Well as we thought it’s been a very hot August with the air conditioning working overtime. September has arrived and hopefully along with it those cooler nights ‘we hope’. So welcome to the September edition of Costa Link Magazine. In this month’s issue, catch up on some of the gossip with the new X-factor. Look out for the ever so indulgent baked summer fruits dessert, and check out the ‘What’s On’ guide. It’s a busy month for entertainment, with the ‘Yankee Blues Brothers’ and ‘Michael Jackson Tributes’ on the Costa, and on the 25th there’s a local business ‘Showcase Exhibition and Raffle’ at Vista Del Mar, we will be there so come down and say ‘hello’, remember it’s all in the ‘What’s On’ page’s 40 & 46. Thanks for all the great emails and comments we have had about last month’s issue, we really pleased you all enjoyed it. Finally just to remind you it’s Halloween next month, and only four months counting September to Christmas, it will soon be here given how fast the rest of this year seems to have flown past. So a note to all our advertisers to start thinking about your Halloween and Christmas marketing, so give us a call or come down to the ‘Showcase’ to discuss it. Keep smiling and have a great month!

Cold Shoulder for Kerry Katona - Kerry Katona has been sacked by Iceland following the latest drug revelations. Iceland made the decision after Kerry was secretly filmed snorting what was thought to be cocaine in her bathroom at home. The supermarket giant are terrified that the most recent scandal will discourage customers from shopping at their stores, so they’re given the 28 year-old the boot, meaning that she will be a whopping £250,000 worse off a year. Kerry is said to be inconsolable at losing the money-spinning deal after being the face of the chain of stores for four years. A source close to the star said, “This is an absolute body-blow.”

Cleared of Touching A Truncheon - We’re equally and amused and annoyed by the news that former Big Brother star Carole Ann Vincent was yesterday cleared of, err, stealing a policeman’s truncheon. The 55 year-old was accused of nicking the stick at an anti-war demonstration that was held in London last year. The BB8 contestant denied the charge and was backed in her bid to be let off by Labour politician Tony Benn, who said yesterday: “It would have been a gross injustice if she had been sentenced.” While we’re very pleased that Carole was let off the ridiculous charge, surely the courts have far better things to do than spend fortunes taking cases like this to trial?

Bookies back Cheryl on X Factor Cheryl Cole is being backed by the bookies to win The X Factor again this year. The Girls Aloud star, who was the victor last year when she mentored winner Alexandra Burke, is heading up the under 25 boys this year. Ladbroke’s make the 26 year-old 2/1 to win, while Simon Cowell is second favourite at 9/4. Dannii is in third position at 9/4, while Louis is in last place with 10/3. However, Cheryl has said she will ditched her nice girl image in a bid to get nasty for the new series of ‘X Factor’. The last series saw the Girls Aloud singer blub her away through many emotional moments on the hit ITV reality show.

Jordan bans, er, Jordan Jordan has banned Peter Andre from calling her by her ‘stage’ name. Instead her estranged husband must refer to her as her real name, Katie Price, at all times. The 31 year-old made Pete take out any reference to Jordan in his documentary, Going It Alone, which aired on ITV2 on the 17th Sept because it might be deemed to be derogatory. Katie, who made her name as glamour model Jordan, also banned Pete from showing any footage of her son, Harvey, during the hour and a half programme, while an abusive phone conversation was also censored. The entire show had to be re-edited and a new voiceover recorded to fit in with Katie’s demands. Three words Katie/Jordan/whoever you are – get over yourself.

depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but ever since I gave him the ultimatum he has become increasingly distant. I don’t feel I can get through to him anymore. Can you please help?... Sincerely, Mrs. Sheila Fox. Dear Sheila, A car stalling after being driven a short distance can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the jubilee clips holding the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it could be that the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor float chamber. I hope this helps... Sincerely, Walter.

Dear Walter, I hope you can help me here. The other day I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn’t gone more than a mile down the road when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back home to get my husband’s help. When I got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in the bedroom with a neighbour lady making passionate love to her. I am 32, my husband is 34 and we have been married for twelve years. When I confronted him, he broke down and admitted that he’d been having an affair for the past six months. I told him to stop or I would leave him. He was let go from his job six months ago and he says he has been feeling increasingly

by simply lighting your next fag from the butt of your last one. 6. Old telephone directories make ideal personal address books, simply cross out the names and address of people you don’t know. 7. Save electricity by shortening the cables to all your household electric appliances. 8. Drivers, save money by putting much larger wheels on the back of your car. That way you will always be going downhill, thereby saving on fuel. 9. Save a fortune on laundry bills. Give your dirty shirts to Oxfam, they will wash and iron them and you can buy them back for fifty pence. 9. Old people, if you feel cold indoors this winter, simply pop outside for ten minutes without a coat, when you go back inside you will really feel the benefit.

Are you feeling the effects of the financial crisis, follow our top tips...1. Do not waste money on expensive ipods. Simply think of your favourite tune and hum it. If you want to “switch tracks”, simply think of another song you like and hum that instead. 2. Do not waste money on expensive paper shredders to avoid having your identity stolen. Simply place a few dog turds in the bin bags along with your old bank statements. 3.Don’t buy expensive ‘ribbed’ condoms, just buy an ordinary one and slipa handful of frozen peas inside it before you put it on. 4. Save money on expensive personalised car number plates by simply changing your name to match your existing plate. - Mr. KVL 741Y. 5. Smokers, save on matches and lighters,

This went on for about twenty minutes, and you can see the result in the picture.The more Eddie insulted him, the more tickets the traffic warden wrote out and slapped on the windscreen.

Eddie went out to buy a paper, and he was only gone for about three minutes. When he came out of the shop, there was a traffic warden writing out a parking ticket. The car was on a double yellow lines. Eddie approached the warden and said smiling, “Give me a break, I was only away a minute.” The warden just carried on writing out the parking ticket and completely ignored Eddie’s plea. Eddie, rather angry at being so openly ignored, called the warden, ‘A goose-stepping Nazi.’ The warden glared at Eddie and started writing another parking ticket, this time for having a smooth tyre. Eddie called him an even ruder name. The traffic warden finished the second ticket and put it on the windscreen alongside the first. Then he

A blonde walks into a bank in London and asks to see the manager. She says she’s going to Hong Kong on business for two weeks and needs to borrow £5,000. The manager says the bank will need some kind of security for the loan, so the blonde hands over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car is parked on the street in front of the bank, she has the car registration and everything checks out. The bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. The manager and the tellers all enjoy a good laugh at the blonde for using a £200,000 Ferrari

What does he think this place is, an auto parts store?” “No,” the cook said. “Three flat tires mean three pancakes, a pair of headlights is two eggs sunny side up, and running boards are two slices of crisp bacon.” “Oh, OK!” said the blonde.

Virgin Galactic’s plan calls for WhiteKnightTwo to lift SpaceShipTwo, a pressurized spacecraft, into the atmosphere from a base in New Mexico. When they reach 15,240 metres, the spaceship would detach and blast into space at four times the speed of sound. The six passengers would experience about five minutes of weightlessness and get a glimpse of Earth. The spaceship would glide back to Earth much like the space shuttle. Take-off to landing is expected to take about two and a half hours. Virgin Galactic doesn’t have a launch

Two weeks later, the blonde returns, repays the £5,000 and the interest, which comes to £17.41. The manager says, “Miss, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a millionairess. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow £5,000?” The blonde replies... “where else in central London can I park my car for two weeks for only £17.41 and expect it to be there when I return?”

THINKING OF THROWING A PARTY? We all like a good party, whether your getting married, engaged, for a special birthday 50th, 21st, 18th, or you just fancy having a party. Whatever the occasion there is always so much to think about and organise to make everything run smoothly, and to avoid disappointment for that special person you are having the celebration for, your guests, and just as important ‘you’ as the host. You need the Wow! factor. Having been events manager at Marco Pierre Whites Titanic restaurant in Soho London, Karen Fairbanks or Boo as she likes to be called has set up her own Events and Promotions company Wow! here on the Costa del Sol. “I saw that there was a niche here for us not only to offer a great service as I am sure other events companies and party organisers on the coast are doing but to give people that personal touch that magical wow factor that others seem to lack!”, “People are special and individual and need to be treated as such no matter what the

occasion and no matter what the budget. What you get from me is a new best friend able to help with all aspects from initial concept to delivery and hosting of the event. I can dress up in full theme or just blend into the background!”. Boo’s partner Paul has set up Blazing Fire Sound and together they can provide the PA/sound system, DJ’s, artists, security and catering. Paul is a very charismatic, funny and entertaining individual and can also host the event. Blazing Fire is not your usual mobile disco set up, this is a specialist company that has knowledge and experience of all genres of music. Paul uses his lyrical ability to create rhymes either before the event or on the spot about the hosts and their guests. They do have a set themed parties one being a Tropical theme complete with Jamaican food, BBQ and Jerk Chicken, or they can create the whole thing from scratch to your exacting requirements. So if you need something extra special contact Boo on 622 221 930 or Paul on 622 222 768.

wife is yelling at the front door, who do you let in first? The dog, of course. He’ll shut up once you let him in. What’s worse than a Male Chauvinist Pig? A woman who won’t do what she’s told. I married Miss Right. I just didn’t know her first name was Always. Scientists have discovered a food that diminishes a woman’s sex drive by 90%. It’s called a Wedding Cake. Why do men die before their wives? They want to. Women will never be equal to men until they can walk down the street with a bald head and a beer gut, and still think they are sexy.

The Wells Fargo teller promptly called the police, who arrested the man a few minutes later - still waiting in line at the Bank of America. A man walked into a 7-11, put a $20 bill on the counter and asked for change. When the assistant opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the assistant promptly provided. The man took the cash from the assistant and fled - leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer? Fifteen dollars.

A man walked into the downtown Bank of America and on the back of a deposit slip wrote, "this iz a stikkup. Put all your muny in this bag." While standing in line, waiting to give his note to the teller, the man began to worry that someone may have seen him write the note and might call the police before he could reach the teller. So, the criminal left the Bank of America and walked across to the street to Wells Fargo. After waiting in line for several minutes there, he handed his note to a teller. After reading it, the teller determined that this robber was perhaps a few sandwiches short of a picnic. She told him that because his note was written on a Bank of America deposit slip, she could not honor his demand. He would

Sharon Osbourne will not be returning to the show saying: “Sharon won’t be coming back. “Instead the idea at the moment is to bring in a younger, male judge,” the source apparently said. Meet Miss Coco, General Mills, Pussy Jones and Captain Fang The Daily Star has revealed that all four of the X-Factor judges use code names to book hotel rooms, in a bid to stop crazy fans tormenting them. Cheryl is known as Miss Coco after her favourite designer Coco Chanel, Simon is known as General Mills. To put a stop to all that

It’s doubtful Dannii will be here for the next series,” a source reportedly told Heat. The source added that

Cheryl on £750,000, was said to be looking for a £250,000 pay rise putting them both on £1million. But insiders say only Cheryl, 25, will secure the huge pay increase. Dannii, 37, will be left on a lower salary. A source close to the negotiations revealed,“Cheryl remains the golden girl, the one they all want. That gives her huge leverage to make a lot of money from the X Factor. She’s already on more than Dannii, so getting £1million is’t such a huge leap. But Dannii isn’t in such a strong position. The pay leap is too big. She’ll get a pay rise, but it still won’t be in Cheryl’s league.” Dannii was said to be furious when she discovered the pay gulf.

and rather angry so she phones the customer service department. She is told that this is quite impossible and that they’ll send along a fitter to take a look. The fitter arrives and assembles the cupboard. Again, a train passes and the cupboard collapses. Completely baffled by this unexpected event, the fitter decides to reassemble the cupboard and sit inside it to see whether he can find out what causes the cupboard to collapse. At this point, Rosie’s husband comes home, sees the cupboard and says, “Oh, that’s a splendid looking cupboard,” and he opens it to look inside. The fitter, who had been wondering how to explain his position in Rosie’s bedroom cupboard, blurts out, “You probably won’t believe me, but I’m standing here waiting for a train.”

Rosie Hall buys a self-assembly, flatpack, cupboard from her local Homebase store. Reaching home Rosie reads the instructions carefully, counts the pieces then assembles the cupboard in the bedroom. It looks really great and she is delighted. Now, Rosie lives near a railway line and as the train passes by the cupboard collapses. Undaunted by this misfortune she rereads the instructions and reassembles the cupboard. Once more, another train passes and the whole cupboard collapses again. Rosie now frustrated and thinking that she must have done something “wrong” re-re-reads the instructions and re-re-assembles the cupboard. Shortly, a train passes and the whole cupboard collapses yet again for the 3rd time. Rosie is now fed up, cross

Now there is a question and one which some golfers have very strong and wrong opinions about. I listened to two players in heated discussion over the subject, one who believed the line of the putt was a description of the direction the ball took after being struck, and the other arguing back that it was the line the player selected to putt along. Now, I hope it did not take the golfer reading this long to side with our man arguing back, the line of the putt is the line selected by the player to putt along, allowing for the ups and downs of the putting surface, and with the right weight the direct route for the putt to sink. We have all watched the professional golfers on tour walking around the green holding their putters up like dumb bells, searching for that line to the cup that will win the tournament. Most armature players can pick a good line, the problem then comes developing the confidence to putt along the line selected, a fault I see a lot when coaching. A player who sees a left to right break then sets up to play it, but still puts straight at the hole, or for some reason and just before putting changes his mind increasing or decreasing the line and weight of the putt when played. Positive putting is the key to lower putting averages, so how do we bring confidence to the player? First he must see his choice is good when selecting the line of the putt, and that by putting along it, his putts will sink. Take 3 balls, a golf tee and your putter to the practice green, and starting with a putt about 3m from the green find the line of the putt, walk to the end of the line and stick the tee into the green behind the back line of the cup, set yourself up to the line of the putt and putt towards the tee peg, if you have chosen the right line of putt, and the weight of the putt is correct, the ball should sink. Using this drill learn from what the ball

does, if you feel the line is correct but the weight was not or you did not putt along your line, then take another ball and try again, but be honest, if you have picked the wrong line start again, pick another line and move the tee. This drill will help you to pick the right line and putt down it.

Golfing About The schoolteacher was taking her first golfing lesson. “Is the word spelt p-u-t or p-u-t-t?” she asked the instructor. “P-u-t-t is correct,” he replied. “Put means to place a thing where you want it. Putt means merely a vain attempt to do the same thing.”

Q. What is the most reliable method to determine a baby's sex? A. Childbirth. Q. My wife is five months pregnant and so moody that sometimes she's borderline irrational. A. So what's your question?

Is there anything I should avoid while recovering from childbirth? A. Yes, pregnancy. Q. Do I have to have a baby shower? A. Not if you change the baby's diaper very quickly.

Lin kM

Q. My childbirth instructor says it's not pain I'll feel during labor, but pressure. Is she right?! A. Yes, in the same way that a tornado might be called an air current.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson go on a camping trip, set up their tent, and fall asleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes his faithful friend. “Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see.” Watson replies, “I see millions of stars.” “What does that tell you?” Watson ponders for a minute. “Astronomically speaking, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Timewise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, it’s evident the Lord is allpowerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?” Holmes is silent for a moment, then speaks. “Watson, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent.” A man rushes into his house and yells to his wife; “Martha, pack up your things. I just won the lottery!” Martha replies, “Shall I pack for warm weather or cold?” The man responds, “I don’t care. Just so long as you're out of the house by noon!"
