m Fro Ed... the Happy New Year to all the readers of The Sentinella, from all of us who work at “the little mag that fits in your bag:” Keidi, Kami, Tony, Tina and Chris!

It’s our wish that every single one of you has the best year of your life in 2014. Love more than ever, shine your Light, know that you are a special soul, and express gratitude for all that you have and all that you are. These are some of the keys to living a fulfilled and happy life and I try to practice them every day. For me, last year was full of change and amazing happenings. In 2013 I published The Light: A Book of Wisdom, sold it into 8 languages, sold it to a US publishing company along with a second Light book, helped numerous other aspiring authors to get their books published, did my first ever speaking event to an audience of 180 people, married the man I love, and moved to the USA to be with him. So as 2014 begins, I’m feeling blessed and excited to see what this next year brings. I’ve learned that so long as I’m doing what I’m passionate about (which for me is writing and spreading Light to the world) then I’m happy, and I’d imagine it’s the same for every one of us. After all, when we do what we love to do, everything else follows. My personal resolutions for the year ahead are as follows:

Strange News Bearly believable - Passers-by in a Californian seaside resort couldn't believe their eyes when they saw what seemed to be a live bear in a Lamborghini supercar. People in Huntingon Beach crowded round the vehicle to take pictures of the sportscar's unusual pasenger. More than 112,000 people have watched a video of what certainly looked like a real live brown bear, but it turned out to be a clever prank staged to promote the launch of a new YouTube comedy channel. One user commented: "What to do if your Lamborghini does not get you enough attention?" while another punned: "LamBearGhini."

Picture Perfect - Residents of a Merseyside housing estate are worried that property prices may droop - after realising it looks like a giant penis on Google Maps. The combination of George Road, Edward Road and Yeoman Cottages in Hoylake, Wirral, create the similarity, reports The Mirror. Householder Carl Hodge, 45, said: "Since someone spotted this on Google Earth we have all become a laughing stock. You can't argue because it does look just like a man's genitals. "I haven't heard of anyone moving out because of it but we are definitely worried it would put off potential buyers if we ever wanted to sell. "Who would want to live in the cul-de-sac that everyone is taking the mick out of?" The houses, currently worth an average of about £200,000, were erected in the 1950s and 60s but the likeness was only revealed when locals checked Google satellite images. Mr Hodge has even suggested Google 'remove the street from the internet' for fear of reprisals. “It might be funny but it's no laughing matter if you're trying to sell your house," he added.

New Year Resolutions Here are some funny New Year's resolutions for 2013... I will think of a password other than "password" or "hello". I will not tell the same story at every get together.

I will spend less than one hour a day on the Internet. This, of course, will be hard to estimate since I'm not a clock watcher. When I hear a funny joke I will not reply, "LOL... LOL!" Start buying lottery tickets at a luckier store.

I will stop considering other people's feelings when they so obviously don't consider mine - if that unwashed fellow sits next to me again, I'll tell him he stinks!

I promise to clean my room once a week even though I haven't cleaned it more than once in the last year.

I will do less laundry and use more deodorant.

Cut down on exercise. Too much is bad for your health, it can even kill you.

I will avoid taking a bath whenever possible and conserve more water. Assure my lawyer that I will never again show up drunk at a custody hearing. I will try to figure out why I *really* need nine email addresses. I will stop sending e-mails to my wife (husband).

Watch more TV. It's very educational. Catch up on all those programs you missed down the years. Draw up a list of people who were nasty to you in the past year, get your own back on them in the next year! Learn what the hell "resolution" means.

De Cotta Law Debt Recovery - Litigation – Creditors and Debtors by De Cotta Law Succeeding in getting a judgement in your favour in the Spanish or English courts is often the first step in recovering a debt or claiming compensation. However whether you will be able to actually obtain the money that is owed to you depends on carrying out proper searches and obtaining embargoes or charges to protect the assets while the claim is proceeding. If you are owed money by a developer or company or as a result of a private loan it is best to search for property and assets immediately. Property searches can be done and in some cases information can also be obtained about cars, boats etc. Information on bank accounts can only be obtained once you have a judgement as it is only the courts who can make these orders. In England a search can be by postcode only but in Spain it is necessary to search under named individuals or by Finca (Property) number. Equally finding out where the debtor works or lives can be relevant. For example a child maintenance debt can be charged against salary on the basis that the welfare of children is paramount. Once a professional firm or agent has found property in the name of the debtor a request can be made to the court to embargo or charge the property so that it cannot be sold while the debt is proved and or repaid. Often it is best to do this before formally notifying the debtor to avoid them selling or transferring the asset. In Spain the next step is to send a burofax or notification of your claim and ask for immediate settlement. If a charge against the property is obtained and you win the case you can seek enforcement against the assets which means you can ask

the court to auction property to recover your debt. The time this takes will vary depending on the speed of the local courts. However although costs and fees will have to be paid before you get recovery and the whole proceeding may take a considerable time it is often the only course of action open to someone who is owed money. For more information on recovering debt in Spain contact De Cotta Law on: Tel.: +34 952 527 014 Fax: +34 952 523 428 Email: nerja@decottalaw.net Nerja Office: Calle DiputaciĂłn 11 29780 Nerja

Home Security Tips... For the dark winter season. Days are shorter, twilight comes earlier and homes are filled with gifts and goodies from Christmas. Homes are often unoccupied and crime soars. here some hints and tips from ¡PErFECT alarm! SL, for your security. - If you have a security system ─ use it! If it is outdated, and has wires and phone lines which can be cut, it is time to change to a wireless system. - Do not provide easy ways into the house, such as open vents, or pet doors. Keep bushes and trees around windows trimmed low; did you leave a ladder outside the house? - Make sure all doors and windows (including the garage) are locked, even if you are only at the neighbours for just a few minutes. - Don’t advertise you are away. Be careful about what you write in social media (Facebook, Twitter etc). If you pass on your holiday plans on the internet, everyone ─ including internet thieves ─ will know you are not at home. - Put lights on timers to go on and off at different times in different rooms, and leave a radio on. Our alarm systems can be pre-programmed for this, and you are able to monitor it on your iPhone throughout the world. Install movement lights outside the house, and even cameras and infrared fencing. For all your home security needs please call Perfect Alarm SL. See advert opposite

Funny Man Quotes with a woman who has a little pot belly and a bald spot." Elayne Boosler

Great quotes from the famous... "In my house I'm the boss, my wife is just the decision maker." woody allen

"A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him." David Brinkley "The husband who doesn't tell his wife everything probably reasons that what she doesn't know won't hurt him." Leo J. Burke

"Outside every fat man there is an even fatter man trying to close in." Kimpley Amis - British novelist "The theory used to be you marry an older man because they are more mature. The new theory is that men don't mature. So you might as well marry a younger one." anonymous "I told my wife that a husband is like a fine wine; he gets better with age. The next day, she locked me in the cellar." anonymous "No man should marry until he has studied anatomy and dissected at least one woman." honore de Balzac "You never see a man walking down the street

"Do you know why God withheld the sense of humour from women? That we may love you instead of laughing at you." Mrs. Patrick Cambell - to a man "Better to have loved a short man than never to have loved a tall." David Chambless "The most happy marriage I can picture or imagine to myself would be the union of a deaf man to a blind woman."

Interesting Facts - Dense equatorial forests, colonial towns and a major space centre are among the faces of French Guiana, a region of France on the north-east coast of South America. The ethnically-diverse population enjoys one of the higher standards of living on the South American continent. The French social security system is in force, and subsidies from Paris prop up the economy. The first French settlers arrived in French Guiana in 1604. Natural splendour and an abundance of wildlife mean that there is the potential for tourism, but this is inhibited by a lack of infrastructure. The European Space Centre is located at Kourou in French Guiana. Cayenne pepper is named after Cayenne, the capital of French Guiana. In the 1970s Hmong refugees from Laos were relocated to French Guiana. Around two thousand Hmong people settled in an area they called Cacao.

Film iew Rev Carrie "What did Carrie White ever do to you?" That question is asked more than once in "Carrie," and it cuts to the heart of this new adaptation. Where Brian DePalma's 1976 version of Stephen King's novel was a teenage girl's nightmare as seen through the eyes of a straight male voyeur, this one looks through a

wider lens, and strikes more universal notes of sympathy. This Carrie White (played by ChloĂŤ Grace Moretz) is more conventionally pretty than the scrawny, big-eyed misfit played by Sissy Spacek in DePalma's classic. Her gawkiness is internalised. It's a product of her horrid home life, and the knowledge that she has undefined powers that make her different from other kids, and that her mother Margaret (Julianne Moore) sees them as signs of evil, rather than worldchanging human potential. There's a lot to like in this remake. It's interested in exploring the pain that its characters suffer and inflict. And when Carrie unleashes the full brunt of her powers, it's a magnificent and appalling spectacle. The first "Carrie" was horror. This is tragedy. Star Rating: ****/*****

New Alphabet A is for apple, and B is for boat, That used to be right, but now it won't float! Age before beauty is what we once said, But let's be a bit more realistic instead. Now The Alphabet is:  A's for arthritis; B's the bad back, C's the chest pains, Perhaps car-d-iac? D is for dental decay and decline, E is for eyesight, can't read that top line! F is for fissures and fluid retention, G is for gas which I'd rather not mention. H High blood pressure – I'd rather it low; I For incisions with scars you can show. J is for joints, out of socket, won't mend, K is for knees that crack when they bend. L ‘s for libido, what happened to sex?

M is for memory, I forget what comes next. N is neuralgia, in nerves way down low; O is for osteo, bones that don't grow! P for prescriptions, I have quite a few, Just give me a pill and I'll be good as new! Q is for queasy, is it fatal or flu? R is for reflux, one meal turns to two. S is for sleepless nights, counting my fears, T is for Tinnitus; bells in my ears! U is for urinary; troubles with flow; V for vertigo, that's 'dizzy,' you know. W for worry, NOW what's going 'round? X is for X ray, and what might be found. Y for another year I've left behind, Z is for zest I still have-- in my mind. I've survived all the symptoms, my body's deployed, and I'm keeping twenty-six doctors fully employed!

Eating In The UK In The Early Fifties Have things really changed this much in our time? Pasta was something Italians cooked, in Italy. Curry was a surname. Takeaway was a maths instruction. A pizza was something to do with a leaning tower. Bananas and oranges only appeared at Christmas time. All crisps were plain; the only choice we had was whether to put the salt on or not. A Chinese chippy was a foreign carpenter. Rice was a milk pudding and never, ever, part of our dinner. A Big Mac was what we wore when it was raining. Brown bread was something only poor people ate. Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green. Coffee was Camp, and came in a bottle. Cubed sugar was regarded as posh. Only Heinz made beans.

Fish didn't have fingers in those days. Eating raw fish was called poverty, not sushi. None of us had ever heard of yoghurt. Healthy food consisted of anything edible. People who didn't peel potatoes were regarded as lazy. Indian restaurants were only found in India. Cooking outside was called camping. Seaweed was not a recognised food. "Kebab" was not even a word never mind a food. Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold. Prunes were medicinal. Surprisingly, muesli was readily available, it was called cattle feed. Pineapples came in chunks in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real one. Water came out of the tap, if someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than petrol for it they would have become a laughing stock. The one thing that we never ever had on our table in the fifties .. Was elbows!

A New Year’s Resolution The Importance of walking Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at £2,000 per month. My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 97 years old and we have no idea where he is. I like long walks, especially when they are takenby people who annoy me. The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again. I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing..

Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate. I do have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them. The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say, 'Well, she looks good doesn't she.' If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country. I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years,...... just getting over the hill. We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I joined a health club last year, spent about 250 quid. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there!

Random Jokes The FBI had an opening for an assassin. After all the background checks, interviews and testing were done, there were 3 finalists; two men and a woman. For the final test, the FBI agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun. 'We must know that you will follow your instructions no matter what the circumstances. Inside the room you find your wife sitting in a chair..... Kill her!!' The man said, 'You can't be serious. I could never shoot my wife.' The agent said, 'Then you're not the right man for this job. Take your wife and go home.' The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes. The man came out with tears in his eyes, 'I tried, but I can't kill my wife.' The agent said, 'You don't have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.' Finally, it was the woman's turn. She was given the same instructions, to kill her husband. She

took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls.. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman, wiping the sweat from her brow. 'This gun is loaded with blanks she said. 'I had to kill him with the chair! ------------------------------------------------------------And then I said..............

Random Joke Pensioners fast minds.. Two businessmen in Cardiff were sitting down for a break in their soon-to-be new shop... As yet, the shop wasn't ready, with only a few shelves set up. One said to the other, "I bet any minute now some pensioner is going to walk by, put his face to the window, and ask what we're selling." No sooner were the words out of his mouth when, sure enough, a curious old woman walked to the window, had a peek, and in a soft voice asked, "What are you selling here?" One of the men replied sarcastically, "We're selling a***-holes." Without skipping a beat, the old timer said, "Must be doing well...Only two left." Pensioners -- don't mess with them!!!!!!

Random Joke - A Loving Grandpa A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badly behaved 3 year-old grandson. It's obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child screaming for sweets in the sweet aisle, cookies in the cookie aisle; and for fruit, cereal and pop in the other aisles. Meanwhile, Granddad is working his way around, saying in a controlled voice, "Easy, William, we won't be long, easy, boy." Another outburst, and she hears the granddad calmly say, "It's okay, William, just a couple more minutes and we'll be out of here. Hang in there, boy." At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart, and Granddad says again in a controlled voice, "William, William, relax buddy, don't get upset. We'll be home in five minutes; stay cool, William." Very impressed, the woman goes outside where the grandfather is loading his groceries and the boy into the car. She said to the elderly gentleman,"It's none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don't know how you did it. That whole time, you kept your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you as his grandpa." "Thanks," said the grandfather, "but I'm William ....the little f*****s name is Kevin."

A slipped disc, also known as a prolapsed or herniated disc, is where one of the discs in the spine ruptures and the gel inside leaks out. This can cause back pain as well as pain in other areas of the body. The sciatic nerve is often affected in cases of slipped disc. It is the longest nerve in the body and runs from the back of the pelvis, through the buttocks, down both legs to the feet. If pressure is placed on the sciatic nerve it can cause: • a lasting, aching pain • numbness • a tingling sensation in one or both legs The spine - The spine consists of 24 individual bones called vertebrae which are stacked on top of each other. In between each vertebra there are protective, circular pads of cartilage called discs. They have a tough, fibrous case that contains a softer, gel-like substance. The discs help to cushion the vertebrae when you move around. The spinal cord is highly sensitive and passes through the middle of the vertebral column. It contains nerve cells and bundles of nerve fibres that connect all parts of the body to the brain. What causes a slipped disc?

A slipped disc occurs when the outer case of the disc splits, resulting in the gel inside protruding out of the disc. The damaged disc can put pressure on the whole spinal cord or on a single nerve root. This means that a slipped disc can cause pain both in the area of the protruding disc and in the area of the body that is controlled by the nerve that the disc is pressing on. It is not always clear what causes a disc to break down, although age is a common factor in many cases. As you get older, your spinal discs start to lose their water content, making them less flexible and more likely to rupture. Diagnosing a slipped disc - Your GP will usually be able to diagnose a slipped disc from your symptoms and medical history. They may also carry out a physical examination to test: • reflexes • muscle strength • walking ability •sensation in your limbs Treating a slipped disc - It can take about four to six weeks to recover from a slipped disc. Treatment usually involves a combination of physical therapy, such as massage and exercise, and medication to relieve the pain.

Employee Notice For Old People EMPLOYEE NOTICE ************************** Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown in the economy, the Government has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment. This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early). Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the Government to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination). Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering RetiredEarly Workers). A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the Government deems appropriate. Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents &

Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance). Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTEDor SCREWED any further by the Government. Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The Government has always prided themselves on the amount of SHIT they give our citizens. Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your MP, who has been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle. Sincerely, The Committee for Economic Value of Individual Lives (EVIL)

Julia Andrews Turns 69 To commemorate her birthday, actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattans Radio City Music Hall. One of the musical numbers she performed was 'My Favourite Things' from the legendary movie 'Sound Of Music'. Here are the lyrics she used: (Sing It!) If you sing it, its especially hysterical!!! Botox and nose drops and needles for knitting, Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings, Bundles of magazines tied up in string, These are a few of my favourite things. Cadillacs and cataracts, hearing aids and glasses, Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses, Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings, These are a few of my favourite things. When the pipes leak, When the bones creak, When the knees go bad,

I simply remember my favourite things, And then I don't feel so bad. Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions, No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions, Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring, These are a few of my favourite things. Back pain, confused brains and no need for sinnin', Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin', And we won't mention our short shrunken frames, When we remember our favourite things. When the joints ache, When the hips break, When the eyes grow dim, Then I remember the great life I've had, And then I don't feel so bad. Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores.

Caterpillars (Processional Pine Catterpillars) Bought to us by Tina from Happy Hounds. Pine caterpillars (Latin name thaumetopoea pityocampa) are probably one of the most unpleasant creatures you will find in Spain ─ certainly in areas where pine trees grow in abundance. They are found throughout the warmer regions of Southern Europe, the Near East and North Africa. As well as causing much damage to pine forests, they are a major danger to animals and, to a lesser degree, human beings. Do not touch them. Warn your children that they are not like the friendly English caterpillars. The very fine hairs on these creatures are poisonous and most dangerous. They can be seen living in silk cocoon-style nests hanging in the pine trees to which they are most harmful, stripping them of their pine needles. When hungry, they leave their cocoon to seek another uninfested tree on which to feed. They travel nose to tail in a line, hence the name ‘Processional’. They are most noticeable from January to mid April and are at their most dangerous in mid/late February. The caterpillars are often seen in the evenings, walking in procession from tree to tree.

wESTON kENNELS  & CaTTErY Fully Licensed kennels Competa Home from Home for your dogs and cats

If they drop onto you or your pet, don't brush them off with your hands because the effect is most unpleasant, causing great irritation, rash and pain. Dogs, cats and people can suffer from shock. The hairs of the caterpillars are still virulent, even when the creatures are dead. Do not hit them with sticks because hairs flying in the air are just as dangerous. Burn them, but be careful of floating hairs. If the caterpillars are in the tree cocoon state, first spray the nest with hair spray (to seal down the hairs), cover the cocoon and the affected part of the branch with a plastic bag, cut down the branch, place it on clear ground and burn it. Take care only to do this where you cannot inadvertently start a forest fire, because during the summer months the undergrowth and trees are very dry. If you live near pine trees, it is recommended that you keep anti histamine tablets handy as an early treatment. In particular, avoid ingesting the hairs. Dogs are most at risk by sniffing the ground where the caterpillars have marched. Take particular care with your eyes. If affected, the result is serious, causing pain and swelling similar to a bad case of conjunctivitis. Treatment: If a person or animal shows signs of shock, get them to a doctor, hospital or vet immediately.

A Hysterical Moment! Just imagine sitting in traffic on your way to work and hearing this. The DJs play a game where they award winners great prizes. The game is called 'Mate Match'. The DJs call someone at work and ask if they are married or seriously involved with someone. If the contestant answers 'yes', he or she is then asked 3 random yet highly personal questions. The person is also asked to divulge the name of their partner. If their partner answers those same three questions correctly, they both win the prize. anyway, here's how one game went: DJ: 'Hey! This is Ed on FOX-FM. Have you ever heard of 'Mate Match'?' Contestant: (laughing) 'Yes, I have.' DJ: 'Great! Then you know we're giving away a trip to the Gold Coast if you win. What is your name? First only please.' Contestant: 'Brian.' DJ: 'Brian, are you married or what?' Brian: (laughing nervously) 'Yes, I am married.' DJ: 'Thank you. Now, what is your wife's name? First only please.' Brian: 'Sara.' DJ: 'Is Sara at work, Brian?' Brian: 'She is gonna kill me.' DJ: 'Stay with me here, Brian! Is she at work?' Brian: (laughing) 'Yes, she's at work.' DJ: 'Okay, first question - when was the last time you had sex?' Brian: 'About 8 o'clock this morning.' DJ: 'Atta boy, Brian.' Brian: (laughing sheepishly) 'Well...' DJ: 'Question 2 - How long did it last?' Brian: 'About 10 minutes.' DJ: 'Wow! You really want that trip, huh? No one would ever have said that if a trip wasn't at stake.' Brian: 'Yeah, that trip sure would be nice.' DJ: 'Okay. Final question. Where did you have sex at 8 o'clock this morning? Brian: (laughing hard) 'I, ummm, I, well...' DJ: 'This sounds good, Brian. Where was it at?' Brian: 'Not that it was all that great, but her mum is staying with us for couple of weeks...' DJ: 'Uh huh...' Brian: '...and the Mother-In-Law was in the shower at the time.' DJ: 'Atta boy, Brian.' Brian: 'On the kitchen table.' DJ: 'Not that great?? That is more adventure than the previous hundred times I've done it. Okay folks, I will put Brian on hold, get his wife's work number and call her up. DJ: 'Okay audience; let's call Sarah, shall we?' (Touch tones.....ringing....) Clerk: 'Kinkos.' DJ: 'Hey, is Sarah around there somewhere?' Clerk: 'This is she.' DJ: 'Sarah, this is Ed with FOX-FM. We are live on the air right now and I've been talking with Brian for a couple of hours now.' Sarah: (laughing) 'A couple of hours?'

DJ: 'Well, a while now. He is on the line with us. Brian knows not to give any answers away or you'll lose. Sooooooo... do you know the rules of 'Mate Match'?' Sarah: 'No.' DJ: 'Good!' Sarah: 'Brian, what the hell are you up to?' Brian: 'Just answer his questions honestly, okay? Be completely honest.' DJ: 'Yeah yeah yeah. Sure. Now, I will ask you 3 questions, Sarah. If your answers match Brian's answers, then the both of you will be off to the Gold Coast for 5 days on us. Sarah: (laughing) 'Yes.' DJ: 'Alright. When did you last have sex, Sarah?' Sarah: 'Oh God, this morning DJ: 'What time?' Sarah: ‘8 this morning.' DJ: 'Very good. Next question. How long did it last?' Sarah: '12, 15 minutes maybe.' DJ: 'Hmmmm. That's close enough. One last question. DJ: 'Where did you have it?' Sarah: 'OH MY GOD, BRIAN!! You didn't tell them that did you?' Brian: 'Just tell him, honey.' Sarah: 'Well...Up the a***. They had to call an ambulance for the DJ he thought he was going to have a heart attack, he could not stop laughing. There was also an unusually high call out of the Sydney Police just after for minor traffic collisions.

One Hungry Little Mouse The extraordinary scene was captured by photography student Casey Gutteridge at the Santago Rare Leopard Project in Hertfordshire. The 19-year-old, from Potters Bar, Hertfordshire, who was photographing the leopard for a course project, was astounded By the mouse's behaviour. He said: 'I have no idea where the mouse came from - he just appeared in the enclosure after the keeper had dropped in the meat for the leopard. He didn't take any notice of the leopard, just went straight over to the meat and started feeding himself.'

'But the leopard was pretty surprised - she bent down and sniffed the mouse and flinched a bit like she was scared. In the meantime the mouse just carried on eating like nothing had happened. But even a gentle shove does not deter the little creature from getting his fill... 'It was amazing, even the keeper who had thrown the meat into the enclosure was shocked - he said he'd never seen anything like it before.'

Project owner Jackie James added: 'It was so funny to see - Sheena batted the mouse a cou-

ple of times to try to get it away from her food.' But the determined little thing took no notice and just carried on.' Sheena was brought in to the Santago Rare Leopard Project from a UK zoo when she was just four months old. She is one of 14 big cats in the private collection started by Jackie 's late husband Peter in 1989. The African Leopard can be found in the continent's forests, grasslands, savannas, and rainforests.

....so the mouse continued to eat the leopard's lunch and show the leopard who was the boss. Just proves no one can push you around without your permission.

Parents Lesson This is the message that the Pacific High School California staff voted unanimously to record on their school telephone answering machine.. This came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and parents to be responsible for their children’s absences and missing homework. The school and teachers are being sued by parents who want their children’s failing grades changed to passing grades – even though those children were absent 15-30 times during the term and did not complete enough school work to pass their classes. “Hello! You have reached the automated answering service of your school. In order to assist you in connecting to the right staff member, please listen to all the options before making a selection.: To lie about why your child is absent – Press 1 To make excuses for why your child did not do his or her work – Press 2

To complain about what we do – Press 3 To swear at staff members – Press 4 To ask why you didn’t get information that was already enclosed in your newsletter and several flyers mailed to you – Press 5 If you want us to raise your child – Press 6 If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone – Press 7 To request another teacher for the third time this year – Press 8 To complain about bus transportation – Press 9 To complain about school lunches – Press 0 If you realise this is the real world and your child must be accountable and responsible for his/her own behaviour, class work, home work, and that it’s not the teachers fault for your child’s lack of effort hang up and have a nice day!

Royal Navy News The Royal Navy is proud to announce its new fleet of Type 45 destroyers. Having initially named the first two ships HMS Daring and HMS Dauntless, the Naming Committee has, after intensive pressure from Brussels, renamed them HMS Cautious and HMS Prudence. The next five ships are to be HMS Empathy, HMS Circumspect, HMS Nervous, HMS Timorous and HMS Apologist.

The Royal Navy is eager to shed its traditional reputation for; "Rum, sodomy and the lash"; so out has gone the rum ration, replaced by sparkling water. Sodomy remains, now extended to include all ratings under 18. The lash will still be available on request. Saluting of officers is now considered elitist and has been replaced by "Hello Sailor".

Costing ÂŁ850 million each, they comply with the very latest employment, equality, health & safety and human rights laws.

All information on notice boards will be in 37 different languages and Braille.

The Royal Navy fully expects any future enemy to be jolly decent and to comply with the same high standards of behaviour.

Crew members will now no longer have to ask permission to grow beards and/or moustaches. This applies equally to female crew.

The new user-friendly crow's nest has excellent wheelchair access.

The MoD is inviting suggestions for a "non-specific" flag because the White Ensign may offend minorities. The Union Jack must never be seen.

Live ammunition has been replaced with paintballs to reduce the risk of anyone getting hurt and to cut down on the number of compensation claims. Stress counsellors and lawyers will be on board, as will a full sympathetic industrial tribunal. The crew will be 50/50 men and women, and will contain the correct balance of race, gender, sexuality and disability. Sailors will only work a maximum of 37 hours per week as per Brussels Rules on Working Hours, even in wartime. All the vessels are equipped with a maternity ward, a creche and a Gay Disco. Tobacco will be banned throughout the ship, but recreational cannabis will be allowed in wardrooms and messes.

The newly re-named HMS Cautious will be commissioned shortly by Captain Hook from the Finsbury Park Mosque who will break a petrol bomb over the hull. She will gently slide into the sea as the Royal Marines Band plays "In the Navy" by the Village People. Her first deployment will be to escort boatloads of illegal immigrants to ports on England's South coast. The Prime Minister said, "Our ships reflect the very latest in modern thinking and they will always be able to comply with any new legislation from Brussels ." His final words were, "Britannia waives the rules."

& t i u Fr Facts Veg ranges O

Oranges are perhaps one of the most common fruits associated with health benefits, historically being used to ward off – and treat – colds and flu. However, this traditional treat has much more to offer. Oranges are very low in saturated fat, have no cholesterol, no sodium, are high in dietary fibre, potassium, thiamine and of course vitamin C. But it is yet another flavanone in oranges, the herperidin molecule, which has been singled out in phytonutrient research on oranges. Herperidin has been shown to lower high blood pressure as well as cholesterol in animal studies, and to have strong anti-inflammatory properties. Most of this phytonutrient is found in the peel and inner white pulp of the orange, rather than in its liquid orange centre, so this beneficial compound is too often removed by the processing of oranges into juice. Vitamin C – of which one orange supplies 116% of the recommended daily intake -- is the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body, disarming free radicals and preventing damage in the aqueous environment both inside and outside cells. Inside cells, a potential result of free radical damage to DNA is cancer. Especially in areas of the body where cellular turnover is especially rapid, such as the digestive system, preventing DNA mutations translates into preventing cancer. This is why a good intake of vitamin C is associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer. Free radical damage to other cellular structures and molecules can result in painful inflammation, as the body tries to clear out the damaged parts. Vitamin C, which prevents the free radical damage which triggers the inflammatory cascade, is thus also associated with reduced severity of inflammatory conditions such as asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Free radicals also oxidise cholesterol. Only after being oxidised does cholesterol stick to the artery walls, building up in plaques that may eventually grow large enough to impede or fully block blood flow, or rupture to cause a heart attack or stroke. Since vitamin C can neutralize free radicals, it can help prevent the oxidation of cholesterol. The orange, along with some other citrus fruits, appear to offer the most protection significant against oesophageal, oro-pharyngeal/laryngeal (mouth, larynx and pharynx) and stomach cancers. For these cancers, studies showed risk reductions of 40-50% among people who ate one orange a day. One large US study showed that one extra serving of fruit and vegetables a day reduced the risk of stroke by 4%, and this increased by 5-6 times for citrus fruits, reaching a 19% reduction of risk for stroke from consuming one extra serving of citrus fruit a day.

Driving on the old road from Vélez you don´t have to turn off at all and can just park in the street and take a stroll down to the church and the old Apeadero or station house left over from the days of the railway. The old Church or Ermita de San Ysidro Labrador has now been renovated and is worth a visit and there is a monument, near the Apeadero, to Trapiche´s most famous son, the artist and poet Juan Jurado Lorca, born on 15th June 1950. The garden stretch which divides the A-356 from the Hamlet has barbeques and

Full Name: Sharon Rachel Osbourne (née Arden) Birthday: 9 October 1952 age: 61 Marital Status: married since 1982 to rock star – former Black Sabbath leader -- John (Ozzy) Osbourne Children: Aimee, Kelly, and Jack Osbourne Birthplace: Brixton, London Sign: Libra Sharon had an abortion at the age of 17, and lost another baby some years later after being attacked by her parents’ dogs at their home. She then severed contact with her father and did not speak to him again for 20 years. She first came into public prominence after appearing in the reality TV show The Osbournes, which earned her family £11.5m. She later became a talent show judge on shows such as the original British version of The X Factor and America's Got Talent. Sharon met future husband Ozzy at the age of 18 while working for her father, who managed Black Sabbath. When Ozzy was fired from the band in 1979, she took over his management and then dated him. In July 2002, Sharon was diagnosed with cancer, but insisted that filming of The Osbournes should continue. In 2008, Sharon was replaced on the British X Factor by Cheryl Cole. During a 2009 interview on Piers Morgan's Life Stories, Sharon admitted that the reason for her departure was her poor working relationship with Dannii Minogue.

During the BRIT awards Sharon called Vic Reeves, who was presenting one of the awards, a "piss head" and a "bastard" after he appeared to be drunk. Her first autobiography, Extreme (2005) tells of her difficult childhood growing up with her father, and also documents issues of domestic violence, drug abuse, alcoholism, affairs, bribery, colon cancer, robberies, a plane crash, therapy and cosmetic surgery. The book headed the Sunday Times Bestseller list (UK) for 15 weeks. It became the biggest-selling autobiography since British records began, beating the previous record set by David Beckham's autobiography by 100,000 copies, and is the most successful female autobiography ever. Sharon was once quoted in The Guardian newspaper as having sent her own excrement in Tiffany boxes on more than one occasion to people she felt had unreasonably criticised her or her family. Ozzy once knocked out her front teeth in one of the couple’s frequent physical fights. She retaliated by throwing a full bottle of scotch at his head. In August 1989,Ozzy was arrested for attempted murder after tried to strangle Sharon in a haze of alcohol and drugs. She did not press charges. In 1999 Sharon lost 45 kg after gastric band surgery She has admitted spending £300,000 on plastic surgery. In early November 2012, Sharon revealed that she had undergone a double mastectomy after finding out she had a gene which increases the risk of developing breast cancer. The Osbournes’ home in Jordans, Bucks, was burgled in 2004 and gems worth £2 million were stolen. After the incident, Sharon appeared on Crimewatch and offered a reward of £100,000 for the return of her jewellery.

g n i z fe nfish a i m L A ine n Su Mar cea

s ha nd . a e s cie nc pe peara s h ap fis ny nting o b e u Th gest r, ha r lia a l u he pec is t The largest ocean sunfish ever measured was over 10 feet across, and weighed close to 5,000 pounds.

a

O

On average, ocean sunfish weigh about 2,000 pounds. This makes them the largest bony fish specie. Sunfish, or mola, develop their truncated, bullet-like shape because the back fin which they are born with simply never grows. Instead, it folds into itself as the enormous creature matures, creating a rounded rudder called a clavus. Mola in Latin means "millstone" and describes

the ocean sunfish’s somewhat circular shape. They are a silvery colour and have a rough skin texture. Ocean sunfish are found in temperate and tropical oceans around the world. They are frequently seen basking in the sun near the surface. They are often mistaken for sharks when their huge dorsal fins emerge above the water. Their teeth are fused into a beaklike structure, and they are unable to fully close their relatively small mouths. They will even breach the surface up to 10 feet (3 metres) in the air and land with a splash in an attempt to shake off the parasites. Their food of choice is jellyfish, though they will eat small fish and huge amounts of zooplankton and algae as well. They are harmless to people, but can be very curious and will often approach divers.

The History Of The Apron I don't think our kids know what an apron is. The principal use of Grandma's apron was to protect the dress underneath because she only had a few and because it was easier to wash aprons than dresses and aprons required less material. But along with that, it served as a potholder for removing hot pans from the oven. It was wonderful for drying children's tears, and on occasion was even used for cleaning out dirty ears.

old apron could dust in a matter of seconds. When dinner was ready, Grandma walked out onto the porch, waved her apron, and the men folk knew it was time to come in from the fields for dinner. It will be a long time before someone invents something that will replace that 'old-time apron' that served so many purposes. Remember: Grandma used to set her hot baked apple pies on the window sill to cool. Her grand daughters set theirs on the window sill to thaw.

From the chicken coop, the apron was used for carrying eggs, fussy chicks, and sometimes half-hatched eggs to be finished in the warming oven. When company came, those aprons were ideal hiding places for shy kids. And when the weather was cold, Grandma wrapped it around her arms. Those big old aprons wiped many a perspiring brow, bent over the hot wood stove. Chips and kindling wood were brought into the kitchen in that apron. From the garden, it carried all sorts of vegetables. After the peas had been shelled, it carried out the hulls. In the autumn, the apron was used to bring in apples that had fallen from the trees. When unexpected company drove up the road, it was surprising how much furniture that

More Money Raised...

Random Joke :o)

...for Food for Change

Homework

A total of €450 was raised for Angeles de la Noche in Malaga, on a second spa day held on 16th November at Paco’s Bar, Puente don Manuel.

A boy comes home and has a school home work question to answer, so he asks his father "Dad, what's the difference between 'theoretically' and 'realistically'?" His dad thinks and then says "Right-oh son, go and ask your Mother if she'd sleep with David Beckham for a million quid." The boy toddles off and comes back saying "Dad, Dad, she said she would! She would sleep with David Beckham for a Million pounds." "OK son," says his dad. "Now go and ask your sister the same question." The boy toddles off, and comes back saying "Dad, Dad, she said she would too!" So then his dad says "Right, son, now go and ask your brother if he'd sleep with David Beckham for a million pounds." The son comes back excitedly saying "Dad! Dad! He said he would too!" "Well there you have it, son," said his dad. Theoretically we could be sitting on three million quid. Realistically we're living with two tarts and a poof!!!"

The money will go towards their kitchen building project, for which they need to raise €300,000. At present they are working from a Portakabin on the car park next to the Ibis Hotel in Malaga, which means people coming to them for help are out in all weathers. Local therapists gave their services, free of charge, offering treatments as diverse as acupuncture, reflexology, laser liposuction and massage. Additional donations of €112 will be used towards food parcels for Christmas. The next spa day will be in April 2014, at the Lux Mundi centre in Torre del Mar.

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 As the new year begins, you may feel harassed by chaos and conflict. Tackle this by maintaining equilibrium as best you can, particularly with others and most especially within relationships. Wade through this difficult period and you will relish the new level of harmony that´s created

what is safe, necessary and dutiful. Pleasure is unfortunately limited but can be achieved through creative art or cultivation LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 With the help of family love, you are creating solid foundations as tradition and inheritances become more important to you. Couple this with your ability to envisage possibilities with clarity, you can shape great success within your world

TAURUS: April 21-May 21 As the new year unfolds you consider new life plans and goals and some areas that you previously considered important will be less so. A good time to study, research, cultivate new ideals and to lead new projects

SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Your future depends on how to apply your current knowledge while accumulating and fostering further knowledge by means of practical education. If difficult responsibilities have inhibited learning in the past, now is the time to let go and fly

GEMINI: May 22-June 21 New avenues are about to open for Geminis. Have patience and be careful not to allow uncertainty to lead you away from them. They will positively affect your relationships, your work, your creativity, home, children, and even your pets. As this new cycle, lasting two years, begins your vision will be redefined and redirected

SAGITTARIUS: November 22 December 21 Care and caution with resources, particularly financial, should be maintained by Sagittarians at this time. Plan how best to utilise and organise your time and resources and your life will be more fulfilled now and in the future

CANCER: June 22-July 22 You will initiate partnerships, allies and groups in order to create a change of environment in your life. To achieve your goals, you must be willing to work in partnership, rather than sole leader, most successfully with Arians, Librans, and Capricorns LEO: July 23-August 23 You become pragmatic, more organised and efficient. Everything at work is serious business, almost to the point of too much responsibility, creating inward tension. Be especially careful of yourself and children and find time for laughter and play VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Virgoans need to be conservative with time during January and limit yourself to

CAPRICORN: December 22 January 20 To climb the mountains you encounter during January, you need self-control and discipline throughout all levels of your life. Be patient and your steadfastness will lead to a series of satisfying achievements AQUARIUS: January 21-February 19 A glitch in life occurs for Aquarians in January and is symptomatic of the rest you currently require. If you're feeling stressed, fatigued or low on self-esteem, try swimming or other exercise, writing, and seek the company of friends who listen PISCES: February 20-March 20 Your hopes, wishes and dreams may need grounding to be practical. Be careful too of setting intangible goals within groups and organisations and encourage other members to contribute

) : a h a h s e k o J A woman was being shown around the hospital. During her tour she passed a room where a male patient was masturbating furiously. "Oh my GOD!" screamed the woman. "That's disgraceful! ...... Why is he doing that?" The doctor who was leading the tour calmly explained, "I'm very sorry that you were exposed to that, but this man has a serious condition where his testicles rapidly fill with semen, and if he doesn't do that at least five times a day, he'll be in extreme pain and his testicles could easily rupture." "Oh well... in that case, I guess it's okay" said the woman.. As they passed by the very next room, they saw a male patient lying in bed while a nurse performed oral sex on him. Again, the woman screamed, "Oh my GOD! Now tell me how that can be justified?" The doctor spoke very calmly, "Same illness, but he's with BUPA." ------------------------------------------------------------Experts tell us that the best way to make a perfect cup of tea is to agitate the bag. So, every morning I shout, 'Two sugars, fat arse!' ------------------------------------------------------------A Mafia Boss finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out of $10,000,000. His book keeper is deaf. (That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that Guido would hear nothing and would therefore never have to testify in court). When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about the missing $10million, he takes along his lawyer, who knows sign language. The Godfather tells the lawyer, "Ask him where the money is." The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido, "Where's the money?" Guido signs back, "I don't know what you are talking about." The lawyer tells the Godfather, "He says he doesn't know what you are talking about."

The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Guido's head and says, "Ask him again or I'll kill him!" The lawyer signs to Guido, "He'll kill you if you don't tell him where the money is." Guido trembles and signs back, "OK, OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin Bruno's house." The Godfather asks the lawyer, "What did he say?" The lawyer replies, "He says you don't have the balls to pull the trigger." ---------------------------------------------------------------A pharmacist walked into his shop to find a man leaning against the wall. "What's wrong with him?", he asked his assistant. "He came in for cough syrup, but I couldn't find any, so I gave him an entire box of laxatives." "You idiot" said the chemist, "You can't treat a cough with laxatives." "Of course you can" the assistant replied, "Look at him.........he daren't cough now!!" ---------------------------------------------------------------Last night I reached for my liquid Viagra and accidentally swigged from a bottle of Tippex. I woke this morning with a huge correction. ---------------------------------------------------------------My budgie broke his leg today so I made him a little splint out of a couple of Swan Vestas. His little face lit up when he tried to walk.. Unfortunately, I'd forgotten to remove the sandpaper from the bottom of his cage. ---------------------------------------------------------------Last night I was sitting on the sofa watching TV when I heard my wife's voice from the kitchen, 'what you like for dinner my love, chicken, beef or lamb?' I said, 'Thank you, I'll have chicken please' She replied, 'You're having soup, I was talking to the cat!' ---------------------------------------------------------------Women should be like golf caddies, either holding your balls or getting your tee ready!

Jokes h a h a :) A koala was sitting in a gum tree smoking a joint (as they do!) when a little lizard walked past, looked up and said, 'Hey Koala! What are you doing?' The koala said, 'Smoking a joint, come up and have some.' So the little lizard climbed up and sat next to the koala where they enjoyed a few joints. After a while the little lizard said that his mouth was 'dry' and that he was going to get a drink from the river. The little lizard was so stoned that he leaned over too far and fell into the river. A crocodile saw this and swam over to the little lizard and helped him to the side. Then he asked the little lizard, 'What's the matter with you?' The little lizard explained to the crocodile that he had been sitting with the koala in the tree, smoking a joint, but got too stoned and fell into the river while taking a drink. The crocodile said that he had to check this out and walked into the rain forest, found the tree where the koala was sitting finishing a joint. The crocodile looked up and said, 'Hey Koala!' So the koala looked down at him and said 'F*** me...How much water did you drink?’ --------------------------------------------------------------“Doctor, do you think I will live for another 40 years?” the man asked. “Do you smoke or drink?” asked the doctor. “No” “Do you go to bars or discos and party with friends?” “No” “Do you go to Thailand or The Phillipines to have sex?” “No!” “Do you go to Strip joints?” “NO!!” “Do you go to see hookers?” “NOOOOO!!” “So why do you want to live another 40 years and waste everybody’s time? Now F*** off!!!”

Quickies What is a Yankee?

The same as a quickie, but a guy can do it alone. What is the difference between a Harley and a Hoover? The position of the dirt bag. Why is divorce so expensive? Because it's worth it. What do you call a smart blonde? A golden retriever. . What's the difference between a girlfriend and wife? 20 kgs. What's the difference between a boyfriend and husband? 45 minutes. What's the fastest way to a man's heart? Through his chest with a sharp knife. Why do men want to marry virgins? They can't stand criticism.

Saint Stevie The Scouse Section Ferrari's Formula 1 team manager decided to employ some Liverpudlian teenagers as their pit crew. This was because of their renowned skill at removing car wheels quickly. At the first practice session, not only did they change all 4 wheels in 6 seconds, but within 12 seconds they had re-sprayed, re-badged & sold the car to the McLaren team for 8 cases of Stella, a bag of weed & some pictures of Lewis Hamilton's bird getting her kit off!! --------------------------------------------------------------Ah, Liverpool. The only city in the world where JD Sports has an evening-wear department. --------------------------------------------------------------A report out today says 60% of girls under 16 in Liverpool are Binge drinking on a regular basis. I am shocked, who the f*** is looking after their kids?

To Jan's surprise it was her sister Kaye Carlill. Kaye didn't so much dash but was happy with her trolley of 161.20€. Kaye said that she was more pleased, as she picked things that they use, rather grab things she would not need, what a wonderful lady.
