Beware of Farmers putting down Poison

For all you dog walkers who like to take your dogs 'off road' in the Campo
near any grapevines . It is nearing the harvest time for the grapes and it
is at this time of the year that some farmers put poison down to kill off
the fruit rats.

Please keep your dogs away from any areas where there are vines. It is
illegal to use poison but unfortunately some still do as I found out the
hard way losing my little dog a couple of years ago.

Three adorable puppies desperately need homes

These three puppies were abandoned down at the River Chillar in Nerja.
They are thought to have been born in January and are very affectionate and
love people. They are in desperate need of a kind caring home as their
current foster home can no longer accommodate them and they will probably
have to go to the dog pound. Please if anybody can give them a good home
please contact Gill on 633 171 250
The black puppy is female, and the brown and white ones are both males.
Thank you

Who'll save this beautiful German shepherd?

Isn't she lovely? She's even cuter in real life! She's called Rio and she
was kicked out by her owner when she got leischmaniosis....

Leischmaniosis is a very treatable, non-contagious dog disease that can be
easily controlled with (cheap!) pills, but if nobody adopts her and gives
her the leischmaniosis medication, she'll die. And she's such a cute, cuddly
dog. Some volunteers took her to the vet and she was soooo happy and
grateful for the attention they gave her! She'd make someone a really
wonderful, loving, loyal dog. So Please help this lovely girl, she really
deserves some luck!

Felix the cat still needs a new home

Felix looks exactly like a cat with that name should!. He came to us via
CAS three years ago.
We have a house full of cats and until recently they all lived in harmony.
It may be due to the introduction of a kitten that we rescued from certain
death in the street, but Felix is now a very unhappy fellow. He is at odds
with the oldest cat and sometimes with the others, alternately scrapping and
mewing pathetically, he is leaving his mark in many places and not behaving
like his usual sociable self. He has always liked to climb and our house
has become too restricting for him. He needs space that is his - he was
born in the wild and needs a garden of his own or access to the campo.
Like the cartoon cat, he is a sleek, gutsy doctored tom and has never been
Can someone please offer him a new home so that he can be happy again? - he
deserves it!

One of the best suggestions that have come from the many many phone calls

committee please email me as soon as possible. We are getting no response

Valid Comments

further to the very valid comments of Paula Coxall about the craziness of
the Ayuntamiento and their non granting of anything to increase business; do
not think it is just restricted to the village! It is exactly the same on
the Costa with previously granted licenses being cancelled at the last
minute; tourists being left with no further entertainment other than over
priced dining and rip off drinks prices and a flat refusal in the offices of
the local council to offer any assistance when it comes to paperwork
There are so few bars allowed to entertain in the whole of this area that
the comments of tourists are " why bother coming back"
It will kill the area

Yoga classes in El Trapiche and Comares

Cancelled licence Meson Tereza

The tourist business in Torrox is struggling. Brave entrepreneurs work hard
to help the village by planning activities for locals and tourist. Why can
the ayuntamiento stop these activities with no compensation to the owners of
these small businesses? July and August should be a time to "make hay while
the sun shines". This is the second week end we the residents of Torrox,
have been disappointed with the Torrox night life.

Canillas Cats

Further to my last 2 emails I have now witnessed a Junta de Andalusia 4x4 on
the streets of Canillas de Albaida at 10.30 am this morning (Sunday). I had
just finished feeding the feral cats and walking home when I spotted this
vehicle with boxes on the top. Knowing the situation my suspicions were
aroused and I followed the vehicle down the street. They stopped and I asked
them what they were doing and were they trapping dogs. One member of the
gang said no. But the others started laughing at me and making cat noises
and banging the sides of the boxes. They then said they were catching dogs
and cats and that they were killing the cats. I stayed for a while but they
did not do anything while I was there. Some were local men that I

Drum Circle

Hi, if you're still reading.... you must be interested!
I'd like to get a Drum Circle going at Penoncillo Beach, Torrox Costa.
Any ideas, anyone??
Probably on a Saturday from about 6pm. They usually last about 3 hours.
Thump away your excess energy.
You don't need a drum to take part. Anything percussive will do. A Coke can
with a pebble in is the simplest.... I have a Bodhran, for my sins.
I got hooked on Drum Circles at Venice Beach, Los Angeles.

Rivermen cancelled at Meson tereza

Dear Digame,

The Riverman gig has had to be cancelled because the Ayuntamiento did not
give the final piece of paper and withdrew the license yesterday after
initially agreeing to it.

I realize that this is maybe too late to let people know. But I thought I
should try to inform you.

Many thanks Jane Phillips bazmycat at

Non-slip Help

.... please.
A few weeks ago there was an advert in one of the free newspapers offering
to apply a rough texture to the bottom of the bath. This is so you don't
slip when showering. Now I need it I can't find the advert! Does anyone have
any info on the efficacy of this treatment and who does it? We've tried the
sucker type bath mats and the stick on strips. Thanks, Keith. keithhallam at

Gas-man ACTION!!

I don´t understand this guy is still walking around!!
If the gas man (or any other uniform) comes to your gate;
Ask him for his company and private ID. (identificación de la empresa y
identificación personal)
If he doesn´t have that, don´t let him in but walk him to his car, take his
registration plate and show him that you are writing that down and phone in
the meantime a friend to make him think you phone the police.
If he does have a company ID, phone the number which is on it and show him
that you are doing this.
If he really is "the gasman" he wouldn´t mind, if he is not, he will leave
quiet and quick.
At least you will than have some details to go to the police.
This man will continue his tricks if we all stay polite and do nothing.
You don´t need to let anyone on your plot without permission!!!!
He will not go to the Spanish houses just to us foreigners who are too
polite to say something or are too afraid to make trouble.
Don´t get ripped off......TAKE ACTION!!!! YOU HAVE RIGHTS!!!
Good luck all,

Felix the cat needs a new home

Felix looks exactly like his name suggests. He came to us via CAS three
years ago.
We have a house full of cats and until recently they all lived in harmony.
It may be due to the introduction of a kitten that we rescued from certain
death in the street, but Felix is now a very unhappy fellow. He is at odds
with the oldest cat and sometimes with the others, alternately scrapping and
mewing pathetically, he is leaving his mark in many places and not behaving
like his usual sociable self. He has always liked to climb and wander and
our house has become too restricting for him. He needs space that is his -
he was born in the wild and needs a garden of his own or access to the
He is a sleek, elegant doctored tom and has never been ill.
Can someone please offer him a new home so that he can be happy again? - he
deserves it!

Bogus Gas man in the campo

HI, just a warning to all readers, we had a bogus gas man visit us today at

broken rear light.

We are 1 km from the village and up a steep track, so be on your guard.

Cats and dogs in Canillas de Albaida

If you have a cats or dogs in Canillas de Albaida and they are allowed to
run free in the streets be warned. The Town Hall are sending out people to
catch them and take them to the pound or worse.

This is being done without any warning to the citizens of Canillas. In
fact I was told not to reveal the source of my information. I will honour
this confidence as it has given me the opportunity to warn everyone what is

One instance of this trapping is of a lady who lives in Canillas whose pet
cat was caught in one of the nets and died immediately probably from fright.

I thought that Canillas de Albaida was an enlightened village but have been
proved wrong. They have a cat charity in the village who has been trapping,
neutering and feeding cats in this area for the past 5 years. These
animals have been neutered at a cost of hundreds of euros. Obviously there
is no point in having a charity such as this if the cats that have been
neutered are likely to collected and put down. 5 years ago there were a lot
of unhealthy cats in this village. This is not the case now.

Lost dog

Our Spanish neighbours, Puri and Benino, who are very fond of their dog,
lost him when he slipped the lead in the campo near Alhaurin de la Torre.
They are missing him badly, and worried that he will not find his way home
to Canillas de Albaida.

Would you please keep an eye open for him, and if you have friends living
out in that direction, ask them to watch out for him? His name is Nori, and
he is a medium size slightly shaggy, mottled grey colour. He is fully
jabbed-up and micro chipped, has a collar, and was healthy and well cared
for when last seen. He might, therefore, not look as if he is an abandoned

We have always found him to be a friendly and happy dog, so he may well come
if called, especially if tempted with a treat. It is not clear whether there
is a telephone number on his collar, but a vet would be able to identify him
from his microchip.

He has been missing for less than a week, and we are hoping that he may be
found and reunited with his family. If you could put the word around, we'd
be grateful.

Many thanks.

News from Nerja Foreigners Department

While the sun is shining (for the most part!) in Spain, it is easy to forget that living in another country is not all plain sailing. For example, it has been well documented how many UK state pensioners resident in Spain have suffered with the devaluation of the Pound against the Euro.
However, although unable to claim UK pension credit, as this means-tested benefit is only available to those who are resident in the UK, UK State Pensioners should be aware that the Spanish authorities also provide a range of welfare help. For example, you may be entitled to Spanish means-tested benefits from your local town hall or social services, such as a non-contributory pension. Those in a situation of dependence may also be able to get practical and/or financial assistance under the Ley de Dependencia.
So, if you need help, make an appointment with the social worker at your town hall. And remember, if you need to prove your state pension income as part of an application for social help, call the Pension, Benefit and Healthcare Team (PBHT) on 902 103 356 to request a pension confirmation certificate.

A cruel heartless person tried to kill my dog

Dear neighbours in the Axarquia,
Some of you know my dog Atreyu very well. He was a stray dog in the streets
of Malaga until two years ago, when my son found him badly hurt (with just
half a tongue and a big scar under his right eye) and took him to our house
in Torrox. At the time, we did not know that we would get to love him so
much as to consider him one more in our family. He's always been a very
active dog (hyperactive sometimes), eager to play all the time but really
harmless, even to those who are not keen on animals. His hound instincts
make him very territorial and he barks to passers by but never bites or
shows an aggressive behaviour. He is always in our house, except when he is
out, walking with us and always on a lead. These hot days, he's been out, in
the terrace and garden but with the gate closed so that he could not go out
to the street. On Thursday, he found a small sausage in our little garden.
He did not eat it immediately, but kept it between his teeth. When I tried
to take it away from him, a needle stuck on my hand so I let the sausage go
and my dog swallowed it.

Space Available for "The Path to Paella"

Casa Cebadillas in Torrox Pueblo has space available for the one day class "The Path to Paella".  Class begins at 10:00 AM with a brief discussion on the history and origin of Paella and dispelling a few myths about Paella.  Learn why Paella made at home is superior to what you find in many restaurants, what are the three basic principles of cuisine development,  how Paella originated in Spain,,, or DID IT?  Then the class  develops a list of ingredients for their Paella. We venture off into the village of Torrox to purchase what will go into our Paella. Class experiences shopping directly with many different vendors in the village. We will also show a few highlights of Torrox Pueblo along with a tour of the Olive Co-op with a wine tasting. Upon our return, we begin preparing our Paella. The group then sits down together for a lunch of home-made Sangria, Sopa de Ajo Blanco, Ensalada, your Paella and home-made flan. Your class ends at approximately 16:30.  This is a perfect class for "foodies" here in Spain or visiting the area.
4 Spaces available on Thursday July 7th  and  4 Spaces available Wednesday July 13th
Price includes all materials, supplies, booklet, instruction, tour, tastings and lunch with wine 50 € per person. For reservations or inquiries email casa-cebadillas at spain-vacation-holiday dot com or phone 627 168 943

I presume this is already known to some people....
If you park your car near to Torre Del Mar police station, the remote
control of some cars is blanked out by the police radio. It happened to my
Jeep Grand Cherokee yesterday. It has happened to other car owners, I also
found out yesterday. Some have called a garage and paid for a tow truck! If
at any time, anywhere, your remote will not lock your car, get back in
quickly and start the engine. Do this before the anti theft unit times out
and locks you out electronically. You can still use your key to lock and
unlock the doors but you won't be able to start the engine. My Jeep gives me
about 2 minutes. Drive a short distance away and try again. If you are not
quick enough you can push your car a short distance to get away from the
problem. It could be a couple of hundred meters. Round a corner. With no
power steering or servo assisted brakes!

Good luck.

Ball shaped gas bottles

We have two ball shaped little butano bottles (empty) which we bought to use
in a gas heater. They are also the kind used with barbecues. These have
been superseded by the new lightweight K6 bottle and can be exchanged for
K6's in any Repsol Garage. If you have bought yourself a barbecue don't
take out a contract with Repsol when you can buy from me for 10 euros each!

My numbers are 952534628 or 622586228.
