m Fro Ed... e the th Is it really Christmas time already? It seems like this year has sprouted wings and flown by! However you are spending the season of Goodwill this year, may it be your best yet, full of Love, joy and gifts, not just in the material sense, but those which emanate from the heart. For the first time in nine fast-paced years, I am spending Christmas away from Spain. This year, Christmas 2012, I will be somewhere in the United States (probably LA), where I am heading for three months. Partly this is to promote and market my self-empowerment book launching soon, The Light, which has taken two years of my life to put together and is in order to raise money for seven charities. Despite the pending book launch, I have been guided to the LA by the universe and after a number of synchronicities, including the fact that my true Love lives there, I am answering the very obvious call and packing my bags to prepare for the trip. I’m not sure exactly how, where or with whom I will be celebrating Christmas this year, but in truth I am looking forward to something different and spontaneous. I feel that this year will be less about things and what I can get, and more about the subtle realm and what I can give – not physical presents, but Love to those who need it; shining the Light on those who are seemingly in the dark. As I am writing this editorial column, a message is coming to me direct from the Light and it goes like this: “Towards the end of this year, whoever you are with and whatever you may be doing, do not forget that you are Divine and Eternal. That means you will never die in the sense of disappearing forevermore. This planet – earth – is only the place which you are existing Now, but it is not the place where you will continue to exist throughout the rest of time. You are a Light being, also existing outside of the constraints of your physical body. The body is simply a container for your true self and that (your Soul) also exists simultaneously in the higher realms,

inside owl - An agoraphobic owl which is afraid of flying outside has been given his own red brick house in Liverpool. Gandalf, the Great Grey owl, gets scared flying out in the open so his owners built his aviary inside a brick shed. He now spends his days watching the world go by out of his window. "He is a bit of a wuss as he doesn't like flying in big open spaces," said owner Janet Southard, who runs the Wild Arena photography company, based inside Knowsley Safari Park near Liverpool. When we moved here we put him in the shed temporarily while we built his aviary outside. But he didn't want to move so now he has an aviary inside the lovely red brick shed. He loves sitting at the window and watching the other birds."

Wishing you all a peaceful and loving Christmas, from everyone at The Sentinella…

trunk calls - An Asian elephant called Koshik has astounded scientists - by learning to speak Korean. Researchers report that the mammal has learned to imitate human speech and can say five words in Korean. The zoo animal places the tip of his trunk into his mouth to transform his natural low rumble into a convincing impression of a human voice. It means elephants join a growing list of animals able to mimic human speech, from parrots and mynah birds to the recently reported case of a human-sounding beluga whale. The study's lead author Dr Angela Stoeger, from the University of Vienna, said she first came across Koshik after videos of the elephant were posted on YouTube. After making contact with his owners, she went to his home, Everland Zoo in South Korea, to study his unusual vocal talent. Dr Stoeger said: "We asked native Korean speakers to write down what they understood when we played back recordings from Koshik." They found that Koshik's calls correlated to five Korean words meaning: "hello," “sit down,” "no,” “lie down” and “good."

De Cotta Law A Lasting Power of Attorney for UK assets Sandra Wrightson, Partner, De Cotta Law this month we continue our feature on Power of attorneys. this time we focus on the ‘Lasting Power of attorney’ that can be used for Uk assets. what is a Lasting Power of attorney (LPa)? It is a legal document that appoints someone to undertake actions and execute documents on your behalf. Often used by those that wish to plan ahead and set out in advance what they would like to happen should they become unable to make decisions for themselves in the future. The rules on this changed fairly recently and for some it appears more bureaucratic and time consuming. The LPA superseded the old Enduring Power of Attorney in October 2007. An LPA is a Legal Document under UK law which allows someone that you have chosen, to act on your behalf if you were unable to act for yourself due to infirmity or lack of mental ca-

pacity. how does a LPa work? Firstly, an application must be made to the Office of the Public Guardian, outlining who you wish to appoint as your Attorney. You can have more than one Attorney if you choose. Within the document you can state whether you wish to restrict your Attorneys in any way. For instance, you may allow them to make decisions for you regarding some aspects of your property or investments, however, you could restrict them from making decisions or taking action relating to others. It is up to you. When the application forms have been completed, signed and witnessed, they are registered with the Court of Protection in the UK. Once registration is complete (this takes about 12 weeks) the LPA can be used by your Attorney to carry out transactions on your behalf. who can have an LPa? You must be over 18 years of age, of sound mind when appointing your Attorneys and have assets in the UK. You do not have to live in the UK. what happens if you do not have an LPa? In the past, it was usual for family members to look after their relatives and to act for them when they became infirm or incapacitated. Children would care for parents and married couples would continue to look after each other’s affairs. Under the provisions of the Mental Capacity Act 2005 which incorporates legislation surrounding LPA’s, this is no longer possible. If you have not appointed an Attorney then no-one can act for you.

Inner Peace This is so true... If you can start the day without caffeine, If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles, If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it, If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time, If you can take criticism and blame without resentment, If you can conquer tension without medical help, If you can relax without alcohol, If you can sleep without the aid of drugs, Then You Are Probably the Family Dog!

Kids In Church 3-year-old Reese: 'Our Father, Who does art in heaven, Harold is His name. Amen.' ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A little boy was overheard praying: 'Lord, if you can't make me a better boy, don't worry about it. I'm having a real good time like I am.' ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ After the christening of his baby brother in church, Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the boy replied, 'That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home, and I wanted to stay with you guys.' ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ One particular four-year-old prayed, 'And forgive us our trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets.' ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ A Sunday school teacher asked her children as they were on the way to church service, 'And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?' One bright little girl replied, 'Because people are sleeping.'

The colour white projects purity, cleanliness, and neutrality. Doctors don white coats, brides traditionally wear white gowns and a white picket fence surrounds a safe and happy home. White is said to: aid mental clarity; encourage us to clear clutter or obstacles; evoke purification of thoughts or actions; enable fresh beginnings. White is the traditional colour worn by brides in the western world, as well as in Japan, but it is the colour of mourning in China and parts of Africa. It was the colour of deepest mourning

among medieval European queens, a tradition which survived in Spain until the end of the 15th century. It was the custom for the Queens of France to wear deuilblanc or "white mourning." In Chinese culture, colours corresponded with the five primary elements, the directions and the four seasons. White was associated with metal, west and autumn. A white flag is universally recognised as a symbol of truce. The ancient Greeks wore white to bed to ensure pleasant dreams. In Christianity, a white lily represents the Madonna. According to leading manufacturers, white is still the best selling colour for the classic t-shirt. If you drive a white vehicle, the message you send by driving is that you are fastidious.

Wincham International Limited spanish inheritance tax – the 4 ½ year misconception explained Many of our Clients have informed us they have been advised that they should not inform the Spanish Authorities should a registered owner of a Spanish property pass away. The idea is that waiting 4.5 years before notifying the authorities of the death will mean that the Statute of Limitations will have passed and therefore no Tax will be payable. This is a misconception as it only means the Tax Authorities cannot issue a demand unless they can prove that Tax Evasion has taken place – in this instance the Statute of Limitations does not apply as Tax evasion is a Criminal Offence. In addition there are a number of issues which also need to be considered 1. It is a Legal requirement to Probate in Spain and pay all Taxes due within six months of a death – failure to do so will result in fines and interest being levied on the unpaid Tax. 2. Should the Taxes remain unpaid then the Spanish Authorities have the right to Embargo the property to ensure that Taxes are paid prior to the property being disposed of. This Embargo will also attract hefty costs in order to remove it. 3. It is a legal obligation for owners of Spanish property to submit an annual Tax Declaration in respect of the property. It will be necessary to continue submitting the Returns for the deceased person during the 4.5 years which is technically fraudulent. 4. It is illegal to operate a Bank Account in the name of a deceased person. 5. Complications arise should a further Registered owner of the property pass away before Probate has been completed. 6. In many cases the remaining property owner will often decide some months after a bereavement that they do not wish to occupy the property without their loved one and that they would really rather sell up and return home to family and friends in the UK. This will obviously mean the property will need to be registered correctly before it can be sold – taxes will need to be paid and any fines incurred discharged. 7. As a UK Executor of a UK Estate there is a responsibility to discharge all Taxes prior to the distribution of assets. Should all Taxes not be discharged before distribution of assets then the Executor may be personally liable for any outstanding taxes. Under recent legislation debts due in the Spanish jurisdiction can now be collected through the UK Courts. Given the on-going financial crisis that the Spanish economy is enduring there has been considerably more pressure placed upon Autonomous Regions to try to combat the lack of funds by raising and collecting outstanding taxes. As we have previously highlighted in our articles, over the past 12 months in Spain both residents and non-residents have experienced an increase in Capital Gains Tax (CGT), Wealth Tax being reintroduced, Non Resident Income Tax increased and the investigation of undeclared resale purchases within the last 4 years and it is likely that the non-payment of Inheritance Tax will also come under scrutiny in the near future. so what can be done to mitigate the impact of inheritance tax in spain? The Wincham Solution- Our solution simplifies matters by assisting Clients to invest their Spanish property into a UK company, of which they are both Directors and shareholders, ensuring they remain in control of the asset whilst eradicating Spanish IHT. Contrary to popular belief there is no 7-10% Property Transfer Tax payable on this transaction. Our method enables clients to utilise Spanish legislation to conveniently own and maintain their home within a corporate structure in the most tax efficient way. Some Spanish paralegals recommend the use of an Off-Shore Company to own a Spanish property, this type of company is subject to an additional 3% tax burden each year. A UK company is not classed as Off-Shore and therefore does not have this additional 3% tax to pay. If you would be interested in receiving your Free Spanish Inheritance tax Illustration and the opportunity to discuss how this method of ownership could benefit your personal circumstances please visit www.winchamiht.com or scan the QR code below.

interesting Facts - With national parks, rare indigenous birds and the second-largest boiling lake in the world, Dominica is potentially a great tourist attraction. But poor infrastructure and the absence of a large airport has impeded the industry's growth. Christopher Columbus visited the island in 1493. As he landed on a Sunday, he called the island Dominica (Sunday Island). During the early seventeenth century, both the British and French had settlements on Dominica. Dominica gained its independence in 1978. In November 2004 an earthquake occurred in the north of Dominica causing millions of dollars of damage. Dominica suffered from hurricanes in 1979 (Hurricane David), 1980 (Hurricane Allen), 1995 (Hurricane Luis) and 1999 (Hurricane Lenny).

The Whale shark is the biggest fish in the world. A shark does not have one bone in its body. Its skeleton is made up of cartilage, a tough material similar to that which shapes the human ear. The Swell shark, found in New Zealand, barks like a dog. Weird things have been found inside a shark,

such as a nail, a bottle of wine, a treasure chest, coats, a suit of armour, a drum and a torpedo. A shark’s skin is covered with denticles, which are small, razor-sharp teeth. These can be removed from a shark’s body, and afterwards, the remaining skin can be made into very strong leather. A pair of shoes made from shark leather can last up to four times longer than shoes made with cowhide. Sharks have very good senses. Sometimes a shark is called “a swimming nose”, for its great sense of smell. They can easily detect prey which is in the sand, as well as at night.

Amazing Marine Life (Continued) A shark also has a remarkable sensitivity to vibrations in the water. It can feel the movements made by other animals hundreds of feet away, and can hear sounds from thousands of feet away. They can tell the direction from which the sound is coming, too. Sharks cannot eat Puffer fish, because the Puffer fish inflates like a balloon and pokes the shark’s mouth with its sharp needles. Most sharks give birth to their babies; only a few sharks lay eggs. Most sharks have six to twelve babies at a time, but the Hammerhead and Tiger shark can have as many as 40 babies at a time. Most species of sharks can swim up to 20-40

mph. A Makoshark has been recorded at more than 60 miles per hour. A shark has three types of fins. They have two dorsal fins on their back, one fin beneath their body — called the pectoral fin (not all species have it) — and the caudal fin is the tail. A Whale shark has more than 4,000 teeth, but each is less than 1/8 inch long. A shark may go through 1,000 sets of teeth during its lifetime; when it loses a tooth, one replaces it. A Whale shark weighs about 90,000 pounds. The second largest shark is the Basking shark, which can be as much as 40 feet long. A wasp or bee is more dangerous to humans than a shark: every year, 100 people die from wasp or bee stings, yet hundreds of millions of people go swimming, and sharks kill only about six of them! Only about 25 sharks have been known to actually attack people, but every year, people kill thousands of sharks. They are killed for food, oil, skins and sport.

Christmas Party Games Get the party started!!!! What Is In The Stocking? things required Pair of large stockings Ribbon 20 Christmas materials like Santa Claus dummy, star, Christmas tree craft, plastic balls, bells, bird house, candies, North Pole, candle, place card holder and the likes. Procedure Take a large stocking. Fill it with the Christmas materials as stated above. Tie the open end with ribbon. Make the family members sit in a circle. The first person gets the stocking. He touches the things from outside the stocking and guesses what it could be. He has to write them on the paper. Allot 2-3 minutes per person. Then he passes the stocking to the person next to him and he repeats the same process. The game continues until the last person writes his note. Collect the notes from each of the participants.

Untie the ribbon and take out the stuff one by one and show it to your guests. The person who get the maximum guesses right is the winner of the game. Drop The Snowball things required White ball A basket Whistle Procedure Divide the family into pairs. Give a white colour ball to each pair. Keep equal number of baskets as the number of pairs in another corner of the room. Keep the baskets with some space in between. Each pair has to stand back to back with a ball tucked in between their backs. With the blowing of whistle, the pairs have to move towards the basket taking care that their ball does not fall down in the middle. If it falls they need to go back to the starting point and start again. They need to drop the ball in the basket. The pair to do it first is the winner of the game.

Adult Truths A few home truths to think about...

between boredom and hunger.

Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch three consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

How many times is it appropriate to say “what” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realise your’re wrong.

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their mobile phone, pinning the tail on the Donkey - but I’d bed everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

There is a great need for a sarcasm font. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet? Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died. Bad decisions make good stories. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day. I have had a hard time deciphering the fine line

Map quest really needs to start their directions on no. 5. I’m pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighbourhood. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger. The first tentacular guard, the ‘Cup’, was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realise that their brain is also important.

The first time movie audiences were treated to a flushing toilet was in Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 release Psycho. In the original 101 Dalmatians movie, Pongo has 72 spots, Perdita has 68 and each of the puppies has 3. Niether the emu or kangaroo can walk backwards. This is why they're on the Australian Coat of Arms. The average cough comes out of your mouth at 60mph. Any free-moving liquid in outer space will form itself into a sphere, because of it's surface tension.

If a spider dismantles his web, that means a bad storm is near. If a surgeon in Ancient Egypt lost a patient while performing an operation, his hands were cut off. The world's largest McDonalds is located on I-44 at Vinita, Oklahoma. It goes from one side of the interstate to the other, passing over the interstate. Raindrops aren't actually tear-drop shaped. They are rounded at the top and flat on the bottom. One day on the planet Pluto is about the length of a week on Earth. When the Titanic sunk there was 7,500 lbs of ham on it.

Recipe Of The Month Christmas butter This butter is guaranteed to give you a turkey to impress. It looks beautiful, gives a delicate sweetness and holds the skin away from the meat so it gets extra crispy as it cooks. Another bonus is that the butter’s journey out of the turkey will give you a self-basting bird. It’s a job for Christmas Eve; it won’t take long and will guarantee you happiness the day after. ingredients • 1 x 250g pack of butter • 75g dried cranberries, really finely chopped • a few sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves picked • 4 fresh rosemary sprigs, leaves picked • a few sprigs of fresh sage, leaves picked • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper • 1 clementine Method - 1) Put your butter into a bowl and add the chopped cranberries. Chop, sweep and run your knife through the herb leaves until really finely chopped, then add to the butter with a pinch of salt and pepper, and the finely grated zest of your clementine. Mix so the butter softens and everything is combined. Divide the

butter roughly in half. 2) Get your turkey and use a spoon to work your way between the skin and the meat. Start at the side of the cavity just above the leg and work gently up toward the breastbone and towards the back so you create a large cavity. Pick up half of your butter and push it into the cavity you’ve created. Use your hands to push it through the skin right to the back so it coats the breast meat as evenly as possible. Do the same on the other side then rub any leftover butter all over the outside of the bird to use it up. If you’ve got any herb stalks left over, put them in the cavity of the turkey for added flavour as it cooks. Cover the turkey in cling film and put in the fridge until you’re ready to cook it the next day. Enjoy!

New Mum in Town - The First Bath By Helen It's 8pm, Papi is home and it's time to bath our beautiful baby girl for the first time. What a special moment this will be... The checklist: warm bedroom, pyjamas and TWO towels heating up, cream for the after massage, relaxing music, low lighting, perfect water temperature (according to the midwife, checking it with your elbow is much more accurate than checking with your hand or using a thermometer — money wasted there then), baby bathgel (personal preference but I'm a fan of Johnson's) and a little lavender oil. It's all ready. It seems I have prepared the most perfect first bath; Jazmin will surely love it! I am feeling rather good about everything as, so far, it is all going 'A okay'. I seem to have it all under control. I guess you could say that I'm a natural — maybe I actually am Supermum! Anyhow, back to the task at hand. I lovingly undress my darling little girl and I call Papi. We must remember not to completely submerge her, as the umbilical cord is still attached. I feel confident. It's time; another special moment awaits...1, 2, 3...in she goes... ARGH, OH MY DAYS...SHE HATES IT! The tears, the screams (and that's only me) — I cannot believe it! Supermum — yeah right! What has gone wrong? I prepared everything to ensure that this did not happen! The organisation and teamwork disappears as quickly as the water, along with my confidence. I have been transformed into 'Stressymum'. Forget about the massage, I just want her dressed ASAP and this ordeal over with. My fumbling fingers struggle to dress my delicate, screaming little baby (I had forgotten how well-developed her lungs are.) I'm hot, fat (not that that has anything to do with it) and hormonal...again. I become overwhelmed with the bathtime situation and I break down. As usual the hormones kick in at the most inopportune moment. Papi takes the dogs for some fresh air, and the tears flow — I must try to control myself but it's hard; maybe the Nurse will have some top tips when she comes. Calm is restored as my baby girl is finally dressed, and snuggled up with her deflated Mummy. Jazmin seems happy as Larry sucking away on

a plastic nipple, so it couldn't have been as bad as I thought. Hormones have a lot to answer for! I inhale her intoxicating smell (how can they use baby cologne here?). Her steady breathing lulls me into a peaceful state. WOW — that was tiring and I am exhausted, but these precious moments do make it all worthwhile. Nothing can compare to this. Feeding time is so magical, despite the pain it can cause — the leaking nipples, the awkward timing... It is just my baby girl and me, in a bubble which no-one can burst. I begin to drift off when I realise that I haven't had any medics visit me. Maybe the nurse isn't coming after all. I have so much to ask but maybe in Spain, home visits aren't the ‘done thing.’ Now what do I do..? Who do I talk to...? Oh, never mind. I am not going to worry about it now. Tomorrow is another day and I can deal with everything again then...although I may leave bathtime for a while! Sleep soon overcomes me and I embrace it, as I know that I will be up again in three hours. Welcome to Motherhood...and this is only the beginning! More next month...

Is Santa Claus A Woman or A Man ? Santa Claus is a woman because: The vast majorities of men don't even think about selecting gifts until Christmas Eve and only go for a last-minute shopping spree.

Santa is certainly a Man because:

Men can't pack a bag.

Santa's reindeer is so drunk that his nose glows as his navigator. A woman would never let out those cute deer to work on Christmas Eve that too in cold and perhaps would dress them in sweaters and booties.

Men would rather be dead than caught wearing red velvet.

Only a male Santa can ignore 'fashion' and wear the same suit for 500 years.

Men would feel their masculinity is threatened... having to be seen with all those elves.

Women aren't interested in stockings unless someone better looking than them is wearing them.

Men would refuse to allow their physique to be described even in jest as anything remotely resembling a "bowlful of jelly." Men aren't interested in stockings unless somebody's wearing them. Having to do the 'Ho Ho Ho' thing would seriously inhibit their ability to pick up women. Finally, being responsible for Christmas would require a commitment.

As many presents as Santa delivers he has no trouble with babes. Only men have the ability to stay up for 24 hours straight in the cold with a bunch of mangy deer and going up and down soot-infested chimneys. A woman would never even think of going down a chimney and risk staining that red velvet.

Macharaviaya

Is probably best known for being home to the noble Galvez family, who completely uplifted the village and the lives of the people who lived there in the 18th century by bringing prosperity to a small town struggling to survive. Joseph Gálvez, who was a doctor became the patron and mayor of Málaga and his statue can be seen in the gardens of the Cathedral. Due to this family the royal factory of playing cards (Fábrica de Naipes) was built in 1766. Following a royal warrant issued by King Charles III the factory was granted the monopoly to trade with the Americas and supplied the whole of the Spanish Indies, producing 30,000 decks a year. These cards were made using cardboard manufactured in Benalmádena and Maro and were the most expensive in Spain. The factory is still in the village today but is now a private home. The knock on effect of this trading raised the living standards in the village, the streets were paved, there was an open air theatre, a washhouse and a road built to connect Macharaviaya to Málaga. The older inhabitants of the village started to call it Little Madrid! Today you cannot visit the village without noticing the references to the Gálvez family. For example, the best place to leave your car whilst touring the village on foot is in Matías de Gálvez Square. There is the mausoleum which holds the remains of José de Gálvez in a magnificent tomb. Another important family member, Miguel Gálvez, became Spanish embassador in Russia and introduced Catherine the Great to the sweet wine produced from the Axarquia´s muscatel grapes, she enjoyed it so much that it became a common feature at her banquets and she approved its exportation to Russia, before long it became popular in all the Royal Courts in Europe. Yet another family member, José´s

nephew and Matías´s son, Bernardo de Gálvez y Madrid, Count of Gálvez was a soldier who defeated the British army at Pensacola in 1781 and reconquered Florida for Spain during the American revolutionary war. There is an image of Don Bernardo in the square named after him, with a plaque informing of his victories and defeats. If you have never heard of him before reading this article don´t worry because you will almost certainly have heard of the city in Texas that he founded in the name of King Charles III, Galveston! The church of San Jacinto was erected by the archbishop of Seville, Diego de Deza in 1505, shortly after the conquest of Axarquia by the Catholic Monarchs. Neo-Classical elements were added to its original Baroque style in the 17th and 18th centuries. Sadly by the end of 1990 it was almost a ruin however, luckily the Spanish Society of Fifth Centenaries Commemorative renovated it completely in 1992 and now it is retained by the town hall and used for Catholic worship as well as being the main culture site of the town. In August every year, during its Cultural Week, the village hosts a festival honouring the patron saint of the village, Bernado. There are exhibitions, musical and dancing performances, cultural events and competitions, traditional verdiales, classical music in the church and street processions. The village is 25 kilometres from VélezMálaga, 27 kilometres from Málaga and 8 kilometres from the coast. It lies at 240 metres above sea level and is on the scenic Route of Sun and Avocado. To visit Macharaviaya you really do step back in time. It is almost picture postcard in its attractiveness, with cobbled streets, houses with wooden blinds hanging over balconies providing shade for the occupants one never sees and a feeling of history so vivid that each new turn provides a flash back to a life never forgotten. Meander, take your time and enjoy this historic place that is Macharaviaya.

Property Of The Month AS1725 Macharaviaya 490,000€

360m2 Period, traditional country house set across the river from the village on a 29,000m2 plot with 2 wells and an avocado plantation. During XIX century it was a wine mill. Living room on 3 levels, master bedroom suite with fireplace. Reading room with benches. 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, tastefully restored and updated reatining original charm and character. The property could do with a new roof hence the huge reduction in price from the original 1,000,000€. The property has been published in interior country living magazines and brought back to its original glory would be worth a lot of money. There is a stone threshing floor (Era) and an old fashioned water reservoir (Alberca). Part of the land is terraced by a XVIII century stone wall.

Random Joke :)

A woman went to the doctor's office where she was seen by one of the younger doctors. After about four minutes in the examination room, she burst out screaming and she ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she told him her story. After listening, he had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched down the hallway back to where the young doctor was writing on his clipboard. "What the hell is the matter with you?!" the older doctor demanded. Mrs. Terry is 71 years old, has four grown children and seven grandchildren and you told her she was pregnant?" The younger doctor continued writing and without looking up said, "Does she still have the hiccups?" -------------------------------------------------------------Two older women were having lunch together while discussing the merits of cosmetic surgery. The first woman said, "I need to be honest with you. I'm getting a boob-job." The second woman responded, "Oh, that's nothing. I'm thinking of having my arse hole bleached!" "Oh Dear!" replied the first woman. "I just can't picture your husband as a blonde!"

Full Name: Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio Birthday: November 11, 1974 age: 38 sign: Cancer Birthplace: Los Angeles, California Marital status: Single Children: None Occupation: Actor Claim to fame: Titanic He was named Leonardo because his pregnant mother was looking at a Leonardo da Vinci painting in a museum in Italy when she first felt her baby kick inside her. His parents divorced when he was a year old and he lived mostly with his mother, who remarried. He was signed up with a talent agent who wanted Leonardo to perform under the stage name "Lenny Williams." He refused. He was booted off the set of children's television series “Romper Room” at the age of five for being “disruptive.” DiCaprio had bit parts on several shows, including “The New Lassie” and “Roseanne,” as well as a brief stint on the soap opera “Santa Barbara.” In 1992, he joined what became the final sea-

son of the popular US sitcom "Growing Pains." His debut film role was in the low-budget comedic sci-fi horror film “Critters 3,” in which he played the stepson of an evil landlord. DiCaprio initially refused to portray Jack Dawson in Titanic, but was eventually encouraged to pursue the role by James Cameron who strongly believed in his acting ability. While filming “The Beach” off the coast of Thailand, he and others were swept off a camera boat by strong winds and waves. No one was injured. DiCario was reunited with Titanic costar Kate Winslet to film the drama Revolutionary Road in 2008, directed by Winslet's then-husband Sam Mendes. In 2005, his face was seriously injured when model Aretha Wilson hit him over the head with a broken bottle at a Hollywood party. After pleading guilty in 2010, Wilson was sentenced to prison for two years. In 2009, he bought an island off of mainland Belize on which he is planning to create an eco-friendly resort. He has been nominated for the Golden Globe Award eight times as an actor, and won it for his performance in The Aviator (2004). He has also been nominated by the Academy Awards, Screen Actors Guild, Satellite Awards, and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts. DiCaprio owns a production company named Appian Way Productions, whose projects include the films Gardener of Eden (2007) and Orphan (2009). In 2010, he donated $1,000,000 to relief efforts in Haiti after the earthquake. He has dated a string of glamorous supermodels, including Blake Lively, Gisele Bundchen and Bar Refaeli. He split with his latest girlfriend, Erin Heatherton, last month, citing ‘hectic lifestyles’ and ‘work commitments.’

Film iew Rev fall y sk

Skyfall is the best Bond film yet. Daniel Craig plays Bond for the third time, while Javier Bardem is the menacing villain. As one of the most anticipated movies of the year - the 23rd of the franchise – director Mendes had a lot to deliver and he certainly did. Craig stars in Skyfall opposite the best Bond girl yet, Judi Dench's 'M' who is the emotional anchor of the film. With Dench's character on the cusp of forced retirement, Skyfall's plot brings everything that bit closer to home, adding a layer of sentimentality not usually found in a Bond film.

The back and forth between M and Bond is fantastic. The edge-of-your-seat action scenes are as impressive as you'd expect, with one in particular making you less than excited about your next experience on the London Underground. What's most commendable about Skyfall however, is learning about the more personal details of Bond’s past. Skyfall is far better than its lukewarm predecessor Quantum Of Solace. Cheeky, actionpacked and emotionally satisfying, there's little more here you could want. Star Rating - *****/***** a must-see

LT Construction RETAINING WALLS

with additional features.

Retaining walls are technically challenging, with many different factors needing to be taken into account such as soil type, location, positioning, design, drainage, size and wall type.

I frequently receive phone calls from people who have spent substantial amounts of money on retaining walls which have subsequently fallen down. This is due to insufficient experience and lack of knowledge by builders who were recommended to them. Any wall should last the lifetime of the property and unfortunately, in my experience, this is seldom the case, resulting in high financial and emotional costs.

Two basic fundamentals remain for all forms of retaining walls: a good solid foundation and the provision of adequate drainage. The retaining wall’s foundation needs to be able to support its weight and provide structural strength. The drainage system needs to be sufficiently robust to allow for any water to flow away freely, as the increase in weight and pressure applied to walling can become immense after rain. The weakest part of any walling is usually the foundation. If this is undermined through defects in the construction process, or compromised by a lack of free flowing drainage, the result invariably will be a collapsed wall. The standard form of wall used to retain a bank is a reinforced concrete one, due to the cost and durability. A plain wall can look very industrial and soulless, but can be enhanced when dressed in stone or rendered and highlighted

Other forms of retaining wall will be covered in future articles. By visiting our website you will be able to see the many varied types of wall in which we have the experience to meet the aesthetic needs and budgetary costs of this most crucial structural element of your garden. LT Construction should be your first choice when deciding on which approach to take in designing a retaining wall. Please contact LT Construction to make sure you get this most important aspect of a garden designed and built well. http://www.ltconstruction.es/

For those of you that knew the lovely Dave Wells, AKA ‘MARBELLA DAVE’,will be deeply saddened to hear that he passed away in his home 5th November. Dave was a well loved character in the community and will be deeply missed by all his friends. Our hearts go out to his love and partner Helena who was his inspiration, motivation and his life. Dave was a great friend of us at The Sentinella and we still can’t believe he is gone. “We never lose the one we love forever.

Random Jokes He was in ecstasy, with a huge smile on his face, as his girlfriend moved forwards then backwards... Forwards then backwards... Back and forth... Back and forth... In and out, in and out.... Her heart was now pounding faster, her face was flushed and she moaned, softly at first, and then began to groan louder and louder. Finally, exhausted, she let out one almighty scream! "OK! ... OK!" ... She cried at last ... "I CAN'T park the friggin’ car! You do it you SMUG G**!" ------------------------------------------------------------Four old friends were playing their weekly game of golf. One remarked how nice it would be to wake up on Christmas morning, roll out of bed and without an argument go directly to the golf course, meet his pals and play a round. His friends all chimed in and said, "Let's do it! We'll make it a priority; figure out a way and meet here early, Christmas morning." Months later, that special morning arrives, and there they are on the golf course. The first player says, "Boy this game cost me a fortune! I bought my wife such a diamond ring that she can't take her eyes off it." The second guy

says, "I spent a ton too. My wife is at home planning the cruise I gave her. She was up to her eyeballs in brochures." The third man says "Well my wife is at home admiring her new car, reading the manual." They all turned to the last one of the group who is staring at them like they have lost their minds. "I can't believe you all went to such expense for this golf game. I slapped my wife on the bum and said, well babe, Merry Christmas! It's a great morning for sex or golf,”and all she said was,“You'll need a sweater.” ------------------------------------------------------------A government survey has shown that 91% of illegal immigrants come to Britain so that they can see their own doctor ------------------------------------------------------------I've just fitted strobe lights in the bedroom. It makes the wife look like she's moving during sex. ------------------------------------------------------------Two Thai girls asked me if I'd like to go bed with them, they said it would be just like winning the lottery! I agreed, and they were right. We all stripped off and to my horror, we had six matching balls!

) : a h a h s e k o J Cinderella is now 95 years old. After a fulfilling life with the now dead prince, she happily sits upon her rocking chair, watching the world go by from her front porch, with a cat named Bob for companionship. One sunny afternoon out of nowhere, appeared the fairy godmother. Cinderella said, 'Fairy Godmother, what are you doing here after all these years'? The fairy godmother replied, 'Cinderella, you have lived an exemplary life since I last saw you. Is there anything for which your heart still yearns?' Cinderella was taken aback, overjoyed, and after some thoughtful consideration, she uttered her first wish: 'The prince was wonderful, but not much of an investor. I'm living hand to mouth on my disability cheques, and I wish I were wealthy beyond comprehension. Instantly her rocking chair turned into solid gold. Cinderella said, 'Ooh, thank you, Fairy Godmother' The fairy godmother replied, 'It is the least that I can do. What do you want for your second wish?' Cinderella looked down at her frail body, and said, 'I wish I were young and full of the beauty and youth I once had.' At once, her wish became reality, and her beautiful young visage returned. Cinderella felt stirrings inside her that had been dormant for years. And then the fairy godmother spoke once more: 'You have one more wish; what shall it be?' Cinderella looks over to the frightened cat in the corner and says, 'I wish for you to transform Bob, my old cat, into a kind and handsome young man.' Magically, Bob suddenly underwent such a fundamental change in his biological make-up that, when he stood before her, he was a man so beautiful the likes of him neither she nor the world had ever seen. The fairy godmother said, 'Congratulations, Cinderella, enjoy your new life.' With a blazing shock of bright blue electricity, the fairy godmother was gone as suddenly as

she appeared. For a few eerie moments, Bob and Cinderella looked into each other's eyes. Cinderella sat, breathless, gazing at the most beautiful, stunningly perfect man she had ever seen. Then Bob walked over to Cinderella, who sat transfixed in her rocking chair, & held her close in his young muscular arms. He leaned in close, blowing her golden hair with his warm breath as he whispered... 'Bet you're sorry now that you cut my nuts off'. --------------------------------------------------------------A young Irish lad moved to London and went to Harrods looking for a job. The manager asked 'Do you have any sales experience?' The young man answered 'Yeah, I was a salesman back home in Cork.' The manager liked the Paddy so he gave him the job. His first day was challenging and busy, but he got through it. After the store was locked-up, the manager came down and asked, 'OK, so how many sales did you make today?' The Paddy said 'One!' The manager groaned and continued, 'Just one? Our sales people average 20 or 30 sales a day. How much was the sale for?' '£124,237.64p.' The manager choked and exclaimed £124,237.64!! What the hell did you sell him?' 'Well, first I sold him a small fish hook, then a medium fish hook and then I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I asked him where he was going fishing and he said down at the coast, so I told him he would need a boat, so we went down to the boat department and I sold him that twin-engine Power Cat. Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to car sales and I sold him the 4x4’. The manager, incredulous, said, 'You mean to tell me...a guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a boat and a 4x4?' 'No, no, no.. he came in here to buy a box of tampons for his lady friend and I said...'Well, since your weekend's buggered, you might as well go fishing.'

Jokes h a h a :) South African Dutchman Van der Merwe had never been out of South Africa. While on holiday in Australia he decided to spend an afternoon visiting Bondi Beach. As he sat on the beach looking out to sea he saw a long line of black dots out in the water and said to an Aussie, who was sitting close by, "What are all those little black things out there?" "They're buoys," said the Aussie. "Boys?!" replied Van der Merwe. "What are they doing out there?" "Holding up the shark net," the Aussie told him. "F****** great country!" said Van der Merwe, deeply impressed, "We'd never get away with that at home! --------------------------------------------------------------The guys were on a GOLF tour. No one wanted to room with Mick, because he snored so badly. They decided it wasn't fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns. The first guy slept with Mick and comes to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot. They said, "Man, what happened to you? He said, "Mick snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night." The next night it was a different guy's turn. In the morning, same thing, hair all standing up, eyes all bloodshot. They said, "Man, what happened to you? You look awful! He said, 'Man, that Mick shakes the roof with his snoring. I watched him all night." The third night was Gerry's turn. He was a tanned, older golfer, a man's man.. The next morning he came to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. "Good morning!" he said. They couldn't believe it. They said, "Man, what happened?" He said, "Well, we got ready for bed. I went and tucked Mick into bed, patted him on the arse, and kissed him good night on the lips. Mick sat up and watched me all night." --------------------------------------------------------------My wife and I walked past a swanky new restaurant last night.

"Did you smell that food?" she asked. "Incredible!" Being the nice guy I am, I thought, "What the heck, I'll treat her!" So we walked past it again. --------------------------------------------------------------An elderly couple, Lucy & John, were recently attending church services at The Villages. About halfway through the service, Lucy took a pen and paper out of her purse, wrote a note and handed it to John. The note said: "I just let out a silent fart, what do you think I should do?" John scribbled back, "Put a new battery in your hearing aid." --------------------------------------------------------------An 8-year-old girl went to her grandfather who was working in the yard and asked him "Grampa, what is couple sex? The grandfather was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decided that if she's old enough to know to ask the question, then she's old enough to get a straight answer. Steeling himself to leave nothing out, he proceeded to tell her all about human reproduction and the joys and responsibilities of intercourse. When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement. Seeing the look on her face, the grandfather asked her, "Why did you ask this question, honey?" The little girl replied, "Grandma says that dinner will be ready in just a couple secs. --------------------------------------------------------------Two Thai girls asked me if I'd like to go bed with them, they said it would be just like winning the lottery! I agreed, and they were right. We all stripped off and to my horror, we had six matching balls! --------------------------------------------------------------I’ve just booked a table for Valentine's Day for me and the wife. It’s bound to end in tears though; she's crap at snooker. --------------------------------------------------------------If you get an email telling you that you can catch swine 'flu from tins of ham then delete it. It's spam.

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21 - April 20 Financial gain is indicated for Arians during December and debts can be successfully paid off. Plans can be turned into reality as you leap toward success. TAURUS: April 21 - May 21 You have a high chance of making progress in both personal and work projects this month. Finances improve so go ahead and buy something new! Bonds formed now will benefit long-term plans, as will an increasing interest in spiritual matters. Married life will hold a mix of sweet and sour moments this December. Despite the party season, students need to work hard!. GEMINI: May 22 - June 21 A great month throughout for romance plus for good news of another nature towards the end of December. An old friend may unexpectedly make contact. Keeping busy will bring benefits; this is not a month for resting on your laurels but it is a good time for travelling abroad. CANCER: June 22 - July 22 A good time to make large purchases – you´ll make the right decision in property and vehicles for example. Unfinished tasks and projects can be quickly completed but don´t ignore any health issues or warnings. Friends will be helpful and well-meaning LEO: July 23 - August 23 With the support of your life partner or close friend, this is a time for Leos to forge ahead with the new and let go of the past. Fill your life with colour, invest in education and enjoy this new period of change VIRGO: August 24 - September 22 If you value your relationship, give your partner some cooperation and time. Understand the value of time and sharing it

and don´t let emotion cause trouble. Socialise and include your partner! Long term benefits will be reaped from business commenced with a friend. A parent´s health may cause concern LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Struggling against difficulty can bring success. Don’t jump to conclusions as your haste might give adversaries an opportunity to take advantage. Stay calm. Be aware of over-indulgence in food and drink that doesn´t suit you! Towards the end of December, things change and the year ends on a high and positive note SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Work, projects and plans are completed on time. Don´t start anything new until after the 15th December SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 Success is waiting at your doorstep, you just need an eye for the right opportunity. A relationship stabilises and any legal hassles are eased. Time to fulfill your promises! CAPRICORN: December 22- January 20 A favourable time for Capricorns. Use your time effectively and any problems can be sorted out. There may be wedding plans afoot within your household or family. Those preparing for entrance exams will be successful AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 Aside from smaller issues, this is a good month for Aquarians as respect in your social standing increases. After the 15th December, be careful of discord with close ones – try to listen to what they need to say before taking a stance PISCES: February 20 - March 20 A positive month for Pisceans. Sources of income may increase and any exams undertaken will be successful. If you´re ready to take on challenges, success will follow. It’s good to take time out to be with friends.
