This month I’m going to talk about the internet, specially the social media craze swamping the world via websites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and Linked In. If you have a business (yes, even a small or new business) now’s the time to think about how you can monetise it through the use of social media and the internet in general. The entire world market has opened up since the introduction of the internet in the 1980s. People are able to inform others about their business with the click of a button, even if they live on the other side of the world. With every year that passes, it becomes easier and easier to take advantage of the internet and boost your income, dramatically in many cases. Social networking sites are by far the most effective place to start, as they’re not only free and fun to use, but once you’ve been shown the key steps, it’s a simple method to employ. In fact, even a five-year-old child could follow along….it really is that simple! Recently, as some of you may know, I set up a writing and publishing business called The Word Queen. I’ve been using some tried and tested internet secrets to gain global interest and I’m happy to say that my efforts have paid off and the results are phenomenal. Every other day I get new clients on board, to help improve their books, coach them through the book-writing journey, improve their marketing efforts, or consider their manuscripts for publication.

From The Ed (cont)

Now I’d like to help readers and advertisers of The Sentinella do the same with their businesses. If you’d like to take advantage of a free phone conversation to see whether I can help your business take its monthly income through the roof, please email: with 'free phone call' in the subject line. I’m not suggesting that my plan will work for every business that exists, but it’ll certainly provide extra income for many. And if you happen to be an expert in a particular field (even if that field happens to be your favourite hobby) then you qualify too. You don’t need to operate a ‘business’ as such. However, as there’s only one of me, I’m only able to work with a select few people at any one time. This means I have to be brutally honest and choose to work with only those who I KNOW will benefit the most. So send me an email, we’ll arrange a phone chat at a mutually convenient time, and I’ll follow-up with a report to let you know if and how I’m able to help. Imagine if this time next year you're earning an extra 500€, 1,000€ or even 5,000€ plus a month? Worth a quick email? You decide! To your success

Strange News Seagull who thinks he’s a cat! A confused seagull is having an identity crisis - apparently believing that he is a cat. Mr Pooh was adopted by June and Steve Grimwood after he fell down their chimney as a baby. They decided to rear him themselves. Mr Grimwood, 52, said the couple's three cats were extremely wary of the new arrival at first. However, he added, it wasn't long before Mr Pooh was happily eating cat food out of a bowl with them. Since then the now three-year-old gull has become firm friends with felines Mitzi, Gus and Henry. Mr Pooh has now flown the coop, setting up home with a female on the Grimwood's roof. However, he returns to visit his human and feline friends three times a day - at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Drunk driving, a lawn mower An Iowa man ended up in jail after he was pulled over for driving on a motorway at night with no lights - on a lawn mower. Robert Grimstad, 38, was allegedly driving all over Highway 17, near Des Moines, when he was stopped by sheriff's deputies. He told police officers that he was out on his lawn mower picking up cans out of community spirit. But officers smelt alcohol on his breath, gave him a blood test and charged him with drink driving. Boone County Sheriff Ron Fehr says it's illegal in Iowa to drive any kind of motor vehicle anywhere in Iowa while drunk. Sheriff Fehr was unable to confirm how fast Grimstad was going: "I don't know," he said. "How fast can a lawn mower go?" Speedy cube stunt A Rubik's cube expert has pulled off his most amazing feat yet - solving two of the puzzles inside a shark tank. David Calvo, 24, solved both cubes one-handed simultaneously while sharing the tank with six sharks. He completed the puzzles in just 76 seconds as he sat on the bottom of the tank at the Terra Natura Park in Benidorm, Spain. "I found I was very focused on getting it done as quickly as possible - I wasn't very keen on hanging around," he said.

Celebrity Snippets

Another batch of wise, or not so wise, words from the mouths of celebs...

Ah, yes, divorce, from the Latin word meaning to rip out a man's genitals through his wallet. Robin Williams Women complain about premenstrual syndrome, but I think of it as the only time of the month that I can be myself. Roseanne Women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place. Billy Crystal You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, "My God, you're right! I never would've thought of that!" Dave Barry According to a new survey, women say they feel more comfortable undressing in front of men than they do undressing in front of other

women. They say that women are too judgmental, where, of course, men are just grateful. J Lo I am not the boss of my house. I don't know how I lost it. I don't know when I lost it. I don't think I ever had it. But I've seen the boss's job and I don't want it. Bill Cosby There's a new medical crisis. Doctors are reporting that many men are having allergic reactions to latex condoms. They say they cause severe swelling. So what's the problem? Jay Leno Instead of getting married again, I'm going to find a woman I don't like and give her a house. Lewis Grizzard If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten. George Carlin

Universal Truths Every one so so true.... 1) Triangular sandwiches taste better than square ones. 2) At the end of every party there is always a girl crying. (Usually me)! 3) One of the most awkward things that can happen in a pub is when your pint-to-toilet cycle gets synchronised with a complete stranger. 4) Sharpening a pencil with a knife makes you feel really manly. 5) You're never quite sure whether it's against the law or not to have a fire in your back garden. 6) Nobody ever dares make cup-a-soup in a bowl.

7) You never know where to look when eating a banana. 8) You always feel a bit scared when stroking horses. 9) The smaller the monkey the more it looks like it would kill you at the first given opportunity. 10) Every bloke has at some stage while taking a pee, flushed half way through and then raced against the flush. 11) Its impossible to look cool whilst picking up a Frisbee. 12) Driving through a tunnel makes you feel excited. 13) Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

Linea Directa Who can drive my car?

prehensive car insurance.

Many drivers often ask themselves who exactly can drive their car if their motor insurance is only in their name. The answer to this question depends on which company you are covered with as not all insurers will cover you if an accident occurs when another person other than the policy holder is driving the car.

In the case of an accident, the car would be covered as if you, the policy holder, were driving it. And once again, the only exception is that any driver under 26 years of age must be stipulated under the “Special Conditions” section.

In fact, many insurance companies only cover those that are stipulated in the policy or “Certificate of Motor Insurance”. Thus, if anyone else is driving your vehicle such as members of your family or even your partner or spouse, both they and you need to be aware that they may not be covered in the event of an accident. However, if you have motor insurance with Línea Directa, any person that you have given permission to drive your car (regardless of whether they are a named-driver on your policy or not) can be safe in the knowledge that they will be covered for any eventuality. Nevertheless, as with all policies, there are some exceptions. Anyone driving your car must be at least 26 years of age and hold a valid driving licence that permits them to drive legally here in Spain. Unlike with other insurers, Línea Directa policy holders also need not worry about how many years the driver that is using their car has been a licence holder. In the same manner, they also need not worry about a collision caused by this person (who is not a named-driver on the policy), as Línea Directa will still cover any damage regardless of who was driving the vehicle at the time. What’s more, these benefits are available with both third party liability and fully com-

Drivers of this age and younger, however, can still obtain car insurance with Línea Directa Aseguradora, which has a specialised department that deals with younger drivers, their questions and doubts. They too can purchase a motor insurance policy that is tailored to their needs – and again, at fantastic prices that are amongst the best on the market. Without a doubt, Spain’s largest direct line insurance provider, Línea Directa, offers an unparalleled service to all of its customers regardless of age or nationality – and offers cover at really unbeatable prices. It is also particularly committed to offering an excellent service to its expatriate customers by not only providing ALL documentation and services in English, but its highly trained team of professionals are always available to carry out all procedures as smoothly and as quickly as possible.

To find out more about Línea Directa and its comprehensive and very competitive motor insurance policies, call 902 123 104.

New Sponsorship Deal The Football Association has proudly unveiled Total, FCUK and UPS as the new sponsors of the England football team. 'The combination of these three corporate giants perfectly captures the ethos of the England side,' said an FA spokesman. 'After all, they had nothing in the tank when it counted, and they've proved themselves to be a bunch of expensive posers who always fail to deliver.' The announcement followed the news that Nationwide Building Society would be ending its sponsorship of the national side after the FA rejected its pre-World Cup offer of a new ÂŁ20m deal. 'Not so cocky now, are you?' said Nationwide in a prepared statement yesterday. Pundits noted that if the FA followed Nationwide's advice, it would be the second time in a fortnight that England had been laid wide open at the back. The new shirts come in a range of bright

'easy to spot' colours after claims from England players that the old kit was painted in 'magic invisible ink' which made it impossible to pick out an easy and obvious pass to a team mate. The new shirts are also made of a super lightweight material, unlike the old tops which were apparently made of extra-heavy chain mail which left the Premiership stars lumbering around looking exhausted and unfit. However, one criticism has been made of the design of the new England kit with claims that the neck hole was inexplicably too small for the heads of the Premiership stars. Players say this will make it very hard to pull the shirt off during an over-exuberant goal celebration, but a spokesman for the manufacturers said 'we don't envisage this being a problem.'

More Than Just A Game

(You'll never look at the game the same way again!)

Starting in 1941, an increasing number of British Airmen found themselves as the involuntary guests of the Third Reich, and the Crown was casting about for ways and means to facilitate their escape... Now obviously, one of the most helpful aids to that end is a useful and accurate map, one showing not only where stuff was, but also showing the locations of 'safe houses' where a POW on-the-lam could go for food and shelter.

silk. It's durable, can be scrunched-up into tiny wads, and unfolded as many times as needed, and makes no noise whatsoever. At that time, there was only one manufacturer in Great Britain that had perfected the technology of printing on silk, and that was John Waddington, Ltd. When approached by the government, the firm was only too happy to do its bit for the war effort.

Paper maps had some real drawbacks -they make a lot of noise when you open and fold them, they wear out rapidly, and if they get wet, they turn into mush.

By pure coincidence, Waddington was also the U.K. Licensee for the popular American board game, Monopoly. As it happened, 'games and pastimes' was a category of item qualified for insertion into 'CARE packages', dispatched by the International Red Cross to prisoners of war.

Someone in MI-5 (similar to America 's OSS ) got the idea of printing escape maps on

More Than just A Game (Continued) the grounds of Waddington's, a group of sworn-to-secrecy employees began massproducing escape maps, keyed to each region of Germany or Italy where Allied POW camps were regional system. When processed, these maps could be folded into such tiny dots that they would actually fit inside a Monopoly playing piece. As long as they were at it, the clever workmen at Waddington's also managed to add: 1. A playing token, containing a small magnetic compass 2. A two-part metal file that could easily be screwed together 3. Useful amounts of genuine high-denomination German, Italian, and French currency, hidden within the piles of Monopoly money! British and American air crews were advised, before taking off on their first mission, how to identify a 'rigged' Monopoly set -- by

means of a tiny red dot, one cleverly rigged to look like an ordinary printing glitch, located in the corner of the Free Parking square. Of the estimated 35,000 Allied POWS who successfully escaped, an estimated onethird were aided in their flight by the rigged Monopoly sets.. Everyone who did so was sworn to secrecy indefinitely, since the British Government might want to use this highly successful ruse in still another, future war. The story wasn't declassified until 2007, when the surviving craftsmen from Waddington's, as well as the firm itself, were finally honored in a public ceremony. It's always nice when you can play that 'Get Out of Jail' Free' card! Some of you are (probably) too young to have any personal connection to WWII (Dec. '41 to Aug. '45), but this is still interesting.

Random Joke A rich man living in Darwin decided that he wanted to throw a party and invited all of his buddies and neighbours’. He also invited Colin, the only aborigine in the neighbourhood. He held the party around the pool in the backyard of his mansion. Everyone was having a good time drinking, dancing, eating prawns, oysters, BBQ and flirting. At the height of the party, the host said, 'I have a 15ft man-eating crocodile in my pool and I'll give a million dollars to anyone who has the balls to jump in.' The words were barely out of his mouth when there was a loud splash and everyone turned around and saw Colin in the pool fighting the croc, jabbing the croc in the eyes with his thumbs, throwing punches, doing all kinds of stuff like head butts and chokeholds, biting the croc on the tail and flipping the croc through the air like some kind of Judo Instructor. The water was churning and splashing everywhere. Both Colin and the

croc were screaming and raising hell. Finally Colin strangled the croc and let it float to the top like a dead goldfish. Colin then slowly climbed out of the pool. Everybody was just staring at him in disbelief. The host says, 'Well, Colin, I reckon I owe you a million dollars.' 'Nah, you all right boss, I don't want it,' said Colin. The rich man said, 'Man, I have to give you something. You won the bet. How about half a million bucks then?' 'No thanks. I don't want it,' answered Colin. The host said, 'Come on, I insist on giving you something. That was amazing. How about a new Porsche and a Rolex and some Stock options? Again, Colin said "No." Confused, the rich man asked, 'Well Colin, then what do you want? Colin said, 'I just want the bastard who pushed me in.'

Author Interview I interviewed author, Pamela Abel-Smith, about her children’s book, Little Ed & The Rise of Grimehog, which is published by me, The Word Queen (see advert below)! why did you decide to write this book? I decided to write the book to help our grandson Eddie enjoy reading. Can you describe the book in a couple of sentences? The book is a story about three children who make friends with the gnomes in Gnomeland. The children help the gnomes, through magical stones by getting rid of a horrid goblin, who is making their lives miserable. what kind of people do you think will enjoy reading your book? It was written for a child, but all ages from 6 to 80 have read and enjoyed it. what reader feedback have you had so far?

So far I have received great comments about all three books from children and adults alike. have you plans to write any more books? I have already written two other books and I’m now on the fourth one. They are all about Little Ed and his friends. Little Ed & The Rise Of Grimehog is now available on, or log on to for more info about Pamela and her book.

Lúkuma - Torre del Mar The rebirth of an original concept. LÚKUMA Discover items from seven to seven hundred euros at Lúkuma...! These young, multi-cultural entrepreneurs in Torre del Mar, aim to provide a wide range of goods - fashion clothing, jewellery and accessories - at attractive prices for clientèle who are on the look-out for something a bit different. what makes you different? Well, since we started five years ago with our shop on the Paseo de Larios, and Ellie almost ten years ago in Pink Flamenco, Nerja, we've always focused on exclusive items at prices that won't break the bank. In other words, whatever your budget, you'll find original products at a reasonable price. For example, we sell Spanish and French fashion goods, which are a bit different from those available in large retail chains. how's business in LÚkUMa? We can't complain. There are customers in the Torre del Mar region with excellent taste and dress sense. We also benefit from tourism and as business continues well into the evening, and the nightlife on the Paseo de Larios is lively, we stay open to around midnight. Besides working with brands, you have created your own signature in jewellery, Ñusta Beads. is it not risky in these times? Yes it is, but we're confident that our cus-

tomers love Ñusta. Our strength is the quality and our prices, which are lower than other charms, beads and bracelets. We have many sales outlets such as franchises throughout the Costa del Sol. Music is important in your shop. why? Music creates a pleasant ambiance and provides good energy. On the Paseo Larios in Torre del Mar, Lúkuma is part of a leisure environment with nearby cafés, bars, chill out terraces, ice cream parlours, bars, pubs and restaurants. In fact you can spend the whole day here. So yes, music is very important to the Lúkuma image. are your prices affordable? Of course! We have articles and accessories for any budget, from a bracelet of 5€ up to bracelets for 500€. Our more affluent customers are also looking for casual clothes, shoes and jewellery, so reasonable prices do not mean that quality suffers. We also realise that although our strong sales period is in the summer, our most faithful customers are local residents. what are the new trends? We've imported silver from Turkey, fashion bracelets and sarongs from Bali and bags and clothes from France. Our aim is to tap into products from various countries, so we travel frequently to keep abreast of the latest trends. That is the great pleasure of working in the fashion industry and if you visit Lúkuma you'll have always a new experience. See main advert opposite.

Naranja – This is an orange and hopefully a juicy one! Zumo de naranja is translated as ‘orange juice’. Or if you want the freshly squeezed variety ask for ‘nat-ur-al’ Nata – There are a few types of nata in the supermarkets so it’s important that you know which is which. Nata liquida is single cream, but check the carton to make sure it’s not the variety used for cooking purposes. The image on the carton should give the game away. If you see a chicken then you’ll know it’s for cooking, not to eat with a slice of cake! Nata montada is whipping cream and this is

always used for desserts. You can eat it as it comes, or whip it up into a thicker consistency. Have fun! Natillas – Custard and one of those tiresome desserts that there’s just no escaping from here in Spain! I’m always shocked that the Spanish eat custard cold. They don’t seem to ‘get’ the idea of hot custard, although my boyfriend’s Spanish and since we met he loves eating it hot with mince pies at Christmas time! Nectarina – See if you can guess…yes, a nectarine! Nueces – These are nuts. Nueces de California are typically walnuts, but as for nueces in general it applies to all nuts, or should I say all edible ones!

LT Construction I was growing a little bored with my old advert, as I’m sure many of my clients were, so I thought it was time to update it to reflect the changes in our in-house expertise and the market in general. It seemed apparent that many of the General Public were confused as to what a Landscaper does. This isn’t helped by the fact that a lot of jobbing gardeners advertise themselves as ‘Landscapers’. A comment by some people in the past has been, “I didn’t know you did building work”, which left me feeling a little surprised! My house is situated north of the lake at La Viñuela. Most of the houses surrounding mine have been affected this winter by slipped banks, collapsed retaining walls and in the worst case, the whole house moved. The fact that my house and land has not moved is no accident!¡ A ‘Landscape Gardener’ covers many disciplines, starting from a consultation with the client to obtain the basic idea of the project, moving on to the design stage, project management and project completion.

The projects normally start with the hard landscaping. This can cover many different building requirements, from retaining walls, drainage, driveways, terracing, patios, stairs, pergolas, garages and casitas. This stage can often involve electrics as well as pumping for septic tanks, water deposits and irrigation systems. The final stage is the soft landscaping, i.e. planting. There is less of a need for this now, as most of the houses in our area have mature gardens. The benefit of using a true Landscaper over a General Builder is that we come from a design background, as well as having an understanding of how the land is structured. The aesthetics of the house and garden are taken into consideration as well as best practice in regard to building specifications. The emphasis with my business now is more towards construction, as this is the area for which I receive the majority of enquiries. Please contact me if you would like to discuss any of the above or visit our new website for additional information.

In many countries of the world donkeys are used as the preferred mode of transport. Donkeys can live for over 50 years. A donkey is stronger than a horse of the same size. Donkeys have an incredible memory - they can recognise areas and other donkeys they were with up to 25 years ago. Donkeys have a reputation for stubbornness but this is due to their highly developed sense of self preservation. It is difficult to

force or frighten a donkey into doing something it sees as contrary to its own best interest or safety. In the desert environment a donkey is able to hear the call of another donkey 60 miles away. They have far larger ears than horses, which help keep them cool. Donkeys don't like the rain and being out in it for long periods can damage their health, as their fur is not waterproof. Donkeys don't like being kept on their own although a single donkey will live quite happily with goats.

Beat The Heat With The Chringuito Night Market The chiringuito market in Puente Don Manuel is held every Friday between the hours of 10am to 1.30pm. There are more than 25 quality stalls selling a wide variety of items. On August 13th there will be a night market between the hours of 7pm until 10pm. This way you, the customer, can beat the heat and browse in comfort! There will be a range of stalls, offering items such as clothing, handmade jewellery, perfumes, arts and crafts, handmade cards, stationary, watches, items to keep you cool for the summer, handbags, cosmetics and much more.

If you fancy a bit of a sing song, then no problem! The lovely Katie (The English Rose) and her husband Baz, will rock the evening away. If you get a bit peckish whilst doing all that browsing, then guess what? We've got that covered as well! Rafael and the girls at the bar at Chiringuito Sakira will provide a selection of mouth-watering dishes for you to choose from at really great prices. So you see, there really is no excuse not to come and see what the fuss is all about! Put August 13th in your diary and we look forward to seeing you.

Tea Time Teasers

What would be your answers to these two teasing questions?

Question 1: If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids already, three who were deaf, two were blind, one mentally retarded and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion? Question 2: It is time to elect a new world leader and only your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three candidates. Candidate a: Associates with crooked politicians and consults with astrologists. He’s had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 Martinis a day. Candidate B: He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whisky every

Candidate C: He is a decorated war hero. He’s a vegetarian, doesn’t smoke, drinks an occasional beer and has never once committed adultery. Which of these candidates would be your choice to rule the world? Candidate A is Franklin D Roosevelt Candidate B is Winston Churchill Candidate C is Adolf Hitler And by the way, on your answer to the abortion question… If you said YES you recommend she has an abortion, you have just killed Beethoven. Maybe we should think a little more before judging someone!

Film iew Revipse l Ec

There’s just one word I can use to sum up the latest ‘Twilight’ movie ‘Eclipse’ and that is ‘yawwwwwn!” Seriously, how incredibly boring! Plot-wise it’s simply a repeat of the last two films, which stem from Stephanie Meyer’s bestselling books. As usual the main characters Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson) are wildly in love and as usual Bella’s Dad (a local policeman) expresses his obvious dis-

Bella has decided to be transformed into a vampire after her graduation, so that she can live happily ever after with Edward Cullen and family with no restrictions on their somewhat uneventful love life. But Edward has something else to worry about when he learns of a new clan of out-ofcontrol vampires are descending upon the town with the intention of slaying Bella. Jacob, the six pack bearing werewolf, represents the third corner in the love triangle between Edward and Bella and she openly admits that she loves them both. But isn’t it already obvious which one she chooses…? I’d advise you to use the 6€ you would have spent on the cinema ticket to buy a tub of ice cream or two and indulge in an ice cream feast. You’ll enjoy that much more! Star Rating - */***** MIxERS

Random Jokes Nothing going right? A little guy is sitting at the bar staring at his drink when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to him, grabs his drink and gulps it down in one swig. "Well, whatcha gonna do about it?" he says, menacingly, as the little guy bursts into tears. "Come on man," the biker says, "I didn't think you'd CRY. I can`t stand to see a man crying." "This is the worst day of my life," says the little guy. “I`m a complete failure. I was late to a meeting, and my boss fired me. When I went to the car park, I found my car stolen and I don't have any insurance. I left my wallet in the cab I took home. I found my wife in bed with the milkman and then my dog bit me. So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all. I buy a drink, drop the capsule in it and while I sit here watching the poison dissolve, a smart arse like you shows up and drinks the whole bloody thing!" ------------------------------------------------------Whether you own a dog or not, you must appreciate the efforts of this owner to sell her dog.

Grandchildren Out the mouths of babes.... 1. She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Granny, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye... 2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 62. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?" 3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience grew thin.. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-yearold say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?" 4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like: "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard.. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I wish I knew you sooner Grandma!!" 5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Granny, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied. 6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She

told him she was writing a story.. "What's it about?" he asked. "I don't know," she replied. "I can't read.." 7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colours yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what colour it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Nanny, I think you should try to figure out some of these, yourself!" 8. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure, look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised, "mine says I'm 4 to 6." 9. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool "That's interesting," she said, "how do you make babies?" "It's easy," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'.." 10. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to correct him.. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked. "Yep," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child." 11. My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over; you hear gas leaks, and they blame their dog.

Tips Wise words to be followed.... supermarkets Sell your undersized vegetables for twice the price by not clearing the crap off them and calling them organic. shoe Express customers Throw your purchases away and wear the boxes instead. They’ll be harder-wearing, more stylish and better-fitting. Birdwatchers Save hours sitting around waiting to see which species land on your bird table. Simply mix the food with rat poison and hey presto – dozens of birds laying around at the foot of the table for you to inspect and tick off in your book at leisure. window cleaners When agreeing a price with Dr. Who to clean the windows of the Tardis, don’t be conned

into agreeing to do the insides for the same price. hospital patients Arrive for your appointment two hours after the assigned arrival time. That way you will only have to wait an hour for your doctor to see you. homeless people Lighten your load by not buying a dog. Drivers If a car breaks down or stalls in front of you, beep your horn and wave your arms frantically. This should help the car start and send them on their way. Council highway departments Save money erecting warning signs on dangerous bends. Simply tape a bunch of flowers to a nearby lamp post instead.

Las Nenas Kennels Bente and Jorgen are a Danish couple, who apart from a 1 1/2 year stint in Denmark, have lived in Spain since May 2004. They previously let out holiday homes and they also owned a small Real Estate company. The husband and wife team have been running Las Nenas Kennels since November last year. "We felt there was the need for a kennel with the focus on dogs not just being left to themselves, but being played with, stimulated and exercised," said Jorgen. "As dog owners ourselves, we're aware that leaving your pet in another person’s hands is a matter of trust. It's important to us that a kennel owner has time to care and meet each dog’s individual needs, so the temporary break from the owner is as smooth as possible. That's exactly our aim. We believe the dog’s wellbeing is essential to the owner and ourselves, as much as it is to the dog itself."

Las Nenas Kennels is situated in the countryside between Canillas de Aceituno and Sedella, half an hour drive from the coast. It has eight spacious, individual kennels, one 'family size'. The kennels are protected from the sun and sheltered from heavy rain and wind. It also has a large, enclosed play area. "We walk the dogs at least three times a day and it's an ideal setting as there's hardly any traffic around at all," said Bente. "You're always welcome to contact us for an appointment or a viewing so we can chat about your dog’s needs”. Las Nenas offers very reasonable prices along with a discount on your first booking and a quantity discount. They also provide a collection and delivery service. Contact them on 646 271 895 or email

Random Joke Maude: What in the hell is that? Mabel: A condom. This way my cigarette doesn't get wet. Maude: Where did you get it? Mabel: You can get them at any drugstore. The next day, Maude hobbles herself into the local drugstore and announces to the pharmacist that she wants a box of condoms.

Two old ladies are outside their nursing home, having a drink and a smoke, when it starts to rain. One of the old ladies pulls out a condom, cuts off the end, puts it over her cigarette, and continues smoking.

The pharmacist, obviously embarrassed, looks at her kind of strangely (she is after all, over 80 years of age), but very delicately asks what brand of condom she prefers. 'Doesn't matter Sonny, as long as it fits on a Camel.' The pharmacist fainted.

Mind, Body & Spirit This month I’d like to address the theme of Mind-Body healing as a process; a journey rather than a 'one-off' event. I recently received the following question from someone who came to me for a healing session during which issues of suppressed physical and mental childhood abuse came to light. “Lots of thoughts and feelings have stirred up relating to the last healing session, but I don't know what to do with them all. Some of it's related to beliefs I've formed because of the verbal and emotional abuse, which has effected me a lot more than the physical abuse and I'm wondering how to change them. Also I now realise that when I'm feeling particularly down, I abuse myself in the same way that my abuser used to do to me, which obviously isnt very healthy. Is there anything I could do to help?� Firstly it's important to simply be with the emerging feelings (rather than suppressing them as before), and to do so with compassion; not judging, rationalising, or trying to do anything about them. Feelings are natural. By allowing them and staying in compassion they will naturally pass and change. Likewise the beliefs you formed about yourself back then. Witness them, observe how they have shaped your life and relationships, but don't feed them! Don't add more energy to them by dwelling on them or going into sympathy, or self-pity with them. Healing involves finding yourself in an old familiar inner territory and responding in a new way. Allow yourself to feel the energy behind the beliefs, then take the energy and put it into your new con-

sciously chosen beliefs about yourself. "I am good enough, I am a good person, I deserve love, kindness, etc." Above all, when you catch yourself about to repeat the abuse cycle by abusing yourself, choose out, and actively love yourself instead. Treat yourself lovingly, with understanding, compassion and support. Do something which positively reinforces the 'you' you are becoming / reclaiming. You may find the guided visualisations on my CD 'Heal Yourself' helpful, especially if you listen to them at times when you are feeling down. You can change the past! By retrospectively visualising yourself in situations where you were abused and replaying the scene as you would now want it - with you standing up for yourself, expressing your truth, reclaiming your power - not just your present experience of yourself is transformed, but also your perception of your past. Instead of repeating a vicious circle you embark on an upward cycle of self-empowerment and growth. Richard Waterborn has been a professional healer for the last 25 years. In that time he has witnessed many miracles of healing illnesses such as cancer, heart problems, chronic fatigue and depression. His work is based on the premise that all illnesses and mental/emotional conditions can be healed from within, by identifying the root causes and releasing negative energy at a cellular level. To book a session with Richard call 676 346 402, email:, or see his advert below.

) : a h a h s e k o J Shortly after a British Airways flight had reached its cruising altitude, the captain announced: 'Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your Captain.Welcome to Flight 293, non-stop from London Heathrow to Toronto. The weather ahead is good, so we should have a smooth uneventful flight. So sit back,relax and...... OH, MY GOD !' Silence followed! Some moments later the captain came back on the intercom. 'Ladies and gentlemen, I'm sorry if I scared you . While I was talking to you, a flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!' One Irish passenger yelled............ 'For f*#k's sake ......... you should see the back of mine!!!' ------------------------------------------------------A blonde female motorist was on her way to the Gold Coast when she was flagged down by a man on the side of the road whose truck had broken down. The man walked up to the car and asked, 'Are you going to the Gold Coast?' 'Sure,' answered the blonde, 'do you need a lift ?' 'Not for me. I'll be spending the next three hours fixing my truck. My problem is I've got two chimpanzees in the back which have to be taken to the Gold Coast Zoo. They're a bit stressed already so I don't want to keep them on the road all day. Could you possibly take them to the zoo for me ? I' ll give you $100 for your trouble.' 'I'd be happy to,' said the blonde. So the two chimpanzees were ushered into the back seat of the blonde's car and carefully strapped into their seat belts. Off they went. Five hours later, the truck driver was driving through the heart of the Gold Coast when

suddenly he was horrified!! There was the blonde walking down the street and holding hands with the two chimps, much to the amusement of a big crowd. With a screech of brakes he pulled off the road and ran over to the blonde. 'What the heck are you doing here ?' he demanded, 'I gave you $100 to take these chimpanzees to the zoo.' 'Yes, I know you did,' said the blonde,' but we had money left over - so now we're going to Sea World.’ ------------------------------------------------------A lady and baby go to the doctors, who is concerned about the baby´s weight. “Bottle or breast fed?” the doctor asked “Breast” replies the lady. The doctor asks the lady to strip to the waist and proceeds to massage her breasts, pinch her nipples and suck them. “No wonder the baby is underweight, you haven´t any milk!!” exclaims the doctor. “I know, I´m the baby´s granny, but I´m really glad I came!” ------------------------------------------------------A lawyer boarded an airplane in New Orleans with a box of frozen crabs and asked a blond stewardess to take care of them for him. She took the box and promised to put it in the crew's refrigerator. He advised her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, mentioning in a very haughty manner that he was a lawyer, and proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out. Needless to say, she was annoyed by his behavior. Shortly before landing in New York, she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin, "Would the lawyer who gave me the crabs, in New Orleans , please raise your hand.” Not one hand went up .... so she took them home and ate them.
