m Fro Ed... the Hope you’re all having a beautiful summer, no doubt hanging out on the beach or around the pool, living the good life! Hopefully you’re taking advantage of the good weather while it lasts and visitng all the tourist attractions, such as the water parks and theme parks. One of the places I love to go is the butterfly park in Benalmadena, and when the sun is shining the butterflies are far more active than on a cloudy day. Since leaving Spain at the beginning of July my husband and I are now settled in Ojai, California. We’re staying in a delightful little house surrounded by avocado and fruit trees and we have our own garden frequented by all creatures great and small, including multi-coloured butterflies, rabbits, hummingbirds, and lizards. Today we’re going to visit Santa Barbara for the day, a neighbouring town to have a look around and visit the beach, and as LA is only 90 minutes away, we think we’ve found a good spot to live for the time being, surrounded by likeminded people. With only three and a half months to go until the baby is born we’ve been busy meeting midwifes – aiming to have a natural homebirth in a water pool, but of course staying open to anything when it comes to the unpredictability of births. We’ve also been going to lots of shops too, such as Baby’s R Us to stock up on everything we need for when he or she arrives. Somewhat synchronistically, the word Ojai translates as Nest in the language of the Shumash Indians who originally settled here, so we’re confident we’ve found the perfect ‘nest’ for our new baby!

Strange News was my Sentinella Mobile for some time – but am delighted that it’s on its way to new owners. Enjoy the rest of the summer… make sure you eat lots of ice cream while the weather is still hot and sunny. Speaking of ice cream, what’s your favourite flavour? Mine has to be mint choc chip...yum!

Lowry lout A man has been jailed for 20 weeks for singing 1970s hit 'Matchstalk Men and Matchstalk Cats and Dogs' day and night. Council tenant Michael Thornton made his neighbours' lives a misery through belting out the tribute to artist LS Lowry by folk group Brian and Michael. The song was at number one for three weeks in 1978. After drinking, the 51-year-old would sing it at the top of his voice along with a selection of Irish rebel songs, reports the Birmingham Mail. Thornton was sentenced at Birmingham Country Court to 20 weeks in prison after breaking an anti-social behaviour injunction - a civil court ASBO - under which he was required to keep the peace. The city council is also seeking his permanent eviction. Lucky leaves An eight-year-old boy from Malpas, Cheshire, is a contender for the title of the luckiest little lad in Britain after discovering a super-rare seven-leaf clover in his garden. Oscar Humphreys and his brother Lucas, 12, had gone to investigate after their dad David Humphreys, 46, said he had spotted four-leaf clovers growing in an area of their garden. After the pair picked out plants with four, five and even six leaves, the younger brother continued to harvest the fertile patch. Lucas said: “After searching for a while, Oscar shouted out ‘seven-leaf clover.’ “At first he wouldn’t even let me touch it – now he’s got it safely tucked away in his bedroom.” Four-leaf clovers are thought to be good-luck charms, so a seven-leaved version could have even greater power. Lucas said neither of the brothers had experienced any ‘major’ luck yet, but Oscar was chosen out of a hat for a ‘Legotastic challenge’. “Only a few could go so I suppose you could call that luck,” he added.

The Good Care Group The Good Care Group are an award winning company who are passionate about enabling clients to live in their own homes and live life the way they wish.

We look for genuine, caring people to join our team of professional carers in providing person centred care for our clients. We know that in Spain there are many British expatriates who have either a professional background in care or have cared for a loved one or friend. Working as a live in carer provides our carers with the opportunity to combine their passion to work in care in the UK balanced with spending their time off in Spain.This has proved successful for many carers in the home care market. what we offer at The good Care group We offer a variety of rota patterns although we find that two weeks on and two weeks off, works perfectly for those living abroad. As we employ our carers, recruit to meet our business needs and efficiently manage our client placements, they are able to plan ahead to ensure the best deals on flights back to the UK.

We passionately believe that finding quality, professional carers with a real desire to care for others drives the success of our business. Our approach to recruiting and training only the best carers and truly understanding their skills, experience, capabilities, personalities, culture and values ensures we are able to best match them to our client’s needs which ultimately provides good continuity of care. We place great emphasis on finding a good match between our carers and our clients so that carers are able to create wonderful bonds with their clients and often become part of their family. The perfect combination Many people who are living in Spain feel that being able to have 2 weeks in a country they love and then 2 weeks caring for their client makes for a perfect work/life balance – something we actively promote at The Good Care Group. They are well rested, very motivated and able to put all of their attention into providing their clients with the highest quality care.

interesting Facts - India became an independent nation in 1947 after ending British rule that began in 1858. With over 1.2 billion people, India's population will (probably) overtake China's in 2028. According to UN estimates, India will become the most populous country in the world in just 13 years' time, when it will have about 1.45 billion inhabitants. India has, arguably, greater linguistic diversity than any other large country. The precise number of languages spoken in India is probably over 1,000, but it is often hard to define when one language begins and another ends. There are more road deaths in India than any other country in the world. Officially about 115,000 people die on Indian roads each year - though a recent British Medical Journal study suggests that the true number of fatalities is closer to 200,000. More than 40% of the world's annual output of mangoes are grown in India.

Restaurant FIRMVM The Sentinella recently visited the relatively

new Restaurant FIRMVM on Plaza Damasco in Almuñecar...

Opened towards the end of 2014, Restaurant FIRMVM fast gained the reputation of being one of the finest restaurants on the Costa Tropical, with rave reviews and countless recomendations from very happy diners. We thought we would check it out and see just how good it is. We opted to visit for the special four course lunchtime menu, priced at 30€ per head and including wine. Not the cheapest menu del dia on the Costa Tropical by far and admittedly we were hoping for something a little special for that price, but little did we suspect that it would by far exceed our expectations! Restaurant FIRMVM has options to dine inside or al fresco on their terrace, but with temperatures hitting the mid thirties this lunchtime, there was no option but to take advantage of their air conditioned interior, with its modern and sophisticated feel and possibly the most comfortable seating you will find in any restaurant in the area. With two options for every course we decided to order one of each so that we could sample everything on offer that lunchtime. First up was Marinated Salmon with citrus, garlic mayonnaise with honey and mustard accompanied by tender shoots salad and pickled red onion. Delightful tastes and presentation, but the other option of Cod in Tempura Salad with green asparagus, avocado, cherry tomatoes all drizzled with a chiplote chilli sauce was the tastiest cod I have had the pleasure to eat here on the Costa Tropical. Next dish was either seasonal mushrooms, with low temperature egg, fried foie and slivers of Iberian streaky bacon or braised octapus tentacle with lime juice and an emulsion of Greek yoghurt accompanied with ‘wrinkled’ new potatoes. Both were magnificent creations, immaculately presented, whilst the flavours complimented each other perfectly. Next were main courses of fresh fish from Motril Fish Market or ‘Retinto’ steak served with

baby new potatoes, seasonable vegetables, sesame oil and Japanese barbecue. As expected, both were absolutely delicious, nice sized portions and perfectly presented. Followed by two incredible desserts of ‘The Banana’ or ‘Alhambra Memory’ which includes the legendary FIRMVM mint ice cream - a must try, trust me! Once again the chef had created two masterpieces that would be at home in any of the worlds top restaurants. All in all, Restaurant FIRMVM is the type of restaurant that you must try at least once when here on the Costa Tropical. Serving some of the finest and creative cuisine in a very nicely appointed restaurant with highly professional yet personable service and at prices that although above average are extremely fair for the quality that is offered. For food flair at its finest Restaurant FIRMVM is The Sentinella‘s Restaurant of the month! See main advert on page 55

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts What Is Craniosacral Therapy?

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction, and improve whole-body health and performance. CST is an alternative medicine therapy used by osteopaths, massage therapists, naturopaths and chiropractors. Using a soft touch, practitioners release restrictions in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. Cranial Osteopathy was originated by physician William Sutherland, DO (1873-1954) in 1898-1900. What conditions does Craniosacral Therapy address? CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and it´s effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction. Craniosacral therapists use the therapy to treat:

- Migraines and headaches - Chronic neck and back pain - Spinal misalignment - Mental stress and tension-related disorders - Fibromyalgia - Scoliosis - Infant and childhood disorders - ADD/ADHD - Orthopaedic problems - Post-traumatic stress disorders - TMJ Syndrome - Lymph oedema (water retention in legs or arms) - And many other conditions... A Craniosacral treatment: A typical craniosacral therapy session is performed with the client fully clothed, in a supine position (face up), and usually lasts about one hour. The therapist places their hands lightly on the patient’s body, tuning in to the patient by “listening” with their hands or, in Sutherland`s words, “with thinking fingers”. There are few reports of adverse side effects from CST treatment. See main advert below

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts Cómpeta to walk up the steep cobbled streets.

Cómpeta, pronounced by stressing the Com and not the Peta, is a high mountain village situated in the foothills of Sierra Almijara. The road leading to it is long and winding and as you drive onwards and upwards past lorries hurtling past you at breakneck speed you just know that when you get there this village will have everything you need to sustain you as you are not going to want to keep driving up and down 18 kilometres to the coast every day! It is on the route of sun and wine and has a vast population of some 3,600 people from about 35 different nationalities. A kind of United Nations of the mountains! You can drive all the way up to the central square, la plaza Almijara, where there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops sitting submissively below the Church of la Asuncion with its unique belfry tower, a reference point on the Cómpeta skyline. It seems to rise right up through the clouds as you stand below to admire it. Walking through the arch to the Paseo de las Tradiciones you find a much needed shady terrace with public toilets and the history of the village shown in a series of ceramic murals. You can´t park your car there but you can drop people off so they don´t have

AS2613

Other places of interest are the Hadriano Museum in the oldest part of town, which is just a house with a mill inside! The Chapel of San Cayetano which sits behind the museum on San Sebastián street and in turn leads to the quieter end of town, the cemetery! There is also a wine museum that sells different types of local wine, produce and handicrafts as well as serving food and drinks. August 15th is the Noche del Vino, the annual festival where free drinks can be sampled throughout the streets which are alive with Flamenco and other dance and music. In the morning there are demonstrations showing the treading of the grapes followed by lunch of migas and sardines with salad. Traditionally the villagers leave the town on this day to go to their country houses to harvest their grapes, placing them on enormous drying beds, that look like giants graves! and turning them in the harsh sunlight. Once sufficiently baked the grapes are then collected and the stalks snipped off, rendering them ready for consumption. If you listen you can hear the hills are alive with the sound of snipping in late September. The leaving party, as the villagers departed for their finca´s, was made an official fiesta by the local council in 1975. It is worth making a note in your diary as it is one festival you should attend at least once to enjoy the history and tradition of this vast mountain village. The best way to get to Cómpeta is either up from Algarrobo, past Sayalonga and continue on up, or up from Torrox Pueblo. From the A-7 it will take about 30 minutes

Property of the Month 495,000€ Cómpeta/Canillas de Abaida

This 800m2 house is situated just below the village of Cómpeta although it comes under Canillas de Albaida. It is very impressive and was originally built as a hotel, with an indoor solar heated swimming pool and huge ballroom, full gas central heating and double glazed tip and tilt windows. Sea and mountain views. The current owners converted it into a 3 to 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom family home but it is so large that it can be changed internally as you wish

Asbestos - Have You Been In Contact?

My name is Steve Woods and I am a solicitor based in Chester, UK, specialising in claims for asbestos-related diseases. I have been dealing with these claims for over 25 years and I aim to provide a professional but personal service. I often visit people in Spain and I have recently been to Mijas Costa, Benalmadena and Torremolinos We all know that as we get older, we can develop breathing problems. These problems can have a variety of causes but after investigations such as x-rays or scans, problems with shortness of breath can be attributed to exposure to asbestos. These investigations can show whether lung damage has been caused by smoking or exposure to asbestos – this can cause very serious illnesses: asbestosis, diffuse pleural thickening and mesothelioma (a cancer that attacks the protective lining of the lungs). It is not only workmen who have used asbestos themselves who develop these diseases, but also other men working in their vicinity or their wives and other family members who come into contact with their work clothes. It does not matter if the person involved has died – claims are still possible in certain circumstances. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related condition, has breathing problems and has come into contact with asbestos in the UK, please get in touch. You may be entitled to claim damages or benefits in the UK and I can help on a ‘no win no fee’ basis. A change in the rules now enables a solicitor to agree with his client to take a share of any

money recovered. A lot of solicitors now do this but I do not – because I believe my clients should receive in full whatever compensation I can obtain for them. I can also guarantee that all claims are dealt with by a qualified solicitor. I am happy to talk to anyone free of charge about their individual situation to see if a claim is possible. I can be contacted on 00 44 1244 340560 at info@woodslaw.co.uk or alternatively you can visit my website at www.woodslaw.co.uk

The Importance of Drafting your Will before August 17 A new legislation was passed by the European Council on July 4. The new European Union rules – now known as EU 650/2012 – are applicable to successions to all member states (ECS state) as of August 17 this year. The UK, Eire and Denmark have opted out, citing incompatibility between the differing legal procedures. Expats in Spain have the choice to apply either the law of nationality or the law of habitual residence to their succession. The habitual residency choice leaves many inconsistencies as to whether this is in the country of residence, or the country you were most associated with at time of death. In the latter case, the law of succession of that country will apply. The new regulation will be applicable to all assets in the EU, and will apply in Spain. Axarquía Lawyers has received many enquiries about the drafting of wills in Spain, directly related to the new EU regulations. Drafting a will is one of the most important duties that you will undertake. Do not leave this to chance – as well as the very important new clause, there is also the matter of the translation. This will ensure that the law of nationality will be applied to assets in the inheritance. Any-

63

Property - Wills - Inheritance - Taxes Tel: 952 967 004 / www.axarquialawyers.com

one concerned about these matters should seek the advice of a lawyer with expertise on EU successions. Habitual residents whose wills do not include the above-mentioned clause will have their inheritances executed under the Spanish law on succession. Although the regulation came into force in 2012, the provisions will not apply until August 17. That said, wills can be prepared and executed now, but do take note that until that date, the old regulations will apply and your wishes for your country of birth – or nationality – or your country of residence will govern your succession. Your present will remain valid if death occurs before midnight on August 16. There is no guarantee that your wishes will be respected, though – even if the clause is added. For peace of mind, contact our Englishspeaking lawyer who is expert in this field carmensilviaabogados@gmail.com for a competent lawyer from in your area. www.axarquialawyers.com

Why Did Greece Explode? Experts mandated by the European Union to investigate the causes that led Greece to the current economic situation relate the following facts:

on personal income. In addition, the weight of the public sector on the economy is overwhelming. There are about one million officials to 4,000,000 active people.

Greece falsified its accounts to enter the euro zone and distorted the facts until it finally exploded.

On Greek public railways the average salary of employees exceeds â‚Ź66.000. - per year. And this includes the cleaners and the low skilled. The (almost free) Athens Metro delivers about 90 million tickets a year, while the total cost of this public company exceeds 500 million.

In Greece, many workers have benefited from early retirement, set at 50 years for women and 55 for men who belong to one of the 600 job categories identified as particularly painful, and among which are included hairdressers (because of dyes that may be considered harmful), the musicians of wind instruments (blowing into a flute is exhausting) or TV presenters (the microphones are supposed to cause damage to health). (This law was adopted by the Socialist government of 1978). At Evangelismos hospital there were 50 drivers for officials' cars, and on average there were 45 gardeners for a small lawn with 4 bushes. Greece has the highest population in the world of people reporting an age of 110 years. The deaths are often not registered and pensions continue to be received. The European Union has found that there are families receiving 4-5 pensions, which they are not supposed to get. There are still pensions paid to persons who died in 1953, 50 years ago. 40,000 girls receive monthly life pensions of 1,000 Euros per month for the simple fact that they are unmarried daughters of deceased civil servants, and it costs the state coffers 550 million euros per year. Now they will receive only up to the age of 18. The pacemakers in Greek hospitals were acquired at a price 400 times higher than in British hospitals. There are thousands of good "tricks" departments and unnecessary institutions, which many Greeks live off. For example the Institute for the Protection of Kopais Lake, a dry lake since 1930. In the last decade, Greece has created over 300 new public companies. Tax evasion is massive, over 25% of Greeks do not pay a cent

The French retirees receive on average 51% of the last salary, the Germans 40%, North Americans 41%, Japanese 34%. Meanwhile, Greek pensioners receive 96% of their earlier salary. Greece has four times more teachers than Finland, the best educated country according to the last PISA report. By comparison, the student performance in Greece is the lowest among most European countries.

Helping Axarquia Monthly Update

La Vaqueria

August 17th Deadline New Regulations for Spanish Wills.

If you have never been before La Vaqueria is a beautiful hidden oasis filled with art and a welcoming atmosphere.

European Regulation 650/2012 will be applicable to EU citizens who die on or after 17th August this year. Their succession will be governed by the law applying in the country where the deceased had his/her habitual residence at the time of death, unless they expressly choose their own national law when they make their will. Residents in Spain should be careful to include in their wills their choice of inheritance law (either their own national law or the Spanish law). For example, if you are English and living in Spain, and you die on or after 17/08/2015, your succession will be governed by Spanish Inheritance Law, unless you have opted for your national law. In other words in most cases foreign EU residents will have to draft a new Spanish will. If you are not sure which law will apply to your succession or if your will should be updated, we can assist you. For more information, please write to info@helpingaxarquia.com

For those of you re-visiting, as you know, it changes here on a regular basis so there is always something new to see. Artist Su Derrick has converted the old village dairy of Benamargosa into a beautiful arts and crafts shop and studio where you can buy pices of art, souvenirs, comission paintings, attend classes in drawing, painting and mosaics or simply drop in for a slice of home made cake and a cuppa! During the week they serve a variety of snacks and on Sundays they have a Buffet Brunch menu with a minimum of 15 different home made dishes to chooses from. Our latest venture...live music/jam/open mike session on every 3rd Sunday has got off to a great start and looks like being a winner. Please check main advert for dates and times. If you have any arty queries or need help sourcing materials Su is always happy to help so feel free to drop in for advice.

Sexy Dec Telly favourite Dec Donnelly enjoyed his “last night of freedom” when a couple of saucy strippers turned up at his stag do. The I’m A Celeb host, 39, thought to be worth around £30million, ditched the A-list scene to party with pals at a boozer near his West London home. Dec is due to marry fiancée Ali Astall, 35, after popping the question last autumn while filming in Australia. Pals joined him at the Octoberfest pub on Fulham Road. They all enjoyed the strip show put on by a pair of sexy lasses at the bash that went on until the early hours. Dec’s telly co-host – and childhood friend – Ant McPartlin, 39, also helped him celebrate ahead of the wedding which is planned to take place later this summer. Organisers had ensured all windows were covered for the party at the Bavarian-themed pub. Dec is already living with Ali, who has worked as his talent manager for more than a decade. Douglas honoured Veteran actor Michael Douglas has been honoured with a ‘Genesis’ award – often referred to as the ‘Jewish Nobel prize’ – and at a glittering awards bash in Jerusalem, the 70-yearold’s two children, Dylan, 14, and 12-year-old Carys made a rare public appearance alongside Michael and wife Catherine Zeta Jones. Speaking after the presentation of his award, the 70-year-old said: “Catherine is wonderful. Our kids are here, and we’re having a fantastic time. Life is good.” The Wall Street, Basic Instinct, Fatal Attraction and Romancing the Stone star appeared very

emotional during the ceremony, even choking back tears at one point when he revealed that son Dylan had decided to have a bar mitzvah when he turned 13 last year. It seems that it was an emotional night for all the family, with Catherine taking to Instagram to pay tribute to her husband: “So proud of Michael for being honoured with the Genesis Prize. We’re having an amazing family vacation! Happy summer everyone!” Despite Michael and Catherine’s six-month separation in 2013, it seems that they are stronger than ever.

London cabbie Gary Eales claims that he drove the 49-year-old for over 20 minutes in a journey that cost £19.60. And his reward? A 40p tip. This came even after he had dropped the redhaired TFI presenter at a cashpoint to pay for his fare and was told to keep the change for a twenty pound note. "If he flagged me down again, I’d keep driving," huffed Gary to The Sun. Echoing this sentiment – and then some – was Gary's mum, Alma. "That’s it, the ginger p*ick. I ain’t watching no more of his shows," she declared. Far from being hard up, shrewd dad-ofthree Chris made £75million from his £225million media group sale in 2000 and his career is going from strength to strength.

Zara is already mum to her adorable daughter Mia, 17 months, but in recent weeks there has been speculation that she may be expecting another child with husband Mike Tindall. The Royal set tongues wagging after an appearance at the Royal Ascot, with social media users jumping to conclusions after seeing the mother-of-one photographed with a hand over her stomach. With speculation mounting, the 34-year-old decided to address the rumours for once and for all. A statement issued by Zara’s representative to MailOnline.com denied the report, reading: “Zara is not pregnant – her plans remain the same in terms of preparation for Rio 2016.”

This essential vitamin can facilitate the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorous. Ergothioneine, a powerful antioxidant present in mushrooms, is effective in providing protection from free radicals as well as boosting the immune system. It is actually an amino acid that contains sulphur, in which many people are deficient – often without realising it.

Mushrooms are full of proteins, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, antibiotics and antioxidants. Many varieties good-for-your-bladder selenium and, like us, they produce vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. Oyster mushrooms are a good source of iron. Plus, they're low in calories: Six medium white, for example, have just 22! Mushrooms provide you with lean proteins since they have no cholesterol or fat and are very low in carbohydrates. The fibre and certain enzymes in mushrooms also help lower cholesterol levels. Moreover, the high lean protein content in mushrooms helps burn cholesterol when they are digested. Mushrooms are a good source of iron, and over 90% of the nutritive iron value can be absorbed by the body, which promotes the formation of red blood cells and keeps people healthy and functioning at their full potential, reducing the risk and severity of anaemia. They are very effective in preventing breast and prostate cancer due to the significant presence of various polysaccharides, like Beta-Glucans and conjugated Linoleic Acid, which both have anti-carcinogenic effects. Mushrooms are an ideal low-energy diet for diabetics. They have no fats, no cholesterol, very low levels of carbohydrates, high protein content and a wealth of vitamins and minerals. They also contain a lot of water and fibre. Moreover, they contain natural insulin and enzymes which help the breaking down of sugar or starch in food. They are also known to contain certain compounds which help proper functioning of the liver, pancreas and other endocrine glands. Mushrooms are a rich source of calcium, an

People Who Come And Go People who Come and Go – 9 – Hanneke, ‘guardian’ of rustic style! Advertised last month in The Sentinella, ‘Casa Elefante’ has sold remarkably quickly. Owned

for 15 years by Hanneke, from Holland, this delightful country cottage near Los Romanes obviously has what it takes to attract attention! Style is what this lovely house is all about. Rustic features flow gently and beautifully from room to room, with restored beams on sloping ceilings, original flooring and grey-blue painted woodwork and windows. Smooth, polished, painted concrete proves to be an excellent work surface in both kitchens and bathrooms. The cottage, divided into two independent halves, has a connecting door to make the space super versatile – after seeing the first half, it is a delight to pass through the ‘secret’ door to discover the second!

I asked Hanneke how she managed to make the house so perfect. “I love the blend of Mediterranean and Morrocan styles, with their use of natural materials, organic forms and simple, minimalistic aesthetics and I wanted to recreate my own version of that blend. I used natural pigments for painting and smooth,

rounded surfaces. The gardens and land around, with large rock formations and rolling country views, work so well with this style too! I only had to bring everything together. I hope that the result is an atmosphere of love, respect and harmony with nature within the property.”

Now, the new owners are looking forward to taking over ‘guardianship’ of the house from Hanneke - after all, we own our properties on paper, but owners come and go, and really we are just ‘guardians’ while we live in them. I hope its new owners will love it and take care of it as much as Hanneke has. By Toni Waterman Unspoilt Andalucia See contact details in advert opposite

Amazing Business Opportunity From Keidi Keating – the Editor As most of the regular readers of The Sentinella will know, I recently married an American man and moved to the USA. As part of creating my new life there I’m letting go of a lot of my old life here in Spain. So there’s an exciting, sky’s the limit opportunity for an entrepreneurial sort (or for a potential partnership) who thinks big and takes action! Kami and Tony (my sister and brother-in-law) do a fantastic job running The Sentinella magazine so nothing is changing with that side of things and they will continue to run The Sentinella Axarquia edition as usual. However, I have decided to sell The Sentinella licensing rights. In other words, a massive opportunity exists for someone to expand The Sentinella into other regions of Spain and countries where expats gather across the world. Someone could choose to do this either by setting up

Sentinella magazines in different areas themselves and then selling them, building a massive network of magazines as a thriving business, or selling the licensing rights to other people who can set up The Sentinella in their area. None of the existing editions of The Sentinella (Axarquia edition, Costa tropical edition, and the Malaga editon) would be affected by this, as they are now all independently run. If anyone is interested in the price for this unique opportunity, or for more info, please email Keidi at info@thesentinella.com

Please note, The Sentinella Axarquia magazine is NOT for sale and nor are any of the other editions of The Sentinella magazine – the only thing that is for sale is The Sentinella umbrella licensing rights.

Angler fish got their name from their method of earning a living: long before human anglers ever appeared on the planet, angler fish were skilled fishers

Females attain full sexual maturity only after a male of the species finds her and attaches to her body by biting into her skin; it remains there for life The male anglers then fuse with the female – so much so that gradually, all one can see of the male are two globular growths on the female’s skin: its gonads. From this point on, the male’s life literally depends on its female host, as they even share a circulatory system. When the female is ready to mate, the male provides sperm on the spot so that she might impregnate herself.

They have their own – sometimes glowing – “fishing pole" (esca) which is actually an evolutionary adaptation of the first three bony rays of the dorsal fin, which protrude from between their eyes, very close to the upper jaw The fish wiggles this about to lure in other predatory sea creatures that it will ultimately devour. This strategy is known as "sit and wait" hunting There are more than 200 species of angler fish, most of which live in the murky depths of the Atlantic and Antarctic oceans, up to a mile below the surface, although some live in shallow, tropical environments They are generally dark grey to dark brown in colour, have huge heads and enormous crescent-shaped mouths filled with sharp, translucent teeth Some angler fish can grow to reach three feet in length, although most are significantly smaller – often less than a foot. They can weigh up to 50lbs The angler fish also has rather unique mating habits. When scientists first discovered them, they noticed that almost all of those observed were female…and that these specimens had what appeared to be some sort of parasitic growth attached to their lower parts These “parasites” were actually just greatly reduced male angler fish, whose puny size means that their objective in life is to find and mate with a female

Poetry Corner House Cleaning Blues by Ellen Bailey I have the house cleaning blues I look around and see so much to do I look at the walls, the windows, and the floors I see heaps of dust layered like boards What I need is a good house cleaning crew But where to get one, I haven't a clue I asked for volunteers, but none would relent Their community spirit, it seems, had been spent I could wish for an occasional hurricane For me, that may not be such a bad thing I could raise the windows and open the doors And be done with these house cleaning chores But hurricanes don't occur where I live So its left up to me to clean this crib I have devised a plan to get the job done Since I can no longer depend on anyone My plan is as simple as it can be One that is not very taxing on me My walking shoes I will lace up tight And from this nightmare I will take flight

Reader Writes Dear Editor I am returning home today after ten days staying at Casa Lester Chimenea Hill Nerja. Sadly my holiday was marred by an incident last night when just after putting out rubbish a man exposed himself at the door to the villa. Thankfully the gate was locked. The police were unable to find our complex so did not attend and we discovered there was no emergency number for the management company. As the police did not contact me to take my details I doubt they will be in touch further. It was a very distressing experience and to find there was no help or assistance is worrying. Particularly as it was late at night, it could have been a lot worse and noone would have known. As I return to the uk this morning I'm raising the issue for your readers, should there have been other similar issues, and for the community to be aware. The man was around 5ft 6" white and tanned. He only said Hola so may have been a Brit or Spanish. He was wearing a black polo shirt and black trousers. Many thanks Deb Roberts

Star Rating: *****/*****

Film

ut O ide ins

Here’s one to take your children to see during the summer holidays! Inside Out is an original, heartfelt story from Pixar about growing up and learning to handle your emotions. Told primarily from the perspective of the feelings inside 11year-old Riley's mind (brought to life by the voices of Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, and more), the plot has many moments of peril/tension, including bridges/islands crumbling, a train tumbling over a precipice, and characters falling into a deep, dark pit.

Some of Riley's fears are also on display, including a giant, scary clown. Parents are likely to get hit hardest by the film's heart-tugging moments, but anyone with empathy will feel for Riley as she experiences life's ups and downs. Ultimately, Inside Out has important messages about needing to feel, and express, all of your emotions whether happy or sad. Although most of the content is appropriate for elementary schoolers and up, younger kids may need a bit more explanation about what's going on, since there are references to abstract thought and the subconscious, and it can be a little confusing when other characters' emotions are shown.

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 There is conflict between what you would like to do and what has to be done to achieve that.

Take care of your sight and hearing this month TAURUS: April 21-May 21 You understand, and effectively meet, the needs of others around you. You have professional capacity and creativity but should study and improve the theoretical – knowledge is power. A family reunion brings back happy moments GEMINI: May 22-June 21 You need to evaluate and react or risk becoming withdrawn and depressed, If you seem indifferent, people will believe you don’t want any social contact – give in and rely on one or two special friends. There is likely to be a delay in receiving documents CANCER: June 22-July 22 An unexpected event could permanently change your life for the better giving you the freedom and possibility to pursue your desire. Take part in team and group work and you will gain recognition LEO: July 23-August 23 You experience a time of positive personal growth but beware of introspection, particularly in company. Economic interests may restrict the path of your profession temporarily but will bring benefits long term VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Be grateful for your upbringing which gave you your inner spirit and in which resources were freely made available to you and now guide you with love and contentment. Your decisions will be the right ones

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Calm your inner emotional stress and beware of seeming abrupt and impertinent when ideas and feelings are expressed. Be patient in dealing with obstacles and setbacks and problems will melt away SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 During the first half of August, Scorpios need to take the helm in family situations and take on some additional responsibilities.

Within a supportive environment, you will recover stability and reveal the tenderness lurking beneath your hard surface AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 Your need to feel attractive and surrounded by people, may make you seem a little superficial. Let go, experiment and enjoy some excesses, happiness and sensuality PISCES: February 20 - March 20 You embrace spirituality and mysticism and this month break ties with the material, enabling you to feel self-possessed and capable of continuing some important work. You’ll need to seek quiet to maintain your hard-earned achievements and find balance between reality, goals and dreams

Jokes h a ha :) Juan comes up to the Mexican border on his bicycle. He's got two large bags over his shoulders. The guard stops him and says, "What's in the bags?" "Sand," answered Juan. The guard says, "We'll just see about that. Get off the bike." The guard detains Juan overnight and has the sand analyzed, only to discover that there is nothing but pure sand in the bags. He releases Juan and lets him cross the border. A week later, the same thing happens. The guard asks, "What's in the bags?" "Sand," says Juan. The guard does his thorough examination and discovers that the bags contain nothing but sand. He gives the sand back to Juan, and Juan crosses the border on his bicycle. This sequence of events is repeated every day for three years. Finally, Juan doesn't show up one day and the guard meets him in a Cantina in Mexico. "Hey, Buddy," says the guard, "I know you are smuggling something. It's driving me crazy. It's all I think about...Just between you and me, what are you smuggling?" Juan sips his beer and says, "Bicycles." ------------------------------------------------------------I let my wife take me out for a drive in the countryside today.

She gave it everything she had until a fart that, from both sound and stench, had obviously followed through. She was horrified. "Don't worry," I said, patting her head.
