duo!  Thank you Malcolm and George (I think).

Vegetarian Restaurants - thank you

Thank you to all who responded to my plea for some ideas for vegetarian restaurants for my visitors.  We now have quite a few to choose from.  Lesley. 

Advice Needed on Car Lights for UK - Responses

Never heard the need for a supplementary mirror most vehicles have two exterior and one interior if correctly adjusted no need for another mirror, way where  is it supposed to be located and for what specific purpose, you would be better to ensure that you have the blocking strips for your head lights to ensure that your left hand throw beams do not affect on coming traffic while in the UK, otherwise you will be constantly flashed and maybe fall foul of the law.
You have been given some strange advice,
I take a left hand drive car to the Uk at least twice a year, the head lights are the main thing and that you have informed your insurance company that you are leaving the country for a period,
Assuming you have two exterior rear view side mirrors (one each side like 99.9% of cars on road) and an adjustable interior rear view mirror, I cannot think why you would need any other mirror at all as you have exactly what 99.9% of English cars do too....
BUT you do have headlights that point the wrong way when dipped - so you need to be lucky enough to have either manual headlamp height adjust fitted to your car (in which case just wind it down to lower/lowest setting) OR you need to fit either purpose built "beam bender" stickers to both your headlamps (I assume these are available, probably from Motoring organisations or places in Spain) or work out the path of your dipped beams and stick black insulating tape strips on your lamp lenses to obviate the glare to oncoming traffic in the UK.   With a little bit of thought latter is quite easy.
Simples!       But the mirror suggestion makes no sense to me (as I sit here in UK with my Spanish car parked outside with no extra mirror).

Lovely kitten seeks home

This lovely female kitten, found (as usual) by the rubbish bins is affectionate and OK with other cats and dogs.

Thank you.

Closures etc

Casa Maria, Torrox Park.  I was very saddened to see that it is closed. 
We were not regular visitors but enjoyed a visit occasionally. Always enjoyed although had to leave before end of session as went on past my bedtime.
As we all know Casa Maria was out in Campo and really did not do any harm to anyone.
Sorry to be outspoken but I do not understand the local Council wanting to close good popular places producing Income and Taxes.  They seem to want to "shoot themselves in the foot".
 The economy is in a mess why destroy necessary income.   
Maybe they just want to get rid of all us visitors who spend so much money in Spain and keep this area going.
 I still find it hard to believe Nerja Council closed the wonderful Donkey Sanctuary. 
It only did good for the animals and very popular with visitors.  They should learn not to destroy something when there nothing wrong with it!.  Maybe the Mayor wants Nerja to go back to being a small Fishing Village and close all the super shops and destroy the economy.  
Had my moan for day!.  James

Endesa Electricty Office

Let's end confusion regarding Endesa Offices in Nerja.
 1st, Its been many many years sine the Electric offices were in Calle Cristo correct name Calle Almarante Farrandiz ,(Cristo). the office is now at the top of Castilla Perez/Chaparil,
 2nd, I don't know what the connection is with Maro which is a small village 4k,m east of Nerja.
 3rd, A short while ago the government made a ruling that companies like Endesa must issue an invoice every month, but they still read the meter every other month, top left hand of your bill will show two readings, one actual, one estimate, and the bottom left hand a graph they work to, if the estimate is incorrect they adjust accordingly, Now, If the meter reader does not have access to the meter on the bimonthly reading your bill will show an estimate taken from previous earlier readings no matter how far back. check that the meter reader always has access, remember a chain/rope or gate across the road will not allow him access

Because our church has recently relocated some people are having difficulty in finding us.

Our services are every Sunday at 11-30 am.
We are an English speaking church with strong Irish and Spanish connections.
Our Minister Steve Anderson and all our members offer a very warm welcome to all who wish to visit.
The directions to the church are as follows:-
Travelling west through Torre del Mar on the A340 continue on to a dual carriageway and follow
this until you see a Repsol garage and a Bazar Oriental store on your left. Just beyond this there
is a roundabout,
Circle this to return on same road but on the other carriageway.
You will now pass the Bazar and garage on your right. Take the next road on the right (Calle Los Padros) and travel to the its end.
The hotel is now immediately in front of you. Enter through the main entrance and turn right.
Down to the end of the passage you will find us in a room on the left.

What a Success !

What a Success !
MacMillan Cancer Support, UK launched their fundraising day "The World's Biggest Coffee Morning" some twenty three years ago and this year, Competa's event was certainly big!!! 
Over one hundred and thirty people came along to generously support our event on 26th September at El Pilon Restaurant.
The popular cake display was amazing with a selection of over thirty different choices. 
As always,  our local community gave so many great prizes for Liz's terrific tombola table.
This one broke all records with over ninety prizes. 
Nicki Kealey correctly guessed the coffee beans in the jar as 966, winning a gift voucher for local store, La Boutique.  
Elaine Surpluss was nearest to guessing the 100s and 1000s on the cake with 25,500 and won the superb cake together with a bottle of Cava.
Due to the generosity of everyone involved, the fifteen volunteers who helped me on the day, everyone who baked a cake together with the donations of venue, produce and tombola prizes,
we raised an incredible €1613 
 Thank you so very much. 
This money will be shared equally between MacMillan Cancer Support, UK to ensure no-one faces cancer alone and Cudeca Cancer Care, Spain so they can continue with their special kind of caring through adding life to days. 
Thank you everyone, Cindy Jones, Cudeca Volunteer.

They are 4-5 months old. 2 male and 1 female (I think).

All very friendly and good / friendly with my dogs and two cats.

No money wanted, just a good home and plenty of love and affection.

charities, but I do not call them by it. I play with them all the time and have not had a hard scratch

or bite, even when worming tablets given. Perfect to grow up with a child!!

Vegetarian Recommendations

We went to the new Muerda La Pasta in El Ingenio last night after visiting San Miguel Feria.
 It was far better than anticipated - there is an excellent choice of salads, pastas, pizzas freshly prepared - some chicken and fish. Very vegetarian-friendly. It's a Buffet Libre (all-you-can-eat for a fixed price) and includes bread rolls, dessert and drinks (water, juice, refrescos, beer, coffee).
There is also a big enclosed play area for children which is readily visible from where you are eating.
We would endorse the recommendation for both Bar Italia and La Gustosa (both excellent choices for those with limited appetite and/or budget too.

What's on MultiCultural Night of Music & Dance

MultiCultural Night of Music & Dance
Sunday October 5 from 7.30pm, La Plaza, Canillas de Albaida
Free Entry
As part of its Cultural week, the Ayuntamiento of Canillas de Albaida proudly presents the third
Night of Multi-cultural Music and Dance to be held in the Plaza (main square) in Canillas deAlbaida on Sunday 5th October. Admission to the event is free but there will be opportunities to donate to local charities.
The event will be hosted by Inez Leniere and Roger Sparks in Spanish and English and they will open the concert at 7.30pm.
The first artists to perform will be the Canillas Children’s flamenco dance group, Las Niñas de Canillas, this is a group of local Spanish and English children dancing traditional dances. Local band The Rooters, (Tom Robinson, Rod Jones and Mitch France) will then play a mix of American and British songs.
Fantastic Belgian Flamenco guitarist, Pedro Sauviller, who learned his trade amongst the gypsies of Seville, will be performing next, followed by Tom Robinson who will play a selection of tunes on his clarinet including the well requested “Stranger on the Shore”.
Up next will be another local group, Aire Flamenco, a band of 3 musicians, from Cómpeta and Árchez. They play all styles of music, rock & roll, reggea, etc, although they recognize that Spanish music is their first love.
Irish music will be represented by Mitch France, who will play a selection of well know Irish drinking songs to sing along to and also some traditional tunes on tenor banjo and mandolin.
Isidro and Cristina are two artists who dedicate their lives to spreading the Andalusian culture and customs through the discipline of dance, guitar and singing, and their sole intention is to try to convey their feelings to the audience, go beyond the image and folklore and make you want to smile.
At around 11.30pm (if all goes to plan), as many musicians as is practical will join The Rooters and play some music for dancing to.
This unique multi-cultural night of music was a huge success when held last year, please come along and make sure it is just as successful again this year.
There will be an opportunity to donate to local charities
For Youtube footage of the last concert, key in "Canillas de Albaida Multicultural night".

Vegetarian food

I read the post on vegetarian food in the Vinuela area, and I'd like to add a few!
Starting with Taj Mahal, who serve wonderful veggie options of ALL their dishes and they have a whole vegetarian section as well (do try the baingan bharta, it's delicious!)
Haven't been to Chez Spice for a while but they are bound to do great stuff as well. They used to do onion bhajis. I miss onion bhajis.
And in Torre del Mar there's the new Greek place (forgot the name, but it's next to the church)
 they do lovely dips and cheeses, and the other Taj Mahal which does amazing veggie food as well
(the palak paneer is wonderful).
And there are lots of pizza places that do vegetarian pizzas, including el gustuoso who do a really nice bruchetta pizza and some wonderful salads and Bar italia who do an amazing pizza funghi!
hmmm, now I'm hungry....
¡buen provecho!

Question about electricity

Can anyone explain to me why I am now being billed monthly (at great expense) by ENDESA as opposed to once every two months?
Ever since I have had my apartment in Spain I was only ever billed once every 2 months by ENDESA for electricity.
The bills were always very reasonable, especially as the apartment is only used for 6 weeks in the Summer.
Then last year I saw a massive increase in the amount I was being charged - still for the  2 month period.
However, now it would seem, ENDESA are billing me MONTHLY and the prices are higher than ever.
As my home is in the UK, I find it very difficult to sort things out 'remotely' - so I would be appreciative of any advice/help you could afford me.
Thank you in advance!
