m Fro Ed... the Welcome to February … the months really do fly by, don’t they? At the time of writing this, I can happily say that I am still keeping to my New Year’s resolution. This is the first year ever that I have actually done more than a week and I am still going strong — so that’s a result already!

Editor: Kami Knight Sales: 664 210 468 / 664 689 138

So what was it? Well, I decided to make a saving plan. There are many out there to choose from but the one I opted for meant that on 1st January — which just so happened to be a Monday and the beginning of the week — I put 1 euro away. On day two it is 2 euros; day three, 3 euros etc.. up to day seven with 7 euros. Then you start all over again on the following Monday with 1 euro again, meaning that if — and ‘IF’ being the operative word of course — I manage to stick to this, I will save a WHOPPING 1,456.00 euros by 30th December 2018. Now wouldn’t that be fab if I could actually do that? I don’t hold much hope up though! As I mentioned, there are plenty of saving plans out there. Another is that you put away an amount once a week rather than daily, as sometimes daily it can become a little difficult to find the loose change. This means that in week one you save 1 euro, week two, 2 euros and so on, making a total saving of 1,378 euros. However, I think the most achievable is this one if you have access to lots of loose change. Day one, 1c; day two 2c, day fifty 0.50 cents and so on etc.. up until day 365 when you put away 3.65 euros. This saves 667.95 euros. It’s still early in the year to start one of these fab ways to save some money. Imagine this time next year — you could use the money to buy all your Christmas presents, or maybe have a lovely holiday. Well, the latter is my plan anyway!

Strange News February 14th, so don’t forget to tell your nearest and dearest how much you love them. I am dedicating all my love this month to my Uncle Tom who passed away on the morning that I wrote this editorial: at 6.30am on 21st January, aged 77. He was such a caring, laidback, loveable man who will always be in my heart. RIP UNCLE TOM X

Panda paddy ‘Panda diplomacy’ may have been a favourite ploy of Chinese leaders, but newly-released government files reveal that former prime minister Margaret Thatcher was no fan. Despite the creatures’ almost universal appeal, Mrs Thatcher believed they did not make ‘happy omens’ for travelling politicians. Her surprising aversion emerged when the Smithsonian Institution in Washington asked London Zoo for the loan of its male panda to be mated with a female panda which the Chinese had given to the United States. The request was seized upon by the president of the London Zoological Society, Lord Zuckerman, as an opportunity to generate some much-needed publicity for the cash-strapped zoo. He immediately contacted Downing Street suggesting the Prime Minister herself might like to take the panda in the back of her Concorde, but Mrs Thatcher was having none of it. Ahoy there!

Fare cop A drunken reveller racked up a £1,640 taxi fare after ordering the driver through three countries on New Year’s Eve. The man in his 40s, who has not been named, sent the driver 372 miles from Copenhagen in Denmark, through Sweden and finally to Norway’s capital, Oslo. The journey took more than six hours. But once he arrived at his home in Oslo, he refused to pay the driver and staggered into bed. The furious cabbie’s battery went flat outside the house after he called the police. Oslo Police said they found the man asleep in bed and, after officers woke him, he agreed to pay the fare – 18,000 Norwegian kroner. Police told the bizarre tale in a series of tweets, most of which were quickly liked by hundreds of people.

Children Explaining The Meaning Of Love Bless them, they have no idea! “I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.” Lauren aged 4 “When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.” Karen aged 7 "Love is when my mummy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.” Danny aged 7 “Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mummy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.” Emily aged 8 “If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate.” Nikka aged 6 “Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt,

De Cotta Law Inheritance tax reductions – Andalucía This year 2018 brings good news for family members who inherit property and assets in Andalucía. The regional tax has been reduced, with spouses, children, parents and those registered as partners - parejas de hecho - receiving an increased tax allowance of 1,000,000€ per beneficiary. Spanish inheritance tax is a donee tax falling on the person who receives. This means that if you and your spouse are joint owners of a property whose tax value is just under 2,000,000€ and you receive one half, you would not pay succession tax in Spain. Unlike previous deductions, this new allowance applies even if the beneficiary receives more than the amount of the allowance. It acts therefore in the same way as the nil rate band in the UK. So if you inherit 1,100,000€, you deduct 1,000,000€ and only pay tax on the 100,000€. At present this applies to all European Union residents which currently includes the UK. It is going to be important to know if these allowances will remain post Brexit. Many lawyers and accountants fear this will not be the case. This is because the way in which this tax was payable before 2015 was challenged in the European court and a decision was made that by charging higher rates to non-residents in Spain it discriminated against EU nationals. Once Britain is outside the European Union it is possible British residents will be treated as citizens of countries outside the EU, with a return to the high pre-2015 inheritance tax. There is a possibility that the principle of reciprocity might be applied to some taxes post Brexit. For example, the fact that spouses of Spanish residents would not be charged inheritance tax in the UK could allow for some negotiation on inheritance tax provisions post Brexit. The important thing is to obtain information now on what inheritance tax could become payable, and what measures might need to be taken post Brexit if you are a UK citizen.

Valentine Facts St. Valentine's Day falls on February 14th every year. Although the name is Saint Valentine's Day, most people refer to the day as Valentine's Day. It was originally a day to celebrate Saint Valentinus, who performed weddings for soldiers who were not allowed to marry. Valentine's Day is the second most popular day of the year for sending cards. Christmas is the first most popular.. Approximately 27 percent of those who buy flowers on Valentine's Day are women. Only 73% are men. Richard Cadbury invented the first Valentines Day box of chocolates in the late 1800s. On Valentine’s Day 2010, 39,897 people in Mexico City broke the record for the world’s largest group kiss. There are 34 single men (i.e., never married, widowed or divorced) age 65 or older for every 100 single women of the same ages.

More than 35 million heart-shaped boxes of chocolate will be sold. 15 percent of U.S. women send themselves flowers on Valentine's Day. Teachers will receive the most Valentine's Day cards, followed by children, mothers, wives, sweethearts and pets. Roughly 1 billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year.

Valentine Facts Continued... On Valentine's Day each year there are approximately 220,000 wedding proposals. The red rose was the favourite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love. Approximately 110 million roses, mostly red, will be sold and delivered within the three-day Valentine's Day time period. Spanish are convinced that Valentine’s Day is a holiday invented to boost consumerism, Spaniards often refer to Valentine’s Day as the Día de El Corte Inglés (Day of Corte Inglés), their main department store. In Victorian times it was considered bad luck to sign a Valentine’s Day card. If you’re single don’t despair. You can celebrate Singles Awareness Day (SAD) instead. In 1537, England's King Henry VII officially declared Feb. 14 the holiday of St. Valentine's Day.

Roughly 10 billion Love Heart sweets with the love messages written on them are made for every Valentine’s Day. (As printed on the front cover). Penicillin was introduced on February 14th in 1929. At least 9 million people buy their pets a gift on Valentine’s Day.

Interesting Facts... Malawi is one of the world's worst-hit by HIV-Aids and home to more than one million children orphaned by the disease. Before independence from Britain, Malawi was known as Nyasaland. In 2013, President Joyce Banda sold the presidential jet and a fleet of 60 luxury cars to feed the poor and fight malnutrition. Lake Malawi accounts for more than a fifth of Malawi’s total area and has been called the Calendar Lake as it is 365 miles long and 52 miles wide. In 1968, Malawi became the only country outside of Denmark to have a factory for brewing Carlsberg beer. Thirty per cent of Malawians have the surname Chirwa, Banda, Piri or Manda. The chambo fish is only found in Malawi. Unfortunately it is eaten as a delicacy there and is now an endangered species.

The Power Of Film What we learn from films

Medieval peasants had perfect teeth.

All hotel beds have special L-shaped cover sheets which reach up to the armpit level on a woman, but only to waist level on the man lying beside her.

Any person waking from a nightmare will sit bolt upright and pant.

All grocery shopping bags contain at least one loaf of French bread. It’s easy for someone to land a plane providing there is someone in the control tower to talk you down. The ventilation system of any building is the perfect hiding place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any part of the building you want without difficulty. The Eiffel Tower can be seen from any window in Paris.

Any lock can be picked by a credit card or a paper clip in seconds – unless it’s the door to a burning building with a child trapped inside. A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating, but will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds. All bombs are fitted with electronic timing devices with large red readouts so you know exactly when they are going to go off. A detective can only solve a case once he has been suspended from duty. If you need to reload your gun, you will always have more ammunition, even if you haven’t been carrying any before now.

The Best Sunday Carvery At The Plaza Lounge -Benamargosa If you were asked what would your favourite meal be, what would you reply… Chinese? Indian? Fish and chips? Well on a cold, wet Sunday afternoon I think there’s nothing better than a roast Sunday lunch! I had heard some favourable comments about the carvery at The Plaza Lounge in Benamargosa, run by Audrey and Richard, so booked up for the coming weekend. Plaza Lounge is situated in a quaint little square with a cute fountain in the centre of the village. The meal was booked for 2pm and as we entered, we realised that once we had taken our seats, the place was full, which is always a great sign. The restaurant itself had an oldie-worldie appeal with every space on the walls taken up by various quirky adornments — very pleasing to the eye. While we were waiting for our drinks, we perused the menu. This was just for starters as we all knew we were going for the carvery lunch. There was a choice of six starters — all homemade — from beer and cheese soup to grilled tiger prawns. Two of us had breaded mushrooms with a cheese sauce and I went for the avocado and prawn cocktail. Both were delicious.

After starters, Richard gave us the OK to go up for the carvery. Three meats were on offer: roast leg of pork with crackling, roast rump of beef with rosemary and garlic and whole roasted chickens. There was also a rich beef pie and for vegetarians, mixed nut roast or a cheese and onion quiche — quite a selection I’d think you would agree! I went first and plumped for the pork and a chicken leg. Richard carved off two generous slices of pork with a piece of crackling and cut off a chicken leg. We were told that we could have what we wanted and, unlike most carveries, you can eat as much as you like — even

including the meats! My friend had pork and beef, the wife had pork and chicken breast and the kids had chicken. There were homemade Yorkshire puddings, a vast selection of vegetables, light and crispy roast potatoes and all the relevant sauces and gravy. Well I’m a big eater so was expecting to go back for seconds, but even I couldn’t eat any more — well I could have, but I liked the look of the dessert menu, so I left a little room. For desserts, my daughter and I chose the deep vanilla cheesecake with fresh a strawberry topping and my friend had the rhubarb and apple crumble with hot custard. The alternatives for dessert were pancakes with maple syrup or ice cream, or spotted Dick with custard. The whole experience was absolutely fantastic — proper, home-cooked grub: very filling, satisfying and perfect for a cold, wet Sunday afternoon. I highly recommend The Plaza Lounge for a Sunday visit, so get yourself down there — but remember, booking in advance is essential. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed! See main advert opposite

Clinica Casa Blanca - Torrox Costa work better, help it to detoxify, purify and to drain, to regulate metabolism and hormone balance, to stimulate the nerve and lymphatic system and thus strengthen the immune system, so that disease cannot arise.

There is more to being well than taking vitamin C

How? There are very gentle treatment methods that are not only preventive. They can even relieve or heal longstanding and chronic diseases or discomforts. They are so gentle that even newborns, pregnant women, seriously ill persons or those who underwent surgery recently can be treated.

Vitamin C does help prevent colds among other things but is not sufficient for overall wellness. If you are well-balanced, you are less often sick. The body needs more than vitamin C! You can help/support your body, to stimulate and normalise the most important body functions and bloodstream so that organs can

VetiverSpain Now is the time to plant ! Vetiver is mainly used for controlling erosion as it traps sediment, slows down the flow of water, and allows you to channel the water to where you want it to go. When placed in an inlet where springs or runoff water feeds another body of water it slows down the runoff while filtering the incoming water. It also keeps the valuable topsoil that is lost during heavy rain / water movement and keeps fertilizers and other contaminants from entering our precious ground water. Since Vetiver roots are 3-4 metres deep they absorb and store water and increase and maintain soil moisture. In our experience along with others around the world we have discovered that we require less water than we used to prior to introducing Vetiver. This also includes the addition of 250 avocado trees, which consume a lot of water. We have had experience on our property as well as others that had steep inclines that have been cleared and terraced for additional crop production. The Vetiver stops erosion on the newly created terraces and also provides wind protection in the winter for the tender young avocado trees. Vetiver benefits all types of crops through conserving the ground moisture and keeping the valuable topsoil in place. It also provides more nutrients from its deep roots system for the various crops, which results in better crop growth and harvest yield. Vetiver forms a symbiotic relationship with almost any plant and does not crowd the other plants or trees while helping the symbiotic plant. Vetiver is sterile and can be trimmed and used as a very nutritious mulch with the added benefit of being an insect repellent or nutritious livestock feed. email: Contact David at 692 288 657 See main advert opposite

Love Facts Did you know... The term “love” is from the Sanskrit lubhyati, meaning “desire. On average, people fall in love seven times before getting married. Studies report that men are also more emotionally affected when relationships end. Men who kiss their wives in the morning are said to live five years longer than men who don't.

It’s scientifically proven that being in love makes you a less productive person. The fear of falling in love is called Philophobia. 23% of the couples who meet through online dating end up marrying. Swans have only one partner for their entire life. If their partner dies, they could in fact die of heartbreak :(

Some individuals who claim never to have felt romantic love suffer from hypopituitarism, a rare disease that doesn’t allow a person to feel the rapture of love. Most women are attracted to Men who possess a strong sense of humour as it indicates higher intelligence. If you look into a stranger’s eyes, you can actuall fall in love.

O.J.Simpson White People know hes guilty. Black people think hes innocent. Orgasm The meaning of life. One Direction A band that makes parents go the other direction. Otherkin Otherkin are a fringe group of human society who, for one reason or another, believe themselves to be the reincarnation of mythic creatures, typically elves, though others include dragons, demons, vampires, ogres, deities, and so on. Related groups include therianthropes, who believe they are reincarnations of animal souls, and otakin/otakukin, people who think they are reincarnations of fictitious characters from Japanese anime, manga, and video games. OMB Oh My Buddha eg, “I’m I say OMB instead of OMG” Oh noes Used when something that happens that is the worst thing that could ever happen, seemingly. Ohio Random weather patterns, making meteorology nearly imposible. Obnoxious The kind of people you want to shoot in the head. Orange The colour which vain idiots turn after a session in the tanning salon; Often confused with Hepatitis.

Overrated When something or someone becomes too popular than others and is given more credit than it deserves. Oxford A place infinitely more preferable than St. Johns College, Cambridge. Outcast 1.- Someone who doesn't belong in their main social area (work, school, the street). Has only a few friends, but usually doesn't really hang out with them. Someone who is told by their betters that they have wisdom beyond their years, but their peers make fun of them for it. They’re a little insane, after all, humans are social creatures. But their hearts are mature, calm and kind. They never really do anything big for themselves, and most of the things they do are for other people. They’re just misunderstood, and people hate them for no reason. They’re usually the victim of every negative stereotype and rumour. But hey, they don't have a social life, it doesn't matter to them, they hardly have anything to lose. 2.- Me LOL! Owns To be excellent or superior. Oompa Loompa 1. A native of Loompaland, usually tending towards attributes of small size, an orange complexion, and green hair; the first recorded information of them comes to us from Roald Dahl, the author of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. 2. Someone who has one, or all, of these attributes; used usually as an insult or in a derogatory manner. Oxymoron An Oxymoron is two words, or a compound word, with contradictory definitions. The most commonly used example of an oxymoron is 'Jumbo Shrimp,' as a shrimp is small by definition and therefore cannot be jumbo.

Random Joke An Alsatian walks into a vets and sits down next to a Bulldog who's head is almost touching the floor. “Alright” says the Alsatian. “No” says the bulldog, “I think I'm being put down” “Gee” says the Alsatian, “Why?” “I was fast asleep on the grass and their little boy came up to me with a stick and hit me over the head. I instinctively jumped up and bit him, so I think they’re having me put down.” “I'm sorry to hear that, really sorry.” A few seconds go by and the bulldog says, “And you, what you in for?” “Well, look at her, my owner, gorgeous eh.... I have the run of the house, I can go anywhere and there I was on the bed, just like you, fast asleep. She walks in from the shower and I lift one eye, she’s stark naked, dripping with water, wiping her soft warm skin and those round firm breasts and then she bent over and I thought, well, who resist. So I jumped off the bed and 'woof' straight up.” “Wow! You’re being put down too?” “Nah, she's making me have my nails cut!”

& t i Fru Factss Veg elon M

Melons are mostly eaten fresh as desserts due to their uniquely sweet flavour, but in addition to their cooling and soothing effects, they are a nutritious punch offering a variety of health benefits too. The high content of carotenoids in melon fruit can lower the risk of lung cancer. Regular consumption of this fruit is effective in preventing and killing the cancer seeds that invade your body. The excellent diuretic properties of melon are beneficial in curing kidney disease. The combination of melon and lemon is effective in curing gout. Thus, regular consumption of melons each morning helps in maintaining kidney health. If you have digestive problems, you can try eating melons to facilitate smooth and easy bowel movement. The high content of water in melons is great for digestion as it helps launch defecation while the mineral content eliminates acidity that often causes difficulty in digestion, particularly in the stomach. Like most other fruits, melons are ideal for weight loss. These fruits are low in sodium and calories as well as fat and cholesterol free. The high water content can keep you full for longer while the natural sweetness curbs your cravings for sugary foods and high calorie sweets. Watermelon, in particular, is great for weight loss with a whole cup providing just 48 calories. Melons are not only great for your health; their nutritional value makes them beneficial for the skin as well. One of their amazing benefits is their collagen content, which maintains the integrity of the cell structure in all connective tissues including skin. It also speeds up wound healing and maintains skin firmness. Regular consumption of melon is beneficial for those who have rough and dry skin. Melons like honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelon can tone your skin and provide

anti-ageing benefits due to the presence of vitamins A, B and C. You can prepare an anti-ageing facial mask by cutting thin slices of fresh melon. Place these slices on your face and neck. Lie down and relax for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water. This will refresh your skin and provide a youthful glow. Melons have good moisturising and energising properties. You can prepare a moisturising face mask by mixing cucumber with honeydew melon. Take half a small fresh cucumber along with its seeds and skin, a few slices of peeled honeydew melon and an egg white. Blend these ingredients in a blender or food processor to form a creamy paste. Apply this to your face, massaging with your fingertips in upward circular motions. Allow it to stay for 10 to 15 minutes and then rinse off with warm water. This mask will not only enrich your skin with a variety of nutrients but also soak up any oil or dirt that clogs your pores. It will also soften your skin, resulting in a smooth and radiant complexion. Melons — particularly cantaloupes — are a good source of beta carotene which is converted to vitamin A inside the body. This vitamin A is vital for healthy hair and normal hair growth. Deficiencies in B vitamins are also responsible for causing hair loss, and canteloupes can counteract this due to their high folic acid and inositol content.

After escaping a little girl who lives on a farm finds Ferdinand and adopts him until Ferdinand's peaceful existence comes crashing down when the authorities return him to his former captors. With help from a goat and three hedgehogs, the giant but gentle bull must find a way to break free. Will Ferdinand make it out alive or will the matador win. Star Rating ****/*****

s Now b e l Ce en & Alda Th Alan Alan Alda, who was born on January 28, 1936 in Manhattan, New York City, is best remembered for his iconic role as Hawkeye Pierce in the US Army medical sitcom M*A*S*H, which first aired in 1972. Ironically, he did not sign on to play the role until six hours before filming began on the pilot episode. He almost turned it down because he did not want war to be a "backdrop for lighthearted high jinks” and insisted on at least one scene depicting surgery in the operating room to be included in every episode. "I wanted to show that the war was a bad place to be," he said later. In 1975, Alan won the People's Choice Award for Favourite Male TV Performer and is the first person ever to win Emmys for acting, writing and directing — awards he gained while working on M*A*S*H. Alda has never had any formal acting training — in fact, he gained a university degree in science and served in the US Army. He has been married to Arlene Alda since 1957; they have three daughters. Although he has carried on acting — making a new name for himself as a portrayer of

Owen Brewster in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning film The Aviator, for which he received an Academy Award nomination as best supporting actor — Alda has retained his love of science. For 14 years he served as the host of Scientific American Frontiers, a television show that explored cutting-edge advances in science and technology. He is a visiting professor at Stony Brook University and a founder and member of the advisory board of the university's Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science and the Future of Life Institute. He serves on the board of the World Science Festival and is a judge for Math-O-Vision. Alda also has an avid interest in cosmology, and participated in BBC coverage of the opening of the Large Hadron Collider, at CERN, Geneva, in September 2008. He was awarded a doctorate of laws (LL.D) by Dundee University in June 2017.

To advertise call 664 210 468 or email High five for Hugh Hugh Grant – the star of Four Weddings and the man once thought to be an eternal bachelor – is to become a dad yet again at the age of 57. This will be Hugh's third child with TV producer Anna Eberstein, but his foray into fatherhood has not been the most conventional in the world. The Love Actually star was 51 when he had his first child – a daughter – in 2011. The girl's mother is Tinglan Hong, a restaurant receptionist with whom, according to his publicist, Grant had a "fleeting affair." Just a year later, he had a second child – a son – with Anna, but the following year, Grant became a daddy to another little boy, with Tinglan Hong being the mother again. And then, in December 2015, it was Anna who mothered the actor's fourth child. Hugh and Anna – who is 22 years the actor's junior – made a rare public appearance together at the recent Golden Globes awards ceremony in Beverly Hills. Stacey fury Stacey Solomon has shared her anger after being advised to start having Botox and fillers — at the tender age of just 28. The mum of two posted on Instagram after a weekend visit to a salon took an unwanted turn. Stacey's always been a vocal advocate when it comes to body positivity and self-love, so wasn't too happy when an employee offered her some anti-ageing advice. Ranting away, the Loose Women star said: "Okay, so my faith in humanity was dented today when I went to a salon to get a facial where I was told... 'you should start having Botox and fillers now before it’s too late'. "How on earth are young girls supposed to be confident and happy in their own skin when it’s being fed to them that they need to prevent ageing using Botox and fillers? "I felt 10 years older walking out than I did


C el e Newbrity s

walking in, just because of that comment." Stacey went on to say she's not against Botox or fillers, but alleged that the beauty industry views ageing as a "disease". "I believe that people should do whatever makes them happy. If you want fillers and Botox there’s nothing wrong with that," she said.

Hunter woos doctor Former Gladiators star Hunter — real name James Crossley — has revealed that he’s happily loved up with This Morning's resident Dr Zoe. James, who found fame as a Gladiator at the age of 19, was on the Loose Women show to chat about keeping fit at 44... but as James discussed exercise tips, Saira Khan rather smoothly moved him onto the subject of Zoe by saying: "I know what motivates you — you work out with your very famous girlfriend!" Laughing, James said: "Zoe, yes, she's the doctor on This Morning."

Arthritis: The Natural Approach As a massage therapist I see a lot of clients suffering from arthritis. Arthritis is characterised by stiff, aching and hard to move joints and bones. Literally defined; arthritis is inflamed joints and in one of my previous articles I explained that any ailment ending in “itis� means inflammation. For example: Tendonitis and Tonsilitis. This article will approach how to reduce inflammation naturally, therefore avoiding prescription medication. Staying active and mobile, receiving chiropractic adjustments or massage therapy and using healing essential oils help control pain. I have also been researching the amazing healing properties of turmeric and ginger. Turmeric is a bright yellow spice often used in Asian cooking. Turmeric contains the active ingredient curcumin, which is an antioxidant that demonstrates anti-inflammatory properties in conditions such as arthritis, muscle sprains and other injuries. In addition, turmeric may prevent and slow cancer growth, protect against liver disease and help reduce symptoms of digestive conditions

such as irritable bowel syndrome. While simply adding turmeric to your daily cooking will increase consumption and enhance flavour, there are other methods to boost intake and encourage possible inflammation reduction. Ginger is also used to decrease inflammation in traditional and herbal medicines. Health care professionals often use ginger to treat inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. A combination of turmeric and ginger supplements are proven beneficial but also it is just as easy to swap your morning cup of tea for some warm water with turmeric, ginger, lemon juice (add some vitamin c!) and honey (to sweeten). The list of health benefits for turmeric and ginger is endless and eastern medicine swears by it, why not try the alternative route? See main advert below

People Who Come And Go. A Bit Of Paperwork... With the New Year leaping forward at miraculous speed, we are now well into the ‘Spring’ property selling market and this is the very best time to put your property on the market if you are thinking of selling. But are you unsure about whether you will be able to sell because of the dreaded….”paperwork problems”? Many people are concerned about whether their country or village properties meet the regulations and whether any anomalies might mean they get into trouble or will be rejected by the agencies. Indeed, many agencies are not surprisingly cautious about taking on properties that could cause considerable extra work or could mean that a sale, once finally agreed, might fall through after the buyers’ lawyer looks through the property documentation. My thoughts are that MOST cases, however complicated, have a solution! And in the cases where problems cannot be solved due to natural protection areas which prohibit property owners from reflecting what is really on their land in the way of buildings, it is also possible that there might be clients out there

who are willing to take that on, and indeed, there are now insurance companies that can cover for any eventuality relating to urban law. The most pressing issue at the moment is that of whether or not to apply for the DAFO (the certificate that will ‘regulate’ your property if you do not have a Licence of First Occupation that covers all buildings on your land). Before applying, find out as much as you can about what the DAFO means and whether applying for it now is the right thing to do. Rushing out to request a DAFO without fully understanding what it implies for you is not a wise decision. Most of all, you need to know if the land your property is on is protected and if it is not, then check if all constructions, including outside terracing, walls, pool, etc, are older than six years. There is a lot to think about but almost everything has a solution, one way or another. For further advice for your specific property, Unspoilt Andalusia is happy to discuss your particular concerns with you. By Toni Waterman, Unspoilt Andalusia (see advertisement below)

Winemaking With Sumoll Sumoll is a very old red grape variety, suited to dry, hot climates and is recognised as being part of the history of Catalonia, where it is indigenous and the Penedès region of Spain. Sumoll grapes are utilised for producing exceptional wines, including still, sparkling and dessert wines. The multi award-winning Mont Rubí winery is located in L'Avellà, in the Penedès regions and was founded during 1984. This was the first winery to produce wines made from 100% Sumoll grapes. The region has centuries of viticultural knowledge

and experience. The excellent wine productions of Heretat Mont Rubí have become well-known and are appreciated, widely. Gaintus Radical has a bouquet of ripe, dark fruits. This superb red wine is a luscious production, with a splendid palate. Gaintus Vertical I found to have a most wonderful, very impressive aroma and powerful mouthfeel. For a rosé, the Gaintus One Night's Rosé has a beautiful pale rose colour, that entices to the bouquet and pleasures on the fresh mouth, with great inducement. The sparkling Gaintus Espumoso Tradicional has many followers and is often chosen for events and al fresco dining-adding that 'extra touch' to an occasion. The selected harvest of grapes leads to this eventual smooth

production, that pleases many. The perlage is perfect, as is the flavour, of this very popular rosé wine. The end of a meal or dining occasion calls for a dessert wine and Gaintus Sobremadurado 'ticks the boxes' for this slot, perfectly. The selected fruits are from 60 years' old vines. The grapes are transported to an ancient barn and then hung for 4 months, until the desired sugar level is reached. Absolutely, the complete finish to any dining occasion. I found these wines, which are just some of their range, to be wonderful when accompanying food, too. The reds pair

extremely well with red meats, plus lamb, cured meats and game, etc. Also meaty-type fish dishes are enhanced with these, along with other cuisine.

La Vaqueria’s New Look! It´s a new day, it´s a new year and it´s a new look Vaqueria Cafe de Arte, Benamargosa!!! Yes, another year when we have spent our annual January holiday working flat out but we think you´ll agree it was worth it when you see the results. The new Café, opening on Friday 2nd is colourful, original and packed full of wacky designs and ideas; "A little slice of paradise" where you can sit and enjoy a little slice of home made cake with a pot of tea or choose something more substantial from the menu. We are open all day every day apart from Monday. The idea for the Café was conceived some years ago but it has taken many years of hard work and sheer determination to reach this point. It is a fabulous place to take a drive to along the pretty tree filled valley to Benamargosa, a great place to eat and relax and a delight for all of your visitors... we can guarantee they haven´t been anywhere like this before!! As always, looking forward to seeing you soon. See main advert below.

Set your sights high as you begin to train in a new area and scale heights new GEMINI: May 22-June 21 You’re having a great time as the month gets started, and are looking good and thinking clearly. Beware of being too dogmatic in your approach to others and you could learn something of advantage

steps you need to take LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 You are off to one heck of a terrific start of February Libra. You may get a raise, offers to parties or dining out.
