m Fro Ed... the My extended holiday in Spain is coming to an end. I’ve been here since the middle of March and have enjoyed the Spanish sunshine, meeting friends, taking day trips to stunning locations, and seeing my family. By the time this magazine comes out I’ll be enroute back to the UK and from there I’m flying to LA to begin a whole new life adventure. When we arrive in LA, my husband and I are moving straight to the beautiful sacred town of Ojai (an hour and a half outside of LA, and close to Santa Barbara). It’s our intention that I’ll give birth to our baby in Ojai and set up a new life in the area. Because of the changes, and because for the time being I’m saying adios to España, there are some amazing opportunities in the air for readers: 1. I’m selling my 1-bed apartment in El Morche. It has recently been refurnished and repainted, and although it’s up for €80k, I may accept less. It’s a great starter home or coastal holiday home as it’s completely furnished and ready to move into. Email for more info. 2. I’d also consider renting out the apartment long-term for €300 a month. Again, email the address above if interested. 3. I’m selling my car – a Citroen C1 – 2006. It’s for sale for €3,000 and you’ll find a photo on the Trade Pages towards the back of this magazine. For those interested call my Dad, Patrick, on 675 391 967 who can arrange for you to see the car.

Pot hunters - Scientists believe they have found a pair of solid gold 'bongs' used by tribal elders 2,400 years ago to ingest mindaltering drugs. Tests on the two small cup-like objects found residue of cannabis and opium coating the inside. The artefacts were found during an excavation at a Scythian burial mound in southern Russia where the bucket-shaped 'drug paraphernalia' was found along with rings and bracelets. Scythians were a hardy, nomadic group from the Iran area who populated vast areas of the central Eurasian steppes around 2,500 years ago. But the scientific evidence garnered from the bongs also points to them liking to unwind with the occasional mind-altering illicit substance. Experts believe the tribal elders and warriors brewed a mixture of cannabis and opium in the vessels to celebrate victory in battle, or possibly to steel their courage beforehand. Anton Gass, an archaeologist at the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation in Berlin, said: “That both drugs were being used simultaneously is beyond doubt.” All fizzed up - A "very poor" harvest of Prosecco grapes could lead to a global shortage of the sparkling wine, a leading producer has warned. Lovers of the Italian bubbly, which has seen sales soar during the economic downturn, are being warned they could face a hike in prices of their favourite drink as demand threatens to outstrip supply. Robert Cremonese, Bisol export manager, told The Drinks Business trade publication that wine merchants, known as negociants, have been bumping up their prices by as much as 50% to take advantage of the situation. He said: "Last year's harvest was very poor, and down by up to 50% in some parts, so there is a very real possibility of a global shortage. "We'll find out how big the problem is in August when the brokers release their stock – at the moment we don't know how much Prosecco they're holding onto.”

Random Jokes

Can one parent freely change their country of residence with their children?

A German lorry driver in a pub in Newcastle is gobbing off how lazy British truck drivers are. He's bragging that he drives his load from Hamburg, goes through Holland, Belgium up to Newcastle and back to Hamburg in just two days.

This is an important question as moving to another country with your children without the agreement of both parents can have a disastrous effect. The failure to ensure you have an agreement or a Court Order before leaving the UK, Spain or your home country can result in a Hague Convention proceeding for Child Abduction. Sadly some parents think that they can apply for custody after they have moved to a new country or returned to their home country. However if you don´t have agreement about moving you must firstly apply to the courts in the country of your “habitual residence” for leave to remove the children. The European definition of residence for children is the country where they have school and friends and become settled. The younger the child the more quickly they will acquire a country of residence. For the parent who wishes to leave the country of habitual residence there is a heavy burden of proof to show that it is in the best interests of the children. In particular cases we have dealt with courts in San Sebastián, Denia and Ibiza we were able to show that the children would benefit because they were returning to their home country with good opportunities for education and where the family had a strong supporting network. The financial circumstances also need to be proved showing that the mother or father who has custody of the children can work or be better supported in the other country. Each case is different but in all cases it is important to propose or agree a proper programme of visits for the parent who does not have custody. This should also include telephone, email or Skype contact to ensure that moving country has a limited effect on the parental relationships with the children. As with many aspects of Family and Inheritance law prevention is always better than cure and it is definitely best to seek advice before changing your country of residence with your children. For more information contact or telephone 952 527014

This old Geordie man mutters up, "Ah, way ay I used to pick up me load in Newcastle, drop off in Hamburg and be back in Newcastle for a fish and chip supper the same day". The gobby German trucker said, " Oh yah, vot rig were you driving then?" After taking a long swig of his Pint of Newcastle Brown, the old fella replied.......... "A LANCASTER BOMBER!" ------------------------------------------------------------Driving home today, my wife was boasting about how good women are at multi-tasking, and how there's "No two things a man can do simultaneously that a woman can't". I just sat there, scratching my balls as I reversed onto the driveway!!

Top 10 Dumbest Criminals 10. Strike one! - England: A German "tourist," supposedly on a golf holiday, shows up at customs with his golf bag. While making idle chatter about golf, the customs official realises that the tourist does not know what a "handicap" is. The customs official asks the tourist to demonstrate his swing, which he does--backward! A substantial amount of narcotics was found in the golf bag. 9. "Hello? Guns for hire?" - Arizona: A company called "Guns for Hire" stages gunfights for Western movies, etc. One day, they received a call from a 47-year-old woman, who wanted to have her husband killed. She got 4-1/2 years in jail. 8. Say cheese! - A man successfully broke into a bank after hours and stole--are you ready for this?--the bank's video camera. While it was recording. Remotely. (That is, the videotape recorder was located elsewhere in the bank, so he didn't get the videotape of himself stealing the camera.) 7. Drop everything and run! - Two men tried to pull the front off a cash machine by running a chain from the machine to the bumper of their pickup truck. Instead of pulling the front panel off the machine, though, they pulled the bumper off their truck. Scared, they left the scene and drove home. With the chain still attached to the machine. With their bumper still attached to the chain. With their vehicle's license plate still attached to the bumper. 6. Just forget it - Virginia: Two men in a pickup truck went to a new-home site to steal a refrigerator. Banging up walls, floors, etc., they snatched a refrigerator from one of the houses, and loaded it onto the pickup.nThe truck promptly got stuck in the mud, so these brain surgeons decided that the refrigerator was too heavy. Banging up *more* walls, floors, etc., they put the refrigerator BACK into the house, and returned to the pickup truck, only to realise that they locked the keys in the truck--so they abandoned it. 5. Ouch - A man successfully broke into a bank's basement through a street-level window, cutting himself up pretty badly in the process. He then realised that (1) he could not get to the money from where he was, (2) he could not climb back out the window through which he had entered, and (3) he was bleeding pretty badly. So he located a phone and dialed "911" for help . . .

4. Let's do a little math - A man walked into a Circle-K (a convenience store similar to a 7-11), put a $20 bill on the counter and asked for change. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the man pulled a gun and asked for all the cash in the register, which the clerk promptly provided. The man took the cash from the clerk and fled-- leaving the $20 bill on the counter. The total amount of cash he got from the drawer? Fifteen dollars. 3. I know I forgot something - Indiana: A man walked up to a cashier at a grocery store and demanded all the money in the register. When the cashier handed him the loot, he fled-leaving his wallet on the counter. 2. You mean me? - A pair of Michigan robbers entered a record shop nervously waving revolvers. The first one shouted, "Nobody move!" When his partner moved, the startled first bandit shot him. 1. The Hefty-bag - A man went into a drug store, pulled a gun, announced a robbery, and pulled a Hefty-bag face mask over his head-and realised that he'd forgotten to cut eye holes in the mask.

Church Bulletin Mistakes Even with the help of The Almighty..... The service will close with "Little Drops of Water." One of the ladies will start quietly and the rest of the congregation will join in This afternoon there will be a meeting in the South and North ends of the church. Children will be baptised at both ends. The eighth graders will be presenting Shakespeare's "Hamlet" in the church basement on Friday at 7 p.m. The congregation is invited to attend this tragedy. Thursday night - Potluck supper. Prayer and medication to follow. Tuesday at 4:00pm there will be an ice cream social. All ladies giving milk please come early. This being Easter Sunday, we will ask Mrs. Lewis to come forward and lay an egg on the altar. Next Sunday a special collection will be taken

to defray the cost of the new carpet. All those wishing to do something on the new carpet will come forward and do so. The rosebud on the altar this morning is to announce the birth of David Alan Belzer, the sin of Rev. and Mrs. Julius Belzer. At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be "What is Hell?" Come early and listen to our choir practice. The preacher will preach his farewell message, after which the choir will sing, "Break Forth With Joy." Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our church and community. For those of you who have children and don't know it, we have a nursery downstairs. The Rev. Adams spoke briefly, much to the delight of his audience.

People Who Come And Go People who Come and Go – Who are They These Days??

economies in the EU and unemployment is almost 34% in Andalucía.

These days, so many of my clients ask me the same question – “why are all the Brits packing up and leaving Spain?” It is an interesting question. When I first started marketing and selling properties here in Southern Spain, back in 2000, it was the Brits who were buying in their droves, and very few other nationalities, and the vendors were almost all Spanish. Now, it is almost embarrasing when, whilst racing around the countryside with a Dutch, or a Scandinavian couple hunting for a house, I show them YET ANOTHER British owned home for sale - and then they ask that question!

But my British vendors all have something in common. A huge number came over 10 to 15 years ago, having just retired. They lived their dream of having a country home in the sun, they grew fruit trees, kept a donkey, fostered a stray dog or three, or just soaked up the sun! They also had a fabulous time, joining social clubs, dancing, walking and socialising! Hats off to them! Now, faced with what life throws at us as we get older, and with their families telling them to ‘please come home’ and stop ‘playing around in Spain’, they are forced to make a move. Not all sell to go back to the UK. Many are simply moving to the coast, or nearer the hospital or health centre. And a whole new generation of Brits, together with a much wider spectrum of adventuring sorts from all over Europe, brandishing fresh retirement papers, are eager to move in! It’s all a big cycle and long may it rotate! By Toni Waterman

A recent Daily Telegraph article states that almost 90,000 Brits have left the country in the last year alone and town halls have seen a drop in the Padrón of 23% since January 2013. So are the Brits disillusioned? Has the sun got too much for them? It is certainly true that those who came over to set up businesses have frequently struggled, and that is no surprise, given that this is one of the most vulnerable

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts China’s New “Little Car”

Aka “The Highway Suppository”

and is not painted to save weight.

This is not a joke, they do sell for $600.00 and they won’t be able to make them fast enough. Here's a one seat car that will get you back and forth to work on the cheap.

The Most Economic Car in the World will be on sale next year: Better than the Electric Car – This is a singleseat car. From conception to production: 3 years and the company is in Hamburg, Germany. They will be selling for 4000 Yuan, equivalent to US $600..

This $600 Volkswagen's car gets 258 mpg, 109.687 km/l or 0.9 litre per 100 km!!! This $600 car is not a toy! Volkswagen did a lot of very highly protected testing of this car in Germany; it was not announced until now where the car would make its first appearance. The car was introduced at the VW stockholders meeting as the most economical car in the world!

Gas tank capacity = 1.7 gallons (6.4 Litres) Speed = 62 – 74.6 Miles/hour (100-120 kmph) Fuel efficiency = 258 miles/gallon (0.9L per 100km) Travel distance with a full tank = 404 miles (650km)

The initial objective of the prototype was to prove that 1 litre of fuel could deliver 100 kilometres of travel. Its Spartan interior does not sacrifice safety; the impact and roll-over protection is comparable to a GT racing car. The aero design proved essential to getting the desired result. The body is 3.47m long and just 1.25m wide, and a little over 1m high. The prototype was made completely of carbon fibre

Constant climates using the latest inverter technology Covering all the Axarquia region

Known for THE BEST CLIMATE IN EUROPE, Axarquia has some of the best weather conditions in the world. It isn’t any wonder that millions of people visit this beautiful area every year! The Mediterranean sea to the south and sheltered magnificent mountain ranges to the north, Axarquia sits within the Malaga Province of Andalucia. The following pages feature some of the beautiful towns and villages of this superb and picturesque area.

inhabitants 2,000 Level above sea 100 metres Nearest airport Malaga Distance to airport 37 km Distance to beach 14 km

Benamargosa is located in the river valley of the same name some 15 kilometres inland from Velez-Málaga on the costa del Sol and about a half an hour´s drive by motorway from Málaga. The valley is practically evergreen and almost like an oasis in summertime, due to the plantations of avocado and citrus fruits lining the river. The village centre is 90 metres above sea level and the hills rising up along the side of the river reach 550 metres. Thanks to the warm climate of the area, it is possible to achieve more than one harvest. Traditional vineyards are to be found in the hills surrounding the village, growing the famous Málaga grapes used to make the well known sweet wines of the region. The traditional cultivation of olives, almonds and carob is gradually being replaced by the mango.

Please mention The Sentinella when responding to adverts Comares

Comares is probably the most talked about and most seen (from afar!) village in the Axarquía. From almost wherever you are, you can catch site of Comares. It sits right on top of the mountain some 735m above sea level, 28km from Málaga and 24km from Vélez-Málaga. Steeped in history and like many Axarquía villages the Arab influence is very obvious, at least 3 streets have original Arab arches. The name originates from the arab word for castle, Qumarix. Due to it’s excellent location it was one of the Axarquía´s principle defence strongholds. It became the regional headquarters for Cútar, El Borge, Almáchar and Moclinejo during the 11th century and by the 15th century when Vélez fell to the Christians the last Moslem governor Mohammed el Jabis tried in vain to stop the invasion but in late 1487 Comares was taken. As you walk through modern day Comares you will notice blue ceramic footprints with arab motifs (crafted, I am told, by the woman of the village!) all along the pathways. These footprints lead through the narrow streets and when you see 2 footprints together they will be in front of a monument or a colourful ceramic plaque inviting you to stop and take notice! One of the interesting


places these footprints lead you to is the Plaza de los Verdiales, a monument to the Panda de Verdiales, not the black and white furry bear but a band of local men playing lively music. Comares even has its own style of verdiales and a statue of a typically dressed band member stands proudly in the square. One of the village shops is also in this square selling everything from bread to boots, milk to mouse traps! Being so high, the village has everything you need, chemist, doctors, municipal swimming pool, free internet etc. From this Plaza if you carry on walking up hill on Calle Iglesias you will come to the church of La Encarnación, built in 1505 using floor plans of an old mosque it has an eight sided tower. Whilst stopping to take a photo if you find yourself a bit peckish don´t worry because out of a nearby house will appear, like magic, a local woman who will drag you back in to sell you honey, raisins, almonds, and sweet homemade wine. Before you know it you will be several euros worse off but ladened with these local goodies. There are plenty of walking routes mapped out for you through the countryside if you still feel energetic or if the steep streets have taken their toll stop a while in the beautiful courtyard of El Molino de los Abuelos in the main square, or take lunch at the mayors bar, the Atalaya (Watch Tower) where you can enjoy a fabulous, inexpensive meal while taking in the fantastic views down to the coast. To really enjoy the views make sure you go on a clear day, in summer the skies are often hazy so autumn or winter is probably best.

The New Inheritance and Gift Tax Law The new law regarding Inheritance and Gift Tax in Spain intends to equalize the taxes paid by residents and non-residents. The Judgment made by the European Court of Justice on 3rd September 2014 implies a major change regarding the equality of the treatment of non residents and residents in matters of succession and gift taxes. Before the introduction of this new regulation, non-residents who inherited a property in Spain were taxed heavily as they were not considered eligible to receive the benefits applied to residents. This new regulation forces Spain to eliminate this difference, and does not allow discrimination of non residents in this situation. The European Court considers that the treatment of non-residents and residents was one-sided and unfair. The European Union asserts that the fundamental principle of free movement of capital between member states had been breached by this discriminatory treatment. Therefore, they deemed it necessary to modify the law in order to rectify the situation regarding Inheritance and Gift Law. The new Law means that non-residents will now benefit from all of the allowances previously only given to residents. This means that if you inherit a property in Spain, in the future, you as a non-resident will be required to pay only a minimal amount for Inheritance tax or, in some cases, nothing. The limit to be considered exempt from paying tax is 175,000 euro. This amount is reached taking into account a series of criteria, including, amongst others, the value of the property inherited. (Please note that each case is different, and there are exceptions). This change is a major step towards the total

inclusion of non-residents into the Spanish society. Every day more and more foreigners choose Spain as their base. It was a logical and wise decision for Europe to take this stance to equalize the fiscal situation and to eliminate any distinctions made between residents and non-residents in this country. If you find yourself implicated in any of the aforementioned issues please do not hesitate to contact us, or if you simply have doubts or questions we will be happy to arrange a free, no obligation appointment to resolve your queries.

Asbestos - Have You Been In Contact?

My name is Steve Woods and I am a solicitor based in Chester, UK, specialising in claims for asbestos-related diseases. I have been dealing with these claims for over 25 years and I aim to provide a professional but personal service. I often visit people in Spain and I have recently been to Mijas Costa, Benalmadena and Torremolinos We all know that as we get older, we can develop breathing problems. These problems can have a variety of causes but after investigations such as x-rays or scans, problems with shortness of breath can be attributed to exposure to asbestos. These investigations can show whether lung damage has been caused by smoking or exposure to asbestos – this can cause very serious illnesses: asbestosis, diffuse pleural thickening and mesothelioma (a cancer that attacks the protective lining of the lungs). It is not only workmen who have used asbestos themselves who develop these diseases, but also other men working in their vicinity or their wives and other family members who come into contact with their work clothes. It does not matter if the person involved has died – claims are still possible in certain circumstances. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related condition, has breathing problems and has come into contact with asbestos in the UK, please get in touch. You may be entitled to claim damages or benefits in the UK and I can help on a ‘no win no fee’ basis. A change in the rules now enables a solicitor to agree with his client to take a share of any

money recovered. A lot of solicitors now do this but I do not – because I believe my clients should receive in full whatever compensation I can obtain for them. I can also guarantee that all claims are dealt with by a qualified solicitor. I am happy to talk to anyone free of charge about their individual situation to see if a claim is possible. I can be contacted on 00 44 1244 340560 at or alternatively you can visit my website at

Absolutely Adorable 'World's smallest deer' gives birth to adorable fawn that makes Bambi look huge The southern Pudu deer species are known to be one of the smallest - and this tiny baby is no bigger than a small puppy.

Move over, Bambi - because the competition for the world's most adorable baby deer has just been won by this little fawn. The tiny male southern pudu, one of the world's smallest deer species, was born on May 12 at Queen's Zoo in New York.

Native to Chile and Argentina, the deer, which is currently no bigger than a small puppy, is one of just three of the tiny animals kept at the zoo. In the adorable pictures, the brown and white fawn is seen taking tentative steps through his enclosure as he explores the world around him. The cute male deer is currently feeding from his mother, but will eventually eat a diet of leaves, hay, carrot and grain. He will only grow to approximately 13 inches tall and his white flecks will fade as disappear as he ages. The tiny animals count owls, small cats, foxes and pumas among their main enemies.

Vampire Fish Why are giant toothed 'vampire fish falling from the sky'? Alaskan villagers were stunned to see it raining foot-long lamprey fish which look like something from your worst nightmares. Foot-long Arctic lampreys, which have five rows of sharp teeth, were found in gardens, streets and even a car park in Fairbanks. The fish, which is not sold locally nor is it found in nearby rivers, is giving people nightmares. Families are terrified of the bizarre creatures, which they are labelling 'vampire fish' or 'fish monsters.' Lamprey use their sharp rows of teeth to latch onto other fish by piercing through their scales before using its tongue to suck up their blood and fluids. While many fish die due to the severity of their injuries, some do survive. A quick-thinking shop owner who found a live lamprey in his car park measuring roughly 15 inches long managed to save it by keeping it in

a bucket of fresh water. But it was too late for another stunned man who found one lying dead in his garden. A spokesperson for the Alaskan Department of Fish and Game said: "This past week we received calls about arctic lamprey found in strange locations. "The local Value Village store found a live lamprey in their parking lot and placed it in a bucket of water. Another resident called and said he found one on his lawn! 4 lamprey were found on land so far. How is this happening?" They're born along muddy riverbanks, where they live for several years, before travelling to the ocean and return to fresh water to spawn.

Helping Axarquia Monthly Update Rental under scrutiny The Spanish Tax Agency is aware that not declaring income from property rentals is an abundant source of tax evasion. In recent years, an extensive programme of visits to properties has been conducted in order to detect potential breaches of tax obligations. In the last three years, 2125 properties have been visited for further investigation. In addition, the Tax Agency is requesting information from the internet platforms which are marketing these rentals. Tax officers consider that it is relatively easy to obtain information about these businesses. Contact with the intermediary is enough, since they have all the details. Then, visits to the apartments are conducted. When the rental is directly arranged with an individual, the situation is different. These cases are more difficult to detect. For 2015, the Tax Agency is making progress in developing new methods to gain information

about this type of business, mainly by locating software which could help track offers of properties for rent. For more information, please write to The information provided in this article is not intended to be legal advice, but merely conveys general information related to legal issues.

Moonwalking spook The ghost of the late singer Michael Jackson is apparently giving visitors to his house a ‘Thriller’ ride. The Neverland mansion is up for sale but viewers have been spooked by the King of Pop’s ghoul – which is said to moonwalk the corridors of the luxury pile in Los Olivos, California. And if the £66million price tag is not enough to scare off homeseekers, the spooky spectre may be. An estate agent source said: “Local people say Jackson’s spirit has been haunting his estate since he died. “Investors and visitors considering buying the property are warned that workers on the ranch have claimed the King of Pop haunts the premises.” Neighbour Marie Andrade, who regularly goes to the house, added: “Michael is there – his presence, his moves and his breath.” Kiss n tell Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams has allegedly threatened to ‘reveal Simon Cowell’s secrets’ if he gets fired from the show. The comedian, 43, has been a thorn in the side of TV’s “Mr Nasty” since he was signed up as a panellist. He has constantly made jokes about Cowell’s sexuality, his taste in clothes, his teeth, his skills as a pop manager and his ex-girlfriends, including Sinitta. And Walliams has made repeated references to the fact that the public voted for him – and not Cowell – as the nation’s favourite judge at the National TV Awards earlier this year. The TV music mogul, 55, has admitted that Walliams has become “a monster” and “an irritation”.

The Little Britain star has avoided the axe for four years and has even announced he will be back next year. But it seems there is a reason why he is being kept on board, because he let slip that he would write a book detailing Cowell’s secrets if he got the sack. Goodbye Lou TV’s Neighbours is to lose one of its iconic actors. Tom Oliver, who has played Lou Carpenter on the soap for 27 years, has decided to step down from after deciding to scale back his workload. However, bosses have confirmed that the 79year-old will continue to film guest stints on the Aussie soap. Rumours about Tom’s future on the show began circulating when Lou took grandson Bailey Turner to Queensland with him and the pensioner was subsequently removed from the opening titles. Tom scaled back role on Neighbours in 2009, filming two months at a time followed by a two month break.

But it was an eye-popping about turn for Kate, 37, who just months ago went under the knife for the seventh time to reduce her boobs. She was on hand to launch the UK edition of popular US talent show RuPaul’s Drag Race, on which her fellow former Big Brother housemate Michelle Visage, 46, appears . Kate took on a judging role alongside Jonathan Ross, 54, but she ensured all eyes were on her in a chequer-board monochrome number. Sad farewell CORRIE veteran William Roache has revealed how the cast were “on the verge of tears’’ filming Deirdre Barlow’s funeral because they are still upset by the loss of Anne Kirkbride The actress, who famously played Deirdre on the show for 40 years, died back in January aged 60 from breast cancer.


C el eb r New ity s

Producers liaised closely with her family to ensure they gave her character a “sensitive” and “fitting” exit from the soap. The Street will soon be rocked by the news that Deirdre has passed away after suffering a suspected brain aneurysm. Four months on since Anne’s funeral, the stars have been filming one for Deirdre too.

Meat The Dausage Jam doughnuts crossed with sausages coming to a BBQ near you!!!

The 37-year-old from Ammanford, Wales said, “I started thinking about what else could be crossed with a doughnut, and wondered if a sausage would work. “I began with pork with strawberry and cumberland with raspberry, and, contrary to many other people’s expectations, they worked really well together.” Current flavours in production also include pork and beef with custard, venison with strawberry custard and a vegetarian dausage filed with Primula cheese. He also makes dausage rolls.

The bizarre meat-treat food hybrid could be set for supermarket shelves after turning the heads of major retailers.The sickly-sounding food snack, which is filled with jam, is the brainchild of Liam Bennett who is turning the heads of major retailers with his barmy creation.

“I have had some interest for the idea from major retailers, but I need to get the recipe right as there is no machine for making them at the moment, so I am working on a Kickstarter campaign to raise money to develop just that, but in the meantime we are concentrating on our catering.”

Inspired by the Cronut (a cross between a croissant and a doughnut) and the Duffin (a cross between a muffin and a doughnut), branding expert Liam spent around 12 months working out what other products would benefit from an injection of jam.

Meanwhile the ambitious inventor said more products could soon be on the way, including Dorizo, Dalami, Dipolatas, Dankfurters and Black Dudding.

& t i u Fr Facts Veg rmelon te Wa

We all know there is nothing more refreshing than a big, chilled wedge of watermelon on a hot summer day, but there is much more to this fruit than that! The long list of beneficial effects gained from watermelons mainly comes from its unique nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and organic compounds. These include significant amounts of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, fibre, protein and a very large amount of potassium. Furthermore, they contain vitamin A, vitamin B6, niacin, thiamin and a wide variety of carotenoids and phytonutrients, including lycopene! Potassium is helpful in washing out toxic depositions in the kidneys. Moreover, it helps to reduce the concentration of uric acid in the blood, thereby reducing the chances of kidney damage and the formation of renal calculi in that organ. Added to this, being high in water content, the watermelon induces frequent urinating, which is again helpful for cleaning of the kidneys. Also, the antioxidants present in watermelon ensure continuing good health of the kidneys, and reduce signs of premature ageing such as wrinkles and age spots on the skin. Watermelon is effective in reducing both your body temperature and blood pressure, thus combating heatstroke. The high amount of water also stimulates a release of excess liquid in the form of sweat, which cools your body further during hot summer days. The good amount of potassium and magnesium present in watermelons is very beneficial in terms of bringing down blood pressure. Potassium is considered a vasodilator, meaning that it releases the tension of blood vessels and arteries, thereby stimulating increased blood flow and reducing the stress on the cardiovascular system. The carotenoids present in these fruits also prevent hardening of artery walls and veins, thereby helping to reduce blood pressure and the chances of blood clots, strokes, heart attacks and atherosclerosis.

The impressive level of lycopene, a carotenoid phytonutrient compound, is increasingly being linked to cancer prevention. As studies continue to bring in consistent results, lycopene has been shown to significantly reduce the risks of prostate, breast, colon, lung and endometrial cancer. It also improves cardiac functions. Watermelons can be a good supplement for diabetics. In spite of being sweet in taste, a thick wedge will give you very few calories, and the various vitamins and minerals help in proper functioning of insulin in the body, thus lowering the blood sugar level.

Men’s Minds We always hear 'the rules' from the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side:

If you think you are fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

Breasts are for looking at and that is why we do it. Don't try to change that.

If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

Learn to work the toilet seat. If its up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down. Shopping is NOT a sport. and no, we are never going to think of it that way. Crying is blackmail. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do not work! Just say it! Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

Perfect restaurant for Weddings, Private Celebrations, Group meals and all types of occasions

You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done. Not both. If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials. ALL men see in only 16 colours, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a colour. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is. If we ask what is wrong and you say 'nothing', we will act like nothing’s wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle. You have enough clothes. You have too many shoes.

These Days Some of you will recognise this, those who don't, you've got it to come! 1. You leave clubs before the end to 'beat the rush' (worst still you don't go to the clubs) 2. You get more excited about having a roast on a Sunday than going clubbing the night before. 3. Before throwing the local paper away, you look through the property section. 4. All of a sudden, middle aged people are not 46, they are only 46.5. 5. Before going out anywhere, you ask whether there is anywhere to park. 12. The benefits of a pension scheme become clear. 13. You go out of your way to pick up a colour

chart from B&Q. 14. When sitting outside a pub you admire their hanging baskets. 15. You find yourself saying 'is it cold in here or is it just me?’’

The Koi originates from Eastern Asia, where it lives in fresh waters. Thanks to its beauty and increased popularity in the past century, Koi can now be found in the ponds throughout the world.

They release ammonia into the water. When large number of Koi fish inhabit the same pond, the level of ammonia can increase rapidly and induce poisoning of the fish. Although life in community can be dangerous, Koi fish enjoy the company of others of their breed. During the mating season, the female produces thousands of eggs that will be fertilized by the male's sperm in the water. Only 50 per cent of fertilized eggs will survive.

A Koi can reach up to 3 feet in length; its size depends on its living conditions. Adequate amounts of food and oxygen, together with an appropriate temperature, are essential for the growth of the fish. The colour of the Koi fish depends on the variety. They can be white, black, blue, red, cream or yellow in colour. Koi fish are covered with different-coloured spots. The Koi is an omnivore (it consumes both plants and animals). It eats different kinds of fish and their eggs, as well as foods such as lettuce, watermelon and peas. Koi fish can recognize the person who feeds them and they can be trained to eat from his/her hand. They have several predators, such as raccoons, otters, badgers, birds of prey, snakes, cats and dogs. Koi fish prefer water temperature ranging from 15 to 25 degrees Celsius. They do not tolerate drastic or rapid changes in temperature. Koi that live in temperate geographic areas hibernate during the winter. They swim to the bottom of the pond – where the water temperature is higher – and remain dormant until the weather conditions improve. Koi fish are sensitive to the sun. They may get sunburn if they live in ponds that do not provide enough shade.

Poetry Corner You. The day I first met her, One year ago, I saw something in her deep eyes, You'll never know. Our first kiss ripped my chest and exposed all of my heart. I felt how she got in. And that became the start. She, The most perfectly flawless being, on earth. Bonded to me, A lost soul with no direction, nor worth. I sensed the existence of a newborn emotion, Flowing in such a mysterious way, As through my body circulated the pleasure, Of a warm summer day.

Size Matters Women's response to: 2 inches - I can't even hold it. 3 inches - Never been so unsatisfied. 4 inches- I've had bigger than it. 5 inches- Good , but I wish a bit bigger! 6 inches - perfect. 7 inches - Love it. 8 inches - Wow ! but can’t have it all. 9 inches - Painful but manageable. 10 inches - Too much pressure on stomach. This survey was Customer's Feedback on different SIZES of: Subway Sandwiches! But I love the way you think!

This girl, by her own, Decided to start watering a stone, It was my solid unfertile heart. However since then, I've never felt alone, And I know that it'll never break apart. And I can't even understand yet How she pulls me a smile everyday And she keeps our fire lit And she takes my pain away, And makes my life fit. One year together has passed already, But I still can't describe how much I love you. I still can't explain how when the day goes grey, You turn skies blue. I still don't know what I'm going to do. I just know the only thing I need is you. To my beloved Julia-Sophie Sewing By Guillermo Olmos Fernández

Amazing Business Opportunity From Keidi Keating – the Editor As most of the regular readers of The Sentinella will know, I recently married an American man and moved to the USA. As part of creating my new life there I’m letting go of a lot of my old life here in Spain. So there’s an exciting, sky’s the limit opportunity for an entrepreneurial sort (or for a potential partnership) who thinks big and takes action! Kami and Tony (my sister and brother-in-law) do a fantastic job running The Sentinella magazine so nothing is changing with that side of things and they will continue to run The Sentinella Axarquia edition as usual. However, I have decided to sell The Sentinella licensing rights. In other words, a massive opportunity exists for someone to expand The Sentinella into other regions of Spain and countries where expats gather across the world. Someone could choose to do this either by setting up

Half day tour 3 hours The ideal gift or just an adrenaline boost Ideal for birthdays, etc. Drivers from 21 years with licence

You will experience the ultimate adventure, crossing rivers in a ”breathtaking” manner and being guided to places you have never been. Come and have a try!!

Call: 653 635 180 Email:

Sentinella magazines in different areas themselves and then selling them, building a massive network of magazines as a thriving business, or selling the licensing rights to other people who can set up The Sentinella in their area. None of the existing editions of The Sentinella (Axarquia edition, Costa tropical edition, and the Malaga editon) would be affected by this, as they are now all independently run. If anyone is interested in the price for this unique opportunity, or for more info, please email Keidi at

Please note, The Sentinella Axarquia magazine is NOT for sale and nor are any of the other editions of The Sentinella magazine – the only thing that is for sale is The Sentinella umbrella licensing rights.

"Tomorrowland" has many uncanny dream-logic moments, which make the film worth seeing The plot involves a teenage girl (Britt Robertson's Casey) seeking out a greying scientist (George Clooney's Frank Walker) who knows how to access the aforementioned future, where brilliant scientists and other special individuals have created a pristine new world in advance of this one's death. A young Frank Walker (Thomas Robinson), is befriended by a freckle-faced young English girl named Athena (Raffey Cassidy) who has a secret that I won't reveal here. There are warnings about the plight of extraordinary individuals in an ordinary world, and the

price we'll eventually pay for despoiling the environment and demonizing science. The entire picture is depicted as a series of clockwork suspense sequences involving laserguns, plasma bombs, hidden doors and gates and passageways and tunnels, vertigoinducing climbs and falls, serpentine hovertrains, machines and structures that fold and unfold and split, and humans that might not be human. With the aid of a time-travel device that looks like a souvenir button, present-day panoramas vanish. There are jet packs, monorails, robots that clomp and clank, and zerogravity swimming pools that are masses of water hanging in midair. If you want to know more then I’d say go for it and give this one a watch – it’s worth it! Star Rating: *****/*****

s e p o c s Horo by Juanita Banana of ARIES: March 21-April 20 Long-term relationships reap rewards and help you with important decisions. Communication and sex become stronger and more pleasurable. July is a month in which you can take advantage of your luck and ask for a raise TAURUS: April 21-May 21 Try not to act impulsively in areas that you will later regret. Take note of changes within your environment and conditions, especially on a professional level, and try to maintain enthusiasm following conquest GEMINI: May 22-June 21 Leave speculation behind and make realistic assessment, understanding failures and limitations, and your goals will be achieved. Pay attention to a message conveyed in a recurring dream. Geminis can enjoy some deep romantic moments during July CANCER: June 22-July 22 A time of considerable emotional transformation, when cherished ideals and fantasies should be adapted to the reality of the world around you. Avoid self-medication and seek professional help if feeling unwell LEO: July 23-August 23 Putting your trust in someone to talk about problems will bring liberation, harmony and recovery of confidence. Your insatiable curiosity leads you into researching mysteries of the occult. Beware of heights VIRGO: August 24-September 22 You are in great social demand this month but take care not to take on too much and become stressed. You achieve recognition from your workplace superiors and admiration from your peers

LIBRA: September 23 - October 22 Your desire to travel, make new contacts and explore new ideas may cause conflict with loved ones and tempt you to push even further for the freedom you crave. Be careful not to gamble or risk more than you wish to lose, both emotionally and financially SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21 Being saved from a near serious accident will make Scorpios think about their mortality and making a fresh start – a Bohemian lifestyle, and opportunity to deepen self-awareness, seems attractive SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21 Your personal magnetism, ability for hard work and infatuation with truth, all ensure an entourage of admirers. You inhabit a rich inner world that allows you to easily express your thoughts and ideas in an ever changing environment. Surprises are your specialty CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 20 More accustomed to being discreet and conservative, summer steaminess leads you into love traps and allows romance to interfere with business. Your excessive need for solid ground causes anxious and intense moments yet everything you wish for is closer than you imagine AQUARIUS: January 21 - February 19 An unexpected opportunity to travel may arise and will do wonders to lift your spirits this month when you are feeling alone and lacking in strength. Your energies will recover by the end of July but you are likely to become impatient in waiting PISCES: February 20 - March 20 Dreams and ambitions are essential for Pisceans at this time, perhaps with some training in your particular sphere of interest. You need to feel less exposed and lonely, so recover wasted time between friends and take refuge in their genuine warmth towards you

) : a h a Jokes h A man and his wife moved back home to Cork, from London. The wife had a wooden leg and to insure it in Britain was £2,000 a year! When they arrived in Cork, they went to an Insurance agency to see how much it would cost to insure the wooden leg. The agent looked it up on the computer and said to the couple, '€39.00.' The husband was shocked and asked why it was so cheap here in Ireland to insure, because it cost him £2,000 in England! The agent turned his computer screen to the couple and said, 'Well, here it is on the screen, it says: "Any wooden structure, with a sprinkler system over it, is '€39.00." ------------------------------------------------------------During the Great Depression, there was a man who walked into a bar one day. He went up to the bartender and said, "Bartender, I'd like to buy the house a round of drinks." The bartender said, "That's fine, but we're in the middle of the Depression, so I'll need to see some money first." The guy pulled out a huge wad of bills and set them on the bar. The bartender can't believe what he's seeing. "Where did you get all that money?" asked the bartender. "I'm a professional gambler," replied the man. The bartender said, "There's no such thing! I mean, your odds are fifty-fifty at best, right?" "Well, I only bet on sure things," said the guy. "Like what?" asked the bartender. "Well, for example, I'll bet you fifty dollars that I can bite my right eye," he said. The bartender thought about it. "Okay," he said. So, the guy pulled out his false right eye and bit it. "Aw, you screwed me," said the bartender, and paid the guy his $50. "I'll give you another chance. I'll bet you another fifty dollars that I can bite my left eye,"

said the stranger. The bartender thought again and said, "Well, I know you're not blind, I mean, I watched you walk in here. I'll take that bet." So, the guy pulled out his false teeth and bit his left eye. "Aw, you screwed me again!" protested the bartender. "That's how I win so much money, bartender. I'll just take a bottle of your best scotch in lieu of the fifty dollars," said the man. With that, the guy went to the back room and spent the better part of the night playing cards with some of the locals. After many hours of drinking and card playing, he stumbled up to the bar. Drunk as a skunk, he said, "Bartender, I'll give you one last chance. I'll bet you five hundred dollars that I can stand on this bar on one foot and piss into that whiskey bottle on that shelf behind you without spilling a drop." The bartender once again pondered the bet. The guy couldn't even stand up straight on two feet, much less one. "Okay, you're on," he said. The guy climbed up on the bar, stood on one leg, and began pissing all over the place. He hit the bar, the bartender, himself, but not a drop made it into the whiskey bottle. The bartender was ecstatic. Laughing, the bartender said, "Hey pal, you owe me five hundred dollars!" The guy climbed down off the bar and said, "That's okay. I just bet each of the guys in the card room a thousand bucks each that I could piss all over you and the bar and still make you laugh!" ------------------------------------------------------------Q: What do you do when your wife's staggering? A: Shoot her again. ------------------------------------------------------------Two snowmen are standing in a field. One says to the other : "Funny, I smell carrots too".

Jokes h a ha :) A Scotsman and an Englishman lived next door to each other. The Scotsman owned a hen and each morning he would look in his garden and pick up one of his hen's eggs for breakfast. One day he looked into his garden and saw that the hen had laid an egg in the Englishman's garden. He was about to go next door when he saw the Englishman pick up the egg. The Scotsman ran up to the Englishman and told him that the egg belonged to him because he owned the hen. The Englishman disagreed because the egg was laid on his property. They argued for a while until finally the Scotsman said, "In my family we normally solve disputes by the following actions: I kick you in the testicles and time how long it takes for you to get back up. Then you kick me in the testicles and time how long it takes for me to get up. Whoever gets up quicker wins the egg." The Englishman agreed to this and so the Scotsman put on the heaviest pair of boots he could find. He took a few steps back, then ran toward the Englishman and kicked him as hard as he could in the testicles. The Englishman fell to the floor clutching his groin, howling in agony for 30 minutes. Eventually the Englishman stood up and said, "Now it's my turn to kick you." The Scotsman smiled and said, "Ye can keep the damn egg!!" ------------------------------------------------------------Three men went to hell. The devil said to them "You have come to hell, and you must now choose whether to spend eternity in room 1, 2 or 3" He then opened the doors to the three rooms. Room 1 was filled with men standing on their heads, on a hard wooden floor. Room 2 was filled with men standing on the heads, on a cement floor. Finally, room 3 had just a few men, standing in poo up to their knees and drinking coffee.

The men thought for a while, and decided to go with room 3, as it was less crowded and they could drink coffee. They entered the door to room 3 and just as it was closing behind them, the devil said "OK men, coffee break's over. Back on your heads." ------------------------------------------------------------Ol' Fred had been a religious man who was in the hospital, near death. The family called their preacher to stand with them. As the preacher stood next to the bed, Ol' Fred's condition appeared to deteriorate and he motioned frantically for something to write on. The pastor lovingly handed him a pen and a piece of paper, and Ol' Fred used his last bit of energy to scribble a note, then he died. The preacher thought it best not to look at the note at that time, so he placed it in his jacket pocket. At the funeral, as he was finishing the message, he realised that he was wearing the same jacket that he was wearing when Ol' Fred died. He said, "You know, Ol' Fred handed me a note just before he died. I haven't looked at it, but knowing Fred, I'm sure there's a word of inspiration there for us all." He opened the note, and read out loud, "Hey, you're standing on my oxygen tube?" ------------------------------------------------------------What do you get when you cross an elephant and a rhino? el-if-i-no ------------------------------------------------------------Did you hear about the new French tank? It has 14 gears. 13 go in reverse, and one goes forward in case the enemy attacks from behind! ------------------------------------------------------------One night a policewoman pulls over a drunk driver. She politely asks him to step out of his car. He willingly does so. She says, "Anything you say can and will be Held against you." He replies "BREASTS."
