m Fro Ed... the Now that I’m a married woman, my husband and I have been looking at where to go for our honeymoon. We’re thinking that maybe Hawaii is a good option – hot and sunny at this time of the year, plus exotic, and a very spiritual place too, with the most incredible energy. Plus, it seems like one of the only typical honeymoon pieces of paradise that we can visit, as I’m not allowed outside of the USA for 90 days while my immigration papers are processed by the government. Having done a bit of research we’re looking at travelling to Kauhai, which is a quieter part of Hawaii and a pretty place to relax. So by the time this magazine has gone to print and you’re reading this editorial, I may well be honeymooning in the Hawaiian sunshine! I heard that the weather has been amazing in Spain considering the time of year – it’s probably a lot warmer there than it is here in Ketchum, Idaho. We’re expecting a heavy snowfall at the weekend and soon after that Baldy Mountain and the ski resort here will officially open, and then the tourists pour in. Perhaps it’s time to finally learn how to ski! I did attempt snowboarding a few years ago on the Sierra Nevada, but unfortunately I fell on a fast stretch and sprained my arm resulting in a sling for ten days or so. I’ll let you know how I get on…

Strange News Call Diverted A petrol station clerk in Florida has been saved from a robber's bullet by his mobile phone. The attempted robbery took place in Winter Garden, a suburb of Orlando. A man entered the Hess gas station and asked a clerk for help. He then showed the worker a revolver and demanded that he open the safe. When the clerk could not open the safe, the robber ordered a second clerk to try. He was also unsuccessful.The suspect fired a round at one of the clerks and fled. The man did not realise the bullet had been stopped by the phone until he pulled the device out of his shirt pocket. The clerk had just minor injuries. Banjo Style A banjo-playing police officer in Birmingham has written a crime prevention song entitled ‘When I'm Burgling Houses’. Sergeant Giles Dean hopes his George Formby-style song, performed to the tune of ‘When I’m Cleaning Windows’, will persuade people to keep their homes and cars secure. He wrote the song, which he performs on a banjo-ukulele hybrid called a banjolele, to encourage people to be more careful with their possessions. "It's incredible how many people still leave cars unlocked and with valuables on display, or leave windows open at night or when the house is empty," he says. Fan Mail A Harry Potter fan suffering from leukaemia had her sixth birthday wish of receiving a letter from abroad come true - when she received more than a million cards. Oliwia Gandecka, from Zielona Gora, Poland, was diagnosed with the disease last year and in a bid to keep her spirits up, her family asked her what she would want for her birthday. She said it would be magic if she could get a card from abroad, because Harry Potter's start to a better life had begun when he was sent hundreds of letters on his birthday inviting him to attend Hogwarts. So her parents turned to social media with pals to start the ‘Birthday Card for Oliwia’ campaign. Spokesman Marta Jagiello said: "We started a campaign on Facebook and on Harry Potter forums. "Just one card would have been enough to see her smile, but she was grinning from ear to ear when she saw all the well wishes she got from all over the world."

New Supermarket Scam Be careful when Christmas shopping and Please Please Please - make yourself aware of where this is happening AND tell your friends! Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply dropping into Supersol for a bit of shopping has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends. Here's how the scam works: Two seriously good-looking, young men with foreign accents come over to your car and help pack your shopping into the boot. They then both start cleaning your windscreen. Their firm young bodies bulging out of their skimpy vest tops. It's impossible not to look!

When you thank them and offer them a tip, they'll say 'No' and instead ask you for a lift to another store, in my case, Mercadona. You agree and they both get in the backseat. On the way, they start undressing, and both get completely naked. Then, when you pull over to remonstrate, one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts kissing you, touching you intimately, and thrusting himself against you, while the other one steals your purse! I had my purse stolen Oct 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th, 24th, and 29th. Also Nov 1st, 4th, twice on the 6th, three times last Saturday and very likely again this coming weekend. So Be Warned!!! P.S. Lidl have purses on sale for ÂŁ1.99 each, Aldi are ÂŁ1.75 and look nicer.

De Cotta Law Powers of attorney By De Cotta Law A large number of properties in Spain are jointly owned by spouses, partners or sometimes by brothers and sisters who have inherited property from their parents. It is not always possible for all the joint owners to travel when it is necessary to sign documents, attend banks and local authorities who may then require proof that one owner can sign on behalf of the other joint owners. As Spain has very formal requirements about signing any public document or entering into financial transactions such as mortgages a Spanish form power of attorney may be required. This can also be useful if one of the owners has health problems or has work commitments outside of Spain. For these co-owners it is possible to sign the power of attorney when they are here in Spain or it can be executed in their home country and then legalised with the apostille which allows it to be used here in Spain.

general and include powers of sale etc. or it can be a specific power if you only want to deal with one particular matter. It can also be an enduring power which can continue to be used if one of the parties loses their mental capacity to act or to instruct the person who has the power. This can happen as a result of illness. This can be particularly helpful for spouses who may not always be able to travel together to deal with property matters or indeed who wish to sell the property.

Darwin Awards 2013 They dwell among us!!! Eighth Place In Detroit, a 41-year-old man got stuck and drowned in two feet of water after squeezing head first through an 18-inch-wide sewer grate to retrieve his car keys. Seventh Place A 49-year-old San Francisco stockbroker, who "totally zoned when he ran", accidentally jogged off a 100-foot high cliff on his daily run. Sixth Place While at the beach, Daniel Jones, 21, dug an 8 foot hole for protection from the wind and had been sitting in a beach chair at the bottom, when it collapsed, burying him beneath 5 feet of sand. People on the beach used their hands and shovels trying to get him out but could not reach him. It took rescue workers using heavy equipment almost an hour to free him. Jones was pronounced dead at a hospital. Fifth Place Santiago Alvarado, 24, was killed as he fell through the ceiling of a bicycle shop he was burglarizing. Death was caused when the long flashlight he had placed in his mouth to keep his hands free rammed into the base of his skull as he hit the floor. Fourth Place Sylvester Briddell, Jr., 26, was killed as he won a bet with friends who said he would not put a revolver loaded with four bullets into his mouth and pull the trigger. Third Place After stepping around a marked police patrol car parked at the front door, a man walked into H&J Leather & Firearms intent on robbing the store. The shop was full of customers and a uniformed officer was standing at the counter. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a holdup and fired a few wild shots from a target pistol. The officer and a clerk promptly returned fire, and several customers also drew their guns and fired. The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. Crime scene investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop. The subsequent autopsy revealed

23 gunshot wounds. Ballistics identified rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was hurt. Honorable Mention Paul Stiller, 47, and his wife Bonnie were bored just driving around at 2am. so they lit a quarter stick of dynamite to toss out the window to see what would happen. Apparently they failed to notice that the window was closed. Runner up Kerry Bingham had been drinking with several friends when one of them said they knew a person who had bungee-jumped from a local bridge in the middle of traffic. The conversation grew more excited, and at least 10 men trooped along the walkway of the bridge at 4.30am. Upon arrival at the midpoint of the bridge, they discovered that no one had brought a bungee rope. Bingham, who had continued drinking, volunteered and pointed out that a coil of lineman's cable lay nearby. They secured one end around Bingham's leg and then tied the other to the bridge. His fall lasted 40 feet before the cable tightened and tore his foot off at the ankle. He miraculously survived his fall into the icy water and was rescued by two nearby fishermen. Bingham's foot was never located. And the winner is... Zookeeper Friedrich Riesfeldt (Paderborn, Germany) fed his constipated elephant 22 doses of animal laxative and more than a bushel of berries, figs and prunes before the plugged-up pachyderm finally got relief. Investigators say illfated Friedrich, 46, was attempting to give the ailing elephant an olive oil enema when the relieved beast unloaded. The sheer force of the elephant's unexpected defecation knocked Mr Riesfeldt to the ground where he struck his head on a rock as the elephant continued to evacuate 200 pounds of dung on top of him. It seems to be just one of those freak accidents that proves... 'S*** happens'

Film iew 3D n i v Re ravity G

Gravity, directed by Oscar nominee Alfonso Cuaron, stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney in a heart-pounding thriller that pulls you into the infinite and unforgiving realm of space. Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney). But on a routine spacewalk, they are caught offguard by debris from an exploding Russian satellite while installing an upgrade to the Hubble Satellite. The debris rips through their shuttle, leaving only Matt and Dr Stone alive. The two are left drifting in space, as Stone’s oxygen supply runs dangerously low. Their only hope is to use Kowalski’s jet pack to fly to a nearby Russian space station and, hopefully, find a

way back to Earth from there. The film leaps between claustrophobic, heavy breathing from inside astronauts’ helmets to intense silence as they drift through space. There is no solace in silence. In an eerie absence of sound, debris rips explosively through the space station and astronauts rebound off the surfaces they are struggling to grab ahold of. Ultimately, this is a movie about individuals' morals, emotions and wills to survive. Star Rating: *****/***** a must-see!

Interesting Things To Think About! Hmmmmm........ 1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me for the path is narrow. In fact, just p*** off and leave me alone.

8. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you. 9. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

2. Sex is like air. It's not that important unless you aren't getting any.

10. If you lend someone 20â‚Ź and never see that person again, it was probably well worth it.

3. No one is listening until you pass wind.

11. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

4. Always remember you're unique. Just like everyone else. 5. Never test the depth of the water with both feet. 6. If you think nobody cares whether you're alive or dead, try missing a couple of mortgage payments. 7. Before you criticise someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticise them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

12. Some days you are the dog, some days you are the tree. 13. There are two excellent theories for arguing with women. Neither one works. 14. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your lips are moving. 15. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Winter Fuel Allowance About this time of the year, older taxpayers will again be receiving another 'Winter Fuel’ payment.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.K. Economy by spending your 'Winter Fuel’ cheque wisely:

* If you spend it on petrol your money will go to the Arabs * If you purchase a computer it will go to India Taiwan or China * If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala * If you buy an efficient car it will go to Japan or Korea *If you purchase useless stuff it will go to Taiwan *If you pay off your credit cards or buy shares, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore. instead, keep the money in the Uk by: 1. Spending it at car boot sales 2. Going to night clubs 3. Spending it on prostitutes 4. Buying beer or whisky 5. Getting yourself a Tattoo 6. Visiting a bookie Conclusion: Be patriotic - go to a night club with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a car boot sale and drink beer day and night !

* If you spend the money at Asda or Tesco, the money will go to China, Taiwan or Sri Lanka

No need to thank me...just glad I could be of help.

This is indeed a very exciting programme and I'll explain it by using a Q & A format: Q. what is a 'winter Fuel’ payment? A. It is money the government will send to taxpayers. Q. where will the government get this money? A. From taxpayers. Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ? A. Only a smidgen of it. Q. what is the purpose of this payment ? A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase gas and electricity...or a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy. Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ? A. Shut up.

Sitter’s Digest Continuing with our section from an old book from Sitter’s Digest entitled ‘Laughs in the smallest room’. The book cost 5 old shillings. Just good clean, old fashioned titilating fun from the fifties Enjoy! The husband had arrived home unexpectedly and now he stared suspiciously at a cigar smouldering in an ash tray. “Where did that come from?” he thundered as his wife cowered in their bed. There was a pregnant pause, then from the closet came a shaky masculine voice. “Cuba” it said. ------------------------------------------------------------In Hollywood you can lie on the sand and look at the stars. Or vice versa.

Coral Bel Canto Choir Countdown To A Musical Christmas! The weeks leading up to Christmas are always busy, but for the members of Velez Malaga’s International choir, Coral Bel Canto, they couldn’t be busier. Since the choir started in September there has been one important question to be answered. “When are we going to hold our first concert?” The question was finally answered by the choir’s musical director Manuel Jesús Sanchidrián Torti: “You are ready. We will have a Christmas concert, and I will bring my orchestra and my children’s choir from Malaga to perform alongside you.” All that remained was to organise everything: select a date, book the venue, decide what to wear, make programmes, design and print posters, buy costume accessories, arrange a rehearsal with the orchestra in Malaga, organise a bus to bring the orchestra to Velez, order food for the performers on the day of the concert, schedule extra rehearsals... The list goes on. The result is that there will be a Christmas concert on 14th Dec at 8pm. It will be in the beautiful 16th Century church of the Convent of Las Claras in Calle Félix Lomas, Vélez-Málaga. Admission is FREE and all are welcome to come and celebrate a musical Christmas.

Whiplash is a term used to describe a neck injury caused by a sudden movement of the head forwards, backwards or sideways. It often occurs after a sudden impact such as a road traffic accident. The vigorous movement of the head damages the ligaments and tendons in the neck. Tendons are tough, fibrous bands that connect muscles to bone. Ligaments are the fibrous connective tissues that link two bones together at a joint. Common symptoms of whiplash include: • neck pain and stiffness • tenderness over the neck muscles • reduced and painful neck movements • headaches After an accident, the symptoms of whiplash often take a while (6-12 hours) to develop. The neck pain and stiffness is often worse on the day after the injury and may get worse for several days afterwards. Causes of whiplash Road accidents are the main cause of whiplash, but it can also occur following: • a sudden blow to the head – for example, during contact sports such as boxing or rugby • a slip or fall where the head is suddenly and violently jolted backwards

• being struck on the head by a heavy or solid object Diagnosing whiplash Whiplash can usually be diagnosed from a description of your symptoms. Tests and scans are not usually required. Visit your GP if you have recently had a road accident or a sudden impact to your head and are experiencing pain and stiffness in your neck. They may examine your neck for signs of muscle spasms, tenderness and to assess the range of movement in your neck. Treating whiplash Whiplash is often a self-limiting condition, meaning it eventually gets better on its own or after some basic treatment. If you have whiplash, it is better to move your neck rather than keep it still using a neck brace or collar. Your neck may be painful, but keeping it mobile from an early stage will improve its functionality and speed up your recovery. Painkillers, such as paracetamol and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as ibuprofen, can be used to help relieve the pain.

What is Leishmaniosis? Bought to us by Tina from Happy Hounds. what is leishmaniosis? Leishmaniosis is a severe, often fatal disease spread from dog to dog by sandfly bites. The disease is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean but it appears to be spreading further north in Europe. Dogs can be bitten up to 100 times an hour during the sandfly season, which runs from May to September, and bites are most likely to occur around dawn and dusk. There are 2.5 million dogs in Europe already affected with this parasite.

Treatment - Unfortunately, treatment is often costly and extensive and is not curative, so preventative measures are advisable. At the moment there is no cure for canine leishmaniasis as the parasite continues to live in the bone marrow, but there are drugs available to manage the disease. The main drugs used in Spain are Glucantime, Alopurinol, Levamisol and Milteforan.

Symptoms - Symptoms include fever, hair loss (particularly around the ears and muzzle), weight loss, skin sores and poor nails.

glucantime – An injection given into a muscle in the back leg – kills the active parasites alopurinol – tablet – given to protect the kidneys Levamisol – tablet – anti-parasite and increases the dog’s defences. For further information, contact your veterinary surgeon.

what causes leishmaniosis? Leishmaniosis is caused by a microscopic parasite called Leishmania infantum which is spread via sandfly bites. An infected sandfly bites a dog (usually on the muzzle or ears) and deposits the parasite under the skin, causing a lesion called a chancre. The parasite then attacks the dog’s cells, damaging the immune system and a variety of body systems leading to serious disorders including skin disease, anaemia, arthritis, eye problems and kidney diseases.

Prevention - Some products are licensed to kill sandflies and help prevent them from biting. There are ways to protect your dog although none are 100 per cent effective. A Scalibor collar seems to be the most effective; they are still active when wet and also control ticks and fleas, however there is now is a new vaccine course which involves three injections given at three-week intervals and will give your pet long term defence. Only one annual vaccination is then needed.

New Mum In Town Autumn has arrived and I am loving the fact that I can dress Jazmin in snug, warm and cosy winter 'woollies'. She looks gorgeous and warm as toast, but I cannot believe that people are already complaining about the 'cold'. Come on...we are never happy, are we? Baby girl (although not so much a baby anymore) is really blossoming and her development is amazing. We now have proper conversations (albeit the majority is a special baby talk, which only babies seem to understand and we Mummies just nod), and she is getting really REALLY good at stating... sorry... demanding what she wants and when, then throwing a HUGE tantrum when those needs (commands) are not met... does she really take after her Mummy?

paddy. Last year, she got away with it more (not that, however, well, let's just say that we received very different looks! I made a mental note to keep calm and breathe (and to think of the deserved glass of vino waiting for me at home). It was a disappointing first day back, but we will just move on and forget. Onwards and upwards. The next lesson will be much better... here's hoping! Although since the terrible twos are fast approaching, I believe there will be many more strops (Mummy too I'm sure) ─ and more wine in the evening to look forward to. Find out about the onset of the terrible twos next month...

Swimming is back! Hooray... routine and exercise, and this year Miss J's little bestie is joining us... So, here we are, day one of swimming. Now I am an experienced and expert Mama (ha ha), this is bound to be easy. The first challenge on the agenda... the changing room. Jazmin protested a little, but she soon got over it when she realised that she was wearing her brand new Peppa Pig swimming costume! Oh yes... bought from the one and only Peppa Pig World! Jazmin refused her swimming hat but that must have been due to the unbearable heat. She will lighten up once she sees the water. Anyhow, poolside and class is about to begin... yippee.... Oh, my days! What a first day back! Not only did Miss J flat out refuse her hat, but she also refused to go into the water... and once in, it was TEARS TEARS TEARS! I was shocked to have come away with my hearing intact! Her friend showed no fears or signs of tantrums, but Jazmin certainly made up for it with her

& t i u Fr Facts s Veg ueberrie

you can prevent infections.

Not only are blueberries yummy, but they also have some fantastic health benefits.

Blueberries may also help to reduce belly fat and risk factors for cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome. They can help promote urinary tract health too. Colonies of certain bacteria, such as B-coli,are responsible for urinaryinfections and blueberries contain a compound formed of big polymer-like heavy molecules which inhibits the growth of such bacteria. It also has some antibiotic properties which add to this effect.

According to a study presented at the 2009 Experimental Biology conference, a diet rich in blueberries lowers blood cholesterol levels while improving glucose control and insulin sensitivity, lowering the risk of subsequent heart disease and diabetes.

The fruit can prevent and heal neurotic disorders by preventing degeneration and death of brain-cells, and also by restoring the health of the central nervous system. Blueberries are believed to be extremely beneficial in conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.

Blueberries have the highest anti-oxidant capacity of all fresh fruit. They are very rich in anthocyanin, vitamin C, B complex, vitamin E, vitamin A, copper -- a very effective immune builder and anti-bacterial -- selenium, zinc and iron, which promotes immunity by raising haemoglobin and oxygen concentration in the blood. If you boost up your immune system,

Blueberries can prove helpful for some cancer patients, as they contain compounds such aspterostilbene (an excellent remedy for colon and liver cancer) and ellagic acid which, in harmony with anthocyanin and other anti-oxidants such as vitamin-C and copper, can work virtual miracles in the prevention and treatment of cancer.

Helping Axarquia

Random Joke :)

The Spanish tax authority is now taking unpaid taxes directly from bank accounts

4 Husbands The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband's occupation. "He's a funeral director," she answered. "Interesting," the newsman thought. He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her 20's, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's, and a preacher when in her 60's, and now - in her 80's - a funeral director. The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.She smiled and explained, "I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go."

In the tax year 2013, the Spanish tax authority is serving notifications to property owners in Spain warning them that there is no record of them having filed a tax return, whether they are considered to be resident or non-resident for tax purposes. Some owners of properties located in Spain have found money seized from their bank accounts because of unpaid taxes. We advise you to check with your tax advisor, even if you are paying your non-resident taxes. If you are a fiscal resident in Spain, you should declare taxes in Spain for your worldwide income.

Totalán

Between the Axarquía and the Montes of Málaga is the small village of Totalán, part of the scenic Route of the Raisin, 13 kilometres inland from the coast at Rincon de la Victoria and 22 kilometres from Málaga, it is approached from the autovia by coming off at the Centro Comercial Rincon de la Victoria and then turning right and driving inland, winding up along and above the dry river bed for about 300 metres until you approach the village where the first thing you notice is the new Paseo de Salud, built by the town in 2009 to encourage its residents to take a healthy stroll. There are strategically placed benches where walkers can sit and take a break whilst admiring the views, smooth mountains full of almond and olive trees. Mind you walking through the village itself might seem good enough exercise as it is very steep and there are lots of steps to get the thighs in shape! Totalán was apparently named for the Arab pastry Torta and its most famous festival, of Provincial Interest, held in November each year if the Chanfaina Fiesta which celebrates a popular and ancient dish named Chanfaina,

a kind of stew, made from potatoes, olive oil, offal, black pudding, sausages, breadcrumbs, garlic, cloves, vinegar, salt, pepper and cumin. So with food very much at the forefront perhaps the town hall knew what it was talking about when it wanted its inhabitants to go and exercise! One of the first squares you find in the village itself is the Plaza de la Constitucion where the 17th century church of Santa Ana, built in 1505 complete with an Arab Arch dominates the skyline. You can also find a baker´s, a chemist, a bank and one of the entrances to the town hall. Totalán may be small but it has its claim to fame! Paco and María, the parents of the singer and actor Antonio Molina, were both born in the village and the main square, where you can easily park your car, is named after their famous son, Plaza Antonio Molina. There is a plaque that says although he was born in Málaga he learned to sing in Totalán. As did the flamenco singer Enrique Castillo who was also born in the village. When you leave the village, instead of driving back the way you came from the Centro Comercial, why not carry on, drive over the bridge and make your way back via the village of Olías where you can stop for a drink before descending down the steep and windy road that leads you back to Málaga. The views are spectacular!

3. Put the ribs in a large, deep saucepan (you may have to split the sheet in half to fit). Pour over the tomato ketchup mixture and add just enough water to cover the ribs completely. 4. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook over a medium heat for about 1 hour, until completely tender. 5. Remove the ribs from the heat and transfer to a large shallow non-metallic dish. Allow the ribs to cool in the marinade, then chill until ready to put on the barbecue. They can be kept in the fridge for up to 24 hours. 6. When ready to use the ribs, carefully scoop off the fat from the top of the mixture and discard, then allow the mixture to come back to room temperature. 7. Drain off all the marinade and pour some into a large, wide saucepan. Cook it over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced to a sticky coating consistency. 8. Set the ribs on the barbecue grill over a medium-high heat and cook for 8–10 minutes each side, occasionally basting or painting the ribs with the reduced marinade until lightly charred. To serve, cut into single ribs and arrange on a large platter.

Profile Full Name: Robert Peter Williams Nickname: Daddy Windings Birthday: 13 February 1974 age: 39 Marital Status: Married to Turkish/American actress Ayda Field (8 August 2010) Children: Theodora Rose, born 12 September 2012 Birthplace: Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire

using the phone in the Queen Vic. His debut album, Life Thru a Lens, was released in September 1997 and eventually sold more than three million copies. "Angels," taken from the album, became Robbie’s' best-seller in the UK. The album eventually managed to sell over three million copies in Europe. In 2005 Robbie provided the voice of Dougal in the film adaption of The Magic Roundabout. The film featured an all-star cast, including Bill Nighy and Kylie Minogue who also worked with Robbie on his hit single 'Kids'. Robbie has won 17 Brit and seven Echo awards, and was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004 after being voted the Greatest Artiste of the 1990s. In 2006, Robbie entered the Guinness Book of World Records for selling 1.6 million tickets of his Close Encounters Tour in a single day. He has reportedly battled mental illness, obesity, self-esteem issues, alcoholism and substance abuse throughout his life. He used to smoke up to 60 cigarettes a day, and quit in 2009 for his girlfriend Ayda Field.

Sign: Aquarius

He met his wife Ayda on a blind date in 2007 after the pair were setup by mutual friends.

Robbie’s parents Janet (née Farrell) and Pete Williams – a comedian and singer -- ran a pub called the Red Lion in the town of Burslem, before his father became the licensee at the Port Vale F.C. Social Club – this led to Robbie’s lifelong affinity for the team.

Robbie proposed to Ayda live on Australian radio in November 2009. Although it was later revealed that it was "done as a joke”, they did marry at their Los Angeles home the following year.

Before he joined Take That, Robbie got a job as a double glazing salesman in Stoke on Trent. In 1990, his mother read an advertisement seeking members for a new boy band. 16-yearold Robbie auditioned and was successful. In July 1995, Robbie had a near drug overdose the night before the MTV Europe Music Awards and not long afterwards, he quit the band. They disbanded on 13 February 1996, Robbie’s 22nd birthday. Robbie is a big fan of Eastenders and famously made a cameo in 1995 when he appeared

In 2009, the Sunday Times Rich List claimed he was worth over £130 million. On 15 July 2010 it was announced he had rejoined Take That. Robbie has set up a charity in Stoke on Trent, entitled Give It Sum, its goal being to "improve local conditions and strengthen community life by giving money to those who are disadvantaged”

ct O ic m i M

The mimic octopus is the only known aquatic species to be able to impersonate an array of different sea animals via behaviour. Although many animals can imitate a different species to avoid or intimidate predators, the mimic octopus is the only one which can choose from many types of forms depending on what predator they are trying to elude. The mimic octopus reaches about 60cm in length and is typically brown and white striped. Some other octopi can blend into the sea floor to appear as rocks, but the mimic octopi can take on the form of up to 15 other creatures.

It was not discovered officially until 1998, when it was found off the coast of Sulawesi in Indonesia on the bottom of a muddy river mouth. For the next two years, scientists filmed nine different mimic octopi impersonating sea snakes, lionfish, and flatfish—a strategy used to avoid predators.

Mimic octopi have been observed shifting between impersonations as they cross the ocean floor to return to their burrow.

The mimic octopus uses a jet of water through its funnel to glide over the sand while searching for prey -- typically small fish, crabs and worms.

Octopiin general are highly intelligent -- possibly more so than any other order of invertebrates.

Like ‘normal’ octopi, the mimic octopus has three hearts.

Should You Really Have To Squint? Strange question? Well one of the reasons why we Northern Europeans live here in Andalucia is for the sunshine. I spent three weeks in the UK just recently and it was grey and overcast the whole time! But at this time of year we often find that looking out over our surroundings, we have to squint because of the low level sunshine. Now that's fine for the odd occasion but when you’re trying to go about your daily business in your home or just want to relax behind the glazed in terrace to enjoy the sun, who wants to be wearing sunglasses all the time -- especially if you’re trying to watch TV or use the laptop/tablet/smart phone etc.

will not make the rooms dark, but will filter the glare to allow you to use all your gadgets or simply to read the paper without straining your eyes. Plus, with the film applied, you don't have to pull down blinds to control the glare. Being solar control films, they help to even out the temperature in the rooms, preventing hot spots. At the onset of summer they work to provide a comfortable living environment. But if the idea of a permanent installation on the glass is not to your liking, what about solar blinds? With our solar blind system you can lower the glare-reducing material to the height you prefer, and where it’s specifically needed - and yet still have vision through the blind itself. The blinds can then be lowered fully in the evening, preventing the escape of daytime warmth which has been generated in the room by the winter sun -- so adding to the comfort of the room after sunset.

Well that's where Solar Shade can help. We've been established here five years now, supplying solar control window films and solar blinds up and down the coast and inland to help homeowners not only reduce heat build-up in their living space, but also to control glare

Go on -- improve your living environment and make living in the sun truly comfortable!

Solar control window films will reduce glare without reducing vast amounts of light. They

Buena Vista Petanca Club’s New Polos Buena Vista Petanca Club plays at Merendero Pepe Mesa on the Playazo beach, Nerja and is a thriving club with about 100 members. The club has eight pistes situated behind the merendero and plays throughout the year on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings (10.30am). Buena Vista was founded by Bob Miles (now its honorary Life Member) and originally played on a beachside location at Torrox-Costa. However it was required to relocate in 2011 and was offered a new home by local businessman Pepe Mesa who had taken over the merendero.

The club runs a series of competitions throughout the year with cups and prizes for the winners and runners-up and its social activities include monthly quiz nights. Guests are welcome, paying €1 a head per session. More information about the club can be found on its website: www.buenavistapetanca.com Just recently the club purchased some embroidered polo tops by The Sentinella Magazine and in the photo is Joan Hart, who was the first player to receive a shirt, having won the club's recent Ladies Day. Well done Joan!

Teachers & Cops These are actual comments made by 16 Police Officers. The comments were taken off actual police car videos around the country:

8. "Warning! You want a warning? O.K, I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket."

1. "You know, stop lights don't come any redder than the one you just went through."

9. "The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?"

2. "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a while."

10. "Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat candy floss and hot dogs�.

3. "If you take your hands off the car, I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document."

11. "Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."

4. "If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."

12. "In God we trust; all others we run through NCIC." (National Crime Information Centre)

5. "Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that's the speed of the bullet that'll be chasing you."

13. "Just how big were those 'two beers' you say you had?"

6. "You don't know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?"

14. "No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we can."

7. "Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I'm the shift supervisor?"

15. "I'm glad to hear that the Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours. So you know someone who can post your bail."

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 December is a time for Arians to use their adaptive capacity to recover balance and put aside small depressions. Let love take centre place to put a smile on your face and infect others around you. Beware of a jealous neighbour or colleague and don´t give away future plans TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Taureans love to stand up for what´s right but during December you should exercise caution and stay away from fights and arguments! Instead, with joy and solidarity, this is a good time to put energies into helping, or giving, to a charity. You could experience luck in gambling and in beginning a diet or fitness routine GEMINI: May 22-June 21 You will receive news of a distant relative that will help transform your life. Rather than envy, try to admire and emulate people who do well on their own merit. Mood swings need to be controlled in the home environment, taking care to put aside any resentments CANCER: June 22-July 22 Cancerians have the prospect of unexpected and joyful travel. December is a positive month for you, during which you can gauge, then take risks to achieve, what you wish for. To reap financial benefit, take a little time to reorganise work and incorporate new elements LEO: July 23-August 23 Although strangers may leave you perplexed, December is an excellent month to call and take part in meetings, sign contracts and put people in place. Pressure at home needs to be dealt with, rather than allowing your feelings to be drowned with work. You may find strength in romance VIRGO: August 24-September 22 During the first part of December, you will experience self doubt and profound inner thoughts making you quieter than normal. Friends will entrust you with information and opportunities to share events, both of which surprise you. Not a good time to mix work with emotion

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 December could be a difficult month for Librans helped if, rather than speaking or acting impulsively, you ensure you respond to emotional and other blows with maturity and wisdom before speaking or acting impulsively. Take care not to let health issues go untreated SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 A passionate month for Scorpio, bringing an eagerly awaited emotional reunion. The arrival of someone new, two or four legged, in your life is indicated. Some outstanding documentation or a contract can now be finalised SAGITTARIUS: November 22 December 21 Your perseverance and moderation are paying off as December brings Sagittarians job opportunities not to be missed. Go for it and don´t be afraid to leave the routine. If someone wishes to argue, you are best to just listen, think and keep silent. If you learn not to overinsist, people will do as you suggest CAPRICORN: December 22 January 20 Take preventive measures to prevent diminishing your vitality, with exercise, prayer, positive thinking and good nutrition. Don´t let pride allow you to ignore a lesson from someone whose experience and wisdom is valuable. If looking for a romantic relationship, keep in mind that, in order to produce fruit, love first needs to grow AQUARIUS: January 21-February 19 Aquarians should exercise caution with health during December, especially respiratory ailments including colds and flu. If something isn´t right, get to a doctor! Take care with expenses, particularly over the festive season and follow your intuition with a partner PISCES: February 20-March 20 To avoid discomfort and ailments, a healthy diet is important for Pisceans this month. You and a partner or close friend will need to respect each other´s space and be lenient this month. Outdoor activity would be of great and positive benefit

) : a h a h s e k o J An Irishmen wanting to become a Priest went to see the Bishop who said "You must answer 3 questions on the Bible". "1st - Who was born in a stable?" "Red Rum" he replied. "2nd - What do you think of Damascus?" "It kills 99% of all germs" he replied. "3rd - What happened when the disciples went to Mount Olive?" "That’s easy" he said "Popeye kicked the s*** out of them!!" ---------------------------------------------------------------Two Irishmen looking through a mail order catalogue. Paddy says "Look at these gorgeous women! The prices are reasonable too." Mick agrees "I'm ordering one right now" 3 weeks later Paddy says to Mick "Has your woman turned up yet?" "No" said Mick "but it shouldn't be long now though. Her clothes arrived yesterday!! ---------------------------------------------------------------The Blonde is showing off her new tattoo of a giant seashell on her inner thigh. Her friends ask her why she would get such a tattoo and in that location. She responds 'It's really cool. If you put your ear up against it, you can smell the ocean.' ---------------------------------------------------------------A guy out on the golf course takes a high speed ball right in the crotch. Writhing in agony, he falls to the ground. As soon as he could manage, he took himself to the doctor. He said 'How bad is it doc? I'm going on my honeymoon next week and my fiancée is still a virgin - in every way' The doctor told him, 'I'll have to put your willie in a splint to let it heal and keep it straight. It should be okay next week.' He took four tongue depressors and formed a neat little 4 sided splint, and taped it all together; an impressive work of art. The guy mentions none of this to his girl, marries her, and goes on their honeymoon. That night in the motel room, she rips open her

blouse to reveal her beautiful breasts. She said, 'You're the first; noone has EVER touched these.' He immediately drops his pants and replies, ...... 'Look at this, ..........still in the CRATE!’ ---------------------------------------------------------------Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really annoyed. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE!!" The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale. Bob has been missing since Friday. ---------------------------------------------------------------Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his cellphone and calls the emergency services. He gasps: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says: "Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"

By Beloved Northerner’s Section Why do Northerners prefer mushy peas? Because they can't keep the round ones on their knives. ---------------------------------------------------------------Alice dies, aged 78, having attended church in Bolton every Sunday of her life. Her husband, Joe, asks the stonemason for a headstone with the words: 'Lord, she was thine'. The stonemason writes: 'Lord she was thin'. Joe says: '"You've missed off the e, you'll have to do it again." Weeks later Joe goes to see the stone on the grave, and it now reads: 'Ee Lord she was thin'
