Summer has arrived and as a result I’ve found myself dining alfresco far more frequently than during the winter months. I recently visited a good friend in Mijas Pueblo and we decided to catch up over lunch. We went to a restaurant in the middle of the village which served fairly healthy food at a reasonable price. As it was a hotter than average day we opted to eat outside and we walked through the restaurant to access the seating area out back. There seated on the terrace I noticed tables-full of tourists tucking into their meals. I glanced across to three empty tables, mentally debating which would prove the most comfortable. But my friend looked back at me and smiled. “Follow me,” he said with a glint in his eye. I followed him as he walked around the corner and passed under a small arch partially covered by a tangle of foliage. We walked around another corner. I stopped in sheer awe, amazed at the sight before my eyes. There in front of us was a spacious opening of trees, flowers and greenery surrounding a dozen or so tables. The area exhumed magic and charm and the trees emitted a divine and tranquil energy – the perfect combination for a humid summer’s day. What’s more this ‘secret garden’ was completely void of people. Aside from us, everyone else had seen the terrace area and assumed it was all this breathtaking

From The Ed (cont) wonderland had to offer. And then, as I sat in the shade of a lemon tree, blissfully emerged in the gifts of mother nature, it suddenly dawned on me. How many other ‘secret gardens’ have I missed in life as a result of following the crowd or through not going that little bit further due to familiarity or habit? Digging a little deeper I then realised that I have most likely missed the ‘secret garden’ in most areas of my life. Take a look at your own life and you’ll probably think of various ways in which you could walk that little bit further to move from the ordinary to the extraordinary… from the plain and simple terrace to the magical, mystical ‘secret garden.’ My experience with the secret garden taught me a very valuable lesson – when we refuse to settle for the ordinary and we go the extra mile, the universe rewards us with amazing beauty and far more than we could ever have hoped for.

Strange News Pretty flamingo A Chinese zoo has managed to persuade its lonely flamingos to breed - by surrounding their cage with mirrors to make it seem as if they are in a colony. Shentzen Zoo spokesman Zhang Lu said: "In the wild they live in large flocks and when they are separated, they become depressed and anxious, and they certainly don't feel confident enough to have chicks. "We got the birds in 1993 from Japan but they didn't breed at all and we were told by experts that we didn't have enough of them to make them feel as if they were a real flamingo colony. In total we fitted 45 feet of mirrors, each over three feet high, and it was amazing to see the change in the birds. They were much more animated and ate more. “The real proof was that we have had chicks every year since then.” Camera cop An Essex man foiled a raid on his home — by shouting at burglars via webcam from Turkey. The man was 1,500 miles away at a family funeral when he called home for a video chat. He was speaking to his wife via MSN Messenger when she left the house to speak to their son. However, the internet connection remained on and the man was stunned to see two burglars in his hallway. He screamed at them: "Get out of my house - I am calling the police." The terrified pair fled empty-handed and are currently being hunted by police. Hole in one A terrified driver has told how his mini bus disappeared down a 20ft pothole which suddenly opened up beneath him as he sat in a traffic jam. The seven foot deep hole engulfed the bus without warning after weeks of torrential rain had washed away the road's foundations under the tarmac in Guilin city, southern China. "I thought it was an earthquake,” said the man, who managed to scramble to safety. “The ground suddenly disappeared from underneath me and there was this tremendous crack and a rumbling.” A police officer added: "It was impossible to predict. The road looked undamaged on the surface but the weight of the mini bus sitting on it was just too much for it to bear."

Sadly, this company has now closed due to family circumstances, but Nick is offering the same high level of service and product range. Nick Turner Refurbs specialises in high quality UPVC or aluminium doors, windows and glass curtains at competitive prices. These amazingly low prices are possible because of his low overheads.

ting new doors and windows in UPVC or aluminium; installing new kitchens and bathrooms; plumbing and electrical installations, or maybe just painting or tiling. “We also specialise in made-to-measure pergolas and sun decks which can bring an outside space to life. “Our main aim is to liaise closely with all our customers and keep them updated via email or telephone. Most of our customers find this invaluable as many of the homes we work on are holiday homes or rental properties. “We also aim to finish all projects on time and on budget — this is vital for our customers.

Random Joke A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic rubbish bags behind her. One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a €20 note fell out onto the pavement. Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, "Ma'am, there are €20 notes falling out of that bag." "Oh dear!” said the little old lady. "I'd better go back and see if I can find them. Thank you for telling me officer." Well now, not so fast," said the policeman. Where did you get all that money? You didn't steal it, did you?" "Oh, no, no", said the old lady. "You see, my garden backs onto a golf course. A lot of golfers come and pee through a knot hole in my fence, right into my flower border’ It used to really annoy me. Kills the flowers, you know. Then I thought, 'why not make the best of it?' So now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole with my hedge clippers, really quiet, and when some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I grab hold of it and say, 'Right! Give me €20, or off it comes.' "Well, that seems only fair," said the policeman, laughing. "OK. Good luck! Oh, by the way, what's in the other bag?" “Well you see, not everybody pays.........”

De Cotta Law Taking a child overseas after a divorce by Reyes Gomez, Lawyer with De Cotta Law in Nerja Following separation or divorce of residents in Spain, there is significant potential for conflict when one of the parents wishes to take the a child to live with them overseas, for example back to the UK. This matter must be managed with great care in order to avoid committing a criminal act. If a parent plans to move to live with the children in another country, be aware that this requires the agreement and consent of the other parent. This permission must be obtained unequivocally, and ideally in writing, to avoid conflict should the other party change their mind. In cases where it is not possible to obtain the other parent's consent amicably, then the permission must be sought in court. Obtaining Consent In short, a parent needs the permission of the other parent or a Court Order to take a child permanently abroad. To maximise the chances of success with the

court granting custody and permission to take the child overseas, the case must be professionally prepared. It is important to establish a system for visitation, so that the other parent can have access to the child for a length of time that reflects the geographical distance between them. If the dispute is not legally settled in court, then taking the child overseas without consent and a court order, without establishing regular visitation rights for the other parent, is a criminal act, considered child abduction or kidnapping. Child Kidnapping If the child is taken abroad without consent, the other party can commence legal proceedings requesting the return of the child under the Hague Convention of October 25, 1989 on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. Under this law, it is likely that you and your child will be forced to return to Spain, and a formal application must be made for custody of the child and a decision upon place of residence. During this legal conflict both parents and the child must stay in Spain. When considering an application for a court order, or to challenge a court order, the most important consideration is the welfare of the child: their new home life, education, visitation access and regular access to both parents as these will be the issues that the court will take into account. Professional Advice Therefore it is highly recommended to seek permission and address any potential conflict before leaving Spain with the child. Reaching an agreement may cause a delay in departure, but will in the long term lead to a much more stable and amicable solution. De Cotta Law is a specialist in Family Law and the issues surrounding the international relocation of children following divorce.

Padre Pio Anyone who has lived in Torre del Mar area over the last few years, would have noticed the change of the area called El Copo. Once upon a time, this place used to be the night time venue for many a youngster packed with little night clubs open til 6am in the morning. Well now things have changed, the clubs have gone and little cafes, snack bars and restaurants have popped up. By far the best restaurant, is Padre Pio, a pretty little establishment, owned by Marziano and Nay. On the terrace, the well dressed tables and chairs are entwined with various plants and flowers, quite beautiful. Having recently visited the restaurant, we were offered a warm welcome by Marziano

at e r G es Win

and shown to our table. Whilst we persued the extensive menu of various pastas, meats and fish, canapes of olives and cheese were brought out, always a nice touch. The wife chose a Padre Pio salad and vegetable spaghetti and I chose calamari and mixed fish and seafood. The fish was very tender and very fresh. The wife was asked how she wanted her pasta cooked, which is very rare these days, al dente was the choice. The food, surroundings, service and the whole experience was superb! A visit is a must. On the 12th July from 9pm, there will be a special taster menu evening. Here you have an opportunity to try various typical Italian dishes with certain wines that should accompany that dish. A night of quality food and wine which should be popular so reservation of a table is a must. Bon Appetito!

Black is an authoritative and powerful colour. It can evoke strong emotions, and too much can be overwhelming. Black represents a lack of colour; the primordial void and emptiness. It is a classic colour for clothing, possibly because it makes the wearer appear thinner and more sophisticated. Chinese culture, colours corresponded with the five primary elements, the directions and the four seasons. Black was associated with water, north and winter. In the west, black is the colour of mourning but the custom of wearing unadorned black clothing for mourning dates back at least to the Roman Empire, when the Toga pulla made of dark-coloured wool was worn during periods of mourning.

tended period of time. In China, black is a traditional clothing colour for boys. A black cat crossing one's path is considered bad luck in many cultures, except in England, where spotting a black cat is considered good luck. The colour black is associated with sophistication and power...tuxedos, limousines, judge's robes and priests' attire are all typically black. One old wives' tale claims that if a woman is buried wearing the colour black, she'll come back to haunt the family. Black implies weight - people will think a black box weighs more than a white one.

“When a car has been written off you have the chance to give customers back the trust that they have placed in you.” An accident in which a car has been written off is always the worst kind, because it implies the disappearance of the insured car. Francisco Valencia, Línea Directa’s Corporate Governance Director, describes to us the quality measures taken by his company, a leading insurance company for foreigners. Losing your vehicle in a foreign country is undoubtedly a major setback for anybody. What makes Línea Directa different from other companies? First of all, the personalised service. Línea Directa offers customer service over the telephone entirely in English and German and also acts as an intermediary and translator with garages and scrap merchants. In addition to this, we also offer different cover options, which no other insurer offers, such as our amount of compensation, which is never below €1000, or when appropriate, double the price paid by customers for their insurance. You also have a purchasing centre if customers wish to acquire a new vehicle after theirs has been written off. At Línea Directa we believe that when a car has been written off, it is an opportunity to give customers back the trust that they have placed in you. As a result, if customers ask us to, we take care of all the processes involved in buying a new vehicle in their name, including the paperwork and delivery of the vehicle to their home address. And finally, how does Línea Directa pay compensation? Línea Directa is committted to paying compensation within 40 days at the very most, although the average waiting time is always much less. If the car is less than 2 years old, either we pay its value when new in compensation or we take care of all the processes involved in purchasing another vehicle. In addition, if the car is between 2 and 3 years old, we offer 15% more than its official value, as a quality measure.

The Importance Of Walking Just one foot follows the other.. Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at €7,000 per month. My grandpa started walking five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 97 years old and we don't know where he is. I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me. The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate. I do have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them. The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say, 'Well, she looks good doesn't she.' If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country. I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years, just getting over the hill.

I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing...

We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I joined a health club last year, spent about 400€. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.

Every time I start thinking too much about how I look, I just find a Happy Hour and by the time I leave I look just fine.

We All Love This One! BBQ RULES We are about to enter the BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity. When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion: Routine... (1) The woman buys the food. (2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes dessert. (3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand. (4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three metre exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman. Here comes the important part: (5) THE MAN PLACES THE MEAT ON THE GRILL. More routine...

(6) The woman goes inside to organise the plates and cutlery. (7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another beer while he flips the meat Important again: (8) THE MAN TAKES THE MEAT OFF THE GRILL AND HANDS IT TO THE WOMAN. More routine... (9) The woman prepares the plates, salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table. (10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes. And most important of all: (11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts. (12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed ' her night off ', and, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women.

g n i z a Am cts ppers Inse sho as r G

Grasshoppers are one of the few insects which most people do not object to — they are totally harmless and are more preyed upon than preying. They are found in most gardens. Grasshoppers can hop, walk and fly. Many male grasshoppers make noise by rubbing their back legs together. There are about 18,000 different species of grasshoppers worldwide. Like all insects, the grasshoppers have a three-part body (head, thorax and abdomen), six jointed legs, two pairs of wings, and two an-

tennae. Their body is covered with a hard exoskeleton. Grasshoppers breathe through a series of holes called spiracles; they are located along the sides of the body. Most grasshoppers are green, brown, or olive-green. They use their long hind legs for hopping. The short front legs are used to hold prey and to walk. Grasshoppers undergo simple (or incomplete) metamorphosis; eggs hatch into nymphs, which look like little adults without wings and reproductive organs. Nymphs moult many times as they grow to be adults.

To advertise call 664 210 468 or email

Amazing Insects (Continued) Some flies also eat grasshopper eggs.


Funny Pics "Buggered If I can see any Resemblance"

Grasshoppers have no ears, but can still hear with a special organ on the abdomen called a tympanal organ. They can jump 20 times the length of their body. That would be like a 6' man jumping 120 feet. The Power of Love The biggest ones are about 4.5 inches (11.5 cm) long. They live on plants. Their predators include birds, beetles, rodents, reptiles, and spiders. They live for about a year.

Not long after, Bill's 30-year-old son Stephen married Mandy's mother, age 46. That made Stephen a stepfather to his former stepmother. If Bill and Mandy had remained married, Stephen would have been his father's fatherin-law and his own grandpa.

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts Sharkys Watersports is based in Torrox, and offers boat trips along the coast: west past the fishing port of La Caleta to Torre de Mar, or eastwards to the famous Balcon de Europe at Nerja and onwards past the beautiful bay of La Herradura. Visit the team's favourite bar/restaurant El Barco in Marina Del Este and go on towards the castle at Almunecar. The choice is yours. Tony (Sharky), the owner and skipper, has been water skiing for more than 30 years and holds an international certificate of competence as a ski boat driver, parascending instructor certificate and an RYA 1 & 2 for power pleasure craft. “Prior to launching, we check weather conditions using two different sites,” he says. “Should we decide that conditions are not safe, we reserve the right cancel the charter for your safety. We will always telephone you the day of charter to confirm.” Discover the beautiful coastline of La Herradura, which boasts one of the prettiest bays in Europe. View the famous Balcon de Europe in Nerja from the sea. Enjoy an exciting speedboat trip on a day out where you can swim in crystal clear waters, snorkel and explore the

colourful marine life. Or you could just relax and sunbathe in one of the secluded sheltered coves along this beautiful unspoilt coastline. “Our extensive range of watersports equipment includes wakeboards, water-skis, ringos, screamers and knee boards,” says Sharky. “With every activity option, we provide tuition and guidance for those who need it, ensuring you all get the most out of the activities. If some of your group aren't sure about wakeboarding or waterskiing, then there is no problem: there is plenty of enjoyment to be had from the boat, taking in great views and your mates’ efforts! The ringos/screamers are one of the most popular options with the chance to get in the water together and hang on. We guarantee great laughs and memories; fancy dress is optional. Bring along your camera or video to capture those special moments. “There are free ‘sharkyswatersports’ tee shirts and a bottle of bubbly for ‘hens or stags.’ All occasions are catered for, including children's parties etc. We take a maximum of six people on the boat, although we can cater for larger groups. Call for details.”

Angela’s 50th Fitness Charity Challenge The Girl Did It & Raised over 5,000€! Angela Taylor from Buy A Home Spain managed to beat her ambitious target of 5 hours for her crazy fitness challenge by finishing triumphantly in 4 hours 35 minutes. She had support in the gym from 2 friends on the day, Bob Higgs from Torrox who was with Angela from start to finish and Avni Nicholls from Benajarafe who also put in a great effort.

The rest of the weekend, for Angela, was mainly spent sleeping. Furthermore, the objective of the exercise was achieved with Angela raising over 5,000€ for her 3 charities: Cancer Research UK, British Heart Foundation & BLISS The Premature Baby Charity. The money is still coming in and as these are important charities that have touched the vast majority of families, some people felt so strongly that they sent their donations directly to the charity they preferred.

Angela’s husband, Austin was on hand at the end with the bubbly, but the thought of it seemed to turn the participants a delicate shade of green – so that idea was shelved!

I’ve just left Angela’s office and guess where she is going – you’re right, the gym!

It’s no surprise to write that Angela did not do much work that Friday afternoon! Instead they repaired to a tapas bar and then spent the evening with friends in a Chiringuito on Torre del Mar beach.

And I believe there may be another charity challenge on the way. Watch this space! Angela would like to send a huge thank you to everyone who has supported these very worthwhile charities.

Cost Per Litre All these examples do NOT imply that petrol is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are. The last one might shock the socks off you. Think a litre of petrol is expensive? This makes you think, and also puts things into perspective. Can of red Bull, 250ml $2.95 - $11.80 per litre! Cough Mixture 200ml $9.95 - $49.75 per litre! L'Oreal revitalift Day Cream, 50ml $29.95 - $599.00 per litre! rum, 1250ml $51.00 - $40.80 per litre! Visene Eye Drops, 15ml $5.69 - $379.00 per litre! Britney spears Fantasy Perfume, 50ml $29 - $580.00 per litre!

Evian water, 375ml, $2.95 - $7.86 per litre! $7.86 for a litre of WATER!! And this is the real kicker!! Someone calculated the cost of ink at, you won't believe it but it's true; $2,500 a litre.

Art For Health’s Sake The Hospital Comarcal de la Axarquia has a policy of making art available to patients and their families. The East of Målaga/Axarquia health region has been organising these art exhibitions for some years now. With this policy, local artists are promoted by the centre and are brought to the attention of visitors to the hospital, where the communal areas are decorated with these works. This makes for a pleasant ambience for both patients and their families, as well as the professionals who frequent this workspace. Health can really be helped through culture, according to Rafael Sånchez Ortigosa of the press and communications office of the hospital. Born and raised in the UK, artist Su Derrick originally came to Spain aged just 21. She eventually settled in Benamargosa, where she has remained ever since. Five years ago, she opened the doors to La Vaqueria, her workshop and art centre in Benamargosa where she welcomes visitors and fellow artists. Su says, "A lifelong interest in traditional folk

art, coupled with my fine art training, have given me the techniques to create my original designs. I find inspiration in my surroundings: the colours and light of Andalucia are just perfect for my unique style of decorative art." For further information about her work or La Vaqueria, visit her website or drop in during opening hours for home-made cake and a chat! Or see main advert on page 100

El Borge

El Borge (pronounced El Bor hay) strictly speaking should come under B but as there are no villages beginning with E in the Axarquia I thought El Borge could be the one The history of El Borge is dominated by the rebellious nature of its early inhabitants. The most infamous being El Bizco, the one eyed bandit of Borge, who´s house of birth is now a museum, hotel and restaurant, proving just how proud the village is of its sinful son! The Posada del Bandolero has on display in its dining room a collection of paintings and drawings donated by some leading local artists, illustrating the life of the bandit. El Bizco was born on September 2nd in 1837 and later became one of the most bloodthirsty and famous outlaws of Malaga. He died in Lucena on 21st May 1889 when he ran into the Guardia Civil who were formed to deal with the many bandoleros who ruled the mountain passes. El Bizco was not the first bandit to come a cropper against the Guardia on horseback and one such man was even granted a pardon and went on to serve in the Guardia himself, fighting others of his kind until the final bandolero was killed in 1934, 90 years after the Guardia was first formed. At the entrance to the village is an archway containing the images of two other famous residents, Martín Vázquez Ciruela a seventeenth

century theologian and Abdalallah ben Atimad, a botanist who supposedly introduced the lemon tree to the area from the middle east in 1200. A cobbled street leads down past the Fuente de la Vendimia where a bronze statue of a local man proudly bearing a basket on his head brimming with newly harvested grapes, reminds us of the towns economy which is based on the production of raisins. In fact in the middle of September thousands of people gather in the village from far afield for the Festival of the Raisin, where they receive samples of fresh grapes and wine with paella and migas and then merrily compete in a circular dance called danza de la rueda. Viewing the village from afar the most predominant building is the gothic-renaissance parish church of Nuestra Señora del Rosario with its huge tower and belfry. The construction was commissioned by Queen Isabella in the fifteenth century on the foundations of the former mosque. Not to be missed is the Ornithological and Botancial park of La Alcua, a lush and verdant oasis full of exotic plants, fountains and birds such as swans, peacocks, geese and pheasants. If walking up and down the narrow winding streets has worked up an appetite there are several good bars and restaurants where you can rest and recuperate. In summer the 25 metre municipal swimming pool is a good place to cool off and if you don´t like the water you can just watch the action from the shade of the restaurant overlooking the gardens. To get to El Borge you can leave the motorway at Torre del Benagalbon and drive up the winding road past Benagalbon, Moclinejo and Almáchar and then turn left after the bridge or from Vélez-Málaga you follow signs for Benamocarra, turn right after the petrol station and continue up the winding road to Almáchar and up again to El Borge.

Random Joke :)

$$$ Share’oscope $$$

On a recent trip to the United States , Tony Blair, Ex. Prime Minister of the UK, addressed a major gathering of Native American Indians.

Here is Mr. Share with some more share advice! Things are still very volatile at the moment, what with the Eurozone crisis, so trying to make a quick buck is nigh on impossible. I’ve bought 387 Cape @ 258p Cape develops intelligent solutions for industrial services. Last months share Toumaz Holdings bought at 10p now 9.25p

He spoke for almost an hour on his plans for a Carbon Trading Tax for the UK and Europe. At the conclusion of his speech, the crowd presented him with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name - Walking Eagle. A very chuffed Tony then departed in his motorcade, waving to the crowds.. A news reporter later asked one of the Indians how they came to select the new name given to Tony Blair. They explained that Walking Eagle is the name given to a bird so full of s*** that it can no longer fly.

Profile Full Name: Janet Damita Jo Jackson Birthday: May 16, 1966 age: 46 sign: Taurus Birthplace: Gary, Indiana Marital status: Twice divorced Children: 0 Occupation: Singer / Songwriter Claim to fame: Sister of Michael Jackson Janet was the youngest of 10 children, and her parents were devout Jehovah’s Witnesses. Although born into a family of professional musicians, Janet was passionate about horses and wanted to become a jockey. When she was only eight years old, her father told her not to call him "Dad" anymore because he was her manager; he told her she would henceforth address him only as "Joseph". Janet’s debut album, “Janet Jackson,” pro-

director René Elizondo, Jr, in 1991. This only came to light when the couple divorced in 2000. "Scream," the song co-written in 1995 by Janet and Michael Jackson in response to the scandal surrounding Michael’s trial on charges of child sex abuse, is featured in the Guinness Book of Records as the "Most Expensive Music Video Ever Made." It cost $7 million, and won the 1995 Grammy for Best Short Form Music Video. In January 1996, Janet renewed her contract with Virgin Records for a reported $80 million dollars, which established her as the thenhighest p a i d recording artist in contempor a r y music, surpassing the $60 million dollar contracts earned by her brother, Michael, and Madonna. She made three feature films which debuted at number one in the box office list: Poetic Justice, Nutty Professor II: The Klumps and Why Did I Get Married? She is the only female artist in the history of the Hot 100 to have had 18 consecutive top ten hit singles, from "Miss You Much" (1989) to "I Get Lonely" (1998). She has won five Grammy awards in her career. Janet was voted one of the “10 Sexiest Women of 2001" by the readers of Black Men magazine.

LT Construction

Water Deposits Water deposits and tanks are a vital part of managing your water requirements in your home, as here in the Andalucian countryside, the mains water supply can often be cut for several days or the water pressure can fall to a mere trickle. Water tank application parameters include the general design of the tank, its materials of construction — ie reinforced fibreglass or reinforced concrete — as well as the following: - Location of the water tank (above ground vs. below ground)

- Volume of water the tank will need to hold, which will depend on the number of people in the house and the requirements for the garden. - Will the water from the tank be solely used for drinking and domestic use, or irrigation, or both? - Extremes of temperature in the area where water will be stored: eg if the tank is exposed to the sun, harmful bacteria can form more easily or at high altitudes, there is the potential risk of freezing. - Pressure requirements (domestic pressure range in the region of 35-60 PSI). The methods by which water is delivered into and extracted from the water tank, ie will a pump be required? - Design considerations allowing water tanks to survive seismic movement and natural land movement.- Filtration and back-flow prevention. As water tanks are essential for living in the countryside in Spain, it is important that they are installed correctly. Why not talk to LT Construction when considering a new tank or upgrading your existing system?

Ex est B e Th The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a movie about early old age. The characters in this latest film from John Madden have the sense that time is getting shorter, along with an awareness that the world might be passing them by. And as they are from a culture and an era that only values youth, they see no compensation in old age.

The film brings together a handful of people from various conditions of life and places them in a funky old hotel in the Indian city of Jaipur. Some of the residents are broke and think they might want to settle in India, where Western money goes far, while some are there for other

Based on a novel by Deborah Moggach, the screenplay takes a half-dozen stories and mingles them, yet each character’s through-line is effective on its own. There’s Tom Wilkinson, quite moving as a man who returns to India after forty years to seek out the lover of his youth. There’s Judi Dench as a grieving widow with money troubles. And Maggie Smith, as a former maid recovering from a hip replacement. Then there’s Penelope Wilton as a bitter, status-conscious woman who is so negative that she can’t escape it. Even when she tries to sound festive, something hostile or twisted comes out of her mouth. Bill Nighy plays her husband, who has clearly suffered years of abuse. The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is a reminder from movies that the grand emotions are not only for the young and the middle-aged. Star Rating - ****/*****

Fish & Chip Babies? From the Axarquia to Africa, with love Ever since an email between a couple of friends in Almeria only a couple of months ago, the Fish and Chip Baby Appeal in Andalucia has snowballed. Many who have not knitted for years have dug out their needles and stashes of wool, and individuals and groups have been knitting tiny jumpers and hats for babies in Africa. Many babies are born in extreme poverty in South Africa and Uganda. The mothers are often infected with HIV, which causes their babies to be born prematurely and already infected with the virus. Because these people are so poor, and the hospitals lack resources, the babies are wrapped in newspaper to try to keep them warm. They literally have nothing better for them to wear. This tragic situation led to the babies being called Fish and Chip Babies. Contrary to popular belief, even in Africa the nights are chilly and the babies are very vulnerable to pneumonia. A simple jumper and warm hat can help to protect them from contracting the disease, and may be the only gift a Fish and Chip baby will ever receive. At the time of writing, well over a hundred jumpers and hats have been made and donated, and a first consignment of sixty were sent off in the middle of May. The pattern is simple, and can be downloaded from the website, details below. As whites and p a s t e l colours are not practical for Africa, jumpers made of scraps of bright and dark colours are welcome, and a good way to use leftovers from bigger projects. An average knitter can complete a jumper and beanie hat in a day or so. “It’s not just

people who can knit who have been helping,” says Lynn Murrell, who is co-ordinating the appeal in the Axarquia area. “We have local businesses who are acting as drop-off points for finished garments and volunteers who are willing to transport the clothing. A lady who saw some of us knitting gave us €10 to buy more wool, and the owner of a wool stall on a market gave us a discount when she knew what the wool was for.” “Knit Outs,” where groups of knitters convene outside bars, has helped to publicise the appeal, but as the weather becomes hotter, knitting is more comfortable indoors. “It’s nice to get together with others to chat and knit, and those who are confident knitters can help those who are not so sure of what they are doing,” says Lynn. “If you don’t know of a local knitting group, and prefer not to knit alone, why not invite anyone who is interested to get together and start one? Local email news groups are great for that sort of thing. One lady has contacted us already and is interested in starting a group which could be anywhere from Torre del Mar to Colmenar, her name is Sue and she can be contacted on 618 938 770” Donations of finished garments, double knitting wool or acrylic, size 8 (4mm) knitting needles or cash are very welcome and can be dropped off at Sands & C on the Paseo Maritimo at Torrox or Todo Papel in Cómpeta. Anyone who would like to get involved, in whatever capacity, can find information on the website - or contact Lynn by emailing her at

Random Jokes David Cameron was visiting a primary school and the class was in the middle of a discussion about words and their meanings. The teacher asked Mr Cameron if he would like to lead the discussion on the word 'Tragedy'. So the the Prime Minister asked the class if they could think of an example of a tragedy. A little boy stood up and said, 'If my best friend is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy.' 'Incorrect,' said Cameron, 'that would merely be an accident.' A little girl stood up and said 'If a school bus carrying thirty children drove over a cliff, killing everybody inside, that would be a tragedy.' 'I'm afraid not', said Cameron, 'That's what we would call a great loss'. The room went silent. No other kid volunteered. Cameron searched the room. 'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of a tragedy?' Finally, little Johnny raised his hand from the back of the class and said, 'If a plane carrying you and Mr Clegg and Mr Milliband was hit by a missile and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy.' 'Fantastic!' exclaimed Cameron. 'And can you

tell me why that would be a tragedy?' 'Well,' said little Johnny, 'It has to be a tragedy, because it wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be a f****** accident either.' ------------------------------------------------------------She was standing in the kitchen, preparing our usual soft-boiled eggs and toast for breakfast, wearing only the 'T' shirt that she normally slept in. As I walked in, almost awake, she turned to me and said softly, “You’ve got to make love to me this very moment!" My eyes lit up and I thought, "I am either still dreaming or this is going to be my lucky day!" Not wanting to lose the moment, I embraced her and then gave it my all; right there on the kitchen table. Afterwards she said, "Thanks," and returned to the stove, her T-shirt still around her neck. Happy, but a little puzzled, I asked, "What was that all about?" She explained, "The egg timer's broken." ------------------------------------------------------------Iraqi terrorist Khay Rahnajet didn't pay enough postage on a letter bomb.

s n g i S r Sta We glide into the month of July with Ms Mag’s sweet song of your life store room for the coming month. Capricorn – You are feeling stuck in a boring old rut. It is time you spread your wings and fly out to find new horizons and adventures. Lucky sign – A golden eagle Aquarius – Beds are for sleeping in not jumping on. If you want a trampoline then make your way to a children’s play area and eat your heart out, oh crazy jumping one. Lucky sign – A hyperactive frog Pisces – Who gave you their blessing to eat all the cookies in the jar? It certainly wasn’t anyone else in your household or a voice from above. You had better restock that jar before anyone else finds out. Lucky sign – Crumbs Aries – Lemons have a bitter taste and right now so do you. Where has the sweet person gone amidst this web of horror? Start to feel happy and your true nature will re-emerge. Lucky sign – A pack of tissues (with balm). Taurus – Life’s a bitch isn’t it? Well actually you’re wrong. Life is a wonderful chance to create peace and harmony around those we love. Rethink your strategy and life will be amazing. Lucky sign – Rose petals Gemini – Love is waiting around the corner, in a black Volkswagen Gulf, 5 doors, diesel, a/c, alloy wheels, parked on a mountain top. Go seek it!

Lucky sign – Anything red Cancer – Spend some time pondering the word ‘Dormitory.’ Yes, it is an anagram for ‘Dirty room,’ so get cleaning! Lucky sign – A magic wand Leo – Hello moto! Brooooom Vroom, your new machine is all geared up for life in the fast lane and it’s revving up a real treat. Lucky sign – Dust (left behind) Virgo – Your life has taken an interesting turn, but there’s something nagging away in your head anxious to discover what is around the next corner. Lucky sign – Dizziness Libra – Do not be deceived. A man reaps what he sows. Be careful what you reap as if your plan involves elements of nastiness or trickery, it is likely to backfire. Lucky sign – Jive bunny Scorpio – You are discovering the vast joys of the internet and the amount of potential for creating a steady flow of income in return for little effort. Log on baby! Lucky sign – @ Sagittarius – Accept defeat and move on to your next game. You seem to like playing, but not losing. Lucky sign – Yahtzee!

) : a h a h s e k o J Woman takes a lover home during the day while her husband is at work. Her 9 year old son comes home unexpectedly, sees them and hides in the bedroom cupboard to watch. Just after getting into bed the woman's husband also comes home unexpectedly, she tells her lover to hide in the cupboard, not realising that the little boy is in there. After a little while the little boy says, 'Dark in here.’ The man, who obviously got a real fright not expecting to hear anything, let alone from a little boy says, 'Yes, it is.' Boy - 'I have a football.' Man - 'That's nice.' Boy - 'Want to buy it?' Man - 'No, thanks.' Boy - 'My dad's outside.' Man - 'OK, how much?' Boy - ‘250€' In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the lover are in the cupboard together. Boy - 'Dark in here.' Man - 'Yes, it is.' Boy - 'I have football boots.' The lover, remembering the last time, asks the boy, 'OK How much this time?' Boy - ‘750€' Man - 'Sold.' A few days later, the boys' father says to the boy, 'Grab your boots and football, let's go outside and have a game of soccer. The boy says, 'I can't, I sold my ball and boots.' The father asks, 'How much did you sell them for and to who?' The boy says, 'To a friend of mine for a 1,000€.' The father says, 'That's a terrible thing to do, overcharging your friend like that'. That's four times what they cost when they were new, I'm going to take you to church and make you confess your terrible sins.' They go to the church and the father makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and he closes the door. The boy says, 'Dark in here'.. The priest says, 'Don't start that crap again you

little bastard, you're in my cupboard now!!’ ------------------------------------------------------------A six year old goes to the hospital with her mother to visit her Grandpa. When they get to the hospital, she runs ahead of her mother and bursts into her Grandpa's room ...."Grandpa, Grandpa," she says excitedly, "Make a noise like a frog as soon as my mother comes into the room!" "Why?" said Grandpa. "Because my Mum said that as soon as you croak, we're all going to Disneyland!" ------------------------------------------------------------An Irish man is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk, when he comes upon a preacher baptizing people in the river. He proceeds into the water, subsequently bumping into the preacher. The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, whereupon, he asks the drunk, "Are you ready to find Jesus?" The drunk shouts, "Yes, oi am." So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water. He pulls him back and asks, "Brother, have you found Jesus?" The drunk replies, "No, oi haven't found Jesus!" The preacher, shocked at the answer, dunks him again but for a little longer. He again pulls him out of the water and asks, "Have you found Jesus, me brother?" The drunk answers, "No, oi haven't found Jesus!" By this time, the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk again -- but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds, and when he begins kicking his arms and legs about, he pulls him up. The preacher again asks the drunk, "For the love of God, have you found Jesus?" The drunk staggers upright, wipes his eyes, coughs up a bit of water, catches his breath, and says to the preacher, "Are you sure this is where he fell in?" ------------------------------------------------------------Q. What do you call a 27 year old Liverpool girl? A. Granny.

Jokes h a h a :) A husband is at home watching a football match when his wife interrupts, 'Honey, could you fix the light in the hallway it's been flickering for weeks now?' He looks at her and says angrily, 'Fix the lights now? Does it look like I have 'Powergen' written on my forehead? I don't think so!' 'Fine!' Then the wife asks, 'Well then, could you fix the fridge door? It won't close right' To which he replied, 'Fix the fridge door? Does it look like I have 'Indesit' written on my forehead? I don't think so!' 'Fine!' she says 'Then you could at least fix the steps to the front door? They are about to break' 'I'm not a carpenter and I don't want to fix steps', he says, 'Does it look like I have 'Taylor Woodrow' written on my forehead? I don't think so! I've had enough of this, I'm going to the pub!!!!' So he goes to the pub and drinks for a couple of hours. He starts to feel guilty about how he treated his wife, and decides to go home as he walks into the house he notices that the steps are already fixed. As he enters the house, he sees the hall light is working and as he goes to get a beer, he notices the fridge door is fixed. ‘Honey’, he asks, 'How'd all this get fixed?' She said, 'Well, when you left I sat outside and cried. Just then a nice young man asked me what was wrong, and I told him. He offered to do all the repairs and all I had to do was either go to bed with him or bake a cake.' He said, 'So what kind of cake did you bake?' She replied, 'Hellooooo.., do you see 'Mr Kipling' written on my forehead? I don't think so!' ------------------------------------------------------------Tiger Woods and Stevie Wonder are in a bar. Tiger turns to Stevie and says, "How's the singing career going?" Stevie replies, "Not too bad. How's the golf?" Woods replies, "Not too bad, I've had some problems with my swing, but I think I've got that right, now."

Stevie says, "I always find that when my swing goes wrong, I need to stop playing for a while and not think about it. Then, the next time I play, it seems to be all right." Incredulous, Tiger says, "You play GOLF?" Stevie says, "Yes, I've been playing for years." Tiger says, "But -- you're blind! How can you play golf if you can't see?" Stevie Wonder replies, "Well, I get my caddy to stand in the middle of the fairway and call to me. I listen for the sound of his voice and play the ball towards him. Then, when I get to where the ball lands, the caddy moves to the green or farther down the fairway and again I play the ball towards his voice." "But, how do you putt?" asks Tiger. "Well", says Stevie, "I get my caddy to lean down in front of the hole and call to me with his head on the ground and I just play the ball toward his voice." Tiger asks, "What's your handicap?" Stevie says, "Well, actually -- I'm a scratch golfer." Woods, incredulous, says to Stevie, "We've got to play a round sometime." Stevie replies, "Well, people don't take me seriously, so I only play for money, and never play for less than $10,000 a hole. Is that a problem?" Woods thinks about it and says, "I can afford that; OK, I'm game for that ... $10,000 a hole is fine with me. When would you like to play?" Stevie Wonder says, "Any night you want." ------------------------------------------------------------Father O'Malley answers the phone. 'Hello, is this Father O'Malley?' 'It is!' 'This is the Internal Revenue Service. Can you help us?' 'If I can!' 'Do you know a Ted Houlihan?' 'I do!' 'Is he a member of your congregation?' 'He is!' 'Did he donate $10,000 to the church?' 'He will.'
