Summer finally seems to have arrived, but not without some strange bouts of freak weather in the process. It’s the end of June right now and yet I’m still awaking to misty fogs hanging over the coast, often not shifting until well into the afternoon. But let’s hope and pray that summer is finally here to stay for at least the next three months. To take advantage of the recent sunny spells I’ve been spending at least three mornings a week soaking up the rays on El Morche beach. I’ve been thinking of moving a little way inland for some time now but I’m delaying it until the end of the summer so I can sneak in plenty more beach days! What I’m noticing right now as I muddle from day to day, is the amount of you who are experiencing great change in your lives; huge transformational change. At the time this can seem like the world around you is falling apart and the majority of us have the tendency to plunge into emotional turmoil, often growing depressed, frustrated and increasingly irritable. But the truth is that this change, this inner shift inside of you, which also resonates out to the external, is necessary in order to move you forward from where you are to where you’re meant to be. There are vast amounts of energy coming to planet earth at this time to help humanity heal our emotions, our past and stale ancestral energies which no longer serve us. This healing energy is in turn helping to heal Mother Earth of all the shocking things we, as a race, have done to harm her. So if you’re feeling emotionally raw at the moment, more tired than usual, or if you’ve been having powerful, unusually vivid dreams, then rest assured that everything is just as it’s meant to be. You, I, and every other soul in existence are a part of the energy of ‘all that is,’ so it’s only natural that we’ll feel

Strange News

the effects of the dramatic change that is currently occurring. My advice to you is to remain child-like – children have naturally open minds, often finding the humour and joy in new situations. Let’s learn from our children, share in their joy, take a step back and begin to feel the love all around, sharing it with others. If you can do that, you’ll move through the change effortlessly, reaping the newly sown benefits along the way. And one more piece of advice…sit down quietly on your most comfortable sofa, grab a cup of your favourite drink and read The Sentinella from cover to cover, remembering to stop and laugh at all those jokes as you go!

Horse In At The Deep End A horse had to be rescued from a swimming pool in Wels, Austria, after it bolted and fell in when his rider hopped off to answer a call of nature. It took 11 firefighters and wildlife experts more than an hour to haul the terrified stallion - called Coco - from the open air pool. "The horse wasn't tied up and he just took off. It crashed through a hedge and went head over hooves into the pool," explained one firefighter. "He was very frightened but just couldn't seem to haul himself out of there so we waited until he was calm and hauled him free," he said.

Editor (of the original little mag)! P.S. Why not consider a visit to the Mariposario, (the Butterfly House) in Benalmadena, if you get the chance?! It houses more than 1,500 varieties of butterflies which fly freely around you in a tropical environment. I’m planning a visit within the next couple of weeks, so I’ll report back in the August edition!

Charity Sofa Bonus The manager of a Warwickshire charity shop found almost £1,500 stuffed down the back of a donated sofa. Karen Wilson, of Rugby, discovered the money in an envelope between the cushions of a two-seater sofa. It contained £1,305 in bank notes but thankfully, relatives of the late owner of the sofa were traced thanks to a Gift Aid form they had filled in and were delighted to hear about the money. The family, who wished to remain anonymous, donated £100 to the British Heart Foundation as a goodwill gesture. Boy Sells Kidney On Internet A Chinese teenager sold one of his kidneys for just £2,000 so that he could buy the new iPad 2.The 17-year-old boy, identified only by his surname, Zheng, responded to an online advertisement offering cash to organ donors. "I wanted to buy an iPad 2, but I didn't have the money," the boy told Shenzhen TV in the southern province of Guangdong. "When I surfed the internet I found an advert posted online by an agent saying they were able to pay for a kidney." After negotiations, the kidney was removed at a local hospital but the boy, who suffered complications following the surgery, was unable to keep what he had done from his mother. Horrified, she took the son back to Chenzhou to report the crime to the police, but the mobiles of the three agents that Zheng had contacted were all switched off.

Kids On Love Tips on love by kids aged 5-10... when is it okay to kiss someone?  "You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own video recorder, because she'll want to have videos of the wedding." (Jim, 10) Concerning why love happens between two particular people: "No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deodorants are so popular." (Jan, 9) On what falling in love is like: "Like an avalanche where you have to run for your life." (roger, 9) Come & enjoy the tranquil & beautiful surroundings at “Oasis” - offering a selection of natural juices, exciting cocktails, smoothies & milkshakes. A wide selection of salads, snacks, pitta bread & dips, barbeque & bacon rolls.

"If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long." (Leo, 7) On the role of good looks in love: "It isn't always just how you look. Look at me, I'm handsome like anything and I haven't got anybody to marry me yet." (gary, 7) why lovers often hold hands: "They want to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good money for them." (Dave, 5) how to make love endure: "Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash." (randy, 8)

De Cotta SPANISH CRIMINAL PROCEEDINGS – THE DENUNCIA - Legal news from De Cotta Law Many of you will have been living in Spain for many years now and will know the word denuncia. Unfortunately it is often used inaccurately and made to sound as if the person who has been denounced is guilty of a crime. A denuncia is a private criminal allegation against an individual, company or other legal body. A denuncia can also be made and served on a person by the police, guardia civil or state authority. When the allegation is made the official drawing up the document - in most cases this is the local guardia civil – will only take the denuncia where there is some prima facie or preliminary evidence that a crime has been committed. This is important where for example a parent does not have any evidence such as a court order granting visits but wants to allege they

have been deprived of contact with their children. In this type of case it is best to consult a Spanish abogado before seeking to make a private allegation. Once the denuncia is made against a person or company and if the allegation is not for a grave or serious offence leading to immediate arrest it will be put before the local Judge who will consider firstly if there is a need for an urgent or preventive measure. The time this will take will vary depending on the particular court. The Judge in Spain is an investigating judge who will then call for witnesses and evidence. This is part of a procedure called diligencias previas or preliminary investigation. Witnesses are served with a request to attend the court and evidence will be called for by the judge who is in control of all of the information. This is not an adversarial procedure and on rare occasions the whole investigation can be declared secreto sumario which means none of those involved will be given information on the investigation. Once this preliminary investigation and with the advice of the ministerio fiscal the judge will then decide if the matter should be put before a full trial court which will be before the criminal courts or the Provincial Higher court depending on the gravity of the alleged offence. If there is not sufficient evidence that a crime has been committed the judge will archive the proceedings. If you wish more information on this particular topic or would like to discuss any matter raised in this article, contact Sandra Wrightson or Javier Florido on 952 527 014.

Talleres Simon - English Speaking Garage Looking for a reliable, trustworthy English garage? Well, look no further. With more than 24 years experience, Simon Alle of Talleres Simon is waiting to meet your motoring needs. In an interview with Simon, he talks about the opening of his new workshop in the Poligono la Panoleta industrial estate in Velez Malaga. so simon, why did you decide to open this workshop? “I had been working as a mobile mechanic in this area for the past six years, and pretty much all of my work came through recommendation. It got to the point where demand became so great that opening a legal business with a fully equipped workshop seemed the next logical step” are there any special offers for new customers? “Absolutely. I am pleased to offer all new customers a free vehicle inspection. This includes brakes, tyres, suspension and steering. If any work is needed, I will give a no obligation quote and explanation of what work is required, and why. We are also offering a 10% discount this month on servicing.” what is the most common service you provide and what does it involve? “The most popular service tends to be the full car service, which includes the following; · The replacement of spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter, oil filter and oil.

tyre pressures and wheels/bearings. Call or send me an email for a quote. I think you will find the pricing very reasonable.” what other services are popular? “Our pre ITV inspection is very popular. Many people find the process of taking the car through Spain’s MOT system quite stressful, especially if they are not confident in Spanish. Clients tell me that just knowing the car has had a thorough once-over gives them peace of mind. “And if you find the whole process of the ITV a bit much, Talleres Simon offers an ITV package. I will book you an appointment, pre-ITV inspect the car and take it for its test. We can also offer a collect and deliver service, so we come to you!” Now the summer is on its way, is there anything we should be doing to maintain our cars? “My advice is to make sure you get your cooling system checked. Talleres Simon offers this service for free. If your antifreeze level and strength are correct, this reduces the likelihood of corrosion in the cooling system. This, in neglected systems, leads to a build-up of an orange coloured sludge, which decreases efficiency and leads to overheating. By doing a little preventative maintenance now, you could potentially save yourself thousands of euros in repair bills.

· Inspection of brake, steering, suspension, lighting, washer and wiper systems.

And let’s face it, the last thing you need is to be stuck on the side of the motorway, with your family, in the blistering heat of the Spanish summer. Also, because of our mountainous landscape and condition of our roads, it is important to know that your brakes are up to scratch, so come in for a free brake check.”

· Full body and under body inspection, tyres,

Those Were The Days I want to be a kid again. I want to go back to the time when:

It was unbelievable that dodge ball wasn't an Olympic event.

Decisions were made by going "eeny-meenyminey-mo."

Having a weapon in school meant being caught with a catapult.

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, "do it again!"

Nobody was prettier than Mum.

"Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest. Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in Monopoly. Catching the fireflies could happily occupy an entire evening. It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends. Being old referred to anyone over 20. The net on a tennis court was the perfect height to play volleyball and rules didn't matter. It was magic when dad would "remove" his thumb. Save up to 50% compared to conventional retaining walls

Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better. It was a big deal to finally be tall enough to ride the "big people" rides at the amusement park. Getting a foot of snow was a dream come true. No shopping trip was complete unless a new toy was brought home. Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was cause for giggles. The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a team. Water balloons were the ultimate weapon.

Dry-stone Gabion Walls Do it yourself or we supply and erect. Up to 50% saving against conventionally built stone walls

Do it yourself kits supplied with full instructions and advice or we can supply and erect using our own fully qualified staff. All products delivered direct from the manufacturer in the UK No planning required No architects drawings No long waits for building licences Suitable for landslips, retaining wall solutions & ornate landscaping All Gabion baskets are guaranteed for over 50 years against corrosion Gabions act as natural drainage so no water diversions are necessary No sand or cement needed

Medical Thermography After meeting Janet Van Dam some nine months ago, I have been completely inspired by her desire to help both men and women detect potential tumours before they have had the chance to grow. Janet offers medical thermography (or digital infra-red thermal imaging). It is carried out by a special camera that can see differences in body temperature, indicating changes in muscle tissue, arteries, veins and bone structure. The screening can pick up any alterations in the breasts at a very early stage, before a cyst or tumour has even developed. This is the key to a good outcome.

The price for a breast screening is 120€. If it’s your first screening, a follow-up is needed after three months. After that, it’s advisable to have it done yearly. The price for two scans is 205€. Janet is available for appointments at the following locations: Centro Mar y Salud - El Morche - 952 523 065 - Tues & Thurs 11am - 6pm Medicare Nursing Services - Cala de Mijas 952 835 776 - Wed - 12 midday - 6pm E.G.O. Hair & Beauty - Cómpeta - 616 022 734 - Every first Tues of the month 11am 4.30pm

In February this year, Janet invited me to a screening. I remember feeling so nervous beforehand but within seconds after arriving, Janet made me feel completely comfortable and reassured me that the procedure would be simple, pain-free, quick and non-invasive. She certainly knew her job and definitely is the perfect lady for the job.

Hair & Beauty Studio - Puente don Manuel 951 232 852 - Mon - 11am - 5pm

My results were received promptly and I can happily say that all was OK. Now, three months on, I re-visited Janet for my follow-up scan. This time I had no nerves at all and as always, Janet was as professional as ever and explained the second process to me. It was the same as the first but she made sure I completely understood. Once again, my results were received within two days and I was informed that I should have a routine annual check-up. This is advised for everyone.

618 989 125

Since Janet started working here in the Axarquia nine months ago, she has expanded her business and now attends four different clinics each week, due to the high demand for her services.

Caddies Know Best

10. Golfer: "Think I'm going to drown myself in the lake." Caddy: "Think you can keep your head down that long?" 9. Golfer: "I'd move heaven and earth to break 100 on this course." Caddy: "Try heaven, you've already moved most of the earth." 8. Golfer: "Do you think my game is improving?" Caddy: "Yes, you miss the ball much closer now." 7. Golfer: "Do you think I can get there with a 5 iron?" Caddy: "Eventually." 6. Golfer: "You've got to be the worst caddy in the world." Caddy: "I don't think so, that would be too much of a coincidence." 5. Golfer: "Please stop checking your watch



all the time. It's too much of a distraction." Caddy: "It's not a watch - it's a compass." 4. Golfer: "How do you like my game?" Caddy: "Very good, but personally, I prefer golf." 3. Golfer: "Do you think it's a sin to play on Sunday? Caddy: "The way you play, it's a sin on any day." 2. Golfer: "This is the worst course I've ever played on." Caddy: "This isn't the golf course. We left that an hour ago." 1. Best Caddy Comment: Golfer: "That can't be my ball, it's too old." Caddy: "It's been a long time since we teed off" And finally... A Golfer who has been slicing off the tee at every hole finally gives up and asks his long suffering caddy if he has seen any obvious problems to which the caddy replies, "There's a piece of s*** on the end of your club." The Golfer picks his club up and cleans the club face at which point the caddy says, "No, the other end."

Bees can count to four. Honey bees fly at 15 miles per hour. Bee stings actually cause several deaths each year. Honey bees will travel up to three miles from their hive in search of food. The Honey bee Queen may lay 600-800 or even 1,500 eggs each day during her lifetime Honey bees wings stroke 11,400 times per

minute. This is what makes their distinctive buzz The only insect which produces food for humans are honey bees Honey bees have to consume about 8 pounds of honey to produce one pound of beeswax Honey bees are responsible for pollinating approximately 80% of all fruit, vegetable and seed crops in the U.S Bees are a part of the third largest insect order which also includes wasps and ants Bees are only able to sting once because the stinger of the bee remains in the victim’s skin. When the bee moves or is scraped away, the stinger is jerked from the bee’s body along with their venom sac causing their death.

Amazing Animals (Continued) Bees can recognise individual human faces The only bees that die after they sting are honey bees Honey bees have five eyes: three small ones on top of the head and two big ones in front Bees communicate with each other by dancing and by using pheromones Brains of bees are the size of a sesame seed, which are about 20,000 times smaller than the human brain Honey bees never sleep


Random Joke As Air Force One arrives at Heathrow Airport, President Obama strides to a warm and dignified reception from the Queen. They are driven in a 1934 Bentley to the edge of central London, where they change to a magnificent 17th century carriage hitched to six white horses. They continue on towards Buckingham Palace, waving to the thousands of cheering Britons; all is going well. Suddenly the right rear horse lets fly with the most horrendous earth shattering fart ever heard in the British Empire. The smell is atrocious and both passengers in the carriage must use handkerchiefs over their noses. The fart shakes the coach, but the two dignitaries of State do their best to ignore the incident. The Queen turns to President Obama, " Mr. President, please accept my regrets... I am sure you understand there are some things that even a Queen cannot control." Obama, always trying to be Presidential, replied: "Your Majesty, do not give the matter another thought... Until you mentioned it, I thought it was one of the horses�.

Funny Thoughts A few things to ponder What would a chair look like if your knees bent the other way.

Why do they call it the Department of Interior when they are in charge of everything outdoors?

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to see it do the other trees make fun of it? Why is a carrot more orange than an orange? When two airplanes almost collide why do they call it a near miss?? It sounds like a near hit to me!! Who's bigger? Mr. Bigger or Mr. Bigger's baby! Mr. Bigger's baby because he is a little bigger! Do fish get cramps after eating?

Should vegetarians eat animal crackers? If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you. The pen is mightier than the sword - if the sword is very small and the pen is real sharp. I didn't fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian. When it rains, why don't sheep shrink?

How come abbreviated is such a long word?

Stupidity got us into this mess. Why can't it get us out?

Why are there 5 syllables in the word "monosyllabic"?

The trouble with doing nothing is that you never know when you are finished.

If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?

Money isn't everything, but at least it encourages relatives to stay in touch.

The Word Queen The Setting & Location of Your Novel The key to writing a good setting is making it the base of the story. Setting is as important to your writing as plot, character and emotion. It is a part of all those things. Creating the perfect setting is not as hard as you might think if you take the time to consider who is going to be living in it. The characters, action, and ultimately the solution to your novel will determine the perfect setting for any novel. With some consideration to these important elements, your setting will often create itself. Check out these first two of ten tips for creating an inspiring setting: 1. get to know Your setting – Whether your story is set in a university, London city, or a posh restaurant, an interesting setting is critical to good storytelling. And there’s no better way to make it compelling than to know it inside and out. To learn more about your setting ask it questions like: “How old are you?” “What kind of people come here?” “What are your

biggest secrets?” If you want to use a location that you have never visited, research it via the internet, tour guides, travel clubs and interviewing people who have visited the locations you want to use. 2. Let Your Characters Explore the setting – If you’re concerned that your book’s characters will get bored of hanging out in just one setting, give them a secondary location. After you have thoroughly investigated your setting(s), you can then decide how your characters fit into this setting. Most readers need enough details about the setting to know where the characters are, in what time period the story takes place and what the place looks like. Next time we’ll look at the rest of these ten tips!

Psychic Medium Energy Healer

The Accidental Psychic

Five years ago I had my palm read at the Mind Body Spirit Show in Marbella. All the positive things which the palm reader said felt so uplifting that after he’d finished, I decided to see a medium on another table, along with my eightyear-old daughter, China. However, what this person said shocked me to the core and it took me years to get over it: “Your wife is not your soulmate,” he said, and then repeated this at least five times in my 15minute slot. My daughter was crying, and I could easily have started to bring fear into my relationship, but I learned one thing, that I’ll never give negative energy to people in my readings, because mediums and psychics are not always right. I’m living proof of that! Luckily, I listened to my inner self. If I hadn’t, goodness knows what would have happened. Five years on, my beautiful wife and I have never been happier. If I’d chosen to believe that medium’s words I could have spent those years in pain and doubt, but I didn't, and magic began to happen as I found myself on an amazing path of working as a psychic medium and healer myself. I never tell people they’re not with their soulmate because I wouldn’t want even my worst enemy to feel the pain I felt. I like to seek the loving, caring side of people, revealing to them their inner gifts and helping them see who they really are. We all have negative things going on around us on a daily basis, but we can rise above this. We live in a beautiful world if we choose to see it that way. All my messages focus on peace, strength and happiness and these words contain an energy which hangs around until you allow a person or a situation to take this away. So don't allow anyone to steal your happiness, and don't let any situation bring you down. Work on this, then watch how quickly your life fills with magic and see how many wonderful people flow in. Like attracts like, so be the best person you can be: caring, sharing and positive. See the good in everything, and all this new energy you send out will come back to you ten-fold. The moral of this story is that sometimes we learn painful things, but in the end we can choose which way to look. Love and light, International Psychic Medium Mark Bajerski Tel: 649369009

Best Advice

10 pieces of advice to be passed on to your mum, your daughters or granddaughters, nieces, aunts, girlfriends, etc..

6. Best way to get a man to do something is to suggest he is too old for it. 7. Love is blind, but marriage is a real eyeopener.

1. Don't imagine you can change a man - unless he's in nappies.

8. The children of Israel wandered around the desert for 40 years. Even in Biblical times, men wouldn't ask for directions.

2. What do you do if your boyfriend walks out? You shut the door. 3. If they put a man on the moon - they should be able to put them all up there.

9. If he asks what sort of books you're interested in, tell him cheque books.

4. Go for the younger man. You might as well, they never mature anyway. 5. Men are all the same - they just have different faces, so we can tell them apart.


10. Remember a sense of humour does not mean that you tell him jokes, it means that you laugh at his.

Benagalbon is just along the coast from Rincon de la Victoria and inland two kilometres on the road leading to Moclinejo and Almáchar. It is only 12 kilometres from Málaga and very close to the 18 hole Añoreta golf course. One drives past Benagalbon, up and down on the way to somewhere else without ever going into it but once there its one of the prettiest villages with pots of flowers everywhere, a beautiful church, la iglesia de Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria, with Jesus Christ hanging over the congregation, a lovely square with a fountain and many bars and restaurants as well as the Museum of Popular Art and a drinking fountain inside an olive pot! Rufo Festo Avieno, the 4th century geographer, described the area as the home of the temple to the goddess Noctiluca, or Moon Temple and further towards the coast, from the same period, can be found remains of a Roman Villa in Torre de Benagalbon. The Romans also built a

fortress on El Castillon hill in Rincon de la Victoria which was used by the Muslims until the Catholic Monarchs captured it. The final expulsion of the Muslims in 1570 and the frequent attacks from the sea by the Berber pirates left this area practically uninhabited in the 16th century and the few who decided to remain settled around the old Benagalbon Farm thus founding the village. The name derives from the Arabic Bena Galb-un which means The Tribe of Galb-un. From being almost uninhabited until the late 19th century this area became the most important population centre. The look out tower at Torre del Benagalbon is still in quite good condition and was part of the defensive system provided in the late middle and early modern ages to give warning of the numerous invasions from the sea. Modern day Benagalbon hosts its annual Fiesta and contest of Pandas de Verdiales during September with various bands playing different music in the same square! Once the prize has been won the bands go off to different locations and continue playing, so you can follow your favourite and enjoy the music ´til the wee small hours!

ra a p Pa Profile

Name: Drew Blyth Barrymore Birthday: 22nd February, 1975

Chosen by "People" magazine as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World in 1997. She is half Hungarian from her mother's side. She is allergic to garlic, bee stings, perfume and coffee. Steven Spielberg gave her a quilt for her birthday with a note "Cover yourself up". Enclosed was a copy of the January 1995 issue of Playboy Magazine for which she posed nude, with the pictures altered by Spielberg's art department so that she appeared fully clothed. As a child, she auditioned for the role of Carol Ann in Poltergeist. She was formerly a vegan: "I don't eat a ton of meat, and I don't wear a ton of leather, but I just don't put strict limitations on myself anymore".

age: 36 sign: Pisces Birthplace: Culver City, California, USA Drew is an American actress, film director, screenwriter, producer and model. She is a member of the Barrymore family of American actors and granddaughter of John Barrymore. She first appeared in an advertisement when she was just 11 months old. Barrymore made her film debut in Altered States in 1980. Afterwards, she starred in her breakout role in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. She quickly became one of Hollywood's most recognised child actors, going on to establish herself in mainly comic roles. Following a turbulent childhood which was marked by drug and alcohol abuse and two stints in rehab, Barrymore wrote the 1990 autobiography, Little Girl Lost. She successfully made the transition from child star to adult actress with a number of films. Drew never finished high school. She was originally offered the lead role in Scream but chose to play Casey Becker because she thought it would be more fun. Drew was engaged to Jamie Walters for a brief period of time.

Her $3-million Beverly Hills mansion caught fire while she and fiance Tom Green were inside sleeping. The couple made it safely out, but the house was ruined. Drew began a relationship with Tom Green in February 2000, before getting engaged to him in July 2000. They married on 7 July 2001, but separated in December 2001 after just five months of marriage. Their divorce was finalised in October 2002. She married Tom Green twice: first eloping to the South Pacific in March 2001, then on July 7, 2001 before family and friends in a ceremony in Malibu, California. She and Tom Green then honeymooned in Ireland. One of her hobbies is photography. Lived with David Crosby and his wife for over a year.

Veggie Patch

Sex After Death

There’s big news from the veggie patch this month as we’re moving!

A couple made a deal that whoever died first would come back and inform the other of the afterlife. Their biggest fear was that there was no after life at all. After a long life together, the husband was the first to die. True to his word, he made the first contact: "Marion... Marion " "Is that you, Bob?" "Yes, I've come back like we agreed." "That's wonderful! What's it like?" "Well, I get up in the morning, I have sex. I have breakfast and then it's off to the golf course. I have sex again, bathe in the warm sun and then have sex a couple of more times. Then I have lunch (you'd be proud - lots of greens). Another romp around the golf course, then pretty much have sex the rest of the afternoon. After supper, it's back to golf course again. Then it's more sex until late at night. I catch some much needed sleep and then the next day it starts all over again" "Oh, Bob you are in Heaven then"

José, who owns and rents out the plots, also has fifty patches in Mezquitilla, and as Kami and I both live just five minutes away from there, it makes sense to move. Unfortunately we can’t take our tomato plants with us as they’re already too big and bushy, but we can dig up our pepper plants, mandarin tree and strawberries. We also figured that this time round we can do it properly, having learnt many lessons from our time tending to the Vélez plot. Let’s just say that it all didn’t work out exactly to plan... our carrots and watermelons didn’t even get off the ground so to speak! In terms of yielding results, our beetroots and cabbages are nearly all eaten for this year, but we still have lots of onions to chomp through... it’s a good job I eat salad every day! Next month I’ll let you know how the move to Mezquitilla went. If you’d like to tend to your very own vegetable patch on the coast of Mezquitilla then call José on 639 120 707. Plots start from just €20 a month.

Film iew Panda 2 RevKung Fu

Shen is a rather sly, luxury-driven, class act Peacock with a sinful laugh, piercing gaze and hyper tendencies. An exquisite prologue relates an interface of finely cut-out figures to reveal Shen's back story, all the more enriching on 3D. It's interesting how as Po's story draws a new arc, the action-adventure blends the search for one's identity and quest to defeat evil into a unified objective.

Kung Fu Panda never bore the burden of heightened expectations, but its sequel is entitled to the probability of being bigger and better, plus it’s in 3D. Irrespective of your age, you'll revel in the unstoppable madness, mayhem and melodrama of the coolest, cuddliest, chubbiest panda in the history of animation. This time around Po's nemesis is a power-hungry bloke aiming to take reigns of China. Lord Shen (Gary Oldman) has a history of resentful adolescence giving into the dark side after being denied absolute power.

Kung Fu Panda's charm lies in the classic triumph of a humorous underdog, while Kung Fu Panda 2 digs deeper, without compromising on its essence to deliver a dazzling entertainer and confirm its hero's

The Royal British Legion

This year sees the 90th Anniversary of the Royal British Legion.

There will be various activities throughout Spain South to celebrate this occasion. The Royal British Legion is the leading U.K. Charity, providing direct, practical support for our wounded heroes and bereaved Armed Forces families. The past twelve months of conflict have increased the need for our help both today and for years to come. There are many locations throughout Spain South where you will see, all the year round, the RED Poppy collecting boxes. May we take this opportunity to thank all who contribute with their donations. November is traditionally Remembrance-tide and there will be many more RED poppy boxes and Poppies in evidence at that time. The Legion collaborates with other charities such as R.A.F.A; Age Concern; Cudeca; Help for Heroes; Age Care, S.S.A.F.A; etc. Without the generosity of the general public we should find it difficult to provide care for our Beneficiaries. thaNk YOU aLL

BEM idiomas I don’t get too much spare time but when I do, I like to make the most of it. So this afternoon I thought that a nice relax on the beach was just what the doctor had ordered. Whilst lying there, I started to think how many words I know in Spanish; I was very surprised by just how many I had learned. I thought that it would be very boring just to list all the words I knew, so I played a game with my six-yearold daughter where we had to name something that we could see on the beach beginning with every letter of the alphabet. Here’s what we saw: a – avión – Plane; B – Bocadillo – Roll; C – Coche – Car; D - Delfín – Dolphin (not a real one, but on a rubber ring!); E – Embarazada – Pregnant lady; F – Flotadores – Flotables; g – gente – People; h – helado – Ice cream; i ?; J – Juguetes – Toys; k – kiosko – Kiosk; L – Limón – Lemon; M – Mar - Sea; N – Niños – Children; O - Olas – Waves; P – Parasol – Parasol; Q - Queso – Cheese; r - restaurante – Restaurant ; s – sol – Sun; t – toalla – Towel; U – Uvas – Grapes; V – Vela – Sail; w – windsurf – Windsurfer; X – There appear to only be six words beginning with X in my dictionary, none of them being remotely beach related! Y – Yo-yo - Yo yo; Z –Zapatos - Shoes. We certainly had fun but I will admit I had to cheat when I got home and look in the dictionary for a couple. As you can see, with the ‘i’s’, even by looking in the dictionary I couldn’t find one (that I might have seen on the beach that is) and cheated on the E and the U!

Kids Teachings Things adults have learnt from kids… There is no such thing as child proofing your house. They will get out anyway. A 4-year-old’s voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant (unless of course you are in Spain). When you hear the toilet flush and the words “uh oh” you know it’s already too late. Lego will pass through the digestive tract of a four year old. Modelling clay and microwave should never be used in the same sentence. Super glue is forever. Video recorders do not eject sandwiches.

The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy. The spin cycle on the washing machine does however make cats dizzy. You can’t hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk. Bin liners do not make good parachutes. You probably do not want to know what that smell is. Marbles in the petrol tank make a lot of noise when driving. A six-year-old can start a fire with a flint rock even though 36year-old men say they can only do it in the movies.

Mind, Body & Spirit When we go to a GP or a hospital consultant, we basically give them the authority to first of all decide what the problem is, and then the power to determine how to deal with it. Though lip-service may be paid to shared decision making, in most cases the patient will agree to the “doctor’s orders.” Often the diagnosis is couched in highly technical terms and accompanied by a barrage of rather threatening warnings about the consequences of refusing treatment, which leave the patient feeling out of his/her depth, frightened and helpless – and therefore compliant. The disease or dysfunction is portrayed as something completely separate from the patient, their circumstances, life-style or emotional state, adding to the sense of personal powerlessness. Treatment, too, tends to be focussed exclusively on eliminating the supposed cause of the problem whether by surgery, drugs or chemical or radiation therapy, often with little consideration for the overall welfare of the patient as a thinking, feeling human being. The holistic approach, on the other hand, puts the whole person at the centre of the therapeutic process, or at least it should. However, in my experience, this is not always the case, nor is this necessarily the “fault” of the practitioner. We have become conditioned and socialised to look outside of ourselves to some perceived authority figure for direction, guidance and decision making. Nor is this abrogation of personal authority the sole preserve of

the “establishment.” When I attend Mind, Body, Spirit festivals I am always struck by the long queues of people waiting at the booths of fortune tellers, psychics, card readers and crystal ball gazers, hoping to be told something which will make them feel better about their lives and relationships. Not, I hasten to add, that I have anything against psychic counselling per se: on the contrary, it can be both helpful and illuminating when coming from a place of genuine ability and integrity. To be empowering, however, any guidance needs to connect the patient/client to his or her own inner knowing – their intuitive sense of their own needs, gifts, capabilities and destiny. Self-discovered learning, knowledge and information, which comes from within oneself, is the most valuable knowledge there is: and it is empowering. We all have the faculty of discernment; that inner knowing of what is truly good and helpful for us and supportive of our highest aspirations and desires, and recognition of that which does not serve us, which takes us further away from achieving our maximum potential of health and fulfilment. The more we use it, the more we learn to trust it and the more responsible and self-empowered we become. So next time you have an important question about your life, start by asking yourself – you just might be surprised by the answer you get!

41 Club 41 club east of Malaga - Axarquia Calling all former Round Tablers! If you have been a member of one of the many Round Tables around the world, then why not find out more about your local 41 Club which has members from East of Malaga to Motril? The Association of Round Tablers now exists in more than 40 countries, having started in Norwich in the UK some 84 years ago. It is an organisation of fellowship where members help others while having fun and enjoying new experiences. Round Table is now for men aged between 18 and 45, but the upper age used to be 40; hence the 41 Club which was invented for ex Round Tablers wishing to continue the link. Our club was started in February 2004 by Troels Peterson and Ragnar Sandsten and has ex Tablers from many countries, although the British are in the majority. Alfie Fornear, the new chairman, joined Round Table in Keynsham aged 28 and found that it was a wonderful way of meeting people. He made a new circle of friends and this experience is being re-

peated now at 41 Club. Alfie lives near Sayalonga, and finds the trips to meetings are simple due to the motorway along the coast. Our club meets twice per month on the first and third Thursdays. The first Thursday is called our 'Munch Bunch' meeting with our partners. We move around our catchment area trying 'menu del dia' at various restaurants. Our meeting on the third Thursday is for the men, however our ladies often go out for a meal on the same night. We meet at the Hotel Al-Andaluz in Maro, next to the caves of Nerja. Some of these evenings are shared with our ladies if we have a splendid speaker. There are seven clubs on the Iberian Peninsula, namely Nerja, Estepona, Calpe, Javea, Mallorca, Gibraltar and the Algarve Club in Portugal. We meet for a superb weekend of fun once a year and this is hosted in turn by all the clubs. This year in October we will meet in Gibraltar.

The award, which came from Royal British Legion headquarters in London, was the only one made outside the United Kingdom and is the only one given world-wide. The award is personal to Bill who has had to deal with some very difficult and sometimes harrowing cases. Bill said “this came as a great surprise. Although this is a personal award and I feel personally pleased, I must also point out that we have a first class team of welfare officers and we provide excellent welfare support in this growing and very successful branch”. Torre del Mar Branch meets at La Vega restaurant on a Wednesday at 12 noon. The branch organises a wide range of social events. New members, who do not have to be ex service, are very welcome.

) : a h a h s e k o J A woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several months yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day. One day, when he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer. As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears, 'You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right here. When my health started failing, you were still by my side... You know what Martha?' 'What dear?' she gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with warmth. 'I'm beginning to think you're bad luck....’ ------------------------------------------------------------Fred and Larry got married in California. They couldn't afford a honeymoon so they go back to Fred's Mum and Dad's house for their first married night together. In the morning, Johnny, Fred's little brother, gets up and has his breakfast. As he is going out of the door to go to school, he asks his mum if Fred and Larry are up yet. She replies, 'No'. Johnny asks, 'Do you know what I think?' His mum replies, 'I don't want to hear what you think! Just go to school.' Johnny comes home for lunch and asks his mum, 'Are Fred and Larry up yet?' She replies, 'No.' Johnny says, 'Do you know what I think?' His mum replies, 'Never mind what you think! Eat your lunch and go back to school’ After school, Johnny comes home and asks again, 'Are Fred and Larry up yet?' His mum says, 'No.' He asks, 'Do you know what I think?' His mum replies, 'OK, now tell me what you think.'

He says: 'Last night Fred came to my room for the vaseline and I think...... I gave him my airplane glue.' ------------------------------------------------------------Three women, two younger and one senior citizen, were sitting naked in a sauna. Suddenly there was a beeping sound. The young woman pressed her forearm and the beep stopped. The others looked at her questioningly. "That was my pager," she said. "I have a microchip under the skin of my arm." A few minutes later, a phone rang. The second young woman lifted her palm to her ear. When she finished, she explained, "That was my mobile phone, I have a microchip in my hand." The older woman felt very low-tech, so not to be out done, she decided she had to do something just as impressive. She stepped out of the sauna and went to the bathroom. She returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from her rear end. The others raised their eyebrows and stared at her. The older woman finally said.........."Well will you look at that......I'm getting a fax!!" ------------------------------------------------------------Paddy was working at the fish plant in Cork when he accidentally cut off all 10 of his fingers. He went to the emergency room in Cork's hospital. The doctor looked at Paddy and said, 'Lets be avin' da fingers and I'll see what oi can do'. Paddy said, 'Oi haven't got da fingers.' 'Whadda ya mean you haven't got da fingers? HOLY MOSES Paddy!!!!!..... it's 2011! We's got microsurgery and all kinds of incredible techniques. I could have put dem back on and made you like new! Why didn't ya bring da fingers?!?' And Paddy said, 'How da fock was I 'spose to pick them up!!! ------------------------------------------------------------Why do men become smarter during sex?

Jokes h a h a :) A skinny little white Irishman goes into an elevator, looks up and sees this HUGE black guy standing next to him. The big guy sees the little Irishman staring at him, he looks down and says: '7’ tall, 350lbs, 20” penis, 3lbs of testicles, Turner Brown.' The little white Irishman faints and falls to the floor. The big guy kneels down and brings him to, shaking him.. The big guy says, 'What's wrong with you, little fellow?' In a weak voice the little guy says, 'What EXACTLY did you say to me?' The big dude says, 'I saw your curious look and I figured I'd just give you the answers to the questions everyone always asks me............I'm 7’ tall, I weigh 350lbs, I have a 20” penis, my testicles weigh 3lbs each and my name is Turner Brown.' The little white Irishman says, 'Turner Brown'?! Sweet Jesus, I thought you said, "Turn around"! ------------------------------------------------------------A Welshman buys several sheep, hoping to breed them for wool. After several weeks, he notices that none of the sheep are getting pregnant, and phones a vet for help. The vet tells him that he should try artificial insemination. The farmer doesn't have the slightest idea what this means but, not wanting to display his ignorance, only asks the vet how he will know when the sheep are pregnant. The vet tells him that they will stop standing around and instead will lie down and wallow in grass when they are pregnant. The man hangs up and gives it some thought. He comes to the conclusion that artificial insemination means he has to impregnate the sheep himself.. So, he loads the sheep into his Land Rover, drives them out into the woods, has sex with them all, brings them back, and goes to bed. Next morning, he wakes and looks out at the sheep. Seeing that they are all still standing around, he deduces that the first try didn't take,

and loads them in the Land Rover again. He drives them out to the woods, bangs each sheep twice for good measure, brings them back, and goes to bed exhausted. Next morning, he wakes to find the sheep still just standing round. 'Try again' he tells himself, and proceeds to load them up, and drive them out to the woods. He spends all day doing the sheep and upon returning home, falls listlessly into bed. The next morning, he cannot even raise himself from the bed to look out of the window. He asks his wife to look, and tell him if the sheep are lying in the grass. 'No,' she says, 'they're all in the Land Rover, and one of them is beeping the horn.' ------------------------------------------------------------Forty gypsies arrive at the Pearly Gates in their Transit vans and caravans. St Peter goes into the gatehouse and phones up GOD, saying: I've got 40 travellers here. Can I let them in? GOD replies 'We are over our quota on Pikeys. Go back out to the Pearly Gates and tell them to choose among them which are the 12 most worthy, and I will let just the dozen in.' Less than a minute later St Peter is on the phone to GOD again. 'They've gone', he tells GOD. What?' says GOD, 'All 40 of them?' No, the Pearly Gates'. ------------------------------------------------------------One day my housework-challenged husband decided to wash his sweat-shirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to me, ‘What setting do I use on the washing machine?' 'It depends,' I replied. 'What does it say on your shirt?' He yelled back, ' University of Oklahoma ...' And they say blondes are dumb... ------------------------------------------------------------Q. Why don't women blink during sex? A. They don't have enough time.

s n g i S r Sta Mystic Mag takes a sip from her cup of life to reveal to you readers the highs and lows of July… Capricorn – No two relationships are ever the same, so stop dwelling on the ideal and start thinking reality. If your partner has allergic reactions to air, or an acute snoring disorder, try and see beyond the faults. Lucky sign – A long stick Aquarius – Learn to love your neighbours and they will show you love back. Even if you think one of them belongs in the Al Quaida, don’t hate. That really is an ugly trait. Evil even. Lucky sign – Scarves Pisces – Life is like a box of chocolates and you are about to pull out a coffee cream. Sweet upon first sample, but it leaves a bitter aftertaste. Lucky sign – Gold plated tinfoil Aries – Business wise you are heading along a steep path. Fortunately your way is uphill, not down. In other words you are going to do mighty well from this month and for the rest of the year, so make the most of it! Lucky sign – Power shoes Taurus – You are sometimes like a flower. When you are happy and content you bloom to full beauty and when you are sad, anxious or worried you close a little and often turn into a mere bud. It’s time to blossom again… Lucky sign – A field of daisies Gemini – You are contemplating getting a pond in your garden, but it’s such a shame that you are scared of frogs. Lucky sign – Hungry goldfish

Cancer – Money worries continue to swamp your mind, especially now that your lifestyle is thriving to new heights. Just don’t give up the day job! Lucky sign – A tatty timetable Leo – You like to have things handed to you on a plate, but at times the plate becomes empty and bare. Visually fill it with all you want on it, focus on these things and then watch your plate expand beyond belief so that in the end you may even need a dish. Lucky sign – A big spoon Virgo – Exercise is a necessary ingredient of a healthy life and you aren’t getting enough of it. Why not consider joining the local gym, taking lessons in your fave sport, or simply walking. Lucky sign – Trainers Libra – Travels are likely this month for you Librans, so get your suitcase at the ready, but not that charcoal grey one with the hole in the base. Invest in a new bright one and watch the colour dance to all areas of your life. Lucky sign – Red hankies Scorpio – The cogs are moving… Lucky sign – Rhythm Sagittarius – Leopards can’t change their spots so don’t you try and change yours. You are who you are and that’s good enough. If others don’t like it, then hard cheese! Lucky sign – Master key And if it’s your Birthday this month don’t get sunburnt get sun shade!
