Kittens need new home

These kittens were found in a shed at a building job my husband was doing and the owners wanted them gone.
We have geen caring for them over the past three weeks.
They are friendly although still a bit skittish, eat and play well.
Two female and one male, obviously not been vaccinated as they are very young.
They have been de-fleaed.
If you are interested please email smickey827@hotmail.com.  thank you!

Re Complaint. A Warning

Editor writes:-
I was asked for the contact details of a person who replied to this gentleman's complaint on Digame.  I was unable to find tham as I delete data the same day - to keep my computer sane.!
However, there was a happier ending to the complaint against Renault  Ls Vega.
Proving that Perseverance is everything!   Jane
Read on ......
 Well Jane, l find this most upsetting, you must have noticed thenumber of people sending me some advice on Complaints, as opposed to'Mick' who has told a lot of nonsense and no facts from, presumably,someone at Renault La Vega?  I have all the facts and l have seen and had official confirmation on every step of the way.
At the beginning,5th May, my wife and I were virtual prisoners in the office of Renault La Vega, they 'supposedly misplaced' our car key' so that we could not leave their premises!
 In retrospect, l should have made that in to a Complaint !
 One week last Wednesday? I spoke with the Police in Comares town hall and they phoned Renault La Vega and asked someone there about the whereabouts of my Complaint, the answer was that theycould not find it, within two or three minutes they rang back to say
that l had not made a complaint,  then again they said they were looking for it! 
Our advice from the Police was that we should go to their office and make another official complaint. 
So the following day we did visit Renault La Vega and we were seen by a woman, named (?) who was fluent with English, for which l complimented her and asked where she learned our language, her answer was " Cambridge University for 8 months".
(Jane, l am putting all this down so you will, or must, know how much time and labour l have put in to this problem !)
To continue, ( ?) then gave us the(missing complaint)!, that they could not find and which l had not made! 
She then brought us a new set of 3 sheets of a complaint form, and then helped us to fill it in,
which we did then (?) put the official stamp on all 3 copies, they
kept one and we took one to the Office for Complaints in C/ Del Rio, Velez Malaga which they stamped their copy and ours. 
This is now inTthe System!  
All this because Renault La Viga sold us a faulty car,!
In retrospect, l must now try to get in touch, privately, with the people who are interested in this business and send them the truth of the matter!
        Norman.

Warning to those Renting out Villas etc

A friend of ours is renting a villa for a week in the campo between Competa and Torrox
There are just the two of them, mother and daughter, and arrived last Thursday.
On Sunday morning a Spanish guy turned up telling them that he was the gardener and was here to water the plants, which he proceeded to do.
As it turned out, after contacting the owner, this was all above board and the gardener was doing as asked.
However, with the spate of burglaries in the area, it would have been sensible if the owners had forewarned them that someone would be coming to attend the garden or swimming pool during their stay, thus alleviating any worry that the person may not be legitimate, and that they were not just casing out the villa in order to rob them during their stay.
A simple note in the villa explaining this would suffice.
Steve.

Advice re advertising holiday home:-

I too am not keen on the new Owners Direct website but my bookings have gone up since its launch!
 I'm now booked for the remainder of this year and well into summer 2016.
 I assume my enquiries for this year have now dried up as I keep my calendar completely up to date.
I'll therefore be renewing with Owners Direct despite the new un-user friendly site :)

A Kamado ceramic grill

I am buying a new BBQ pit.  A Kamado ceramic grill. 
They go back about 3000 years in China. 
They are becoming very popular in the US by a company called Big Green Egg. 
Here is the website that shows the sizes that are available in the US.
http://www.biggreenegg.com/eggs/sizes/
 the large, 18.5 inch grill is 1166 Euro plus the stand, etc.  IVA is not included.  Almost 2,000 Euro when you are done.  CRAZY.
If anyone wants to join me in buying direct from China at a greatly reduced price please press the <Continued> prompt

Seeking cyclist partner.

Hi everyone. 
I am cycling "The Santiago Way", in three weeks more or less,  being more accurate, the North Way.
I am thinking to start my adventure in Bilbao, but the schedule could be change.
My purpose is to reach Santiago de Compostela at about 10 stages.
Meanwhile during the journey we could do sightseeing. 
I am cycling twice or three times a week in order to be fit, so if someone want to join together to this adventure or at least cycling with me and help me to arrive at Santiago de Compostela send me a e-mail to dipilidos@hotmail.com or 610661194.
The area where I usually ride my bike is Torrox and surroundings.
Thanks a lot
Diego.

Advice on the Singer Sewing Machine:
I would suggest the easiest thing to do is to go to a locksmith who could open it easily with no damage.
 I think a key would be difficult to find, but maybe the locksmith could find one that works.
There are a couple of locksmiths according to Google in Nerja -- no idea if they could help but would be worth a try :-

DashCams

Please don't crash your vehicle whipping your camera/phone out to take a pic of someone flipping a dog-end out their car window.... get a dashcam,
you could make a fortune on YouTube.
Actually, if a cop sees you with a phone in your hand, you're in trouble, whatever the reason!
Some tichy camers look like phones, have you tried explaning to a Guardia Civil Trafico after the event?
Regarding dashcams, I have an ongoing 'debate' with dashcam suppliers and manufacturers in that they are not generally good enough to capture the number plate of a vehicle you are overtaking or one that is overtaking you unless the speed difference is very low, the light is very good and the angle is not too great.

Beautiful Bella


Bella is a beautiful dog that I rescued from the streets of my village.
Unfortunately I cannot keep her.
She is fully vaccinated, spayed and up to date with all her injections and is 3 years old.
She loves cuddles and is an obedient and very loving dog.
She would make someone a lovely faithful pet. 
phone no. Is 667010632

Missing Foxy Dog is back !

Thank you very much for putting Foxy in your blog. Even though the foto appeared on another add.
Maybe someone now wants to adopt Foxy 😄😉
It really was not funny and took us 2 days to find her in some vineyards of a neighbour. Now she is fine, drinking a lot and resting.

Yoigi Mobiles - Responses

(1)
If you do choose Yoigo Mobile avoid their shop in Velz Malaga !!!
The Manager was so rude to my wife that she returned home in tears –
When I confronted him, he refused to provide a 'complaint form' and I finished up with an apology from their Head Office in Madrid.
A most despicable character – if he is still there!!!
Further information: johnnerdingatlawyerdotcom
(2)
I have used Yoigo for the past 6 years and I am very pleased with it having
ust upgraded to a smart phone with a contract for the next 2 years.
I live in Competa and get a very good reception.
Linda
(3)
We were with Yoigo for about 3 years until last year.
We changed to them from Vodafone partly to save money and partly because I was fed up with trying to speak to their Customer Service staff, hundreds of whom worked out of an aircraft hanger (or some such) in Argentina. 
We were then with Movistar for landline and ADSL.
Actually we are back with Vodafone again now, having changed back because they had a good package deal on offer for all three - mobiles, landline & internet.  
They seem to have made efforts to improve their service.
I get to speak to one person at a time on a clear line and with no intrusive background voices.
As far as Yoigo themselves go, we never had any problems when we were with them, although the Customer Service staff only spoke Castellano. 
That may have changed now.  That would be a problem for some people.
Only you know your language abilities!
Regards,
Linda

Sewage Warning

Watch out Digamites -
I witnessed the most dreadful sewage slick arriving on Burriana beach at around 6.30 Friday  evening. Regrettably no doubt about its provenance as complete with rubber and sanitary ware!
New sewage works can't come too soon and hopefully system will better managed through summer when children and grandchildren are around.

Recommendation......

You must go to El Ingenio to see the Plastic History exhibition.. its great. 
Fifteen glass boxes with tableaux made out of modelling clay depicting the history of humanity, Stone Age, Romans, the World Wars, everything. 
The little figures are hilarious, like cartoons in three dimensions, so funny I stood and laughed out loud. 
Sales are on, too.

Recommendations for Dentist

I highly recommend Dr. Gustavo Gonzalez Ruis at Ricon Clinic, Torre del Mar.
Having boxed for fifteen years, played Rugby for twenty five I have had (private) dental treatment in UK, USA, Budepest and the best I have ever received is from Gustavo.
He speaks English, uses all the very best equipment & materials with the added bonus, that if you pay on UK Visa you also have the discount of the exchange rate.
In addition, I think I have saved 50% on the quotation I had in Budapest from the German Dentist 
I usually use with the added advantage of not having to 'fly & hotel anywhere' !!
Happy to explain more if you wish to contact me on
johnnerdingatlawyerdotcom.

Spititual Counseling & Healing......Healer in Costa del Sol offers home visits

My name is Maria Erving and I do spiritual work such as counseling and healing (and more, please see website for more information about my services).

I'm currently located in Torrox and Benafaraje and are offering home visits to individuals here in Costa del Sol.

Healing can help anyone that has physical, mental, emotional or spiritual issues or it can be received simply for the sake of the desire for inner growth and for increasing mental, emotional and spiritual clarity and well-being.

It also creates deep relaxation and aids the body to release stress and tension as well as helps cleaning and cleansing the body from toxins.
A hands-on healing session is approximately 60-90 minutes long, it varies since I work intuitively.
When we meet we'll have a brief conversation before and after the session as well
and so the 60-90 minute session time begins when I start the actual healing session.
Healing session: 50€
A private spiritual guidance/counseling session is an hour long and it's 50€ as well.
And a combined session (healing and counseling) is 100€ and two to two and a half hours long.
I can meet with you at your home, place of business, or wherever you are most comfortable.
