m Fro Ed... e the th Happy New Year, 2013, to all our loyal readers and advertisers! The year new is a great opportunity to review the year gone by and see what we would like to do differently in the one to come. It’s a chance to start afresh, take on new challenges and set new goals and aspirations. Whatever your dream is for 2013, we at The Sentinella hope it comes true for you. I am writing this editorial from a wooden cottage in a hippy community in Topanaga, Los Angeles. It’s not quite the luxurious place I had in mind when I first decided to spend some time in LA, but I’ll only be here for a couple more nights and then I’m off to live somewhere else in the US for a while (thank goodness!) I landed here only a few days ago and the crippling jet lag is still in full swing. Last night I had a bad stomach too and found myself on the loo more often than not. But, despite the jetlag and the dodgy tummy, I’m happy to be here. My book, The Light, will be released soon (in the UK on December 21st and in the US a week or two later) and one of the reasons I’m in the US is to begin the marketing campaign here and do some radio interviews, etc… My dream for 2013 is that The Light is well on its way to achieving ‘bestseller’ status, and my ultimate dream – no matter how long it takes – is to sell at least one million copies. If you’ve been following the story of The Light in previous editions, you’ll already know that it’s a fundraising project, with 100% of the net profit going to seven charities which do outstanding work in the world.

Lion tamers Schoolchildren in a Russian village found a lion cub wandering free – and took it back to show their classmates and teachers. The animal was briefly kept in the school gym, until police collected it and took it to a nearby zoo - to the amazement of zoo staff. "To be honest, we didn't believe it when we heard it first, but police wouldn't be making a joke," said Rostov Zoo deputy director Irina Gribanova."Then we saw it with our own eyes and were really amazed.A lion cub has never been found in the wild here in our region.” Police are still searching for the owner of the animal, which they say may have escaped from a travelling zoo as it passed through the area.The cub, nicknamed Barsik, is described as being in a "rather good condition" and is believed to be around six months old.

Wishing each and every one of you a shining, glowing, illuminating New Year…

Fire cracker - A US magician was seriously injured after a TV host set his head on fire live on television. Wayne Houchin was appearing on a show in the Dominican Republic when, in an apparently unscripted prank, its host dropped flammable liquid on his head, setting him alight. Houchin's own crew, who were at the show, rushed to save him and put out the flames - but not before he had suffered burns to his head, face, neck and right hand. The illusionist, who hosts Breaking Magic on the Discovery Channel, was rushed to hospital but is recovering. He wrote on Facebook after the incident: "I was not aware he was going to do this. This was not a stunt or part of an act - this was a criminal attack. He has continued to report on his progress on Twitter and in one of his more recent posts wrote: "The doctors are cautiously optimistic that I will fully recover with no scars." The host used a liquid called Aqua De Florida to set Houchin alight.It is a flammable cologne popular in Latin countries, and is also used as a sacred cleaning spray by shamans and witch doctors in the Caribbean.

Wishing all our customers a very prosperous New Year!! From Rashid, his family and staff

Marriage (Part I ) Typical macho man married typical good-looking lady, and after the wedding, he laid down the following rules: 'I'll be home when I want, if I want and at what time I want -- and I don't expect any hassle from you. I expect a great dinner to be on the table unless I tell you that I won't be home for dinner. I'll go hunting, fishing, boozing, and card-playing when I want with my old buddies, and don't you give me a hard time about it. Those are my rules. Any comments?' His new bride said, 'No, that's fine with me. Just understand that there will be sex here at seven o'clock every night...whether you're here or not.' Darn she’s good! (Part II) Husband and wife had a bitter quarrel on the day of their 40th wedding anniversary! The husband yells, 'When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads, 'Here Lies My Wife -- Cold As Ever'!'

Yeah?' she replies. 'When you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads, 'Here Lies My Husband -- Stiff At Last'!' he asked for it! (Part III) Husband (a doctor) and his wife are having a fight at the breakfast table. Husband gets up in a rage and says, 'And you are no good in bed either,' and storms out of the house. After some time he realizes he was nasty and decides to make amends and rings her up. She comes to the phone after many rings, and the irritated husband says, 'What took you so long to answer to the phone?' She says, 'I was in bed.' 'In bed this early, doing what?' 'Getting a second opinion!' Yep, he had that coming too! God may have created man before woman, but there is always a rough draft before the masterpiece.

De Cotta Law Litigation in Spain and the UK By De Cotta Law

proceedings though for family proceedings these have not been very costly.

what are the major differences between the two jurisdictions in civil matters?

Can you act in person in spain or the Uk or do you have to be legally represented?

One of the main differences is that the pleadings or documents submitted to the court in the English system are shorter and indeed the system now requires a “skeleton argument” which is literally the bare bones of the case. In Spain the demanda or claim – made in court has to be argued in full in the first document submitted with all of the facts, the evidence and the case law relied on.

In the UK it is possible to represent yourself in family and civil proceedings. In English family proceedings and with the reduction in the number of firms who provide legal aid this has become more common. You can also commence civil action and defend a civil action. In criminal proceedings you are appointed a lawyer if you do not have one.

what are the major differences between the two jurisdictions in criminal matters? In the Spanish criminal law system the Judge is an investigating Judge with powers to call for evidence, to question witnesses and to decide what information can and cannot be released to the parties at the preliminary stage of the proceedings – ‘Diligencias Previas’. In the English system it is the role of the adversarial counsel to question witnesses and provide evidence with the Judge having a role in testing that evidence and asking additional questions but not investigating matters that are not brought before him or her by the prosecution and defence. are there court costs in both countries? The current government has brought in new court costs as part of the new financial measures. For a civil claim of 50.000€ for example the court fee would be 300€ + 0,5% of the total value of the claim (50,000€ in this case, so an additional 250€, making the total cost 550€. The cost of a subsequent Appeal would be 800€. For a divorce petition for example, the cost would be 150€ + 0,5% of the total value of the claim; with the cost of appeal also 800€. In England there have always been court fees payable on submitting claims in civil and family

In Spain not only can you not act in person but you also have to name a court procurator as well as an abogado or lawyer in all proceedings except for minor criminal allegations.. To meet the litigation experts at De Cotta Law, please contact Sandra Wrightson on: Tel: 952 527 014 / 952 523 428

The Day Penis Asked For A Raise I, the Penis, hereby request a raise in salary for the following reasons: I do physical labour I work at great depths I plunge head first into everything I do I do not get weekends or public holidays off I work in a damp environment I work in a dark workplace that has poor ventilation I work in high temperatures My work exposes me to contagious diseases Sincerely, P. Niss The Response Dear Penis After assessing your request and considering the arguments you have raised, the administration rejects your request for the following reasons:

You do not work 8 hours straight You fall asleep after brief work periods You do not always follow the orders of the management team. You do not stay in your designated area and are often seen visiting other locations You do not take initiative - you need to be pressured and stimulated in order to start working You leave the workplace rather messy at the end of your shift You don't always observe necessary safety regulations, such as wearing the correct protective clothing You will retire well before you are 65 You are unable to work double shifts You sometimes leave your designated work area before you have completed the assigned task. And if that were not all, you have been seen constantly entering and exiting the workplace carrying two suspicious-looking bags. Sincerely, V. Gina

The colour indigo, a mix of deep blue and violet, has long been associated with mystical matters. It is the colour of intuition and perception, and is helpful in opening the third eye. It promotes deep concentration during times of introspection and meditation, helping you achieve deeper levels of consciousness. It is a colour which relates to the "New Age" - the ability to use the Higher Mind to see beyond the normal senses with great powers of perception. It relies on intuition rather than gut feeling. Service to humanity is one of the strengths of the colour indigo. Powerful and dignified, in-

digo conveys integrity and deep sincerity. The colour meaning of indigo reflects great devotion, wisdom and justice along with fairness and impartiality. It is a defender of people's rights to the end. Indigo loves rituals and traditions, religion and the institutional system, conforming to things that have worked in the past while planning for the future. It is believed to stimulate the right side of the brain or creative activity, and helps with spatial skills. It is a dramatic colour relating to the world of the theatre, so during times of stress, an ‘indigo person’ becomes the drama queen, making a mountain out of a molehill! The negative colour meaning of indigo relates to fanaticism and addiction, encompassing everything from a need for recognised qualifications to a need for illegal drugs; from the workaholic to the religious fanatic. The source of the colour was indigo plants (Indigoferatinctoria) found in India, and the dye had to be imported at great expense.

interesting Facts - Located in the heart of the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the north and to the south by the Caribbean Sea. The Dominican Republic was explored by Columbus on his first voyage in 1492. He named it La Espa単ola, and his son, Diego, was its first viceroy. The capital, Santo Domingo, founded in 1496, is the oldest European settlement in the Western Hemisphere. The Caribbean nation is a major tourist destination. This, coupled with free-trade zones, has become the country's major employer and key sources of revenue, replacing dependence on sugar, coffee and other exports. Hurricanes which have caused great destruction in the Dominican Republic include Hurricane David (1979) and Hurricane George (1998). A number of people also died in flooding caused by Tropical Storm Noel at the end of October 2007. Several bridges collapsed and many homes were destroyed.

Worry As we progress into 2013, I want to thank you all for your educational e-mails over the past year. I am totally screwed up now and have little chance of recovery. I can no longer open a bathroom door without using a paper towel, nor let the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying about the bacteria on the lemon peel. I can't sit down on a hotel bedspread because I can only imagine what has happened on it since it was last washed. I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking one's nose. I can't touch any woman's handbag for fear she has placed it on the floor of a public toilet. I must send my special thanks for the email about rat poo in the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with every envelope that needs sealing. ALSO, now

I have to scrub the top of every can I open for the same reason. I can't eat at KFC because their chickens are actually horrible mutant freaks with no eyes, feet or feathers. I can't use cancer-causing deodorants even though I smell like a water buffalo on a hot day. Because of your concern, I no longer drink Coca Cola because it can remove toilet stains. I no longer buy fuel without taking someone along to watch the car, so a serial killer doesn't crawl in my back seat when I'm filling up. I no longer use Cling Wrap in the microwave because it causes seven different types of cancer. PS: I now keep my toothbrush in the living room, because I was told by e-mail that water splashes over 6 ft. out of the toilet. Enjoy your day!

The flying fish lives in warm waters far from land. It can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of water into the air, where its long, wing-like fins enable gliding flight for considerable distances above the water's surface. This uncommon ability is a natural defence mechanism to evade predators. There are about 64 species of flying fish. The oldest known fossil of a flying or gliding

fish, Potanichthysxingyiensis, dates back to the Middle Triassic, 235-242 million years ago. However, this fossil in not related to modern flying fish, which evolved independently about 65 million years ago. Flying fish have given their name to: the Exocet guided missile, three ships of the United States Navy named USS Flying Fish and the constellation Volans ("flying", originally "PiscisVolans" = "flying fish"). From 1900 to the 1930s, flying fish were studied as possible models used to develop aircraft.

Amazing Marine Life (Continued) Flying fish can use updrafts at the leading edge of waves to cover distances of at least

and their maximum altitude is 6m (20 ft) above the surface of the sea. They have been known to land on ships' decks. In Japanese cuisine, the fish is often preserved by drying. The roe of Cheilopogonagoo, or Japanese flying fish, is used to make some types of sushi, and is known as tobiko. It is also a staple in the diet of the Tao people of Orchid Island, Taiwan.

400m (1,300 ft).They can travel at speeds of more than 70 kilometres per hour (43 mph),

Their flights are typically around 50 metres (160ft). To glide upwards out of the water, a flying fish moves its tail up to 70 times per second; the curved profile of its "wing" is comparable to the aerodynamic shape of a bird wing.

Twenty-two shining contributors have unconditionally given their chapters, including best-selling authors Neale Donald Walsh, Don Miguel Ruiz, Marci Shimoff, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Janet Attwood, and John Perkins. The Light takes the reader through preparation, practices and experiences on sacred journey to reach the Holiest of Holies, the Sanctum Sanctorum, the place where the ancient mystery of the Inner Light is revealed. Covering topics from co-creating a peaceful world, forgiveness, healing, finding purpose and happiness, to chapters about health, wellbeing, destiny, and the mysteries of Kundalini, the book also has practical exercises and guidance, empowering readers to achieve their greatest potential. The message of The Light shines further than helping readers via the content, and charities via the donations. It radiates a powerful message of oneness, of coming together, working

“My life is dedicated to that which motivates, educates, inspires and uplifts humanity. The Light does exactly that – it empowers people to find their greatness and serves to make this world a brighter place for us all.” And Lisa Nichols, featured teacher in The Secret and international bestselling author of No Matter What, said: “The Light has been created out of the generosity of its contributors and is offered in service to humanity. How refreshing! Each chapter is an invitation and opportunity to breakthrough all the baggage of past conditioning and to transform your life from the ordinary to the extraordinary. You, my brothers and sisters, are destined to live in that Possibility.” For more info: to order by internet: Type ‘The Light Keidi Keating’ into and hit ‘order’ to order by phone within spain: Call Julie Chimes on 648 467 391 or email:

Right Food Choices Lose weight Easily & Permanently Rebalancing hormones

OLiVE wOOD 50€ m 3




What if you could learn to improve your health by just making a few simple changes to your daily food choices? Just simply improving your health by knowing which foods to choose that work with your body and promote easy weightloss and a healthy metabolism. Nowadays more and more people are overweight and experience health problems (Metabolic Syndrome), which really all have one common cause: insulin resistance. Right food choices offers a simple, and easy way to understand how food is used in our bodies to help rebalance our hormones. Women can vastly improve their breast health by reducing their weight, because fat-tissue produces oestrogen and any excess fat adds more oestrogen to the body, increasing the risk of breast and uterine disease. No dieting and no calorie counting, just simply re-learning what we should be eating to optimise our health. No need for will power, no hunger, more energy, cost effective and easy to do. You can even have some wine as part of your menu if that is what you are used to. Whether you want to lose weight, improve your diabetes or lower your cholesterol, your blood pressure, your risk of heart and arterial disease or cancer, right FOOD ChOiCEs can give you the tools you need to positively and permanently improve your health. available are • a one-off 2 ½ hour personal session at your home or at clinic – 100€ (travel costs may apply for home sessions) (free short follow up consultations for 1 month) • a 5 hour workshop including a taster lunch 75€ • Additional coaching sessions 1 hour (practice/ phone/ Skype) - 40 £/€ For workshop dates and locations/ appointments/ information call: Janet van Dam on 61 89 89 125 -

New Mum in Town - A Few Weeks In I have found the answer to my never-ending question. NO, there are no home visits from any nurse. Can you believe it??!!

lunch with Papi − I was beginning to forget that relationship! Note to self - must make effort with him too, don't forget 'us'.

I put it down to Spain being soooo family orientated (the families tend to be big), so as a result, it’s the family which offers the necessary help and support to a new Mama. It is a lovely idea (in theory), but when you are a 'guiri', and haven't much family around, this does not help − it's quite the opposite in fact...I just have to get on with it!

But, every day, I MUST BE AT HOME by 5pm! Why? You ask. Let me tell you: 4.30pm - I mentally begin to prepare myself and all the tools I will need are lined up on the table. I remind myself to remain calm and to BREATHE. The time has come, it's 5pm, and...YES...on the dot.....AAARRRGGGHHH!!! The screaming is UNCONTROLLABLE, UNBEARABLE. My baby will not stop crying; she is red from the pain, sweating from the effort and I have NO IDEA what is wrong or what to do! She keeps pulling her legs up to her tummy, but why?

Anyhow, baby girl is now weeks old − not just days! I can't believe how quickly these first few weeks have flown by, and I equally cannot believe just how exhausted (physically, mentally and emotionally) I am. I am still the highly hormonal version of me, and am also still living with wobbly bits and a jelly belly!! I was told that breast feeders practically lose the tum as the baby suckles...well, I feel contractions but the tum is still very much there! Reminder to self see the bigger picture, get some perspective; I have JUST HAD A BABY! Stop whining! At least I am walking normally now − the John Wayne waddle has gone! Our day continues to start and end with breastfeeding and nappy changing (helpful tip; make sure baby has completely finished unless you − and the walls − want to get squirted. Being an eager beaver nappy changer is not good; trust me − been there and got the t-shirt, many times!) Housework has taken a back seat and I just have to turn a blind eye to it; it will get done one day, I am sure.

Absolutely nothing works − not even the boob. In fact, I think it makes it worse! (And I was told that the boob solves everything!) Grey's Anatomy is what keeps me sane during this. Thank you, Divinity, for re-running series 8, and thank you, Dr McDreamy! Between eight and nine pm, a little pee is released, a burp done and silence falls upon us. Mum and baby are finally relieved from an utterly horrible situation and Jazmín is calm and sucking on 'her' boob; bless her. But what is going on?? This has been happening every day for a week. There seems to be a pattern occurring and I am in dire straits. Eventually, I get to see the nurse, and I am told that my baby girl has colic. I am told to give her manzanilla one hour before it starts, to stop using the plastic nipples (WHAT?) and to make sure I wind her properly.

In between boob and butt duties, we do manage a walk. The fresh air does us all the world of good, and I am now an expert at walking both baby and dog at the same time! No, I have not forgotten my pooches and, yes, they are still alive!

So, the next challenge – how to overcome colic!

El Papi and I showed off our little girl at our 'local'. I admit I was nervous, but baby girl was an angel and slept the whole time. How she slept through the noise I don't know, but I was grateful. And it was actually very lovely having

Another new thing to learn...but I can't help but wonder if there is anyone who can help me with this? I think it's time to call my Mum and have a good chat... Until next month...

Great… thanks very much; sounds easy peasy when you know how.

Solar Shade

Should you really have to squint? what do we mean by that? Well, one of the reasons why we Northern Europeans live here in Spain − and especially Andalucia − is for the sunshine. I spent two weeks in the UK just recently and it was grey and overcast the whole time! But at this time of year, we often find that when we look out over our surroundings we have to squint because of the low level of the sun. That's fine for the odd occasion, but when you’re trying to go about your daily business in your home, or just relax behind the glazed-in terrace to enjoy the sun, who wants to be wearing sun glasses all the time − especially if trying to watch TV or use the laptop/tablet/smartphone etc! Well, that’s where Solar Shade can help. We've been established here for three years now, supplying solar control window films up and down the coast and inland to help home-owners not only reduce heat build-up in their living space, but also to control glare. Solar control window films will reduce glare without reducing vast amounts of light. They will not make the rooms dark, but will filter the glare to allow you to use all your gadgets − or simply read the paper − without straining your eyes, and with the film applied, you don't have to pull down blinds which can make the room dark.

Contact: 958 496 571 / 644 546 176

Also, as we've said, being solar control films, they help to even out the temperature in the rooms, preventing hot spots, and at the onset of summer, they work in conjunction with the air conditioning to provide a comfortable living environment. But if the idea of a permanent fix is not to your liking, what about solar blinds? With our solar blind system you can raise and lower the glarereducing material to the height you prefer, and yet still have vision through the blind itself. The blinds can then be fully lowered in the evening to prevent the escape of daytime warmth which has been generated by the sun, so adding to the comfort of the room after sunset. So, go on…improve your living environment and make living in the sun truly comfortable! See main advert opposite for more details.

Maro is a small village at the far eastern end of the Axarquia almost joining on to the much larger town of Nerja. In fact the Caves of Nerja are just outside Maro! When driving through the village and down towards the shore the most significant building is The Mill at Maro which is now sadly in a ruinous state but the powerful buttress or “friendly foot” still underpins the building at the side of the ravine as it looms majestically out towards the sea almost daring pirates to land on the beach below. It is quite remarkable in its structure built f r o m travertine stone that has stood the test of t i m e . Originally built in 1585 the factory was still working until a fire put an end to its useful life in the 1860´s. Felipe de Armengol constructed the first sugar device in the area after deciding to cultivate sugar cane farming and a road was opened between Maro and Granada across the Sierra de Almijara Mountains. The San Joaquin Sugar Mill which was builit in 1884 is located between Nerja and Maro on the old coast road and although now derelict is still an awesome sight. As is the nearby Aqueduct of El Aguila which is currently being

renovated and sits beneath an enourmous net. It has 37 round arches on four floors. Once in the small village of Maro you will find the Eclectic style Church of Nuestra Señora de las Maravillas which is believed to have been built on a previous structure and finished by the end of the 17th century. Its single nave with a wooden beamed ceiling was restored in 1887. The tower has a pyramidal steeple with a small belfry in front. On the day of my visit the wooden doors were invitingly open and I managed to photograph the image of the Virgin of Las Maravillas the patron saint of Maro. Once outside this lovely Church of our Lady of Wonders there is a bar where you can rest and recuperate before visiting the most famous site of the area, the subterranean Caves of Nerja which were discovered by three boys on 12 January 1959. There is a statue of them rock climbing at the entrance to the Caves which has become a huge tourist attraction with more than 15 million visitors who have not only come to admire the caves but also to watch ballet and opera during the International Festival of Music and Dance. The president of the Fundación Cueva de Nerja, Hilario López, received the Tenth Mediterranean Culture Award in commemoration of its 50th anniversary.

Scouse Vasectomy

After having their 11th child, a Liverpool couple decided that was enough, as the social wouldn't buy them a bigger bed and they weren't strong enough to nick one. The husband went to his doctor and told him that he and his wife didn't want to have any more children. The doctor told him there was a procedure called a vasectomy that would fix the problem but it was expensive. A less costly alternative was to go home, get a firework, light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to his ear and count to 10. The Scouser said to the doctor, 'I may not be the smartest guy in the world, but I don't see how putting a firework in a beer can next to my ear is going to help me.' 'Trust me, it will do the job', said the doctor. So the man went home, lit a banger and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count: '1, 2, 3, 4, 5,' at which point he paused, placed the beer can between his legs so he could continue counting on his other hand. This procedure also works in Middlesbrough, Hull , parts of Bradford and anywhere in Wales

Profile Full Name: Mary Louise Streep Birthday: June 22 1949 age: 63 sign: Cancer Birthplace: New Jersey Marital status: Married to sculptor Don Gummer since 1978 Children: Henry Wolfe Gummer, Mary Willa "Mamie" Gummer, Grace Jane Gummer and Louisa Jacobson Gummer Occupation: Actress Claim to fame: Just a bloody good actress On her father’s side, Meryl’s family comes from Loffenau, Germany, from where her greatgrandfather, Gottfried Streep, emigrated to the United States. Her maternal ancestors lived in Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, and were descended from 17th century immigrants from England. She was a cheerleader and homecoming queen in high school; at the age of 12, she studied to become an opera singer. After obtaining her BA degree from Vasser, Meryl originally applied to Law School but slept in on the morning of her interview; she took it as a sign she was destined for other things. Before making it big, she was a waitress at The Hotel Somerset in Somerville, New Jersey.

She made her professional stage debut in The Playboy of Seville (1971), and her screen debut in the television movie The Deadliest Season (1977). In that same year, she made her film debut with Julia. Her role in Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), gave Meryl her first Academy Award nomination and her first win, but during the post-show party, she left her just-won Oscar on the back of a toilet. She has a fear of helicopters. She has received more Academy Awards and Golden Globe nominations than any other actress: 17 Academy Award nominations, winning three, and 26 Golden Globe nominations, winning eight. Her work has also earned her two Emmy Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, a Cannes Film Festival award, five New York Film Critics Circle Awards, two BAFTA awards, an Australian Film Institute Award, five Grammy Award nominations and a Tony Award nomination, amongst others. While she was living in New York City with actor John Cazale, who had been diagnosed with bone cancer, he was cast in The Deer Hunter. Merylsecured a small role in it so she could stay with him for the duration of filming, but shereceived an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her performance. She replaced Madonna for the lead in Music of the Heart (1999), and learned to play the violinfor her role, practising six hours a day for eight weeks. Mamma Mia! was Meryl’s highest-grossing film to date, with box office receipts of US$602.6 million, ranking it the highestgrossing musical film of all time. Her rendition of the title song " M a m m a Mia" rose to number 8 in the Portuguese music charts. She claimed to have had a photographic memory when she was younger, which allowed her to memorise her lines after just one reading.

The Boing 797 It can comfortably fly 10,000 miles (16,000 km) at Mach 0.88 or 654 mph (1,046 km/h) with 1,000 passengers on board! They have kept this secret long enough. Boeing is preparing this 1,000 passenger Jet Liner that could reshape the Air Travel Industry. Its radical "Blended Wing & Fuselage" design has been developed by Boeing in co-operation with NASA Langley Research Centre. The mammoth aircraft will have a wing span of 265 feet compared to 211 feet of its 747 and it’s been designed to fit within the newly created Air Terminals for the 555 seat Airbus A380, which is 262 feet wide.

expected to increase by an amazing 50%, resulting in an overall weight reduction of the aircraft by 25%, making it an estimated 33% more fuel efficient than the A380 and thus making the Airbus's $13 billion investment look pretty shaky.

"High Airframe Rigidity" is another key factor in the "Blended Wing & Fuselage" technology. It reduces turbulence and creates less stress on the airframe which adds to fuel efficiency, giving the 797 a tremendous 10,000 mile range with 1,000 passengers on board cruising comfortably at Mach 0.88 or 654 mph, which gives it another advantage over the tube-and-wing designed A380's 570 mph. The new 797 is Boeing's direct response to the Airbus A380, which has racked up orders for 159 already. Boeing decided to kill its 747X Stretched Super Jumbo in 2003 after little interest was shown for it by Airline Companies, but continued to develop it’s "Ultimate Airbus Crusher", the 797 at its Phantom Works Research Facility in Long Beach, California. The Airbus A380 had been in the works since 1999 and has accumulated $13 billion in development costs, which gives Boeing a huge advantage. More so because Airbus is thus committed to the older style tubular structure for their aircraft for decades to come.

The exact date for introduction of the 797 is as yet unclear, but the battle lines are clearly drawn in the high-stakes war for future civilian aircraft supremacy.

There are several big advantages in the "Blended Wing & Fuselage" design, the most important being the ‘Lift to Drag’ ratio which is

I think you’ll agree, it looks absolutely awesome!!

The Royal British Legion

Shoulder to shoulder with all who serve. The contribution from the Nerja branch of the RBL to the 2012 POPPY APPEAL was over 8,000€. As part of the world wide appeal it will go to help the Legion fulfil its commitments to Service personnel wherever they need it. The largest project that the RBL has undertaken is to provide and support the four rehabilitation centres in Catterick, Colchester, Tidworth, Edinburgh, and the Battle Back Centre, which is an adaptive sports and outdoor facility based in Lilleshall in the West Midlands. The combined pledges to these units are £50 million to be provided over the next 10 years. Apart from these enormous amounts, the RBL provides help and support for ex-Service and currently serving personnel on a day-to-day basis. Other initiatives include funding Blast Injury Studies at Imperial College London, where civilian engineers, scientists and military doctors are finding ways of reducing the effects of roadside bombs, funding the Admiral Nursing Service to support sufferers of dementia and their carers, and providing an entertainment centre for Headley Court rehabilitation centre. At a time when the economic situation is at its worst for a long time, many young men and women will be leaving the Armed Forces trying to take up normal life again. Some will be suffering from injuries, depression and with little hope of slipping back into life as it was before Afghanistan or Iraq. They will need help, as do the ageing WW2 generation. Research shows that 1.8 million people in the Armed Forces community will be living with longstanding illness, 800,000 will be socially isolated and 700,000 will be living below the poverty line. These statistics show why the RBL exists and how enormous the task it undertakes is. In conclusion, Thank You to all who contributed – every penny counts and it is very much appreciated.

e th The first in a trilogy of films adapted from J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Hobbit,” An Unexpected Journey sets out to tell the tale of titular protagonist Bilbo Baggins and a company of Dwarves on a quest to reclaim their ancestral home from the grip of the fearsome dragon, Smaug. The film also serves to establish an origin point for the events leading up to and through Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is a classic adventure quest in the making; packed with colourful characters, gorgeous settings and plenty of

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey starts off with a prologue that explains a bit of backstory, much like the opening of The Fellowship of the Ring. This time, instead of a history lesson from Galadriel (Blanchett), we’re treated to a narration by an elder Bilbo Baggins (Ian Holm). As Gandalf (McKellen) and the company of 13 well-armed Dwarves storm into his Hobbit hole and ransack his wares, Bilbo attempts to turn them away, equipped with only strong words and sulking expressions. Freeman portrays the reclusive Bilbo quite well, but comes alive as the Hobbit who remembers an even younger version of himself who was obsessed with adventure (thanks in part to an appeal from Gandalf). Bilbo, who is recruited into the company as their thief, never becomes an expert swordsman or skilled warrior, but he eventually finds the courage to take a stand and fight, making his character arc in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey more fulfilling than that of Frodo’s in The Fellowship of the Ring.

LT Construction - Town Hall Building Applications One of the questions most frequently asked of me when visiting new clients − and one which causes the most confusion − is the regulations concerning building licences. When are they required and what is the process? Here I will attempt to clear up some of the confusion. Building permits (licencias) are necessary before any construction begins on your home and/or garden − with even the smallest additions requiring licencias. Completing projects that have not been approved by the Town Hall will result in problems in the future − especially when it comes to selling a home, which, if found to contain building works that have not been approved, can be declared illegal to sell. In Spain, there are two different forms of permits for building involving many stages: Minor works permit – La Licencia de Obra Menor is required for any minor changes to a building, such as painting the house or changing the colour of the bathroom tiles.These can be obtained at the Town Hall. Ask for a licencia de obramenor.

Major works permit – La Licencia de Obra Mayor is needed for extending the house or changing its structure, as well as new buildings, demolitions, or remodelling. For this form of permit, you must have a written account and technical drawing from an architect who is registered with the Spanish Architecture College. A builder should be involved at the outset and must also approve the plans. You will need to provide a summary of the construction you plan to have completed and an estimate of the final costs, so that the Town Hall can calculate the taxes. Usually the tax is upwards of 6% of the total building cost. Our understanding of the way things work with the town halls, along with the trustworthy relations that we’ve built up with the planning departments over the years, put us in a position where we can successfully achieve planning approval for even the most complex of projects. Let LT Construction be your first choice in guiding you through this complex and often challenging process. Contact us at or us on 659 324 586 to discuss this often stressful process.

Diary Of A Pommie In The Northern Territory

August 31st Just got transferred with work from Leeds UK to our new home in Tennant Creek, NT. Now this is a town that knows how to live! Beautiful, sunny days and warm, balmy evenings. I watched the sunset from a deckchair by our pool yesterday. It was beautiful. I've finally found my new home. I love it here.

September 13th Really heating up now. It got to 31 today. No problem though. Living in airconditioned home, driving air-conditioned car. What a pleasure to see the sun every day like this, I'm turning into a sun-worshipper - no blasted rain like back in Leeds !! September 30th Had the back yard landscaped with tropical plants today. Lots of palms and rocks. No more mowing lawns for me! Another scorcher today, but I love it here. It's Paradise ! October 10th The temperature hasn't been below 35 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat? At least today it's windy though. Keeps the flies off a bit. Acclimatizing is taking longer than we expected.

October 15th Fell asleep by the pool yesterday. Got third degree burns over 60% of my body. Missed three days off work. What a dumb thing to do.. Got to respect the old sun in a climate like this! October 20th Didn't notice Kitty (our cat) sneaking into the car before I left for work this morning. By the time I got back to the car after work, Kitty had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stuck to the upholstery. The car now smells like Whiskettes and cat s***. I've learned my lesson though: no more pets in this heat. October 25th This wind is a b****** It feels like a giant f****** blow dryer. And it's hot as hell! The home air conditioner is on the blink and the repair man charged $200 just to drive over and tell me he needs to order parts from Adelaide .....The wife & the kids are complaining. October 30th The temperature's up around 40 and the parts still haven't arrived for the air conditioner. House is an oven so we've all been

Diary Of A Pommie In The Northern Territory (Cont.) sleeping outside by the pool for 3 nights now. Bloody $600,000 house and we can't even go inside. Why the hell did I ever come here? November 4th Finally got the air-conditioner fixed. It cost $1,500 and gets the temperature down to around 25 degrees, but the humidity makes it feel about 35. Stupid repairman. November 8th If one more smart person says 'Hot enough for you today?' I'm going to throttle them. Friggin’ heat! By the time I get to work, the car radiator is boiling over, my clothes are soaking wet and I smell like baked cat. Nightmare place is the end of the Earth.

sunny, Hot and bloody sunny. It never bloody changes! It's been too hot to do anything for 2 months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week. OMG! November 15th Doesn't it ever rain in this damn place? Water restrictions will be next, so my $5,000 worth of palms might just dry up and blow into the pool. The only things that thrive in this hell-hole are the flies. You don't dare open your mouth for fear of swallowing half a dozen of the little bastards!

November 9th Tried to run some errands after work, wore shorts, and sat on the black leather upholstery in my car. I thought my arse was on fire. I lost 2 layers of flesh and all the hair on the backs of my legs. Now the car smells like burnt hair, fried arse and baked cat.

November 20th Welcome to HELL! It got to 45 degrees today. Now the air conditioner gone in my car. The repair man came to fix it and said, 'Hot enough for you today?' I wanted to shove the car where the sun don’t shine! Anyway, had to spend the $2,500 mortgage payment to bail me out of jail for assaulting the stupid man. What kind of sick, demented idiot would want to live here!

November 10th The Weather report might as well be a recording.. Hot and sunny. Hot and

APARIV ANIMAL PROTECTION - About us A.P.A.R.I.V. is a small, registered charity whose sole purpose is the care and welfare of abandoned and neglected dogs. Founded 12 years ago, our refuge is located in the hills just outside of the town of Rincon de la Victoria. The number of dogs varies but usually fifty to sixty dogs are in our care at any given time. Our primary goal- and dream – is to find a new and safe home for each of our dogs whether in or outside of Spain. In the event a suitable home cannot be found, the dog will remain in our care and live its life out at the refuge. We have a small group of volunteers who work at the refuge on a daily basis to care for the dogs. We have charity shops located in Torre del Mar and Rincon which are also staffed by volunteers. All items are donated and the proceeds of these are used solely for the benefit of the dogs. We are no different than any other charity in that we always need help. Since we do not receive any municipal or government funding, monetary donations are always greatly appreciated. We also welcome anyone who is willing to volunteer, to foster or adopt a dog and or become a member of our association. Anyone interested in lending a hand can contact us through our website or by phoning Lola on 657-219-269 The little weed allotment group, near La Noria in Nerja, for growing your own vegetables. For more info, call Ted on 637 005 423 or e-mail:

Charity Ball

On Saturday 1st December at the Restaurante Cueva de Nerja The Lodge of European Fraternity No. 52 held a charity ball in aid of Debra. This was very well attended with over 140 people and raised the incredible sum of: â‚Ź2358.80. A cheque was presented during the evening. The entertainment was by the Rat Pack and as soon as "Frank, Sammy & Dino" took to the stage the place was jumping as everyone took to the dance floor.

The group were fantastic last year but, if anything they were even better this year, they are without doubt the best act on the coast, presently working on a new act, this I am looking forward to, their new show. The raffle was a great success with such prizes as: a gallon of whisky, an

oil painting donated by Marie Wahl- Wentzel and two bumper Christmas baskets, much of the contents were given by Lodge members. One of the Baskets was won by David and Betty Mackenzie - who were not at the evening but had purchased tickets to support the charity! The other basket was won by Val Harris. Many bars, restaurants and assocations supported the evening, without their help and generousity the event could not have raised such a sum for the butterfly children. For further details of the charity please visit: Michael Traill, who organised the evening, Tel: 95 253 1312. Nigel Wallace Tel: 95 1321 215

Thirty minutes had passed, and I asked, 'May I see the new baby now?' 'No, not yet,' She said. After another few minutes had elapsed, I asked again, 'May I see the baby now?' 'No, not yet,' replied my friend. Growing very impatient, I asked, 'Well, when can I see the baby?' 'WHEN HE CRIES!' she told me. 'WHEN HE CRIES?' I demanded. 'Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?' 'BECAUSE I FORGOT WHERE I PUT HIM, O.K.?!!' ------------------------------------------------------------How do people know Jesus wasn't born in Liverpool ?

Jokes h a h a :) This is the story of the poor dizzy blonde flying in a two-seater airplane with just the pilot. He has a heart attack and dies. She, frantic, calls out a May Day. "May Day! May Day! Help me! Help me! My pilot had a heart attack and is dead and I don't know how to fly. Help me! Please help me!" She hears a voice over the radio saying: "This is Air Traffic Control and I have you loud and clear. I will talk you through this and get you back on the ground. I've had a lot of experience with this kind of problem. 'Now, just take a deep breath. Everything will be fine! Now give me your height and position." She says, "I'm 5'4" and I'm in the front seat." "O.K." says the voice on the radio.... "Repeat after me: Our Father. .Who art in Heaven. . ..." ------------------------------------------------------------An 80-year-old man was requested by his Doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical exam. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, 'Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow.' The next day the 80-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day. The doctor asked what happened and the man explained, 'Well, doc, it's like this -- first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing. 'Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then with her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing. 'We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees, but still nothing.....' The doctor was shocked! 'You asked your neighbour?' The old man replied, 'Yep, none of us could get the jar open.' --------------------------------------------------------------An Australian, an Irishman and a Scouser are in a bar. They're staring at another man sitting on

his own at a table in the corner. He's so familiar, and not recognising him is driving them mad. They stare and stare, until suddenly the Irishman twigs: 'My God, it's Jesus!' Sure enough, it is Jesus, nursing a pint. Thrilled, they send him over a pint of Guinness, a pint of Fosters and a pint of bitter. Jesus accepts the drinks, smiles over at the three men, and drinks the pints slowly, one after another. After he's finished the drinks, Jesus approaches the trio. He reaches for the hand of the Irishman and shakes it, thanking him for the Guinness. When he lets go, the Irishman gives a cry of amazement: 'My God! The arthritis I've had for 30 years is gone. It's a miracle!' Jesus then shakes the Aussie's hand, thanking him for the lager. As he lets go, the man's eyes widen in shock. 'Strewth mate, the bad back I've had all my life is completely gone! It's A Miracle.' Jesus then approaches the Scouser who says, 'Back off, mate, I'm on disability benefit. --------------------------------------------------------------Paddy takes his new wife to bed on their wedding night. She undresses, lies on the bed spread-eagled and says "You know what I want, don't you?" "Yeah," says Paddy. "The whole f****** bed by the looks of it!" --------------------------------------------------------------Paddy and his wife are lying in bed and the neighbours' dog is barking like mad in the garden. Paddy says "To hell with this!" and storms off. He comes back upstairs 5 minutes later and his wife asks "What did you do?" Paddy replies "I've put the dog in our garden. Let's see how they like it!" --------------------------------------------------------------Mick and Paddy are reading head stones at a nearby cemetery. Mick says "Crikey! There's a bloke here who was 152!" Paddy says "What's his name?" Mick replies "Miles, from London !"

Hey Diddle Riddle

1) A solo dice game is played where, on each turn, a normal pair of dice is rolled. The score is calculated by taking the product, rather than the sum, of the two numbers shown on the dice. On a particular game, the score for the second roll is five more than the score for the first; the score for the third roll is six less than that of the second; the score for the fourth roll is eleven more than that of the third; and the score for the fifth roll is eight less than that of the fourth. What was the score for each of these five throws? 2) Three surgeons and a clumsy cook go camping in the remote wilderness. The clumsy cook stumbles over the campfire as he is serving the surgeons, injuring himself and dumping hot stew on the hands of the surgeons. The cook's injuries need surgical treatment. The surgeons' injuries are minor but open. It turns out they brought the equipment necessary for the cook's surgery with them, and they can use the campfire to sterilize the tools. But there are only two rubber gloves. Because of the different surgeons' skills, all three of the surgeons are needed to operate on the cook, in sequence. How can this be done without any of them being exposed to the blood of any of the others?
