Happy New Year Sentinella readers! With all the absurdness going on all around us in the big wide world – including the election of Trump (with the cartoon-like face I can’t stand to catch sight of), I’m thinking it might not be such a bad idea to hibernate for the whole of 2017 and only wake up on December 1st when I can get the chocolate advent calendar out… at least that’s something to look forward to each day. Or a safer way to muddle through the days might be to simply start a news fast. I am perhaps a little too proud to say that I am not a news watcher. I made a very conscious decision to avoid the news in all the varying forms (TV, newspapers, radio, the man on the train who seems to like to shout about it), some six years ago and as a result I live practically war and negativity free. Okay, I admit, it can be embarrassing at times. What earthquake? Who bombed who? Oh, another ‘epidemic?’ However, I prefer residing inside of what I call my ‘Love and Light bubble’… only Love and Light are allowed in (oh, and sparkles and rainbows), but no dross or complaining or wars or anything that is usually reported on the news with such a serious and fear-fueled voice that it makes me giggle to think about it. No, instead I focus on work and play only… I am a self-confessed work-aholic, but I’m lucky enough to love what I do – which for those who don’t know is editing books and writing books for the most part.

Strange News The thing about those who do watch the news is that they tend to live in a constant state of fear – not a fun place to be. I even had a few friends say to me, “Are you sure you want to risk flying back to Spain with all the terrorist attacks going on?” Errrm, yes, I am perfectly sure! I for one refuse to live my life in a prison, for fear of dying if I step into the world. I much prefer my bubble… and hibernating is okay, but only if you’re a bear.

Ear Ear Dorset man Dan Baker, 35, has won the official title of world’s best Vincent Van Gogh lookalike, beating 1,250 entrants to the prize. His face will now be used as a model to create a bronze bust of the famous Impressionist. Aside from Sunflowers and that thing with his ear, Van Gogh was perhaps most famous for his self portraits. It was his own ‘gaunt, worn’ face and receding hairline that won him the accolade, Dan says, as well as his red beard and high cheekbones. He entered the competition ‘on a whim’ after hearing Canadian author and artist Douglas Coupland make a worldwide appeal to find the 2016 Van Gogh. After sending a few photos and conducting a Skype interview, Dan was named the ‘most accurate’ lookalike of them all. As well as becoming a muse for Coupland, Dan will get prize money of £4,180. Alien Alert An enormous alien mothership was reportedly seen in Ireland recently. Clearly, extra-terrestrials are the only explanation for the bright flash of light, spotted in County Leitrim, Ireland. A witness claimed that as they took a picture, the lights suddenly went out and their phone crashed. They wrote: ‘Walking my dogs up a county road and suddenly witnessed bright lights in a local farmer’s field. ‘Aliens are here guys. It seemed odd as I’ve walked that path many times and never seen anything like this!’

De Cotta - Tax On Holiday Rentals



Income earned on the rental of holiday properties in Spain has to be declared to Hacienda, the tax authority. The rate is now 19% but importantly there are a number of expenses that can be set off against the income. These are IBI (rates), Community of owners charges, Agency fees for advertising and maintenance, and interest on mortgage.

See if you can work this out:

A spreadsheet showing the dates the property was rented and the expenses to be deducted can be used to calculate the tax payable and to enter the tax return. For rentals in 2016 the deadline is 20th January 2017.

What were the nationalities of the four men?

There was a brothel at the top of a hill, with a large red light at the bottom of the hill. There were four men .... one was walking briskly up the hill; one was inside the brothel; one was walking slowly down the hill and the fourth man was sitting in his car at the bottom of the hill.

The man going up the hill: was rushin The man in the brothel: him-a-layin The man walking down the hill: was finish Now wait for it.

A number of property owners who have their tax base in another country - the UK or Holland for example - are concerned that in previous years they may have been declaring this income in their home country. However, the Double taxation relief treaties prevent this tax being charged twice and the declaration on rental must be made in the country where the property is situated. Evidence of the payment is provided by our expert tax consultant who can provide you with copies of the forms showing the tax payment has been made in Spain. In some cases there may still be a small balancing payment to be made but you will not be charged twice on the same figures. The registration of Holiday Rental properties in AndalucĂ­a is essential and we can assist with all aspects of the procedure. The system is working efficiently now and if you have any queries email or call us. For more information and to ensure you meet the tax deadline please contact us on or telephone 952 52 7014

The man in the car at the bottom was Irish, and he was waiting for the light to turn green!

Interesting Facts The people of Kyrgyzstan come from a proud tradition of nomadic horsemen and warriors of the Asian steppe and were once the rulers of a vast empire in the middle of Central Asia. The name of Kyrgyzstan comes from a word in the Kyrgyz language meaning “We are forty”, thought to be a reference to the original 40 clans which unified to form the country. There are over 88 major mountain ranges in Kyrgyzstan, making up about 70% of the country’s territory. If country names were allowed in Scrabble, Kyrgyzstan would score 30 points. Only Mozambique could score more. The most famous person from Kyrgyzstan is writer Chingiz Aitmatov. Author of ‘The Day Lasts More Than a Hundred Years’. Kyrgyz people love to drink horse milk.

Vision Board A vision board is typically a poster board on which you paste or collage images that you’ve torn out from various magazines. The idea is that when you surround yourself with images of who you want to become, what you want to have, where you want to live, or where you want to vacate, your life changes to match those images and those desires. How to make a vision board in 5 steps: Step 1: Go through your magazines and tear the images from them. No gluing yet! Just let yourself have lots of fun looking through magazines and pulling out pictures or words or headlines that strike your fancy. Have fun with it. Make a big pile of images and phrases and words.

for instance. Or it may just be that the images want to go all over the place. Or you might want to fold the board into a book that tells a story. Step 3: Glue everything onto the board. Add writing if you want. You can paint on it, or write words with markers. Step 4: Leave space in the very centre of the vision board for a fantastic photo of yourself where you look radiant and happy. Paste yourself in the centre of your board. Step 5: Hang your vision board in a place where you will see it often.

Step 2: Go through the images and begin to lay your favourites on the board. Eliminate any images that no longer feel right. This step is where your intuition comes in. As you lay the pictures on the board, you’ll get a sense how the board should be laid out. For instance, you might assign a theme to each corner of the board.

Golden Wonder


Golden Wonder is launching a weird new flavour of crisps based on its roots - Haggis!!

Hairdresser dyes woman's hair with Nutella – and the results are amazing!

The firm, originally based in Edinburgh and now in Northern Ireland, celebrates its 70th anniversary next year. A spokesman said: “We’ve been working on our haggis flavour for some time as we wanted it to perfectly reflect Golden Wonder’s Scottish heritage.” The new crisps will be available in both multi-packs of six and single packs. Golden Wonder was the first firm to produce flavoured crisps when it put cheese and onion on the market in 1962.

Well, this is nuts – it turns out you can use a delicious blend of Nutella and condensed milk to dye your hair. Beauty blogger Huda Kattan shared a video on Instagram of a woman having her hair treated with the hazelnut chocolate spread, which, as you're probably aware, is more often used to top toast, fill croissants, or swirl into brioche. The woman had the hair treatment at the Aded & Samer salon in Dubai. She walked in with blonde hair, and walked out with a light, indulgent shade of brunette. The hairdresser's technique/recipe is simple – she smothers the client's hair with Nutella, drizzles a little condensed milk over the top, then puts folds of tin foil over the top to lock in the goodness.


Colon Hydrotherapy also known as Colonic irrigation, colonic hydrotherapy, or a "colonic", is a treatment which is used to wash out the contents of the large bowel by means of copious enemas using water or other medication. Relieves the following: Benefits include: wMakes the digestive system more wConstipation & Diarrhea wAtonic Colon & Chronic effective wMaintains regularity and prevents flatulence (lazy colon) wDiverticulitis & Ulcerative constipation wDecreases risk of colon cancer wSusceptibility to infection & wIncreases energy Eczema wImproves concentration wAllergies & Migraine wImproves whole-body well-being wFungal diseases & Dysbacteria

During treatment a light massage is applied to stimulate and aid the process - Price per treatment: 65€ For more information contact Iris Werner: 629 888 170 Urb. La Sirena 113, Benajarafe

Linea Directa REGISTERING YOUR VEHICLE IN SPAIN. SPANISH LICENSE PLATES AND REGISTRATION DOCUMENT. Registering a non-Spanish vehicle in Spain is a complex and potentially costly procedure. However, you may be exempt from Spanish registration tax by getting Spanish number plates within one month of entering the country. But to do this, you need to become a resident. Linea Directa has been insuring expat drivers in Spain for over a decade and understands all the steps involved. Below we outline this process. STEP 1: OBTAINING A CERTIFICATE OF CONFORMITY This is a statement by the car’s manufacturer that it conforms to EU regulations. You will need the car’s chassis number to complete this straightforward process online at The charges for this service will vary according to type of vehicle, make and country of 1st registration. STEP 2: CURRENT LOG BOOK The vehicle’s original log book showing your name as the owner, the vehicles age and a valid UK address. You will also need the bill of sale for the car. STEP 3: RESIDENCY IN SPAIN The Spanish residency certificate (Certificado de Empadronamiento) is your official proof of

residency in Spain. Your local town hall can provide you with this document. You will need to take your passport and proof of Spanish address (rental contract, contract to purchase or property deeds). STEP 4: OBTAINING A SPANISH MOT CERTIFICATE All vehicles over 4 years old must be roadworthy and clearly display a valid ITV sticker. The ITV (Vehicle Technical Inspection) must be tested at an authorised centre, just as for an MOT test. You can find out the location of your nearest ITV centre on DGT website (equivalent to the DVLA). You can also call your local centre to make a booking. If the centre is busy, especially pre-summer, this can save a lot of time. The cost can vary but generally is around 40€ for petrol-engine cars and 56€ for dieselengine cars. Step 5: OBTAINING A SPANISH EQUIVALENT OF A TAX DISC The Spanish Tax Agency can provide your vehicle with a valid “tax disc” for Spain, which must be carried in the car when in use. You will need to complete the relevant form online and pay the amount according to your car’s tax band. You can carry out all these procedures yourself or you can seek the assistance of an accountant to do this for you. We hope the information provided in this article is of interest.

Ecowash Being a busy mum of two and travelling three times a week to and from Malaga on a gymnastic run with children in tow, making homework in the car, eating afternoon snacks, tea and sometimes even dinner, I am sure you can imagine how messy my car becomes. So it was time for a good old clean.

Innovation In Cleaning Without Water I chose to call and use Ecowash. Ecowash is the first Spanish business to offer a vehicle cleaning service without water at your home, guaranteeing 5-star care. The company offers a personalised and professional cleaning service. You may wonder how you can clean a car without water but it is possible, thanks to Ecotechnology which also minimises damage to the environment. Ecowash uses a range of biodegradable products that clean, protect, maintain and care for all types of vehicles. Employee Joaquin came to my home and I was so impressed that he worked solidly for 5.5 hours until my car was sparkling like new, inside and out. It even smelled like a new car!

Ecowash can also come to your workplace, where you play sports or even in el Ingenio car park whilst you shop – in fact anywhere to adapt to your timetable. Joaquim started cleaning the exterior by applying a special treatment that cleans, waxes, waterproofs and protects the bodywork all at the same time. He explained that plastic parts are treated with special products that return the colour and shine, protecting them from the weather. For the windows and lights, he used an exclusive cleaner that eliminates dirt and leaves them clear. Inside, Joaquim was very meticulous, using special brushes and products for all different kinds of materials (leather, plastic etc.) He explained that the products stop dirt adhering so easily, which means the surfaces don't need to be cleaned as often. Then it was on to the fabric, which he tested first, in order to choose the right product for cleaning. I can thoroughly recommend Ecowash from my experience. I am 100% happy and anyone who knows the usual state of my car will really not believe their eyes!  Ecowash offer loyal customers 40% discount if they have complete cleaning every week. The company is very proud to announce that to date, it has saved 55 million litres of water and guarantee that its product is harmless and good for the environment.

Ac Bamber Broke; bad; stupid; boring; ugly; turnoff; crappy Brother Joe A person who is devoid of talent or charm and therefore must rely on a close family member (usually a younger brother) to provide them with sustenance, shelter and attention Boobies The best damn things since peanut butter Buffer Guest A buffer guest is a close friend that you invite to a party ten or 15 minutes before the rest of the guests are scheduled to arrive. This guest or group of guests is meant to; 1) make it seem like the party has already begun and good times are to be had and 2) make it less awkward in case someone you don't know particularly well arrives before everyone else Barry Typically a very sexy, sweet guy. Usually British Birther A conspiracy theorist who believes that Barack Obama is ineligible for the Presidency of the United States, based on any number of claims related to his place of birth, birth certificate, favourite birthday, or whether or not he has heard the song Africa by Toto Beer Thirty Time of day (usually late afternoon to early evening) at which drinking a beer becomes necessary Business Shower An intimate shower taken between 2 persons solely for the purpose of saving time, completely devoid of any sexual connotation Bogart (Slang verb) To keep something all for oneself,

thus depriving anyone else of having any. A slang term derived from the last name of famous actor Humphrey Bogart because he often kept a cigarette in the corner of his mouth, seemingly never actually drawing on it or smoking it. Often used with weed or joints but can be applied to anything Buffer Race The race between the playback line and the buffer bar on an internet video. Backseat Browser Anyone who sits behind someone who is browsing the Internet while continuously instructing them on what to click on or what to type into the address/search bar. Most appropriately applied when the advice or commands are unsolicited and/or unwarranted Booty Grazing The act of mass texting a generic message to members of the opposite sex in hopes that a guaranteed hookup for the night will be established. It often involves a very nonspecific message such as "What are you up to tonight?" or "Want to meet up later?" The key feature is the lack of personalization so that the same message can be sent to as many people as possible. This can also be applied to other contact means such as myspace, facebook or email Bus Surfing The act of attempting to ride a bus by standing in the aisle like a surfer. The goal is to stand for as long as possible without touching anything (seats, poles, people) for support. Beardo A weirdo with a beard Book Hangover When you've finished a book and you suddenly return to the real world, but the real world feels incomplete or surreal because you're still living in the world of the book Bed Gravity An irresistible force that draws you back to bed, or toward any mattress, couch, or other soft horizontal surface. Usually stronger when one or more persons are already on said furniture

Axarquia Solicitors Law Office The procedure to follow when claiming an inheritance in Spain

Last Will and Testament. This can only be applied for by a person directly mentioned in the will, (an heir or legatee), or with a Power of Attorney, by a legal representative of any interested party. 4. Locate all assets and debts held by the deceased in Spain and collect all documentation relating thereto then compile a list of these.

This article is a brief guideline to follow when handling an inheritance in Spain; but to ensure the correct procedure is followed a specialized lawyer would be recommendable. 1. It is essential to obtain the death certificate from the country where the person died. In the case of foreigners who have died in their country of origin and have assets in Spain the Death Certificate would be obtained there and then should be translated into Spanish and an “Apostille” (an official stamp), should be acquired to make it valid for use in Spain. Without this document, (the only official proof of death), the heirs will not be able to process the inheritance. 2. After 15 working days from the death, The Certificate of Wills and where necessary The Contracts and Insurance Certificate must be acquired. To do this you must fill out an official application form and provide proof of payment of the fee (currently 3.60€ for each certificate). These certificates are issued on the spot. 3. Get a Certified Copy of the will directly from the Notary where the deceased signed their

5. Signature of award deed of inheritance. This is done in writing naming who are the heirs, specifying the inventory of assets and debts, and listing what is awarded to each heir. 6. Payment of taxes. There are two tax liabilities if a property is part of the inheritance: • Inheritance Tax. (We detailed the amounts payable and the reductions in a previous article). • The tax increase in value of urban land known as "municipal capital gain"(Plus Valia) (Both taxes should be paid within 6 months from the date of death). Inheritance also generates notary fees and registration fees which are highly variable since they depend on many factors such as the number of documents or the amount of goods and their value. To this you should add Lawyers fees, as this complicated procedure would require the assistance of a qualified professional.

Arkwrights Leaving Party On Monday 12th December we celebrated with Linda and Geoff from Arkwrights at their leaving party held at Jimmy Beans in Puente don Manuel.

Madrid, Barcelona, Cordoba, Motril and Mollina, Linda and Geoff are now officially retired and what a fantastic turn out it was with more or less 300 in attendance.

After thirteen years of serving the public from Puente don Manuel and with many customers travelling from towns as far a field such as;

Linda and Geoff danced the night away and with the help of Angela Dent’s magnificent buffet and help from her staff a wonderful evening was had by all. Retired they are, but.. Linda and Geoff are not going far, not for the moment anyway, they will still be living within the community and no doubt they will continue to shop in their favourite shop ever, Arkwrights! We at The Sentinella Magazine wish Linda and Geoff a very long and happy retirement.

New Year’s Resolutions It’s that time of year again when we need to pick our New Year’s Resolution. Here are some to think about I will not tell the same story at every get together. I won't worry so much. 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 will be more imaginative. I will give up chocolates totally. 100%. Completely. Honestly....Well for 24 hours anyway! I will try to figure out why I *really* need nine email addresses. I will stop sending e-mails to my wife (husband) and start talking to her. I will stop sending e-mail, ICQ, Instant Messages and be on the phone at the same time with the same person.

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. I will read the manual... just as soon as I can find it. Start buying lottery tickets at a luckier store. I will try to drive closer to the speed limit. Never again will I try to diffuse an explosive device with a known practical joker. Learn what the hell "resolution" means. I promise to stick to these resolutions for more than a week (even though I never do).

The first CD pressed in the US was Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA." The original name for butterfly was flutterby. The phrase "rule of thumb" is derived from an old English law which stated that you couldn't beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb. The first product Motorola started to develop was a record player for automobiles. At that time, the most known player on the market was Victrola, so they called themselves Motorola. Roses may be red, but violets are indeed violet.

Food As Medicine Welcome to our brand new ‘Food As Medicine’ page by Kashi... ( Each month we will be featuring different fresh food items and showing you how they help us all to stay healthy and happy. We'll also be suggesting how you can use your diet to address many common ailments that affect us all from time to time. No 1. Avocado A Brief History… What better place to start than with a locally grown superfood. The avocado tree (Persea americana, Lauraceae) is native to Central Mexico and has been cultivated for over 10,000 years. It was first introduced to Europe by the Spanish in the early 16th century. Obtaining its name from the Aztec word ahuacaquahuitl, meaning, “testicle-tree,” the mature avocado tree can produce up to 500 "testicles" every year. This fruit, actually classified as a berry, requires a subtropical climate and so it thrives here on the Costa Tropical and surrounds. The Food... Avocados are on our short list of near-perfect foods. They contain everything the human body needs apart from vitamin C. They're jam-packed full of the most highly useful nutrients known to man and deserves heralding as both life-giving and life-saving. If you want to lead a long and healthy life, keep reading and you'll see why avo's are absolutely essential in your diet. The Medicine... High in essential minerals and vitamins including folic acid, avocados contain 60% more potassium than bananas and have the highest vitamin E content of all fruits. They are rich in proteins, dietary fibre, antioxidants and "good" monounsaturated fat which makes it easier for the body to absorb vitamins A, K, D, and E. Avocados can also be used in the treatment of: Digestive disorders, Colitis, Gastric ulcers, Gall bladder problems, Arthritis, Constipation and Diarrhoea. The Side Effects... Reduces cholesterol, Reduces high blood pressure, Boosts heart health, Boosts immunity, Controls blood sugar levels, Limits liver damage, Improves eye

health, Reduces risk of certain cancers. Did You Know? The seed is nutritional gold dust. 70% of the antioxidants in the entire fruit are found in the seed. You can grate it, chop and zap it, or dry and crush it into powder and then add to salads, soups and smoothies. Whatever you do with it, don't throw it away! * To prevent avocados from going brown, sprinkle with lemon or lime juice. * Avocados ripen quicker next to bananas or apples in a brown paper bag. * The fruit is climacteric, meaning they mature on the tree but ripen after harvest. * They contain the histamine that is necessary for either sex to achieve orgasm. Carribean Love Potion... Score an avocado seed all over and pop it in a litre of wine. Seal and leave for a month. After the infusion, remove the seed and drink with your amore!

Christmas Pudding Strudel With Christmas fun and festivities now well behind us, it is time to start thinking about eating up some of those Christmas leftovers. If like me you thought you were catering for the 5,000 this festive season and have over purchased, prepared and generally over indulged with your Christmas food, there will be plenty left over (I am sure) that either needs to be crammed into the freezer, or somehow recreated! With this in mind I thought I may be able to offer a little help, by showing you how to utilise some of your excess Christmas pud! I found this recipe whilst browsing a recent copy of a ‘Good Food’ mag. It is a quick and easy recipe that I’m sure most of you will be able to follow, with scrummy results, it went down a treat in our house.... You will be able to source all the ingredients locally and easily, no problems there... so good luck and enjoy!

Ingredients • 250g/9oz Christmas pudding, crumbled • 250g tub of good quality cream cheese • 2 tbsp Baileys • 4 sheets filo pastry (el hojaldre griego) – you can buy this in Mercadona or Eroski • 25g melted butter • icing sugar, for dusting • serve with cream custard, or ice cream Method 1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/. Crumble the pudding place in a bowl and mix with the cream cheese and Baileys. 2. Lay out a sheet of filo on a large flat baking tray, brush with some melted butter and lay another sheet on top. Repeat with more butter and filo until you have 4 layers. 3. Place the filling in a log shape in the centre and brush the border with butter. 4. Roll up to enclose the filling, then brush with the remaining butter. Can be chilled for 1 day until ready to bake. So you can prepare ahead if you need to. 5. Bake for 20-25 mins until golden brown, dust with icing sugar and serve warm with cream, ice cream or custard.

Enjoy! Sue x

providing relief from fever. Both varieties have good antiseptic and antibiotic properties. They also eliminate infections already present. If applied to the hair, it kills lice and mites.


Both varieties are effective in fighting depression and raising spirits. They eliminate feelings of sadness, depression, disappointment, and sluggishness while inducing a sort of happy or charged feeling.

Camomile oil is extracted from the flowers of the Camomile plant, which is very popular as a flowering plant. There are two types of Camomile, the Roman Camomile, and the German Camomile.

Roman Camomile is found to be effective in calming down annoyance, anger and irritation, particularly in small children.

While Roman Camomile oil is more calming, German Camomile oil is a very powerful antiinflammatory agent.

They are very popular in the world of cosmetics, since they diminish the scars, marks and spots on the skin and on the face.

Both varieties of camomile oil induce profuse perspiration, which helps to remove toxins and agents that cause infections while simultaneously cooling down the body and effectively

They are very good at expelling gas from the intestines and stomach while also curbing additional gas formation.

Perfect Alarm Why change your old CCTV analog camera and use an IP camera? This is our one question we get from those people who have been using analog CCTV (closed circuit TV) systems for many years. Actually CCTV has been around for over 45 years. Today IP Cameras are beginning to dominate the CCTV market. What do IP cameras bring to the table? Well, they provide much higher resolution (among other things). Today resolution is only limited by the sensors, microcomputers and lenses of the camera, and can provide over 8 MegaPixels of resolution. Did you know, IP cameras are coming down in price and are now very nearly the same price as the analog cameras. Higher resolution means higher quality of the image. As the resolution goes up, the image becomes more clear. It becomes sharper, more defined and provides much better details. For example you can read license plates and recognise faces. IP cameras now have a capability that the old video cameras don’t have. They have a computer built in. The computer provides the capability to perform video analytic functions such as motion detection. Instant push notification on your tablet or smartphone gives you the key to a safer home or business. Many IP cameras also have the ability to use a memory card to store the video. Today DVR or Screen are the thing of the past.

have a lot of experience with this technology and can help you get exactly what you need.

IP cameras are the future, and we are a part of that future. If you need help specifying and using IP camera systems, just contact us. We

Diets Most of us have tried to diet at least once, in order to lose a few extra pounds. We’ve given up our favourite foods, changed how much we ate, what we ate, and when we ate. Most of us also realised that even though it’s essential for our health, dieting is not easy at all. If you’re looking for a way to cope with dieting, why not try humour? Calories (noun): Tiny devious creatures that live in our closets, and make our clothes smaller and smaller every night. Diet (noun): An odd process where, instead of watching what we eat – we watch what other people eat. A professional dietitian was lecturing in front of a group of people who wanted to lose weight. “The food we eat is so bad for us, that it will still hurt our health several years down the road,” she said. “Sugary drinks eat up the lining of our stomach, processed food is full of chemicals, meat is full

of preservatives, and even our water is filled with germs. And I haven’t even gotten to fatty foods yet! Do you know which type of dessert will give you the most troubles and suffering for many years after you’ve eaten it?” The whole group fell silent, until an 80-year-old man sitting in the back stood up and said: “A wedding cake…” Last week, I was driving through town and passed by a small bakery. The cakes and cookies in the window seemed to summon me, and the smells from within didn’t help my self-control. I knew then and there that this is not a coincidence, but fate, so I prayed to the lord: “God, why do you tempt me so? If you truly want me to stop dieting, give me a sign and open up a parking space right in front of the bakery.” It appears that I was right, and my prayer came true – after driving in circles around the place, a parking spot opened up right in front!

Diets My wife left a note on the fridge door saying: “This isn’t working, I’m leaving.” I opened the door and the darn thing was working just fine! I’ve got no problems with fresh vegetables, steamed rice, steamed broccoli, whole grain, and low-fat yoghurts. Just keep them away while I’m eating.

“That sounds horrible!” Cathy says. “Are you going to confront him about it?” “Of course”, answers Jane. “In 6 more pounds!” Everyone asks me how, despite all the diets I’ve tried, I still cannot seem to lose any weight. Between you and me, I don’t want to brag, but I guess I’m just that good! This week I managed to finish my 2-week diet in three hours and 29 minutes!

Cathy decided to meet her friend Jane after not seeing her for weeks. When they met, Cathy exclaimed: “Jane! How did you lose all that weight?” Crestfallen, Jane replies: “It’s my husband, I’m sick and tired of him. He drives me crazy every day. He never washes his dishes, leaves his dirty laundry out, his work papers are all over the place, and every night I have to dig under the sofa for his socks. I just run around the house all the time.”

y t i r eb l e C ews N Real baby A couple who met on reality TV have just welcomed their first child together – but even that was a drama. Zoe Hendrix met her husband Alex Garner for the first time moments before they wed on Australian TV show Married at First Sight, and have had a whirlwind first year of marriage. Zoe was induced last month after she suffered with pelvic problems during her pregnancy, and has revealed she had a "terrifying" birth experience. While daughter Harper-Rose was being born, the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck – twice. But luckily she was born happy and healthy and the proud parents have had time to reflect. "Sitting here holding something so precious – that is a part of me, that is my blood – is something I've always dreamed of, and I will cherish it forever," Zoe said. Fake Planet? Sir David Attenborough and his cast have pulled together another epic series of Planet Earth, but the BBC admits there is one aspect of Planet Earth 2 that is fake. BBC bosses admitted the sound on the popular show can be altered or adapted to eliminate any noises that could “take away” from the scenes. Fans of the nature documentary have taken to Twitter to complain about the edits. One watcher wrote: "I love Planet Earth, but enough with the sound effects please. A lizard gliding through the air does not sound like a jet." Another added: "Planet Earth II is gorgeous, but I absolutely hate hate hate the fake sound effects every time something moves." And the complaints didn't stop there as someone else agreed: "Had to turn Planet Earth 2 off yesterday. Great cinematography but can't

be doing with the sound effects, drama and 'softening' of reality." But the producers and directors said "Wildlife film soundtracks are a combination of sounds recorded in the wild during the filming, or recorded in the wild previously, as well as sounds that must be re-created in a studio and, of course, music. "Some sounds are removed because they would distract from the tone of the film (eg helicopter rotor blades may be replaced by music over sweeping aerial shots). This is normal in documentary filmmaking." Stolen love I'm A Celebrity star Ola Jordan has revealed she met Strictly husband James when he already had a steady girlfriend. The Strictly Come Dancing babe unveiled in her new book that she was instantly drawn to James when they met; they have now been together for 17 years. “He was tall and very good-looking, with slicked-back black hair and piercing blue eyes,” she wrote. “His dancing was amazing. “His partner was Polish, and when I watched them dance together I was filled with just one thought: ‘I want to have a partner like that one day.’"

As ‘Summer’, she thought she knew it all before coming to her senses and being picked for the school rock group. Cosgrove’s career started much earlier, though, because she started appearing in TV commercials when she was just three, having been talent-spotted while singing in a restaurant in Los Angeles. In 2004, she landed her first major role in a television series when she was awarded a star part in the Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh, and had her own Nickelodeon sitcom, 'iCarly,' for five years until 2012, when the series was terminated.

New Year Facts Happy New Year! 1. Some people wear adult diapers while celebrating New Year at Time Square due to the lack of toilets. 2.

In 2010, a “Black Widow” suicide bomber planned a terrorist attack in central Moscow on New Year’s Eve, but was killed when a spam message from her mobile phone operator wishing her a happy new year received just hours before the planned attack triggered her suicide belt, killing her, but nobody else.

4. Beethoven’s 9th Symphony was introduced to Japan by German POWs in WWI (who played it for them), and it is now a national tradition to perform it every New Year’s.

8. On New Year’s Day in 1976, a man named Danny Finegood changed the Hollywood sign to “Hollyweed” as a college prank in order to celebrate the decriminalization of marijuana and got an “A” for it.

5. When religion was suppressed in Soviet Russia, Santa/St. Nick was replaced with Grandfather Frost, called the spirit of winter, who brought gifts on New Year’s and placed them under the “New Year tree.”

9. The ancient Hawaiian New Year was four months long, war was forbidden, people stopped working, and the people spent time dancing, feasting and having a good time.

6. In Korea and some other Asian countries,

10. There is a music festival every New Year’s eve in the Antarctic called ‘icestock.’

Random Jokes A mate of mine has just started a new job in the Mr Kipling factory. He's enjoying it, but says it's Rudyard work. When I was growing up plastic surgery was a bit of a taboo subject, these days if you mention botox no one raises an eyebrow A young lad knocked on the door last night and said "Trick or Treat?" I said "What have you come as?"

He said "A werewolf." I said "But you haven't got a costume on, you're just in normal clothes" He said "Well it's not a full moon yet is it, d*******d?" Is wondering "would it be wrong to hold an OCD meeting at my house just for the sole purpose of getting someone else to clean it for me?"

& t i u Fr Facts rries Veg Goosbe Far from being an ‘odd one out’, the humble gooseberry is a major player in our battle to maintain good health and well-being. Eyes – regular consumption of gooseberry juice, along with honey, has been shown to improve nearsightedness and cataracts, while decreasing intra-ocular tension. This is mainly due to its high carotene content, long known for its powerful effect on vision-related disorders. Vitamin A and carotenes reduce macular degeneration and strengthen your vision. Digestion – just like most of the fruits, gooseberry is very high in fibre, which helps to add bulk to the stool and keeps bowel movements regular. Fibre also encourages the secretion of gastric and digestive juices, hence food is digested efficiently, nutrients are absorbed in an optimal way, and you feel lighter and healthier. Diabetes – gooseberries contain chromium, which helps diabetic patients. The Indian gooseberry encourages the isolated group of cells that secrete the hormone insulin, thus decreasing blood sugar in diabetic patients and keeping their body balanced as well as healthy. Chromium also improves the effect of beta blockers, which are used for heart health, by decreasing the LDL cholesterol content of the body. Calcium Absorption – the gooseberry helps the body absorb calcium in a positive way. Calcium is a crucial component of our bones, teeth, hair and nails. Cancer – gooseberries are a rich source of antioxidants, which prevent DNA cell damage from free radicals, and due to their high Oxidative Radiance Activity Capacity (ORAC), they protect cells from oxidative stress. During research, it was found that gooseberry has tremendous effect on multiple cancers both by slowing down the growth of tumours and then by killing off cancer cells. Menstrual Cramps – the fruit contains many

minerals and vitamins which help in the treatment of menstrual cramps. Since it takes a while for the necessary elements to accumulate in the body, it is better to consume gooseberries on a regular basis so it is always in the system. Brain health – other vitamins and minerals contained in gooseberries help to improve brain health, and encourage oxygen to be delivered to the brain, thus improving memory. The fruit’s high antioxidant content also helps to prevent degeneration of the brain caused by free radicals, and symptoms of ageing. Diarrhoea and Dysentery – due to its strong cooling and laxative properties, the gooseberry is a wonderful component in remedies for diarrhoea and dysentery. It offers great relief for gastric syndrome as well as hyperchlorhydria (burning sensation in the abdomen). Hair care – gooseberry is used in several hair tonics because it enhances hair growth and hair pigmentation. It fortifies the roots of the hair, maintains colour and improves lustre. Regular consumption of fresh gooseberry or applying its paste on hair roots improves hair growth and colour. Improving Appetite – regular consumption of gooseberry powder with butter and honey before a meal improves appetite. It also helps to balance nitrogen levels. Diuretic Activity – gooseberry is slightly diuretic in nature, so it increases the frequency as well as volume of urination, helping to eliminate unwanted toxins and excess levels of water, salts, and uric acid from the body.

People Who Come And Go - Jean’s New Life! After eight weeks staying in Greece considering whether to buy a home on an idyllic Greek island, Jean, a retired widow from Scotland, packed her suitcase and took a flight home. Soon afterwards, she found herself in the middle of another idyllic whitewashed village, with wonderful views all around and the Mediterranean sparkling in the distance.. but this time it was not on a Greek island, it was Canillas de Aceituno! And what a beautiful village, and a wonderful place to live. The village has all the shops you could need for daily life and friendly locals, intermingled with a generous sprinkling of very happy, settled foreigners! Within hours of arrival, Jean had already met many people, including some who immediately offered to take her on shopping trips, or to Malaga and ready to give advice and good contacts. So why the switch? “I had looked at Canillas before going to Greece and saw a house for sale I liked the look of, and after I decided not to buy in Greece, mainly due to the complicated situation with the house I was considering buying, I noticed the house in Canillas had

been reduced in price. I ended up buying a different house, but am very happy with my choice!” Jean has a 2 bedroom village house, nicely renovated, with a little roof terrace with pleasant views. “I feel comfortable in the village, everyone is so friendly and welcoming. I don’t have a car, and for the moment I have no plans to buy one. I would really love to learn the language, so I shall be starting that in the new year. My son, who lives on the other side of the world, has been so supportive and I can’t wait for him to see the house, when he is over in a few weeks!” We wish Jean a very happy new year and new future in her little house in the sun!

Asbestos - Have You Been In Contact?

In this edition, I thought I would look at a number of questions that often arise and that make people worried about the possibility of making a claim. My message is, if in doubt ask!

breathing difficulties can be attributed to asbestos. This is the point we have to prove in all respiratory disease cases, not just asbestos related but also, for example, silicosis – medical evidence is required to prove a link.

I CANNOT REMEMBER WHERE I WORKED OR THE COMPANY I WORKED FOR NO LONGER EXISTS. It is not unusual for companies that traded in the 1960’s, for example, to have long since stopped trading. With investigations I can trace insurers who provided cover for these companies and they are obliged to deal with the claims.Even if you are hazy about the exact name of a company or your period of employment with them, I can obtain your work history from HM Revenue & Customs and this provides confirmation of who you worked for all those years ago.

Claims for breathing problems caused by exposure to asbestos can be complex but the quicker the claim is started the quicker these issues can be dealt with. So, if you are concerned about your particular situation or have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch. I am happy to talk to you free of charge.

I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH AN ASBESTOS CONDITION BUT I DID NOT WORK WITH ASBESTOS. I always like to meet my clients and it is surprising how often, when you start talking about a persons work history, what they remember. Often, it turns out that even if a person did not actually work with asbestos, they worked alongside people who did and therefore came into contact with dust. Another possibility, and a particularly sad one in my experience, is a wife who comes into contact with asbestos from her husband’s work clothes. A RELATIVE HAS DIED FROM AN ASBESTOS RELATED CONDITION BEFORE MAKING A CLAIM It is not widely known that claims can be made even though the person affected has died (provided the claim is made within 3 years of death). The claim is made on behalf of the persons estate. DIAGNOSING AN ASBESTOS RELATED CONDITION There are a number of conditions that can be caused by exposure to asbestos, including lung cancer. The main issue is whether the

La Vaqueria - Benamargosa Happy New Year All, La Vaqueria wishes you the very best in 2017 Having worked "our socks off" seven days a week at "The Cowshed" we are now enjoying a month off - as is our custom every year, so we look forward to seeing you again on Wednesday 1st of February. This just happens to be art class day so why not come along and start a new hobby or rekindle an old hobby or simply have a go and meet new friends.

a few years back noticed the streets full of people queuing on a Saturday morning, this phenomenon is not solely restricted to one area.... these groups of the homeless, addicted, hungry and less fortunate than ourselves have several places of refuge within the municipal boundaries where they can go once a week for food, clothing, help and compassion.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who encourages us in our endeavors, your presence, visits and online support have helped enormously during this last year as we continue to build and improve La Vaqueria and now we really are a family business with daughter number 1, Josie, firmly established in the kitchen.

For several years now La Vaqueria has supported the groups of volunteers who give there time for free by collecting clothes, blankets and anything else we think might be of use so a big thank you to everyone who collects for us and takes the time to drop off useful things and this year a special thanks to "Los Ninos de Ivan" an entertainment group who put on a show for our medieval banquet last month for free so that we could make a donation of food and toiletries to help.

Another of Miss Rowling’s creations, unlike Harry Potter’s reality, which unfolds in a present that looks like ours but with dragons, “Fantastic Beasts” takes place in a 1926 New York, where dark forces cut swaths of destruction.

This time the wizard isn’t a boy on the verge of manhood but a man idling in boyhood, Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). Newt, a British magizoologist (a collector-protector of exotic animals) has landed in New York enroute home from his travels scooping

up specimens, where trains run on elevated tracks. He’s soon swept up in assorted goingson, some involving the beasts that have slipped out of his suitcase, others involving homegrown wizards and witches. As in Harry’s world, something terrible is intent on stirring up trouble — knocking down buildings, tearing up cobblestone streets. Newt’s mission to save the furred and feathered beings from the darkness that shows up in a few different ominous characters. You’ll have to watch the movie to find out what I mean. It’s worth the watch just to see those beasts, although I didn’t feel this movie had an effective beginning, middle and end. As I write this review, I am still trying to figure out the end, and what actually happened Star rating ***/*****

Sparkle For Life: Szigeti For numerous people sparkling wines are a very popular choice and, indeed, make an occasion into a celebration, evoking style and sophistication. Many countries, globally, produce sparkling wines. Some of the producing companies are large and others are family businesses. I searched for a well-established company, producing a range of sparkling wines – in fact something to suit every palate and occasion. I found very impressive sparkling productions from multi award-winning Szigeti. This Austrian

company, in its modern-day form, was founded in 1990 by Norbert and Peter Szigeti and produces a range of sparkling wines, using the traditional method. Previous generations had been producing wines, but in small volumes. Grüner Veltliner Brut is always extremely popular and appreciated by many. The delicate aroma complements the fine and fresh mouthfeel of this versatile production. Muscat Ottonel Extra Dry is another wine that is also often selected, by a good number of devotees. Fine and with elegance are descriptions that I frequently hear attributed to this wine. Gols Prestige Brut is, I would describe, exclusive. This

exceptional production has a superb structure, is full-bodied on the mouthfeel and palate sensation, plus it has a splendid finish. The graceful, elegant bubbles of sparkling wines add something – about life – to the vast number of times this type of wine is enjoyed, whether from the start to the finish of a dining occasion or simply to be drank on their own. These full-bodied, well-structured wines, with typical aromas of fruits, plus ample fruits for the mouthfeels, bring alive the sensations of the palate. Other impressive productions, from Szigeti, include Pinot Blanc Brut and Traminer Brut. Cuvée Tokaji Brut Réserve – widely known as ‘liquid gold’ – always impresses, with a ‘complete’ sensational experience, throughout.

The wine productions from Szigeti have received numerous awards over many years. The winery’s philosophy is ‘Traditional bottle fermentation. Unmistakable fizz. Unique character’. The company continues with its original concept to produce exceptional, outstanding wines, very well presented, that bring pleasure and a wonderful experience to all. The website has all details of the full range, plus information about stockists and availability, etc.

As Always Enjoy! By Trevor Langley

tal way

ARIES: March 21-April 20 Are you ready for the New Year or are you still wondering what happened to 2016? Set aside some time during the first part of the year to plan and you’ll be pleased how well the year will start off for you!

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 You are in a communicative mood at the start of the month with an irresistible urge to connect. Say whatever is in your heart and your friends and loved ones will be happy to know just what it is that you’re thinking, in fact they’ll feel privileged you chose to share it with them!

TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Try adding a new exercise or other health element to your routine, whether it’s mountain climbing, swimming or massage. Worrying is not the least bit productive, so rely more on your gut level instincts, or your very practical intuition, and you`ll sleep better

SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 This is a month to listen to yourself, trust what you know and let your deepest impulses be your guiding light. A business opportunity, the start of something that could be huge, appears at the end of January requiring collaboration with someone you are lucky comes your way

GEMINI: May 22-June 21 Gemini, you are a super smart zodiac sign, but don’t try to solve all your relationship issues with your brain. There are some things that require the heart to make the decisions - save your grey cells for work!

SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 From the beginning of the year, you are surrounded by friends and loved ones, helping you to feel free to explore while confident that you’ve taken the right path up to now. You’re happy with the choices you’ve made and you’re excited about the projects ahead of you. Celebrate! This is a pretty special time

CANCER: June 22-July 22 Whether it’s eating healthier, getting to bed earlier, working out more or finally finding that life-partner you’ve been missing, your determination to take responsibility for your own health and happiness is going to have a major impact on everything you do LEO: July 23-August 23 How`s work? Is it creative enough for you? Do you have room to grow or is the atmosphere oppressive? If you are in a situation that is too rigid to grow, then you might want to find work that is more enlightened VIRGO: August 24-September 22 If you can, travel on the 13th and 14th of January. Flexibility is the key to so much in life, so do your best to bend and stretch and sway when your instinct might be to stay rigid on the 19th and 20th. Try not to be critical of your work colleagues, instead express your honest opinion in non-judgmen-

CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 You have some amazing plans and what’s even more extraordinary is the speed and ease with which these ideas and plans will come to fruition this month and year. You shouldn’t hesitate to dream big AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 You`ll meet interesting people and have an array of possibilities opening up, making you feel pretty good and having a positive impact on your life all year. Give yourself a huge high five! PISCES: February 20 - March 20 If you felt 2016 was a bit too much, then you may find the early part of 2017 is intense as well. Take really good care of yourself and maintain your sense of humour during January and be sure to enjoy the extremely good luck that’s coming your way

) : a h a Jokes h Thanks to AP & MP for the following jokes I was driving when I saw the flash of a traffic camera. I figured that my picture had been taken for exceeding the limit even though I knew that I was not speeding. Just to be sure, I went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. Now I began to think that this was quite funny, so I drove even slower as I passed the area once more, but the traffic camera again flashed. I tried a fourth and fifth time with the same results and was now laughing as the camera flashed while I rolled past at a snail's pace. Two weeks later, I got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt ------------------------------------------------------------A farmer gets a phone call from his son, “I’ve run over a pig and it’s trapped under the tractor still alive” “Shoot it! said the farmer “And bury it!” About 20 minutes later he gets another call... “Ok done that, now what do I do with the speed camera and motorbike?” ------------------------------------------------------------So, my daughter Charli says to me, "Dad, you're getting fat" and I replied "yes daughter, I've had a lot on my plate recently" ------------------------------------------------------------Been thinking about all this fuss about Christmas and it suddenly occurred to me that if Jesus was really born in Bethlehem, how come he got a Mexican name? ------------------------------------------------------------Dave and Dorris decided after 27 years of marriage they need to spice up their sex life. Dave bought some flavoured condoms and suggested they play a guessing game where he would put one on and Dorris had to taste it and guess the flavour. So, they jump into bed and Dorris goes straight down there for a taste then pops up and says "Cheese and onion". Dave says, “Gimme a chance, I haven't put one on yet.” -------------------------------------------------------------

My youngest daughter, Leoni asked me: 'Where does poo come from?' So, I explain (refering to my memory of high school Human Biology), that food passes down the oesophagus to the stomach, where digestive enzymes induce a probiotic reaction in the alimentary canal; this reaction extracts protein and other nutrients before waste products descend via the colon and rectum to emerge as 'poo'. “Blimey,” says Leoni “And what about Tigger?” ------------------------------------------------------------Just completed a jigsaw in under 20 minutes. Really chuffed because it said "up to 5 years" on the box. ------------------------------------------------------------I went to the doctors with hearing problems. He says “Can you describe the symptoms?” I said “Homer’s a fat bloke and Marge has blue hair.” ------------------------------------------------------------I lost the bar trivia contest last night by one point. The last question was, "Where do women have the curliest hair?" Apparently the correct answer is, Fiji ------------------------------------------------------------At breakfast this morning, my wife said she's leaving me because of my obsession with Twitter. I almost choked on my #Brown. ------------------------------------------------------------I am hosting a charity concert for people who struggle to reach an orgasm. If you can't come let me know. ------------------------------------------------------------I've created chocolates for people with no will power. 'Before Eight' mints ------------------------------------------------------------I am so unlucky. I swear that if Dolly Parton had triplets ( and I was one of them ) I'd be the one on the bottle.

Jokes h a ha :) A man walks into a bar and notices two pieces of beef nailed to the ceiling. He asks the barman why they’re there. “It’s a competition. If you can climb up there and get those bits of meat down you’ll get free drinks all night. But if you try and fail then you’ll have to buy a round for everyone in the pub. Do you fancy having a go?” The man has a long, hard look at the ceiling before saying, “No, I’ll just have a pint thanks. The steaks are too high.” ------------------------------------------------------------Oh my god! Just heard Currys are doing "shop soiled" 60" 4K TVs for £99! Slight fault with the volume controls but at that price you can't turn them down. ------------------------------------------------------------Just got a job as a church bell ringer. It's my first day so they're just showing me the ropes. ------------------------------------------------------------I've been having real problems with nuisance phone calls lately...... The most common one seems to be ......"You said you'd be home from the pub three f*****g hours ago!" ------------------------------------------------------------My budgie broke his leg today so I made him a little splint out of a couple of matches.....his little face lit up when he tried to walk. ------------------------------------------------------------A lorry-load of tortoises crashed into a trainload of terrapins, I thought 'That's a turtle disaster'. ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy takes two stuffed dogs on to the Antique Roadshow. "Ohh," said the presenter, "This is a very rare set, produced by the celebrated Johns Brothers Taxidermists who operated in London at the turn of the 19th century. Do you have any idea what they would fetch if they were in good condition?" "Sticks!" Paddy replied. ------------------------------------------------------------Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool. I gave him a glass of water.

A middle-aged woman seemed sheepish as she visited her gynaecologist. "Come now," coaxed the doctor, "you've been seeing me for years. There's nothing you can't tell me." "This one's kind of strange," the woman said. "Let me be the judge of that," the doctor replied. "Well," she said, "yesterday I went to the bathroom in the morning and heard a plink-plinkplink in the toilet. When I looked down, the water was full of pennies." "I see," commented the doctor calmly. "That afternoon, I went to the bathroom again and, plink-plink-plink, there were 5p pieces in the bowl," the woman continued. "That night," she went on, "I went again, and plink-plink-plink, there were 50p's. This morning, there were £1 coins!" "You've got to tell me what's wrong with me!" she implored. "I'm scared out of my wits!" The gynecologist put a comforting hand on her shoulder. "There, there, it's nothing to be scared about," he said. "You're simply going through the change!" ------------------------------------------------------------I've got a new job as a scientist researching bestiality between humans and dogs. If anyone needs me I'll be in my lab. ------------------------------------------------------------My wife brought home a tub of ice cream and asked if I wanted some. "How hard is it?" I asked. She cheekily replied, "As hard as your d*** when you're thinking about me naked!". I said "Go on then, pour me a glass!! ------------------------------------------------------------I was fed up with trick or treaters so this year I turned all the lights off and went to bed. The ships can bugger off, my lighthouse, my rules -----------------------------------------------------------I was taking the piss out of a bloke wearing a ridiculous wig today. He had the last laugh though. Sentenced me to three years.
