I class myself as a bit of a ‘Moving House Specialist’. After living in Spain for 11 years, I have moved house a joyous eight times and yes, I’m on the move again! As I am writing this I am packing boxes — which comes very naturally to me — and at the same time I’m reminiscing about each of the eight places I have stayed in. Some were good houses, some were bad and some just turned out to be downright ugly! Some had good landlords, some had OK landlords and one had a non-existent landlord — which turned out to be worst by far — so I’ve experienced them all! These are the joys of renting I suppose. But I love the whole moving process. I love the feeling of a new house, new neighbours, new area, new drive home from the everyday things like the school run which can all become a bit monotonous day in and day out. I find it to be a bit like Christmas too — finding things in the back of cupboards that you forgot you even had. I even found 35€ in the pocket of a jacket that I was about to throw out! And when you have a task of moving within two weeks, the excitement is even more magical. It’s time to leave the old memories behind and make some better ones. To be honest, this is probably the move I have been most excited about, as the house was like living in a solarium most of the year — too hot to work, too hot to eat, too hot to sleep and even too hot just to generally live! The other plus side I have noticed about moving is that you always seem to find something bigger and better; the kids will be happy too as they now get a bedroom each.

Strange News My thought of the month...

Enjoy the month of November!

Swimming free A goldfish that survived a house fire having been revived by a firefighter has died at the age of 18. Rusty’s 92-year-old owner Ena Woolford won him at the Ruthin Farmers Auction in Denbighshire, North Wales, in November 1999. In 2015, Ena’s microwave caught fire while she was in hospital, causing severe smoke damage to her home. Rusty was found floating on his side, but a firefighter brought him back to life, Ena said. ‘The other morning I got up and and he’d died. It’s very sad but he had a good life, and I felt a bit silly admitting to be missing a goldfish, but he’s left a big space in the tank!’ Ena is keeping Rusty in her freezer so that her great grandson can say a proper goodbye. I dough! A SWEET-TOOTHED bride has walked up the aisle in Sydney, Australia, holding a bouquet made out of doughnuts. Paige Kirk loves doughnuts so much she wanted them to be part of her wedding and she had the bouquet decorated with ivory icing to match her dress. Her bridesmaids also carried similarly unusual bouquets.

Children In Church Children, don’t you just love em!! 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.' A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first

pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. 'If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.’ Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, ' Ryan, you be Jesus !' A father was at the beach with his children when his four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand. 'Daddy, what happened to him?' the son asked. 'He died and went to Heaven,’ the Dad replied. The boy thought a moment and then said, 'Did God throw him back down?'

De Cotta Law Selling property Clients who own property in Spain are often concerned about both the taxes they will pay on sale and the transfer of their funds after sale. For British clients there can be the additional worry about converting the funds into Sterling from Euros. If you are considering selling it is a good idea to get legal advice early on so that you can make a decision about sale price, taxes and costs, and converting your currency. In a number of transactions between British people we have been able to undertake the transaction in sterling, provided the Notary is satisfied they have evidence of the payment for the sale. Generally the costs to the seller are the local improvement or plus valia tax, payable to the Town Hall, and any Capital Gains Tax (CGT) at 19%. If there is a mortgage on the property which will be paid off on sale, your lawyer will ensure that the bank is available on the day of signing the deed to cancel the mortgage. All other debts such as Community of Owners bills, utilities etc can be settled on the day or retentions made to cover these costs. For non-residents there is also a 3% retention on the sale price which is on account of CGT. The purchaser has a legal and fiscal obligation to lodge this money with the tax authority. If you have not made a capital gain and are up to date with your non-resident taxes you can apply for the return of this 3%. Your lawyer can arrange this but in some cases you may have to wait some months before the return of the funds.

If you are not able to be in Spain on the day of sale you can grant a Spanish form Power of attorney to lawyers to act for you and to sign the Notarial deed. There is still some uncertainty about the obligation to pay plus valia to the Town Hall when you make a loss on the sale. Each case has to be treated on its merits, as although some Town Halls are still requiring payment, some appear to accept that if the value of the land has not increased during your ownership and you have made a loss you do not have to pay. This is where a lawyer can assist in providing advice on your particular case. For more information contact us on 952 527 014 or email info@decottalaw.net

Women’s Revenge Observations of men and their uses (or not!)

9. Men are like Popcorn. They satisfy you, but only for a little while.

1. Men are like Bananas. The older they get, the less firm they are.

10. Men are like Snowstorms. You never know when they're coming, how many inches you'll get or how long it will last.

2. Men are like the weather. Nothing can be done to change them.

But us women love ‘em really!

3. Men are like Blenders. You need one, but you're not quite sure why. 4. Men are like Chocolate Bars. Sweet, smooth, & they usually head right for your hips. 5. Men are like Commercials. You can't believe a word they say. 6. Men are like Department Stores. Their clothes are always 1/2 off! 7. Men are like Government Bonds. They take soooooooo long to mature. 8. Men are like Mascara. They usually run at the first sign of emotion.

Interesting Facts... Macau became a Portuguese colony in 1557, before becoming a Portuguese overseas province until 1999 when it was transferred back to China. Unusually, this country is 100% urbanised as it consists solely of a single city. Macau is the most densely populated country in the world with an incredible 54,378 people per square mile! 50 percent of Macau's revenue comes from gambling and 20 percent of its population are employed by the casinos. The Venetian Macao, owned by the Las Vegas Sands, is the largest casino in the world, the largest single structure hotel building in Asia and the sixth-largest building in the world by floor area. People in Macau have the 2nd longest expected life span in the world at 84.43 years.

What To Do If A Death Happens In Spain By Grupo ASV Services Funerarios The death of a loved one is an emotionally charged event, hence it is a good idea to have the basic information in place to help you to make the right decisions — particularly if you are in a foreign country. This is what you have to do in Spain, and what you need to know about the funeral services in Spain. When you have to cope with this kind of situation, we recommend that you contact Grupo ASV Servicios Funerarios from the outset. We will provide you with assessment and assist you in taking all the right steps in a professional way. Call 9O2 408 100. 24-hour service, 365 days of the year Information on death by natural causes -A death by natural causes is considered to be one which occurs without violence and in which the medical examiner can accurately certify the causes of death without having to carry out an autopsy. Deaths which occur in hospitals, geriatric homes or at homes are often considered to be deaths by natural causes. -It is essential for a doctor to certify the death and for him to give the family a “medical death certificate” -Where is the deceased taken? Once the person has passed away and the death certificate has been signed, the deceased is removed to a funeral parlour. -Can we see the deceased? Relatives will be able to see the deceased person as many times as they wish while the deceased is in the facilities of Grupo ASV Servicios Funerarios. Funeral services for Expatriates -How long does the funeral service last? The duration of the funeral service in Spain can be adapted to the customs of the deceased person’s family. If the family needs time to regroup and prepare a meaningful funeral ceremony, Grupo ASV Servicios Funerarios will keep the deceased for as long as it might be necessary.

-What kind of ceremonies can be organised? Grupo ASV Servicios Funerarios can organise a personalised ceremony with a celebrant, who will reach an agreement with the family on how to carry out an emotional farewell ceremony suited to their requirements. Also, for religious ceremonies we maintain regular contact with the representatives of different religions who will carry out a funeral in accordance with each family’s religious beliefs. -Who Is obliged to pay for the service? If the deceased has a Funeral Plan or it is covered by an Insurance company, Grupo ASV Servicios Funerarios is responsible for contacting the corresponding company and resolving all matters referring to the cover for the service. If the deceased party has not subscribed to these services, then his or her family will take over responsibility for the service. -Can the deceased party be repatriated? Yes, once the family decides to carry out the funeral service in the country of origin, Grupo ASV Servicios Funerarios will be responsible for taking all the necessary steps to repatriate the deceased to the destination specified. Authorities in Spain and official authorities in the deceased person's country of origin have to be notified with information on the date and cause of death, and they must be informed when the process has ended. They will issue all the certificates and documents which have to be legally given to the family, including the international death certificate. With these documents, the family will then be able to begin the relevant inheritance and pensions processes. The time it takes to issue the death certificate varies depending on the area where the death has taken place. See main advert opposite

Linea Directa Spanish points-based licence system The Spanish points system gives 8 points to drivers who have held a licence for less than 3 years and 12 points for drivers who have held it for over 3 years. If no traffic offences are committed after 3 years drivers receive an additional 3 points. A point is awarded every subsequent 3-year period up to a maximum of 15 points. Drivers can recuperate points by completing a re-education course of 12 hours or a 24 hour course if drivers have lost all their points. Once the course is passed successfully drivers are awarded 8 points on their licence. What is covered? Under Línea Directa’s Traffic Fine Handling service, the policy holder or owner of the insured vehicle as well as any other drivers legally entitled to drive the vehicle can benefit up to a maximum of €500 of the cost of traffic re-education and awareness course, as well as the fees payable in connection with the driving licence recovery test. How are points deducted? Drivers will lose 6 points if under the influence of alcohol, drugs or other illegal substances. Reckless driving, refusing to take a breathalysing test or drugs test, driving over 50% of the speed limit. And drivers will lose 4 points for putting other drivers at risk, throwing objects on the road that could cause accidents or fire, exceeding limits by over 40kph, endangering cyclists, illegally parking, exceeding maximum passenger capacity by 50%. Driving without a seatbelt, using a mobile phone and not keeping a safe driving distance will result in a 3 point fine. How reimbursement works Línea Directa will decide whether payment shall be made to the beneficiary directly or by means of reimbursement upon delivery or the relevant proof of payment. Exclusions and limitations Cover shall be provided only once during each policy period. Only penalty points lost in connection with the insured vehicle and for a reason not excluded in the policy shall be taken into account. Claimants must notify Línea Directa within 3

months of the notification date of points loss or licence disqualification. Cover shall not be provided in the event of disqualification if the beneficiary is given a guilty verdict. Any loss of points arising from legal infringements or criminal acts are excluded. Drivers must pass the driving licence recovery course on first attempt to qualify for cover. We hope the information provided in this article is of interest.

Axarquia Solicitors Law Office HOW IS A FOREIGN PENSION TREATED FOR TAX PURPOSES IN SPAIN? All foreigners residing in Spain who are currently receiving a pension for services rendered, (whether a public or private pension), from their countries of origin, should declare this income in their tax declaration form in the monetary compensation section under income from work, only of course when they are obliged to file an income tax return form. It is important to note that all tax residents in Spain must declare their total personal global income for taxation, irrespective of the source of that income. Normally foreign pensions are not included in the drafts sent by the Treasury, but you must bear in mind that foreign pensions are taxed in the monetary compensation section, and are considered as income from work. Therefore, it is an obligation to include your pension/s in the annual declaration. However, it is necessary to take into account the corresponding Double Taxation Agreements, which prevail over Spanish Law. Most of the agreements to prevent Double Taxation which Spain signed with other countries establish the following rules with respect to pensions:- Generally, no tax is paid in Spain for PUBLIC PENSIONS received, for example, for having worked as an official abroad. These should be taxed in the country in which they are paid. They should be exempt from tax in Spain, however, there are exceptions. Agreements for example with Germany and the United Kingdom establish that these public pensions should be taken into account in the Spanish Income Tax Declaration which means that by this inclusion, the tax rate applied to the total income would be higher.

- ALL PRIVATE PENSIONS from private employment, even when paid by the social security department of another country, must be declared in Spain, Most of the Agreements signed stipulate that they should only be taxed in the country of residence. What is clear is that the Spanish Tax Office is receiving consistently more and more comprehensive information on pensions paid by other countries to residents in Spain, so it does not make sense to omit them in your income tax return, when officially they should be declared. This improvement in procedures for exchanging information with other countries and public administrations, especially with those in Europe, allows the Tax Office to acquire tax information that could not be accessed before, and for this reason, the tax office could claim outstanding debts due to non-taxation when foreign pensions have not been declared, and these debts could be backdated to 2012. In addition, it would be appropriate for all foreign pensioners who are tax residents in Spain to provide the Tax Authorities of their countries of origin with a Tax Residence Certificate from the Spanish Tax Offices thus avoiding the necessity of paying taxes in that country and only paying your taxes in one place, your country of residence, Spain.

Simple Home Remedies These are amazingly simple home remedies. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you'll be afraid to cough. You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Remember: Everyone seems normal until you get to know them. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem. Monthly thought Some people are like Slinkies, not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs.

This book presents a vision. A vision of a future that embraces a world where people exist in peace, harmony and unity and the quality and focus of each individual really matter. It is currently only a vision — but it has a convincing, irresistible logic. Unity in Diversity: The way forward for Humanity It's about the future of every man, woman and child. It's about the future of this earth. Creme indicates that humanity is at a crossroads and has to make a big decision — whether to go forward and create a new and brilliant civilisation, in which all are free and social justice reigns, or continue as we are, divided and competitive and witness the end of the life of our planet earth. Creme writes about the spiritual hierarchy of the earth, whose plan is for the betterment of all humanity. He shows that the way forward for all of us is to realise our essential unity without sacrificing our individual diversities. Creme writes that the challenge of our life — whether we have understood it or not — is the establishment and maintenance of unity, because every atom in the universe is inter-linked.

The Question: Local Static Office For The Few Or Worldwide Office For Everyone? Here is a question for all you people who want to sell a property. Do you think estate agents should spend lots of money on exhibitions and High Street offices or should it be spent on the Internet? You may say ‘Spend everywhere’. That would work, of course, but realistically, the money needs to be spent where it is most effective. In the past, local offices gave vendors confidence to list their properties for sale and, as with exhibitions, generated a certain amount of sales - but this gave very limited exposure, which was fine when there wasn’t a better alternative. However, nowadays all this parochial marketing activity is at the expense of spending more money where potential buyers are concentrating their efforts – on the Internet. If your property is exhibited at Europe’s largest overseas property exhibition, out of the say, 7,000 people who attend, how many want to buy in Europe, in Spain, in the south of Spain, east of Málaga, in your town? Not many! And only a very few will see your home. Lots of people see offices, but how many of those people go inside and how many want to buy your property? More house-hunters than ever are now starting their search for a new home by looking online. Recent research revealed that usage of property portals in, for example, the UK, is now at a record high with 47% of the population having used a property search

website in the last 12 months. Some 2.6m people in the U.K. browse property portals at least once a day. Other countries world-wide are similar. Buy A Home Spain over recent years has been moving towards global internet marketing whilst also increasing its local presence. The time has arrived for them to think even bigger and place more emphasis on activity that covers both the local and global markets – via the Internet. In addition to the increased Internet emphasis, and effective from 1st November 2017, Buy A Home Spain, rather than being just one member of Top House Spain, has now taken total control of the Group, and via a new website (still called buyahomespain.com), it will expose your property more effectively to buyers from over 1,000 estate agents. For the time being at least, they are keeping one office, their head office in Torre del Mar. But what do you think? Should they spend more money on such local offices, or should they spend it reaching to buyers from many countries throughout Europe and beyond? They value your views and would love to hear from you.

Ac Love A misunderstanding between two fools

Loner One who is probably super intelligent but doesn't want anyone to know that. Someone people call weird because they didn't give the loner a chance to get to know them. Someone who keeps to themselves, doesn't like conflict, but could kick ass if needed. Someone that no one really knows except a rare few. Someone who prefers being alone, or with few important people in their life, it's by choice. Less drama. Life A sexually-transmitted, terminal disease Lasterday The day before yesterday L Catching an L means catching a loss. In this sense, you catch an L if you say something stupid or, if you try to sound intelligent but are proved wrong Liberal People who hate conservatives Leoni As cool as biscuits Libtard An individual, whose thinking process has been rendered impaired by political correctness and the failure to understand that people are responsible for their actions and the world does not owe lazy or stupid people a living Lust Often confused with love, it is purely physical attraction and has no lasting effect LMFAO Laughing my f***ing arse off

Lucy A Lucy is the most prettiest, most talented person you will ever meet. She's subtle and can sing like angels. She may not always talk to you, but you can always count on her. A Lucy is caring and you might not know it, but cares for you. She is stylish and is great with make up. She's the kind of person who will look at the stars with you and text you all night long. She is a great artist and is pretty when she least expects it. She'll never cheat on you and you can tell right away if she thinks you're nice Lebron James To bail out on your team when times get tough Linda A beautiful, sweet, sexy girl. She’s more than meets the eye. She’s sweet but tough when she needs to be. Shes loyal, caring, and funny. She loves to help others, and has the kind of personality that people find so refreshing! She’s like a fresh breath of air. If you find a Linda consider yourself truly blessed and never let her get away Lame Just plain stupid, unoriginal, or lifeless. Barbed wire tattoos, butterflies and tribal tattoos are lame, they say a lot about the person who gets them Legs An attractive part of the female body if over exposed can cause a male to create a boner!

Release date: October 5th 2017 Director: Denis Villeneuve Starring: Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Ana de Armas, Mackenzie Davis, Sylvia Hoeks, Lennie James, Carla Juri, Robin Wright, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto Certificate: 15 'Blade Runner 2049' is a sequel to one of the most acclaimed science-fiction films of all time. Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K (Ryan

Gosling), unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years. Violence is frequent and strong, with brutal fighting, guns and shooting, stabbing, crashes and explosions, and bloody wounds/blood spurts. Women (some human, some holograms/sculptures) are shown naked -- mainly breasts and bottoms. The movie isn't without its flaws, and it certainly could have gone a bit deeper, but there's enough thoughtful, visually spellbinding stuff here to make it well worth seeing. Star rating ****/*****

American actor Tom Selleck, who was born on January 29, 1945, first appeared on TV in 1967 on The Dating Game when, incredibly, he lost. Later, he appeared in TV commercials for products which included Pepsi-Cola. He starred in six failed TV pilots before landing his breakthrough role in Magnum PI, which headed the ratings in the 1980s. He played the charming and quirky Hawaii-based private investigator Thomas Magnum, a role he also took into the series Simon and Simon in 1981 and Murder She Wrote in 1984. His most famous trademarks were his distinctive moustache, Hawaiian shirts and hairy chest. Selleck, who stands at over 6’3”, was originally cast as “Indiana Jones”, but was not able to take the role because he was committed to Magnum PI. However his own series did a parody episode — Magnum, PI: Legend of the Lost Art (1988) — complete with an “Indiana” hat, whip and booby traps. In addition to his series work, Selleck has appeared in more than 50 made-for-TV and general release movies, including Mr. Baseball (1992), Quigley Down Under (1990), Lassiter (1984) and, his most successful movie release, 3 Men and a Baby (1987), which was the highest grossing movie in 1987. When he "won" a Worst Supporting Actor Razzie® Award for his role in Christopher Columbus: The Discovery (1992), Selleck became one of the first stars ever to accept the $4.97 dis-honour. He is still acting and producing both in films and for TV, and is also active in politics where he professes to be “independent”. He shaved off his trademark moustache for the 1997 film In & Out (1997). Once rarely seen without it, he has since kept it off for most of his stage and screen work.

He and his family maintain their primary residence in Thousand Oaks, California, but also have secondary properties in Freedom, California; Jonesboro, Maine, and in the Shetland Isles. He has been married twice and has a daughter, Hannah — who is an international showjumper — from his second marriage, to Jillie Mack. Selleck received an honorary doctorate from Pepperdine University for his “outstanding character and ethic,” and is a board member of the non-profit Michael Josephson Institute of Ethics. He was also an active member of the California National Guard.

& t i u Fr Facts uats Veg Kumq Health benefits of kumquats These exotic-looking fruits from Asia, which are now widely available in Southern Spain, have a range of benefits for our health and well-being. One of the major functions of kumquats is their role in regulating the digestive health of those who eat some of these each week. 8 kumquats is equivalent to 10 grams of fibre, and eating a handful of kumquats isn’t very tough to do! That amount of fibre helps to keep your gastrointestinal tract moving and regulates your digestion to a healthy level. It can help to eliminate constipation, excess wind, bloating and cramping, while also increasing the efficiency of your nutrient uptake. Apart from their beneficial effect on digestion, kumquats can also thank their fibre content for their role in preventing diabetes. Dietary fibre can help to optimise the insulin and glucose balance in the body, thereby preventing people from developing this disease. Kumquats impact the immune system in a number of different ways, but if their appearance is any clue, they are rich in Vitamin C, just like their larger cousins, oranges! Vitamin C is a very important nutrient in our diet, primarily because it has an effect on everything in our body. It helps to stimulate the growth of new cells and increases the activity of the immune system to keep our body protected from foreign invaders, infections, bacteria, and fungi. Without vitamin C as our first line of defence, we would not only be unable to protect ourselves, but we also wouldn’t be able to heal. The combination of antioxidants and vitamins found in kumquats make them ideal to protect the skin — not only from cancerous effects of the sun, but also to heal the negative effects of free radicals which can cause wrinkles, age spots, and rough, unhealthy skin.

Kumquats are a rich source of Vitamin A and beta carotene, which are closely connected with eye health. Beta carotene works as an antioxidant to reduce oxidative stress in the macular cells, thereby limiting macular degeneration and reducing the development of cataracts. The significant calcium content in kumquats means that they help to protect the bones. High calcium deposits in your body also increase your rate of healing. For such a small, unassuming fruit, you wouldn’t expect there to be many carbohydrates in kumquats, but there are! Carbohydrates are essential for our bodies — particularly if we are highly active people and need to replenish our energy reserves in a simple way. Kumquats can provide that burst of energy in our diets, while also giving us all the other benefits too. The high level of riboflavin, a key vitamin involved in the production of energy, makes this process even easier. The high fibre and water content, low calories and significant carb content make kumquats ideal for people trying to lose weight. They will fill you up and keep you healthy, which will reduce your urge to over-eat. The kumquats’ high levels of vitamin C, natural organic compounds, antioxidants and minerals also have a major effect on the quality, texture, oiliness, and strength of your hair — and also your teeth.

Preventing Back Pain: Getting To The Core Developing strong abdominal muscles may actually help prevent back pain by making you less prone to back injuries and teaching you proper spinal alignment If you think about it, your core is in the centre of your body. It needs to be strong to support the weight of your entire body, including your back and neck. Adding core strengthening to your exercise routine can help protect your back and neck. By boosting your core strength, you'll also be less likely to rely on other back pain treatments, such as medications. These are an example of some of the exercises you can do: Plank, how to do it: 1. Begin on the floor on your hands and knees. 2. Now walk out your hands a few inches in front of you and lower onto your elbows. You should feel your core contract to help support you. Be sure to concentrate on drawing in your belly button toward your spine. 3. Hold for as long as you can, working up to 30 seconds to a minute.

Back arch, how to do it: 1. Begin lying face-down on the floor, using a mat or blanket for cushioning. 2. Stretch your arms out in front of you, then lift one arm, along with your head and opposite leg, about two inches off the floor. 3. Be sure to really squeeze your glutes, which can help remove some of the pressure from your low back. Also, pretend there is a marble in your belly button and squeeze that hard, too. 4. Lower and repeat on the opposite side for five reps on each side. Once you have mastered these exercises we can move onto the next level. See main advert below

Second Hand Homes Are Selling Again! How it affects you The local newspapers are brimming with articles about the recovery of the housing market and whilst the majority of these are Spanish owned flats and town houses, this has a direct knock-on effect on country and village houses in the whole area. According to the reports, property sales in general in Malaga province were up by 19% between January and June this year. This is very good news for the economy and for anyone thinking of selling. And according to the latest OMAU report (Observatorio de Medio Ambiente Urbano) the sale of second hand homes was highest on the Eastern side of Malaga, up by a massive 33%, compared with 13% in the capital and 10.5% on to the West of Malaga. New build is stronger on the Western side, than in Eastern Malaga, although there is plenty of evidence of new buildings appearing, and all those cranes that have been long abandoned and rusting on dusty, deserted building sites are now being

oiled and wheeled out onto new, active building sites in the towns and on urban plots along the coast. When the Spanish buy and sell their houses, they also trigger movement in the villages and countryside, helping many of the foreign residents to sell their properties. However, we must be cautious, buyers are internet-wise and better informed than the previous generation of buyers, and there is still plenty of ‘old stock’ to clear from the market, so prices of country houses and traditional village houses are not likely to gallop upwards in the foreseeable future. We still need to be offering our houses at a market-acceptable price. But things are definitely on the move and for many who have had their houses for sale for a while now, the possibility of selling is finally more realistic! For more information and advice about selling your house, email Toni at Unspoilt Andalusia (see advertisement below)

La Vaqueria Writers block...you hear a lot about it; authors who dash off a novel and then suddenly can't write the subsequent novels that they had planned. Poets who can no longer pen their lines and even the great bard himself got stuck without a muse... if the film is to be believed! what you do not hear so much about is artists block... is there even such a thing?

unique ideas for gifts this year!!

For over a year now I have not painted a single canvas, whereas once I saw a painting in almost everything I looked at, these days the colours and the brush strokes have gone and I see things around me the same as I presume most other people do! So no canvases, but stones on the other hand; can't get enough of them!! Frequent trips to the beach provide the raw material and blissful days in the studio are spent painting them. From penguins to funky beetles, herb and vegetable markers to affirmation pebbles plus everything in between! The Christmas collection is well underway and there is a growing collection of funny face rocks for the garden... all on display and on sale in the shop, some truly

So, aswell as all of these georgous gift ideas we also now have the monthly holistic fayre on the 3rd Saturday of each month with therapists and healers to help you with a large variety of health and well being issues aswell as artesan stalls with lots more gift ideas, and as Christmas approaches, there is no getting away from it, we are now taking reservations for our sumptuous Christmas meal, perfect for work colleagues or an evening with friends on the 22nd December before you get down to the nitty gritty family affair on the 25th.

A recent trip to Barcelona has re enthused my love of mosaics, funnily enough I find I have quite a lot in common with Gaudi... some of my earlier mosaics have a very similar style even though I had never seen any of his work until 3 weeks ago... great minds do think alike!!!

Absolutely something for everyone... see you soon! Main advert opposite for more details.

Monthly Baking Blog By Susan Jane Sticky Toffee Date Cake With the 5th November almost upon us what better bake for this time of year than this deliciously moist ‘Sticky toffee Date Cake’ - a great accompaniment at any bonfire night party. As with all my blog bakes the recipes are always tried and tested before being blogged;- on the day this cake had a trial run, a couple of my neighbours popped round for a quick coffee and ended up devouring the lot. So I guess I can take that as a ‘thumbs up’. What is even more difficult to believe about this recipe is that the little toffee tasting bites are actually the soaked and chopped dates, so quite a healthy cake really. This cake is great cold but can also be heated through and served with ice cream, custard or cream as a sticky toffee pudding. Ingredients: 200g of dried dates 275ml of boiling water 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda 175g soft light brown sugar 150g butter, room temperature 3 eggs, beaten 175g self raising flour

Method: 1. Pour the boiling water over three-quarters of the dates 2. Leave to soak for 30 minutes 3. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees C 4. Cream the butter, sugar and the soaked dates (including the ‘soaking’ water) 5. Add the eggs then stir in the self raising flour and bicarbonate of soda 6.Finally stir in the remaining un-soaked dates 7. Pour into a 20cm/8” square lined cake tin 8. Bake for 40 minutes until firm to the touch 9. Allow to cool, cut into squares and serve

Random Jokes A kilted Scotsman was walking down a country path after finishing off a large amount of whisky at a local pub. He felt quite sleepy and decided to nap against a tree. As he slept, two female tourists heard his loud snoring. When they found him, one said, "I've always wondered what a Scotsman wears under his kilt." She boldly walked over to the sleeper, raised his kilt, and saw that he wore nothing at all. Her friend said, "Well, the mystery is solved! Let's thank him for sharing!" She took off her pretty blue hair ribbon and gently tied it around the Scotsman's endowment. A while later, the Scotsman was awakened by the call of nature. He raised his kilt and was bewildered at the sight of the neatly tied blue ribbon. He stared for a minute, then said, "I don't know where y'been laddie... but it's nice ta see you won firrrst prrrize!"

Love A Child Foundation Love A Child Foundation would like to inform all its donors and supporters that John Margetson and Lynne Carr-Jones will be retiring from the foundation at the end of this year. The foundation has now completed all its overseas projects and will not be taking on any further projects or sponsors. We have a small number of children that are still sponsored and we will continue to support these children. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Nicole Brouwers and her wonderful shop ‘Pocapecunia’ for the tremendous support that she has given the foundation since its inception; without Nicole and Ted’s help many of our projects would not have come to fruition. Nicole of course will continue with the shop and will be supporting other national and international charities.

) : a h a Jokes h Thanks to AP & MP for the following jokes After arriving in a hotel in Manchester, CEO of Ryanair, Michael O’Leary, went to the bar and asked for a pint of Guinness. The barman nodded and said, "That will be £1 please, Mr. O’Leary." Somewhat taken aback, O'Leary replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over his money. "Well, we do try to stay ahead of the competition", said the barman. "And we are serving free pints every Wednesday from 6pm until 8pm. We have the cheapest beer in England". "That is remarkable value", Michael comments. "I see you don't seem to have a glass, so you'll probably need one of ours. That will be £3 please." O'Leary scowled, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat. "Ah, you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That'll be an extra £2. You could have pre-booked the seat, and it would have only cost you £1." "I think you may be too big for the seat sir, can I ask you to sit in this frame please". Michael attempts to sit down but the frame is too small and when he can't squeeze in, he complains "Nobody would fit in that little frame". "I'm afraid if you can't fit in the frame you'll have to pay an extra surcharge of £4 for your seat sir". O'Leary swore to himself, but paid up. "I see that you have brought your laptop with you" added the barman. "And since that wasn't pre-booked either, that will be another £3." O'Leary was so incensed that he walked back to the bar, slammed his drink on the counter, and yelled, "This is ridiculous, I want to speak to the manager". "I see you want to use the counter," says the barman, "That will be £2 please." O'Leary's face was red with rage. "Do you

know who I am?" "Of course I do Mr. O'Leary." "I've had enough! What sort of a Hotel is this? I come in for a quiet drink and you treat me like this. I insist on speaking to a manager!" "Here is his e-mail address, or if you wish, you can contact him between 9.00am and 9.01am every morning, Monday to Tuesday at this free phone number. Calls are free, until they are answered, then there is a talking charge of only £1 per second, or part thereof". "I will never use this bar again". "OK sir, but do remember, we are the only hotel in England selling pints for £1." ------------------------------------------------------------A family of beavers have just moved in next door.

Jokes h a ha :) A pensioner drove his brand new Mercedes to 100mph, looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a police car behind him. He floored it to 140, then 150, ... then 155, ... Suddenly he thought, "I'm too old for this nonsense!" So he pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the police car to catch up with him. The officer walked up to him, looked at his watch and said, "Sir, my shift ends in ten minutes. Today is Friday and I'm taking off for the weekend with my family. If you can give me a good reason that I've never heard before, why you were speeding... I'll let you go." The Man looked very seriously at the police man, and replied:- "Years ago, my wife ran off with a policeman, I thought you were bringing her back!!!” The Cop left saying, "Have a good day, Sir." ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy was doing a crossword, when he came across one he didnt know. 'Mick, im stuck on this crossword, its 4 letters and old Macdonald had one.' 'That’s easy paddy, it’s farm!' 'And how do you spell that Mick?' 'E-I-E-I-O' ------------------------------------------------------------"How was your steak, sir?" says the waiter. "First class!" says the guest. "And I'm telling you that as an expert." "Are you a butcher, sir?" "No, I'm a shoemaker” ------------------------------------------------------------I went to the garden centre today and asked the blonde assistant, "Do you have any rubber plants?" She replied, "I'm sorry, we only sell real plants." ------------------------------------------------------------I got my wife some Bodyshop vouchers for her birthday. They came in handy for repairing the huge scratch on the passenger door of her Corsa ------------------------------------------------------------A customer came up to me at the supermarket where I work and asked "Do you

have any OXO cubes?". "I'm afraid we are out of stock." I replied ------------------------------------------------------------A young lady walks into a supermarket and on her way round she sees the chap who'd had his wicked way with her the previous evening, after they had met in a club. He was stacking washing powder boxes on the shelves. "You lying bastard!" she shouts,"Last night you told me you were a stunt pilot!" "No," he says, "I told you I was a member of the Ariel display team." ------------------------------------------------------------I was on the train today when the inspector asked to see my ticket. He said, "This is yesterday's ticket." I replied, "Yes I know it's yesterday's ticket, that's when I got on this f***** train." ------------------------------------------------------------Just had two people on my doorstep for the last half an hour telling me the benifits of brown bread over white..... bloody HOVIS wittnesses ------------------------------------------------------------I've just heard one of the Teletubbies has started making porno films in France.

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 If you would like to be more productive Aries, be mindful of how well you manage your time. Focus on essentials and you’ll be surprised just how efficient you become. Slow down on the 29th and 30th TAURUS: April 21-May 21 You can accomplish a great deal this month with a little planning and a lot of follow-through. Maintain a healthy diet and regime to take full advantage of this high-productivity period! GEMINI: May 22-June 21 You are a friend to all and an enemy to no-one but if you feel your gifts and abilities are overlooked by others, focus on communicating precisely. Maybe you also need to value and appreciate yourself a bit more CANCER: June 22-July 22 If you find your moods affected by shorter days and cooler temperatures, you need to spend more time in the sun and keep up with your exercise, no matter where you live. Mid-November try something fun and different from your usual pastimes LEO: July 23-August 23 Invite friends or family over to cheer everyone up and to overcome your own feeling of being out of sorts or out of circulation. During the first week of November get focused on health, not forgetting to include your emotional and spiritual needs VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Winter may be coming on but keep on working out, remember to eat healthily and take your vitamins. Someone will need your assistance during November so put on your cape and be their hero

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Whatever the rest of the world is doing, a part of your heart and soul just can’t seem to rest. Find ways to nurture and calm your spirit when the world seems to be going crazy and put aside any guilt feelings about taking time for yourself SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 As you become a year older, make a life review and bring everything into perspective; you’ll be amazed by what you learn about yourself. Be prepared to take advantage of high energy days on the 23rd and 24th, then again the 29th and 30th SAGITTARIUS: November 22 December 21 You may need to dig deep in your soul for extra resources this month as life requires you to have more heart and more patience than anticipated. Romance and easy companionship will make everything a little smoother CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 Deal with stress and tension with regular physical exercise and notice how small things make a big difference in enjoying overall good health. Whether work or relationships, prioritise your projects AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 You should expect a fabulous month, full of great surprises and discoveries.

Smile and the world will smile back PISCES: February 20 - March 20 Pisceans will find themselves more empathetic and sensitive than ever as you deal with desires to help people in your vicinity.
