Happy Birthday to us, Happy Birthday to us! Yes, it’s The Sentinella Axarquia’s 10th Birthday – a decade of delivering info-packed magazines to the English-speaking residents of the Axarquia region. It fills our hearts to receive ongoing positive feedback from you, the readers, as well as the amazing advertisers who help to make this magazine so successful. As a special 10th birthday treat we’re giving away 100€ to one lucky reader. All you need to do is send an email to saying what you like the most about The Sentinella magazine, together with your name, phone number, and email address – by midnight September 15th. Unfortunately not all emails will be answered, but the winner will be picked on September 18th, 2014, and announced in the October edition. Most of you probably already know the story of how I came to be the editor of ‘the little mag that fits in your bag’ but as it’s The Sentinella’s 10th Birthday, it’s certainly worth repeating. The founder of The Sentinel magazine was a man called Colin Checkley, who had a very unique and interesting sense of humour. However, in 2004 he passed away at the age of 44 within one week of discovering that he had leukemia. Colin’s father kindly allowed me to continue the work Colin had done in setting up The Sentinel, and with a slight change of name and format, I re-launched the magazine 4 months later, in September 2004, with a lot of help from my dad. It started out with only 40 pages, and my design skills were awful, however little by little I learned how to improve the look and feel of the magazine. Then when my sister, Kami, and brotherin-law, Tony, came over from the UK to take over the day to day running of the business, it evolved even further, to the magazine that you’re holding in your hands right now!

My journey as the owner and editor of The Sentinella has been incredible and I’m eternally grateful for the opportunity that came my way, albeit in unfortunate circumstances. Since that first edition, there have been several other editions of The Sentinella launching, and thousands more happy fans. We are currently looking for two new sales people to sell advertising space in the Axarquia edition (to cover the regions of Nerja, and also Torre del Mar / Velez Malaga) to be a part of The Sentinella family, and help to continue its evolution. If you are interested please email me (Keidi) at On behalf of everyone who works for The Sentinella, we are grateful for your support, and

hope that you continue to enjoy this magazine…

Strange News Pampered pooches An Australian mum has created a range of gourmet food for dogs after having to come up with ideas to feed her own fussy pet. Renee Kotis, of Darwin, was so tired of her cocker spaniel-poodle cross Max refusing to eat that she decided to take matters into her own hands. She started experimenting with making doggie treats in her kitchen and has now produced a whole host of tasty treats for canines. And the items - including domutts, woof burgers and can(ine)olli - have proved to be equally popular with dogs and owners alike. Ms Kotis said: "It's b e e n amazing how much pets have taken to t h e m . Dogs are very pampered in Darwin and owners want the very best for their pooches." She uses only dog-friendly ingredients such as carob, carrot, coconut, cream cheese and peanut butter. "They are yummy dog and human-friendly ingredients, with no meat, baked in the oven and iced with cream cheese or yoghurt," she said."I've experimented a bit in the kitchen and, yes, I have sampled some myself and they are quite yummy I must say. "The peanut butter is a particularly popular ingredient with dogs. BBQ Bliss Boffins have invented a robot that cleans your barbecue. The Grill Cleaning Robot, from quirky product firm HammacherSchlemmer, autonomously cleans grill grates. A built-in CPU and electric motors that rotate three cylindrical brushes propel the robot across the grill grates and remove burnt bits of food and grease in just a few passes. "The Grill Cleaning Robot uses cutting-edge technology to keep grill grates clean while requiring minimal effort from cooks who can instead focus on their food preparation," said HammacherSchlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns. The device can be set to clean for 10, 20 or 30 minutes and its rechargeable battery provides up to four hours of power. "Just like with typical grill brushes it's best to use The Grill Cleaning Robot while the grill is warm but not above 250°F," explains Mr. Berns." The robot actually monitors ambient temperature and sounds an alarm if the grill is too hot to clean." The Grill Cleaning Robot is priced at $119.95 (USD).

De Cotta Law Capital gains tax increase on sale of Spanish property from January 2015 During the property crisis in Spain not many sellers have made capital gains. However a very important change in the capital gains tax regulations is going to affect those non resident sellers who bought many years ago and do make a capital gain on sale. This is because a reduction of 11.1% for each year of ownership of the property before 1996 was allowed. This allowance will continue until December 31st 2014. From 1st January 2015 this reduction will be stopped. The effect of this for some non resident sellers will be to substantially increase their tax bill. For example if you purchased for 30,000€ in 1989 and sold for 200,000€ in 2014 your capital gains tax bill would be 19,575€ at 21% with the reductions applying now. However the same transaction after January 2015 would produce a tax bill of 35,700€. In addition to this the tax authorities will not be allowing for the inflationary increase in the

value of property. This means that a property purchased in 1999 for 56,000€ would have been valued at 71,719.20€ using a multiplier of 1,2807 when calculating the capital gain. However from January 2015 the capital gain will be calculated on the actual acquisition price of 56,000€. Before selling it is also advisable to obtain the calculation for the local improvement tax - plus valia – which is also particularly high in some coastal areas. The UK government has also announced changes in the capital gains tax rules for owners of foreign property from 2015 so it is wise to ask a UK accountant to advise. For more information please email or call 952 931 781 for a confidential consultation with our experienced tax partner Antonio Diaz.

Essential Oils They may be costlier than the cooking variety, but they are called Essential Oils for an obvious reason - everyone should give them a go With the natural ability to enhance our physical well-being, they are certainly ‘essential’ beauty aids in all sense of the word. From Egyptian Princesses in 3500BC, to British Black Death sufferers in the 17th century, oils have shared many a historical moment. Perhaps most intriguing though, is their outstanding ability to preserve youth. But as well saying good riddance wrinkles, you can also scream so long to celluite and bye bye to boils. In fact the list is endless. Most beauty blunders can be effectively combated with a dab of bottled nature. Essential oils are extracted from plant leaves, flowers and tree bark, many of which thrive in tropical climates. Bergamot and Benzoin blast away blisters, Rosemary and Cypress destroy dandruff and Lavender and Geranium execute Eczema. Even obesity can be controlled through the use

of these health and beauty necessities. Fennel, a pale yellow aniseed smelling oil, even fights fat when massaged into the appropriate area. On the other end of the scale, acne beating Tea Tree oil originating from Australia has a particulary strong medicinal smell. Its use blossomed during World War Two when soldiers carried it in their First Aid Kits to fight infection. One must-buy is Frankincense. The sweet a spicy smelling hero is extracted from the gum of a small North African tree and it helps halt the skin’s ageing process. But sliding in at number one has to be Lavender oil. This colourless liquid which derives from a shrub can help fight acne, bites baldness, bruises and chilblains. In fact, you name it, chances are Lavender can beat it. Nowadays millions of people globewide dab, rub and massage the bottled beauty into their bodies, in the quest to become more beautiful. So the message is, chuck out those chemical filled tubes of greasy gunk and invest in the natural alternative.

Ten Reasons Why We Love Spain If you are thinking of moving back to the UK, think again!!  1. The Weather - This is without a doubt the main reason why most of us love Spain so much. Sunshine makes us feel happier, more positive and a dam sight healthier. (I write with a cold!) 2. The People - Is it just me or do most Spanish people seem a lot friendlier then many other nationalities ? It is the done thing over here to say “hola” to people you don’t even know. If you said hello to someone in London who you didn’t know you’d probably be marched off by men in white coats to the nearest asylum. 3.Tapas - This is such a diverse and exciting thing to get stuck into. The mini dishes of all different kinds of food mean that you don’t become bored with ploughing through the same tedious dish. Popular tapas dishes include chorizo (spicy sausage), jamon (that chewy stuff), cheese and albondigas (meatballs). 4. The Beaches - There are some fascinating beaches along the Costa del Sol and all ac-

cross Spain actually. My favourite is in El Morche as it is proper sand and wide enough to have a game of volleyball without kicking dust into other people’s eyes. Plus the sea is shallow for a long way out and hence warmish. 5. The generosity of the barmen - Wow... It is very easy to get drunk very quickly in Spain as the measures are double and in some cases treble what we are used to receiving. Good huh?! 6. Paella - This is another great dish and the famous Spanish foodstuff. Rice cooked to perfection with various kinds of vegetables and sea creatures thrown in. 7. The Prices - Most things in Spain tend to be a great deal cheaper than what we are used to paying in the UK . A good three-course meal here for example, will only set you back as little as 8€ or 9€. Well, if you have a Menu del Dia anyway and there’s nought wrong with that! 8. Fiestas and Festivals - The Spanish sure know how to have a party! Their fiestas provide a vibrant atmosphere, with lots of food, lots of wine and not much sleep! 

Fresh Daily Fruit, Salad & Vegetables & so much more! FRESHNESS GUARANTEED! All the usual favourites  inc. Parsnips,  Swede, Sprouts, Fennel,  Fresh Herbs and  all seasonal Fruit & Veg  Great range of Homemade Pies, inc. Steak & Kidney, Steak & Guinness and Chicken & Mushroom. HOT HOT Sausage Rolls and Cornish style Pasties cooked on the premises NOW - Handmade Sausages from ‘Ye Olde Butcher’. Lots of varieties inc. Pork & Leek, Tomato & Oregano, Lincolnshire, Cumberland, Chilli & Garlic and more Come and try our renowned Honey Roast Ham and NOW Roast Beef - Delicious!! *Extra Mature Somerset Cheddar Cheese *Wide range of Homemade Pickles *Fresh Farm Eggs *Variety of Personalised Greeting Cards *Large Variety of Freshly Prepared Ready Meals Wholesale supply to bars & shops also available OPENING HOURS - Open Mon - Sat 10am - 2pm except Fridays 10am - 3.30pm

Denmark, it gained the status of an autonomous Danish dependent territory with limited self-government as well as its own parliament in 1979. Greenland isn't actually green. Over eighty percent of the island (1.8 million square kilometres or 1.1 square miles) is covered with ice. Only Antarctica has more ice. All of Greenland's cities are built along the coast because it is the only area in the country that is ice-free. Most of these cities are also along Greenland's west coast because the northeastern side is comprised of the Northeast Greenland National Park. Many of the Eskimo (Inuit) people survive by hunting and fishing and are struggling as fish stocks become depleted. The island's population is only 57,000. Inhabitants face severe social problems, notably unemployment, alcoholism and HIV/Aids. Greenland's capital, Nuuk, is one of the world's smallest capital cities with a population of only 15,200.

London I am sure that all off us would have been to London at some stage in our lives, here is a little piece on Trafalgar Square Trafalgar Square is indeed one of the most famous squares in the world - with Nelsons Column, the National Gallery and of course those dirty pigeons, which I like to think of as rats with wings. The Column itself is some 170ft high, with the statue of Nelson himself some 18ft high. Named after the Naval Battle of 1805, Trafalgar Square was completed by the mid-1840’s. It was John Nash, who designed the first layout of the square in the 1820’s. Although he didn’t live to see its completion, his Neo-classial design was addhered to, achieving the unified effect of the beautiful buildings we admire today. Building of the square began in 1829 and it was still being developed into the 1840’s. Nelson’s Column is surrounded by four brone lions on granite plinths, unveiled in 1868, sculpted by Sir Edwin Landseer, and cast by Marocchetti. At the time Landseer was better known for his

animal paintings, fountains and statues, including one of Charles I on horseback, dating from the 17th century, adorn the Square. Yet more sculptures in the form of bronze relief’s can be found at the base of the Column depicting scenes from four of Admiral Nelson’s Battles. On the North side of the Square stands the National Gallery, housing masterpieces by Leonard Da Vinci and Rebens. Next door is the National Portrait Gallery. On the West side is Canada House, while in the North East corner is the Church of St Martins in the Fields. At Christmas a Norway Spruce tree, the gift of the people of Norway, stands in The Square. The tree is given for one part in their liberation during the Second World War. At New Years Eve a huge crowd gathers to see in the New Year while dancing around the tree. Some years ago there were booths scattered around the Square selling corn with which to feed the pigeons. Nowadays they have stopped this due to too much pigeon poo! Those attempting to feed the rats with wings should be aware that they are likely to land on your head and if unlucky they may off-load that poo on your head while they are there!

Linea Directa What to do if you’ve been burgled Statistics in Spain Crime rates in Spain remain among the lowest in the EU according to the latest Interior Ministry crime report. However, since the economic crisis began in 2008, there has been a steep increase in domestic burglaries and theft as a result. In 2012 the number of burglaries in homes rose by 25.4%. The message to expat residents is not to panic. There are some simple precautions to take, as you would back in the UK, such as fitting security grills, installing exterior lights and alarms, being careful about what content is posted on social networks, especially anything to do with trips and holidays away from home. It also helps to take out a quality home insurance policy that will cover your home and its contents should any unfortunate incident occur. When you discover you’ve been burgled As soon as you discover you’ve been burgled, whether it’s a break-in or theft at your home, first call the police. Don’t touch anything until they arrive. A police report will be needed to process your claim. Then secure your home to avoid further damage, board up any broken windows, make a list of damaged or missing belongings, detail the damage to your home resulting from the burglary, taking photographs of damaged windows or door.

Roast In A Roll A really tasty snack where you’d least expect it I am very happy to share this post with you as I think this is a real “find”. In Spain sometimes you find deliciousness in the most unlikely places. So I’ve already told you what it is... but let me keep you guessing for a bit as to where. This is the deliciousness I speak of - a “roast in a roll".

I’ve been there 3 or 4 times now and they always have this roast in a roll, in fact they have a choice of two. The last time they had chicken and also a slow-roast pork. Unfortunately Ivan gobbled his pork roll down too fast for me to get a photo. I talked to the waitress, who is really nice and friendly, and she said they have them every day. They prepare them during the day, then cook them slowly overnight, so every morning there's a fresh batch. Oh and it's only €3.90! So there you have it. Pretty valuable information I think if you're living in Malaga because at some stage you are probably going to need something that will drag you down the motorway to one of these shops. And afterwards I bet you'll be hungry! This article was originally published as a post on Big Lovely Day, a new blog all about family life in Andalucia, specifically in the Axarquia. Visit

A fresh-out-of-the-oven french baguette filled with fallen-off-the-bone chicken that was slowcooked in some sort of Indian curry sauce (lots of cumin in there) and crunchy lettuce. A no frills, no messing about, finger-lickin good sanger. Sorry the photo isn’t great, it took all of the will power I possessed to actually take this as I was so eager to take a chomp. But where to find this gourmishiousness? OK a clue. The reason I say this is a real “find” is because I bet you’ve been in this area at least a few times before and would have loved to have known about this place. Maybe getting a new shower curtain, or looking for a new couch, or a missing piece for the air-conditioner – so we’re not talking “fun shopping” here but rather “needing something for the house” shopping. Or maybe you were picking up some family at... Ok I’ll tell you! It’s out near the airport where all those big shops are - Ikea, Decathlon etc but there’s very little else. It’s just an itty bitty cafe, next to Decathlon, in the Leroy Merlin building on the right hand side, near the entrance to the garden furniture bit.

Time Is Running Out.. ... to get a decent powerful vacuum cleaner From 1 September, companies will be banned from making/importing vacuum cleaners above 1600 watts. The new rules are part of the EU's energy efficiency directive, designed to help tackle climate change. This is being challenged by the Dyson group. All our Henry Hoovers are max 1200 watts - and already comply. Vacuum cleaners will be given seven different ratings, from A to G. Henry's micro filters and micro products should give it an 'A' Rating. Get your powerful Henry's now, while you can.

To Tree Or Not To Tree? Sometimes it is easy to guess which tree corresponds to a known fruit in Spanish. But it is also easy to mistake the fruit (which finishes in a and is female) for the tree (which ends in o and is male) 

El higo (Fig) - La Higuera Sometimes there is no rule: La pera (Pear) El Peral Other trees bear names that have nothing to do with the fruit La uva (Grape) - La Vid El datil (Date) - La Palmera

La naranja (the orange) - El Naranjo La manzana (the apple) - El Manzana La mandarina (Mandarine) - El Mandarino La ciruela (Plum) - El Ciruelo

And other trees have exactly the same name: Aguacate (Advocado) Guayaba (Guava)  Paw Paw (Papaya)  Albaricoque (Apricot)

In other cases the tree ends in ero/a El platano (Banana) - El Platanero El melecoton (Peach) - El Meloncotonero El limon (Lemon) - El Limonero La mora (Blackberry) - La Morera

Finally don’t forget that: El melon (Melon) La Sandia (Watermelon) La Pina (Pineapple) La Fresa (Strawberry) La Granada (Pomegranate) ....have no tree!

& t i u Fr Facts Veg ccoli Bro

We were probably all told in childhood to: eat our greens’ but this was sound advice indeed as green vegetables — and broccoli in particular — are rich in a number of important healthenhancing ingredients. Broccoli is one of the very low calorie vegetables, providing just 34 calories per 100g. It is rich in dietary fibre, minerals, vitamins and anti-oxidants that have proven health benefits. The total antioxidant strength measured in terms of oxygen radical absorbance capacity (ORAC) of broccoli is 1632 µmol TE/100g. Fresh broccoli is a storehouse of many phytonutrients such as thiocyanates, indoles, sulforaphane and isothiocyanates, and flavonoids including beta-carotene cryptoxanthin, lutein and zea-xanthin. Studies have shown that these compounds, by modifying positive signalling at molecular receptor levels, help protect from prostate, colon, urinary bladder, pancreatic and breast cancers. The fresh vegetable is an exceptionally rich source of vitamin C, providing 89.2mg or about 150 percent of of the recommended daily amount (RDA) per 100g. Vitamin C is a powerful natural anti-oxidant and immune modulator, which helps fight against flu-causing viruses. Broccoli also contains very good amounts of another anti-oxidant vitamin, vitamin A. 100g of fresh head broccoli provides 623 IU or 21 per cent of RDA. Together with other pro-vitamins such as beta-carotene, alpha-carotene and

zea-xanthin, vitamin A helps maintain integrity of skin and mucus membranes. Vitamin A is essential for healthy eyesight and helps prevent macular degeneration of the retina in the elderly population. Broccoli leaves (green tops) are an excellent source of carotenoids and vitamin A; they provide 16000 IU of vitamin A per 100g— several times more than that contained in the actual flower heads. Fresh heads are an excellent source of folates, containing about 63 µg/100g and providing 16 per cent of RDA. Studies have shown that consumption of fresh vegetables and fruits rich in folates during pre-conception and pregnancy helps prevent neural tube defects in the offspring. This flower vegetable is a rich source of vitamink and the B-complex group of vitamins such as niacin (vit B-3), pantothenic acid (vit.B5), pyridoxine (vit.B-6), and riboflavin. The flower heads also have some amount of omega-3 fatty acids. Furthermore, it is also a good source of minerals such as calcium, manganese, iron, magnesium, selenium, zinc and phosphorus. However like other members of the cruciferous family, broccoli contains "goitrogens" which may cause swelling of the thyroid gland. Therefore, it should be avoided by individuals with thyroid dysfunction. However, it may be used liberally in healthy persons. Extensive boiling and microwaving of broccoli has been found to destroy heat sensitive vitamins such as folate, anti-oxidants like vitaminC and some of its anti-cancer phyto-nutrients. However, other brief preparation methods such as mild-steaming and gentle braising have shown not to alter much of the composition of these compounds.

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts Benagalbón

Benagalbón is part of the municipality of and just along the coast from, Rincon de la Victoria. It is two kilometres inland on the road leading to Moclinejo and Almáchar. Only 12 kilometres from Málaga and very close to the 18 hole Añoreta golf course. Most people drive straight past the village, up and down on their way to somewhere else, without ever going into it, but once there, you discover it one of the prettiest villages, with pots of flowers everywhere, a beautiful church, La Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria, with Jesus Christ hanging over the congregation, a lovely square with a fountain and many bars and restaurants as well as the Museum of Popular Art (closed on Mondays) and a drinking fountain inside an olive pot! Rufo Festo Avieno, the 4th century geographer, described the area as the home of the temple to the goddess Noctiluca, or Moon Temple and further towards the coast,


from the same period, can be found remains of a Roman Villa in Torre de Benagalbón. The Romans also built a fortress on El Castillon hill in Rincon de la Victoria which was used by the Muslims until the Catholic Monarchs captured it. The final expulsion of the Muslims in 1570 and the frequent attacks from the sea by the Berber pirates left this area practically uninhabited in the 16th century and the few who decided to remain settled around the old Benagalbon Farm, thus founding the village who´s name derives from the Arabic Bena Galb-un which means The Tribe of Galb-un. From being almost uninhabited until the late 19th century this area became the most important population centre. The look out tower at Torre del Benagalbón is still in quite good condition and was part of the defensive system provided in the late middle and early modern ages to give warning of the numerous invasions from the sea. Modern day Benagalbón hosts its annual Feria de la Candelaria on 2nd February when the locals follow the Virgin of Candelaria through the streets throwing sweets and peanuts. Another day not to miss is in mid September when the contest of Pandas de Verdiales brings more than 12 groups or bands (called Pandas) playing different music and dancing, to the main square! Once the prize has been won the bands go off to different locations and continue playing, so you can follow your favourite and enjoy the music ´til the wee small hours!

If you are new to working with angels or if you feel skeptical, reading books on angels and archangels will help. You will align yourself with the subtle energies of these Divine beings and connect to the author, who has a more direct link to them. Angel rituals and invocations are very powerful and they will draw you closer to the angels, but they are not always necessary. Simpler forms of communication also work. You could talk or write to your angel. If speaking, use your own words either out loud or silently inside. For writing, you need to quietly think about the angel you are writing to. It is also possible to receive a reply from your angel. Just relax and let your hand move across the page or listen to your intuition as you await a reply. Only kindness will come back from your angel and it is a good idea to carefully lay out your question in writing so your angel can review it and bring you wise guidance. When writing or talking to your angel ask it to impress its name upon you then relax and wait for it to come through. Angels love soft music and flowers so light a candle and beautify your surroundings with flowers, crystals and pleasant fragrances. You can also ask your angel to float into your aura and lightly touch you. This will light up your energy and bring you joy. Blessing your home and your work environment also encourages angels to communicate with you. Light up your energy by walking in nature and eating healthy food to enhance the influence of the subtle energy of the angels. If you manage to see an angel, please treasure the experience as angels make you glow and feel happy. If you cannot see them, use your imagination to step into their golden light and sense that golden light all around you. To read the rest of Molly’s chapter, plus chapters by 21 other contributors, then purchase the book at Pasatiempo bookstore in Torre del Mar.

Cockney Rhyming Slang It is not known exactly who invented Cockney rhyming slang. Some say it originated in the marketplace so the vendors could communicate without customers knowing what was being said. Others think it originated in prisons so the inmates couldd talk without guards listening in Much of the rhyming slang is related to grub. Here is a selection of some of the best: Legs - Bacon andd eggs)... example, “Look at that pair of bacon and eggs” Balti (Basil Fawlty)... example, “That was a nice hot Basil” Bag of fruit - suit Chicken dippers - slippers Chocolate fudge - judge Crust of bread - head Currant bun - Sun newspaper Egg yolk - joke

Ginger beer - engineer Irish stew - true Jam Tart - heart Mars bar - scar... example: “He gave me a huge Mars Bar” Mince pies - eyes... example: “She has beautiful mince pies” Plates of meat - feet Rabbit and port - talk Rhubard and crumble - grumble Lemon curd - bird Sticky toffee - coffee Stewed prune - tune Strawberry split - twit Sunday roast - post

El Valle Drama Group The first production of 2014 by the El Valle Drama group was "Murder at Check Mate Manor" this was a Murder, Mystery, Comedy and played to packed houses on both nights On both nights a raffle was held, this was run by Jill Hayes the group´s secretary. As is the custom with the Drama Group, the money raised by the raffle is donated to a charity which is decided by the group members. This year the charity chosen was the Los Claveless which runs the radiotherapy unit in Marbella. The picture opposite is Jill handing over the donation of 207€ to Marion Winter, with Bernadette Lynch and John Bosworth (Drama Group Chairman) looking on. The group´s next production will be Aladdin on the 28th, 29th and 30th November.

Film iew e Rev Bell In the opening scene of Belle, set in 1769, a white man enters a drab room, sees a black woman and a young black girl, and does something shocking: He takes his hat off. Then, looking at the girl, he remarks, “How lovely she is. Similar to her mother.” This is, we sense, no ordinary movie about 18th century racism. To be fair, Dido Elizabeth Belle was no ordinary figure. Born to a British naval officer and a slave, she was brought up by her great uncle, the Earl of Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and the Lord Justice of England, alongside her white cousin, Elizabeth (Sarah Gadon). As

Amma Asante’s film presents it, Dido (played as an adult by Gugu Mbatha-Raw) and Elizabeth are the best of friends and consider each other sisters. Their great uncle and aunt (Emily Watson), initially skeptical about the correctness of raising their nephew’s mixed-race love child in their aristocratic world, grow to love her — even if, for the sake of what they deem propriety, they ask her not to dine with them when they have guests. This practice starts to seem even stranger after Dido inherits a considerable income from her father, making her a wealthy woman in her own right. This is a heavily circumscribed environment of status and propriety, and Belle is as much a film about being a woman as it is about being black. Dido and Elizabeth, both staggeringly beautiful, soon find themselves in somewhat opposing predicaments. Dido is a wealthy heiress, but has almost no social profile. Elizabeth, on the other hand, has status but not a penny to her name, and thus needs to find a man — someone not below her station — who can support her. Star Rating ****/*****

Recipe Of The Month

Here is Mr. Share with some more share advice!

Yummy spare ribs with spicy potato salad Ingredients

This months Mr. Share has bought 400 Zoopla Property Group @ 250p They are a digital media business that owns and operates some of the UK's leading online property brands including Zoopla, Primelocation, Smart New Homes and Homes Overseas. Last months share bought 262 BT Group at 381p now 377p :(

300ml/10½fl oz tomato ketchup 300ml/10½fl oz dark soy sauce 120g/4½oz clear honey 5cm/2in piece fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 5 tbsp amontillado sherry 1 tsp ground star anise 1 tbsp ketjapmanis (sweet soy sauce) 1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped 1.75-2.25kg/4-5lb pork spare ribs (still jointed and baby back if possible) 2 spring onions, finely chopped

$$$ PLEASE NOTE The investments we make are fictitious. Profits are not guaranteed, so please only invest what you can afford to lose!

Preparation method 1. Place the tomato ketchup in a large, shallow dish with the soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic, sherry, star anise, ketjapmanis and rosemary, then mix thoroughly to combine. Add the ribs, cover with cling film and chill for up to 24 hours if time allows. 2. Place the ribs in a large, deep pan (you may have to cut them in half to get them to fit). Pour over the tomato ketchup mixture and add enough water to cover the ribs completely. Bring to a simmer, then cook over a medium heat for 45 minutes to one hour, until completely tender.

3. Remove the ribs from the heat and transfer them to a large, shallow, non-metallic dish. Allow them to cool in the marinade, then cover with cling film and chill until ready to grill.

4. Preheat the grill. When you want to use the ribs, carefully scoop off the fat from the top of the mixture and discard, then allow the mixture to return to room temperature. Drain off all the marinade, place it in a pan and reduce it down to a sticky coating consistency.

5. Arrange the ribs on a grill rack and cook for about eight minutes on each side, basting them occasionally with the reduced marinade. 6. Cut the ribs into single sections and arrange on a large platter, then scatter over the remaining spring onions.

ARIES: March 21-April 20 A new cycle, and new direction, has begun for Aries - a time of transformation that, although causing anxiety, will bring numerous benefits. Try not to feel overwhelmed, set goals down on paper and come back to them after a spot of R&R

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 It's not what you say that is most important, it's how you say it, what tone you use, the inflections behind the words, the intentions. Speak as directly as possible. Tell the truth relentlessly. But do all of this wrapped in love and compassion. Travel may be difficult and communications will need extra clarity. Love will walk you through the maze.

TAURUS: April 21-May 21 As you search for a humanitarian path, you return to ways you previously trod with deeper feelings of security. Unexpected freedom results too from unloosening material objects and desires

SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Time to retreat a little, take a step back, giving you time to consider the constantly changing issues in your life and stabilise. A connection occurs during September’s new Moon which, if you risk opening yourself, will bring rewards

GEMINI: May 22-June 21 You seek a feeling of community and creativity which can be yours via a path of endeavor and service to others. As doors open, a useful and loving awareness of self, previously unencountered, is the outcome CANCER: June 22-July 22 Consider a change of career and allow new ideas through, as you ponder on just how to produce additional income. Give yourself time, meanwhile not overspending, and finances will fall into place LEO: July 23-August 23 Make the most of resources, yours and associates, whether intellectual, emotional, physical or financial. This will require discipline and control, respectfulness and restraint, in your personal, social and professional lives but will result in a great deal of satisfaction VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Everything you do this month should be with a sense of purpose and outcome. Working, painting, exercise, writing, gardening or walking should all affect your mind and awareness and help you give to those you have put aside. Enjoy some pomegranate

SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 This is a sensitive period for Sagittarians, a time that will prepare you for what’s to come in the next two years. Be careful with travel, and all new forms of communications, and try to slow down a tad. CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 You always try, or hope, to understand the inner structures and are therefore often the person behind the scenes who knows what’s occurring more than others. This involves a lot of work and good timing so take some much needed short respites and find new beauties AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 Should someone challenge you, tell the truth in neutral terms and step back. Loosen your sense of unease, cultivate some new friends, take some exercise and join some team activities PISCES: February 20 - March 20 You continue to work harder than usual, facing praise and challenges. Continuing at this pace will mean facing physical limitations so better to pace yourself and throw in some soothing warm water aerobics, homeopathics for inflammation, and acupuncture treatments. Then it's back to work again!

Biofeedback is a complementary and alternative medicine technique which measures and receives information (feedback) about your body (bio). The SCIO biofeedback system interfaces with the body at biological speeds providing results within minutes of a scan. The SCIO then detects changes in the physiological system of the body and is then able to amplify them as feedback to the client. The biofeedback sensors show how to make subtle changes in your body, such as relaxing muscles, which help to reduce pain and stress. Some of the symptoms of stress that can obstruct our health are Headaches, low back pain, High/low blood pressure, bloating and many more. It proves to be a very interesting talk,so I hope that you can all come along to support Julia. Please email me if you need anymore info, or email me if you can make it, it would be nice to have an idea of whose coming

) : a h a Jokes h A Mexican family crosses the border to the Land of Milk and Honey where the streets are supposed to be paved with gold. But the husband can find no work. His family are hungry, so he takes a walk to a quiet place at the foot of a big hill, kneels at the base of a tree, and begins to pray: Sweet Jesus, please show me a way to feed my family..." Eyes closed, the Mexican does not see the black man coming over the top of the hill, who is struggling with a broken grocery sack and loses a wheel of his cheese. When the Mexican man opens his eyes, the large wheel of cheddar cheese from the black man's grocery bag rolls down the hill and lands at the Mexican's feet! "Oh, thank you Jesus, thank you!" he cries, grabs the cheese, and runs straight home. Upon returning home, he gives the cheese to his wife and instructs her to make nachos. "But wouldn't you rather have cheese enchiladas and burritos and other things?" She inquires. "No," the husband says, "Jesus sent this to me with a message...As I ran home, I kept hearing a voice from Him yelling, 'THAT'S NACHO CHEESE! THAT'S NACHO CHEESE!� ------------------------------------------------------------Two tall trees, a birch and a beech, are growing in the woods. A small tree begins to grow between them, and the beech says to the birch, "Is that a son of a beech or a son of a birch?" The birch says he cannot tell. Just then a woodpecker lands on the sapling. The birch says, "Woodpecker, you are a tree expert. Can you tell if that is a son of a beech or a son of a birch?" The woodpecker takes a taste of the small tree. He replies, "It is neither a son of a beech nor a son of a birch. It is, however, the best piece of ash I have ever put my pecker in." ------------------------------------------------------------There once was a blind man who decided to visit Texas. When he arrived on the plane, he

felt the seats and said, "Wow, these seats are big!" The person next to him answered, "Everything is big in Texas." When he finally arrived in Texas, he decided to visit a bar. Upon arriving in the bar, he ordered a beer and got a mug placed between his hands. He exclaimed, "Wow these mugs are big!" The bartender replied, "Everything is big in Texas." After a couple of beers, the blind man asked the bartender where the bathroom was located. The bartender replied, "Second door to the right." The blind man headed for the bathroom, but accidentally tripped over a bucket and skipped the second door. Instead, he entered the third door, which lead to the swimming pool and fell into the pool by accident. Scared to death, the blind man started shouting... "Don't flush, don't flush!" ------------------------------------------------------------After having been served in a Las Vegas cocktail lounge, a real southern gentleman beckoned the waitress back and said quietly, "Miss, y'all sure are a luvly, luvly lady; can ah persuade y'all to give me a piece of ass?" "Lord, that's the most direct proposition I've ever had!" gasped the girl. Then she looked around the room, smiled and added, "Sure, why not? You're nice lookin' too and it's pretty slow here right now, so why don't we just slip away up to my room?" When the pair returned half an hour later, the man sat down at the same table and the waitress asked, "Will there be anything else, sir?" "Why yes," replied the southern gentleman. "Ah sure 'preciate what y'all just did for me; it was real sweet and right neighbourly, but where ah come from in Albama, we lack our bourbon real cold, so ah still need to trouble y'all for a piece uh ass for mah drink."

Jokes h a ha :) Two Englismen and an Irishman were on the way to prison. They were each allowed to take one item with them to help them occupy their time while incarcerated. On the bus, one Englishman turned to the other and said, "So, what did you bring?" The other Englishman pulled out a box of paints and stated that he intended to paint anything he could. Then he asked the first, "What did you bring?" The man pulled out a deck of cards and grinned and said, "I brought cards. I can play poker, solitaire, gin, and any number of games." The Irishman was sitting quietly aside, grinning to himself. The other two took notice and asked, "Why are you so smug? What did you bring?" The Irishman pulled out a box of tampons and smiled. He said, "I brought these." The other two were puzzled and asked, "What can you do with those?" He grinned and pointed to the box and said, "Well according to the box, I can go horseback riding, swimming, roller-skating...." ------------------------------------------------------------Geppetto runs into his beloved Pinocchio at the Shopping Centre one day. He asks how things are going. Pinocchio stammers "uh... well I have problems... with my girlfriend. You know? Splinters". Geppetto chuckles fatherly, winks and says "Sandpaper, my boy. sandpaper". A month later he runs into Pinocchio again and asks how's it going with his, er, problem. Pinocchio asks "What problem?" "You know, with the girlfriend (nudge nudge)" Geppetto says. "Girlfriend?" Pinocchio says. "Who needs girls?" ------------------------------------------------------------A very unattractive, profoundly obese, smelly, mean acting, nasty in EVERY sense of the word, woman, walks into Asda with her two kids in tow. As she is offered a basket, the Asda Greeter, asks, "Are they twins"?

The woman snarls, "No, the oldest one, he's nine, and, the younger one, she's seven. Why, do you think they really look alike?" "No", replies the greeter, "I just couldn't believe you got laid twice!!" ------------------------------------------------------------Three friends had a good friend named Joe and he was, naturally, an eternal optimist. At every bad situation he would always say ''It could have been worse.'' His friends hated that quality about him, so they came up with a story so horrible that not even Joe could come up with a bright side. So the next day, only two of his friends showed up for a golf date. Joe asked, ''Where's Gary?'' And one of his friends said, ''Didn't you hear? Yesterday, Gary found his wife in bed with another man, shot them both, and then turned the gun on himself.'' Joe says,''Well it could have been worse.'' Both his friends said, ''How in hell could it be worse? Your best friend just killed himself!'' Joe says, ''If it had happened two days ago, I'd be dead now!''

Saint Stevie the Scouse section Q: What do you get if you cross a Liverpool fan with a pig? A: Thick bacon... ------------------------------------------------------------Why is the Anfield grass so green? Because every week they put millions of pounds of s**t on it. ------------------------------------------------------------Man walks into a shop in Liverpool: Man: Can I have a pair of tights for my wife? Shop assistant: Certainly Sir, what size head are you? ------------------------------------------------------------Did you know that Liverpool won the Greenest City award this year. They recycle more car stereos than anyone else in the world and the churches all have lead free roofs!
