We’re well and truly into the summer and what better way to spend these sunny days than lying on the beach or around a refreshing pool?! Unfortunately this year I haven’t spent much time doing either of those pastimes mainly because I’m so busy putting together a new book called The Light which is due to launch this September! I’ll tell you more about that in future issues… it’s an exciting project and so I’m waking up every day and jumping out of bed almost immediately in order to start work! Luckily, I do enjoy frequent breaks away too, as it’s always important to rest and recharge the batteries. Last month I flew into Geneva to visit an elderly friend called Joseph, who lives just across the border, in Loisin, France. This man is absolutely incredible! He’s 96-years-old – looks no more than 70, and he spends his days tending to his beautiful gardens, writing books (he’s an international best-selling author), and making plans to one day transform his house into a sanctuary for disabled and disadvantaged children. He lives in the house with two of his grandchildren, a three-legged cat, another cat, a cheeky little dog, and a stream of frequent visitors, such as me! What inspires and interests me so much about him is that he has seen spirits since the age of four, and at that age he couldn’t tell the difference between them and real physically alive human beings. He said that sometimes he even struggles to tell the difference now! He is also one of the most humble people I have ever met. Despite his terrific success and the fact that he has met some of the most famous, and spiritually conscious people on the planet, he is aware that everything he has has simply been lent to him in God. He lives in total gratitude 24 hours a day and he is constantly saying “thank you” for his gifts. So there are a couple of lessons for all us right there...

Strange News

As you can imagine I flew back to Malaga with many amazing messages from spirit and a big smile plastered across my face. But I also took home a recipe which one of Joseph’s Chinese guides gave to him years ago. It’s a drink which promotes general good health and now I’m going to share it with you lovely readers…

Maid for TV - US government agency had to deny mermaids were real after people mistook a fictional TV show for a documentary. Viewers wrote to the National Ocean Service asking about the creatures after the broadcasting of “Mermaids: The Body Found” on the Discovery Channel's Animal Planet network. The National Ocean Service responded by posting an article on its educational website, Ocean Facts. It said that mermaids appeared in mythology and art, but stated: "No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found." The Discovery Channel acknowledged that the format of the show had led some viewers to believe it was a science education show.

Juice one to two oranges and one lemon into a glass. Grate a small chunk of fresh ginger and add that to the glass too. Dilute this mixture with a little water. Finally add five or six fresh cherries. Now drink and eat this formula… you may need to use a spoon! Having this every morning on an empty stomach is a good idea to remain looking and feeling your best. Try it and see! I feel so blessed to have friends such as Joseph who change people’s lives and who radiate Love and Light to all they meet. May the world be filled with more Josephs and may the recipe I have just shared help readers of The Sentinella to improve their health and stay young! Sending shiny happy sun rays to you all…

Snow fall - A Russian BASE jumper had a miraculous escape when snow cushioned his fall after his parachute failed to open. The young daredevil jumped off a 120 metre pylon while a friend made a video of the stunt which has been uploaded to YouTube. He is seen shuffling nervously towards the edge of the structure's platform before hurling himself into space. But his parachute does not open properly and a sickening thud can be heard as he hits the ground. Somehow, the man survived the fall but fractured his vertebrae, pelvis and legs. He is said to be walking again after a three-month recovery period. Wee chat - Talking urinals have been installed in US pubs as part of a campaign to cut down drink driving. Set off by a motion sensor, the gadget delivers a message warning pub-goers about the perils of driving under the influence. Customers are greeted with a message which begins: "Hey, listen up - that's right, I'm talking to you. "Have you had a few drinks, maybe a few too many? Do yourself and everyone else a favour and call a cab." The campaign was introduced in pubs in Michigan in a bid to cut down drink driving ahead of the Independence Day celebrations. The message ends with a friendly: "Oh, and by the way, don't forget to wash your hands."

De Cotta Law LEGAL Q & A. This month De Cotta Law, Nerja’s established firm of English Solicitors and Spanish Abogados offer answers to some of your legal questions. Q: i’ve always wanted a timeshare property in spain, so my family and i can enjoy cost effective and regular holidays here. the prices are very attractive at the moment but i am worried about miss-selling and getting caught up with a firm that isn’t legitimate. what can i do to protect myself? a: All the studies show that over 80% of people who own timeshare are satisfied or very satisfied with their ownership. Yet the miss-selling stories are usually those given the most coverage. Spain both regionally and locally has rules and laws on the selling and use of timeshares. You should be cautious if the company invites you to a lengthy presentation and then provides documents that refer to countries outside of Europe where the companies are not subject to European and Spanish legislation. You should always be given a cooling off period particularly where there is a consumer credit agreement. If you do pay a deposit by credit card you may be able to claim money back if there is miss-selling so always keep all the doc-

uments and receipts of any transaction. Q: we live in an apartment building in Nerja, but we’re having real problems with neighbours not paying the community fees needed to maintain the building, pool and gardens. some owners are in the Uk whilst other units remain unsold and the developer isn’t contributing. this is so unfair, but we’re told there is a 3 year delay before the court can take action! why is this and what can be done? A: It is true that court delays can be prejudicial to those people who pay their fees on time by allowing debts to increase and placing a heavy burden on the “good guys”. The time frame varies depending on the particular court but you can ask your lawyers to issue burofaxes promptly even if the debt is relatively low. Additional pressure can be put on the debtors if you have details of their addresses in the UK or other countries so that they receive notice effectively. The Spanish and UK courts in particular are working more quickly to issue claims on those resident outside the country. Developers who do become bankrupt are more of a problem but again it is important the Community is legally represented as a creditor. Q: we have rented out one of our properties in spain on a long term lease. the couple have been in the property for about two years, but for the last 4 months they haven’t paid the rent and won’t return emails or calls. we’ve been told that we can’t get a court date for 4 months despite a new law saying we can get an eviction date in less than 2 weeks! what should we do? A: Keep calm and carry on with the services of an experienced litigation lawyer! The new procedure allows the owner to apply to the court for eviction on failure to pay. The court will give the tenant 10 days in which to either leave the property voluntarily; pay the overdue rent or provide a defence to the eviction. The court will also give a specific date for the eviction and if the tenant fails to respond, pay the overdue rent or oppose the matter the eviction can take place with the assistance of the authorities. There are fixed timeframes in the law but it is true that there are occasions when the actual date for eviction is some months hence rather than weeks. Your lawyer is best placed to explain your particular circumstances and will be in direct contact with the court and the authorities on your behalf.

Purple was the colour of the first dye made by man. It was called "Mauveine" and was made out of coal tar. The recipe was discovered by William Henry Perkin in 1856. The purple in the U.S. military medal Purple Heart award represents courage; the medal is awarded to members of the United States armed forces who have been wounded in action. Leonardo da Vinci believed that the power of meditation increases ten times when done in a

purple light, as in the purple light of stained glass. In Tibet, amethyst is considered to be sacred to Buddha and rosaries are fashioned often from it. In Japan, the colour purple signifies wealth and position. Purple was the royal colour of the Caesars and the wearing — and even sale — of purple cloth by anyone else during Nero’s reign was punishable by death. Purple is the colour of the highest denomination poker chip = $5,000 Purple denotes virtue and faith in Egypt. Traditionally, in Iran, purple is a colour of what is to come. A sun or moon that looks purple during an eclipse is an omen of bloodshed within the year.

LÍNEA DIRECTA REPORTS ON THE NEW FRENCH LEGISLATION ON DRINK DRIVING From July 1st, all French drivers driving on roads in France must carry a breathalyser kit in their cars. The measure, announced by the previous government, was due to take effect four months ago, but the rush to buy the kits has led to supplies being sold out, which has led to a moratorium on the introduction of the devices. According to the French authorities, the regulation, the first of its kind to be introduced in the European Union, will also affect foreign drivers who drive in France, although they will not be required to have the device installed in their vehicles until November. In addition, breathalysers will also be obligatory in all discotheques and bars which have a licence to open at night. By implementing this law, the French government hopes to save 500 lives a year, due to the presence of alcohol being detected in almost a third of all fatal accidents occurring in France. In addition to this regulation, the French authorities have approved a packet of measures aimed at reducing the accident rate on roads, which include: •

An increase on the road network in the number of fixed speed cameras to 2,500, which will not be signposted.

The introduction of new generation mobile speed cameras, which allow a travelling police car to measure speed.

All motorists must carry a high-visibility vest and a warning triangle.

Massage Amanda, the Sports Remedial Massage Therapist at The Hair & Beauty Studio, Puente don Manuel, has another string to her bow.... Amanda has been practising Remedial Therapy for 14 years, qualified in Sports exercise & Physiology from the University of Birmingham to 2:1 Hons degree level & specified in Sports Massage Therapy RSA (a total of 4 years training) ranging from Sciatic problems, trapped nerves & all soft tissue injuries. She has helped many people including The British Olympic Windsurfers, is fully insured and up to date with all the new techniques including Soft Tissue Release, Trigger Point Release, Neuro-Muscular Release and Active & Passive Stretching. She has recently acquired a new tool, The G5 GBM Massage Machine. This has been widely used by physios for years alongside the “hands on” deep tissue massage. It is a powerful hand held device incorporating powerful mechanical vibrations applied to and in turn transmitted through and into the body. The GBM method consists in the application of vibratory waves

ranging from 15 CPS to 55 CPS (infrasounds). Amanda has relieved my back pains a few times, so when I heard she had a new tool for even deeper massaging, I had to have a go!

The G5 GBM She says it’s used in combination with a massage so she pinpointed where a bit of tightness was at the top of my back then placed the G5 over that area and then “arrrgghh!!!” That thing went deep but after the initial shock it soon felt good and in just a few minutes my shoulders had relaxed and I felt ‘refreshed, supple and ready to go.’ The G5 is certainly an excellent addition to Amanda’s armoury ensuring she stays the “Best in the Business” See advert on pages 10 & 11

Thousands of species of fish and other marine life inhabit our oceans, but one which never fails to fascinate is the eel, a large family group whose members range from the harmless to the lethal. There are more than 400 species of eels in the world. Eels occupy both saltwater and fresh water habitats. Although eels look like snakes, they are fish and come from the order Anguilliformes. Eels can travel on land for short distances.

Most species of eels act as ambush predators, hiding in rocky crevices or reefs, or burrowing under mud or sand. The longfin eel, so-named because its dorsal (top) fin is longer than its bottom fin, is probably the biggest eel in the world. Slow growing and sometimes living for 80 years, some females can reach 2 metres long and weigh up to 40kg. Eels start life as transparent larva and remain in that state for 6 – 12 months. The eel can swim forwards as well as backwards.

Amazing Marine Life (Continued) and humans.

The Moray is perhaps the most wellknown eel with more than 100 species octropical cupying oceans worldwide. They are nocturnal hunters which prey on other eels, fish and molluscs.

A Moray is not intentionally aggressive, but cannot always distinguish between potential food and a diver’s curious fingers. Morays have the ability to tie their bodies in knots and use this to gain leverage when tearing food.

Morays have poor hearing and eyesight, but a keen sense of smell.

Electric eels are not true eels at all. They are knifefish.

Many eel species are toxic to humans. Morays have many backward sharp, curving teeth and can inflict serious wounds on both their prey

Moray eels generally reach 5 feet in length, but a species inhabiting the Pacific Ocean can grow to lengths of 10 feet.

Luxury Yacht Charter So you are bored of the beach, tired of the pool, had your fill of tapas and want to do something a little different this Summer? Then read on! Quite possibly the most fun day out to be had 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 Summer. Sailing these shores for the past five 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” sails three times a day or can be chartered for 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 very

spacious interior with luxurious saloon, galley and 2 staterooms, one with a queen-sized 2poster 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 day out on the Costa Tropical and when it comes to value for money, then a trip on “Optimist of London” 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 and a not to be missed opportunity 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!

AutoCool Summer is here and there is still time to get your aircon in good condition! 

As usual, we put it off as long as possible before we turn on our air con in the car. When we do, it doesn’t feel that cold. This was exactly the case with my a/c, it seemed it wasn’t working very well. So I decided to call Mike from AutoCool and a time was arranged and refreshingly he was there on the dot and he got to work straight away! Mike went through what was going to happen step by step. The initial temperature that my car was chucking out was 10.40, quite good I thought until Mike reckoned on it being 5ish, Wow!! After carrying out some visible checks, Mike then cracked on. He connected up his equipment & measured the bar pressure of my system - 45 psi which is quite low, should be about 90 psi. The next stage was to remove the old gas, which is quite dangerous as it could give you a nasty freeze burn and is not very nice for the atmosphere if it escaped, then vacuum the system. This is the most important part of the service. This procedure vacuums the system to minus pressure to remove all remaining moisture, which does the damage. Fresh gas is then introduced and Mike added some compressor oil with some UV dye, to lubricate the seals and to pinpoint any leaks that may occur in the years to come. After some final checks, Mike was finished and we both sat in the car to take the temperature again. Amazingly it was now pumping out just over 50, my car was freezing. In all, Mike was here just under an hour and was thoroughly efficient and professional. This service is a must. I have a 7 year old car and it had lost half the gas in it’s aircon system. Think

about it. Mike tells me that he also offers a different service to car owners in the Costa del Sol. In his travels repairing car aircon systems he noticed that a large number of car headlights had been badly affected by the UV rays of the sun.

Before

after

A lot of car headlights are now made using polycarbonate or other plastic compounds and as a result of exposure to the sun these headlights are badly affected, making them yellow and opaque. Not only is this dangerous, cutting down their effectiveness by up to 85% but it is now classified as a FAIL POINT in the current ITV test. Help is on hand as Mike has invested in professional equipment that can restore headlights and rear light lenses to virtually as new condition leaving a bright, clear finish with protection against the sun’s UV rays. Many new headlights can cost anything from 100 to 350 euros and Mike can re-finish them to a very high standard at a fraction of this cost. See main advert below

aUtOCOOL The only mobile service specialising solely in car air-con systems. Get your a/c serviced now before next summer and before it lets you down. Have your headlights gone opaque or yellow? Before This is now a fail on After the ITV test so get them professionally refinished. For both services call Mike now on 951 321446 or 616 264067 www.autocoolspain.com

When You Get Older Symptoms Of Being Over 25

9. You start to worry about your parents' health.

1. You leave clubs before the end to "beat the rush". (worst still you don't go to the clubs)

10. You have more disposable income, but everything you want or need to buy costs between 200 and 500 quid.

2. You get more excited about having a roast on a Sunday than going clubbing the night before. 3. You stop dreaming of becoming a professional footballer / basketball player and start dreaming of having a son who might instead. 4. Before throwing the local paper away, you look through the property section. 5. All of a sudden, middle aged people are not 45, they are only 45. 6. Before going out anywhere, you ask whether there is anywhere to park. 7. Rather than throw a knackered pair of trainers out, you keep them because they'll be alright for the DIY or in the garden. 8. You buy T-shirts without anything written on them.

11. You don't get funny looks when you buy a Disney video or a Wallace and Gromit bubble bath, as the sales assistant assumes they are for your children. 12. Pop music all starts to sound the same. 13. You opt for Pizza Express over Pizza Hut because they do a really nice half-bottle of house red. 14. You always have enough milk in. 15. To compensate for the fact that you have little desire to go clubbing, you instead frequent trendy bars and restaurants in the mistaken belief that you have not turned into your parents. 16. You wish you had a shed. 17. You have a shed.

For Facebook Fans 16 types of people on facebook - which one are you?! 1. The “Lurker” - Never posts anything or comments on your post, but reads everything. 2. The “Hyena” - Doesn’t ever really say anything, just LOL’s and LMAO’s at everything. 3. “Mr./Ms. Popular” - Has 4,367 friends for NO reason. 4. The “Gamer” - Plays words with friends, mafia wars, bakes virtual cakes and stuff, etc. 5. The “Prophet” - Every post makes a reference to God. 6. The “Thief” - Steals status updates, and will probably steal this one. (That’s me then)!  7. The “Cynic” - Hates their life, and everything in it, as shown by the sombre tone in all of their statuses. 8 The “Collector” - Never posts anything either, but joins every group and becomes fans of random stuff. 9. The “Promoter” - Always sends event invitations to things that you ultimately delete or ignore. 10. The “Liker” - Never actually says anything, but always clicks the “like” button. 11. The “Hater” - Every post revolves around someone hating them, and they swear people are trying to ruin their life. 12. The “Anti-Proofreader” - This person would benefit greatly from spellcheck, and sometimes you feel bad for them because you don’t know if they were typing fast, or just stupid. 13. The “Drama Queen/King” - This person always posts stuff like “I can believe this”, or

“They gonna make me snap today!” in the hopes that you will ask what happened, or what’s wrong, but then they never end up finishing the story. 14. The “Womp Womp” - This person consistently tries to be funny, but never is. 15. The “News” - Always updates you on what they are doing and who they are doing it with. 16. The “Rooster” - Feels that it is their job to tell Facebook “Good Morning” every day.

Garra Rufa Fish - Feet Nibbling! If you still haven’t had your feet nibbled Why not?! It’s such a brilliant experience. 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. what are the benefits? 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 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 psoria-sis, 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 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. 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. Can i take the treatment if i am wearing nail varnish? Yes, as long as it’s 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. 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 list is available at the salon. For eg:, 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.

Frigiliana

Frigiliana (pronounced Frihiliana) is the Axarquía´s answer to Mijas and has won several awards for beauty and conservation. It is one of the larger villages in the area with a population of around 3,000, some of whom own holiday homes but the majority live there all year round. It is seven kilometres inland from Nerja and sits on top of a ridge in the foothills of the Sierra de Enmedio part of the Alhama, Tejeda and Almijara mountains. Like most Pueblo´s Blancos the streets are narrow, steep and winding and it is easy to get lost in the maze of cobbled pavements that lead between the white-washed houses. Traffic is only allowed through by permit except for deliveries between 08:00 to 13:00 weekdays. So for the most part you will find it safe to walk about without being flattened to a wall! Barribarto is the historical centre of town and its Moorish architecture and

narrow streets are a reminder of the past influence of a culture never forgotten. With 750 years of Moorish occupation, Frigiliana can never forget the legacy of the Moors and every year celebrates for four days the customs, gastronomy and music of Three Cultures, Christians, Moors and Jews. After the Christian conquest in 1487 there was a peaceful co-existence between these three distinct cultures for about 100 years. The village suffered extreme misfortune with plague, storms, earthquake and the phylloxera pest that destroyed the vines in this and other areas. It is thanks to tourism that Frigiliana regained its peace and prosperity. As you walk through the narrow, winding streets of the old barrio today you will find plenty of shops selling a gamut of wares. There are bars and restaurants to quench your thirst and appetite before you visit such monuments as The Palacio de los Condes de Frigiliana, the Ecce Homo Heritage, The San Antonio Church and the Phoenician Necropolis. The most direct way to drive to Frigiliana is straight up from the motorway at Nerja, or you can take the mountain road from Torrox. The village lies 56 kilometres from Málaga at an altitude of 318 metres and is on the Route of Sun and Wine.

Property Of The Month AS2351 Vélez-Málaga 1,459,000€ Own a hotel with 8 en-suite guest rooms right in the centre of town. Rooms are in a simple classic design combined with a chic, contemporary influence and a sensual touch. Set around a cool and tranquil courtyard, your guests can take breakfast, relax or just chill out after a day´s sightseeing, exercise in the swim-spa pool and sunbathe on a roof top terrace with stunning views of the town, the castle and the mountains beyond. Included in the building is a 3 bedroom house with a high walled garden. The constructed area is a little over 700m2 on a plot of 336m2. Viewings highly recommended!

La Tasca - Now Open Thurs & Fri Nights Q: What is the meaning of ‘La Tasca’? A: Small humble Spanish tavern where you can always have something to eat and drink. La Tasca in Torre Del Mar, has become a favourite breakfast and lunch stop for many of the expat community and it’s not difficult to understand why when you smell the tantalising aroma of good quality British bacon and sausages wafting out from the kitchen of what appears to be a Spanish tasca! It’s a rare sight to see the Spanish comunity having ‘tostadas con aceite y tomate’ alongside someone tucking into a ‘full English’ as both traditions are generally catered for in separate localities, but here in La Tasca you will find a fusion of international people enjoying an excellent variety of food and drinks. Now with a fantastic baker onboard, La Tasca is producing beautiful warm croissants, various types of breads for the ‘Special Sandwich’ menu and their latest introduction, the 'Big Breakfast Muffin’ - a soft Swiss bread muffin filled with the best of British! La Tasca doesn’t just do great breakfasts, so why not try any of the daily lunch specials or

something from the flame grill — perhaps a chicken and chorizo brochetta or a homemade steak burger with prime back bacon and Swiss cheese, maybe a Caesar salad or a light and tasty French omelette. However if you’re super hungry, you should try the new steak ‘La Torre Grande,’ the double steak and cheese tower burger with BBQ sauce…..wow! There is also a strong Spanish influence running through the kitchen, with dishes like fresh grilled chorizo with peppered eggs, morcilla and salad, or the special assortment of tapas for 2/3 people to share. The La Tasca ‘Gambas Pil Pil’ — sizzling prawns in garlic oil is also fast becoming recognised by the locals as something a little bit special. Although La Tasca is a Spanish-style café bar, it is very international. The owners are Spanish, English and Scandinavian-speaking, which accounts for the multi-national clientele and the variety of food choices on the menu. There is firm belief in sourcing the best produce to create something simple, tasty and good value for money. Here you will find it all… Summer opening hours (Mon-Wed 9am4pm) (Thurs + Fri 9am-late) Sat (10am-4pm)

Random Joke :)

$$$ Share’oscope $$$

A woman goes to the Doctor, worried about her husbands temper and threatening manner. The Doctor asks: "What's the problem?” The woman says: "Doctor, I don't know what to do. Every time my husband comes home drunk, he threatens to slap me around." The Doctor says: "I have a real good cure for that. When your husband comes home drunk, just take a glass of water and start swishing it in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don't swallow it until he goes to bed and is asleep." Two weeks later the woman comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn. The woman says: "Doctor that was a brilliant idea! Every time my husband came home drunk, I swished with water. I swished and swished, and he didn't touch me! How does the water do that?" The Doctor says: "The water does dam all. It's keeping your mouth shut that does the trick...."

Here is Mr. Share with some more share advice! This months Mr. Share has gone with Judges Scientific & has bought 138 @ 720p They design, manufacture and sell scientific instruments. Last months share Cape bought at 258p now 275p so the signs are there that things may be picking up! Let’s hope so!

Profile Creator: Ian Fleming First appearance: 1953 Casino Royale Occupation: 00 Agent title: Commander (Royal Naval Reserve) Marital status: Widower. His wife, Teresa Di Vicenzo was killed in a drive-by shooting on the day of their wedding, on orders from Blofeld (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service) Children: James Suzuki Bond (son with Kissy Suzuki) According to a fictional biography in the novel “You Only Live Twice,” Bond was born on 11 November 1920. His parents were Andrew Bond, from Glencoe, Scotland, and Monique Delacroix, from Yverdon, Switzerland. They were both killed in a climbing accident when Bond was 11. Bond’s only other ‘marriage’ was in the novel “Scorpius,” when he pretended to marry Harriet Horner in order to make their escape. She died of a snake bite two days later. Kissy Suzuki (You Only Live Twice) was the only one of his ‘Bond girls’ not to die a violent death. She died of ovar-

ian cancer, after giving birth to a son, James, whom Bond never knew he had. After his parents’ death, Bond went to live with his aunt, Charmian, in the village of Petts Bottom and was sent to Eton when he was 12. He only lasted two terms, being expelled for ‘girl trouble’ with a maid. He lost his virginity on his first visit to Paris at the age of sixteen, later reminiscing about the event in "From a View to a Kill." Bond is a heavy smoker — at one point admitting to smoking 70 cigarettes a day. Fleming himself smoked up to 80 a day Bond lives alone in a flat off Kings Road in Chelsea, looked after by an elderly Scottish housekeeper called May. In 1955, Bond earned around £2,000 a year net (worth £39,058 in 2012). He has an unlimited expense account when on assignment. The recipe for Bond’s Dry Martinis — shaken but not stirred — is: three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet. Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel. 24 films have been made about James Bond and 38 novels have been written about him. Actors who have played him: Sean Connery (1962 – 1971 & 1983); David Niven (1967); George Lazenby (1969); Christopher Cazenove (1973); Roger Moore (1973 – 1985); Timothy Dalton (1986 – 1993); Pierce Brosnan (1995 – 2002); Daniel Craig (2006 – present). Ian Fleming completed his novel ‘Casino Royale’ in just over a month. A new Bond novel, written by William Boyd, is due for release next year and Daniel Craig’s latest film, “Skyfall,” is due for release in October.

LT Construction being undermined. All too often the reinforcing is inadequate for the traffic on the drive. Avoid using substandard concrete mix, as it will lead to the break-up of the driveway after only a few years.

Printed Driveways Printed concrete drives can look very attractive when finished correctly. The driveway doesn’t need to be straight and regular, but can flow with the contours of the land. Islands and flowerbeds can also be incorporated to add features. They are prepared in the same way as a standard concrete drive. As with all construction work, preparation of the land is key to ensuring longevity of the build. Drains or gullies should be given a lot of consideration to avoid water erosion and the drive

A wet mix is applied to the reinforced concrete base, a coloured die is applied to the wet mix and a rubber stamp is then used to imprint the design into the concrete. Finally, a silicon compound is applied to seal the colour and reduce bleaching. Various effects and colours can be selected, depending on personal choice. Expansion lines are cut into the drive to relieve the pressure built up by concrete expanding during the hot summer period. Let LT Construction help with the design and build of your printed driveway. Together we can create something that is both practical and very attractive. Visit our website to see examples of different effects and colours at www.ltconstruction.es

rift D m l Fil iew tinenta Rev 4 – Con Ice

e Ag

The first Ice Age flick was one of the most entertaining entries in the Pixar inspired series of films that followed Toy Story. It had a sweet core message and a satisfying comedy edge thanks to the inspired Scrat. In Ice Age 4, Scrat inadvertently causes a seismic shift of truly epic proportions while attempting to chow down on his favourite meal of an acorn. Managing to split the former super continent off into smaller continents, best pals Manny, Sid and Diego become stranded on a

block of ice, away from Manny’s missus and teen daughter. With each of the Ice Age films the animation has improved and the action has evolved to a more dynamic place. This is more than enough to distract children for an hour and a half. Sid has his moments and Scrat is hilarious; but a large injection of new characters voiced by a painfully “hip” supporting cast do not make this fourth instalment in the Ice Age series feel particularly fresh.

The Word Queen Last month I described the benefits of focusing your marketing efforts on Amazon. Becoming a Number One Amazon Bestselling Author is extremely advantageous and there are virtually endless benefits. It allows you to: • Establish yourself as an expert in your field/niche. • Gain exposure for you and your book. • Drive a huge amount of traffic to a website or blog which talks about your book, etc… • Increase your consultation and coaching charges. • Receive offers from different sources of media to invite you for an interview about your book and your services. The basic concept of an Amazon bestseller campaign is to drive people to a special page telling them about your book, and to get them to return to that page to buy your book on the specified day of your launch. The reason why you want them to come back on a specified day is to hike up your Amazon sales rank. Most people will be more than willing to return to

your page (as opposed to going directly to Amazon to buy your book) because after they buy it, they’ll be able to claim some fantastic bonus gifts. These free gifts (often with a combined value of $200 or more) will be offered by a group of Joint Venture Partners (JVP’s) who you have brought together. Once the necessary steps have been taken and a launch date has been set, you can sit back and watch your book creep up the sales rankings and become an Amazon bestseller!

Las Nenas Kennels RE-LOCATED

One of the region’s best-established boarding kennels has recently been re-located — but it has not moved far! Bente and Jorgen, who first opened Las Nenas kennels in November 2009, remain in the Canillas de Aceituno area and will also be running their new kennels there. ‘We are still located in the countryside between Canillas de Aceituno and Sedella, it’s just that we have moved slightly further along the same track that we were on before,’ says Bente. ‘The big difference is that we are now only about ten minutes off the Vélez-Málaga/Viñuela main road. ‘As always, we provide a very friendly and caring service with plenty of time to stimulate and

play with all our visiting dogs. ‘All dogs have three daily walks in what is an extremely safe and tranquil area, with hardly any traffic around at all.’ The new kennels have a spacious sheltered area and an enclosed play area, which are protected from the sun at all times. ‘Hopefully, all our regular clients will like our new setting, and visitors are always welcome for a viewing or more information,’ Bente added. Bente and Jorgen are happy to guide guests to the kennels, and they also provide a collection and delivery service. See main advert below

Cancel Your Credit Cards Before You Die Reported in the Newcastle Evening Chronicle

MBNa: 'Our system just isn't set up for death. I don't know what more I can do to help.'

A lady died in September, and MBNA bank billed her in October and November for their annual service charges on her credit card, then in December added late fees and interest on the monthly charge. The balance that had been ÂŁ0.00, now is somewhere around - ÂŁ60.00. A family member rang MBNA:

Family Member: 'Well, if you sort it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. I don't think she will care.'

Family Member: 'I am calling to tell you that my grandmother died in September.' MBNa: 'But the account was never closed and so the late fees and charges still apply.' Family Member: 'Maybe, you should pass it over to your collections department.'

MBNa: 'Well, the late fees and charges will still apply.' Family Member: 'Would you like her new billing address?' MBNa: 'That would help.' Family Member: 'Plot 1049.' Heaton Cemetary, Heaton Road, Newcastle upon Tyne MBNa: 'But, that's a cemetery!'

MBNa: 'Since it is two months over due, it already has been.'

Family Member: 'Well, what the f*** do you do with dead people on your planet?'

Family Member: 'So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?'

The MBNA were not available for comment when a reporter from the Newcastle Evening Chronicle rang them.

MBNa: 'Either report her account to the Frauds Department or report her to The Credit Bureau, maybe both!' Family Member: 'Do you think God will be upset with her?' MBNa: 'Excuse me?' Family Member: 'Did you just get what I was telling you... The part about her being dead?' MBNa: 'Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor.' Supervisor gets on the phone: Family Member: 'I'm phoning to tell you, she died in September.' MBNa: 'But the account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply.' Family Member: 'You mean you want to collect from her estate?' MBNa: (Stammer) 'Are you her solicitor?' Family Member: 'No, I'm her grandson' MBNa: 'Could you fax us a death certificate?' Family Member: 'no problem.' (fax number is given ) After they get the fax:

The Town Frier It’s chiptastic in Puente don Manuel It all started with one of those moments of impulse — a smell or aroma. Whilst doing my rounds in Puente don Manuel, it hit me like a ton of bricks: the smell of fish and chips! I was rather hungry so I popped into 'The Town Frier’ where the new owners Trevor and Eve gave me a warm welcome. I ordered cod and chips with a ‘wally’ (that’s pickled gherkin to the uneducated) and took them outside on the well-dressed terrace. A sprinkle of salt, malt vinegar and a wedge of lemon and I dug in. My goodness, it was absolutely fantastic! The very large cod was pure white, flaky and moist; the batter light and golden with no sign of grease and the chips were cooked to perfection with enough crispiness on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The portion was huge, too — fantastic!

The prices are very reasonable and all meals include a choice of mushy peas, coleslaw, gravy or curry sauce. I have since had their magical doner kebabs: proper, with a lovely spicy chilli sauce. Just the job after a hard afternoon’s toil (or drinking)! Trevor and Eve took over the chippie in June this year and have transformed the business. They are open from 12 noon - 9pm Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and 5.30pm - 9pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Everything is cooked fresh to order and is well worth the visit! See advert on page 51

The father ponders for a moment, then answered "Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Robert Redford for a million quid and also ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million quid, then come back and tell me what you learned.” So the boy went to his mother and asked "Mum would you sleep with Robert Redford for a million quid?" The mother replied "Definitely, wouldn't pass an opportunity like that." The boy then went to his older sister and asked

"Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million quid?" The girl replied "Oh gosh, I would just love to do that, I would be nuts to pass up that opportunity." The boy then thought about it for a few days, and went back to his father. His father asked him "Did you find the difference between potentially and realistically?" The boy replied "Yes, potentially we're sitting on 2 million quid, but realistically we're living with two slappers.” "The father replied "That's my boy."

A.P.A.Ri.V Association for the Protection of Animals Rincon de la Victoria Meet Rafa (left) our resident Mastin. This big fellow was actually thrown over the refuge fence by his family that simply did not want him anymore. Rafa was most likely born in the spring of 2011. He stands almost 62cm high, is about 60cm long and weighs in the area of 45 kilos. He is quite a friendly dog and being young, loves to play. Although he gets along with the other dogs fairly well, he is probably better suited to being the only dog in the family. Rafa would be quite obedient in the right setting. A.P.A.Ri.V Association for the Protection of Animals Rincon de la Victoria This is Dina (right) She and her two sisters, Dee and Dottie, were born March 25, 2012 on the side of the road in the Granada province to mum, Abby. We think her dad was a small doberman mix. Dee has a delightful character and of course, just loves to play. She gets along with big and small dogs alike. She is expected to be a small dog, weighing under 5 kilos. Dina—as well as Dee and Abby would make a wonderful addition to any family. If interested in adopting Dina or Rafa please call Alix or Lola 657 219 369 Please also visit our website at www.apariv.org or contact us at aparivspain@gmail.com

Secondly, The T.A.I.L Summer Fair held at El Ancla, 14th July raising nearly €1,000, an overwhelming result.

) : a h a h s e k o J John O'Reilly hoisted his beer and said, "Here's to spending the rest of me life, between the legs of me wife!" That won him the top prize at the pub for the best toast of the night! He went home and told his wife, Mary, "I won the prize for the Best toast of the night." She said, "Aye, did ye now. And what was your toast?" John said, "Here's to spending the rest of me life, sitting in church beside me wife." "Oh, that is very nice indeed, John!" Mary said. The next day, Mary ran into one of John's drinking buddies on the street corner. The man chuckled leeringly and said, "John won the prize the other night at the pub with a toast about you, Mary." She said, "Aye, he told me, and I was a bit surprised myself. You know, he's only been in there twice in the last four years. Once he fell asleep, and the other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come." ------------------------------------------------------------A man on his Harley was riding along a California beach when suddenly the sky clouded above his head and, in a booming voice, God said, 'Because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish.' The biker pulled over and said, 'Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want.' God replied, 'Your request is materialistic; think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required reaching the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help man kind.' The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally, he said, 'God, I wish that I, and all men, could understand women; I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, why she snaps and complains when I

try to help, and how I can make a woman truly happy. God replied: 'You want two lanes or four on that bridge?" ------------------------------------------------------------As the coffin was being lowered into the ground at the Traffic Warden’s funeral, a voice from inside yells “I’m not dead, I’m not dead. Let me out!” The Vicar smiles, leans forward and mutters “Too bloody late pal, I’ve already done the paperwork.” ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up to heaven he said, 'Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey!' Miraculously, a parking place appeared. Paddy looked up again and said, 'Never mind, I found one.' ------------------------------------------------------------Father Murphy walks into a pub in Donegal, and asks the first man he meets, 'Do you want to go to heaven?' The man said, 'I do, Father.' The priest said, 'Then stand over there against the wall.' Then the priest asked the second man, 'Do you want to go to heaven?' 'Certainly, Father,' the man replied. 'Then stand over there against the wall,' said the priest. Then Father Murphy walked up to O'Toole and asked, 'Do you want to go to heaven?' O'Toole said, 'No, I don't Father.' The priest said, 'I don't believe this. You mean to tell me that when you die you don't want to go to heaven?' O'Toole said, 'Oh, when I die , yes. I thought you were getting a group together to go right now.'

Jokes h a h a :) A man walks into a welsh pub and orders a white wine spritzer. The bar goes silent as everyone stares at him... "Where are you from? You sound English", "I'm from across the Severn," replies the man nervously. "What do you do, just across the Severn?", "I'm a taxidermist." "What on earth is one of those?", "I mount animals." "Its all right boys," shouts the barman “He's one of us!” ------------------------------------------------------------A Pastor goes to the dentist for a set of false teeth. The first Sunday after he gets his new teeth, he talks for only eight minutes. The second Sunday, he talks for only ten minutes. The following Sunday, he talks for 2 hours and 48 minutes. The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and they asked him what happened. The Pastor explains the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn't talk for more than 8 minutes. The second Sunday his gums hurt too much to talk for more than 10 minutes. But, the third Sunday, he put his wife's teeth in by mistake and he couldn't shut up... ------------------------------------------------------------A woman stopped by, unannounced, at her son's house. She knocked on the door then immediately walked in. She was shocked to see her daughter-in-law lying on the couch, totally naked. Soft music was playing, and the aroma of perfume filled the room. "What are you doing?!" she asked. "I'm waiting for Mike to come home from work," the daughter-in- law answered. "But you're naked!" the mother-in-law exclaimed. "This is my love dress," the daughter-in-law explained. "Love dress? But you're naked!" "Mike loves me and wants me to wear this dress," she explained." It excites him to no end. Every time he sees me in this dress, he in-

stantly becomes romantic and ravages me for hours on end. He can't get enough of me" The mother-in-law left. When she got home, she undressed, showered, put on her best perfume, dimmed the lights, put on a romantic CD and lay on the couch, waiting for her husband to arrive. Finally, her husband came home. He walked in and saw her lying there so provocatively. "What are you doing?" he asked. "This is my love dress," she whispered sensually. "Needs ironing," he said. "What's for dinner?” ------------------------------------------------------------A drunk man who smelled like a brewery sat down on a subway platform bench next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half-empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the man turned to the priest and asked, "Say Father, what causes arthritis?" The priest replies, "My Son, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol, contempt for your fellow man, sleeping around with prostitutes and lack of a bath." The drunk muttered in response, "Well, I'll be damned," Then returned to his paper. The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologised. "I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?" The drunk answered, "I don't have it, Father. I was just reading here that the Pope does." ------------------------------------------------------------Man calls 999 and says "I think my wife is dead" The operator says “How do you know?” He says "The sex is the same but the ironing is building up!” ------------------------------------------------------------I saw a poor old lady fall over today on the ice!! At least I presume she was poor - she only had £1.20 in her purse

Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials. 1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions and neither do we.. 1. If we ask what is wrong and you say 'nothing,' We will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle. 1.

First Bubble Tea shop in Andalucia!!!!!

The Bubble tea was born in Asia more than twenty years ago and is now growing and increasing in the European market. Usually prepared with a base of tea mixed with fruit syrup, offering a huge variety of combinations. Can be made as well with juice, smoothie or slush ice and allows the mixing of multiple flavours. Its originality is due to chewy tapioca or fruit balls which are added and explode in the mouth to release the flavour they contain, thus providing a unique experience.
