I hope you’re all enjoying the sizzling summer sunshine in the Axarquia region. I’m missing the hot spell in Spain this year, but writing this from an equally sizzling Ketchum Sun Valley, Idaho! It’s a novelty to spend a summer in the mountains rather than on the beach! My 6-month visa here takes me up until November when I plan to return to Spain and the UK for Christmas and to welcome a new member into the family! Right now, I’m feeling both relieved and excited having recently completed my first ever speaking engagement. I spoke to an audience of 170 people in the state of Texas, guiding them through meditations, reciting my story of spiritual awakening, and leading them through experiential exercises to help them reawaken their own Divine spark. At the end I sold copies of my book, The Light, and received some very generous donations to the Light charity fund. If someone had asked me to speak to an audience of this size a couple of years ago, I would have smiled and said, “No thank you.” Back then, even the mere thought of getting up on stage in front of such a large crowd would fill me with a sense of dread. I had always worried too much about what people thought of me, and their judgments, which I now realise stem from nothing more but their own insecurities. Luckily, with the help of some amazing mentors, I was able to see where my fears of being judged and my low level of self-confidence came from; mainly early childhood and past life experiences. Now, these hang-ups are healed and as a result I had the courage to step outside of my comfort zone and take a big risk. Fortunately, the audience loved my talk and I loved every second of the experience. The loving and grateful response was magical and I felt strangely calm during the entire event. After, as I reflected, I discovered my deep desire to talk to many more audiences in the future, as a speaker and workshop facilitator. It’s a previously unknown passion that God led me towards and something that came completely

unsought as I trusted that He knew what was best for me. For me, these things are confirmation that the Universe, God, or whatever name you prefer to call that omnipresent power always knows what is best for us, even when we, ourselves, are unsure. I received another lesson in Texas too. But I’ll tell you all about that in next month’s editorial! Keep enjoying the gorgeous weather there. Hasta Septiembre!

Strange News Best shed - A Welshman has fought off fierce competition from over 1,900 fellow 'sheddies' to be crowned winner of the 2013 Shed of the Year competition and win the £1000 first prize. Alex Holland, from Machynlleth in mid Wales, made his shed from a recycled upturned boat and uses a 20w solar panel to power LED lights. Located at an altitude of 750ft above sea level in the Cambrian Mountain range, the rustically charming shack is made entirely from recycled materials and contains a wood burner, 12v sound system and gas cooker - as well as a refrigerator to store chilled drinks. "With the £1,000 prize I intend to buy a second hand 400w 12v wind turbine to augment the solar panel to give me enough electricity to make ice in the fridge for gin and tonics, and to ensure the cider & beers are always chilled,” he said.

Caged smoker - A Turkish man has taken to wearing a locked head cage every day in a desperate attempt to quit smoking. Ibrahim Yucel, 42, who has been battling unsuccessfully against the ciggies for 26 years, asks his wife or daughter to lock his wire cage every morning and keep the keys. He is unable to open the cage during his working day, even if he craves a smoke. Yucel says he was inspired to create the helmet-like device by observing motorcyclists' headgear and because his own father died of lung cancer. Bus Protest - Placard-waving students in China have staged a protest at having to give up their bus seats to OAPs during rush hour. "Not only do we have to give up our seats whenever an old person gets on, but they make us late because they take so long to get on and off," said a protester. The students invaded buses in Zhejiang province, urging elderly passengers to only travel off-peak. The bus company had the protestors removed. A spokesman said: "They should learn more respect for their elders. These veterans have worked hard their whole lives. They have earned the right to sit."

Amazing!! man owned & drove the same car for 82 years They certainly don't make them like that anymore. This man owned & drove the same car for 82 years.

still runs like a Swiss watch, dead silent at any speed and is in perfect cosmetic condition. (82 years). That's approximately 13,048 miles per year (1087 per month)... 1,070,000 that's miles not kilometres!!

Mr. Allen Swift (Springfield, MA.) received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father, brand new - as a graduation gift in 1928. He drove it up until his death last year.....at the age of 102 !!! He was the oldest living owner of a car that was purchased new. It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death. It has 1,070,000 miles (1,712,000kms) on it,

that's British engineering of a bygone era. I don't think they make them like that any more.

Three Cautionary Tales People sure stay busy trying to cheat us, don't they?

out the credit card, and yep - you guessed it a switch had been made.

Scene one

An expired similar credit card from the same bank was in the wallet.

A friend went to the local gym and placed his belongings in the locker. After the workout and a shower, he came out, saw the locker open, and thought to himself, 'Funny, I thought I locked the locker...

The thief broke into his locker at the gym and switched cards. Verdict: The credit card issuer said since he did not report the card missing earlier, he would have to pay the amount owed to them.

Hmm, 'He dressed and just flipped the wallet to make sure all was in order. Everything looked okay - all cards were in place... A few weeks later his credit card bill came - a whooping bill of £14,000! He called the credit card company and started yelling at them, saying that he did not make the transactions. Customer care personnel verified that there was no mistake in the system and asked if his card had been stolen... 'No,' he said, but then took out his wallet, pulled

How much did he have to pay for items he did not buy? £9,000! Why were there no calls made to verify the amount swiped? Small amounts rarely trigger a 'warning bell' with some credit card companies. It just so happens that all the small amounts added up to big one! look out for senario two next month

Pain.. I often sit on my terrace with a beer and just ponder....this day was no different The day was really quite beautiful and the drink facilitated some deep thinking on various topics. Finally I thought about an age old question: Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts? Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts. Well, after another beer and some heavy deductive thinking I have come up with the answer to that question. Getting kicked in the nuts IS more painful than having a baby and here is the reason for my conclusion: A year or so after giving birth, the wife (like all other mothers) said "It might be nice to have another child." On the other hand, you would never hear me, or any other man say, "You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts." I rest my case....time for another beer!

interesting Facts - Estonia was part of the Russian empire until 1918 when it proclaimed its independence. Russia recognised it as an independent state under the 1920 Treaty of Tartu. Not much more than a decade after it regained its independence following the collapse of the USSR, the republic was welcomed as an EU member in May 2004. The move came just weeks after it joined Nato. Russians account for up to a third of the population. Many Russian-speakers complain of discrimination, saying strict language laws make it hard to get jobs or citizenship without proficiency in Estonian. Some Russian-speakers who were born in Estonia are either unable or unwilling to become citizens because of the language requirements. Estonia enjoyed an investment boom following EU accession, but in 2008 its economy was badly hit by the global financial crisis.

NaturVets €€€ Keep your pets’ costs down Times are difficult at the moment for everyone -- people and their animals. If you are struggling with your personal finances, it may seem expensive to have a pet. Feeding it and making sure vaccinations and other treatments are up to date is certainly not free, but there are things you can do to reduce the spending without affecting the quality of your pet’s life. First of all, consider your pet’s diet. We have noticed that many owners tend to feed their dogs and cats the cheapest dry food because premium dry food is very expensive. This is in fact a false economy: in the long run, the cheap food does not provide them with all the nutrients they need, and also has additives which can be harmful over a long period. A good alternative is to make up your own diet for them, with raw meat and bones, plus some fruit and vegetables. If you go hunting for other ingredients you will be able to provide your pet with a super-healthy diet which in the long run, will save you a lot of vet bills! Secondly, vaccinations. Many vets tend to vaccinate against everything every year, but this is

summer Opening hours

really not necessary. When vaccinating an animal it is important to consider how long the immunity will last for each disease, the environment in which the animal lives and its age and general health. By vaccinating only with what is necessary, your vet bill will be kept down and your animal will be protected without over-stimulating his immune system. Thirdly, treatment for parasites. Once a year you must treat your dog or cat against the worm equinococcus, but for the rest of the year you should only treat for worms if the pet actually gets them. In order to avoid this, you can feed garlic, for example. Feel free to come by our clinics if you would like help with recipes for your pet, or want to find out what vaccinations your pet REALLY needs and what natural remedies you can use to prevent parasites. With a bit of work and common sense you can have a cheaper pet AND increase his quality of life. Don’t forget to turn now to page 96 & enter

Dumb Crimes ‌Carried out by even dumber criminals! A lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried this creative defence: "My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few trifling articles. His arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you can punish the whole individual for an offence committed by his limb." "Well put," the judge replied. "Using your logic, I sentence the defendant's arm to one year's imprisonment. He can accompany it or not, as he chooses." The defendant smiled. With his lawyer's assistance he detached his artificial limb, laid it on the bench, and walked out. ------------------------------------------------------------A woman was reporting her car as stolen, and mentioned that there was a car phone in it. The policeman taking the report called the phone and told the guy that answered that he had

read the ad in the newspaper and wanted to buy the car. They arranged to meet, and the thief was arrested. ------------------------------------------------------------A motorist was unknowingly caught in an automated speed trap that measured his speed using radar and photographed his car. He later received in the post a ticket for $40 and a photo of his car. Instead of payment, he sent the police department a photograph of $40. Several days later, he received a letter from the police that contained another picture...of handcuffs. The motorist promptly sent the money for the fine. ------------------------------------------------------------A pair of Michigan robbers entered a record shop nervously waving revolvers. The first one shouted, "Nobody move!" When his partner moved, the startled first bandit shot him.

What Is Lymphatic Drainage? By Bianca Bojahr this type of therapy consists of a manual massage performed by a lymphatic drainage therapist, focussing on specific lymph nodes and points of the body, as well as the natural flow of the lymphatic system. The process will reduce blockages of the lymphatic system, which in turn promotes a healthier body. When the lymphatic system becomes blocked, lymph nodes may become swollen. Further, the system fails to remove the body´s toxins and can even affect white blood cell counts. Lymphatic drainage can reduce blockage, as well as aid bodily functions such as the circulatory, respiratory, muscular and endocrine systems. a lymphatic drainage has been recommended for conditions such as: - Lymphoedema, in which a blockage causes swelling in the arms or legs. - It can also reduce: - colds and other illnesses caused by viruses - allergies - menstrual cramps - In Lymphoedema affected tissues, the lymph is unable to drain properly. Instead, the protein-rich lymph becomes stag-

nant within these swollen tissues. Bacteria thrive when they enter through a break in the skin, and this is why lymphoedema affected tissues are prone to infections. While lymphatic drainage is often about preventative health care and is considered safe, physical symptoms such as swollen glands can indicate a problem with the lymphatic system. Understanding the lymphatic system: The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels and ducts which move fluids throughout the body. Lymph originates as plasma, which is the fluid portion of blood. The lymphatic system aids the immune system in destroying pathogens and filtering waste so that the lymph can be safely returned to the circulatory system. - To remove excess fluid, waste, debris, dead blood cells, pathogens, cancer cells and toxins from these cells and the tissue spaces between them. - The lymphatic system also works with the circulatory system to deliver nutrients, oxygen, and hormones from the blood to the cells which make up the tissues of the body.

Holidays With Children - Enjoy Them Without Accident, Please for children, holidays with their parents are magical moments they will remember forever. for parents, these days of rest -- in some cases -- are the only ones they can really enjoy with their children.

- Avoid or decrease your intake of fried foods,

But parents need to organise holidays well to make sure this time of relaxation and fun does not become a problem. Although the best rule for dealing with children is to use common sense, let me offer a few tips:

- Water is the best fluid. In summer, heat, sweating and physical activity increases their needs for fluids so offer water frequently -even if they do not ask. They may well feel thirsty and do not say so.

- Children learn by imitation, so don’t lecture them or expect them to understand by scolding; treat them as you would like them to treat you. Always set them a good example by your own behaviour.

- During the holidays, children may be more active but the parents are more relaxed so if we do not keep an eye on the youngsters, the risk of accidents is higher. This is especially so in the case of children aged between one and four years, who are most exposed to risk.

- Have a family breakfast and at least one main meal together -- no TV, radio or reading the paper. Remember that the meal also has a social function which provides an ideal time to talk to your children about their problems and successes and to transmit values and standards of conduct on how to eat, live or understand the world and society. - Prepare healthy food… fresh food. It is an ideal time to introduce them to new flavours such as fish, vegetables and seasonal fruits.

candy and pre-prepared meals or junk food. Never use it as a reward because, in fact, it is a punishment for health.

Finally, but very important, make sure the place you spend your holiday has security provisions suitable for the age of your children, for eg; those related to the protection of stairs, windows, pools, electrical outlets and cleaning products for home or garden. Inspection of all these potential sources of domestic accidents should be the first thing to do when you reach your destination, and this will ensure you have a good time.

At Optical Nerjavisi贸n we can help you choose sunglasses, which are not only based on fads and aesthetic criteria, but you should consider when you will be wearing them (beach, mountain, driving...). Besides dealing with radiation you should also allow for optimal visual acuity. We pay special attention to the children, their lens is nearly transparent until 10-12 years, and their eyes absorb all radiation, so it is important to buy sunglasses that meet the regulations of the European Commission since otherwise the effects on your eyes can be dangerous and irreversible. For most appropriate colour for every need and the type of filter do not hesitate to consult your eye specialist in Optics Nerjavisi贸n.

Back pain is a common problem that affects most people at some point in their life. It usually feels like an ache, tension or stiffness in your back. The pain can be triggered by bad posture while sitting or standing, bending awkwardly, or lifting incorrectly. Back pain is not generally caused by a serious condition and, in most cases, it gets better within 12 weeks. It can usually be successfully treated by taking painkillers and keeping mobile. Backache is most common in the lower back, although it can be felt anywhere along your spine, from your neck down to your hips. If you have back pain, you should try to remain as active as possible and continue with your daily activities. In the past, doctors recommended rest for back pain, but most experts now agree that being inactive for long periods is bad for your back. Moderate activity, such as walking or doing everyday tasks, will help your recovery. You can take painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen. Hot or cold compression packs may also help reduce the pain. You can buy compression packs from your local pharmacy, or a bag of frozen vegetables and a hotwater bottle will work just as well.

Janet Van Dam tel: 618 989 125

Your state of mind can also play an important role. Although it can be difficult to be cheerful if you are in pain, research has shown that people who remain positive tend to recover quicker than those who get depressed. Some people choose to have manual therapy, such as physiotherapy or osteopathy, as soon as the pain starts. For back pain that lasts more than six weeks (which doctors describe as chronic), treatment typically involves a combination of painkillers and either acupuncture, exercise classes or manual therapy. Spinal surgery is usually only considered when all else has failed. Preventing back pain How you sit, stand, lie and lift can all affect the health of your back. Try to avoid placing too much pressure on your back and ensure your back is strong and supple. Regular exercise, such as walking and swimming, is an excellent way of preventing back pain. Activities such as yoga or pilates can improve your flexibility and strengthen your back muscles.

Interesting Facts About Fleas Bought to us by tina from Happy Hounds.

- Fleas can jump 80 x their own body height.

- Fleas have been used in warfare by the Japanese to spread fleas (dropping them like bombs from planes)

- Fleas can carry diseases such as the plague.

- The human flea can spread Murine typhus and tapeworm. -Fleas on your puppy or kitten are a great threat and can cause anaemia. - The Black Rat Flea ('Xenopsylla cheopis') played a big part in transmitting the Black Death plague to humans. - The common game, tiddlywinks apparently translates as ‘the game of the flea’ in over ten European Countries. - Garlic and vinegar are both said to repel fleas. - The female adult is said to be able to produce up to 950 eggs in its lifetime. - The sand flea is a crustacean but looks like an insect. - A way to distinguish a flea bite from other insect bites is there will be a single piercing (as opposed to two) for each mark. - Fleas are parasites that feed on the blood of their host. - There are four stages to a flea’s life cycle Egg, Larva, Pupa and Adult. - Fleas range in size from as little as 2mm up to a whopping 1.4cm! - There are over 2300 different species of fleas. - Fleas have no wings, they jump around. - Fleas can be both light and dark brown. - Fleas can jump 150 x their own body length! - Most female fleas are larger than the males. -The human flea is mostly found on pigs! - Flea populations in the home are usually made up of 5% adult, 10% pupae, 35% larvae, 50% Eggs.

- Fleas can feed off humans and animals. - Fleas eggs are just about visible to the human eye as small white objects. - Humans could suffer a fever, headache and nausea as a result of flea bites. - Many flea products contain harmful chemicals and could be fatally toxic to kittens. - The dog flea and cat flea are probably more likely to be found in your home (if you have pets) rather than the human flea, unless perhaps you’re a pig farmer!

Finally Some Good News!

Wales?!

fantastic news from Social Security concerning Pensions and Benefits

I was in a pub the other night and heard three girls with an over abundance of flesh, talking at the bar. Their accent appeared to be Scottish, so I approached and asked, "Hello, are you three lassies from Scotland?"

‫تسين اديپ هياس تفر رگا رون‬ ‫هريخ مشچ و راويد شقن‬ ‫رگا رون ناد يمن رگد هياس شقن ام‬ ‫هياس تفر‬. ‫تفر ر‬ ‫تسين اديپ هياس تفر رگا رون‬ ‫شقن ام هريخ مشچ و راويد شقن‬ ‫تفر رگا رون ناد يمن رگد هياس‬ ‫هياس‬. ‫ام هريخ مشچ و راويد تفر ر‬ ‫تفر رگا رون ناد يمن رگد هياس شقن‬ ‫مشچ و راويد شقن تسيناديپ هياس‬ ‫هياسام هريخ‬ ‫رگد هياس شقن ام هريخ مشچ و راويد‬ ‫هياس تفر رگا رون ناد يمن‬ ‫هريخ مشچ و راويد شقن تسيناديپ‬ ‫اديپام‬

One of them screeched, "It's WALES, you bloody idiot!"

‫شقن تسين‬

So I apologised and replied, "I am so sorry. Are you three whales from Scotland?"

If I hear anything else, I'll let you know.

and... that's the last thing I remember....

LatEst  tEChNOLOgY  DirECt FrOM thE Uk Dryzone is a revolutionary new material direct from the UK for the control of Rising Damp

The Problem - Whenever Rising Damp is diagnosed, it is important to have the condition correctly treated, as failure to do so can cause damage and devaluation to any property. It is not sufficient to simply cover up the problem with a special paint or coating in the hope that it will go away. Only by preventing the dampness rising up the wall in the first place can rising dampness be adequately controlled. Quick to install Concentrated formulation Low hazard - non caustic - non flammable Minimal disruption to homeowner whilst being installed Removes the need to redecorate every year Greatly reduces the health risk from the spores created by internal damp walls The DRYzONE System is fast, clean and effective Free site survey and assessment

Your Guarantee - The Dryzone system is recognised by both the Guarantee Protection Trust (GPT) and the Property Guarantee Administration (PGA) as an acceptable method of rising damp treatment

New Mum in Town - Que Calor! Ay Ay Ay... this year's sol and sangria season is proving to be yet another new motherhood experience! last year's obligatory refresco has been swapped for tinto de verano (yes, that's right, no more walking cow), and, at long last, the jelly belly has gone - gloria vendita!! Could it be...could I be back to 'normal'?? One thing remains the same...I am still running around after an active Jazmín; only faster and in a more chaotic manner. Keeping cool (in all aspects) is not an easy task during the Spanish summer. Once again, we have been to Marbella for a mini break. First on the to-do list was the swimming pool. Time we put Miss J's swimming lessons to good use and showed off her skills; ever the proud, excited Mama. The sunblock had been slapped on 30 mins before sun exposure (as per instructions, you can never be too careful in the Spanish sun) but Jazmín flatly refused to wear a hat or sunglasses, or use a float of any kind! Whilst she embraced the refreshing water temperature (quite the opposite to Mama's reaction), she leapt in screaming Papa (new favourite word; like a broken record). Way to go baby girl! After a little baby paddle, she decided that swimming was not for her, especially when there were steps with shallow water -- and other children to play with. So much for my vision of baby front crawl, so much for a baby/Mummy moment! But it was fabulous to watch her smiling and splashing with other children, and even more fabulous that Mama and Papa got to enjoy a cheeky glass of fizz poolside! Bliss! During this trip, baby girl became a typically Spanish baby which meant late late nights, late(ish) mornings and heat-induced siestas. Evening sleep is still shockingly bad, so that it is what encouraged Mama to 'tirar la toalla' -give in and relax! We took her to Marbella one night but she slept through it. Party time it was not, but it was relaxing. We took her to the centro comercial Miramar. She enjoyed the tapas; but nothing special. I do. however, recommend Lizzaran tapas bar where the cañas cost 70 cents, and you can eat more than you need to cheap as chips. But, baby girl totally loved our night of 'marcha'...in Puerto Banus! A glimpse of what's to come perhaps...? Like mother like daughter....?

She was actually buzzing; must be the expensive air which gives that natural high! Little J loved seeing the yachts and of course, the fishies. She LOVED LOVED the designer shops; Jimmy Choo in particular (GULP). She LOVED the designer pizzeria (I say designer because two pizzas, one vino, one zumo and one coke were very designer priced; yikes). Even more amazingly, we were allowed into the coolest cocktail bar ever (at the entrance, boat-shaped) and led to the calmer terraza. I had my first (amazingly) alcoholic cocktail in yonks (just one mind) and thoroughly enjoyed bopping to the music. Miss J however certainly enjoyed it more! She krunked and strutted her stuff on the dance floor and was definitely the centre of attention. At least at this age she isn't embarrassed to be seen out at night with her old Mama! Overall, it was a successful trip and another realisation of how quickly my baby girl is growing! adios ‘til next month!

We are all familiar with the “normal” orange as a source of vitamin C, but one of its relations, the bitter orange, has many more medicinal uses. Various parts of the whole plant -- peel, flower, leaf, fruit and fruit juice -- are used to make homeopathic remedies which can be taken internally and also used on the skin. Bitter orange oil is made from the peel and science has shown that when applied to the skin, it can be effective for treatment of fungal skin infections such as ringworm, jock itch and athlete’s foot. Bitter orange peel is also used to improve appetite, and, in surprising contrast, it is also used for weight loss. Both fruit and peel are used to treat and soothe upset stomach, nasal congestion and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).The flower and oil are used for gastro-intestinal disorders including ulcers in the intestine, constipation, diarrhoea, blood in faeces, drooping (prolapsed) anus or rectum and intestinal gas. These parts of the bitter orange plant are also used for regulating fat levels in the blood, lowering blood sugar in people with diabetes, stimulating the heart and circulation, “blood purification,” disorders of the liver and gallbladder, kidney and bladder diseases and as a sedative for sleep disorders. Some people use bitter orange flower and its oil for general feebleness, “tired blood” (anaemia), impurities of the skin, hair loss, cancer, frostbite and as a tonic. Bitter orange peel is applied to the skin for swelling (inflammation) of the eyelid and its lining, as well as the retina in the eye. It is also used for bleeding from the retina, exhaustion accompanying colds, headaches, nerve pain, muscular pain, joint pain, bruises, swelling of the veins (phlebitis) and bed sores. In aromatherapy, the essential oil of bitter orange is applied to the skin and also inhaled as a painkiller. In foods, bitter orange oil is used as a flavour-

ing agent. The fruit is used for making marmalades and liqueurs such as Triple Sec, Grand Marnier, Cointreau and Curacao. Because the fruit is so sour and bitter it is rarely eaten, except in Iran and Mexico. The dried peel of the fruit is also used as a seasoning. In manufacturing, bitter orange oil is used in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and soaps. In Asian medicine, the entire dried unripe fruit is used primarily for digestive disorders.

Film Review monsters University It’s been 12 years since Pixar introduced us to the loveable one-eyed blob Mike Wazowski and his gigantic furry scare partner in Monsters, Inc. But instead of a "where are they now?" sequel, Monsters University travels back in time to tell the tale of how these two unlikely friends ended up in the scare business to begin with. For Mike, being a scarer—a superstar monster who creeps into human children's bedrooms to startle screams out of them as a way of powering Monstropolis—is the only thing he's ever wanted to do. For Sulley, there's a family legacy to live up to since his dad was one of the most famous scarers ever.

ON THE FRONT LINE TO THE BEACH - WITH 952 542 126 BEST QuALITY 662 388 854

And so they arrive as freshmen at Monsters University, each intent upon becoming scare majors. But roaring roadblocks await. Star rating - ****/*****

Salto del Negro

this small village has about 160 inhabitants and is situated next to Benamargosa and below Cútar and Comares....

In fact folkflore has it that Salto del Negro was named when the Moors refused to convert to Christianity and either jumped or were pushed off the top of Comares, landing in a place, thereafter to be known as Salto del Negro or Black Mans Leap! There are other versions of this tale, three of which are listed on a plaque in the village. It is 90 metres above sea level and sits amongst lemon groves just above the Benamagosa river facing the old mill by the bridge.

AS2535

Photo information from left to right. Photo 1 has a date of 1994 on it. I asked a local villager why and he said, “Up until then there were only a few houses in the Hamlet and during 1994 the village grew to how it is today with more houses built”. Photo 2 is of the old mill on the river bed oppo-

site the village, it was bought by the mayor of Benamargosa and is now being renovated but not sure what it is being renovated into! Photo 3 shows the village with Comares on the top of the hill above, so you can see how it got its name! Photo 4 is a closer one of the village.

Here I am, now in Sun Valley, Idaho, faced with the sweet-smelling prospect of a summer packed with hiking, mountain biking and other outdoor activities. My partner and I went on our first hike this week! I felt so excited that I even bought brand new hiking clothes for the occasion (choosing a delicious purple theme). Perhaps somewhat naively, I had expected a fairly simple and effortless stroll over and across the pleasant-looking land. But oh no! This was uphill all the way and proper hard work on both legs and breathing. We had barely reached the first bend and I was already panting and perspiring. “Come on, we’ve got a ways to go yet,” my partner said. I used what felt like every last ounce of my energy and breath to reach the next bend. By this point I was literally gasping for air, on the verge of having some kind of attack. This time I cowered to the ground and let the blood rush to my head, utterly deflated and anxious that my heart was pumping so incredibly fast. As my partner pressed on, me left behind in his footsteps, at one point I even began to cry. But somehow, amidst all of this pain and assumed torture, I made it to the top of the mountain and inhaled slowly, smiling as I absorbed the scenic view. Going downhill was far easier and at times I didn’t walk but ran down the mountain, feeling so free and happy as we passed brightly-coloured butterflies, exotic birds and plenty of ancient, wise trees. Once at the bottom, as I stood under a hot shower, I realised that this climb was not unlike what I and others go through when it comes to our life goals. We all want to achieve something by reaching our goals, yet en-route we may feel like crying and stopping at multiple points. Those who continue upwards, despite the pain and exhaustion, are the ones who reach the peak and can then enjoy the view and feel the freedom. the question is, will you be one of the people who continues on despite the pain, the tiredness and the tears?

Fifty Shades Of Grey

...a husbands point of view

The missus bought a Paperback, down Shepton Mallet way, I had a look inside her bag; ... T'was "fifty shades of grey". Well I just left her to it, And at ten I went to bed. An hour later she appeared; The sight filled me with dread... In her left she held a rope; And in her right a whip! She threw them down upon the floor, And then began to strip. Well fifty years or so ago; I might have had a peek; But Mabel hasn't weathered well; She's eighty four next week!! Watching Mabel bump and grind; Could not have been much grimmer. And things then went from bad to worse; She toppled off her Zimmer! She struggled back upon her feet; A couple minutes later; She put her teeth back in and said I am a dominater !! Now if you knew our Mabel, You'd see just why I spluttered, I'd spent two months in traction For the last complaint I'd uttered. She stood there nude and naked Bent forward just a bit I went to hold her, sensual like and stood on her left t*t! Mabel screamed, her teeth shot out; My god what had I done!? She moaned and groaned then shouted out: "Step on the other one"!! Well readers, I can't tell no more; About what occurred that day. Suffice to say my jet black hair, Turned fifty shades of grey.

Profile Full Name: Patrick Wayne Swayze Birthday: August 18, 1952, died September 14, 2009 (aged 57) Cause of Death: Pancreatic cancer sign: Leo Birthplace: Houston, Texas; spouse: Lisa Niemi, married 1975 siblings: Brothers Don Swayze and Sean Kyle; Sisters, Vickie Lynn (1949–1994) and Bambi. Occupation: Actor, dancer, singer-songwriter Patrick was raised as – and remained – a devout Roman Catholic. He was of Welsh, Irish and Apache descent. He played football for his high school and was hoping to receive a football scholarship for college until a knee injury ended his career. He studied gymnastics at nearby San Jacinto College for two years. He completed his formal dance training at the Harkness Ballet and Joffrey ballet schools. He then starred as a replacement playing the role of Danny Zuko in the long-running Broadway production of Grease. Patrick made his film debut as "Ace" in Skatetown, U.S.A. and appeared as Pvt. Sturgis in the M*A*S*H episode "Blood Brothers" in 1982.

At age 19, he met his wife Lisa Niemi Swayze, then 15 years old, when she attended dance lessons with his mother, Patsy Swayze. His breakthrough role was as dance instructor Johnny Castle in the 1987 film Dirty Dancing. The film was a low-budget production which was only intended to be shown in theatres for one weekend before going straight to video, but it became a surprise hit and achieved massive international success. Dirty Dancing was the first film to sell one million copies on video, and as of 2009, it had earned over $214 million worldwide. He received a Golden Globe Award nomination for the role and also sang one of the songs on the soundtrack, "She's Like the Wind", which he had originally co-written with Stacy Widelitz. The song became a top ten hit. After Dirty Dancing, he appeared in several flops. His biggest hit came in 1990, when he starred in Ghost with Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg. Ghost was the highest-grossing film of 1990, and at one point, the fourth highestgrossing film of all time. He made his West End theatre début in the musical Guys and Dolls as Nathan Detroit on July 27, 2006 and remained in the role until November 25, 2006. He was reportedly offered $6,000,000 to reprise his role of Johnny Castle in a sequel to Dirty Dancing but turned it down. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in January 2008 and fought it until his death, continuing to work until the very last month.

There are about 900 different varieties of salmon. In comparison, there are only about 190 country nationalities in the world. Salmon always return to the river where they were born in order to spawn. This often entails “jumping” up waterfalls and accounts for the fact that in Scotland particularly, certain areas are called salmon “leaps.” October and No-

vember are the prime times to see this phenomenon. Fishing for salmon is regarded as one of the most skilled areas of the sport and the people pay huge sums of money for the privilege. Females lay thousands of eggs (usually between 2,000-10,000), but less than 1 per cent of these eggs survive to reproduce. Salmon can migrate more than 3,000kms upstream through freshwater to spawn, and Chinook salmon can migrate 16,000kms through their North Pacific ocean feeding grounds. That is four times the driving distance between Vancouver and Toronto. Chinook salmon or King salmon are the largest in the Pacific Ocean. They can weigh over 250kg. Salmon often travel 50kms per day on their spawning journeys.

Food For Thought Why food for change? 22% of Spanish children live under the poverty level 2.2 million children live in poor families in Spain - Save the Children report The Food for Change project is collecting packaged food and cash donations which go to buy basic supermarket groceries for the Comedor Santa Domingo who feed 110 people a day at their cafe and hand out 65 food bags a day to needy families - only food is donated not cash. They are based in central Malaga (behind Corte Ingles ) – it’s a well run, immaculately clean and friendly place. The people who are fed there are all sent by Malaga One Door (social services). They have a separate eating place for the children and have job training counsellors and social workers on site. We are also supporting Los Angeles de la Noche who run the “Free to allcomers” street food kitchen on the Rio bridge, near the Ibis Hotel in Malaga. They never turn people away and are always very busy. To help these genuinely deserving groups please look in your food cupboard or buy one extra item on offer in the supermarket - or donate 1€. All gifts are gratefully received - not only food, but shampoo, wet wipes and shower gel/tooth brushes, etc. We are committed to taking all the collected donations to Malaga when we have a car boot full - weekly or bi-weekly.

Silver Fox Band this group of three people have been playing for many years in various groups here in Spain. Prior to meeting and coming to Spain, they played with countless outfits in the UK including Screaming lord Sutch and many household names. They formed Silver Fox a couple of years ago after stints with local bands MGRox, Blues and Beyond and Jacqui Silk and Diablo. The band comprises Graham Smart who plays guitars, harmonicas and guitar synth as well as providing vocals. Jacqui Gibbs is an outstanding female vocalist, singing Blues, jazz and harmonies. Her husband Mel plays acoustic and electric guitar as well as slide (bottleneck) for which he is better known. He is also responsible for some of the vocals. Everywhere they play, they impress audiences and venue owners with their diversity. Never boring, they always give the audience a good time and give great value for money at every gig. They have established quite a following. This year, they can be heard in Frigiliana at Sal Y Pimienta, Racing Axarquia in Torrox and places around Competa, subject to bookings and music licences. They recently appeared at the Axarquia Animal Association with some of the best bands in the area. a CD is currently in production and if you check magazines and facebook sites, you can see where they are appearing. Should you wish to contact them, email them on meljacdyl@hotmail.com

) : a h a h s e k o J "G'day mate, Foster's helpline...What's the problem cobber?" "I'm in Darwin with my sheila and she's been stung on the privates by a wasp and now it has completely closed up." "Bummer dude!" "Thanks mate, I hadn't thought of that, Bye." ---------------------------------------------------------------On the first day, God created the dog and said, sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this I will give you a life span of twenty years. The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?" And God said that it was good. On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span." The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?" And God again said that it was good. On the third day, God created the cow and said, "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years." The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?" And God agreed it was good. On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years." But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?" "Okay," said God, "You asked for it." So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the

last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone!! ---------------------------------------------------------------'Viagra' is now available in tea bags. It doesn't enhance your sexual performance but it does stop your biscuits going soft. ---------------------------------------------------------------Due to a water shortage in Ireland, Dublin swimming baths have announced they are closing lanes 7 and 8.... ---------------------------------------------------------------I got a letter from Screw Fix Direct thanking me for my interest, but explaining they were not a dating agency... ---------------------------------------------------------------Paddy thought his new girlfriend might be the one but after looking through her knicker drawer and finding a nurse's outfit, a French maids outfit and a police woman’s uniform, he finally decided if she can't hold down a job, she's not for him. ---------------------------------------------------------------After 100 years lying on the sea bed, Irish divers were amazed to find that the Titanic’s swimming pool was still full. ---------------------------------------------------------------The family wheeled Grandma out on the lawn, in her wheelchair, where the activities for her 100th birthday were taking place. Grandma couldn't speak very well, but she would write notes when she needed to communicate. After a short time out on the lawn, Grandma started leaning off to the right, so some family members grabbed her, straightened her up, and stuffed pillows on her right. A short time later, she started leaning off to her left, so again the family grabbed her and stuffed pillows on her left. Soon she started leaning forward, so the family members again grabbed her, and then tied a pillowcase around her waist to hold her up. A nephew who arrived late came up to Grandma and said, "Hi, Grandma, you're looking good! How are they treating you?" Grandma took out her little notepad and slowly wrote a note to the nephew..."B******* won't let me fart."

Jokes h a h a :) A fleeing Taliban terrorist, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw something far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the mirage, only to find a very frail little old Jewish man standing at a small makeshift display rack - selling ties. The Taliban terrorist asked, "Do you have water?" The Jewish man replied, "I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5." The Taliban shouted hysterically, "Idiot Infidel! I do not need such an over-priced western adornment - I spit on your ties. I need water!” "Sorry, I have none - just ties - pure silk - and only $5." "Pahh! I curse on your ties, I should wrap one around your scrawny little neck and choke the life out of you but I must conserve my energy and find water!" "Okay," said the little old Jewish man, “It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie from me, or that you hate me, threaten my life, and call me infidel. I will show you that I am bigger than any of that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a restaurant. It has the finest food and all the icecold water you need. Go in peace." Cursing him again, the desperate Taliban staggered away over the hill. Several hours later he crawled back, almost dead and gasped, "They won't let me in without a tie!” ---------------------------------------------------------------Just minutes before the church services started the townspeople were sitting in their pews and talking. Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church. Everyone started screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate. Soon everyone had exited the church except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence. So Satan walked up to the old man and said, "Don't you know who I am?”

The man replied, "Yep, sure do.” “Aren’t you afraid of me?" Satan asked "Nope, sure ain't" said the man. "Don't you realise I can kill you with a word?" asked Satan. "Don't doubt it for a minute," returned the old man, in an even tone. "Did you know that I could cause you profound, horrifying, physical agony forever?" "Yep," was the calm reply. "And you're still not afraid?", asked Satan. "Nope." More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, "Well, why aren't you afraid of me?" The man calmly replied, "Been married to your sister for 48 years.” ---------------------------------------------------------------Paddy is doing some roofing work for Murphy as he nears the top of the ladder and starts shaking and going dizzy. He calls down to Murphy and says "I tink I will ave to go home, I've come all over giddy and feel sick." Murphy asks "Ave yer got vertigo?" Paddy replies "No I only live round the corner."

Saint Stevie the Scouse section A bloke visiting the docks who sees a docker writhing in pain on the floor. He asks what's wrong with him. Another docker says "He wants to go the toilet". "So why doesn't he go" asks the stranger. "What? On his lunch break?" comes the reply ---------------------------------------------------------------A Liverpool fan walks past a shop and sees the video called "Liverpool - The Glory Years". He goes into the shop and asks how much. "£100" says the shopkeeper. "That's a bit steep, how come it's so dear?" "Well its a tenner for the video and £90 for the Betamax recorder!!” ---------------------------------------------------------------Q: Why do Sumo wrestlers shave their legs? A: So they ain't mistaken for Liverpudlian women ---------------------------------------------------------------What's the difference between a Scouser and a broken clock?
