m Fro Ed... the Spring time is now upon us, and I’m wondering what happened to winter this year, which seemed to pass without much trace. April is the month of Easter, which means fluffy bunnies, cute chickens, painted eggs, and of course plenty of yummy chocolate. It’s also the month of Semana Santa, or Holy Week, where religious processions take to the streets to commemorate the last week of Jesus’ life. So there’s a lot going on in April, and usually the shine shines even brighter so we’ll all feel happier as a result. A lot of people who knew me from The Sentinella ask me what I’ve been doing for the last couple of years. Aside from my new writing and publishing business called The Word Queen, I’ve been very busy putting together a book which is finally due to launch in September this year! It’s called The Light and it’s designed to empower people to find their own Light within, and then shine that Light over everything they do and everyone they meet in order to make the world a brighter place for us all. I’ll write more specific details about it a little closer to the launch date, but I’m already very excited as there are 22 contributors, all luminaries in the mind body spirit arena. It has also received endorsements from a number of internationally bestselling authors, such as Jack Canfield, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul, John Grey of the Mars Venus series, Lisa Nichols, featured teacher in the movie and book The Secret, and Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements..

What’s even more exciting is the fact that 100 per cent of the net profits from sales of The Light are being donated to eight charities which do amazing work in the world. My goal is to sell at least one million copies of The Light, which will raise around seven million dollars for the chosen charities, all of which will be announced soon.

Strange News

And you can help us reach this goal by becoming actively involved in our Spread the Light Campaign, details coming in following editions of The Sentinella.

Sharp Sheep Competitive sheep shearers are calling for their sport to be accepted as an Olympic event. It comes as the annual Golden Shears world championships was held in Masterton, New Zealand. The event was won by Scotsman Gavin Mutch, 32, who sheared 20 sheep in 19 minutes 12 seconds.

Right now I’m busy ordering galley copies of The Light to send to the media, putting together a website, finalising the edits to a short promotional video, plus doing what feels like another 101 tasks in order to get The Light out there to the world. Here’s a preview of the cover for all who are interested: And I’m already putting together the second Light book in the series featuring people’s true stories of The Light. If you have an amazing story from the Light, including a transformational spiritual experience, an angelic encounter, or a major synchronicity, then please send me an email to info@thewordqueen.com If you’re on Facebook keep up-to-date on all the news about The Light by going to www.facebook.com/spreadthelightcampaign Love & LIGHT to everyone, and Happy Easter.

Twin Toughs Two Romanian brothers - aged seven and five - might be the strongest children in the world. Giuliano and Claudiu Stroe, from Galati, both started lifting weights aged just two, reports The Mirror. Trained by their father Iulian, the pair are capable of undertaking gruelling lifting routines with ease. Some critics have questioned whether the children are too young to undertake such a tough training regime. But videos of their training work-outs have notched up hundreds of thousands of hits online.

Techno Tunes Engineers have programmed tiny flying robots to play the James Bond theme tune on musical instruments. The quadrobots were pre-programmed to hit the correct note at the correct time to give an accurate rendition of the movie music. A video of the performance, premiered at the TED2012 Conference in California, shows them playing the tune on a keyboard, drums, maracas, a cymbal and a guitar. The video was made by engineers at Penn's School of Engineering and Applied Science in America, home to some of the most innovative robotics research on the planet.

How To Stay Young Somthing we would all like to know! 1. Throw out non-essential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay 'them.' 2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. 3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. 'An idle mind is the devil's workshop.' And the devil's name is Alzheimer's. 4. Enjoy the simple things. 5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. 6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive. 7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help. 9. Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is. 10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity. AND ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

De Cotta - New Employment Law Update on the new Employment Law reforms by Maria Corder, Solicitor with local law firm De Cotta Law The new reforms, although largely unpopular with workers, will be welcomed by employers. The generous payment scheme on dismissal which Spain had was often a major obstacle for businesses in the current economic climate as the option of dismissing an employee in an attempt to reduce costs could be an expensive one. The high severance payments could also have been seen as a deterrent to hiring and the aim of the new reforms, which include the reduction of the severance payment, is said to be to increase employment. As part of the reforms, which came into effect on 13th February 2012, an employer will now be able to dismiss an employee by paying 33

day´s salary for each year worked instead of the current 45 days, or just 20 days if there are profit losses over a 9 month period. In Spain the Trade Unions have a great deal of power and control over the contracts and pay packages employers can offer through the use of collective bargaining agreements. However, under the new changes businesses in Spain, in situations where for example they are facing economic hardship, will be able to withdraw from such agreements and have increased freedom as a result in relation to matters such as working hours, shift work, remuneration, working systems and performance. More specifically, businesses will also be permitted in such circumstances to suspend a worker´s contract or reduce their hours. The changes also provide that absences of 20% over 2 months, or 25% over 4 months, can amount to a reason for dismissal. On the hiring side, organisations are incentivised by the new reforms to hire employees under 30 and those unemployed for a long period, by the provision of quite substantial tax benefits. Hiring should now be more attractive also because employers with less than 50 employees can now employ workers under an indefinite contract which allows for a trial period of a year. Additionally of benefit to employees, employers are obliged to offer training to employees with more than one year´s service. Although the dismissal of an employee may now be considered less expensive and less problematic, employers can face legal action if they do not follow the correct procedures or do not fall within the circumstances provided by the legislation. For advice on employment law generally please contact Maria Corder at De Cotta Law on 952 527 014 or nerja@decottalaw.net

George Constanza’s...

Finding A Job

....Words of wisdom!

How I ended up in journalism...

“The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A death. What’s that, a bonus?!? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you go live in an old age home. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, then, when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day. You work forty years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You drink alcohol, you party, and you get ready for High School. You go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back, you spend your last 9 months floating with luxuries like central heating, spa, room service on tap, then you finish off as an orgasm!! Amen”.

My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned: couldn't concentrate. Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe. After that I tried to be a tailor, but it was only so-so. Next I tried working in a muffler factory but that was exhausting. Then I tried to be a chef--figured it would add a little spice to my life, but I just didn't have the thyme. Finally, I attempted to be a deli worker, but anyway I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard. My best job was being a musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy. I tried fishing, but discovered that I couldn't live on my net income. Thought about becoming a witch, so I tried that for a spell. I managed to get a good job working for a pool maintenance company, but the work was just too draining. Next, I found being an electrician interesting, but the work was shocking. After many years of trying to find steady work I finally got a job as a historian until I realised there was no future in it. My last job was working at Starbucks, but it was always the same old grind.

eyeliner and green eyeshades are still used. You should eat raw green foods for good health. Friday is the day of green. Green jade is a sacred stone of Asia.

Sometimes green denotes lack of experience; for example, a 'greenhorn' is a novice. In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope. The word green comes from the Old English word grēne, earlier grœni. The word is closely related to the Old English verb growan, "to grow."

Green, as opposed to red, means safety; it is the colour of free passage in road traffic.

Green is the colour of nature, fertility and life.

Dark green is associated with ambition, greed, and jealousy.

Grass green is the most restful colour.

Olive green is the traditional colour of peace.

Green symbolises self-respect and well-being.

Green occupies more space in the spectrum visible to the human eye and is second only to blue as a favorite colour.

Green is the colour of balance. It also means learning, growth and harmony. Green is favoured by well-balanced people. It symbolises master the and healer the life force, and often repr e s e n t s money. It was believed green was healing for the eyes; Egyptians wore green

Green is the pervasive color in the natural world that is an ideal backdrop in interior design because we are so used to seeing it everywhere. In several religions, green is the colour associated with resurrection and regeneration. As the emblematic colour of Iregreen land, the represents vast green hillside as well as Irepatron land's saint, St, Patrick.

The Rules Of Chocolate Chocolate rules that must be obeyed!! If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly. Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count as fruit, so eat as many as you want. The problem: How to get two pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car. The solution: Eat it in the parking lot. Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off your appetite and you'll eat less. A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn't that handy? If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can't eat all your chocolate, what's wrong with you?

If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves. Money talks. Chocolate sings. Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger. Why is there no such organisation as Chocoholics Anonymous? Because no one wants to quit. Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you'll get one thing done. Chocolate is a health food. Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. Bean = vegetable. Sugar is derived either from sugar beets or cane, both vegetables. And, of course, the milk/cream is dairy. So eat more chocolate to meet the dietary requirements for daily vegetable and dairy intake.

Midas Telecom

On Thursday 23rd February Midas Energy in Torrox Costa held a party for all existing clients and new customers to promote all their services. I was lucky enough to be part of that evening where Vanessa the Managing Director was on hand along with seven staff members to answer any questions that anyone had. The reasoning behind the party was mainly focussed on showing Midas as an approachable company with allowing clients to meet the team and discuss the products that Midas offer. It certainly seemed to work, as the event was well supported with many existing and potentially new clients milling around, chatting and enjoying the good selection of tapas and locally produced wine. Vanessa said, “We feel that our customers are our priority and feedback from them is invaluable. Their satisfaction is of paramount importance. Parties like these are an excellent way

of meeting our clients and we will probably have another before the summer.” Midas Telecom offer the complete solution for all your telecom needs, from mobiles to landlines, from internet to dongles. Phoneline package: 19.90€ + IVA per month w Line Rental

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts In colder climates, some moths can have a two-year life cycle.

g n i z a Am cts Inse oths

A small group of moths are called "Bird Dropping" moths because you guessed it - that's what they resemble when they are at rest.

M

Many females of the Tussock family of moths don't have wings. The Hawk moth (Sphinx) is the world’s fastest flying insect attaining speed of over 50kph Moth antennae are either feather-like or a hairlike filament. The Cecropia moth is North America's largest insect. Moths have hairy bodies to help retain internal body temperature necessary for flight. Quite a few moths fly during the day, such as the Hummingbird Clearwing, Virginia Ctenucha and the Spear-Marked Black.

Moths navigate by two methods. They use the moon and stars when available and geomagnetic clues when light sources are obscured. Cloth Moths eat such things as wool, fur and other animal products. It is their ability to digest Keratin ....... a protein found in these foods. Some moths pupate underground, such as many of the Sphinx moths. Moths can produce as many as 10 broods per year.

Amazing Insects (Continued) Moths heat up their flight muscles by vibrating their wings, since they don't have the radiant energy of the sun at their disposal to serve that purpose. The Luna moth is born without a mouth.....it never eats or drinks. Hummingbird moths’ wings beat 70 times per second. Pellet-like caterpillar excalled is crement "Frass".

The smallest moths, called "micros," have a wingspans of 3 or 4 mil-

Male moths have larger antennae than females. These are beneficial for detecting the pheromones released by females.

Pheromones can be dispersed through the tibia segment of the leg, scales on the wings or from the abdomen. The Woolly Bear caterpillar we are all familiar with turns into......the Isabella Tiger Moth. The Webworm caterpillars go into communal diapause. Moths are capable of migration but they do so over much smaller distances. Moths are active at different times of the night depending on species. Giant Silkworm Moths have a 1 year life cycle. Wing veins are useful for species identification – much like finger prints. Moths make up 80 per cent of the order lepidoptera. Some moth caterpillars, such as the "Io" are covered with stinging hairs.

Life In The Campo - Book Release Life in the Campo is a true account of a middle-aged couple’s attempts at becoming Spanish peasants, living in the foothills of the Almijara mountains. With solar powered electricity and water delivered by tanker, they struggled to begin with. But their experiences, along with mains electricity and water piped to the land meant that they could plant avocados, and the kindly local farmers brought a mule to plough the land, took them to a nursery to choose the best avocado trees, and planted them! These amusing true stories are great tales for dipping in and out of at any time!

5 Star amazon review: “This is just the funniest book about Spain I've ever read!!! I love all the anecdotes about building a life in the campo and having lived in Spain myself, I recognise so many situations that this loveable couple went through. I thoroughly recommend it as essential reading for anyone wishing to move to Spain!” Life in the Campo by Maggie Hutton with illustrations by Barry Surie Published by Pen Press (see advert below) Available from bookshops in Andalucia, including Smiffs in Nerja, and Amazon UK and Spain.

New In Nerja - Garra Rufa Fish or wounds on your feet you should allow them to heal first. We also advise to wait at least 24 hours after having a leg wax or shaving.

For those of you that read this article in the March issue will realise that I did not say where you can to go to have your feet nibbled by these fish. Pop along to abc Nailstore in Nerja, C/Barrio 35-B or call: 952 52 52 89. Originating from Turkey this unique pedicure and skin treatment massages your feet using Garra Rufa fish. A new pampering experience that feels fantastic. So don't be shy and give it a try, I did! I had a truely amazing experience and sensation that is almost too hard for words. To begin, for me it felt like I was doing a bush tucker trial that felt all tickly and tingly, but very quickly I forgot this and began to enjoy the fish nibbling. They were certainly hungry and after 10 – 15 minutes I did not want to take my feet out, I felt so relaxed with my new fish friends, I had an urge to name all 150 of them! On completion I enjoyed a very relaxing foot massage and I have to say I had a surprising bounce in my step walking back to my car. what are the benefits? During the treatment the Garra Rufa fish nibble away the dry skin from your feet leaving your feet feeling refreshed and healthy. These clever fish can also stimulate acupuncture points, helping to regulate the nervous system, relax the body and release fatigue. Your blood circulation and flow is also greatly increased during the treatment. what does it feel like? The treatment can be a little tickly to start with, which is great, because we can all do with a laugh once in a while! You will feel a light tingling sensation and enjoy a relaxing foot massage. Does it hurt? No! The fish have no teeth so the treatment works by them gently nibbling away at dry skin which is a lovely experience! Can i catch any diseases? No, certainly not! These fish cannot transfer any diseases to humans. You will rinse your feet before the treatment and have your own dedicated spa pod. We employ a state of the art filtration system to ensure utmost safety for our clients. However, we do advise that people with weakened immune systems or underlying medical conditions, including diabetes, eczema and psoriasis, against partaking as general guidelines dictate that people with these conditions may be at risk of infection. You also cannot partake if you have a verucca, fungal nail or an infectious skin condition as these conditions can be contagious. Sorry! If you have any open cuts

Can i have the treatment if i am wearing fake tan? Generally we would say no, as they can be quite toxic to the fish. But hey, this is Spain, so hopefully you will get yourself a natural tan! Can i take the treatment if i am wearing nail varnish? Yes, as long as it has been applied more than 48 hours beforehand and it isn’t flaking. how old do i have to be? If you are accompanied by an adult - any age! If you are not with an over 18 year old you must be at least 14 years old. how much does it cost? Amazingly it costs a lot less than you may think! Treatments start at just 10€. To help you choose, a full price menu is available at the salon. For example, you may opt for a fish pedicure with a relaxing massage and (if required) a polish of your choice. Either way all our treatments certainly make you feel good! Do i have to book an appointment? This is a "walk-in" service with NO appointment, so please just pop on in and let our little fish work their magic. See main advert on page 73

George Carlin’s View On Aging Do you realise that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids? If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions. 'How old are you?' 'I'm four and a half!' You're never thirty-six and a half. You're four and a half, going on five! That's the key. You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead. 'How old are you?' 'I'm gonna be 16!' You could be 13, but hey, you're gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life! You become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!! But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There's no fun now, you're just a sour-dumpling. What's wrong? What's changed?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it's all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone. But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would! So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60. You've built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it's a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday! You get into your 80's and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn't end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; 'I Was JUST 92.' Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. 'I'm 100 and a half!' May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!

Observations Respect to the ex England manager Fabio Capello for finding work so quickly.

Parking in Torre del Mar has notoriously been a bit of a mare. The Sentinella has been on to the Junta to ask for bigger spaces.

Don’t worry Fab, Carrots has just opened! Go drown your sorrows. -------------------------------------------------------------

Corumbela it was joined with Sayalonga.

The very name conjures up images of pantomime fairies and cats! However the Romans named it La Paloma, the Pigeon! The villages perches, perhaps a little pigeon like! 600 metres above sea level, with spectacular views of the Sierra Tejeda, Almijara and Alhama as well as the verdant valley below. It is situated 16 klms from the coast and is probably the smallest of the Pueblos Blancos to be found in the Axarquía. Not much is known about the origin of the village but in 1493, catholic monarchs gave the village to Diego Fernandez of Cordoba, second Earl of Cabra, as payment for his services during the re-conquests final years. Later the Medinaceli family owned it until 1811 when the Parliament of Cadiz banned family ownerships. Afer that it had its own council until 1868 when

Property Of The Month

During the years 1884 – 86, Corumbela like Sayalonga and some coastal areas suffered from an outbreak of phylloxera, the disease which destroyed the vines, this and a series of earthquakes, resulted in most people leaving the area. Nowadays it is a sleepy village with about 300 inhabitants. One of the most striking things about the village is the church with its Mudejar style minaret, apart from that there is only a small bakery and Meson Los Arcos, a bar-restaurant. For more entertainment Archez is a few minutes drive away with plenty of restaurants and bars. Or the bustling much larger village of Cómpeta is not far away. Corumbela is 49 klms from Málaga and is on the Mudejar route of the Axarquía. The easiest way to get there is either to drive past Arenas and Daimalos, or up past Algarrobo and Sayalonga then turning left for Archez and carrying on over the bridge to Corumbela.

Veggie Patch There’s not been much action at our allotment lately. Tony went there recently to dig up the last of the edibles – some beetroots and celery. Now it’s time to plant a new batch of crops to take us up to the summer period, however it’s difficult to find the time in our busy schedules. But what an amazing yield we’ve enjoyed for the last few months! There were peas in the pod, cabbages, lettuces, tomatoes, beetroots, celery, herbs, cucumbers, onions, carrots, and probably a few that I’m forgetting about. The general lack of rain this season has meant regular visits to our plot to water, etc, but when we settle down to an organic home-grown salad, we realise that all the effort is worth it. If you would like a plot then call Jose 639 12 07 07.

Profile Name: Harrison Ford Birthday: July 13 1942, age: 69 Sign: Cancer Birthplace: Chicago Marital Status: Married to Calista Flockhart Children: Benjamin and Willard, with his first wife, Mary Marquardt; Malcolm and Georgia with his second wife, screenwriter Melissa Mathison; Liam, adopted son of Calista Flockhart. Occupation: Actor Claim to fame: Indiana Jones Harrison’s mother, Dorothy (née Dora Nidelman), was a homemaker and former radio actress, and his father, Christopher Ford (born John William Ford), was an advertising executive and a former actor.

Ford began dating actress Calista Flockhart after meeting at the 2002 Golden Globes, and proposed to her over Valentine's Day weekend in 2009.They married on June 15, 2010, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where Ford was filming Cowboys and Aliens. In 1997, Ford was ranked No. 1 in Empire's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. As of July 2008, the United States domestic box office grosses of Ford's films total almost US$3.4 billion, with worldwide grosses surpassing $6 billion, making Ford the third highest grossing U.S. domestic box-office star. In 1964, Ford travelled to Los Angeles, California to apply for a job in radio voice-overs. He did not get it, but stayed in California and eventually signed a $150 a week contract with Columbia Pictures' New Talent program, playing bit roles in films. Not happy with the roles being offered to him, Ford became a self-taught professional carpenter to support his then-wife and two small sons. While working as a carpenter, he became a stagehand for the popular rock band The Doors. He also built a sun deck for actress Sally Kellerman and a recording studio for Brazilian band leader Sérgio Mendes. Ford's carpentry work eventually landed him his first starring film role. In 1975, George Lucas hired him to read lines for actors auditioning for parts in his space opera Star Wars (1977). Ford injured his chin at the age of 20 when his car, a Volvo 544, hit a telephone pole in Northern California; the scar is visible in his films. An explanation for it is offered in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, when a young Indiana Jones cuts his chin while attempting to crack a whip to ward off a lion. Ford is a private pilot of both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, and owns an 800-acre (3.2 km2) ranch in Jackson, Wyoming, approximately half of which he has donated as a nature reserve. Ford is a close friend of former President Bill Clinton. He received the first ever Hero Award for his many iconic roles, including Han Solo and Indiana Jones, at the 2007 Scream Awards, and in 2008, received the Spike TV's Guy's Choice Award for Brass Balls.

LT Construction count the land structure, making the footings superficial at best. This should be a major concern, and even more so if your house is built in an area where the soil type is clay. In the winter, the soil will expand as it takes on water and in the dry summer months, the soil will contract. This constant movement of the subsoil will result in walls losing their integrity, cracks forming and in time, the wall collapsing. Freestanding Garden Walls With freestanding garden walls, more emphasis can be put on the look and enhancement of the garden. The use of locally-sourced natural stone can help to create a look of distinction which will dress and enhance, and may also be a requirement of local building regulations. Freestanding walls allow for greater flexibility in terms of material choice and aesthetic outcome, and are often less expensive than retaining walls (where strength is the main concern). However, it is commonly assumed that freestanding walls should be low cost, as they don’t need to be as strong. To save on costs, builders often create freestanding walls with footings that are not robust enough, leading to wall movement due to subsidence or heave. They neglect to take into ac-

At LT Construction, we focus equally on the structural specification as well as the aesthetic concerns of freestanding walls. In doing so, we consider any such projects as major works in their own right, and will design and build walls which are not only very attractive, but able to stand the test of time. Please bear in mind that a building licence would be required for any walling. We at LT Construction would apply on your behalf and see you through this often-frustrating process. See various examples of Freestanding Garden Wall design on our website at: www.ltconstruction.es Let LT Construction be your first choice when calling on expert advice in designing your garden walls.

Film iew t Reve Artis Th

The Artist is about a matinee idol at the peak of his fame who slowly loses everything, and an actress who coincidentally begins the climb to stardom as silent pictures give way to movies with sound. As the film begins, George Valentin (Mr. Dujardin) is the toast of the town, an actor and dancer who exudes elegance, charm and confidence at the premiere of his latest hit. Outside the theatre, he meets an autograph seeker, Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo), who turns up as an extra for his next picture. But their paths soon diverge as he balks at the

Now it is the future, and eventually he is on the outside looking in, as Peppy graduates to leading lady. George spirals into despair, with only his faithful driver and Jack Russell terrier for companionship. But, as with all movies about star-crossed romances, the onetime screen idol and America’s new sweetheart will meet again. The Artist, written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius, is a silent black-and-white movie, but it features title cards, lush music by the Flanders Philharmonic Orchestra, and amazing actors. The cast also includes James Cromwell as a chauffeur; John Goodman as a cigar-chomping mogul; Penelope Ann Miller as George's wife, and Malcolm McDowell as a butler. Star rating- *****/*****

The Word Queen Offline Book Marketing Methods If you self-published your book then unfortunately there’s no one else to market your book apart from you. After all, if no one knows that your book exists then you won’t have much chance of seeing it on the Times bestsellers list! Below is a list of a few effective offline book marketing methods…

tage of having access to their audience. You can offer your book for sale to your joint venture partner’s audience and sell lots more copies as a result. Maybe at the same time you could place an advert in your book, or on your website, to publicise your joint venture partner. The Press: *Create a Press Release, including tips and how-to’s. *Get a Feature Story from the media. *Write a how-to article and submit to relevant newspapers and magazines.

Teleseminars: A teleseminar is essentially a seminar over the phone using conference line services. It’s a great tool to build an audience quickly and share your message. You can be a guest on other people’s teleseminars or hold your own. There are many free resources available to hold your teleseminars, just do a search on Google to find one that suits you.

Talk Show radio and TV: If you manage to get on to TV or the radio, bear in mind that your audience mainly like to hear ‘how-to’ information, not other details about your book.

Joint Venture Launch: A joint venture launch involves asking potential partners to support you by sharing your information with their audience. Typically you’d select a partner who is well established in your field to gain the advan-

I hope these offline book marketing methods work for you… next month I’ll focus on some effective online methods…

Petrol Tips With Petrol on the rise these tips might come in handy. Here are some tricks to get more of your money's worth for every Litre: Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense the petrol, when it gets warmer petrol expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening... your litre is not exactly a litre. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the petrol, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays an important role. A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps. When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. You should be pumping on low mode, thereby minimising the vapours that are created while you are pumping. All

hoses at the pump have a vapour return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapour. Those vapours are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less worth for your money. One of the most important tips is to fill up when your Petrol tank is HALF FULL. The more Petrol you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. Petrol evaporates faster than you can imagine. Petrol storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the Petrol and the atmosphere, so it minimises the evaporation. Unlike service stations, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every litre is actually the exact amount. Finally if there is a petrol truck pumping into the storage tanks when you buy Petrol, DO NOT fill up; most likely the petrol is being stirred up as the Petrol is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.

Talleres Simon First Year Celebration

Where does the time go? It has been one year since Simon and his team opened Talleres Simon in Velez Malaga, and one year on, they continue to offer a very high standard of service within their successful garage. They would like to offer all their past, present and future clients a cordial invitation to their first year anniversary celebration on Saturday 5th May 2012 at the garage. Why not pop along and celebrate with them, and at the same time, have a chat with the highly-trained mechanics about your car?

The summer appears to be just around the corner and there is no better time to think about getting your air conditioning systems checked. The filter may need changing, and the system may need to be re-gassed. The cooling system also needs checking to make sure it is up to scratch. Now is a perfect time to do this before the heat of summer is upon us. Simon says, “As always, a little maintenance now can save you a lot of trouble and money later on. We look forward to seeing you all!” See main advert on page 23

Why Greece Is In Financial Trouble In a detailed article in the Daily Mail (New York) the paper lists some of the waste or abuses of the Greek government: 1. The Metro trains in Athens are air conditioned and feature plasma TVs to entertain commuters. Trains are practically free to use by the 5 million inhabitants of the city. Well, they aren't supposed to be, but as there are no controls at the stations or in the trains, only a small minority of the travelling public actually bothers to buy a ticket. By the way, the Metro system cost 1.7 billion Euros which was paid for by Europe.

people in the country, are exempt from paying tax. However the shipyards are empty and only about 500 employees are engaged to look after all the shipyards. 9. Only 300 inhabitants of the richest suburb in Athens, Kifissia, include a swimming pool in their list of assets when in fact there are over 20,000 pools in this suburb. 10 Greece misses out more than 450 billion Euros annually in taxes which should rightfully be collected.

2. The average annual income of the Railway Personal including train drivers and cleaners is 70,000€. This represents a third of all employees in the private sector. 3. The annual turnover of the Railway company is 90 million Euros which includes an annual bill of 575 million Euros in salaries. This has led a Greek politician to state that it would be cheaper to transport passengers in private taxis. 4. In the last ten years, salaries in the public sector have doubled. 5. For more than 600 trades and professions in Greece, considered 'hard and dangerous' the retirement age has been lowered to 50, with an annual pension of 95% of their last salary. This includes such trades as pasty cooks, radio announcers, barbers and masseurs in Turkish baths. 6. Tax returns are filled in by taxpayers directly and are hardly ever checked. Thus, in a land with 12 million inhabitants only 5,000 people state in their tax returns that they earn more than 100,000€, without any mention of funds invested in foreign countries. A lot of Greek tax payers state that they only earn 12,000€, despite owning holiday houses on Greek islands, abroad, as well as boats and luxury cars. 7. If a vigilant Tax inspector questions some of the claims, he/she is presented with a "fakalaki", an envelope with money. There is even an unofficial scale of amounts which is expected to be paid to officials. It is estimated that the average Greek householder pays 2,000€ to officials. 8. The large Greek ship owners, the richest

Saving the special treats for your 40th, 50th, 60th and long into the future. Perhaps a holiday, a cruise even... let yourself be waited on hand and foot. Perhaps a hot air balloon trip, a day in bed or how about... A 5 kilometre run, A 10 kilometre bicycle ride, 10 kilometres on a cross trainer, 5 kilometres on a rowing machine, 500 sit-ups, 500 leg presses, 500 bicep curls, 500 bench presses, 500 squats and 500 thigh extensions... and ALL to be completed in 5 hours. I have it on the highest authority that the medical term for this condition is commonly known as ‘Barking Mad’, unless, of course, you are undertaking this huge effort to raise money for charity. Just so with Angela from Buy/Rent a Home Spain in Torre del Mar who has agreed to undertake this mountain of a task to raise much needed money for Cancer Research, The Heart Foundation and Premature Babies. To match Angela’s effort, we are asking Publication XYZ’s readers to help raise as much money as possible to make this a memorable

day for everyone concerned. At just 50 cents per task all ten will cost the sponsor just 5€, a small amount to help change someone’s life and reward a very courageous woman for a superb unselfish effort. Angela’s challenge will take place on the 25th May at the Sensei Gym Torre del Mar, and there’s an open invitation for Publication XYZ’s readers to join in on all or part of the challenge and help Angela raise much needed funds for three worthwhile charities. As to the question of which particular birthday Angela is celebrating, well, she’s not at liberty to say, and for this correspondent it’s

a step too far to ask! Details of how you can help Angela in her effort can be had from:- Rent a Home Spain/Buy a Home Spain, Calle Pintor Cipriano Maldonado 7A, Edificio Salares, Torre del Mar. Tel: 952547554 / 680210414

Mind, Body & Spirit This month I’m devoting this column to sharing a new and exciting venture which I hope will add further informed support to the growing interest in matters, holistic and alternative amongst the community here. "OPEN HEARTS AND MINDS" is a brand new interactive radio show which I am presenting devoted to conscious living, building alternative community and co-creating a new paradigm of Life. Among the themes featured in the show are: Holistic healing, spirituality, the 2012 shift, living in harmony with our planet, cosmology, astrology, higher realms of consciousness and multidimensional reality, ancient wisdom, modern revelation, prophecy & psychic prediction... and much more. Opening hearts and minds is what I do, and what I have always done in a career spanning 30 years as a healer and as a teacher of spirituality & consciousness. My involvement with radio began a long time ago whilst working as media spokesperson for an environmental organisation which I had co-founded in Ireland. As my focus shifted from the natural to the human environment and my career moved fulltime into healing I made frequent appearances on local & national stations. Talking about healing and spirituality. It was here that I came to fully appreciate the power of radio as a means to connect at an intimate level with a much larger audience than was possible in person. Amazing things happened! From the safety of their own homes and armchairs people who were complete strangers would open up and share their hearts and soul. Spontaneous heal-

ings took place, live on air, which touched other listeners who in turn received healing, help and support. When, in 2010, I moved to the coast, I was a regular guest on Talk Radio Europe’s night time show, talking not just about healing but many of the other subjects I have been researching and lecturing on for many years: the 2012 prophecies and the changing times, the spiritual dimension to Life, crop circles, ancient wisdom... Not your average radio fare by any means, yet no matter how apparently “far-out” the subject, it was received enthusiastically and positively by the audience, and listeners called into the show in numbers to share their experiences and ask questions. So when the opportunity came to present my very own, dedicated show, I gratefully embraced it. It is my heartfelt desire that “Open Hearts & Minds” will answer a real and growing need for nourishment and care of the human heart, soul and spirit, and will serve and support the community for a long time to come. Open Hearts & Minds on Talk Radio Europe. Tuesdays & Thursdays 8-11pm. Tune in on 88.9fm or 91.9fm on the Costa del Sol. Listen live online anywhere in the world. Go to www.talkradioeurope.com for details of more wavebands to tune into all around the coast of Spain & Mallorca.

) : a h a h s e k o J The marriage of an 80 year old man and a 20 year old woman was the talk of the town. After being married a year, the couple went to the hospital for the birth of their first child. The attending nurse came out of the delivery room to congratulate the old gentleman and said, 'This is amazing. How do you do it at your age?' The old man grinned and said, 'You got to keep the old motor running.' The following year, the couple returned to the hospital for the birth of their second child. The same nurse was attending the delivery and again went out to congratulate the old gentleman. She said, 'Sir, you are something else. How do you manage it?' The old man grinned and said, 'You gotta keep the old motor running..' A year later, the couple returned to the hospital for the birth of their third child. The same nurse was there for this birth also and, after the delivery, she once again approached the old gentleman, smiled, and said, 'Well, you surely are something else! How do you do it?' The old man replied, 'It's like I've told you before, you gotta keep the old motor running.' The nurse, still smiling, patted him on the back and said: 'Well, I guess it's time to change the oil. This one's black.' --------------------------------------------------------------Two Irishmen were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up. A blonde walks by and asked them what they were doing. Paddy replied, 'We're supposed to be finding the height of this flagpole, but we don't have a ladder.' The blonde took out an adjustable spanner from her bag, loosened a few bolts and laid the flagpole down. She got a tape measure out of her pocket, took a few measurements, and announced that it was 18’ 6”. Then, she walked off. Mick said to Paddy, 'Isn't that just like a blonde! We need the height, and she gives us the bloody length’. --------------------------------------------------------------A wife comes home late at night and quietly opens the door to her bedroom. From under the

blanket she sees four legs instead of two. She reaches for a baseball bat and starts hitting the blanket as hard as she can. Once she's done, she goes to the kitchen to have a drink. As she enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine. “Hi Darling", he says, "Your parents have come to visit us, so l let them stay in our bedroom. Did you say hello”? --------------------------------------------------------------An old prospector shuffled into the town of Del Rio, Texas leading a tired old mule. The old man headed straight for the only saloon in town, to clear his parched throat. He walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other. The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, "Hey old man, can you dance?". The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No son, I don't dance... never really wanted to". A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, "Well, you old fool, you're gonna dance now!" and started shooting at the old man's feet. The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet. Everybody standing around was laughing. When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon. The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled 12 gauge shotgun and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin 12 gauge barrels. The old man quietly said "Son, have you ever kissed a mule's ass?" The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No sir... but... I've always wanted to".

Jokes h a h a :) Little Susie was not the best student in Catholic School. Usually she slept through the class. One day her teacher, a nun, called on her while she was sleeping. 'Tell me Susie, who created the universe?' When Susie didn't stir, little Johnny who was her friend sitting behind her, took his pencil and jabbed her in the rear. 'God Almighty!' shouted Susie. The nun said, 'Very good' and continued teaching her class.. A little later the nun asked Susie, 'Who is our Lord and Saviour?' But Susie didn't stir from her slumber. Once again, Johnny came to her rescue and stuck her in the butt. 'Jesus Christ!!!' shouted Susie. And the nun once again said, 'Very good,' and Susie fell back asleep. The Nun asked her a third question...'What did Eve say to Adam after she had her twenty-third child?' Again, Johnny came to the rescue. This time Susie jumped up and shouted, 'If you stick that damn thing in me one more time, I'll break it in half!' The nun fainted. ------------------------------------------------------------Mike was going to be married to Karen so his father sat him down for a little chat. He said, 'Mike, let me tell you something. On my wedding night in our honeymoon suite, I took off my pants, handed them to your mother, and said, Here, try these on.'' She did and said, 'These are too big. I can't wear them.' I replied, 'Exactly.. I wear the pants in this family and I always will.' Ever since that night, we have never had any problems”. 'Hmmm,' said Mike. He thought that might be a good thing to try. On his honeymoon, Mike took off his pants and said to Karen, 'Here, try these on..' She tried them on and said, 'These are too large. They don't fit me.' Mike said, 'Exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will. I don't want you to ever

forget that.' Then Karen took off her panties and handed them to Mike. She said, 'Here, you try on mine..' Mike did and said, 'I can't get into your panties.' Karen said, 'Exactly. And if you don't change your smart-ass attitude, you never will.' ------------------------------------------------------------An 18 year-old girl tells her mum that she has missed her period for two months. Very worried, the mother goes to the chemist and buys a pregnancy kit. The test result shows that the girl is pregnant. Shouting, cursing, crying, the mother says, 'Who was the pig that did this to you? I want to know!' The girl picks up the phone and makes a call. Half an hour later a Ferrari stops in front of their house, a mature and distinguished man with grey hair and impeccably dressed in an Armani suit steps out of the Ferrari and enters the house. He sits in the living room with the father, mother, and the girl and tells them: 'Good morning, your daughter has informed me of the problem. I can't marry her because of my personal family situation but I'll take charge. I will pay all costs and provide for your daughter for the rest of her life. Additionally, if a girl is born I will bequeath her 2 retail stores, a townhouse, a beachfront villa and a £2,000,000 bank account. If a boy is born, my legacy will be a couple of factories and a £4,000,000 bank account. If twins, they will receive a factory and £2,000,000 each. However, if there is a miscarriage, I'm not really sure what to do. What do you suggest?' At this point, the girl’s father, who had remained silent, places a hand firmly on the man's shoulder and tells him, 'You shag her again.' ------------------------------------------------------------Q: Why do men whistle when they are sitting on the toilet? A: It helps them remember which end they need to wipe.
