CUDECA Donation

A huge thank you from Paul Tempany to all those who came along to the "How Long Have You Been Rocking in Spain?" Summer Party with Guiri Andaluz and Geoff Murrell Alberdini on Saturday July 28th. It was Paul's wish that a donation to charity be made in lieu of a birthday present so two CUDECA tins were passed around Paul's guests . I believe other diners were also approached by our young helpers on the night Lauren Sykes (our granddaughter) & Katy McDougal so thank you to them for their support and generous donations.

The following letter was received from CUDECA -

old Spanish Railway Posters

As a railway enthusiast who is presenting a PowerPoint / lecture on the
former railway that ran from Malaga via Torre del Mar to Ventas de Zeffaraya
to the Nerja Historical Society in December. Does anyone know of a company
based in Spain who either produces or sells reprints of old Spanish Railway
Posters. It would have to be reprints as I am not in the market for
originals due to the price that dealers quote.

Molly has been missing from Cortijo Romero, Puente de Don Manuel, Vinuela
since last Tuesday, the 21st August.
You may remember her being around Gilly's Carousel shop at Vinuela Pueblo.

She is very friendly and will go up to anyone that talks to her. You can
pick her up, she won't struggle.
She's not a lap cat but she will 'make dough' on your knee if you're kind to
She has a sore tum, the Vet thinks it's scar tissue from the spay operation.
If you hurt her tum she will nip you fairly hard. I don't think she would be
good with children.
She has gone for a couple of days twice before, she wasn't hungry when she
came back??
She has been all vaccinated, de-wormed, de-flea'd, de-ticked, is chipped and
has a passport.
We want her home.... please.

Bath restorer needed

The only gentleman that replied to my earlier advert, advised me that he
could do it, but that he was currently on holiday, away from the area. He
said that if I could get a few more people wanting their baths doing, he
would do a discount price for several being done at the same time. In the
meantime, several people who wanted the same work doing, had contacted me,
so my advert had generated more than one job for this guy. I had retained
all these contact details for when he returned.
He has now returned and contacted me and realised that my advert was for
restoring a porcelain / enamel bath. He only restores acrylic ones.
So I, and a few other people, were hoping to maybe be lucky and catch
someone who did not see my first request.

so ...

Does anyone know of a bath restorer in this area (Nerja-Torre)?
Our porcelain bath is in perfect working order and we really don't want to
replace it but it has lost its shiny look! The floor has become dull and now
has a matt finish. It needs re-enamelling with a glossy new top coat!
I know there is a "Bathdoctor" west of Marbella, but in order to make the
job economically viable, both for the customer and himself, he prefers to
have more than one job in a day in an area to travel to.
Does anyone else in the Nerja area
a) Need their bath refurbished? or
b) Does anyone know of a "man than can do" in this area? or
c) Know of a good quality DIY product on the market that fits the job?

Vueling Customer Service, or the lack thereof.

cannot email them. You cannot fax them. They only have one number, a 807
number that doesn't work on my mobile, doesn't work on my friends' mobile,
and doesn't work at two internet cafe's in town.

As I will be travelling soon, it is of the essence I make the reservation
quickly. Any suggestions as how to go about it ? Maybe I can use someone's
