If you’re looking for somewhere to spend the day with your family this summer then I’d recommend the La Concepcion Botanical Gardens, close to Malaga City. I spent some time there recently with Kami, Tony and family, who many of you will know from their roles running this magazine. If you’re a tree fan you’ll be in your element, but those who prefer flowers may feel slightly disappointed, as trees definitely rule the roost! There’s even a special section called ‘Around The World in 80 Trees’ featuring 80 trees from across the globe. If you actually stop at each tree and study it, then you can see how they look different from ordinary trees. I was certainly in my element at the gardens, mainly because of the abundance of frogs. I make no secret of the fact that I simply ADORE frogs. Not in the way that I’d like to plant wet ones on their cheeks (although if they turned into handsome princes I might consider it….), but simply to watch them be. They jump around from lily pad to pond without a care in the world…what a life hey?! The froggys were also the highlight of the day for my two nieces, Charli and Leoni. They loved playing ‘spot the frog’ then throwing small twigs their way to scare them into jumping (teehee!) Our little clan involved five adults, two children, a buggy and a wheelchair. This meant we could only stick to certain areas and we couldn’t go gallivanting beyond the trees, or up steep hills. But the children had great fun riding on the back of the wheelchair while Daddy pushed them along, and the buggy proved a great storage system for heavy bags. We visited the gardens on an especially hot day so the sprinkler water system proved a real treat

From The Ed (cont)

as we all ran through it to cool down…and there were plenty of stray lemons to quench our thirsts! But the best part of all was when we saw a tree dedicated to this magazine. Yes, the centinela tree’, which towered above most of the other trees in the gardens. It’s ashame they mis-spelt it, but hey, it’s the thought that counts! Why not see if you can spot it if you get the chance to visit La Concepcion?

It’s also worth noting that there are picnic benches in the gardens and a delightful café serving drinks, snacks and a selection of light meals. There’s also a gift shop, where you can purchase cute little memories of your day. For more info including directions visit their website at,call 952 252 148, or see advert on page 63.

Strange News Fan puts his house on England A football fan from Bristol has gone further than most to show his support for England's World Cup bid. Lee Bray, 34, of Knowle West, decided that replica shirts and car flags just weren't enough. So he commissioned two graffiti artists, Stae and Cheo, to cover the front of his house in a giant World Cup mural. He said: "People are coming from all over Bristol to take photos of the house. I really believe England can go all the way and win in South Africa." Condiment vandal, 74, arrested A 74-year-old woman has been arrested by US police in their search for a vandal who has been pouring condiments into a drop box at a local library. Police say Joy Cassidy is suspected of causing thousands of dollars in damage to library books with liquids including ketchup, corn syrup and mayonnaise. She was caught after allegedly dropping an open jar of mayonnaise into the drop box outside Ada County Library in Boise. Police say 10 similar acts of vandalism have been committed at the library in little more than a year. Heads up! Airport workers who noticed a package was not labelled properly were shocked to discover a shipment of 40 to 60 human heads. Employees at Southwest Airlines discovered the clumsily duct-taped containers of heads in Little Rock, Arkansas. After they reported their grim discovery to police, the heads were turned over to the local coroner. Further investigation revealed the heads were being shipped to be used by neurosurgeons to study ear, nose and throat procedures. The heads were on their way to medical company Medtronic Inc in Fort Worth, Texas, which had ordered them for research.

Kitchen Wisdom Some great kitchen facts and then Sentinella´s view on these ! 


Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of an ice cream cone to prevent ice cream drips. We say... Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake! You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway! To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes. We say... Buy Smash mashed potato mix. Keeps in the pantry for up to a year. When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake. We say... Go to the bakery! Hell, they'll even decorate it for you! ... If you accidentally over-salt a dish while

it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant 'fix-me-up.' We say... If you over-salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad. Please recite with me the real woman's motto: 'I made it, you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes!' Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks. We say... Whats celery? Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away. We say.. Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink! All your pains go away! Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces. We say.. Leftover Wine????? HELLO!!!!!!!

Good Old British Humor! Complaints from Council House Owners. These are genuine clips from council (UK) complaint letters: 1. My bush is really overgrown round the front and my back passage has fungus growing in it. 2. He's got this huge tool that vibrates the whole house and I just can't take it anymore. 3. It's the dogs' mess that I find hard to swallow. 4. I want some repairs done to my cooker as it has backfired and burnt my knob off. 5. And their 18-year-old son is continually banging his balls against my fence. 6. I wish to report that tiles are missing from the outside toilet roof. I think it was bad wind the other night that blew them off.

7. My lavatory seat is cracked, where do I stand? 8. I am writing on behalf of my sink, which is coming away from the wall. 9. Will you please send someone to mend the garden path? My wife tripped and fell on it, yesterday, and now she is pregnant 10. I request permission to remove my drawers in the kitchen. 11. 50% of the walls are damp, 50% have crumbling plaster and 50% are plain filthy. 12. The toilet is blocked and we cannot bath the children until it is cleared. 13. Our lavatory seat is broken in half and is now in three pieces. 14. This is to let you know that our lavatory seat is broke and we can't get BBC 2.

Linea Directa Who can drive my car? Many drivers often ask themselves who exactly can drive their car if their motor insurance is only in their name. The answer to this question depends on which company you are covered with as not all insurers will cover you if an accident occurs when another person other than the policy holder is driving the car. In fact, many insurance companies only cover those that are stipulated in the policy or “Certificate of Motor Insurance”. Thus, if anyone else is driving your vehicle such as members of your family or even your partner or spouse, both they and you need to be aware that they may not be covered in the event of an accident. However, if you have motor insurance with Línea Directa, any person that you have given permission to drive your car (regardless of whether they are a named-driver on your policy or not) can be safe in the knowledge that they will be covered for any eventuality. Nevertheless, as with all policies, there are some exceptions. Anyone driving your car must be at least 26 years of age and hold a valid driving licence that permits them to drive legally here in Spain. Unlike with other insurers, Línea Directa policy holders also need not worry about how many years the driver that is using their car has been a licence holder. In the same manner, they also need not worry about a collision caused by this person (who is not a named-driver on the policy), as Línea Directa will still cover any damage regardless of who was driving the vehicle at the time. What’s more, these benefits are available with both third party liability and fully comprehensive car insur-

ance. In the case of an accident, the car would be covered as if you, the policy holder, were driving it. And once again, the only exception is that any driver under 26 years of age must be stipulated under the “Special Conditions” section. Drivers of this age and younger, however, can still obtain car insurance with Línea Directa Aseguradora, which has a specialised department that deals with younger drivers, their questions and doubts. They too can purchase a motor insurance policy that is tailored to their needs – and again, at fantastic prices that are amongst the best on the market. Without a doubt, Spain’s largest direct line insurance provider, Línea Directa, offers an unparalleled service to all of its customers regardless of age or nationality – and offers cover at really unbeatable prices. It is also particularly committed to offering an excellent service to its expatriate customers by not only providing ALL documentation and services in English, but its highly trained team of professionals are always available to carry out all procedures as smoothly and as quickly as possible. To find out more about Línea Directa and its comprehensive and very competitive motor insurance policies, call 902 123 104.

De Cotta Long Term Lets by Rob Westwater, Lawyer, De Cotta McKenna y Santafé In the current economic climate and the unfavourable GBP/€ exchange rate, more people are considering renting their Spanish property to generate additional income and to make better use of their Spanish asset. While this may be a sensible option for many, there are a number of important legal issues a prospective landlord must be aware of before committing to a long term let. Overview: In Spain, landlord and tenant law overwhelmingly favours the tenant. For example, a tenant renting a property as his “sole residence” on a 12 month lease has the right to extend the lease for a further four annual periods. Consequently, the 1 year lease can give rise to a right to remain in the property for five years. It should also be noted that the extent of the protections afforded to a tenant will arise on whether or not he satisfies the “sole residence” test and not the length of the lease itself. In addition, eviction proceedings can be slow and expensive. Assuming the landlord has the right to evict a tenant, a period of 12 months or more is not uncommon before the proceedings are dealt with. Potential landlords must also bear in mind that the combination of tenant rights and a slow judicial process for eviction (if applicable) may delay or even prevent a sale to a third party in the future. The rental contract: Always ensure that the rental contract is drawn up by a competent lawyer. The contract will always include the following information: the parties’ details; property details; agreed rent; when rent is to be paid and to whom; amount of deposit; etc. Typically, the deposit is 1-2 months rent and will be held by the landlord. To assure payment of the rent, the landlord should also include a requirement that the tenant obtain an “aval” or bank guarantee. A comprehensive inventory should be attached to the contract and signed by the parties with a specific clause within the contract requiring payment by the tenant for any damage (not including normal wear and tear) to the specified items or allowing the landlord to deduct such payment from the deposit. Due to the “tenant friendly” nature of the law, you

should insist on proper references and follow these up. There are also a number of specific drafting measures which can be taken to help improve the position of landlords. These include reducing the length of the contract, obtaining undertakings from the tenant regarding the length of his intention to stay at the property and confirmation that this is not his sole residence. While the extent and applicability of these and other provisions will differ from case to case, there is no ability to exclude the statutory protections afforded to tenants. Eviction and non-payment of rent: If a tenant refuses to pay the rent, getting them to pay or getting them out can be a costly process. The claim to the court is for payment of outstanding rent and eviction due to the non-payment. However, if the tenant pays all outstanding amounts owed (including costs), then he will have the right to remain in the property with the applicable legal rights and protections. If payment is not made, the court will order his eviction. See main advert below.

Boat Trips This Summer Why not enjoy the relaxing sounds and sights of the sea this summer and take a boat trip with friends or family? The beautiful coastline of La Herradura boasts one of the prettiest bays in Europe, a truly perfect setting to lie on the deck with a cold drink and soak up the sun. Paul and Tony offer luxurious days out on either their 12 metre Motor Cruiser, or their water sports speedboat. The Motor Cruiser is moored at the small and idyllic Marina del Este. Relax in style as you sip Cava (included in the price), swim, snorkel, sun bathe in one of the sheltered coves along the beautiful stretch of coastline from Nerja to AlmuĂąecar, or even engage in a spot of dolphin-watching! "We see many dolphins on our excursions," said Tony. "On one occasion the dolphins jumped around for an hour or so, riding the bow of the boat. It was the most amazing display." The Motor Cruiser has sun decks on the bow, shaded areas to keep out of the sun and WC facilities. Paul and Tony's Sports Boat is eight metres long, with skiing, wake boarding, rings, etc. Tony has all the knowledge to teach, including children who are learning to waterski for the first time. The Sports Boat is moored in Torrox Costa and they are able to pick up clients at many locations on the way.

"We have many satisfied customers who say that their days boating are the best days of their holiday," said Paul. "If the weather is bad, or the wind is too high, we'll not go out, as the day can be ruined and we'd rather reschedule. We pride ourselves on making the day enjoyable but safe.� Life jackets are provided as a safety measure on both boats. Call Paul on 672 042 131, or Tony on 616 034 846 and they'll accommodate most requirements and negotiate rates flexible with your needs.

Obituary - LORD BENSONS “I havent known Trevor long, perhaps six months or so, since he started advertising in The Sentinella magazine and every month we would go through his advert for the forthcoming month. Now I am no great football fan at all, in fact I have been known to be a total embarrassment when I thought I would take an interest and ask "who is winning, Tottenham or Spurs!?" so you can imagine each month how useless I was going through all the football fixtures that were to be included in the advert with him, it wasnt my greatest subject but hey thanks to Trevor I am a little more clued up on this football lark! Obviously you get to know advertisers a little better each time you see them and Trevor and Karen have always been very welcoming to me and it was with great sadness when I first heard Trevor was in hospital and even more so to discover he had passed away. So on a personal note I would like to pass on all my best wishes to Karen and Billy and from everyone at The Sentinella our thoughts are with you�. Michelle r.i.P x

La Vaqueria

I feel completely exhausted, with just one hour to go until the magazine deadline. I'm typing away whilst trying to convince myself that impossible deadlines are good for you and help you work better under pressure… sound familiar? Ok, a different scenario maybe, but anyone who has tried to “get on” in life will have experienced similar moments.

There are always going to be ups and downs when trying to run your own business. For me running an arty business is mostly up, so it came as a bit of a shock this morning when I realised the words, “laundering” and “pressing” were being directed at me! Once I had ascertained that the correct translation is indeed, “washing” and “ironing” and that I needed to do it, running my own business lost some of its former luster. Not that we at La Vaqueria are slobs or anything, we had just presumed that these archaic customs had long since been abandoned! So, after making several families of large spider homeless when the correct tools of the trade were located, a wonderful collection of embroidery, crochet and lace was duly pressed and made presentable for viewing at our Summer Craft Day last month. As I got into my stroke I could truly appreciate the time, effort and patience previous generations of women had taken in order to make their homes as presentable as possible. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who helped

and supported this event; the council, the visitors, the stall holders, exhibitors and demonstrators. By the way, the spiders have moved back into the ironing board for the summer until October when we have the Autumn Craft Day. Do you remember back ten years ago when none of us had mobile phones? It's hard to imagine now when we are encouraged to believe that we could not possibly manage without one. Well, perhaps we should. It is handy to be able to get hold of the kids, but is this sufficient to subject ourselves to continuous barraging from the phone companies with the latest deal that we shouldn't be without? Lovely people call you up (usually when you have just started tea or put your feet up for a snooze). You can hear their smile over the airwaves as they lull you into a false sense of security, gently prising one little word out of you, and before you know it, you have a phone contract for you said “yes” on a recorded call. And that, my friend, is all it takes. You are then subjected to a verbal grilling as all of your personal details are extracted with speed and precision and before you know it "Gracias, Thank you, Adios, Goodbye." Simple as that, like sharks circling their prey, followed by that fatal strike; predators moving in for the kill, preying on any unsuspecting victim who was daft enough to answer their phone! At La Vaqueria we always have people popping in with papers they don’t understand, which more often than not can be sorted out quite simply. Even more worrying though is the increasing number of visitors who have unwittingly signed up for a phone contract which they are unable to stop. If you find yourself in a similar situation and you are visiting the shop, please feel free to ask for help. We will if we can. This month sees the return of the very popular SUNDAY BRUNCH. Please call and reserve your table. I hope to see you all this summer!

Book Excerpt Sol Searching – A Fun-Filled Tale of a Modern Girl’s Move to the Costa del Sol – tells of Keidi Keating’s quest to make friends, meet the man of her dreams and find a job (starting this wonderful magazine)! Taken from the chapter entitled ‘Magic In The Air’ From a spiritual point of view, they say if you create a space in one part of your life, it’s automatically filled with something else. The day after the deal was settled with my sister about moving to Spain and taking over The Sentinella, Chema asked me out again. He worked in a Hotel in Torremolinos and had been given two free tickets to a magic show. We arranged to meet at Málaga bus station. As the bus pulled in, I scanned the people scattered outside. He had described himself as ‘tall’, apparently that was all I would need to identify him. I could vaguely make out a towering guy through the window. Two months of chatting on messenger and finally we were meeting in

real life. My insides were on fire. “Hello, Keidi?” said the man, with a sexy Spanish accent. “Yes” I said, relieved that the conversation had commenced in English. I hoped it continued that way. “I’m Chema” he said smiling. His face seemed warm and friendly; familiar even. “I’ve parked nearby,” he said, leading me to a silver Ford Focus. The awkwardness I felt as I climbed into the passenger seat vanished after a few minutes. In fact I felt strangely relaxed around this man. He exuded a calm, gentle aura, which I plugged into. It contrasted nicely with my over-active mind and busy nature. Sol Searching can be purchased online via or It is also available from The Sentinella stall at the Tuesday Country Farmer’s Market, and

from Arkwrights in Puente don Manuel. See Keidi’s Sol Searching blog:

Random Jokes An Irishman was terribly overweight, so his doctor put him on a diet. 'I want you to eat regularly for 2 days, then skip a day, then eat regularly again for 2 days then skip a day...... and repeat this procedure for 2 weeks. 'The next time I see you, you should have lost at least 5 pounds.' When the Irishman returned, he shocked the doctor by having lost nearly 60lbs! 'Why, that's amazing!' the doctor said, 'Did you follow my instructions?' The Irishman nodded... 'I'll tell you though, by jaesuz, I t'aut I were going to drop dead on dat 3rd day.' 'From the hunger, you mean?' asked the doctor. 'No, from the f**kin' skippin'!! ------------------------------------------------------A farmer in Devon has made history by growing a field of dildos! Unfortunately he's had a lot of trouble with women squatters. ------------------------------------------------------Hot and cold sex After his examination, the doctor said to the elderly man, "You appear to be in good health. Do you have any medical concerns you would like to ask me about?" "In fact, I do." said the old man. "After I have sex, I am usually cold and chilly; and then, after I have sex with her the second time, I am usually hot and sweaty." After examining his elderly wife, the doctor

said, "Everything appears to be fine. Do you have any medical concerns that you would like to discuss with me?" The lady replied that she had no questions or concerns. The doctor then said to her, "Your husband had an unusual concern. He claims that he is usually cold and chilly after having sex with you the first time; and then hot and sweaty after the second time. Do you know why?" "Oh, that crazy old fart!" she replied. "That's because the first time is in January, and the second time is in August”. ------------------------------------------------------Most of you have heard of a small surgical procedure called a butt lift. I wanted to show you how it turns out. Please, refrain from getting this procedure.

Arkwrights - The British Store

Computer Repair

Arkwright's Fifth Anniversary Celebration was a great success as always.

With so many people experiencing computer problems here in Spain, I thought this was very apt!

Geoff and Linda, who run the very popular Arkwrights British Store in Puente Don Manuel were generous hosts; with a fantastic buffet, great raffle prizes and free flowing wine as a thankyou for loyal customers. Robin George (from Phil Lynott and Thin Lizzy, Roy Wood, Robert Plant etc.) was a special guest, signing albums and donating raffle prizes in aid of worthy local charities. He revealed that he's just released a new single Back to the Sun with new super band, LovePower and it's no.1 in the audio candy charts! An occasion to remember!

Magdalena – Sponge cakes, which can be picked up by the bagful in the supermarkets. You can also buy them at the local panaderia (bakery). I find them a little dry, but they’re nice when dipped in tea, or hot chocolate if you’re feeling really naughty! Mahonesa – This is mayonnaise and I like to dip chips in it, rather than eat them with ketchup or smothered in salt. Be careful with mayonnaise in Spain though – if you leave it sitting in the sun for any length of time it can go off very quickly!

Mantequilla – This is one of the first Spanish words I learnt. I was in a restaurant and wanted some butter to eat with some overly dry bread. I looked it up in my pocket dictionary and voila! Mariscos – This is seafood such as prawns, muscles, clams and the like. I love a good sopa de mariscos as a starter. Miel – Clue: What the bees make…Yeah, honey! A spoonful of high quality locally made honey helps allergy sufferers. Try it and see! Migas de pan – These are breadcrumbs. In many Spanish restaurants you may also see ‘Migas’ on the menu. It’s chorizo and black pudding covered with breadcrumbs and sometimes an additional ingredient or two! Morcilla – Black pudding, or pig’s blood…and totally vile. Someone pass me the sick bucket!

LT Construction I was growing a little bored with my old advert, as I’m sure many of my clients were, so I thought it was time to update it to reflect the changes in our in-house expertise and the market in general. It seemed apparent that many of the General Public were confused as to what a Landscaper does. This isn’t helped by the fact that a lot of jobbing gardeners advertise themselves as ‘Landscapers’. A comment by some people in the past has been, “I didn’t know you did building work”, which left me feeling a little surprised! My house is situated north of the lake at La Viñuela. Most of the houses surrounding mine have been affected this winter by slipped banks, collapsed retaining walls and in the worst case, the whole house moved. The fact that my house and land has not moved is no accident!¡ A ‘Landscape Gardener’ covers many disciplines, starting from a consultation with the client to obtain the basic idea of the project, moving on to the design stage, project management and project completion.

The projects normally start with the hard landscaping. This can cover many different building requirements, from retaining walls, drainage, driveways, terracing, patios, stairs, pergolas, garages and casitas. This stage can often involve electrics as well as pumping for septic tanks, water deposits and irrigation systems. The final stage is the soft landscaping, i.e. planting. There is less of a need for this now, as most of the houses in our area have mature gardens. The benefit of using a true Landscaper over a General Builder is that we come from a design background, as well as having an understanding of how the land is structured. The aesthetics of the house and garden are taken into consideration as well as best practice in regard to building specifications. The emphasis with my business now is more towards construction, as this is the area for which I receive the majority of enquiries. Please contact me if you would like to discuss any of the above or visit our new website for additional information.

Geckos are small lizards. Most grow to be only 4-6 inches long. Their tail is one half of their length. They legs stick out of their sides, which keeps their bellies close to the ground. There are over 800 different kinds of geckos. They live on every continent except Antarctica where it is too cold for them. They have claws and sticky toe pads similar to velcro that allow them to run quickly across ceilings and glass windows with ease.

Geckos are considered to be good luck in Hawaii. Geckos are carnivores. They east small insects. After a gecko eats, it cleans its mouth with its tongue. Geckos even clean their eyes with their tongue! A gecko can detach its tail if caught by a predator, and can grow a new tail later. Geckos are native to parts of Europe, Africa and Asia, but spread all over the world when humans accidentally carried them along with cargo in ships.

Amazing Animals (Continued) Female geckos can lay too soft-shell eggs every six weeks. It takes about 45-60 days for a gecko to hatch from its egg and a year to be fully grown. Geckos are the only lizards that have a voice. Some geckos make a clicking noise that sounds like they’re saying ‘geckoo’ that’s how they got their name. Geckos also make a tiny squeaking sound, stand tall, wave their tails over their backs and push up and down when frightened.

Botanical Gardens Malaga La Concepción 1855-1990 The origins of La Concepción can be traced back to the merging of several estates located to the north of the city of Malaga. These were home to olive and almond trees and possibly vines, though the citrus trees were the most numerous. The gardens’ creators were Jorge Loring Oyarzabal and Amalia Heredia Livermore, who purchased the land on which they stand in about 1855. According to written records at the time, they had originally come up with the idea of a garden seven years earlier while on their honeymoon, which saw them embark upon on a tour of Europe. The Marquis and Marchioness’ comfortable economic situation coupled with their first-hand experience of some of Europe’s finest gardens and their commercial dealings abroad enabled them to cultivate the most exotic of plant species from around the world. In order to ensure that their dream came to fruition, they enlisted the services of a French gardener, Chamousst, who selected and planted the gardens’ flora, an endeavour for which he was awarded a number of prizes, as witnessed by newspaper reports of the late XIX century. La Concepción quickly earned itself a fine reputation throughout Europe, though not for its exuberantly beautiful gardens; the source of this renown was in fact the magnificent collection of archaeological remains on display in the Loring Museum, a small, Doric-style building erected on the site of a Roman mosaic discovered in Cartama depicting the feats of Hercules For many years, the Lorings strove to restore all of the archaeological remains that they encountered. Without doubt, the most significant of these was the Lex Flavia Malacitana, a bronze piece bearing the Roman laws that governed Malaga in the year 80 AD which now resides in the National Archaeology Museum. Following the death of its owners and the family’s economic decline, La Concepción was bought in 1911 by a married couple from Bilbao, the Echevarria-Echevarrietas, who extended the gardens by creating a number of new areas. 1990-2006 In 1990, the entire estate (a total of 49 hectares, taking into account the historical garden plus the surrounding agricultural and forest land) was pur-

chased by Malaga City Council for 600 million pesetas (€3,606,073). In 1991, the “City of Malaga” Municipal Botanical Trust was founded to run and administer the estate. The construction of El Limonero reservoir saw these 49 hectares of land divided into two sections by a road: 26 of these were declared green belt, with the remaining 23 enclosed hectares making up La Concepción Historical-Botanical Gardens. Once the necessary infrastructure and upgrading work had been carried out, it was opened to the public in 1994 with two main aims: the conservation and improvement of the historical garden and the creation on the estate of a botanical garden (a cultural, educational and scientific centre connected with the world of plants with the majority of its species on display in living collections). Historical heritage In addition to its botanical riches, La Concepción boasts an equally significant historical heritage. In the XIX century, La Concepción served as a meeting point for a whole host of illustrious figures of the time. Politicians, artists, aristocrats and the noble Malaga bourgeoisie all frequented its gardens. As a result, a number of distinguished buildings were erected here: the magnificent Stately Home, the cypress house, the administrator’s house, the gardener’s hut and the schoolhouse; two iron greenhouses; a large arbour; fountains, footbridges, flights of steps, a delightful viewpoint, and, most impressive of all, the Loring Museum, a small, Doric-style building which housed the archaeological discoveries unearthed in the excavations financed by the estate’s first owners. Some of these archaeological pieces are on display around the museum, having recently been relocated as part of a project by the architect Jose Fernandez Oyarzabal. See main advert opposite

Film iew n Rev Legio "Legion" is the latest of a series of Hollywood films released of late about the apocalypse. In this version the villa in is no less than God! The last time He got seriously annoyed with us, he sent a flood. Now he has dispatched a legion of not too clever zombies. Attempting to thwart His plans is angel Michael, who has determined that mankind's sole hope for salvation is a new messiah, the unborn child of a pregnant waitress at a remote roadside diner.

Huddled inside this diner are the gruff cafe owner, his mechanic son, a no-nonsense cook, an upscale couple whose car has broken down, their rebellious teen daughter and a stranger with a gun. The first indication that something is wrong comes in the form of a sweet old lady, who suddenly transforms into a throat-chomping monster. This leads to periodic attacks by hordes of similarly possessed figures, including an ice creamtruck driver with elongated limbs and a little boy. Eventually, it leads to a showdown between Michael and the angel Gabriel, the latter wielding a pair of metallic wings come bullet deflectors come lethal daggers. The goings-on in "Legion" are seriously silly, but director Scott Stewart has provided enough stylish finesse to make the proceedings a real hoot. Star Rating - ****/***** (4 out of 5) MIXERS

Readers Writes - BEWARE! Barcelona Pick pocketing - The infamous Bird Poo Scam While crossing Mallorca Street at Napols, in Barcelona we were splashed with a liquid that looked and smelled like bird poo. A man in his 20’s, walking behind us, said he had witnessed a bird flying over. He offered to go to his apartment & get us water. We stood in what we thought to be the lobby of his apartment (he had a key to the building) while he helped us clean. We then took a cab back to our hotel, only to find that we had no money to pay the driver—we had been cleaned of our money and credit cards by that helpful guy. The next day, we went back to the same area and met 4 people who had just been robbed in the similar manner. This time, the robber was on a motorcycle. He, too, offered them water for cleaning, entered a different building with a key and helped them clean. Between the 6 of us, we lost almost 1,000 Euros, plus credit cards and other ID. The Barcelona police weren't interested in investigating these crimes. Even though we had excellent details, addresses and descriptions to report to the police, they couldn’t be bothered investigating. These thieves are very accomplished and the scam is designed for robbing couples. Tourists beware Barcelona is fraught with crime and the police are of no help. ------------------------------------------------------Closer to home... My wife has just had her hand bag stolen in SuperSol Car Park in Torre Del Mar. Look out for anyone or as in this case a guy in a dark blue Astra using the usual ploy of: - “Excuse me! Do you know the way to (somewhere??)” in Spanish which of course takes most English off guard and then repeats it in English (As if he didn't already know) and of course while distracted and being typically English (friendly and helpful) the accomplice opens your passenger door and goodbye hand bag with your whole life and more in it!! So look out girls don't be caught off guard! You have been warned!!!!

3D Television The most asked question at the moment is when can I get a 3D television? It is not an easy answer as there are still many problems to be solved. First of all, as far as my research into the industry is concerned, there are at least 5 differing standards. This could lead to some major headaches. Remember the old Betamax and VHS standards for Videos and the CD versus the Mini disc as examples. I think we should all be a little patient to see which way the industry will go. Also all the systems produced require the wearing of glasses and they can be as much as 120 pounds a pair (Sony). Imagine putting the kettle on during the break and falling over the dog with them on. Next the problem is broadcasts of TV with 3D content. I know of one current broadcast and there are proposals for test broadcasts by some companies. It may be as long as 10 to 15 years before we see regular programming. Some manufacturers are hedging their bets by producing TV sets that are 3D ready, but beware of the way the industry follows standards and take some advice

before buying. what is the latest in tVs? Well the new thing is Liquid Crystal Display screens (LCD) backlit with Light Emitting Diodes (LED). These make the screens super thin and an advanced technology uses Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED). This tends to brighten colours and reduce power consumption. Most modern TVs use about a tenth of the power of an old Cathode ray tube. Some other breaking news, for those of you interested in Spanish TV. Now that this network is all Digital, there have been licence applications in Southern Spain for an additional 78, yes I did say 78 new channels. If these are all given the go ahead there will be a great deal to watch. 7 of these will be Sports channels. Later this year the broadcasts go interactive and HD and if you have the right TV you can even change the language of the programmes. If you are interested in seeing any new product working, why not attend one of our weekly free demonstrations and talk about it. See main advert below

Master Craft S.L.

Master Craft S.L. introduce SUNVENTIC To the Spanish market A Solar-cell fan system Ideal for holiday homes or apartments good ventilation is important for your health Dampness and bad smells are neither good for you, nor your house, but both things are inevitable. Steam from baths and showers and cooking smells are always there. Furthermore, dust and tobacco smoke attaches to both furniture and walls. Holiday homes, which are left empty for periods of time, also suffer from the effects of damp and mould. But the most serious problem is that many people can become ill when the quality of the air decreases. Mould develops easily in damp houses, which is a great problem for the unfortunate and growing number of allergic people. Do you really want to come on holiday, then have to clean and re-paint the interior of your house every year? Environmentally friendly – the sun is the only source of power! Sunventic fans have the sun as the only source of power, therefore it runs extremely quietly. Environmentally-friendly, the fan can work every day, all year round, at no cost. With a Sunventic fan your house is constantly ventilated, even when you're not there.

you can do the installation easily by yourself Sunventic fans are easy to install. You can easily install them yourself by using existing ventilation openings. No electrical connections are needed.

Schizophrenia - The Split View The illness schizophrenia has such a difficult, misleading and frightening name that it does not do justice to the condition. Rather than encouraging people to try to understand the illness, the very word puts people’s backs up straight away. Its Greek language roots – ‘schizo’ [split] and ‘phrene’ [mind] – were not chosen in 1911 to mean ‘split personality’, as many people think. The word was ill-advisedly coined to refer to the fragmented thinking of sufferers. In a new book Avoiding the Inevitable, Nerja author Sheila Beacham pens a guide to the illness. It aims to dismiss the myths surrounding schizophrenia, those of dual personalities, good and murderous evil, as portrayed in so many films. Says Shelia: “Schizophrenia is a very misunderstood illness and the very word fills people with unnecessary horror. In my book I have tried, in an easy way, to educate both those involved with a schizophrenic patient and the public generally, about exactly what schizophrenia is really like. It is purposely a short book so that

readers do not get tired of reading it. I have included the actual thoughts of somebody suffering from the illness so the situation is known from the inside as well as from outside. Chapters include one for the immediate family of a patient, signs and symptoms, treatment, research, and a history of schizophrenia. At the end of the book there are useful addresses and a list of well known schizophrenia sufferers, to put a face to the condition.” Avoiding the Inevitable, a Guide to Modern Schizophrenia is published next month by Pen Press ( and advanced copies can be pre-ordered on Sheila Beecham is the author of 8 books, including the popular local novel Andalucian Oasis. Sheila will be holding an exhibition of her books, together with her husband Brian Beecham’s photographs, at Cafeteria Manon, Opposite Hotel Monica, Playa Torecilla, Nerja from Monday 5th July for two weeks. Check local notice boards for times when Sheila will be available to sign copies and talk about all her books.

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 New Alphabet: 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'm left here 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!

5 Nuns In A Bar

Essex Girl

Sisters Mary Catherine, Maria Theresa, Katherine Marie, Rose Frances, & Mary Kathleen left the Convent on a trip to St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City and were sight-seeing on a Tuesday in July. It was hot and humid in town and their traditional garb was making them so uncomfortable, they decided to stop in at Patty McGuire's Pub for a cold soft drink.. Patty had recently added special legs to his barstools, which were the talk of the fashionable eastside neighborhood. All 5 Nuns sat up at the bar and were enjoying their Cokes when Monsignor Riley and Father McGinty entered the bar through the front door. They, too, came for a cold drink when they were shocked and almost fainted at what they saw...

Sorry girls!!

Mind, Body, Spirit This month I’d like to address a subject that has very probably touched the lives of all our readers in some way, either personally or through a relative, friend or loved one: Cancer. Despite tremendous advances in screening and early diagnosis, Cancer is still one of the largest single causes of mortality. Some types of cancer are increasing and a diagnosis is still widely perceived as a death sentence. Recently I received an email containing a one-line prayer and the request to pass it on. It read: "Dear God. I pray for the cure of cancer. Amen.” Of course the subtext of the prayer is: “Cancer is still incurable, so all we can do is pray”. Whilst I would never underestimate the power of prayer, I have to say that this is a dour message to pass on, offering little in the way of hope or comfort to anyone afflicted with this disease. THERE ALREADY IS A CURE FOR CANCER! Actually, there are tens of thousands, if not millions of cures for cancer. Its generic name is: "The power of Human Beings to heal themselves," while its specific names are the names of all those inspiring souls who have claimed that power and through whatever means, have healed themselves of cancer. Perhaps you personally know such a person, maybe more than one. The alternative/holistic shelves of our bookstores carry dozens of books written by and about such people and the means by which they have healed themselves, some are even written by medical practitioners! In my 25 years as a professional healer I have been privileged to assist in and facilitate many such healings. For treatment to be successful, early diagnosis is extremely advantageous, giving the person time to address the underlying causes. The first

priority in a holistic approach is alleviation of the stress which has caused the body's immune system to malfunction allowing cancerous cells to develop undetected and unchecked. Nutrition & lifestyle play a big part too. Whilst surgery and chemotherapy are options, there are other less aggressive curative agents which can be effective in halting and reversing the proliferation of metastasising cells without noxious side effects. From a Mind-Body perspective, a complete cure involves getting to the psycho-emotional roots of what may have caused the cancer in the first place – often years or even decades before its symptoms first appeared – and healing them. It is not my intention here to diminish the huge challenge laid down to those of us who have faced or are presently facing a diagnosis of cancer, nor to diminish the massive efforts of all those fighting cancer, by whatever means, in homes and hospitals around the world. Like many of you, I too have lost people near and dear to me and shared their heroic battle for life. But rather than a diagnosis of cancer being a death sentence, let it be an invitation to reclaim one's Life in the full sense of the word, and become a wiser and more empowered person as a result. Rather than meeting the shocking news with helplessness and prayers for a cure, BE the answer to the prayer! Read the countless inspiring accounts of those who have fought the battle and won, and believe…there can be a cure for cancer. Richard Waterborn is a professional healer. He recently healed my (Eds) under-active thryoid gland. To book a session call Richard on 676 346 402, or email with your questions.

s n g i S r Sta Capricorn - They say the best things in life are free, but this month you don't agree. You are quite prepared to wap your wad on the counter at any given opportunity. Lucky sign - grubby overalls Aquarius - Have you ever thought about giving up booze and fags and starting afresh? Well, now's the time to give your body a break from all that evil poison. Lucky sign - a puss in boots Pisces - What you need, Mr or Mrs Pisces, is a holiday – preferably somewhere as far away from here as possible. Pack your bags and book a flight. The Dominican Republic is nice at this time of the year. Lucky sign - an old lady carrying a small dog Aries - If you're happy and you know it clap your hands. I can hear all you Arians clapping from here. Ok, that's enough now! Lucky sign - a silken gown Taurus - All that glistens is not gold. Sometimes it is a diamond or other expensive jewel stone. This month you will be the receiver of one, but beware of the motive behind the generosity. Lucky sign - a weeping mozzie bite Gemini - If you are feeling more hot and bothered than usual it could be because you are confusing Spain with the UK. Those big woolly jumpers aren't so necessary here. Lucky sign - a postman with one leg Cancer - One potato, two potato, three po-

tato, four. Throughout November don't be alarmed if you develop a taste for spuds. It is because the planet Mercury has crossed paths with Pluto. Lucky sign - a dancing horse Leo - Good heavens above. Your lion like qualities are shining through a timid exterior to unveil a rather nasty side to your persona. You will end up with more enemies than friends at this rate. ROARRRR! Lucky sign - a lottery ticket with the winning numbers Virgo - It will be very lucky for you this month if you spend as much time as possible around cats. If you are allergic to them, then try dogs instead. Lucky sign - a scratched Bros single Libra - When was the last time you got stuck into a good book? Thought as much! Reading increases your intelligence so if I were you I'd start the pastime up again. Lucky sign - bananas in custard (finely sliced) Scorpio - If you are feeling bored this month dress from head to toe in your favourite colour and parade up and down the street singing I Should Be So Lucky. Don't ask why, just do it! Lucky sign - red is always a winner Sagittarius - My name is Michael Pain and I'm a nosy neighbour. Sound familiar? Put away those binoculars and telescopes or you'll get a name for yourself. You nosy parker! Lucky sign - an unstuffed teddy bear And if it´s your birthday this month.... It´s so much hotter in July!!!!

) : a h a h s e k o J A man walks into a restaurant with a fullgrown ostrich behind him. The waitress asks them for their orders. The man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke," and turns to the ostrich, "What's yours?" "I'll have the same," says the ostrich. A short time later the waitress returns with the bill. "That will be 9.40â‚Ź please." The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment. The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man says, "A hamburger, fries and a coke.." The ostrich says, "I'll have the same.." Again the man reaches into his pocket and pays with exact change. This becomes routine until the two enter again. "The usual?" asks the waitress. "No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato and a salad," says the man. "Same," says the ostrich. Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, "That will be 39.60â‚Ź." Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table. The waitress cannot hold back her curiosity any longer. "Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change in your pocket every time?" "Well," says the man, "Several years ago I was cleaning the attic and found an old lamp. When I rubbed it, a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there." "That's brilliant!" says the waitress.. "Most people would ask for a million euros or something, but you'll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!" "That's right. Whether it's a litre of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there," says the man..

The waitress asks, "What's with the ostrich?" The man sighs, pauses and answers, "My second wish was for a tall bird with a big butt and long legs who agrees with everything I say.." ------------------------------------------------------A country wife came home just in time to find her husband in bed with another woman. With super-human strength, borne of fury, and cutting firewood, lifting sacks of feed, and bales of hay, she dragged him down the stairs, out the back door, and into the barn. She put his manhood in a vice and then secured it tightly and removed the handle. Next she picked up an old carpenter's saw. The viced up cheater was terrified, and hollered, "Stop ! Stop ! You're not gonna cut it off with that rusty saw, are you?" The wife, with a gleam of revenge in her eye, put the saw in her husband's hand and said "Nope ....You are! I'm gonna burn down the Barn!!!" ------------------------------------------------------A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when the stranger turned to her and said, 'Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.' The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger, 'What would you like to talk about?' 'Oh, I don't know,' said the stranger. 'How about nuclear power?' and he smiles. 'OK,' she said. 'That could be an interesting topic, but first, let me ask you a question. . . A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?' 'Hmmm, I have no idea...' replies the stranger. To which the little girl replies, 'Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know s**t?
