The Sentinella Team Sales: 696 116 552 Deadline date: 18th of each month

What's on the ed's mind this month? The past, the present and the future, thats what! I'ts hard to look forward without reflecting on what has already occurred. Whether it's in our distant past, our recent past or simply just the other day... In the year of our lord 2016, some people have celebrated historic victories while others can't wait to see the back of it and pass quickly onto 2017. Great Britain, heroically won 67 medals in the 2016 Rio Olympics... Hooray!! Then the Brexit... confusion! The passing of a great music icon, David Bowie... sadness. As we wore our poppies with pride (against FIFA's wishes), we cast our minds to those who are no longer with us and those who are more unfortunate than us. The devastation of terrorist attacks in France, the tragic desperation surrounding the poor civilians of Aleppo. The refugee crisis and the thousands that remain homeless... Many poor souls are praying that 2017 may just bring them some hope.

The world held it's breath looking "state side" as Clinton and Trump went toe to toe with the most documented presidential elections in history. The results brought some turbulence to the peace across the states, some still refusing to accept it much like the passing of yet another musical icon, Prince. Although it's the present that we occupy ourselves with, we constantly need to look forward so that we may improve on things, achieve things no matter how insignificant. Look forward to that "big get together" on Christmas Day or the wild celebrations on old years night, the holiday you've booked in March, the family coming to visit you here in Spain (well maybe not?? :0) But yes, we need the future to give us wings and the future is now! So get out there and grab the old

Strange News Taiyuan, China, a real-life Rapunzel showed her locks off on stage in a Chinese park and had her hair measured. It was a staggering 11 feet long. The 60-year-old woman showed off her impressive hair for spectators at a park in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, and revealed the results of the annual measuring of her hair length. She said her hair has grown nearly 19 inches since it was measured last year. The woman said she hasn't cut her hair in 18 years and she is hoping to make it into the Guinness Book of World Records, which currently lists China's Xie Qiuping as the record-holder with hair measuring 18 feet and 5.54 inches long. A Florida police department said an alligator reported wandering near a post office was captured in a resident's back yard. The Mexico Beach Police Department shared photos on Facebook of the 4-foot-long alligator captured by Officer Brenna Hauversburk. "A call came in from the post office for an animal complaint," Hauversburk responded to the scene and soon caught sight of the culprit, a 4-foot-long alligator. "I saw it right in the tree line," said Hauversburk, "Right here in these people's backyard." "It was just sitting there waiting for us to come get it," Hauversburk said. "I hooked the lasso on the end of the trash grabber, slipped it over his neck, and just held on cause he put up a nice fight." The FWC released the alligator a safe distance away from residential areas, officials said.

Christmas Poem Eat up, it is Christmas time, food is going amok: Turkey, peas, potatoes, and dressing perhaps even a duck. It’s OK, eat away: Corn, gravy, cranberries, ham. Eat up, it is Christmas day: Salad, rolls, butter and jams.

Stats Some of Santa’s Stats There are currently 78 people named S. Claus living in the U.S. -- and one Kriss Kringle. (You gotta wonder about that one kid's parents) December is the most popular month for nose jobs.

Eat up, it is Christmas time: Chips, bean dip, carrots, peas. You must do it, it is the season. Grape juice, milk, teas and coffee. You can not refuse; there is no reason: Cake, gum, chocolate, candy. The year is ending, never fear. New Years Eve will soon be here All resolutions will be listed in play. A diet awaits you the very next day.

Weight of Santa's sleigh loaded with one Beanie Baby for every kid on earth: 333,333 tons. Number of reindeer required to pull a 333,333-ton sleigh: 214,206 - plus Rudolph. To deliver his gifts in one night, Santa would have to make 822.6 visits per second, sleighing at 3,000 times the speed of sound. At that speed, Santa and his reindeer would burst into flame instantaneously.

Soliloquy For The Past So true... We met and we married a long time ago. We worked for long hours when wages were low. No TV, no wireless, no bath, times were hard. Just a cold water tap and a walk in the yard. No holidays abroad, no carpets on the floors. We had coal on the fire and we didn’t lock the doors. Our children arrived, no pill in those days. And we brought them up without any State aid. They were safe going out and played in the park. And old folk could go out for a walk in the dark. No Valium, no drugs and no LSD. We cured most of our ills with a good cup of tea. No vandals, no muggings, there was nothing to rob. We felt we were rich with a couple of bob. People were happy in those far off days. Kinder and caring in so many ways.

Milkman and paperboy would whistle and sing. A night at the pictures was our own mad fling. We all get our share of trouble and strife. We just have to face it, that’s the pattern of life. Now I’m alone I look back through the years. I don’t think of the bad times, the trouble and tears. I remember the blessings, our home and our Love. And that we shared them together, I thank God above.

Making Men Happy 10 things to make men happy in a relationship! 1. Praise. Men adore women who shower them with adulation. Praise is like candy – good for everyone. 2. Nagging. Men hate it. Tell them once what you want. You have a 50-50 chance it will be done. Tell them more than that within a 24-hour period and it's called nagging. Complain to your mother. Give him dirty looks. Close the kitchen and the bedroom. But whatever you do, don't nag. 3. Crying. Men really hate it. They have no defense. You finally get him to have a serious talk and you start crying because you don't like how it's going. Well, girlfriend, you killed that one. Not only is the discussion over, but you put him in a lose-lose situation. If he ignores your emotions, he's insensitive. Finish the talk, then cry to the dog. Or a friend. 4. Where is this relationship going? Really? You have eyes; use them. It's obvious. You just don't want to face it, so you're making him do the dirty work and spit it out. Take the cue. Do what you have to do. If he doesn't like it, he'll fight to get you back. 5. Food. His mother knew the way to his heart. And if she didn't, here's your opportunity. Men love to eat. And be served. If you like to cook, you lucked out on this one. If you don't, you're a dummy if you can't find takeout that will look, taste and smell like homemade. 6. Action Jacksons. Men either love to be on the move or watch other men move, mostly on TV or at a stadium. Either way, they need it. And they'll love you for it if you don't complain about it. He has high respect for a woman who knows the importance of giving him space when he needs it. 7. Sex. Psst. It's good for both of you. It keeps the connection and relieves stress and tension. He'll be putty in your hands. Cook a meal for him after and he'll be so happy he might even cry. 8. Relinquish the need for control. Worse than anything, a man hates when a woman is constantly trying to control every situation. It's emasculating and it's degrading, both to you and him. You're not very fun or pretty when you're controlling. Until you get a grip on your

fears or whatever is making you work this ugly trait, your relationship will suffer. Let him be the man. You're with him for a reason. He's capable. Let him prove it. He'll love you for it. 9. The power of touch. Touch heals. It's the unspoken word of forgiveness, love, warmth and compassion. We all can use a little. Men crave it. It makes them closer to you and they will touch back. 10. Love. And more love. Hug him. Text him. Laugh with him. Leave love notes in the bathroom or in his car. You'll get it back in spades. It's contagious and it keeps the special spark glowing bright. !

Asbestos - Have You Been In Contact?

In this edition, I thought I would look at a number of questions that often arise and that make people worried about the possibility of making a claim. My message is, if in doubt ask! I CANNOT REMEMBER WhERE I WORKED OR ThE COMPANY I WORKED FOR NO LONGER EXISTS. It is not unusual for companies that traded in the 1960’s, for example, to have long since stopped trading. With investigations I can trace insurers who provided cover for these companies and they are obliged to deal with the claims. Even if you are hazy about the exact name of a company or your period of employment with them, I can obtain your work history from HM Revenue & Customs and this provides confirmation of who you worked for all those years ago. I hAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITh AN ASBESTOS CONDITION BUT I DID NOT WORK WITh ASBESTOS. I always like to meet my clients and it is surprising how often, when you start talking about a persons work history, what they remember. Often, it turns out that even if a person did not actually work with asbestos, they worked alongside people who did and therefore came into contact with dust. Another possibility, and a particularly sad one in my experience, is a wife who comes into contact with asbestos from her husband’s work clothes. A RELATIVE hAS DIED FROM AN ASBESTOS RELATED CONDITION BEFORE MAKING A CLAIM It is not widely known that claims can be made even though the person affected has died (provided the claim is made within 3 years of death). The claim is made on behalf of the persons estate. DIAGNOSING AN ASBESTOS RELATED CONDITION There are a number of conditions that can be caused by exposure to asbestos, including lung cancer. The main issue is whether the breathing difficulties can be attributed to

asbestos. This is the point we have to prove in all respiratory disease cases, not just asbestos related but also, for example, silicosis – medical evidence is required to prove a link. Claims for breathing problems caused by exposure to asbestos can be complex but the quicker the claim is started the quicker these issues can be dealt with. So, if you are concerned about your particular situation or have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. I am happy to talk to you free of charge. I can be contacted on 00 44 1244 340560 at info@woodslaw.co.uk or alternatively you can visit my website at www.woodslaw.co.uk

Life’s Facts Life lessons written by a "90-Year-Old"

life, don't take no for an answer.

Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

Burn the candles; use the nice sheets; wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

When in doubt, just take the next small step. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. Pay off your credit cards every month. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. It's OK to let your children see you cry. Don't compare your life to others'. You have no idea what their journey is all about. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. When it comes to going after what you love in

Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. No one is in charge of your happiness except you. What other people think of you is none of your business. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends will. Stay in touch. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.

Linea Directa OEM PARTS EXCLUSIVELY USED IN NATIONAL REPAIR NETWORK OEM PARTS OEM parts are Original Equipment Manufactured parts as made by your car’s manufacturer.

At the time of publishing this article, no other insurance company in Spain guarantees the exclusive use of OEM parts in their repairer network. Some insurance companies rely on after market parts and used parts to keep the repair costs to a minimum, only paying for OEM parts if no

other parts are available. After-market parts are parts made by a company other than your vehicle’s manufacturer. They are new and the spec should be very close to the original specs. However, some minor fitting adjustments maybe required by the body shop. Used parts come from the scrap yard. Cars involved in accidents, engine trouble or age, means that scrapped cars will have some working parts, which can be resold. The used parts are usually OEM parts.

Kestrel Counselling Life at times can be tough and regularly throws us a curve ball. Most times we can handle these blips, with the support of family and friends. However, sometimes these blips in the road seem overwhelming. According to the Mind website 1 in 4 people in the UK will suffer from depression each year. I personally do not believe that anti-depressants are helpful in the long run. They remove the symptoms but not the underlying causes. For me it is like treating a broken leg with pain killers – it takes away the pain, but does not actually heal the broken bone. In order to recover from depression I believe it is important to examine what is causing the depression. For many people it can be hard to admit that they have a problem. They feel they should ‘get over it’ or ‘pull themselves together’. The reality is that many people need help at some time in their lives, and having the courage to ask for it is a first huge step.

This can be even harder for a parent to ask for help on behalf of their children. Nearly 80,000 children in the UK suffer from depression and 1 in 4 young people have had suicidal thoughts. Counsellors offer a safe, confidential space for clients to explore their feelings, helping clients to find ways to make changes that feel comfortable to the client. We do not give advice, as we do not have to live with the consequences of a decision made. It is for the client to decide what is right for them. I have worked with clients of every age group from 5 years old, teenagers and young people and adults, to help them explore their feelings. I work in different ways including play therapy, art therapy etc, working with the client to make changes in their lives. For further information please see main advert below.

Random Jokes Three doctors are out geese-hunting. A gaggle flies over and the oncologist raises and then lowers his gun. "I better conduct an MRI first to determine if those were really geese." Some more geese fly by & the endocrinologist raises his gun and then lowers it. "I'll need some bloodwork to conduct an A1C and determine what those birds were first." Some more geese fly over.

The trauma doc raises his shotgun and blows them out of the sky. "What were those things, anyway?" he asks.

Crescent Bacon Breakfast Ring Can you believe it!!! The Festive season has arrived. Time to relax and enjoy with friends and family. How about this easy Christmas breakfast recipe to get your day started. Yummy!!!!!

Ingredients 1 can Pilsbury crescents (8 in a can) 8 Slices of cooked bacon 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped 5 eggs 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated Salt and pepper to taste 1 egg for egg wash (optional) Preheat oven to 375F degrees In a bowl beat the eggs and add the chopped peppers to it and stir. Season with salt and pepper. Cook the eggs in a skillet so they’re scrambled. Layer the crescent on a parchment pepper, like a star as shown in the picture.

On each crescent lay a piece of bacon. Add half of the cheese around the ring. Add the scrambled eggs around the ring and top with the remainder of the cheese. Fold the crescents over. You may now brush with the egg wash if you prefer, I did because it gives the ring a nice golden colour. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the crescents are cooked and golden brown.

Enjoy & Merry Christmas x

X-Factor Simon Cowell’s best insults 1."If you had lived 2,000 years ago and sung like that, I think they would have stoned you." 2. "Holly, your mouth is far too big when you sing. I mean, it was like looking into a cave. I've never seen anything so huge in my life." 3. "I don't know what cats being squashed sound like in Lithuania, but I now have a pretty good idea." 4. "You're probably the most disillusioned group of people we've ever had in this competition. And that's the truth. I think the group is horrendous, you have absolutely zero edge, no originality, I think individually you're weak, I think as a group you're even worse, absolutely zero chance you guys will ever, ever, ever have a successful career." 5. "I'm tempted to ask if you sang that the night before your wife left you." 6. "Last year I described someone as being the worst singer in

America. I think you're the worst singer in the world." 7. "It was a bit like ordering a hamburger, and only getting the bun." 8. "There's as much chance as you being a pop star or a rock star as me flying to the moon tomorrow morning for breakfast." 9. "You actually sing like a train going off the rails. You sort of start off in tune and then it goes completely off. And very, very fast." 10. "Do you have a singing teacher? Get a lawyer and sue her." 11. "If your lifeguard duties were as good as your singing, a lot of people would be drowning."

Christmas Food Around The World Not long now until Christmas! Here is what is traditionally eaten around the world In Brazil they eat turkey on Christmas Eve, but not in the traditional North American style. Along with turkey, they serve rice, Brazil nuts, and a variety of fruit. Germans often serve fruity Stollen cake, along with mulled wine called Gluehwein. Stollen is traditionally baked to have a hump, symbolizing the humps of the camels that carried the wise men to see Jesus.

In Ethiopia, locals eat a "doro wat," a chicken stew served with flat bread. Forget the forks and knives because like much Ethiopian cuisine, you eat this with your hands. It's summer during Christmas in South Africa, so locals head to the Braai, an African grill, to cook up lamb, turkey, and pork. We've all heard of "figgy pudding," and yes in the United Kingdom, they actually eat it. Better still, they cover their Christmas

Many Bulgarians fast before Christmas, so on Christmas they nosh on stuffed vegetables, soups, and cakes. In Fiji, locals dine on banana leaf-wrapped fish, stuffed chicken, and pork made with a "Lovo," an earth oven made with heavy stones, like the one seen below.

pudding with brandy and set it on fire! It's summer in Australia, too, so residents have a Christmas barbeque, cooking turkey and lamb. They also eat grilled prawns, like the ones below, in a longstanding tradition called "shrimp on the barbie." Christians in India celebrate the holiday by eating traditional Biryani, or curry, dishes. To end the meal, they often eat kheer, a sweet and milky pudding.

Italians celebrate Christmas by making a meal they call the "Feast of Seven Fishes," which features many different seafood dishes, like calamari, cod, anchovies, and clam linguine. France also serves seafood for Christmas, during the traditional Le Réveillon celebration. Meals usually feature lobster, oysters, and foie gras. In Sweden, a rice pudding, or Risgrynsgröt, is served during Christmas time. One of the bowls will have an almond submerged in its center, and the lucky one who gets the almond receives good luck for the rest of the year.

Promptly at 6pm every Christmas Eve, Icelandic people sit down to a massive meal of cooked meats, including reindeer meat, seen below. The Portuguese are famous for their dried and salted cod, and Christmas wouldn't be complete without a traditional plate of the fish, along with cabbage, eggs, and potatoes, also boiled. People in the United States enjoy eggnog during the holiday months, some more than others. Believe it or not, on Christmas, Japanese residents flock to KFC to dine on tasty fried chicken and all the fixings.

Now Opened - Oak Land Furniture In San Pedro Oak Land Furniture have opened In San Pedro near Marbella, next door to the Maxi Dia supermarket, just across the road from the Audi dealership Those of you who may have visited the UK at some stage may have seen the 74 stores or seen the oak furniture advertising on the British TV Channels, for those of you who have not, Oak Land Furniture are the market leaders in real solid oak furniture. The company oak land furniture have now opened in Spain due to the huge demand for their quality solid oak products that are built to last a lifetime. Oak Land Furniture offer over 20 different collections of bedroom,dining and occasional furniture as well a large choice of both leather and fabric sofas too, which are all manufactured with hard wood frames. The reclining sofas are all manufactured with top quality German motors!

We called to the store today to interview Managing Director Steve Day who now himself resides in Spain. All the products are produced in 100% solid oak, including all the drawer bases and backs to all the units as well as all the drawers being fully dovetail jointed too. Steve explained that materials such as plywood or veneer are ever used at anytime and only produced from 100% North American white oak. We asked Steve why Spain? Steve informed us that a lot of customers were going into the British stores and asking for delivery to Spain, as the UK Company doesn't deliver to Spain, customers were ordering and shipping themselves to Spain at a heavy cost, so clearly there was a market for 100% solid oak furniture in Spain and also noticable was the lack of quality furniture. It was all decided Spain was a good base to reach both France and Portugal too, to which they also deliver.

Now Opened - Oak Land Furniture In San Pedro Oak Land Furniture through it's website (www.oaklandfurniturespain.com) covers the whole of 3 countries with it's delivery network service. Steve took us for a full tour around the store explaining all the different designs from very traditional country designs to very modern designs and explaining all the different finishes from natural oak, rustic oak through to the lovely white washed french finish as well as the brushed oak finishes. The ranges and finishes are just beautiful and the quality is simply superb, and we were very impressed. On top of this, we discovered the company deliver all over Spain free of charge. Steve explained that he likes to design and build furniture that's basically built to last a lifetime and that comes fully ready assembled too, straight out the box ready for use!

We asked Steve how business has been since opening and had he noticed any differences to the UK? Business has been brisk, already two 40 foot containers have been shipped with customers orders and another will be shipping next week from the Swindon warehouse where we keep the majority of furniture in stock. Yes it's been an education opening in Spain due to the relaxed lifestyle, trading patterns are totally different and something I must admit wasn't prepared for, In the UK customers for instance on a Saturday and Sunday pour through the doors, here we are lucky too see anyone on a Saturday before 12, and of course can't open on a Sunday! More business is done through the week and that's morning and late afternoons/evenings. A totally different trading pattern but I'm getting used to it! The store is now fully open 6 days a week and Steve and his Store Manager Nik look forward to seeing you soon. See main advert on page 5

Christmas Jokes A sign of the times As a little girl climbed onto Santa's lap, Santa asked the usual, "And what would you like for Christmas?" The child stared at him open mouthed and horrified for a minute, then gasped: "Didn't you get my E-mail?" -----------------------------------------------------------At Grandma’s Two young boys were spending the night at their grandparents. At bedtime, the two boys

knelt beside their beds to say their prayers when the youngest one began praying at the top of his lungs. "I PRAY FOR A NEW BICYCLE... I PRAY FOR A NEW NINTENDO... I PRAY FOR A NEW VCR..." His older brother leaned over and nudged the younger brother and said, "Why are you shouting your prayers? God isn't deaf." To which the little brother replied, "No, but Grandma is!"

Mum’s Request Of Santa Dear Santa, I've been a good mum all year. I've fed, cleaned, and cuddled my two children on demand, visited the doctor's office more than my doctor, sold 62 cases of candy bars to raise money to plant a shade tree on the school playground, and figured out how to attach nine patches onto my daughter's Girl Scout sash with staples and a glue gun. I was hoping you could spread my list out over several Christmases, since I had to write this letter with my son's red crayon on the back of a receipt in the laundry room between cycles, and who knows when I'll find anymore free time in the next 18 years. Here are my Christmas wishes: I'd like a pair of legs that don't ache after a day of chasing kids (in any colour, except purple, which I already have) and arms that don't flap in the breeze, but are strong enough to carry a screaming toddler out of the candy aisle in the grocery store. I'd also like a waist, since I lost mine somewhere in the seventh month of my last pregnancy. If you're hauling big ticket items this year, I'd like a car with fingerprint resistant windows and a radio that only plays adult music; a television that doesn't broadcast any programs containing talking animals; and a refrigerator with a secret compartment behind where I can hide to talk on the phone. On the practical side, I could use a talking daughter doll that says, "Yes, Mummy" to boost my parental confidence, along with one potty-trained toddler, two kids who don't fight, and three pairs of jeans that will zip all the way up without the use of power tools. I could also use a recording of Tibetan monks chanting, "Don't eat in the living room" and "Take your hands off your brother," because my voice seems to be just out of my children's hearing range and can only be heard by the dog. And please don't forget the Playdoh Travel Pack, the stocking stuffer this year for

mothers of preschoolers. It comes in three fluorescent colours and is guaranteed to crumble on any carpet making the In-laws' house seem just like mine. If it's too late to find any of these products, I'd settle for enough time to brush my teeth and comb my hair in the same morning, or the luxury of eating food warmer than room temperature without it being served in a Styrofoam container. If you don't mind, I could also use a few Christmas miracles to brighten the holiday season. Would it be too much trouble to declare ketchup a vegetable? It will clear my conscience immensely. It would be helpful if you could coerce my children to help around the house without demanding payment as if they were the bosses of an organised crime family; or if my toddler didn't look so cute sneaking downstairs to eat contraband ice cream in his pajamas at midnight. Well, Santa, the buzzer on the dryer is ringing and my son saw my feet under the laundry room door. I think he wants his crayon back. Have a safe trip and remember to leave your wet boots by the chimney and come in and dry off by the fire so you don't catch cold. Help yourself to cookies on the table, but don't eat too many or leave crumbs on the carpet. Yours Always, Mum

g n i z fe a i m L A ine The rtle Tu en Mar Gre

The Green Turtle extends throughout tropical and subtropical seas around the world, with two distinct populations in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Found in tropical and temperate reefs. The green turtle is a large sea turtle belonging to the family Cheloniidae. Their common name derives from the green fat underneath their shell. Adult green turtles are known to grow to 1.5m long. While individuals have been caught that reached weights of up to 315 kilograms, the average weight of mature individuals is around 200 kilograms. The largest Chelonia mydas ever recorded weighed 395 kilograms. habitat: The adults are commonly found in shallow lagoons, feeding mostly on various

species of seagrass. Ecology: They are mostly herbivorous. Like other sea turtles, green turtles are known to migrate long distances between their feeding grounds and the beaches they hatched from. Many islands worldwide have been called Turtle Islands primarily for the large amounts of green turtles that nest on their beaches each year. Female turtles dredge themselves onto beaches and lay eggs in nests that they dig during the night. After a period of time, hatchlings emerge from the nests and head for the water. Those that survive grow to maturity and live to a maximum of eighty years.

Born as the youngest of four brothers in the town of Consett, Atkinson was brought up Anglican by his parents Eric and Ella May. While he used to be a class clown when he was young, by the time he got into his pre-teens he developed self-consciousness and became rather quiet and withdrawn. When attending Durham Choristers School, Atkinson was Tony Blair's schoolmate. It was the BBC comedy sketch show ‘Not the Nine O´Clock News’ that made him famous. He then went on to get the lead role in The Black Adder, which he also co-wrote with Richard Curtis. One of Atkinson´s greatest passions are cars. Once he even said that one of the best moments of his life, aside from personal relationships, was to get a Class 1 license to drive a lorry (semi-truck). He is also a proud owner of an impressive collection of fast cars including Aston Martin, Honda, Audi and even MC Laren F1. Naturally, cars have played an important role in his film career as well. The scene with Mr. Bean driving his mini from a chair on the roof is known all over the world. He was one of the guests at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton as well as the one of Prince Charles and Camilla. For most of his life, he has suffered from a mild stammer, which might be also why he has been known as very taciturn in his private

life, particularly disliking interviews. In fact, Mr. Bean also hardly ever speaks. In 1990, Atkinson married Sunetra Sastry. They have two children – Lily and Benjamin. In February 2014, though, he filed for divorce from Sastry. During his prolific film career, the actor earned significant money. His current wealth is estimated be about £85 million (approximately 130 million dollars). In 2001 while on a holiday trip to Kenya, the plane he and his family were in, started to go down after the pilot had passed out. Atkinson managed to take control of the plane before the pilot woke up. The plane landed safely. Atkinson has been so protective of his family´s privacy that not even his closest friends knew Sastry was pregnant until the kids were born. Originally, the name of his most famous role, Mr. Bean, was Mr. White. It was later changed to Mr. Cauliflower but finally ended up Mr. Bean.

Smart Currency - Monthly Update STILL A GOOD TIME TO BUY! For those property hunters who have been seriously considering owning their dream holiday home in the sun, and can afford to it's a great time to get actively hunting for that ideal property. Here's some real reasons why..... and it's 'back to basics' 1. Agents are working harder for their buyers today, as there are less dreamers in the marketplace. But, tell them exactly what you want and stick to it. It easier for them as well. 2. Vendors who 'need' to sell will be more open to negotiate, as they are seeing less viewings and the rate is in their favour. 3. The Spanish property market has stabilized, and so has the economy, despite political wobbles. 4. Leisure and living costs are almost half that of northern Europe- shopping, eating out, etc. 5. Mortgage deals at circa 2 percent if you

wish to finance the property and LTV as high as 70 percent. 6. Great rental potential and returns, especially during the summer months to holiday makers. Tourism in Spain is rising year on year. 7. THE WEATHER of course!! 8. Easily accessable- frequency of flights into Malaga is second to none and you have Gibraltar as well. In the winter a return can be under â‚Ź100 (and by sea to Bilbao with your car, pets and goodies) From a currency perspective and being a U.K. buyer, Sterling is still subject to fluctuation, and weak. However, keep reminding yourself of the reasons for coming to Spain and use your property agents to negotiate the best deal for you. Smart Currency Exchange will get the best exchange rate to match!

Love & Marraige, Go Together Like Turkey & Stuffing `Tis the Season to be jolly´… Yes! Christmas is just around the corner, and before I know it, my duties of a married woman are going to be on point! The prepping of Christmas Dinner, the consistency in the flow of all things alcoholic, the laughter, cheer and keeping a handful of dogs at bay whilst the turkey´s cooking, and Simon of course…. Ever the wonderful and helpful husband, who´s a catch at washing up, by has the sneakiest fingers in town and will pinch food from right underneath you. A husband that can easily if not functioning correctly on a full stomach will confuse a frying pan and a saucepan and unless the lettuce is round and of an “iceberg” sort, he simply gets lost in the fridge! 3 month´s already into married life, and we´ve settled quite well… one of our spare bedroom´s had turned into a rather over-crowded storage space, and with all the wedding boxes taking up the majority, we spent our free weekends doing the BIG CLEAN housework!! The amount of C*#p we´ve accumulated in a 1 year period was shocking! The ‘Big Clean’ hit us hard and we decided that fatal Saturday morning, we were sweeping the whole house through, cupboards as well… Come Saturday evening, and we´re just half way through, we realized that although we´re living in a 3 bed, we had no bed space this moment in time, thanks to the “Big Clean” so we “camped” out…on the sofa! I say sofa lightly, as it was more, Simon have the sofa with the Dog of course, and I had the most horrendous camping mattress, on the floor! Although still we find ourselves, with no wedding photos at this time, sorting through the endless boxes brought back the best memories, for now. With that over, all the talk we here now is Christmas, and if I keep saying to myself one more time, “I´ll do it tomorrow”, nobody will be having turkey, let alone presents to open! Simon´s list isn´t the smallest and it seems at 32 he´s not settling for the socks and pj

presents! He´s clearly sat with the newest photography brochure and like you did with the Argos catalogue as a kid, he´s circled the entire book! When I first met Simon, I thought it would be great to have a partner who did photography… just think of the awesome photos you´d finally have…NOPE, I have a camera with me 24/7 wherever I go, I can be taking a wee, and he´s stood in the door talking photos, sits me on a chair while I´m watching Eastenders and snaps away to try a new technique he´s read about.. it´s like living a life of fame, without the money and I can still just get away with a no makeup day in the house and not be judged by thousands! Either way, this year I have to out-do Simon´s gift to me! His gifts are not only thoughtful, but have always taken time to plan and put together! We´re now closer to Christmas than we were last month…But I think I´ve got it in the bag!! MERRY ChRISTMAS FROM ThE DUGGANS!!!!!!!!

Christmas Presents NOT To Buy Your Man 1. Shower gel pack/toiletries Smell is personal to men. The same way they don't want their mum buying their underwear, they don't want their girlfriend buying their shower gel.

is a gift for him, not for you. A couple's spa seems like something you should get yourself and invite him along for that company you always want. But do not make this his one and only present.

2. Socks/Underpants He can buy his own underpants and socks, but he also doesn't like to think of you going into a store and telling the sales person what size pack he needs.

9. Beard oil Yet again, this is a gift for you, not for him. He doesn't care how his beard feels. In fact, he likes it scruffy and rough. He's grown a beard to display that he doesn't need all those frilly products.

3. That shirt you think he'll look good in Your boyfriend can't choose clothes for you anymore than you can for him, because when it comes to buying your significant other clothing, it's less about what they like, and more about what you like. Before long, he'll be dressed like the Ralph Lauren model you've had a crush on since last year's catalogue.

10. Plane tickets to visit your family There's a reason he hasn't bought them yet. Getting him tickets for anything that he hasn't suggested is just a costly recipe for disaster. It means using his vacation days, taking away from his valuable weekends and investing in something that can't be returned.

4. A cozy bathrobe Unless he's staying at The Ritz or trying to be Hugh Hefner, your boyfriend isn't going to wear a robe. Many men don't always appreciate the art of "being cozy." For them, they'd much rather have a coat they can wear outside of the house. 5. That gimmick gift he'll only use once A razor that smells like bacon, an electric toothbrush that sounds like an train engine, and a 'knit your own beard' kit are all fun for the moment, but totally unusable for the long haul. While he'll appreciate your comedic touch, he won't appreciate the fact that it's been sitting in the corner of his room all year. 6. Donation to a charity Of course he wants to seem like a generous and giving guy, but on the one time of year he's expecting presents, he's not trying to give them away. 7. Gift card to a store he'll never shop in To him, you're taking money he could use any place and turning it into money he can only use one place. 8. A couple's spa day This is like him giving you tickets to see his favorite band play. This

11. Tech things you know nothing about Just give him a gift card. It'll save him the hassle of having to return it in 6 months when the newest HD version comes out. 12. homemade coupons A free massage ticket is cute, but definitely cheap. You're his girlfriend, doesn't that mean free massages? If you're writing coupons for hugs and kisses, maybe you should look at spending more time actually giving them, instead of creating currency for them. 13. Subscriptions to anything The thing about subscription packages is they add pressure and no guy likes pressure. If he feels like he needs to do something, he's going to resent it.

some cases we prefer to study the documents after this initial consultation and provide a reasoned opinion in writing after the meeting.

Consultations can be in person or in writing. For more information, contact us on info@decottalaw.net or telephone 952 527014

For example, you may have a dispute with a neighbour about the boundaries of your land. In some of these cases the catastral or rateable area from the Catastro might be substantially different from the surface area of the plot as described in your deeds. Therefore, the lawyer will need to review both documents and any local planning rules to see if the situation can be resolved. In monetary and debt claims we also need to review the paperwork. Unfortunately, in some cases pursing a debt can be costly and not effective if the debtor has no funds or assets in Spain. We act for a number of English law firms and Trustees in bankruptcy and always advise commencing a matter with a property and company search, as it is not advisable to commence a debt action against a “man of straw�. The same will apply to your small business debt or a personal debt where the person or company who owes the money has no capacity to repay.

Extreme Weather - 2016 1) January featured not one, but two oddities in the tropics. First, Hurricane Pali became the earliest hurricane on record in the central Pacific basin on January 11th, peaking as a Category 2 on January 12th. Pali was also just the third January storm dating to 1949 in the central Pacific. About the same time, Subtropical Storm Alex formed in the northeast Atlantic Ocean on January 13th. Alex then fully acquired tropical characteristics and became a hurricane on January 14th, making it just the second hurricane on record to form during the month of January in the Atlantic.

2) This viral photo shows a car that became encrusted in ice after it was parked for several hours outside a restaurant 10th while the driver was watching NFL postseason games. Strong winds and much colder temperatures swept in with an arctic cold front during that time, allowing water from Lake Erie to spray locations along the lakeshore, leading to the build up of ice on the car and other surfaces. 3) No state was hit harder by deadly flooding in the first half of 2016 than Texas. At least 29 people were killed due to floodwaters in the state this year. This follows

on the heels of a deadly 2015 where 48 people lost their lives in the state due to flooding. The north and west sides of the Houston metro area were swamped with 10-20 inches of rain late April 17th into April 18th, resulting in disastrous flooding that left eight people dead. Later that month, six people were killed by a separate flood event in Palestine. Six more deaths occurred in the last few days of May 2016 from flooding in central and southeast Texas, according to the Associated Press. This was followed by the deaths of nine Fort Hood soldiers that were killed when their truck was washed away on June 2nd, 2016.

4) Unprecedented and deadly heat affected parts of south-central and southeast Asia this spring. The high temperature reached 123.8 degrees Fahrenheit (51 degrees Celsius) in Phalodi, India, on May 19th. This topped India's previous all-time record high for any calendar day of 123.1 degrees Fahrenheit (50.6 degrees Celsius) set in Pachpadra on May 25th, 1886, according to weather records from Maximiliano Herrera. India wasn't alone in setting all-time national heat records this spring. Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and the Republic of Maldives also saw unprecedented heat.

Random Jokes :) A boy is selling fish on a corner. To get his customers' attention, he is yelling, "Dam fish for sale! Get your dam fish here!" A pastor hears this and asks, "Why are you calling them 'dam fish.'" The boy responds, "Because I caught these fish at the local dam." The pastor buys a couple fish, takes them home to his wife, and asks her to cook the dam fish. The wife responds surprised, "I didn't know it was acceptable for a preacher to speak that way." He explains to her why they are dam fish. Later at the dinner table, he asks his son to pass the dam fish. He responds, "That's the spirit, Dad! Now pass the f****** potatoes!" ------------------------------------------------------------An American tourist walks out of a Mexican train station when he notices he isn't wearing his watch. A Mexican man is resting under a sombrero under a nearby tree. The American approaches the Mexican and asks, "Excuse me, do you know what time is?" The Mexican looks at the donkey, grabs its balls, and replies, "4:30." The American asks, "How do you know that?" The Mexican replies, "Well you get a handful of the donkeys balls and lift them up so you can see that clock across the street."

) : a h a Jokes h The Indians asked their Chief in Autumn if the Winter was going to be cold or not. Not really knowing an answer, the chief replies that the Winter was going to be cold with lots of snow and that the members of the village were to collect wood to be prepared. Being a good leader, he then went to the next phone booth and called the National Weather Service and asked, "Is this winter to be cold?" The man on the phone responded, "This Winter is going to be quite cold indeed." So the Chief went back to speed up his people to collect even more wood to be prepared. A week later he called the National Weather Service again, "Is it going to be a very cold winter?" "Yes", the man replied, "it's going to be a very cold Winter." So the Chief goes back to his people and orders them to go and find every scrap of wood they can find. Two weeks later he calls the National Weather Service again: "Are you absolutely sure that the Winter is going to be very cold?" "Absolutely," the man replies, "the Indians are collecting wood like crazy!" -----------------------------------------------------------My husband and I purchased an old home in Northern New York State from two elderly sisters. Winter was fast approaching and the years first snow came early and I was concerned about the house's lack of insulation. "If they could live here all those years, so can we!" my husband confidently declared. One November night the temperature plunged to below zero, and we woke up to find interior walls covered with frost. My husband called the sisters to ask how they had kept the house warm. After a rather brief conversation, he hung up. "For the past 30 years," he muttered, "they've gone to Florida for the winter." -----------------------------------------------------------Why did Santa's helper see the doctor?
