toupee to cover my dome, Or have a few hairs pulled from over the side. I'm a woman, you know -- I've got far too much pride! And I honestly think its a privilege for me to have these two boobs and squat when I pee, I don't live to play golf and watch football, I don't swagger and spit like a Neanderthal, I won't tell you my wife just does not understand, stick my hand in my pocket to hide that gold band or tell you a story to make you sigh and weep then screw you, roll over and fall sound asleep! Yes, I'm glad I'm a woman, a woman you see, you can forget all about that old penis envy I don't long for male bonding, I don't cruise for chicks join the Hair Club For Men, or think with my dick, I'm a woman by chance and I'm thankful it's true I'm so glad I'm a woman and not a man like you!

I won't grab your boobs, I won't pinch your bum, my belt buckles not hidden beneath my beer gut and I don't go around "readjusting" my crotch or yell like Tarzan when my head-board gets a notch, I don't belch in public, I don't scratch my behind, I'm a woman you see - I'm just not that kind! I'm glad I'm a woman, I'm so glad I could sing, I don't have body hair like shag carpeting, It doesn't grow from my ears or cover my back, When I lean over you can't see 3 inches of crack.

number one - but what happened to George..? Post Talent, the super cute teen has starred in West End show Into The Hoods, had a best selling dance DVD (and a not so best selling single), starred in 3D film Street Dance and recently landed a regular part in BBC drama Waterloo Road. Go George! Paul and his strange teeth won the Nation's hearts with his stirring rendition of Nessun Dorma in 2007. The salesman said he'd been bullied as a kid but had found solace through singing. Paul's appeared on TV sung with Katherine Jenkins, performed at concerts, sold over two million albums, got married and had his teeth fixed. Hurray! His life story is currently being turned into a film, and there's talk that comedy actor Nick Frost will take the starring role. I wonder what delights await us from the new series?!

With BGT hitting our screens once again we at Costa Link thought we’d have a look though the mists of time to see where some of the winners and losers of this very funny show are now Lords of the dance, Stavros Flatley, won the hearts of the nation in 2009 with their wibbly wobbly double act, which saw the father-son duo perform a Greek version of River Dance, half naked. Since Britain's Got Talent, the boys have toured the UK, written a book called How To Be (A Little Bit) Greek, led the St Patrick's Day Parade in China and performed for London Irish's first home game of the season against Gloucester. You can catch the duo later this year at The Isle Of Man Festival. Aged just 14 George won series two with his lamp post twirling routine to Mint Royal's Singin' In The Rain. The song became

3rd, when series six will run for three months - that's assuming there isn't a hung parliament, in which case you may have to wait until 2011. Big Brother Of course all this would mean that - yikes The Apprentice clashed with Big Brother! The very last series of BB should be joining us late May/early June, which means the final could be going up against Sugar's big finale. And finally..... Lost: Final Episode Yes, it’s the day they thought would never come: Lost comes to an end. So clear your diary for May 28th and start placing bets on how this weird, wonderful and defiantly long-running series is going wrap itself up.

Hot gossip is going telly mad this month! Summer see’s a few of our old favorites hitting the screen again The X Factor No summer reality TV experience is complete without a healthy dose of The X Factor, which returns in August ready to see us through the autumn months. They’re auditioning until May 15th if you fancy your chances, and this time you can send in a video of you singing, which should be slightly less nervewracking than warbling in front of Simon and who knows who..... The Apprentice If you’re wondering where Sir Alan has got to, fear not, this year’s series has been postponed to the summer to avoid clashing with the general election. So prepare to renew your addiction sometime after June

bathroom - a toothbrush, toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a stolen towel from the Holiday Inn. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 437. Shopping - A woman makes a list of things she needs and then goes to the shop and buys these things. A man waits until the only items left in his fridge are half a mouldy piece of cheese and a beer. Then he goes shopping. He buys everything that looks good. By the time a man reached the checkout counter, his trolley is packed tighter that the Clampett's car on Beverly Hillbillies. Of course, this will not stop him from going to the 10-items-or-less lane. Plants - A woman asks a man to water her plants while she is on holiday. The man waters the plants. The woman comes to an apartment full of dead plants. No one knows why this happens. Continued on page 16...

Relationships - When a relationship ends, a woman will cry and pour her heart out to her girlfriends, and she will write a poem titled "All Men Are Idiots". Then she will get on with her life. A man has a little more trouble letting go. Six months after the break-up, at 3:00 a.m. on a Saturday night, he will call and say, "I just wanted to let you know you ruined my life, and I'll never forgive you, and I hate you, and you're a total floozy. But I want you to know that there's always a chance for us". This is known as the "I Hate You / I Love You" drunken phone call, that 99% of all men have made at least once. Maturity - Women mature much faster than men. Most 17-year-old females can function as adults. Most 17-year-old males are still giving each other wedgies after PE. This is why high school romances rarely work out. Bathrooms - A man has six items in his

she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings, she will stop at a petrol station and ask for directions. Men consider this to be a sign of weakness. Men never stop and ask for directions. Men will drive in a circle for hours, saying things like, "Looks like I've found a new way to get there." and, "I know I'm in the general area. I recognise that last lamp post." Toys - Little girls love to play with toys. Then when they reach the age of 11 or 12, they lose interest. Men never grow out of their obsession with toys. As they get older, their toys simply become more expensive and silly and impractical. For instance: little miniature TV’s, Graphic equalizers. Video games. Anything that blinks, beeps, and requires at lot of batteries. Cats - Women love cats. Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.

A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and football games and romances and best friends and favourite foods and secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house. The Telephone - Men see the telephone as a communication tool. They use the telephone to send short messages to other people.

• When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say? • Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist but a person who drives a racing car not called a racist? • Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites? • Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things? • "I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence? • If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed? • Does anyone ever say, "It's only a game" when their team is winning?

Just a thought!? • If you take an Oriental person and spin him around several times, does he become disoriented? • If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren't people from Holland called Holes? • Why do we say something is out of whack? What's a whack? • Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery? • If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled? • If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular? • When someone asks you, "A penny for your thoughts" and you put your two cents in what happens to the other penny? • Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker? • Why do croutons come in airtight packages? Aren't they just stale bread to begin with?

Hacker: May I clarify something? Who knows the Foreign Office secrets, apart from the Foreign Office? Bernard: That's easy - only the Kremlin.

Bernard: I think you should put out a press statement showing sympathy for the unemployed. Humphrey: Why? Bernard: You may be joining them any moment.

Humphrey: Prime Minister I must strongly protest in the strongest possible terms, my profound opposition to a newly instituted practice which imposes severe and intolerable restrictions upon the ingress and egress of senior members of the hierarchy and which will in all probability, should the current deplorable innovation be perpetuated, precipitate a constriction of the channels of communication and culminate in a condition of organisational atrophy and administrative paralysis which will render effectively impossible the coherent and coordinated discharge of the function of government within her Majesty's United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Hacker: You mean you've lost your key?

M

Head of MI5: There was a lot of ridiculous press speculation at the time, suggesting Halstead was a spy. Totally unfounded of course. Hacker: But he was a spy. Head of MI5: But they didn't know that!

Bernard: You only need to know things on a need to know basis. Humphrey: I need to know everything. How else can I judge whether or not I need to know it? Bernard: So you need to know things, even when you don't need to know them. You need to know them not because you need to know them, but because you need to know whether or not you need to know. And if you don't need to know you still need to know so that you know that there was no need to know. Humphrey: Yes!

C

Hacker: Do we ever get our own way with the French? Humphrey: Sometimes. Hacker: When was the last time? Humphrey: Battle of Waterloo, 1853. Dorothy: An ordinary person wants to stop a major government policy. What can he do

Humphrey: Nuclear weapons are there to make people believe that Britain is defended. Bernard: The Russians? Humphrey: No, not the Russians, the British. The Russians know it's not.

I'm glad I'm a man, you better believe. I don't live off of yogurt, diet coke, or cottage cheese, I don't moan to my girlfriends about the size of my boobs, I can get where I want to - north, south, east or west. I don't get drunk after only 2 beers, and when I do drink I don't end up in tears. I won't spend hours deciding what to wear, I spend 5 minutes max fixing my hair and I don't go around checking my reflection in everything shiny from every direction. I don't whine in public and make us leave early and when you ask why get all bitter and surly. I'm glad I'm a man, I'm so glad I could sing, I don't have to sit around waiting for that ring. I don't gossip about friends or stab them in the back; I don't carry our differences into the sack.

I'll never go psycho and threaten to kill you or think every guy out there's trying to steal you. I'm rational, reasonable, and logical too I know what the time is and I know what to do. And I honestly think it’s a privilege for me to have these two balls and stand when I pee. I live to watch sports and play all sorts of ball it’s more fun than dealing with women after all. I won't cry if you figure out it's not going to work I won't remain bitter and call you a jerk. Feel free to use me for immediate pleasure I won't assume it's permanent by any measure. Yes, I'm glad I'm a man, a man you see, I'm glad I'm not capable of child delivery. I don't get all hormoney every 28 days I'm glad that my gender gets me a much bigger raise. I'm a man by chance and I'm thankful it's true I'm so glad I'm a man and not a woman like you!

The Juggler A driver was pulled over by a police officer for speeding. As the officer was writing the ticket, she noticed several machetes in the car. "What are those for?" she asked suspiciously. "I'm a juggler," the man replied. "I use those in my act." "Well, show me," the officer demanded. So he got out the matches and started juggling them, first three, then more, finally seven at one time, overhand, underhand, behind the back, putting on a dazzling show and amazing the officer. Another car passed by. The driver did a double take, and said, "Crikey! I've got to give up drinking! Look at the test they're giving now."

The Helpful Wife A male driver is pulled over by a police man and the following conversation takes place: Man: What's the problem officer? Police Man: You were going at least 75 in a 55 zone. Man: No sir, I was going 65. Wife: Oh Harry. You were going 80. (Man gives his wife a dirty look.) Police Man: I'm also going to give you a ticket for your broken tail light. Man: Broken tail light? I didn't know about a broken tail light! Wife: Oh Harry, you've known about that tail light for weeks. (Man gives his wife a dirty look.) Police Man: I'm also going to give you a citation for not wearing your seat belt. Man: Oh, I just took it off when you were walking up to the car. Wife: Oh Harry, you never wear your seat

Grave Danger - A man was walking through a cemetery one dark and stormy night. As he got well into the cemetery, he heard a voice say, "Mark! Mark!". Pretending not to let it bother him, he pulled his coat a little tighter and kept walking. Again the voice said, "Mark! Mark!". That did it. He took off full speed and didn't stop until he was well outside the gates. As he stopped to catch his breath, the moon broke through the clouds enough so he could see what had been following him. It was a dog with a hare lip.

The Talking Parrots - A lady approaches her priest and tells him "Father, I have a problem. I have two female talking parrots, but they only know how to say one thing." "What do they say?" the priest inquired. "They only know how to say, 'Hi, we're prostitutes. Want to have some fun?'" "That's terrible!" the priest exclaimed, "but I have a solution to your problem. Bring your two female parrots over to my house and I will put them with my two male talking parrots whom I taught to pray and read the bible. My parrots will teach your parrots to stop saying that terrible phrase and your female parrots will learn the joys of praise and worship." "Thank you!" the woman responded. The next day the woman brings her female parrots to the priest's house. His two male parrots are holding the rosary beads and praying in their cage. The lady puts her two

Medical Tips... WHEN IS IT BEST TO DO A SMEAR TEST?

Jade Goody has recently dominated the headlines in her plight to raise awareness of the need to access regular cervical smear testing. Cervical Cancer is a treatable disease and if Jade had, had the opportunity to be tested earlier her reality may have been a different one.

The Department of Health recommends women between the ages of 25 and 64 years of age, have routine smears. In our opinion all women that are sexually active need to be screened regardless of age. It is best to schedule your smear for the middle of your menstrual cycle as it is easiest to get a good sample at this time. If you are menstruating it may be too difficult for us to get an adequate sample, or if you think you may be pregnant it is best for us to know, and we can test for this. HOW ARE THE RESULTS GIVEN AND WHAT DO THEY MEAN?

After 7 to 10 days you will be recalled to the clinic to discuss your results. If there are abnormal cell changes, you will be referred for a follow up appointment. If the cells are clear, you will wait another year before re booking unless you have any concerns in the meantime.

M

•This examination only takes a few minutes and could save your life.

A G

•A Cervical Smear test is an important part of maintaining health for all women who have ever been sexually active. Some women may find the smear test uncomfortable or embarrassing and so may put off having one.

A Z IN E

WHY IS CERVICAL SCREENING SO IMPORANT IN WOMEN´S HEALTH

•Annual smear tests reduce your risk of Cervical Cancer by 92%

N K

•In the UK alone it is estimated to save 1000 lives each year

LI

•80-90% of abnormalities are detected through regular smear tests, and can be treated early to Prevent Cancer WHAT IS A SMEAR TEST?

In a Private room with a female nurse we will ask you to lie on an examination couch with a blanket over you. You will be asked to lie in position with you feet together and knees apart and a disposable plastic speculum will be inserted into your vagina. This holds the walls of the vagina open so your cervix can be seen. We will then use a tiny brush or spatula to gently scrape off a sample of your cervical cells. These cells are then smeared onto a glass slide to be sent to the laboratory. The speculum is then removed, with minimal discomfort within those few minutes.

although this solution may not be practical for everyone, If you have a horse on a yard where he lives out, then try investing in a purpose made sweet itch rug , such as a Boett or a Pagony these offer complete coverage from ears to half way down the tail, and cover the belly completely to just in front of udder or sheath. although initially an expensive outlay, they are a sound investment, and will pay for themselves over again, If a sweet itch rug is not an option, there are various products that are on the market most containing Benzyl Benzoate, Coal Tar, or Caladryl lotions all have their advocates, once established, your vet can treat with antihistamine or long acting corticosteroid injections, but these are costly and have to be administered on a regular basis. So if you see your horse starting to rub, then act quickly, as i said earlier prevention is better than cure, and none of us want to see our equine friends suffer.

From The Horses Mouth - Sweet Itch...

Hi to all you horse lovers out there! I am sure that now the temperatures are picking up, many of your horses will soon start itching, this is usually a result of sweet itch. Sweet itch is a severe and sometimes disfiguring form of dermatitis; it can affect any type, colour or breed of horse, from all over the world. A family background to your horse suggests that this condition can be caused through a hereditary factor. The itching usually first appears on horses or ponies at between two to three years of age, as it usually takes a couple of summer seasons of exposure, before the equine shows a reaction. It is thought that sweet itch is probably an hypersensitive reaction to the saliva of midges in the Culicoides group. Once established it occurs each year when the temperatures start to rise, only to regress again when the colder weather arrives. A localised form of dermatitis that usually affects mane and poll area, and the root of the tail, in severe cases, the neck, shoulder and hindquarters as well. In the early stages the skin becomes much thickened because the intense irritation causes the horse to rub on any convenient rubbing post, rail or tree, the hair in these areas quickly becomes thin and tufted. And the skin oozes small globules of serum onto the surface. As the itch becomes worse and the rubbing constant, the hair of the mane and tail is completely lost and the skin develops a corrugated appearance, becoming ridged and scaly, long standing cases develop skin sores and ulcers which can prove difficult to heal. With this nasty condition, it is thought that prevention is better than cure fitting a screen across the stable door to prevent the midge entering, and hanging insecticide strips, try stabling your horse during high risk times i.e. from late afternoon until next morning,

They have a great range of drinks including milkshakes (made with ice cream) health drinks such as pomegranate and green tea as well as real fruit smoothies. If you just want a snack then there are sandwiches, baguettes, bagels, wraps and I love the toasted paninis. Mark and Rob the proprietors had sandwich bars in London and so the choice of fillings are amazing. They are really good at creating different foods that work well together; my favourite is chicken, rocket, cherry tomato and shaved parmesan. Last Sunday, we went to try their roast dinner for the first time - it was great all the vegetables were fresh and the roast potatoes were so tasty, and it only cost 10.00 € for a two course lunch! I love going to snack attack either with my family or I feel comfortable to go on my own because there is always a warm welcoming atmosphere, its known as “the local meeting eating place” Mark and Robs principles are quite simple; high quality food and drink served with a smile in a friendly atmosphere and has been their recipe for continued success “well done guys keep up the good work”

reminded her of cooked cabbage. Keeping her ears tuned to the conversation in the other room, she went on like this for another ten minutes. When the phone farewells signalled the end of her freedom, she fanned the air a few more times with her napkin, placed it on her lap and folded her hands upon it, smiling contentedly to herself. She was the picture of innocence when her husband returned, apologising for taking so long, he asked her if she peeked, and she assured him that she had not. At this point, he removed the blindfold, and she was surprised!! There were twelve dinner guests seated around the table to wish her a "Happy Birthday"!!!

Baked beans Once upon a time there lived a woman who had a maddening passion for baked beans. She loved them but unfortunately they had always had a very embarrassing and somewhat lively reaction to her. Then one day she met a guy and fell in love. When it became apparent that they would marry she thought to herself, “He is so sweet and gentlemanly, he would never go for this carrying on." So she made the supreme sacrifice, and gave up the beans. Some months later, her car broke down on the way home from work. Since she lived in the country she called her husband and told him that she would be late because she had to walk home. On her way she passed a small diner and the odour of the baked beans was more than she could stand. Since she still had miles to walk, she figured that she would walk off any ill effects by the time she reached home. So, she stopped at the diner and before she knew it, she had consumed three large orders of baked beans. All the way home she putt-putted. And upon arriving home she felt reasonably sure she could control it. Her husband seemed excited to see her and exclaimed delightedly, "Darling, I have a surprise for dinner tonight." He then blindfolded her and led her to her chair at the table. She seated herself and just as he was about to remove the blindfold from his wife, the telephone rang. He made her promise not to touch the blindfold until he returned. He then went to answer the phone. The baked beans she had consumed were still affecting her and the pressure was becoming almost unbearable, so while her husband was out of the room she seized the opportunity, shifted her weight to one leg and let it go. It was not only loud, but it smelled like a fertilizer truck running over a skunk in front of pulpwood mill. She took her napkin and fanned the air around her vigorously. Then, she shifted to the other cheek and ripped three more, which

Blame it on the Dog Julie can really fart! A while ago she started dating a guy called Toby. She doesn’t quite know how to bring up her little situation, but luckily, Toby has a dog. As most of her farts are silent she simply blames the dog. This goes on for a few weeks, with them spending several evenings together and her blaming the dog on many occasions. On their last night together, they are sitting in the living room watching a movie and Julie lets out an exceptionally bad odour. As always, once the smell hits the air she makes a casual remark, blaming it on the dog. Toby turns to her and tells her that his dog is dead. He asks her if it has been her who has been farting over the past several weeks. She confesses that it has, and his face turns white. It turns out that Toby’s dog was really, really old and Toby was quite concerned about its well being and suffering, so he took it to the vet who inferred that his dog may be getting sick. After trying some medication from the vet for a few weeks, to no avail, Toby made the rather rash decision to put his dog down, rather than wait and watch it deteriorate further. The irony of course is that his dog wasn’t sick at all. Julie’s farts killed Toby’s dog. Like I said, the girl can fart.

Fed Up Of Dieting?

Hypno-Band Did you know that women spend an average of three and a half years thinking about their weight, what they eat, dieting and healthy eating during their lifetime? (GMTV Breakfast Show 09.09.09). In terms of time wasted, this is a large chunk out of anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life! So what if you could forget all the dieting, forget all the constant thinking about what to eat and how many calories are in each and every bite? Have a surgical Gastric Band fitted? The TV presenter Fern Britten is a famous example of someone who has had one fitted and has certainly lost a lot of weight. But what if you could have all the benefits of a surgical Gastric Band, without the surgery and cost? By using the Hypno-Band System, we create a state of mind where you will believe you actually have a Gastric Band fitted! You will eat smaller portions and feel full. The Hypno-Band System is a long term solution to your weight problems at a fraction of the cost of surgery! At the moment, the Hypno-Band System is enjoying amazing success in the UK with Licensed Hypno-Band Practitioners in almost every region of the country. And now this treatment is available here in AndalucĂ­a at Hypnotherapy Costa Del Sol in Mijas Costa. Imagine no more diets, no invasive surgery, no stitches etc., just a pleasant and relaxing six hours (not all at once!) of therapy that will change your life forever! Although Virtual Gastric Band therapy has been around for a few years now, the Hypno-Band system has been uniformly tried and tested for weight loss and is now literally sweeping across the UK with astonishing results. So if you are living in misery because you feel there is no solution to your weight problem, contact Hypnotherapy Costa Del Sol and book in for your free initial appointment. What have you got to lose? Some weight, perhaps??

Two blondes decided to rob a bank together. The first blonde, Judy planed the robbery. They then go through plans together in great detail. The robbery begins... Judy drives up in front of the bank, stops the car and says to Sue, "I want to make absolutely sure you understand the plan. You are supposed to be in and out of the bank in no more than three minutes with the cash. Do you understand the plan?" "Perfectly," said Sue. Sue goes in the bank while Judy waits in the getaway car. One minute passes... Two minutes pass... Seven minutes pass... and Judy is really stressing out. Finally, the bank doors burst open! And here comes Sue. She's got a safe wrapped up in rope and is dragging it to the car. About the time she gets the safe in the trunk of the car, the bank doors burst open again with the security guard coming out. The guard's pants and underwear are down around his ankles while he is firing his weapon. As the girls are getting away, Judy says "You are such a blonde! I thought you understood the plan!" Sue said, "I did... I did exactly what you said!" "No, you idiot," said Judy. "You got it all mixed up. I said tie up the GUARD and blow the SAFE!"

Equities : With equities rallying in the past 12 months, by as much as 60%, many are now questioning how long this can be sustained. Morgan Stanley sees European equities in a cyclical bull market, and predicts a further rally after a ‘rest’ for 3 to 6 months.

Currencies : The Euro (against the pound) has been unable to break above the 0.92 level for almost 6 months now, and traders generally have a long term bearish (negative) view on the currency pair.

With the 65th anniversary of VE day on the 8th of May we thought that a good old British classic would go down well Ingredients

spread a little raspberry jam on each piece. Then put them into a large glass bowl and sprinkle the raspberries and sherry over them, giving everything a good stir to soak up the sherry. To make the custard, heat ½ pint (275 ml) of the double cream in a small saucepan. Blend the egg yolks, sugar and cornflour together thoroughly in a basin, and when the cream is hot, pour it over the egg mixture, stirring the whole time. Now return the custard to the saucepan and stir over a very low heat until thick, then remove it and allow to cool. Slice the bananas, sprinkle them in amongst the raspberries / strawberries and pour the custard over the sponge cakes. Whip up the remaining ½ pint (275 ml) of cream and spread it over the top. Decorate with the flaked almonds. Cover and chill for 3 or 4 hours before serving.

be showing them up, but each man began to harbour a burning desire to beat her! In the third week, they all had their game faces on. But this week, she was 15 minutes late! This had the guys irritable, because each was determined to play the best round of golf of his life to beat her. As they waited for her, they figured her late arrival was some petty gamesmanship on her part. Finally, she showed up. This week the lady lawyer played right-handed, which was a good thing, since she narrowly beat all three of them. However, she was so gracious and so complimentary of their strong play, it was hard to hold a grudge against her. This woman was a riddle no one could figure out! Back in the clubhouse she had all three guys shaking their heads at her ability. They had a couple of beers after their round which helped the conversation loosen up. Finally, one of the men could contain his curiosity no longer. He asked her point blank, 'How do you decide if you're going to golf righthanded or left-handed?' The lady blushed, and grinned. She said, 'That's easy. When my Dad taught me to play golf, I learned I was ambidextrous. I have always had fun switching back and forth. Then, when I met my husband in college and got married, I discovered he always sleeps in the nude. From then on, I developed a silly habit. Right before I left in the morning for golf practice, I would pull the covers off him. If his you-knowwhat was pointing to the right, I golfed right-handed; if it was pointed to the left, I golfed left-handed. All the guys on the team thought this was hysterical.' Astonished at this bizarre information, one of the guys shot back, 'But what if it's pointed straight up in the air?' She said, 'Then, I'm fifteen minutes late'.

Lawyers in an Edson law firm lived and died for their Saturday morning round of golf. It was their favourite moment of the week. Then, one of the lawyers was transferred to an office in another city. It wasn't quite the same without him. A new woman lawyer joined their law firm. One day, she overheard the remaining three talking about their golf round at the coffee table. Curious, she spoke up, 'You know, I used to play on my golf team in college and I was pretty good. Would you mind if I joined you next week?' The three lawyers looked at each other. They were hesitant. Not one of them wanted to say 'yes', but she had them on the spot. Finally, one man said it would be okay, but they would be starting pretty early, at 6:30 am. He figured the early Tee-Time would discourage her immediately. The woman said this might be a problem, and asked if she could possibly be up to 15 minutes late. They rolled their eyes, but said this would be okay. She smiled and said, 'Good, then I'll be there either at 6:30 or 6:45.' She showed up right at 6:30, and wound up beating all three of them with an eye-opening 2-under par round. She was a fun and pleasant person the entire round. The guys were impressed! Back in the clubhouse, they congratulated her and, happily, invited her back the next week. She smiled, and said, 'Sure, I'll be here at 6:30 or 6:45.' The next week she again showed up at 6:30 Saturday morning. Only this time, she played left-handed. The three lawyers were incredulous as she still managed to beat them with an even par round, despite playing with her off-hand. By now the guys were totally amazed, but wondered if she was just trying to make them look bad by beating them left-handed. They couldn't figure her out. She was again very pleasant and didn't seem to

Golf Tips And Tricks knock the ball from the tee.

Stance

So how far should your feet be apart and why?

Pro Tip

Our friend here shows your spine becomes the axle to your swing. The width of your stance is your platform which when set right helps weight transference and balance. By Mark Sibley of Miraflores Golf Academy

N K

M

Your feet must be set to the width of the widest part of your body. Now joking aside, this is your shoulders! This will offer you a solid base to your swing, allowing you to rotate around your spine as an axle, coiling and releasing your body without sway or lean.

CCorrect orrrect Stance Stance WWidth ididth

A G

Now if you think about it, the full golf swing involves you returning back to your set position to strike the ball. A lean or a sway in your swing will make this difficult, and almost impossible to repeat with the consistency required for playing good golf.

A Z IN E

The stance position is more important than most golfers ever give it credit ,a large number of players don't know the correct width of the stance or why it should be set that way in simple terms, too wide and you will lean as you swing; too narrow and you will sway as you swing .

Stance Width Drill

O

S

T

A

LI

Set up to the golf ball and get comfortable and ready to play your shot. Then without moving your feet, stand upright and rest the club against your leg. Look down and check the width of your stance. You need it be the width of your shoulders, so hang your arms straight by your sides and point your fingers to the ground. With your stance set to the correct width your fingers should be pointing to the outside edges of the heels of your shoes. If not, adjust the width of your stance and run the drill again. It will give you a feeling for a correct stance width in your set up system.

C

Stance Width As You Practice For this you will need two golf balls and two tees. Place the tees in to the ground about 2.5cm from your left and right heel Position when set correct then place the balls on the tees. As you practice when you look down, too close will be clearly visible and too wide will

Tom had this problem of getting up late in the morning and was always late for work. His boss was mad at him and threatened to fire him if he didn't do something about it. So Tom went to his doctor who gave him a pill and told him to take it before he went to bed. Tom slept well and in fact beat the alarm in the morning. He had a leisurely breakfast and drove cheerfully to work. "Boss", he said, "The pill actually worked!" "That's all fine" said the boss, "But where were you yesterday?"

Three sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. Getting back together, they discussed the gifts they were able to give their elderly Mother. The first said, "I built a big house for our Mother." The second said, "I sent her a Mercedes with a driver." The third smiled and said, "I've got you both beat. You remember how Mum enjoyed reading the Bible? And you know she can't see very well any more. I sent her a remarkable parrot that recites the entire Bible. It took Elders in the church 12 years to teach him. He's one of a kind. Mum just has to name the chapter and verse, and the parrot recites it." Soon thereafter, Mum sent out her letters of thanks: "Milton," she wrote one son, "the house you built is so huge. I live in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house." "Gerald," she wrote to another, "I am too old to travel any more. My eyesight isn't what it used to be. I stay most of the time at home, so I rarely use the Mercedes. And the driver is so rude!" "Dearest Donald," she wrote to her third son, "you have the good sense to know what your Mother likes. The chicken was delicious!"

A vampire bat came flapping in from the night, covered in fresh blood, and parked himself on the roof of the cave to get some sleep. Pretty soon all the other bats smelled the blood and began hassling him about where he got it. He told them to go away and let him get some sleep. However, the bats persisted until finally he gave in. "OK, follow me," he said, and flew out of the cave with hundreds of bats behind him. Down through a valley they went, across a river and into a forest full of trees. Finally he slowed down and all the other bats excitedly milled around him. "Now, do you see that tree over there?" he asked.

"How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics assistant. She showed him a bottle costing 50â&#x201A;Ź. "That's a bit much," said Tim, so she returned with a smaller bottle for 30â&#x201A;Ź. "That's still quite a bit," Tim complained. Growing annoyed, the clerk brought out a tiny 15â&#x201A;Ź bottle. "What I mean," said Tim, "is I'd like to see something really cheap." The assistant handed him a mirror.

Several planetary allies will make it easier for you to say exactly what's on your mind this month. You were born an expert at saying exactly what's on your mind and in your heart, so anyone who crosses your path with questions will receive answers.

Cancer

After weeks of misunderstandings, you'll actually be able to make plans and be able to keep them. After the 10th, make arrangements, settle disagreements, and know that promises made will be promises kept.

That pay rise, bonus, or promotion you've been aiming for will finally come. The higher-ups who've been watching you will be grateful for the time you've spent working hard and waiting for it all to come about.

An easy month this month! You'll be in the mood to travel now. If you decide to travel long-distances or just take a few days off Capricorn well, that will be the hardest decision you'll have to make this month. Extend the invitation, and expect it to be accepted.

Scorpio

A huge astrological tug of war is going on this month, at work or play, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t neglect your relationships. Your decisions won't be easy, but only you can make them.

So you may have been doing battle over finances or inheritances. That's never a pleasant thing, but at times, it's necessary, and this may be one of those times. Some of those issues may have been secret in the past, but they won't be any longer. You're the sexiest and most magnetic of all the twelve signs, however, so if there's someone by your side you find absolutely delicious, you'll be able to lure them closer, and let them know exactly how you feel.

You'll be tugged in two different directions this month, between your emotions - and professional matters. That doesn't mean you won't be able to manage to serve Sagittarius two masters. You'll be tired after all the stress, fortunately, your sweetheart, will be there for you.
