I’ve just got back from Las Vegas where I attended a business seminar along with 3000 other likeminded people. This is my third time in Vegas however it’s the first time that I noticed to such an extent the different kinds of people that exist on this planet. There are those who, still dressed in their pyjamas, are feeding slot machines and playing blackjack at 8am in the morning, desperate for a little ‘not-muchchance-of’ LUCK to further fuel their gambling addiction. Then there are those, who like the 3000 other people attending the seminar, are taking their so-called ‘luck’ into their own hands, determined to create a future where they’re not reliant on the global economy for wealth and opportunities. This second group of people are creating their own economy, and refuse to buy into the conditioned belief that we have to work hard to earn a living, that when we leave school we should go and get a job, or countless other rubbish that the educational system, government, and some well-meaning parents tell us. So there I was sitting in a room full of the most helpful, giving and good-natured people I’ve ever met, which also contradicts the statement that wealthy people aren’t nice or friendly! In this room a good portion of the people were already making at least $50k a month, some up to $500k a month, and they were all delighted to share the secrets of their ‘success’ with as many people as possible. As I got talking to some of them, they shared how they regularly donate to charitable causes or visit third world countries to give from their hearts with no expectation of anything in return. Wow – how great what we can do for others when we’re overflowing with abundance! On day two of the seminar, the audience jumped to their feet and exploded in applause as Robert Kiyosaki, author of the multi-million bestseller Rich Dad, Poor Dad, graced the stage. For those who

don’t know, this amazing author, who’s native of Hawaii, had two ‘dads’ growing up. His poor dad was his real dad and he believed that you had to work for a living and get a job as soon as you left school. His rich dad was a local man who was always abundant and very smart, because he believed that the poor dad’s philosophy was backwards, and he taught Robert the importance of having your money working for you by investing into assets and businesses, and minimising liabilities. So with all this in mind, I encourage you to monitor the level at which you’re playing this game called life. Are you relying on ‘luck’ for your future, or are you one of those people who has had enough of the global economy, and you’re finally ready to take your future into your own hands? There’s a plethora of opportunities out there, and I’m not here to encourage you into one or another. All you need to do is set the intention with clarity, ask the Universe to show you the way, notice what comes into your path, listen to your gut, and take the appropriate action!

Strange News Bristol croc A woman has taken one of the clearest pictures yet of an elusive 'crocodile' believed to be lurking in the River Avon. Tamara Blanco, 29, was enjoying a run along the riverbank near Bristol's Clifton Suspension Bridge when a dark, sinister, reptilian shape suddenly reared out of the water. Ms Blanco, who works as a shop assistant in the city, quickly took a picture of the 'beast' before it quietly slipped away. The Bristol Croc, as it has become known, has been spotted several times by members of the public in recent months. An initial sighting by a bus driver prompted Avon and Somerset Chief Constable Nick Gargan to tweet that police were conducting a search of the riverbank. Officers found nothing - but two days later, a local mother also claimed to have seen the croc.

Mighty mouse A mammal that looks like a mouse -- but has some of the characteristics of an elephant -has been found scampering around an African desert. Macroskeledies micas is a new species of elephant shrew with a long tail and small furry body, but also a long, trunk-like nose. Dr Galen Rathbun, of the California Academy of Sciences, told KPIX 5 News: "They're actually more closely related to elephants than they are to mice. Think about crossing a miniature antelope and an anteater." Dr Rathbun came across the animal while walking through the desert in Namibia. Dr Jack Dumbacher, curator of ornithology and mammalogy at the academy, said: "When we sequenced the DNA and looked at them a little more closely, we said, 'This thing is really different.'" The creature eats termites and insects like an anteater and is unusual in that it is monogamous. The species usually gives birth to twins or triplets, which are covered in fur and ready to run straightaway.

Healthy Wellbeing From curing smelly feet by wiping them with vodka to treating blisters with mouthwash, here are some quirky health tips which can improve your wellbeing Burger eating - Scoffing down a burger and chips during a flight rarely seems like a healthy option while sitting in the same position for several hours. But air passengers finally have an excuse to scoff themselves silly - because a carb-heavy fry-up could help conquer jet lag. Japanese scientists revealed this week that foods which kick-start a big release of insulin, such as carbohydrates, could be crucial to resetting our body clock when we get out of sync with our natural cycle. Feet vodka wipe - Sometimes having a shower is not an option when your feet stink. One remedy that gets rid of the stench without running water is to wipe them down with a vodka-soaked cloth. Vodka contains alcohol, which is antiseptic and drying, so it destroys odour-causing fungus and bacteria and dries out the moisture that lets these organisms grow. Pencil headache cure - As headache cures go, this is certainly one of the more unusual, but it does have a real medical basis. Place a pencil between your teeth, but don't bite. The explanation is that when you are stressed you instinctively clench your jaw and teeth. This strains the muscle that connects your jaw to your temples and can trigger a tension headache. By putting the pencil in place, you automatically relax your jaw muscle and prevent pain. Music for high blood pressure - Thirty minutes of the right tunes every day can help lower blood pressure, according to a team of Italian researchers. They found that people on a medication for hypertension further lowered their blood pressure after they listened to music while breathing slowly. Systolic readings decreased an average of 3.2 points in a week; a month later, readings were down 4.4 points. Mouthwash for blisters - Strong mouthwash like Listerine, which is also a powerful antiseptic also works on blisters. By dabbing mouthwash on a blister three times a day, it will dry out and eventually stop hurting. Olives or lemons for seasickness - Motion sickness causes you to produce excess saliva,

which can make you nauseated, some doctors say. Compounds in olives called tannins dry out your mouth and can help soothe the queasy sensation. If you happen to have a few olives to hand, it is always worth eating a few at the first sign of nausea. Sucking on a lemon can also do the trick. Dry sugar for hiccups - A teaspoon of sugar swallowed dry can stop hiccups in minutes. The sugar is believed to modify the nerve muscles that would otherwise tell the muscles in the diaphragm to contract spasmodically and contribute to hiccups. Peppermint chewing gum for road rage - In a NASA-funded study, scientists from Wheeling Jesuit University monitored the responses of 25 students during simulated driving scenarios. The volunteers reported that peppermint lowered their feelings of fatigue or anxiety by 20%. Peppermint and cinnamon each decreased frustration by 25%, increased alertness by 30%, and made the ride seem 30% shorter. Tennis ball for achy feet - For an easy, free mini massage that stretches and soothes the arches of your feet, slip off your shoes and roll each foot over a tennis ball, golf ball, or soup can for a minute or two. To cool throbbing feet, roll them over a bottle of frozen water. Vegetable oil for fragile fingernails - The main cause of britle fingernails is lack of moisture. As well as using hand lotion regularly, dermatologists also recommend using putting vegetable oil before going to bed. If you are feeling really committed apply vegetable oil to your hands, then put on vinyl gloves or wrap your hands in plastic wrap to keep the oil off your bedding. The hand coverings force the oil to penetrate your skin, preventing your hands and nails from getting too dry.

De Cotta Law The Spanish Economy and Tax Cuts By De Cotta Law This last year has seen an alarming rise in the number of young people leaving Spain to seek work abroad. The UK has been one of the most popular destinations with a 50% increase in the number of Spanish people registering for a National Insurance number in 2013. Traditionally the northern Europeans have come to Spain for the lifestyle and the sun and now the Spanish emigration north is for employment. The government have recently announced tax cuts aiming to revive the economy and reduce unemployment. Corporation tax is to be reduced in Spain with the first cut to 28% coming in 2015 and a further cut to 25% in 2016. Small and medium sized businesses known as PYMES dominate the Spanish economy and in 2013 the government reduced the tax rates for these companies. For PYMES there will also be new rules to allow some undistributed profits to be set off against future losses to maintain a lower tax rate under certain conditions. New and start-up businesses are now taxed at 15% on the first 300.000€ and at 20% thereafter during their first tax return year. An established business with a net income of less than 5 million euros and with less than 25 workers will pay 20% on the first 300.000€ and 25% thereafter. Personal tax is also set to be reduced particularly for those on lower incomes. Large families or those looking after elderly or disabled family members will also see substantial reductions in their taxes. The cuts are being brought in over a 2 year period and by 2016 taxpayers will be paying an average of 12.5% less in income tax. Those on lower incomes will benefit the most. For further information or tax enquiries please visit your nearest De Cotta Law office of email in confidence to: tax@decottalaw.net

Children And Marriage Childrens’ views on marriage and all that other boring adult stuff...

whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids. Derrick, age 8

how do you decide who to marry? 1. You´ve got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports and she should keep the chips and dips coming. alan, age 10

what do most people do on dates? 1. Dates are for having fun and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. Lynette, age 8

2. No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with. kristen, age 10 what is the right age to get married? 1. 23 is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then. Camille, age 10 2. No age is good to get married at. You´ve got to be a fool to get married. Freddie, age 6 how can a stranger tell if two people are married? 1. You might have to guess, based on

2. On the first date they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date. Martin, age 10 when is it ok to kiss someone? 1. When they’re rich. Pam, age 7 2. The law says that you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn’t want to mess with that. Curt, age 7 3. The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It’s the right thing to do. howard, age 8

Greece is a very popular tourist attraction with 16.5 million tourists visiting each year. Conveniently Greece has more airports than most other counties in Europe to cater for its popularity. Greece's economy shrank by 23% between 2008 and 2013, and international lenders predict that it will continue to diminish in the immediate term. No one in Greece can choose to not vote. Voting is required by law for every citizen who is 18 or older. It is compulsory for all Greek men to serve between one year and eighteen months in the Greek national forces.

Linea Directa Registering your vehicle in Spain. Spanish License Plates and Registration Document. Registering a non-Spanish vehicle in Spain is a complex and potentially costly procedure. However, you maybe exempt from Spanish registration tax by getting Spanish number plates within one month of entering the country. But to do this, you need to become a resident. Linea Directa has been insuring expat drivers in Spain for over a decade and understands all the steps involved. Below we outline this process. stEP 1: OBtaiNiNg a CErtiFiCatE OF CONFOrMitY This is a statement by the car’s manufacturer that it conforms to EU regulations. You will need the car’s chassis number to complete this straightforward process online at www.eurococ.eu/en/certificate_of_conformity. The charges for this service will vary according to type of vehicle, make and country of 1st registration. stEP 2: CUrrENt LOg BOOk The vehicle’s original log book showing your name as the owner, the vehicles age and a valid UK address. You will also need the bill of sale for the car. stEP 3: rEsiDENCY iN sPaiN The Spanish residency certificate (Certificado de Empadronamiento) is your official proof of residency in Spain. Your local town hall can provide you with this document. You will need to take your passport and proof of Spanish address (rental contract, contract to purchase or property deeds). stEP 4: OBtaiNiNg a sPaNish MOt CErtiFiCatE All vehicles over 4 years old must be roadworthy and clearly display a valid ITV sticker. The ITV (Vehicle Technical Inspection) must be tested at an authorised centre, just as for an MOT test. You can find out the location of your nearest ITV centre on DGT website (equivalent to the DVLA). You can also call your local centre to make a booking. If the centre is busy, especially pre-summer, this can save a lot of time. The cost can vary but generally is around 40€ for petrol-engine cars and 56€ for diesel-engine cars.

step 5: OBtaiNiNg a sPaNish EQUiVaLENtOF a taX DisC The Spanish Tax Agency can provide your vehicle with a valid “tax disc” for Spain, which must be carried in the car when in use. You will need to complete the relevant form online and pay the amount according to your car’s tax band. You can carry out all these procedures yourself or you can seek the assistance of an accountant to do this for you. We hope the information provided in this article is of interest. If you would like to contact Linea Directa please call 902-123-161 More information on Linea Directa online at www.lineadirecta.com

Missing Cat - Now Found :) The missing cat that was found 200 miles from home hiding out in a London hotel Obi Wan Catobi vanished from his owner's house in Leeds but turned up nine weeks later at an unfinished hotel near Euston train station. The beloved cat was missing for nine weeks and was eventually discovered living underneath the floorboards of a construction site in London - 200 miles away from his Leeds home. How the moggie, named Obi Wan Catobi after the Star Wars character, arrived in the capital is a mystery - but use of 'the force' has not yet been ruled out. He was found in an unfinished hotel near Euston train station last Thursday by construction workers. The RSPCA were called and laid down a humane trap with food to lure the cat out. Rescuers then got the shock of their lives when they checked Obi's microchip which revealed he had strayed all the way from Leeds after going missing in April when his owners moved house. Owner Adam Williams was delighted when he received a call to say Obi was found, the 32-year-old, from Horsforth,

said: “How he got himself down there I have no idea. Some people suggested a train, as the hotel was near Euston train station, but that would have meant him changing several times. “The only thing we can think of is that he got into a contractor’s van which went straight there. But this amazes us as he hates getting in cars or any kind of vehicles - he’s quite a nervous cat. “It might be the mystery we can never solve.” Writing on Facebook before Obi was reunited with Mr Williams, a spokesperson for the RSPCA Central and North East London branch who rescued the cat, said: "Obi the cat is being reunited with his family in Leeds today after we rescued him from a building site in Kings Cross last Saturday! "How he got there will always remain a mystery but we are so pleased for him and his loving owners!” This illustrates how vital it is to microchip your pets!

Heat Related Disorders Brought To Us By Clinica Europa So-called ‘heat syndromes’ are relatively common, especially in areas with high temperatures and high relative humidity, and even more so if one is unlucky enough to encounter a heatwave. Usually, a normal body temperature in humans is maintained despite physical activity and extreme environmental conditions, thanks to physiological compensatory mechanisms. Some of these include heat radiation from the body surface and evaporation of water through sweat. This process is also influenced by the ambient temperature, wind, solar radiation and body immersion as well as humidity in the air. The compensatory mechanisms can fail in certain individuals, such as young children, the elderly, people who suffer from alcoholism and those receiving certain types of medication, especially if they have certain pre-existing chronic diseases. These syndromes are not exclusive to these population groups, but may also be seen in perfectly healthy people who carry out certain physical activities. Several syndromes of varying severity are included within heat syndrome, from simple heat cramps to heatstroke. The symptoms range

from benign cramps, thirst and weakness to impaired judgement, agitation, collapse, seizures, coma and even multiple organ failure. The depletion of water and/or salt is a common cause, along with high temperatures. To prevent this from ruining family holidays, observe a few simple and sensible tips. Most of these are easily followed. *Increase fluid intake before exposure to sun. *make sure those who are more susceptible - such as the elderly and the very young -wear light clothing. *use fans and remain in a cool environment, *take cool baths/showers. *avoid strenuous exercise on very hot days. *use hats and other physical means to avoid direct sun exposure, especially to the head. *avoid being exposed during the hottest hours If someone is suspected to have any of these heat-related disorders, the thing to do is to move him or her to a cool area and lie them down. If they do not recover spontaneously, medical advice should be sought in order to establish the most effective. treatment. Written by Dr. Arielle Perkins/Clinica Europa

Medication & It’s Side Effects All medication has side effects and surgery can carry risks. This has been known for a long time, but‌ Did you also know that alternatives exist, where you can stop or at least relieve pain, inflammation (even of a chronic type), many diseases or discomforts? Even fibromyalgia, tinnitus, carpal tunnel syndrome and allergies to name just a few. Did you know that many patients therefore are spared surgery? Did you also know that more and more doctors of scientific medicine use these treatments with great success, together with their other treatments or even without any additional medication against some diseases because the side effects of the drugs cause new symptoms and discomforts? Did you know that this kind of treatment is gentle and so well tolerated that even children, pregnant women and newborns can be treated with it? Did you know that it is already proven today

that certain drugs cause serious chronic diseases such as allergies, asthma or eczema and others later on if taken by infants under two years? These children will have to live with those diseases in their later lives if they are not treated at an early stage. The effectiveness of these treatments has also been proven for a long time. Sound evidence for this is the fact that nowadays, they are paid for by health insurances in countries such as Great Britain and parts of Germany. Often, only a few treatments are needed -rarely more than 10. Contact me, Bianca, at Clinica Casa Blanca without obligation by phone 952967628 or 659374673, or come to my clinic at Torrox-Costa, Urb.

No Need To Paint Now is the time to have the exterior of your property painted and not repeat the process until 2030. Exterior painting and decorating can be a real chore, many properties on the Costa del Sol due to the unpredictable and severe weather that is experienced at the end of the summer and beginning of spring have to be redecorated every 2 to 3 years. Also, due to poor building techniques, many properties suffer from black mould on the interior due to penetrating damp. Another annoying problem is the Sahara sand rain which gets deposited at least twice a year. In this modern day and age when there are many long life exterior home improvements such as UPVC windows, doors, and shutters etc, which can last for 20 years or more, why can't the same technology be applied to exterior masonry coatings?

Many people are unaware that there is a company called Andura based in Bicester Oxfordshire for over 40 years, who are a BSI registered company and many of their products come with the much coveted British Board of Agrement Certificates. No Need to Paint Costa del Sol are their exclusive agents. Their products are designed and proven to last in excess of 15 years to stop penetrating damp, still allow the walls to breathe and their coatings are fully washable and fade resistant. In these difficult times it pays to protect your property and especially not to have the costly re-decorating responsibility every few years. If you would like to make exterior, painting and maintenance a thing of the past, please feel free to give us a call for an entirely free of obligation survey or see advert below

Irish Funnies :) Murphy told Quinn that his wife was driving him to drink. Quinn thinks he's very lucky because his own wife makes him walk. The late Bishop Sheen stated that the reason the Irish fight so often among themselves is that they're always assured of having a worthy opponent. An American lawyer asked, "Paddy, why is it that whenever you ask an Irishman a question, he answers with another question?" "Who told you that?" asked Paddy.

Forget Luis Suarez! Move over Luis Suarez - the real bad boys of football are here at the World Cup for prisoners. Holland ran out winners of the contest, which was staged inside the high security Lurigancho prison in Lima, Peru.The event is held every four years, and is organized by prison officials to coincide with the real World Cup, as part of a rehabilitation programme.

prisoners in a German camp during World War Two play an exhibition match against a German team, prompting an escape at the end of the game. But the National Penitentiary Institute of Peru hopes the re-enactment will encourage the inmates to take up sports.

Four teams of six players from various prisons in Lima took part, donning the colours of the teams which made it through to the semi finals of the real contest - Brazil, Germany, Argentina and Holland - with Holland beating Germany in the final. It might not have matched the drama of the classic film Escape to Victory, in which Allied

Loom Band Dress

Saddest Cat :(

The loom band craze is reaching new heights as eBay bids for a dress made out of the colourful bands which reaches £153,900

This kitten was born in a litter recently and it has been named 'Purrmanently Sad Cat'

Are you crazy for loom bands? Well now you can own a dress made of them - if you've got a massive £154,000. The loom band craze appears to be reaching new heights as eBay bids for a dress made out of the colourful bands sits at £153,900. The dress, which is made to fit girls aged between four and six, appears to have been weaved from hundreds of the rubber loops by hand. There have been 126 bids so far for the Welshmade garment and there are still more than four days left for the price to go up. The eBay listing, by user helenwright72, gives very little information about the creation of the dress, describing it simply as a “multi coloured dress made from loom bands”.

This newborn kitten has to be one of the most adorable cats ever seen. Its owner said that their cat recently gave birth to a litter and now they have called this little ball of fluff Purrmanently Sad Cat.

New Suit Sir? The doctor said, "Carl, the good news is I can cure your headaches". The bad news is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition which causes your testicles to press on your spine, and the pressure creates one hell of a headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles." Carl was shocked and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for. He had no choice but to go under the knife. When he left the hospital, he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself. As he walked down the street, he realised that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life. He saw a men's clothing store and thought, "That's what I need... a new suit." He entered the shop and told the salesman, "I'd like a new suit." The elderly tailor eyed him briefly and said, "Let's see...size 44 long." Carl laughed, "That's right, how did you know?" "Been in the business 60 years!" the tailor said.

Carl tried on the suit; it fit perfectly. As Carl admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, "How about a new shirt?" Carl thought for a moment and then said, "Sure." The salesman eyed Carl and said, "Let's see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck." Carl was surprised, "That's right, how did you know?" " Been in the business 60 years." Carl tried on the shirt, and it fit perfectly. Carl walked comfortably around the shop, and the salesman asked, "How about some new underwear?" Carl thought for a moment and said, "Sure." The salesman said, "Let's see...size 36." Carl laughed, "Ah ha! I got you, I've worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old." The salesman shook his head, "You can't wear a size 34. A size 34 would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache." New suit - $400 New shirt - $36 New underwear - $6 Second opinion - PRICELESS

Vanishing Spray Supporters on the couch don't want their viewing interrupted and have found a novel way to utilise a referee’s favourite new weapon Vanishing spray has been a great addition to a referees arsenal in Brazil at the World Cup and now supporters at home are getting in on the act. Fans are using their own alternatives of the spray to ensure their that wives/girldon't friends get in the way of the action. Using shaving foam as said alternative, supporters are spraying lines on the floor in own their

homes as markers that their female partners cannot pass. The spray has been labelled as "felony foam" by some in the United States, where the substance is used in the MLS, whilst it is also widely used in domestic football in South America also. A great idea from the lads in the tweets, showing in both photos. Hopefully women keen on watching the action who have other halves who don't want to see the tournament, are using similar means to dominate the television this summer.

Random Joke :)

The Spanish tax authority is looking into the possibility of increasing taxes on empty second homes

Last week, Ethel checked into a motel on her 60th birthday and she was a bit lonely. She thought, "I'll call one of those men you see advertised in phone books for escorts and sensual massages." She looked through the phone book, found a full page ad for a guy calling himself Tender Tony - a very handsome man with assorted physical skills flexing in the photo. He had all the right muscles in all the right places, thick wavy hair, long powerful legs, dazzling smile, six pack abs and she felt quite certain she could bounce a sixpence off his well oiled bum.... She figured, what the heck, nobody will ever know. I'll give him a call. "Good evening, ma'am, how may I help you? Afraid she would lose her nerve if she hesitated, she rushed right in, I hear you give a great massage. I'd like you to come to my motel room and give me one. No, wait, I should be straight with you. I'm in town all alone and what I really want is sex. Bring implements, toys, rubber, leather, whips, everything you've got in your bag of tricks. We'll go hot and heavy all night - tie me up, cover me in chocolate syrup and whipped cream, anything and everything, I'm ready!! Now how does that sound?" Absolutely fantastic, but you need to press 9 for an outside line." I am the motel receptionist

The Spanish government is outlining the last details of the future tax reform, so that the text is ready in June. One of the government measures consists of increasing income tax for taxpayers owing assets without activity. Experts believe that the most probable option is increasing the percentage of real estate rents for income tax, which is currently applied to second homes, in that they are urban properties and they are not subject to any business activity or not rented. This option is not to be applied to plots without buildings or properties under construction. At the same time, in connection to property transfer tax, real estate conveyance would be sought to be reduced in order to promote this type of transactions. The information provided in this article is not intended to be legal advice, but merely conveys general information related to legal issues. See main advert below

& t i u Fr Facts Veg rrotts

a C Naturally sugary, delicious and crunchy,

Carrots are notably rich in anti-oxidants, vitamins and dietary fibre. They provide only 41 calories per 100g, a negligible amount of fat and no cholesterol. They are exceptionally rich source of carotenes and vitamin-A. 100g fresh carrot contains 8285 µg of beta-carotene and 16706 IU of vitamin A. Studies have found that flavonoid compounds in carrots help protect from skin, lung and oral cavity cancers. Beta-carotene – which gives the carrot its orange colour -- is the major carotene that is present in these roots. It is a powerful natural anti-oxidant that helps protect body from harmful oxygen-free radical injury. Carotenes are converted into vitamin A in the liver during digestion. Vitamin A helps to maintain good eye health, aid reproduction (sperm production) and maintain epithelial integrity, growth and development. Carrots are rich in the poly-acetylene antioxidant falcarinol. Research study conducted by scientists at the University of Newcastle on laboratory animals has found that falcarinol in carrots may help fight against cancers by destroying pre-cancerous cells in the tumours. One study found that current smokers who did not consume carrots had three times the risk of developing lung cancer compared with those who ate carrots more than once a week. Fresh roots are also high in vitamin C; this provides about 9% of RDA. Vitamin C is a water-

soluble anti-oxidant. It helps the body maintain healthy connective tissue, teeth and gums. Its anti-oxidant property helps the human body protect against diseases and cancers by its scavenging action on harmful free radicals. In addition, carrots are especially rich in many B-complex groups of vitamins such as folic acid, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), thiamine and pantothenic acid, which act as co-factors to enzymes during substrate metabolism in the body.

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts La Ruta Mudejar

The 4th Axarquia tour follows La Ruta Mudéjar. We drive 75kms through 5 municipalities in search of Muslim architecture which developed from 12th to 16th centuries. Not really a pure style it was constructed for Christians by the Moors and native Andalusians who did not convert to Christianity but nevertheless remained in the area. The expression Mudejar Style was first used in 1859 by José Amador de los Ríos who was an acheologist and Andalusian historian. The starting point of this route is in the village of Arenas and to get there the easiest way is through Vélez-Málaga on the A117 which is 10km of winding country road full of almonds, olives and vines. If you happen to drive there on 12th October the village will be celebrating its Mule Fair so you probably won´t get much further and may as well enjoy the free paella and festivities. The Mudejar influence in Arenas can be seen in the 16th century parish church of Santa Catalina. Archez is the next stop on this route, it sits on the Sayalonga river valley and the foothills of the Tejeda and Almijara. From its arab past only one jewel remains, the minaret of the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Encarnación which stands 15 metres high and dates from the 15th century. It was declared a national historic artistic monument in 1979 by royal decree and is decorated with entwined diamond shapes with curved edges which are cut away above the brick. Driving inland and upwards to 579 metres our next stop is Salares, situated on the very edge of the Tejeda National Park and Game reserve. This white gem of a village is steeped in history and was inhabited by the Phoenicians, Greeks and Carthaginians. Once known as Salaria Bastitanorum by the Romans the urban design of this tiny

AS2757

village has changed little since Muslim times. You can stretch your limbs here by using the free outdoor gymnasium equipment before climbing up to the Parish Church of Santa Ana, built in Mudejar style on the site of an ancient mosque. Continuing our climb up towards Mount Maroma, at 689 metres above sea level we discover Sedella, so named, according to the town hall website, because Queen Isabella when told of the fight between Christians and Muslims at an area known as Arroyo de la Matanza said, Sé de ella (I know about it). Onwards and upwards to the main square and the most unique building in town, the Casa del Torreón or Tower House, Mudejar in origin and the former home of the Mayor of Donceles, Lord of Sedella, it was built in the 16th century in the Mudejar style over a quadrangular floor plan. The tower has twin arches on Renaissance columns with a beam supported hip roof. Majestically sitting at highest point in the village up a flight of 12 steps is the church of San Andrés with its square two part tower and octagonal belfry, the only vestige of the original 16th century building. Before our final stop on the Mudejar route, just 8kms further on from Sedella you may like to take a refreshing dip in a cool spring as you pass through the Ragihes Nature Reserve with its waterfall and picnic area before visiting Canillas de Aceituno. Be sure to take a sip of this pure water and discover its healing powers! At the top of the final village of our tour is the 16th century Gothic - Mudejar style church of Nuestra Señora del Rosario and the only remains of Arabic origen left in the centre of town are the tower known as the Reina Mora and a well next to the Huertezuelo fountain. Our tour over the best way back is to continue on the same road until you pick up the C-355 to Vélez-Málaga but before wending your way down again do stop to take in the magnificent views of the mountains, lake and distant coast, a real photo opportunity.

5 Ways To Make Your Light Shine Bright Below are five ways you can make your light shine bright during those dull times: 1. Eat well! As simple as it sounds, it is the one thing most people do when the doubts start to creep in. We feel emotional, we feel we need comfort and we turn to food to get that comfort. Be conscious of what you are putting into your body during those times. Choose healthy options as much as possible and your body will continue to help you through and make you feel more alive. 2. Get outside! Reconnect with the earth. When we are feeling under par we tend to want to stay indoors but the sad fact is that it is the outside that we need. Take yourself off to a park or the beach. Walk barefoot so you can reconnect at a base level and allow yourself to feel the energy coming back. 3. Sleep! Don’t be a night owl during these times. Make yourself get at least 8-10 hours’ sleep. Don’t skimp on the sleep. 4. No news! Stay away from television, radio, newspaper and internet news reports. Focusing on the news will only serve to dampen your mood, not lighten it. News broadcasts are designed to highlight negativity – it’s how the news stations keep readers tuning in and how they make their money. Choose not to indulge in it. Fill your time with reading positive books, listening to positive music or meditation tracks. 5. Journal! Rather than pour out your troubles to those around you, journal about what is troubling you. Often it isn’t anything major but when you lock it inside and go over it again and again it can feel like a mountain. Sharing with others, while sometimes can be good, often we then end up taking on someone else’s point of view and that doesn’t necessarily serve us. Instead, journal your feelings and let your intuition guide you to dealing with them.

Profile Name: George Ivan Morrison OBE (also known as Van the Man and The Belfast Cowboy Born: 31 August 1945, Belfast, Northern Ireland Parents: George Morrison, a shipyard electrician, and Violet Stitt Morrison, a singer and tap dancer in her youth Marital status: Married and divorced Janet (Planet) Rigsbee; currently married to Irish socialite Michelle Rocca Children: daughter Shana Morrison, a singersongwriter, with his first wife; son Lee (born 2009 and now deceased) with Texan model and employee Gigi Lee; daughter Aibbe Rocca Morrison, born 2006, and son Fionn Ivan Patrick Morrison, born 2007, with Michelle Morrison began to be known as ‘Van’ in the early 1950s when he attended Elmgrove Primary School, Belfast. Morrison's father had what was at the time one of the largest record collections in Ulster, acquired while he was in Detroit, Michigan, in the early 1950s. Morrison's father bought him his first acoustic guitar when he was 11. A year later, he formed his first band, a skiffle group called The Sputniks, named after the recently launched Soviet satellite, Sputnik 1. When he heard Jimmy Giuffre playing saxophone on ‘The Train and The River’, Morrison talked his father into buying him a saxophone, and took lessons in tenor sax and music reading.

Morrison attended Orangefield Boys Secondary School, leaving in July 1960 with no qualifications. After several short apprenticeship positions, he worked as window cleaner. At age 17, he toured Europe for the first time with the Irish showband, the International Monarchs, playing saxophone, guitar and harp, in addition to back-up duty on bass and drums. Upon returning to Belfast in November 1963, the group disbanded. After moving to New York in 1967, Morrisonfaced deportation due to visa problems. He was only able to stay in the US when his American girlfriend Janet (Planet) Rigsbee agreed to marry him. They divorced in 1973. Morrison’s solo career began with the release of the hit single ‘Brown Eyed Girl’ in 1967. It was captured on the 22nd take on the first day of recording. He began to suffer from acute stage fright at his concerts in the early 1970s, and after taking a break from music, performed at small venues in order to regain his confidence. Morrison moved back to Europe in the late 1970s. In July 2005, Morrison was named by Amazon as one of their top 25 all-time best-selling artistes and inducted into the Amazon.com Hall of Fame. Morrison has received six Grammy Awards, the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, the Ivor Novello Award for Lifetime Achievement and was inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

It is one of the most unusual ocean dwellers. Other species – such as bobtail squids, plankton, anglerfish, jellyfish and cookiecutter sharks – give off coloured light due to a chemical reaction in their bodies, but new research shows that the disco clam has its own individual style. This clam delivers a flashing effect like a disco ball or stroboscopic rope-lights, but unlike the other ‘light fantastics’of the sea, this mollusc is not actually bio-luminescent at all. The tissues there are red with a strip of white along the edge – the latter made up of tiny silica spheres. Silica occurs very rarely in living things, and mostly in plants. It also turns out to be a great medium for the disco light job!

The specie has some 40 eyes, though it's still unknown if the clams can even see their own light shows. In fact, the purpose of these shows itself remains a mystery. Suggestions include attracting matesand/or deterring predators. Brightly marked marine species are often toxic, and while the disco clam isn’t, its flashiness mimics the brightness that predators typically avoid. Another hypothesis is that the clam’s light lures prey—the spider plankton and doe plankton clams eat may be attracted to light.

These finely-tuned reflectors are actually made up of tiny spheres of silica about 340 nanometres across. They're ideally suited to the deeply-penetrating blue light that a clam might encounter deep underwater. The back of the disco clam’s lip is finely tuned as well, only it absorbs blue light instead, with the result being increased contrast between the two sides and, thus, a better light show. These amazing abilities were discovered using high speed video, transmission electron microscopy, spectrometry, x-ray spectroscopy and computer modeling, while ongoing research involves raising the clams in tanks. Part of the purpose of that is to determine if the flashing could perhaps be a method of interclam communication, as well as seeing what they do around predators. The proper name of the disco clam is Ctenoides ales and it is found mostly in the tropical Pacific Ocean. They have been found as deep as 50 metres (164 feet) below the ocean’s surface, and they like deep crevasses.

Film iew ives Rev two L Stylish, gloomy, tautly constructed and extremely well acted, Georg Maas’ “Two Lives” never cuts quite as deeply as it intends, but it’s quite successful in locating a very human hook within the distant aftershocks of the Naziera Lebensborn program in Scandinavia. Opening with the fall of the Berlin Wall, the film centres on Katrine (Juliane Kohler), a young grandmother from an idyllic Norwegian town who, unlike most Norwegian grandmothers, is first seen sneaking into the former East Germany with a wig and an assumed name to scour the archives of old orphanages. International woman of mystery though Katrine may initially seem, her life is actually remarkably domestic, and she quickly returns to her home

with a gruffly affectionate submarine-captain husband (Sven Nordin) and a young law-student daughter (Julia Bache-Wiig). In fact, as far as her family knows, Katrine’s only brush with Cold War politics came decades ago. The daughter of a Norwegian woman and a German soldier, Katrine was taken to Germany in accordance with the Nazi policy of repatriating “racially desirable” wartime babies from Norway into the general German population. Consigned to an orphanage in East Germany after the war’s end, she later escaped to Scandinavia as a teenager and was reunited with her mother (Liv Ullmann). However, when an idealistic lawyer (Ken Duken) approaches her for testimony in his attempt to earn reparations for Lebensborn-affected families, Katrine grows suspiciously hostile, and is soon taking cloak-and-dagger meetings with a group of German heavies who refer to her as “Vera.” Star Rating: ***/*****

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 Difficult for Aries as it may be, if you feel and show gratitude for your encounters, and in particular those special people you have a relationship with, rewards will flood in and deep reciprocated love will finally be experienced TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Appreciate your own highly developed and extremely accurate analytical and discriminating powers, and intuition if you’re a woman, and be assured its beneficial to use them to serve the needs of others AND yourself GEMINI: May 22-June 21 Any love you feel, and gifts you bestow, will be honoured and received in the way you intended. Allow your imagination to grow and relationships and friendships will reward you exponentially CANCER: June 22-July 22 Tell everyone how you feel about them now, don’t wait until its too late and you spend a large part of your life regretting it in aftermath. Write letters, get on the phone and social media. Do it now before its too late LEO: July 23-August 23 The coming year will be influenced by your actions this month Leo. Use free time to study, gather knowledge and develop intuition and instinct. Contact with , and care of, animals remains important VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Stand back and take stock of what really matters! Love and contentment can be at your command, within easy reach, if you let go of what you think is expected and become yourself.

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Lady Luck is smiling on Libra during the hot and steamy month of August. Check your lottery tickets, take part in competitions, auditions and interviews and thank every diety for being alive SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Take up the spiritual sword and become a warrior of your beliefs! Recognise your soul, your core, and focus on what keeps you intact, regenerative and an excellent example to those younger than yourself SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 Join a group that shares your vision, dreams and goals. Be careful with your energy and don’t dissipate your resources among too many for too long. Take support from your friends and those that love you CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 Stop despairing, bones will mend and you’ll feel less lonely and much more able and willing to run with wind and sun gods. Speak to the mountain peaks and the world will hear you Capricorn AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 With your expanded state of consciousness, you are able to direct power of your thought from the future into your past or present. With awareness, you can accelerate and encourage spiritual aspiration in others PISCES: February 20 - March 20 Wearisome as it may appear in relation to your own individuality, and much as you feel deeply unappreciated, allow emotions to be taken up by family and your domestic situation. If you try to untangle yourself, you’ll feel helpless and hopeless, instead learn how to keep life focused!

Once again the group played both nights to packed houses. The Play was cleverly directed by Steve Heugh.

) : a h a Jokes h Murphy, Mick and Paddy were in the pub, a week before Xmas, enjoying a few quiet drinks, when they decided to get in on the Xmas raffle. They bought five â‚Ź1 tickets each, seeing it was for charity. The following week, when the raffle was drawn, they each won a prize. Murphy won the first prize - a whole year's supply of gourmet spaghetti sauce. Mick was the winner of the second prize, six month's supply of extra-long gourmet spaghetti. And Paddy won the sixth prize - a toilet brush. When they met in the pub a week later, Paddy asked the others how they were enjoying their prizes. "Great," said Murphy. "I love spaghetti." "So do I," said Mick. "And how's the toilet brush, Paddy?" "Not so good," Paddy said, "I reckon I'll go back to paper..." -----------------------------------------------------------A really huge muscular guy with a bad stutter goes to a counter in a department store and asks, "W-w-w-where's the m-m-m-men's dep-p-p-partment?" The clerk behind the counter just looks at him and says nothing. The man repeats himself: "W-w-w-where's the m-m-m-men's dep-p-p-partment?" Again, the clerk doesn't answer him. The guy asks several more times: "W-w-w-where's the m-m-m-men's dep-p-p-partment?" And the clerk just seems to ignore him. Finally, the guy storms off in anger. The customer who was waiting in line behind the guy asks the clerk, "Why wouldn't you answer that guy's question?" The clerk answers, "D-d-d-do you th-th-ththink I w-w-w-want to get b-b-b-beat up?!!" -----------------------------------------------------------When Beethoven passed away, he was buried in a churchyard. A couple of days later, the town drunk was walking through the cemetery and heard some strange noise coming from the area where Beethoven was

buried. Terrified, the drunk ran and got the priest to come and listen to it. The priest bent close to the grave and heard some faint, unrecognisable music coming from the grave. Frightened, the priest ran and got the town magistrate. When the magistrate arrived, he bent his ear to the grave, listened for a moment, and said, "Ah, yes, that's Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, being played backwards." He listened a while longer, and said, "There's the Eighth Symphony, and it's backwards, too. Most puzzling." So the magistrate kept listening; "There's the Seventh... the Sixth... the Fifth..." Suddenly the realisation of what was happening dawned on the magistrate; he stood up and announced to the crowd that had gathered in the cemetery, "My fellow citizens, there's nothing to worry about. It's just Beethoven decomposing." -----------------------------------------------------------A man enters a barbershop for a shave. While the barber is foaming him up, he mentions the problems he has getting a close shave around the cheeks. "I have just the thing," says the barber, taking a small wooden ball from a nearby drawer. "Just place this between your cheek and gum." The man places the ball in his mouth and the barber proceeds with the closest shave the man has ever experienced. After a few strokes the client asks, "What if I swallow it?" "No problem," says the barber. "Just bring it back tomorrow like everyone else does." -----------------------------------------------------------What's the fastest way to a man's heart?

Jokes h a ha :) A gentleman walks into a bank in Mayfair and asks for the loan officer. He says he is going to the USA on business for two weeks and needs to borrow £5,000. The bank officer says the bank will need some kind of security for such a loan. So the gentleman hands over the keys to a new Rolls Royce parked on the street in front of the bank. Everything checks out, and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. An employee drives the Rolls into the bank's underground garage and parks it there. Two weeks later, the gentleman returns, repays the £5,000 and the interest, which comes to £15.41. The loan officer says, "We are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is why would you bother to borrow £5,000?" The gentleman replied, "Where else in Mayfair can I park my car for two weeks for £15?" ------------------------------------------------------------A man was traveling north to Scotland. He needed to use the toilet and so at the next stop he goes into a cubicle. He sits down and was surprised to hear someone in the next stall say, "So how you?" The man gulps and thinks about what he should say and then decides to answer. So he clears his throat and says, "Uh....I'm fine." Then the stranger in the next trap says, "So where are you heading?" Again the man, a little nervous answers, "Uh...I'm heading north to Scotland." Then the stranger asked, "So what have you been up to?" Again the man answers, "Not much, I'm actually on a business trip." The man sat there waiting for another question when finally he heard the stranger in the next stall impatiently say, "Look, I'm going to have to call you back, some idiot in the next cubicle thinks I'm talking to him." -------------------------------------------------------------

Not long ago and far away, Santa was getting ready for his annual trip... but there were problems everywhere. Four of his elves got sick, and the trainee elves didn't produce the toys as fast as the regular ones, so Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule. Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her Mum was coming to visit. This stressed Santa even more. When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out...heaven knows where to. More Stress! Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the boards cracked and the toy bag fell to the ground and scattered the toys. Totally frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of coffee and a shot of whisky. When he went to the cupboard, he found the elves had hid the liquor and there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he dropped the coffee pot and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten the straw it was made from. Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cussed on his way to the door. He opened the door and there was a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said: "Where would you like me to put this tree fat man?" And this my friend is how the little angel came to be on top of the Christmas tree.
