It seems that last month’s editorial caused quite a stir in the Axarquia community! I’ve received countless emails and messages asking when I’m moving to America, why I’m moving there, and even what will happen to The Sentinella when I leave! I’m deeply flattered that you’re all so concerned, but it seems the editorial of May 2012 was slightly misread. I didn’t say that I was definitely moving to the USA. Instead, I merely hinted, right at the end of the column, that I’d quite like to move there. And I would. However, I also know that perhaps the Universe has other plans, so when the time does come for me to move (and that’s also in the hands of the Universe), I’ll follow whatever signs I receive at the time. Perhaps, I’ll end up staying here in Spain, and simply move to a different region, maybe only half an hour away. Or perhaps I’ll go to live in the land of Timbuktu. It’s exciting not to know what will happen…an adventure in the making. As for The Sentinella, Kami and Tony have ran it for the last five years, and apart from the odd piece of writing (such as these editorials), I don’t really have much involvement anymore. So I’m sure it will continue to flourish without my presence. Thank you for all your concern and well wishes…and remember, there’s a beautiful one bed apartment up for sale in El Morche if anyone wants to help me move even quicker! It’s now up for 90,000€ and it’s just across the road from the beach. All enquiries to: info@thesentinella.com

Strange News

and that’s travel! I’ve just got back from a trip to Florida to see a very good friend (along with Winnie the Pooh and Eeyore), and in a couple of weeks I’m heading to someplace near Geneva to see another friend who sees spirits on a daily basis. Life is exciting :)

Feeling flush? You will need a head for heights when visiting this toilet otherwise it might leave you feeling a little flush.

Tony is also getting excited right now at the start of the European Championships. No doubt he, among many other expats living here, will be cheering on England, Ireland and of course España!

When the owners of this Mexican penthouse use the toilet or brush their teeth, they will be able to look through the floor to the bottom of the shaft. The luxury penthouse is built on top of an old Colonial-style building in Guadalajara, México, built in the 1970s.

And I can’t forget to mention the Queen’s diamond jubilee this month – 60 years on the throne. That’s a lot of time living in Buckingham Palace. Who am I to moan about eight years living in the same apartment...?!

That's because it is suspended on a glass floor above a 15-storey unused lift shaft.

Keidi Keating

The interior of the home was designed by architects Hernandez Silva Arquitectos, who explained that a characteristic feature of the project is the space that was originally intended for a never-installed second elevator, which has now become a powder room with a glass floor that looks all the way down.

Ratty rat A rat called Robson has won the lead role in a new exhibition at a London tourist attraction. Robson saw off fierce competition to star in Rat Walk, a new feature at the London Dungeon about the role rats played in the Black Death. He was one of six rats auditioning to co-star with the Dungeon's Rat Catcher in the exhibition, due to open in time for the Whitsun holiday. All six had acting pedigrees with ancestors including Jasper, who appeared in Sweeney Todd; Ludo, who scuttled around on the set of Hot Fuzz and Nancy who starred in BBC1's Sherlock. But there could be only one winner and the judges unanimously crowned Robson the top rat. "Performing is at the heart of what we do and we hold regular auditions to find the best actors for the horrible character roles we have here at the London Dungeon," explained general manager Ben Sweet. "But auditioning for rats is definitely a first. We do already have a family of rodents living here, but they are not performers."

De Cotta Law Civil litigation case study: ‘Liability for damage caused by hunting dogs’ By Javier Florido Martin, Lawyer with De Cotta Law. In many areas of our province rural properties are located in, or close to, areas reserved for hunting (Cotos or Reservas de Caza). It is fairly normal in Spain that hunters are accompanied by their own dogs, but these dogs can sometimes cause damage to neighbouring properties. Spanish law dictates that hunters must be licensed with the local authority and if they hunt with dogs, they must take out an insurance policy for Civil Liability. Therefore damage caused by hunting dogs or other animals are one of the few cases of strict liability under the eyes of the law, so that compensation is virtually automatic unless it is proven that the other party, the victim, was to blame. Recently, De Cotta Law successfully defended a client who suffered damage by hunting dogs. The victim owned a house near a hunting reserve, and his property is used for the breeding of parrots and other exotic birds. It was on one occasion that the owner returned to his property to find that several birds had been attacked

by dogs, resulting in the serious injury and death of many of them. However, the local ‘Guardia Civil’ were able to locate and apprehend the owners of the dogs and therefore a case was brought against the hunters. In court, De Cotta Law successfully acted for the breeder of the exotic birds and was able to secure compensation of some 6,000€; which was paid by the insurance company of the hunting dog owners. This is an interesting case as it is clearly underlines that dog owners should be aware that they are liable for the damage their animals cause, and that they must have adequate insurance cover. In addition the case also shows that if one suffers damage or loss caused by a dog or other animal, there is the opportunity to seek financial compensation. If you would like to know more about seeking compensation or civil litigation, please contact Javier Florido Martin at De Cotta Law: Calle Diputación 11, 29780 Nerja tel.: +34 952 527 014 Fax: +34 952 523 428 Monday to thursday-9.30am–5.30pm, no siesta Friday 9.30pm–2pm E-mail: nerja@decottalaw.net

Magnetic Letters Found on the Refrigerator One Morning: My Dear wife, You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 54 years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very happy with you and I value you as a good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don't be upset - I shall be home before midnight. When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter on the dining room table: My Dear husband, I received your letter and thank you for your honesty about my being 54 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 54 years old. As you know, I am a math teacher at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be

at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my students, who is also the assistant tennis coach. He is young, virile, and like your secretary, is 18 years old. As a successful businessman who has an excellent knowledge of math, you will understand that we are in the same situation, although with one small difference - 18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18. Therefore, I will not be home until sometime tomorrow.

tronomers. If you dream of the colour brown, it means you will be lucky with money. The term ‘brown out’ is used to describe a partial lack of power — as opposed to a ‘blackout’ when all power is lost. Someone in deep thought is described as being in a ‘brown study’ Winston Churchill once said: "I cannot pretend to feel impartial about colours. I rejoice with the brilliant ones and am genuinely sorry for the poor browns."

Brown says stability, reliability and approachability. It is the colour of our earth and is associated with all things natural or organic But did you know….. Mestizo Hispanics sometimes refer to themselves as brown or bronze. In the United States, Thanksgiving is represented by brown and orange. The Japanese do not have a specific word for brown. Rather, they use more descriptive names such as “tea-colour," "fox-colour," and "fallen-leaf.” In India, brown is the colour of mourning because it resembles dying leaves. American Indians believe the colour brown represents the power of self-discipline. Brown was representative of the Nazi party in Germany the from 1920s to the 1940s. The

Sturmabteilung (stormtroopers) dressed in brown uniforms and were referred to as "brownshirts." The Nazi vote was symbolised by brown on electoral district maps. The Nazi headquarters was named the Brown House. Companies use brown paper to denote a natural product. The existence of brown dwarves — astronomical objects — was recently confirmed by as-

There is no question that the vehicle you drive is an extension of your personality -- an unspoken but clear message to the rest of the world. If you drive a brown car, it means you are a nononsense and down to earth person Two of the best known songs with ‘brown’ in the title are Van Morrison’s "Brown Eyed Girl" and The Rolling Stones’ rock anthem “Brown Sugar.”

Oh To Be A Woman! A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed home he wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed: 'Dear Lord: I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife merely stays at home. I want her to know what I go through. So, please allow her body to switch with mine for a day.' God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish. The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman... He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set out their school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove them to school, came home and picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners and stopped at the bank to make a deposit. Went grocery shopping then drove home to put away the groceries, paid the bills and balanced the check book. He cleaned the cat's litter box and bathed the dog.. Then, it was already 1pm and he hurried to make the beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop the kitchen floor. Ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an

argument with them on the way home. Set out milk and cookies and got the kids organised to do their homework. Then, set up the ironing board and watched TV while he did the ironing. At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables for salad, breaded the pork chops and snapped fresh beans for supper. After supper, he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed. At 9pm he was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren't finished, he went to bed where he was expected to make love, which he managed to get through without complaint. The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said: - 'Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife's being able to stay home all day. Please, Oh! Please, let us trade back.. Amen!' The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied: "My son, I feel you have learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things back to the way they were. But you'll have to wait nine months, though. You got pregnant last night"

Nine Words Women Use You women are just mad!! (1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up. (2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house. (3) Nothing: This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with nothing usually end in fine.. (4) go ahead: This is a dare, not permission.. Don't Do It! (5) Loud sigh: This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men.. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing.. (Refer back to No. 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

(6) that's Okay: This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man.. That's okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake. (7) thanks: A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you're welcome. (I want to add in a clause here - This is true, unless she says 'Thanks a lot' - that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say 'you're welcome'. That will bring on a 'whatever'). (8) whatever: Is a woman's way of saying f*** YOU! (9) Don't worry about it, i'll do it: Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing herself. This will later result in a man asking 'What's wrong?' For the woman's response refer to No. 3. Now as for us men, how the hell are we supposed to understand you?

A Taste Of Cornwall On The Costa Kevin Hanley, after years of selling genuine handmade Cornish pasties “upcountry” in the UK and Ireland, has now taken semi-retirement, moving to the beautiful coastline of the Costa del Sol. Known as “The Pastyman,” Kevin was the first person to sell Cornish pasties outside the county when he opened his first shop in Oxford in 1996. In true “Kernow” spirit, he took pasties to Dublin, opening four shops.

ing Jethro-style pub quizzes!) Alternatively, how about baking them from an oven near the door: where aromas can catch “beach bound” holidaymakers – who can’t resist a pasty for lunch? Kevin says: “It’s going really well for us so far. We’ve enjoyed the welcome that we’ve received — so much so that the idea of semi-retirement is slowly fading!”

Now, despite being semi-retired, he can’t resist the urge to bring his favourite food to our shores here in Spain. He supplies this original product to bars, restaurants and pubs along the coast. This authentic pasty is hand-crimped and handmade in Cornwall, blast frozen then shipped here. Kevin supports customers with his knowledge and passion for pasties, finding that the Cornish season and the one here on the coast are very similar. He assists his customers in marketing this exciting addition to their menu: and helps to promote themed “pasty nights” (includ-

Fancy A Unique Horse Riding Experience?

welcome to Finca Don Carmelo - Is there a better way to enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful and unspoiled countryside of the Axarquía than on the back of a horse? While riding through the sierras, olive groves and white washed villages of the Axarquía you will get a unique sense of freedom! At Finca Don Carmelo we have nine reliable horses available for guided trips of either half a day, including tapas and drinks, or a full day including lunch and drinks. trotting over lemons - Our horseback tours aren’t the average ‘one hour routine trips’. We ride through olive and citrus groves; we cross rivers and sometimes we make our own way through the wild countryside. During our trips, we allow time for a trot or a canter, but always

with respect for our horses. We ride with comfortable Spanish (vaquera) or English saddles. All our horse tours are accompanied. Our horses - We have nine riding horses, all well trained and reliable, with gentle natures. There is a horse for every type of rider, and depending on your level, we will match you with the most suitable one. reservations (++34) 65 22 007 02 “A unique experience. Breathtaking scenery, gentle and reliable horses, a relaxed atmosphere and genuine hospitality.” Sven Van Loo “A great ride and very good guiding.

g n i z a Am cts Inse e Lic

The humble louse – plural, lice – has earned a thoroughly bad press over the years, but they are one of nature’s most interesting and resilient insects! There are about 3,000 species of wingless insects, which mainly feed on the blood of animals. Head lice are unique in that they only feed on human blood. As well as humans, lice are common among goats, dogs and horses. They suck blood from their bodies. The different species of lice reside in different

layers of the body, but generally live in the subcutaneous layer of the skin. If the infected place is scratched a number of times with dirty hands or any other dirty part of the body, the infection can increase and, if untreated, may evolve into an incurable disease. This is very common among animals. There are three main types of lice: head lice – commonly called nits; body lice and pubic lice. Scientists have discovered that pubic lice were common among humans approximately two million years ago. One mature female louse can lay three or four eggs per day. This adds up to 90 - 120 eggs per month. Females typically only require one mating in their lifetime to produce all of their eggs

Amazing Insects (Continued) The average speed of a louse is 3.75 inches per minute. This is equivalent to 18.75 feet in one hour, and approximately 450 feet per day. This is over the length of one football field. Lice are developing resistance to certain medical treatment methods, including the use of

more than 350 million dollars will be spent each year on lice treatments in the United States alone. You can maintain healthy personal hygiene and still become infected by lice. A healthy adult louse can live for almost three days without food. Adult lice are commonly the size of a sesame seed; the nit is approximately the size of the tip of a pencil lead. Itching from a lice infestation is an allergic reaction not to the bite itself, but from the saliva secreted onto the scalp. Head lice are incapable of jumping, hopping, or flying.

pesticides. Approximately 10-12 million Anericans will become infested with lice on a yearly basis, and

African Americans are less likely to get lice than other races. This is due to the fact that the African American hair shaft has a different shape that lice have problems adhering to. However, there are lice in Africa that have evolved their infection capabilities.

Payback!! "Spare a thought for Michael O'Leary, Chief Executive of 'Ryanair'....... Arriving in a hotel in Dublin, he went to the bar and asked for a pint of draught Guinness. The barman nodded and said, "That will be 1€ please, Mr. O'Leary." Somewhat taken aback, O'Leary replied, "That's very cheap," and handed over his money. "Well, we try to stay ahead of the competition", said the barman. "And we are serving free pints every Wednesday evening from 6 until 8. We have the cheapest beer in Ireland" "That is remarkable value" Michael comments. "I see you don't seem to have a glass, so you'll probably need one of ours. That will be 3€ please." O'Leary scowled, but paid up. He took his drink and walked towards a seat. "Ah, you want to sit down?" said the barman. "That'll be an extra 2€. You could have prebook the seat, and it would have only cost you a Euro." "I think you may to be too big for the seat sir, can I ask you to sit in this frame please" Michael attempts to sit down but the frame is too small and when he can't squeeze in he complains "Nobody would fit in that little frame".

"I'm afraid if you can't fit in the frame you'll have to pay an extra surcharge of 4€ for your seat sir" O'Leary swore to himself, but paid up. "I see that you have brought your laptop with you" added the barman. "And since that wasn't pre-booked either, that will be another 3€." O'Leary was so annoyed that he walked back to the bar, slammed his drink on the counter, and yelled, "This is ridiculous, I want to speak to the manager"."Ah, I see you want to use the counter," says the barman, "that will be 2€ please." O'Leary's face was red with rage. "Do you know who I am?" "Of course I do Mr. O'Leary," "I've had enough, what sort of Hotel is this? I come in for a quiet drink and you treat me like this. I insist on speaking to a manager!" "Here is his email address, or if you wish, you can contact him between 9 and 9.10 every morning, Monday to Tuesday at this free phone number. Calls are free, until they are answered, then there is a talking charge of only 10 cent per second" "I will never use this bar again" "OK sir, but remember, we are the only hotel in Ireland selling pints for 1 Euro".

Recipe Of The Month Honey and mustard sausages ingredients • 2 tbsp sunflower oil • 48 cocktail sausages, separated if linked • 3 tbsp clear honey • 3 tbsp wholegrain or Dijon mustard 1. Preheat the oven to 200C/Gas 6/fan oven 180C. Pour the oil into a large roasting tin and heat in the oven for 3-4 minutes. Tip the sausages into the roasting tin and toss to lightly coat in the oil. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until browned and cooked through. 2. Drain the sausages well on kitchen paper, then tip them into a clean roasting tin. Blend the honey and mustard together in a small bowl, pour over the sausages and stir and shake them so they become coated. Return to the oven for 5 minutes, turning them over halfway. Serve hot or warm, with cocktail sticks and little pots of ketchup and mustard for dipping. 3. Prepare ahead: you can roast the sausages the day before, cool them on kitchen paper and

then just keep them in a plastic container in the fridge overnight. Toss in the honey and mustard mix and reheat for 10-12 minutes in the oven before serving.

Very angry Johnny: Because I've already got a f****** cat. ------------------------------------------------------------the world's smartest Dog? As a butcher is shooing a dog from his shop, he sees ÂŁ10 and a note in his mouth, reading: "10 lamb chops, please." Amazed, he takes the money, puts a bag of

chops in the dog's mouth, and quickly closes the shop. He follows the dog and watches him wait for a green light, look both ways, and trot across the road to a bus stop. The dog checks the timetable and sits on the bench. When a bus arrives, he walks around to the front and looks at the number, then boards the bus. The butcher follows, dumbstruck. As the bus travels out into the suburbs, the dog takes in the scenery. After awhile he stands on his back paws to push the "stop" button, then the butcher follows him off. The dog runs up to a house and drops his bag on the step. He goes back down the path, takes a big run, and throws himself -Whap!- against the door. He does this again and again. No answer. So he jumps on a wall, walks around the garden, beats his head against a window, jumps off, and waits at the front door. A big guy opens it and yells at the dog. The butcher runs up screams at the guy: "What in the world are you doing? This dog's a genius!" The owner responds, "Genius? I don't think so. It's the second time this week he's forgotten his key!"

***CORRECTION*** of José Luis Viera, the low level of Spanish in

The Sentinella’s commercial sales department

S.O.H.A.(Save Our Homes Axarquia soha.es) are pleased to announce as a result of it's efforts, the retraction of the erroneous and misleading advertisement in the last two months issues of The Sentinella. This referred to a group of professionals claiming to be agents of the Junta de Andalucia and offering to legalise or regulate houses built on non urban land. Soha will act vigorously against any person or body attempting to mislead it's members. See retraction and apology below; “In last month’s issue of The Sentinella we placed an ad based on Decree 2/2012 regarding the Regularisation Houses of Andalusia which indicated that we were "Agents of the Junta de Andalucía", this assertion is not true but is an error that stems from the poor English

THAI

and the use of internet translator programs. What we had wanted to express was our experience. With reference to the improper use of the logo of the Junta de Andalucía, its use was intended to indicate that the Decree 2/2012 was a decree made by the Junta de Andalucía. In fact, we are NOT agents of the Junta de Andalucia. As regards the period of 12 months, it comes from a misunderstood phrase which refers to the transitional provision of Law Tercera.3 2/2012 of January 30, procurement and removal of supplies. The truth is that there is NO time limit for the regularisation of houses. For all the above, we apologise for any confusion we may have caused. It has never been our intention nor The Sentinella’s to mislead or cause problems for anyone.” Jose Luis Viera

Solar Shade How can we enjoy the sunshine at home, not get too hot and keep air conditioning costs down? By using Solar Control Window Film – that’s how! Supplied and fitted by Solar Shade to glass curtains, glazed balconies, conservatories, windows, cars, yachts… really, where there's glass that's where we can stick it! What does Solar Control film do? As it sounds, it controls the sun’s heat build-up entering the room through the glazing, making for a comfortable temperature. It can reduce 400+ Celsius to 250-270 Celsius, so that air conditioning doesn't have to work so hard, which in turn means saving money. The other unique factor is that it will retain winter heat too. It does this by insulating the glass and upgrading older glass to current energy standards. However, you won't lose that warming effect of the winter sun during those cold but bright Andalucian winters, because the light wave length changes due to the angle of the sun, and so heat passes through the film. The film disperses excessive glare, though, so that you can still see the TV, laptop, tablet etc. at that

time of year. (Clever stuff!) It also provides a safety feature of holding broken glass together in the event of an accident, for example older single-glazed glass is made safe, especially in areas of constant use by children. It comes in many different colours and shades: silver, bronze, blue, green, black etc and once installed, is maintenance free. It adds privacy to your home, office, vehicle or yacht and practically removes fading. It will enhance the overall aesthetic value. The tint film can also be supplied as a solar blind if you want the flexibility of only seasonal use. It is supplied as a roller blind that can be lowered to whatever position is needed to reflect glare, or pulled down to cover all the window to prevent heat entering, while still giving that all-important view and insulating the window in winter. So go on — improve your living environment; make living in the sun a truly comfortable experience. If you'd like to know more, email solarshadetinting@gmail.com or give us a call on 902 888 176 or 644 546 176 and ask to speak to Ian or see our ad opposite.

Cambridge 800 Ad and Erik first came to southern Spain 5 years ago. On advice of a Spanish friend, they explored the Andalucian area by car. One of the places they visited was Cómpeta and initial impressions were “wow”, they loved it. Over the next few years they kept coming back to explore Andalucia and each time they kept returning to the Cómpeta area. Erik owned shops in Belgium selling designer household items, however with the recession, came the decline in top end sales. This combined with exploring Andalucia lead to a desire of a more permanent move and a new ambition of starting a Bed and Breakfast. They continued their exploration of Andalucia whilst preparing for this move. This meant closing down their shops and for an interim period Erik went back to being a Kitchen designer and Ad back to his old profession of Nursing. Ad had lost an enormous amount of weight using the Cambridge Weight Plan and then went on to work for Cambridge in Belgium. He spent 90% of his time nursing in hospitals and 10% of his time working for Cambridge. Between June and August last year, Ad and Erik came to Spain looking to buy, however they found the viewing process whilst on holiday and with limited time extremely difficult, so they took the plunge, sold up anyway and came out to rent. Ad and Erik are now currently in the process of buying their home in Cómpeta which hasn’t been straight forward, but in the meantime have set up Cambridge 800, part of the successful range of weight loss solutions and part of the Cambridge Weight Plan group of products, based in Torrox. Ad is a real testament to the success of Cambridge having used the product himself and with his nursing qualifications he hopes to provide a workable solution to those who want to lose weight in this area. Once settled in Spain Ad contacted Cambridge, asking them if they planned to expand to Spain and the answer was yes. In January 2012 Cambridge 800 launched in Spain, so both Ad and Erik went on

a course in Mijas to become Cambridge 800 Consultants. Ad feels his combination of personal weight loss experience and nursing credentials, specialising in the field of diabetes gives him excellent qualifications to aid people to lose weight sensibly, with full support and to help those who have lost weight, keep it off for good. Cambridge 800 is a 5 step weight management plan. Which step you start on depends on how much weight you have to lose and a number of other factors. The ultimate goal is to reach step 5 “My life”, where a target weight has been reached but you visit the centre weekly for support. This is key in the success of the customer wishing to lose weight. The first consultation is 20€ and each weekly support session is free thereafter. The shakes and soups are 2.10€ which you can buy from the centre. Also available are bars, porridge and a number of other weight loss related items. Ad is your local Cambridge 800 Consultant based in Torrox. Cambridge are delighted that Ad has joined the Cambridge 800 team in Spain and know that the local community wishing to lose weight will very much benefit from Ad’s broad skills and professionalism. It was a pleasure to meet Ad and Erik and we wish them every success in their business.

Eat Your Veggies! They’re very, very good for you!! 1. Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc. 2. Feeling tired in the afternoon, put down the caffeinated soda and pick up a cucumber. Cucumbers are a good source of B Vitamins and Carbohydrates that can provide that quick pickme-up that can last for hours. 3. Tired of your bathroom mirror fogging up after a shower? Try rubbing a cucumber slice along the mirror, it will eliminate the fog and provide a soothing, spa-like fragrance.

4. Are grubs and slugs ruining your planting beds? Place a few slices in a small pie tin and your garden will be free of pests all season long. The chemicals in the cucumber react with the aluminum to give off a scent undetectable to humans but drive garden pests crazy and make them flee the area. 5. Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and reducing the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!! 6. Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before going to bed and wake up refreshed and headache free. Cucumbers contain enough sugar, B vitamins and electrolytes to replenish essential nutrients the body lost, keeping

everything in equilibrium, avoiding both a hangover and headache!! 7. Looking to fight off that afternoon or evening snacking binge? Cucumbers have been used for centuries and often used by European trappers, traders and explorers for quick meals to thwart off starvation. 8. Have an important meeting or job interview and you realize that you don't have enough time to polish your shoes? Rub a freshly cut cucumber over the shoe, its chemicals will provide a quick and durable shine that not only looks great but also repels water. 9. Out of WD40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!

during final exams.

10. Stressed out and don't have time for massage, facial or visit to the spa? Cut up an entire cucumber and place it in a boiling pot of water, the chemicals and nutrients from the cucumber will react with the boiling water and be released in the steam, creating a soothing, relaxing aroma that has been shown to reduce stress in new mothers and college students

11. Just finished a business lunch and realise you don't have gum or mints? Take a slice of cucumber and press it to the roof of your mouth with your tongue for 30 seconds to eliminate bad breath, the phytochemcials will kill the bacteria in your mouth responsible for causing bad breath. 12. Looking for a 'green' way to clean your taps, sinks or stainless steel? Take a slice of cucumber and rub it on the surface you want to clean, not only will it remove years of tarnish and bring back the shine, but it won't leave streaks and won't harm you fingers or fingernails while you clean. 13. Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!

Daimalos

Daimalos, pronounced Die Malos, is a very small village which is part of the municipality of Arenas on the Mudejar Route.

It is 47 kilometres from Málaga and just 14 kilometres from the sea side resort of Torre del Mar. Known for its oloroso wine, strangely the village doesn´t even have a bar! Although most households have their own homemade version which they are happy to share! It has to rely on its next door neighbour Arenas for all its amenities.

Daimalos settlement books as early as 1561. Villagers believe that if you are already married drinking from the fountain will help you conceive and the flowing water is supposed to increase sexual power! Not to be forgotten is the Parish Church of La Concepción with its seventeenth century minaret rising high above the church with its belfry silhouetted against the sky. In 2004 this Minaret was designated a Cultural Asset by the Government of Andalucia. Life in Daimalos is tranquil and happy (possibly due to the effects of the water!) not many houses come up for sale here as once ensconced in the village most people are happy to stay. To get to Daimalos the easiest way is via Arenas, keep going and round the next bend you will discover its cluster of white houses, apparently clinging together for fear of falling off the hill! Take your camera and a water bottle (or two!) Then once you are done sightseeing head back to Arenas for tapas or lunch in the bar/restaurant on the right hand side on the way out, just before the town hall.

Daimalos is probably most famous for its Fountain of Love! A small watering hole situated on the right as you drive up to the top of the houses. Fuente Perdida is an Arab fountain from the 12th century during the Marinid dynasty. The water in this fountain is supposed to be an aphorodisiac and legend has it that if a single person drinks from the fountain they will be married shortly afterwards! Probably not that unlikely as the village only houses about 100 people! This fountain is mentioned in the

Allotment We’ve Lost the Plot! Having taken care of our veggie patch for the grand total of 18 months, Kami, Tony and I recently made a difficult but mutual decision. We are no longer tending to our plot of land in Mezquitilla. It’s not that we didn’t enjoy it, especially the part which involved picking and then eating the gifts of our labour! In the end it all came down to time and the fact that none of us have much of it. Kami and Tony are busy running The Sentinella and taking care of their two children. And I’m busy putting together a book called ‘The Light’ and looking after my publishing and editing clients. So adios veggie patch…we will miss you! If you would like a plot call Jose on 639 12 07 07

Random Joke :) a Cup of tea One day my mother was out, and my dad was in charge of me. I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a gift, and it was one of my favourite toys. Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my mum came home.

$$$ Share’oscope $$$ Here is Mr. Share with some more share advice! He has bought 10,000 Toumaz shares @ 10p Toumaz, which designs ultra low-power wireless systems and where Imagination Technologies invested £5m for a 25% stake recently. No share’s were bought last month as Mr. Share had a well earned rest. He seems to have come back fully refreshed as I think he is on to a winner here!

My dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!'. Mum waited, and sure enough, here I came down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy; and she watched him drink it up.

Then she said, (as only a mother would know), "'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?"

Dressed Walls The appearance of walling is often the last thing to be considered when building a wall, as cost is usually the primary decision driver. When purchasing an existing home, owners can sometimes inherit unsightly or rather plainlooking walls. Dressing a wall can greatly improve its appearance at a reasonable cost. Walls can be dressed in a variety of different stone cladding or false brickwork. Stone cladding is dressed to shape, with particular attention paid to the spacing between

Too often, walls here in Spain are simply rendered and painted white. Whilst this is fine, why not consider giving your garden walls a unique look that will separate them from the rest? Through ongoing consultation with the client, an appreciation of the aesthetics of the home and garden, and access to locally sourced natural stone, we can help beautify your wall. A newly-dressed wall should greatly enhance the value and look of your property.

The Word Queen Two Steps To Getting Book Reviews As promised from last month, here’s a two step method you can follow to bag reviews for your book: 1) Find bloggers who are related to your book, or who have reviewed other books in a similar genre, with a Page Rank of three or more. If your main character is a doctor, contact doctor blogs. If your character is a psychic, write to psychic blogs, etc. Page Rank 3 (PR3) is the best ranking to aim for because once a blog hits PR4 they receive a lot of advertising requests. PR3 blogs are more likely to respond with a ‘yes!’ 2) To ask for the review firstly tell them who you are and ask if they’d be interested in receiving a free copy of your book. Also mention that if they like it, you’d really appreciate a review on Amazon. Keep it short and to the point. Perhaps you could also give the reviewer a summary, page count, genre, and the ISBN number of the book. Provide a link to your website for more information. It’s a good idea to give the

message a personal slant, as if you’re writing to a friend rather than a stranger. Also bear in mind that most people prefer to receive a physical book. Getting book reviews is a numbers game. Big commercial publishers often send out at least five-hundred review copies. Most indie authors can’t afford to send such a vast quantity, but it’s usually pretty affordable to send out ten or twenty copies to targeted blogs, plus email hundreds of other blogs with a digital copy. At the beginning it’s all about getting a following. You need reviews and support first then after you have that, you can focus your time and energy on selling your book and making money!

Untouchables (Intouchables), is a loosely based-on-fact French tale of a quadriplegic white millionaire given a new lease of life by his uncouth black caretaker.

lives with his teenage daughter Elisa (Alba Ga誰a Kraghede Bellugi) in an opulently luxurious Paris apartment. Hiring a new caretaker to assist him with his daily physical needs, he rejects various highly qualified candidates in favour of Driss (Omar Sy), who has only applied for the job to ensure he keeps getting welfare payments. A recently released ex-con, the thirtyish Driss's brash confidence and sometimes brutal straightforwardness impress the jaded Philippe, who has become tired of the "pitying" attentions of his previous helpers. Driss faces a steep learning curve in his transition from the projects to Philippe's palatial pad, but this new arrangement quickly starts paying some unexpected dividends for both parties.

While by no means the most distinguished or subtle French production of the year, this fourth feature by writer-directors Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledano will almost certainly provide the duo with their first taste of international recognition. An extremely wealthy widower, fiftyish Philippe

Nerja 41 Club Nerja 41 Club grows thanks to advertising Nerja41 Club is still looking for former Round Tablers. Past members of the thousands of Round Tables around the world who are living East of Malaga full time or for part of the year have been, and still are, being invited to join their local Ex Tabler’s Club, known as the East of Malaga or Nerja 41 Club. My name is Alfie Fornear and I have the privilege of Chairing Nerja 41 Club for 2011/2012. Our club membership here in Spain includes ex Tablers from several North European Countries such as Belgium, Austria, Sweden, Denmark and, yes, even England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. Only 20% of our members live in Spain full time whilst the rest visit for only one to five months per year. It is not difficult to understand that continuity is potentially a problem hence our recent membership drive to try to find more full and part time members. There are many ex Tablers out there in the area covered by our club and there is only one way to find them. So far we have written articles for local papers and free magazines including The Sentinella of which there are many and we have designed an eye-catching logo to advertise ourselves in their ‘What’s On’ sections. Next, we are going to approach the numerous local radio stations whose audiences include many ‘golden oldies’ and hopefully many ex Tablers amongst their numbers! All of this effort is starting to pay off as we have introduced 14 new members in the last year or so giving us a total of 33. We still need more so let me tell you what we do. Our club meets twice a month on the first and third Thursdays. On the first Thursday we have our ‘Munch Bunch’ lunch where we go out with our ladies to sample ‘menu del dia’ around many of the different restaurants in our very large catchment area. This is proving very popular as we try out these various venues. Our meeting on the third Thursday is the normal 41 Club meeting for the men at the Hotel Al-Andaluz in Maro next to the caves of Nerja and on these evenings the ladies often meet for a meal. Some of our club evenings are shared with our ladies if we have a splendid speaker, and on other evenings the fun and fellowship of Round Table comes to the fore. We also have other events such as a barbeque’s at Lake Vinuela, Boules and Go Karting and a walk have been enjoyed. Our trip to see the Spanish Riding School in Jerez was very successful along with our ladies night at

the First Restaurant in January. Recently a large group visited Gibraltar for our ‘Cluster’ weekend. This is when the seven 41 Clubs on the Iberian Peninsula spend a weekend of fun together, each Club taking turns to host this event. The Clubs involved are well spread in Spain with Portugal and Majorca joining us as well. Our meeting in March was run by our new members and was well supported and hilarious. One of our members who is also a member of an English 41 Club was recently presented with our Club’s highest honour by our current National President. So, ex Tablers, if you are on our patch during the year (anywhere East of Malaga for some 100 kilometers) please come and join us. Also, if you have a property near us and stay for long or short visits you could actually join our club. So, my friends, if you would like a good lunch with us and our ladies or an evening 41 Club meeting, come and join us Please contact Chairman Alfie (Alan) Fornear on 626 998 626 or a.fornear@hotmail.com or visit our excellent website: nerja41club.org

A.P.A.Ri.V Charity Shop Moving

103

RBL Skydive

Our Torre Del Mar shop is on the move Since its opening on July 1, 2011, our charity shop in Torre del Mar has been a big success. Our sincere thanks to everyone who has donated time and effort in making this happen. We also want to thank everyone who has donated clothing and other items to keep up our shop merchandise. To further improve the shop, we are moving to a new location on Calle Duque de Ahumada, just two streets away from where we are now. The new shop is set to open on June 1, 2012. The shop on Avenida Tore Tore will remain open until June 30, 2012. We ask for your continued support and patronage in making our shop even more successful. As always, all proceeds from the shop go directly for the benefit and welfare of the dogs. We also wish to remind everyone that our shop in Rincon de la Victoria remains open for business!

Random Jokes During a recent password audit by Google, it was found that a blonde was using the following password: "MickeyMinniePlutoHueyLouieDeweyDonaldGoofyLondon" When asked why she had such a long password, she rolled her eyes and said "Hello! It has to be at least 8 characters long and include at least one capital!" -------------------------------------------------------------A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the M25. Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window. The driver rolls down the window and asks, "What's going on?" "Terrorists have kidnapped all of our MP’s during a sitting of parliament, and they're asking for a £100 million ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in petrol and set them on fire. We are going from car to car collecting donations." "How much is everyone giving, on average?" the driver asks. The man replies, "Roughly a gallon."

) : a h a h s e k o J A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabbylooking homeless man who asked him for a couple of euros for dinner. The man took out his wallet, extracted ten euros and asked, "If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?" "No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied. "Will you spend this on green fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked. "Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!" "Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife" The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that?� The man replied, "That's okay. It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking and golf. --------------------------------------------------------------I met a young lady in the park the other evening. There was an instant spark between us and she immediately dropped to her knees and laid on the grass at my feet. As we lay there making love, I thought, "These Taser guns are well worth the money� --------------------------------------------------------------A 75-year old man went to his doctor's office to get a sperm count. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, "Take this jar home and bring me back a sample tomorrow." The next day, the 75-year old man reappears at the doctor's office and gives him the jar, which is as clean and empty as on the previous day. The doctor asks what happened, and the man explains: "Well, doc, it's like this. First I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but nothing. Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, but nothing. Then her left, but nothing. She even tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with the teeth out, and still nothing. Hell, we even called up the lady next door, and she tried with both hands and her mouth too, but nothing."

The doctor was shocked. "You asked your NEIGHBOUR?" The old man replied, "Yep, but no matter what we tried, we couldn't get the damn jar open!" --------------------------------------------------------------A woman stopped by, unannounced, at her son's house. She knocked on the door then immediately walked in. She was shocked to see her daughter-in-law lying on the couch, totally naked. Soft music was playing, and the aroma of perfume filled the room. 'What are you doing?' she asked. 'I'm waiting for Justin to come home from work.' The daughter-in-law answered. 'But you're naked!' the mother-in-law exclaimed. 'This is my love dress,' the daughter-in-law explained. 'Love dress? But you're naked!' 'Justin loves me to wear this dress,' she explained. 'Every time he sees me in this dress, he instantly becomes romantic and ravages me for hours.' The mother-in-law left. When she got home she undressed, showered, put on her best perfume, dimmed the lights, put on a romantic CD, and lay on the couch waiting for her husband to arrive. Finally, her husband came home. He walked in and saw her lying there so provocatively. 'What are you doing? he asked. 'This is my love dress,' she whispered, sensually. 'Needs ironing,' he said, 'What's for dinner?' --------------------------------------------------------------I have a new pick up line that works every time. It doesn't matter how gorgeous or out of my league a woman might be, this line is a winner & I always end up in bed with them. Here's how it goes, 'Excuse me love, could I ask your opinion? Does this damp cloth smell like chloroform to you?' --------------------------------------------------------------Japanese scientists have now created a camera with such an immense shutter speed that it is now possible to take a photograph of a woman with her mouth closed.

Jokes h a h a :) A senior citizens group charters a bus for an overnight gambling casino trip. An elderly woman comes up to the bus driver and says, 'I've just been molested!' The driver felt that she had fallen asleep and had a dream.. So he tells her to go back to her seat and sit down. A short time later, another old woman comes forward and claims that she was just molested. The driver thought he had a bus load of old wackos, but who would be molesting these old ladies? About 10 minutes later, a third old lady comes up and says that she'd been molested too. The bus driver decides that he'd had enough and pulls into the first rest area. When he turns the lights on and stands up, he sees an old man on his hands and knees crawling in the aisles. 'Hey gramps, what are you doing down there?' says the bus driver. 'I lost my toupee. I thought I found it three times, but every time I tried to grab it, it gets up and runs away! ------------------------------------------------------------A nun walks into Mother Superior's office and plunks down into a chair. She lets out a sigh heavy with frustration. 'What troubles you, Sister?' asked the Mother Superior. 'I thought this was the day you spent with your family.' 'It was,' sighed the Sister. 'And I went to play golf with my brother. We try to play golf as often as we can. You know I was quite a talented golfer before I devoted my life to Christ.' 'I seem to recall that,' the Mother Superior agreed. 'So I take it your day of recreation was not relaxing?' 'Far from it,' snorted the Sister. 'In fact, I even took the Lord's name in vain today!' 'Goodness, Sister!' gasped the Mother Superior, astonished. 'You must tell me all about it!' 'Well, we were on the fifth tee... and this hole is a monster, Mother 540 yard Par 5, with a nasty dogleg right and a hidden green... and I hit the drive of my life. I creamed it. The sweetest swing I ever made. And it's flying straight and true, right along the line I wanted... and it hits a bird in mid-flight!'

'Oh my!' commiserated the Mother. 'How unfortunate! But surely that didn't make you blaspheme, Sister!' 'No, that wasn't it,' admitted Sister. 'While I was still trying to fathom what had happened, this squirrel runs out of the woods, grabs my ball and runs off down the fairway!' 'Oh, that would have made me blaspheme!' sympathised the Mother. 'But I didn't, Mother!' sobbed the Sister. 'And I was so proud of myself! And while I was pondering whether this was a sign from God, this hawk swoops out of the sky and grabs the squirrel and flies off, with my ball still clutched in his paws!' 'So that's when you cursed,' said the Mother with a knowing smile. 'Nope, that wasn't it either,' cried the Sister, anguished, 'because as the hawk started to fly out of sight, the squirrel started struggling, and the hawk dropped him right there on the green, and the ball popped out of his paws and rolled to about 18 inches from the cup!' Mother Superior sat back in her chair, folded her arms across her chest, fixed the Sister with a baleful stare and said... 'You missed the f***ing putt, didn't you?' ------------------------------------------------------------A blind man wanders into a lesbian biker bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a drink. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender, "Hey, do you want to hear a blonde joke?" The bar immediately falls absolutely quiet. In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, "Before you tell that joke, sir, I think it is only fair, given that you are blind, that you should know five things: The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat. The bouncer is a blonde girl. I'm a 6 foot tall, 175lb. blonde woman with a black belt in karate. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weightlifter. The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler. Now, think about it seriously, mister. Do you still want to tell that joke?" The blind man thinks for a second, shakes his head, and mutters, "No... not if I'm going to have to explain it five times�
