Torrox football -we're at home again Sun 6th Nov

¡hola! More fun and games at the match on Sunday (30.10). First it kicked off at 17.30 despite my posters saying 17.00 on supposedly good advice - apologies to all who got there early!. Second, many thanks to all who did come & hopefully enjoyed a good match. Third, we were winning 4-1 (against the top team who hadn't lost) when the linesman flagged their 2nd goal but the referee allowed it - DUH??. Fourth, nobody is quite sure what happened but there was an altercation between Torrox fans & the opposition goalie (& Indi wasn't there so dont blame him!) & the match was suspended with 10 mins left ... BUT according to the internet site for the league the result stands at 4 - 2. We're still 6th but only 4 points separate top 6 ... and we're playing 4th team on SUNDAY 6.11 AT 16.30. The president assures me this is right info this time! COME & SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL TEAM!!

Local Author on Talk Radio on Thursday 3rd November

Torrox resident Wendy Cartmell has just published her crime novel Steps to Heaven in eBook format. This is the first book in the Sgt Major Crane series. Crane is a Special Investigations Branch Detective in the British Army, based at Aldershot Garrison. Crane is disturbed by the horrific case of a soldier called Solomon who, after recently returning from Afghanistan, murdered his wife and 6 year old son and then committed suicide. It seems Solomon was attending a local Church, which encourages people to join by offering salvation to its members. But as Crane investigates and the body count rises, events take a darker turn and he wonders what the Church is offering - salvation, or slaughter?
Wendy is appearing on Talk Radio Europe during the Hannah Murray Book Programme on Thursday 3rd November at approx. 3.45 to discuss her book and the eBook publishing process. Talk Radio can be found on 88.9fm.

In Spain download for $3.67 from Steps to Heaven

Wanted Vintage Swan Space Saver Saucepan

Many years ago I used to have a ´Swan´ brand space saver saucepan
(1960/70´s) consisted of three separate triangular pans that butted
together, thus you could have three separate things cooking on one burner,
included in the set was also a sturdy detachable handle which slotted into
each pan allowing them to be moved independently when required. I have
searched everywhere for something similar but without any luck (there was
also a double space saver version which was the equivalent of a saucepan in
two halves).

I am looking for either...perhaps someone has one them tucked away in a
garage or loft....if anyone can help please call..628 599 655.

Thank you.

Stolen Laptop

On Friday Night a laptop (among other things) was stolen from Los Amigos
Bar on Torrox Park.
This now means that a couple are out of business as that laptop contained
all their music/downloads to be able to offer their services to bars in the
Maybe those responsible did not realise that this was not the property of
the owners of the bar and did not realise just what a catastrophic disaster
this has created for that couple who have worked tirelessly for charity
events giving their time freely.
It would be superb if this laptop could be recovered or even just the hard

Book Signing at Los Amigos

I will be selling and signing my books at Los Amigos Table Top Sale on
Saturday 5th November. I have quite a few "Not Joined Up"s for sale at 8
euros and a couple of "Leaving England"s (10 euros). If you have already
bought a book then why not get it signed, and if you enjoyed it please
remember to put a review on Amazon or Facebook or even Digame! Reviews are
very important to authors as they can get them noticed. Those of you with a
Kindle please note that both of these books are available to download.

Leaving England concerns our move from Northampton to Cornwall where we ran
a small B & B, and Not Joined Up is a novel based in a fictional seaside
town on the Costa del Sol. Both books are amusing and an easy read. They
make great Christmas presents.

Please come along to Torrox Park on Saturday morning and have a look round
the stalls. If anyone wants to buy a book but can't get along on Saturday
you can contact me by email,

Thursday, 27 October 2011


A lot of emails are coming in to me with really big pictures straight from the cameras of the people taking the pictures.  These can be anything from 1 to 7 megabytes.
I cannot use such big pictures, so I have to ask the sender to resend with smaller pictures of at most 200kb.
This is taking a lot of my time and I am not feeling very well this week!
So .. please reduce the size of the photos you attach to your emails. 
If you don't know how to do this, then don't bother attaching photos to your adverts
Example Tools that will reduce photo size for you are
Picasa - from Google, easy to use and free to download. instructions are here
choose about 600 to 800 pixels for the size option and automatic for the quality.
Don't add a watermark.
Microsoft office picture manager – click on resize under picture option, resize to about 20%, ( then use "Save as" to save the picture without overwriting the original.)
Paint - comes free with windows – choose the resize option and choose percentage set to 20 ( then use "Save as" to save the picture without overwriting the original.)
Other options exist, but if you own them, I imagine you would know how to use them
Thank you.

The Wealth Tax is back!

My husband went to a tax seminar given by Blevins Franks today and he was
told that the Wealth Tax has been temporarily reintroduced at the same rate
it was at before the reduction to zero per cent. The good news is that
everybody will have the first €700,000 of their wealth ignored. The bad
news is that you cannot submit a return yourself, it has to be done by an
official recognised by the Spanish Tax authorities. I am not sure if you
have to put a return in, even if you are not going to have to pay any tax.
Will come back if I find out any more details, but if someone knows for sure
we ALL HAVE TO submit a return, please let me know on mariordan at aol dot
com. Thanks.

tapas available as well! carolemhart at


Bernie on Should I go to Specsavers?
Specsavers in Fuengirola are great - I got a pair of reflectolite varifocals  with pretty good frames there for less than the price of ordinary varifocal  lenses (without the reactolite or anti scratch treatment) that a local optician quoted me, so am very happy with them. The service is similar to that in the UK, you could phone ahead and make an appointment with the optician for the eye test, then have a nice trip to Fuengirola, do a bit of shopping, lunch overlooking the beach, etc. It took about 2 weeks to get the glasses made up, but they give you a date to return and when I got stuck in traffic for my appointment they were on the phone to check I hadn't forgotten. Can't say much fairer than that, the staff are all very attentive and bilingual, I'm glad I went to Specsavers ... and no, they haven't paid me to say it.
Several responses to Traffic Police in Sedella
Bernie said...
Today I read in Digame a message headed "Traffic Police in and Around Sedella" This person highlights his annoyance about the actions of the traffic police and requests we notify others of their road checks.  I am personally fully in favour of what the police are doing. i.e.:- Checking for illegal vehicles, Checking insurances, Checking the seat belts.  Perhaps this person would not mind if his vehicle was wrecked by an uninsured driver. Seat belts are there for our protection and idiots who drive without them should be penalised. Why then ask us to protect them. Many Brits come to live in Spain with their GB cars and make no effort to have them put on Spanish plates, to tax them, to put them through the ITV test, or insure them. Check the parked cars outside any school and you will find an illegal one I'm sure. These people are not short time visitors and should like the majority of us comply with the laws of the land we are privileged to live
in. I sincerely hope that the police will continue and intensify these roadside checks because only the guilty have need for concern.
Albert said...
Lets hope the police catch these people that drive around with no tax, ITV/MOT because if you are unfortunate to have an accident with these people you will find their insurance, if they have any, will be invalid and your no claims will be lost as you will have to claim of your own insurance. There are far too many people (non Spanish) that don't think they are part of the
system and continue to drive non Spanish registered vehicles with no regard for the basic legalities of motoring. I have a Spanish friend who had an accident with a non Spanish vehicle that was not insured and no valid, in date MOT/ITV and a year later he is still trying to claim damages for injury, medical expenses, loss of earnings and vehicle repair. To the tune of over 7,000 euros.
The police have let this happen for too long. I say shop the culprits. It's a joke, people collecting children from school, so they must live here, in non Spanish registered cars.
Lee said...
I can confirm that the police are targeting foreign registered vehicles. I have had two friends who have been caught driving their vehicles without Tax/MOT etc, one had their vehicle impounded immediately and had to pay over 1000 Euros to get it back, the other had to go to the main traffic office in Malaga with all his paperwork and was given the choice of removing the
vehicle out of the country or registering it on Spanish plates.
Be warned that the police are fully aware that your vehicle must display a valid Tax Disc and have a UK MOT, an ITV is totally useless and invalid, although ITV stations will happily take your money! Also they are asking for proof of the date that the car entered the country and if it is over six months the car will be impounded until you have paid the fine and registered it onto Spanish plates.
So if you do not have all the following with you will be in trouble:
V5 Document (Log book)
Driving Licence
Valid Tax Disc
Valid MOT (If applicable)
Certificate of Insurance
(These documents must be carried in the vehicle at all times by law)
The town halls are desperately short of money and illegal vehicles is an easy way of topping up the coffers! Be Warned!
Gerald said...
Why do you want people to be aware of these police checks? People should not be driving with a car without ITV/MOT and insurance. When there is an accident, the other person is the victim if the car is not insured. Let them be caught and these cars be taken from the road, or they should be forced to get proper insurance. It is so selfish and short sighted to `warn people`

The Importance of Pet ID

For those of you who have experienced the anxiety and heartbreak when your
pet goes missing you will know how important it is to make sure your dog/cat
has the proper ID/Tags.
Making sure your pet has visible ID tags is a cheap and effective way along
with micro-chipping that could make all the difference in your pets safe and
swift return.
Here in Spain it is the law that your pet should be micro-chipped and your
local vet can do this for you.

Fosterers/Helpers needed urgently.

Paws For Thought are getting calls on a daily basis about dogs living rough
in Almunecar and they don't have anywhere to place them. The dog warden
will take all the strays off the streets and gas them inhumanely just so the
streets look 'Cleaner'.

If you are able to foster some of these street dogs until Paws For Thought
can re-home then (which they are doing on a regular basis to Holland,
Belgium & Germany) then please get in contact with Jo or Linda and they will
be able to give you more information on what Fostering entails and find a
dog that will suit your circumstances as they have big ones, little ones,
long haired, short haired all waiting for a Foster placing.

All these dogs need is some love and attention and there is nothing more
rewarding knowing that you have helped save a dogs life and prepared him for
his or hers new 'Forever Home'.

Traffic police in/around Sedella

I have received this message from Bill Wilks and I agree that you should all
be aware that La Guardia Civil Trafico is checking up on vehicles in the
I have also been told that they are checking foreign registered cars for
insurance and the time the vehicle has been in Spain. Vehicles without ITV
or British MOT will also be at risk. Please tell all your friends.


I have been told this afternoon that the traffic police are targeting
various mountain villages to catch motorists committing any offences, not
wearing a seat belt seems to be the most common one. So I have been told
Sedella is the next village to be visited and the traffic police are due any
day now if not already here so belt up, take care and keep a keen lookout.

Please inform you friends and neighbours too.

News from the Boat

I regularly travel backwards and forwards to the UK in my van delivering
goods. On my last trip I was told by another driver that there has been a
spate of incidents involving British vehicles having their tyres punctured
and a "good Samaritan" then stops with 3 or 4 people in the car to help and
robs the occupant. They seem to be operating from the Shell service station
on the Palencia road about 5km from the port where a lot of brits stop to
fill up as it is the first service station on the motorway towards Burgos.
My friend was travelling in his van and noticed a couple of brit cars at the
side of the road changing tyres and when he stopped after 80km he found that
one of his tyres at the back also had a puncture but did not realise as this
was a twin wheel. He went to a tyre place where another brit car was having
a new tyre put on and told him how he had just been robbed.
Also on the same theme it seems that the bogus police are still operating
around Madrid as another driver had a car with 4 occupants pull alongside
flashing a supposed police badge and trying to get him to stop. He gestured
to them to go forth and multiply and they drove off. They are also using the
ruse of pulling alongside you and pointing to a "problem" at the back of
your car and when you ignore them they drive on and then another car pulls
alongside with the same message and if you stop you get robbed.

Should I go to Specsavers?

My husband is ready for new glasses and I wondered if anybody could
recommend a local optician with reasonable prices? We are considering going
to Specsavers in Fuengirola, but it means two trips down there. He has had
two sets of glasses since we've been here, one set from Nerja and one from
Malaga. In all, with prescription sunglasses as well it has cost the
equivalent of a very large Plasma screen TV. Although he can claim a
discount on his over 65 card it still costs a fortune, and special offers
never seem to apply to Varifocals (I think they are called progressivos in
Spanish, not graduados which I believe is what we would call Reflectolite.)
Any recommendations would be helpful. Also, if you have been to Specsavers
in Fuengirola, were they as good as in the UK?

Exhibition Bites The Dust

Brian Reifer rushed into Artenova Cafe/Bar last Saturday morning on a call
from the Proprietors to remove his paintings. The rental agreement with the
Spanish owner runs out at the end of October; Not a problem you would think.
However, with a horrendous rent hoist - Not negotiable apparently, the
German Proprietor's looked for other premises.

During the week the owner, in their absence, entered the premises and cut
off all the services effectively shutting them down three weeks in advance.
Cue for Brian to remove his paintings in the light (Or lack of) the owner's
Most of the paintings are now at Brian's home and may be viewed, together
with other paintings, by arrangement (Mobile 645406804) The address is :

Avda. de la Hispanidad 8-2-O: Velez Malaga.

The road is the other side of the park from the Tranvia terminus. (Grab a
last ride before it is closed on 31 October). Or, by road, Take the main
road Juan Carlos from Torre Del Mar. Turn left at the small roundabout just
after the Guardia Civil with the Repsol Garage on the corner.

Two small paintings have been placed with Tamisa Gallery, Mijas Pueblo.

Local Author Publishes eBook

Torrox resident Wendy Cartmell has just published her crime novel Steps to Heaven in eBook format. This is the first book in the Sgt Major Crane series.

Crane is a Special Investigations Branch Detective in the British Army, based at Aldershot Garrison. Crane is disturbed by the horrific case of a soldier called Solomon who, after recently returning from Afghanistan, murdered his wife and 6 year old son and then committed suicide. It seems Solomon was attending a local Church, which encourages people to join by offering salvation to its members. But as Crane investigates and the body count rises, events take a darker turn and he wonders what the Church is offering - salvation, or slaughter?

Support your local author by downloading it now from Amazon UK for under a £1. You don’t need a Kindle. The eBook is available in multiple formats and can even be downloaded to your computer.

In Spain download for $3.67 from Steps to Heaven
 or from smashwords for $1.99 (Smashwords doesn’t support Kindle).
In the UK download for 99p from Steps to Heaven

Social educators and families of disabled people.

I am a university teacher in the department of social education/pedagogy in Iceland and I will be living in Torrox pueblo from January till June 2012, working on my research on social education / pedagogy and its affect in social services. I would very much like to get in touch with professionals working in the field of learning disability and social inclusion in the area and talk to them about their work. I am also interested in meeting parents or siblings of disabled children or adults who would like to tell me their stories. I am collecting stories of all kinds and also appreciate stories sent on e-mail both from professionals and family members. My educational background is in social education,teaching and pedagogy, school- and vocational counselling and family therapy.  I do hope to hear from someone and look forward to come and live and work for a while in this beautiful part of Spain.
Best regards. Kristin Lilliendahl tel: +354 5666670
