One of the keys to leading a fulfilling life is knowing and understanding how to be happy on a daily basis, no matter what is going on in the world around us. I had a major breakthrough and revelation when I discovered that being happy was a simple decision. I could either decide to be happy or not to be happy. At the time, a light bulb literally pinged on in my head and luckily it hasn’t gone out since…although admittedly it has dimmed on occasion. Some days everything seems to go wrong around us. The toaster stops working. We get nail varnish on our blouse. Our favourite shoes break. Then the car doesn’t start, or we bang our head on the stairway and get a nasty bruise. On days like these, it’s easy to forget about the decision to be happy and instead focus our attention on the seemingly negative events. If this is your predicament, breathe deeply, count to ten, and choose to change your mindset. Stop focusing on the negative and channel energy into remembering something positive in your life. It only takes one positive memory to spark more and then suddenly, after five minutes or so of this change in mindset, you’ll find yourself feeling happy again. Also, it’s important to point out here that nothing “makes” you happy and nothing “makes” you sad. Now, you’re probably thinking, “That’s not true. Sometimes so and so is really horrible to me so that makes me sad.” Or perhaps you’re saying, “That’s not true. Sometimes I get to eat chocolate while I watch TV in the evening and that makes me happy.” However, really you are choosing how to feel based on very insignificant events. True happiness is not that superficial or short-lived. True happiness comes from the place of peace within, which neither so and so nor chocolate has the power to change.

From The Ed (cont) and other animals. Even when I’m sitting in my office alone typing, I smile. That is a great way of reminding myself how happy I am! From the time of our birth we are counting down the seconds of our time on planet earth. So, as these seconds tick by, we may as well decide to feel happy more often than sad… So there you go, now you know how to be happy. Just decide to be and then see what unfolds in your life…

Despite all the nasty rain we have had, is this not a lovely photo that Jan Pierce from Fogarate sent us of Canillas. Hope you went in search of the pot of gold!

Strange News Brolly chute - A video has been posted online of a man trying to float down to earth from a hot air balloon - Mary Poppins-style - clutching a patio umbrella. Erik Roner, professional skier and BASE jumper, recorded his jump over southern California, on his "Roner Vision" YouTube series. He is shown soaring through clear skies until he is hundreds of feet above the ground when he jumps out of the basket, clutching his umbrella. It does appear to slow his descent - albeit without the serene grace of Julie Andrews in the classic 1964 film - until the umbrella cloth gives way. Fortunately, Mr Roner anticipated this turn of events and opened his back-up parachute to float safely back down the earth. Biter bit - A British adventure angler achieved a lifelong ambition when he landed a 250lb monster fish in South America - using a piranha as bait. Steve Townson landed the wild arapaima - the world's largest scaled freshwater fish - from Middle River Essequibo in Guyana. Mr Townson, who travels the world catching exotic fish, used a 2lb piranha to catch the mighty fish, plus another weighing around 150lb. "The Arapaima is one of the world's biggest and mightiest freshwater fish and to catch them in the wild is a rare privilege," he said."They are protected and cannot be removed by law for the table, but our partners in Guyana are working on strictly catch and release with the local Amerindians. "The Arapaima is the largest scaled freshwater fish in the world, but they can be delicate and must be handled with care.The fish I caught were never removed from the water and swam

interesting Facts - Egypt has the largest Arabic population in the world. Pharaoh Pepi II (2246-2152 B.C.) had the longest reign in history - 94 years. He became Egypt’s King when he was only 6 years old. Ramses II is often considered the greatest pharaoh of the Egyptian empire. He ruled Egypt for 60 years and was the only pharaoh to carry the title “the Great” after his name. He had over 90 children: 56 boys and 44 girls. Ancient Egyptian women had more rights and privileges than most other women in the ancient world. For example, they could own property, carry out business deals, and initiate divorce. The ancient Egyptians were the first people to have a year consisting of 365 days divided into 12 months. They also invented clocks. Tourism compromises 12% of the work force in Egypt.

Chortles An 8-year-old girl went to her grandfather, who was working in the yard and asked him, "Grampa, what is couple sex?" The grandfather was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decided that if she's old enough to know to ask the question, then she is old enough to get a straight answer. Steeling himself to leave nothing out, he proceeded to tell her all about human reproduction and the joys and responsibilities of intercourse. When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement. Seeing the look on her face, the grandfather asked her, "Why did you ask this question, honey?" The little girl replied, "Grandma says that dinner will be ready in just a couple secs. ------------------------------------------------------------I accidentally drank Tippex last night instead of liquid Viagra. I woke up this morning with a huge correction. ------------------------------------------------------------A little lad goes bounding into the living room, jumping up on to his granddad's knee, shouting, "Granddad, Granddad, Granddad! Can you make a noise like a frog?"

Granddad looked a little bemused, but said, "I think so, yes. Why do you want me to make a noise like a frog?" The lad gleefully proclaims, "Because Daddy says, 'When the old man croaks, we can all go to Disney Land.' ------------------------------------------------------------After both suffering from depression for a while, me and the wife were going to commit suicide yesterday. But strangely enough, once she killed herself, I started to feel a lot better. So I thought, “I think I’ll soldier on!” ------------------------------------------------------------I woke up this morning at 8, and could sense something was wrong. I went downstairs and found the wife face down on the kitchen floor, not breathing! I panicked. I didn’t know what to do. Then I remembered McDonald’s serves breakfast until 11:30. ------------------------------------------------------------Bought the missus a hamster skin coat last week. Took her to the fair last night, and it took me 3 hours to get her off the Ferris wheel. ------------------------------------------------------------I spent a couple of hours defrosting the fridge last night, or ‘foreplay’ as she likes to call it.

Funny Facebook Messages The things people tell the world.... In bed, it’s 6AM you close your eyes for 5 minutes, it’s 7:45. At school it’s 1:30, close your eyes for 5 minutes, it’s 1:31. I wonder what happens when a doctor’s wife eats an apple a day. :) GOOGLE must be a woman because it knows everything. I only need 3 things in life: Food, Wifi, Sleep :) A husband is someone who, after taking the rubbish out, gives the impression he just cleaned the whole house. When a woman says WHAT? Its not because she didn’t hear you. She’s giving you a chance to change what you said. The human brain is amazing. It functions 24 hours a day from the time we were born, and only stops when we take exams or are in love.

Who Loves Who?! Look at this picture carefully, what do you see?

Everyone sees the girl sitting and the boy hugging her neck. Then look carefully again……It is actually the reverse! It is our perception that influences our vision & thinking. Yes, it is true... look at the guy’s neck… he is actually the one sitting on the couch with the girl hugging over him. Can you see both versions now?

lth a r e H ch nce a C Wat y Did atphpeear?


wh Dis

how can a cancer that was spreading and, according to medical experts required urgent treatment, just disappear within four weeks without medical treatment? This is the question Marion Dias asked her medical professionals but they failed to offer a plausible answer. This led her to document her experience in her book why Did the Cancer Disappear published in 2012. She emphasises the need for each one of us to take more personal responsibility and a robust approach to participation in our healing, health and well-being, regardless of any treatment we choose. It is not about dismissing the experts’ advice but asking pertinent questions and doing your own research to satisfy yourself before you make the choice. She further emphasises the need for treating the mind as well as the body. Although medical science now recognises that the mind and body are connected, as established by the science of psychoneuroimmunology or PNI (as it commonly known), illnesses are still considered and treated only at the level of the physical body. As a certified trainer and practitioner of clinical hypnosis, NLP Time Line Therapy™ and energy healing for more than 16 years, Marion has counselled many cancer patients -- usually to help them deal with the side effects of the treatment, pain control, fears/anxieties, boosting the immune function and helping to maintain a positive focus. When Marion was diagnosed with cancer of the endometrium in 2006, she was concerned by the prospect of having conventional treatment -- the only treatment available to her. Having carefully researched the success of such treatments (chemotherapy and radiation treatment), she chose instead to treat herself using her own therapeutic skills and made several lifestyle changes in all areas of her life. Over the ensuing months, she managed to

stop all the symptoms. However, some seven months later, when the doctors insisted that the cancer had spread and her life was at risk unless she had urgent treatment, she was per-suaded to undergo major surgery within four weeks of the second diagnosis. She continued with her clinical hypnosis and energy healing in her determination to get well. Marion subsequently discovered that the biopsies on the matter removed as a result of surgery (ie a total hysterectomy and 16 lymph nodes) failed to show any residue of cancer. The cancer that was spreading just four weeks before surgery had totally disappeared without any medical intervention. Over two years, she sought explanations from her medical professional as to how a cancer they had insisted was spreading could just disappear, but they were unable to provide a plausible explanation. “Why Did the Cancer Disappear” by Marion Dias BSc (Hons) Clinical Hypnosis is available from Amazon or Smiff’s bookshop Nerja. Marion has remained free from cancer ever since and subsequently changed the way she worked. She now offers several workshops and retreats in personal development to promote health and well-being. The emphasis is on being well and enjoying life. She is passionate about helping people to help themselves by sharing her experience, and teaching skills, processes and coping strategies drawn from some of the most powerful tools and techniques and healing processes available today. These include an awareness of the science of mind- body medicine or psycho-neuro-immunology or PNI as it is commonly known. Brief details of the workshops are on the page opposite.

Watching your blood pressure while you are pregnant reduces your risk of developing pregnancy - induced hypertension. This can lead to a serious condition called preeclampsia where there is a problem with the placenta (the organ that links the baby’s blood supply to the mother’s). High blood pressure usually has no obvious symptoms and many people have it without knowing. Untreated high blood pressure can lead to srious diseases, including stroke and heart disease. The only way to know if you have high blood pressure (medically known as hypertension) is to have your blood pressure

During the time that the atomic bomb was being hatched by the United States at Alamogordo, New Mexico, applicants for routine jobs like janitors, were disqualified if they could read. Illiteracy was a job requirement. The reason: the authorities did not want their trash or other papers read. George Washington had to borrow money to go to his own inauguration. Napolean had his boots worn by servants to break them in before he wore them. Honey is used as a centre for golf balls and in antifreeze mixtures. In ancient Rome it was considered a sign of leadership to be born with a crooked nose.

How valuable is the penny you found laying on the ground? If it takes just a second to pick it up a person could make £36.00 per hour just picking up pennies. Human thighbones are as strong as concrete. Human blood travels 60,000 miles per day on its journey through the arteries, arterioles and capillaries and back through the venules and veins. Husbands and wives in India who desire children whisper their wish to the ear of a sacred cow. Hydroxydesoxycorticosterone and hydroxydeoxycorticosterones are the largest anagrams.

A Page For The Doggies! Welcome to our new feature bought to us by Tina from Happy Hounds. DOG EDUCATION This is NOT dog training ─ it’s dog education. There is a difference, and this should begin the moment you get your puppy or dog of any age. A weekly trip to your dog training group will help to socialise your dog which is important, but education begins at home. Puppies are so sweet and easy to spoil, and a rescue dog with a bad start in life might also make you feel that it needs lots of love and pampering, but too much of this and soon your dog will get very bored with you, stop listening and doing what you tell it; it will see you as a soft touch! You can love your dog and educate it as well; the way is simple but as an owner, you have to be disciplined. Some people say dogs need routine. I totally disagree with this, and anyone who has got a dog will tell you, they can tell the time. They know when it’s time for walks and food and they come and tell you. Guess what? You take them out or you feed them, so ask yourself who’s in control? To educate a dog is to teach it you are in control of everything. Dogs should have their own beds to sleep on but you should have control over where they sleep; try moving their beds. Do not walk or feed your dog at the same time every day. This might be hard if you have a routine, but make it wait ─ if only for 10 minutes. Go and do something else first so the decision and when you do it is yours not the dog’s. You should be able to touch the dog’s food, take it away and give it back. The same applies with toys. They belong to you ─ not the dog. Do not let it have the toys all the time; take them away, give them back when you want it to play with them, but never get into a tug of war with your dog. You will lose, and you should never play a game the dog can win. Never give freebies! You can give your dog a treat but never let it have it for free. Call your dog, or make it sit or lie down. Why would your dog want to do anything for you if it can get a treat for free? Then there’s affection. Your normal response when your dog comes to you is to touch it. That’s what it wants, so STOP. Ignore your dog when it comes to you for attention; wait until it

is not near you, then call it to you and give it fuss. Then say, “OK, enough,” and stop. Educating your dog with a few simple changes to the way you treat it will make it see you as a leader: in control, someone it respects. Always remember you are dealing with a pack animal descended from wolves and you need to become the dog’s human Alpha. Training your dog to come, sit and other important commands is much easier if it feels you are the boss. A dominant dog who thinks its owner is weak will become more dominant. All dogs have a protection instinct, and a sensitive, more insecure dog will become even more insecure because it will feel you are not in control and cannot protect it. Both can lead to dogs doing what they want─ not what you want. This can be the cause of what we call behaviour problems but usually, the dog is just reacting to the way it is treated. Try it! Take the control away from your dog and use it to show him it is you who has control. If you have a topic that you would like covered or a specific question please email Tina on:

New Mum in Town - Summer, Summer, Summertime Rewind to last July, and my precious baby was now six months old. She could roll over and she 'recognised' people! She was just amazing and every day was a fabulously new experience thanks to her. I figured I would definitely have a different summer experience to the previous year. Yet there is one thing which hadn't changed...the blimmin belly! Only the year before it was wonderfully cute...this year it was more of the jelly and 'you've just had a baby' variety; doh. Coping with the Spanish summer heat is always a challenge. Throw in a baby and additional 'breastfeeding' hormones and you could call it mission impossible. However, it does keep clothes shopping to a minimum as baby girl is usually only in a nappy (or starkers) at home..and that’s where we are most of the day -- seeking shade! We had started giving Jazmín cereal before bed (a reliable source assured me that it would make her sleep all night) but we had to stop as she was getting a bad tum, and the sleeping at night was worse. So much for reliable sources. I also believe that the heat has something to do with it as I know I eat far less in summer, and baby girl is just a smaller version of me after all. Jazmín would eat when she was ready and in the meantime she had me: the human cow. The present day. It's around 6pm and we are having a baby/mummy reunion on my terrace. I notice that Jazmín is unusually clingy and doesn’t want to be involved, but we all have days like that... We Mummies carry on chatting (about breastfeeding and babies of course) while my baby girl cuddles into me. I am trying to control myself (don't want to seem like an over-anxious new mum), so I give her some paracetamol. She goes to sleep and our guests go home. It's midnight and baby girl is still asleep!! YIKES is she ok? I check her again and see that she is really sweating. This cannot be due to the heat. It just can't. I worriedly check her temperature... please be green... Beepbeepbeep, the thermometer goes mad at me. Jazmín's temperature is 38.8. I shock wake the father again and we rush to Urgencias. She is seen quickly (impressive) and there doesn't seem to be anything seriously wrong. Phew. She is given more meds and we

are sent home...I can't bear to see her so lethargic, so I don't let her go all night. At least she still has her appetite and she doesn't stop suckling. Phew. Morning arrives and I take her straight to the private paediatrician. She seems happier today, yet her face still shows how off-colour she is. He thinks she may have a virus, but it could well be due to teething...apparently. I am prescribed some meds, given instructions and sent home. TEETH! Who would have thought that teeth could cause such trauma! I was instructed (for future reference) that if her temperature reaches 37+ give her paracetamol. If it reaches 39/40, take her to Urgencias. I have never been so worried. Now, I cannot wait to get home and just give my baby girl even more TLC -- if that’s possible! We are going to spend the next couple of days at home with the paddling pool and water toys -- what could be better. Life is goooood (apart from baby girl being ill of course...). More next month. Adios x

The Good Old Days Why our Great Grandparents were so happy... Have you ever wondered why our great grandparents all had such fond memories of their youth? Well... I'm surprised they remembered anything at all !!! Forget Tums & Tylenol. Forget Aleve & Benedryl. Look at the cool stuff they had back then! a bottle of Bayer's 'heroin'. Between 1890 and 1910 heroin was sold as a non-addictive substitute for morphine. It was also used to treat children suffering with a strong cough. Coco wine anyone? Metcalf's Coca Wine was one of a huge variety of wines with cocaine on the market. Everybody used to say that it would make you happy and it would also work as a medicinal treatment. Opium for asthma! At 40% alcohol plus 3 grams of opium per tablet. It didn't cure you... but you didn't care!

Cocaine tablets (1900). All stage actors, singers, teachers and preachers had to have them for a maximum performance. Great to 'smooth' the voice. Cocaine Drops for tootchache. Very popular for children in 1885. Not only did they relieve the pain, they made the children very happy! Opium for Newborns. I'm sure this would make them sleep well. (Not only the Opium, but also the 46% alcohol)! It's no wonder they were called, "The Good Old Days". From cradle to grave... everyone was STONED!

Rincon de la Victoria

10 kilometres east of Málaga in the far southwest corner of the Axarquía is the coastal resort of Rincon de la Victoria. Probably best known for its 9 kilometres of beaches and its Caves. It can boast that it has one of only three marine caves known in the world today and the only one of its kind in Europe! Once under the ocean these sea caves formed underwater galleries with gorges and columns known as Cueva del Tresoro. Don´t worry though, to visit the site nowdays you don´t have to put on your scuba diving equipment, the Treasure Cave has emerged above the sea and sits between the towns of La Cala del Moral and Rincon de la Victoria, dug into a hill of limestone from the Jurassic age high above the shore overlooking the Mediterranean. It has 500 metres of tunnels complete with remains of cave paintings, ceramics and

ries of buried treasure, gold and precious stones, as well as tales of gnomes, fairies, mermaids, goblins and elves. If this all sounds inviting, beware the ogres, giants, dragons and cyclops who are also rumoured to inhabit these caves, along with spirits who roam the labyrinthian corridors of rock, searching for the fabulous hidden treasure.

Away from this Jurassic Park and back down to the coast there is a seven mile stretch of promenade (Paseo Marítimo) with many beach bars, restaurants and beautiful sunsets. There is a church in the high street, a huge shopping centre just off the motorway, a golf course called Añoreta Golf, just off the N.340 at km 258 and even an International School, Colegio Rincon Añoreta, just off the road to Macharaviaya. items from the Neolithic stone industry as well as human and animal remains. There are sto-


All in all, a delightful corner of the Axarquía and well worth a visit!

After a while, the waitress brings the meal to him. He takes a bite out of the burger and notices a hair in it. He begins yelling frantically at the waitress and demands to see the kitchen.

He also attended UCLA School of Theatre, Film and Television. His first non-cinematic acting experience was in a school production of Golden Boy. Because of his family connection to Francis Ford Coppola, and to appear independent, he changed his name early in his career to Nicolas Cage, inspired in part by the Marvel Comics superhero Luke Cage. He tried out for the role of Dallas Winston in his uncle's film The Outsiders, based on S.E. Hinton's novel, but lost to Matt Dillon. Cage has been nominated twice for an Academy Award, winning once for his performance as a suicidal alcoholic in Leaving Las Vegas.

Tour Of Andalucia Last month, some 130 professional cyclists passed through our region. My wife and daughter went with me to Benamargosa to catch this event. We decided as they would be coming over the bridge and taking on the Cat 1 climb to Cutar/El Borge, that the best option for a great photo would be close to the bridge. As my daughter prepared herself to take a photo of the cyclists we did not realise that they would be going so fast ─ the Peloton was chasing the two guys who were almost three minutes ahead! WOOOOOOOOOSH! What gets you is the sound, the colour and the speed. I might be able to do this climb in 35/40mins; they will do it in less than 20. The tyres rumble as the riders fly by with just centimetres between them.

The Sentinella Tel: 664 210 468

The colours are extraordinary ─ we saw Team Astana in their vibrant torquoise blue shirts leading the Peloton, with Team Movistar in their dark blue. Valverde, the overall winner, stood out in the lead in his red shirt, while the Basque team, Euskaltel Euskadi, followed in bright orange. These slim, fit guys are machines, flying up the mountain at nearly 30kph. It was a pleasure to see them in action. Then the last man passed, obviously feeling how I normally do; we felt his pain, especially as he had another 35km and two more mountains to climb before he finished. Here's to the next race! Mario Reid, Los Romanes

If you like your films scary then this is definitely one to see! Mama is a story that delves into the pained soul of a mother who never got over the death of her infant.

The children are often found talking to an invisible entity whom they call ‘Mama.’ And it’s Mama who scares the pants off the viewer, scene after scene. Star Rating: ****/*****

A disturbed young man, affected by the financial crisis of 2008, shoots his wife and escapes into the forest with his two daughters — threeyear-old Victoria and toddler Lilly. The man (Jeffrey) plans to kill his children and commit suicide. However, at a particularly apt moment, a strange creature emerges from the shadows and kills him. Five years pass by and Jeffrey’s brother Lucas sends out a search party, which finds the girls. But by this time the two girls are more like an-

LT Construction Patios

pavers, concrete, stone, etc.

The outdoor patio of your home provides comfort and extends the floor space of all gardens. Whilst adding to the aesthetics of your garden, patios also create ambience and add value to any property.

At LT Construction, we encourage you to view the patio as an adjustable element of your garden that demands a creative approach. We can help you design a patio space that is divided up intelligently, using various elements such as raised beds, sunken beds and planting, etc. You can then escape the traditional blandness of the flat and generic patio which is commonly built.

There are many aspects to patio design and you should carefully decide in advance how to arrange the patio and its additional features. Consideration should be given to the positioning of elements such as the barbeque, lighting, seating and dining areas, as well as the pergola and raised or sunken flowerbeds, for example. The materials used in the patio should mirror or complement the materials used in the home. Continuity from interior to exterior spaces can be achieved with material links such as: bricks,

If you are looking for a fresh approach and feel that your old patio requires a little inspiration, we are the people to help. Visit our website at to see examples of patio design or contact Lee Talbot on 695 324 586 for your free consultation.

Cright, b , g r. on olou r t as c

It originally meant the colour of the Kermes dye produced from a scale insect, Kermes vermilio, but the name is now also used as a generic term for slightly reddish-blue colours that are between red and rose. Besides crimson itself, these colours include carmine, raspberry, ruddy, ruby, amaranth, and cerise.

The word crimson has been recorded in English since 1400, and its earlier forms include cremesin, crymysyn and cramoysin (cf. a cramoisy, crimson cloth). These were adapted via Old Spanish from the Medieval Latin cremesinus (also kermesinus or carmesinus), derived from the Kermes. The Crimson Sunbird is the national bird of Singapore.

The colour was very common for casual clothing in ancient Roman culture; they called the colour purple.

The King's Royal Hussars still wear crimson trousers as successors to the 11th Hussars (the "Cherrypickers").

Crimson (NR4) is produced using the dried bodies of the kermes insect, which were gathered commercially in Mediterranean countries, where they live on the Kermes oak, and sold

Rhubarb is sometimes poetically referred to as crimson stalk. The national colour of Nepal is crimson.

) : a h a h s e k o J A police officer pulls over a speeding car. The officer says, ' I clocked you at 110 mph, sir.' The driver says, 'Christ, officer I had it on cruise control at 70, perhaps your radar gun needs calibrating.' Not looking up from her knitting the wife says: 'Now don't be silly dear, you know that this car doesn't have cruise control.' As the officer writes out the ticket, the driver looks over at his wife and growls, 'Can't you please keep your mouth shut for once?' The wife smiles demurely and says, 'You should be thankful your radar detector went off when it did.' As the officer makes out the second ticket for the illegal radar detector unit, the man glowers at his wife and says through clenched teeth, dammit woman, can't you keep your mouth shut?' The officer frowns and says, 'And I notice that you're not wearing your seat belt, sir. That's an automatic £40 fine.' The driver says, 'Yeah, well, you see officer, I had it on, but took it off when you pulled me over so that I could get my license out of my back pocket' The wife says, 'Now, dear, you know very well that you didn't have your seat belt on. You never wear your seat belt when you're driving.' And as the police officer is writing out the third ticket the driver turns to his wife and barks, 'Why don’t you keep your chuffin mouth shut!!?’ The officer looks over at the woman and asks, 'Does your husband always talk to you this way, Ma'am?’ 'Only when he's had a few drinks.' ---------------------------------------------------------------A man and a woman were sitting beside each other in the first class section of an airplane. The woman sneezed, took out a tissue, gently wiped her nose, then visibly shuddered for ten to fifteen seconds. The man went back to his reading. A few minutes later, the woman sneezed again, took a tissue, wiped her nose, then shuddered violently once more.

Assuming that the woman might have a cold, the man was still curious about the shuddering. A few more minutes passed when the woman sneezed yet again. As before, she took a tissue, wiped her nose, her body shaking even more than before. Unable to restrain his curiosity, the man turned to the woman and said, "I couldn't help but notice that you've sneezed three times, wiped your nose and then shuddered violently. Are you OK?" “I am sorry if I disturbed you, I have a very rare medical condition; whenever I sneeze I have an orgasm." The man, more than a bit embarrassed, was still curious. "I have never heard of that condition before" he said. "Are you taking anything for it?" The woman nodded, "Snuff." ------------------------------------------------------------A woman was very distraught at the fact that she had not had a date or any sex in quite some time. She was afraid she might have something wrong with her, so she decided to seek the medical expertise of a sex therapist. Her doctor recommended that she see the well known Chinese sex therapist Dr. Chang. So she went to see him. Upon entering the examination room Dr. Chang said 'OK take off all your crose.' The woman did as she was told. 'Now get down and craw reery, reery fass to odderside of room.' Again the woman did as she was instructed. Dr. Chang then said 'OK, now craw reery, reery fass back to me.' So she did. Dr.Chang shook his head slowly and said, 'Your probrem vewy bad. You haf Ed Zachary disease. Worse case I ever see. Dat why you not haf sex or dates.' Worried the woman asked anxiously, 'Oh my God Dr.Chang what is Ed Zachary Disease?' Dr. Chang sighed deeply and replied, 'Ed Zachary Disease is when your face look Ed Zachary like your arse.'

Jokes h a h a :) The Greek Lover, a virile middle aged Greek gentlemen named Steve was relaxing at his favourite bar in Athens when he managed to attract a spectacular young blond woman. Things progressed to the point where he led her back to his apartment and, after some small talk, they retired to his bed room where he rattled her senseless. After a pleasant interlude, he asked with a smile, "So, you finish?" She paused for a second, frowned, and replied. "No." Surprised, Steve reached for her and the rattling resumed. This time she thrashed about wildly and there were screams of passion. The sex finally ended and, again, he smiled and asked, "You finish?" Again, after a short pause, she returned his smile, cuddled closer to him and softly said, "No." Stunned, but damned if he was going to leave this woman unsatisfied, Steve reached for the woman yet again. Using the last of his strength, he barely managed it, but they ended together screaming, bucking, clawing and ripping the bed sheets. Exhausted, Steve fell onto his back, gasping. Barely able to turn his head, he looked into her eyes, smiled proudly and asked again, "You finish?" Barely able to speak, the beautiful blonde whispered in his ear... "No, I Norwegian." ------------------------------------------------------------My wife was watching a cooking show the other day. I said, "What are you watching that for? You can't cook." She replied, "Well, you watch porn." ------------------------------------------------------------A man wakes up one morning to find a bear on his roof. So he looks in the yellow pages and sure enough, there’s an ad for “Bear Removers.” He calls the number, and the bear remover says he’ll be over in 30 minutes.The bear remover arrives and gets out of his van. He has a ladder, a baseball bat, a shotgun and a mean old dog.“What are you going to do,” the homeowner asks....

“I’m going to put this ladder up against the roof, then I’m going to go up there and knock the bear off the roof with this baseball bat. When the bear falls off, the dog is trained to grab his private parts and not let go. The bear will then be subdued enough for me to put him in the cage in the back of the van.”He then hands the shotgun to the homeowner.“What’s the shotgun for?” asks the homeowner.“If the bear knocks me off the roof, shoot the dog. ------------------------------------------------------------In hindsight I should have posted my Facebook status as: "I've blown the head gasket on my 1997 XR3i" rather than "I've just buggered a 14 year old Escort". The police still haven't seen the funny side, my lap top's been confiscated and the wife has gone off to her mum's. ------------------------------------------------------------Condoms don't guarantee safe sex! A friend of mine was wearing one when he was shot dead by the woman's husband! ------------------------------------------------------------Due to the current economic crisis, Greece is cancelling all production of Humus and Taramasalata. It's a double dip recession.

Saint Stevie the Scouse section A scouser walked into the local job centre, marched straight up to the counter and said 'Hi, I'm looking for a job'.

You'll have to drive around in a big black Mercedes and wear the uniform provided. The hours are a bit long but the meals are provided. You also have to escort the young ladies on their Overseas holidays. The Salary package is £200,000 a year'. The Scouser said 'You're bull*******g me!'

1. Three brothers share a family sport: a nonstop marathon. The oldest one is fat and short and trudges slowly on. The middle brother's tall and slim and keeps a steady pace. The youngest runs just like the wind speeding through the race. He's young in years, we let him run, the other brothers say, 'Cause though he's surely number one, he's second, in a way. Who are they? 2. Two brothers were watching a horror film on video late one night. One brother dozed off and dreamed that he was being chased by the crazy man from the movie, who was trying to kill him. In the dream, he hid in a cupboard. There was no sound except his heart pounding, and he had no idea where his crazed captor was. He was terrified! At that moment, the video finished, and his brother put his hand on the shoulder of his sleeping sibling to wake him. The shock at that tense moment was enough that the sleeping brother suffered a massive heart attack and died instantly. True or false?

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of ARIES: March 21-April 20 Partnerships are likely to be under pressure for the first five days of April but, although the cause won´t entirely disappear, things will return to normal shortly. An event of significance, when you least expect anything, brings optimism and happiness.

TAURUS: April 21-May 21

Work figures highly this month, with promotion or new responsibilities indicated. Try to avoid using it to escape other pressures. Singles may find love through a business trip.

GEMINI: May 22-June 21

Keep an eye on your budget this month and avoid being tempted by friends, or a new love interest, into spending what you can´t afford! Take care also not to take refuge in over-indulgence.

CANCER: June 22-July 22

Seize invitations to make one or several short trips and make the best use of the time in being productive. Family problems will be resolved.

LEO: July 23-August 23

Romance is positively aspected in April, for single and married Leos alike. Indulge in the love and affection that comes your way. Say yes to that candlelit dinner. A trip away is best temporarily postponed.

VIRGO: August 24-September 22

Lack of motivation means April begins slowly for Virgo but improves in leaps and bounds towards the last week as negativity is shed. For your health, maintain a routine of walking or other physical exercise.

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22

Its important to think before taking action this month or you risk a situation that can´t be retracted. Challenge anyone you suspect to be insincere and you will be delighted with the results.

SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21

Take extra care of your health this month to avoid food poisoning and ´flu-like illnesses. Your emotions are close to the surface and need checking.

SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21

For best solutions to challenges that arise this month, you need to be independent, swift and creative in taking action. During the latter part of April, increased opportunities for personal growth are presented.

CAPRICORN: December 22-January 20

A good time for Capricorns to pursue your dreams and plan for the future. Problems are overcome, as if by magic, though beware of petty jealousies from others.

AQUARIUS: January 21-February 19

The best therapy for your mind and body this month is to philosophically accept the changes that lie ahead and the various events that will leave footprints for years to come.

PISCES: February 20-March 20

Your anxieties are unfounded and lead you to imagine doubt where none should exist. A good time to study or learn a new skill and to avoid ephemeral romance.

Sail The Costa Tropical Quite possibly the most fun day out on the Costa Tropical, quite probably a trip that will remain in your memory forever and most definitely the best value excursion you will ever go on! Sailing aboard the good ship, “Optimist of London” is something that just cannot be missed this Spring.. Sailing these shores for the past 6 years from the Marina del Este in La Herradura (20 minutes east of Nerja) and endorsed by the Granada Tourist Board, “Optimist of London” is a 45 foot fin-keel cutter rigged Bermudian Sloop, that has sailed across the Atlantic twice, cruised the Caribbean and now explores the hidden coves of the stunning Costa Tropical coast. Skippered by friendly captain Stephen and his crew, “Optimist of London” takes to the seas again this month after a break during the winter months. Boasting two brand new sails and perfectly ship shape for the Spring/Summer season, The Optimist can be chartered for half day or full day trips or even longer excursions to Gibraltar, Morocco and the Balearics! The yacht is fully licensed and insured and is fitted with all safety equipment and every facility to make your trip as comfortable as possible, including toilets, showers, large open

decks with upholstered cushions and a spacious interior with luxurious saloon, galley and 2 state-rooms, one with a queen-sized 2-poster bed and a bathroom... yes, it even has a bath onboard! Everyone is welcome... children and adults alike, non-sailors and salty old sea dogs... all ages can enjoy the experience of sailing a round-the-World ocean going yacht, safe in the knowledge of being cared for at all times by the professional skipper and his crew. When it comes to fun in the sun there is no better value for money, then a trip on “Optimist of London” it is unbeatable! Priced from just 45€ per person, inclusive of complimentary chilled bubbly, fresh fruit and nibbles on departure, beers and wines throughout the trip, and a plentiful and varied gourmet buffet meal served at anchor. You can choose to just chill out on the sun decks and admire the stunning views of the beautiful coastline or you can take a ride in the yacht’s high-speed rib, enjoy snorkelling, swimming, waterskiing or skimming across the surface of the calm seas on the thrilling donut! For a unique sailing experience, to view the spectacular coast line and a chance to spot dolphins too, sailing aboard “Optimist of London” is an incredible value indulgence that you will never forget!
