Huge Increase In Health Service Transport Fleet The Councillor for Health, Maria Ángeles Palacios last week presented the details of the new vehicles that will be available for the Murcian Health Service, with good news for patients and residents of the province. The new vehicle fleet numbers represent a 34% increase over those available at the time of the last public tender in 2004. In total, 5 types of vehicles will be available to meet the differing needs of patients in the region, and the budget for providing the transport services has increased to 47.5 million euros, up 6 million euros on last year’s budget provision. The fleet of vehicles will number 294 in total. Of these, 13 will be UME vehicles (Unidades Medicalizadas de Emergencias) which will be based in Murcia, Alcantarilla, Molina de

Segura, 2 in Cartagena, Mazarrón, Torre Pacheco, La Manga, Lorca, Águilas, Cieza, Caravaca de la Cruz and Yecla. These vehicles are equipped with the latest state of the art life saving equipment and are available 24 hours a day every day of the year. Each has a team of 4 specially trained personnel: a doctor, paramedic, driver and a technician. There will also be seven Interhospital Vital Support Vehicles, located at the hospitals of Reina Sofía, Rosell, Los Arcos, Rafael Méndez, Comarcal del Noroeste, Cieza and Yecla. These vehicles are used to transport critically ill patients between hospitals, with most cases being transferred to La Arrixaca. They are also available 24 hours a day, all year round.

The other 40 ambulances fall into the Basic Support category, and are used by the primary health centres in the region to move patients who may require medical attention en route to hospital. Each ambulance has the neccesary technology to give the patient complete medical support in the event of an emergency, including respiratory equipment, cardiovascular equipment and much more. The ambulances operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and are managed by the emergency 112 service. In the new fleet there are also 43 vehicles to be used by people who require urgent medical intervention. These will be used to move patients to the nearest medical centre or hospital, as long as the patient does not require medical attention during the journey. Of the 43 vehicles, 30 are available throughout

the year 24 hours a day, and an additional 7 vehicles work a 12 hour shift. The remaining 6 are used as back up in the busy periods of the year, such as the summer season. Completing the fleet are the 174 vehicles assigned to each region serving one of the 9 main hospitals and their catchment area, plus 17 vehicles in reserve. These are dedicated to moving chronically ill patients, taking patients for therapuetic treatments and for patients requiring radiotherapy, physiotherapy, chemotherapy, diagnostic tests or specialist consultancy services. The extensive new fleet aims to meet the medical needs of all the patients in the Murcia region, making access to treatment easier and better service a priority for all.

Health Card Needed For Prescription Medicines

medicines is the first step in the initiative to encourage people to present the card for any health oriented matter.

Read All About It!

The primary objective of the campaign is to improve identification of patients at the dispensing stage, and to optimise the management of the health service resources, including the billing process for the Murcian Health Service. The Health Council are implementing a campaign to raise public awareness of the need to carry the card, and to impress on individuals the importance of the document as a means of identification in health related matters.

This September sees new rules come into effect regarding the carrying of the health card or “Tarjeta Sanitaria”. The slogan reinforces the need to carry the card on your person at all times. “Tarjeta Sanitaria, llévala siempre” runs the poster, and the campaign is designed to tell all residents of Murcia that they should be carrying the card with them every day in their wallets and bags.

The unique number on the cards allows access to the health care information of all registered citizens, and it will be essential for buying prescription medicines. The card allows the pharmacist to identify the person buying the medication, helps avoid mistakes and offers better security. It should become our ‘DNI sanitario’, the equivalent of carrying around a health ‘NIE number’ and being asked to present the card when buying

Are you covered for all eventualities? In times of economic slowdown, we all think about how we can save. We have too much month and too little money to cover it. One of the first things that springs to mind for most people is saving on the security of “just in case” – which often means that they are not taking out sufficient insurances. This method will, in case of incidents, for sure prove to be a very expensive method of saving money. Further, if people do choose to take out insurance, they far too often choose from price, without giving the cover they get for their money much thought. There are many insurance companies offering their services within the different types of insurances, and it can be very difficult to choose among them. Unfortunately the general feeling is that when you need the insurance to cover, the company will always find a way out – what is also known as “the small print”. A serious insurance company will not have anything written in small print – whether it being metaphorically speaking or physically. It is plain impossible to make a contract – and especially an insurance policy – covering all possible situations, therefore in a lot of situations it will be down to analogue interpretation of the conditions in the policy. An insurance policy is no more or less than a contract - a legally binding document between the insurance provider and the policyholder. When we talk about two individuals,

deciding on an agreement between them and writing this down, it is not too difficult to comprehend that it is binding for both parties. After all, both parties have on equal foot agreed upon the details. A contract between a company and an individual seems for most people to be a different thing, maybe because it is a contract between a legal identity (the company), entering into the agreement with a pre-defined set of conditions by which they will accept the agreement, and the individual who has to accept these conditions. This is why contracts like that are under strict regulation by the government. As we, as policy takers, often do not have the knowledge of the details of these regulations by the legislators, the only security we have is to make sure that we only enter into legally binding contracts with companies that are registered and operating under these rules. When we are talking insurance policies it is equally important that you ensure that the agent or mediator is operating under the regulations for mediating insurance policies, either by the British FSA and/or the Spanish equivalent DGS. When it comes to house insurance and mortgages, the bank very often present the policy among all the other papers to be signed. Do not accept this until you have had a chance to check out the cover and premium of that insurance. It is often possible to find house insurance both cheaper and better from another company, and you are not obliged to use the bank’s insurance company. Just remember, when it comes to comparing between the different companies – no matter what type of insurance - never only compare price, but also the cover you will get for the price. Many policy takers fail to read the conditions of their policies. Unfortunately keeping yourself in the dark about your policy will not help you in case of a dispute – arguments like “I did not know” or “I thought that was covered”, neither of these will be valid in front of an ombudsman or a judge. So, besides making sure that the company with which you enter into a contract and – in case you go through an agent – the agency, is adhering to law and regulations, also make sure that you read the conditions of your policy.

New Pesticide Limits For Spanish Produce The Head of the Modernisation of Exports and Agriculture has confirmed that new legislation which came into effect on the 1st September, is “an historical date for the agricultural sector”. The changes to the maximum limits of residues for pesticides will strengthen the marketability of Spanish products, he believes, enabling producers to deliver the high standards of quality and food safety demanded by European consumers. It has taken 30 years to reach this level of harmonisation and agreement, he added. On the 1st September, new legislation revised the values for the Maximum Limit for Residual Pesticides on fruit and vegetables destined for the European marketplace. The values must be adhered to by all of the EU member states. This will help to eliminate commercial barriers between

the different countries and guarantee better margins of food safety for the end consumers. The new laws replace the outdated 1976 legislation, which covered only the harmonisation of a handful of pesticides around at that time. Other food sanitisation products were fixed at a national level by each member state, leading to some disparity in levels of pesticide and creating commercial differences. In order to set the maximum levels, arduous studies have been completed by the European Authority for Food Safety. There also will be a continous process of examination and revision of the standards. The importance of communicating the changes to the consumers is clear. Consumer confidence in

products is key to the success of the sector. As part of the Regional Plan to monitor pesticide residues, over 400 tests were made in 2007, and over 70% of these showed no detectable residue at all. The results are positive, and show that vigilance is the key to achieving the correct results, whether the produce in question be tomatoes, grapes, or peppers. The testing means that any deviation from the standards is corrected as soon as possible. If you’d like to know more about the food safety issue concerning pesticides, click onto the web page http://ec.europa.eu /sanco_ pesticides/public/index.cfm where you can consult the list of active substances used for each type of vegetable.

New Bridge for Fuente Álamo The Council for Public Works, Housing and Transport is to build a new bridge over the rambla in Fuente Álamo, with the project costing a total of over 935,000 euros. The project is currently at the tendering stage, although works are expected to begin shortly. The aim of the new bridge is to keep traffic flowing freely in the area and to offer access routes for pedestrians. It will also improve links between different parts of the town, whose population has been growing rapidly in recent years. The new bridge will connect the ring road with the MU-601, which gives access to the new international airport for the region of Murcia.

Other improvements will be made to the road as a part of the project, including the construction of a plaza to allow access from the adjacent roads, new pavements and improvements to lighting. The bridge will have a carriageway of 3.5m width in each direction, plus a cycle lane of 1.5m width. The pavements will be 2m wide, allowing pedestrian access. The project should help to improve road safety in the area, as the level of daily traffic in Fuente Álamo continues to rise. Carmen Sandoval, Director General of Transport and Roads, called the works “ necessary and opportune”.

Dog Show For Pilar de la Horadada The first National and International Dog Show in Pilar de la Horadada is set to take place on the 13th and 14th of September, so hurry along to get a look at the best examples of “man’s best friend”. The show will be held in the Pabellón Duques de Palma, and has been organised by the Association of Working and Police Dogs, PETRAPOL. Perhaps like Interpol, but with 4 legs! Many other companies and organisations have helped the event to get off the ground, including the Council for Festivals, Sport and Tourism, the Town Hall and several local companies such as Granizados Navia, Surinver, Flomar and Productos Martinez. Classes organised over the course of the two day event include an exhibition of professional dog grooming, agility classes and a demonstration by police dogs of search and detection techniques. There will also be the chance to watch the best trained dogs go through their paces in the advanced obedience classes.

Council Meeting Allocated Funding The regional Government Council met last week to determine the allocation of funding. In the meeting, it was decided to award a grant of 200,000 euros on behalf of the Instituto de Fomenta de la Region to the Institución Ferial Villa de Torre Pacheco (IFEPA) for improvements and modernisation of the facilities and infrestructure of the showground and exhibition halls. At the same meeting, approval was given for the Guardia Civil to get 60,000 euros for work to protect the environment. This is as a result of an agreement between the

Murcian Executive and the Ministry of the Interior made in 2001. The aim is to protect the quality of the natural parks and spaces , a task normally the responsibility of the Servicio de Protección de la Naturaleza de la Guardia Civil here in Murcia. The grant will help to improve the tools available to the agents, who battle against continuing environmental crime. The funding will buy equipment and materials to improve the patrol’s vigilance and help to offer a quick and efficient response to any environmental incidents.

Price Of Lemons Leaves A Sour Taste The price of lemons rose by 57% in August, leaving consumers with rather a sour taste after doing the weekly shopping. Lemons, along with sunflower oil, flour, spaghetti and sterilised milk, were amongst the food items with the highest increase for the month, which saw rises of between 19% and 57% for the worst affected products. The data, collected by the Ministry for Industry, Tourism and Consumers, was published last week and is certain to affect the hard pressed householders as prices of foodstuffs, petrol and many other goods continue to rise. Lemons led the rankings, with a 57.39% increase. But there was some good news for shoppers too. Several prices fell last month. Onions have fallen 7% over the last 12 months, whilst the prices of anchovies, green peppers and olive oil fell by around 3%. Comparing August’s prices with the previous month reveals that the fresh products whose prices rose the most were green beans, oranges, sardines and salad tomatoes.

3 Cheers For the Heroes Of The Beaches!

It has been another busy summer for the members and volunteers of the Protección Civil, who have been kept on their toes all season with a series of incidents on the beaches of Cartagena. In total, 299 rescues took place this year, plus a further 9,000 incidents requiring intervention by the officers of the service. All of this since the season opened on June 1st! Of the 299 rescues that took place in June, July and August, 244 were individuals on the beaches of Entremares, Galuá and Las Sirenas. August was the busiest period, with 153 in that month alone. In addition, 18 boats had to be helped to safety. There were 5,151 requests for help relating to social services, such as help for handicapped people and further “preventative actions”.

These are classed as giving advice on bathing conditions or preventing swimmers from entering the water when a red flag is flying. Help was also given to bathers needing assistance to get in and out if the water in 120 cases. As if that wasn’t enough, the Protección Civil also made 187 ambulance trips with their new service, which only became operational this year, mainly from the beaches at Zeus and Islas Menores. The high number of swimmers meant that this year 3 people had to be treated for the symptoms of drowning, and 4 for cardio-respiratory problems. Less serious incidents needing first aid numbered 3,425, and over half of these again took place in August. These were mainly treatment of allergies and minor injuries.

Just to remind beach users, be more careful please as the summer season ends! The number of officers and volunteers to offer aid is now reduced for the end of the season, and the lifeguard stations have been reduced from 22 to 15 until the 15th September. After this date, until the 30th September, only 3 posts will be operational.

New Lamps To Reduce Severity of Accidents The first new lamp posts aimed at reducing the severity of injuries in the event of an accident have been installed along the F-35 running from Cartagena to La Aparecida and La Puebla. The posts, made of glass fibre and reinforced polymers, are designed to bend on impact when hit by a vehicle and should combine safe lighting with a reduction in injuries. The Councillor for Public Works, Homes and Transport, José Ballesta, presented the new lamp posts last week . The posts meet the safety legislation for the EU directives on roadside lighting and according to experts, should help to reduce the level of injury sustained on impact by one level. This means that the number of deaths may be reduced, as the resultant

injuries would become ‘serious’ but should not be fatal, and serious injuries should be reduced to ‘minor’ injuries thanks to the qualities of the posts. Although use of the new posts is not required by law, several countries across Europe have begun to install the posts. The Region of Murcia is once again pioneering the use of new innovations. The first 17 posts have now been installed on the F-35, and will form a pilot scheme to assess whether the injuries can in fact be reduced in severity. Should the scheme prove a success, the use of the posts will be rolled out to other roads in the region. The glass fibre that forms the posts has a life expectancy of around 60 years, and the lamp posts have a reduced weight of 105 kg, meaning that the damage suffered by a car

and its occupants should be less than the traditional style of posts. Another bonus is that at the end of their useful life, the posts will

Advertorial

Would you like to reduce your mobile phone bill? It is a fact that as a foreigner living in Spain, we never seem to hear about the offers that appear to be freely available if you know about them. For example, We all own mobile phones and yet most of us who use Movistar for example are unaware of a scheme called “Mi Gente” or My People. With this tariff you can call selected numbers in Spain for just 5 cents per minute. Or, with the Vodafone network, there is a similar scheme called “Vitamina 60x1” where you pay for one minute and can talk for an hour! Do these examples ring any bells? (Pardon the pun!) I love living in Spain and wouldn’t live anywhere else but, as with any country, it has its frustrations. One of which, and most of us have experienced this at some time or another, is receiving different answers to the same question. I recently visited three separate Vodafone shops in Cartagena, on the same day and with the intention of contracting an offer they currently have, apparently. Three completely different versions of the same scheme were offered. I had already been on the website and knew what the deal was, it’s just a shame the shop assistants did not so, in the end I simply gave up. So I for one am extremely happy that BT has now joined the mobile phone market place. Happily, they do not have any “give with one hand – take with

the other” deals. Just low cost calls which is exactly, and simply, what we all want. They also offer English support through a network of Authorised Distributors. Some distributors are Spanish, of course, but for this area there is a British owned company called Citrus Red SL who happens coincidentally to provide the lowest cost calls and ADSL for your landline in the whole of Spain. If you were to join them for low cost calls from your landline, you would not only be helping yourself but some other less fortunate people too. Citrus Red support an English based charity called Rays of Sunshine who make the dreams and wishes of terminally ill children come true. They donate 5% of your phone bill to the charity. I am glad to see a successful company putting something back in. You can find out about Rays of Sunshine at www.raysofsunshine. org.uk. Maybe you can join the likes of David Beckham, Leona Lewis and Cherie Booth as people who have made a difference to these brave and unfortunate children. At a time when we are all trying to save money but the constantly rising cost of living is making it an uphill struggle, it is refreshing to know someone is on our side. I highly recommend both the BT mobile service and the Citrus low cost calls - you can even call them free of charge on 900 804 564.

be completely re-cycleable. After damage as a result of accidents, the posts need only be repaired and re-positioned. Traditional

posts would need repairing and galvanising, increasing the cost, work and pollution associated with the process.

An Exhibition by Campoverde Artists Raises €400 for AECC An exhibition of paintings by the Campoverde Leisure Painters was recently held in the village. The artists, all members of a study group run by Patricia Weaver ATD,NDD produced paintings of a very high standard, especially considering that many of them had never painted before joining the group, indeed one exhibitor had been painting for just seven months. Such was the interest shown by the visitors several people have expressed an intention of joining the classes when they recommence in October. Instead of charging an entry fee a donation was requested for the AECC (Contra Cancer) Campoverde Branch and at the end of the four day exhibition the magnificent sum of €400 was handed over to Tish Hirst of the cancer group. A special thank you must go to Patricia and Geoff Weaver for organising the event, to Eric and Anne Medley for the use of their house and garden to display the paintings, to the artists for all their hard work and not least to the residents of Campoverde for their generosity.

Regional Government Reports On Water Shortage

The Regional Government of Murcia has sent EU Community institutions the results of the report prepared by the Murcia area on the principal socio-economic areas affeted in the region by drought and water shortages.

The Councillor for Agriculture and Water, Antonio Cerdá, sent the document to the European Commission, the European Parliament, and to different representatives of the European Economic and Social Committee (CESSATION) and the Regional Committee (CDR), which act as advisory boards to the European Union. The purpose of this report is to contribute to a better knowledge of the water problems in regions most

affected by the lack of water, such as Murcia. The study, made by the EuroMediterranean Institute of Water, collates the suggestions and points of view of the businesses, scientific institutions and affected parts of Murcian society relating to the lack of water. The announcement came on the commemoration of European Day against Drought and Water Shortages, and is designed to open up the debate over water management and hydraulic resources in Europe. The document included a combination of strategies to help manage water supply and avoid periods of drought,

including the management of the canal system or “trasvases”, desalination plants and recycling procedures for water. Murcia suffers periods of drought despite the good practices of the farmers and agricultors in the use and management of the water, such as saving, treatment and reuse. The EU Advisory Committee last May voted in favour of the transfers between areas of surplus and deficit, as long as these are carefully managed and controlled and there is no waste. The committee also highlighted problems in some areas, such as the high energy costs associated with desalination and the accumulation of pollutants in recycled water.

Concern Over Beach Access The Council for Tourism and Beaches in San Javier has emphasised the need for the users of small craft and jet skis to respect the correct zones for accessing the sea. The Department have been in contact with both the Maritime Agency and the Department for the Demarcation of the Coast the two offices with experience in this matter - to express concerns over the issue and to ask for better control over the access routes in order to protect the rights of all beach users. The proposals for better controls of the access channels coincide with complaints last week from a group of swimmers on the beach at Castillico, where there is an access channel for craft, the only one in more than 3 kilometers of beaches in the Santiago de la Ribera area. The Councillor pointed out that there are certain behaviours which cannot be allowed and that are subject to penalties, and reminded the users of small craft that the access channels are a public service so that the crafts could get out to sea in a

safe manner, without causing any inconvenience to swimmers. The Councillor remains convinced that with the proper use of the access channels, a favourable solution for both bathers and other beach users can be found.

Strong Growth In Tourism For Region

Tourist spending in the Region of Murcia grew by 12% in the first 7 months of this year, demonstrating that Murcia is continuing to attract tourists. The average growth for Spain was 3.5%. In total, visitors to the region spent a whopping 385 million euros, 12.3% more than for the same period last year, according to the data collected by the Institute of Tourism Studies. Tourism contributes greatly to the region’s gross domestic product,

and in the last 5 years has grown from 6.4% of the total to 9.5% by 2007. The Council for Tourism has increased promotional campaigns and targetted different markets in an ongoing drive to promote the region. The latest campaigns have focussed on China, Iceland, Portugal, Italy and Ireland with the aim of increasing foreign tourist’s awareness of the Murcia region and the attractions it has to offer.

Changes To Moto Rules Aim To Reduce Accidents

The Ministry of the Interior and the Traffic Department have introduced changes to the regulations concerning motorbikes and scooters with the aim of driving down the accident rates even further. Whilst the minimum age for obtaining a scooter licence has remained at 14, a figure that critics argue is still too low, other rules should help to improve safety for riders and drivers on the streets. The minimum age is set at 14 due to a government moratorium until September 2010, when no doubt safety campaigners will once more put pressure on the Government to raise the age further. The changes to the rules, in effect from the 1st September, forbid the carrying of passengers on the scooter unless the driver is now over the age of 18. Prior to the new rules, scooter riders could carry passengers from the age of 16. In addition, aspiring riders now have to take a theory exam of 20 questions on the highway code, general driving and road safety before they can get a license. The theory test was previously an optional requirement, but the new legislation makes it a compulsory part of the test. A practical test will also test the young rider’s control of the vehicle, with a closed circuit providing a safe environment for practising the art of moving between cones, driving at slow speeds and passing through narrow spaces as part of the practical test. The changes don’t just affect scooters either, and the test to drive a motorcycle in the classes A1 and A (up to 125cc and above 125cc) have also changed. The main changes are to the practical test, which was previously only taken on a closed track. Now, in addition to this, riders must also pass part of the test taken out on the open road and must be able to demonstrate that they can drive safely at speeds of up to 80 km per hour. The table below summarises the changes to the rules:

The Structure of a 'Huerto'

Drunk As A ….Slug?? Slugs and snails and puppy dogs tails… that’s what little boys are apparently made of. But take a look around your garden, and you will find loads of the first two hiding under the leaves and munching on your plants. So how do you know that you have a problem with our slow-moving, slimy friends? Well the glistening trails across the soil should be the most obvious clue, plus the fact that some of your plants are taking on a ‘half chewed’ skeletal appearance. With the average garden acting as home sweet home to around 15,000 slugs, who spend their days underground

The second stage of planning your huerto, or market garden, is to design the beds and access pathways. Whether you choose simply to have several rectangular beds in a row, with pathways in between or a more complex pattern, such as a cartwheel shape or circular beds, there are some general guidelines to help you. •

Make sure that all parts of the beds can be accessed from the paths. This way you can plant the crops slightly closer together, making better use of the availabe space.

Beds should ideally be no more than 4ft (1.2 metres approx) wide, allowing you to reach all the plants.

Border paths should be at least a foot (30 cm) wide.

Ensure that alternate paths are wider to allow access for a wheelbarrow or other equipment.

Narrow angles and very small beds are difficult to manoeuvre around.

Consider raised beds, using wood or low brick edgings which can be filled with good quality soil.

Mark out the beds on the ground before you begin digging them out. Check that they meet the guidelines for easy of access and tending the plants. •

Paths can be gravel, flagstones or simple bare earth, although when it rains the latter can get very muddy. Remember to keep clear of weeds.

• Once you have decided on the shape you prefer for your vegetable garden, you can start to prepare the soil. Next time: Improving the soil

and come out to party at night, you can never be completely clear of the little pests. So whenever you come across a slug or snail, get rid of it! Whilst you can use chemicals, a cheap equivalent (and perhaps more pleasurable for the slugs) is to make a beer trap. Take an old glass jar and half fill with beer. Dig it into the soil, leaving around an inch protruding above ground level. The scent of the beer will draw the slugs and they will simply fall into the jar, where presumably a slug party to end all parties takes place until the little blighters can’t climb out of the jar (apparently they do drink the beer!). What a way to go!

Art For Impact One of the most important tricks of the interior designer is providing a focal point to a room. And one of the easiest ways to achieve this is through the use and placement of artwork. For homeowners, artwork not only provides a focal point, but it brings walls to life with a personalised finishing touch. It can be in the form of a contemporary painting, a beautiful print or family portrait, but it should always speak volumes about your home and the people who live in it. While there are no hard and fast rules in displaying artwork in the home, unlike in art galleries, you can learn to create the most impact by following some of the gallery guidelines. As a general rule, pictures should be hung with the centre at eye level. In art galleries, frames are not lined up by their top or bottom edges, but the pictures are all centred at the same height. The standard for height for the centre is 60 inches off the floor. However, applying this rule in the home does not always work. While

galleries tend to have standing viewers, your artwork will likely be viewed from a variety of levels. For this reason, you should let the room’s size, function and furnishings be your main guide. For example, in a dining room where artwork will usually be viewed sitting down, you should hang the pieces at the sitter’s eye level instead. For larger artworks with plenty of punch or drama, it is best to keep things simple and place them in a prominent position, such in the centre of a feature wall or behind a dining table. Avoid filling the wall with anything that will distract the eye from the main piece and give it the space it deserves. This is how art galleries always display their most important pieces. You can provide further emphasis by using highlighting. If you have a large wall and a collection of smaller themed artworks, one of the easiest tricks to create an instant focal point is to group them together. Displayed individually, smaller artworks will often look a

little lost on a wall, but when grouped together, they make a much stronger impact. Use similar or matching frames for the best effect. If positioning a group of three or more artworks, the middle picture will be the focus and should be placed accordingly. For artworks of the same size, they work best grouped in a rectangle shape to create the illusion of one larger piece. Whether you’re creating a group of equal sized frames or composing a collection of various sizes, the rule of spacing is the same. Try to have them spaced approximately three inches apart. Position them on the floor before placing the nails and measure carefully before making any holes. It’s also important to have someone hold the piece on the wall so you can see it in perspective.

Eye catcher – for large pictures, keep things simple.

Why am I drinking bottled water? Like many people I like to look after myself. Then one day recently I began to think about why I am buying all these bottles of water. What benefits are to be gained from bottled water as opposed to the water I can get from my tap? I thought that by buying bottled water it was purer and better for me, it came from natural sources and it tasted better. Or was it? There was something niggling in the back of mind about my pre-conceptions on bottled water. So I set myself a task. Was it the best option? After much research on the internet and reading through countless leaflets, I had collected so much information it truly blew my theory right out of the window and made me realise that the way to go was to invest in a water filtration system, especially if I cared about the planet and global warming, which I do. I am one of those people who think it’s time we should all do ‘our bit’ to save the planet. The facts I found out below make quite startling reading… 1. Bottled water is limited in quality. We cannot be sure where it has come from and how it is treated. 2. It is also questionable in quality. It is sometimes less pure than local tap water. 3. It has been proved that some companies have bottled nothing more than tap water. 24% of bottled water is just filtered tap water. 4. Re-cycling – In America it was estimated that approximately 30 billion plastic water bottles were purchased. Of those only 12% are re-cycled. The remaining 25 billion bottles were either land filled, littered or incinerated. It takes over 450 years for a plastic bottle to decompose in landfill sites. 5. One bottle of water takes up to 40 litres of water to produce. 6. Environmentally, it is having a huge impact on our planet, wildlife and is actively contributing to our global warming. 7. Re-cycling plastic water bottles is not a safe option – over time it degenerates and produces carcinogens, phthalate leaches from the plastic. Phthalates are endocrine disruptors, which means they block or mimic hormones, affecting the body’s normal functions. 8. Finally, it’s the most expensive option. The ‘credit crunch’ is having huge global implications. The Euro/£ ratio is the worst in living memory! We can save ourselves a few hundred Euros a year by switching to tap water.

Filtered tap water in the home is the healthiest, safest, most economical and, above all most environmentally sound way to drink water. I could cut down on my bottled water consumption, save money and proactively help save our planet. Did you know that by installing an ‘in home’ water filter system your tap water is…. 1. Free from chemicals! 2. Free from chlorine! 3. It helps remove: Bacteria, Calcium, Chloride, Chlorine, Cryptosporidium Cysts, Flouride, Giardia Cysts, Herbicides/ Pesticides, Nitrate, Particulate, Sodium, Taste and odour metals such as Iron, Lead, Copper, Magnesium, Mercury and Zinc! 4. Bacteria free! 5. Positively green! 6. Incredibly cheap, huge savings on bottled water! 7. When just chlorine is removed, tap water rivals the quality of most expensive bottled water! 8. Crystal clear, great tasting drinking water! So armed with all this information I contacted a company called Healthy H2O who are based on the Camposol Urbanisation just outside Mazarrón. I had seen one of their adverts in one of the free papers which captured my eye. I’m glad I rang them because they were extremely, friendly, helpful and professional. They came out the next day and installed the system which was two small cylinders fitted underneath my sink. One was a Carbon block cylinder, the other a ‘Royal Doulton’ ceramic cylinder. They also fitted a slim and elegant tap onto the sink itself where the filtered water was obtained. The really nice man who fitted the system for me explained that the carbon block filter removes chlorine and chemicals, whilst the ceramic filter takes out all the cysts and bacteria. Since that day, over two weeks ago I have enjoyed drinking pure, clean, great tasting water, free from toxins, bacteria and contaminants. My kettle, once cleaned of the calcium deposits is staying lovely and clean! My morning cuppa tastes better too, no more scum on the top which stains the sides of the cup! I was also given a ‘free water jug’ for my fridge so I don’t have to re-cycle plastic bottles. But do you know what I am really appreciating now? Something I never thought about before… I no longer have to carry heavy bottles home from the shops and I have so much more available space in my cupboards and fridge! But best of all is I am saving money! and helping the planet!

Stewpot to host Company Women Awards Ceremony One of Britain’s best known broadcasters, Ed “Stewpot” Stewart, will be hosting the 2008 Company Women Award’s ceremony at El Lago de la Torre in La Torre Golf Resort, Murcia, Friday 21st November. Following the fantastic success of last year’s gala evening of Company Women’s Awards Ceremony, this year’s event has all the signs of being an even more fabulous evening. The 2007 gala evening was attended by over 300 paying guests, and the organizers of this year’s Awards Ceremony are expecting 4-500 to attend the event. The venue this year is Polaris World’s function hall, El Lago de la Torre, in La Torre Golf Resort near Balsícas in Murcia. This luxury celebration and conference centre is set in beautiful surroundings and boosts all modern technology. The black-tie event will be hosted by one of Radio 1’s biggest stars, Ed Stewart. Ed Stewart became a household name in Britain on pirate radio station Radio London, and went on to have his own show on Radio 1, netting over 16 million listeners for Junior Choice. He successfully made the crossover to TV, presenting both Top of the Pops and Crackerjack. Sponsoring the event has attracted a string of prestigious companies. Main sponsor is ABACO, a Torrevieja based legal and tax advisory company. ABACO is offering their services to clients of all nationalities – having a solid client base not only in Costa Blanca, but as well in the Region of Murcia and Almería. At a recent lunch for sponsors of the Awards, Caroline Clinton, representative for ABACO, said that ABACO feel proud to support female entrepreneurs, not at least because 85% of the company’s staff is female. 1Car1, the British bases car rental company is sponsoring the Business Achiever Award. 1Car1 has recently been setting up a brand new

department within head office to deal solely with the business coming in from Spain. The company has also just launched a brand new website dedicated to customers booking from Spain. 1Car1 is not only sponsoring an award, but has also put a luxury car at the disposal of the overall winner next time she visits the UK. Sponsoring the Start-up Success Star Award is RTA Europe, Business Sales Specialists. RTA Europe is the largest privately owned Business Transfer Agency in Europe and works from the slogan: For us to be this successful, our clients have to be successful – successful in selling! The company was established in 1972, having in excess of 35 years experience in selling businesses priced from as low as 10,000€ up to 50 million euros. The Customer Service Ambassador Award is sponsored by ASSSA Insurance. ASSSA is well known in Costa Blanca, and increasing also in the Region of Murcia, for their personal insurance policies, especially designed for expats. Said Biggy Marshall, Area Manager for ASSSA Insurance in Murcia: It is with special pride that ASSSA is sponsoring The Customer Service Award, as customer service is one of the key elements in ASSSA’s business philosophy. Company Women, the female only network for foreign women in business here in Spain, started with a tentative lunch between a couple of women back in 2005. Since then the nonprofit organisation has been going from strength to strength, and has now more than 400 business women in their database.

Tickets for the glittering gala event cost 44 euros per person, and include welcome drinks reception, three course meal with drinks and entertainment. Tickets can be booked on www. companywomen.org or by phoning Tracey Cavill on 625 814 868.

Shocking Figures For Bird Deaths It doesn’t seem a very nice way to go.. but thousands of birds in Spain each year die as a result of electrocution caused by flying or landing on one of the power lines. It is impossible to estimate the exact figures, but a conservative estimate is “tens of thousands”. The unfortunate birds also cause many power cuts as a result, but the Government is determined to take action to protect both the birds and the householders from the subsequent problems. For the birds, the results can have serious consequences. Consider the Imperial Iberian Eagle, found only on the Iberian Peninsula, and whose breeding population is now estimated to be down to around 240 pairs. Between 1991 and 2003, at least 68 of these regal birds were found to have been electrocuted, a figure that accounts for over 50% of the “nonnatural” deaths amongst the birds and was almost one third of the population between these years. Death by electrocution has grown at an alarming rate for the birds with the increase in the construction of power lines and the growth in the demand for electricity. The Government has now approved a series of measures aimed at protecting the birds and other species that are affected by the problem.

Mazarrón Exceeds 36,000 Inhabitants

Two Seriously Injured In Collision With Police Vehicle A traffic accident earlier this week in Cartagena left two young people seriously injured after the motorcycle they were riding collided with a police vehicle on its way to attend to an emergency. The accident happened at around 10.30pm on the 7th September at the junction of the calle Alfonso XIII with calle Juan Fernández. As a result of the crash, the driver of the bike and his passenger were found to have

serious injuries, whilst one of the officers involved suffered minor injuries. The most serious injuries were suffered by one of the motorcyclists, who was thrown from the bike by the impact and hit the patrol car. The victims were taken to the Hospital de la Arrixaca for treatment. At the time of the accident, the police vehicle was approaching the junction with the emergency signals operating.

Work Starts On New Airport Terminal The Town Hall in Mazarrón have completed a demographic study to evaluate the actual population of the town in order to help meet the needs of the area’s inhabitants. The study is based on information from the last municipal census. The most important fact to emerge is the growth experienced by the area in the last 8 years, from a population of 21,575 people to 36,223, a huge 40% increase. Many of these are foreign residents, and Mazarrón is

now home to people from 83 different countries, according to the statistics. Most of the foreign residents are from the UK, with a total of 6,872 people registered. This is followed by Morrocans (3876), Ecuadorians (2586) , Germans (622) and Romanians (239).

and just over 8,000 arriving from outside the EU.

Mazarrón also has a young population, with only 14.6% of residents over the age of 65. So the Mazarrón mix means that 53.8% of the population are Spanish, and the remainder consists of over 28,000 EU nationals

And luckily for the ladies, there are more men to choose from in Mazarrón, as almost 54 % of those living there are men, and 46% women. But don’t let that put you off Mazarrón is a great place to live, whatever the reason!

The food, the climate and the customs of our host country are cited as the main reasons that seem to attract more foreigners to this coastal corner of Murcia, and many choose to live here all year round.

Construction works have begun on the new airport terminal for the Region of Murcia International Airport, as confirmed by the Council for Public Works, Homes and Transport. One of the first steps has been the technical meeting to co-ordinate the start of the work on the terminal building. Earth movement has begun already, and concreting work has also started on the site. The runway at the new airport will be 3 km long and 45m wide, and is now clearly

visible to visitors to the site. The airport will cover 306 hectares, including 1,500 parking spaces, a bus terminal and taxi ranks. There will be 20,000 employees during the construction phase, and 1,300 personnel needed for the subsequent operation of the facility. The airport, which will cost around 266 million euros to construct, will be capable of handling 15,000 flight operations each year through its 5 boarding gates. In the future this may expand to 9 gates depending on demand.

Road Works Completed Near Roman Baths In Alhama Work to improve the streets around the much visited Roman Baths, Los Baños, in Alhama de Murcia are completed. The aim of the project, which cost just over 400,000 euros, was to remodel the streets in the area around the church of San Lázaro and the calle La Feria. The bulk of the cost, around 75%, was provided by the Council for Public Works, Homes and Transport, with the Town Hall meeting the remainder of the financial requirements. The area is one of the most visited and instantly recognisable in the town of Alhama, as the calle de La Feria leads to the Roman Baths, now declared a monument of Cultural

Interest. The area around the Baths was beginning to look a little run down, say the council, and the road surfaces, parks and furniture were a little past their best! All that has now changed, with the area undergoing a complete face lift. The urban furniture has been replaced , the area around the church has been pedestrianised, and a space has been created for the people of the town to enjoy and use. The steps to the Jardin de los Patos have also been modified to facilitate pedestrian access to the area. The scheme means that it is easier than ever to walk to the church and the Roman Baths, admiring the plaza and fountains along the way.

DVD Release: Smart People Releases 15th September This is a film pitched as a romantic comedy, starring Sarah Jessica Parker and a beard-wearing Dennis Quaid and directed by a first-timer who’s just made the move from television commercials. Sounds terrible, right? Wrong. While there have been a number of successful transitions from the world of music videos to the big screen – the likes of Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry spring instantly to mind – it’s harder at first to think of many directors of adverts that have made the switch. Yet advertising is, if anything, a far more appropriate training ground for Hollywood. After all, while music videos may allow for creativity, in advertising the key requirement is to capture the audience’s attention quickly and to pack as much detail into as short a timeframe as possible. Hunt around the CVs of some of Hollywood’s biggest names and you are bound to find adverts – some directors even got their big break in advertising. Ridley Scott was the man responsible for the iconic Hovis advert featuring a boy pushing his bike up a hill back in the mid-1970s. Whether debut feature director Noam Murro will go on to have a similarly impressive career is as yet uncertain. After all, Scott’s debut movie picked

up an award at Cannes, while his next two – Alien and Blade Runner – are regarded as modern classics. Murro does, however, have a solid track record for picking up nominations for Directors Guild of America awards for his work on commercials, most of which have been characterised by a wry, quirky humour. But the real key to success here is not the director – as skilfully created and promising as this first feature from Murro may be. It’s one of the producers, Michael London, and one of the supporting cast, Thomas Hayden Church – both of whom are best known for their work on the Oscar-winning wine-obsessed buddy movie Sideways, back in 2004. Because although the presence of Sarah Jessica Parker ensured that her involvement was played up in all the publicity, the real relationships at the heart of this film are family ones, with Hayden Church as Quaid’s slacker brother, moving in to help Quaid’s antisocial academic cope with raising his teenage daughter (Juno’s superb Ellen Page). It may well be the fact that Hayden Church is playing a very similar role here as he did as Paul Giamatti’s best buddy in Sideways (albeit without the narcissism and chauvinism) that the similarities to that tip-top indy flick become so evident. Both Smart People and Sideways

Dennis Quaid and Sarah Jessica Parker star in Smart People.

Yes, the growing relationship with Sarah Jessica Parker’s doctor is a part of that rehabilitation – but the real focus is on the rekindling of the relationship between Quaid and his brother and daughter. The end result is an intelligent, amusing and – though this may sound like a cliché – uplifting tale with a welcome message at its heart that it’s never too late to turn your life around. Which should surely count as better than yet another bog-standard romantic comedy in anyone’s books.

Antiques Fair at IFEPA

WHAT'S ON.... & WHERE.... Antiques Fair at IFEPA: The IFEPA exhibition centre is once more set to be the focus of attention in September with the 6th Annual Antiques Fair being held at the centre from the 26th to the 28th September. If you are a lover of beautiful antiques, why not join the thousands of discerning visitors who flock from far flung destinations to browse the stands and search for a bargain? Over the past few years, the fair has evolved into one of Spain´s foremost antiques exhibitions, and there will be thousands of items for sale, all of which have been inspected and examined for authenticity by a panel of experts. The most recent items will be around 40 years old, but many items for sale are fine examples of 19th and 20th century antiques. So if you are looking for a special item for your home, why not call in to the show, held at the IFEPA exhibition hall, Torre Pacheco. More details and a map are available on the website www.ifepa.es. Juan Montoya Retrospective: Also in Torre Pacheco, the exhibition room of the public library in the town are hosting a “Retrospective” of the

work of Juan Montoya. The majority of the works on display are paintings, but there is also a special sculpture: a chair where visitors can write their wishes and dreams. The exhibition is open from Monday to Friday from 18.00 until 21.00 until the 30th September. Álvaro Peña Exhibition: From the 8th to the 20th September, the Galeria Chys in Cartagena is running an exhibition of the works of Álvaro Peña, a Murcian born painter, humourous graphic artist and illustrator. Already a veteran of several exhibitions in the Murcia region, in the last 2 years Peña has been most active in the field of poster design. Feeling peckish? Then head to Bullas for the Feria de la Tapa until the 20th September. For only 2.50 euros between these dates, you can call into selected establishments in the town and taste a tapas, plus a drink in participating bars and restaurants. Each location will offer a selection of 3 different tapas. Each tapas dish will be judged, and there will be prizes for the best, which will be awarded at the close of the event on

the 28th September. The bars and restaurants taking part are: Bar Caracoles, Bar Las Peñas, Burger Cimicalla, Pizzeria la Buena Estampa, Restaurant Club Polideportivo, Restaurant Hotel SG and the Tiracañas Bar Mateo. Visit the Recinto Ferial in Lorca between the 15th and 18th September for the annual agricultural show. The show is reminiscent of an indoor country show in the UK, with prizes awarded for the best livestock, equipment displays by agricultural machinery suppliers, feed merchants and more. If you have an interest in livestock, farming and agriculture it is an event not to be missed. Kids will love the animals, ranging from cute and cuddly baby goats, through to large and inquisitive pigs and huge and ferocious looking bulls! And there are plenty of other shows, displays and stands to capture your attention. There are also plenty of places to sit and have a snack, sampling traditional Murcian specialities.

Carthagineses Y Romanos

1 Let The Battle Commence! Cartagena is the place to be this September as history comes alive on the city’s streets and the Carthaginians and Romans Fiesta kicks off in style. The fun begins on Friday 19th September, and continues throughout the festival until the closing ceremony on Sunday 28th September. First celebrated in 1990, the festival has won several awards and prizes, and in record time of only 10 years was declared a Fiesta of National Tourist Interest. The event celebrates the era of the Second Punic War and chronicles the battles fought between Hannibal Barca and the Roman General Publio Coelio Escipión, starting with the foundation of the city in 223 BC and ending with the Roman victory in 209 BC. During the 10 days of the fiestas there is an incredible atmosphere in the city, with activities taking place throughout the day. But at night, everything really comes alive with the Festival Camp transformed into a huge slice of living history.

Here you will find the battalions of Rome, Greece and Carthage present, and visitors can wander round the camp sampling tapas, meals and drinks typical of the food of our forefathers. Perhaps you’ll find yourself sharing a table with a Roman General, or eating a slice of Hannibal’s wedding cake! There are “base camps” for the 50 legions, 25 Carthaginians and 25 Roman, and each group takes part in several different processions and activities. There is always something happening! Safety is paramount too, and the more modern “troops” of the Local and National Police are on hand in the camp to deal with any emergencies, supported by the Red Cross and the Protección Civil. There is even a small hospital on the site to give medical attention in the event of an emergency. At the entrance to the Camp is a small information hut and also public telephones, whilst the Federation of the Troops and Legions have a stand to share information about the Festival and the programme.

Highlight of The Festival – The Roman Circus One of the most spectacular shows that takes place during the Carthaginians and Romans Festival has to be the re-creation of the Roman Circus. A spectacular event full of colour, lights and sound involving around 1000 ‘actors’ from the 25 Roman legions participating in the festival, it is an unmissable night out. Presided over by the Roman General Escipión and his wife Emilia Paula, the wonderful scenario brings to life a slice of history, complete with circus, gladiators, chariots, horsemanship, soldiers, centurions and more! Thousands of spectators join the event every year, making the show one of the most popular in the fiesta, and allowing those present to suspend belief and travel back to Roman times for a good night out. And it’s up to you, the spectators to decide the fate of the brave

Fascinating Festival Facts • Cartagena was founded as Quart Hadast, Punic for New City in around 227 BC.

2

• Hannibal marched from the city in the Spring of 218 BC to travel over the Pyrenees and the Alps on his now famous epic journey into Italy, with thousands of men and his war elephants!

3

• Hannibal’s battle against the Romans was to last for an epic 16 years. • After a dreadful defeat in 211 almost wiped out the Roman army, a new Commander, Publio Coelio Escipión, was appointed to lead an assault on the city of Quart Hadast. The daring assault by land and sea in the spring of 218 BC was a success, and the city was renamed Carthago Nova, or New Carthage. Later this would become Cartagena. • The General would later defeat Hannibal in the Battle of Zama in 202 BC.

gladiators as the cries echo across every corner of the stadium.... “iugula” for the unlucky whose head will shortly be seperated from their body (well, not literally!) or “mite” and “salve su vida” for the fortunate winners whose lives have been spared and who will be set free. Tickets for this event, which takes place on Wednesday 24th September at 9.15pm can be bought at many outlets in Cartagena and cost only 5 euros. The show takes place once again at the Estadio Municipal Cartagonova, and with each entry you also get a free voucher which can be exchanged for a hamburger and a soft drink at any McDonalds in the town. What an offer! At the moment, tickets can be bought from the ironmongers Sánchez Casado in calle del Carmen, perfume shop San Miguel and in Tankar World in calle San Fernando. Also available from the kiosk in Plaza Juan XXIII, where you can get tickets and more information about the Carthaginians and Romans Festival and the Roman Circus. It is hoped to add more outlets to the list shortly, so watch out for the tickets in establishments in the Cartagena area.

Do you like sitting with the family over dinner, catching up on the latest news – who’s fallen for who, who’s cheating on who, who’s murdered who – without speaking a single word? Millions of people every evening are glued to the box, sometimes for hours on end. Just how do the soaps grip people’s attention?

Come to think of it, how many happy births to a married couple can you recall? If Eastenders is the master of soap dramatics, Coronation Street is the master of comedy. Characters such as Danny Baldwin, Roy Cropper, Les Battersby and Cilla, young Chesney, and Jack and Vera bring warmth and amusement to the screen – a quality that is unique to the show. Eastenders has made attempts to lighten the show with lovable rogues, such as Jim Branning, but who can beat Corrie’s comic characters? Affairs, heartache, murder and unhappy births. While love and happy marriages are rare, tragedy

and tribulation knock on virtually every resident’s door. The big events in today’s British soaps increasingly revolve around the darker side of humanity. Barely one couple or marriage can function without having a seedy affair throwing the wheels of love into chaos. Who can forget the murderous rampage of serial killer Richard Hillman, Katy Harris putting a spanner in the works – and in her dad’s head – Nick Cotton’s attempts to poison his own mother, and Chrissie’s final blow for devious Dirty Den? As for families, they couldn’t be more

complicated. Take Eastenders’ Zoe Slater, who was conceived when Cat’s uncle raped her and is Little Mo’s sister, whose baby, Freddie, was also born from a rape. A happy, centred family with a faithful mum and dad, 2.4 well-behaved children, and a dog moving into Albert Square would be about as likely as the Queen becoming landlady at The Woolpack.

So, what makes a great soap opera? Entertaining larger than life characters, murderous plots, affairs, tragedy, and misery, sprinkled with love and comedy – all in one episode. Thank your unlucky soap stars that life doesn’t imitate art that closely.

Lots of lather with Betty´s hotpot

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't give in to demands. Instead, choose who will accompany you. Jumping to conclusions or letting your outrage get the better of you will not bring results or help you depict a good image of yourself. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You'll be fine-tuned when it comes to picking up information if you listen to the pros and cons of a different philosophy or lifestyle. Pick and choose which aspects of what you have learned can be incorporated into your day-to-day life. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Try not to succumb to pressure from a colleague using emotional blackmail to manipulate a situation. You are better and smarter and, if you are truthful and go to the top with your objectives, you will be the one to break ground in the end.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Step outside your world for a moment and you will see clearly that you are dealing with someone who isn't thinking straight. Get away from the madness. Sign up for anything that will take your mind off your personal troubles.

LIBRA (Sep 23-Oct 22): Get on with your plans before it's too late. Procrastination will lead to disrespect and cause you to fall behind. Don't give in to demands. Stop waffling and start producing.

LEO (July 23-Aug 22): You've let others hold you back for too long. Get involved in new friendships but, most of all, learn to say no to the people dragging you down. Recognize who's causing the problem and do something about it.

SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21): If you gave your all trying to keep the peace or bring people together and it didn't happen, move on to safer territory that has the potential for you to be successful professionally and personally. Change will be rewarding in the end.

VIRGO (Aug 23-Sep 22): Make alterations that ensure your success. If you aren't the one to make the changes, someone else will make them for you. It's better to stay in control than to be saddled with what someone else wants for you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): Not everyone will be on your side. Look at the big picture and decide if something is worth your while. Refuse to let someone make you feel you owe him or her something. Turn the tables -- you can win.

AECC in Campoverde receive a wonderful donation by Ray Marsh

Hayley Moore-Bevan is the granddaughter of Bobby Daubeney who for many years, along with his wife Sheila, was a stalwart of the Campoverde Branch of AECC (Contra Cancer). Whilst on holiday in Campoverde, Hayley decided she wanted to raise money for AECC in his memory. To this end Hayley decided to run in the Oasics British 10 km run in July and seek sponsorship both here in Campoverde and in the UK. After successfully completing the run Hayley was proud to present the Campoverde Branch of AECC with a cheque for €720. A worthy tribute to her grandfather donated to a very worthy cause. On Friday 1st August 2008 a cheque was presented to the AECC Scanner Appeal by Tony Horn from HELP Murcia Mar Menor for the value of 3000 euros. HELP Cancer Support Group raised the money by having various auctions and tombolas throughout this year. At the presentation were, Tony Horn – President of HELP Murcia Mar Menor, Maggie Milne – Head of Cancer Support Group, Isobel Baker from Cancer Support Group, Jackie James from the AECC. We would like to send our extended thanks to those who were involved in the events that helped raise the money for the much needed Scanner.

A special thank you must go not only to Hayley but also to all those who generously sponsored her.

The Journey to La Huerta

a large plastic container to catch the inevitable spills, we set off back down the mountain. Very slowly. I’m proud to say that we never spilt a drop of gravy, but we were followed down the hill by several dogs, lured by the smell of the freshly roasted turkey in the boot. On Christmas Day, we simply lit the BBQ and cooked the traditional sausage and bacon rolls on that, losing only 2 to our cheeky cat who sat and watched them cook from the terrace. Christmas was now just around the corner and the lack of a kitchen was proving problematic, to say the least. Determined to give the family a full traditional dinner to celebrate our first Christmas in our new home, I was forced to get creative.

I didn’t want to be stuck up in Aledo cooking on Christmas morning whilst the children were at home opening their presents. However, with a bit of forward planning and the purchase of a good sized BBQ, we had the answer.

Salvation came in the shape of a good friend, Liz, who lives in Aledo and just happened to be returning to the UK for the festive season. “Take the keys to the house. That way, you can cook the turkey here and take it down to the house for lunchtime.” It seemed like a good idea, but the problem was that

Late on Christmas Eve, I took several loads of laundry and a huge turkey up to Aledo (oh yes, we had no washer either, and Liz had been doing my laundry for weeks!), and Cameron and I sat and read and played games whilst the turkey roasted. A few hours later, with said urkey safely ensconsed in

With the wonders of a microwave/mini oven, even the stuffing, bread sauce and the sprouts (much to everyone’s disgust) were possible. The sausages proved such a success that we have vowed to cook them that way every year, to commemorate our first creative Christmas cooking experience in La Huerta. This year, with all mod cons and a fitted kitchen it might just be a little easier! Next time: We have just moved in...but the house needs changing!

Red Tomato Chutney There is a glut of tomatoes as the end of summer approaches, so why not take advantage of the ridiculously low prices, around 50 cents a kilo, and make some chutney? Here is the recipe I am using this year, you can take the basic chutney recipe and modify it to suit your own taste with the addition of sultanas to sweeten, or chillies for a real kick! This chutney takes around 20 minutes to prepare, then 2 hours to simmer. The quantities stated will yield between 2 and 3 jars, depending on the size of the containers. 2 lbs tomatoes, peeled and chopped 3 large onions, diced finely Half pint malt vinegar 1 lb sugar (dark brown muscovado gives a delicious “treacley” taste) Salt 1½ tablespoons plain flour 1 tablespoon mustard powder 1 tablespoon curry powder 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional) 1) Place the chopped tomatoes and onion in a colander and sprinkle with salt. Leave for a few hours and rinse off the liquid. 2) Place in a saucepan and add ¾ of the malt vinegar. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. 3) Stir in the sugar gradually. 4) Blend the flour, mustard powder, curry powder and cayenne pepper into a paste with the remaining vinegar. 5) Add the paste to the pan and stir. Simmer gently for around 1½ hours. The chutney has reached the right consistency when a spoon drawn through the mix leaves a clean path on the bottom of the pan, with no liquid. 6) Decant into warmed, sterilised jars. 7) Cover and store in the fridge. This chutney develops flavour with time, but you can eat if straight away if you wish. Ideal with cooked meats, cheeses and in sandwiches. I add chillies to mine for an extra kick!

The Calorie Cheat Contributed by Weight Watchers Leader Liz Edmiston.

Weekly meeting upstairs Rumours Bar, Sector B Camposol, every Wednesday at 10.15am. Eat healthily and cut down on your calorie intake with our new healthy eating guide. •

• • •

Don’t just remember to watch the food you eat, you also have to count the calories in the stuff you drink too. Soft drinks and alcoholic drinks can contain a surprising amount of hidden calories. And when the weather is warm it is very tempting to keep drinking plenty of fluid ... of the wrong sort! Get smart, make a few simple switches and see the difference. Buy low sugar or ‘diet’ versions of your favourite soft drinks. A tin of regular cola has around 150 calories. A tin of the equivalent diet drink has just 3 calories. The popular drink “La Casera” or gaseosa is also a good low cal choice. If you are fond of the odd ‘cerveza’, try drinking the occasional ‘light’ beer instead. You will cut the calories from around 155 a tin to 100. Alcohol-free beer is even lower in calories. Or why not make a shandy with gaseosa instead to quench your thirst? Consider making your own low calorie versions of favourites such as Tinto Verano and Sangria. For Tinto, allow 100ml of red wine per person and measure out into a jug, add a dash of lemon juice, a teaspoon of brandy and dilute well with gaseosa. Add chopped fruit and enjoy for around half the cals of the shop bought version. Always check the calorie content of the nutritional label. Some drinks that you may think would be OK to drink freely have a surprisingly high sugar content. Ice tea is a good example of this, but there is generally a light or low sugar version on sale too and you really won’t notice the difference in taste.

I Don’t Give A Fig!

Fig Facts • •

Figs are eaten widely in the Mediterranean area, and the main producers are Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Israel, France, the USA and Brazil. Within Spain, Huesca, Lerida, Caceres, Alicante and Murcia are among the main fig growing regions. Figs can be classified into three groups according to the colour of their skin: white (actually white, yellow or green when ripe), coloured (bluish tinge) and black (dark or dark red skin) varieties.

Here’s a delicious recipe for Sticky Figs , enjoy – well at least until the season ends!

Method - nice and easy: 1. Take 8 ripe figs and cut the tops off. Ease the figs open. 2. Stand the figs up in a shallow casserole dish and put a small knob of butter in the base of each fig. 3. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with crushed pistachio nuts or almonds and lightly sprinkle with cinnamon. 4. Place under a hot grill for 5 minutes until the honey and butter have combined to make a sticky sauce. Serve hot with Greek Yoghurt or a dollop of creme fraiche.

"

Figs are currently in abundance, piled up high at the local markets and deliciously sweet. The season runs from August until late October, but make the most of it, as these delicate fruits are at their best when eaten very fresh.

Figs are generally oval or pear shaped. Figs are quite small, about 60 mm long and around 30 to 40 grammes weight. Unlike other fruit, wrinkles on a fig are good sign! It means that the fig is ripe. Figs are a healthy choice, with only 66 calories per 100g. They provide a wide range of vitamins and additional fibre too.

Divorce - Will Your Dog Come Off Worse? by David the Dogman

house soiling dog, or one showing symptoms of an anxiety-related behaviour, where it is apparent that the dog has an inability to cope with life, I always ask if there has been a death, separation or indeed a divorce which could have triggered the problems, as this behaviour is a typical expression of canine anxiety.

David is a 'People - Canine Educator' who works and lives in Marbella

Divorce is a sad fact of life. These human problems can cause stress to dogs. A dog is a social animal bonded to a family routine and a way of life that relies on us for their mental, physical and emotional welfare. Dogs of course are frequently denied consideration when it comes to difficulties in relationships. When couples shout and argue with each other this will indeed affect the dog (and also the cat). Our blacker moods and tantrums will have an adverse effect on our pet dog. Nervous behaviour is often caused by the owner’s actions. Whenever I am called to a home where owner’s have a howling, barking, destructive, digging,

Another extreme behaviour pattern I have observed is dogs going to the bottom of the garden, and staying close to walls which is often seen when a dog’s instinct tells it that it is dying. In the wild dogs leave their packs and go away to die. I always ask the owner of the house if there are any known medical problems - if none are known and a separation has taken place then these behaviour patterns must be considered as an expression of extreme canine anxiety.

Creatures Of Habit

Dogs are creatures of habit and function to our timetable - wakeup time, meal time, bedtime, playtime, etc. Some dogs find it harder to accept a change of routine than others and especially hard for the older dog, who more often than not will go

rapidly downhill when faced with the upheaval that accompanies divorce. Our pet dog is a social animal, and a silent watcher, who is able to pick up our vibrations, any change in its schedule or environment, or change in atmosphere caused by arguments within the family. Perhaps a member of the family may march out in a huff, slamming doors. This will cause stress to the pet dog. The dog hears all the shouting and human aggression, and this can be frightening to it. Some owners will even put their dog outside the room when they argue. Now the dog sees this as a form of punishment. Of course, the dog in the household can have a positive influence on what is going on. It is known that divorce can cause behavioural changes in a child, from bursts of angry rebellion to periods of deep brooding silence. Dogs play a beneficial role, since a child can make the dog his very best friend and confident to be hugged, cried with, and told any secret, knowing his best friend will neither pass judgement nor tell anyone. When a couple separate or divorce, I always advise that

the best solution is to keep the children and dog (or dogs) together. Divorce is traumatic enough but dogs can, in fact, play a very important role to cope with, and express, his or her feelings. The other alternative, that of sharing a dog between two households, rarely works, since this causes stress to the couple, the child and the dog. However, as couples have usually provided, trained and loved the dog together, it is their responsibility to decide what is best for it now.

I was once called to the home of a very nice lady who informed me that her German Shepherd dog, Rex, had started howling and pacing. I asked the usual questions to find that she had recently separated from her husband but they had agreed he could visit their dog every Sunday to take him to his regular agility class. Not being a marriage counsellor I found that I was placed in the position whereby I thought it would be in the interest of Rex to arrange to meet both the lady and her ex-husband together! Meeting them was not only a strain for them but also for me.

Cassie

is a medium - large sized German Shepherd cross. Born Aug 06. She is being cared for by her foster parent and below is the very detailed description by her. Cassie is fully vaccinated and spayed. Her personality is a little unpredictable, but only due to her insecurity - she continues to be very nervous, but after all this time I personally do not think there is room for much further improvement. Walks well on a lead, is very clean and non-destructive in the house. She would do best in a house without other dogs as she is easily distracted by them and relates to other dogs better than humans - once separated she concentrates on the person. She will never be a brave confident animal, but this was taken away from her as a puppy. She will be a faithful dog, as she could leave me at any time she pleased, but never has. She will eat anything, loves her chicken and biscuits having two meals a day, enjoys her chews and you can get her to do most things with treats. I have birds that are not caged and a cat, and she has never made any aggressive actions towards them. I have always fed her separately from my other animals as she eats much slower, but has shown a little food aggression, but that being her only major fault. She stands for bathing and likes to be groomed. Cassie has had a lot of freedom because I live in an area where there are no roads or anything else to harm her, so has had lots of land to run in. She enjoys company, but is also happy just sitting by herself.

Honey

Beautiful girl born mid 2007, found abandoned on Camposol. She had no energy and had been lying in 40 degrees of direct sunshine before people realised that she was unable to move. She must have fallen asleep and then become exhausted and dehydrated. She was rushed to the vet where an examination revealed that she had a severe ear infection and eggs that were ready to hatch in her ears. The vet assured us that had we not rescued her she would have died once the eggs had hatched. She is doing really well in kennels and after her treatment has become confident and quite playful. She is a real credit to the carers she has had for the 10 days since rescued. She is very friendly and not aggressive to anyone including other dogs.

We have many dogs looking for good homes. Please contact our Rescue Officer on 699 352 818

Rental Guarantee by Daniel Codes Llamas, Chartered Accountant and senior partner of IBERBRIT LEGAL. Last month, in this same column, we wrote about some of the problems associated with renting your property. In particular we highlighted some of the precautions a landlord can take when renting long-term so as to avoid having to serve an eviction order on the tenants. Following on from that article, a British couple, both Spanish residents, raised a specific case which I would like to use by of an example. It’s about a situation that clearly demonstrates the defencelessness of the landlord over those of the tenant - in this case, by breach of contract. Two years ago G & S bought a property in Torrevieja (Alicante). With the onset of the real estate crisis their incomes dropped to such a level so they couldn’t afford to pay the mortgage. Consequently they put the house up for rent. For over a year G & S were then able to regularly pay the mortgage as a result of the rental income. Two months ago the tenants contacted them to let them know that they could no long pay the rent but, as they had lost theirs jobs and nowhere else to go, they said they would stay in the house until the eviction order was served.

G & S can’t throw them out of the house for the simple reason that they would be committing a crime so the only other option is to start the eviction process as outlined by the law. G & S won’t be able to collect any rent until the eviction order has been served and carried out, although at the same time they will have to: * Cover the mortgage repayments * Cover the community fees * Pay the taxes * Provide a provision of funds to cover the legal costs. (Solicitors often ask for this to be paid up front so as to cover the tenants’ expenses, should they be bankrupt.) * Afford the cost of not keeping the property well maintained During the period of this process it is clear that the owners need the rent money in order to pay the mortgage, and when it fails to come in, it becomes impossible for them to face up to these payments and much less to the rest of the previously stated obligations. In reality, due to frequent delays in the justice system it is uncertain as to how

long this process will actually take and depends on how quickly the sentence is sent out and served. Under normal circumstances this shouldn’t take more than 6 months but in some similar cases has been know to take more than 2 or 3 years. Confronted with such a situation, G&S thought about selling the property but with the drop in property prices, the current market price would not cover the outstanding amount on the mortgage. In any case, if they were to find a buyer it wouldn’t be very easy to close the deal with squatters in the house. The conclusion is as sad as it is inevitable. As G & S don’t have the funds to pay all the expenses previously mentioned, they resigned themselves to losing the house and giving the keys to the bank without even having been able to take the tenants to court. To avoid these types of situations there is now a new legal mechanism called ‘Garantía de Alquiler®’ which helps with reducing the time involved in the legal procedure to a bare minimum - for a small fee which anyone can afford.

The rental guarantee (Garantía de Alquiler®) ensures to both the owners and tenants that their rental contract will be upheld by means of quick procedures carried out by specialists within that field. ‘Garantía de Alquiler®’ is available for a one off fee of 52 euros which covers the entire duration of the contract period and any possible extension, without the need to register it or renew it. You can add it to any new or existing rental contract. This means that from the outset, both the landlord and tenant voluntarily agree that should the contract be broken then it will be the relevant court that will oversee the proceedings. Iberbrit legal have now become authorised suppliers of Garantía de Alquiler® so that we can provide a better service to our clients.

How Food affects your child’s behaviour by Liz Edmiston If you think of your child’s body as an engine, then the ‘fuel’ that we put in affects their performance. Our aim is to put in food that helps them to perform more effectively. The food that we give to our kids has a direct impact on their behaviour and their ability to do well and concentrate at school. Poor diet has been considered by some experts to be a factor in juvenile crime. Changing your kids’ diet (and indeed the whole family’s diet) can have the following benefits: • • • •

better academic performance calmer behaviour better concentration less agressive and argumentative

Find a healthy way to start the day I’m sure that you have heard this piece of advice many times, but start the day with

a good breakfast, consisting of complex carbohyrates and protein. These foods will give your child a slow release of energy throughout the morning. Examples would be porridge oats, baked beans on wholewheat toast, wholewheat pancakes with fruit, muesli and high fibre cereals, eggs in any form or lean back bacon. Avoid high sugar ‘quick fix’ foods High sugar, over processed foods give our body a quick rush of energy, a sugar ‘high’, but it doesn’t last. The resultant rises and falls in blood sugar levels leave our bodies confused, and children become hyperactive, jumpy or just plain naughty as their body struggles to cope with these surges. By midmorning at school they will be tired, flagging and struggling to concentrate. So high sugar cereals, sweet pastries, chocolate loaded

croissants etc. should be off the menu! Cut down on additives Try to steer clear of too many over processed foods. Additives, chemicals and dyes can have an adverse effect on many children, resulting in food intolerance and allergies. Tartrazine (E102) is found in many yellow dyed foods, and has become famously linked with hyperactivity in kids. The best thing to do is to feed your kids as much ‘home cooked’ food as you can. That way you have control over the exact ingredients, and can have an input into what they put into their body. Remember to include the healthy, slow release energy foods in the lunch box too, as that way your kids will maintain energy and concentration levels throughout their school day.

For some couples, the presence of jealousy is all too destructive for the relationship to survive. However, in most common cases, jealousy causes no threat to a couple because the trust they’ve built up is too strong to crumble. In fact, in good, healthy relationships, jealousy serves to protect love because it reminds the couple not to take each other for granted. It can encourage couples to appreciate each other and make a conscious effort to make sure the other person feels valued.

We’ve all let jealousy overcome our rational thoughts at times, no matter how much we love to project an image of strength and security. Without doubt, we’re at our most vulnerable to feelings of jealousy when we’re in a relationship.

The sight of a woman laughing a little too much in the company of another man as she frantically flicks her hair is enough to convince her partner she’s having saucy thoughts about the stranger. And the thought of a man spending every working day in

Jealousy heightens emotions, making love feel stronger and sex more passionate. In small, manageable doses, jealousy can be a positive force in a relationship. But when it’s intense or irrational, the story is very different. Sometimes jealous feelings get out of proportion and the resulting angry reaction can

put a huge strain on a relationship, leaving the other partner feeling as though they’re constantly walking on eggshells to avoid a jealous reaction. The jealous partner, often aware of their problem, swings between self-blame and justification. So if you’re the jealous member of your relationship and you desperately don’t want to lose your partner, follow these selfimprovement tips. Give yourself a reality check: take a good look at those things that trigger your jealousy and ask yourself how realistic the threat is. What evidence do you have that your relationship is in danger? And is your behaviour actually making the situation worse? Use positive self-talk: when you start feeling the twinges of

jealousy, remind yourself that your partner loves you, is committed to you and respects you. Tell yourself you’re a loveable person and that nothing’s going on. Seek reassurance: one of the best ways to beat jealousy is to ask your partner for reassurance. Make sure you don’t nag or bully, but rather share your insecurities and ask them to help you overcome the problem. Occasional jealousy is natural and can keep a relationship alive, but when it becomes intense or irrational it can seriously damage a relationship. If you have concerns, try talking it through with your partner, a trusted friend or, in particularly serious cases, you might want to consider seeing a counsellor.

Let Your Imagination Run Riot At Ceutimagina! by Liz Edmiston

Ceutimagina is an innovative art and science centre located in the town of Ceuti, Murcia. Formerly an old canned food factory, the site was completely refurbished by architect Fernando de Retes, and the result is a wonderful exhibition complex suitable for any type of display. The best of the art and science combine at Ceutimagina and the everchanging programme means that visitors never get bored! The 5 exhibition halls constantly update their displays.

Ceutimagina will appeal to all age groups, from the youngest budding scientists to the older art lovers. Many of the exhibits are interactive, meaning that cries of “don’t touch!” are a thing of the past as the kids play and learn through experimenting.

the display has 4 different sections with hands-on experiments and animatronic figures to delight and possibly surprise visitors.

Since the opening event in 2004, Ceutimagina has been home to optical illusions, dinosaurs, giant bugs and more. Works by Goya and Salvador Dalí have also been on show.

“Myths and Legends” is an exhibition inspired by folklore and tales of terror, and it is up to you to separate the facts from the fiction! Was Dracula a real person? How did the Egyptians make a mummy? Is it true that werewolves appear with the full moon? Are you brave enough to find out?

But for the Autumn 2008 season, the centre has

Summer Hair Repair

The summer sun may have kissed your locks this year, leaving you with natural golden highlights and windswept locks - if you are very lucky! The reality for most of us is that the sun and the humidity causes dry hair, split ends, frizz and more! Sun, wind, salt water, chlorine, heat treatments, chemicals... your poor hair really suffers in the hotter months.

● Waxing

● Thai Massage

● OPI Manicure

REVIVE Health & Beauty

So now that the end of summer is approaching, what can you do to repair some of the summer sun damage and get healthy, glossy hair for the autumn? Try the following tips to reduce some of the damage:

● CACI ULTRA non-surgical face lifts A genuine alternative to cosmetic surgery

FIRST TREATMENT FREE @ Shape & Tone Los Alcázares Contact Sarah on 618 111 398

● OPI Pedicure

● Dermalogica Facials

Jojoba oil gently rubbed into the end of the hair can help soften dry ends and will help smooth the frizzies. It can be used as a conditioning treatment prior to shampooing. For an extra deep conditioning treatment, apply loads of your usual conditioner last thing at night. Wrap a towel around your head or wear a shower cap and leave it on overnight. Shampoo off as normal in the morning. Get a trim. Even if you are growing your hair trimming the ends can

help. Aim for around every 6 to 8 weeks to keep hair in tip top condition. If you blow dry or heat treat your hair in any way, try a leave-in conditioner or a special product designed to protect the hair from heat damage. Straighteners and curling irons have a lot to answer for! Try reducing the water temperature when you wash your hair. A cool or cold rinse will help to increase natural shine. Try using a clarifying shampoo to get rid of the accumulation of styling products, chemicals and other nasties that make hair dry and dull. A good shampoo should remove

all the residue and leave hair naturally shiny.

And how to avoid the problems next year? Well, try to protect your hair with a good sun protection serum. Failing that, slather some of your regular sun cream onto your hair and comb it through. Just like the rest of your body, your hair and scalp need protecting from the sun. The best solution of all...get a hat and wear it! Don’t just think baseball cap, there are some really stylish alternatives around now. As the old saying goes, prevention is better than a cure, and for your hair that certainly is true.

On the Water by Shane Cole. Go-N-Sail, Mar Menor

Sailing Courses Having spent the summer sailing around Mazarrón and surrounding areas, it’s time for us to get back to our more usual roles of teaching people to sail under the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) scheme. The RYA is the governing body for leisure boating in the UK, it has training centres worldwide and such is its following that many countries including Australia and New Zealand have incorporated the RYA training scheme into their existing sail training programmes.

acquired on previous outings and introduces sailing theory along with navigation and improved seamanship.

All courses follow a predetermined structure to ensure that all key content is covered, so wherever you train throughout the world you should be guaranteed a safe, informative and FUN week.

At Mar Menor Sea School we teach all of the above and run courses throughout the year.

Higher level qualifications include Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster, where greater emphasis is placed on sailing skills and knowledge. Most RYA Training Centres also offer the International Certificate of Competence (ICC), this is the licence that Spanish Authorities expect all skippers of SSR boats to carry.

Sailing dates for your diary

19th-22nd September – Mazarrón Cruise in Company, all boats owners and crew welcome. Mid October – Yachtmaster and Coastal Skipper training, sailing to Gibraltar and beyond into tidal waters - we guarantee first class training and adventure rolled into one.

For more information on any of the sailing courses please contact Debbie on 695 326 184.

Courses are available to suit all abilities from total novice to seasoned salty - for beginners Start Sailing and Competent Crew will provide you with the basics and give you an understanding of what happens onboard and more importantly the desire to continue learning and gain more experience. Day Skipper expands on those basic skills

Mazarrón Bowls Club Mazarrón Bowls Club is now up and running at the end of three year’s of struggle to get established, develop an initial membership, register a constitution and finally establish a rink to play on. Not to be confused with crown green bowls, the Club is committed to the game of lawn or flat green bowls which is already widely played in Spain with its own National Championships, international representation and network of clubs. Mazarrón Bowls Club has a growing active membership with in excess of 120 members and is keen to expand and enroll more playing members. The playing green is situated within the sports complex at Hacienda del Alamo just outside Fuente Álamo and reached most easily via the signposted Salida 21 from the new Alhama de Murcia-Cartagena Autovía. There are eight rinks in play at any time with open Club Mornings designated on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. On Sunday mornings there are coaching sessions

for children, beginners and intermediate players with a fully registered coach on hand. Those with a new or enquiring interest in the game will be made most welcome and may come along and play for a nominal green fee before committing to Membership of the Club. Essential initial equipment including bowls is available at the Club or can be hired. At this time of year the Club is just about to start its Autumn/ Winter programme of activities. In addition to its open “roll-ups”, the Club’s more formal Triples League Competition is just about to get underway and at the same time shadowed by the Club Domestic Championships in several categories. At the end of September and the beginning of October there are two Inter-Club matches to be played – one at home against the Cabereo Club on tour from Almeria and a second away to Indalo Club at Mojacar to contest the Ex-Presidents Cup which is played for annually. On Sunday 21st September there will be an opportunity to see the “stars” in action at the Club’s charity competition in aid of MABS. Mazarrón Bowls Club embraces players of all abilities but also wishes to be recognized for a good friendly and social spirit. In September there will be a fun garden games and music party, then later President’s Day and Lunch, and in December there will be the annual dinner–dance preceding Christmas. In the New Year there will be the annual Dinner and Prizegiving to look forward to. Anyone with an interest should contact Doug Macfarlane at 968 42 99 80 or Gordon Tottey at 968 13 18 46 or refer to the Club’s website www.mazarronvillas.eu/mazarron_bowls_club.htm.

The new season for Mazarrón CF Times are very difficult for all the football teams in Spain that are sponsored by building companies, as a result of the rapid and deep turndown in the industry. Mazarrón CF is no exception. Sponsored for the last two and a half seasons by Grupo San Antonio, the plan was to get the team into the Segunda B league and hopefully stay there. That was not to be however, as the team was relegated after only one season in Segunda B. San Antonio could have walked away at that stage but they have not done so. However, the budget for running the club this year is considerably lower than last and the immediate consequence of this has been that not one of last year’s squad has been retained. Other players have been brought in, including, much to the delight of the supporters, Quintana, who was the top scorer in the team for their promotion season, but who was unable to turn professional due to his career as a teacher. He has been joined by another player from that season, Kike, and a host of other signings have been concluded. Several preseason friendlies have taken place. Quintana scored a hat trick in the first, a 4-2 win at Puente Tocinos, and this was followed by a 1-0 defeat at Pilar de La Horadada, albeit only to a second half penalty. Following this match was

the inaugural contest for the Mazarrón Trophy against Bala Azul, their rivals from Puerto. Mazarrón won an entertaining encounter 1-0 to lift the trophy. The sternest test came with a match against newly-promoted Ciudad Lorqui. Despite being out-played early on, and conceding a goal, Mazarrón fought back and equalized through captain Gomez. The game ended a goal each, a very creditable result against the area’s newest all stars. This was followed by a 5-0 crushing of Totana, even without Quintana. On the last Sunday in August, the season started for real. Before the match, Los Amigos de Mazarrón CF presented a cheque for 2,000 euros to the President of the Club as a sign of their continued commitment to supporting the Club as tangibly as possible. Mazarrón entertained CD Cieza and despite gaining an early lead through Quintana after a wonderful diagonal ball by Javi, the team was hard-pressed to hold out for their 1-0 victory. In fact the goal keeper Soto was probably the man of this particular match, making a series of fine saves, including one from the penalty spot.

First of September and truly Spanish autumnal conditions, (well if the summer is over it’s then autumn okay?). Hot, blue skies, which means shorts, ankle socks, straw hats and that’s just the greenkeepers. Super conditions for golf and we decided to have a Three Ball Texas Scramble, to mix up the players, and with eleven tee times we had a full compliment of players. Talking of which we had a few of those flying around

Also we had a new lady member, Ms Pat Gingel, and she was the sole female on the day, which is nice, she drove all the way from Sucina to be with us and only got lost once or was it….? Never mind she made it in time, it was good that she was there, there was no swearing from the 32 men, but we did have to have a word with Pat about it when she missed a putt! Our Captain tried a new method of equalling out the Texas Scramble handicaps, which worked out well. This was by the following Low Handicap x 0.3, Middle Handicap x 0.2 and the High handicap x 0.1, add them together and this is deducted from the medal score at the end.

The scores for the all the teams ranged from nett 72.5 to 60.7 which is quite good scoring. Another first, Mick (M&S) Littlewood was not in the frame. The results on the day were: First with 60.7: Pat Gingell Reg Palmer Gary Merritt Second with 63.6: Dave Greatrex Dave Winder Rob Ross Nearest the Pins: Hole 9: Paul Lossley Hole 14: Ivie Davies NTP 3rd Shot Hole 15: Bernard Cross

Our next game is, at Mar Menor, on the 15th September, another new venue for most of our members. We are now planning our 2009 calendar and there will be some more new venues. For such a new Society they are now members of The Vega Baja Premier Golf League, and have a team entered for the Bonalba Resort Trophy. We wish them well. In October we are having our first anniversary dinner at The Venue, the date is the 6th and you should contact Social Secretary only, Alan Barratt mobile: 655 237 699.

ime for A T Viva Beryl Cook!

When I was in my younger days, I weighed a few pounds less, I needn't hold my tummy in To wear a belted dress. But now that I am older, I've set my body free; There's comfort of elastic Where once my waist would be. Inventor of those high-heeled shoes My feet have not forgiven; I have to wear a nine now, But used to wear a seven. And how about those blasted tights They're sized by weight, you see, So how come when I put them on The crotch is at my knee? I need to wear these glasses As the print's been getting smaller; And it wasn't very long ago I know that I was taller. Though my hair has turned to grey and my skin no longer fits, On the inside, I'm the same old me, the outside's changed a bit.

Laugh

But, on a positive note... I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Cook admired the work of the English visionary artist Stanley Spencer, his influence evident in her compositions and bold bulky figures. Another influence was Edward Burra, who painted sleazy cafes, nightclubs, gay bars, sailors and prostitutes, although, unlike Burra, she does not paint the sinister aspects of scenes. She was described by Victoria Wood as "Rubens with jokes". She was known as a "funny artist"

I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a 'life.' I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life just being a doormat. You need to be able to throw something back.
