m Fro Ed... the I’m writing this month’s editorial from a little town called Polson, in Montana. It’s not the most luxurious town in the world. In fact, my boyfriend and I often jokingly describe it as “junky.” But, nevertheless, we are staying in a beautiful, Light-filled, spacious house overlooking Flathead Lake, which is located on an Indian reservation area. As summer approaches, every day that goes by we see something new on or around the lake. So far we’ve seen ducks, speedboats, eagles, and an eye-pleasing collection of other exotic looking birds. Montana is known as Big Sky, simply because in this part of America, one sees A LOT of sky, which is especially pretty on a sunny day when a few puffy clouds show up, or on a clear night when the stars seem even more abundant and sparkly than usual. However, with all that said, tomorrow we pack our bags and leave Montana for Sun Valley, Idaho. Sun Valley is an exclusive part of Idaho, popular with celebrities and film stars. Among those who have second homes in Sun Valley are Tom Hanks, Robin Williams, Arnold Schwartzenegger, and Demi Moore and Bruce Willis. Sun Valley is a popular tourist destination among Americans. It’s the place to be fit and healthy. There are numerous hiking trails, cycle paths, mountains, lakes, ski slopes, rivers and creeks. So I’m looking forward to doing lots of exercise during my time here. When I’m not exercising, I plan to continue writing more books, editing books for my clients, and seeing where The Light is led to continue shining its wisdom. I’ll share more of my adventures here next month…

A beautiful rainbow over Lake Vinuela sent in by Jan Baird. glad those rain clouds have gone now! if you have a photo you have taken around axarquia and would like it printed in this space email: sales@thesentinella.com tell us where the photo was shot and if you like we will publish your name too! 

Dream Car - A British man has created his own Jetsons-style bubble car - partly made out of junk and based on a design he sketched in the pub. Paul Bacon, 39, from Leicester, doodled the Jetsons-style vehicle before hand-building what he believes is the first bubble-top car made in the UK. Dubbed The Cosmotron, the amazing 140mph dream machine is partly made up of cleverly disguised household objects. The steering wheel has the top of a rocket firework in its centre and a circular shower drain on the mount. Elsewhere there are moisturiser bottletops on the rear grille, a central heating system which doubles as a fake radio and John Lewis salt and pepper pots sit atop the impressive engine. The streetlegal and taxed twoseater began life in 2011 when Mr B a c o n bought a used 1998 BMW Z3 to act as a base for his design. "As this is a unique car there were obviously no parts available for it so I had to make do with what I could find that fitted the bill," he said. Mr Bacon added: "I liked the idea of creating a moving sculpture. If you build a sculpture in your back garden maybe your friends and family see it. If it's a car then everyone sees it." Miracle baby - A US woman who gave birth the day after a two hour training run didn't even know she was pregnant. Trish Staine, 33, of Duluth, Minnesota, thought her back pain was down to training for a half marathon later this month. The mother of three says she hadn't put on any weight or felt any foetal movement - and her husband had a vasectomy. But after her back pain got worse and she was taken to hospital for a check-up, she was told she was about to have a baby. She was whisked to the delivery room and in what she said seemed like five minutes later, her daughter was born, weighing 6lb 6oz. The couple are to call their baby girl, who was born about five weeks premature, Mira - short for miracle.

De Cotta Law Spain’s New Mortgage Law –Helping home owners in arrears. By De Cotta Law The economic crisis has hit Spain particularly hard and the subsequent high unemployment and economic hardship in this country has led to record levels of mortgage arrears and evictions. The recent Law 1/2013 of May 14, for mortgage holders, is intended to respond to the growing demand to help home owners that are encountering issues with their repayments, and those that might be facing possible eviction. The new law is complex but it is fair to say that it goes someway to reversing the recent trend in evictions that have led to tragic suicides and instead begins to help home owners find a solution with their lenders that means they can stay in their homes. For example, the new law offers the potential to suspend immediately and for a period of up to two years evictions in cases in which the creditor (the bank) is awarded the residence of the debtor. This exceptional measure in reality refers to owners that are at risk of social exclusion. In order for home owners to take advantage of this protection, they need to meet a number of criteria. For example, these borrowers even in negative equity, would need to continue to make some payment based on a minimum interest rate. In addition, this revised law means: • The law establishes a limitation for setting default interest, which may not exceed three times the legal interest and may only accrue on the outstanding capital. It prohibits the capitalisation of interest on arrears. •In the case of extrajudicial sale of the mortgaged property before a Notary, the sale must appear in the official gazette, so genuine bidders can make offers. •If it is considered in a court that the borrowers are being treated unfairly by their lender, the court will bring both parties to a hearing: •Costs are limited to 5% of the mortgage in arrears. •The home owner is now liable for no more than 50% of the debt of the mortgage. •For those wishing to bid for a property in arrears, the deposit is reduced from by 20% to 5%. • Once the auction is held and approved, the winning bidder has 40 days to deposit the rest of the price (previously 20). • If there are no bidders at the auction, at least 70% of the value of the mortgage must be cov-

ered where it is a primary residence. • The type of auction may not be less than 75% of the appraised value to be contained in the articles of incorporation of the mortgage loan. •The bank cannot foreclose unless the mortgage is at least 3 months in arrears. These measures are intended to make it fairer for the home owner to recover their situation in a time of crisis. It also gives home owners the right to negotiate with their bank to find a sustainable solution for their mortgage debt. The options for borrowers have been extended so that mortgage holders have the right to live in the property for two years, and pay 3% of the interest. These new measures are not applicable when there is an ongoing foreclosure proceeding and an auction date has already been agreed. For full details of the new mortgage law and how home owners can protect their rights, please contact De Cotta Law.

Got married last weekend. Wife knows everything.................. ------------------------------------------------------------Why we split up - She told me we couldn't afford beer anymore and I'd have to quit. Then I caught her spending $65 on make-up. So I asked, how come I had to give up stuff and not her. She said she needed the make-up to look pretty for me. I told her that was what the beer was for.

interesting Facts - Eritrea emerged from its long war of independence in 1993 only to plunge once again into military conflict, first with Yemen and then, more devastatingly, with its old adversary, Ethiopia. Today, a fragile peace prevails and Eritrea faces the gigantic tasks of rebuilding its infrastructure and of developing its economy after more than 30 years of fighting. The unresolved border issue compounds other pressing problems. These include Eritrea's inability to provide enough food; two thirds of the population receive food aid. Moreover, economic progress is hampered by the proportion of Eritreans who are in the army rather than the workforce. The constitution of Eritrea states "equality of all Eritrean languages", and therefore the country has no official language. Tigre and Tigrinya are spoken as first language by more than 80% of the population. Tigrinya and Arabic are the two languages used for official purposes. English and Italian are widely understood by people.

Y should I wash and iron my own clothes?

Y should I get a job? Y should I leave home and find my own place? Y should I get a car when I can borrow yours?

Y should I buy any food? Y should I do anything when I can get it all for FREE? But perhaps a cartoonist explained it most eloquently below...

Neil Armstrong In case you didn't already know this little titbit of trivia.... On July 20, 1969, as commander of the Apollo 11 lunar module, Neil Armstrong was the first person to set foot on the moon.

On July 5, 1995, in Tampa Bay, Florida, while answering questions following a speech, a reporter brought up the 26-year-old question about Mr. Gorsky to Armstrong. This time he finally responded because Mr. Gorsky had died, so Neil Armstrong felt he could now answer the question. Here is the answer to "Who was Mr. Gorsky":

His first words after stepping on the moon, "that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," were televised to earth and heard by millions. But just before he re-entered the lander, he made the enigmatic remark "Good luck, Mr. Gorsky." Many people at NASA thought it was a casual remark concerning some rival soviet cosmonaut. However, upon checking, there was no gorsky in either the Russian or American space programs. Over the years, many people questioned Armstrong as to what the - 'good luck, Mr. Gorsky' statement meant, but Armstrong always just smiled.

In 1938, when he was a kid in a small mid-western town he was playing baseball with a friend in the backyard. His friend hit the ball, which landed in his neighbour's yard by their bedroom

His neighbours were Mr. and Mrs. Gorsky. As he leaned down to pick up the ball, young Armstrong heard Mrs. Gorsky shouting at Mr. Gorsky, "Sex! you want sex?! You'll get sex when the kid next door walks on THE MOON!" The place and people fell about!!!

Air Conditioning - The Facts! Using the latest advancements in inverter technology, modern air conditioners are both quieter to run and more economical to operate than conventional on/off AC units. air conditioning - is it really that expensive to run these days? An air conditioner described as using "inverter technology” has the ability to continuously control its thermal transfer rate (cooling) by modifying the compressor's speed in response to the amount of cooling required. This gives much better efficiency and costs as little as 8cts/hr to run. The old type of on/off machines run at a constant 100% capacity as soon as they are switched on. re-gas - what’s all that about then? An air conditioning system uses a gas or liquid called a refrigerant to enable cooling and heating of your home. Over time, this refrigerant can leak from the system and will need to be replaced, or you will not get peak performance. The usual sign of this will be if the machine is not cooling very well. Equally, if too much refrigerant is added, the same problems can occur -- beware of unqualified technicians who use just a bottle

and gauges when refilling. The only way to know how much gas is in a system is to take it out with specialist equipment to weigh it! Regular or annual servicing of AC systems will detect a shortfall or even overfill. We at Polar Air pride ourselves in “re-gassing” AC correctly and to F-GAS 2079 international standards. Does my aC really need a service? Ask yourself the following:- Do you want to breathe in cleaner air? - Do you want to help the longevity of your AC unit? - Do you want to improve its efficiency and therefore reduce running costs? - Does the air flowing out of the machine smell? - Has it stopped cooling or heating to a satisfactory temperature? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes” then your system needs a service. Regular servicing (once or twice a year depending on usage) can help with all the above and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. Look out for the special offers from Polar Air. See main advert opposite.

It has eight testicles. (kelly, age 6) 2) If you are surrounded by ocean, you are an island. If you don't have ocean all round you, you are incontinent.

(Christopher, age 7) 8) When you go swimming in the ocean, it is very cold, and it makes my willy small. (kevin, age 6)

4) - A dolphin breaths through an asshole on the top of its head. (Billy, age 8)

9) Divers have to be safe when they go under the water. Divers can't go down alone, so they have to go down on each other. (Becky, age 8)

5) My uncle goes out in his boat with 2 other men and a woman and pots and comes back with crabs. (Millie, age 6)

10) - On vacation my Mom went water skiing. She fell off when she was going very fast. She says she won't do it again because water fired right up her big fat ass. (Julie, age 7)

Here we bring you the final part on blood pressure. Treating High Blood Pressure You can take effective steps to lower your blood pressure with changes to your lifestyle and by taking medication. Your choice of treatment will depend on your blood pressure level and your risk of developing a cardiovascular disease, such as a heart attack or stroke. If your blood pressure is slightly above 130/80mmHg but your risk of a cardiovascular disease is low, you should be able to lower your blood pressure by making some changes to your lifestyle. If your reading is moderately high 140/90mmHg or above and you’re at risk of cardiovascular disease in the next 10 years, treatment will involve medication and lifestyle adjustments. If your reading is very high 180/110mmHg or above you will need treatment soon, possibly further tests, depending on your health. Lifestyle changes Cut your salt intake to less than 6g (0.2oz) a day. Eat a healthy, low-fat, balanced diet, including plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables. Be active. Cut down on alcohol. Stop smoking. Lose weight. Drink less coffee. Try relaxation therapies.

Medication - There are a wide range of bloodpressure-lowering medications to choose from. You may need to take more than one type of medication because a combination of drugs is sometimes needed to treat high blood pressure. In some cases you may need to take medication for the rest of your life. However, if levels remain under control for seven years, you might be able to stop the treatment. the most widely used medications are: aCE inhibitors - Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors reduce blood pressure by reducing your blood vessels. Calcium channel blockers - They keep calcium from entering the muscle cells of the heart and blood vessels. This widens your arteries and reduces your blood pressure. Beta Blockers - These work by making your heart beat more slowly and with less force. alpha Blockers - These work by relaxing your blood vessels, making the blood easier to flow through them. Visit your GP as soon as possible if you find that you have any of these symptoms.

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts Skin so summer by Teri Spears-Ball Summer is finally here and it’s time to get the shorts on and show those legs off. Woohoo! But wait, does the thought of revealing those pasty white, Pilsbury dough-boy legs with peeling skin fill you with panic? After spending months clad in boots, trousers and woolly socks, our legs need some serious TLC, and here’s where it starts. Follow these three simple steps to smooth, glowing legs that you won’t want to hide until October. 1. The first step is to de-fuzz. Whether you wax, shave or use depilatory cream, do it now. Few things are less glamorous than hairy legs, feet and toes -- unless you are a bloke, of course! Be gentle though -- nicks and scabs where you have cut yourself are equally unattractive. 2. Next, you must exfoliate. That dry flaky skin wants to leave your body, so slapping moisturiser on top is a futile exercise; you will still have that dry flaky skin the next day. Use an exfoliant which you like -- it needn’t be an expensive brand. Don’t be tempted to scrub hard with exfoliant. Think of your skin as being like the paintwork on a new car. When we are young it is polished and pristine, but like a car, through life we acquire a few dents and scratches. Every time you use anything very abrasive on the skin, you are scratching the surface, so be gentle. You wouldn’t take a Brillo pad to a brand new Ferrari -- although I do know of someone who did just that and it cost him £6000 for a respray! We cannot respray our skin, so use just enough pressure to remove dirt and dead skin cells. Moisten the skin first and use a gentle circular action, starting on your feet and working up to the top of your legs. Rinse off well, and pat skin dry with a towel. Body brushing is another good way to remove dead skin, and it improves circulation and skin tone. Use the brush on dry skin, then rinse and pat dry. 3. Next step -- and I cannot emphasise this enough -- is to moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. Almost everyone tells me that they can’t get a tan on their legs, and the answer is be

Health Watch

cause the skin is dry. If your skin is dry, it will NEVER tan, period. The same applies to the whole body. Many people don’t use any sun tan lotion on the legs because they believe it prevents them from getting a tan. WRONG! It is far more likely that the skin will burn. Remember, dry skin burns, moisturised skin tans. If you have followed the first two steps, you can now slap on moisturiser as often as you like, and sun tan lotions should be applied every couple of hours, even if you are not in direct sunlight. A fake tan is a good way to achieve a glow quickly, or use a moisturiser with a hint of a tan, or get a spray tan, and you’ll be beach ready! Top tip for summer: now that it is hot hot hot, find a corner of the fridge for your cleanser, toner and moisturiser, or cleansing wipes. Moisten cotton wool pads with toner and keep in a small plastic container, ready to use. Absolute bliss to use on a hot day. Keep lip and eye pencils, and lipstick, in the fridge as well to stop them melting in July and August.

Copying From Copies! The result of making copies from copies.... The new monk is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand. He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript. So, the new monk goes to the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

His forehead is all bruised and he is crying uncontrollably. The young monk asks the old abbot: "What's wrong, father?" With a choking voice, the old abbot replies: "The word was...

The head monk, says: "We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son" Then, he goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn't been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot. So, the young monk gets worried and goes

Are You Living With A Wolf?? Bought to us by Tina from Happy Hounds. Long before we humans populated the earth, packs of canids -- wolves, dogs, jackals, coyotes and foxes -- were already here. All these animals have one important trait: the configuration of their teeth is similar in all of them. Some of the broadly-accepted views about the origin of our domestic dog are:

You might think your dog understands every word you say, they do not, they might hear a word they are familiar with and respond to the tone of your voice. I will go into more detail next month commands and how to get your dog to respond to you. If you have a topic that you would like covered or a specific question please email Tina on: thesentinellachristina@gmail.com

Dogs are descended from wolves and jackals, and go back to a crossing between these two animals. The theory which supports that comes from scientific comparisons of the teeth and blood proteins of wolves and dogs, and we know humans had contact with dog-like animals in the Paleolithic period. Early cave paintings have shown us evidence that humans hunted with dogs and the animals lived with the humans. Because of their adaptability, dogs were able to adjust to humans and their way of life in a manner unequalled by any other creature. Humans would have found the dog’s talents for scenting, guarding, hunting and herding of great use to them and dogs would have enjoyed the food given to them, together with a warm place by the human’s fire to sleep. So our great relationship with dogs began! If we are living with a descendant of the wolf l think it is our responsibility to understand dogs as dogs, forgetting the centuries of cross breeding that have provided us with the many breeds we now have for companionship, working ability and intelligence. However, whether they are big or small – dogs are still wolves! To understand our dogs, it makes sense to go back to where they began and understand wolves: the structure of the pack, the roles the Alpha male and female have, the way they organise, interact, educate and discipline, so they all know their place and work as a team. To learn how to understand and communicate with a dog, watch a wolf -- their use of facial expressions, body language and vocalisations. Our dogs today react to our body language, facial expressions and voices -- not so much what we say, but the way we say it; dogs do not speak our language. We can teach them by changing the tone of our voices when giving commands.

New Mum in Town - Baby’s 1st Bike Ride So, 16 months and summer is nearly here! But it hasn't half been windy! Jazmín is now at nursery every day for a couple of hours, and her list of baby vocab is growing mainly in English! Baby girl's favourite word is Teta/tetita, she just loves to shout it wherever she may be; the joy that brings to passers-by, they never tire of it.. You can imagine my horror, however, one afternoon on our beach trip when there were two (pert) ladies sunbathing topless. Horror number 1: Remembering my -- once pertiness -sigh. Horror number 2: Little J spots them and stops in her tracks. She yells "TETA" and lovingly stares (luckily ‘nearly’ toddlers can get away with a vacant stare). Drool puddles began to form and she started to march over. OH NOOOO! I jumped to my feet and grabbed her as quick as I could, before she latched onto those innocent, non-breastfeeding bosoms! So, Mummy and baby have a new summer toy. A bike with a baby bike seat. Spanish summer means no available parking and half hour delays anywhere in town, so it really is the perfect solution - and Mummy's quick bikini body fix (here's hoping).

The wind has finally died down, the bike has been fitted with a basket (for all those baby essentials) and we both have our ever-soattractive helmets. Jazmín is in her seat, and I have figured out how to get on and off -- and indeed cycle -- without either one of us falling (just about). Note to self: confidence is KEY when cycling with a baby! It's time...our first bike ride together...ready, steady, go... I had envisioned us cycling along the beach, a breeze keeping us cool, all smiles, all giggles. It didn't quite start off that way. In fact, Jazmín was crying and I was huffing and puffing (it seems that exercise has become quite alien to me), which also meant sweating and glowing... nice! However once the initial shock had subsided, we both settled and relaxed into the ride. My happy vision of a happy Mummy/baby bike ride came true :) What a great feeling! Surely, I am the luckiest Mama in the world - I get as much time as I want with my baby girl, and I get to enjoy moments like this every day. It makes all the hard times -- the sleep deprivation, the constant washing and cleaning -- worth it. Motherhood is, most definitely, the best job. More next month...

Bananas aren’t just an appetising fruit – they can also be good for your health.

the affected area can be successful at reducing swelling and irritation. NErVEs: Bananas are high in B vitamins which help calm the nervous system.. ULCErs: The banana is used as a dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture and smoothness. It also neutralises over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.

ENErgY: Bananas contain three natural sugars -- sucrose, fructose and glucose – and combined with fibre, give an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Just two bananas can provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout.

tEMPEratUrE CONtrOL: Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit that can lower both the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand, for example, pregnant women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.

DEPrEssiON: Bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein which the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

So, the banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. It has four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals of an apple! It is also one of the best value foods around.

PMs: The vitamin B6 a banana contains regulates blood glucose levels, which can affect your mood.

Maybe it’s time to change the well-known phrase to, 'A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!'

aNaEMia: Bananas are high in iron and so can stimulate the production of haemoglobin in the blood.

WOOD FOR SALE AND DELIVERY

BraiN POwEr: This potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more alert. CONstiPatiON: Since bananas are high in fibre, they can help restore normal bowel action. haNgOVErs: One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweetened with honey. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted blood sugar levels. The milk soothes and re-hydrates your system. hEartBUrN: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body. MOrNiNg siCkNEss: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and avoid morning sickness. MOsQUitO BitEs: Rubbing a banana skin on

Film Review The Trip Playing loose versions of themselves, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon reprise their hilariously fictionalized roles from Tristam Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story and reunite with acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom for an acerbically witty, largely improvised ride through the English countryside. Tapped by The Observer to review fine restaurants throughout the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, Steve finds himself without a traveling companion after his girlfriend decides not to go at the last minute. After being turned down by everyone else he knows, Steve extends an invitation to Rob, and together the pair attempt to navigate the winding back roads of rural England, impersonating popular celebrities such as Michael Caine, Woody Allen and Liam Neeson (among many others) and bickering along the way.

Sayalonga

To me the name seems to conjure up images of the Marlon Brando film Sayonara and on visiting its famous circular cementary I almost expected to see the graves of Kelly and Katsumi, forever together after their final Sayonara! (but that is the romantic in me!) Leaving behind Hollywood of the 1950´s and zooming full speed ahead into the year 2013 we discover that Sayalonga has stayed pretty much as it was during Arab rule with the Mudejar-style Church of Santa Catalina, which was built in the XVI Century on the site of an old mosque and the 90,000 litre water tank El Ventorillo del Aljibe. One of the most important Arabic poets Mohamed Al-Hasmi, who wrote a poem about Mecca, was born at the Arab settlement, Batahiz, the ruins of which can still be seen beside this water tank. Other places of interest in this village that has been twinned with Piaggine in Italy, are the Ermita of San Cayetano, situated next to the church. There is a statue of the saint inside the Ermita which is thought to have been built around XVII. However, Sayalonga´s real claim to fame is the aforementioned circular cemetery, possibly the only one of its kind in Spain. Apparently it has more than 3,000 visitors a year making it one of the most visited architectural monuments in the Axarquía. To find out more about this incredible place, go to the Tourist Of-

AS2357

fice and ask for the key to the Interpretation Centre which can be found at the entrance to the cemetery, it gives the history and origins of the construction. A good place to take a photograph of the cemetery is from the Mirador, on the road leading down the hill at the beginning of the village, you cannot miss it as you drive down from the direction of Cómpeta. Another fame to claim in Sayalonga is the street of La Alcuza which is the narrowest to be found in the Axarquía at only 55cm at its closest point! It is situated near the Plaza de la Constitution by the tourist office and church. The village is quite small, so you won´t get lost! Before you leave, do visit the Fountain of Cid. It provided the main supply of water to the Arabs and was named for El Cid Campeador, (real name Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar) a Castilian nobleman, military leader and diplomat who conquered and governed the city of Valencia, but not before having drunk of the water in Sayalonga! The village is situated just 9 kilometres up the hill from Algarrobo Costa, 41 kilometres east of Malaga, it is on the Axarquía route of Sun and Wine. A good day to visit, if you like the sweet and sour Nispero (the paradise fruit of the Axarquía) is the first Sunday of May when the fruit is harvested and a good time is had by all, or another festival is on 7th October when the Patron Saint of Sayalonga, La Señora del Rosario, is given thanks for the years harvest. Whenever you visit the village you will be given a warm welcome by the locals and there are plenty of bars and restaurants where you can sit and while away the afternoon before saying Sayonara to Sayalonga and driving back down the mountain to the motorway at Algarrobo.

Right now, I’m feeling a little unsettled. Here I am, in the middle of the United States of America, far away from my home in Spain, and I’m having to exercise faith and trust, both of which are topics widely explored in The Light: A Book of Wisdom. A few days ago my boyfriend and I heard that we’ll be homeless as of Sunday, no longer able to stay in the house where we were previously living. That means we have just four more days to find the perfect abode. Yesterday, as we were looking, I saw a 333, a rainbow and a white butterfly, all of which are signs I look out for to show that Spirit is with me and that I’m on the right path. So, even though I have no doubt that come Sunday we’ll have a place to live, there’s still that inner feeling of anxiety. Plus, it’s kind of nice to feel settled, especially when I’m used to a daily meditation, chanting and yoga routine, a very healthy diet, plus many business and book related plans to spark into action. We all go through these periods in our life, where having faith is the key, and the lesson is always the same. Trust God. Have faith. Look out for the signs. Know that you’re looked after and that everything will be ok. All is well. You are safe. Take these messages with you throughout every ‘today’ and watch the miracles begin to happen. The Light is always with you!

Lake Vinuela Social Club

Lake Vinuela Social Club held a BBQ at Scirocco's chill out bar Puente don Manuel on the 30th May. It was attended by 31 members who brought their own food and drinks, the talented BBQ chefs Chris Morton and Harvey Blair cooked the food to perfection. After all had eaten there were several egg and spoon races which were very scrupulous as some contestants seemed to be holding their eggs on with one thumb, then followed music and dancing by DJ David Lawrie, a surprise guest appearance by Alan Miles (Neil Diamond Tribute) finished the afternoon off with a good sing along.

We would like to thank Stuart and Debbie (Friends Bar) for the use of the Scirocco also Alan Miles for the great entertainment.

LT Construction Railway Sleeper Walls Railway sleepers are commonly used to create informal steps in gardens or to build raised flowerbeds and borders. However they can be very effective in retaining slipped banks or for the design of small retaining walls. Many properties in Spain are built on land which is inaccessible due to it being on steep slopes. A railway sleeper wall system is a relatively inexpensive solution which allows the landowner to access previously inaccessible space. This system also helps to create terraced slopes, offering a cheaper alternative to conventional walling. Because railway sleeper walls can be buried beneath the earth, landscape architects are afforded greater flexibility in the design of terraced banks. These newly-created spaces can be made ac-

cessible via paths and stairs and can also be populated with trees and plants to assist in stabilising the bank. Drainage -- using aggregates behind the wall and drainage pipes at the base -- is a vital component of any sleeper wall system. The longevity of this system has been proven time and time again. Even when the wooden sleepers have disintegrated, the concrete foundation and the effective drainage mechanisms remain intact. LT Construction would be pleased to conduct a survey of your land and suggest ways of making it more useable, accessible and visually appealing. Contact us for your free consultation on 659 324 586.

Up Up And Away!! Would you believe it all started with Kami and Keidi going for a flight in a hot air balloon with Graham and writing an article in The Sentinella. “If you are interested in joining Graham and his team give him a ring,” it read. “Are you interested” I asked him indoors…. ‘him’ who wouldn’t even go up in the cable car at Gibraltar for a wedding reception, and got a taxi up to the top instead. ‘Him’ who closes his eyes when we go over a bridge and drives on automatic pilot. “Yes,” he said and rang Graham. Well I fell about laughing. “Guess what” I told the family, “himself is going hot air ballooning.” We all fell about laughing, but the laugh was on us, because that is just what he did. Up he went in the balloon and was hooked. He came back from that trip with white knuckles, knotted insides and a desire to do it again and again and again, which he has done. He even joined the team for a balloon festival in Portugal and is off to Barcelona and Italy in July. Graham, the owner of the balloon, is a businessman in UK and has a home here in Spain. He not only balloons in the UK but all over Europe, including the Alps; one time he reached the dizzy heights of 25,000 feet. Me? “Never,” I said. “This is your hobby, not mine, so get on with it.” Get on with it he did and he is now one of Graham’s regular crew; he even roped in our friend Colin. Last week, Graham announced he was coming over and up they were going. Not enough

crew members as it was Colin’s first flight, so ‘himself’ wanted a navigator for the retrieving. “No, no, no” I said. He wore me down and away we went. We were up before the crack of dawn and when we all met up I couldn’t even get in the Landcruiser without a pull. After coffee at Antequera and a balloon had been let off to see which way the wind was blowing, the dawn had risen and off we went. Everyone went to their jobs while I stood around like the proverbial spare **** at a wedding. But I did take photographs. Off the balloon went. ‘Himself’ showed me the map and my heart sank. I know I will lose them, I thought. “If you shout at me, I will get in the back and you can retrieve yourself,” I said. Well he didn’t and off we went. First hamlet, couldn’t find the right road so had to double back and off we went again. It was great fun, trying to keep the balloon in our sight at the same time as watching where we were driving. We succeeded, but no thanks to the Spanish map system which was not up to date with the numbering of their roads. Eventually the balloon landed and all systems go again to pack it all back up and off for breakfast. This time I did make myself useful and lent a hand here and there, which was great but hard work.. We had a Spanish audience on the landing with a man and his son watching the whole performance. Am I hooked? Well put it this way, I will retrieve again, if asked and needed, but don’t think I will fly. But who knows?

) : a h a h s e k o J The year is 2222 and Charlie and Maureen land on Mars after accumulating enough Frequent Flier miles. They meet a Martian couple and are talking about all sorts of things. Charlie asks if Mars has a stock market, if they have laptop computers, how they make money, etc. Finally, Maureen brings up the subject of sex. 'Just how do you guys do it?' asks Maureen. The Martian responds, 'Pretty much the way you do.' A discussion ensues and finally the couples decide to swap partners for the night and experience one another... Maureen and the male Martian go off to a bedroom where the Martian strips... He's got only a teeny, weenie member about half an inch long and just a quarter-inch thick. 'I don't think this is going to work,' says Maureen... 'Why?' he asks. 'What's the matter?' 'Well,' she replies, 'it's just not long enough to reach me!' 'No problem,' he says, and proceeds to slap his forehead with his palm. With each slap of his forehead, his member grows until it's quite impressively long. 'Well,' she says, 'that's quite impressive, but it is still narrow.' 'No problem,' he says, and starts pulling his ears. With each pull, his member grows wider and wider until the entire measurement is extremely exciting to the woman. 'Wow!' she exclaims, as they fell into bed and made mad passionate love. The next day the couples re-join their other partners and go their separate ways. As they walked along, Charlie asks, 'Well, was it any good?' 'I hate to say it,' says Maureen, 'but it was wonderful. How about you?' 'It was horrible,' he replies. 'All I got was a headache ... She kept slapping my forehead and pulling my ears.' ---------------------------------------------------------------I was at an ATM yesterday when a little old lady asked if I could check her balance, so I pushed

her over! ---------------------------------------------------------------My girlfriend thinks that I'm a stalker. Well, she's not exactly my girlfriend yet. ---------------------------------------------------------------I woke up last night to find the ghost of Gloria Gaynor standing at the foot of my bed. At first I was afraid.......then I was petrified! ---------------------------------------------------------------Two Muslims have crashed a speedboat into the Thames barrier in London. Police think it might be the start of Ram-a-dam. ---------------------------------------------------------------Bought some 'rocket salad' yesterday but it went off before I could eat it! ---------------------------------------------------------------Murphy says to Paddy "What ya talkin to an envelope for?" "I'm sending a voicemail ya thick idiot!" ---------------------------------------------------------------Just got back from my mate's funeral. He died after being hit on the head with a tennis ball. It was a lovely service. ---------------------------------------------------------------Kevin walked into a doctor's office and the receptionist asked him what he had. Kevin said: 'Shingles.' So she wrote down his name, address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat. Fifteen minutes later a nurse's aide came out and asked Kevin what he had ... Kevin said, 'Shingles.' So she wrote down his height, weight, a complete medical history and told Kevin to wait in the examining room. A half hour later a nurse came in and asked Kevin what he had. Kevin said, 'Shingles' So the nurse gave Kevin a blood test, a blood pressure test, an electrocardiogram, and told Kevin to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor. An hour later the doctor came in and found Kevin sitting patiently in the nude and asked Kevin what he had. Kevin said, 'Shingles.' The doctor asked, 'Where?' Kevin said, 'Outside on the truck. Where do you want me to unload 'em??'

Jokes h a h a :) Baby bear goes downstairs, sits in his small chair at the table. He looks into his small bowl. It is empty. 'Who's been eating my porridge?' he squeaks. Daddy Bear arrives at the big table and sits in his big chair. He looks into his big bowl and it is also empty... 'Who's been eating my porridge?!?' he roars. Mummy Bear puts her head through the serving hatch from the kitchen and yells, 'For God's sake, how many times do I have to go through this with you idiots? It was Mummy Bear who got up first. It was Mummy Bear who woke everyone in the house. It was Mummy Bear who made the coffee. It was Mummy Bear who unloaded the dishwasher from last night and put everything away. It was Mummy Bear who swept the floor in the kitchen. It was Mummy Bear who went out in the cold early morning air to fetch The newspaper and croissants.. It was Mummy Bear who set the damn table. 'It was Mummy Bear who walked the bloody dog, cleaned the cat's litter tray, gave them their food, and refilled their water. 'And now that you've decided to drag your sorry bear-arses downstairs and grace Mummy Bear with your grumpy presence, listen carefully, because I'm only going to say this once....'I haven't made the f***ing porridge yet!’ ---------------------------------------------------------------A man brings his best friend back home for dinner. His wife screams at him, "My hair & makeup are not done, the house is a mess, the dishes are not done, I'm still in my pjamas & I can't be bothered with cooking tonight!

"Cause he's thinking of getting married." ---------------------------------------------------------------A man walks into a crowded local bar in Yarraminga brandishing a revolver yelling, "Who's the bastard that's been screwing my wife? " A voice from the back of the bar shouts back. "You don't have enough ammo mate!!" ---------------------------------------------------------------An Afghanistan diplomat visiting the US for the

first time was being wined and dined by the State Department. The diplomat was not used to the salt in American foods (French fries, cheeses, salami, anchovies, etc.) and was constantly sending his manservant Abdul to fetch him a glass of water. Time and again, Abdul would scamper off and return with a glass of water, but then came the time when he returned empty handed. "Abdul, you son of an ugly camel, where is my water?" demanded the diplomat. "A thousand pardons, O Illustrious One," stammered the wretched Abdul. "But a man is sitting on the well!" ---------------------------------------------------------------A couple were getting frisky in a field one glorious summer’s evening.

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of www.AbsoluteAxarquia.com ARIES: March 21-April 20 Arians are on top form this month, quick of mind and with good health and energy levels – a seductive combination. If you are single and wish for a relationship, a meeting during June´s third week is potentially full of sensitivity, passion and true love. TAURUS: April 21-May 21 A positive and productive period with peace, love, trust and harmony on the home front. Pay attention to safety and health issues, taking care to monitor any changes in the body. GEMINI: May 22-June 21 To achieve goals, dreams and ideals, Geminis´ mandate should be discipline, concentration and seriousness during July. During the second week of the month, a meeting with an older person will bring positive rewards. CANCER: June 22-July 22 Cancerians should avoid major changes this month and should not be discouraged by strict rules or criticism. Friends, relatives and colleagues may be unable to support as they are focused on other issues – try to be understanding as this will change. Bright green and white will inspire you. LEO: July 23-August 23 Cultivate patience during a month of work and slow progress. Your energy and mood can be improved with a sprinkling of rosewater and the use of sandalwood incense. Try to sleep well to aid much needed concentration and avoid suffering from a cold. VIRGO: August 24-September 22 Whilst demanding and potentially stressful, July is another lucky month for those

born as Virgo. Never-the-less, take care that your taste for life doesn´t outstrip your energy and financial resources. LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Unlike last month, July will be harmonious, serene and relatively easy for Librans, providing possessiveness is avoided – brown, white and natural tones will help. For single Librans, opportunities arise for a short, fun relationship. SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Beware of your natural difficulty in following rule, especially in the workplace and in routine within relationships. To avoid confrontation, pay attention to the needs of others at work and at home. SAGITTARIUS: November 22 December 21 Success, happiness and joy are indicated in your love life. If you are single, prepare to find your soul-mate. If in a relationship already, it will deepen. Check your diet is a healthy one. CAPRICORN: December 22 January 20 Keep expectations realistic and, despite small setbacks and minor problems, it will be a positive month. Maintain good communication in all that you do and life will be joyous this month. AQUARIUS: January 21-February 19 A great month for Aquarians, with less work and twice the benefits! Beware of temptation outside of your steady relationship and also of road accidents and incidents with work tools. PISCES: February 20-March 20 To make the most of July, be alert and aware of your opportunities in your work and social lives. A harmonious time for Pisces if you don´t let boredom get the better of you.
