Mobile speed trap

Folks! Please be aware of the occasional presence of a mobile speed trap
that I have now seen twice, located on the short road that runs between the
big roundabout (as you come off the motorway) at El Ingenio (Eroski) and the
roundabout where the nearby Repsol garage is located. It is the road that
runs north (inland) that is host to numerous large bill boards on the right
hand side. At the far end of this road is often parked an unmarked
Vauxhall/Opel astra with the BOOT OPEN - it hosts the equipment to catch us
motorists! You have been warned!

Torrox football update

Hola! We beat El Morche 2 - 0 and are now 5th (8 points behind leaders).
Still half the season to go so there's still possibilities! Something
entertaining always happens (last match was El Morche goalie sent off near
end presumably for getting involved in the inevitable fight that seems to
happen every derby!).

Next home match not til 15th Jan. Meanwhile thanks to all who have supported
us so far - and ¡FELICES FIESTAS! to all digamites.


PS looks like we didn't win the lottery but thanks also to all who bought
"El Gordo" tickets supporting the club

Watch out for another scam

Seems like a day never goes by without someone trying to have you over!

I received a 'missed call' on my 'phone earlier, and not checking the caller
id, re-dialled.

It was a 'message service', which, when getting home and doing some
research, I found was a premium rate 'phone service that once you dial in,
sends you an sms message and charges you for it, regularly!

And apparently it's legal.

I have 'phoned my service provider and barred all sms messages that cost
money, but apparently, they cannot bar the number.

The number is: 917 913 218.

But I would guess they use other numbers as well, so be careful of missed
calls with what could be a premium rate pre-fix.

Big thanks to Carol and an explanation for Digame virgins!

I would like to add my thanks to Carol who magically gels all the emails she
receives into the Digame email newsletter throughout the year. I think it
is fantastic that she carries on regardless, continuing the work started by
Sandra. Carol must receive loads of emails judging by the number of
editions of Digame that we receive - so there must be a lot of work
involved. We are always interested to read Digame whenever it drops into
our Inbox. We really appreciate knowing about what is happening locally -
items about events such as art exhibitions, talks, films, Xmas markets, etc.
Often local events don't seem to be that well publicised so Digame can be
the only way of finding out about something. Thank you to everyone who is
taking the time to pass on that information. And to all of you involved in
the Kindle debate - that exchange has been really interesting too!

It is so easy to contribute to Digame but until recently it was a mystery to
me. I found the information on the website and realised how easy it was!
Perhaps there are other Digame readers who are not 100% sure about how to
let Carol know about local information. Apologies to regular contributors
already - for you the following explanation will be like teaching your
Grandmother to suck eggs!!

The info on the website says that to contribute to Digame you have to:

send an email from the email address that receives Digame

send the email to digametorrox at hotmail dot co dot uk

write exactly what you would like to see published on Digame

write in the subject line of your email exactly what you would like to see
as the heading on Digame - not using block capitals

include contact details at the end of the email - either a phone number or
your email address.

Competa roundup or cull of feral cats and warning to pet owners to chip their animals

Hola, buenas.

Kate Morris and I founded the Canillias Animal Trust (CAT). I write asking
you to warn your readers to get their cat or dog chipped as soon as possible
to protect them.

Competa vets and Nina´s animal charity have confirmed that on 14 Dec., with
help from local police, provincial animal control netted about 10 feral cats
from the La Roca area.

On the same day, local police prevented a volunteer from feeding the feral
cats remaining at or near La Roca. It is now the policy of Competa that it
is unlawful to feed feral or stray dogs or cats in the village.

We urge pet owners to get their animals chipped as soon as possible. This is
the only legal protection you have against animal control culls. It is the
law authorities must check to see if an animal is chipped.

We do not know if they do this.

But if your pet is taken by them and is chipped, you can denounce them for
theft of your pet.

Our charity objects to this and supports coordinated efforts to see this
policy reversed.

Thank you.

Stefan van Drake

Fine terracotta floor tiles - help..

Hopefully someone out there knows where I can get 60sqm of the fine surface
terracotta floor tiles. They seem to be as rare as rocking horse dodo. The
rough ones can be picked up in pretty much any builders merchants you care
to visit. But the fine ones not so.

Need these asap as it's holding up the completion of a terrace and the only
option we have so far is to have some made, which will take 6 weeks. By
which time we will be in Cambodia or Thailand, can't remember which.

Preferably a source somewhere in the Malaga to Nerja region, but could go
further afield in they have what we need and can confirm before traveling.

Or maybe someone has a (large) pile of them knocking around that they would
like to make some money out of.

At a push I could get by with 25sqm now and 35sqm later

Here's hoping..............

Merry Christmas All Digamites!

'Twas the night before Christmas and on the computer
The usual Spam, the usual e's
And to my delight my favourite blog
Digame, Digame, information please!

Have you any lost dogs, any stray cats?
Are there cars for sale, gas bottles and mats?
Is there somebody out there who knows how to explain
How to get to Granada by bus and by train..
These puppies were dumped in a bin, and they're cute
There's a freezer for sale, and a smart dinner suit
There's a gig and a jam session, music galore
Presley, Neil Diamond, all the "stars" we adore.
Somebody needs help with a form that wants filling
And some men (not from Repsol) gas contracts are selling,
Beware the imposter, pickpocket and thief
Tell us your tales... Digame! save us from grief!

Merry Christmas all Digamites, and especially the Ed
Remember tonight when you are tucked in your bed
The days before Digame were not a delight
And to each and every one of you, good luck and goodnight.

Carole Hart (and I didn't mention the Kindle)

Thanks - ED

Kindle Konfusion

Okay, whilst I agree that this subject is going on a bit now, this is
because of confusion concerning the Kindle product range.

The link that the editor provided to the 99 Euro version is NOT the product
that we have been discussing here, this is the cheaper Kindle which is
simply an e-book reader with Wi-Fi, the dearer Kindle is the 3G model which
does not need an Internet connection at all, it downloads from the mobile
'phone network, the connection is free for life and is built in the purchase
price, therefore you can download books from anywhere in the world, it also
has a keyboard and still has Wi-Fi as well.

So you can see that it is a very different item.

I hope that this clarifies the subject for all those people who were,
perhaps, not totally sure of the differences and yes I am a bit of a techie!

Kindle Saga

Further to my post regarding the shipment of these from, Amazon now have available export only models which can be delivered worldwide.  These work out at £187.36, which is made up of the Kindle 3G £125.36, delivery £13.92 and import fees deposit £48.08.
As previously stated you cannot get around the import fees now as they have to paid at source when you order from Amazon.
They are available from for £149.00 with free delivery to UK or Spain.
I hope this clarifies this topic a bit further.

Note from Editor – I'm getting bored with this now.  Why don't you all just buy your Kindles from the Spanish Amazon site for 99 Euro and get a two year guarantee instead of the measly one year that you get from the American or UK sites?  A bit of a no brainer if you ask me.

Kindle Kapers

Oh, dear, what a mix up! I was certain that you could not use a Kindle
purchased in UK over here, as someone told me this previously. Apparently
not, several people say this works OK. As for buying one from as
per advised on website, I bought mine that way, it was shipped here with no
problems and I'm sure I didn't pay for shipping or tax either, I certainly
would have noticed on my credit card statement. Sorry for any confusion, I
blame Amazon, not the easiest of web sites to get your head round, it seems
to be different every time you look at it! Anyway glad that more and more
Kindle users around as I will have a new book coming out soon for Kindle

CAMPO Donation to CAT

Canillas Animal Trust wish to heartily thank CAMPO for the wonderful donation of cat food which we collected this morning.
This food will allow C.A.T. to spay and neuter more feral cats in the near future. So for the time being we can use all the money made on Saturday mornings at Competa market on these operations which are desperately needed. We have about 6 ferals awaiting operations at the present time.
What a great Christmas gift this donation has been for these animals.
Please support us because if everyone who passed our stall only spent one euro on a card or book or bookmark it would make a great difference. Every euro goes to the cats as we have no premises to pay for or other expenses.
All our goods are either hand made or donated.
Once again thank you CAMPO for your wonderful donation and good luck and success in all your future productions.
A very Merry Christmas to all the Friends of C.A.T. And a happy and healthy 2012 to you all.
Kate Morris C.A.T.

Amazon and Kindle

lots of replies going on here :

With regards to the previous article about purchasing a Kindle from not, will NOT deliver this product outside of the Continental US, you have to have a US delivery address. Certain other products can be delivered to the EU no problem, but be aware of the following:The shipping cost alone can be quite prohibitive.If the item is over 18 Dollars in value you WILL pay import and duty tax when it enters Spain (I paid 28 Euros on an item worth 100 Dollars). There is no import duty if the item is sent from within the EU.Electrical appliances are usually 110V and will not work in Europe. I have used,, and quite extensively and have come across most of the pitfalls and advantages of using all the different companies.In short, try to use EU based companies so that you will not incur any additional taxes or fees. If anyone would like any advice or help on anything mentioned here please do not hesitate to contact me. Lee at dantis dot co dot uk Merry Christmas

The response about not buying a Kindle from is incorrect. I bought my Kindle from Tesco and use all the time to download books without any problem. It is not a 3G model but you don't need that version unless you really want to download books whilst out and about. J Tyler Competa

I saw this article today and wish to clarify a point of fact for those that are considering buying a Kindle in the UK. They do work in Spain and I have used mine for a year with no trouble downloading books from the UK site.

Kindle ... You can buy your Kindle in UK from Amazon ... free UK then have it posted to you .it cost my daughter 2pound 50 to send to me in Spain I purchased 1500 good books on cd off e.bay 6 pounds including postage. pmdcompetaatyahoocouk

Broken Kindle

Would the person who wrote about trying to find a replacement Kindle be
careful about buying in the UK (i.e. as when it is used in
Spain they will not be able to download from the UK site. You should buy it
from if you want to download books in this country. We have
covered this point before on Digame, and as far as I am aware nothing has
changed in this case. It really is no problem getting it from,
the only difference being that you will pay in US dollars which will be
converted by your credit card. To save money why not buy the new cheaper
version, not the 3G version. You only need the 3G if you want to buy books
when you are out and about, it is no problem buying them in your own home on
the cheaper version.

I thought that people should be made aware that between Monday and Wednesday
this week at least 6 unoccupied houses situated near km 12 A7207 Montealegre
area Torrox Campo were broken into. There may be others as yet undiscovered.
It is not known exactly what has been taken as all the owners are in their
home countries but it is believed a flat screen TV was taken from one of the
houses. Entry was by forcing the rejas and window or door and climbing
through. The burglar/s must be very slim (because of the very small gap) and
agile as in one case a 2m wire fence or gate was climbed over.

Jigsaw Puzzles Wanted

We have my wife's parents coming to stay over Xmas and New Year and they
love jigsaw puzzles. I need something for them to do whilst I watch all the
festive sport!

They seem to be quite expensive over here brand new and unlike in the UK not
freely available in charity shops.

They like 1,000 piece (minimum) adult theme, scenery, villages, etc or
WASGIJ type puzzles.

Does anyone have any of these type puzzles they no longer want?

Rather than pay for them I would prefer to make a donation to CAS for each
one, as we have just adopted a cat from them.

Many thanks from Lee, I can be contacted on 951 23 28 89 (home), 620 44 34

Casper....a lost dog!!

Hi there

I wonder please if you could put out a plea for any info. anyone MAY have
regarding Casper,a one eyed liver brown & white pointer type dog who escaped
out of the window of his owners van in the Eroski car park on 22nd November.
He is micro-chipped and was wearing a collar,a couple of flea collars & his
lead (which may well be gone by now).

He was shot in the face earlier this year (before being rescued ) and so has
had to have an eye removed and stitched up.Never the less.....he is a
handsome dog.
He is extremely timid and therefor probably impossible to catch....but if
anyone has seen him,or thinks they MAY have seen him....then his owner will
get on to it straight away.

I have a lot of photos on FB regarding him,but am such a klutz that I'm
sorry but I don't know how to put them onto email.I tried to no avail to put
them onto Digame FB....but they were not accepted!

A plea for info would be a great help though...even just using the

I thank you sincerely for any help you can give.

Yours faithfully,Sandra Campbell....... (who rescued him when he was
shot,and am now trying to give his owner support to re-unite with him!!)

For sale written off Smart Fortwo Passion for spares/repair

I have, err had a 2006 Smart Fortwo Passion with only 32,000Km on the clock.
Sadly while it was parked at Malaga airport a 5 metre high block wall
collapsed on to it. Obviously this caused more than a few dents to the
bodywork. The insurance company have now written it off and offered me the
opportunity to keep the wreckage to rebuild or sell for spares.

Would anybody be interested in purchasing the car for spares. All the
mechanicals were in perfect working order and there's no reason that they
still shouldn't be as the bodywork and glass took
all the damage.

Seems a shame just to wheel it off to the scrap yard when there are many
useable parts. And I may recover some of the difference between the trade
price the insurance company has offered in
settlement and the real price that I will have to pay to get a like for like
replacement for Matilda...
