The campaign aims to make drivers aware that they are approaching a stretch of road with a high accident rate, significantly above the average for the region. Drivers should then adjust their speed accordingly, after being aware of the increased risk on that particular stretch of road. Work has begun to sign the total of 35 stretches of roads and 3 accident blackspots have been highlighted on the 3,300 kilometres of Murcian roads. This will be the first step, with improvements where possible to the roads being made at a later date. The signs will advise drivers to drive with caution, and in the next few months over 70 of the signs will be put in position. The campaign will be combined with other actions to reduce the rate of accidents, such as the improvements to the infrastructure and highways themselves. And if lives can be saved as a result, it will prove a very worthwhile initiative.

Dangerous Roads Be Flagged Up The Region of Murcia is to become the first Autonomous Community to flag up stretches of road with a higher accident rate in a drive to further improve the safety of its roads. In an initiative called “Put the Brakes On!”, the Council for Public Works and Highways have begun to place signposts at the stretches of regional roads deemed to be “Tramos de Concentración de Accidentes”, with a high incidence of accidents. Over the next few months the campaign will be subject to media promotion, with TV and radio adverts publicising the campaign, and the need to reduce speed and drive with caution at the accident blackspots. Last year, 2741 people died on Spain’s roads, and traffic accidents were the main cause of death for young people between the ages of 15 to 29 years. It is one of the most serious issues facing Spanish society, and the need to cut the accident rates is seen as paramount to the safety of road users.

President Of Murcia Has Confidence In Banks The President of the Autonomous Community of Murcia, Ramón Luis Valcárcel, has stated that he is confident in “ the strength and good health” of the region´s savings banks to weather the current economic crisis.

the Region thanked the banks for supporting the area´s businesses and public sector companies, and said that their confidence has contributed to the continuing rhythm of growth experienced by the region of Murcia.

The President´s confident words came as part of a speech made last week at the International Congress for Savings Banks, celebrated in Murcia, amid concerns that some of the smaller banks may be forced to merge with other companies to remain viable.

Banks such as the Caja Mediterraneo are involved in the funding of several key development projects for Murcia, such as the building of the new airport at Corvera. The Bank´s President was also present at the event. Residents of Murcia have continued to benefit from the resulting improvements and developments to the

exception of water. Water prices will rise at a rate of 1.4% above inflation to reflect the increasing costs of projects such as desalination plants and the programme of modernisation of the water systems that began this year. The increase will add around 70 cents to the average bill.

The prices of everyday purchases, such as bus tickets, have been reduced. A passenger buying a book of 20 tickets this year will actually pay 20 cents less per journey than in 2007. Transport grants have also been held for students, pensioners and large families. Almost 1.2 million euros has been set aside for these subsidies, which also have a positive impact in encouraging more people to use public transport. This helps to save energy and is better for the environment.

However, there will be more help for pensioners, who will not pay for any water consumption less than 11 cubic metres. Last year this limit was set at 9 cubic metres, and the changes

The proposals form part of several measures put in place to try and reduce the impact of the current economic difficulties, the “credit crunch”, for those on lower incomes.

Tell Us What You Think Cartagena Of The Sierra Espuña! Beaches Most

“Q”´s In Spain Cartagena has become the municipality in Spain with the most beaches holding the coveted “Q” for Tourist Quality awards. Cala Cortina, Islas Menores, Playa Honda, Mar de Cristal, Cala del Pino, Playa de Cavanna, Playa del Barco Perdido, Playa del Galúa, Playa de Levante and Playa de la Gola have all received the award. And if you think that makes us very lucky here in the Region of Murcia, well, the second municipality is … Los Alcázares! Los Alcázares also holds six of the Q awards for beaches in the area. Take into account the beaches of Mazarrón and Águilas, and we are lucky enough to have 19 quality certified beaches

The Director General of the Natural Heritage and Biodiversity Department, Pablo Fernández, has issued a challenge to the people of the region of Murcia, asking for their participation in a project to find out “what is working well in the Sierra Espuña, and what we need to improve”. In a recent meeting, it was revealed that the Sierra Espuña is unique in Europe as the only National Park to hold a triple award, Q for Quality, PEFC, and FSC awards. The Director of the

Park, Juan de Dios Cabezas, said the park relied on an annual investment of over a million euros to achieve this. However, next year the area will lose supplementary funding from the Feder and Feader organisations. Other items covered at the meeting were the use of the building “La Marina”, which could be converted into rural accommodation with the aim of increasing tourism in the area, proposals to protect the heritage and history of the park, and the restoration of the “snow houses”.

The meeting was attended by the Councils for Agriculture and Water, Culture and Tourism and Economy, along with the Town Halls from Totana, Alhama de Murcia and Mula, and several organisations such as COAG and varying residents associations. Before the next meeting, which will take place before the end of the year, the aim is to talk to more residents of the area to gather opinions on what further improvements might be made.

across our region. In terms of overall certification, this put us just behind Andalucia and the Communidad Valenciana. The beaches must meet stringent standards for the quality of the water and the cleanliness of the sands, plus offer accessible bathing for disabled bathers, good standards of maintenance for the infrastructures and a high level of services for visitors. Murcia also scores well in terms of the businesses who have also won the award, with more than 100 companies certified with the “Q” quality.

Second Senior’s Golf Tournament Held At Roda Golf

Delays To Cartagena Auditorium Project

The Councillor for Infrastructure in Cartagena, José Vicente Albaladejo, has announced that the work on the Auditorium and the Palacio de Congresos is behind schedule. The project is said to be going well, but there have been some

problems with the concreting at the start of the project. There is no problem with the overall project, but several slight technical modifications have been needed. The adjustments will not increase the project’s cost, and overall the works

should be completed on time, although they are now slightly behind plan. As previously forecast, work should be completed in the last quarter of 2009, and the Auditorium should be fully functional by the summer season of 2010.

The II Senior Golf Tournament in Spain will be held on the 8th Novenber at Roda Golf, with 50 players of different nationalities battling it out against the Spanish contingent in a good natured competition. The competition will be for both Stableford Individual Handicap and teams. To qualify to enter the competition as a Senior, men must be over the age of 55, and ladies over the age of 50. Handicap requirements are 26.4 for men and 34 for ladies. Any interested players can sign up for play until Thursday 6th November, and the cost to enter the competition is 55 euros, which includes the green fees, a comemorative

polo shirt and a meal at the end of play. Anyone qualifying to play for the Spanish team should contact the captain Diego Blesa on 968 173 093, but for all other nationalities players can contact the captains Alex McLennan or Bob Gallard on 966 763 771. There will be trophies for the winners in the following categories: first 3 Individual absolute handicaps for men, first 2 Individual absolute handicap for women, closest to the flag and longest drive (categories for men and women). The winning team will also be awarded the overall trophy, which is their’s to keep for a year.

Why am I drinking bottled water? Like many people I like to look after myself however recently I had began to think about why I am buying all these bottles of water. What benefits are to be gained from bottled water versus 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 our 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 takes up to 40 litres of water to produce. 6. Environmentally, it is having a huge impact on our planet and 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 filtered 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, drinking water!

great

tasting

So armed with all this information I contacted a company called Healthy H2O who are based in Camposol near 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. Do you know what I am really appreciating though? 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!

Fundraiser In Memory Of Carole

Presentation at Henry’s Bar Richard Montana completed an epic kayak trip across the Mar Menor, from Los Alcázares to La Manga and back, raising a total of €1205.65 for the Cancer Support Group (MABS) Murcia/ Mar Menor, in memory of his late partner, Carole. Richard and Carole settled in Los Alcázares to live with their two children, Ellie and Mollie in 2005. Richard had work, the children were settling into their new schools and life was going well for the family, until Carole lost the sight in one eye. After thorough checks, Carole was diagnosed with cancer in part of her brain; she had had breast cancer but had been given the all clear, so this news was a huge shock. “We didn’t speak Spanish and Carole was frightened and wanted to go back to the UK for treatment, but we could only afford flights for Carole and the kids.” said Richard. He needn’t have worried; as soon as the owners

and regulars of the bars in the Avenida Rio Nalon in Los Alcázares heard of their plight, they all rallied round and bought Richard a ticket to the UK. “They were marvellous and I don’t know what we would have done without them” he commented. At that time, there was no cancer support in the Murcia/ Mar Menor area for foreigners who don’t speak Spanish and Richard says that, if there had been, then perhaps Carole would have stayed here for her treatment. Sadly, further tumours were discovered on Carole’s spine and she finally lost her fight against cancer on 14 November 2006, at the age of 40, leaving Richard and her family devastated. Richard has managed to pick up the pieces of his life and made sure that the children are well cared for. “It’s great news that the Cancer Support Group (MABS) now has a branch in the

Murcia/Mar Menor Region and can help other people like Carole, and I wanted to raise as much money as possible in her memory to help them carry on with their good work.” “Without people like Richard and his supporters, MABS wouldn’t be able to carry on with its work in the Murcia area. We are totally funded by the generosity of people like them.” says Lyn Baines, MABS Murcia/ Mar Menor Co-ordinator. “We and Richard would like to thank the following people who made this all possible. Ian, for providing the support boat; Aidrean Bishton, for providing the kayak; Andy Baxter, Stuart Bishton, Raymie, Gemma, Michael, Wolfey and Seamus for manning the support boat; and Conrad, Karen, Carl and all the regulars of Henry’s Bar for helping us to make this happen.” Cancer Support Group (MABS) can be reached on 693 275 779 or www.mabsmurcia.com

First 50 Bikes Available Mazarrón For Cycle Scheme Bahia Lions Club

The Council for Tourism in San Javier has announced that the in December the first 50 bikes are to be made available under the free cycle “hire” scheme. For the first phase of the project, there will be 10 bikes available at each of 5 locations across the municipality. Two of the cycle collection points will be available for ferry users between Santiago de la Ribera and La Manga, who can collect a cycle either at Playa Mistral in La Manga, or the Barnuevo Espalande in Santiago. The other 3 locations will be Roda, in Santiago de la Ribera next to the Faculty

of Sports Science, and in San Javier at the Youth Council. Before using the scheme for the first time, users need to go along to any of the municipal offices in the area and register for the system, giving their personal details. After this, they can use the scheme whenever they want. Implementing the first phase of the scheme has cost around 95,000 euros, which has been met in full by the grant given to the Town Hall by the Agency for Energy Management in Murcia. New investment will see the implementation of phases 2 and 3 of the scheme, in

this case from the Transport Department and the Council for Public Works. These phases will introduce a further 60 bikes into the scheme, plus 6 additional collect and return locations, and should be operational by Semana Santa in 2009. The service will delight users who want to make the most of the areas new cycleways, with 6 km of track already in operation and a further 3 km being constructed from Roda to Los Narejos. Once complete, cyclists will be able to travel all the way from Roda to Santiago de la Ribera in safety.

The 18th October 2008 was a happy day for Señora Isabel Yepes Lopez and her family – especially for her husband, Ramón. Ramón is confined to a wheelchair and the one he had been using had definitely ‘seen better days’. He is a regular customer of the Bar/Restaurante Stalones in Fuente Alamo and it’s proprietor, Tony Mears, who also has a mobility aids business in the UK, decided to do something about it. Tony, his wife Dee, and the other members of

‘Stalones’ staff set about raising the money and the President of the Lions Club of Mazarrón Bahia, Anne Tugwell MBE, was asked to make the presentation on their behalf. Ramón is delighted with his new electric wheelchair, which is very sturdy and, more importantly, really comfortable. He was last seen cruising happily along the road, accompanied by his wife, Isabel, his two daughters, Josefa and Isabel, and two of his six grandchildren.

590,000 Euros

New Underground For Llano de Beal Carpark For Santiago Road Improvements de la Ribera Work to improve the F-43 between km 2.26 and 3.15 including the intersection with the access road to Llano de Beal, is to begin after the local Government declared the “urgent” need to take over parts of the land necessary to carry out the improvements. The project has a budget of

just over 590,000 euros. The F-43 runs from La Unión and the motorway at La Manga, passing through Llano de Beal and El Estrecho in the municipality of Cartagena. The works will allow the improvement of the existing junction, allowing a change of direction at the intersection.

Residents of the Santiago de la Ribera area will be able to express their opinions about the proposals to construct a 200 place underground parking facility in the centre of the town. Plans and proposals for the project are to be made public by the local government, so that residents can “understand the plans and put forward any suggestions or objections” according to the Councillor for Public Works, Pedro Muñoz. Previous meetings held with neighbourhood associations and traders in the area have demonstrated support for the

project, which will see the underground parking facility developed near calle Colón, avoiding the esplanade at Barnuevo. Access would be from Avenida Sandoval and the facility would extend to the area by the Academia General del Aire. Work would include the re-siting of any benches, furniture and lighting affected by the project. Subject to approval of the plans, work would begin next summer, but the first phase of the project has to be the approval of the feasibility study for project, and favourable votes are needed

by the local government team, the opposition and the independent party in the town. The lack of parking in the area has been flagged up as a problem previously, as pedestrianisation of the seafront has led to difficulties parking close to shops in the area, causing traders to believe that they are missing out on business through inaccessibility. Parking at peak times can be almost impossible, especially in the busy summer season with the influx of tourists. Approval of the plans for the additional 200 underground spaces would ease the problem, say supporters.

IBI Falls in San Javier Residents in San Javier will pay a little less IBI tax (Impuesto de Bienes Inmuebles) in 2009, thanks to a reduction in the tax rate imposed by the Council. According to the Councillor for the Department of Hacienda, the majority of residents will pay between 4 and 5% less in 2009 than for their 2008 bills. No-one will pay more in 2009. Whilst the savings may not be huge, with the average

resident saving between 14 and 25 euros on their tax demand, the gesture will no doubt be appreciated by hard pressed tax payers. The bills were set to rise by 10% per year until 2015, and the savings will go some way towards helping in the current economic crisis. In practical terms, a 123 metre square flat in La Manga would pay 527.72 euros in 2009, versus the 546 euros paid in 2008. In Santiago,

a 183 square metre duplex would pay 497.36 euros against 518.76 and a villa of 272 square metres in San Javier would pay 622 euros in 2009 against 647 in 2008. Plans are being discussed to lower the tax rates even further, subject to gaining approval, and in addition reductions of 50% are available to families with more than 5 children, or with 4 children and low income.

Work Begins On N-332 Improvements

The Project to improve the N-332 road link between Mazarrón and Águilas has begun, and the project was recently visited by the Director General of the Highways Department, José Guijarro, accompanied by the Mayor of Mazarrón, Francisco Blaya. The aim of the project is to improve the access to the Murcian coastline, allowing a safe connection to the beaches at Punta de Calnegre, Punta Negra, Bolnuevo, El Castellar, Punta de la Reya and the Port of Mazarrón itself. The work affects the

stretch of road from Mazarrón to Ramonete on the N-332, which runs from Almeria to Valencia and Cartagena to Gata. The project will strengthen the road and make it safer, improving links and journey times between Mazarrón and Águilas. The budget for the project is 388,343 euros, and will include improvements to the roundabout at the end of the RM-3, which runs between Mazarrón and Totana, and the access to the AP-7 toll road. Improvements include strenghtening the road

Mazarrón gets go ahead for cultural centre

surface, the upgrading of signage and the addition of safety barriers at certain points where the risk of vehicles leaving the carriageway is greatest. The project is expected to be completed before the end of 2008. Traffic flow in the area has increased dramatically in the last few years as smaller villages such as Cañade de Gallego have grown in size, and the roads have been subjected to more heavy goods traffic with the increase in agricultural and horticultural development in the zone near Pastrana. The latest estimate puts the number of vehicles at over 1.6 million per year, many of them during the peak summer season, and the project is seen as key to improve safety for these road users. In addition, said the Mayor Señor Blaya, the project would improve the quality of life for those living in the villages of Cañada de Gallego, Los Cazadores and Pastrana, making access to Águilas and Mazarrón faster and safer.

The Town Hall in Mazarrón has had approval from the Regional Government of the Autonomous Community of Murcia to invest 3.6 million euros in the construction of a new Cultural Centre in the town. The funding will be provided by the Council for Culture and Tourism. The new cultural centre will be located in calle Entierro de la Sardina, where a plot of land already exists that belongs to the Consistorio de Mazarrón. The need for the centre reflects the important demographic growth of the Mazarrón area, along with the need for better services in this area to meet the growing demand from residents to increase and improve facilities. The building will be a Cultural Centre housing a public library, auditorium, exhibition room and various

other multi-purpose rooms for holding events. The total cost of the centre will be met by the Culture and Tourism Council, and the 3.6 million euro investment will be split over the next 4 years, from 2008 to 2011. The Centre will help to cement Mazarrón’s reputation as a leisure and tourism destination, following hot on the heels of the restoration of the area around Los Vélez and the creation of the open air auditorium “Marquesa de los Vélez” in the town.

Dual carriageway to Puerto de Mazarrón

The Official Bulletin of the Region of Murcia recently published the invitation to tender for a project to transform the stretch of the N-332 from Mazzarón to Puerto de Mazarrón into a dual carriageway.

The works, which would be financed by the Council for Public Works, have a budget of 167,485 euros. The project is seen as key to improving the traffic flow on what has become a very busy stretch of road linking the two towns, and the influx of summer tourists in the area means that queues can be long and frustrating! The works would include the construction of a cyclepath, which fits with the aim of Mazarrón to promote itself as a “Ciudad Deportiva” in the future. Photo courtesy of Ayuntamiento de Mazarrón

Mobile eco parks have permanent routes in Mazarrón The Council for Cleaning and Refuse Collection in Mazarrón has implemented 9 new routes for the mobile eco park, where residents can safely deposit any rubbish that cannot be collected in the normal containers. Oils, used batteries, fluourescent lights, metal, old clothes, shoes, small domestic appliances, electric cables, toys, leftover paints and medications are just some of the materials accepted by the eco park. The aim is to get all citizens, and especially small businesses generating a lot of waste, to think about using the facility more often. The new routes are being

implemented on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. On Tuesdays, the facility will visit Bolnuevo, El Alamillo, Los Lorentes, Las Balsicas and Cañadas de Romera. Wednesdays it will be the turn of those in the Cañada de Gallego, Camposol and Country Club areas, whilst on Friday the eco park will be in Gañuelas, La Majada, La Atalaya, Leiva and Pastrana. The Council are appealing to all residents to make full use of the facility to dispose of waste, to encourage respect for the environment. The full timetable for the eco park is given below.

Fire Damage To Forests Down

The surface area of forest affected by fire damage in the Region of Murcia has fallen to the lowest level in the last 10 years. In the first 10 months of 2008, there were 139 forest fires, affecting a total land area of 195 hectares of which just under 15 hectares was planted with trees. The average damage caused per fire was 1.41 hectares, 2.5 times less than the national average of 3.55 hectares per fire. However, the number of incidents has increased. In 2007, there were a total of 96 fires in the same time frame. But the good news is that damage to the planted

areas is much less, as in 2007 over 71 hectares of trees were destroyed, versus the 15 hectares for 2008. This is an 80% drop in the amount of planted land damaged by the fires. The encouraging results confirm the effectiveness of the actions taken by the Civil Protection Units and the implementation of the strategies in the Plan Infomur. The amount of land damaged is less, thanks to the quick response times of the teams fighting the fires, and of the 139 incidents, 111 were controlled with damage limited to less than 1 hectare of land.

The most serious fires so far this year were in July in Cartagena, where a blaze destroyed 98 hectares of land in the Tentegorra area, and in La Hoya de Los Vicentes (Jumilla) in March, where a little over 12 hectares of land were damaged. Worryingly, only 4 of the fires were deemed to have started due to natural causes. Out of the remaining fires, 48 were started deliberately, 33 were due to acts of negligence, 19 were as a result of agricultural workers burning off scrub, 3 were as a result of burning rubbish, and 2 were due to cigarette butts which were not properly extinguished.

Less Rescues, More Incidents On The Beaches The Plan for Coastal Vigilance and Rescues resulted in 20,159 interventions this year, against 14,757 in 2007. This is an increase of 27%. However, despite the rising number of interventions, many were of a minor nature,

and the number of actual rescues has fallen to around half of the previous year’s figure. Of the 20,159 incidents, 10,995 were for first aid, 478 were rescues, 8,662 were information and aid for disabled people, 24 were for

Med Cup Regatta boosts economy

The Med Cup Regatta, held in the port of Cartagena between the 25th and 30th August this year, has had a huge and very positive effect on the region’s economy. The Councillor for Culture and Tourism, Pedro Alberto Cruz, said that the total boost to the traders and businesses in the Cartagena area as a result of the event was over 9 million euros. “This is one of the best bits of news in 2008, a year devastated by the economic crisis”, said Señor Cruz. “It shows us the sort of event that the Region of Murcia needs to attract to move forward”. More work is now needed to capitalise on this year’s successful regatta, one of the most popular sailing events at international level. According to the Council for Tourism, Cartagena needs to consolidate the event and increase the actions associated with it to attract more tourists and guarantee further cash injections into the local economy.

The first action by the Tourist Board will be an intensive plan to increase visitor numbers to the area, based on tourist attractions and leisure events such as the regatta. In Spain alone, the event attracted more than 3 million television viewers, and 1.6 million radio listeners. A further survey of 200 locals in Cartagena revealed that 100% believed that the event was a positive way to get the city “on the map” at a national and international level, and that it was essential to get tourists into the region. The regatta started on the 12th May in Alicante, with 21 boats participating. It visited Marsella, Cerdeña, Mallorca and Cartagena before finishing in Portimao, in Portugal. The route consisted of 6 competitions for the class TP52 craft, and was 5 days long. The competition season lasts for 5 months, with various events in the waters of the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.

people with the symptoms of drowning or with cardiac arrest due to other causes. Of these 24 cases, 13 of the drowning victims were sucessfully rescucitated and 4 people died, whilst 6 people with cardiac difficulties were saved and one died.

Hola, Hello, Guten Tag, Bonjour and more! The Regional Employment Service (SEF) has implemented an instant translation service in an astonishing 42 different languages, to meet the needs of the number of foreign residents living in Murcia who are actively seeking work. The move to using the instant translation service should benefit around 8000 people.

The Councillor for Education, Training and Employment

said that the immigrant population was part of the valuable work force of the region, and that language should not be a barrier to the search for employment. The new service uses a telephone system which instantly translates the speech of the job seeker and the clerk, meaning that language really won’t be a barrier when it comes to the service offered by the Employment Department. The most asked for languages in the system are Arabic, French and

Romanian, and these have been made available instantly. Should the job seeker want to converse in another, less common language, they can be attended to in a maximum of 2 hours. The 42 languages include. English, Norwegian, Dutch, French, Hungarian, Greek, Cantonese, Japanese, Turkish, Slovakian, SerboCroat, Urdu, Danish and Polish, amongst a wonderful array of even more obscure tongues! So far, the service is said to be working very well, and

results are good. Job seekers are also happy with the system. And as for the guy in the employment office? He’s just relieved that he doesn’t have to learn 42 different languages!

‘WELCOME’ romp home for Linda

Linda Bell was a much loved and respected member of the Camposol community and an active participant in Welcome Group events so it was no surprise that when she sadly lost her brave battle against caner earlier this year her friends at the Welcome Group decided to hold an event in her memory.

Wednesday 15th October saw a very lively and enjoyable Race Night held at the Saladillo Vista on Camposol sector ‘A’. More than 90 people attended the event which raised a very respectable €415, this was boosted by a donation of €100 from the Book Club and further boosted by the Welcome Group who made the grand total up to €1000. The money raised was donated to MABS Mazarrón. Malcolm, Linda’s husband, is seen here with some of the MABS volunteers who attended the event. MABS Mazarrón offer confidential help and support to local people who have been diagnosed with or are being treated for cancer. They provide a wide range of services which are free of charge. If you or someone you know would like some helpful, confidential support contact our Help Line 620 422 410.

Looking after the beaches Improvements include cleaning and care of the beaches on a year round basis, not just for the summer season, are planned for the Cartagena area. Staff to be kept on through the winter season would include lifeguards, and the possibility of having a mobile team who monitor the beaches according to where most bathers congregate, is being studied. In recent times, investments have been made in the training of the lifeguards and staff, the opening of six bathing access points for disabled swimmers, improvements to the access to the natural park at Calblanque, the application for

6 Blue Flags and the refurbishing of the network of footpaths spanning the area. This included the creation of a 7.5 km pathway from La Manga to Cabo de Palos, from the Hotel Entremares to the esplanade at El Faro. A total of 73 staff worked this summer in the 3 centres for Coastal Services. There were 46 staff in La Manga, 16 in Los Nietos and 11 in the Isla Plana and La Azohía area. During the summer season, 60 people were involved in the cleaning and care of the beaches, 40 in La Manga, 12 in Los Nietos and 8 in Isla Plana

PALS Beach Barbecue at Bolnuevo

The committee members, who were watching the F1 Japanese Grand Prix in the early hours and looking out the window at the rain, must have been worried. Eight hours later, although the sun was behind the clouds, it was dry and warm on Bolnuevo beach. One hundred and fifteen people came down to the beach

with their tables and chairs (no need for umbrellas) and set up camp for PALS (Protection and LifeSaving) famous BBQ. This year the Annual Petanque Competition was run along side the BBQ. Fifty men and women entered the event. After five rounds, the final of the women’s competition was between

Frances Crosby and Kathy Dempsey. The men’s final was between Willie Crosby (keep it in the family) and Walter Little. Kathy and Willie won and played off in the Grand Final. The Referee was Robert Stent who also picked up the wooden spoon prize for losing in the first round. Willie (if you pardon the expression) came out on top winning 9-3. The Petanque Competition was organized by Brain and Gina Shakespeare. Meanwhile, Ken, Dennis, Joe and Sandy were cooking (great herby tasting chicken) and Marion and Maureen were serving drinks (both free) and the raffle raised 500€. The final accounts are being prepared but it is expected that 1800-2000€ will have been taken. PALS, also, announce that the two defibrillators (3,092.30€) for Camposol are on their way and should be in place by the end of the month.

Editorial

The Philosophy of ASSSA Insurance Though ASSSA Insurance is well known outside The Region of Murcia, some readers of The Reporter probably still wonder, who is that company? Is that a new company? Are they financially sound? Can I be sure that I am covered,

if I take out insurance with them? ASSSA Insurance is a prestigious and financially sound company, dating back to 1935. The company was started by a group of doctors in Madrid,

establishing health cover for families, who did not have any other means of access to health services. Those were the days before National Health Service. With the influx of foreigners to the Costa Blanca in the

early 90s, ASSSA Insurance decided to develop products specifically aimed at this new market. Very soon, the company was a leader within this its field, and the head office was moved to the financial centre of Alicante. With the increased market share in Costa B l a n c a , A S S S A Insurance decided to expand into The Region of Murcia. October 2006, the office in Puerto de Mazarrón opened. From there new and current clients in the entire region are serviced by means of an increasing n u m b e r s of “service p o i n t s ” , strategically spread within the Region of Murcia – from North to

South, and from East to West. The “Corner Stones” of ASSSA Insurance’s business philosophy were – and still are – personal service in the client’s own language, transparency, and truthful information to the clients. ASSSA’s branch offices are manned by multilingual staff. Their in-depth knowledge of the products ensures that the clients have access to complete information about the different covers. ASSSA’s employees are there to give sound advice, enabling the clients to make a qualified choice between the different possibilities, and choose the right insurance level to meet their specific needs. So do not hesitate. For further information, also if you just want no-obligation information about private health insurance, dental insurance, accident insurance, or funeral insurance, please call 968 153 396 or 699 612 687 – we will always be there for you!

San Javier Celebrates 25 Years Of Independence

The Mayoress of San Javier, Pepa García, has collected the Al-Kazar award, given by the Town Hall in Los Alcázares to the municipalities of San Javier and Torre Pacheco in recognition of the strong links between the towns. The award is given to the

Town Hall each year, but this year the presentation was a very special occasion, as San Javier is celebrating 25 years of independence. The Mayoress said she was delighted to accept the award on behalf of the people of San Javier, as it signifies the harmony and good

relationship between the towns and their residents. The road to independence between the municipalities was long, and the journey sometimes troubled, with the battle for recognition and individual rights beginning around the time of the Spanish Civil War. Initially, the proposals faced heavy opposition, however in 1983 the towns became independent municipalities. “San Javier was like a father to Los Alcázares” said the Mayoress, “and like any good father it resisted its children’s attempts at independence, and like a good father is now very proud to celebrate 25 years of independence”. The key to success for the area as a whole is seen as good working relationships, shared interests and the growth of the local economy. The municipalities will continue to work together to endure a bright future for residents.

Always A Friendly Welcome At Los Amigos

Situated at the heart of the tranquil village of Tallante on the N332 Cartagena to Mazarron road, you will find Restaurante Los Amigos, a small restaurant with a charm of its own. Recently redecorated to reflect a Moorish setting, creating a warm and relaxing ambience, it still retains many of its original features such as the beamed ceilings and shuttered windows, which helps maintain its rural village charm. This, together with their no-smoking policy offers a clean and relaxed atmosphere so you can enjoy your food. (There is a large smoking area – outside). To enhance the new ambience and in keeping with the Moorish theme their new menu is a refreshing change. Having been down the traditional ‘English’ path, owner and chef, Drew Ryder has completely changed the menu and possibly the way we dine out. The dishes, offer a worldwide selection, and will be reviewed on a monthly basis. All dishes can be taken as part of a mezzes, (a selection of dishes enabling you to taste various delights, and is a very Middle Eastern way of eating), as a starter or main course. The mezzes option is already proving to be very popular and customers having tried different dishes then come back and go down the traditional starter/main course route. With a large selection to choose from and some mouth watering home-made desserts there is something for everyone. (Dishes start from 3 euros). Says Drew, “Over the years, we have found that, when looking at our menu, customers have wanted to try more than one dish. They have usually ordered one, and then spent some time trying to coax their partner into having the other dish of their choice! Sometimes they were successful, sometimes not! This is one

of the reasons for changing the way you can select from our menu. Another reason is that it became apparent when we did our Culinary Cruise last year, that people want something different, they want to try different tastes. Now they can!” All the dishes on offer are cooked on the premises and are made using locally produced foods ensuring freshness. This month’s menu includes dishes from Morocco, with Chermoulah the most popular, (containing potatoes, courgettes, tomatoes, peas and broad beans all delicately wrapped in Moroccan spices); from South Africa, (Bobotie and Chakalaka), India (Chicken Rogan Josh) and Lebanon (Baba Ganoush) to name a few. With a good selection of meat and fish, vegetarians have not been left out. Any vegetarian dish can be adapted for the carnivores amongst us with the addition of chicken, fish or pork. An option is available for the more traditional diners or the less adventurous and Drew has maintained his fillet steaks on the menu - which just melt in your mouth! Drew will also cater for any special dietary requirements – just tell him what they are at the time of booking. Sunday lunch still remains a traditional favourite and is so popular that turning up in the hope of getting a table will be like waiting for snow to fall in this area of Spain! It is important to book with many people making regular bookings in advance to be sure of a table! Private parties and functions can also be catered for with exclusive use of all facilities if required. Outside catering is also available for those of you wishing to entertain at home, but want something different. To find out more, or to reserve a table telephone 968 163 640

The webpage for the public transport system “Unibono” has received over 5000 hits in just over a week, since the new project to increase the simplification of the tarrifs on the public transport system in Murcia moved a step forward. Most of the hits are to apply for the new card, which can be used from this week. The first phase of the project to have integrated tariffs in the area is being implemented by the Council for Public Works, in collaboration with the Town Hall in Murcia. It will allow travellers to buy a 20 euro monthly ticket, which will allow the holder to make as many journeys as they want. The beneficiaries in the first phase will be the students at the University in the city, who can travel between the different campuses as often as they need. To apply for the card, a form needs to be completed on the

webpage www.unibono.es, which can then be taken along to the place where the card is issued, such as the office of the ETP ( Public Transport), the bus station in Avenida de la Libertad, Murcia, or in the information services department of the University. The pass is for individual use, and is not transferrable to another person. It allows unlimited journeys on all the public transport routes, both urban and interurban, in the municipality of Murcia. The pass can be used both for travel to the University and for leisure activities, 7 days a week, and is valid for one year. The main objective of this, and similar schemes, is to increase the use of public transport to save energy and decrease congestion in the region’s cities.

Almansa Park grows by 3000 metres The Almansa Park in San Javier will be gaining 3000 metres of garden area, with the opening to the public of an area previously used as storage space by the Town Hall. The area was previously used for storing old materials, and is located between the calle Garroferos and the parking for the auditorium. The works will cost 374,937 euros, and are to be financed by an agreement between the Town Hall, who will contribute 174,937 euros, and the Council for Public Works, Homes and Transport who will meet the remaining 200,000 euros of the bill. The

works should take around 5 months to complete, and will be finished early in 2009. The design of the new garden area will include shaded areas, seating and bins. A new pergola will separate the garden area from the current parking area, and will also allow the existing children’s play park to be extended by 300 metres. The garden will be planted with native species such as palms, olive trees and cypresses. The project is seen as important by the Council as it opens up a new area of park previously closed to the public.

DVD Review. Iron Man Though fans of the Marvel comics universe from which he springs would no doubt disagree, the character of Iron Man has long been one of the lesser-known of the top-tier superheroes. After all, his Marvel stablemates Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk and the X-Men – even Daredevil – were all fairly well-known outside the circle of comic book geeks even before they made it to recent big budget big screen outings. Compared to the DC heroes Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, Iron Man has always seemed very much like a second-stringer in terms of fame. Little wonder, really, because while all those other characters had something fairly original going for them, the character of Iron Man was – for legal reasons it’s best to phrase it like this – inspired heavily by that of Batman. After all, neither of these superheroes actually has any special powers – unlike Superman’s flight or SpiderMan’s ability to climb walls, both Batman and Iron Man are just ordinary men with an uncanny intelligence and some fancy gadgets. They both also share a secret identity – Bruce Wayne in the case of Batman and Tony Stark in that of Iron Man – who happens to be a billionaire businessman with all the resources to fund the kind of high-priced inventions that are vital in their daily crime fighting activities. In the case of Batman there’s the Batmobile, utility belt and the like; with Iron Man it’s, well, a funky robotic suit of armour. Yep – a robotic suit of armour. That can fly. And fire

Releases 27 October missiles. To the minds of countless teenage boys, that’s got to count as one of the coolest things ever – even if said armour is inexplicably painted a rather girly red and yellow, something which in this film version actually seems to work for pretty much the first time ever. Because the production designers and special effects wizards here have done themselves more than proud, creating a lush, highly believable-looking world and main character that should on looks alone secure Iron Man a place up there with the best-loved superhero movies of the last few decades. But, let’s face it, though flying robots and impressive computer-generated action sequences may be fun and everything, the superhero movies that have had the most success so far have always been those with interesting characters played by good actors. From Michael Keaton’s Batman through to Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, the most iconic screen outings for comic book heroes have been those where the two-dimensional characters are made three-dimensional people on screen, packed with convincing character flaws and genuine human frailties. As such, the choice of Robert Downey Jr to take the part of Tony Stark was inspired. Yes, he’s an actor who’s been in the press for all the wrong reasons far too often, but when he’s good he’s undoubtedly one of the finest, most likeable actors working today – and of a calibre not often seen taking leads in this kind of film. This dual personality is perfect for playing a character who not only maintains

Robert Downey Jr stars as super hero Iron Man. Photo credit. Zade Rosenthal two identities, but is also wracked with deep guilt about the fickle lifestyle he led before a near-fatal accident led to his becoming a superhero. Yes, it’s standard superhero origin-story, franchise-starting stuff – but with Downey on top form, ably directed by a rapidly improving John Favreau (though Gwyneth Paltrow in support is a bit hit and miss), Stark instead becomes one of those rare comic book heroes where you’re more interested in what’s going on in their head than in who it is they’re going to beat up next. (This must have been what Ang Lee was trying to do with his lacklustre Hulk film.) Combined with some inventive and stylish action, this is a sure-fire winner. Roll on Iron Man 2!

Cancer Support Group MABS Mazarrón The MABS Mazarrón Cancer Support Group was delighted to receive a total of €2,600 recently from three local organisations. Mazarrón Bowls Club held a charity match on 21st September at their home ground, Hacienda de Alamo. The tournament raised €300 which was donated to MABS to help towards the services they provide within the local area. The competition was won by Colin Sear who is seen here with some of the MABS volunteers. A group of local gentlemen who call themselves ‘The

Pudding Club’ whose aim is to find the best steak and kidney pudding in the area kindly donated €300 from their annual draw. Finally, The Hair and Beauty Academy donated a fantastic €2000. The Academy donated the proceeds from their launch days when all treatments were offered for a donation to MABS. In addition to the treatments a number of very brave volunteers took part in a charity hair removal exercise these were notably: Eunice and Shaun who very bravely had their heads shaved and Steve

Colin Sear & MABS volunteers

‘The Pudding Club’

The Hair and Beauty Academy

T and Alan who had their legs waxed, well done to all of you. MABS Mazarrón would like to say a huge ‘THANK YOU’ to you all for your generous donations. All of the donated money will remain in the Mazarrón

area to provide help and support to local cancer suffers and their families. We would like to send our sincere condolences to Tony Cook who sadly lost his beloved wife Eileen recently. Donations in memory of Eileen were

given to MABS, thank you. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with or are being treated for cancer and you would like some helpful, confidential advice contact our Help Line on 620 422 410.

What's On where

Exhibitions Fossils On Display & Fairs Fancy making an exhibit of yourself this autumn? Well, how about visiting one of the many popular exhibitions being showcased in the Region of Murcia over the coming months.

“100% Natural” is the intruiging title of the exhibition running in the Sala de Exposiciones in Jumilla until the 14th November. Photographer José Benito Ruiz has over 100 stunning photographs of the natural beauty of the world. Born in Alicante and winner of many awards and accolades, his images have been shown in more than 30 countries across the world. The photos depict images of natural beauty and wildlife in action, and reflect Ruiz’s fascination with the beauty and power of nature. The exhibition is open from Monday to Friday between 5pm and 8pm. If you have a special interest in the history of the Murcia region, a visit to the exhibition at the Palacio Molina in Cartagena is well worth a visit. Called “20 Años de Fotoperiodismo en el Diario La Opinión”, the show features photographs taken in the last 20 years from the newspaper “La Opinión de Murcia”. Organised by the Historical Photographic Society of Murcia, the display will feature images of Murcian society, culture and scenery over the last 20 years, offering an unique photo document of this period. There will be 81 photos by 23 different photographers, spanning from 1988 to 2008. Entrance is from 10.30am until 1.30pm and 5pm until 8.30pm on Tuesdays to Saturdays only. The display is closed on Mondays, Sundays and festivals. More photographs are on the agenda at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, organised by BBC Wildlife Magazine and The Nautral History Museum in the UK. This show features copies of the works submitted in the 2007 competition by the best wildlife photographers in the world. You can visit the exhibition until 28th November at the Centro Cultural Cajamurcia in Cartagena. Fancy tasting a little bit of typical Murcian produce? Why not visit the II Dia del Comercio, held by the local traders and businesses in the market town of Totana? On Sunday 26th October, the auditorium in the park there will be taken over by the town’s traders with displays of local produce, stalls and tastings. Kicking off at 12 noon, and continuing throughout the afternoon, the fair will also feature clothing, accessories and other articles on display as sold by the most popular stores in the town.

“Secrets Hidden By The Rocks” is the name of a new display of fossils which will be on show in the region in the Exhibition Room of the Archeological Museum in Murcia until the 4th January 2009. The show, which opened last week, gives an insight into the heritage of the area, and is described as a selection of spectacular fossils, hidden gems discovered in the rocks. It is an important piece of history, and lends weight to the idea of a future Museum of Paleontology in the area of Cabezo Gordo in Torre Pacheco. The display will educate and inform visitors on such topics as the history of the area, the investigation of the sites, archeological digs, the restoration and dating of the fossils and much more, and there will be around 20 information panels explaining the evolution of life in the Murcia area, a fascinating trip through 200 million years of time! The fossils can help us to understand the creatures of yesteryear and the challenges that they had to face, from natural disasters to extinction. In total, 85 pieces are on display, including the dinosaur bone thought to be 80 million years old and found in Yecla, and evidence found in Caravaca to support the theory of the extinction of the dinosaurs. Important dig sites in this region include the cave Victoria in Cartagena, and the Sima de las Palomas in Torre Pacheco. A series of conferences (in Spanish) to support the exhibition will take place between the 21st October and the 10th December, dealing with different aspects of paleontology and archeology. These will be held in the Museum at 8pm and entrance will be free until all seating is taken.

Step Back In Time In Torre Pacheco If you’d like to get a feel for what it must have been like to live in the region many years ago, then a new exhibition in the Exhibition Room of the Public Library in Torre Pacheco will answer your questions. Called “Los Millares, una civilización milenaria”, the exhibition is split into three parts, dealing with village life, the copper mining process of the area’s inhabitants and the burial process. Located in Santa Fe de Mondújar, Almeria, the archeological site at Los Millares is considered to be one of the most important sites of the Copper Age in Europe. The inhabitants of the area from 2500 to 1700 AC developed a wonderful agricultural system and were pioneering in the use of materials, especially copper. This exhibition, organised by La Caixa in collaboration with the Town Hall in Torre Pacheco, aims to demonstrate what life was like in the year 2000 AC. Featuring reconstructions, reproductions of artefacts and offering detailed information into the megalithic area, the display is not to be missed. The exhibition opened on the 15th October, and will be open until the 8th November from Mondays to Fridays from 5pm until 9pm and on Saturdays from 10am until 2pm.

Speedboat Racing Championship In Santiago The Spanish Speedboat Championship is to be held on the 27th and 28th October on the Playa del Colón in Santiago de la Ribera. The competition will feature both Circuit and Off-Shore contests. On Saturday 25th October, the circuit competition will take place, with practice sessions at 11.15am and the races starting at 12.45pm. There will be trophies for the first 3 competitiors in each category for Ski Junior, Ski F1, Ski F2, Runabout F1 and Runabout F2. On Sunday the Off-Shore competition will begin, with the tests starting at 10.30am and finishing at 3.30pm. Again, there will be trophies for the first 3 competitors in each class for F1, F2 and Promoción classes.

Books!

And for a fair of a different sort, take a trip to the Calle del Carmen in Cartagena this weekend to catch the tail end of the book fair running in the city. This is the 27th book fair in Cartagena, and the area around the calle del Carmen, and the plazas nearby, will host more than 40 stalls from bookshops and publishers.

Land of Fire and Ice By Dawn Llewellyn-Price

The Blue Lagoon Our annual expedition to Spain this year had been postponed by a couple of months for two reasons. Rolling off the ‘Pride of Bilbao’ ferry in 2007, car sporting a metaphorical HGV sticker, and sliding down south on wet roads, we arrived in the Murcia region to grey skies, and slippery terraces whilst answering calls from home on how wonderful the weather was in Swansea. Harder to swallow than octopus sin salsa. ‘I’m not coming this early next year!’ had been my repetitive strain for April. But there had been a more ominous reason, a health condition not normally covered by the European Health Card, one which had been creeping up on me for months. I was sharing this affliction with Madonna, Sharon Stone, Andie McDowell, and even Michael Jackson. Being in such lauded company wasn’t going to make it any easier to treat, although not normally deemed fatal, I was feeling dubious in my case. I was having that birthday, the big one involving a zero. And we’re not talking the ‘life begins at’ zero. It had moved on a stage further. ‘Oh no, not me!’ I wailed. There must obviously be an error somewhere in my calculations; - I had never been good at maths. I juggled the figures, did a Zimbabwean recount, and finally despaired. Visualise Munch’s oft stolen painting ‘The Scream’. It was me. Maybe I had to face the obvious-was it time to hang up the hair extensions, file down the trademark talons, cut my hair short and wear beige? To finally cast Mac Red lipstick into the bin of youth, and hit the Elizabeth Arden counter? Adios! MTV Dance. Hola! VHI classics? I contemplated these new options for a full minute before running to the Doc’s for a bucket of HRT closely followed by trips to ‘New Look’ and ‘TKMaxx’ for the annual pre-exodus summer spend on fashion for the under thirties. Acceptance was only the first stage of this condition. The next and most vital stage was ‘The Celebration’. No chance of that. ‘Marking the occasion’ was the closest I could manage. This involved a somewhat surly, last minute email to some friends to join us for a Chinese at Swansea Marina, wearing ‘posh frocks’ with maybe a trip to the new casino if we could stay awake past 11pm, and spare a fiver for gambling. Naturally we didn’t manage the latter as it was a Monday night, some people work for a living, and most were yawning by 10pm, having already reached that particular zero, some by- passing it totally and heading straight for a Century, not out. However, there was one partially predicted surprise. Hubby Jeff Wade had organised a trip. Just like he’d done for the ‘Life Begins at’ zero, where I had found myself bound Club Class (I was worth it in those days) for New York, only discovering the destination at the airport. He was obviously having second thoughts on this occasion. ‘I think I’d better tell you where we’re going’ he announced three days before the mystery trip. ‘If you haven’t got the right clothes it’ll ruin it!’ Knowing my penchant for handbags, shoes and kilos of cosmetics, he legged it upstairs, returning with a very thin guidebook, entitled ‘Iceland’. ‘Population; 300,000.’ ‘Most sparsely- populated country in Europe.’ (And most talked about in recent weeks!) Vague ideas of a nice little cruise, wafting about in maxi dresses with a cocktail in one hand were promptly forgotten. I envisioned hauling out fleeces and thick tights, and a magnifying glass to seek out any ‘Fun’. It was May 11th, twenty-four hours before B-Day, and a few balmy days in Wales had seen flip flops and cut-offs magically appear from shopping bags, while the winter stuff had been hurriedly packed away. Out it came again, pronto. I had always wanted to go to Reykjavik, see those little Icelandic ponies, and discover what else the newest (as in latest to emerge from beneath the ocean) country had to offer. However, our scuba diving days had dragged us off to the hotter locations of the world, and Iceland slowly became a distant memory, packed to the back of my mind along with the horse-riding gear from a past decade. So it was a very special, thoughtful surprise. However, husbands are a separate species from wives, and despite having hidden the book for eight months, he’d not really looked at it. On turning to the back section under ‘What to pack’, panic set in. Wet weather gear and hiking boots essential, even on a coach trip. Iceland is extremely wet at all times of the year.

Gulfoss Waterfall

Well done, husband, for not spotting that bit, resulting in a rushed Sunday afternoon trip to Millets, and the thought of trying to break in new boots within three days. Mine, naturally, were reposing in an Ikea box at the back of a wardrobe in our villa near Mazarron, awaiting those promised and never executed treks in the Sierra Espuña National Park. So we hit the shops, bought waterproof leggings to cover our trousers, new boots, and silently thanked Lidl in Puerto de Mazarrón for the hideous orange capes bought cheaply the year before, - just in case we had a breakdown on a Spanish motorway, in the rain. The birthday ‘Celebration’ passed with delusional acceptance, chanting silently ‘I am still as good as Madonna!’ So, with bags packed full to allowance, we headed for Heathrow in rare, beautiful sunshine, sneezing our way up the M4 as huge, flowering trees flung pollen at us from the verges like festoons of party poppers and silly string. We flew Icelandair to Keflavik airport, and the seat-back DVD screens oozed information on what was available, most things involving water, snow or getting wet. The three hour flight was great for the four-day break,- with Icelandic prices being the highest in the world, probably long enough without flogging an internal organ. ‘If we’d been in Spain we could have gone from Alicante, it’s only five hours!’ I was informed, smugly. With ‘booze’ costing three times as much as the UK, (no lager louts in Iceland) we stocked up on landing at the great duty free shop, tipped off by the guide book, buying a few bottles of our favoured Spanish Campo Viejo for not unreasonable amounts, whilst being informed it was perfectly acceptable, and indeed, expected for you to imbibe fully in your hotel room prior to an evening out. Our room at the Saga Radisson, a large hotel with a rooftop restaurant with fantastic panoramic views of the city, came with a cupboard full of all types of drinking glasses. We could have held a party if we’d known anyone, but the two Welshmen we met on the airport bus had gone off snowmobiling somewhere on a cold glacier. Sitting there at midnight watching the still-dusk city with its twinkling lights and motorbikes speeding past, we knew three hours of darkness would descend any moment, and then it would be light again at 3am. During our stay the Reykjavik arts festival was about to commence, and a small blue and red house had been part-submerged in the lake. ‘Atlantis’ cheered up the surroundings and I hope they leave it there. It added colour to an otherwise grey-sky panorama, - we also suffered rain, drizzle, and cloud, which is quite normal for Iceland. Shame, really, as

Whale Watching

the photos would have looked so much better against a blue backdrop. Jeff was convinced they used photo-shop for the brochures, but of course, Icelanders admitted to many sunny days. Naturally, the day before our arrival was absolutely ‘beautiful’. The city itself was small, but lively, with some very colourful houses and architecture. One evening a cavalcade of American and classic cars drove around the centre square. However, the sheer expense of eating out and socialising was prohibitive (average £20 for a main course, £9 pounds for a glass of wine, £25 for a bottle) and meant sitting about supping for hours on end after a meal would have been painfully expensive –it was back to the room for a duty free tipple and some smoked salmon blinis and Skyr-(curdled milk yoghurt) for desert, courteously of the local 24 hour shop. We decided to go whale watching, with a company called Elding, - a must surely? It was only a ten minute bus trip from the hotel, by double-decker, but as the bus was covered in whale-artwork, we couldn’t see a great deal through windows so we didn’t get much of a free sightseeing tour. Icelanders are now hunting whales once again, and it was on the menu in city restaurants, so it was no surprise that we didn’t see any. What should have been a great day out, produced only puffins in the distance, too many Americans on-deck, and the only magnificent creature appearing from the depths was a rather good looking guy coming up the stairs from ‘down below’ where coffees and snacks were available and seats out of the wind awaited. Everyone unlucky enough not to see any whales was offered a free trip the next day. Not much chance of taking them up on their offer- Icelandic waters are famous for their lousy conditions and we suffered them aplenty that day. With lots of trips available from the local bus company, Reykjavik Excursions, we were hard-pressed to fit it all in, but booked ourselves onto the Golden Circle tour - the highlight of our few days, calling at a greenhouse heated by geo-thermal energy (they grow tomatoes and bananas in Iceland, though not enough to supply Mercadonna), Kerio,

The Crater

a volcanic crater filled with blue water, the stunning Gullfoss waterfall where we hiked precipitously to the top, near enough to fling ourselves in, - health and safety in Iceland is similar to Spain, hooray! In between stops we saw plenty of Icelandic ponies, a dearth of spectacular scenery, with steaming vents, snow capped mountains and the mangled remains of cars, placed on plinths as a warning to drivers-Iceland’s roads are dangerous, they move from asphalt onto gravel, and crash barriers only seem to appear near the city outskirts. At Geysir, we saw the geysers, - where a bit of rope separated us from spurts of boiling water (even less elf’ n safety) and everyone watching whooped with delight as we all stood perilously close beneath the spray, and where the kiosk/restaurant/gift shop separated us speedily from our cash. The multi-media centre with its strange holographic face, and screens of spurting geysers/lava from volcanic eruptions fascinated us, but we narrowly missed injury as the exit (we thought it was part of the audio-visual experience) was via a staircase in almost total darkness. I’m sure they’ve illuminated it by now, as we complained heartily after banging toes repeatedly and trying to flounder our way out, arms outstretched with groping hands. I can now say I have journeyed to the centre of the Earth - or wandered aimlessly between the tectonic plates in the rift valley and national park at Pingvellir, - the American and European plates separating at a rate of a few centimetres a year. At the end of the walk we saw yet another magnificent waterfall and a crystal clear pool, where eighteen women met their forcible deaths on charges varying from incest to adultery. Not in one session, naturally, - it was aptly named the Drowning Pool, with beheading the punishment reserved for men. Fascinating as it was to try and visualise these horrific events in the crystal water, the high spot for me must surely have been another aquatic destination, - the Blue Lagoon. Near Keflavik airport, it couldn’t be missed. In fact visitors can book to go immediately on arrival/prior to departure and spend a few hours basking in the steamy blue health giving waters. After running through the cold air leaping into hot, hot water while slapping silica mud on your face, or having a massage in the open air, was a pure delight. The whole place is set up around a geo-thermal power station, and this curious mix of lava rocks, bright blue water and spewing industrial buildings blends well with the gift shop, lava restaurant, and viewing platforms. It was the only blue we saw during our trip. But, it was good enough for Danish royalty, stars from Desperate Housewives, Al Gore, Martha Stewart and Placido Domingo, so it was good enough for me. Maybe that’s the reason Bjork is so pale? My skin was positively glowing, and the photo taken afterwards was declared the official ‘Big Birthday’ photo. Hubby, however, looked quite spotty and wind-burned on the return flight next day. Oddly enough, the Welsh football team were playing Iceland a week after we left, and the team were actually sat ‘taking the waters’ of the Blue Lagoon when the country suffered its latest earthquake, luckily with only a few fatalities. The museum opposite our hotel, and the half hour sat at the computers were worth the effort to discover Iceland’s history, and a great rest for our worn-out feet. A major event called The Haze Famine began there, spreading as far as Britain. We’d never heard of it, but it killed the equivalent of 60,000 people by today’s numbers. Leaving a rather large cloud. I think it must still be there, because we caught only a glimpse of blue sky as we headed back to the airport for home. Nothing left to do then except work out our Icelandic names, where the woman takes her father’s first name and adds the Icelandic equivalent of ‘daughter’ and the man adds ‘son of’ to his father’s first name. Until the next visit, Dawn Thomasdottir and Jeffrey Peterson checked in at a very busy, very modern Keflavik airport, and looked forward to ‘Blue Skies over Bilbao’…a decade older, but none the wiser.

The Music Scene If waiting at home for the “trick or treaters” seems a bit tame this Hallowe’en, then you could always go out instead! There are plenty of events happening around the region, and several are timed to take place on All Hallows Eve itself. The town of Alhama de Murcia is hosting a music festival for Friday 31st, “El Dia de Los Muertos” as it is called here in Spain, and if you’d rather rock the night away get down to the Auditorio Municipal at 8pm for the Festival. The acts on the bill include Benito Kamelas, Dr. Sapo, Contranatura, Ceda El Vaso and Courtney Dreams. Tickets cost 10 euros in advance and can be bought from Discos Trafficos and Discos Comix in Murcia, Pub Zeppelin and the Tourist Board Office in Alhama, and the Fraggle Rock pub in Totana. Tickets also available on the door for 12 euros. If you fancy a little taste of café society, with free music thrown in, then head along to the Bar Ítaca in Murcia on Wednesday 29th October, where David Moya and Jass will be performing. Entrance to the event is free, and you can find out more about the two artists on www.proyectojass. com. Also playing in the region on Thursday 30th October in the Auditorio y Centro de Congresso Victor Villegas in Murcia is the German Symphony orchestra from Berlin. Conducted by French Musical Director George Prêtre, who has over the years conducted the works of Brahms, Beethoven and Mahler, the programme includes Brahms Symphony no.3 and “Cuadros para un exposición” (MP Mussorgsky and M Ravel). At 83 years of age, and with a style likened to “a volcano on the verge of erupting”, this is a concert not to be missed by lovers of classical music. In concert on Saturday 1st of November is the legendary Al Green, performing his “Lay It Down” show. The event is to be held at the Auditorio y Centre de Congresso Victor Villegas in Murcia city, in the Narciso Yepes room. Tickets cost 38 euros and are available from several outlets in the Murcia area, including the Havana Café in Murcia, Discos Traficos in Murcia, Carrefour in Murcia, Zowies Discos in Cartagena, FNAC in the Nueva Condomina Centre and Discos Alcaraz in San Javier. You can also buy tickets online via www. ticktackticket.com and have them delivered direct to your home. Please note that children under the age of 6 are not permitted at this concert. The Salón de Actos in the Casa de Cultura in Pilar de Horadada is to host a violin recital on Sunday 26th October by the acclaimed musician Serguei Popoy. The violinist will perform a recital of Hebrew music, starting at 7pm. Entrance is free, and the performance will be opened by the musical duo Ximo and Judy. The concert has been organised by the Evangelist Church of Pilar de la Horadada. Finally, the Archeological Museum in Murcia are staging a series of concerts as part of the “Festival of Autumn” and kick off on Thursday 30th October with the duo Hommage – Greco who will play a selection of the works of Beethoven and C. Franck on violin and piano. The second concert on 6th November will feature the Gubbio Festival Ensemble, with works by Rossini, Hummel and Boccherini. The concerts will run every Thursday

at the Museum from the 30th October until the 4th December. Entrance is free, and places are limited. And looking ahead to November, the Cartagena Jazz Festival, now in its 28th swinging year, will be the place to go for all lovers of jazz and modern music. The festival kicks off on the 7th November with a concert by Mathew Herbert and Danilo Pérez. Mathew Herbert is a young British artist, who has been said to hold the future of electronic music in his hands! Quite an accolade! Opening the festival, however, he will show another side to his character, as he performs with the Mathew Herbert Big Band. The evening closes with a concert by Panamanian performer Danilo Pérez, who in a little over a decade has taken the jazz world by storm with his blend of Panamanian – American jazz. In the past he has played alongside some of the jazz greats such as Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Hadon, but since 1990 has been playing with his own band. Many of his records are considered the finest examples of the genre, and he plays at the festival with his trio, accompanied by veteran saxophonist Lee Konitz. Events take a gentler turn on Saturday 8th of November, when the singers from Take 6 are on stage. It has been said that they sound like angels, with their particular brand of gospel and a capella singing, and they are considered one of the best vocal groups in the world. After more than 20 years in the business, their unique sound, based on the gospel of America’s Deep South, has won them 10 Grammy’s, amongst other prizes. With a strong R&B and jazz influence, they have previously performed with such musical greats as Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Queen Latifah and Quincy Jones. Also performing on the 8th November will be Mike Stern, with his unique blend of jazz-rock. Not only a master of the guitar, he has shown a depth and maturity with his songwriting that has brought him to the forefront of the jazz scene. One of the most important and influential guitarists of his generation, he will be playing alongside American trumpeter

Hurry along to the following events in Murcia, as some take place this weekend! Rock giants Queen are playing at the Nuevo Condomina stadium just outside Murcia on 24th October, at the former football ground. Fronted by Paul Rodgers, and with drummer Roger Taylor and guitarist Brian May, the band will also play dates in Madrid and Barcelona. Charismatic lead singer Freddie Mercury died in 1991, and the band went on to release an album after 4 years of work, “Made in Heaven”, in 1995. In 1997 bassist John Deacon announced his retirement, but Roger Taylor and Brian May went on to form “Queen + Paul Rodgers” and continue to play.

Through the years with Blue Peter

It was on 16 October 1958 that a new children’s TV programme first appeared in a 15-minute slot on the BBC. Scheduled for a seven-week run, it has become a national institution. Those seven weeks have become 50 years – and counting. The programme is, of course, Blue Peter. Despite today’s plethora of channels offering our kids a diet of mental “fast-food” TV, Blue Peter is as wholesome and popular as ever. The original presenters were former Miss Great Britain Leila Williams and an exarmy officer, the avuncular Christopher Trace, whose acting career had included being Charlton Heston’s body double in Ben Hur and whose appointment was not, it is said, unrelated to his prowess at making model train layouts. In the live programme, there were stories illustrated and told by Tony Hart and, in keeping with the times, Trace doing “boys’” items on train sets and the like, while Williams handled the girls’ features, with a lot of emphasis on dolls and dolls’ houses. She left in 1962 to be briefly replaced by Anita West. But a matter of months later Valerie Singleton joined, and the programme’s audience boomed. Singleton, who had trained as an actress, turned out to be the consummate professional, yet with an appealing informal manner, somewhat in contrast to the more staid, authoritative Trace. The show, had, by now, become 30 minutes long.

It was at this time, too, that Petra, the Blue Peter dog who was named by a viewer competition, arrived. Actually, the Petra who arrived in December 1962 was unwell and died a couple of days later of distemper. The producers, not wanting to upset a nation of children, scoured the country for a mongrel that looked similar and eventually found the replacement Petra in a pet shop in Lewisham, south London. Petra was to stay with the programme until her death in 1977, but by then pets had become an integral part of the programme, with a succession of dogs, tortoises and cats. Trace’s nine-year stint on the programme ended in 1967, making way for the creation of the team that everyone remembers as the heyday of Blue Peter. First came Peter Purves, fresh from appearances as Dr Who assistant Steven and, soon after, John Noakes arrived. By this point the format was fully developed, with the

presenters exuding much more fun, being much more “hands on” and tackling a wider range of activity features than in the early days. Singleton appeared as the calming influence on the two male presenters, who had an amazing rapport, exuding fun and mischief. In this era we saw Singleton accompany Princess Anne on safari in Kenya, Purves climb the Forth Bridge and Noakes free-fall parachute with the Red Devils and climb Nelson’s Column. We had the arrival of the coveted Blue Peter badge, the Advent Crown, the Blue Peter annual appeal and an abundance of washing liquid bottles and sticky-back plastic being transformed into “one I made earlier”. And who can forget the incident with a baby elephant turning the studio floor into a skating rink?

And then it was the time of Shep. Noakes had originally been given responsibility for Patch, one of Petra’s puppies, but when he died a black and white collie called Shep arrived. He and Noakes were inseparable, even going on to make the series Go With Noakes together. “Down Shep!” became a national catchphrase. But the story of the pair had an unhappy ending. Amid acrimony, the BBC, which owned the dog, refused to let him stay with Noakes, who, after his TV career, retired to Majorca. The programme began to be shown twice a week. To cope, a new presenter, Lesley Judd, arrived. A former Young Generation dancer, she was to become a heartthrob for a generation of small boys as she slotted into the role of chief ‘maker’ on the programme, as well as taking part in her own death-defying action reports. In subsequent years presenters went, presenters came. Memorable among them are Janet Ellis, Sarah Greene, Mark Curry, Caron Keating, John Leslie, Anthea Turner, Diane-Louise Jordan and Katy Hill. And throughout it all, the programme has stayed essentially constant. There has not been obvious reinvention, just a very gentle evolution that has always managed to keep young viewers enthralled.

Rental Guarantee A short while ago I wrote an article in this newspaper that mentioned the vulnerability of landlords who rent their properties. I touched briefly on the advantages of including an annex in the rental contract, namely the ‘Garantia de Alquilar’ (rental guarentee). These advantages include: * Payment and update of rental payments * Payment of service expenses * Damages caused by the misuse of the building * Immediate recovery of the building if the contract is broken * Renovation of banking endorsement * Unauthorized works carried out on the

property * Unauthorized subleasing of the property

In this edition I will explain briefly what a Garantia de Renta actually is and what happens when it is in place and a conflict between a landlord and tenant arises. Firstly, it refers to an agreement between the landlord and the tenant whereby they agree to take any disagreement between themselves, directly before the Spanish Court of Economic Arbitration of Right and Fairness in order to resolve any controversy related to the rental contract. If a problem arises during the rental period, for example the non-

payment of the rent, and the landlord wishes to reclaim the missed payments including the repossession of the property, they only have to present the case before the aforementioned Court, without requiring the intervention of a lawyer or legal representative and without having to pay additional costs other than those associated with this agreement (52 euros) The legal proceedings begin with a written notification to the parties involved. This process is simple and straightforward and cannot be delayed by the non-participation of the people involved. Once notified, both sides have the opportunity

to present allegations and evidence during the period of seven days and the process concludes with the decision of the court. The administrative costs for this process will be paid for by the losing party. These costs never exceed 90 euros plus an additional 55 euros for the initial notifications. Finally, should one of the sides not comply with the court’s decision, more forceful action will be initiated against them. In this case it will be handed to the high court and lawyers will become involved. The overseeing organization will take on the costs at this point thus covering any financial needs of the innocent parties.

Top 10 Tips For Wealth Firstly the most important first step to achieving good Feng Shui is to perform a space clearing or de-cluttering process. Everyone's home or office has accumulated stagnant negative energy that needs to be eliminated.

4. Enhance your wealth area with symbols of prosperity, such as a bowl of coins, gold ingots, a Buddha sitting on a pile of gold coins and fish symbols are all popular Feng Shui symbols for wealth.

Clutter is a sign of that stagnant energy, and clutter in your money power spot can clog up your cash flow. This decluttering process will make all other cures more effective. You know what they say "a tidy camp site is a happy camp site"! Today it’s your home or office we are targeting, using my top ten tips to enhance your wealth.

5. If you neglect your money, it will neglect you, so be sure to balance your accounts book regularly and pay your bills on time. Put your cheque book in an attractive cover (choose green, purple, or red) and keep it in the wealth area of your desk - that's the far left hand corner of the desk -- or in the wealth area of your office/room.

1. The south east corner of your home and/or office is your wealth sector so it must be kept as clean and tidy. The lighting should resemble natural light, not too bright or too dim.

6. Place a blue or black rug in your front entryway to symbolize a river of opportunities flowing into your home or business.

2. Fix things that are broken. Anything that doesn't work as it should is a sign of something wrong in the area of your life that corresponds to that part of your space.

7. All your finances escape through the drainage system within your home or office so place the plug in the holes in the sinks and leave the toilet lid down at all times (virtually impossible but try).

3. A fish tank is excellent in the wealth area. Nine gold fish are an auspicious number. Eight gold and one black are recommended.

8. Three coins tied with red ribbon should be placed near your phone to attract opportunities and enhance the financial outcome of phone

calls. If you use a computer in your business it would be beneficial to hang three coins from your computer. 9. The mythical, money frog is a wealth attractor. Place one inside your office door, facing inward. This symbolizes wealth coming your way.

You can call me on 96 648 2636 if you would like more advise on FENG SHUI or would like to book a consultation or visit http.//www.fengshui-solutions.co.uk

10. A Jade or Money plant placed in the wealth corner of your home or office will enhance your finances, look after the plant well and watch your money grow. 11. L i v e generously. Money is a form of energy, and it needs to flow through your life, not just into it, while giving generously with your time, energy, compassion, and appreciation and money within your means, makes space for even greater abundance

Salad Crops Practical For The Winter Stain Removal Liz Edmiston's tips on getting rid of common household spills will save you time and a few headaches. If you have kids, you’ll appreciate this invaluable advice. My kids aren’t particularly accident prone, but we still have our daily share of spills, thrills and mess all over the floor, carpet and clothes. Sometimes the stains are easier to remove than others, and sometimes I just don’t know where to start! There is still just time in warmer zones to plant some salad leaves for eating this winter. ‘Canónigos’ (cannon) is a salad leaf with several varieties suitable for cropping throughout the winter. These are. Topaze, Trophy, Verde de Cambrai and Verde de Louviers. One packet of seeds should provide enough leaves for 4 persons. Here’s how to ensure a steady supply of leaves this winter. 1. Plant the seeds at regular intervals at a shallow depth and cover with soil. Press lightly with the back of a rake and water with a fine spray. 2. Water daily, keeping the soil damp until the first shoots appear, around 1 to 3 weeks later. 3. After around 4 weeks, the small plants will

have 3 or 4 leaves. Select the strongest plants, and leave them to grow at a spacing of around 10cm apart. Remove the remaining weaker plants. 4. Check for damage by snails and slugs, taking any appropriate action, such as slug traps, to protect the plants. 5. Once the plants are big enough, with around a dozen large leaves, you can begin to cut the leaves for salads. Cut across the bottom of the plants stem, taking as many leaves as you need each time. 6. Once the crop is exhausted, the following spring the plants can be pulled up and dug in to the ground to enrich it. Next time. Growing shallots

Use this basic guide to help you remove some of the most common stains in the home during your kid’s formative years!

Inks

hairspray. This will break up the ink. Blot until you have removed as much of the stain as possible, and then wash in the usual way. An old method, but apparently very effective, is to put sour milk on the stain. Although it does work with fresh milk, soured milk removes the stain faster.

Fruit juice and berry stains

These groups of stains are easier to remove if tackled straightaway. If you let them dry on the fabric, they are very difficult if not impossible to remove, especially blackcurrant juice! Treat the stain with cool water first to dilute and remove the worst of the juice. Then soak if possible in nappy wash solution. For white cotton or linen, place the stain over a pan and pour boiling water through it from above, taking care not to scald yourself. Another solution is to make a paste from Cream of Tartar and warm water and apply this to the stain. Leave until the stain has gone and then wash as usual.

Egg stains Ink such as ballpoint pen is hard to remove. Place the stained part over an old towel or absorbent cloth. Spray with an alcohol based

The secret with egg is not to use warm or hot water, as this simply sets the egg, making it more difficult to remove. Scrape off as much as you can, then sponge with tepid water. If this does not remove the stain, try

the mix of cream of tartar and water, this time with a crushed aspirin added to the paste. Daub on to the stain and leave for around half an hour, then rinse well.

Wax and crayons and chewing gum

The easiest way to remove gum or wax from an item is to simply place the whole thing in the freezer. This makes the gum/wax very brittle and it will just break off the garment. For outside areas, you can place ice, picnic cool pack or even a bag of frozen peas on the gum, wait for it to harden and chip it away. If a stain remains, try ironing over it with a warm iron. Place absorbent paper on top and press gently to remove the residue. Use your common sense - do a patch test first, or test on an area that is not noticeable. If the garment is very precious or valuable, consult a specialist cleaner.

Drink Gorgeous Grapefruit

The exact origin of the grapefruit is not known, but it is thought to be a natural cross between the sweet orange and the pomelo (a different species despite the name!) which occurred in Barbados. The fruit soon spread throughout the Caribbean, and from there to the USA and on to Europe. The US is still the world leader in terms of production, but is closely followed by Cuba, Israel and Mexico. Spain is also a major producer, with the majority of the fruit being grown in Murcia and Valencia. Grapefruit flower in the spring, and the fruit ripen during the autumn and winter, so the best time to buy grapefruit in season is from October to March. What to look for: • A good fruit will be shaped like a slightly flattened sphere. • The fruit should be about 10cm in diameter, although can vary from 7cm up to 25cm, and the fruit should weigh between 200 to 450g. • The skin is green initially, but ripens to yellow and orange red, depending on the variety. • Not everyone likes the taste! It is a slightly bitter taste, less acidic than lemon, but not as sweet as an orange. • Pick the fruit that seem heavy for their size, as they will be the ones full of juice! Grapefruit can be stored for a week at room temperature, longer in the fridge. Of course, they are very good for you, with a calorie count of only 28 per 100g, and rich in Vitamin C and folic acid. And if you can’t face one for breakfast, try using the juice in cocktails (Grapefruit Margarita anyone?) or with diet lemonade as a spritzer.

Grapefruit Salsa 1. Take 1 grapefruit and peel and cut into small segments, removing all the pith. 2. Add 3 spring onions, finely diced, plus a tablespoon of red wine vinegar, 2 teaspoons of honey and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. 3. Mix and mash well, and season to taste with black pepper and chopped mint. Chill in the fridge. 4. Use as a dipping sauce with oriental style crackers, or serve as an accompaniment to pork steaks or chicken.

If you are taking Statins please check with your doctor before consuming grapefruit!

Weekly meeting upstairs Rumours Bar, Sector B Camposol, every Wednesday at 10.15am. Eat well and cut down on your calorie intake with our new healthy eating guide. One of the keys to losing weight successfully is to eat foods that keep you feeling full for longer. This means that you will be able to go longer between meals, and avoid ‘in-between’ snacking. Studies have shown that people eating higher protein foods feel more satisfied and eat fewer calories. However, it is important to eat lean, low fat sources of protein in order to make healthy choices. Protein is an essential part of a balanced diet, and is needed for growth, muscle condition and cellular replacement and repair. Here are some good low fat sources of protein: Baked beans Lean steak Canned tuna Boiled eggs Chicken or turkey breast White fish Pulses such as lentils and chick peas Vegetarian proteins, such as soya mince, tofu and ‘Quorn’ Try to incorporate a protein rich food into each meal, for example, boiled eggs and wholemeal toast for breakfast, a chicken salad for lunch, and steak with jacket potato and vegetables for dinner. It’s not as difficult as you think!

Two matches, and two totally different performances have seen Mazarrón inflict a first defeat on runaway leaders Caravaca with a superb performance, and they followed this in less impressive style with a 2-2 draw away to strugglers Plus Ultra. This was the first point that Mazarrón have gained away from home since the end of April. The match against Caravaca was a fine example of a team with limited resources overcoming and outplaying a team that has been much more successful this season. The visitors were the only team not to be promoted through the playoffs from this league last season, and they came to Mazarrón with a record of played six, won six, scored twenty four and conceded only two. The match was in doubt due to the appalling weather, but the skies brightened a little and the wind dropped and it got underway forty minutes late. The crowd that had turned up was well rewarded. Caravaca applied the early pressure, but in the 18th minute Mazarrón broke down the left and the cross from Cuenca was met firmly by Rocamora for the opener. Mazarron were now in the ascendancy and they continued to apply pressure down both wings, with Quintana and Kike combining well in the middle. It was this partnership that was responsible for the second. Quintana had the ball in the centre but he was forced wide by defender San Jose. He still managed to turn and get in a cross that was hit on the volley by Kike for a superb second. In the second half Caravaca tried desperately for goals but they were unable to break down the defence with Rocamora and Del Baño playing particularly well together. The away striker Petu was sent off just before the end, and this epitomized the frustration of the entire team as they were sent home pointless. The next match was a visit to newly promoted Plus Ultra, so far struggling to establish themselves in the higher league. This game was of much lower quality and both sides found the dirt pitch difficult to cope with. However, it was punctuated by some excellent goals. After only 7 mins, Mazarrón took the lead. A free kick on the left was delivered perfectly into the danger zone by Javi, and Cuenca rose above the defence to head in his first goal of the season. Only 7 mins later, Plus Ultra were level. Llanit had an excellent shot deflected for a corner by Soto, and the kick from Andres was inexplicably put out for another corner by Deaza, when he appeared to have plenty of time to clear up field. Andres made no mistake the second time,

Parri heading in his welljudged cross. In the second half, as Mazarrón piled on more pressure, Javi seemed to have a good shout for a penalty turned down before Plus Ultra broke to the other end. Canales latched onto a loose ball in the area and steered the ball past Soto to give his team the lead. Three mins later, a Juanmi free kick from 25ms was saved by Alberto and from a resulting throw in, Kike gained a few metres before curling a shot across the goal

Torre Golf Society

The team with the most bowls nearest to the “Jack” wins the “end”. All very well and apparently quite simple except that at the final count in an “end” you can have up to eighteen seemingly identical bowls all vying for nearest position around the lonely “Jack”. Sounds a bit like cricket where you go out to get “in” to get “out” – in bowls you try to get up to lie “shot” in the “head”! You have to be up to the “Jack” to be nearest. But which is whose bowl for a start? In fact all sets of bowls have characteristic unique identity marks to differentiate one player’s bowls from another and when it comes to inter-club competitions the respective clubs apply identity stickers to distinguish their own bowls from the others. But which are the bowls nearest to the “Jack”? Often the bowl nearest to the “Jack” is easily nominated but after that it can be difficult. If the opposing players cannot agree on visual inspection then out come the flexible measuring tapes to settle the issue – at least one hopes so. If not then the rules of the game require that suitable equipment must be available to do the job – callipers, even feeler gauges, and believe it or not a tape measure at least 25 metres long!! Mercifully most of us can get nearer than 25 metres. Well, sometimes!!! The Club had hoped to continue their sequence of moderate interclub success but dreams were well and truly squashed in the away match against near local rivals Country Bowls Bowling Club. The “green” at Country Bowls has a similar surface to our own at Hacienda del Alamo but it was laid some five years ago by comparison to our own which has been down for only nine months or so. In consequence the bowling surface at Country Bowls is much slicker or faster than at Hacienda and so much so that the Mazarrón bowlers found it very difficult indeed to adjust to the speed of the green. At least one experienced bowler from Mazarrón found more than half of his bowls through the head and into the ditch. Mazarrón suffered a 6-0 defeat from nevertheless a very competent team of superior bowlers. We’ll see how things turn out in the return match at Hacienda in the New Year. Nearer at home the Roll-up Competition held on Tuesdays is well underway with Jim Tarrant already heading an impressive field of 67 competitors. First matches in the Club Championships extending to seven categories are also underway with some interesting head-tohead clashes to be resolved. The Triples League got off to a stuttering start due to the onset of inclement weather but at this moment “All Ales” selected from John Smith, Richard and Rose Smith and Colin Sears are leading the field of twelve teams. Some say they have yet to meet decent opposition!! On the social side the Club were very lucky with the weather to hold a “Garden and Games party” attended by some sixty members. Social Secretary Keith Salter and his good lady Jane and her team of helpers had worked hard to present an array of food and a programme of events compered by Harry Male with musical accompaniment by Johnny Sparrow. We had hoped to see some new faces there but had to wait till last week to welcome Lorraine and Morris Light and also Steve Ward to come along and play with us at Hacienda for the first time. New faces, whether experienced bowlers or not, are always welcome and anyone having an interest should make contact with Doug Macfarlane at 968 429 980 or Gordon Tottey at 968 131 846 or refer to our website at www.mazarronvillas.eu/mazarron_ bowls_club.htm.

Anniversary Trophy 6th October 2008 – El Plantio Golf By Ivie Davies

Los Amigos de Mazarrón meet every Thursday afternoon at the Saladillo Vista Bar on Camposol Sector A at 16.00 hours and new supporters are always welcome. If you would like more details, check out the club website at www.losamigosdemazarroncf.com or call Mick, Tony or Steve on either 649 285 257, 634 054 419 or 650 346 611. Tickets are usually 10 euros, but season tickets for members of Los Amigos can be bought for only 50 euros. into the top corner, giving the keeper no chance from about 22ms. This was Kike’s second superb strike in as many matches, and he certainly seems to be finding his scoring touch. The home side had a ‘goal’ disallowed before the end, but the spoils were shared. Mazarrón now have another away match at bottom of the table Muleño, before entertaining high flying Moratalla on the first weekend in November.

It does not seem twelve months since the Torre Golf Society walked onto the first tee at El Plantio with just a dozen members, now one year later there were 47 players from the 71 members playing for the prestigious trophy. The weather was perfect for golf and the course following considerable work on the fairways with Verti draining and tinning it was in good condition, and will get even better. It was great to see such a good turnout and there were a lot of players there bright and early, they must have been aware of the importance of the day, or could it be the quality of the prizes up for grabs. The competition was individual Stableford over three categories. The best score from all three categories would take the trophy. The three first places received golf bags and runners up a putter. The winner of The Anniversary Trophy was rewarded with not just the trophy but a square driver. The results of the day were: Anniversary Trophy: Mick Littlewood 35 points Gold: 1st; Barry Daniel 31 points. 2nd; Ivie Davies 29 points Silver: 1st; Tony Mackman 30 points 2nd; Graham Lester 27 points Bronze: 1st: Vince Lannon 32 points 2nd: Gordon Howieson 29 points Nearest The Pins Hole 9: Barry Daniel Hole 18: Steve Ford Hole 8 3rd Shot: Barry Daniel Best Guest: John Offord 2’s: Paul Smith VFM: David Hallam Mick Littlewood fondly known as M&S is now the holder of two prestigious trophies and driver having won the Costa Blanca News Cup a few months earlier, and also the proud owner of two square drivers, although I am led to believe he is donating one of them to another competition. Thanks Mick. But that will not stop our handicap secretary from looking at the “General Play” rule, so be prepared for a session with Madame Guillotine. So here’s to the next twelve months. Our next competition is at Bonalba on the 20th October for the Bonalba Trophy. 3rd November El Pantio – some places still available. 10th November: Captains Day at Villaitana Golf Resort Benidorm, this is treated as an away day with coach and meal where wives are welcome, and while the men play golf, they will be taken into Benidorm for the day. For more information on Torre Golf Society or to book you place at any competitions than contact Secretary, Ivie Davies email golfdavies@telefonica.net or call 669 211 410.

Very intelligent dog.

Friends

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

Dogs (and wolves and foxes) are descended from a small, weasel-like mammal called Miacis which was a treedwelling creature and existed about 40 million years ago. The first dog to come down from the trees was the Dawn dog. The Dawn dog still exists in Australia. Dogs, as we know them today, first appeared in Eurasia about 13,000 years ago, and were probably a direct descendant of a small, grey wolf (not from the type of jackal or jackal/wolf as previously thought). The dingo is not native to Australia but was introduced

thousands of years ago by the first immigrants. Dogs were first domesticated by cavemen in the Paleolithic age and gradually developed (or were bred) into the breeds known today. The tallest dogs are the Great Dane and the Irish Wolfhound. The largest Great Dane stood at 103cm and an Irish Wolfhound 100cm. The heaviest dog was a St. Bernard weighing 63.5kg. The smallest dogs are the Chihuahua, the Yorkshire Terrier and the Toy Poodle. A Yorkie once weighed in at only 283.5g. Dogs have been used as guards, hunters, draught animals, eyes for the blind, drug and explosive detectors, cancer detectors, rodent controllers and even weapons. In Roman times and the Middle Ages, mastiffs wearing light armour, carrying spikes and pots of flaming sulphur and resin ran into battle against mounted knights. In World War II the Russians trained dogs to run suicide missions between the tracks of German tanks with

mines strapped on their backs. Dogs' hearing is very acute. They can register sounds of 35,000 vibrations a second (compared to our 20,000 and a cat's 25,000). Dogs naturally have a wonderful sense of smell. They have many more sensory 'smelling' cells than a man's 5,000,000. A Dachshund has 125,000,000, a Fox Terrier 147,000,000 and a German Shepherd (often used as a 'sniffer' dog) has 220,000,000. Truffle hounds can find the fungus delicacy even when it's a foot underground! The oldest reliable age recorded for a dog is 29 years, 5 months for a Queensland 'heeler' called Bluey in Victoria, Australia. The average dog lives to around 15 years of age. The common belief that dogs are colour blind is false. Dogs can see colour but it is not as vivid a color scheme as we see. It is much like our vision at twilight. Dogs dream. If you look at your dog while it's sleeping, sometimes you'll see its eyes

move and twitch under its eyelids. Humans do this too, and we definitely dream. So researchers are almost positive that dogs have dreams too. Of course, no one knows what dogs dream about. The bloodhound is the only animal whose evidence is admissible in an American court. The pom-pom cut was originally developed to increase the poodle's swimming abilities as a retriever. The haircut allowed for faster swimming but the pom-poms were left to keep the joints warm. Big dogs have larger litters than smaller dogs, but smaller dogs generally live much longer than larger dogs.

Making your money go further

Money saving ideas that will help you to spend wisely by Liz Edmiston If you are anything like me, you always have too much month left at the end of the money!..... and in today’s economic climate probably more now than ever! Kids are expensive, and the little beggars just keep on growing, meaning that cashstrapped parents need to keep on buying trainers, clothes, school uniforms and more in ever increasing sizes. Many people here in Spain are living on fixed or reduced income, and whilst the cost of living is less than the UK, every bit of cash you save gives you that little bit more to spend on “extras” or save for a rainy day. Here are some money saving ideas to help you make your hard earned cash go just a little bit further. Who knows, one day it might even last until the end of the month!! Buy food products at the right time of year. If you look around the supermarkets these days,

nothing ever seems to be “out of season”. With the huge increase in food production, changes to farming methods and better transportation just about every product is available all year long. But stop and take a look at the prices. We pay a large premuim for the pleasure of eating our fruit and vegetables out of season. Here in Spain, our first strawberries of the year in April are very expensive, but wait about 6 weeks and the markets are almost giving them away. Check out your region’s local and seasonal stuff. Stockpile goods you can store when the prices are cheap. If not, then just buy in season to save money and take the time to get to the local markets for fresher, cheaper produce. Wait for the end of season sales and plan your purchases. Don’t automatically rush out and replace everything as it breaks or wears out. Make a list

of all the things you will need and then wait for the sales to begin. Here we have them twice a year, end of summer and after Christmas and the bargains to be had are amazing, especially in clothes. For the kids, buy big sizes – you know for sure that they will grow into them one day. My son is 7 but has an age 12 hiking coat I picked up for about €5 waiting for him in the store room! Store them in labelled boxes with your child’s name and the age range. Just don’t forget to check the boxes occasionally before you go out to buy new stuff. You may have bought it already! Check your credit card spending. Don’t be afraid to compare rates and switch to get a better deal. Lenders rely on your complacency to make them money. Most people can’t be bothered to change, but these days with online applications it can be simple and quick to get a better deal. If you can

find interest free offers, even if only for 6 months, it is worth transferring funds. You can always switch again once the time is up. If you have any savings, consider using some to pay off credit card and other expensive debt. As long as you have sufficient in your rainy day fund, any excess is probably not earning great interest sitting in a checking or low rate saving account. You, however, are meanwhile paying high interest rates to the credit card companies for the privilege of borrowing money you may already have! Don’t get into the habit of using plastic. Pay cash where you can, and if you haven’t got the cash stop and ask yourself if you really need it. Review costs of your internet, telephone and other utility bills. It is a very competitive marketplace out there, and costs and savings

vary significantly. Check the press, look for special deals with different providers and review past bills and consumption to see how much you could save. Every small step you take to make your money work harder for you is worth it as the savings accumulate. Don’t be lazy about it, it’s YOUR cash you’re wasting!

The Cinderella Tale... The Cinderella tale, so simple and so profound, offers a direct road into and through the thickets of envying and being envied. Envy between sisters, between mothers and daughters, between the sexes, between nations; inwardly, between different parts of our own psyche; envy even of God. The central role of envy in determining the very nature of our society. At the core of envy seems to be an upward social comparison, that threatens a person's selfesteem: another person has something that the envier considers to be important to have. If the other person is perceived to be similar as the envier, the aroused envy will be particularly intense, because it signals to the envier that it just as well could have been him or her who had the desired object. When Cinderella's sisters envy her, they get off the hook of their struggle with themselves and their relation to the good. They avoid trying

to relate to their own selves by means of noisy accusations directed against Cinderella. They avoid figuring out their relation - to their mother, to the prince, or to what they see as the good life. Instead of inspecting and muddling along in these real relationships, they mount vociferous attacks on Cinderella. All the sisters' energies go into trying to destroy Cinderella's being instead of trying to take hold of their own, sexually and spiritually. Envy according to the Oxford dictionary means “ a feeling of wishing to have what somebody else has , or to have the same qualities, possessions, opportunities as somebody else”. Envy emerges when we wrongly deal with our desire and badly use the comparison. Like jealousy, envy sits on insecurity caused by lacking awareness of our potential and qualities. Because we don’t really know ourselves, we do not value the self and

build a defective self-esteem. This lack of self trust pushes to compare to others. And there will always be someone more intelligent, faster, taller, and smarter than us. Envy is like a defective mirror, only reflecting back a deformed image, our inabilities. The envy always tries to destroy the envied person minimising his achievements, damaging her reputation with false statements, lying, etc. Envy becomes pathological when any kind of generosity is erased from the envier, feeling instead dissatisfied & bitter with his life. However, the emotional intelligence says that feelings and emotions are neither good nor bad, they simply “are”. They appear without our will so we are not responsible of them. Now, what we are really and only responsible is of what we do with our feelings. It is our right to learn to manage them in ways that their energy can be used to improve ourselves.

Envy can lead us to what needs repair in our identities, in our romantic relationships, in our sexuality and our spiritual centres, and in our efforts to relate to the good. And envy can point us toward the places that are in pain and need healing. Envy, so spoiling and injurious, can, if managed consciously, point us toward the good we thirst for. Concentrating on our own personal growth is laborious and takes time but

this self knowledge will be progressively improving our self-esteem. At the same time it is important to make plans in our life to achieve what we desire instead of paying attention to what others do. If we use our energy to create our own future, there will be no time to destroy. The choice is yours, and the resources are at hand. Seek help from a good friend or a therapist and use your potential for your own good.

Should you advertise? Everyone uses advertising, be it to look for a job, sell their house or find a car. We all also see hundreds of advertisements every day, so we are used to it being part of our lives. But how much do we remember? Ask someone to recall the ads they saw on television last night and they will struggle to remember more than a handful. Communication through advertising is by no means easy. However, because advertising is so familiar, people often think of themselves as experts. The decision to advertise your products and services effectively is a very serious matter and requires careful planning and preparation. You must begin by asking yourself "what do I want my advertising to achieve?" The first step is to analyse the benefits to your business that could be gained by advertising. Only when the objectives of the business are clear can the objectives of the advertising be established. For example, try to classify the goods or services you offer and set growth targets within each area over a fixed time period. Then categorise your audience within each of these areas into existing customers and potential new customers. By completing even this simple exercise, you will be in a better position to begin

compiling a marketing and advertising plan. By way of illustration, try the simple exercise that follows. Simply note those statements which best apply to your business today: Who could use your products or services now? 1. People who always buy from a competitor and don't know us. 2. People who buy from a competitor, know us but have never bought from us. 3. People who mainly buy from a competitor, but know us and buy from us occasionally. 4. People who mainly buy from us, but occasionally from our competitors. 5. People who buy from us and never from our competitors. The conclusion that can be drawn from the above exercise is that different types of advertising may be required. Advertising needs to be tailored to its precise audience because it is wasteful to try to communicate to all audiences with equal effort. No single advertising message will appeal to all targets, so hard decisions have to be taken as to which target offers most potential.

Examples of advertising messages: • An advertisement designed for nonusers who don't know you or your products, stimulating an initial interest. • An advertisement designed to make existing customers buy more often from you and less from a competitor, in other words developing loyalty. • An advertisement designed to offer customers something better than your competitors can, encouraging change. • An advertisement designed to reassure existing loyal customers that they are making the right choice buying from you, encouraging them to remain loyal. It is important to understand that even with careful analysis, advertising remains a matter of judgement rather than science. However, you can improve your judgement by increasing your knowledge of your industry, your business and, most importantly, your customers. Next issue - Knowing your customer

Encryption Method of ‘scrambling’ email messages for security so they appear as ‘gobbledegook’ to everyone but the intended recipient. Freeware A program which the author lets you use free of charge. Hit A visit to a page (these are counted by the companies to see how many people access their site). Homepage This can be either the page your web browser automatically loads when you run it or your own personal page. HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) Is the code that creates every web page. Your web browser reads the HTML and then shows the page on your screen. HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) The protocol used to carry traffic between a browsers computer and the web site.

Old Fashioned Gingerbread

It’s nearly Hallow’een, and the ghosties, ghoulies and long leggedy beasties will be knocking on the door on 31st October, looking for a treat. Why not offer them a slice of this gingerbread? It is easy to make, and the raisins make it very tasty and ideal with a cup of afternoon tea.

My eldest son Cameron had started nursery school in Stranraer. As our farmhouse was situated in the middle of open countryside about 5 miles from the town itself, the school run involved a winding journey through the wet, muddy lanes and tracks in our Land Rover until we reached the seafront. Here we’d be greeted by the sight of the ferry terminal and the grey concrete promenade. More often than not, it was raining and the heavy wind would be gusting across the bay. Not the most inspiring of journeys! The heavy traffic inevitably meant long queues, with impatient drivers honking horns and parking chaos outside the school itself as hundreds of parents flocked to the gates to pick up Junior. Now settled happily in his village school in Spain, the journey could not be more different. We follow the road

along the canal, over a narrow bridge across a gorge, and finally drop down the hillside into the village on a dirt track. It takes us around 15 minutes, and the sight of the wildlife and the mountains never fails to lift our spirits. So far we have seen quail, wild mountain goats, foxes, and rabbits on a regular basis. The only thing we never see? Another car. One night, following the same route back from Maria’s house after walking, we even saw a wild boar. Caught in the glare of the headlights, he stood for a moment, stunned, before ambling off into the mountains. Of course the sunshine helps, and the wonderful views over the valley can’t fail to lift your spirits. Despite a few hairy moments after the occasional bout of heavy rain when the track becomes impassable (we gave in and bought a small 4x4

Halloween Games

Here is a Hallowe’en game for adults and kids alike. Sit in a circle with the light out and the narrator holding a torch to shine up over their face, giving the whole scene a spooky glow! Read aloud by torchlight the story of “My Dear Departed Friend” making it as scary (or not, for the kids) as you like. At the same time, pass round various small bags or dishes of “body parts” (in reality food) for the listeners to put their hands in and feel. Everyone has to guess the contents of the bags, amid much squealing, and the winner is the person who gets the most grisly items correct.

The spooky truth about Halloween It’s the time of year when children dress up as witches and monsters, demand treats from their neighbours and make spooky lanterns out of carved pumpkins. But have you ever wondered what Halloween is really all about? Nowadays this spooky event is nothing more than an excuse for children (and some adults) to don scary costumes and tell ghost stories, but there is more to Halloween than pumpkins and fancy dress? Ever wondered why we carve lanterns out of pumpkins? Or dress up as witches and monsters? Wonder no more. Here are some interesting facts about Halloween to get you in the mood for some spooky hocus-pocus.

What is Halloween?

The origins of Halloween date back more than 2000 years to pagan times when the Celts would observe the end of harvest and the onset of winter on November the 1st. To the Celts, summer symbolised life and winter symbolised death and so the night before the winter began on October 31st, the Celts would celebrate what they called Samhain. They believed that on this night the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the worlds of the dead became blurred and the spirits of the dead could roam the earth and create chaos. Some people even believed that the spirits searched for bodies to possess on this night. Realising that this festival was popular the Church decided to incorporate it into All Hallows Eve which was an existing Christian holiday. However, the pagan elements of the festival received bad press from the Church, who believed Samhain to be nothing more than an excuse for witches to make trouble. As a result, they decided to play down these elements and eventually it was reduced to an evening of pranks when children would dress up and play games. Over time the name was shortened to Halloween.

Why do we wear masks and costumes?

Halloween’s tradition of donning masks and costumes comes from the original October 31st celebration. The Celts dressed themselves in costumes made from animal heads and skins and danced around the bonfire, told fortunes and waited for the dark night to bring in the New Year. It is also believed that the Celts wore costumes on October 31st to scare off spirits wanting to possess them for the winter, while the noisy dance around the bonfire kept spirits of the dead far away from the living.

Why do we trick or treat?

In Europe, during the All Saints Day festivities, less fortunate people begged from the wealthy in hopes of getting a meal for the day. The beggars were offered pastries if they promised to pray for the dead relatives of those who gave the treats. Others believe the tradition started from the ancient settlers leaving gifts of food and drink for the spirits roaming the world on October 31st. The spirits went door-todoor looking for people to possess but left occupants unharmed if treats were left for their taking.

Why do we carve pumpkin lanterns?

Originally in England, turnips not pumpkins were hollowed out and made into lanterns with faces in order to scare away evil spirits on Halloween. However, this tradition crossed the Atlantic to North America, where pumpkins were used as lanterns, intended to guide the spirits to a place where a portion of the festival meal would be left for them.

Halloween superstitions

1. All journeys by foot, horse, or vehicle must be made before darkness falls on All Hallows Eve, or the traveller will not reach his destination. If this is not possible then the traveller should carry a piece of bread sprinkled with salt in his pocket as the salt will keep witches away. 2. Curious to know who your Mr or Mrs Right is? At midnight on Halloween cut an apple through the middle to expose the star shaped core and eat it as you look into a mirror. The face of your true love will appear before you. 3. Ringing a bell on Halloween night will scare evil spirits away. 4. It was once thought that a person born on Halloween could see and communicate with the spirit world. 5. If you put your clothes on inside out and then walk backwards on the night of Halloween, then at midnight, you will see a witch flying through the sky. 6. To ward off evil spirits, simply walk round your house backwards three times before sunset on Halloween.

Cold cooked pasta, preferably spaghetti (intestines) A piece of lightly greased cling film (slimy skin) A handful of unpopped corn kernels (teeth) A prune or dried apricot (ear) A small sea sponge, slightly wet (the brain) A plastic glove filled with sand, tied up and frozen A couple of olives (eyes) (and a handy supply of wet wipes for cleaning off the goo!) Some pencils and paper for the listeners to write down their guesses.

Start reading the gruesome tale, just make sure that you have the items lined up in the correct order and pass them around the circle as you get to the appropriate bit of the poem! Here lies Fred, my dear, departed friend I know he wished that he could come and see us before the end He was a generous man, and a giving man too And now he wants to share some of his body parts with you! He was a jolly man with a great big gut Here come his intestines, dare you take a look? Fresh from the ground, all wet and cold, A little too slimy, a little too old Twisted and curly, all in a bunch, Just like they were when he’d eaten his lunch! (pass around the spaghetti) His skin was fair and almost white, Touch this piece and don’t take a fright It might feel slimy and shiny and cold, But it’s just a little wrinkly and a little bit old, A little bit dirty, as he lived in a cave And he never really had the time to bathe (pass around the oily cling film) One eyeball looked left, the other looked right, Oh yes, poor Fred had very bad sight Handle these gently in case they roll, Fred wouldn’t like it if they fell out the bowl (pass around small dish with the 2 olives) Poor Fred he was not a very smart man, We found his brains stuffed in a can, You can feel that there’s not much left of them, It shows the kind of man he’d been (pass around the bag with the damp sponge) Fred, he was proud of his pearly whites, A good set of teeth helped him eat right His teeth were strong and full of might, Have a feel, but watch they don’t bite! (pass around the corn kernels) Just like Van Gogh, Fred had only one ear, But he always heard just fine and clear, This ear is shrivelled because it is old, It’s also quite slimy, and waxy and cold (pass around the apricot) The last thing we found were Fred’s strong hands, Deep down in the soil, covered with sand Cold and stiff, just where he died, Go ahead and shake one, don’t think that I’ve lied! (pass around cold sand-filled glove) With all the bits together, safe and sound It is time to put Fred back into the ground, And now you have met my dear departed friend, It is time to bring this tale to a sorry end. Also for adults, if the weather is fine, organise a “Scavenger Hunt”, with digital cameras, with clues to lead them to local landmarks and items which they then have to photograph. Of course, fancy dress is compulsory, and the winning team are the ones to solve all the clues and bring back pics of all the items!

For the Kids For the younger family members, try a couple of the following • Pin the nose on the witch. Just as pin the tail on the donkey, except draw a witch on the paper and cut out a cardboard nose. Blindfold the kids, spin them 3 times and the closest to where the nose really should be is the winner! • Witches Hat. Get a pack of ping pong balls, and draw eyeballs on them. Buy or make a witches hat and have fun throwing the eyeballs in turn. The one who gets the most balls in the hat is the winner. • Pass the pumpkin. Just like “Pass the parcel” except you pass around a small pumpkin. If holding the pumpkin when the music stops, the child is eliminated. The last one holding the pumpkin at the end gets a small prize. • If the weather lets you down, buy some Hallowe’en sweets and hide them around the house. Turn off the lights and have a torchlight sweet hunt. Give all the kids a small freezer bag to collect their stash!

Spooky Halloween superstitions If you avoid ladders like the plague, salute to magpies and never put new shoes on the table, you could have a bit of trouble come October 31st. Why? Because Halloween absolutely abounds with spooky superstitions. This ancient pagan festival is traditionally said to be when the spirits of the dead roam freely among the living, so it is little wonder that this mystical day is riddled with superstitions. So whether you’re a sceptic, a firm believer or simply like to err on the side of caution, here is a round up of Halloween’s spookiest superstitions!

Animal superstitions • • • • •

If you see a spider on Halloween, it could be the spirit of a dead loved one who is watching you. In North America, it is bad luck if a black cat crosses your path on Halloween and good luck if a white cat crosses your path. In Britain, Ireland, and Japan it is exactly the opposite! If bats come out early and fly around playfully on Halloween, then it is a sign of good weather to come. If a bat flies into a house on Halloween it is a sign that ghosts are about. Many people used to believe that owls swooped down to eat the souls of the dying. If they heard an owl hooting, they would become frightened. A common remedy was thought to turn your pockets inside out and then you would be safe.

Halloween is all about spooky superstitions.

Spirit superstitions • • • • • •

If you ring a bell on Halloween it will scare evil spirits away. If a candle flame suddenly turns blue there is a ghost near by. You should walk around your home three times backwards and anti-clockwise before sunset on Halloween to ward off evil spirits. To prevent ghosts coming into the house at Halloween, bury animal bones or a picture of an animal near the doorway. A person born on Halloween can see and talk to spirits. In Britain/Ireland it was believed that if you were walking along on Halloween night and you heard footsteps behind you, you should not look back as it might be the dead following.

Fortune-telling superstitions • • •

Peel an apple from top to bottom. The person with the longest unbroken peel would be assured the longest life. If you threw the apple peel over your shoulder, the initial it forms upon landing is the initial of your future mate. A woman looking for a husband should put a sprig of rosemary and a sixpence under her pillow on Halloween night. And she will dream of her future husband that night! Take a candle and look into a mirror whilst combing your hair on the night of Halloween, your future husband is said to appear in the reflection behind you.

Pumpkin trivia

The only time most of us see a pumpkin is at Halloween when people make Jack o’ Lanterns out of them by scooping out the flesh and carving a scary looking face into the front. But where do pumpkins come from? And why do we use them at Halloween? The idea of using pumpkins as lanterns at Halloween originates from pagan times when people lit lanterns and bonfires to ward off evil spirits. But there is far more to the humble pumpkin than you might think. Here are ten interesting facts you probably didn’t know about these brightly coloured vegetables. 1. A pumpkin is really a squash and comes from the same family as the cucumber. But if you ever manage to carve a cucumber lantern – you’re really very clever indeed! 2. Pumpkins can be grown all over the world – except in Antarctica. 3. The pumpkin capital of the world is – not surprisingly – in the USA. Morton, Illinois is the place to go for your pumpkins. If that seems a bit far, you could try your local supermarket instead. 4. The word “pumpkin” originates from the word “pepon” which is Greek for “large melon”. The French adapted this word to “pompon,” which the English changed to “pompion” and later American colonists changed that to the word we use today, “pumpkin.” 5. Did you know there are over 50 different types of pumpkin? They have great names such as the Spooktacular, the Funny Face and the Munchkin. 6. The smallest pumpkins can weigh as little as 2lb, whilst the largest commonly grown can weigh over 150lbs. You’ll need a big garden for one of those! 7. If your pumpkin lantern shrivels up, you can restore it by soaking it overnight in water to rehydrate it. But remember to take out the candle, first. 8. Did you know that you can get blue, green, red, grey and white pumpkins, as well as the traditional orange ones? 9. A world record breaking pumpkin was grown in 1999 by Gerry Checkon of Altoona in Pennsylvania, USA. The monster vegetable weighed in at 1,131lb (513kg). Now that’s big! 10. Pumpkins are medicinal, as well as fun and tasty. The seeds are used for de-worming and the pulp is often used to relieve burns. They also have many health benefits, some of which include being a good source of protein, zinc and other vitamins and they’re even said to lower cholesterol.

Pumpkins originate from North America and have many health benefits.

Beauty

Aromatherapy and its origins With origins dating back 5000 years, Aromatherapy is truly one of the oldest methods of holistic healing. Aromatherapy, as it is practiced today, began with the Egyptians, who used the method of infusion to extract the oils from aromatic plants which were used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes as well as embalming. At a similar time, ancient Chinese civilizations were also using some form of aromatics. Generally essential oils are extracted nowadays using distillation. Essential oils are the highly concentrated essences of aromatic plants. When essential oils are inhaled, olfactory receptor cells are stimulated and the impulse is transmitted to the emotional center of the brain, or "limbic system". The limbic system is connected to areas of the brain linked to memory, breathing, and blood circulation, as well as the endocrine glands which regulate hormone levels in the body. The properties of the oil, the fragrance and its effects, determine stimulation of these systems. When used in massage, essential oils are not only inhaled, but absorbed through the skin as well. They penetrate the tissues and find their way into the bloodstream where they are transported to the organs and systems of the body. The oils can be used in a number of ways but it is important that you use them correctly. If you are new to aromatherapy, consult an aromatherapy specialist who will be able to advice you as to which oils are suitable for you and how you should use them. Some oils are unsuitable for use by people with certain medical conditions and essential oils should not be used during pregnancy without medical advice being obtained first.

A-Z of Aromatherapy Oils Anise (Pimpinella anisum) Anise is a native of Egypt, Greece and Asia Minor and as well as being cultivated by the Egyptians was also familiar to the ancient Greeks and was grown in the herb gardens of Europe in medieval times. It has a rich sweet liquorice aroma and is most familiar as a culinary herb. It has been used in various ways for centuries and nowadays is used in some alcoholic drinks, cough sweets, cordials and digestive remedies among other things. It is also used in other ways, as in toothpaste and some insect repellents. This versatile essential oil is extracted from the seeds of the plant using steam distillation. Not recommended for people with hypersensitive skin or skin problems. It is used medicinally for digestive upsets, flatulence, aches and pains and in cough medicines. It is helpful in cases of a sluggish digestion; its head clearing properties help to ease the congestion of catarrh and it helps also to relieve the pain of colic. It has properties ranging from warming to muscle relaxant, and is an effective insect repellent particularly when combined with carbolic oil.

Beauty Isn't Skin Deep Most of us look in the mirror and see something we’d like to change, whether it’s a flabby tummy, bingo wings or wonky teeth. But how many of us would be happy to go under the knife to achieve the perfect look? Surprisingly, not as many as you might think; only one in 20 women living in the UK has so far chosen to go under the surgeon’s knife and six out of 10 of us would never or are very unlikely to have cosmetic surgery, according to a survey for online beauty retailer Beautyflash.com. Not only have most women never had a cosmetic procedure, but seven out of 10 of us think cosmetic surgery makes you less beautiful, not more so. Virtually all those asked agreed that a woman could be beautiful at any age and use beauty products, rather than surgery, to sustain good looks. However, its not just high morals that keep most of us from the surgeon’s knife, as it seems improved financial status would make a world of difference to our views on a nip, a tuck or some remodelling. If money were no object, over half of us would gladly undergo cosmetic dentistry, according to the survey. A further 52 per cent would opt for permanent hair removal, while only 16 per cent would be in favour of having breast implants and just 13 per cent thought a facelift would be a good idea. The same number would opt for a ‘”nose

job”, despite its image as a popular and common procedure. The most popular personal treatments were cosmetic dentistry, permanent body hair removal, Brazilians and Botox, but while we might be happy to have one of these treatments, there are others very few of us would endure. Procedures such as collagen implants proved to be very controversial, according to the survey findings. Only one in 20 women would consider having collagen implants if money were no object. Even less popular than this was vaginal lip trimming, which, nonetheless, was still three times more popular than buttock implants. Lisa de la Plain is head beauty therapist for Beautyflash and treated burns victim and Paddington rail crash survivor Pam Warren after the surgical reconstruction of her face. She says: “More and more of us are taking care of our appearance and we all agree that we can carry on looking beautiful throughout our lives. "This survey shows most women believe they can stay beautiful by using the right products and occasionally having a personal treatment. Combined with a good diet, use of quality beauty products offers a far less invasive way of preserving your looks for longer.” Would you change anything about your appearance?

Changing Times!

According to today's regulators and bureaucrats, those of us who were kids in the 60's, 70's and early 80's probably shouldn't have survived, because our baby cots were covered with brightly coloured lead-based paint, which was promptly chewed and licked. Wehadnochildprooflidson medicine bottles, or latches on doors or cabinets and it was fine to play with pans. When we rode our bikes, we wore no helmets, just flip-flops and fluorescent 'spokey dokey's' on our wheels. As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or airbags – riding in the passenger seat was a treat. We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle and it tasted the same.

Weatechips,breadand butter pudding and drank fizzy juice with sugar in it, but we were never overweight because we were always outside playing. We shared one drink with four friends, from one bottle or can and no one actually died from this. We would spend hours building go-carts out of scraps and then went top speed down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into stinging nettles a few times, we learned to solve the problem. We would leave home in the morning and could play all day, as long as we were back before it got dark. No one was able to reach us and no one minded. We did not have Play stations or X-Boxes, no video

games at all. No 99 channels on TV, no videotape movies, no surround sound, no mobile phones, no personal computers, no DVDs, no Internet chat rooms. We had friends – we went outside and found them. We played elastics and rounders, and sometimes that ball really hurt! We fell out of trees, got cut, and broke bones but there were no lawsuits. Wehadfullonfistfightsbut no prosecution followed from other parents. We played chap-the-door-run-away and were actually afraid of the owners catching us. We walked to friends' homes. We also, believe it or not, WALKED to school; we didn't rely on mummy or daddy to drive us to school, which was just round the corner. We made up games with sticks and tennis balls. We rode bikes in packs of 7 and wore our coats by only the hood. The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke a law was unheard of...They actually sided with the law. This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers and problem solvers and inventors, ever. The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we
